Sitting here at this late hour going through some recent shoots I realize that I listen to music most days the whole time I am awake, from the time I hop out of bed until and even after the lights go out I have music on. Even when I shoot I am listening to music, at venues or when I am just shooting inanimate objects I have the head phones on, I have my Truck hooked up with an iPod adapter because nothing besides sex that is, is better than driving, shooting and listening to music.

I find my musical mood usually shadows the mood of my photography. If it is an aggressive sounding band or music my photos seem to reflect that, if I am in a melancholy mood the same. Sometimes it has it very schizophrenic moments also, well not really moments just a daily events. So I just thought I needed a break so thought I would start a post about what you listen to also.

The idea behind it is band, song title and any comments you have about the song if you do. I would hope to keep it cool, no well I like everything but, or everything sucks but, you get the gist of it. I have a very simple musical theory and it simplifies how I class my music, there is music I like, there is music I don't and part of the idea of the thread is stuff I have yet to hear.

I am one of the few people I know who still listens to vinyl, I listen to CD's, MP3's, etc also but like with a lot of things at my age, some things are just nostalgic. So to get the idea off the ground I will just post a group of random songs off todays music list.

Dandy Warhols - You Were the Last High (Pop,Alt Rock one of those bands I just enjoy)

Rage Against the Machine - Bullet in the Head ( I just absolutely love this band, astounding )

Bobby Darin - About a Quarter to Nine (A Huge Bobby Darin Fan, love most of his stuff)

Peter Tosh - Sinner Man (Rare record to actually own, the best song Tosh ever did, I like other music of his but this song to me is not the classic is should be)

Johnny Cash - Hurt (Cash and his music is very nostalgic, even the Rick Rubin Years sound like they just should have always been)

Frank Sinatra - It was a Very Good year (Absolute cool suave song)

lil Wayne - Prom Queen (His first "Rock" release, got a copy of the song only this morning)

lil Wayne ft Birdman - Stuntin Like My Daddy (Great Fast Paced Hard Rap)

Abd Al Malik - 12 septmebre (Very Political French Muslim Rap, not a single song he has done I do not enjoy)

X-Japan - Art of Life (Has to be the live version, this song has only been done only 3 or 4 times live, it is a 30 minute song. X-Japan is a Goth/Glam Heavy Metal Japanese band,they do a few songs in English, the Art of Life is sung only in English, I think the Drummer/Pianist (Yoshki) is phenomenal, and the Guitar Player Hide (Hyde sometimes, pronounced Heedae), who eventually went on to to do some very hard core J/Punk that I just thought was great died a few years ago)

Anyway I will just add a song here and there, and love to hear what everyone else listens to, always looking for new songs. And I will try not to ramble on about songs, I have an inordinate amount of useless musical knowledge and useless trivia, so I will try and not bore you all with it.

Iím a huge music fan, too. My tastes are eclectic, but I tend to listen to jam bands like Umphreyís McGee, Widespread Panic, and Phish. New Grass is also a favorite. I particularly like Nickel Creek, Chris Thile, Railroad Earth, and The Waybacks.

I have a little over 60gigs on my 80gig iPod Classic that stays in my truck and could easily fill it three or four times over with what Iíve ripped from the internet streams with a program called Station Ripper. It works flawlessly with iTunes. I have a couple 8gig Nanos for the walk abouts while shooting and such. I have so much music now, that I just stopped ripping. Iíll never be able to listen to all of it.

Anyway, good thread. If you need Mack the Knife by Bobby Darin, just let me know.

I too love music but don't listen to it as often as A.L.

I always seem to head back to music with great lyrics (Dylan, Cohen, Spears ;)) but I love all kinds of music.

I'm listening to more and more house,chill, trance, or electronica these days and i'm really getting into it. I LOVE music with a strong percussive beat.

Some of the people I'm listening to these days include Tiesto, Thievery Corporation, Claude Challe, Stťphane Pompougnac

A far less conventional type of music that I got into about 15 years ago is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. An amazing (now deceased) Pakistani singer, singing about mysticism with an ensemble of top musicians playing some ancient instruments...just awesome IMO. A while ago they used his music for the movie Natural born Killers and he was livid when he realized that some of the music was used in scenes that showed cold blooded murder.

I know all of you probably listen to something while editing and importing your pictures. Its another way to get to know one another in a different way outside of pictures. Anyways, I got the idea from another forum, and thought it would be a good idea here as well.


Led Zeppelin - Hey What Can I Do?

Anyways, back to the script. Was on youtube today checking out a few sports videos. Searched sportscenter and got this. Video is kind of cool but nothing amazing.

Acadie, you might want to check it out if your into Wayne. Its the first time Ive heard this. Its really not too bad, Wayne is a genious when he wants to be. An idiot at other times though. Yeah, here is what I was listening/watching.

