Three 7 year old buskers (lead, bass and drums) doing a passable Smoke on the Water sequeing into Iron Man. Passable for 7 year old buakers, anyway. I'd bottle them off if they were at Glastonbury.

Talking Heads, Road to Nowhere


Talking Heads were the soundtrack to my life in my twenties.

David Byrne said in an interview in 2006 that he thinks he might have had AS but that he grew out of it(!). I always thought he was AS.

Thank you :) I had a horrible feeling someone was going to link back to the video and just say "this" in answer to my question - so I'm glad you answered it :D

I'm listening to your link now (about of a quarter of the way through it) some of it would drive my neighbour nuts so that means I like it :lol:

Thanks again

Darkshine (who will be listening for another 8 minutes - which means I like it enough to do so)

Telemann chamber music performed by Passacaglia

I love baroque music - but only certain composers, mainly Handel and Vivaldi. I feel I ought to like Telemann but any of his music I have heard leaves me indifferent.

Tastes in music are hard to explain, aren't they? :unsure:

Well then you must try this. I'm not sure if it's 'safe' - it's definitely not very well known. But it's heart-meltingly gorgeous.

It's nice and relaxing - just what I need after today :D

I'm not a big classical music fan (is it even classical? It sounds like classical type music) but the pieces I do like are like this in the sense that there isn't too much going on (as in too many instruments playing at once). One of my favourites is moonlight sonata - can't be bothered to put in the correct title even though I just used more letters saying this ;)

Yes, I find music like this a great antidote to the stresses and strains of the world. I suppose it is classical but I try not to pay too much attention to labels.

The Moonlight Sonata is a lovely piece but not typical of Beethoven I think. I find his music in general quite aggressive and angsty.

If you are interested in exploring similar music to the Eclogue and the Moonlight, here are two more chill-out classics. :peace:
