7 May 2008, 23:28 by ukforever1. How did you get into 29?
I listened to The Verve until they broke up and the next obvious thing to do was to listen to Ashcroft. Incidentally, I hated Alone With Everybody for a long time. Then one day I woke up and heard the genius in it.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
It was Do You Sleep? and I saw her perform in on David Letterman.
3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?
Not sure. When I listen to them, it's mainly for the atmospheric quality. Besides, I think some of their lyrics are in Danish.
4. What is your favorite album by 49?
London Philharmonic Choir
I think the only album that I have of thier's is a version of Handel's Messiah.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?

Would have to be The Foggy Dew with Sinead O'Connor.

21 Jul 2007, 06:41 by chancerThe two reasons I listen to so much music:
One: Music is humanity's highest achievement.
Two: I'm tired and sickly.
A 2006 study showed that listening to music can reduce chronic pain and depression. Well, duh.
I don't have chronic pain so much as lack of energy, digestive troubles, and difficulty sleeping. I use music to manipulate my energy level.
I can soothe my nerves and calm my heart rate by listening to Anonymous 4 singing Hildegard Von Bingen's medieval compositions. (Scientists have some interesting hypotheses about music and heartrate; I recommend the linked article, but disregard the misleading headline.)
I like a hypnotic groove for workouts, so that I hardly notice the physical effort, like Issa Bagayogo's earthy electronic Malian pop.
I may be barely able to drag myself out of bed some weekends, but I never get bored. Music brings me infinite worlds of feelings, experiences, and ideas, especially because I explore so many diverse kinds of music. …
27 Mar 2007, 02:54 by SpoonofevilEdit: As well all know, prepositions are for losers. I am a winner.
Congratulations me! I have listened to 20,000 tracks on this thing. I actually did it twice, since last.fm deleted some of my plays. Thanks for nothing jerk.
I tried to be a ceremonious about it the first time, I chose Nothing Lasts (the entire album joined into one track) for this event.
After I lost the plays, me real one was Narcocorrido. I have no strong opinion about it, since I have listened to it only once at the present time. They are a good band though.
My top 10 overall artists at this time:
1. Current 93
3. Anonymous 4
6. Infected Mushroom
7. Franzl Lang
8. Der Blutharsch
22 Oct 2006, 22:41 by nell_jamesI'm no expert, but I'm exploring and hope to learn a lot more about it (especially to pick up some compositional techniques). I've loved Renaissance and Early Music for a while, especially instrumental dances and ballads, and of course vocal polyphony (a la Josquin des Prez, Claudio Monteverdi, Palestrina, etc). My parents made me aware of Renaissance polyphony early on by taking me to Anonymous 4 and Chanticleer Christmas concerts when I was a kid. Rather than the other way around, this interest was part of what initially attracted me to Gentle Giant, as well as Gryphon, although my knowledge of Early Music and its history has expanded since then (along with Medieval and Renaissance history and literature and so on).
I've just begun delving into some 20th century classical. I'm finding out that Prokofiev is wonderful, specifically his Symphony No 5. I just went to an amazing concert, it was the New York Philharmonic performing Prokofiev's score to "Alexander Nevsky" while projecting the film above the orchestra. Wow!!
