Title: What are you listening to on your cd player/ mp san??
Post by: Bugalugs on May 17, 2007, 01:19:07 PM
I am listening to all sorts of stuff now that i can get Limewire to work at school. Went out with students to buy a mp san on Saturday and i have been kicking my self for not buying one ages ago. It's nice being able to block out China when ever i want.:)

Most of my stuff is fairly contempory, i like Green Day, Limp Bizcuit and stuff like that but also Elton John, the Beatles, Meatloaf....pretty much anything. From Beethoven to the Queens of the Stone Age it is on my player. Not sure what else to add though still have about 300mb left. 10.5 hrs of music so far.

Peculiar, I know, but I don't have an MP3, or whatever. The only time I listen to music is when I am cooking. I would hate to plug myself into a player when I am on a train/bus, whatever. I read and sleep!

What do you listen to while you are cooking....or is this just a nice way to say you never cook?????

I just bought some logitech mini speakers for my laptop that plug into a USB port.  I am listening to Sara Evans.  Great sound.  I don't have an MP3 player, when travelling I play cards, read a book or grab a few winks.

I never use my MP3 for music, just for lesson stuff.
I listen to my downloads on my puter, just downloaded a new album by Pink Martini, oldies, jazzy sounding stuff, very smooooooth.

Depends. I have a list of stuff on the computer, and I just start at a random selection.

Ah cool, another reason i like my mp san, i don't get stuck listening to the same style of music for a whole cd.:)

Good to hear that there are blokes(chooks) out there that can actually cook.

There's all kinds though Bugs. There is probably some jazz you would like. It's a little like saying I don't like Chinese food.

Bugs;

I'm not really a jazz person either...but I just listened to the album in full and it;'s got some Latin sounds, some French, some stuff that sounds like it came outta the 40s...all sung by this woman with one of those cigarette smokey voices, very good.  I'm now downloading an older release I liked the new one that much.

Been listening to a lot of Chinese rock lately. Came back from the last Midi Festival with butloads of CDS and DVDS. Suffocated,The Subs and Su Yang to name a few.The latter is a really good folk/rock singer from Ninxia backed by a rocking band. Subs are old school punk rock while Suffocated is a furious death metal band.

 Currently listening to CCR's classic "Willy and the Poor Boys" album.

Bugs,try listening to Diana Krall...pretty nice contemporary Jazz...great voice and not bad to look at either.

As far as what I'm listening to:

Right now, Tim McGraw, 'cause you can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the Country out of the boy!

Currently, I seem to be hooked on country. Found this radio station online, which broadcasts from Calgary. Shane Yellowbird's "Me and my old pick-up truck" is my favourite so far. Contains the best pick-up line ever, "Baby, are you from Tennessee, cause you're the only ten I see". So funny.

Tim McGraw's 'Do You Want Fries with That?' was quite a funny music vid...
I've always had a soft spot for Willie Nelson...worked as a country music radio broadcaster for five years but must admit the country music of late has been a bit too mainstream.  The Dixie Chicks have been one of the better things that has happened to country in this decade.

The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie, and always, always Gram Parsons.  Definite all-time favorite.
I have a lot of punk from my high school days, Misfits, Op Ivy, bad Brains, then more recently NOFX, Transplants, Rancid, AFI.  Fun stuff when you're feeling really energetic.

Incidentally, does anyone else use Last FM?  It's a 'scrobbler' which records what you listen to and shows you other users with similar tastes and makes recommendations.

Met her back in the day. Lush played in Toronto at a small venue called The Opera House. They were part of a six band show and they went on first. After they just hung at at the bar to listen to the other acts. Nobody knew who they were then. The whole band were good people. Friendly, chatty, nice bunch and yes she is fiiiiine.

I have been listening to a superb band called the Black Heart Procession, whose recent album, the Spell, is like a cross between Afghan Whigs, God Machine and Arcade Fire.  I can't recommend it highly enough.

The BoM singer is quite something, isn't she?  Incredible vocal range.  Her 'normal' band is a punkier outfit called Made Out of babies.  They are a bit like a female Jesus Lizard. I can upload theirs too if you like.  battle of mice is a supergroup containing members of several 'post-metal' bands...

There's a great French Canadian singer named Garou, beautiful, smoky bar kind of voice.  I listen to quite a bit of French stuff, Francis Cabrel, Patrick Bruel and even Edith Piaff. There's a Cajun singer named Zachary Richard who's pretty great, too.

War protest songs as a follow up from my war poetry Literature class last week.  I gave them Eric Bogle's "No Man's land" and they all loved it, and asked for the music.  So this week they are also getting "And the band Played Waltzing Matilda" "I was only 19", "Unknown Soldier" "Where have all the flowers gone".

And the fun part of the final lesson? Visual poetry.

When I am travelling around in China, I normally enjoy listening to "deep dance" nice mixes  bfbfbfbfbf

I recognized, if you listen to chinese music and look at the scenery outside the car, you get easily depressed. Sad chinese music and sad environment - well there is still space for changes in China.  agagagagag

I don't normally listen to music as I travel.  I find it isolating, distracting and further I am one of those horrid people who hum, sing snatches of songs (totally out of tune) and jiggle around in time if I am listening to music.  If others can't hear and share - then they are driven nuts. 

So in all I am happier to talk, read, play cards, look out of the window and muse on life as I travel.

Music is an 'at home' or in the clubs thing for me because I becomes totally caught up in it.

Just got this crazy CD with a gift certificate from work. It's Brian Eno & David Byrne's My life in the Bush of Ghosts. It was an experiment they released in 1981. I love both of the artists originally and was interested in how they wanted to create a CD that never included either of their distinct voices. Highly, highly recommend it. More info about the CD and it's influence can be found at http://bushofghosts.wmg.com/home.php. For those in Suzhou, I'd be happy to make you a copy.

"I'm going straight to hell, that's what my momma said, I'm going straight to hell"

For anybody who wants to hear this lyrical theme developed over a 30-year career, join me in my passion for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Pick of the album crop, I'd say: Henry's Dream, Let Love in, Murder Ballads and Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus. But it's all outstanding since Nick got the better of his heroin habit back in about 88. Prior to that, it's a little more hit and miss.

The only problem is that grungy goth-rock blues with shrieking bits about hell and murder etc. isn't to everybody's taste. Mrs Foscolo is very much not a fan.

A few years ago I had a nice littel laptop and was downloading music on a regular basis and taking it into classes on occaision. Worked in well until one day someone snuck into my ofice and stole the laptop. No more music in my classroom. Just recently I've purchased an impysan and have started to DL music and lyrics for school again.
1) I have a very eclectic taste in music, but gravitating towards the mainstream rock of the early 70s. I grew up with guitar heros.
2) I'm having a hard time getting stuff that I want. I have 'puter probs at home and haven't been able to get anything to work except Baidu, and that's pretty limited. So for me the Q isn't what do I have, but what don't I. And reading this thread, my list is getting longer every day! A few things that I'm specifically loing for ATM: Alan Price's music from the movie O Lucky Man, and Eric Idle's song from Life of Brian, Always Look On the Bright Side of Life. I've found a passable cover by Bruce Cockburn, but not a patch on the original.

"No Talking, Just Head" besides the fantastic title, this little gem of a record is truly wonderful..
recorded by the remaining members of "Talking Head" when David Byrne left. All the songs feature original band members and guest vocalists like Johnette Napolitano, Michael Hutchence, Debbie Harry..

strange and eclectic but sooo good.

And the danger is....

Quote
70pc of youngsters have hearing loss

June 10, 2008

MORE than 70 per cent of young adults suffer from the first sign of hearing loss, a new survey reveals.

Listening to music - played at dangerously loud levels - through headphones could be the cause.

The survey, commissioned by Australian Hearing, found adults aged between 18 and 24 reported suffering from tinnitus or ringing in the ear.

The finding has surprised experts including Professor Harvey Dillon, director of the National Acoustics Laboratory at Australian Hearing.

"That was a real surprise because that was actually more common than the older respondents," Prof Dillon said on Fairfax radio.

"Mostly for the younger people it didn't happen very often, and it didn't last for very long when it did happen. But it did happen.

"And we think that that's probably a warning sign for them."

The report found two thirds of people listened to music through headphones and of those, 60 per cent played music at dangerous loud levels.

Prof Dillon said it could take just weeks for hearing loss to begin.

"That's part of the problem. Although it's happening, definitely, it's happening gradually and slowly and people just don't notice it," he said.

Some 25 per cent of younger people thought that if they damaged their hearing it would get better, he said.

"Older Australians, I might add, were much wiser, almost none of them thought that."

The risk of damage occurred in two stages when people go to concerts or noisy venues. Both occurred inside the inner ear and while one was temporary the other was permanent, he said.

"We tend to notice the temporary loss of hearing and we notice it come back over the next day or two.

"What we don't notice is that at the same time, in the same place but through a different mechanism, there's also a permanent loss going on.

"A few hair cells dying here, a few hair cells dying there and they add up from time to time."

Prof Dillon says safe headphone audio levels were 85 decibels, averaged over an eight-hour day.

There steps people could take to minimise the risk of going deaf from loud music, Australian Hearing ambassador Dr John D'Arcy said.

"Set the volume of your MP3 player at a level that allows you to hear someone at arm's length without them having to shout," he said.

Workers exposed to loud machinery or industrial noise should also wear ear muffs or plugs to protect their hearing.

The survey also revealed many older Australians viewed hearing devices negatively, which could lead to widespread social disadvantage among the elderly.

More than 70 per cent older people surveyed were open to the idea of wearing a hearing device, but most associated them with the terms "old" and "deaf" while one in five believed they were "unsightly" and "ugly".

Human Services Minister Joe Ludwig said modern technology had helped to make devices look less unsightly.

"People might be surprised that many modern hearing devices look more like fashion accessories," he said.

"We know from previous surveys that hearing loss is associated with a loss of intimacy or interaction with family and friends.

"So, if you do start to experience problems, it is important that people go and get tested and find out about the latest high-tech hearing aids."

Dunno.  I have pondered this question about many a band.  I think Whisper in the Noise are a little more 'out there' than Radiohead, and thus a bit too esoteric to be really famous.  But yes I'm surprised that they aren't a little better known in 'indie circles' than they are, as they've already done about 5 albums and they're all pretty decent.

 I have been downloading at an insane pace since I picked up my new computer. The previous computer picked up a fatal virus from Limewire, which kind of soured me on downloads. But I am using U Torrent now and have burned more than a dozen CDS with no problem.

 My playlist includes Eric Clapton, The Kinks (their mid seventies rock opera period), Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Hoyt Axton (the most under appreciated performer in the history of country music), Howling Wolf, The Who, The Rolling Stones (Let it Bleed...one of the greatest rock albums of all time) and The Police (Synchronicity...still rocks after 25 years)

 Also bought an MP4 player. Three years ago I bought a 500 meg MP3 for 350 kuai. Now I can get a 1 gig MP4 for less than 300. How tquickly hings change.

- Metallica: Garage Days revisited vol. 2
- Rod Stewart: When we were the new boys

 Garage Days is great. Reload...not great but does have some good tracks. Has undeserved bad reputation IMO...just too long and loaded with songs that shouldn't have made the final cut.

  New York Dolls for me. Saw the remnants at the Beijing Pop Festival, and ever since then I've been dying to hear them again. Their 1973 self titled debut album is one of the great gems of the 70's.

Post by: Nolefan on July 04, 2008, 10:12:01 PM
problem with reload is that it was never supposed to be an album on its own.

The band was in the middle of recording a double album ( load + reload) when they were offered the headlining spot at lolapalooza under the condition that they release an album. so they rushed and got the finished tracks out under the name "load" and left the others in. If you actually sit down and listen to both, it's pretty darn good. There are plenty of relevant and catchy songs!

St. Anger was really different and needed a different approach. It did get a lot of mouthing but in the end, it's music.. the band tried something different that worked for some but not the majority.. at least they tried to experiment unlike other bands that become copycats of themselves.

I did the same thing this past weekend under the influence of Apple's itunes promo featuring their latest single. Can't say i'm impressed but nevertheless, I kept 3 of the songs in my library.
I tracked down Merle Hagard's 40 greatest hits over the weekend and I'm having a blast listening to it. Also, I got my dirty paws on Tenacious D's first album and it's the closest thing to therapy in a CD than i could get find... love love love love love it.

If you haven't heard Otis's cover of the Rolling Stones' Satisfaction, I strongly suggest you immediately leap to your nearest download site or CD shop and get it. Wow... It's definitely a staple on the Shamrock playlist... bfbfbfbfbf

Another one- the one on the iPod right now- is Mutiny, I Promise You  by The New Pornographers. I was attracted first by the title...but it's a great song.

What's the weight of the world worth to ya, kid
Go write down what you see
And see how far it can go
What's the weight of the world worth to your side
Here is where you got lost
And here is how you got by

And here's the mutiny I promised you
And here's the party it turned into
...

Also, think I've mentioned it before, but if you don't already have it, by all means acquire a copy of Everclear's Local God. Not the original intention, of course, but the best musical account of the expat life in China I've ever heard.

Quidam ludunt, quidam bibunt, quidam indiscrete uiuunt.
sed in ludo qui morantur,
ex hiis quidam denudantur; quidam ibi uestiuntur,
quidam saccis induuntur
ibi nullus timet mortem,
sed pro Bacho mittunt sortem.

Primo pro nummata uini,

I didn't say I understood it, just listening to it.

It's got it's own tune. It's also bloody old. Not sure how old, but some of Corvus Borax (I like the name) go way way back into the dim mists of history. Like their war bagpipes stuff. Some of their more recent stuff is new agy pseudo celtic folk pop, though. But it still sounds good. (Plus the traitors play techno in the off season, and it creeps in betimes.)

A lot of their stuff is in German, Croatian, Latin, Old French, Celtic of various kinds, etc etc. Not much in English methinks, or at least I didn't notice any.

