On a musical note:

On a musical note:

The shit has been flying fast and furiously of late so I thought it would be a good time to lighten things up a bit.

Music always seems to bring us together and I've seen a couple of 'favorites' seeds here before. But I want to change it up a bit by citing genres.

Post your #1 tune from each genre.

If you want to add a genre, go ahead BUT only one tune per genre please, if you're like me, you're gotta have an internal debate.

At the end, I'm adding my #1 male and female singers of my time and that is a goodly while.

So I'll go first and I hope everyone will chime in.

Blues
Billy Holiday,. Strange Fruit.

Country
Glen Campbell, Gentle on my mind

Folk
If I had a hammer, Peter, Paul and Mary

Hip Hop
Coolio, Gangster Paradise.

Jazz
The in crowd, Ramsey Lewis [Yes I AM that old]

Pop
A day in the life, The Beatles.

Soul
Marvin Gaye, I heard it though the grape vine,

Rock
Kashmir, Led Zeppelin

Male
Duh Robert Plant

Female
Barbara Streisand, ya I know, shut up.

Now don't give me or anyone else any shit about mixing genres. We're good as long as each of us posts on choice for each.

Another genre-- gospel!

I'm not a big fan of religion, but I do like gospel.

1. "White Gospel"-- many great artists, I like Elvis' gospel amongst others:

2. "Black Gospel;"-- again, many fine artists to choose from. Mahalia Jackson is one of my favourites:

I look at it as there being several types of blues. I like most of them, including the one you mentioned.

I also like what I think of as"the real 'hard-core' blues"-- Mississippi Delta Blues. Here's one of the best by one of the best artists, IMO. Muy authentico! (This sort of thing is "acquired taste"--I'm sure many folks won't like this):

Robert Johnson, Crossroads

I still have a hell of a time posting video.

Its not all that difficult once you get the hang of it:

1. In the empty box for posting a comment (or a reply) look at the top menu bar. All the way to the right, (just before the smiley icon) there's a square with columns on each side with black "dots" and a right pointing triangle in the middle.  That's supposed to represent a strip or 35mm film. The dots represent the sprocket holes in the film, the right triangle represents the "play" button.It represents the icon for posting media-- in this case a youtube video.

2. Click on that icon. A window opens up-- on top it says: Embed Local Media" That's what you want. *its not just linking to a video-- its for embeded one-- which means you'll be able to see a picture from the video in the comment box when you're finished).

3. In the "Embed Local Media" box, there are several tabs near the top. Click on the one that says "YouTube". Then directly below the tabs there is a Search box-- ignore that.

4. Directly under that there's a long horizontal box, Inside, to the left,it says: Youtube ID or URL... Copy the URL address ( https://www.youtube.com followed by other stuff.) of the video from its page on YouTube. (In Windows, block the address with your mouse then hit Ctrl + C. to copy it. I haven't used a MAC in a while, I forget how to use that to copy).

5. After you copied the URL from the youtube page, click on the long box and paste the url into it. 

6. Then click "embed this media" and voila!

8.1.2  Krishna  replied to  Ender @8.1    6 months ago

I believe "Oh Freedom" is what was originally referred to as an "Old Negro Spiritual". Some of these were sung during the Civil Rights era in the 60s-- sometimes with the words slightly modified to fit the specific situation.

Most people not familiar with the songs of the Civil Rights era are mainly familiar with only one song-- We Shall Overcome. But there were many others.

IIRC, a few were written specifically for the Civil Rights Movement-- but many came from one of two prior sources-- the American labour movement, and/or old gospel songs.

For example, "We Shall Not Be Moved" had the words changed to fit the occasion:

I believe before it was a Civil Rights song it was a Union (Labour Movement) song. And before that a spiritual (gospel song).

In fact the first time I heard We Shall Not Be Moved, these were the words:

Church of Christ is my church, I shall not be moved,

Church of Christ is my church, I shall not be moved,

Just like a tree that's standing by the water,

I shall not be moved.

I was actively involved in the Civil Rights movement in the South in the early 60s so I am very familiar with many of these Civil Rights songs).

Those are amongst my favourites as well!

Dylan was perhaps my all time favourite. 

I also was a big fan of one of his contemporaries-- not quite as famous, but very versatile. Dave van Ronk:

(The original of this song is usually attributed to Rev. Gary Davis, but some say it goes back much further. Also these versions come to mind: some excellent versions by, among others Townes van Zandt, Dylan, Mississippi John Hurt-- even Keith Richards. (I like them all).

There's an easy way to put YouTube videos in a comment like this one.

