I've been decluttering so I came across my collection of CD's and I have been listening to the few I'm keeping. At the moment I'm playing The Calling. The Cure are lined up for afterwards.:)

At this very moment, Ten. For the gazillionth time since 1992. And it never gets old. Never.

Macintosh Plus - Floral Shoppe

I can't help coming back to this album every few months. Convinced it will be a classic, but only in the music history sense... be prepared to hate it

In my head - the Mustache Song by Freddy Mercury (see the Mustache Levels thread here in Off Topic).

The Mozart of the twientieh century, Mike Oldfield.
He wrote some incredible music, at such an young age....Ommadawn, Incantations, Platinum, Crises, Tubular Bells ....in this moment I can'ge get enough of it, they are perfect for work.

Avenged Sevenfold - Hail to the King

Excellent guitar lick that underlies almost the whole song. I like the chord structure with the legato chorus vocals.

This reminds me a lot of the end to Acacia Strain's Angry Mob Justice, in a good way.

Saw them Friday when they opened for Better Than Ezra.  They were fantastic live.
And a journal because I #REF occasionally

I never heard of them before, but they just got themselves a new fan. Especially the acoustic and live videos on Youtube are great.

Yes! Their stuff on Youtube is amazing.

The band members were incredibly cool too, they stayed through BTE and chatted with us after the show.

I don't know if I'm just old or what...I've never heard of most of these artists. I have a 13 year old, so I've been listening to Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea, Katy Perry, etc. when I'm not listening to my favorite 70's station.

I like mainly classical music, mainly lyrical.

Medieval
Kings College Choir, various albums, medieval songs and Christmas carols.

16th century
Striggio, Ecce Beatum Lucem, a motet for 40 voices.
Perf. Huelgas Ensemble

Thomas Tallis, Spem in alium, a motet for 40 voices, inspired by the previous work. Better, IMHO
Perf. Tallis Scholars

17th and 18th century
Pachelbel, Canon in D, sometimes played at weddings, mentioned elsewhere.

Bach, sometimes known as the divine sewing machine. Brandenberg Concertos

19th century
Beethoven, most of his symphonies

Brahms, Second Piano Concerto

20th century
Vaughan Williams, Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis

Contemporary
Morten Lauridsen,
O Magnum Mysterium
Nocturnes iii, Sure on this shining night

Howard Shore, Lord of the Rings, 'The Twin Towers'
The Breaking of the Fellowship
Evenstar

 
These work can be sampled for two minutes on iTunes, and often are available on Youtube.
I first heard ‘spem in alium’ on my car radio, and was so entranced by it I had to stop by the side of the road. I was not fit to drive.
Kings College choir is one of the best choirs in the world, and has existed since the late fifteenth century.

Thank god I'm not the only one who doesn't really care for music. I mean, I listen to it sometimes for energy, but it's just background noise and if it were banned I wouldn't miss it. Phew, feels good to get that off my chest.

Anyway, I found my old ipod 15gb (yes, with the non-flash hard drive) and was listening The Hold Steady, which was like, the biggest thing in 2007 and I haven't heard of them again. I really like the lyrics on You Can Make Him Like You.

For classical music lovers, I've got Brahms' Symphony 2 4th mvt. Doesn't sound like your typical Brahms. Great thing to blast if you've got good speakers.

For just getting stuff done at work I'm listening to the Beasts of the Southern Wild soundtrack.

Yeah, it just doesn't do it for me.

I love silence, not noise.

But I think we're the rare exception, many people seem to like music a lot, and some really seem to need it.

What's with the killjoys coming into a music thread to say that they don't like music? Really?

Anyway, I'm loving "Far From any Road" by The Handsome Family. Released with little fanfare in 2003, it has gained a bigger audience because it was tabbed to be the title song for HBO's hit TRUE DETECTIVE.

This song has some amazing lyrics, like this bit:

When the last light warms the rocks
And the rattlesnakes unfold
Mountain cats will come
To drag away your bones

Anneke van Giersbergen - The Best Is Yet To Come

Seriously, this song is the fucking shiznittlesnap.

Some more Anneke for your ears:

Devin Townsend - Hyperdrive!
Ayreon - Valley of the Queens
The Gathering - Great Ocean Road
The Gathering - Strange Machines

List fails without "Eleanor."  I LOVE that song.

I've been listening to the song like a r-word for the past couple weeks.  Beware of the flying hair in the video:

I just saw in the comments that the lead singer for Rise Against is now a transgendered woman. I just heard an NPR segment about a new TV show about a transwoman, so that's pretty neat.