Tonight, Olympic-less, I finally had time to go out and wander the streets. Buried in the playlist on my iPOD is Peter Gabriel's "We Do What We're Told (Milgram's 37)" but it popped up in shuffle mode tonight. Eureka!

The relevant lyrics at the end of the song per the Internets:

one doubt
one voice
one war
one truth
one dream

But I could've sworn Gabriel sang,

One doubt
One voice
One world
One truth
One dream

It's a semi-obscure song that Gabriel wrote in ?homage? to the original 37 nasty responders in Stanley Milgram's original experiments. It's Orwellian in sound and (lack of) fury.

The genesis of the song can be found in the middle of the article here:

Black Sabbath


I have some mash ups that a friend put together as a 'concept album.' Every track uses Black Sabbath and he mashes the songs up with seriously weird companion tracks. Not all of the mash ups work, but most of them do, with hilarious results. He used "War Pigs" a few times. One  mash up uses the slow, brooding opening and it's looped. He then took bunch of soundbites of Wilford Brimley and dropped them in! It starts off flat out funny, just recognizing Wilford Brimley's voice, but then it starts to get warped. It goes from the kind, grandfatherly Brimley to this diabolical Wilford Brimley, cussing up a storm and threatening to kill someone. It builds up to this Dennis Hopper, Blue Velvet-ish crescendo that made me laugh so hard I smile thinking about it. It is without a doubt the second greatest mash up, right behind the one some guy made that took wrestling announcer Jim Ross and recontextualzied it so he was rapping about his ass. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fgpa6hjlUbY

So i use iTunes as my music player app. I downloaded the new one, version 8. This Genius setting it has is well... genius. While i do make mixed play lists, I've always had a hard time just downloading one song. I listen to albums. What this means is i have gigs and gigs of music on my hard drive that i really haven't listened to. Now you can make smart play list to listen to them in a rotation but that is using the tags and on any rock album you might have fast and slow songs that work for the album but not for a mix. This Genius play list is taking your song information and others, correlating it then playing other songs from your library that match the song you picked. it's very, very good.

There is a kind of Skynet feeling about the whole thing though.

New Metallica album. The world just became a slightly better place.

really? I'm still trying to come to terms with it after 4 or 5 listens... I hate the drums and the vocals so far but I love the guitars and bass! I can't actually recall the last time I listened to an album where the drums and the bass were so out of sync.

 Only one listen for me, so maybe I'm a little over excited. A lot of really long songs, but very heavy. Not old school, but I don't think we'll ever see that Metallica again (except in concert of course). Building on the direction they started with St. Anger.

 Fair to say that with the exception of "That Was Just Your Life" and "Judas Kiss" not a lot of tracks stay with you after they end. I'll play it a lot over the next couple weeks and render a final verdict.

Both songs make me want to  aaaaaaaaaa (sorry, Bugs!!)

I spent a train trip today listening to 'Edge of Seventeen'. It was playing through the speakers of the smallest emo kid I have ever seen. He was tiny and probably about 13 but he had the whole eyeliner and hair-brushed-over-the-eyes-cos-I'm-so-emo look. He was nowhere near the edge of 17 and the look on his face made me struggle to stifle a laugh. He was concentrating so intensely with a look of absolute awe for Stevie Nicks. Funny, funny kid.

So, to comment on this thread, I had my ear-thingies in but no music on. I was enjoying watching this kid too much.

 Every semester I teach a lesson on music. One of my favourite songs to teach is Wilson Pickett's In the Midnight Hour. It's simple and easy to understand, but my innocent and romantic little darlings are completely oblivious to it's overt sexuality. When I ask them what it's about, I get the most priceless answers.

"Why is waiting until midnight to see her?"
Maybe he works late....

I think the girl is a ghost who appears only at midnight.

I think the singer is Batman, but the girl only loves him when he's Batman, so he's waiting until midnight to change into Batman.  ahahahahah

"He says I'm gonna do all the things I told you. What do you think he told her?"

Maybe take a nice long drive somewhere...

Have a drink and look at the stars...

Maybe just hold hands and take a walk.  bibibibibi

 I love the looks on their faces when I tell them it's more or less just about sex.  uuuuuuuuuu

 Last week I heard they are are coming to China. Talk about getting a care package from home. Dates in Beijing on Jan 11 and Jan 30. Since getting that news I'm listening to D.O.A. everyday and even set the ringtone on my phone as D.O.A.'s "Waiting For You".

Perro come perro - Superlitio

And whatever else Colombian group names pops up for me on Limewire.  Superlitio are cool, kinda a bit more mellow than I expected given Perro Come Perro, the movie (aka "Dog Eat Dog"), but anyhoo, anyone got any suggestions?  

Zurdok, a Mexican rock band, also popped out in the searches, and they're great, but I'm looking for modern Colombian.

May give some salsa a try too.  Ariba!

Technically, I know nothing of Colombian music.  But last night I watched Perro Come Perro (http://www.ny.remezcla.com/re/article.jsp?a=384) and got a little excited.  bfbfbfbfbf  It's a gangster film set in Cali.

I tried Limewiring everything I saw in the music credits, but only got hits for Superlitio. Que Vo'hacer and Lo Fi aren't bad ('cept Lo Fi's sung in English and ain't ethnic much.)

What can I tell ya, I'm getting tired of Western music and modern Colombian has a cool sound.  afafafafaf  Assuming no accordions of course.

Got any tips?  Anything's open for a listen.

Not ethnic enough? Ugh. I'll let that one pass. asasasasas

I can recommend:

-1280 Almas
-Kraken (sounds a little like hair metal. One of the classics)
-Leon Bruno
-Aterciopelados (another classic. if you want to hear "ethnic", none better than this bfbfbfbfbf)


Nothing else comes to mind. I have been a bit disconnected of the rock scene back home since I came here.

What do you think of the English singing bands, musically speaking? Only that they're not ethnic enough?

Post by: Calach Pfeffer on June 30, 2009, 03:26:12 PM
Not ethnic enough? Ugh. I'll let that one pass. asasasasas

Yeah, I paused before typing that, but, like, Lo Fi by Superlitio, it's really not a bad tune, but it could have been written and sung by anyone anywhere.  Hell, it could easily be Australian pop straight out of Melbourne--lyrics, tune, beat, sound, the lot.  Whereas Perro come perro and Que Vo'hacer, while accessible, seem nonetheless like that have something new to say, if you see what I mean.  (So I'll be downloading some other stuff too to see if they hold up.)

Or consider, for another example, Zurdok, they're Mexican, sing in Spanish, and sound like Seattle.  They're good, but it's weird listening to something so familiar except for the words.

Thus:

-1280 Almas   awawawawaw  eh, s'okay.
-Kraken  mmmmmmmmmm  What the...?  They should be dutch.
-Leon Bruno   :wtf: Opinion pending, still 'Wiring...

-Aterciopelados   bfbfbfbfbf bfbfbfbfbf bfbfbfbfbf - not bad.

Really enjoyed their Te juro que no and El Estuche, and a few others I'll listen to some more.

And in other news, found one tune by La Mojarra Eléctrica, name of Calle 19.  Funkay.

God bless 'em if they want to sound like everyone else.

Dunno.  Dunno what makes my ears key to one distinctive sound and not another.  Maybe I'm only the judge of what I'll listen to.

I'm still looking for one to rely on and a hug
Who is praying for me for me troubles
Angry for me for my trouble
Hints about the well-being of the beginning
Let us slowly close to the fate
Then lonely being devoured
Boredom becomes a lot to talk about a changing
A small dimple the most beautiful long eyelashes is your mark
Every day I miss your smile I can not sleep
You do not know how important you are to me
With the integrity of your life is just
Long eyelashes charming little dimple hopeless
I slowed down the pace feels like drunk
Heart has finally found a beautiful consonance
A good warm life
I will always love you to the old

Weeds is indeed very cool.  On spec I downloaded the pilot a few days ago, and now I'm halfway through season 4!  The music is super cool too.  It's not my usual kind of music, but it has so much coolth.  A few songs I've had on high rotation:

Hill Of Beans - Satan Lend Me A Dollar
Xocoyotzin Herrera - Anos y 4 Meses
One Thousand Tears of a Tarantula - Dengue Fever
The Dresden Dolls - Girl Anachronism

DeVotchKa - Head Honcho

Right now I'm listening to Mike Patton's (dude from Faith No More) new solo album, Mondo Cane. He's taken a lot of classic Italopop tunes from the '60s and '70s and done them with full orchestral arrangement. But that's not the coolest part. Patton is a big fan of Italian horror and many of these songs are culled from famous composers' contributions to cult Italian horror films, like the theme from Mario Bava's Diabolik, composed by the awesome Ennio Morricone (he scored The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) as well as my favourite, Italian pop craftsman Nico Fidenco.

If you like that song by Dengue Fever, I wonder how you'd find this one:

Godsmack - Voodoo @ tudou.com (http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/hJtpy1ubSrU/) (not banned in China, I presume)

***

EDIT: Went through Dengue Fever's Venus on Earth album. Awesome. Cambodian pop with the best remnants of psychedelic '60s rock. My favourite songs are Seeing Hands, Woman in the Shoes and Oceans of Venus. Great rec!

Godsmack - Voodoo @ tudou.com (http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/hJtpy1ubSrU/)

Not bad.  Except I can understand the words.  ahahahahah

Venus on Earth is the Dengue Fever album I like best, too.  Apparently their earlier albums include a lot of 30+ year old Cambodian pop covers. So I went looking.

Currently loving:

Meta Oun Pong by Pan Ron

and quite a few from Ros Sereysothea:
Ros Sereysothea - Penh Jet Thai Bong Mouy (Ago Go) 2
Ros Sereysothea - Khernh Snaeh Khnyom Te
Ros Sereysothea - Jam 10 Kai Theit
Ros SereySothea - Brokenhearted Woman

There's a four CD set out there somewhere called Cambodian Rocks.

I will check out your other recs but first I must get over Dengue Fever which seems to have given me, uh...fever. lol I've also passed the vid around to my friends and it's slowly going viral among us.

Here's something cool I found. A live TV performance of "Seeing Hands."

Seeing Hands @ VodPod (http://vodpod.com/watch/3471685-dengue-fever-seeing-hands-live-later-with-jools-holland) (here's to hoping this site's unblocked)

Note how at 2:19 she sings the fast part of the verse in her lower register. It really threw me off at first!

Post by: Calach Pfeffer on May 27, 2010, 10:16:26 PM
Maybe she's a smoker.  ahahahahah  It seems like in the live performances there's a few places where she's not doing all the difficult stuff they did in the studio.  I also wondered for a while too if that fast part of the verse wasn't the result of some studio effect that was too hard to do live.  And whether or not the bass player was a cokehead.

I've been working my way through Cambodian Rocks.  It's not bad, although it's a bit difficult to find something as striking as Dengue Fever.

Still really liking Meta Oun Pong.  (It's great, and not on Cambodian Rocks. mmmmmmmmmm)




Dengue Fever seem like such a cool band, though.  All of them dance like they were at a high school formal and every live video of them looks and sounds really fun.  Go them!  bfbfbfbfbf bfbfbfbfbf bfbfbfbfbf

Personal album favs:

Dengue Fever
22 Nights.
Pow Pow.

Escape From Dragon House
One Thousand Tears Of A Tarantula
Saran Wrap
Hummingbird

Venus on Earth
Seeing Hands
Sober Driver
Monsoon of Perfume

I like concert music, but I am constantly searching for music to listen to while out running. Mahler just doesn't inspire me to run that extra km.

The trouble is that I'm so sick of the songs I have on my MP3 because they've been there for years. I'm so sick of listenng to old Dsstiny's Child, Justin Timberlake and Chemical Brothers tracks, and I seem to speand half my run clicking the next button.

Does anyone have any suggestions for tracks that put a little bit of rhythm in their run and fool their brain into thinking that their heels have wings on. Bear in mind that coolness is not a prerequisite. For some reason I love running to 'Einie Meanie' by Justin Bieber. The endorphins want what the endorphins want.

I happened upon them by accident.  One episode of Weeds closes with a lengthy snippet from One Thousand Tears of a Tarantula and it was cool enough to send me off Googling for a title and Limewire opportunity.  Then not knowning nothing about them I randomly Youtubed "Dengue Fever" and the first link was to Seeing Hands. (http://www.easyfreesmileys.com/smileys/music-124.gif) (http://www.easyfreesmileys.com/Free-Cool-Smileys/)

There's an mp3 torrent out there somewhere, which may or may not be dead since I'm not seeing it show up on searches (edit: it's alihihihive!), but it's attached anyway.

I do not know how I found my way back to this, but years ago I saw a film called Walker - directed by Alex Cox (1987) - and remember being struck by the music that played in one particular scene.  I liked the music so much I actually held a cassette recorder to the television to record it.

Fast forward twenty-three years and a couple of clicks here and there send me down the rabbit hole.  Like rummaging around in the attic, finding items that you forgot you owned, I suddenly find a video of Alex Cox in 2008 re-reading the reviews that Walker received back in 1987.  During the short video he criticises a critic that had criticised Joe Strummer's film score.  Suddenly I remember the music and can see the scene: Ed Harris walking through the streets whilst chaos reigns around him.

Another search and I find the piece of music.  It has a name: Brooding Six.  Modern technology means that an Mp3 is just a few clicks away.  No need for the cassette recorder this time round.

That makes a good segue: I've been listening to Of Montreal a fair bit lately.  Really epic music.  And some buddies turned me on to Wire.  I had never heard of them before, but they've been active since the 70's.  Most their songs are less than 2 minutes long, and they've clearly been ripped off by all kinds of folks.  Turns out Elastica copied huge pieces of them.

A colleague and I went to a local Quiz Night recently. We weren't regulars so we got stuck on an irregular team. One of the irregualrs we got "stuck with" had an Android phone and it had this App on it. Though phones were verbotten, he managed to keep his hidden and when they were doing the music part of the quiz, he managed to get his Android phone to 'recognize" a couple of the songs we were stumped on. But we didn't use it to our advantage. No really, we didn't.  bfbfbfbfbf

Torrent capability required. I'm using the Vuze bit torrent client, which is a free download.
Just search up "ben folds". bjbjbjbjbj

You'll certainly want the Over The Hedge  album, with the "Over The Hedge version" of our beloved Rockin' The Suburbs. It has entirely alternate and hilarious new lyrics, and a GREAT spoken interlude by William Shatner as the neighbor across the cul-de-sac.

I normally don't like live albums much, except that Ben Folds' live albums include versions of Rock This Bitch, an apparently completely extemporaneous song that the singer/pianist makes up on the spot...so every version is different. The one done live in Perth with the Western Australia Symphony Orchestra had me in hysterics.

The discography file is a wad- over a gigabyte- and I was hoping I could thin it out to what I wanted. The more I hear, the more it appears I'm keeping ALL of it. akakakakak

1. Download and install a torrent application. You us a Mac right? Try Transmission

http://www.zeropaid.com/transmission/

2.Go to a torrent site. Try Kick Ass Torrents

http://www.kickasstorrents.com/browse/

3. At the torrent site, browse or search for what you want. Then download the very small torrent file to somewhere you can find on your computer. This small file is a map that Transmission will use to find the big file that you want to keep.

4. Go to the small file and open it using Transmission. Your file will start to download and you can see its progress in Transmission. This may take some time. It depends on how many people are sharing the file. The more there are, the faster it is. It will only download while Transmission is on and running.

There are many torrent applications (called clients) and many torrent sites. Some torrent sites are private (meaning you need an invitation to join), some are paid (I don't use any of them it defeats the purpose of my stealing)

There are ways to to tweak the settings on the client to make the downloads faster, easier etc. You need to check for how appropriate these tweaks might be on your computer.

Just downed the Hall and Oates Essential Collection  album. bfbfbfbfbf

Yeah, yeah, I know...it's 80s fluffy danceable Pop...but better than most in the genre. Daryl Hall has a genuinely amazing voice, and at their best the arrangements are outstanding. Seems to sound better now than back when it was getting overplayed to death. aaaaaaaaaa

I've always fancied meself a singer, albeit these days one with a scratchy throat and a wet, hacking cough, and their early hit Rich Girl  makes me foam at the mouth. I Can't Go For That  don't sound bad, either.

Many years ago I was given a Hall and Oates concert ticket by girl I knew who was trying to avoid a bad date, and gotta admit they blew me away live. It probably didn't hurt that they had legendary guitarist/asshole G.E. Smith handling the lead guitar duties...

Want something meatier? Look for Happy The Man's Retrospective  album. I've heard Happy The Man described as having the exotic melodicism of Yes and the compositional complexity of Gentle Giant...a description that seems apt to me, and one that should have at least a few of you out there turning handsprings by now. bhbhbhbhbh
I was mainly looking for a whimsical little number called Knee-Bitten Nymphs In Limbo, which had evaded me years on Limewire and elsewhere and which I highly recommend, but the rest of it is interesting, too, and the Retrospective  collection is a lot more even than their individual albums were. bfbfbfbfbf

Finally making a torrent work for me, I turned to Spin Magazine's Top 40 Albums of 2010 and successfully downloaded 31 of them.  So far I've listened to:

Caribou- Swim: Trippy electronica.  Good background music while writing. A keeper.

Cee Lo Green- The Lady Killer: R&B/Motown revival.  I had misgivings about this one, especially when I saw a track entitled "Fuck You" ::-)  But it's actually a charming song, as is the entire album, a mix of old and new styles.  And the man can sing.  It will never be my favourite album, but when it comes up on shuffle play I won't hurry past it.

Big Boi- Sir Lucious Left Foot The Son Of Chico Dusty:  Rap.  One of my least favourite genres, but this stuff is surprisingly sophisticated, has far less profanity than I've come to expect, and contains a ton of variety.  My playlist's hiphop and rap content is low for a reason, but I don't mind hearing the odd tune.  Big Boi stays.

Best Coast- Crazy For You: They call it Surf Pop, which I figure is close enough.  It's wall of sound-type music, sort of a My Bloody Valentine meets laid back Hole, or Voice of the Beehive.  It's okay and I'll keep it, but I'd call it an also-ran album.

Crystal Castles: They're named after the arcade game, and sample said game and others... an awful lot.  I downloaded not one but two albums... enjoyed it at first, but on the whole it might have been a mistake.

Kanye West's new album: Spin named the the best of the year.  It's really good, really good.  No, really.

LCD Soundsystem's latest is the first album that's right up my alley.  Think Joy Division, updated thirty years.

Neil Young- Lenoize is amazing: hard-edged rock, gritty folk.  One of the best efforts in his entire career.

Janelle Monae, whom I had never heard of, made the most diverse album I've checked out so far.  her voice is mondo pretty, too.  I'm going to need a second listen before I really know what else to say, including how often I expect to listen to it in the future.

A while back the band Dengue Fever made some stir on here. Certainly did with me...I downloaded Venus On Earth  and went apeshit over it...and still doing so. bfbfbfbfbf

But, some updates and corrections...
They are not, strictly speaking, a Cambodian band.
They're from the USA...LA, specifically.

The amazing woman doing those amazing lead vocals IS Cambodian, she DOES sing primarily in Khmer, and the band DOES emulate the sounds of Cambodian pop music.

But other than the lead singer, the rest of the band is 'Merkin. They found Chhom Nimol while combing LA's Little Phnom Penh looking for a female singer who could complete the authentic sound they wanted. Turns out she had been a major pop star in Cambodia, from a family regarded there as musical royalty.

The band got its name- and its start- from one of the founders' trip to Phnom Penh with a friend. The founder (now their organist) came home with a pile of cheap bootleg cassette tapes that formed the band's kernel of inspiration, and the friend came home with- you guessed it- dengue fever contracted via mosquito bite.

And there we have it. If you haven't found this album yet...keep lookin'. agagagagag

Kate Bush's new album, Director's Cut.
Ok; it's not exactly new. It's new versions of songs from 'Red Shoes' and 'Sensual World' but hey, the woman's released one album of new music in the last 18 years. I'll take what I can get.
The album is interesting . I can see that the sound on those 2 albums hasn't stood the test of time, but it's going to take me a little while to get used to them. In fact at this exact moment I'm actually listening to the original version of 'This Woman's Work' and I still prefer it.
There's a new version of 'Sensual World' which now has permission to use the original James Joyce lyrics which she was initially refused permission to use.  Even though I'm not a fan of the Ulysses source material, I can see how they're an improvement poetically, but some of the other songs are re-jigging absolute classics.
Nick Hornby's last novel was about a rock star who retired suddenly and after a long absence releases an album of the demo versions of his classic 'Blood on the Tracks' legendary work, which inevitably some of his obsessive fans hate.