First you need to have two windows open.  One is this one and the other is where the YouTube video is.

Put your cursor in the address bar where the https is.  Don't move your cursor but left click one time.  It will turn blue.  Leaving your cursor still in the address bar, right click once and choose 'copy'.

Then come back to your comment box and left click once and then right click once. Choose 'paste'.

Then all you have to do is 'Post your Comment'

One thing I like about doing it that way is you'll notice the YouTube video is much smaller on the screen as mine is above.

A new category...??? Humour (or perhaps Commercia'ls with great music?) 

Here's a video that has been credited with introducing the world to Rap:

From Wikipedia:

"Rapper's Delight" is a 1979 hip hop track by the Sugarhill Gang and produced by Sylvia Robinson. While it was not the first single to include rapping, "Rapper's Delight" is credited for introducing hip hop music to a wide audience. It was a prototype for various types of rap music, incorporating themes such as boasting, dance, honesty and sex, with the charisma and enthusiasm of James Brown. The track interpolates[2] Chic's "Good Times", resulting in band members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwardssuing Sugar Hill Records for copyright infringement; a settlement was reached that gave the two songwriter credits.

"Rapper's Delight" is number 251 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and number 2 on VH1's 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs. It is also included in NPR's list of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century. It was preserved into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2011.[3] Songs on the National Recording Registry are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."[4]

Posted here by way of introducing the video in the next comment-- which might be categorized as "Musical Humour"...?

Nobody mentioned disco. 

In the 70's it seems all my fiends be placed in one of two categories: those that were into Rock *& hated Disco!) & those into Disco who really didn't like Rock! It was almost like fans of two rivals sports teams-- or people with opposing political views.

The were a few rare exceptions-- people who really liked both (I was one of those).

Again, its impossible for me to pick a favourite Disco record.  IMO he best came out in 1979. 

Being the rebellious type that I am, I may post more than just one favourite here. (I like just about every one in Saturday Night Fever. Most of Donna Summer. Village People). I googled top Disco hits of 1979 to jar my memory. Here are a few of the best, IMO:


GLORIA GAYNOR - I Will Survive
VILLAGE PEOPLE - YMCA
SISTER SLEDGE - We Are Family
DONNA SUMMER - Bad Girls
CHIC - Good Times
DONNA SUMMER - Hot Stuff
SUGARHILL GANG - Rapper's Delight
ANITA WARD - Ring My Bell

G.Q. - I Do Love You
FRANCE JOLI - Come To Me
KISS - I Was Made For Loving You
DONNA SUMMER - Sunset People
LEIF GARRETT - I Was Made For Dancing
SYLVESTER - You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)

I guess because those songs are so "old"...not part of the current craze (Whatecer that might be). Sort of like listening to the music your grandmother liked-- or the clothes, home- furnishings, etc of that era.

I like the old stuff as well as the new stuff. Occasionally I listen to Disco-- especially good when I have some unpleasant work to do. (And Disco is great for everything from house-cleaning to working out). Energizing, and I find it boosts my mood.

I like just about every type of Music. Currently I listen mostly to Bluegrass...but also occasionally Gregorian Chants and New Age music when I want to chill...(even Vivaldi and Bach on occasion).

Oh-- and occasionally I even like some of the really  "old stuff" . . like..The Inkspots!

I don't know. I still like a lot of the old stuff. Disco was extravagant for pop entertainment. Maybe over the top by today's standards. But hey, at the time, the choice between hanging out with a few macho  guys who's heads weren't exactly on straight vs a couple really nice young ladies, the decision was a no brainer on Friday and Saturday night.

Believe it or not I remember the Ink Spots, though not any songs. My best friend for many decades was almost exactly 15 yrs older than me and grew up in some of the not so fine NYC neighborhoods. Attended the same high school the story Black Board Jungle was based on. Leather jacket, switch blade, zip gun, '53  Flat Head  V8 Ford, gang leader. You name it.

The 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles put all that energy to good work. Anyhow he had stacks of old original vinyls; singles, LPs, all kind of speeds and sizes. We built a console (back then people often made their own furniture) to hold some music equipment and he copied all the vinyl to large real to real. I always  got a chance to hear his library. Old stuff from the '20s through mid 60s.

His wife made the best Spanish rice.

Then there was a fella I know who was in the Root Boy Slim band at one time. Ron Holloway, is how I think it was spelled. At one point he went off to create a name for himself in the LA area.

His Dad had wall to wall Jazz in their basement from the beginning of time. Pre-dating vinyl and all the different players needed for the different media. Incredible collection.

What were we talking about again?

Here's one that is definitely one of my Disco favourites-- although I don't think it was well known. Starts off a bit slow, but really picks up. I used to have this on vinyl. Lowered the lights, cranked up the volume played each entire side non stop at parties. Incredible for dancing!!!

I remember that one,  Stagger Lee ,and at the time it seemed like Personality was the one of his I heard most on the radio (anyone here remember back that far? At the time there was this interesting electronic device called... a radio! But that was long before Al Gore invented the Internet...)

Well, since we're getting back into the early 60s and even the"Pre-60's"-- here are a few classics I like:

More of Fats.

 
 
Krishna
39.3.3  Krishna  replied to  Kavika @39.3.2    6 months ago

Fats was great.

And that reminds me someone of about the same time IIRC: Little Richard!

Here's another. (An interesting time in America-- I couldn't help but notice that all the performers were black, performing to a crowd that was all white...). Also, some smooth dancing starts at about 2:25 in...

Country....I discovered the group Home Free last year.  I love their sound and videos...

Yep! I watched these guys on The Sing-Off and it was a real treat. They brought it, I mean every week. Kept 'it' interesting. (Big Smile.)

They brought it,

I agree. I found Home Free by accident via one of their covers.  I then watched their Sing Off competition.  My fav was the cover of "I'm Alright".  

 
 
CB
40.1.2  CB  replied to  mocowgirl @40.1.1    6 months ago

Finally, I can reply. I am having trouble with this thread slowing down my system. (Truly beautiful thread, nevertheless!!!)

I loved that competition. And Home Free were right to win the battle, because they had been building throughout the competition. I was truly a highlight moment for reality television when this 'crew' won. Incidentally, I miss Sing Off! I want it back! Nick Lachey - host, Jewel, Shawn Stockman - Judges. Brilliantly qualified.

Lyrics
This old man and me, were at the bar and we
Were having us some beers and swaping 'I don't cares'
Talking politics, blond and red-head chicks
Old dogs and new tricks and habits we ain't kicked
We talked about God's grace and all the hell we raised
Then I heard the ol' man say;
"God is great, beer is good and people are crazy"
He said "I fought two wars,
Been married and divorced"
What brings you to Ohio?
He said "Damned if I know"
We talked an hour or two about every girl we knew
What all we put 'em through
Like two old boys will do
We pondered life and death
He light a cigarette
He said "These damn things will kill me yet;
But God is great, beer is good and people are crazy"
Last call its two a.m., I said goodbye to him
I never talked to him again
Then one sunny day, I saw the old man's face
Front page obituary, he was a millionaire
He left his fortune to some guy he barely knew, his kids were mad as hell
But me, I'm doing well
And I drop by today, to just say thanks and pray,
And I left a six-pack right there on his grave and I said;
'God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy"
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

Lyrics
Remember when I was young and so were you
And time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when
Remember when we vowed the vows and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when
Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
Remember when
Remember when the sound of little feet
Was the music we danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when
Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin' back, it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are, where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when
Remember when
Remember when

Thank you, though, I must submit to you as RA, this seed and it's threads, as unequivocal proof that few members of NT follow instructions. It went delightfully off the rails almost immediately and alas I found myself incapable of mustering discipline.

Perhaps those who don't follow instructions exactly should get a one week suspension? Mentioning or posting a music video that does not explicitly follow the rules is a serious offense and should not be taken lightly.

Achtung! -- exposing people on NT to those videos only degrades the conversation!

As the seeder I think I should choose the penalty. If I were King it would be that everyone get free concert tickets of their choosing and a mandatory post about the show. 

Those that came close to following instructions get to choose two.

Free concert tickets? I would be down for that. 

The ticket prices are unreal these days. Use to be able to get a ticket for about $12 and it was general admission.

Now it is always assigned seating and several hundred bucks.

49.1.6  author  Dulay  replied to  Ender @49.1.5    6 months ago

I was supper lucky, as a teenager, my mother worked for an advertising agency that got excellent tickets all the time. I saw the Jackson 5 in 70' and sat in the front row and the Stones with Stevie Wonder in 72' from box seats.

Then in the mid-70's, my girlfriend worked for the Loop radio station in Chicago and I actually got sick of going to concerts every weekend. 

My cousin is a roadie and when he comes into the area with a band he gets me tickets. He got me in to see Bowie's Heathen concert with Moby.

I think once we start down memory lane with one song, it seems to open a floodgate of memories of people, places, and experiences that are so much part of our pasts...and of course other songs that were a backdrop to all this. Here is my favor singer of the that era, who with her older brother produced many hits...she tragically left us way too early.
