Title: What's everyone listening to?
Post by: GabrieltheCelt on August 15, 2007, 07:07:32 PM
Hey y'all,

 Since music is such an integral part of our lives, I was wondering what everyone is listening to? I just discovered a Lebanese gal name Maya Nasri (Hubbaaaa hubba!). I'm usually spinning something Irish or Arabic, but I like almost anything except for gangsta rap and the really heavy metal stuff... Feel free to list religious and secular favorites!

Icky Thump by White Stripes
Momentary Lapse of Reason by Pink Floyd

Those are on pretty much constant rotation, though I typically just put the iPod on shuffle and let it play all day.

Boy, you aren't kidding about that Maya Nasri (http://www.yenoo.com/fr/modules/xcgal/albums/userpics/10001/maya-nasri.jpg)!  ;D

As far as music, I'm mostly into that "heavy metal stuff" ;) Here's what's in my playlist at the moment (which is pretty representative of what I'm usually listening to):

Yesman, by Colourfast
Shelter, by Corrosion of Conformity
Lightning to the Nations, by Diamond Head
Siberian Divide, by Mastodon
Breakpoint, by Megadeth
Orion, by Metallica
A New Level, by Pantera
Roots Bloody Roots, by Sepultura

I just got the DVD's of Rameau's "Les Indes Galantes" from netflix so I've listened to a bit of them (and if you want to see a clip of the last section "Les Sauvages" sent in (theoretically) the 18th century Native American life (well it is Baroque) I can post a YouTube link.  It's a mixed setting and I'll bet you didn't know that some soloists can sing with a pipe clamped in their teeth.

I'm also listening to:

Secret Garden
Electronic Space music
Native American (Coyote Oldman among others)
Waverly Consort- Songs from Colonial America
Medieval/Renaissance dances from "Orchesographie"
"Sesame Street Kareoke"/"Sesame Street Sing yourself Silly"/ "Put Down the Ducky" (well I do have a small child)
Caillou songs (same child)
Celtic Folk Music
Japanese instrumental both ancient and modern (but not J-pop)

Among other things.

Right now I'm on a Deep Purple kick and combing YouTube for various live songs from the band, particularly the classic Mark II line up.  I'm starting to write songs again in a very hard rock/heavy blues rock feel (lots of minor keys) and have come full circle back to Purple for inspiration.  Just listening to Blackmore attacking his guitar makes me find a new way to play every single time.  I only wish I could play the organ like Jon Lord, or even play the organ at all!  Oh, how I dream of finding that keyboard player who I can a) put up with and b) play like that. 

Ironically, the Bad Brains have also got a lot of playtime on my iPod.  Again, I suppose I'm looking for some heavy and hectic inspiration.

Melanie Gabriel, 'Broken Line' (dad Peter wrote it for her)
Ian Matthews' covers of 'Seven Bridges Road' and 'Man at the Mill' (met him a couple of times before he moved to Holland - he's cool)
Suzanne Vega, 'Rusted Pipe' and the version of 'Tom's Diner' with DNA (saw her in concert once)

Ever pentacostal I talk to essentially see 90% of secular music evil and they listen all to "christian"music with their stupifying hypnotic rhythms!! its good to see everyone listens to such a diverse range of music. Also just curious does anyone listen to christian music?

Also just curious does anyone listen to christian music?

Well yes, if you mean things like oohhhh Handel's "Messiah" (in full bore as recorded in the Washington National Cathedral- that place has a ring time in the 10+ seconds range) or Los Calchakis' "Missa Criolla" or William Byrd/Thomas Tallis/Thoma Luis Da Victoria/Vaughn Williams or many other composers.  ;) 

If you mean the St. Louis J-boys' music or similar, I don't care for it. Other people like it and that's OK.  (Some of it sounds like it could be advertising margerine and a lot of it is not written for group singing, too many swoops and irregular timing.  The German hymns and chorals with regular meter are *made* for congregational singing.)

Of the music I listed in my above post, the last few bands are Christian (Six Feet Deep, Tourniquet, and Underoath). Besides those three, I listen to a few other Christian bands, such as Becoming the Archetype, Extol, Betrayal, Deliverance, Stretch Arm Strong, Strongarm, and White Cross. Though being an atheist, I also like the evil, secular music ;D

Don't worry too much.  I'm sure someone has seen him alive somewhere. ;)  Of course, if Elvis IS still alive, he's the ripe old age of 72--he certainly isn't going to look like he did at 42.

for me, any music that is beautiful, illuminating, and/or truthful, well written, well executed is christian music.

What a strange coincendence!  Last week I listened to Bad Brains "I against I", what a great record.  I also listened to a compilation I have of all Bad Brains reggae songs pulled from all their releases, called "Reggae Brains".  I hadnt listened to Bad Brains for years before last week.

I'm the same way. I can't just 'tune it out' esp if I like what's playing. I can get so into the music that nothing else exists which tends to rile my girlfriend.  :o

 Regarding Orthodox music, what are the language preferences; does everyone  like to hear it in your language or another language? I like to know what's being said, so English is helpful. But I also like hearing other languages; it somehow makes the experience more other worldly.

Anybody heard of Gogol Bordello? I love their song "Start Wearing Purple". Both the song and the lead singer were featured throughout the movie "Everything Is Illuminated" with Elijah Wood... Apparently it's Gypsy/Punk music (which caused a strong negative reaction from my Romanian gilrfriend, which in turn, prompted me to download it as a ringtone ;) ).

Despina, do you mean David Draiman's "Forsaken"?  If so, I LOVE that song.  I got the Queen of the Damned soundtrack just for that.

Anybody heard of Gogol Bordello? I love their song "Start Wearing Purple". Both the song and the lead singer were featured throughout the movie "Everything Is Illuminated" with Elijah Wood... Apparently it's Gypsy/Punk music (which caused a strong negative reaction from my Romanian gilrfriend, which in turn, prompted me to download it as a ringtone ;) ). It's a really up-beat song...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_81l4DXlwM

I heard about them and I heard some of their music, because my daughter used to like them a few years ago, when she was in her late teens. What can I say... I don't get it... :( Too old... :(

The music is definately Arabesque. If I were to guess why, I would say it's either because she likes it or it's because of the Ottoman empire which itself was an amalgam of Arab/Persian influences. Musically speaking.

Does anyone else remember the Scottish band "Big Country"?  These boys rocked the house down!  I remember listening to them back in the mid to late eighties and thinking, "How'd they get their guitars to sound like bagpipes and tinwhistles?"  It's such a shame the lead singer hanged himself from clinical depression (exacerbated by the poison of rock 'n 'roll- alcohol), because these guys had the potential to give their Irish mates (U2) some serious competition.  For any of y'all not fortunate enough to have heard them, it's YouTube to the rescue:

In A Big Country (http://youtube.com/watch?v=hkr_2G3Jlko)  Their HUGE American breakout song

he has an awesome version of Close Your Eyes - just him and drums on Charlie Hunter's record "Songs From the Analog Playground." And the first five songs on his latest CD are all homeruns, especially "Tight" and a great new take on the Sinatra standard, "Won't You Change Partners and Dance With Me," although the Michael Franks tune: "Nightmoves" and the Randy Bachman tune "Undone" run a close second.

We bought "Clapton".  It's a 2 disc-set of his biggest hits in his 40+ muscial career.  First songs are with Cream, then his time with Blind Faith (remember "Presence of the Lord"?), then with Delayney & Bonnie, of course Derek and the Dominos, etc. then goes on to his hits when he wasn't part of a band (i.e. I Shot the Sheriff, Tears In Heaven, and on).
He's an incredible guitarist and musician; no wonder he's been inducted 3 different times into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

So when we're not listening to "Complete Clapton" for leisure, we're listening to:

The Syriac-Speaking People by Melih Duygulu.  It is a hardback with 2 cd.  Here's a synopsis.

The Syriac-Speaking People (Suryaniler) is 2-CD set with accompanying booklet presenting Syriac religious and folk music. The booklet, written in four languages (English, French, Turkish and Syriac), provides an introductory historical account of Syriac culture and identity. Analyzing Syriac history and culture under the umbrella of Christianity, it illustrates the important cultural factors that lay the groundwork for the supplementary CDs.
With 22 rich religious musical tracks, the first CD is a compilation of Syriac musical styles from around the globe, including India, Iran, Lebanon, Germany, Sweden and Brazil. Reflecting the enormous diversification of Syriac music, this anthology allows a listener to enjoy an array of musical styles in conformity with the liturgic principles applied in the Antioch Church and the Tur Abdin Church.

