What Are You Listening To Right Now?

Recommended Posts

The collaborative band formed by Primus bassist Les Claypool (one of the most brilliant and eccentric bass players in rock today) and Sean Ono Lennon (second acknowledged son of the Beatle John Lennon). Claypool has described Sean Lennon as even weirder than himself (which he considers a high-order compliment), and they've recorded several albums and toured together.

"Is This the Life We Really Want?" - Roger Waters

 

The title track from the album of the same name, it is perhaps one of Roger Waters' most political statements.

 

Because of some of the imagery in the lyrics and the video, I'm not going to embed it, though the link is below.

he original cast recording of Hadestown, recorded during a live show so you get some of the thunderous applause that greeted many of these songs. The show is a retelling of the Orpheus myth set in something similar to the Depression, where the god Hades' marriage is on the rocks and he's overcompensating by turning the land of the dead into a massive factory complex using the souls of the deceased as labor. Some of the tracks with Hades the god (especially his interaction with Orpheus) are terrifying.

 

I have no likelihood of going to New York and seeing Hadestown live. But heavens do I want to!

The music system at the casino where I work plays oldies on Wednesdays as part of a promotion to get people 50+ in. When I started, it was a mix of pop tunes from the 40s through 70s, but the music system has been branching out lately. This song was playing yesterday:

The ambient sounds of traffic and the occasional airplane. That's life near a highway and an airport.

 

I feel for you. In college, I lived next to a fire station. I laughed when other people complained about how noisy their neighbors were.

I grew up with Country & Western music, and played a bunch of my Mom's old LPs as a kid. Mom passed away almost three years ago, and I'm missing her a lot right now. Here's one of her favorite songs:

 

Kitty Wells and Patsy Cline are still favorites. 

I miss C&W, but it has passed away.  There hasn't been any made since the late 90's.

Sadly, that's true. It's been replaced with Alt-Country and its successors, which aren't nearly as enjoyable to me. Another favorite that Mom loved:

@Ternaugh - Back in the day when there were real places to actually dance, Walking After Midnight was a favorite of mine.  I tell you I miss the days when there were actual nightclubs and dance-halls.  But that is pretty much gone.  I visited a local "country bar" a few years ago, and it was all 80's rock with a few country words thrown in.  People didn't even know how to country dance, it was pretty much the same as you see at any club, what I refer to as simulated epileptic fits to music :nonp:
