Now? As in right now, as I sit here typing this post? Only the click-clack sound of the keyboard as I type.

In general? Well, I've been on a Beatles kick ever since I took that History of Rock 'n' Roll class. Still working on my collection, though. Only have five albums.

I'm also into instrumental and musical soundtracks. Particularly contemporary (80's to present day) musicals. Any pre-80's musical that catches my ear tends to fall into the rock opera category (such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Tommy, and Hair).

Once I get the budget, I intend to expand my music collection to include a bit more alternative and folk rock. (This is, of course, in addition to completing my Beatles collection.)

I currently listen to my Manowar albums (not at the same time) and the moaning of my power pack exhaust

@V ah, yes I also have all Rhapsody albums, very nice but kitschy fantasy mental; SotEL II is really a bit to kitschy for my taste

Ah yes, the self-proclaimed "Kings of Metal". *I listen to them quite often.

But not today, I played a Rhapsody CD on the way to work. *(Symphony of the Enchanted Lands II)



EDIT: Added 'self-proclaimed' ;)

Electric Six's "High Voltage." *It's on my driving playlist right after Smokey and the Bandit's "East Bound and Down."

*Hits skip back twice*

There we go.

I wrote new lyrics that have to do with Xykon's expedition to Azure city from the Hobgoblin valley. *It took about an hour, after I was running through the art thread, and came across a pic of Xykon and co. as a band. It got me thinking: what songs in my library sound like they could be sung in that scene? No trumpets or flutes, so there went half my funk and disco. Aerosmith, maybe, but some things were too complex for 2 guitars, a soloist, some drums, and three backup singers. I finally found one that not only sounded simple enough to work with the setup, but actually worked into the plot.

The Xykon Mix:

East bound and down, loaded up and marchin',
we're gonna do what they say can't get by.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch the villain fly.

Keep your feet hard on the path, no time for coffee breaks!
Let it all hang out 'cause we gotta plan to make!
The Azure gate's all for the claimin' and the guards all need some maimin'.
And we'll have it all no matter what it takes.

East bound and down, locked-loaded and rollin',
we're gonna strike from both land and the sky.
We've got armies of minions that we need to sacrifice.
I'm east bound, just watch the villain fly.

(Instrumental Bridge)

East bound and down, busy zombifyin'
we're gonna rule earth, for the end is nigh.
We've got Redcloak on bass and Dark Creature on the drums.
Hey roaches! Let's watch the villain fly!

The Order's got some magic, and Greenhilt's game is on.
He aint gonna rest 'til you've been pwned.
So you got to smite 'im and you got to curse 'im,
you got to keep that plot hook turnin'.
Just get the gate down now and unleash hell!

East bound and down, loaded up and marchin',
we're gonna do what they say can't get by.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch the villain fly.

East bound and down, loaded up and marchin',
we're gonna do what they say can't get by.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch the villain fly.

I am a geek, even among geeks.

I have the entire collection of Beethoven concerti, as performed by Alfred Brendel and the Chicago Symphony. I adore it. Now that good weather has arrived I open my windows and play it to the entire neighborhood.

Last year I was very, very fortunate (and subsequently very, very broke) to hear Brendel play on opening night at the Luzern Summer Music Festival. You could hear people crying during the second movement, he played it so sensitively.

My other favorite recording is Queens' A Night at the Opera. This year my big concert expenditure was to see Queen in concert; and once again I was treated to a concert hall full of teary people as Brian May led the audience in "Love of My Life" as a tribute to Freddie. It was beautiful.

That's what I listen to most these days, I reckon. Alfred and Freddie and their respective bands.

Wow. Dropkick Murphys was in the CD player on the way home from work, and once I got on the Computer, I put on...

*drumroll*

FLOGGING MOLLY!!!

McBish, if you are into the Irish themed music as such, I suggest you check out Gaelic Storm.

Style wise, they sit about here realtive to the other previously mentioned bands in the musical spectrum:

Traditional Irish Tunes
Gaelic Storm
Flogging Molly
Dropkick Murphys
Hardcore Punk

Most recent music listened to was...

