What song are you listening to right now?
« on: December 11, 2005, 03:41:42 AM »
In this era of iPods, iTunes, satellite radio, and everything that is turning popular music from album-oriented to song-oriented, what song are you listening to at this very moment?  Post as often as you want on this.

"December 4th"--Jay-Z and The Beatles from the "Grey Album"

If anybody hasn't had a chance to download this, let me know.  In one of the most creative bootlegs I've ever heard, DJ Danger Mouse has mixed together Jay-Z's raps and other lyrics from his Black Album with music samples from the Beatles White Album.  Interesting, to say the least!

"Amazing Grace" played with bagpipes, in memoriam of James Dungy.  Funny enough, this song has the singular ability to hype me up, make me sad, help me study, and many other emotions, all at once.

I kinda like this thread, but I think it needs to be expanded...We know WHAT you are listening to, but I wanna know why?  Also, why report that one for the day?  Does it have any significance, or just at the time you were looking at your threads?  Let's hear some stories behind these songs!

Good idea, but what if there's no significance whatsoever?  :)

I have all my CDs uploaded to iTunes on my computer, and quite often, I just put all 1600 songs on one big random play.  When do I report in?  Usually, whenever I remember the post is there, which explains the randomness here.

Erik

p.s.  Right now, "B.Y.O.B." by System of the Down...not a random pick...I chose it to celebrate stories of Bush's potential impeachment after the 2006 elections.

Same here all mine are uploaded on iTunes except i don't randomise i just listen to my playlists.

I think a better thread would be Your album of the week and why, that way we say weekly a specific album if we listen to them that way and why we choose it.

Very fair answers!  I'm jsut a curious kinda guy!  If you would like to start a thread about "Your Album of the Week," by all means start that thread!  We here at Sandtroopers encourage topics to be started, as long as they're of content suitable for all ages and we can keep the content from becoming too political or aggressive.

I almost did this...but I really don't listen to whole CDs anymore (the times, they are a changing), so I went for the songs instead...

Incidentally:

"Frozen Love", by Buckingham Nicks (kind of an archaic find: Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks performed as a duo before joining Fleetwood Mac...and released a self-titled album in 1973)...great song, BTW...let me know if you'd like to listen.  Why this song?  It's been a long day, and this is one of those lengthy, epic, "wind-down" songs.

I'm pretty sure it's a harmonica :)  And yes, I do like him.

some of Bob Dylan's stuff is ok, like "Subterranian Homesick Blues" & "Just like a Woman" & "Blowing in the Wind" & "Like a Rolling Stone" & "Lay Lady Lay"  these may not be the exact title of the songs, but they are good songs....

I would also add "All Along the Watchtower", although Jimi Hendrix performed it better.

As far as genres, pretty much anything except country, cookie-cutter R&B and rap, and those groups that claim to be "rock" but write nothing but syrupy ballads.

GNR in it's day were the shiznit, but that was then.  As for genres, I myself listen to probably anything except country and boybands.  Mostly Rock/Alternative, Industrial, "funny" rap, some old school rap.  I find classical and instrumental to be great to study with.

What composers do you rock out to, Pat?

My faves: Krystof Pendercki, Igor Stravinsky, Peter Glass, Kurt Weill, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Frederic Chopin.

Why?  Because Trent Renzor can still kick the ass of most of these groups that claim to be "rock".

To be honest, I'm into whatever.  Of course there are the big ones...Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Handel, but Stravinsky, Chopin are good too.  Sometimes I log onto YahooMusic and clock on the classical station.

Oh, and HELL YEAH Trent Reznor kicks all form of ass!
