Great one too. Their singer and their former drummer both had a great band called Sleep, you should check it out if you haven't yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIw7oeZKpZc

I know of Sleep, great band. I'm into stoner/doom music btw.

I swear there was a time I could play at least a part of this song in the mandolin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P467rwGEl7o

Learning a particular version of this song I can't find right now will be the first thing I'll do when I get my guitar back, God willing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jRnL6fRdcc

Another awesome song I'll probably never play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFUVNAF8DWc

I've discovered a new "genre" of music: Yacht Rock

WXPN dedicated a day to it just recently, which was the first time I heard the term. I had to use Google to figure it out. Then I realized that probably my favorite Sirius/XM radio station is (now was) secretly a Yacht Rock station - or maybe they just realized it, I don't know. And now it's disappeared. Used to be called "Limited Edition". It's disappeared.

Some Steely Dan to celebrate, either way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdmhW0MwXy8 ("Don't Take Me Alive")

My old band used to cover that one.  Never a big Steely Dan fan, but I always liked that song and playing it never got old.

I'm a huge Steely Dan fan, and this is one of my favorites. Incredible musicians that had an uncanny ability to infuse so much complexity into simple, catchy melodies. Plus their music is very nostalgic for me. I heard them on the radio all the time growing up in the 70's and 80's.  :)

Mendelssohn's Ave Maria (op. 23).  This is definitely not a standard piece in a chorus' repertoire, but it is exquisite.

The Gardiner series is, IMHO, the best one. Yes, they cost a lot, but it's worth it. Gardiner really did his homework and frankly, almost everything he touches is gold.  For second place, I say the Box set done by Ton Koopman.

I'm not buying, just renting through the library, but since the sets are so massive, they require a sort of subscription. I generally like Gardiner (his 9-disc Sacred Vocal Works set is excellent), but I'm not very fond of live recordings, and Koopman's tempi just grated. In the end I opted for the Masaaki Suzuki and the Fritz Werner sets, for contemporary and historical recordings respectively. Neither is a complete edition, but they pack serious attitude.

I just want to mention the first attempt at recording all of the Bach Cantatas by Karl Ristenpart (and financed by "Radio in the American Sector"). The 1949-1952 recordings are available on Amazon as a 9 CD set ($45) or MP3's ($18; probably good enough given the quality of these historical recordings): https://www.amazon.com/Rias-Bach-Cantatas-Project-J-S/dp/B0072ZYCX2

LOL just read that Donatan was behind probably the all time most sexist Eurovision performance. Did remember the video but not the name of the artist. I didn't know that he was a real artist.

Isn't Baroque played in the first half of the twentieth century, like this, performed on Classical instruments and in a Classical or even Romantic style? A style to which it is not at all suited and which probably explains Baroque's unpopularity at that time. So I would recommend a set performed post-1960s if possible.

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

No. Much of Baroque music's popularity in the 1960s is due, in part, to Karl Ristenpart with his Nonsuch and Musical Heritage Society recordings. I have heard better renditions of baroque and medieval music from a Kazoo quartet compared to some "original instrumentation" interpretations.

Since I use Ambleside for our homeschooling curricula, and they have assigned composers, we are listening to:

Dittersdorf: Sinfonias on Ovid's Metamorphoses Nos. 1-3 and Double Bass Concertos, String Quartets Nos. 1-6
Hildegard von Bingen: A Feather on the Breath of God
Capella Romana: Lay Aside all Earthly Cares, Fall of Constantinople
A Dance in the Garden of Mirth: Medieval Instrumental Music - The Dufay Collective
Chant: The Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos

The most incredible "mashup" youtube stream ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBtI_sUuL58

Featuring:
a)Jefferson Airplane v. Fatboy Slim (Somebody to Praise)
b)Michael Jackson v. The Doors (Billie Jean on the Storm)
c)Daft Funk v. Queen (Another One Bites Da Funk)

It's as far as I've gotten, I'm afraid to spoil it. Enjoy! ;)

Steely Dan FTW!

+1,000

I'm a huge Steely Dan fan, and this is one of my favorites. Incredible musicians that had an uncanny ability to infuse so much complexity into simple, catchy melodies. Plus their music is very nostalgic for me. I heard them on the radio all the time growing up in the 70's and 80's.  :)

Did you notice the Pina Colada song is inconspiculously absent? I can't find it on youtube.

Highlights from the V Festival. Currently David Guetta is rocking out, together with Zara Larsson, who was on by herself earlier.

I think you might be referring to this one:

Bad Sneakers

Bad sneakers and a Pina Colada my friend
Stompin' on the avenue
By Radio City with a
Transistor and a large sum of money to spend...

No, I think the song I was thinking of isn't even by Steely Dan (although I'd thought so all of my life.)

It's the one that goes "If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain..."
