What Music are you Listening to at the Moment?
Thought this would be a fun thread to start off in here!

Music is my first love :angel12: - always searching for emotional and expressive songs and albums...

Right now I am listening to the album Salvation by Alphaville - it's a fabulous homage to synthpop - I love their original album with Forever Young, Big in Japan etc... Yes, I am a child of the 80s :D ...

Etheral synth sweeps, distant-evoking chords and inspiring syncopation!

I love this....

Honza 08-10-2006 06:21 PM

Good question.
At the moment I'm listening to the 'Scissor Sisters' latest album. They are a very funky/poppy band from New York.
Also, and strangely for me, I'm getting into Metal (new and old), I really like the 'Heaviness' and drive.

And for my staple diet of music I have my House Music collection, which I could not be without. As someone once said; "Not everyone understands House Music; its a Soul thing, a Body thing, a Spiritual thing..."
Couldn't agree more!

Cheers, Jan.

i like scissor sisters too honza :D

i've been still thrashing Interpol, an NY band i started listening to last year and can't stop, i love their music.

i've also been guilty of nostallgia and have been listening to a lot of music from last summer in UK like Athelete, Arctic monkeys, Bloc party etc...

i'm relaxing to The Beautiful South's album Blue is the Colour, the Lost in Translation soundtrack and the Boards of Canada...

and downloading old songs that remind me of my childhood for nostalgia again...even rod stewart and the scorpians! i actually burst into tears when i heard Winds of Change again...i finally went to Berlin this year and it now means even more to me.

sorry guys....went on a bit....i adore music. :)

I love my genuine native Hawaiian music, and some ethnic(?) music of an African group who did "Boheme"; some Native American CDs; some music from "WingMakers" website; various meditation CDs. Occasionally I'll put on a classic of Beethoven or Mendelsohn or Bach or other traditional CDs.

Over my life, my sanity has been saved several times by having some lovely music to play...

BLAIR2BE 09-10-2006 11:34 PM

hey honza,
was it bad boy bill?? i could almost swear, bad boy bill "said" that (at least one of the first to "say" it). i quite agree though, not everyone understands house music. many try to include break beats and what not into the same genre as house; wrong!!! house is in a class of its own...

music, to me, ...well, bob marley said it: "one good thing about music; when it hits ya, you feel no pain. so hit me with music" ...i coulndt say it better!!
let me play my broken record and say 311 and bob marley are my all time favourties. 311, for there spiritual views, bomb beats and riffs, x-treme energy and unique sound, immitated by many, matched by none!!
bob marley, well, do i really need to advertise bob??

the rest of my top ten... (in no particualr order)...

sublime (groovin, eclectic, soulfull)
blind melon (the live recordings mostly)
david bowie (all of it, but the early stuff a bit more)
fredrick chopin (pained music, but with hope and faith)
robert johnson (the best in delta blues)
rage against the machine (for the fantasticlly creative dissidence)
the stones (older songs)(for there celebration of life)
fleetwood mac (just feels good, instills nastalgia)
janis joplin, nofx, nin (to feed my dark side), "the insider" soundtrack, pink floyd, on and on and on.....

(nothing new lately though):(

Enlightener 10-10-2006 02:51 AM

Get choppin' Poppin'
Recently I have been listenening to:

Yes; first and third albums
Jethro Tull
Klaatu; very much like the beatles
Jet; good australian band
Emerson, Lake and Palmer; synthtown
and Genesis; prog prog prog!

If you are a child of the 80's Devolution, I must be a child of the 70's, I just love 70's music, mostly progressive rock though.


Ascended Master 10-10-2006 10:27 PM

Bob Dylan!
All the way! lol

Funnily enough!

i must check out that link soon mikron :)

enlightener....i saw in a post recently that had been hidden again, that you recommended jethro tull because of the celtic influence in their later music. thankyou! i will give them a listen :D

i have been getting into my old teenage passion of U2 again. bono has always been on a spiritual quest so to speak and i always identified with his search. so i have been loving songs like Gloria, 2 hearts beat as one, beautiful day, city of shining lights,

acrobat from the achtung baby album has always been my favourite. especially when i was in my darkest moments. it helped draw me out and fight for myself again :)

Enlightener 13-10-2006 08:37 AM

Gooj gallywop?
Especially their two albums Songs From the Wood and Heavy Horses, I was listening to it the other day and it was brilliant.

One critic actually said that SFTW was the greatest album he hadd ever listened to.


bluespirit 13-10-2006 09:52 AM

I bought a cd recently of Native American music which I have never listened to before. So good for meditating.
This one is called 'Spiritual Music' Indians relax songs.

e-ma 13-10-2006 05:41 PM

I'm listening to R Kelly's 'U Saved Me', about faith and spirit :cool:

Hooray, Rose. Another U2 fan!

True Bono has always been on a spiritual quest. That drew me to the band too. My favorit U2 songs are 'All I want is You' and 'Bad'(The Live Version), 'New Years Day' etc, the list goes on. They are excellent.

