Sometimes I get lost on Youtube as I did tonight following your links, and ended up here:

I love the Beatles, and this take is very original.

Amazing talent...

All by The Strawbs. I've got the vinyl spinning right now. These guys have created some of the moodiest, hardest hitting, and most transporting music of all time.

By far, The Strawbs are my favorite band ever.

I don't care what sort of music you fancy. These guys will have written something that speaks to you, and once you hear it, you begin to understand everything else they wrote. Their pedigree is as long as any, and they still play today. As a matter of fact, I hear tell of a new album. If it is indeed out, I'll be buying it as soon as I come across it. These fellows have been around for a LONG time. Rick Wakeman used to play with them. In their days they have written more than a few epics, and made heroes of people who long deserved a song, but had never got one until that point.

Incidentally, they can be very relaxing, and I will commonly play their records or something like Enigma in the evenings. Despite their hard edge on occasion, The Strawbs are quite moody, and will calm the mind as you can't help but play out the story in your head as you listen.

Cheers,

Kennith

my all time favorite piano piece is Arabesque No.1 in E by Claude Debussy. Mainly because of my wife.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blcrde0zPaU

I wake up to it on Sunday mornings. It's heavenly.

but tonight, I am into some violin action:

I love that song too but every time I hear it, I think of Jack Horkheimer, Star Hustler.

I wonder who else here knows what I'm talking about.

This is dangerous thread

The link on the Strawbs didn?t have Part of the Union!

So as a result went looking for some more 1970?s political songs

Redgum ?only 19? (including a couple of Photos of an Australian Army Series IIA in Vietnam)

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=l-bf2o9UejE


(interesting song: Redgum was a 70?s left wing protest Group?the lyrics of the song are part of the Vietnam memorial at the Australian War Memorial)

Via a couple of hours of obscure Australian stuff of no interest to Americans, a short excursion to The Pogues and back to Australia?s premier lyricist, Paul Kelly performing with Cat Power?Brilliant Stuff!

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=GwTGhy...eature=related


And half watching the Tour de France live

Still one of the best modern videos ever.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=SmVAWKfJ4Go

One of my favorite new Wilco tracks.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=97IT0-EDTtw

And a great Billy Bragg/Wilco tribute to Woody Guthrie that will never get old.

I?d never thought I?d see another Billy Bragg aficionado on Dweb!

More than 5 songs and you feel the urge to storm the ramparts!

No, can't say that I did. I've been there quite a few times, though.

Great song, and a great tale that still deserves to be told.

Just to see if you are paying attention... I'd watch till the end if I were you.

Redgum had that epic Gladstone Pier. Some depressing lyrics in that one. Great tune.

That third video is impressive. I love the improvisation that he does between the standard piece even if it was written in a variant of C versus the normal D. nice job.

We listened to Arabesque No.1 in E when we woke up this morning and it was great. Put on some more chocotiger (that kid is amazing) while cooking breakfast:

I love Ben Folds Five, good selection.

This was my choice, came on my Zune today while driving and I've always loved this song. Playing the album while housecleaning.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5nNfbTS6N4

Went to Blue Man Group and the opening act was a VJ, he did this awesome set using Human Behaviour. She's one freaky little elf, but damn do I love me some Bjork. I blew the speakers out of my car one day, it was quite embarassing to tell everyone I was thrashing to Bjork when it happened.

and this is just a damn beautiful song

If now you got a fever and the only prescription is more harp, Joanna Newsom is the doctor.
