I just love listening to bagpipe, stuff like amazing grace, stuff that usually gives people headaches.

That's nothing to be ashamed of. Metallica is classic.

Hell, someday 7th grade choirs will be singing watered-down, elevator-esque versions of "Master of Puppets" at their school assemblies.

I agree. Their use of modal keys gives their music a myterious feel and someone in that group knows how to write a decent melody line. I think they are good musicians.

I'm trying to picture this one... Boulderhead sitting at his keyboard, writing a scathing rebutal to a Christian comment in the religious forum, while singing along with a download mp3 of "Up From the Grave He Arose." Now that has got to be a guilty pleasure!

Greg, I just can't accept that you like Michael Bolton. Have you tried therapy?

<imagines Sting driving his pickup out to the country, getting smashed, and blasting Metallica while shooting guns into the air>

Seriously, that's what my friends from down South said people did for fun in high school. :wink:

Can someone please tell me if Barry Manilow is only for the terminally unhip, or is some of his stuff ok?

Interesting topic.

Why has everyone been restricting themselves to music alone ?

Well, there's this absolutely corny and sugary sweet Hindi movie called "Hum Appke Hai Koun" (Indians here might have heard of it) . Its one of those things in which everyone is sweet and helpful and perfect, noone spiteful or nasty ... all the right people fall in love with the right people etc. Except for one death - an accident - nothing unpleasant happens in the movie at all !! Its a totally unrealistic movie.
But I like to watch it. Everytime they play in on Cable TV, I end up watching it. And enjoy it. I dont know what eactly I enjoy about it though ... but it leaves me with this warm fuzzy feeling (religious people will know what I'm talking about :wink:).

I like some of his earlier stuff, before he became a La Vegas lounge lizard.

The amazing thing about Barry Manilow is that his songs (with very few exceptions) have no beat. Try and tap your foot to any of his ballads; you can't do it!

Yeah, I think you have struck on something here. I'll have to pay attention to that next time. I've never been able to make up mind if the man is handsome or freaky looking either.

I didn't mention this before because I don't like admitting to it. The truth is, I used to hate it before I got a new sister (well, step-sister, actually - my mom got married last February). Now I just love Country Music. I don't get it. I used to be one of the people who took the lead in ridiculing "redneck music", but now it's one of my favorite things.

You know that mysterious messages are hidden in rock music that you can hear when you play the record backwards, right?

You know what you get when you play country music backwards?

You get back your wife, your house, your dog, your truck...

You know what you get when you play New age music backwards?

New age music. :smile:


New age music is another one of my guilty pleasures.

Yes, things like; He will give you 666, They sing because they live for Satan, etc.

I'd be happy just to have my pack of smokes back.

Do you listen to that 'Yawnni' fellow?

Yep. I listen to him on internet radio at work. Actually he has a couple that I rather like.

Oh my gosh, I like most of these (I don't care for Bob Dillon, but I respect his contribution to music).

Tom, I grew up at the beginning

of the Hip Hop era. Cutting and scratching records like Bongo Rock(Apache), Ride Sally Ride, Nautilus (Bob James), Give it up turn it loose (James Brown-remix), Dance to the Drummers Beat I liked those records and I would have been ostricized if my friends knew.

That's not funny :wink:. Actually, I drive a pickup but mostly I have Led Zeppelin, RATM, The Beatles or Pink Floyd coming from the truck.

But it looks odd for an Indian to be driving around in a pickup shooting guns in the air (although I've had Metallica's "Leper Messiah" and "Blitzkrieg" blaring out the window at one time and that was just to piss off the baseball team at the high school).

I agree. Their use of modal keys gives their music a myterious feel and someone in that group knows how to write a decent melody line. I think they are good musicians.
They are great musicians, I'll admit. I was listening to the Master of Puppets album recently and I was just amazed at the solemn tone of "Sanitarium", the aggression of "Leper Messiah" and the speed of "Master of Puppets".

Then I thought "man, this was the stuff that got me to pick up a guitar and start playing."

That's nothing to be ashamed of. Metallica is classic.
I don't know why, but I have this aversion openly admitting that I actually listen to Metallica (perhaps it's that jerk in my Linear Algebra class).

Heh, that reminds me of the time I was at school assembly and I had my guitar plugged in. I was supposed to play the alma mater but I broke out with that Master of Puppets intro. It was fun to see the shock on the faces of parents and teachers.

LOL.
Im with ya.

John Denver. Anything he sang (almost).

The guy was some kind of freakin celestial angel given his mortal geeky frame (as usual). I mean, some of it is so sublime, so unearthly, you have to wonder how many shrooms that fool swallowed in order to so totally comprehend the very nature of the everlasting stones themselves.

REM - Losing my Religion