Marilyn Manson...the Greatest Hits collection.
Love him or hate him, the brutha do lay down some seriously hard rock. Not quite as satisfyingly brutal as Dethklok, you understand, but definitely getting into the ballpark. bfbfbfbfbf

His originals are amazing enough, but a couple of covers warrant mention.
His cover of the classic Tainted Love is better than the original...it strips away the pretty gay delivery of Soft Cell's version (of the class Frank Zappa referred to as "snotty boys with lipstick on") and connects it directly to the electrified third rail where it's always belonged. bhbhbhbhbh

He does interesting things with the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) . If you can get to something like YouTube, check out his video on this one. bfbfbfbfbf  However, the cut stands up just fine on its own, without the video.

Well, maybe you at least heard lead singer Nathan Explosion's graduation speech given to the graduating class at Harvard, the one summarized (or maybe more like expanded upon; Nathan tends to be a man of few words) in the song Go Forth and Die ?

But Dethklok is hardly a memory. New episodes of Metalocalypse  are still coming out, hopefully leading to more albums, and I personally had the honor of being blown clean out of my chair by them in concert, a bit over a year ago. bfbfbfbfbf agagagagag akakakakak

I simply can't imagine anyone NOT liking Dethklok's music. Sure, it IS brutal and heavy, but it's done to such total perfection that it actually transcends its own genre. Dethklok has brought deathmetal music to its apotheosis, and set the bar so high I fear no one else may ever clear it. The first three songs of Dethklok's first album, Murmaider  and Go Into The Water  and Awaken , when heard consecutively leave me totally spent. And I want the song Thunderhorse  as continuous soundtrack to my life.

Why, I'm listening to it right now. agagagagag

You ought to know the name Gilberto Gil. He's a genuine Godfather of modern Brazilian folk, and in turn has influenced artists around the world. Gil was (and still is, I guess) part of a musical movement that even helped shape modern relatively-democratic government in Brazil; it's all in Portuguese and just sounds wonderful. I'm currently listening to his 1970s classic album "Expresso 2222"...and if anything it's fresher and more relevant than ever.

OK...back home and chillin' before bed.
Went to my favorite radio station server site, Radio Tuna (radiotuna.com), browsing the Folk category, which contains much of their World music.

On a lark tried one called Radio Oira out of Latvia, rockin' that Latvian Folk music.
Much to my surprise, a fair amount of the music is...beautiful.
Totally unique.
Exotic and interesting.
Hypnotic.
Some of it is a modern fusion, some of it is obviously WAY old school.
So if you're bored some night, try tuning this one in.
It's on Radio Tuna under "Folk", or try www.radiooira.lv (http://www.radiooira.lv)

Latvian folk tends to wear thin after a little while.

Hatsune Miku - Ievan Polkka (http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjY1NjI5OTg0.html).

It's apparently a whole meme now in China: a Japanese vocaloid covers the scat section of a modern rendition of a traditional Finnish polka that emphasizes agricultural themes, and you make a video of your colleagues, classmates, workmates doing the dance. With leeks.

But these vocaloid things are cool. Speech synthesis is apparently much easier for Japanese than it is for English, thus the Miku products. They morphed into metal too, where they're called Hagane Miku.

GUMI (not GAGA) is another one of those vocaloids, and I don't know who produced Poker Face.

There's a whole MMD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MikuMikuDance) scene over on Nico Nico Douga (http://www.nicovideo.jp) that makes up seems like hundreds of different videos for this one song too.

Cute! For Science!

Vocaloid, voice synthesis for music, is technically much easier for Japanese than English (I think I was reading there's like an order of magnitude difference between the number of discrete sounds or the number of discrete changes between sounds or something), so while English speech synthesis still sounds shit, and even japanese doesn't sound completely right, still they're making arguably (a lot of awful, awful pop, but also) some cool tunes. And it seems to be social media-type communities doing it.

I mean, for god's sake, they gave us DANCEROID!!!!111!!!eleven (http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMzAzMzE2NTAw.html). That Danceroid video is the archetype for hundreds of MMD copies using the software characters for the vocaloids... and their pantsu!!!

One of the things I do to combat this is I listen to audiobooks and especially podcasts. I commute for various part time gigs and I use that time to listen to sports talk, tech news and whatever else I find interesting.

One podcast that has recently come to my attention is The China History Podcast (http://www.chinahistorypodcast.com/ChinaHistoryPodcast/Home.htm) by Laszlo Montgomery (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2011-06/17/content_12720818.htm). He covers some important episodes in Chinese history and speaks in a calm way while describing some really turbulent times. The weekly podcasts are usually about 30 minutes long and are a good way to start learning about Chinese history.

Sinica podcast (http://popupchinese.com/lessons/sinica) is another excellent English language podcast about China but it looks at contemporary China. The latest episode Morally Adrift? (http://popupchinese.com/lessons/sinica/morally-adrift) from June 12, 2012 is a must listen, especially for expats living in China.

I download them right to my phone but you can use iTunes (http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/) or get them from the sites themselves.

I too listen to "The China History Broadcast"...it's very, very good...
I primarily use my iPod for exercise and, for some reason, Southern Rock is good for that. I have a nice selection of Canned Heat, The Kentucky Headhunters, Confederate Railroad, ZZ Top and, naturally, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Spiced up with some Robert Palmer, Ramones, "My Sharona" and other stuff....very good for passing an hour on a treadmill agagagagag agagagagag

Greetings Stil - thankee for the link to Chinese History Podcasts - terrific! 

That's what I will be listening to as soon as ... as for this afternoon during intermittent bouts of tidying the rather untidy lodgings - the Tragically Hip and lots of it. A beer, a broom and the Hip make cleaning fun.

Clean ALLLLLLLLLL the things!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's time for my annual post-Xmas push for new tunes.  My drive to listen, alphabetically, to all 8700 of my tracks has almost reached the W's, and in all modesty my "top rated" file is a fabulous read.  ababababab

But if you don't update your music you rust and grow old.  I've hit some sampler sites that offer single tracks (or some portion) and have concluded that music has improved of late.  So it's time to gorge and download.  here's my plan of action:

1.  There's nearly 5 pages of this read to dig back through; that should yield some leads of both new and known artists.

2.  References from friends.  A weird source:  I hit 'like' for Garbage, who released one of my favourite albums of all time (self-titled, 1995; GET THIS ENTIRE ALBUM).  They recommended a band called Far From Alaska.  I found 4 tracks on Youtube and LOVE them!  Unfortunately they don't have a page on Wikipedia, and Torrentz hasn't heard of them either.  Brick wall.  And my vpn just bugged (I think it's me, not the GFW) so FB won't be any help for the moment.

3.  Best-of album articles for 2012.  I had a tremendous yield off of 2010, a more meagre one from 2011.  The trick is to hit a variety of sites: don't be too snobbish to check out the top 40; accept that half of the hipster list won't be findable; and when in doubt, download first, listen later.

I'll start shortly and update here.  Hope we can all get in on the dialogue.

I started with the lists from Pitchfork and Spin (halfway through the latter).  Full plate!

But first I tackled my existing, unlistened-to tracks.  I'm up to the letter Y! Less than 200 remaining tracks.  I looked ahead and found Japanese albums; thanks to Wikipedia I figured out the artists and album names. 

