Introduce Me To…

your favorite musician.

I listen to music from dawn to dusk.

So my family must’ve finally gotten tired of me whining about the lousy battery in my MP3 player and
I was presented with a docking station for my birthday. Woo-hoo! Non-stop music is now at my fingertips.

Trouble is (no KWS pun intended) I only have about 200 songs in my library right now. Mostly ‘cuz I’m too lazy to hunt through all the available artists on Rhapsody/Amazon/iTunes. You could spend hour upon hour clicking and listening, listening and clicking.

So, your task is to introduce me to some new tunes…. with two exceptions. No rap/hip-hop and no country music. They both make my ears bleed.

Otherwise I have fairly eclectic tastes…. from Bob Marley to Korn.

And here’s one for you. This is Back Door Slam performing Outside Woman Blues…..

    I don’t listen to much else other than Beatles, so get all of it. And I don’t do the Rhapsody/iTunes thing.

    But, if you’d like to expand into other areas, I can recommend this:

    O Cieco Mondo

    Also, Chicago based Jill Watson: http://jill.carpentunes.com/index.htm , who’s a personal friend of mine (we were in a band together for a time)

    And then there’s this: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_music.cfm?bandID=15247 – Buy the CD!

    Mike >> It looks like I need to find a “shameless plug” avatar. 🙂

    I find it difficult to believe that as a musician you tend to limit yourself to the Beatles.

    Their music is indeed noteworthy, but IMHO, served as a stepping stone to bigger and better things. (What about the other pioneers like Janis, Jimi, The Dead, The Stones?)

    And, IMO, you’re missing out on some unbelievable young talent today.

    BTW ~ I’ll check all three links. Thanks for sharing.

    Heh! I stopped listening to the radio about 2002; I may be showing my age, but I have zero interest in what’s being listened to today. My music collection is about 3/5th Beatles (but bear in mind that’s several hundred albums and CDs). Number two on my list (but a distant No. 2) is the Who. Jimi I like, but like Led Zep, I’m sick to death of hearing it after all this time. The Stones stopped being interesting after 1985, Janis had one great album, and the Dead bore me silly. I’d much rather hear a great song, rather than someone endlessly jamming. Everything pales after Beatlemusic, until you go back to Bach or the Renaissance. Altho I’m starting to dig Dean Martin a lot more than I used to. He certainly had the best voice in the Rat Pack, and the smoother persona.

    Did you just say the Dead bores you silly?!? (gasp)

    Touch of Grey bores you silly?

    In that case, I don’t think we can continue this conversation. 🙂

    BTW ~ I like most genres (with the two exceptions noted in my post .) And that includes the Rat Pack (and big band too.)

    Back in the 80’s I worked in a record store, where the manager loved nothing more than to play a record (mostly vinyl back then) over and over. He’d play a single side for four hours, no problem.

    Touch of Grey was one of his favorite albums. In the end, he gave me the promo, but to this day I haven’t been able to play it. Another one was the Suzanne Vega album with “Luka” on it. Over twenty years later, I still can’t stand it.

    Administrator: I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I’ve been swamped with…okay, not true, I’m just a procrastinator…but for more of what I like, visit http://blip.fm/unfinishedperson.

    There’s just too much music I like.

    UR >> If I ever need lessons in procrastination I know where to find you. 🙂

    Thanks for the link. I’ll check it out.

    You may know where to find me, but I may not be able to get back to you for a few days or weeks. 😉

    Actually last week I went on one of my self-prescribed media fasts (I do it ever so often) and then end up clicking “Mark all as read” on my Google Reader when I come back to 500-plus unread blogs. So sorry, I missed this original post, but then I believe I saw the “Ahem” post that you had up…then I procrastinated from that one.

    A long explanation to say: Hey, I still read you. 🙂

    Awww. And I still read you. (wiping the tear from my eye.)

    Whenever you get time to stop by is good with me UR. I’m always happy to see you. 🙂

    But I know you have several “unfinished” blogs to work on.