I listen to all music from hard core 90's gangster rap to classic piano jazz to hardcore face melting metal. Also, while I am shooting it depends. I listen to music constantly and it changes with mood and I generally change within days. Last week was Easy-E, 2-Live Crew and N.W.A.. This week it is Gaslight Anthem, Social Distortion, Bad Religion and a few others. I think I am going to do Bob Marley and Peter Tosh all next week. Getting to the time of year where reggae is always in the rotation.

I still have vinyl. I also still have my old Technique turntables. I used to be a rave/club DJ :party:

Hmmm..I like all kinds of music. All depends on what I'm doing.

Pop/rock for walks out for photos. Dance/pumping music for working out. And anything really if I'm by the computer.

Right now I got Limp Bizkit on... but that should change next song..gotta love shuffle :)

When I'm shooting I don't listen to any music because it's sometimes what I hear around me that leads me to the next shot, I shoot a lot of birds and wildlife. When I'm in the darkroom It is usually Spa, Classical or film and fantasy soundtracks. Just goofin off is rock time. Just killed my Sirius radio with a hammer because it was forever dropping out so now it's back to Shoutcast:D

Country, Rock n Roll (50's and 60's), and a whole mixture of other stuff like Eagles, Creedance, Cold Chisel, and I enjoy the odd modern hit as they come along but can't say too much in the way of modern stuff excites me these days.
Most of the time I listen to podcasts of either Marko here or Chris (the worlds greatest rambler but an incessant podcaster) Marquardt as the only time I listen to anyhting like music or podcasts is in the van on the way and from work.

Just up finishing one of my websites thats been half done for a while now but with the summer concert season coming up and me wanting to more media passes this year just thought it a good idea I at least make it look sort of finished. So I needed a break and thought I would post some tunes. All radio is evil, the thought of someone else choosing my music playlist is unconscionable.

Smokey Robinson/Conway Twitty - Rainy Night In Georgia

Interpol - Obstacle 1

Harry Chapin - Taxi (Just a classic for us old folks)

Zep was one of my favorites in the Ď70ís and Ď80ís. I always liked ďThe Rain SongĒ, too. "Hats off to Roy Harper" and ďSince Iíve Been Loving YouĒ still blow me away. To me, III was their best offering.

But my all time favorite was the B side of ďThe Immigrant SongĒ. I donít think it ever made it on any of their albums unless it finally got included in a compilation along the way.

Zeppelin has always been on the top of my favorites list, next to the Beatles. I like just about everything Zeppelin has done, not quite the same for the Beatles, but its all good music to me. I really got into Zeppelin when I was acting like it was 70's! :D It was always fun to be on the same level they were on when listening to the music.:eek: Now back to the real world, its still awesome stuff.

For those of you in the US, if you've not heard of it already, may I suggest Pandora internet radio? It's not available outside the US anymore .....:confused: due to licensing restrictions but when it was I used to listen to it often. If you put in the name of an artist, it will generate other artists of similar styles and genres.....very cool!

Tempted- Squeeze

Anything from Crowded House

Well right now I am just going through 11 CD's that various bands or promoters have given me in the last 3 weeks. Seems when I do a shoot for one band other bands give me a CD and business card so I can listen to them and see if I would be interested in Photographing them. On top of other CD'S I have been given over the past year I am up to 93 CD's since just last September. Nice perks I must admit since I am such a music whore.

This weekend I watched a musician change the most hated request into something magical...Happy Birthday to You. Oliver is a young sax player with talent pouring out of his soul, he took the piece and weaved a tapestry of notes that held everyone's attention. Nothing beats live music with creative musicians, I have enjoyed all types of music and I must agree with B. B. King when asked what music does he listen to and his reply was "good music". The only music that I cannot listen to is the oriental singing with that high pitched sharp vocals, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. Some others I can only take in small doses, but if it is good I give it a listen.

To me music and photography are somewhat intertwined, one is visual that is based on words and music and the other is based on what we see. One inspires the other for me, it can go either way, a song can make me think up of an image or set of images the other the image invokes a song. I am in talks with a Toronto musician that put out a song I just love from the early 80's about taking the original song and making a video from still images to portray the story. I would be working with another photographer on it, she wants to do some collaborative work with me on a couple of projects. So if I can rights to use the song, would be cool if not I have other options. As many here know I also do a lot of band photos and am never shooting or editing without tunes playing. They are inseparable to me.

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain , this has to be one of the best most beautiful guitar pieces ever. George Clinton produced this and Eddie Hazel plays guitar on this piece. From what I recall the story is that both George and Eddie were on some very good acid and the beginning of the song George asked eddie to play like he had heard his mother just died and the second part he just found out his mother was alive. Here is a youtube version, just the album cover with the song, needs no video anyway. I still own the original vinyl version of this and a CD version. The song runs 9:51 and is just a masterpiece.

