Katy Perry's Firework. I'm seriously hooked on it - kept seeing bits on the Wii advert for the dance move game & decided to download it and now it ends up repeated multiple times! J-Lo's 'On The Floor' likewise. Not normally my usual cup of tea but......

... classic sound from a classic band.

That reminds me of the time I took the wife for an Indian meal in Teddington and Rick Parfitt was at the next table. Fun night that was as she spent the whole evening ear-wigging him and ignoring me, turned out he was discussing fridges as he needed a new one, rock and roll or what!

We went to see the Quo at Brighton last November - we were seated upstairs at the back looking over a  sea of grey/white hair.  Joe Brown was support.  A really good evening.

Policemen And Pirates...

...the best song ever witten by Ocen Colour Scene. It is an amazing song. And up in my top 5 of songs. Up there with Sympathy For The Devil by Rolling Stones, Chemistry by Semisonic, Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional and Hey Now by Augustana but Policeman And Pirates could be my favorite.

very unappreciated drummer

I like them all ...

... it is how they blend together that makes such beautiful music, but the electro/acoustic guitar is a firm favourite.

If I could have any one in the world I want he one like Jeff Mangum is playing in my earlier post, it has such a wonderful rich tone:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQ1B0FoQhrU 

Although I have been looking at one similar to Johnny Flynn's resonator, I posted links with it on before, both are good, but the top one is a wonderful track

http://bandstandbusking.com/johnny-flynn/2011/05/22/ 

I thoroughly recommend a browse round the bandstand busking site, there are some fantastic young musicians on there.

If I could play any instrument though I think it would be the trumpet. When I hear it in this track, which is from one of the best films scores ever (next to Rocky Horror) and compliments the action perfectly, the hairs on my arms always stand on end and I get a shiver down my spine (comes in just after 1:40 and at 3:57). I gets right into your sould, and builds and builds such intense emotion.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmdAsL1n6q4

Although, there is something hypnotic about these instruments

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrlqQ1_vZVE 

I've just realised where Kitty, Daisy and Lewis got their inspiration, just slightly slower! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xermLG25fo

But then, the lowly harmonica is a powerful little instrument and highly portable!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxW3Ed7GrhQ&feature=relmfu

 I think in the Words thread Eclectic was there to describe my musical tastes!

 

Bandstand new to me

Will enjoy looking and listening here - but have only discovered Youtube since your posts so not much work will be going on I guess.

You are right about Youtube, I have some wonderful and unexpected musical journies, but it does not help the billing!

This is one of my favourite horsey songs. I always dreamed of riding (western style) down Monument Valley in Utah. I'm a sucker for the old westerns, but one of my favourite films is City Slickers.  

western is fun Shirley

you will have to visit us - we have western championships each year - quarter horses are even better to watch live

Ohhhhhhh ... you have touched upon something I would have loved to have a go at!

My TB mare would have been perfect for a novice like me, she could turn on a sixpence, she could be straight into canter from a standstill and stop just as quickly (I discovered that the first time I rode her!!!). She could RUN backwards at speed (also discovered the first time I rode her). Alas, she wasn't very brave, but she was very intelligent and once I got her 'on side' she learned really quickly, and I could place her within an inch of where I wanted her to be, even at full gallop.

... but Quarterhorses are amazing, they have endless stamina, and they are TOUGH!

I am seriously tempted to attend the show. Newark isn't far from us.

Damn it ... hubbie will have no choice in the matter, we'll be there!

Is it the reining classes on the Friday that do the barrel racing?

ShirleyM's picture

Thanks OGA :)

I've just finished watching your links. I remember every one of those as if it were yesterday.

I feel thoroughly spoiled by you and Marion posting horsey tunes & piccy's ... but I like it :)

Reining

Marion Hayes | | Permalink

My arab was trained to rein and was far more responsive than the dressage horses are - and the western reinback is amazing compared to ours/

Not sure about the barrels -  will find out and pm

Always wanted a quarter horse or appaloosa

Have you seen the Appassionata shows? Well worth the visit

My biggest interests nowadays seem to be horses, music (and tax of course!!) 

Marion

Thanks Marion

ShirleyM | | Permalink

I've just watched the video of the Appassionata show. It is the sort of thing I would really enjoy ... but London! I'm not very fond of big towns & cities :(

Thanks for checking the classes, but it looks like we will be there on the Friday. We may just have to go back on the Saturday if we miss something, but we already have plans for the Sunday.

Not just London

Marion Hayes | | Permalink

I saw the show a couple of years ago in Nottingham at the Ice Arena would you believe - closely followed by Dancing in Ice and more recently by Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds - you would like that I think OGA

I dare you to imagine a 20ft Martian, Rhyddian and an Atomic Kitten, fantastic music and light show, all narrated by Richard Burton's head over 30ft tall 

my favourite track is

I quite fancy seeing War of the Worlds, and I'll watch out for the Appassionata appearing a bit north of London :)

You took me right back with that one!

I saw them at the Odeon in Leeds and it was a fantastic night. Another favourite was the Queens Hall where we saw the Animals and they played House of the Rising Sun, which is still a big favourite of mine. I had lots of energy in those days ;)

Get with the happening thing, guys!

I go back almost as far as some of you, but manage find time to hit the current live music scene. Last weekend I went to the Summer Sundae festival in Leicester - a little expensive at £50 for a day ticket, but a very interesting bill that inlcuded Kitty, Daisy & Lewis (overrated, in my view) and McFly! They were very energetic, but I had a sneaking suspicion that with all the running around they were doing, some of their parts were pre-canned. Enough of McFly... I also occasionlly work as an amateur video maker. Here's an example of my work on "Howling" - a great song by the magnificent (and contemporary) Phantom Band:

 

 

NB: It seems a little harder with the new system than with the old, but you can still include working videos. Click the "Disable rich-text" link at the bottom of the Comment box, paste in the Embed code from You Tube, and hopefully, the working video should appeal as it does here. Please check to make sure the screen width is less than 500pixels, though, so as not to break our page. You can adjust the measurements manually to avoid that situation. Happy tracks, peeps!

Here's some good sax for Marion!

One of the icon's of my youth, was a sad day when Poly died, she was really ahead of her time as she really saw where we were going as a society, although I am sure it gave her no comfort!

Exceedingly good taste OGA

Queen and Freddie Mercury are my all time favourites.

or tea time - lol

It's bugging me, now

ShirleyM | | Permalink

The 'exceedingly good taste' reminds me of a comedy scene (was it Monty Python) but I just can't remember who, and it's bugging me that I can't remember :(

But Freddie was sooooo talented. Definitely my breakfast/dinner and tea time favourite.
