Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a wretched sinner.

Jacob wrestled with God all through the night.  At the break of day, he became Israel.

Just listening multiple times to the beautiful cover of Take on Me by Aha done in the video game The Last of Us 2
"And Moses said to the children of Israel, 'Because ye have wept and have asked for flesh, behold the Lord will give you flesh to eat; not one day, nor two, nor five, nor ten, but a month of days shall ye eat, until it goeth out of your nostrils, and becometh nauseous to you.'" (The Book of the Bee, 30)

The gym played Walking in Memphis, Gangster's Paradise, Never Ever (All Saints), and a Faith Hill song (I think).

Just listened to "The Balkan Trip", an album by a great guy called Arany Zoltán, who always does amazing interpretations of folk music from all across Europe. The song that raised my attention the most was a Bulgarian one called Jove Malaj Mome.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Mercyful Fate. I love that bass so much.

Edit: Only found out now that their bassist Timi died last year.  :'( Lord, have mercy. St. Varus, pray for us.

My insanely eclectic playlist. 
Do you have Spotify? I'd love to take a look. :D My playlists aren't individually very eclectic, but their titles range from "bluegrass/country" to "2nd wave black metal" to "rap/hip hop/trap".

Nice.  ;D  Bluegrass might be fun.  I'm still working on that level of eclectic; maybe I overstated, lol.  Back when I had CDs (and cassettes :-X), it was about like that, just no rap, and not much metal.

And no, it's Amazon Prime.  It's a smattering of singles from various decades... I guess mostly some form of pop or rock when you get down to it.  Still adding.

"2nd wave black metal"

Lol! Love how very specific. Hope you have lists for first and third wave too and different Darkthrone albums and songs spread between these.

Dude, it's exactly what you said, lol! But it's "post-2nd wave" rather than "3rd wave" since I find "3rd wave" too undefined.

I also have way too many folk playlists, by country/region (e.g. "Irish music", "Spanish American music"), and purity (e.g. "neofolk", "folk metal").

Still on the theme of eclecticism, today my uncle was very surprised that I was listening to jazzy samba-funk (Ed Motta - Fora da Lei) when he left the living room and as soon as he shortly after came back I was listening to French technical death metal (Gojira - The Art of Dying).

Teresa Salgueiro & Caetano Veloso - Mistério De Afrodite

Just in case you were wondering how different Lusitanian and Brazilian Portuguese sound. ;D

If you like this, you should check Madredeus. Very interesting Portuguese band that gives a modern vibe to fado. Also Dazkarieh, which might be described as "Madredeus meets Mumford & Sons".  :laugh:

BTW, I've seen people claim European Portuguese sounds like Russian, while Brazilian Portuguese sounds somewhere between Italian and French.  ???

I know Madredeus very well. ;) They were huge in Greece since the mid-90s; among the frontrunners of the world music explosion, in fact. I have most of their albums, but their recent works, without Salgueiro, fall rather short, although their replacement singer sounds very much like her.

If you like fado with a bit of a difference, I recommend Amélia Muge, who is from Mozambique and spins African elements into her compositions.
