If you notrice, Roberts thread had quickly become a random compilation of all different kinds of things that were already gone over (except without the youtube product) several times.
I, like Rock head) cant come up with a 5 favorites. My taste in music is more like , I can give you the five peices I listened to TODAY, but that is subject to extreme change motivation on another given day.
Today I listened to (Not sure of all the titles since Im in another room)
Ray Charles "Fathead Album"
Quincy Jones "covers "
The Chieftans "Boil the breakfast slowly"
Gorecki "Symphony 3"
E street band (In honor of SPringsteen in town this weekend)
PAul SImons musical "The Umbrella man murders
Tomorrow may be all blugrass or all Bach, I never have a plan or a favorite. Too much good music. I could probably do a leat favorite music in several catagories.
eg I love good classic country music. I HATE all this sound alike crap being pooped out by these "Big HAt" country singers.
I love the words of Brad Paisley songs but his music SOUNDS ALL THE SAME, ever notice how all his notes and timings are of only 3 unique forms?
Gimme Willey or Johny Cash or Allison Kraus, and Ill listen. Give me Bach, but not Satie. I find Wagnerian operas UNLISTENABLE.
PAssions are best expressed when we DONT enjoy something.
Its like painting, I can muse all day in a good collection of art ( as eclectic as you can make it) BUT , I can be brought to nausea by Pre RAphealites, many of the Acadmie painters of 19th century France , and works of the FAuve.
Sorry but I hadda explain my train of thought why I dont have a "favorite 5" unless you limit it for "This week" or "Today".That way, next week, I could let you know what got my fancy at that later time. SOrt of like your "WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU JUST READ?"