- Ringo Sheena was my biggest acquisition this year.  The album I have is Sanmon Gossip, and it's a TREASURE.  Get this album!  bhbhbhbhbh

- Susumu Hirasawa is also pretty good: electronica with vocals.  Accessible and easy on the nerves.

I got the entire discography of Swans.  I like it so far, but that's an awful lot of industrial- 8 albums!  Their 1st one, Filth, just played; I disliked the 1st track but the rest are good.

Now listening to Sweet Heart Sweet Light by Spiritualized.  Think 90's Brit pop meets Velvet Underground- closest I can come.  This is another winner.  So far so good!

When this one's done I'll switch over to TV shows: my hard drive is getting packed, and that'll free up room.

The new album by Ludovico Einaudi, 'In a Time Lapse'.

It's embarrassing, but the first time I heard Einaudi play live and he started the concert with a completely new piece of music, I was really emotional. I thought I'll never see Chopin or Rachmaninov, but here I am now.

That was a long time ago. Now he's a Classical music pop star and his music is everywhere.  The review of this latest album in the British paper 'The Independent' reads like a press release. I'm not sure what to make of the album. I always hoped that he'd write orchestral music, and of course he does have orchestras backing him live these days, but he's found his minimalist commercial niche and this album doesn't really deliver any surprises.

Lots of 'serious' Classical music afficienados detest him, but given how rich he must be now, I doubt he cares.

In an effort to find some new musical discoveries, I downloaded the 2011 SXSW artist sampler. Whoah. 800 songs by as many artists. Bands from all over the world, too. I've since been tracking down albums by many of these bands. It would take me forever to describe them, but here is a short list:

The Bright Light Social Hour
The Refreshments
HORSE:the band
The Novocaines
Kublai Khan
Lolita No. 18
The Cambodian Space Project
Peelander-Z
Boom-Boom Box
Fever Fever
Dance Laury, Dance
The Stripminers
HOWL
The Jack Grace Band
Faceless
Ezra Furman and The Harpoons
Alexis Fox (stripper name or what?)
The Faceless
The Rubber City Rebels
The Streets On Fire
The white Eyes

 I also downloaded a torrent called 1001 rare punk 7 inches. Lots of great stuff on there (The Dishrags, The Spores, The First Steps) that is only available on out of print vinyl.

Before I came to China, I spent about two years in Mexico. I came to absolutely LOVE The Gipsy Kings (even though they are NOT Mexican, they are Spanish/Catalan/French).

I have been listening to their music for about 4 months straight now on my MP3. I may be a strange bird, but I go through phases like this sometimes. I spent almost three years in graduate school listening to nothing but Miles Davis. I was doing a lot of writing at that time and I went through a phase when song lyrics really bothered me and I didn't want to hear them at all.

There's one section when some Islamic emissaries, unaware of the invasion, are on the way to Beijing and describe what they think is a hill in the distance but it turns out to be a huge pile of bodies...and the road there is impassable because of blood and other fluids... aoaoaoaoao

'Inspirato' by Yanni.

I really like this album, very much to my surprise. For those of you who don't know Yanni, he's a sort of cross fusion New Age / classical muzak artist. When our students say they like 'classical music' they probably mean the sort of insipid slush that I've always assumed was Yanni's stock in trade. he did last year's Chinese Spring Festival show, which must have been after I went to bed, but I imagine was pretty bad.

However on this album he's got the best (or at least the most famous) opera singers in the world to sing new versions of some of his old songs with newly written lyrics, (all in Italian / Spanish etc, which no doubt is an improvement on the saccharine nonsense of those original  versions which had lyrics in English).

The album is so good, (I think my favourite Classical Music album of the year so far) I thought, 'maybe I've got Yanni all wrong' so I loaded up his playlist on Xiami, and listened to the first 5 pieces that came up. When I say listened, the third to fifth ones I only listened to the first few seconds. It was horrible, but so I'm just going to have to regard 'Inspirato' as a fantastic new album by Renee Fleming, Ricardo Villazon etc. My best guess is that the only thing co-producer Placido Domingo let Yanni do was choose the typically naff title for the album.

Let me rant a bit more. Maybe these excerpts from the press release for Yanni's 'masterpiece' will help you understand why loving this album hurts so much.

Quote
This is a one of a kind album, there has never been another album like this and there will never be another album like this.
Opera singers singing with an orchestra! I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there have been other albums like this.

Quote
Another fascinating tale lies behind the wordless song 'Ode A L'Humanite, based on YANNI's version of the 'Flower Duet' from Delibes' opera 'Lakme'. When the South African youngster Pretty Yende heard this on a television advertisement for British Airways, it sparked her love of the sound of the operatic voice, so much so, that it fired her with a desire to become an opera singer herself. Having overcome enormous hurdles, she is now one of the brightest new stars in the opera world, and has appeared in major roles at La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera - and all thanks to inspiration from YANNI.
You know what. I 'm going to give a little (99.99%) of the credit to Delibes.

Lo-o-o-ng, long ago, back when some loophole was allowing cheap import cds to be sold legally in Oz for in the order of $5 ( aoaoaoaoao), my sister bought a double cd of Nirvana - one cd was them unplugged, t'other was them live. Sounds a lot like that Paris show (but recorded differently). Anyway, those are my go-to Nirvana tunes, RFUS and Drain You.

A bit of a change for this thread, but I'm listening to a podcast. Well me and an awful lot of other people.

http://serialpodcast.org/season-one/1/the-alibi

As it turns out the structure and nature of the podcast and its crazy, crazy popularity has caused some real ethical and legal problems. But not for us, (probably). I know you won't believe that a radio show can be addictive like crack cocaine, but download it and then make sure that you have the next 5 or so hours free to listen to the first 7 episodes, because you're probably not going anywhere.

Well spotted Calach, it is a mix of lots of different stuff depending on which season I feel it reminds me more of...

For example, my  Winter mix has stuff on it like Seven byEd Kowalczyk,  Riders on the Storm (The Doors), Same Deep Water (The Cure), Because the Night (Patti Smith Group), My Delerium (Ladyhawke)... Summer Mix has stuff on it like White Limbo (Australian Crawl), #9 Dream (John Lennon, Ah Singapore (Shonen Knife), Always with me, Always with you (Joe Satriani), Bird of Paradise (Snowy White) - yes a very eclectic mix!  :shaking:

I am discovering not all Northern Soul is equal. One 3CD collection called, you guessed it, "Northern Soul - the Collection" was superduper. Most of the tunes I picked out above come from there. But another collection, "Move On Up: The Best of Northern Soul" seems to have been an exercise in some special kind of irony, for the tunes are very, very not-best. They have on display very solidly their b-side nature, but not in a good way. I am looking forward to another collection, any other collection.

