I always listen to radio 4 on a very old radio that I drag around the garden with me I don't listen to music on the garden, somehow it doesn't seem right!! does that make me odd?!!
if I did have to listen to anybody it would have to be bowie tho
Not odd at all Claire, each to their own and I don't always have music on, it just depends how peaceful it is around generally Not a big Bowie fan though, sorry....that probably makes me odd!!
Yes Claire - you're officially odd....
I'm kidding of course - I can understand that in a weird sort of way!
One of my biggest regrets is not going to see Bowie when I had the chance of a ticket a friend had spare, 40 odd years ago when he was on the cusp of mega stardom.
Just thought another of my favs-- Mike & the mechanics--In the living years, --- looking back over my shoulder, love those two
Oooh, Love this thread, thankyou for starting it and mentioning it on the Forkers thread.
Music where would we be without it. I am a complete philistine, I tend to listen in the car and in my summerhouse, so I can screech along and do my air guitar solos without anyone seeing.
As you will guess I am a great punk fan, saw the Clash 8 times. Today I was playing Bowies Aladdin Sane in the car. Also a bit of an Indie fan. Foals and the National are current faves.
Thank you Punk and welcome to the thread
So you're a punk fan PD, I never realised I like a bit of The Clash and love Town Called Malice but that's the Jam......are they classed as punk?
Tracey, probably not, but definetely classed as good.
Anyone else remember Graham Parker and the Rumour, another of my all time favourites.
Sorry can't help you on that one Punk....maybe before my time (I'm only 27!) or out of my league
I used to listen to an entire Opera when I was sitting on the tractor cutting the grass. I't the only time I get the chance to listen to one in its entirety in one " sitting "
Janis Joplin anyone?, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations...all good for dancing to.
I remember them pd. Not a fan but I think my ex husband quite liked them. He was keen on punk too although I wasn't but we had lots of common ground in music -Neil Young, Tom Petty, Queen etc. I like some songs - Should I stay or should I go? is a great song.
Weren't the seventies a strange decade? Singer songwriters and glam rock at the beginning and punk at the end - with disco sandwiched in between - heaven help us! ...
I love that picture I have in my head now Hostafan Do you sing the arias?
Fg., love Neil Young, After the Goldrush a classic. Only Love Can Break Your Heart. Also do you know the unplugged version of The Needle and the Damage Done.
Ooh you've all lost me now LOL
Fairygirl. Over the noise of the engine, mercifully nobody can hear me. lol
Classic songs pdoc. My sis used to play Needle when she was a student! Southern Man and Birds also big faves for me . After the Goldrush is my favourite Neil Young album. Saw him many years ago in Glasgow and he was brilliant. He's not really appreciated enough here. Watched a great concert recently on tv from about 8/9 years ago. It's a wonder he's survived this long! Joni's 'Circle Game' is about him.
Tracey - Neil Young is one of the greats. Did all the bad stuff and survived thankfully - just like James Taylor. Needle and the Damage Done is about addiction. Great writer, does his own thing and a big influence on many of today's s.songwriters.
Dire striats--- Romeo& Juliet, or Brothers in arms, Money for nothing.-- Kenny Rogers--Lady. Neil Young-Harvest.
Temptations, Smokey Robinson............
Quite like--One Republic--Counting Stars.
Nazareth "Broken down Angel" saw them live only a few years ago Dan still vocalist but son on lead guitar.
Thin Lizzy "Emerald"
Meatloaf " Two out of three aint bad"
Free / Bad company.
Rod, most things.
Anything by Andrea Bocelli so lovely I want to
Alfie Boe, when he wears jeans, a leather belt and "rocks"
The list is endless. Best to iron to is Dr. Hook love songs.
Fairy just reminded me of this one----I will survive. Yes Kef loads of Rod Stewart and of course Elvis , Thin Lizzy...Whisky in the jar.....oh loads and loads I cant think of at the mo
You can go your own way
