I couldn't help that last one... I love Harry Belafonte.

I love True Colors sung by Cindi Lauper... I know that Phil Collins wrote it, but it's sung so beautifully by her.

I just thought today was a good random and eclectic music day. I enjoy all kinds. Yes, even rap and R&B and heavy metal in all its forms, but I know my audience. jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

It's Black; it's White! Michael Jackson did his best to heal the rip in our society. God bless his soul. If the mention of a human soul gives blessing in Heaven, then he deserves the mention. This song, Black Or White, joined a great many of us together of all stripes and colors. As many began to see other 'tribes' for the first time in generations!

Thought we could stop and listen to that song again and remember the message. I LOVE Michael Jackson. As a kid, I swooned over him. He was my first crush. I still have a t-shirt with him on it from when I was 3 in perfect condition; it's in a shadow box with the two red 45s I have of his (Rock with You and The Girl is Mine duo with Paul McCartney). Could you imagine the music he'd be coming out with today with all that's going on? I miss him and his music.

I'm a Pop Country Music fan, although I do enjoy other types of music as well. The two types of music I don't like is Rap and Heavy Metal. This is one of my very favorite Pop Country songs...

Thanks for sharing! That's a good one too! We call that "rock-a-billy" music here in MI. Kid Rock started out as a rapper, but moved more into the "rock-a-billy" type in the last decade or so.

Yeah, I've heard it called that too. I like a lot of the old Country music as well. Some of the Country artists were really great. But, the newer stuff is not that great. They just don't have the same quality of music the older artists did. Most of today's music is just a Wash, Rinse and Repeat, with little story to the songs. Could be just me and my biased ear though. (grin)

Thanks for the fun article. It's a fun detraction from all the ugly stuff on the FP these days.

That's what I've been doing with all of my recent articles. There's a reason. jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

I'm not a big country music fan; I like maybe a handful. I don't count folk as country; so, John Denver doesn't count I don't think.

Very cool, Iggy. Once he gets done with the intro and gets down to the actual song, it is really great. Electric guitars are my favs. I played the Folk guitar, base fiddle, drums and piano in an all girl band in High School. I wanted to learn to play the electric guitar, but, real life got in the way of my having the time to dedicate to that dream, as it did for so many others at that time.

Thanks for sharing this great video. I did enjoy it. (smile)

AT 10:30, IN, he does The Chain, by Fleetwood Mac with a mandolin, pretty impressive dude, i saw him last August. He does simultaneous Drum and guitar solos' on some of his songs. Has a bass player and drummer, but also does a one man wrecking crew set. Old Bluesy bad asz rifs. Gives me hope for Generation XYZ

What skill I lacked in art I made up for in music. It wasn't until I got a computer and was able to digitally create artwork that I developed a good skill in creating Native American artwork, some of which I share here on NT in the Anishinaabe group and A Mac's Arts & Crafts group.

My Father and Brother had such great natural artistic talent and it did not get passed down to me. They took it for granted and never really appreciated the gift they had that I envied so much. Once I found I could create my artwork on the computer, even far greater than I had hoped, it was like a dream come true.

I do enjoy that one.  It used to be one of my mother's favorites - my brother learned how to play it on guitar for her.  When I hear it I remember the times in the kitchen when he used to play.  One of the few happy moments of my childhood.

My Brother played the Tenor Guitar, playing mostly Kingston Trio songs. When he joined the Navy he and two of his shipmates formed their own trio, with one playing the Ukulele and the other played the Electric guitar. They used to entertain the guys on board the ship now and then. They did very well until they were all 3 transferred to other ships at the same time. They were really bummed, as well as their other shipmates who enjoyed their music.

My Mother was a fantastic pianist and she taught me how to play the piano. My boyfriend at the time played the drums, so he taught me the basics and played along with me to show me how to get the rhythms down pat so I could follow along with the various songs. My Grandfather played the violin and taught me how to play that, as well as the guitar and base fiddle. His violin was a certified copy of the Stradivarius, and had the most beautiful sound as he played like a professional. His Great Uncle left it to him when he walked on, as he knew my Grandfather wanted to learn how to play it, and he had no children to leave it to.  

I had to give up the stringed instruments when I broke the little finger on my left hand (I'm right handed) so I was not able to play properly. jrSmiley_5_smiley_image.png

It truly is. When I could not play the strings any more I sold them, as having them with me only made it harder to deal with. So I had to do with the piano, drums. But, I looked on the bright side, at least I could still play them. (grin)

My Mother and I would harmonize on many of her songs she played. It was a lot of fun, and we spent quality time together as well. I so much miss those days now that she is no longer with me. But, I have so many great memories that it is like she is still here in a way.

I can play woodwinds, but nothing else... I have tiny stumpy fingers and they don't want to stretch for the chords on stringed instruments.