The second CD consists of 16 tracks of Syriac folk music. Using unique local styles of performers from regions where the eastern and western dialects are widespread, this CD is an excellent introduction to the exuberant array of Syriac folk music. The influence of Arabic and Kurdish styles adds to the range of intensity found in this collection.

If you're interested, it's available at Gorgias Press.

Grace and Peace,
Sophia

please explain, as I am not familiar with this performer; I am guessing it is some kind of humorous spoof-type thing? (is it the Wierd Al Yankovich of classical music?).
Sounds interesting.

Yes, P.D.Q. Bach (1807-1742)? is a spoof on classical music created by American composer and musicologist, Professor Peter Schickele (b. 1935).

I figured that it was something like that.   ;)  Rhythm is often soothing to newborns.  Remember they're used to hearing things like the mother's heartbeat as well as other internal sounds along with the softer muffled sounds from outside.

Not to alarm you, but once ours got past the first few weeks after birth, sometimes it was *loud* music that got them to sleep.  Our oldest would start to get upset while riding in the car because he was tired, and it was Beethoven turned up that got him to relax and sleep.  I don't know why, though it was suggested that it just stunned him.  :D

I have to say that we didn't do that.  The Loud Music treatment was when we were going somewhere on purpose and he would get to the "I'm-tired-but-I'm-cranky-so-I'm-NOT-going-to-just-drop-off-quietly-to-sleep" stage.

You know why babies fall asleep to loud music?  It's a mechanism for dealing with stress.  The loud music so overstimulates their nervous system they sort of shut down.

yes, I have heard of him; I am very glad to see this younger generation of "stand up" singers such as him, Michael Buble,
Kurt Elling, Tony Desare, John Pizzarelli come along; not since Mark Murphy, Michael Franks, Kenny Rankin and Harry Connick have there been so many promising young jazz-pop vocalists.

Someone is going to howl, but you just can't beat English boys choirs and Irish music for Christmas.   Even the most cheerful and upbeat Greek chant (is there any?) just isn't the same for Christmas.  For the fun Christmas cd I went with Charlie Brown Christmas, The Drifters, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (you never heard Jingle Bells like this before), Bing Crosby, Raffi and The Chieftans again.

We do have a knack for producing unique bands. Have you heard Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin? My brother is currently producing a record for them, and they are quite a relief from the usual Nickelback/Pearl Jam knockoffs so prevalent these days.

So there I was, just looking up if there were any videos on-line of The Chieftains and Derek Bell their late harper.  And next to one of them doing "The Star of the County Down" with Van Morrison was one of the same song by "Orthodox Celts".  They're Good.

Aside from 'Housefire', which I really like, I haven't heard much of their stuff.  I don't hit the clubs anymore so I rely on others to inform me.

The music stations around here are really lacking to say the least (in other words, they pretty much suck).  It's Country, Country, Top 40 pop, Country, Classic Rock (which isn't too bad, esp the Southern Rock), country, an Oldies station (which is old Top 40 pop) and Gospel.  So, if you like Country or Gospel or Gospel Country, y'all head on down to Springtown!  I'd love to see (hear ;)) a Jazz station as well as a more progressive/alternative station (Radiohead, Depeche Mode, STLYBY, Iron & Wine, Citizen Cope...) I will add though, that Bass Country station plays a lot of older and Classic country which is a plus (Cash, Hagerd, Straight, Williams etc...)

I'm glad you like it. It was surprising at first: Irish song, lead singer looking Irish somewhat, very good instrumentals, and then the accent on the singer who was (I think) working in some Irish pronunciation on top of his own.  A good sound, but definitely not a common one

Yep. That's about right. Agreed on the Jazz and prog/alt station. Aside from the occasional NPR programme, we're pretty much at a loss to find good jazz. Not even a good jazz club--all rock or rap downtown, all country around the outskirts. And our idea of alternative is Pearl Jam and Nickelback. ::) Oh, well, there's always Sirius. 8)

The local all-classical radio station, www.allclassical.org, is now running through this year's Top 89 Countdown (89.9 FM here) classical works, as voted on by the station's listeners--I voted.  They started the day after Christmas and will finish on New Year's Eve.  Right now at this moment, they just finished playing No. 48 on the list, Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2, and are now playing No. 47, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.  Good stuff for the classical buff. :)

my daughter is responsible for my latest listening choices.  That harmless  goth looking kid in my avitar....
She's studying music therapy and thinks I need to start playing piano again (I stopped because of pain and numbness in my hands-lupus)...."You can do chords",  says she, it's easy, (except I have no rhythm).  She had to be a human metrenome  and tap the beat on my back so I know when to change chords...I really can't play anything written after 1750.


but...She ALWAYS wins...I did it...and now have this horrible "earworm"  (not a real worm, it's slang for one of those songs you can't get out of your head-learn something new everyday, whether you want to or not).

I learned an oldie, that THIS "oldie" had never heard before.   I know lots of Bob Dylan, but this?????.
 
Someone, please tell me it's a sin, or harmful to my Orthodox Spirituality, anything so I can have a good reason to get out of this.  (if these words break some rules, feel free to delete...wish I could do the same with the song running through my head.


HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED


Oh God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God say, "No." Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"
Well Abe says, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God says, "Out on Highway 61."

Well Georgia Sam he had a bloody nose
Welfare Department they wouldn't give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard where can I go
Howard said there's only one place I know
Sam said tell me quick man I got to run
Ol' Howard just pointed with his gun
And said that way down on Highway 61.

Well Mack the Finger said to Louie the King
I got forty red white and blue shoe strings
And a thousand telephones that don't ring
Do you know where I can get rid of these things
And Louie the King said let me think for a minute son
And he said yes I think it can be easily done
Just take everything down to Highway 61.

Now the fifth daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren't right
My complexion she said is much too white
He said come here and step into the light he says hmm you're right
Let me tell the second mother this has been done
But the second mother was with the seventh son
And they were both out on Highway 61.

Now the rovin' gambler he was very bored
He was tryin' to create a next world war
He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor
He said I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes I think it can be very easily done
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61.


all I have to hear in my head is this song and  DDDA DDDA DDDA G over and over and over

"Rivers of Delight - American Folk Hymns from the Sacred Harp Tradition"
by the Word of Mouth Chorus

Sacred Harp is "shape note" singing, an americana tradition kept alive in the south; it is pan-denominational; the singing is quite enegetic and very moving; like spirituals, the simple, bible-based lyrics and imagery of much of this music will probably resonate more with Othodox than the more familiar protestant hymns

Yes, it is quite good.  It has enjoyed a resurgence of interest of late because of the amount of Sacred Harp that was featured in the movie, "Cold Mountain."  It does tend to remind me of some of the early 4 part harmonies of Russia before it became gradually more and more westernized.

Just got the news today that the mighty Maiden will be playing in very nearby Columbia, MD so I won't have to go to NY or Philly to see them on the Somewhere Back in Time tour. :) :) :) :) :)

On a better note, I'll finally get to see them with my brother who first introduced me to the band some 24 years ago.  It's been a LONG time coming and we'll get to see them on the rehash, so to speak, of the tour that first brought us together (before then, we fought like cats and dogs).

Currently listening to Martha Wainwright. She has an amazing, Suzie-Quatro-like voice.
I really like her song "B.M.F.A." since finding out the reason she wrote it. Apparently, her father, Loudon Wainwright announced at a concert in Scotland that his song "I'd Rather Be Lonely" was written about the time his daughter, Martha, was living with him when she was 14- what makes it worse was the fact that Loudon knew that his daughter was in the audience.  Martha wrote her song "B.M.F.A" years later as a response to this. Although the swearing is graphic in one verse towards the end, it's different to the kind of swearing one finds in, say, Eminem's lyrics. Martha swears at her father with a real sense of hurt rather than anger in her song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2pRxnhitsE

I'm currently using Pandora (http://www.pandora.com) to create the soundtrack of my workday.  It chooses songs based on your own seeded recommendations and after about a week of tweaking it.  The "quickmix" of my two main stations (one seeded primarily with American hardcore punk and the other primarily with NWOBHM bands) does a very good job of pumping out my favorites and surprising me with some new stuff all the time.

This is the message I get when I try to access Pandora:

Quote
Dear Pandora Visitor,

We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.

We believe that you are in Australia (your IP address appears to be XXX.XX.XX.XX). If you believe we have made a mistake, we apologize and ask that you please contact us at pandora-support@pandora.com

If you are a paid subscriber, please contact us at pandora-support@pandora.com and we will issue a pro-rated refund to the credit card you used to sign up. If you have been using Pandora, we will keep a record of your existing stations and bookmarked artists and songs, so that when we are able to launch in your country, they will be waiting for you.

