What Are You Listening To Right Now?

Me: "Lebanese Blonde" by Thievery Corporation. The five before that: "Indian Summer" by Chris Botti, "Seasons" by The Bobby Hughes Experience, "Memphis Underground" by Herbie Mann, "Get Up And Get Down" by The Dramatics, "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes.

You?

Running through the YouTube war links over at Atrios, et al., and laughing myself silly. Some of the music's okay, but OMG the clothes!

Not so long ago, I went to a showing of "Labyrinth" at the Brattle Theatre near Harvard U. and couldn't figure out why the kids were in hysterics--after all, I grew up with David Bowie and that was just what he was into at the time. I wanted to remind them that their kids will be making fun of their faded tatoos before too long.

If I weren't running bad videos, I'd be listening to opera. East Village Opera company actually sparked me to go buy the real thing.

For some reason I have had the urge to listen to nothing but Big Country and Judy Henske for a week now.

The Music of Kurt Weill by various artists including Nick Cave, Elvis Costello, The Persuasions; Bertolt Brecht does Mack the Knife in the original German, and the incomparable Lou Reed does an absolute hatchet job on September Song.

Whole Lotta Rosie by AC/DC. In fact, the whole If you want blood album, amazing boogie rock.

The Thievery Corp. tune and Isaac Hayes' version of "Walk On By" are stellar choices. Me? Something newish, "Monkey" by Low; something older, "Love Songs on the Radio" by Mojave 3; and a cover of "The Old Laughing Lady" by Thea Gilmore.

I have gone back to high school - and have been listening to 80's music. (hanging my head) But on a less geeky note, I am in love with the Katrina relief album "Our New Orleans" (Allan Toussaint's "Tipitina & Me" and Beausoleil's "L'Ouragon" make me which I could play a musical instrument) and quite like Springsteen's "The Seeger Sessions"

Before "Jackie Wilson" - Elvis Presley: King of Rock 'n Roll: The 50's Complete Masters Disc, "The Very Best of Dusty Sprongfield" and "The Weavers Live at Carnegie Hall".

Load sixteen tons, what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt!

Just finished listening to the newly released Robert Ashley's Foreign Experiences, composed back in the early 1990s I think

& the five before that were:
Ellen Fullman's Long String Instrument with Kronos Quartet: Stratified Bands (unreleased)
Carl Stone: Shibucho (also unreleased)
Pauline Oliveros: Beauty of Sorrow
Tibor Szemzo: Tractatus
Tom Ze & Gilberto Assis: Sanaugustin

Just in case you thought your readers only listened to pop and folk musics

Humph...Add the Dixie Hummingbirds and the Big Band Anthology to my list.

Tiny Bradshaw's "Darktown Strutter's Ball" and Louie Armstrong's "You Rascal You" are guaranteed to make just about anyone smile!

I realize why people in the Red states fear/loathe "blue staters." I was telling my illegally wedded same-sex spouse that we were listening to a song called "Lebanese Blonde by Thievery Corporation" and his reply was "That's hash--Lebanese Blonde is really good hash. I was just talking about hash this week with someone from work..."

Me, I've been listening to Howe Gelbe, Sara Vaughan, Gillian Welch...and really digging Ennio Morricone's Il Buono, Il brutto, Il Cattivo.

Silence. I live for these moments of silence. This is the best music for my mind.
