When reading on a Saturday morning whilst Pink Floyd's "The Wall" is playing on vinyl.
"We don't need no education" , as we have it already, might deter you from reading on AW. " Comfortably Numb" used to be how my feet would get before I invested in a small heater up here in my top floor study, and of course we really ought to "Run like Hell" from quite a few posts on here and on occasion ask, "Is there anybody out there."
I used to listen to music when working, Floyd, Camel,Genesis were popular alongside REM, Crowded House and a few others, though for some reason I could not work to Yes and ELP, but after a time I found music started to grate when working so moved on to the boxed set HHGTTG radio broadcasts and Radio 4.
I wonder if there is a consensus of both artists and their music accountants work to or if it is all age driven and we resonate with particular years of our lives re musical attachments?
For instance with Pink Floyd I tend to listen to Meddle, Dark Side, Wish you were Here and The Wall, the others both before and after tend to not get airtime (The observant might note I am not a great fan of Animals), Genesis tends to be Lamb, Selling England, Trick of Tail, Then there were Three and Duke and whilst I have the earlier albums for both they get little airtime.
There is certainly a 70s emphasis in what I mainly play which covers the years from my being 10 to my being 20, whilst I have plenty of 60s music from Beatles/ Stones/ Beach Boys et al maybe my affinity to the 1960s is more driven by it being the background radio soundtrack to the 1970s. In the 1970s I experienced the music first hand but in the 1960s, whilst I was alive music was more secondhand. (Toys being more important to me in the 1960s)
So- what are other people's go to music and why do you think you gravitate to the artist/period/ particular albums?
Test post as my reply to thread is not appearing
I see it :)
My post that went astray
I am more inclined to Dark Side than The Wall.
Marillion were kind enough to me to allow me guest tickets for doing their MTD software when they played a gig in Birmingham in November. That was not something I expected when I started reading the HMRC documentation.
In the early 1980s I was a drummer in a prog rock band, but have more moved into Jazz since the 2000s (keyboards rather than drums).
However, I don't tend to listen to music when I am working.
youre all meddling
Apparently we’re all deadly silent in the office, so Mrs ALISK has bought a radio, from which I have been banned from choosing the station.
I am now reduced to only listening to Absolute Radio, Radio 4 and sometimes Radio Scotland (For Off the Ball)
Absolute Classic Rock all the working day for me.
I always start the day, with a visit to The Archers.
I think I’ve done it, for the last fifteen or so years.
That and Ken Bruce. On Radio 2.
Music is a much underrated element of life
What time do you get up the Archers is on 2pm
I find Deep House does the trick.
For those of a certain age who remember Radio Luxembourg can listen to the talented icons of that station such as Mike Read, Tony Prince, the 'Kid' Jensen, Emperor Rosco, as they are still strutting their stuff on UnitedDJ's
I was reading about Rosko yesterday. Mr Pasternak going strong living in London and Paris
Thank you Jennifer i hadn't come across that site before
I would recommend listening to Radio Caroline online.
I was named after radio Caroline!
And Radio Caroline was named after Caroline Kennedy, JFK's daughter.
Radio is a very unusual name
My wife asked me if I could stop singing Oasis songs.
I said maybe.
