Music Newly Discovered

As a change from the political etc stuff here (and I am more guilty than most for posting thus) I thought I'd start a thread about music I have recently discovered:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ35dnfYKrQ - Beth Orton (how did I miss her at the time).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UVjjcOUJLE - Eva Cassidy (achingly beautiful - I thought it was hype at the time but it wasn't).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2xODjbfYw8 - Sandy Denny (queen of English folk)

Nice idea. Many other forums have a musical thread, even if they aren't strictly music related. I think it's a welcome off-topic and it's always interesting to find out about other member's musical interests.

The three tracks were nice and soothing and very welcome. It was also nice to see Fairport Convention in there. I had forgotten all about them. I was never a fan of folk rock but a work colleague introduced me to this when I was 18. This was the late 70s when punk rock got going. The John Peel show on Radio 1 was essential listening then. I became quite interested in music by artists such as The Albion Band and Gerry Rafferty, but I also like the punk scene too. I went to the Porterhouse in Retford to see the B52s, one of my favourite bands at the time.

I will have a look around for videos links of tracks which were very important to me and post soon, but be warned in advance that my tastes in music are very varied and sometimes downright odd. I tend to lean to styles well off the beaten track, as I have mentioned before.

Looking forward to seeing more posts in this thread.

FOR JOHN, very interesting your choice of music, especially the mention of punk, wow!
I love punk, was a punk, still listen to it a hell of a lot to this day.

the john peel show, now that takes me back, as you say it was ESSENTIAL LISTENING.
THE B52S, not a big fan, seen them last year as the closing act for the weekend at the rewind 80s festival, Henley-on-Thames, big big disappointment, and to this day can never understand who put them on as the closing act to finish of the weekend, but that's me, not for me but like yourself, you like them.

apart from radio, my other, and main interest is music, either listening, concerts or gigs, not playing I may add.
I collect vinyl, have a seperates system, 4 speakers, 2 floor standing, 2 wall mounted, go to as many gigs, concerts, live music events as I can.
each year I go to Henley for the rewind 80s festival.

my first love in music is 80s, 80 to 84, the new romantics, followed by punk music, then it would be club, dance, hard house music, but I do listen everything else in between, bit country, classic, jazz, rock, but not this modern day stuff.

enjoy reading and it gives you an idea of my music tastes.

and one more thing, I say im big into my music, if it came to it, if I had to give up radio or my music, it would be radio, I can live without radio, not without music.

This thread didn't last very long - maybe we should have one on a dxer's favourite pair of polyester trousers or how long a dxer can go without bathing or showering...Judging form the radio rallys I attend that one should run and run.

Anyway three French ones:

Mylene's masterpiece California - https://vimeo.com/56293069

Inna Modja's crossover hit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdnGfzz ... Q34ODHjlyw

Dj Bob Sinclair & Sophie Ellis Bextor getting naughty - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwF8v0X ... w&index=11

I meant to post some links when you first started this but I am still re-discovering old songs which I had long forgotten about. The question is, would it be in keeping with the theme for me to post links to songs from the 70s through to the present? I have found some many old favourites it's untrue!

My musical tastes have always been outside the charts, so to find so many old rarities is quite amazing.

I find all this interesting too. There's no accounting for taste, as they say, and I don't think the kind of music we like necessarily relates to the kind of people we are or used to be. I used to like punk, for instance (still do), but I was never a punk rocker as such. I'll get the links together later and post. There might be quite a few though.

I was a punk, not now, but still listen to it.
was a new romantic, still am, although don't dress the way I used to in the 80s.
my music tastes are very varied, my first love is 80s, and punk, but don't mean to say I wont have a listen to other types music.
in a listening session, I can go from punk to 80s to classical to jazz right through to stuff like alice cooper and deep purple, just depends the mood im in.
one minute could be listening carpenters, next record on the turntable could be black Sabbath, just depends...

As long as you stop short of Killing The Poor. Our governments will take care of that.

This is the non-political thread! Talk about killing and eating the poor should have its own thread.

:) Well, this is all getting a bit random now. Some won't know what we're talking about, although I'm sure they will have realised that it's a play on word of song titles from the Dead Kennedys. Political correctness does not exist in any of their songs, but I used to enjoy some of their material on a musical level. Their lyrics are not exactly 'polite' in any way.
