Hey y'all,

Since music is such an integral part of our lives, I was wondering what everyone is listening to? I just discovered a Lebanese gal name Maya Nasri (Hubbaaaa hubba!). I'm usually spinning something Irish or Arabic, but I like almost anything except for gangsta rap and the really heavy metal stuff... Feel free to list religious and secular favorites!

Icky Thump by White Stripes
Momentary Lapse of Reason by Pink Floyd
Playing the Angel by Depeche Mode

Those are on pretty much constant rotation, though I typically just put the iPod on shuffle and let it play all day.

Siberian Divide, by Mastodon
Breakpoint, by Megadeth
Orion, by Metallica
A New Level, by Pantera

I really like Staind, though I haven't heard them in a while.

I just got the DVD's of Rameau's "Les Indes Galantes" from netflix so I've listened to a bit of them (and if you want to see a clip of the last section "Les Sauvages" sent in (theoretically) the 18th century Native American life (well it is Baroque) I can post a YouTube link.  It's a mixed setting and I'll bet you didn't know that some soloists can sing with a pipe clamped in their teeth.

I'm also listening to:

Secret Garden
Electronic Space music
Native American (Coyote Oldman among others)
Waverly Consort- Songs from Colonial America
Medieval/Renaissance dances from "Orchesographie"
"Sesame Street Kareoke"/"Sesame Street Sing yourself Silly"/ "Put Down the Ducky" (well I do have a small child)
Caillou songs (same child)
Celtic Folk Music
Japanese instrumental both ancient and modern (but not J-pop)

Among other things.

Right now I'm on a Deep Purple kick and combing YouTube for various live songs from the band, particularly the classic Mark II line up.  I'm starting to write songs again in a very hard rock/heavy blues rock feel (lots of minor keys) and have come full circle back to Purple for inspiration.  Just listening to Blackmore attacking his guitar makes me find a new way to play every single time.  I only wish I could play the organ like Jon Lord, or even play the organ at all!  Oh, how I dream of finding that keyboard player who I can a) put up with and b) play like that. 

Ironically, the Bad Brains have also got a lot of playtime on my iPod.  Again, I suppose I'm looking for some heavy and hectic inspiration.

Ian Matthews' covers of 'Seven Bridges Road' and 'Man at the Mill' (met him a couple of times before he moved to Holland - he's cool)
Suzanne Vega, 'Rusted Pipe' and the version of 'Tom's Diner' with DNA (saw her in concert once)

Well yes, if you mean things like oohhhh Handel's "Messiah" (in full bore as recorded in the Washington National Cathedral- that place has a ring time in the 10+ seconds range) or Los Calchakis' "Missa Criolla" or William Byrd/Thomas Tallis/Thoma Luis Da Victoria/Vaughn Williams or many other composers.  ;) 

If you mean the St. Louis J-boys' music or similar, I don't care for it. Other people like it and that's OK.  (Some of it sounds like it could be advertising margerine and a lot of it is not written for group singing, too many swoops and irregular timing.  The German hymns and chorals with regular meter are *made* for congregational singing.)

Of the music I listed in my above post, the last few bands are Christian (Six Feet Deep, Tourniquet, and Underoath). Besides those three, I listen to a few other Christian bands, such as Becoming the Archetype, Extol, Betrayal, Deliverance, Stretch Arm Strong, Strongarm, and White Cross. Though being an atheist, I also like the evil, secular music ;D

All day! ;) I suspect my Romanian girlfriend thinks I might have a crush on him.  :eek: :D We went to Barnes and Noble and I thumbed thru a coupla' books about him. I was seven years old when he passed. My mamma cried and cried, but so did the whole state of Kentucky where we lived. So so sad.  :'(

Could you at least post video titles for those of us who are too lazy to follow the links (or just don't want to follow blind links)?

Don't worry too much.  I'm sure someone has seen him alive somewhere. ;)  Of course, if Elvis IS still alive, he's the ripe old age of 72--he certainly isn't going to look like he did at 42.

for me, any music that is beautiful, illuminating, and/or truthful, well written, well executed is christian music.

What a strange coincendence!  Last week I listened to Bad Brains "I against I", what a great record.  I also listened to a compilation I have of all Bad Brains reggae songs pulled from all their releases, called "Reggae Brains".  I hadnt listened to Bad Brains for years before last week.

I can't listen to music while I'm working.  I have to be doing something like typing or reading on then net or driving a car.  I was a music man you see, and I like listen intently to music, especially those who make thier music with complicated rhythms and unusual keys, like Rush, or E Muzeki.

I'm the same way. I can't just 'tune it out' esp if I like what's playing. I can get so into the music that nothing else exists which tends to rile my girlfriend.  :eek:

Regarding Orthodox music, what are the language preferences; does everyone  like to hear it in your language or another language? I like to know what's being said, so English is helpful. But I also like hearing other languages; it somehow makes the experience more other worldly.

Well, I just started hearing Greek Chant done in my father's tounge: Spanish.  It is so awesome to hear the Anaphora sung therein.

I do like listening to Slavonic, Arabic and Greek as well, but I have also taken to listening to Ethiopian spiritual songs.
