If you were to choose three songs (any) to describe yourself. Which would you choose? Here's mine

"The Fool on The Hill" Beatles

"I'm No Hero" 5 Finger Death Punch

"Desperado" Eagles

I wouldn’t choose it to describe myself, but I like anything by the Eagles. 🙂👍

Same here! However, I've heard "Hotel California" more times than I'd care to...

I’ve got some old cassettes and CD’s which I haven’t listened to for ages, thanks for reminding me. I particularly like Desperado, Tequila Sunrise and One of these nights. 🙂

Cassettes👍👍👍So have I. And VHS videos.

I lost my Eagles cassette, and my David Bowie one at least it doesn't matter so much now that we've got Spotify with easy access to all music

We’re spoilt for choice now Roxylox, there’s also YouTube which I use. 🙂

Love the Eagles

As my name is Maria it would have to be 'How do you Solve a Problem like Maria' from the Sound of Music- well that's what my brother would say 😂

🤣

I prefer the West Side Story one.

I'm just waiting for Bazzak to comment 😁

With a screen name of Rschmaninov, I would think it would be Piano Concerto No.2.

That’s my favourite piece of classical music. 🙂👍

And mine!!!!

Yes I forgot MadBunny/Maria yours too! 🙂👍🎹

And Brief Encounter my favourite film.

Yes, I remember that. 🙂 🚞

...beautiful piece of music. Rsvhmsninov actually wrote it after he came out of a deep depression as a way of celebrating his recovery. I've heard it in figure skating quite often.

MadBunny in reply to ChavivLeon

I didn't know that.

He was an interesting person. I also like Piano Concerto no. 2 by Dimitri Shostakovitch.

I like that one also. It's not played that often. People seem to like his symphonies more.

I love it. 🙂🙂

Yes I like it too.

in reply to MadBunny

Try Bruch’s Violin Concerto. Happy listening.

MadBunny in reply to

Yes I like that too. And Tchaikovsky's violin concerto and 1st piano concerto .

in reply to MadBunny

Good for him but maybe not you? But it is easy to get carried away by music that resonates😊

I love Shos...(can't spell it) 2nd Waltz too. Have a look at YouTube for some great videos of it. The gorgeous Sean Bean is in one of them :D Didn't know he could dance. :D

Thank you hypercat, I will. 🙂👍

Ooh I'll have to look for that. I like Sean Bean. A fellow Sheffield United supporter, too 😁

🤣🤣I found the video clip of the waltz. Loved it thanks. Was it from Anna Karenina?

hypercat54 profile image
hypercat54 in reply to MadBunny

Not sure as I haven't seen that film. He is actually in 2 of the videos there. One is shorter and is mainly him and a woman, and the other is a large group and you catch a glimpse of him a couple of times. That is amazing though.

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to hypercat54

I'll have to look it up. Well I suppose I should try to get some sleep. 'Night. Enjoy dreaming of Sean 😁🤗

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no. 2 ?🙂

Well, one would be Box of Rain by Grateful Dead but only because I’m playing it at the moment and I love it. Unfair to start a music post when I’m off to bed. Early shift tomorrow😔

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to MadBunny

Not really but I am sometimes in the mood for certain songs by them. You won’t believe me if I tell you as I write I am listening to the Butthole Surfers. I have eclectic tastes. I should also be sleeping but I as you know can’t resist any posts about music😊

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to Alb2

Never heard of them I'm in bed with classic FM on the radio at the moment 😁

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to MadBunny

No one has unless they are weird like me. But then I am a Frank Zappa fan😊

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to Alb2

My mate, who's a Zappa fan will probably know them. I'll ask him

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to MadBunny

Ask if he knows Dogbowl. Then I will be impressed😉

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to Alb2

I will msg him tomorrow

I will have to pursue this conversation another time as sleep beckons. I could wax lyrical all night. Absolutely love Zappa. Such a talented bloke who told it like it was😊

metalminded in reply to Alb2

I’m not a huge Zappa fan but some songs are just great. Dinah Moe Hum 😂No doubt the man had serious talent!!

