What Are You Listening To Right Now?

Digital or analog, streaming or your own, audio or video (concert/performance) - share what's grooving you. Photo/screenshot  is preferred, not mandatory. A link so others can listen to what you're sharing is nice as well.

 

I'll start with: Stevie Ray Vaughan's Live Alive album, and the song  "Life Without You" -one of my favorite SRV songs. I had the double album, and at some point I decided to get the double CD from the local record store. When I got home and went to play Life Without You . . . it wasn't on the CD! WTF! I went right back to return it, and the local owner - who was always a tool and was the type that felt he was doing you a favor by letting you buy his stuff, would not refund the money.

I am more into Audible.com than music these days. Current choice...Mark Dawson’s “Bright Lights”  book #15 in the John Milton series.

Disappointed our library doesn't stock Dawson's books in audible form.  My stack is full of un-listened books as I mostly listen while driving and ain't been driving much.  Watched Tana French's "Dublin Murders" and enjoyed so have her other novels on the shelf.  Musically, listening to Maria Callas operas occasionally.  Yes. Because opera and Maria Callas.

 

Enjoy the Keys.

AZgman - Thanks. The Mrs and I were in Encinitas visiting my sister in 2017. A childhood friend of my sisters was also visiting, and at her suggestion, we all headed off to The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach to see The Bright Social Hour and Galactic. What a show - I had no idea what to expect and none of us had heard of either band, excerpt for the visiting friend  - but I left The Belly Up wanting more and having to settle for a cd from the merch table. The opening track to Space is Still The Place, Sweet Madeline is on a few of my 'ride mixes'. I find when it's playing, I need to be mindful of my pace, because starting at 1:10 the strangely subtle drums begin to build and at 1:15 that subtle yet driving drum beat tries as hard as it can to influence me to twist ....and..... twist the wrist. The first time that happened, it caught me off guard, because this isn't the normal type of tune to can drive my riding.

 

I'd not heard of SUN RA - thanks for the reference. Pretty interesting indeed. I got about 1/3 of the way through the song before duties beckoned. My initial impression was uncertain. Now with headphones and listening again while I work on my helmet, I like it. I've actually listened to it twice, hearing more with each listen. It's not something I could listen to when I ride, but it's kind cool to have in my head while I'm tasking away at the usual nothingness.

@Living the Dream - The Planets is an interesting piece. Obviously, the first piece feels a little ominous and Star Wars-like, and I had trouble shaking that feeling I was going to see a Battle Cruiser fly by at any moment. One of the wonderful things about music is how it can stimulate the brain is so many ways and be so emotive. I liked the middles pieces best and felt more free of SiFi vibe - although that lingers somewhat throughout. Not that there's anything wrong with that. The middle bits just didn't feel so ominous. A nice piece, and one that I'll no doubt visit again.

 

@AZgman Whoa! Dude! Ripplegroove's Dance Bit*hes has a awesome...... wait for it .. .. groove! Hints of Booker T came to mind as I listened, I really like this tune. I see the band is now called Redux.

 

Thanks!

It's called the planets, of course it's gonna feel star wars/sci-fi like.  If I recall correctly, the first time I heard any of this composer, was in one of the Conan movies. 

 

If you like sci-fi feeling music, check out Oblivion by M83

That is a fact! That song was written as a bet between two friends, that a song couldn't be written that was just crescendo with no bridge. Guess who won?

I hope the original Star Trek paid him royalties for using his song often in the series, usually during fight scenes.

And Bo Derek in her braids pop right into my head. Unfortunately, so does Dudley Moore...

I stumbled on this earlier this evening. It’s terrific rendition of my favorite Led Zep tune.

Maybe, maybe not, my taste in music is extremely wiiiiiiiiiiiiide........nearly every genre I have. 

 

If you recall a few years ago, Lorde had a pop hit of "Royals",.......I kinda like the remake by Otep better.