Jethro Tull are cool too.

rose 14-10-2006 04:55 AM

yay... let me shake your hand fellow U2 fan :D

i love new year's day as well. spooky to me now as my partner's mother died on new year's day. those lines "i want to be with you night and day, but nothing changes on new year's day...i will be with you again" make me cry for him.

i love the live version of bad. i love them all :)

enlightener - i will try and find that album :)

Honza 14-10-2006 05:17 AM

Hi Rose,

Since you are a U2 fan, can I ask you what you think of their latest album; 'How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb'?
I have not got it yet and I was wondering if its still as good as their earlier stuff.

Cheers, Jan.

rose 14-10-2006 05:39 AM

hi honza

i've drifted from their later works. the music just hasn't grown and moved on. they are like retirement albums in a way. but some songs stand out. i think vertigo is a great song...so is city of blinding lights. the live version is better and more powerful though. bono really seems to feel the words he's singing there.

maybe i haven't given it the listen i should have. it does seem so much more of a reflective album. i guess because the music didn't grab me, i didn't really absorb the songs and their lyrics much. i will give it a better chance and listen to it more.

all that you can't leave behind was another album that didn't grab me except beautiful day and new york (whoah what a song). my favourite U2 albums are achtung baby and zooropa. i loved the concepts behind those albums. and i have rediscovered their first albums because of bono's almost naked longing to understand. and i can identify with that more now than when i was younger.

oh and i have always adored the unforgettable fire album.

some of the lyrics in their later songs are wiser and special in that way...but other songs feel forced sort of.

oops...sorry, went on a bit. what do you think of them today? what are your favourite albums?

rose 14-10-2006 11:29 AM

i have a new favourite song called young folks by peter, bjorn and john. not exactly spiritual music but if anyone here likes the sound of a swedish pop band who whistle a lot then i recommend downloading it :D

i love music that feels so great it makes you shiver. i love the fact that music nevers fails to do this to me :) well...music i love...and there's so much of it out there.

Honza 14-10-2006 01:41 PM

Hi Rose,

The later albums seem a bit forced to me too. I remember when U2 first started; there was a half Polish chap with me at school and he was a huge fan of theirs who got me to sit up and pay some attention to them.
They were a very fresh, idealistic young band with a totally unique sound.
My favorite albums are; War, Unforgettable Fire, The Joshua Tree, Rattle and Hum, and Achtung Baby. Their very early stuff and their later stuff is fine but it just does not do it for me.
I still think they have integrity as a band today, infact I think they are aging and their music is maturing rather gracefully (compared to some bands).
But younger bands and their music is more original and 'essential'.

See you, Honza.

rose 15-10-2006 06:57 AM

that's so true honza! and i do love how the band have grown as people and it does reflect in many of their lyrics too.

that's why i love pj harvey. i grew as she grew and she sings about that growth in each album. and with each album she gets better and better. same with bjork.

daisy 29-10-2006 07:14 PM

hmmmm.................................silent night is on repeat in my head????????

lumas 29-10-2006 08:10 PM

still think im in my teens love clubby music nothing like a bit of layo and bushwhaka or missy elliot banging from my car stereo (must be a shamanic influence) and when i relax chillout sessions ministry of sound and when im really chilling clasical see i can be a bit refined...

cweiters 30-10-2006 07:25 PM

BLAIR2BE 31-10-2006 12:14 AM

Purple-Rose 11-01-2007 11:21 AM

I'm listening to "nightwish' a lot at the moment.... probably one of my favourite bands.

banana 10-02-2007 02:13 AM

I'm listening to Vangelis and a lot of 80's hits at the moment, in the nostalgic mood.

(yes, I am olde and boring)

Revena 03-04-2007 01:48 PM

well you have an answer here
I am listening to Aled Jones - Higher - my favorite piece is Be still - Have you heard

imageimaginer 05-04-2007 07:46 AM

Its great to know what everyone likes to listen to. I suppose that we all have different moods at different times and so what we listen to will in fact stimulate that mood at that time. As for me I can listen to many genres of music depending on how I feel, even classical. But my all time favourites are those songs that will make you feel. Those that are beautiful and fill your heart with with a kind of ecstasy feeling like that Angel song by Sarah McLaughlan and those of Norah Jones. At the moment what moves me inside is most important. Right now I am listening to the songs of a young New Zealand artist called Brooke Fraser, she is very stimulating. What is most impressive though is that I am a man and I'm not gay. How I can feel like this suprises even myself.

Ascended Master 09-04-2007 07:40 PM

Here's a new one!

John Meyer! :D


R and B music, and not the fake R 'n' B which stole a title it cannot afford! :D

Go on John, bring the love back! :D


Oh, and James Blunt - track 12 on his 'Chasing Time - the Bedlam Sessions' album.

Kaliayev 11-04-2007 04:22 PM

"At last" from the movie "cadillac records" as performed by Beyonce Knowles who portrayed Etta James. I bought the DVD and it is worth every penny!

"Cherokee Morning Song touches the soul. "Beauty, Sadness and Strength of Spirit" is so very over overpowering.
