LtHousLady checks Spur's profile for a location to send help to...but alas, there is none listed

Oh well, I tried! ;)

So now I have "Knights in White Satin" ringing in my head. I actually happen to be in the mood for that kind of music now & I do like older rock & roll.
At other times I like dynamic female vocals (Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Barbara Striesand, Donna Summer etc.), perferable ones with lyrics that induce thoughts of strength or something positive that I can sing along to. (although many drinks are required to do it in public....it has been known to happen...lol)

There are times I like oldies...quartet like harmoies & such.
Billy Joel & Elton John are 2 all around, long time faves. A ritual I do on my way to a lighthouse photo run is to blast Billy Joel's "Downeaster Alexa" all the way there...well, when I'm traveling alone anyway ;) Puts me in the "the way life was for them" frame of mind to go out & try to convey that in my pics.

Music is a great motivator.

David Bowie (my daughter put Ziggy in the car and that is what's been playing a lot)
Caetano Veloso
Scott Walker
Tom Waits
Velvet Underground
The Beatles (of course)
Daniel Johnston
Half Japanese

nice choices!

i discovered belle and sebastian weekend before last: i saw them briefly on the TV coverage for glastonbury and the song fought in a war just blew me away. we've had two of their cds in the house for ages, but i always thought i never liked them. i do like boy with an arab strap, but i discovered that because it was used as the end-title music to top TV show Teachers (and also in the interactive menus on the DVDs). but now i have three cds of theirs, and they're gorgeous... very wonderful.

david bowie is a god. no question. crooked teeth, mad eyes, old, weird accent, TWO tin machine albums and STILL gets to marry Iman. Hearts Filthy Lesson = one of the greatest tracks ever recorded.

Polly Harvey is lovely, only good thing to come from Yeovil... i'm seeing her live next week in Somerset House - very excited!

currently my favourite musical entities are listed thusly:

radiohead (obviously)
tori amos
keren ann
super furry animals
cooper temple clause
francoiz breut
tricky / portishead / lamb / massive attack et al
sneaker pimps
lee hazlewood
primal scream... could go on, but i won't

My iPod playlist is chock full of:

The Streets
Lenny Kravitz

Almost anything from the 20's on up through today (thanks to my daughters for keeping me up to date on Slipknot and Good Charlotte).

My favorite song since I first heard it (way before Wayne's World):
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

Favorite artist, tie between Queen and The Carpenters (like I said, my tastes are varied).

07/06/2004 11:47:04 AM · #18
Disturbed, Trapt, Three Days Grace, Offspring, Creed, Saliva...

When I want to feel old I'll pull out my Metallica, AC/DC, Scorpions, Def Leppard and oh yeah, Iron Maiden.

07/06/2004 11:54:21 AM · #19
I love all 80's Metal. In fact I am going to see Nickelback/3 Doors Down and 3 Days Grace, tomorrow. BACKSTAGE for a meet and Greet. Won them on the radio. I ALWAYS WIN. Just lucky. If interested, check out some of my concert pictures on my webshots, webpage.:

I forgot Radiohead and I discovered Broadcast this year.

Some others I didn't mention:

Yo La Tengo
Young Marble Giants
Johnny Cash
Hedwig soundtrack

Belle and Sebastian seems to be one of those bands people love to hate. Now and again, someone who claims to hate will hear something and go, "This is cool, who is this?"

I wish they toured more in the US. They played in Northampton, Massachusettes, about an hour away, but it was in a theater (I don't like rock shows with seating) and it was $25 a ticket. It would have cost me at least $100 bucks with gas to go with my two daughters. My husband was willing to sacrifice going to the show. If it had been at a club I would have laid out the cash. In the end, I had surgery the same week they were playing so I wouldn't have been up to going anyway. I don't know why they've never played Providence. Usually, bands stop off in Providence between New York and Boston. We've certainly gotten much bigger names then B&S here. I usually never have to travel to see a show.

My husband and I are kind of used to getting in shows for free because he has known one of the higher ups at one of the main club venues in Providence for years. It's always weird to actually have to pay to see a show. ;-D

They both rule in my book. One of my favorite Queen songs is, 'Stone Cold Crazy'. I put that on any mix I want to kick-ass with. I'm an aknowledged queen of mix CDs. People love my mixes. I wish there was a way to make a living at it.

If you ever get a chance to see Todd Haynes' Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, don't pass it up. It has been banned and surpressed (by Richard Carpenter). It is a fascinating docu-drama done with Barbie dolls. It sounds goofy (and at first it is) but you get sucked in and temporarily forget you are watching dolls being manipulated by human hands. It is really weird. It's not easy to get a hold of. I have a friend who used to own an underground video rental business and he had all kinds of weird bootleg stuff.

Hey Dirtkahuna, I downloaded some of the music at your site. Pretty cool. I'm not a huge surf music fan but the piece I heard goes a bit beyond surf, I thought. You should try to get some soundtrack work. Try contacting the producers of the cooler NPR shows as they play some pretty good music for their opening intros and closing bits.

I actually contacted a local NPR sponsored show and the band (V.Majestic) got a chance to play live and be interviewed but they never got their thumbs out of their asses long enough to make it happen. They've had a lot of opportunities but they get sidetracked a lot. They've been favorably reviewed in Wire, for instance, along with several other independent music magazines. They once got a mention in Rolling Stone as the dark horse standouts of the first Terrastock festival which was held in here in Providence. One of the organizers was Robert Jazz, the guitarist for V.Majestic. The other was Mark Stone, the bass player for the now defunct Medicine Ball. Anyhoo, I digress. I'm sure you understand the frustrations of trying to be original in music today.

Based on your diverse list of favorites, you might enjoy V.Majestic. They do mostly instrumentals, although there is some frequent caterwauling by the horn player. You can download anything from any of there releases at their website. You can't save the downloads, though.

edited for atrocious typos--you'd think I'd learn to use the preview button by now

Mostly Scandinavian melodic metal:
Sentenced (later albums)
Sonata Arctica
These three bands actually happen to be from Finland.
Agalloch, Linkin Park are OK, too.

Thanks a ton for checking out my songs! Since the demise of MP3.com, there hasn't been a good way for me to promote my music without resorting to spamming. I'm using Google AdWords for marketing, but so far the results have been fairly poor.

I never thought of pitching my tunes to NPR. Good idea, I'll look into it. I have had some indie filmmakers ask to use my music, and one of my songs played in a short film that was featured at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. Action/sports productions would be the best placement for my tunes.

FYI, I create short sports videos for my local high school athletic teams, using my photograpy, video, and music skills. The videos are all very well received. So far I've been doing it as a hobby, since my kids are on the athletic teams, but I'm ready to start doing it for pay.

I'll let you know how this turns out.
