More like a weapon of mass distraction(from bin Laden), don't you think?

Anyhoo, a more musical signature, from Mudvayne...

Swedish death metal...hmmm.. Danzig?
I KNEW someone would say something about the Eagles... Technically, no. They're not. But they DO tend to have a lot of country-sounding elements in quite a lot of their music - like 'Peaceful, Easy Feeling', and ...aw, cr*p, several others that I, of course, cannot seem to think of right now... I do NOT like country, but I love most of the Eagles.

I also love Croce and Taylor. But how could I forget Tull? I still adore his 'Benefit' concert album. I'm a pretty big Ricki Lee Jones fan. Yikes! Phoebe Snow, Roberta Flack, Joni Mitchell (remember them?)

More:
Annie Lennox (with or without Eurythmics)
Stevie Nicks
Natalie Merchant (with or without 10,000 Maniacs)
The Pretenders
Peter Frampton
Sting (with or without the Police)
Journey
Ambrosia
- plus a bazillion others...

Some new age music is pretty nice, too. I'm especially fond of David Lanz. I also listen to a channel on our satellite dish called 'Soundscapes' that plays what it calls 'new age, atmospheric and world-positive music' whatever that means. It also plays music from all over the world - less now that it used to some months back, I'm sorry to say. It's quite soothing as background when I'm trying to force those LQG & ST concepts into my twisty-faced head.

Absolutely!! One of my favorite songs! Have you ever heard Annie Lennox do that song on her Medusa CD? I just love it!!

This can go on forever?...Tull-Thick as a Brick!
Genesis..WHO..Yes..Def Leppard..Barclay James Harvest..Todd Rundren(his great version of Star Trek Theme)..etc..etc.

Some time ago I listen to all my Bob Dylan Albums..from his first one to present day/most recent. I noticed through the sixties his style was constant, obviously how he came to be labeled 'poet'. the early seventies (New Morning)>> Blood on the Tracks seemed to be musically really 'perfection'. Eighties Bob Seemed to be Rushed/panicked by world events more than at any other time (sixties excluded) its my opinion that his music reflections of this decade were a mix n match, but nevertheless some great albums, looking forward I hope he still makes albums, fans want to know thoughts, transfered into music, this what connects people.

It is accepted that the very first comunication between Humans was made through sound, the recognition that a certain sound, say of a hollow log being hit with a solid stick or a hollow stick, produced the first musical meanings(warning tones-rejocing tones etc), which later developed into vocabulary language's.

I can say that the very first musical notes to make me wonder, was a song from the sixties, it opened up my senses to music and communication.

No, I haven't, but since our tastes are so similar, I probably should. :smile:

Exactly!!! Their music style changed radically and I just didn't care for it, they tried to be too commercial.

I think when i bought my first Iron Maiden album, my life changed. Nowadays there are a lot of blands which are definitive me...i am really into trashy rock bands like Guns N Roses, New York Dolls and Hanoi Rocks...but then they have influences from the Rolling Stones who are a massive favourite with me. Iron Maiden are real cool still!! ALSO when my mum bought me Marillion's greatest hits, i thought that was ultimate. there is no music that defines my life because my tastes vary too much and are very dependent on my mood.

Okay, Nimoy really did sing Bilbo, and Shatner really did put out an album, [I am thinking Christmas album...??? egad!] but I am quite sure that he never did a duet with Michio Kaku.

The music of Wolfgang Mozart defines my life: both his music and I are very intellectual.
