Off Topic: Favorite Music?

Recommended Posts

I recognized a few names, of course, then I saw *Dead Can Dance*. Absolutely awesome. I didn't know anyone here would be so eclectic in their tastes as I am. The offering is one I knew...

I hadn't heard this in years. Thank you. How Cosmic!

 

It was so nice to post it. Have you heard of Ruth MacKenzie? She is wonderful and does Kulning, (Swedish calling) I've seen her *Kalevala: Dream of the Salmon Maiden*, which is based on the ancient Scandinavian saga of a young woman escaping a loveless marriage by turning into a salmon. The music is quite exciting, and the singing strong.

Great choices, AJ, glad you're here. Just finished the stack! Coldplay and Green Day makes me nostalgic for the times my youngest son was home, before his USAF service. Music-- our common language..

 

I like alternative rock too. *All Time Low*, Weightless:

I'll have to look into that musician you talked about in your post. :D

Ray Anthony's (musician/bandleader) birthday. Worked with Glenn Miller 1940-1941. The claim to fame I recognize first. The Ray Anthony Orchestra:

 

 

 

Ray Anthony _wrote_ this song. It is not the best youtube video I've seen, but it appears the grandparents are shooting it, so let's be gracious:

It is historically in music, a very sad day... Many Artists died on this date. Jake does a wonderful tribute to them.

Patsy Cline won Arthur Godfrey's talent show on this date. Her winning song, Walking After Midnight:

Her signature song, Crazy:

 

 

 

I hope her personal life was happier than her songs. I guess such is the country girl's way. Sorry she left us too soon. What a wonderful voice.

Thank you so much, MM. It is a good number. The video is mesmerizing in it's way.

So glad you bothered to post something. Since my divorce, when I work late, I am usually in a very down mood coming home. Tonight was no exception. Funny, but I was taken for granted and pretty much ignored in my marriage, but like many women, single life doesn't agree with me either. Having a response means something to me. I am alone, but there are still people about. Good thing to remember.

 

I heard these on a Podcast coming home on the light rail. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers:
