Now, Coldplay is another band whose music I don't like (too soft and perhaps too … melodic(?)). But that's a personal thing. I don't doubt the qualtiy of their music.

While I have you here, here's another example. I do listen to classical music, but I prefer music from the late 19th and the 20th/21st century. Mozart is boring (but obviously very talented). Beethoven? I like some of his stuff. But give me Stravinsky, Orff, Janacek, Bartok and Holst and I'm in that part of musical heaven.

Here's "180 Beats per Minute" by Jorg Widmann (music starts at 5:20)

Especially for the carnifex: Music to scare your neighbours by:

And of course:

If you choose the UmmaGumma version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Q6qdR0Fvg), you might want to select 03:00 to 03:30, on repeat.

pibbur who ATM hasn't decided who he wants to scare, but who did play a King Crimson tune from that album once for his nursing school students.

PS. For King Crimson the 21st century tune (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MM_G0IRLEx4) may be an alternative (or an addition). DS.

PPS. A runner up, in a sightly different genre, but apparently very powerful: Gloomy Sunday (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55FP1LfkkVQ). On Youtube there's also a 1 hour long piano version. (I consider the stories around the song urban legends) DS

King Crimson is certainly in my top ten bands of all time, and thanks Pibbur, now I know what I'll be listening to at lunch!

Not bad, Ripper, not bad at all.

Another few swings for Sammy-

Ashcroft is reportedly a raging jackwagon, but he makes some good music-

The Best of Megadeath went with me out to the porch today, to enjoy a fine Sunday afternoon. I'd say this album needs at least another hour of music, yet as it is, it's still pretty damn good.

This morning I took some Zappa and the Mothers of Invention out to the porch. It's probably a good thing no neighbors were in sight!

Again, some angst for the late eighties and nineties struck me today, so I took some Ed's Redeeming Qualities out to the porch this afternoon. Ed's Kitchen, Ed's Day, and More Bad Days are all fine albums!

And if you've not heard of this band, and like folksy-type music, feel free to give them a whirl. What they most remind me of is a group of friends sitting around a house having a great time, just working their music.

I'll be indulging in all things Rolling Stones for the rest of the month. I don't have all their albums, yet I've enough to keep me and the neighbors amused!

I've succumbed to the Beatles Mania. Bought myself "Anthology i" last Thursday.
The more I listen to them - later years prferred, of course - the more I like them.

You should listen to the live version of the "Left Right" live album. The whole version is like the end of that video. It's one of the very very very very few songs / versions ever that always drives me to tears, but it's a very personal story for me, too.

That might be the most interesting country song I've ever heard. Not bad.

Yeah, I like the old-school guitar work - kind of reminds me of the Allman Brothers.

This really got me thinking about starting a new Day's Gone playthrough. But I'll temper that, and probably just let it stew some more. A few more years should be good.
