Default The ever-popular "Currently Listening" thread

October 18th, 2006, 19:10
Seems only natural to carry over Xen and Sammy's threads.

Post yer tunes, folks. Links to sound clips are strongly encouraged. If it's worth posting, it's worth sharing.

Today's tune for me:
"Melinda" from Tearwave

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I've got my iPod on my latest buy:
'Kali's Son' by Jonas Hellborg … wild bass innovator - I miss Shawn Lane, but the wild east/west jazz fusion on this is pretty nice.

Well, I never really liked Haydn, or the rest of the Vienna classical composers… I'm more into early Baroque, Romantics or the so-called Contemporary Classics. Yet I spent a little more time with the Vienna folks recently, and I actually came to like them.
Yes, Haydn is THAT weird.

Right now I'm listening to Roger Cicero…

You know what they say, if it ain't baroque …

'Contemporary Classics' - what is that? Are we talking 12-tone stuff, minimalism, or ? That is the stuff I like in classical - Beethoven is the *earliest* of the composers I love

Now listening to the Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines Sountrack.

OK, my post wasnt wholly accurate - I was more dating my general taste as being from Romantic period and forward. I love stuff from Vivaldi, Back, Mozart, and so on …

Phew!

Would have to say Romantic is my favorite period as well.

Mozart? Meh… evolutionarily important, but mostly bores me… Requiem is good…

Sometimes i listen to Bach. I like Bach's haunting organ works.

Well, I meant 20th+ Century composers, like my favorite Brits (Vaughn Williams, Elgar, Holst, Britten), the 12-toners like Sch&#246;nberg and Schreker (in sense), Shostakovitch and others.

It's a matter of definition. I (for example) love Bach, but he is a Baroque composer and thus not a 'true' Classical composer of the Vienna period (which was truly short, as Beethoven - the last in line - was more of predecessor of the Romantics than anything else).

Currently listening to web radio… 'Gimme gimme gimme' by Abba (feel comforted, Corwin, I love Abba).

Wow, thanks for that link, mate! I really loved the game and the music, and it seems now I can finally get it on my PC! I hope you are seeding it, too, BTW

Otherwise, I listen to gothic metal/dark rock, starting with the founders and the kings of the genre, Paradise Lost. The site I've linked to contains a few songs for your listening pleasure.

Working too much could interfere with your drinking.

I used classical with a little "c" to refer to the genre, which encompasses the periods of Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary.

Yeah, now that you said it I saw and understood. Sorry about the confusion!

I'm currently listening to Samael: Jupiteran Vibes.

@JonNik: Missionforce: Cyberstorm had wonderful music, too.

I've had the ABBA collection (4 CD's) in my car for several years

Outside of ABBA, I listen to the music from highschool: Journey, Kansas, Chicago,
REO Speedwagon, STYX, Rush, etc. I also like Michael Jackson's stuff before he became a weirdo.

Arcturus - Maquerade Infernale

You know, this cd just gets raves from practically everyone Ive seen mention it, I just dont get it. Ive had it for weeks, and every time I put it on it's an effort to finish it. This and "Mandylion" by The Gathering, both highly praised cds in the metal community that I just cannot for some reason like. At all.

Total waste of money
