Found some music that fills your sails? Share it here. Post links!

My inspiration for starting this thread began at The Huffington Post which has an article on Natalie Merchant's latest project, Leave Your Sleep.

Here's a taste: Nursery Rhyme of Innocence and Experience

Here is a fascinating interview with her on this project: LINK.

I picked up her House Carpenter's Daughter a few months ago, and became quickly spellbound.

Here's my favorite track on that collection: Crazy Man Michael... hauntingly beautiful. It's a cover of an old Fairport Convention piece.

Okay... watchya got?

No, I don't think so. That has a specific focus. This doesn't.

It takes a truly charitable person to extend a hand to the poor and feel no charity whatsoever in doing so.

Music has always been my inspiration ... and education. For example this one:

For me it depends on which end of the soul I am filling...

When I am upbeat and hopeful....a few songs come to mind immediately...

Don't Change by INXS
Entre Nous by Rush
Inside by Jethro Tull

When I am contemplating injustice or feeling a bit down....

Watermelon in Easter Hay by Frank Zappa
More Than This by Roxy Music
Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles

Music is such a big part of my life it is nearly impossible to compress it down to anything coherent and list-worthy...these just came to mind pretty quick.

Lately I have been absorbed in the Raising Sand cd by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, which came out a few years ago....I really like it...their voices blend in a peculiarly good way.

I would like to share few.

The first is a song by bass player Victor Wooten called, "I saw God". I think you may find the message appealing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_h9eQ15CIs

The second may come as a shocker to some on this forum but I find this song to be one of the most touching I have ever herd. Everything Dies by Type O Negative. Just listen for a few and let the song kick in.

Anything by Bill Douglas is great as well. Deep Peace is amazing.
I also enjoy Kai Eckhardt's bass playing as well.

Wow Neo...that brought back strong memories of riding in my parent's 1970's era Opel listening to AM radio. It was a time when the phone rang, it was the ONE on the wall in the kitchen and the only sense of privacy one got while talking was if nobody was in the room, or if you could stretch the cord to the next room. If nobody was there to answer, it just rang until the caller gave up. Star Wars was new. Michael Jackson was still pretty much a kid. I can see myself wearing brown plaid Sears Toughskins jeans and my faithful Converse Chuck Taylors on my feet. Nike's first big shoe, The Cortez, was just coming out. Fleetwood Mac and Elton John were making soundtracks that documented the crumbling of American/Western ideals. We were just beginning to see the real troubles on the horizon of our dependence on Oil. When we turned on the TV, there were 3 local stations (NBC, ABC, and CBS affiliates) and a few VHF stations, reception dependent on aerial antennas, that had the really cool programming like reruns of Batman, Looney Toons, Star Trek, and maybe on Saturday night, Space 1999. Cars were as big as tanks, were made of "Detroit Iron", got 10 miles to the gallon if you were lucky, and started rusting the day you bought them. Seat belts were optional, at least in usage. Newspapers were relevant. Calculators were terribly expensive. The cutting edge video game was Pong.

On warm summer days...moms kicked their kids out the door in the morning, called the kids in for a bit of lunch, and then kicked them back out until dinner...not that any kicking was required, who wanted to sit in the house all day when the sun was shining, the air was warm, and the whole world was waiting?

Hey JJ,

I like your avatar. :D

I actually bought the whole "Space 1999" series. It's actually funny watching the 70's idea of the future. Bell-Bottoms never went out of style, and "The Computer" didn't have a monitor.

The theme song was kind of strange, maybe it's available on You Tube but I don't have time to look right now.

Now here's an unconscious "coincidence". The date the moon was blown out of orbit was September 13th 1999. Which is off by 2 days and 2 years from a real disaster.

Just a couple of thoughts, don't want to go too far off topic. :wink:

I knew you would appreciate it!

I do love the fact that our ideas about the future can, at times be so wrong, and yet at times be so right. Sometimes I still ask myself....what are the damned flying cars like the ones on the Jetsons? :lol:
