Classic KING-FM radio in Seattle, often plays Bruckner on their 3rd High Definition Digital Symphonic radio station. Yesterday, they played Bruckner's 7th Symphony. Three or four times I've dialed into the channel to hear Bruckner's 8th Symphony. Somebody at KING loves the 8th.

There they go again! Yesterday, accidentally tuned into King-FM classical HD 3 radio to hear Bruckner's 8th Symphony & they played the Bruckner 6th Symphony on their main channel later in the afternoon.
In addition on the King-FM HD 3 channel, multiple times, I'm hearing the Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, "Fairy Tales". Just lucky I guess.

Sadly, it is going to be far before the year 9595 before we've taken everything this old Earth can give, at the rate we're going.

~10,000 years of industrial civilization is setting the bar pretty low, geologically speaking - and we're going to be lucky to make it to 1,000(the year ~2,850).

I think this is the best interpretation of one of the best classics, Hallelujah!. The fact that it is acapella makes it sublime.

https://youtu.be/LRP8d7hhpoQ 


One of my favorite "procreation practice" songs. I think it borders on the obscene, in the best way possible.

https://youtu.be/2GRqCsUozjk

And something that I just recently experienced and completely blew my mind, Hamilton, the musical. Attached an animated version which gives the music a dimension similar to what is seen in the play. The music is good and clever, but the historic and story telling aspect puts it over the top.

Perhaps my favourite bird, the eurasian oystercatcher (scholekster, strânljip).
I hear and see these birds almost every morning on the lawn in front of our 3 storey apartment block (I've also seen deer and two coloured bats early in the morning). I've just heared these birds on our roof making the same sounds as this recording:

I often drive through the city at dawn or even before that. It is a great time for bird activity. It gets quieter when the humans wake up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DoWUsTjIgc

Well, the year it's 1991
It seems that freedom is dead and gone
The power of the rich is held by few
They keep the young paralyzed
Educated by your lies
Keep the old ones happy with the news
Tell the singer not to song a song
Tell the poet that she's wrong
In the courts you'll win the case with lies
'Cause you sold them down the river-o

If some of the old ones come across as grumpy it might be such stuff. Much is the same old same old.

ETA: great dancing song back then.

This is about the most soothing music I've ever heard - probably influenced by my having been introduced to meditation as a kid with this music as background.

Teenager phenomenon Billie Eilish sings about the themes of this forum, cleverly hidden in a nice pop song.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkPGmj8dyPU

"Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don't say I didn't warn ya"

"All the good girls go to Hell
'Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And Heaven's out of sight
She'll want the Devil on her team"

"Look at you needing me
You know I'm not your friend without some greenery"

"Your cover up is caving in
Man is such a fool, why are we saving him?
Poisoning themselves now
Begging for our help, wow"

Dave Brubeck - Take Five (1959)

Best song ever! Period.


Agreed in part. One of the best. My favorite is Miles Davis in the mid-60's, with Wayne Shorter on Sax, Herbie Hancock on keyboard, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums. Check out "Miles in the sky" album on you-tube. Next best album in my opinion was "Miles Smiles".

There is this Sartre short story.

We start in the middle of the action. The rebels are winning. The rebels conquer the palace and then their leader is taken in there. He faces an emissary from the local oil company who tells him how everything is going to play out.

He can only sell out. The other option is war but then you might never gain anything.

Sadly i cannot recall it´s name.

I used to like this song.

Part is random. I played in bands for fun for ages and at one point my favourite sonwriting buddy mailed me a song called Over Hond. Dot txt and stuff but i looked at the name an this could possibly be the punk rock equivalent of Flappie. It wasn´t but it is nice and easy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XxJ-HAPfcE

Actually if you look at energy budgets or that counter at the ASIB our actual output is ridiculous.

I like Klein Orkest very much and in general love the protest songs of the 70s/80s. Here I was different because I took those texts serious and sort-of lived my life accordingly. Don't understand why other people didn't do that.
Perhaps it is a nice idea to have a separate thread for "protest songs"?

You must have had a lot of fun kassy, playing in bands in those times. I've worked in the Melkweg for 8 years (from 2001), did you play there?
The song about the Sartre story, do you have an idea from what time period it must be? Do you know if it is Brittish, USA or other?
Title: Re: Good music
Post by: kassy on July 28, 2019, 09:37:05 PM
Nah if they are good music they fit here. If it is Ruud Gullit then it was a nice effort which really helped with PR but he was never gonna sing like he plays soccer.  ;)

The Sartre thing is just a short story but sadly i lost the dutch book.