We will be notifying listeners as licensing agreements are established in individual countries. If you would like to be notified by email when Pandora is available in your country, please enter your email address below. The pace of global licensing is hard to predict, but we have the ultimate goal of being able to offer our service everywhere.

We share your disappointment and greatly appreciate your understanding.

At my house there is A LOT of Bluegrass (along with his dobro in accompaniment) in the air. Its my husband's passion. We are both quite fond of Planxty, The Chiftens, Enya, Clannad and that sort of music in general.  My favorite band is called Hunting McCleod. They blend traditional Scottish music with a modern sound. The band has Bagpipes AND an electric guitar!  Sometimes I like to put on Soft Rock, or is it now called Light Rock? Whatever, that stuff, but I don't have a favorite group. I have just discovered The Ark and The Rudder. I like that too. But, mostly, it is Bluegrass around here.

Sounds like y'all know what music is.  I love bluegrass!  Esp Ricky Scaggs with Kentucky Thunder and Rhonda Vincent.  And if you like Hunting McCleod you might like Wicked Tinckers.  Instead of an electric guitar they play the didgeridoo.  As far as the other groups you listed; nothing sweeter than music from dear old Eireann.

I was thinking of getting a group started to sing in church:
The Orthodox Eight.

Wa'ja think?

IMO: Some of the tones would sound really neat in barbershop harmony. (Russian tones would probably sound even better!)

Goin' old school lately with George Benson's Breezin' and Chuck Mangione's Feels So Good
The very best of "smooth jazz" before there was such a thing as smooth jazz (which became a caricature of the good, early stuff).
Although alot of the CTI label jazz throughout the 70's specialized in that funky jazz with artists like Stanley Turrentine, George Benson, Joe
Farrell and others. Although neither Breezin' or FSG were on that label.

Nothing in particular at the moment, but I like all kinds of music ecsept for most country, and heavy metal and absolutely no rapping.  Mostly thouhg, I like Irish music, but even then I can't stand the button accordian that many Irish artists have adopted.  If any are you interested, you can check youtube and listen to the Cheiftains and the Clancy Bros.

Thank goodness these posts have dates attached to them as I was was utterly aghast at "my" thoughts, or at least the way in which "I" worded them.  You see, I have a bad memory and must jot down all my passwords in order to carry on with most of my tasks.  My 13 year old nephew happened to be visiting me on the day in question and was able to chance upon my password for this forum.  Grammar aside, I can't say I disagree with him though. :D

Though I believe this type of music to be 'flamenco' (I could be incorrect), I really enjoy it.  The song is called "Tico Tico" and I first encountered it while listening to Paco de Lucia, but this young man's talent, while not as flamboyant as Paco, es muy magnifico!

 Tico Tico  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZVEWv5nPdY)

 Tico Tico performed by Paco  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=To09Km0y8ic)

For those of you thinking you're not familiar with Paco, perhaps you'll remember the Brian Adams song "Have you really ever loved a woman?"  If so, Paco is featured sitting in the video and plays the classical guitar throughout the song.

 Have you ever really loved...  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pJoMeEg8cM)

Well, it is flamenco, but of a decidedly Caribbean variety. True Flamenco originates from the Roma peoples around Andalusia and has a much straighter rhythm. Paco de Lucia plays with a more syncopated rhythm, and the steel drums are a nice touch. Very interesting; it takes a true master to bend a song like this, hammer on a new genre and actually pull it off so well.

Okay, that was corny. I couldn't resist.

If you give it a fair chance and allow yourself to embrace modern American popular culture, you'll find out you quite enjoy it. Not that it should be to the exclusion of Classical Music, especially from the Romantic era, such as Rachmaninoff...but it can be appreciated in its own way.

Quite a bit of Rachmaninov (The Bells, Symphonic Dances), Vaughan Williams and John Tavener. I must try and hunt out some music by Arvo Pärt who I've heard recommended here. Tavener seems to get a bit more minimalistic with each new composition.

Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2

Sergei Rachmaninoff is one of my all-time favorite composers, and I love his Concerto 2 (and also 3). Here are some pretty good performances:

Speaking of the killers, I just read in the latest Rolling Stone magazine
Mistake #1: Reading Rolling Stone.

Quote
that Brandon Flowers (the killers singer) is a devout Mormon.
Mistake #2: "killers" should be written "Killers'."

Quote
For some reason, this creeped me out.
Mistake #3: Paying attention to celebrities' religion.

Quote
I guess the Mormons have the Osmans, Napoleon Dynamite and the killers as a claim to fame.  :D
Mistake #4: Their name is the Osmonds.

So why be so judgmental of others?

Andis,

I can only strive to be as humble and non judgmental as you  :D

The soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I love that CD. I once had a priest who said if the Orthodox Churches in America were to create their own tones they should look no further than the music of the "old plain song" of the south and mountain regions to come up with tones that work with American English. An excellent example would be "Down to the River to Pray", "O Death", and "Po' Lazarus".  All of them done accapella and with  deep spiritual movement in the songs similar to the tones found in the Orthodox Church for impact to the soul of the listener.

We've only been together since October, so no album yet, but we did record four songs in January for two upcoming releases, one a split 7" with another band due out this spring and a full fledged 45rpm single later in the year.

You can check out really really rough demos of two songs on our Myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/thesnallygasters).  Those are basically myself, a drum machine, and our singer in my bathroom (great reverb in there) recorded via a USB mic and multitrack recording software.  As I said, they're really rough, especially "You Were Loved".  Horrible singing in that one! ;)

Like Bob Marley sings, it's a "Natural Mystic!" With a divine sign like this, it was destined that I should wind up in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church!

Bob had some great lyrics, full of biblical references. I think he was a modern day David, playing reggae Psalms to the glory of JAH (God). Here are a couple  of my favorite Marley lyrics:

"When you get down and you quarrel every day
You're saying prayers to the devil I say."

[Positive Vibration]

"Someone will have to pay
For the innocent blood
That they shed every day
Children mark my words
It's what the Bible say!"

Here is a link to a video of one of my favorite reggae songs by the legendary reggae band Black Uhuru.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsnR3mKHX5Y&feature=related

This song is called Abortion, and in true Rasta style they don't mince words. Mykal Rose, the lead singer, begins by exclaiming "First degree murder!" Listen for other lyrics such as,

"Oh what a shame to see my Black sisters going down the drain."

"Woman, you can feel it!"

"I want my little youth, I want my little girl."

"Don't deal with abortion!"

A nice video, a great song, and a great message!!! Hope you enjoy.

 The video's really cool too.  Never thought I'd see Iggy Pop, Flea, Kris Kristofferson and Kanye West singing the same song, but that's the influence Johnny Cash has.

Good call. Great song.

No, he downloaded some flight sim stuff that was actually a virus. So I had all this horrible S&M and homosexual porn all over my computer that wouldn't come off. So if that computer is connected in anyway to a power source or the internet it is full of graphic porn. Then to try and get rid of the porn he erased my entire hard drive. (which still didn't get all the porn of).

Have you heard of Alan Stivell? Being a "Celt," I think you will love this guy. A friend of mine that I met in Mexico 20 years ago turned me on to him. I listened to the tape he gave me until it literally broke. I tried for years to find a CD by him here in the Sates, and eventually succeeeded. Then, alas, I lent it to a friend and never got it back!

But I'm glad to see him on Youtube. Now I will try to order another CD. I can't understand the lyrics, because they apparrently are in (Gaelic?) But his is some of the most unique music I've ever heard. Haunting, powerful, rhythmic, and ethereal. Maybe you could help me understand the lyrics.

Let me know what you think.

 Thanks for bringing Mr. Alan to my attention.  I always appreciate being exposed to new genre's and artists.  But to be honest with you, I personally thought his style sounded a bit new agey and couldn't get the language as it didn't sound like Gaelic.  I thought it sounded sort of like French and then I Googled him and found I wasn't too far off; he's a Breton from Brittany- meaning he's a Celt from a particular area in France. Being a Celt, his language is Celtic, but it's not Gaelic.  As for his music, I wouldn't necessarily classify it as Celtic per se, though it does incorporate much of Breton culture.  Mr. Alan is said to incorporate many different styles in his music and I think that's very obvious.  When listening to Celtic music (which is a good deal of the time as I'm learning to play the feadóg [the tinwhistle]), I prefer the music of Éire i.e Ireland.

