I can't believe that we don't yet have a thread just for music!  Well, here it is. Grin

Thought I'd share this one which I've heard a bit on the radio recently.  It was released last year (2009) but I'm a bit slow on catching these things!  Anyway, I really like this ...

Like the River

Yes, it's on YouTube too (see spoiler), but I recommend that you just listen first. Wink

Oh, I'm over the moon tonight! Grin  Bought a new stereo (cheapie) system today and am THOROUGHLY enjoying listening to 'my' music. Thumbs up  Right now, it's Richard Marx, Eric Carmen, Sinead O'Connor, Cher (to name the last four artists) and a beaut eclectic mix of, well, 'my' music! Giggle Thumbs up

Remind me to expand on 'my' music sometime please?!! Blink

I guess I'm just a lover of music! Tongue

To me, anything with either good lyrics or a foot-tapping rhythm is 'good' music! Nod yes  I love all sorts: from jazz, country, popular classical to pop, rock, oldies and so on.

I haven't yet got to grips with some of the new-fangled names for certain genres of music, such as Indie and Trance, so I can't comment on them at this stage.  I will, however, say that what I don't like is boring rap (a very small amount of it is okay!) and really heavy 'metal'/electric guitars played badly, imo. Whistle

Some of my faves (and they are many):

Pink Floyd


Dido


Norah Jones (yes, and Bonnie Raitt too!  And, of course, Eva Cassidy Nod yes )


Phil Collins


... oops, I mean this one!


Billy Joel, who's definitely improved with age (superb sax!) Wink


Motown


... hard to pick just one but this is worth a look Wink


and another



Oh, goodness me, I've completely side-tracked myself now! Blink  And I've only been posting this for the last, ahmmm, X hours!! Blush

OMG Look at the list below! Oh my  I'd better get on with it.  Hmmm, wonder if you're still following me and checking the links?!! Whistle Lol

Louis Armstrong


Barbra Streisand

Yes, I know I could've picked a more recent, better sounding clip Unsure Tongue but I love all of hers, old or new; beautiful, gorgeous lady ... and, watch for a 'special guest' or two, including

another, unforgettable great Ecstatic ... this one's for me Red wine cheers


Neil Diamond Kissed



I digress totally, but this is worth adding: Mary Hopkins Blush


As with most all(!) of these clips, bleddy hard to pick just one, but this is probably one of my earliest memories of ...

Queen

and another bleddy difficult pick, but I've got to get on with this post! Roll eyes - Abba


Elton John
]

Eagles


Van Morrison


Jimmy Buffett

(probably not the best one of his to choose!! Nosepicker

If you can't cope with that, try this one. Wink  If nothing else, you have to admire the garb and the backdrop!! Thumbs up


Then again, there's always the 'other' baked beans song! Whistle

Oh God, where am I going?!! Rolling on floor laughing

Jack Johnson perhaps?


Hmmm, I have a sneaking suspicion that, by now, you've realised that the 70s was 'my' era! Ta da Erm

Blackmore's Night, just for summat different. Thumbs up


and a couple of my forever faves ...

Anne Murray Kiss friend


The Carpenters Ecstatic


Karen Carpenter has/had the most wonderful voice






The links are just examples. Wink

An interesting selection of songs, Dingbat.  I just got a new Ipod Nano, and have been having fun putting songs on it.  I have to keep a piece of paper in the car, and when I hear a song I like, I write it down, so I can find it and put it in.  I've discovered some songs that I didn't even realize that I liked, but they're fun to listen to.

This one always perks me up when I listen to it on my way to work:




This one is a favorite of my husband's, and I discovered that I really like it too:




And I like 'My Maria' a lot, either the original by B.W. Stevenson

  (I don't know what the video portion is all about)

or the version by Brooks and Dunn is just as good

  (interesting video that goes along with this one, good for you 'smiley' fans)

I like lots of other songs, but too many to post here.

Find a Way by Mojada - I heard this on the radio for the first time yesterday and loved it - the band is from Bondi!

If you like acoustic guitar, you will LOVE this lad. He doesn't write music...he doesn't read music...he simply picks up the guitar and plays.

clicky clicky and then scroll down a tad to 'songs' and you can listen to his magic!
