As it's Easter Sunday......I am The Resurrection by The Stone Roses  Eldest son has just put it on as a 'must play'!!!

Apologies to all those who don't have quite the same taste

OL., you should be really proud, your son has great taste.

We were coming home very late last night from my sisters and were playing Marvin Gayes greatest hits. What a voice.

Orchid Lady

I agree Punk, I can't think where he got it from   

I was listening to Marvin Gaye the other day but on a compilation album my boys bought for Mother's Day a few years ago of Motown music 

How boring if we were all the same, they would only need one and clone it.

At this very moment after a good lunch I am relaxed with the Mozart Piano Concerto number 25 in C Major played by Martha Argarich.

The sun is shining but a cold Northerly drove me in from my sunny spot in the garden so music it is, "oh" and watching the Grand Prix with the sound off.

I actually like Mozart too Frank, I quite often play Classic FM when I am driving a lot to keep me calm 

Do you need the sound off on GP now, aren't the cars too quiet anyway?

Orchid Lady, it is not the sound of the cars it is the commentators talking a load of rubbish. The sound of wonderful pianists playing Mozart is much more to my liking.

We've got touring cars on.....I'm tolerating it because I have 2 GW episodes to catch up on later 

The music today was Country and Western, the mob landed, stripped out the Conservatory cleaned it top to bottom and installed the new stuff.

My SIL discovered my stack of old LP's with the original artists and the record player, they were dancing round and singing as they mopped and washed, mad lot no idea where they get it?

Now I have a pile of old stuff and packaging awaiting the collectors and a bright new place to spend my summer, sunny warm comfortable and I can get some plants back in.

Ooh, now I do like c&w, cant beat a bit of Dolly or Johny Cash  Saw Lady Antebellum last year and Kasey Musgrave was supporting, both acts were brilliant.  I think I may be very much in the minority though 

Orchid Lady

Errr, I hate to tell you David but that was Dolly and Kenny Rogers  Agree though, it's a brilliant song.

I'm just listening to the top 100 80's countdown on Absolute 80s 

Orchid Lady

Ha ha  Easy mistake to make, although Kenny is still with us (for now) and Johny isn't 

Number 1 of the 80s as voted for by the listeners was Living on a Prayer, I love Bon Jovi and love that song, but best song of the 80s, really??

Finally got in from the garden and endless potting up for flooded gardens and am listening to Tom Waits; Beautiful Maladies; just wonderful

Orchid Lady

David, I absolutely love Tracy Chapman, even if my youngest son does think she sounds like a man he still likes her too!!  My favourite (I think) is Behind The Wall, quite a sad sing and her voice us just beautiful 

Not heard of that Tom Waites song Artjak, will have to google, I think the only song of his I know is Missing You.

O.L. it is a whole CD; am now listening to 'Next'; Jaques Brel songs sung by various artists mainly in English. My newest CD is Stratus sings Weill, sadly too much of it is in German, though there are translations in the booklet.

My C&W is Lynn Anderson, Marty Robbins, George Jones, Lester Platt and Earl Scruggs kind. Raking through the LP's I found Bay City Rollers "Agh" Manuel Music of the Mountains, Shadows, Tramps, James Last and "who the H--- bought that", Singalong with Max, shows what an eclectic household we were. I put some Waltz music on the record deck and it did not sound too bad.

There is a pond in the garden where there was not one yesterday, it is dull and grey though still warm in the Conservatory, I will get the mince on cooking then go have a sit and listen to some old memory, that will not be Max or Bay City Rollers.
