     Figured we could use this space for any music discussion that you deem important for your soul. Recommendations are always cool too.

So what are you guys listening to these days?

 

  I am currently stuck in the 80s and 90s this week. The up beat fast paced hype has helped me stay in a flow recently. Something about songs from my adolescence that I didn't understand then but liked the song. I find it to be a full circle. Often finding myself wondering why it took me so long to actually listen to what some songs were about. A good example of this for me would be 99 Luftballoons by Nena. Its pretty crazy how different the UK version is from the German original. I feel like it shouldn't have even been made, the original speaks volumes. Carlo Karges, the writer responsible for the lyrics did a great job. Its pretty crazy 30 some years ago and here we are in the same state almost. 


 I will update this soon with a list of what I'm actually listening to so you all could check it out; just need to get it all organized.
for now though I'll leave you with the song of today for me. Sleep Deprivation by Chance Pena. Found it a few weeks ago, one of the ones that gets my chest burning and extra moisture on the rim of my eye lids. 

 

Noticed the past threads have been locked, so feel free to just ball out with your tunes in here y'all. otherwise ill see you in the vinyl thread!

After ignoring the tech for years I downloaded and installed spotify for the first time middle of last year.

 

I am listening to music much more as consequence but still have some figuring to do with the interface.

 

I like to listen to albums all the way through, or listen to a well thought out compilation with some sort of theme.

 

In the time before time I used to listen to a lot of soundtracks and assorted compilations.

 

My experience with spotify is that they want to shove only tangentially related music down your throat, does anyone have suggestions for improving the experience? 

 

Yesterday for example I was thinking about old American music related to the great state of California and recalled this song 

 

 

 

by Woody Guthie.

 

I could not recall the exact name but asked my car to play Woodie Guthrie song about California, it started out playing two songs from different best of Woody type comps and then played the Dropkick Murphies sampling Woody Guthrie, which really is not the same thing at all.

 

Where do I go in the app to improve my experience? Part of the problem is that I really only listen in my work truck. Maybe today I will try to dial it in a little from home.

 

To the question at hand, I have been listening to albums from my youth, all the way through to see how they hold up. 

 

Last week I did All Eyez on Me, it held up more or less. 

 

If anyone wants to suggest an album to take to the test I am up for it, I was thinking Nirvana's Nevermind or Bleach might be next on the nostalgia trials.