Lyrics: Giddens composer: Kimura full benefits

Back to the original starting point
Your innocent face memory
We finally
To this day
Mat old photos
Memories links
Boys today for the last of about
Back to the original starting point
Stood in front of the mirror
Clumsy red tie knot
Hair in adults
Dressed in a smart suit
See you later than you imagine America
Want to go back to those years of
Before and after returning to the classroom seating
You intentionally gentle scolding
On the Blackboard of permutation and combination
Do you want to unlock
Who's who with his love for her
Missed those years of heavy rain
Those years Miss love
Want to hold you
Hugs Miss courage
Ever wanted to conquer the world
Last look back to find
It drops points in the world is all you
Missed those years of heavy rain
Those years Miss love
I want to tell you
Tell you that I have not forgotten
That night the stars
Parallel universe under the Convention
Meet me once again
Hold you tight
Hold you tight
Back to the original starting point
Stood in front of the mirror
Clumsy red tie knot
Hair in adults
Dressed in a smart suit
See you later than you imagine America
Want to go back to those years of
Before and after returning to the classroom seating
You intentionally gentle scolding
On the Blackboard of permutation and combination
Do you want to unlock
Who's who with his love for her
Missed those years of heavy rain
Those years Miss love
Want to hold you
Hugs Miss courage
Ever wanted to conquer the world
Last look back to find
It drops points in the world is all you
Missed those years of heavy rain
Those years Miss love
I want to tell you
Tell you that I have not forgotten
That night the stars
Parallel universe under the Convention
Meet me once again
Hold you tight
Hold you tight
Missed those years of heavy rain
Those years Miss love
Want to hold you
Hugs Miss courage
Ever wanted to conquer the world
Last look back to find
It drops points in the world is all you
Missed those years of heavy rain
Those years Miss love
I want to tell you
Tell you that I have not forgotten
That night the stars
Parallel universe under the Convention
Meet me once again
Hold you tight
Hold you tight

Is it okay if I say he's a bit of a moaner? His voice is very familiar from years of listening to Australian radio. But I'm just not sure about modern Oz blues. I want to say it's a bit thin. Probably an unfair comment.

The old blues and r&b stuff I'm listening to these days is just found singles. The genre called "Northern soul" has blues and r&B at one end and disco at the other, and motown in the middle. That's where I'm finding this stuff - collections of singles from that dance movement. I have always been a singles listener rather than an album guy, so the gigantic "keeping the faith" collections you find online are tailor made for me.

No one else listens to music?

I listen to a lot of music. Or, rather, I often listen to music on my Sansa. Not sure what I will do when it breaks.

But I listen to many songs repeatedly, and when I listen to something new, I do not think, "Oh! I must tell the folks on Raouls what I am listening to!"

Do you really want me to post every time I repeat "See You Again", or "Spirit of Radio", or "Self Esteem", or "She Builds Quick Machines"? I didn't think so.  Some days I listen for hours.

I see no point in listing the songs I listen to, I'm well over 99% sure no one cares, and it's a PITA to do so.

FWIW, now listening to "Forget Me Nots" by Patrice Rushen, as if anyone cares.  ahahahahah

My music posting policy:

I have determined over the years that I don't have musical taste. I do however have enthusiasms. Having no refined tastes, I tend not to hold on to music. If I start hearing a thing too often on the home jukebox, there's a good chance it'll get deleted. I tend also to like singles rather than albums. I tend to have a big backlog of things I haven't heard yet - collections of "classic soul" or some album acquired off the back of liking one passage of one song I heard on one tv show - and I work through them listening for something I can listen to again. If I find one I'm willing to play again a few times, that's the tune for the day, and I'll hang onto it for a while until I've played it out. Usually post it too.

For the purposes of finding copies to post, this correspondent enjoys cutting and pasting mp3 title info to, in the following order:

http://music.163.com
http://y.qq.com
http://www.baidu.com
http://www.kuwo.cn

There are probably other sites, but those are the ones that work for me. Baidu in particular used to be a good source for immediately playable links, but these days I seem to have to go more often to the horrible music.baidu.com, which has, in my estimation, a poopy and unhelpful player that isn't nice.

the end

The closer country comes to R&B, the more it sounds like human music. But anything that has a banjo, a fiddle, and nasal harmonies, well that has no soul. It's like the absence of soul. Spirited, sure. But no soul.

我的战马
丢失的战马
它的肩膀是突然中止的悬崖
它的梦安然躺在远方
我的猎枪
生锈的猎枪
我们一起一起死守我们的故乡
还有麦田金黄 不变的模样
流着血
闪着光
你是我脑海中最最纯洁的河岸
容纳我 和我破破烂烂的小船
带着我
最美好的
在这一刻回到那片草地旁
就像风中即将凋谢玫瑰的味道

Farewell My Country - Xing Ren He

My warhorse
fallen warhorse
Its shoulders were abruptly suspended by the cliff
It's a dream lying in the distance
My shotgun
Rusty shotgun
Together, we cling to our hometown
There are golden wheat field unchanged appearance
Bleeding
Flashing light
You are the purest river in my mind
Hold me and my ragged boat
Take me
The best
At this moment back to the patch of grass
Like the wind is about to wither the taste of roses



Would love a decent translation.

I really don't know enough Chinese music at all, but is this true: Chinese popular music is all about words? I'm not aware of any over complex or colourful music act, but left and right and everywhere you can find mournful (and/or cheerful) storytelling wordy songs as part of the popular vernacular. Or is there a Chinese jazz, funk, edm or etc scene that doesn't show it's head as much>?

Dust Off My Shoulders - Jane Zhang (http://www.bilibili.com/video/av6846194/)

Could Jane Zhang become China's first global pop star? (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-38179767)

(http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/560/cpsprodpb/12F15/production/_92798577_gettyimages-478933564-copy.jpg)

Jane Zhang is a pop megastar in China but her latest single breaks the mould of China's pop industry and could help her become its first global superstar, writes Grace Tsoi of BBC Chinese.

She first became a household name in 2005 when she finished as the second runner-up in Super Girl, a Chinese TV singing contest similar to Pop Idol.

She made a lasting impression with her impressive vocal range and was even nicknamed the "Dolphin Princess" - "dolphin notes" is Chinese slang for being able to hit the high notes.

Although she is yet to make an impact internationally, she regularly performs English-language tracks and was once even a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

But the music video of her latest single "Dust My Shoulders Off", an upbeat track produced by Timbaland, may help her get one step closer to her dream of international stardom....

What American pop stars are good at is making the effortfull look effortless, like all those wriggling dance moves. Chinese pop stars by comparison are positively languid. Attempts at crossing over look... too much like they're conserving energy. Maybe it's different in concert.

Long, long ago, EMI Australia released this: Marc Bolan ‎– 20th Century Boy (https://www.discogs.com/Marc-Bolan-20th-Century-Boy/release/3862943). Which I in a fit of who knows what did one day purchase as, I believe, a two cassette tape pack. Might have been three cassettes. And definitely second-hand. Well I'll tell you, it's not available in any form and dammit, it is the only "album" I know by heart. I cannot really listen to other compilations because nothing follows as it should. So, gol' dangit, I got some other 4CD compilation and recreated the track list. Some of the versions are not quite right ("Mustang Ford" for instance, what the hell?!), and the timing between tracks is off, but Christmas is Marc Bolan and I have my own present.