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty much a strictly conscious reggae man these days, but Alan Stivell always stirs my spirit. Some of his stuff does sound a bit New Agey, which I don't care for either. But a lot of his stuff is pretty raw but still very tight musically. Check out some of his harp instrumentals. Beautiful stuff. He really incorporates a unique array of instruments which I find uniquely appealing.

BTW, were you able to decipher any of his lyrics? I wonder if he has any Christian lyrics, or if its mostly Celtic folk lyrics. I'm interested to know.

I had a good friend who played bagpipes and all kinds of Irish flutes that I forget the names of. He toured briefly with Michael Card, but got fed up with him pretty fast. He was a talented guy. We lost touch over the years, but he had never heard of Alan Stivell until I brought him to his attention. He loved it.

On another note... I was a huge U2 fan in the early 80's. My friends laughed at me when I told them about U2, 'cause they'd never heard of them. I first heard them on an alternative college radio station in Atlanta, where I'm from. I wasn't a Christian at the time, but I remember being impressed by the fact that they all professed to be Christians (at least 3 of them anyway). Now I can't stand them. After about their 4th album I thought they really sold out. Too bad, cause they were good when they were young and hungry.

I'm no fan of Joan Baez's politics, but she blows me away with this song here called "Virgin Mary." http://www.rhapsody.com/joan-baez/tracks.html?pagestart=650 [Click on  #652 "Virgin Mary"] It comes from her little known Christmas album called "Noel." The entire CD is beautiful, and all of the songs are Christian classics such as "O come, O come, Emmanuel," "Ave Maria," "Mary's Wandering," "What Child is This" etc. But "Virgin Mary" is my favorite of all.

If you decide to buy the CD, make sure to get the remastered addition that has the bonus tracks. There should be 23 tracks in all. The original release didn't have "Virgin Mary" on it. It may take some time to come in the mail, but it's worth the wait.

I wished I liked her other stuff, but I'm just not a folk music guy. Yet this one Cd of hers is one of my all time favorite CD's!

To sing these songs the way she does, she must have some degree of Christian consciousness. May God bless her for this beautiful work. I wish she had done more like this.

Hope you enjoy it.

I'll sing you a song of peace and love,
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.
To the land that reigns all lands above.
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.
May peace and plenty be her share
Who kept our homes from want and care,
God bless Mother England is our prayer.
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.

Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.
So we say, Hip Hooray!
Come and listen while we pray.
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.

When we were savage, fierce and wild
She came like a mother to her child.
She gently raised us from the slime
Kept our hands from hellish crime,
And sent us to Heaven in her own good time.

Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.
So we say, Hip Hooray!
Come and listen while we pray.
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.

Now our fathers oft were very bad boys.
Guns and pikes are dangerous toys.
From Bearna Baol to Bunker Hill
They made poor England weep her fill,
But ould Brittania loves us still!

Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.
So we say, Hip Hooray!
Come and listen while we pray.
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.

Now Irishmen, forget the past!
And think of the time that's coming fast.
When we shall all be civilized,
Neat and clean and well-advised.
And won't Mother England be surprised?

Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.
So we say, Hip Hooray!
Come and listen while we pray.
Whack fol the diddle all the di do day.

Depeche Mode: Sounds of the Universe
A friend recently gave me a copy of it.  Though there are a few songs that I liked almost immediately; "Wrong", "Come Back" and "Peace", the rest of the cd is too experimental for my liking.  One reviewer over on Amazon said something to the effect that it sounds like it was made in the '80's and I tend to agree (I can definitely hear the Kraftwerk connection as was pointed out).  I've heard enough of DM and Dave Gahan's solo stuff to believe that Martin Gore had more influence on this latest effort.  I just hope their next endeavor sounds more like "Playing the Angel" or, dare I hope, "Violator"?...

"Peace" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cB4z44VXTqI&feature=related

"Wrong" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2GaCnAiuvo (I think the vid was filmed inside Superman's 'Fortress of Solitude'.  :D

Does anyone like Lisa Hannigan? I just stumbled upon her beauty and work-I can really, really relate to this,"I Don't Know":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSaPbVjcrp4

Not bad!  I think I like Ozzy's version a little more though; it's got more "happy" and "spunk".  That Ozzy; he's such a happy-go-lucky guy.  ;D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBbk7t-mqDM

Well...I don't know...to me Lisa is more wholesome and sweet and familiar in spirit...I'm not used to such as portrayed on the Ozzy video. That scares me (likely because I'm not used to that type of music or people).

I thought maybe you were! The contrast was just too glaringly extreme!! But at any rate, it forced me to listen to some of this Ozzy of whom I had actually heard but never his music. And I was grateful to learn that it's not one of  those devastating lost opportunties of life... ;)

I used to love these cats back in HS... Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Schultz! :)

"My War" got daily play when I was in high school.  I've rediscovered "Loose Nut" and it's one of my favorite albums at the moment.  It suffers from thin production, but, thankfully, "Who's Got the 10 1/2" was recorded on that tour and most the the album is played live with better production.

- "cerkiew" [tser-kyev] - for EO and Greek Catholics (but "kościół" can also be used)
- "zbór" [zboor] - for Protestants
- "molenna" [mo-len-naw] - for Old Believers

Have you heard their recording of the Paraklisis to our Lady Pantanassa? There's a really long track on that CD (about 20mins) that is probably my favourite ever recording of theirs. I can't find the text for it anywhere though. Any ideas?

A few years ago I majored in Slavic Studies at the university and one time, during the lecture in the Russian History class, our Professor asked us if we had heard of Rasputin, knew who he was etc. One of the guys instantly called out in a very loud voice, "Russia's greatest love machine!".

BTW, historically, pretty much everything is accurate in their narrative, except, of course, the affair with Her Majesty. That was a hoax, invented by the pro-German party within the Tsar's court (maybe even personally by his own uncle, Great Prince Nikolay Nikolayevich), and enthuiastically spread by various people who were for whatever reason mad at Nicholas II.

Great pictures, especially of Prince Yousoupoff and Purishkevich (the assassins).

J. S. Bach's B Minor Mass.  Who says Lutherans can't write good church music?

Bach is my favourite too. Together with Handel.
Have you listened to Bach's passacaglia and fugue in C minor for organ? That's one of my favourites among all the other wonderful compositions of his.

Bach was a very pious Christian and very modest, far from vainglory. He said that if music is not written to God's glory, then it's nothing but satanic creak. This means, he himself composed only to God's glory. He would write the letters SDG on the sheets of his music, that is, Soli Deus Gloria = Glory to God only.

Best of Journey

I find it sad that Steve Perry can sing higher than I can.
:D

Sad, but entertaining.  ;)
Listen to you people, making fun of the disabled. Just because Steve Perry has Barry Gibbs' Disorder doesn't mean he's any less of a person. Why he can't help but think so highly of himself and sing in a ridiculous register: Just look at the disease's most famous patient. Perry is doomed to die a sad, lonely, rich man, and y'all have the nerve to make fun of him for his condition. Shame on you both.

Hey, if I'm willing to buy albums from both Journey and the Bee Gees, I think I've paid my way into making fun of them.  Sort of like paying $5 to lob a pie at your boss at the company picnic.   ;D
You also have a Bee Gees album? My hero :-*

Full disclosure: I am in substance abuse services. In any case, compulsive and/or self-destructive behavior can easily lead to addiction. With chemical dependency, the brain is altered to a sufficient degree so that the addict loses control. Whiskey Lullaby is about such a tragedy. I suspect faith would have saved them both.

A beautiful Paschal (Easter) hymn sung in Old Slavonic. The words are below the link. I find it very peaceful.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yup8_ecrFks

The Angel cried unto the lady, full of grace: 'O pure Virgin, rejoice! and again I say, rejoice!

for thy Son is risen from the grave on the third day. And He hath raised all the dead.' O ye

people, be joyful!

Shine, shine, O new Jerusalem! for the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. Dance, now,

dance and be glad, O Sion! Do thou exult, O pure Theotokos, in the Resurrection of thy

Son!

No, I didn't watch the Simpsons last Sunday, a special showing of the episode where Bart does this dance and Michael Jackson is given posthumous credit for writing the music.  I actually just discovered this video.

FYI, I understand that the Simpsons will show Episode 3.01, "Stark Raving Dad", this Sunday evening in memory of MJ--Jackson guest stars in this episode.  It's said that MJ was a big fan of the show.