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

Dinah Mo Hum is great. I think he was a genius because he saw music in everything, even thought vacum cleaners create their own symphony😂

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

Absolutely. The first time I heard it I want sure what I heard, then played it on Apple Music and blew me away 😂

Roxylox profile image
Roxylox in reply to MadBunny

I would guess you're more of my era then

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

I haven’t listened to them in a long time! I’m going to play some at work today ☺️

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

I hope it brings you much joy😊

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

It did! It was Independent Worm Saloon. I can remember the first time I heard it on an underground metal station when it came out.

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

You must let me know what you played. Today during my work break, I was in the mood for Silver Jews and the late, great David Berman with a little Jeffrey Lewis added in for good measure😊

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

I’m currently listening to a new band for me and so far I like it. When the gloom becomes sound by Tribulation.

I listened today to: Butthole Surfers, Vanilla Fudge, The Guess Who, Traffic, Black Sabbath, The Doors, and Stephen Stills.

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

Not Dogbowl? Haha. The Fugs? But your choices for today were excellent. I was playing Traffic just the other day👍

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

Now that you’ve seen some my taste in music, I’d love suggestions.

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

Brilliant. I shall have a think and get back to you

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

Thank you!

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

Try Sleep Dirt by Frank Zappa for starters. Only because I’m playing it now😂I will have a think but did consider perhaps The Brian Jonestown Massacre? Bit left field

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

Thank you. I'll give them both a listen!

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

Free. Fire and Water. I can’t belief how young Paul Kossoff was when he played guitar on this.

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

That's one I have and know very well!

Alb2 profile image
Alb2 in reply to metalminded

Just listened to it again. It’s really good and never seems to age. What about early Hawkwind and Gong. Familiar with them

metalminded profile image
metalminded in reply to Alb2

I am familiar with Hawkwind, I like a lot of their material. I picked up, some time ago, The Chronicle of the Black Sword and I love it! I have also listened to Gong, though they never really caught on with me. I love old 70's prog, especially bands I've only discovered in the last 10 years or so. Late 60's and early 70's psych is great too. I remember I found this YouTube video that was a few hours long of nothing but live Krautrock from the 70's killer stuff!

My Kind of Town. I grew up and currently work in Chicago.

Isinatra profile image
Isinatra in reply to MadBunny

Sorry so long getting back to you, M. I read the story of white rabbit. Even though it was recorded during the times of the sixties drug culture, Gracie slick the recording artist said it wasn’t written with drugs in mind. Open to interpretation. I like the story sans drugs. ❤️🏄‍♀️

Lazaruslong in reply to Isinatra

It was based upon Alice in Wonderland and more about the issues ( then and now) of reaching puberty...as I recall.

Dirty Dishes by Scotty McCreery

Beautiful Crazy by Luke Combs

Holy Ground by Desz

Fool on the hill sounds about right for me too. Also All You Need Is Love by the Beatles as I don't have any.

oh gosh I would definitely have to say Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes. My grandpa used to sing it about me. the first line is "She aint got no money, clothes are kind of funny, her hair is kind of wild and free" lol

Lazaruslong profile image
Lazaruslong in reply to

Rumor had it at the time, that ROSEMARY is a DOG 😃

Depeche mode, Enjoy the silence. Iron Maiden, The Trooper and Linkin park, In the end. I have a varied taste in music but rock orientated.

Great choices, but what an impossible question! I'd go for Sarah Jane Morris' I am A Woman, Love Me Love My Dog, Peter Shelley and Golden Brown, The Stranglers which is imprinted on my soul. Desperado is a favourite and makes me weep, once in a while. Love the Eagles but I Can't Tell You Why x PS I give in - need to add 'Wouldn't Treat A Dog' - The Hamsters version for any of you that know it but Bobby Bland if you don't!

1) Doctor My Eyes- Jackson Browne2)Bird on a Wire- Leonard Cohen

3) Forever Young-Bob Dylan

Roxylox in reply to Dahlia7

The Forever Young title is a great one to describe yourself by. I would hope to retain a fairly youthful attitude.Mind you when I start trying out the moves to a lively song - rock e.g my teenager and young adult children get sooooo embarrassed and make me stop

Time may be passing us by but our spirits remain young. Rock on!

'Misunderstood'. by The Animals

'I Get Knocked Down, but I Get up Again '

'The Walk of Life' by Dire Straits

I'm not sure which songs would describe me exactly, but "The Fear" by Pulp has long been a personal anthem, certainly a part of the soundtrack to my sorry, neurotic existence.
