I out running errands and enjoying the sky machine radio today.  I enjoyed my little trip back in time through the decades and everything in between.  It got me thinking maybe I should start a music thread.  Got an earworm or something toe tappin' in your brain?  Share some of your favorite (good or bad) music/videos and let's take a trip.

B)

I offer...

Bee Gees - Lonely Days

Charlie Dore - Pilot of the Airwaves

Men at Work - It's a Mistake

Placebo - Pure Morning

Keb' Mo' - More Than One Way Home

KT Tunstall - Hold On

Monte Montgomery - Wishing Well

I have found YouTube to be a great source for music once thought long gone.  I just made myself a mix CD of stuff I pulled off there using Audacity.

Maybe later I will seek them out and post the links.

The only song of theirs that I remembered was Let the Day Begin.

I like me some Blues and guitars that can talk. The U of U's PBS fm station got me hooked in the seventies.

I couldn't find a good quality audio one for that.  Pulled a nice No Mercy and Always The Sun though.  Aural Sculptures = Brilliant album.

If you like funny music at all, look up "Jonathan Coulton". They're all fan-made videos and his music is incredibly witty and sardonic. I'm gonna try to see him at The Berkshire in March.