Chevelle Franklin Salvation


Chevelle Franklin is an extremely talented vocalist who used to make slack dancehall songs, but now she devotes her abundant talents to praising Christ. This song is great because it combines a great dancehall rhythm with a strong Christian message. Listen closely, it's powerful!
http://video.aol.com/video-detail/salvation/3907898393

[For those unfamiliar with reggae, "slack" refers to music that contains negative messages such as sex and violence. "Conscious" music is that which uplifts, heals, and accentuates the positive. "Dancehall" is a style of music that originated in Jamaica and was based on Ska and Reggae rhythms. The Danchall is equivalent to the "Club" in America, and so the message of Dancehall music was not "conscious" but usually "slack." However, conscious reggae artists such as Garnet Silk, Everton Blender, Sizzla, and Capleton have revolutionized the Dancehall scene by combining Dancehall beats and rhythms with a spiritually positive message. Chevelle Franklin has done the same thing with much of her Gospel music, and this song is a great example.]
 Sorry for the music lesson. :-[

We no know how we and dem ah gone work it out..

But someone will have to pay
For the innocent blood
That they shed every day,
Oh, children, mark my word;
It's what the Bible say, yeah! yeah!

But in the beginning Jah created everything,
Giving man dominion over all things.
But now it's too late,
You see, men has lost their faith ,
Eating up all the flesh from off the earth!

I was listening to Inxs's album "Switch" on my ipod while working out at the gym. I was curious to see if Inxs had anything new coming up and checked online. I was shocked to find they fired their new singer. I am begining to wonder if this will be the end of them.

Agreed! I rarely watch a show avidly, but this one and Lost I find enthralling to the last minute. We watch nearly all the pilots, but most of the time we're very disappointed, and never watch a second episode. The only new show we watched this past season was Kings, starring Ian McShane, which set the story of King David in the modern world. Excellently done, and I'm sorry to see it's been cancelled.

I don't keep up with most of the Big 3 network shows anymore, but I discovered Big Bang Theory through an online article (http://www.slate.com/id/2210635?nav=wp (http://www.slate.com/id/2210635?nav=wp)) about Sheldon and Aspergers.  Ever since then I've been watching.  I have two seasons to make up for, so I don't mind the reruns--they're all new to me.  Sheldon is an extreme case, but I identify with him in some things; I'm also used to hanging around geeks and gamers.  So it's just as fun to watch this show as it is to read Dork Tower comics.  :)

I'm not sure which link works best, so you may need to try them both.

They were both part of the Celtic folk revival that took place in the 1970s.  I know they have performed together several times, since Alan Stivell is one of the kings of the celtic harp, and it fits very well into that Tri Yann's style of folk/folk rock.  Both have become rallying points for people in Brittany, as some battle for greater recognition of their unique culture and language within France.  They are both also very popular in Quebec, since so many can trace their roots back to Brittany.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3264319521662612331  A video of them together.

Tri Yann just means "Three Jeans", after the founding members Jean-Louis, Jean, and Jean-Paul.

I'm a huge fan of Alan Stivell as well, I love Celtic folk music.  Symphonie Celtique still ranks amongst one of my favourite albums!

I love that song! No idea what they're singing, but I love it. I first heard that song when I was 19 years old and on a Protestant missionary trip to Mexico City (about 1990). I made friends with this group of Mexican hippies that shared a love of music with me. I kept playing my reggae and blues tapes for them, which they loved. But one guy was really deep into music like me, and he said that he had something special he wanted me to hear. So one afternoon he took me and another friend of his on a two hour hike up into the mountains overlooking Mexico City. He brought his "boom box" and some very potent ganja. We smoked up, and as the sun was setting over Mexico City he put in this tape of ethereal music that completely blew my mind. It was Alan Stivell! So, you can imagine how I have loved it ever since. And I am amazed to find someone else who has even heard of him! Wow.

Brezhoneg is a really bizarre language, both when you hear it and when you look at the words.  It has a lot in common with Cornish and Welsh, but you can notice a distinct "continental" influence to it (French, Latin, etc).  Luckily, a lot of their songs are translated into French or German (due to the fan base), and I at least have a basic grasp of French and some German.

Quote
Three young sailors tra la la la la la la
Three young sailors went on a journey

The wind pushed them
To Newfoundland

Beside the old, stone mill
They dropped anchor

And in this mill
There was a servant

She asked me
Where we knew each other from?

In Nantes, the market
We chose a ring

The engagement ring
And we were about to be married

We will marry
Even though we don't have much (wealth)

My mother, you live comfortably
You don't know who is in need

We have neither a house nor straw
Nor a bed to sleep in at night

We have neither a sheet nor a blanket
Nor a pillow underneath our heads

We have neither a bowl or a spoon
Nor what is needed to make bread

We will follow the partridge
We will sleep on the ground

We will follow the woodcock
When the sun rises, it flees

My song is complete
Anyone who knows it, continue

Far from perfect, but the basics.   :P

I absolutely love "revival" folk music from Europe, especially the Celtic ones.  In Quebec, amongst some of the older generations, many of the traditional songs that Stivell and Tri Yann have performed, are quite common as drinking songs.   :laugh:  Especially this gem.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7NgxAS-owA

Yup, I love both Altan and The Corrs!  Malicorne, Baraban, Pandemonio, Corvus Corax (I love their work!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QWS1xUkUaA, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWruBwPNBOs), In Extremo's earlier pieces, etc. are all groups (with folf or folk-ish elements) I really enjoy too.

I also saw you posted Nothing Else Matters before, have you ever heard this version?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbTozgoj9OQ  (Their One cover is great too)

Me too, Douglas. Sometimes I get a bit homesick for that simple religion where the entire congregation heartily sung such acapella hymns together in beautiful four-part harmony...And for pleasure of a Sunday evening the youth would gather in a member's home for an evening of such singing and a snack afterwards...and were content with such forms of pure and wholesome entertainment...

"The boys of Liverpool, When we safely landed,
Called myself a fool; I could no longer stand it;
Blood began to boil, Temper I was losin',
Poor ould Erin's isle They began abusin',
"Hurrah my soul," sez I, My shillelagh I let fly;
Some Galway boys were by, Saw I was a hobble in,
Then with a loud hurray, They joined in the affray.
We quickly cleared the way, For the rocky road to Dublin."

I can totally see (and hear) what you're saying.  He's certainly a wizard with Beethoven.

I still think Ronnie James did his best work with Blackmore in Rainbow, but that's probably because I'm a guitar player.  I still get goosebumps when I hear "Kill the King".

Well, Dio was certainly backed by a better guitar player in Ritchie Blackmore than he ever was in Dio.  I really liked Vivian Campbell and thought that Craig Goldy was just OK and that 16 year old was just bad.  I liked the early Rainbow stuff myself.  My favorite was "Stargazer" from Rising!  Awesome song.  And that whole lineup was good.  You had Cozy Powell (RIP) on drums, Blackmore on Guitar and Carey on keys.  Jimmy Bain wasn't much of a bass player, imho, but adequate to the task.

Not generally well known for his symphonic compositions, I'm listening to Schumann's 1st Symphony in B-flat "Spring" conducted by Leonard Bernstein and performed by the Wiener Philharmoniker. Schumann's symphonies, along with Mendelssohn's, sort of fill the gap between the romanticism of Beethoven and Schubert and the later romanticism of Brahms and Dvorak which which parallels the new leaps being made by Wagner, Bruckner and Mahler.

Mahler, though I've finally started to learn to appreciate some of his music, is really post-Romantic.  The last of the Romantics, age wise, was Dvorak.

Mahler, though I've finally started to learn to appreciate some of his music, is really post-Romantic.  The last of the Romantics, age wise, was Dvorak.
I can see that. I put him in the same category as Debussy and Ravel, composers who began their careers as Romantics, then made the transition to Impressionism. Certainly Mahler's style is a departure from traditional Romantic themes, and I can definitely see him as a bridge between the Romantics and modern composers such as Stravinsky.

*LOL*  Well, I don't have a distinct genre per se--I just listen to whatever (exceptions being Country, Rap, R & B, and Classical).   I love the Scorpions--I do not think there isn't a song by them that they actually released into mainstream that I haven't liked (that's kind of how Def Leppard is with me also).

Do you have a favorite?  I like Pop a Top, Mercury Blues and Midnight in Montgomery. But, I like almost everything he puts out!  "Well, way down yonder on the Chattahoochie..."  :D

My all time favorite song of his is Midnight in Montgomery its so haunting. And I love how it incorporates images from old Hank Williams senior songs.