Some song I can't remember the name of by Immaculate Machine. (sort of rock-y)
International Dateline by Ladytron. (weird electronica)
And... Pyrite Pedestal by Pretty Girls Make Graves. (punk)

I love my obscure bands. ;D

At this very moment? Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees, f00.

In general, I'll listen to almost anything so long as it has some kind of quality.

Right now I have a few artist kicks I'm on... The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Fiery Furnaces, Jade Leary, Le Tigre, Spoon...

More 'conventional' band would be Snow Patrol, Folk Implosion... uh... I can't think of many others that I listen to.

Electric Six's "High Voltage."

Anything like the AC/DC song?

To answer the thread, my playlist went from "Holy Diver" by Dio to "Days Go By" by Dirty Vegas while I am typing.

My playlist is alphabetical.

I think I was wearing my Gaelic Storm shirt when I wrote that. For anyone who likes Gaelic Storm I also suggest a band I saw this St. Patricks day Rising Gael. And does anyone have an opinion of Off Kilter, I have heard of them but never heard them.

Old AC/DC song form 1978, pre-Back in Black.

Ok, the song title is "Danger, High Voltage!", pretty good for techno. At least he says "High Voltage!" just like Bon Scott did.

I accidentally downloaded the Lnkin Park song of same name. Blech.

EDIT: Staying with thread, we have moved on to Blue Man Group here.

*thumbs up for the Gaelic Storm shirt*

*adds Rising Gael to list of bands to check out*

--Right now I'm listening to a band Called Jucifer, seems pretty cool. I got a free copy of one of their CD's for fixing their RV & trailer.

Listening to a bunch of RHCP at the moment. Their new single Dani California is amazing! Think funk, rock and Lynard Skynard ;D Fruciante, has a nice solo while Anthony's singing has continued to improve. Flea and Chad are solid as usual.

I just turned off "Drunken Lullabies" by Flogging Molly, but I've also been listening to WAAAAAAAAAAY too much Streetlight Manifesto. Their new CD is coming out any day now, and I'm getting really impatient... ::) ;D

"One-Winged Angel", AC version. Electric guitars and latin chorus, anyone?

I just switched over to something lighter before I started reading this. Statix-X's Anything but This now. It looks like I'm the only metalhead here?

Oh, and Rising Gael people... Is that a Madison group? If I remember correctly, half of my gaming group here hangs out with people from Rising Gael. Or I could just be confused, thats not my kind of music. But that name sounds very familiar, it seems like they had a cd release a couple months ago, and I was invited to the after party.

Eh. I love the original. The remix made me shrug.
See the Dear Friends concert. It will change you life. ;)

Yeah. They were near me, but the tickets were like $180. So, naturally, I didn't go. THen I checked the site a few weeks later and they were playing shows in other states for ten bucks.

Hey, Dark Lotus, I'm here for ya. I have a Static-X comp in my stereo right now, it's the best to paint to. I'm into Type-O Negative, Slipknot, (older) Metallica, A Perfect Circle, Tool (the words Maynard and God are pretty well interchangeable with me), Godsmack, (older) Staind, uhm...what else...Cannibal Corpse, yeah, the heavier the better, but I will literally listen to anything. I had a 5 disc changer going once with Static X, Maroon 5, Tsunami Bomb (girly punk band), Toby Keith, and Type-O. I'm an equal opportunity listener. ;D

A little bit of this, a little bit of that: but most recently

My Bloody Valentine and
Dean Martin and
Eydie Gorme(with the little accent thing on the last e)

but, sadly, used the recovery discs on my laptop and everything is gone. :(

*sniff* I love you guys! No, seriously--always happy to find new Queen fans.

Oh, and Bunny--don't feel bad. I have a degree in music AND a degree in physics, so I'm pretty much a geek any way you slice it. Hold your head high, and rock out! (btw, I think I like Queen II better than A Night at the Opera, but it's a very close call)

Also, honorary hooray to Jibar--I also love Crowded House, and very few people I know have heard of them.

Currently listening to Metric's "Grow Up and Blow Away."

Currently, everything going into my stereo is jazz or jazz/funk (with a bit of jamband). Brad Mehldau is pretty ridiculous, as well as older Red Garland and Coltrane. Galactic is in rotation, Phish is around somewhere, and I believe I've even got a Dave Matthews live album in the rotator.
