The Official Music Thread

Recommended Posts

As I was going through some Profiles recently, I noticed that the most common reply in "Other Interests" section is MUSIC. Now as an Avid music lover, I am always in search of different Artists that give a new listening experience..

 

Let this thread be about Favourite Artists, Favourite Genre and All time Favourite song. Also, If someone has a new/old artist who is quite unheard of, but you think that their music is interesting, please do let everyone know!

 

Cheers~!~!

Love most songs by Sheryl Crow, Avril Lavigne many many more. I will post my long, long list sometime soon.

Everything and anything by The Beatles. Even after the foursome went solo their hits of the 1970's (Ringo Starr, Paul Mac, George H.,John Lennon) and 80's( all of them but John who was killed on 10th Dec 1980) and 90's (George and Paul Mac-Ringo had faded).I feel nothing on the earth can substitute music of The Beatles ever.

Michael Jackson's every song since Off  the Wall(1979) till Bad (1987) are a treat to listen in to. Later albums like Invincble and HisStory had a very few hits and lost the magic of the King of Pop.Older compositions of the JacksonsFive are cool where in 99% of the songs Michael's voice is in the male(or rather child) lead- marvellous!!

The Carpenters (Richard and Karen) gave some of the best ballads ever in the history of western pop music in the 1970's and 80's. One must never miss listening to these songs when in a mellow mood.Masterpeices they are! "Yesterday once more" is their best ever song I feel.

More later!

Well I too have started hearing some of the desi stuff, Singh is King is good, today's hindi music i guess has aligned with the Western POP style of music, with a lot of bass in the back ground and techno filling in the foreground. the earlier 60's music was just the singer in the foreground and light instruments in the background.

May be not very good for today's car AMPS and huge SubWoofers!!! smiley1.gif

My music collection has multiplied exponentially since the time I moved to London.

Too many awesome songs to talk about, however, I still find myself going back to Queen every day..

Cyrus I believe Bohemian Rhapsody was the best ever song by Queen.There are many more on my list from this pop group (incl the soothing You're my best friend) but I can listen to Bohemian Rhapsody all day long again and again.Sadly their lead singer Freddie Mercury died so young.

Some more oldies that I am listening to :-

Born too late  by Poni Tails (1958)

Bimbo by Jim Reeves (1950's)

But you love me Daddy by Jim Reeves (early 1960's)

Cadillac Ranch by Bruce Springsteen (1979) a rockin number!!!!

Dreams by The Cranberries (1994)