Today's playlist starts off with the soundtrack to "Shock Treatment", which, while having a better overall feel than Richard O'Brien's previous songwriting in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" just doesn't have the "hits" that its latter soundtrack had.

Wow...I have a copy of Shock Treatment..no one else has even heard of it!

Metallica - The Prince

I much prefer the original version of this song by Diamond Head. I still don't understand why Metallica chopped out the 2nd solo from this song. When I think of Metallica covering Diamond Head, though, I always think of something that Brian Tatler said in an interview. Of Metallica's cover of Am I Evil?, he said that he thought the DH original was classier. This coming from a guy who had a song on the same album titled Sucking My Love (wanna guess what it was about?  :P ). Yeah, you guys were really classy, Brian! Um... anyway... while I was writing this Windows Media Player moved on to a new song...

Trust me, I hear you on that one.  For the last two weekends, we have had at least 2 days where we did not even see 0 (and last week, we had about 4 straight days of that).  It started out at -9 this morning, but got up to 36.  It is supposed to get up to 41 tomorrow.  Now, if the snow would just melt. . .

By the way, I have been listening to the CD "Christ Is Born!  Give Glory!: Hymns, Chants and Carols" by the Archangel Voices.  It is beautiful.  I got it at the parish bookstore and I may try the other two CD's of the Archangel Voices that are there as well.  I also want to buy the Fr.

You're telling me.  He's one of the few artists my dad often played when I was small that I've retained.  Him and the Monkees.  I got ahold of some of his stuff a little earlier this year when I started to become nostalgic for the music of my childhood (it was really hard to hunt down some early 90s Newsboys).  The Monkees, however have always been in my collection  :D.

Finally brought out the ol' Clancy Brothers Christmas album (Boulabas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWe-cI3w9wE), the opening track).  Between this and the Irish Rovers "Irish Christmas" record, my wife will be pulling her hair out.  Being a mall worker, she's not a fan of Christmas music and she really doesn't like much traditional Irish music.

Needless to say, these get alot of play when she's at work and not at home :)

Rachmaninoff's Great Vespers (Robert Shaw version). Even though an Orthodox choir would have been more authentic (Shaw's abrupt rests may have been esthetically pleasing but sounded abnormal to my ears), the music itself conveys the basic idea of many of its hymns, even without any words, for example as in "Come Let Us Worship," "Bless the Lord O My Soul," and "Lord, Let Thy Servant Depart in Peace."

Pantera - Planet Caravan

I put Pantera on because I wanted something angry, and that was as angry as I had. Now it's at their cover of Planet Caravan. I always liked their cover more than the original Sabbath version. I know, I'm a blasphemer. I liked SRV's cover of Little Wing more than the Hendrix version as well.  *shrugs*

Thanks for the impetus.  It must have been 15 years since I last listened to that version of the song, or seen its weird video for that matter.  Strangely, I share the same opinion as yours here, and that is regardless of the fact I eventually concluded that Pantera and this new post-thrash sound just would not suit my tastes.  I decided to stick to the bloody roots as those Brazilians would have said, contrary to the way ironically they actually decided to take off.  Needless to say, I'm been disgruntled for quite some time now.

At any rate, those preferences are nothing to worry about.  However had you said that you have something for the cover of Holy Diver played by Killswitch Engage over the original, then you would certainly merit being called the lowest of reprobates.

Adam Sandler - Lunch Lady (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_-KbstEG4E)

Haven't heard that song in a long time. Typical mindless surfing got me to the song. Somehow I stumbled on a picture at Google of Emmanuelle Chriqui. Beautiful girl. :angel: I ended up at her wiki page, and found out that she was in the Adam Sandler movie You Don't Mess with the Zohan, so I went to the movie's wiki page. I then went on to Sandler's wiki page. And there I recognized his CD They're All Gonna Laugh at You! which I used to own, so I went to that page. That reminded me of some of his songs, so I went to youtube and looked one of them up. Mindless surfing, dumb songs, good looking Moroccan Jewish chicks. I guess my evening is complete.  :P

Also I listen to a man named constantine zalalas; they are lectures made by a greek othodox father, they called him 'St John Chrysostom of the 21 century' his name is, Father Athanasios Mitilinaios, constantine zalalas only translated a good amount of his huge collection of lectures.

Over 201 tracks with 17 chapter and 10 more or less tracks per chapter
Very easy to listen to narration.

Its just, 'Itunes, shuffle, get on with my day, and pray it goes to a track which edifies me'

It's pretty much our party theme, though it obviously never happens. We all have too much self control for that sort of party. (thankfully)
I think we (our friends) like her as an artist because she doesn't sound horrible (like some female artists we've heard) and she's our age.
Initially I didn't like the song but it grew on me, I don't listen to anything else she's done because it gets a little too explicit/sexual in it's content, but that song is pretty good. Much better IMO than Lady Gaga.

"All By Myself"

Original recording by Eric Carmen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KlhhvfAhM4)

1996 cover by Celine Dion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wedX64L_j9E)

After his recording of this song hit the charts in 1975, Carmen had to make arrangements with Sergei Rachmaninoff's estate to give the composer proper credit for much of the music, since the verses quote almost verbatim the melodic theme from the Adagio sostenuto middle movement of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor.  Carmen thought mistakenly that it was already in the public domain.

I still have the first podcast I dl'd off that station on my PC, an interview with a former Rastafarian.

Imagine my surprise to find out Bob Marley had been baptized Ethiopian Orthodox not long before his death.

I had known the Rastas were an offshoot of the Ethiopian Orthodox, but was surprised that the world's most famous Rasta had converted back.

Currently listening to- Redemption Song.

Yes I! Brother Bob is Orthodox!

Do be careful, though, about saying Rastafari is an offshoot of the Ethiopian Orthodox.

An offshoot in the same way that JWs or Mormons would be an offshoot of Protestantism... or perhaps more aptly Branch Davidian or the Moonies would be considered an offshoot.  As in, not a sect of the church itself, but rather a system of belief that incorporates Ethiopian Orthodox elements while wildly diverging from actual teaching.

I like some of the old school doom metal, but I can never get over the cheesy vocals and bad lyrics of Candlemass. I mean, it's hardly unusual for a metal band to have bad lyrics, but when they're being broadcast in an operatic falsetto it's too much to bear.

Ah, classic doom...

I agree, having often found myself wishing, in this case and others, for a band to have fixed their vocals and lyrics operation if not to have stuck only to instrumental performances. To give an example, I've rarely cared to listen to the so-called extreme genres beyond thrash, but I've not a few times been upset to see the instrumental, technical proficiency that death metal can ably muster paired up with a vocal style characterised by death growls, which I find intensely irritating.

In other situations, you may find a vocalist who you would wish would actually respect the potential he has.  Take the kings of cheese, Manowar, and the typical lyrical content they deliver.  Apart from that mess however, Eric Adams, the man who can really pierce the air with his screams, has a formidable set of pipes that is wasted on what-have-you.

Speaking of which (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJ0sW7KOFhU), here's some Manowar (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_UGFLT0VMY) for you.   Hail and all that.

Incidentally, I've started thinking that Warriors of the World would make a fitting anthem for Latin traditionalists.

OK, I've got four CD's from my 20something daughter-Cool Music for Mom 1, 2, 3, and Music for Mom to Learn by heart-she is trying to educate me and broaden  my horizons...and because I have been working with my guitar and singing again she says I need to get away from all that  V(a part of a woman's anatomy) music...her term for female-singer/songwriter/folk/blues I listen to-not because it's feminist-but it just a girl an a guitar and rep of the same song over and over-according to her.

Well I started with the Learn by heart CD because that is the one I am going to be quizzed on-18 songs, 12 artists.-I am taking them one at a time. I like to learn a bit about the band-and lyrics and all

#1-I will survive-by CAKE yes it's a remake of the old 70's? disco song-but more gritty(with some profanity) and with an edge and sharp as a knife...an improvement-musicical arrangement and all, over the original in my opinion-but anything would be.

The only other experience I have with CAKE is a guilty favorite Called "Sheep go to heaven-goats go to hell".  fun and campy, and if your looking for something deeper-it's might be there-music and phrasing give some of it dubious interpretations (it could be a musical version of the verse "Vanity Vanity...all is Vanity".

There is also a popular online arcade game using the song-you try to shoot the goats (who go up and flames-and to hell, I assume), spare the sheep (who also go up in flames if you accidently hit them).  :o
I found it and sent her-she thought it was such a hoot-she says it's her first stop when she is stressed-being a college student-I guess it beats drinking, smoking and whatever it is they do for stress management on college campus these days.
It's rather tame compared to others things I've seen.http://www.arcadetown.com/sheepgotoheaven/gameonline.asp

 :)I think I like CAKE...fun and some serious socio-political-theological commentary is some of there stuff-and the music is not simplistic-great bridges and unexpected combos of chord progression and syncopation (a little thing to look for-good sign they know something about music).

keep you posted on my new music education

Bonus Jack White track=We're Going to Be Friends-very sweet


btw, looking up his back-round, he was raised in a large devout Roman Catholic family, father worked for the local archdioces-Jack almost ended up in seminary-
glad that didn't work out-I think he followed his real calling and used his gifts
and I wouldn't get to listen to sweet words like: :angel:

"Well here we are,no one else
we walked to school all by ourselves
there's dirt on our uniforms
from chasing all the ants and worms
we clean up and now its time to learn...

Tonight I'll dream while I'm in bed
when silly thoughts go through my head
about the bugs and alphbet
and when I wake tommorow I'll bet
that you and I will walk together again
cause I can tell that we're going to be friends

Tragically, we lost Dennis Brown in 1999. The official cause of death was a collapsed lung. There were rumors that he had a cocain habit which contributed to his demise, but those closest to him adamantly denied this. Dennis Brown was a true Rastaman, and Rastas condemn drug use in the strongest possible terms. (Ganja is a natural herb, and therefore not seen as a drug at all by Rastafarians.)

Bob Marley said Dennis Brown was his favorite reggae singer, and he called him the "Crown Prince of Reggae."

Here is another Dennis Brown classic:
Emmanuel (God With Us)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAJP3pNfp9U


Dennis Brown!
Memory I-ternal!


         "When I write a song I try to follow Joseph's way - deliverance through vision from all - true vibration. I want to be a shepherd in my work, teaching and learning, really singing so much. I don't want to sing and not live it. I must live it. If I can sing songs that people can watch me living, then they can take my work."  
-Dennis Brown-

Or maybe its just random, you know. Do you think that things happen by 'chance'?


St Dorotheos says that If a person truly desires the will of God with all his heart, God will illuminate a small child to reveal His will to him.

But if a person does not truly desire the will of God, even if that person should go to a prophet, the Lord will reveal in the heart of the prophet an answer in accordance with the deception in his own heart.  This is from a verse form Ezekiel.

That is what St Dorotheos tells us in his chapter, 'That One Should Not Trust His Own Understanding'

Heavy Metal music glorifies the Devil.

Heavy Metal music glorifies the Devil.

I would agree that deathmetal might "glorify the Devil"... But I regularly listen to rock bands like AC/DC, Metallica, Alter Bridge, Tool, Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne just to name a few, and I can tell you that they don't "glorify" the devil... In fact, I've found many rock songs discuss our human condition more accurately than many non-rock songs that are secular.

I also play the electric guitar and can play many of the riffs from these songs, I really honestly do not see what is so demonic about it, other than someone fantasizing that the distortion "sounds demonic"...
Also, the music effects you just like all music does, I listen to some Pop songs and I want to dance, I listen to rock music and want to headbang, I listen to R&B and I want to dance... I listen to some rap/hip hop music and I want to vomit...
Rock music really isn't different than other types of music, you just need to be conscious of the lyrics and the band itself.

Oh man, rap music is sooo evil, now they glorify the devil.

I used to listen to rap music so much, I though it was so cool, I thought that the beats were cool and the rapping.
Its sooo evil because it glorifies drug use, Marijuana smoking, money, drinking, doing pills, selling and snorting Cocaine, Ecstacy pills, commiting adultery, murdering, selling drugs, being the most proud person EVER.

What would you do if I told you that I did most of these things? Its possible... Horribly possible.

Rap music is the most evil openly diabolical music ever created.

I used to this rap song called, ''I Love it'' and the rapper says in the song, ''And when I get to hell Lord know I'm gonna fry!''


Its so sad how the devil can deceive people so much.




Rock music is just way too secular though.

It may express what modern man may be going through in their lives.

But a Orthodox Christian, who partakes of the sacramental life should never need to listen to them.

Just ask yourself, ''Would Christ listen to such music?''

The only thing that rock music has ever done for me is lust after worldly things, despise the Government (I listened to anti-flag) and become really, really, depressed (like suicidal depressed)


Listening to rock music is like drinking salty ocean water to quench your thirst.

Only God can quench the thirst of man.

DTTW,

Sometimes you see what you want to see. 'Nuff said.

EDIT: Also, if you feel "depressed" from the music, maybe you cannot relate or are trying to hard? IMO depressive music actually makes me feel better because I know i'm not alone - that the moods are also shared by a human being. I walk away happier having let it all out in some way. I think that's the difference between the "wannabe" and the sincere.

I don't think that the Old Testament KJV is very accurate though.

Here is where a much more accurate Old Testament text is: The LXX (70 Apostles)

http://www.ecmarsh.com/lxx/ (http://www.ecmarsh.com/lxx/)


But the New Testament KJV was translated out of the Greek LXX text.

Thats good to know.

I disagree...I think the KJV is very accurate...maybe not dead center, but close enough that in it I (and many others) have found and continue to see the Orthodox Church within its pages.  It is easy to get caught in tenses and senses creating unnecessary agitation within our minds over matters which are far above most of our reasoning skills.. 

In my opinion, it is more critical that we be attending and assimilating the services of the Orthodox Church wherein we receive the correct meaning in her poetic prophetic utterances then be concerned with the school of scribes.  NO TRANSLATION can be authoritative simply because it has been decreed such...certainly a Bishop or synod might instruct which translation to use in services and which to read for own edification...but TIME is the Incubator for these kind of matters and the Consent of the Church in her Churches is the catalyst for this authority.

St Ignatius Brianchaninov - On The Prayer of Jesus: Chapter 4, Power to expel Demons


http://www.philokalia.org/on_the_prayer_of_jesus.htm (http://www.philokalia.org/on_the_prayer_of_jesus.htm)


He's absolutely right. Best believe.

I know for a fact that the demons inhabit our bodies, they have inhabited my own vessel.

Its not unreasonable to say that they are in some of you too.

I have the most powerful ones though.

The passions are demons, St Ignatius says.

They flee at the invocation of the name of Jesus.

It burns them, it burns them good, if you practice the prayer good.

Power chords are wonderful, and you can actually do a lot with them... sliding the bass not up a fret (a string) can give you a bit of a depressive feel, while sliding down the higher note (the D string) can give a sense of motion.

Great article, but I have only one gripe.  The genius of "Smoke on the Water" isn't the riff itself, but how it's played.  Blackmore uses the 4th instead the 5th in what is a fairly basic blues interval (I-IV-V); the jazz number he supposedly stole it from is using 7ths.  He also doesn't play it with a pick but with his fingers, a choice which really dirties up that sound and makes it memorable.

They also kind of hint that Jon Lord had something to do with it, when, by all accounts, it was just something Blackmore was fiddling around with at the end of their recording @ Montreaux.  They needed another song and BAM! there it was. 

Anyone who is into music (or more concrete art, for that matter) knows that Picasso's dictum of "Good artists borrow, great artists steal!" has always been in full effect.  :)

I believe any guitar teacher who has a student obviously wanting to play rock songs and does not teach the power chord as the first lesson is horribly negligent and responsible with said student getting fed up with lessons after a few months.  Knowing all those open chords is well and good, but the power chord frees creative students to start writing songs now.  

To this day I can't believe how many instructional books I had to read to find that one little magic positioning which allowed me to put music to all those lyrics I had written down.


They're not the only ones my friend...

My High School Music Director never had any respect for Rock n' Roll because he said that all you needed to know were 4 chords. He wasn't kidding.

You ask me, 4 chords is one chord too many :P

But, on that note- I-V-VI-IV is every pop song from the 90s.  There's something wrong with a progression that managed to find it's way through Green Day, Bush, AND Matchbox 20

True, and that reality is proof positive of the fallacies of any argument defending 'intellectual property'.  The chance to take something and improve upon it is taken away, though admittedly, things like a whole slew of cheap pop-music rip-offs or a painfully awful metalcore cover hack job (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giBdzX77gYg) of a classic metal song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64coD-rx9sk) bring with them the temptation to crack down on some things very hard.  Instead of unjust I.P. laws to deal with the latter case, I suggest we revive blasphemy laws.

Well, with three kids there sure isn't any total silence around here whether we have electricity or not.   ;)  And while we've used the bbq grill to cook and heat small quantities of water when there hasn't been power, it's still very nice to have the hot water heater and a working stove particularly when one of the offspring is a teenage boy. 

Some friends of ours nearby have a well so when they don't have power they also don't have water.  *that* is a serious loss that's on beyond inconvenient.

My favorite, Holland, 1945. Music simply with the lyrics (Other links on youtube give more explicit (in both senses) of the theme of this song. Some of them rather graphic images of the horros of the Shoah):

Pentagle? Yipes. If you like folk from that period, perhaps you might like one of the more talented "folk" performers from today. Although I wince a bit when I use "folk" to describe her music, her talents both instrumental and lyrical seem to be far too complicated to fit into the genre.

Since many of her songs are longer than 10 minutes, they can't be captured in a single youtube clip. (Her less trained voice takes a bit of time to get used to, but really she writes some of the best lyrics of "pop" music nowadays.)

"Heaven Knows" by Rick Price

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kl70X6BAp_k&p=1A942512CF6909FA&index=4&playnext=4

She's always on my mind
From the time I wake up 'til I close my eyes
She's everywhere I go
She's all I know

And though she's so far away
It just keeps gettin' stronger everyday
And even now she's gone
I'm still holding on
So tell me where do I start
'Cause it's breaking my heart
Don't wanna let her go

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray
'Cause heaven knows

My friends keep tellin' me
That if you really love her
You've gotta set her free
And if she returns in kind
I'll know she's mine
So tell me where do I start
'Cause it's breakin' my heart
Don't wanna let her go

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray
'Cause heaven knows

Why I live in despair
'Cause wide awake or dreaming
I know she's never there
And all this time I act so brave
I'm shaking inside
Why does it hurt me so

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray
'Cause heaven knows
Heaven knows
Heaven knows

That's kinda old. I've listened to that song many times.
Sadly, Sabaton is overly commercialised. In the original released video, at the time of "Spirit, soul and heart in accordance with the old traditions" there was a scene of a Catholic Mass being prayed but in later versions that scene was cut out. They cut that out and replaced it with a cheap american-style sex scene between a sanitariuszka(nurse) and wounded soldier.

Here's a traditional Damascene wedding from the Syrian drama series Ahlur-Raaya, set in the time of the Ottomans.  As worthy of parody as Syrian acting can sometimes be, particularly because of the Damascene drawl (especially in the case of the women), it is this authenticity in the recreation of the past through traditional scenes like this as well as through the use of the old Damascene dialect and speech that I think keeps Syrian dramas ahead of the rest in the industry.  

Of course the music here is religious music and Islamic.  The women's less melodious bit is, well, of a different vein, but a nice thrust of the palm in the face of modern sensibilities: "My dear is calling me, and he wants to eat eggplant."  ;D

the Ramones.  Constantly.

My band is doing a tribute concert at the end of October and I've been listening to the same 20 songs over and over and over and over and over again so we can get them right.

My wife, even though she probably likes the Ramones more than I do, can't wait for this to be over because I'm constantly mumbling, "1, 2, 3, 4!" under my breath as I go over the tunes in my head while putzing about the house.   ;D

My remark about the corporate character of this music was not in reference to who wrote the songs. I'm sure the "artist" in question was born to a natural human mother, also, and not raised from a test tube in a record company's laboratory.

What is chiefly corporate about this music is not merely its endorsement and promotion by corporate entities but its production (including autotune, shameful for someone with any vocal talent), its aesthetic, its consumerism, its product placement, etc. Beneath the veneer of rebelliousness is a deep conformism, both in style and in content.

I won't dispute the question of talent. I think talent, in itself, is vastly overrated in our culture. Oftentimes the most loathsome garbage is defended on the grounds of "but they're so talented!"  Talent is nothing without inspiration, without beauty, without the artistic sensitivity that cannot be achieved by acquiring a set of technical skills. If all we want is "talent," I can think of many bands of many genres who have undoubtedly great proficiency with their instruments, and who make complex and difficult music, which is nevertheless profoundly uninspired and dull.

Lady makemewanna-Gag-a  ::)

The best way to make this contrived faux-avant-garde corporate bilge go away is to deprive it of the attention the record companies so desperately want for it.

What are you talking about? She's one of the few pop artists on the scene today who actually writes the majority of her own music.
Have you heard her "music"?

On a completely unrelated note, how did a band with lyrics as incoherent as Mastodon manage to get so many cool lines into their songs? Just from the song Blood and Thunder alone:

"This ivory leg is what propels me..."

"What remorseless emperor commands me? I no longer govern my soul..."

"Break your backs and crack your oars men, if you wish to prevail..."

It is a good lyric, especially for a metal band (one reason I prefer death metal and black metal is that you can't hear the terrible lyrics). Too bad the music is so dull.

Just bought the new album... didn't even know they were coming out with one this year. Ironic title for the first song (In Division), given that they split with the last original member of the band earlier this year. Hopefully this album will be a return to the form they had on Define the Great Line, when they had enough sense to include some slower and more atmospheric bits. So far, so good.

However, I decided to do a little digging regarding which bands are releasing albums next year, and quite a few bands that I like (Lazarus A.D., Opeth, Megadeth, Corrosion of Conformity, Manowar, Lamb of God, Tourniquet, and Believer) are supposedly releasing a new studio album in 2011.

What can I say? Classical music is my first love when it comes to music. I actually spent all evening working on a personal software engineering project while I listened to the music. Yeah, very geeky way to spend New Year's Eve, but I felt a bit of a cold coming on, so I didn't want to risk spreading it via a major social event.

Now it's time to put down a big Dead Guy Ale. There's one good thing about drinking at home: I don't have to think about driving home afterward. ;D

I can't say I like all their stuff, but they've got some great songs. 

I listened to some of the other songs on the VEVO channel, and remembered one of the reasons I didn't like them... the whiny singing of the guitar player (e.g. in Hypnotize (http://www.youtube.com/user/systemofadownVEVO#p/u/2/LoheCz4t2xc)). And I'm a guy that likes Dave Mustaine and Ozzy Osbourne, so when I don't like a singer with a nasally whiny style, that's saying something  :D Some of the other stuff though I admit that I enjoyed, especially the vocal bit of Chop Suey (http://www.youtube.com/user/systemofadownVEVO#p/u/7/CSvFpBOe8eY) that goes something along the lines of "Father into your hands I commend my spirit... etc.".

Gebre,

I don't think you need help with your guitar playing.  It sounds good to me!  :-)

As for the recording, I am sure others can give better, more technical advice, but, I would suggest simply investing in a good digital recorder.  I bought a Sony (I purchased it when I became the church secretary, and wanted to record the meetings so I would get the meeting minutes correct) and I have recorded a number of Divine Liturgies with the tiny recorder lying on the tetrapod behind the icon.  The playback quality is great!

In fact, at this moment (until I paused it to listen to you and your guitar) I was listening to the recording of the Vespers from the Sobor I attended in NJ a few months back.  It's like being in church.

It largely depends on the camera.  Some cameras have 1/8" input jacks for external mics, but many do not.  One thing you can experiment with is finding where the mic on the camera itself is.  You might be able to cut some of the volume distortion out by taping a small wad of cotton over the mic hole, being careful to not actually put tape over the mic hole itself.  

Alternatively, you can go to a place like RadioShack and get a $30 microphone (and the right kind of adapters so you can plug it into your camera, of course...they'll be able to help you there) and try that route.

BTW, you play very well. :)

شب خالد (Shabb Khaled)
Aicha - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIyyPsqRweE

The whole album, Sahra, is simply amazing. I made them play Aicha at my wedding, even though I know the lyrics don't relate at all.

I also discovered the Billboard Top 100 and I'm listening to the songs that played in the background throughout my awkward early teen years. Even though I don't like some of the music, it's bringing back some memories, so I'm enjoying the nostalgia.  :D (I know, it was only 11 or 12 years ago, but I have a pretty bad memory...)

Sirenia also came out with a new album, which I'll listen to next.. I liked most of The 13th Floor...we'll see. (They change singers constantly and I think that the CDs generally have some clunkers mixed in with a few very good songs.)


Amon Amarth just came out with a new CD last month, I think. Went to Best Buy after leaving church to pick it up...my husband is in 7th heaven right now (Sorry, AA fans, but my ears kind of hurt ;) ).

It's wonderful, although, like most of these newer Trojan Records comps, it's most of the same songs that show up on all these comps with a few rare or as-to-yet unreleased songs.  Since I love just about everything Duke Reid touched between 1965 and 1971, this is right up my alley.
