Re: What are you listening to?

I never followed all his stuff either. There are several songs I love. But I think everyone knows "Under Pressure". It's a catchy tune, you'll never get that bass line out of your head, it's brilliant,

After he died I had the Space Oddity refrain in my head for several days, because that song was played everywhere for a couple of days.

Re: What are you listening to?

Man, the thing about hearing a lot of old hits around the same time as each other is --- getting them all tumbled together in head!  The whole week!  Not only my old soft-spot favorite songs from 'Labyrinth', but 'Under Pressure' (which I happily complete forgot was a collaboration between those guys!), 'Space Oddity', and now lately a little Adele.  Another singer I'm well aware of the presence/adoration of for years, but never listened to her much - many fans here?  A friend gave me her newest, thinking I'd appreciate her style, and while not sure a huge fan of the songs, I do concede she has quite the unique voice!  Lately, her hit 'Hello' mostly stood out for me for being so plaintively heartfelt and been stuck in head too.  Very pretty.  Although why is nearly every single new song about lost/hurt love?         I thought her albums were journeys of her years at that point, and almost wanting more 'movement' through different themes.  But then, I don't listen to a whole lot of pop stars.

Re: What are you listening to?

I don't know every Adele song (basically only the ones she sang on her Live in London show and then maybe one or two more in addition) but I do appreciate that she has a great voice.

I suppose to some extent her songs share similar themes, but I think those are just common themes in music generally.
Not all of them are about lost love, though, even if perhaps remembering the past is a more general theme. Like "Million Years Ago" and "When We Were Young" (which I like a lot).

And then of course, Skyfall is epic.

Re: What are you listening to?

Yeah, that's what I mean!  I mean, I know there's certain common themes, and more so depending on the artist or the image/message they tend to build.  And I think her voice is fantastic, I was just expressing mixed uncertainty of whether or not I enjoyed the songs themselves, considering only a few really grabbed at (which again, is a vague yet interesting musical quality of the right rhythm/notes/emotional pull), and that pretty much every single one had the same theme.  I guess I just thought her 'journey' of a new album would vary more… I practically almost said 'finally!' when I got to the last song and it was about being actually happy in love.  And yes, her 'Skyfall' was fantastic!  I think she does well when doing heartfelt/sultry songs like that… almost an old-school feel.

   What… did I just listen to??      I have been a big fan of Seal ever since I discovered him as a teenager, and mostly kept up with his work over the years (even as it varied), although evidently didn't hear about everything he was doing.  That was beautiful.  Never heard of the woman, and was struck by how soprano her voice was!  Thanks!  Funny you should post that now, when I've been thinking of him lately, waiting to get his newest cd (another one of those cases with longtime-artist-finally-returns-from-a-long-break type thing, so I'm so much hoping he created some more great stuff like what I loved his voice all this time for!)

I confess I know relatively little of Seal's work.
But what I've heard I love.

I love this song and I´m glad it was to your liking. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Seal is a great singer and Mylene Farmer is one of the most popular icons of French popular music (+ on top of a lovely voice, she writes very poetic lyrics to her songs and has interesting videoclips). She sometimes works together with "anglo-saxon" artists. For example, not that long ago she sang "Stolen Car" together with Sting:

Re: What are you listening to?

For those, who are interested, I found a wonderful German translation of Les Mots lyrics. Incredibly poetic and almost better than the original lyrics, tbh. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: What are you listening to?

I'm listening to Moonlight Sonata.
Because I can't find it in me to learn to play it, even if it's a simple one.

So, yes, been listening to Moonlight Sonata on a loop. Since yesterday.

Re: What are you listening to?

We have an electric piano in our house.
It was originally my son's, until he lost interest.
My daughter's quite interested, but yes, can't fit it in where she lives.
She does have her violin with her, though she is a beginner.

I'm taking the flute up again after getting some advice from my friend who's a teacher about how to avoid skin contact with it as I'm allergic to nickel so had to stop playing at 16. Very exciting!

Re: What are you listening to?

I love my recorders! I think they're all at my sisters though as she kept them all as she was a music teacher and I moved a lot when I was in my early twenties.

I watched The Voice UK on Saturday and a girl sang "Life on Mars" and it's still in my head. So I'm back in the Bowie phase.

Re: What are you listening to?

My favourite series of the moment concluded season 2 (which I watched again today) with Elton John's Rocket Man. Now I have an ear worm.... It was just so apt and I hadn't heard it in a long, long time....