Kenny Vance and the Planotones

If you're interested in the sounds of original rock n roll ... listen to this clip for the 1st 1min 10 secs before deciding to turn it off ... and remember that this guy is well into his 60's now ... what a voice!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ke1dV_IpSKA


From Wikipaedia ...
Kenny Vance (born December 9, 1943 in New York City as Kenny Rosenberg) is an American singer and music producer who was an original member of Jay and the Americans.

Vance has worked on a number of movies and TV productions. He was music supervisor on the films Animal House and Eddie and the Cruisers, where he brought in John Cafferty to perform on the soundtrack. For the movie Looking for an Echo, he composed the original score and was the singing voice of Armand Assante. He also was the music supervisor for the movie American Hot Wax with Jay Leno. Kenny acted and sang as himself in the movie.

In 1977, Vance was a guest singer on Saturday Night Live and became their musical director in 1980, where he was responsible for booking the musical guests. He booked Aretha Franklin and Prince, as well as James Brown, who on his only appearance on the show, performed for far longer than his allotted time, forcing the producers to go to a commercial while he was still singing.

Since 1992, he has performed with his group Kenny Vance and The Planotones.

Some samples of Kenny's latest album ...

And this young kid ... Sungha Yung ... a Korean boy who plays Fingerstyle guitar.

Because notes are struck by individual digits rather than the hand working as a single unit, fingerstyle playing allows the guitarist to perform several musical elements simultaneously. One definition of the technique has been put forward by the Toronto (Canada) Fingerstyle Guitar Association:

Physically, ďFingerstyleĒ refers to using each of the right hand fingers independently in order to play the multiple parts of a musical arrangement that would normally be played by several band members. Bass, harmonic accompaniment, melody, and percussion can all be played simultaneously when playing Fingerstyle.

Sungha Yung is so well thought of in Fingerstyle circles he has played with legends of the style such as Eric Clapton.

Have a quick listen ... and that REALLY IS just him ... no others instruments or dubbing done.

That video has a bunch of clips from the Mecca for DJ's, the Isles Ibiza in Spain. Went there a couple yrs back. It blew my freakin mind. 7 days I went with no sleep to remember, I didn't want to miss out. 24/7 the clubs go. Off the hook. We've worked some big rooms here, L.A., Vegas etc. 500 to a 1000 peole. Club Amnesia on Ibiza holds 10,000. It's FULL every night. Met my DJ idol, Armin Van Buuren there after his set one night. We got to sit with him, bottle service at the Masters Table so to speak.

Prefer the track only version that we toss down. It was insane last night when we dropped in on the floor, 400 people on the floor doing completely nuckin futs. I wish I'd made it to the concert last weekend, unfortunately, making money came first that night. Sold my tix with my backstage pass for five bills and spun the night away in my own little world battling with Chrome...
Acadie - That German hip hop song is pretty sweet, I'm going to have to get Dimples to listen to it later. She just moved here from Berlin about a year ago. She's probably familiar with it. Sounds really good. That kind of stuff, other than lounge house music that I like to listen to while doing stuff around the house.

Unfortunately I don't get back to my roots enough of old school hip hop and Gangsta rap. Thats what I grew up on and always listened to and inspired me to start dj'ing back then. 18 yrs, I still have my first set of turntables and my first pair of headphones.

Found myself cruising on the highway the other day with Boston cranked at about 110db in my car. That was pretty sweet.

That's the range of my music. Just no new country.

Indie Quebec Rockers DJ Champion have a nice heavy straight ahead loud rock sound. 4 Guitar Players, One Bassist, One Vocalist (with backing vocals by other band members) and no drummer but the use a drum machine is done so well unless you see the video you would not even know they did not employ the use of a drummer.

WTG, he should enjoy them they put on a great show. Never too young to expose them to music live. Not sure if you brought him to a concert before but if you haven't just make sure you bring ear plugs for him just incase it is too loud and Billy Talent like to play very loud. Just something I say to all parents I know who are taking their kids to their first concert and until they hit 15 or 16 think it is a good idea to have them on hand. I always bring a few pairs with me although I never use them I have given them out to parents who have not thought or forgot to bring some.

Yah Samael is ancient (lol). And I think the northerners are mostly black metal guys...death metal being more of a Florida-origin thing (Chuck S and Death). I'm not a bm or a dm lover, I'm a doom/stoner metalhead mostly, with roots in thrash, BHM and NWOBHM.

First time I saw Ministry was in Chicago at Wax Trax Records and they were recording, what I don't recall but I still have the patch that was cut out of the tshirt after it fell apart that I was given, I had just started my recording studio and was doing some engineering work for Wax Trax just minor stuff but was the first label to use me for anything. I tend to lean toward the Norwegian Metal then the American scene although I do find some phenomenal bands out of the States. I like In Flames, Celtic Frost, Asphyx, etc. Then I listen to pretty much most genres of music, not one or the other, but I was Hard Core gutter punk growing up, Dayglo Abortions, Battered Wives, DOA, Black Flag, etc.

ABD AL MALIK - 12 Septembre 2001 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB0EREiCC08)

I am a huge lover of French R&B/Hip Hop/Rap Soul, etc. This is one of those songs that I find why my attraction to French Rap is usually the passion and the topic, they have their wanna be "Gagsta's" but so much more of it is political and social. This song is just about a Muslim who was doing nothing Setermbre 11 2001, but as of Septembre 12 he was a gultly as those who flew the planes into the buildings and yet they get they blame. 1+ billion Muslims get blamed for the actions of maybe a few dozen.

English Lyrics: Its a R&B flow, so excuse the lack of structure.

I began to rap before 9/11 My flow was already crazy when World Trade Center disappeared I was really shocked and I swear That if my faith wasnt so strong I would be ashamed to be Muslim After that, we had to show the rest of the world That we were only men That even though some of us are crazy, the majority doesnt mix up politics with religion I began to rap before 9/11 My flow was already crazy when World Trade Center disappeared After 9/11, we were being accused They asked themselves maybe they are all terrorists? Cannons began to destroy Bagdad, people died in Spain Our leaders began to complain And Switzerland, in a TV show, mixed up politics with religion I began to rap before 9/11 My flow was already crazy when World Trade Center disappeared After that, I discovered suspicion Suspicion is when someone is afraid And the others dont try to help him feel better Its when the one you were supposed to know becomes the one you dont know The Netherlands murdered a child of a famous artist France continued to say No Europe has split into 2 parts: those Those and the others who didnt want to mix up politics with religion I began to rap before 9/11 My flow was already crazy when World Trade Center disappeared This September 2001 I was convinced That nothing will be like before any more In a way, it was wonderful: the bean left the rye grass forever And I began to preach for peace So that all the people would consider themselves Humans Humans which, of course, wont mix up politics with religion We were going to deconstruct everything Deconstruct with three D as Deleuze, Derrida and Debrť Neither fundamentalists nor extremists of the Islam or of the Laicisms But all these explanations begin to be boring Too complicated anyway And to speak about me, I can say you that I dont mix up politics with religion By the way, in the same month and the one that came after the new album of Jay-Z : Blueprint had been released. A masterpiece Also the 1st album of Wallen : ŗ force de vivre. My wife who says no. And the book by Jonathan Frenzen : The Corrections had been published And me who did almost nothing, just working hard at home Like someone who is changing the nappy of his little boy

Helena - Misfits Lyrics

If I cut off your arms and cut off
your legs Would you still love me
anyway?
If you're bound and
you're gagged, draped and
displayed Would you still love me
anyway?
Cutting with the knife
blood is spilling everywhere She
will be my wife Secondary spine,
incisions must be accrute I know
just what to do My hands are
trembing I can't spare to slip up
with this knife Her beauty so
illogical The beast come gliding in
Hideous chameleon stripped down to her skin
Dance to the burning
flame Pleasure exhumes the pain
The night bursts into flames Dance
Helena Dance If I cut off your
arms and I cut off your legs would
you still love me anyway? There's
a spot on the floor where your
limbs used to be and I close the
door on my Fantasies Why don't
you love me anyway? Helena!

Joe Strummer had a totally unique thing going with the Mescaleros. No wanking guitar centric yadda yadda (and I'm a guitar player). He was writing songs. To my ear the Mescaleros thing was completely original (but not without reference to the roots) and highly listenable.

Eleven members in the band and everyone of them awesome in some way and allowed to show case their talent. Derek Trucks is one of most unassuming stage presences you will ever see but you can not help but be mesmerized by his mastery of the slide guitar. Susan Tedeschi has a blues voice not heard since Janis Joplin. A Youtube video does not do justice to the power in her voice or the incredible instrumentation of the band.

So. Wow! Just Wow. One of the best live performances I have seen in awhile.

One of the wonderful thing about the internet is that I get to listen to what I really like despite the influences of TV, magazines, etc.
I hardly listen to contemporary music (there are few exceptions).
I'm listening to Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The Moon (one of the best albums ever)

Birds of Tokyo.

This Aussie alternative rock band has achieved quite a bit of commercial success in the past couple of years, but I dont think they are very well known internationally (please correct me if I am wrong)

This track is a bit of an "ear worm" that gets stuck in the head
