Under the Milky Way - The Church (1982)
Quite a song and a band for that matter..
We are sitting having a few drinks and votin for best covers of classics .. so far the one leadin is this one
French sassy warmish version of old XTC classic.. those French chicks have it.
I have been listening to a variety of works by Carl Nielsen.
Hall & Oates - I can't go for that (no can do)
Simply Red - Sunrise
tough choice for the clip: 80's moustache or 2000's bikini ?...
▶ Bruno Mars - Treasure
and did you like Sharapova unplugged: raging decibels live from the other side of the earth ?
then, the next to listen is: ▶ Starting All Over Again - Hall & Oates
Scarlatti sonate K101
Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygéne part I.
I think I'm going to go through all of that album today as it's one of my favourite albums. Audio porn of the highest order.
Alter Bridge : Wonderful Life (live from Wembly)
did you try the version with the additionnal tracks ?
(prelude + variations I, II, III)
i was listening to it while reading Into thin air from Jon Krakauer: perfect match to add to the impression of being transported in the rarified atmosphere of himalayan heights...
Refined, highbrow tastes :-]
Rock, for "balance" ---> audio porn of the lowest order:
The intro to the below illustrates that quite often in music "less is more" (often lost on bombastic bands who 'Bridge' grunge-lite and metal wannabeism).
Edvard Hagerup GREIG - Solveig's Song:
(to bounce back on your last link)
Depeche Mode (my favorite is Halo).
Broken Children - Peter Cincotti
Glory Weed - 50 foot wave
sounds of cooking??
Peg from Steely Dan.
The Chromatics on you tube, heard a cover they do of New Order today on local radio and Im smitten
arcade fire - wake up
A bunch of theme songs. Currently, Love Story playing. It's a beautiful tune, even if your aren't the romantic type.
I'm listening to Nils Frahm right now. Good early morning Sunday music!
SklarBroCountry...SKlar brothers comedy popcast...perfect background for nerding out on tennis message boards.
M.I.A Bad girls
Just enjoying my new speakers. .
Your song Ellie Goulding!
The absolutely iconic Sweet Jane by Lou Reed.
It is live from circa 1973ish. I prefer this version because a. it has a excellent intro and b. it is probably the most powerful/raw version I've heard.
I'm including a strong version by Ian McCulloch (a little smoother, strong vocals)
And Metallica with guest Lou Red (powerful, flashier guitars, but not as raw)
Parov Stelar's Booty Swing.
Johannes Brahms - String sextet no.1, op.18
Early Baroque is where it's at, my friend.
Not all Romantic composers suck. ^-^
True. Not all.
But it's not their composing that sucks; it's the style.
Well I fancy baroque, classical as well as romantic, and also later and earlier stuff. In each period/ style there are favourits, but i have to say in romantic music there are more pieces that I really can't stand (e.g. most of Mahler), while in earlier music there aren't that many absolute turn off pieces/ composers. Baroque always seems to sound at least decent.
I stumbled upon this one: "Swallowed Jonah"
Santa Esmeralda - The house of the rising sun [Quasimodo suite]
... also enjoying the original version by the Animals, of course:
Kids screaming at me...
So over working in a middle school day after vacation, kids are absolutely insane..
Kitchens of Distinction: Capsule
Throwing Muses - Purgatory/Paradise.
Video for a track of the new album: Sunray Venus

Vin Diesel should do a (newer) remake of this,
Hans Zimmer - Dream is collapsing, Inception soundtrack [Junkie XL Remix]
wonderful, haunting music.
jean-michel's dad wasn't bad either...
the soundtrack of Lawrence of Arabia is great too...
and here's an 'ambiant' remix of this theme:
