A thread about music, not specific music, just about music

Post  Lesley Niyori on Fri May 25, 2018 8:09 pm

Hi all, this is me babbling about music.

I used to like a range of music for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons make more sense now that I know I was never him, but instead me, a girl.

I've always liked clearly 'girlie' music. Oh, come on you know what I mean by girlie music too. Sappy, romantic lyrics. Lovy dovy stuff. Guys singing about the girls they love, girls singing about the guys they love. Yeah, I'm understandably talking about clearly hetero content here. I'm hetero. I heard some very lesbianish material in the past (usually anime music video material).

I've in recent times become totally obsessed with the seemingly girl empowerment lyrics of the music used in the US version of Precure known as Glitterforce (anime on Netflix).

I'm Celtic too, so yeah, I love listening to Enya and anything with Scottish bagpipes.

And not surprisingly, I have a big fan thing going for Kim Petras.
I'll include a link to her most recent insta hit music video.

I have only one prerequisite for my music. Uplifting, positive, pleasant, cheery.
Take your (c)rap and cram it Smile
Take your depressing country and cram it.
Take almost all of your screaming loud metal and cram it. I SAID CRAM IT! was that loud enough? I make allowances for Baby Metal Smile
No, I don't really care for Christian music. Everyone has limits to their preferences. There's positive, and then there's flaky fan obsessed fawning sycophantic sounding. Praise praise praise him, oh please shut up Smile

I used to listen to rock and pop from the 60's, 70's, 80's.... And I still like that stuff.

I've kinda gone beyond that now. I still love musicals, and Disney songs.

But I'd rather listen to easy listening, jazz, and a wee bit of classical.....

EDM, Alternative, Punk, and Pop

Throw in some random scattering of other influences in music.

I am a child of the '60s, and the '70s and I do remember both decades (despite what the herb says) and my favorite songs are from those decades.

Dylan, S&G, the Airplane, Rose, Buffalo Springfield, Heart just about any of the British Blues guys... the list is endless and makes for a month-long listening list.

I do not understand rap or care for the boys bands... and I am just fine listening to Neil Young and his whiny voice.

I am also very, very keen on Beethoven, Symphonies 1 through 9 and his Lenore Overture. His, the Brahms and Tschaikovsky violin concertos also make my list of music to listen to for solace and enjoyment.

Airplane/Starship are a favourite of mine too, Grace Slick is one of my many heroines. I'm a country girl and love country and folk music. I also like the sixties and early seventies sounds.

I can take a little classical, Bizet's Carmen is a personal favourite.

Can't stand jazz and I really cannot listen to rap, soul, syrupy motown or these funny bass sounds whatever they are, repetitive club or modern music.

Gospel, Ska and reggae I can listen to. Everyone is different. Celia xx

@papillon do go on! What are your favourite metal bands?

@celia as far as rap/hiphop go you should check out Aesop Rock. I am generally not a fan of the genre, but he is amazing. Here is a song he wrote about his pet cat (The entire Impossible Kid album is amazing and worth a listen): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T_KKiQiolk

As I put a reggae song on earlier on Marie's '78 what am I doin' now post, I thought I'd put this on coz it's called Marie! 

I quite like Ska from the early days, I looked up a few I used to shake my liccle bum and dance to, in my bedroom back in my teens. And it's one I loved lots when Dinosaur roamed the Earth!... oh the memories!!!!

A nice ballad by an accomplished balladeer.

It somehow reminds me of some of the early ballads by Dylan. 'Rainy Day Women #12 & 35' and 'Tangled Up In Blue' come to mind!

Kim Petras is a musical genius and a true god of music. If only I could get her to be my girlfriend then I would finally be a happy person.

I don't particularly care for that song of her's you posted though. The vast majority of music is bad but with a couple songs I like. For instance I only like a few David Bowie songs.

Well, it's late here now and I've been listening to this over a small glass of wine. It's part of me, when I was young these guys were big in the UK too. This was relevant to me when I was young, not from the late, great RVZs angle....I was more the subject of the lyrics.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7p2ogicS1U&list=PL9HwFGlucX9yl_6hz3hGRZPKnFfbsu1xD&index=2

And while I just pour myself a very small second glass, Miki!, without getting stoned or anything! Here is something beautiful you may remember from the old music thread!

Hi everyone!

Well Lesley, that's coz I like all kinds of good music, not just the stuff pumped out by modern media, relying upon advertising and peer pressure as it's sell point.... so yes, it does not have to be 2018's latest, I know you agree, my sweet friend.

Anyway. I came off nights and slept til 3.30 tis afternoon and then it was my whist drive tonight, so I was in no mood for an early night. It's 1 a.m now and I'm still wide awake. I have just been sniffling, no I have been shedding rivers, to Old Tom, my Mother was born on Primrose day....

Old Tom was an Irish singer of the 70's and 80's. He recanted mostly very sad songs, ya have to listen to the words. Here are a few that only a heartless woman could not cry or feel a little emotion to....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cnrox8wLdC8

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqbd8tVz3z4 ''neath yon Willow, lies my gentle Mother's love'.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWfhjSTz_J8

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N8wjytwLgI

No..... my Mother is still alive, but she is not well, I will see her tomorrow and take her flowers, I missed out on thirty years and more of her.... I am so glad I have reconciled with her! Now I shall sleep...

There was an episode with my Mother today I'd just settled down around 4.30 when the phone rang, it was her Senior's home, she'd been whisked off to hospital again....

So I drove to the one she was sent to near her home, not mine, and spent a few hours there with her as she underwent another ecg, blood test and xray only for the Dr to confirm what I knew, there was nothing wrong. I spoke to the Dr for quite a while about her and her different problems, mostly caused by constipation and the hot days we are suffering recently. She always seems to think there is something worse wrong with her.

We both agreed, there was little to do, 'Cry wolf' don't apply in our game, especially with elderly and very young the home was quite right, they come in regardless, however inconvenient. Well, just pleased that I knew she was OK, from the very moment I saw her, she told me it was her foot operation that was causing it all!!!!!!


Anyway, I got home and continued watching Anne With An 'E' on Netflix and I heard the strains of a song I had not heard for many years. Yes, it was my beloved Planxty and The Lakes of Pontchartrain that I had recognised it from. A holartic and very old tune, at least 18th century, with many different lyrics, clearly this version is the American one, but their are English, Canadian, French and American variants.

This is a very sad balled sung by the Irish Group of folksingers Planxty.

The song  The Lakes of Pontchartrain is, according to Wikipedia:
The exact origin of the song is unknown, though it is commonly held to have originated in the southern United States in the 19th century. The liner notes accompanying Planxty's version state that the tune was probably brought back by soldiers fighting for the British or French armies in Louisiana and Canada in the War of 1812. Although the tune might date to that period, the popular lyrics undoubtedly came much later, since they tell of taking a railway train from New Orleans to Jackson Town. This was most likely to be the railway junction town of Jackson, Mississippi (named in honor of General Andrew Jackson), the capital of Mississippi. The line would have been the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railway—whose line, opened before the Civil War, included a pre-existing local line running north from downtown New Orleans along the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. Most likely, the lyrics date to the Civil War, and the reference to "foreign money" being "no good" could refer to either U.S. or Confederate currency, depending upon who was in control of the area at the time. It should also be noted that thousands of banks, during the civil war, issued their own bank notes, which could be rejected in various towns, depending on how trusted were the issuing bank. Also, the Confederacy and Union issued their own bank notes—as did individual States—leading to a proliferation of currency (notes and coinage) that might not be acceptable in a particular region. The reference to alligators may be a mondegreen, in that alligators are not usually found in the woods but rather near or in water. The reference may be to the native Atakapa tribe who lived in southwestern Louisiana and were, probably incorrectly, said to be cannibals, hence the line in the song, "if it weren't for the alligators/Atakapans, I'd sleep out in the woods."
The traditional tune is a version of that also commonly used for the folk song Lily of the West.
Can't let you take everything back!
