:)


There are so many songs in the world, Boomer. Among my favorites of late are:

The Long and Winding Road (The Beatles-if you can find a version without Phil Spector's orchestration, though, you're better off. Actually, I've been listening to The Beatles a whole lot lately)

Under Pressure (Queen-kind of sums up my life these days, though I LIVE for the final bridge before the coda!)

Beyond that, well, I mostly listen to classical music (and kind of weird, avant garde stuff at that), and I'm not sure that's what you're looking for.

"The Raggle Taggle Gypsy" from the Chieftains album Further Down the Old Plank Road with Nickel Creek featured in that song.

Well, not an official song, but it's Bowie doing a hilarious bit from the British TV series "Extras". I always get this little tune stuck in my head after I hear it.

Beatles kind of fell from me (I’ve been listening to them for about say the 24 years since I’ve been breathing, but I had a massive queen crush for a while, under pressure still ranks, on my list of greats and I don’t care who knows it

IF you’re into Classical, There was a score to the movie perfume (story of a murderer) that was just remarkable; I haven’t heard one as good since the gattica score, and Oliver schroer’s, Camino album one of my favorite Canadian musicians. But I digress

Bad boomer :( swears he’ll stop pimping music…

Hey don't apologize, Boomer. Pimping music is great. I'm a professional musician and, ironically, don't get to listen to much music for fun anymore. Being a classical musician, I also don't get to extend that much outside my immediate comfort zone (though that's pretty wide) too often, so it's always cool to hear what other people are listening to.

My own classical tastes are in the concert arena rather than film scores. My favorite composer, probably, is Louis Andriessen, who is a Dutch composer whose style merges modernism with minimalism and jazz. Very cool stuff but definitely not for everyone.

The Beatles have been an obsession of mine since I was a little kid. I was born three years after they broke up, so I got into them through my dad, who was a huge fan, though only up till about 1965 or so (ironically, he didn't care for their best stuff, which I think came in '66-69). I'm teaching a theory/history course on them next term, so I've been listening to them almost non-stop for the last few months just trying to put together a listening list in my mind, especially when it comes to some unreleased materials and outtakes from various albums, etc.

Okay, here's a relatively recent (2006) pop song I admire: "Not About Love" by Fiona Apple (so sue me, she's good). Some fine piano playing in that little tune, not to mention a cool arrangement (even if it's not one of her most creative lyrics).

Simple question do you have a my space page thingy or something of the sort.

(I know I’m tragically behind the times, but keep myself here on purpose)

I try to keep myself up to date on all kinds of music, (like I said music man whore), but my job makes me watch many, many, many movies so that is a primary source for me.

A family member (Once or so removed, play’s the harp, she’s been teaching for many years and plays in her city’s symphony orchestra more than a little beautifully. i would share it with you if could figure how to do it with my computer (palms keyboard agrily; wheres the any key!!!)

I’ve tried and continue to try to learn the guitar, but my natural talents lie in different creative endeavors I’m afraid, not that I’m going to stop trying, 30 minutes a day, until one day I’ll actually play chords, but its still good even to play badly (not for my neighbors so much but for me:p) so I’m good, besides before I stop drawing breath I will play the violin, it’s been my oath since I was about 10 and it will happen.

Wish i could share your love the beatles, but when your forced to listen as kid you just rebel naturaly, or at least i do.

Feist's "1 2 3 4" from that iPod commercial really is all that. It's the kind of transcendent pop tune that doesn't come along very often. Sounds like nothing else out there -- non-gratuitous banjo bit and a trumpet solo, are you kidding me? If it sounds good to you, you'll dig the whole album.

And as far as the Bowie song from Extras goes, caution: It'll get stuck in your head and have you snickering all day. Brilliant.

Bowie - Space Oddity, Changes, Let's Dance and Ziggy Stardust
Beatles - Eleanor Rigby (I actually used to know a girl called Eleanor Rigby in a unrelated aside), Help, Strawberry Fields forever and All you need is love
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody, Seven seas of rhye, We will rock you, you're my best friend, good old fashioned loverboy
Kiss - God Gave rock and roll to you, Crazy, Craze Nights and Rock and Roll all Nite
Scissor Sisters - Lovers in the Backseat, Take your Mama, Laura, I can't decide, I don't feel like dancing

and then other random great songs

Jamie T - Sheila
Holloways - Generator
Hoosiers - Worried about Ray
Anything by Mika and Gym class heroes as well

well thats a start, course if we had the time Im sure each of us could produce a list of a few hundred songs at least that should be listened to.

I understand the rebellion over The Beatles. I think that may be why I prefer their stuff AFTER they got turned on to LSD. I wonder if my kids will rebel to it (though I'd like to think we listen to various enough types of music around the house and in the car for them to be exposed to a wide gamut. No death metal or gangsta rap, though, which means they'll probably go for that, or their equivalent, in 15 years).

Anyway, I do have a My Space thingie, though I haven't updated it in a few months. There's some music up on it if you want to check it out: www.myspace.com/armandobayolo. Also, you can go to the American Music Center (www.amc.net) and find me ("Armando Bayolo") on their composers database right there on the main page (you'll have to do a search, though. They have a ton of composers). There's quite a bit more music there than on my My Space page but, like the My Space, I haven't updated it in a while. One of these days my website will finally be finished and I'll have some stuff up there too.

So what do you do in film? I always thought that had I not been a musician I would have gone into some aspect of film making. Oddly enough, though, I've never seriously pursued composing for films and TV, though I wouldn't turn down the right gig if it came down the pike.

Try to overlook that facts that 1) It's a late recommendation, and 2) She's has a lot of the wrong kind of hype around her: Amy Winehouse is REALLY good. The album's an expert homage to Philly soul. Try to get "Rehab" out of your mind and check out "You Know I'm No Good." The album starts off with two upbeat tracks, and most of what remains are slow(er) jams.

Here's one for you: Anyone into MC's Chris and Lars and the J's may dig this cat. He's the foremost (technically, sole) occupant of a genre he calls "sitcomcore." If you can find a better song about Dragnet '87 (aside from "City of Crime"), I'd love to hear about it.

Opeth - The Grand Conjuration

Shadow, welcome to the boards. Glad to see a little metal. I'm clearly partial to thrash, so here's my two cents...

New Exodus is surprisingly good. "The Garden of Bleeding" is my pick.

And I'd be remiss to not mention Destructor's "Skuil Splitter," a power-thrash retro-hesher. http://www.myspace.com/destructor

Neith of which may be your thing if you're into Opeth, but hey.

If metal's not your thing, let's kick it old school with Public Enemy's "Can't Truss It."

Happy Thanxgiving, all.

I haven't heard the new Exodus, but I heard it's good. 3 of my favorite bands are Soilwork (though their new one is kind of a stinker), Nevermore, and Opeth, so that should give you an idea of my tastes. I'll listen to pretty much everything besides country and gangsta rap, both of which do absolutely nothing for me.

Hey. Holidaze is here. If you're tired of the creepy "Hark to the Bells" song and TSO, here's some different holiday tunes for the season.

I'd originally entitled the mix "Fruitcake Weather" as a tip of the hat to Capote's "A Christmas Memory," but I've re-titled it in honor of my all-time favorite GWC re-imagined movie quote. If you're driving, drive careful. Enjoy.


DxMas 8: "...Only, I Didn't Say 'Frak.' "
-------------------------------------------

01. Cathy Saint “Big Bad World”
Old-school girl group. Not really a Christmas song, but it has the word "Christmas" in it.

02. Darlene Love “Marshmallow World”
Motown Xmas. Heck yeah.

03. Bobby Helms “Jingle Bell Rock”
Standard.

04. Cathy Harrington “Sha La La”
New-wavey new classic.

05. No Doubt “Oi! to the World”
Skankin' around the Xmas tree.

06. Ren and Stimpy “Happy Happy Joy Joy”
Not really a Christmas song, but fun nonetheless

07. Scrooged commercials
Audio from Scrooged for holiday programming.

08. La Bottine Souriante, “La Bottine Souriante”
Ties in the #7, Robert Goulet's Cajun Christmas.

09. Johnny Cash with Family and Friends, “Christmas Time’s Comin’ “
Recorded around 1980, the Johnny Cash and Friends Christmas album is, um, really, uh, interesting. And I love Johnny, don't get me wrong.

10. Whiskeytown, “Houses on the Hill”
New alt-country classic.

11. Drive-By Truckers, “Mrs. Claus’ Kimono”
Ditto.

12. Aimee Mann, “Have Yrself a Merry Little Christmas”
Aimee "Magnolia Soundtrack" Mann, also of Til Tuesday fame.

13. Marie-Michelle Desrosiers, “Noël Blanc”
"White Xmas" en Francais.

14. Darlene Love, “White Christmas”
More Motown Xmas. You can't go to the well too often with this one.

15. Dave Brubeck, “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town”
Jazz piano instrumental from the "Take Five" guy. Somewhere out there is a version of "Take Five" that interpolates "We Three King." Finding it is harder than you'd imagine, even with the Google. Anyone know anything about this?

16. Holiday wishes from Coldplay
Coldplay's holiday skit from last year. Not a big Colplay fan, but I thought it would be cool to have them host my mixtape.

17. Fiona Apple, “Waltz”
Not really an Xmas song, but it's Christmas-y, I think.

18. Dave Brubeck, “Silent Night”
More jazz piano.

19. Peggy Lee, “I’ll Be Seeing You”
See #17.

20. Fiona Apple, “Parting Gift” (edit)
See #19.

21. Danny Elfman, “Victor’s Piano Solo”
The wonderful little piano bit from Corpse Bride

22. DJ Shadow, “Midnite in a Perfect World” (edit)
Best. Instrumental. Ever. If you listen to This American Life, you'll recognize it.

23. Vince Guaraldi Trio, “Christmas Time Is Here” (alternate vocal take)
Charlie Brown rulez.

24. Low, “Taking Down the Tree”
Somber little alt-Xmas number.

25. Justin Timberlake, “D**k in a Box” (explicit version)
How could you not include this? "#1, Cut a hole in the box..."

26. Charlie Brown interlude
Audio clip bemoaning commercialization.

27. The Dust Brothers featuring Tyler Durden, “This is Your Life”
Tyler Durden reminds us what the season is NOT about.

Thanks for the kind words. I can do better than this if I think on it, but for now, have you accepted the following into your life...

... Fiona Apple's "Extraordinary Machine" album? (Try the two songs from that Xmas list)

... the great, wide world of Tori Amos B-sides? (including, as long as we're kind of on the subject, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas). Try the "Crucify" EP... it has covers of Zeppelin's "Thank You," Nirvana's "Teen Spirit," and the Stones' "Angie."

And it's not piano-y, but try Ani DiFranco's "Pulse" for a mellow spoken-word piece. Lush acoustic guitar.

Cheers,

I understand with the Apple (Fiona) thing; as a Tori fan, I always viewed her as pretty non-essential. But she really came into her own with that last album.

Adriana, the Buffy Musical rules, by the way. Especially the retro-pastiche of "I'll Never Tell." I don't care what Anya says; it has potential to be a breakaway pop hit.

Two-for today, 'cuz it's important to have alternatives:

The Bangles, "Hazy Shade of Winter"

Lustra, "Scotty Doesn't Know." In honor of the raging Scott Caan/Godfather controversy. In no way an endorsement of pop-punk as a genre. And, tehnically, in Eurotrip, it's performed by Oscar-winner Matt Damon.

I think if Centurions had bands, they'd play metal. Maybe sophisticated hardcore.

Larry-model Cylons would sound like Voivod's "Killing Technology." Later, as they grew, they'd write stuff like "Tribal Convictions" -- http://youtube.com/watch?v=TfpYIPbrcdY

And if the new-school Centurions had a band, it would sound like Converge's "Plagues."

But if Six had a group, it would sound totally different, like Vive La Fete's "Jaloux." Link to video of the song, but embedding is disabled:

--------------------------------------
"Prophecy Theme" by Brian Eno (ambient intro)

"Twist of Cain" by Danzig (evil dark & brilliant)

"The Razor(')s Edge" by AC/DC

"Harvester of Sorrow" by Metallica (change it to "Harbinger of Sorrow")

“Pegasus” by Uli Jon Roth

"Spacelord" by Monster magnet (change the chorus to "Space-Lord Mother-Frakker")

"Hybrid Moment" by the Misfits (or the slightly less harsh cover by No Use for a Name. Melodic old-school punk at its finest)


The Less Heavy Stuff (let’s call it side two)
------------------------------------------
"Lee" by Tenacious D

"Sara Smile" by Hall & Oates (when you sing along, change it to "Kara")

"'Long Come A Viper" by Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks

“Kendra’s Peace” by Pete Kilburn (acoustic guitar)

"Starbuck's Blues" by the Ray Brown Trio

"Father and Son" by Johnny Cash

"Razor Boy" by Steely Dan

“Larry’s World” by Russ Freeman (acoustic guitar instrumental)

"Pegasus" by the Allman Brothers Band

"Here in C.I.C." by Audra
( http://www.galacticawatercooler.com/...c-here-in-cic/ )

“Hats off to Larry” by Del Shannon (rolling credits music)

bonus tracks:

"Tie Me Up" by Mtume (80s funk; get it – “Tigh Me Up”?)

"Tie Up My Hands" by Starsailor (Kind of a downer acoustic number, but it’s a nice one, and it fits. Not strictly applicable, but the "Tigh" plus the name Starsailor" makes it worth checking out.)

"Kendra McCormick " by They Might Be Giants (switch it to "Shaw")

I haven’t actually put this mix together. If someone does take the time to assemble it, please PM me, and I’ll trade you for another mix or two.

Mondays are rough during the best of times. And after the holidays, I always find I need some extra-soothing tunes to help me re-adjust to the grind. Here's part five of a five-disc mix I use to make it through Monday mornings.

Week after week, I found myself reaching for the same tunes, and wasting time swapping out CDs. Finally, I started pulling them together into mixes. And as I came across new tunes, I took note of them and collected more. I'm starting with part five because it has the BSG tie-in, Phillip Glass's "Metamorphosis."

It’s a pretty diverse collection of artists, but the songs have a sonic and psychic continuity to them that makes them all work together. I think so anyway. Lots of piano, sensual beats, strings, subtle horns. Each mix is about a full CD, maybe a little less. Some of the other editions feature Cat Power, New Order, Tricky, Air, Mastodon, Converge, Happy Mondays, the Good the Bad & the Queen, and others. All are authorized for linear or random play.

Monday Mornings: Mellow, Moody, Melancholy, and Mild Tunes To Ease Your Way Into the Work Week. Disc Five:

1. Nine Inch Nails, “Every Day Is Exactly the Same”

- NIN's uptempo stuff has been hit-and-miss in recent years, but Reznor's mellow material is always a winner.

2. Beastie Boys, “Futterman’s Rule”

- Heavier instrumental

03. Celtic Frost, “Winter (Requiem)”

- Dark traditional string instrumental from metal legends.

04. Buck 65, “Drawing Curtains”

- Alt-rapper with really evocative background tracks. This one has some whispered French background vocals. Piano + strings, too.

05. Low in the Sky, “Dialogue With a Shadow”

- Akron soundscapists get experimental with a whole bevvy of sounds and instruments, but not TOO experimental. One of the group's key guys is Joe Mindadeo, whose remix of the GWC theme serves as the podcast's outro music. This track sounds like industrial electric accordian.

06. Aleck Jaris performs Phillip Glass’s “Metamorphosis II”

- Jaris’ version was the only one available on eMusic and iTunes. Pretty darned close to the orignal. II and V are the winners; with the rest, Glass’ repetitive tehcnique wears thin pretty quicl.

07. Low in the Sky, “Fnd Wax Cylindr At Abandnd Shell Station”

- Lightly percussive soundscape.

08. Helen Money, “Birds”

- Plunky string instrumental with a not-so-subtle melody; I skip this one sometimes, but liked it enough to include in the final version.

09. Beastie Boys, “Transitions”

- Trippy funk; all the B-Boys tracks are instrumental

10. Low in the Sky, “Pursuit of the Giant Squid”

11. Low in the Sky, “And Snow [While Surfacing]

- Back-to-back tracks by the same artist violates the rules of conscientious mix-making, but again, it’s OK to listen to these sets on random.

12. Buck 65, “Corrugated Tin Façade”

- Really haunting, uplifting, non-lyrics female vocals on this one.

13. Interpol, “The Lighthouse”

- Hushed outtro from new album. Has some percussion strikes that sound like ominous bells.

14. Aleck Karis performs Phillip Glass’s “Metamorphosis V”

- Everyone’s favorite, from BSG episode “Valley of Darkness.” If Starbuck’s dad was really a Cylon, what does it say about the race that a so-called toaster could write something like this?

15. TV on the Radio, “I Was a Lover”

- Horns and a funky beat end your A.M. on an up note.

Mr. Yuk, he's mean.
Mr. Yuk, he's green.

Been a while since I had German, but if I recall correctly, the chorus translates to something like

"Herr Yuk ist bose / Herr Yuk ist grun."

Which has nothing to do with anything. Further tangent from there: My college German teacher, she was so German that her dad had been a fairly high ranking member of the Third Reich. She'd actually sat on Hitler's lap and called him "Uncle Dolphy." And to her, being born in bred in Germany, learning German and its impossibly counterintuitive mechanics was the simplest thing in the world. "All you have to do is get a feel for it," she'd say. Felt like trying to lift an X-wing out the swamp using the Force.

Anyhow, keeping with the theme from podcast #82:
