No, dangerous when feeling very sad is listening to Joy Division.  THAT'S dangerous! Cry

Ah, yes, excellent album. I have a couple others of his, too.

On the way to work this morning, I was listening to Songs to Learn and Sing by Echo and the Bunnymen.

Here's my favourite song of his:

For those who may be in Sydney on 28th April (Bright Monday), I will be going to hear Lior at The Basement.

I'm currently using Pandora 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.

At the moment, Sham 69's "Borstal Breakout" is on.

I'm currently using Pandora to create the soundtrack of my workday. 
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.

Sincerely,



Tim Westergren
Founder

You might try Accuradio. I've never tried it from outside the U.S., but it's pretty similar to Pandora.

^ Ingenious. I remember I used one of those when I was in college in order to bypass the school's NetNanny (yeah, they really had that for adults). They blocked just about everything on the Internet, including shopping sites like Amazon. The school really had a megalomaniacal IT director.

They didn't want employees shopping on the clock, and they didn't want students shopping during class.

Guess it never occurred to them that a few thousand people lived at the school.

I just discovered Pandora, myself, thanks to one of my friends (who posts here occasionally)....But it keeps dragging down my computer.   Angry  I have to wait until my brother-in-law works on the computer this weekend.  Hopefully everything will run much faster and I'll be able to listen to Pandora again.

No kidding!  Esp Love Will Tear Us Apart.  I like the song, but I rarely listen to it even when I'm in a great mood.  But These Days is a bit more up-tempo.

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.

Yay, bluegrass!  I never thought I would say that but age does weird things to a person.  I'm currently listening to tornado warnings and Death Cab for Cutie Transatlanticism.

^Hey, if you want good bluegrass mixed with some classic Rock, I highly recommend Alison Kraus and Robert Plant's collaboration for Raising Sand. I didn't think it would be any good, but I was so happy to be proven wrong.  Totally awesome!

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 did catch a song by them but I didn't realize they'd made a whole album.  Awesome!  I was pretty impressed.

He probably already has that album; it all does seem to run together to me. But I know that Alison Kraus and Jerry Douglas are his two favorite musicians. I am getting to where I recognise some of the tunes, and even some of the artists! laugh It does grow on you.

This second I'm listening to Ancient Faith Music.

BUT...

When it comes to general music my main choices are:

Doo Wop,
Barbershop (quartet and choruses,)
Pre 1940 music and
old women blues singers (such as Bessie Smith and Ethel Waters.)

I was just "born too late!"  Grin

Howdy!

I've been attempting (without success) to try to get my choir director to get some arrangements of the Orthodox hymns in barbershop harmony.

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!)
