Oh, this might be a very embarrassing discussion for me. In the past few years I have fallen completely out of touch with what's new. Well, other than teen pop music, since I have a 13 year old in the house.<g> A few weeks ago my daughter was listening to the radio. (a "teen" station.) I heard a song, (an old one) re-done in reggae and really liked it! I like reggae, but I wonder if I was first drawn to it because I knew the words.<g> I then found out that the artist isn't actually new at all, it's just that I have been in a time warp or something.<g>

Anyway, the artist is Shaggy, the song is Angel. I bought the CD, and I'm really enjoying it.

Today I've been listening to compilation CD's. It was one of those days when I wanted a little taste of everything. :-)

LOL Addie, it's sorta like when my son says "Hey mom, listen to this cool song" When I start singing the lyrics he looks puzzled and asked how I know it when I don't listen to his music. I hate breaking to him that the song was popular back when I was growing up<g>

Listening to The Platters

Red face Underwhelmed

<font size=4>I thought Coldplay sounded like Radiohead on tranquilizers.

And looked haughty...now, people who know me may find that hard to believe...that haughty turns me off. ;-)

And guess what, Addie....SHAGGY IS ON SNL TOMORROW

Or, erm, today.

'night!!</font>

Splattercell is another group? <sigh> I'm with Addie really, I know almost nothing about what's cool.

Last week a radio newsperson phoned me asking me to make a comment on Eminem (on behalf of a women's group I'm in). Needless to say, I didn't know enough about said person. The radio newsperson was not impressed with me and decided to phone someone who'd heard some of the "songs".
Right now? Mary Chapin Carpenter is playing

ROFL DLC!!! We never cease to amaze our kids. <g>

Thanks Liam! I had known, but forgotten that Shaggy was on SNL tonight! Luckily, because of my daughter, I was able to catch the premiere of his video on MTV yesterday. I'm not all that impressed with the video, but I do like the song. And, he was funny when interviewed.

My daughter's comment. "Oh, he's OLD."

Yeah, one foot in the grave. What is he, 30? 35? ;-)

<font size=4 color=navy>Yep, Splattercell is sort of an electronic trance-type band. A guy from another VC I'm in sent me a CD-R of his "Best of 2000" (which included Coldplay, BTW)

I think my favorite on that CD was Porcupine Tree.</font></font>

<font size=3>Well, two really <font size=5 color=orange>WONDERFUL<font size=3 color=black> bands are <a href="http://www.abovearcana.com">Above Arcana</a> and <a href="http://www.halo-effect.net">Halo Effect</a>. Yeh, yeh, I know I'm plugging my boyfriend's bands. In all honesty though they are very good. <br>
<font size=-1>Or I wouldn't be so nice and let him sleep after spending the entire night putting songs together with his friend OOOOOR spending all of our money on band equipment, etc etc GROWL<font size=3><br>
My favorites aren't exactly brand new, but the best bands/cds Who else do I listen to...

Jason Falkner - amazing guy with a sense of humor and a lot of talent. Plays multiple instruments and is the sole musician on his cd's. Used to be in Jellyfish. You might think he's cute

A Perfect Circle - Very emotional, heavy/alternative.

Local H - Total fun band, sense of humor, kind of pop/heavy if you can imagine it. I'd go with "Pack up the Cats"

Tool - Who YEEEEEHHH is coming out with a new album in April. They've passed the 3 cd curse (you know how most amazing groups phase out by their third album?) so this one should be really out of this world. They had a mini-cd that accompanied a video earlier this year, but it was more a single with a lot of live/cover tunes on it.

Who else, it's so hard. No one really good is coming out...or maybe I'm just bitter because we're getting a PA instead of a house.

Cool

(((((MusicLovers)))))

I'm with Addie. Just can't keep up. Give me a good guitar player, say, Clapton, and I'm a happy woman. (((((Addie)))))

BUT, lo and behold, I saw Shaggy on SNL last night! And I didn't turn away. Seemed like a cross between rap and reggae. And being a child of the Sixties, I especially adored the drummer. <g>

Les, weren't you the one who liked Judy Garland? I bought a CD tonight, The Best of Judy Garland-The Millennium Collection. It's a cool CD.

I also bought Luciano Pavarotti, Classical flutes, and Handel's Water Music Suite....what can I say, I was in a weird music mood, lol!


LOL Addie, they never cease to amaze us either do they!
