since the birds in summer start singing round 5 am over here, never have to listen to an alarm clock  Wink

fired up the hifi and it's playing lou reed, first 'the blue mask' followed by 'ecstasy' (they're stored on a music server, thus i don't have to change cd's any longer).

i like this topic because one can, between computer related stuff, write about something else as well.
so i like to extend it a bit and leaving you every time with a musical tip, this time from northern africa:

led zeppelin, 'any port in a storm' (live). like to hit a certain computer just as hard as john bonham did his drums.

not familiar with so called classical music? try a compilation cd to see whether you'll like it and what.

let me entertain you further with deep purple, from the seventies of course, as i hear them now whilst tinkering with 2011.1 Grin

and did you know the song 'love is all' was made by a former deep purple member?

I have no particular taste in music , pretty much all of it is listenable,and this topic is rich in soon to be played / explored stuff .
Not listening to anything atm , but I loaded some shakira (in spainish ) , and andrea bocelli to the hard drive ( for testing purposes ),and started the morning listening to Jon Schmidt 's new wave classical styled piano music this morning" ,and as I write this I 'm thinking of Corvus Corax - a group of mediaeaval music revivalists.

This is a fun topic. Snce Lisa Marie mentioned Peanuts , :something by Jon Schmidt ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyPDQpel8bI

that's indeed pretty contagious, the way those guys play! that's, imho, also what music should be about: having fun making it.

won't say what i'm listening to now, something with hibernation, but if you like enthusiastic musicians, listen e.g. to this harpist: lavinia meijer (she also knows something about the african harp, called kora.)

Movie sound tracks are a medium rich in music. Foe example , The Fifth Element

Here is a Hungarian opera singer that may surprise you:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPf2ANjUbrY&feature=related ( her name ,I think : Inva Mula )

and here is a russian pop star's take on the same music :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22YCMaAU6Ak, ( Vitas is his name )

again something very impressive, inva mula touching even, especially the first minutes. she's got something in her voice which 'opened' my mind at ones.
like a tone entering a place inside where i normally even can't enter myself.

vitas will take some more time, his voice didn't 'enter' immediately like inva mula's voice did. i first only listened to them while i was typing.

on spliff: it first was the band from nina hagen in the seventies when germany, and therefore berlin, were still split up.
in 1977 i came to know someone from west berlin and thus a lot about how it was to live there.

a bit later lou reed, david bowie and some others went there, and made albums like rock'n roll animal, lodger, low, heroes, chrsitane f. (wir kinder fom bahnhof zoo).

a lot off the songs from spliff are or either just funny, mucking about, offensive to politicians or about berlin after the war (the whole city was gone, literally).