My big dream was playing the dutch amateur band contest and being knocked out  in the first round (so you do not actually have to move any equipment) , or play whatever came next and it would have been great to make it to the Melkweg (or Paradiso dont know which one had the finals) but every time the band was good someone had to go to south america for 6 months to do research so that never worked out but music is fun.

You play and that is communication. People play back.
When you sing with a group you can play with timing of what you sing, or the pitch etc.

I think that in Trainspotting there is this scene where they all sing in a pub and people used to do that. I always kind of envied that because we only ever got to drink beer and listen to crap music
or dance to the good music in bars but we never sang like a crowd.

It is powerful. I also know a version of online gaming buddies from Ireland singing a protest song. Cannot publish that version but is the same song done another way:

I once had members of Flogging Molly playing in my house as an afterparty from the Korsakoff bar which was an afterparty of their concert in the Melkweg. What a great time. Great guys. Great music.

Not sure if it has any relevance, but in Italian "patatina" can be used to mean the clitoris (although normally it is used in the sense of "cute little girl", as in "ecola, che patatina!", but literally of course it means "little potato" or "potato chips").

And I've heard boys describe a short stick as "come un patatino" but my teacher refused to translate that one for me.

My sisters had this album and I thought it quite odd when I first listened after they'd gone off to college.  But I enjoyed the sort of stupid story - I mean, it was a story, not just a collection of songs (and have remembered something about it, unheard, for some 40 years).  Maybe it's not so stupid after all.  Well, maybe it is.  I imagine those who get artificially (or substance-ially) high might particularly enjoy it.

So, I finally got me John Coltrane's Giant Steps CD for my natural trumpet practise - After I decided to try a 7th voice to JS Bach's Ricercar a 6 on Dr. Frankenstein Jr's trumpet it was obvious I also have to give an ear to the Thema Regium of Jazz... (I might modify my CD player (Technics, late 1980ies, 18bit linear interpolation, upper ball of mechanics amputated ca. 1999) to fine tune the quartz, as my self-made copper trumpet (ca. 1986) can not be tuned. The Ricercar I got on an undulated Soviet LP (bought on the last day in East Berlin) which I can play on my 1980ies fine-tuneable turntable... Q: Has technology advanced meanwhile?)

Soon later I discovered an Indian goddess on YouTube singing Trane's solo perfectly unisono at original speed:

Re: dying sound equipment
Man, I really miss my HiFi system that I've enjoyed so so much since 1989. I've shed many tears from pure joy.

Because my Camtech8000A amplifier has problems since I moved  :(, I cannot use my Philips turntable, my NakamichiCR4E cassette deck, my MarantzCD85 cd player, my AudiolabCrestoMkII speakers and my SonySA5ES tuner. My Stax died earlier. I'm feeling kinda blue about it.

I now use 20 euro computerspeakers from Logitech because I have no money to repair my amplifier. It is built with only discrete components (no IC's) so should be repairable by an amateur if the PCB and the enormous trafo are still in one piece.
At least the old speakers make for nice furniture and I can put potted plants on them.

The following videomusicalio is mistitled. It is Jaco Pastorius playing Jaco Pastorius (pretty much the only bass I can enjoy on my fancy HP laptop with "Bang & Olufsen" loudspeakers. Acoustic bass requires external loudspeakers (Mono here). Alas the Bluetooth interfacings' failure points change with every "update" of the darn Windoze box...) and

steel drum plays Giant Steps:

(P.S.: My box does not allow to have internal and external speakers together. Would be interesting what echo effect that would give...

https://youtu.be/z4qGLDkK9TA

The second is world music from many years ago that shows how long we have known the world is changing at our hands.  If you don't like a bit then it's really worth shipping forwards as is a real melting pot of music

Apologies if this was already posted (my quick perusal didn't find it on the thread). Like some other message songs from decades ago...the messages just seems that much more poignant now:

"Oh, this world is burning fast.
Oh, this world will never last.
I don't want to lose it..."

Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam, of course.

(First go through is sung in Latin!)

A strange piece which was a surprise hit back in 1981, and is indeed very catchy.
Laurie Anderson with cryptic lyrics which appear to be about the Deep State, among other things.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vkfpi2H8tOE

'Cause when love is gone, there's always justice.
And when justive is gone, there's always force.
And when force is gone, there's always Mom. Hi Mom!

So hold me, Mom, in your long arms. So hold me,
Mom, in your long arms.
In your automatic arms. Your electronic arms.
In your arms.
So hold me, Mom, in your long arms.
Your petrochemical arms. Your military arms.
In your electronic arms.

A Dutch song with great protest lyrics:

Tol Hansse - Hoofdpijn, Rheumatiek (nl) (1978)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhHNAY2zKkM

Via Google translate:
It is not all that easy
We are worried about love
But now I cry alright
To pollute the sea
Where the whale happily squirted
Are they now sick or dead?
S.O.S., a fish in need
Through the mess and the mess
Come on, people, it's the plague
You foul your own nest
The Cuckoo and the Griet also don't like our mess

refrain:
Headache, rheumatism, water supply, gas factory
Headache, rheumatism, water supply, gas factory


What you don't want you to do
You do not do the frog either
Do not discharge toxic sludge or gas
In the ditch or in the lake
You don't throw a garbage bag either
About neighbor's neat suit
Or a rusty gas stove
In the aquarium at your home
Let live, let live
But it shouldn't give such a mess
Soon only money will grow
On a large garbage dump

Refrain

So man paid his price
For his egoistic life
And makes everything grey and gray
In The earthly Paradise
Nature can be purchased soon
To walk through't Bos again
What you have to demolish first
Because it was so in the way
That nature that was a flop
Because it brought no penny
Yes, man is like the shark
That brings pennies in the Laai

Refrain

With the sea it goes wrong
All that oil on the waves
Has already performed a lot
Soon he will be asphalted
That cars are not worth it
Come, we go again on the horse
In the rush hour on such an animal
Are you at home in fifteen minutes
On the tandem to the beach
Regardless of your rank or position
Do not take solar oil with you
Because there is enough in the sea

Headache, rheumatics, water pipe, gas factory

I once saw this movie together with a beautiful girl. She was about to leave for Mexico a couple of days afterwards and so the next day I went to the train station photoboot to photograph myself in diverse outfits and expressions, holding cardboard signs with the last one reading "I'll miss you". Put it in an envelope and wrote a fantasy story about how I coincidentally found these photo's. She really liked that.

I just listened to nanning's "Martine Bijl - Er Zijn Daar Geen Meikevers Meer (nl) (1974)" (November 4), found the lyrics (http://de.songcoleta.com/lyrics/er_zijn_daar_geen_meikevers_meer_(martine_bijl)) and ran Google Translate on them, and read the translation as I listened a 2nd and 3rd time.  It's a pretty song to listen to, and very sad.  Thanks.

Thanks blum and Tor. And thank you Tor for really listening to Martine Bijl. Powerful lyrics. Says a lot about how much of living nature is gone in the last century alone. Never to return. Very sad indeed. It is, alas, reality.

Popcorn led me to Switched On Bach
Specifically
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (Synthesized) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=px0px30A1eU)
and then
Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G major (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfR-IotApQU)
I remember playing my new (just released) Switched On Bach record at high volume on my decent stereo in my university dorm room.  The outside wall was mostly a steel sheet and acted like a speaker (noticeable on the outside).  It was quite glorious (if you liked this sort of music...)

I also once read to all, via an amplified mike, the last chapter of Through the Looking Glass, word for word backwards [Chapter XII. Which Dreamed it? (https://www.gutenberg.org/files/12/12-h/12-h.htm) ] (from the end - starting with "END THE: Dream a but. It is, what, Life?"). [I must have been popular ...  ::)] [I didn't need drugs...]

It´s mainly a song about country changing to city.

Sorry kassy, I missed your question.
I think it is genuine. Why would she make up the part where she sings about her father's memories?

I disagree with your synopsis. I think it is mainly a song about the disappearance of all kinds of wildlife.
refrein: "Er was zoveel om je heen, en dat is allemaal verdwenen, en geen macht op deze Aarde brengt het weer"

Already so much lost in 1973! I was 7yo so that was my 'normal' but now I know that most was already gone  :'(. Having read "The unnatural history of the sea" by Malcolm Roberts was the same sort of eyeopener. History in perspective -> Better world view :).

The song starts and ends in the city and while it is a lament our protagonist laments she cannot catch as much may bugs as her dad which is kind of an interesting angle.

After careful deliberation, I have decided that Simon & Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence" is actually about nuclear war. A cursory Google-ing of the subject reveals at least (and perhaps, at most) one other person agrees with this analysis.

https://religion101soundofsilenceblog.wordpress.com/2015/03/06/apocalyptic-attitude-simon-and-garfunkels-hidden-message-of-the-end/

I'm not sure if this belongs in the 'good music' thread or the 'human stupidity' thread because each and every analysis apart from the one linked above draw conclusions that are inherently vain (it's about depression, it's about the Vietnam War, it's about ME).

