I know how this dates me, but lately I’ve gotten into the old Bing Crosby-Frank Sinatra duets. I just bought my second CD of old radio shows and live appearances in whjich they sang together in the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. Their voices blended beautifulfully, and their stage patter was hilarious. Two generations of arguably the two best singers of the 20th century!
I recently discovered that I love folk/folk like music. Everything from classic Woody Guthrie stuff to Ingrid Michaelson. I love all of the folk music shows on NPR and can listen to that stuff pretty much endlessly.
I’ve been obsessed with Michael Buble, Maroon 5 (I can’t get enough of Adam Levine’s voice), Jason Mraz and John Mayer for the past 4–5 years. Their songs make up most of my phone’s playlist and I have them on constant repeat. I also love Frank Sinatra and company (my “default” Pandora station is Michael Buble Radio which also plays a lot of big band music).
^ @this_velvet_glove Ah, one of my favourites.
I’m stoked to see them with Katatonia again in a couple of months. I keep hoping one of these days they’ll treat me to some Bloodbath. I mean, they’re all right there. ^_^
I’ve seen them live… Let’s see… Six times? Three of them were in a row, when I was 7 months pregnant. Miami, Orlando, Tampa. That was with Dream Theatre, 3, and Between the Buried and Me.
I am so upset that 3 broke up. They were better live than their recordings. Seriously. Between the Buried and Me was meh at best. Dream Theatre, well, they’re Dream Theatre. ^_^ And that was before Portnoy left. It was magical.
Yep. I’m only sad that I never got to see Martin Lopez before he stepped down. He was an incredible drummer. I do have him on a couple of DVDs. It’s OK, though, I rather like Legolaxe. I will admit to crying actual tears when Peter Lindgren quit.
