Quick question: what are you listening to as you read this? And why? Is it on the radio in your car/playlist on iPod/Turntable?

Turntable you ask? Yes indeedy I still love my LP’s.

Kids – google turntable for a laugh. It plays giant black CDs made of vinyl turning them at 33⅓ RPM’s. There are also singles at 45 RPM’s. I don’t play those anymore – one song at a time is just too much. But give me one side of a Vinyl – 22 minutes of pure music bliss over your iPod anyday.

You may respond.

Oh man, pinched again. I have CMT (Country Music Television) on. I can’t stand MTV or VH1. My first music purchases were LP’s. Loved all the covers and the art work.

zensky's avatar

Man – I miss buying records.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Those huge covers were amazing. CD’s don’t even come close.

zensky's avatar

I have the orginal artwork included inside the Beatles’ records framed on my wall. Sigh.

Wondering if a “quick question” equates to a one-liner & if so, does this make one anti-community? ;-}
I’m not listening to music, but watching golf on the tellybox, much nicer when you have cash riding on it.

Vivaldi (I think) in the local classical station.

David Sedaris, on YouTube, telling all about ‘Jesus Shaves’.
Love it and all his work.

It is only 8:22 a.m. here and the only “music” I am listening to is a tree frog croaking, the “whoosh“of my fireplace and the dishwasher churning away.
I have an 11:30 home massage and will then put on some soothing massage music and THEN, I am going to get high and kick ass on cleaning my house which will certainly call for some rock-n-roll! lol

Lou Reed “Walk on the Wild Side” XM Radio driving down I-5 towards SoCal.
Classic Vinyl
(I may not be to far from you @Coloma. Left Ashland, OR about 5:30 this morning. )

Not listening to anything but the sound of the wind soughing in the pines, but rereading some Hamlet.

Coloma's avatar

@Judi Cool! I am about 5–6 hours away. :-)
I LOVE old Lou Reed..Sweet Jaaane!

I’m listening to Jazz Crusaders play ‘Inherit the Wind’ on YouTube. I heard it on Jazz FM and really liked it. I like music but hardly ever buy it which I know is wrong.

I’m listening to the TV play in the background, because my sister is watching it. I’m not watching because I’ve been working on my homework for the past hour and a half or so!

Escape Pod episode.

I’m listening to the rain fall lightly outside my window and to the sound of my clock ticking.

I’m listening to the Billy Joel station on pandora, but a Ben Folds song is playing at the moment.

I am listening to my daughter sing “Where do I begin,” as I write this. Except I had to ask her the name of the song, so she stopped singing.

Lucky you caught me at a moment when she was singing. Now she’s singing “The girl from Ipanema.”

Old “Family Guy” reruns. Back when Mila Kunis was not “Meg”

iPod on shuffle. Better leave her behind but the kids are alright!

Karl Pilkington on an episode of An Idiot Abroad.

It’s a commercial now but Eddie Money was playing before it.
“You can even wake up without morning breath.” I think it was a gum commercial.

nofurbelowsbatgirl's avatar

At the moment nothing. But earlier in the car I was listening to U2 on CD over and over.

deni's avatar

Haha, I’m listening to Burl Ives version of the cowboy classic “Cool Water”.

zensky's avatar

@nofurbelowsbatgirl I could do that easily – U2 rock!

nofurbelowsbatgirl's avatar

@zensky agreed! I’ll turn it up then :)

@nofurbelowsbatgirl You know, the more I Fluther, the more I realize that I still haven’t found what I’m looking for…

Please Remember Me by Tim McGraw on my iPad with an app called Jango. You type in an artist you like at it plays similar artists!

@zensky Yes, With or Without You

@nofurbelowsbatgirl But all I want is you…!

nofurbelowsbatgirl's avatar

@zensky oh “Babyface”, meet me on the “4th of July” in the “City of Blinding Lights” and we can get “A room at the Heartbreak Hotel” because I understand “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own”. ;x

Be bad, my angel of harlem.

“Mofo”! “Instant Karma!” “Rise Up” & “Rejoice.” You give me “Vertigo” :p

The wonderful sound of the vacuum cleaner, being pushed by someone other than me. Nice to have a housekeeper every two weeks for a few hours…a perk of being older and retired and not spending money on $400 shoes and pocketbooks.

‘Harry’s Bar’ by Gordon Haskell.
Wonderful, if you ask me.