The flash of the neon light is the nuclear war being observed by the narrator. We simultaneously worship the "neon gods" i.e. nuclear power, with said worship only growing stronger in reverence since the song was originally written in 1964.

As the worship worsens and the signs of the prophet on subway walls & tenement halls goes unheeded (the end is nigh), the sound of silence begins to crescendo as global awareness regarding the potential of nuclear war declines. Ultimately the finale is the unleashing of our new Gods upon the entirety (or near-entirety) of the populace.
Quote
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

They are all dead, though with skulls intact (for those not completely incinerated), the talking without speaking and hearing without listening make perfect sense, since the skeletons are indeed stuck in whatever positions they were last active, "talking" or "hearing" but nevertheless removed of the capacity for speaking and listening. And how could the voices share the songs on the parchment when the voices are now gone?

I think it is very bothersome, but also telling, that the actual meaning of the song is almost entirely lost on the entirety of everyone.

Or that whole phase of his career.  ;D

I love this story of the very early Alice Cooper band:

Shep then arranged an audition for the band with composer and renowned record producer Frank Zappa, who was looking to sign bizarre music acts to his new record label, Straight Records.[16] For the audition Zappa told them to come to his house "at 7 o'clock." The band mistakenly assumed he meant 7 o'clock in the morning. Being woken up by a band willing to play that particular brand of psychedelic rock at seven in the morning impressed Zappa enough for him to sign them to a three-album deal.  8)

I listened to the beginning of several versions of "Be Prepared".  Finish, Hebrew and Polish (IIRC) had English translation subtitles - interesting the differences!  One (per my brief listens) more Trumpian than the others. (Shivers!)

But I hark back to simpler days when satire was meant to be satire, not prophesy:
Tom Lehrer: Be Prepared (studio solo) (1953) - YouTube (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj2lK-ey4jmAhWquFkKHcddBpYQyCkwAHoECAwQBQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DgkrheaWuShU&usg=AOvVaw2pMyhiGJl8ybhvYRmSwwgY)

Dear Tor, I'd like to give some advise on the links you post.
Hidden in your link is the Youtube link but mostly it consists of Google's personal profiling and profile cross referencing information.
Everytime you see an "&" in a link, it is followed by the name of a variable and a value.

Your link from Reply#407 is:
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj2lK-ey4jmAhWquFkKHcddBpYQyCkwAHoECAwQBQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DgkrheaWuShU&usg=AOvVaw2pMyhiGJl8ybhvYRmSwwgY

I will not click on such a link if I'm aware of it.

A 'save' Youtube link should look like "www.youtube.com?v=" or "www.youtu.be?v=" followed by 11 alphanumerical characters.

Hi wdmn, you posted very nice music I think :).

You are not alone in feeling like giving up. I have an increasing amount of thoughts about ending my life soon. The world is a worsening hell to me and to the degrading living nature around here, and I am under high tech attack for almost two years now with increasing severity (and nobody believes me of course).

But I am alone without contacts (i.e. people you know you can call or visit). You likely aren't. I would like to advise you to use your contacts or find people who share your troubles. Highly preferably in real life communication. If the troubles are 'our future' then you should be able to find many like minded people. Be humble, open and honest.
I want to wish all good people strength in these extreme times. And send you hugs.

Could you expand on the bolded?
I occasionally find high tech baffling, often frustrating, but can't say I've experienced an "attack".


Your communications pass through the internet apparently unscathed & you appear to be fully cognisant of other's postings, at least on this forum.


What's the meaning of a "high tech attack", and what are the effects of being under high tech attack for 2 years?

Thanks Terry :).

Nothing to do with the Internet.
Mainly to do with bio-active volatile organic compounds and noxious gasses is my guess but I hardly know anything about (bio)chemistry. I guess I'm perhaps perceived as a danger by some powerful people/organisations. I don't know. I learned a lot by analysing/'re-engineering' their methods/tech as far as my information goes. I'm not ill. At least, not yet, but this cannot be good.
I can and like to expand on this by PM because maybe I can learn a bit and maybe another brain sees a solution. I am almost desperate because I don't know how I can live on like this.

Big money business
Take what they can
Always for a profit
Never for the consumer
Using all tricks
Using to trap
Taking all for money
For their personal gain
Corporation pull-in
Corporation pull-in
The rich get rich
The poor stay poor
Working hard
All for nothing

Part of the lyrics because well they are not easy to make out if you are not used to the style.

I had this 400 house paper round and i would get extra cents for folders so around this time of the year it would go up to 7 of them and i would put on the World Downfall album and fold to the music...job done in record time.  :)
