way off topic ....I think I'm starting to mellow a little.
With all the hustle and bustle around me at the moment ...Im needed here and every bloody where ,and looking for work etc etc.
I find a great place to escape to is music .... my tastes are eclectic for sure , but the classics ... thats where a feel good.

The work those guys put in is amazing .... writing and arranging for an entire orchestra , nothing short of genius.
My go to tunes at the moment are Beethoven-Fur Elise , and Tchaikovsky's waltz of the flowers.

Marty, try some Sibelius. Our ABC Classic-FM has gone all trendy-imitation-pop-radio, and I am about to sack them. Beethoven, Wagner, Mahler - all glorious stuff.

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

With my large collection of Electric Pianos, Keyboards, Programmable Synthesizers, etc....

...and with my fabulous 2-manual, drawbar, Hammond Organ and Leslie 760 rotary speaker cabinet....

....my favourite is Baroque...with Herr Johann Sebastion Bach, Pachelbel, Albinoni, et al...>>>

Wonderful stuff to watch and listen to on Youtube!

Marty...how about getting yourself a little keyboard and immersing yourself in your own musical endeavors?

There's nothing quite as relaxing as tinkering on the Ivories...in a World of your own!!

Paul....You hum it....I'll play it!.... :D ...!

Nothing like a little Baroque over a glass of fine Port...
But in the sweatshop, something a little lighter, and it's free!

Sorry guys, I can't get into the 'classic' music. I appreciate the skill and talent that it takes to compose and play said music but I just don't get the appeal... So I'm going to be a heretic and leave some music that I use to get me through the day.... :ph43r:

I don't see any heresy, Nick, there's room for all sorts of Good Music...
There's a lot of it too!
When I am woodworking my boombox plays Internet radio stations, the problem is what to pick, there is so much Good Stuff.

And when you feel like a Serious Listen, nothing beats carefully placing a new 190g vinyl on the platter and hearing that glorious analogue noise for all of 20 minutes :P

Can't imagine what life would be without Music...

Internet radio really is the go isn't it? I use Rooster Radio. It's very heavy blues but I've been turned onto so many good tunes that I wouldn't probably have found otherwise. As for vinyl... couldn't agree more. When I had a turntable, it was hard to beat a nice scotch and my well used copy of the Guess Who's 'Rockin' Or Led Zeppelin IV (of course)

"I don't see any heresy, Nick, there's room for all sorts of Good Music..." Thats true Charl , and that stuff you posted Nick is great :thumbup:

I break away regularly ...may be the only 60 year old whos in to five finger death punch , when the mood takes me :)

Charl "Can't imagine what life would be without Music.." neither can I .I think I would rather not see than not hear .

The Blues is second, in my music hate list, to the devils music that is Rap.
If you don't have the blues before listening to it you sure will after :)
But each to their own.

A lot of people are afraid of the blues. Early blues certainly is very harsh in the subject matter and also the way the guitar or harp is played. People like Robert Johnson and to a lesser extent Son House were virtuoso guitarists but they require the listener to engage with the music. Just because blues is about heartbreak and hurt doesn't mean that the listener has to be the same way.

You are correct that Hip hop would be number 2. Ghastly.
Some music we will look back to with the same embarrassment as we do to flared trousers, platform shoes, Mullet hair cuts and low riding
The primary reason we listen to music is that it "stirs" the emotions and hence our mood.
For me Blues Jazz mostly stirs up negative vibes and conventional Jazz I find comprises of several musicians playing different pieces of music together and at the same time. :huh:

Charl .... just came inside after a beautiful light dinner on the deck , a nice chilled Vidal (Hawkes bay) chardonnay , and Johann Pachelbel's canon in D major (strings)
Life is a tad hard at the moment , but music like that just takes the edge off.

It's funny how music acts as a window onto the past, when my brother and I were mid teens, we were into very different music -- I was rock 'n roll, and he was more 'sensitive', I can remember him blaring out 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull' much to my disgust.

Today Spotify recommended the Neil Diamond 'Hot August Night' anniversary release, and I'm hooked now. In the early days before the 'cabaret' years he really knew how to put an album together. I may even try that damn seagull...

I've said before that I'm a big fan of NZ music, I now have another favourite on the list after listening to Doug's country radio link -- Camille and Stuie -- search Youtube if you are not afraid of country music and the local kiwi accent:)

Today's playlist is all Brooke Fraser, not something I'd not normally choose but I was very intrigued by this Grammy winning song this year -- perfect for a Sunday morning...

I have been accused of 'shoving religion down people's throats' before (when I planted the Godzone sign on the hill about Wanaka), but this is far from the case -- I am not a tiny bit religious, but I have nothing against those who are. Brooke certainly falls into that category -- seeing her alight onstage is an inspiration!
