Ah, y'all, y'all, y'all!  I gotta clear this up...it's From the Cradle, and it's one of my favorite albums, ever.  "Blues Before Sunrise" was the first track.

Funny...I own the Cd and still missed the title. Still amazing for a blue-eyed player.

Now, as for what I'm currently listening to...I'm going back and forth between Ancient Faith Radio podcasts and streaming audio, and Southern Rock (Skynyrd, Allman bros, CCR, Marshall Tucker).

The post Skynyrd band Rossington-Collins had a couple of really good albums.

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.

I believe next in line will be the classic streetpunk album "Shock Troops" by Cock Sparrer.

Punk that early in the morning would be dangerous to my health.  Does it wake you up?

Just a question for anyone out there.  The Raveonettes album Pretty in Black.  Worth buying?  I've heard a couple of songs played to death and clips off their web page but not enough to make up my mind.

Not as much as, say, the Bad Brains would do on the train ride in....that really gets me going.

By the time I'm at work, I'm already wide awake. :)

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).

Just in the last few months I've been captive of a swell tune sung by Jo Stafford called "I'll Be Seeing You". The melody is beautiful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8R4hZk-1fpo
And have been listening to some Robert Fripp soundscapes too.

Right now, I'm listening to Ancient Faith Radio. That's what I do when I'm on the forum boards...Otherwise, alot. Recently, The Cure's "Love Song" and Incubus' "Dig." They're both older songs now, but they remind that I miss someone and will see them again soon... :'(

Very! How 'bout their "Love Will Tear Us Apart"? Now that's depressing! I can only listen to them every once in awhile, but I do like them.  Y'all should listen to "These Days"; it's a little more upbeat.

Yeah, it's because it's soft and has a rhythmic beat. It's quite soothing, actually. The Cure, too, for similar reasons.

"Inflammable Material" by Stiff Little Fingers.  I just can't get enough of this album.

Speaking of Joy Division, the new Ian Curtis biopic Control looks phenomenal, and I'm not even that big of a JD fan.  I can't wait to see this!

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

Ebor - was your baby riding in the car and falling asleep or did you put him in the car with the purpose of getting him to fall asleep?  Everyone raise your hand who has driven around for an hour trying to get the baby to go to sleep when all else fails?

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. Cue the loud music.  It wasn't just Beethoven, though he seemed to work the best.  :D

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.

Our oldest, now 14.5, who has just wandered by and read your post, TinaG, just quoted The Incredibles "Leading experts say that Beethoven makes babies smarter".   :D

He has a growing sense of humour.
