Music Tracks You Get Lost In

Mon Dec 12, 2005 8:14 am

Hi

You know when you've had a few beers and listen to certain songs that you can just lost in, maybe whiling away the late hours, singing to your hearts content and not giving a dam if anyone's listening to your version ? Well I have a couple that always whisk me away:

Energy 52 'cafe del mar' and Barbers 'Argio de strings'

Which one's do you listen to when all you can think of is that track and gives you that feel good vibe ?

'King of the Road' by Roger Miller does it for me.

There are soooo many:

Lately - Stevie Wonder
As We Lay - Shirley Murdock
Maggie May - Rod Stewart
Oliver's Army - Elvis Costello
among loads of others.

But just lately, a song I can't get enough of is called 'E Paia' by a New Zealand band called Adeaze. Now you have to bear in mind that the song is sung in Samoan, and as I don't speak a word of the language, listening to me sing to it to my heart's content is quite an event!

'Argio de strings'

That would be Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings." I have several different recordings of that. Good stuff. Bach's "Air on the G String" is another - but really only when arranged for full orchestra.

There are a few for me, some of them are recent some are older tracks. Also some are relatively embarrassing but I don't care!  Wink

Each of these songs represent certain events in the past year or so, but each of them good events.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Scar Tissue
Sugababes - Push The Button
Scissor Sisters - Filthy/Gorgeous
Mariah Carey - We Belong Together
Glenn Lewis - Don't You Forget It
Herd, Fitz ft. Abigail Bailey - I Just Cant Get Enough
Wallen - L'Oliver

The Killers: Smile like you mean it

Both bring back memoroes of a great holiday to Malaysia and Australia, both playing as we approached MAN in 9M-MPB, the final leg of the journey.

I have a digital music player that has an FM transmitter that I use with my car's radio. I crank up the music and sing away. I try not to sing to forcefully during the day otherwise other drivers and pedestrians think you're a nut case but at night or on the open road there is nothing stopping me.

Lately I have been listening and singing to
-U2's Elevation and All because of you
-Radiohead's Paranoid Android and Karma Police
-Electric light Orchestra's Evil Woman and Don't bring me down
-Coldplay's Clocks and Scientist (an English friend of mine would sing these out of tune in the office every day despite requests from others to stop)

Dude - I knew you were on my RU list for good reason. McCartney absolutely steals that tune, and Lennon is phenomenal on that track, so that tells you what I think about Paul's bassline. He has been totally underated as a bass player.

It really is a mantra piece.

Try "Here Comes the Sun." McCartney on bass and Harrison on the harmonium. It's a regular window rattler.

Anybody "owns" Chris Joss's last year album "Spiked"?

Groovy beyond belief. Excellent quality. Definitely an album you lose yourself in; with the Gin' n'tonic buzz? Heaven. Best tracks? All of them, but if you insist, try "Waves of love", and "You've been Spiked" though high-quality Senheisers...

Great tune...

"Bohemian Rhapsody"....Queen. I was not alone in this selection. I pulled up to a major intersection, the other day. "Rhapsody" was on the radio, and as it came to the great guitar part, I caught myself doing the bit from "Wayne's World" with my head. As I looked around the intersection, I noticed three OTHER guys, in their own cars, doing the same thing!

Toss on the album "The Wall" by Pink Floyd when you've had a few drinks, and you'll be completely lost for an hour and a half. Same could be said for the album "The Joshua Tree" by U2. Just incredible stuff. There's really something to be said for whole albums where once you start them, you can't stop till they're done. Like "Lateralus" by Tool, or "Vapor Trails" by Rush.

Speaking of which, the two live Rush albums I've heard ("Exit: Stage Left" and "A Show of Hands") also are almost transcendental for me (especially the drum solos).

On the classical side, I'm a huge fan of the Emperor Concerto by Beethoven. When I was young, I'd pretend I was conducting the whole piece. That and Ravel's Bolero will occupy me for quite a while.

Ugh, it's 10 AM, I just took an in-class final and finished writing a takehome final, so I take no responsibility for the above.

The recent ones for me have been:
Nothing But You - Paul Van Dyk
Innocente - Delerium and Leigh Nash
Beautiful Things - Andain (Gabriel & Dresden Mix)
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
Dragostea Din Tei - O-ZONE (this song is better know as numa numa)
Tunak Tunak - Daler Mehndi

I haven't really been singing along with any of them except for Hallelujah. I just close my eyes and get lost in the songs. I try to sing to Dragostea Din Tei, but it is in Romanian. I suppose I could get the English version, but that wouldn't be as much fun. Tunak Tunak is only fun if you have a group of drunk friends and you are watching the music video, laughing at the dancing. It somehow sucks everyone in and they start trying to sing it and copy the bizzare dance moves.

The compilation album Sunset Ibiza is full of amazing and very relaxing tracks, many of which have already mentioned. Some of my favourites to listen to and forget about everything are:

Groove Armada - At The River
The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds
The Sabers of Paradise - Smokebelch II (Music from JMC 'brown paper' adverts!)
Clubbed to Death - Rob D

(and that's before I even get to disc two! Big grin)
