Does this count as trolling?

Meet the new music teacher.

The hills are alive, with the sound of BRAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPBAPT


If we are putting everything on the teachers back, let's make them responsible to get rid of Trump too!

Two dislikes for "I love Rock n' Roll" and "Cum On Feel the Noize". Looks like we got some sad Folk Music lovers in the crowd.

No worries, I give you a hair metal ballad.


Another song I remembered while sitting on the John.

Remember that one - great song. Sort of a one hit wonder though.

Another one, this time I was drifting off to sleep when I remembered this minor hit:


The older I get, the more I prefer McVie over Nicks.

Women got so pissed off at Chris Isaak for singing those lyrics in 1990, guys all pretty much thought oh hey that's a cool tune.

Dreamsville is a Henry Mancini composition that got showcased originally as part of the Peter Gunn compilation album. The television show was noted for containing a lot of cool jazz with each episode.

Ana Vidovic plays Asturias by Isaac Albéniz



How young and beautiful she is as well as accomplished on classical guitar.

This is an extraordinary effort on Edgar Winter’s part. To pull this song off on synth, sax, and timbale. You see he enlarged the arrangement to give himself time to slip between instruments.


Extremely hard to duplicate the original synth sounds because that was done on an ARP 2600 before they had program memories that you can save and recall. The synth was tweaked like crazy to get all those interesting sounds in the original hit. I heard this live before, never like the record, but never quite this good either. How can you change synth sounds mid-song without being able to recall saved programs? —tweak and press buttons, wow, never quite the same results. I’m sure he is emulating the old synth with a modern substitute but still, never quite the same on anything.

You know the studio version was really thrilling, but people just don’t understand all that goes into that stuff, it’s like rocket science really.

These horn players are mostly meeting in sections in their apartments where the neighbors are probably complaining about their noise. Hahaha Some of them have home studios. All home recordings mixed together to make a big band.

But

Together, thanks to the internet and their own determination to do something cool, they made a great, great recording that you should listen to all the way through. They have made a lot of recordings, but this one is a big arrangement of When You Wish Upon A Star.

I don't know why, of all the things going on in that song, but I love the sound of that snare drum.

FYI, the thread is what you're listening to this evening, not morning ;)

Been on a grunge kick lately. Not sure if this song wails or whales.

That's the way "Hurdy Gurdy Man" makes me feel, too. A local audiophile likes to play Donovan records in vinyl as demos. The sound quality is surprisingly good because they were mastered well, but the songs seem stranger to me now than when I first heard them.

You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
