I was thinking of a song I always love hearing, although it doesn't get much airplay anymore...Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus.

 

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=mEX1RJSsG9M

 

I don't know what it is, but man I dig that whole 'two tickets to iron maiden' line.  I think it must remind me of my fondest dreams as an adolescent...a girl, with two tickets to a metal concert, talking to me. :)

 

I think I must have felt some degree of loneliness and distance from everyone as a teenager, nothing too unusual - just something that maybe a lot of teenagers go through (ha ha, or maybe it was just me, I dunno know) - but I think this song kind of strikes at that chord.  The idea that we all feel kind of 'separated' in our own way during those years, but in the end, we're really not so different. We're just trying to muddle our way through it.

 

Maybe that's it, the idea that most of us were teenage dirtbags (in the nicest self-deprecating sense of the word) - there's something reassuring about that idea.

Aw, the heck with it, I feel in the zone tonight.  Two more.

 

Here's a good rock song (with a real smidgen of punk), Mr. Brightside by the Killers.  If you've ever been 'let go' you likely connect with the chorus of this one:

I never noticed before, but that's actually a sharp looking suit the lead singer is wearing.

Okay, last one from my tri-decade revival tour.  A classic from the university years.  Zombie, by the Cranberries.

I could dim the lights, put this on repeat and just think myself to oblivion.  Still searing.

My all-time favorite song is:

 

A friend of mine played it for me when I was about 15 and I completely fell in love with the band. Since then, I've had every Something Corporate album and they're always a band that I'll go back to for their heartfelt lyrics. I've tried showing some of my friends their songs and they find them too depressing, but I really like feeling the emotion in each of their songs.

 

I also quite like this song:

 

I just love watching them perform.

My music taste varies depending on what bands I find on spotify, but my two favourites that always will be are:

 

Don't Fear The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult:

 

 

and of course

 

Layla by Eric Clapton:

 

 

These are two great songs that will hopefully stay with me throughout my life.

I am just a lover of music, I have no set one type of music I like over another, I love just about all of it. I was singing since the age of 9, played instruments since I was 12 or so with the main focus on brass (Trumpet, Cornet, Baritone, Sousaphone, Concert Tuba, French Horn), then Percussion, and dabbled with Electric Bass guitar some. I was in the choir in High School and also sang in 3 different Quartets. Music has been a major part of my life. Recently I have gone away from the "labeled" groups and artists and started looking at the independent and up and coming artist's for a glimpse of something fresh. I also like seeing the covers of popular songs to see what kind of "their own touch" a group can add to make an already great song seem even better. One that keeps sounding better and better each time I hear it is a cover of "Toxicity" from System of a Down done by 3 ladies with a slightly different approach. It just blows my mind.

We should start our own SG brass band ;) Between the two of us already we have 7 brass instruments. If we get LadyS on board we have 3 trumpets! You sing, I'll do backing vocals (I adore nailing a perfect harmony). We're set. Let's go!

I have a varied taste in music but I am currently addicted to two songs, metallica's the day that never comes and pink's **** like me. As soon as I hear the opening notes of the day that never comes I start to relax. As for **** like me I won't comment beyond saying the words strike a note!

At the moment this is a song I really love and listen to a lot:

 

 

Also I found this in the thumbnails on youtube when I looked up Strange and Beautiful:

 

 

I haven't listened to it for a very long time but I really love this whole album, particularly this song :)

Since we are expressing our musical intrests... I feel remise not spreading the word of a group I really love. I had the pleasure of seeing them live as well and they were extremely good. To top that off, they are a rock group with a woman lead singer - who is amazing at it. I wouldn't be exaggerating to say I feel she is the best female rock singer in history.

I'm digging that Halestorm...that sounds like some Lita Ford eighties heavy metal. Not too shabby.  The toxicity cover was good too, but where was the that 'heavy guitar/bass' sound (1:15 - 1:18) coming from - the electric violin?  No way!

Yes, the electric violin. Remember it's electric, you can do the same things with it as an electric guitar.

Being down near Mexico, I have an obvious influence in my taste. However, growing up with grandma, all she would play on the radio was classical. Not opera though. Don't like Opera.

 

But from these two tastes, this was born:

 

Enjoy, ya uncultured barbarians. Jk.
