I have an excellent cd of Billy J Kramer. In later years he had a deeper and more convincing voice. Many of the songs were never out by him years ago and the selection is brilliant.

Jolly good Rj. I myself have hundreds of CD's but that's not the topic of this thread. It's, What music are you listening to right now? The clue is kind of in the title.  :whistle:

But as you've mentioned Billy J Kramer, here he is with the Dakotas with one of my favourites from when I was a wee nipper.

The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.

One of my acquaintances (cannot call her a friend because of the opinion of hers I am about to share) thinks that Rammstein, some other German band (hip-hop-rave duo) that I luckily cannot remember, and Prodigy are all interchangeable and equally good. I strongly disagree. Only Prodigy is passable among those.

Or Prodigy was good until it wasn't too ravey. The last style development that can still be called music was techno. After that came rave and that's not music anymore. And since then there has been no style innovation.

By the way, did you notice that Daft Punk broke apart?

First three albums were OK, but yeah after that not so much.

One of those bands or should I say "duos" that passed me by I must admit. I know their big hit Get Lucky with Pharrell Williams, but other than that I can't say I would know who it was if they came on the radio.

My computer is midst-snit, but I heard enough of the song's beginning and end to say I like it! Thanks. I'd not likely have found it on my own...

What I heard earlier todayon my car radio, as I sat outside of a birthday party already started without me...:)  (still echoes in that space between my ears, I'm told, should be put to good use... (I tell'em back, Waddya think I'm tryin' ta'do?:) Beethoven's Ghost Trio, rendered with authority and sensitivity. When I can, I'll give what YouTube has a listen; but first I want the sheets! (I picked up a violin this week, had it set up by a local professional, and -as is not unusual for me- I want to dive in head-first! :) But seriously: How hard can it be? It has strings and a fingerboard and I can read well enough...
So what, if I haven't touched a fiddle in almost 40 years?!
(I'm told it likely was incidental music for a production of Macbeth:)

What I'm listening to as I write this is: Three old clocks in my room ticking the seconds away, a soothing sound.

The overwhelming popularity of Indonesian music in Malaysia had alarmed the Malaysian music industry. In 2008 Malaysian music industry demanded the restriction of Indonesian songs on Malaysian radio broadcaststs.[1]
So, already in 2008 the Indonesian pop music was breaking serious waves in the region. Has it escalated further lately?

What a mess.
Edit: This kind of random chord progression can make sense in something like bossanova. I would have radically simplified the song before attempting to play.

What you describe as your ideal work environment, ersi, would drive me nuts! Perhaps because of my early experiences as a nightclub musician, I've always liked hubbubs and small crowds. I like (well, I did; I'm retired now) the unexpected, problems and challenges... And when things were under nominal control I'd found that there are few "jobs" that I couldn't do while carrying on a conversation.
People fascinate me, and I like being around them! (I've quipped, "Not surprising, that: I was raised by people!")
Very nice. Have you been filmed on stage? Care to share?

As an aside, copyright should simply not be a thing at all.

Hah, I just watched/skimmed that video yesterday.

I find it a bit surprising that YT isn't treating this more as a business opportunity trying to sell the rights to a track on the spot. Do you suppose the big record companies don't want that?

I'm sure you already have the answer.

Do you know these guys?

Copyright (particularly music copyright, enforcing the copyright, copyright infringement lawsuits etc.) should not exist because the concept of copyright is meaningless. In its modern form it does not have any sensible purpose except to accumulate money to those who already have it. At least in the previous video (the music library video) there are some tunes worth listening for background, whereas the code-generated music is all crap, yet both are somehow equally copyrightable, under equal legal protection.
