If you like it then post it, I am fully aware that ska music and death metal are not to everyone's taste but that did not stay my hand :)

P.S. I liked it, very calming music.

I actually liked the previous links too! I have an eclectic taste in music. And now for something quite mad - Mediaeval metal rock, or whatever it's supposed to be!

Hi Everybody

I'll add one too. It's Katie Melua and Nine Million Bicycles. I know! You've probably heard it a hundred times by now! It's just so lovely to listen to. And so calm! Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTy3WA0Pq8M!

Cheers!

Bit o' Sublime, Massive Attack and Ska-P (unfortunately the best quality sound is on an AMV)

I'm listening to Massive Attack's Tear Drop as I write this. Love it!

Here's another beautiful voice, Kate Rusby. She wrote this song My Young Man in remembrance of her grandfather who died of Black lung disease, pneumoconiosis, a once common malady of coal miners working in horrendous conditions. She sings from her grandmother's perspective, as she laments the fading of her once strong man who now lays dying in her arms.

I know it's a very depressing theme, but Kate's voice is haunting.

As an antidote, here's a ditty by Sea Sick Steve - my son met him at Glastonbury this year. This style of music is not normally my cup of tea, but I have to admit, Steve's a Huckleberry Finn pensioner with Hendrix attitude!

Listening to the Cockney Rejects 'Oi Oi Oi' at the moment. Listened to Ravel's Bolero earlier and intend to listen to 'Little Drummer Boy' by Bing and Bowie (truly one of the most beautiiful songs ever) in a minute to get me into a festive mood.

Can anyone remember what kind of music Schopenhauer said could take someone beyond the veil? Quartets or something. Might give it a go later after the football.

You've a wonderfully eclectic musical palate! The Cockney Rebels trigger a faint memory of The Sex Pistols. Do you remember 'Anarachy UK'? What a ditty! A more wholesome cockney was the late Ian Dury, disabled as a result of polio in childhood. I like his 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick'.

P.s. I can't remember the specific music Schopenhauer recommended for moving someone beyond the veil. But I suspect it was a great deal more ethereal than punk.

Yeh, Ian Dury was a genius with lyrics and invented a musical sub-genre.

Probably the most philosophical tune I've ever heard is the theme from 'Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy' No words, just metaphysics. I can't explain why, it just mesmerises me.

Are you thinking of BBC Radio 4's theme tune for Hitch Hiker's Guide, first broadcast in the late 1970s? If so, I remember it fondly as I listened to the entire series which continued for many weeks. Brilliant on every level!

b2b,

I have many favourite songs. Angie is my "most" favourite (especially where it says: come on babe dry your eyes...pfffffffffff)

check out this song:
