Interesting you mentioned Christmas songs - mine is Fairytale of New York by the Pogues (featuring the late Kirsty McColl whose works were the first I ever collected), which sums up a lot of what I really think of the season:

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

.....

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you



Favourite skeptic/atheist song would have to be The Atheist Tabernacle Choir by Spitting Image, which can be downloaded from the Infidel Guy show.

I have very eclectic tatses in music... I have a huge amount of music on my laptop - opera, jazz, pop, rap - everything from Carmina Burana to Eminem

Yes I love African music. I was dating a white Saffa girl last year and I had a chance to listen to her music. The rhythms, percussion, everything, it just blew me away, and I went and bought 2 Johnny clegg CD's the very next day.

I have a couple of Miriam Makebe tracks on a mix CD along with Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Baaba Maal, etc.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo do some great Gospel songs.....very nice to listen to when I am in a certain sort of mood

As for "sceptical" lyrics I must say I really like Randy Newman:

-God's song
-Great nation of Europe
-Political science

Depends on whether you consider Hendrix's "Fire" an agnostic song.

"Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars— mere globs of gas atoms. Nothing is 'mere'. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches my imagination— stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern— of which I am a part... What is the pattern or the meaning or the why? It does not do harm to the mystery to know a little more about it. For far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it!

Music

Postby Kitiara » Thu Jun 29, 2006 7:13 am

Wow. Great topic...
I need to check out all the songs you guys have mentioned. I am so behind on music.
I don't know the names of most of the stuff I like, so I google lyrics, and come up with stuff.
Best thing in my life, lately, I don't need to save/download music, I am so infrequent, is: http://www.youtube.com/browse?s=mf Put stuff in the search engine, maybe get videos...
I loved Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, would love to hear more of her.


My favorite Christmas song is:

CHRISTMAS DINNER :: Peter, Paul & Mary

And it came to pass on a Christmas evening
While all the doors were shuttered tight
Outside standing, a lonely boy-child
Cold and shivering in the night.

On the street every window
Save but one was gleaming bright
And to this window walked the boy-child
Peeking in saw candlelight.

Through other windows he had looked at turkeys
And ducks and geese and cherry pies
But through this window saw a gray-haired lady
Table bare and tears in her eyes.

Into his coat reached the boy-child
Knowing well there was little there
He took from his pocket his own Christmas dinner
A bit of cheese, some bread to share.

His outstretched hands held the food and they trembled
As the door it opened wide
Said he "Would you share with me Christmas dinner?"
And gently said she "Come inside."

The gray-haired lady brought forth to the table
Some glasses to their last drop of wine
Said she "Here's a toast to everyone's Christmas,
And especially yours and mine!"

And it came to pass on that Christmas evening
While all the doors were shuttered tight
That in that town the happiest Christmas
Was shared by candlelight.

As for dieties, I have my own god. I pray day and night. I am not an atheist, but I doubt any god is as perfect as my own.

The mere thought of a diety with genitals makes me scream.
"He" would not be an operative word, there.
I don't try to make my god into a boyfriend or father figure.
I would not don leather and snap a whip at my diety.
My diety is everything the other dieties wish that they could be.
Mostly, my diety laughs, and enjoys watching us.
My diety does not wish for people to be scared, but hopes that they feel inspiration and joy.

My player is on my forum if you want to hear any of these songs.

Ella had a beautiful voice, but I have to be in the mood for Jazz singing. I love Charlie Parkers music and Bop overall appeals to me. My wife likes Country music, but it's not my cup of tea. (Though I do like some songs like the one Allison Kraus did with Sting. You Are My Ain True Love) Hunter Thompson had the song Mr Tambourine Man played at his funeral. (That's why it's on my player) I would like the Peter Gabriel song Passion to be played at my funeral. (It's from The Last Temptation Of Christ) It's a beautiful song. Imagine would be a good choice too, it's a very hopeful song.

"Should I Stay or Should I Go" -The Clash (IIRC)

I was listening to Metallica's 'Fade to Black' earlier.

Fall Out Boy- Sugar, We're Going Down Swingin'

I listen to Led Zep, Robert Johnson, Korn, Enya, Rob Zombie, Linkin Park, Any Classical but especially Bach, I love Blues, but am not that fond of Jazz, Elton John, Billy Joel, Cradle of Filth, Slayer, Kiss....well, the list does go on.

Pretty much anything but Country, Rap, and R&B, though I will listen to 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' and some Kid Rock and the Beasty Boys(are these rap?).

I grew up in the south and my wife likes country, so I've grown to tolerate it over the years. (I don't seek it out though) A guy on my forum requested I put some country songs on my MP3. I'd promised in the past I would include any songs that members wanted, so I did.

As for music I can't stand, Rap and R&B for the most part. I like The Roots and older stuff like Al Green, but for the most part modern Hip-Hop grinds on my nerves.

To me, country is definitely music hell. Also european trance music falls into the music-I-hate-category.

I just loaded a new CD onto my laptop
"The Best of the Andrews Sisters"
It goes nicely with my "Glenn Miller collection" :)

I think that 'Musical hell', for me, would be difficult to define, because I can find something I like in almost any genre - Rap, Punk, Country, Opera, Musical, Electronic, Jazz......etc, etc.

I guess musical hell would be a bad singer with a bad song

Listen to his guitar work on the song Journey To The Center Of The Mind, while with the Amboy Dukes (much earlier than Stranglehold). The song is standard late 60s acid/rock, but Nugent's driving guitar was awesome for the time, and still.

I've been playing the devil out of a new CD: Old Crow Medicine Show. Bluegrass newcomers, very talented. Imagine the Stones or the Band playing bluegrass in a more modernized, much looser style.

A very slow and painful death comes to mind.

Yngwie Malmsteen is good stuff.. :D

As for Boxcar and the others, not really my bag - I'm much more of a metal/rock guy.

I'm just back from a small folk festival near Eindhoven (Netherlands) and still enjoying my unwashed post-festival buzz. While most of the bands have their roots in the Irish/Celtic music like Lunasa and the Tannahill Weavers (both were great) there were quite some more exotic bands.

While typing this I'm listening to a CD of Troitsa, a band from Belarus with old music from that region I say today. Quite powerfull and a bit strange to my ears with a violin used as a drone instrument and a powerfull low voice. http://www.troitsa.net/index2.html (the songs on the site are a bit tame compaired to the live show but good nonetheless)

Yesterday we've also had some very good concerts; Fransesco Branchini a flutist clarinet and arabic flute player who played East European, Mid Eastern and medieval songs accompanied by a percussionist and accordeon. http://www.francescobanchini.com/summar ... nglish.htm

Mercedes Péon a Galician woman who produced an assault of sound with her voice, Galician bagpipe and her band, blew me away. http://www.mercedespeon.net/html/html_ingl.htm

Also I enjoyed Terrafolk from Slovenia, 4 classical trained musicians that fill their show with a mix or classical, gypsy, Eastern European, Irish, rock music and humor. Highly recomendable, especially their version van Halens Jump with accordeon and Mozarts as he would have played it himself if he had found himself in a gypsies camp and drunk). http://www.terrafolk.org/ (sadly no mp3 previews)

My last review is of No Blues, also a mix of styles. Here there was a combination of J.J.Cale like slide guitar, J.J. Cale like blues and taqsim an arabian music style played with the U'd. http://www.myspace.com/NObluesnl

I'm sorry it turned in a bit of advertising post but if you want some
Alan Lomac-like experience try them.

P.S. Martin thanks for the Old crow medicine show tip
