A small black hole would be better cos then he would be snapped in half first! :eek2: Don't know what it's called but if there are any Brits here, it's the one off the Muiller adverts naming body parts. Drives me mad!!!!!

Too many of each to mention, so I'll add to the rules of the game: pick pairs of songs that you love and hate but which are very similar.

 

Love: Revival, Allman Bros.

Hate: Celebrate, Cool & The Gang

 

People can you feel it, :lightsaber2:

Favourite: Beim Schlafengehen, by Richard Srauss.

 

Not the greatest of titles (German for Going to Sleep); but a heart-rendingly beautiful five-minute setting for soprano voice and orchestra of a poem by Hermann Hesse.

 

It's the third of the group called the Vier Letzte Lieder, or Four Last Songs, written by Richard Strauss (not to be confused with the waltzing Johann Strauss II and that crowd from Vienna, who are no relation) when he was in his eighties.

 

I’ve known them all, and other works by Strauss, for years, and I can’t think of anything even remotely as good in the song department. Beats anything else into a cocked hat.

 

Except, maybe, Im Abendrot (In the Twilight), the last of the four… but I think this one wins by a short head.

 

Just.

 

Hated: I've thought for a few minutes but can't think of one that I hate; but that's probably because I avoid listening to 'popular' music.

I love Rumours by Fleetwood Mac and Tango in the Night by them too but not as comprehensively. I love Kate Bush's Hounds of Love and Aerial but not whole albums by her elsewhere. I like Leonard Cohen, Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Jefferson Airplaneand English Folk-Rock bands like Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. I like Steve Reich, in the contemporary-classic field and Vaughan Williams Lark Ascending and Symphony No. 5 in D. I also like The Rite of Spring by Stravinsky and loved its use in Fantasia because it combined dinosaurs with it and interpreted it beautifully on film in my opinion. I used to like the Planets Suite by Holst too and countless odd albums and singles.

 

Hates? Rap music (see post in Music and the brain)

Classic Rock, yes just about all of it.

Classical Music, Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART, Johann Sebastian BACH

 

 

Hate =

most Rap

and this always got my goat.

Cement Mixer Putti Putti, by Slim Gaillard, CEMENT MIXER, PUTTI PUTTI Lyrics - by SLIM GAILLARD : Lyrics And Songs

 

A fine cross-section of guitarist/vocalist/comedian Slim Gaillard's 1945-49 studio recordings (most of which have not yet appeared on CD)' date=' this Folklyric release has most of the best titles that Gaillard made with his musical partner of the time, bassist Tiny "Bam" Brown, whose high-pitched voice contrasted well with Slim's smooth but nutty delivery. With appearances by pianist Dodo Marmarosa, either Zutty Singleton or Scatman Crothers on drums, and (in the 1949 session) pianist Cyril Haynes, this album (which contains 16 selections) has such odd gems as "Cement Mixer" (a huge hit), "Drei Six Cents," "Laguna Oroonee," "Groove Juice Jive," "Arabian Boogie" and "When Banana Skins Are Falling." Unique and often humorous performances. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide [/quote']

Too many favourites (I am cursed — or blessed, depending on point of view — with catholic tastes), but here are some that I particularly like:

 

•Renaissance madrigals

•French 19th century art songs — especially anything by Gabriel Fauré, Ernest Chausson or Henri Duparc

•Schumann, Schubert and Brahms lieder, and some Hugo Wolf

•Eric Satie cabaret songs, especially "Je Te Veux" and "La Diva de L'Empire"

•"Amor", "Black Max" and other cabaret songs by William Bolcom

•Songs by Berthold Brecht/Kurt Weill and other late-Weimar German cabaret songs

•a lot of Japanese
enka
and
chanson
