What are you listening to these days? - Page 4

post #91 of 546

A little bit of everything lately. I have eclectic taste overall, but recently it's been a lot of dance/club hits- The Freemasons, Ben Hill, Madonna, Kaskade, Gaelle Addison, Samantha James. I'm probably going to be slipping into a nice Brazilian Lounge for the end of the summer into the fall- as I feel as if things are finally starting to mellow out from a hectic summer.

I went to see the Michael Buble concert in Ottawa last weekend. His latest CD "Crazy Love" is full of wonderful songs . He opened his concert with this song "Cry me a River" and .......well if your into big band, this was quite the show. I kindly asked him to stop singing directly to me but.....you know how it is ? (cough cough)

Another nice song : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JK2LinUnhGk

 

and:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhqhU_G1-u4 ( Stardust-most beautiful lyrics- Nat King Cole does it great too) ......what a concert.

Hello There................forgive me for the delay.......I have had not been able to write as much but when I do have a chance I try to read your posts which keep me  very much informed about so many things. Ten Years Nicko.....wonderful. For all for you that have asked about me.....still very much alive and working hard.

 

I have been traveling, to much to go into detail about. Saw the most beautiful concert abroad and I just had to share this artist with you. Not just this song but all of her songs. If you enjoy jazz...........this is just awesome. Her Album, " My one and only thrill", just soothes the soul .

A few tunes that I've been infatuated with lately are:

 

Quiet Dawn, Nostalgia 77

Optical Illusions, William Orbit (Billy Buttons Mix)

Stay the Same, Bonobo (feat. Andreya Triana)

 

I've mostly been listening while doing random chores at home to relax after work, so those three are pretty chill songs, but still lively IMO.

Okay, so for the past month or so I've been on this Dr. Horrible kick.  Been listening to the soundtrack from Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog quite a bit and singing it constantly at work.

Been listening to my parents, as always crazy.gif

 

But on more a serious note, anything by James Brown or Barry White are touching a chord with me.  INXS and U2 as well.

 

  Oh no, giving away my age here.......ha!  I've earned the years thumb.gif - and every grey hair.

 

P.S. Hey petals, welcome back - it's great to hear from you in here! Long time no see, hope all is well.

Recently I have discovered Joe Bonamassa and have become somewhat obsessed. I have not been this enthralled with a guitar player since I discovered SRV back in 1984! The boy is pretty amazing and almost a boy next door kind of guy.

My latest musical venture!

National Public Radio's sunday show called "Wait,wait, don't tell me."   I just enjoy the humor.

Black Eyed used to be good back in the days. Remember the album Elephunk?

 

Me likes old school hip hop and reggae music. They are just so smooth and chill. Another one is some rock music (like RHCP), for some reason it brings summertime memories. But when eating it's better to be silent environment!

Journey, Chicago, Roy Orbison, Soundgarden

post #110 of 546

Roy Orbison.........Mom and I were listening to him tonight, she saw him live years ago. My favorite will always be "In Dreams".

 

Things have been so busy  but glad to see that I have one buddy that enjoys Melody Gardot as much as I do.

Joey,

 

U2 was suppose to play last year  here in Montreal but the show got cancelled because he hurt his back while on tour but we were able to get the tickets revalidated (right word ?) so the concert is back on this summer.

 

Governor's Harbour has not changed much. But I can tell you that 80% of the produce comes in from Miami.  There is a corner store  who charges $ 10.00 a pound for tomatoes. You can just imagine what he charges for the rest of his merchandise. What is worse , vacationers who come to rent homes for a month or so don't know the going rates or rather the availability of fresh produce on the Island . Having money or not, its good to know what your getting into when your feeding your family , guests, employees and the rest.

Before leaving for the island I always make sure that the caretaker of the property has kept the garden growing : ie tomatoes, lettuce, beans, .....certain vegetables are hard to grow there.  

The economy has been hit hard , many places are feeling the effects. ....oh  Emerald Bay ....

 

Stay well Joey !

 

Dan , Love the Pic.

We Bought the new dvd , Joe Bonamassa Live from the Royal Albert Hall. Some of the songs are just terrific, what a guitar player. I didn't know he opened up for B.B king at just 13 years of age.

 

Great spin on Blues. Great spin on Blues.

I love Scottish and Irish folk music.  We also visit Cornwall at least twice a year - one of my favourite folk bands is a group of men from Port Isaac, called Fisherman's Friend (that's a local joke as that is the same name as a UK throat lozenge, exceptionally strong in flavour!)  They specialise in sea shanties and other local folk songs, and also write their own, modern music.   Here's a link to one of their songs, recorded on the harbour at Port Isaac    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW5IdBWmWGc
