I don't mind people stockpiling toilet roll if they think it will stop them getting the flu BUT I wish supermarkets would play better music while we do it.
Most of my local supermarkets have an uninspired selection or just play local radio.
Any supermarket which plays the Beatles album Revolver from start to finish will have my custom.
Hello everyone thought of my music tastes. How about we do some themes and topics on music titles.
I used to create tapes the old c60 or 120 mixed and all on a theme.
Or a topic. Did one on Love all Soul songs. In the title. Just for fun helps the mental memory and good to share care.
Start with Summer all the songs with Summer in the title. As we are in Summer .
Here are my favourite ones in my Collection.
Summertime Blues - Eddie Cochran
Summer Love - Andy Williams
It's Summer - Billy Fury Orchestra instrumental two songs.
Summer Place - Percy Faith and Orchestra
Summer set - Acker Bilk.
Summer In The City -Lovin'Spoonful Anyone got any more .
Hi everyone I thought I would start a thread on people who play any musical instrument but mainly keyboard/pianos and organs
I started playing piano when I was six and the keys have been part of me ever since
I live in a small house with part of the lounge taken up with a 76 note Roland keyboard along side a Yamaha 2 manual organ.
I thought by starting this thread it would create an interest in what instruments are played and what styles of music you play.
It would also be interesting to see how the balance is of those that need music and those who play by ear. This could end up a bit of a self help group, a sheet music exchange etc. some may be helped by others to explore various styles and techniques .especially when trying to decipher music
The possibilities go on .
I look forward to your input
I so wish I had discovered this wonderful singer a lot earlier than I did. She performed with Fairport Convention and was the only guest to appear with Led Zeppelin in 1971.
A troubled soul, she lost her life way too early to a brain haemorrhage. I am of course talking about the late great Sandy Denny.
Her voice is sublime and phrasing superb. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSABfJWqh38 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFnQaFVHdsE&list=RDRSABfJWqh38&index=7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPq5ijmY6wQ&list=RDRSABfJWqh38&index=5
I remember seeing the blind reed player Roland Kirk at Ronnie Scott's once.
He was playing a solo with his back to the band, when Percy Heath turned up out of nowhere and changed places with Roland's bass player. To me it looked like a seamless changeover.
At the end, Roland, who can't have seen what happened, stepped up to the mike and said, "Yeah, I've always wanted to play with Percy Heath." The crowd, as the saying goes, went wild.
This is a message that I hope inspires other 60+ musicians. I am a real 60+ senior who and has been a struggling musician for many years. When I lost my wife to Cancer I withdrew from the music industry and thought my dream was over. But this June I produced my first YouTube video of a song dedicated to Mother Nature. It was such an inspiring experience that I wanted other 60+ seniors to know that it's never too late to pursue the things you love!