My daughter plays piano, guitar, woodwinds, Ukulele, and just about anything she tries, she gets the hang of immediately. I'm glad she has that talent. She's completely self-taught.

It is so funny how my taste in music has always been all over the place.  I love me some Beethoven, old rock, country (old stuff to the 90s), some heavy metal, some pop stuff and even some Glenn Miller.

For example:

Too much or too many?

I also enjoy a lot of the Big Band music. And many of the Classical music. Classical music for me is like a great painting by the Masters. They laid the ground work for others to follow and improve on. But, their basics still draw me to it.

Some of the other types of music I liked was Bob Denver, The Beach Boys, The Bee Gees, Mamas and Papas, and I love Caribbean music. The steelpan drums are are really great, and add so much to their music. Another I like is raggae.

Here is my favorite steelpan songs - "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by Dover Steel Drum Band

Most all of my old neighbors that I had a good rapport with have all moved out and new ones have moved in. But, they are not as open to being friendly. Maybe it has to do with the COVID-19 situation. We all have to wear makes here in the complex of 400+ units, so it is at this time not conducive to fostering close contacts. But when it comes to listening to my fav music, I make sure that I can hear it in the other room as well. (grin)

I am only 41 and in our house we have the following to play music on AND have the media to play:

A tabletop crank Victrola (plays 78s).

A console stereo / record player (45s and 33s) with built in speakers.

A receiver connected to a cassette tape deck, multi-CD player, and "old school" floor speakers (3 ft tall). We have over 700 CDs... I'm not repurchasing them all digitally. I put some of them on thumb drives so I can listen to them in my Fiesta and that's pretty nice.

All things Apple with music on them.

Amazon Prime with music, which can be played on our Alexa or PC.

And bluetooth speakers that all our phones can connect to and play music (even a waterproof one).

So we span the gamut of music media big time. I don't think too many people my age have a crank Victrola. jrSmiley_86_smiley_image.gif It's pretty awesome when the power goes out though... we still have entertainment. OH! And we have radios from the 20s that still work and only AM was ever a thing back then. Do you know how difficult it is to find TUBES for those things? I think the only thing we don't have is an 8 track player.

The Supaman is really a great song, as well as an awesome presentation of two of the super Native American dances, the Fancy Dance and the Jingle Dance. For those who are not familiar with these special dances, it is a way for them to become familiar with some of the Native American culture and traditions.

Redbone is also a great song. And there is much that can be learned from it as well. The dancer is truly great, very impressive. Love it!

I like both versions of "Hurt" but Trent Reznor said that Johnny owned that song and I don't know that Trent ever sung that song again even though it was originally his.

My taste in music is a bit heavier than most here.  Lately it's been things like King Diamond or some occasional Dropkick Murphys or Sick of it All even maybe occasionally some Baby Metal .

Or one of my ultimate favorites:

I like a lot of heavy metal. I went to Ozzfest 97 and met Powerman 500 (it was before they became big). I got to see a lot of bands there that now can't exist because of deaths to one or more people in the bands including Pantera and Type-O-Negative. Peter Steele had the most amazing voice and I was right there at the stage for them... not only am I extremely short, but he was extremely tall and on stage. Dimebag Darryl threw out a bunch of guitar picks and I got two of them. The only thing that might have made it better is if Vinnie Paul would've thrown a set of sticks and I get at least one. It was an amazing concert; I was pulled up on stage by Fear Factory.

My long time friend Holly got me into the Dropkick Murphys. So, trust me, you're not the only one that likes heavier music. jrSmiley_82_smiley_image.gif

The first time I truly fell in love, 'my love' (he did not love me back) introduced me to this song. So, it pains me to this day to look back on it. But in all good way. I know nearly all the words to every song on the cd. (Yes. I bought the cd and archived it for posterity.)

Yes Joanie, it did.

Back in the day when I lived in OZ, the land down under after a long work week we'd go to the outback and have a fire around a billabong, drinking Matilda Bay and playing a game of 2 up. In the background, the unofficial Australian anthem would be playing.  Nobody can do this song like Slim Dusty.

I love music but i never want to hear it anymore, I drive in silence. My son is a Musical Artist in the Metal genre, he has a studio he rehearses in but his girlfriend's band practices in my garage. Shh I think her band is cooler, lol.

All of their friends look like Daylight kills them and they play music all day long, Around Dinner My kid moves a 4X12 into our formal living room while his dog sleeps on the floor and practices guitar for hours. Sometimes he live streams the drummer in too and I hear drums in my head for days.

thankfully I am partially deaf in one ear.

I'm tuning out!

I just want silence and a normal life.

Type O Negative - Christian Woman

A giant man (6'8") that sadly died of a heart attack at only 48. Everyone that ever met him said he was the nicest guy and for YEARS he wouldn't tour because of his stage fright. I'm very glad and lucky that I was able to see them live at Ozzfest 97 at Pine Knob [now known as DTE Music Theater].
