As of the last two days or so, I've been bewitched, bothered, and bewildered by Fiona Apple's version of "Why Try To Change Me Now?". I'm almost pretty sure that I'm almost ready to decide that I almost like her version of it better than Frank Sinatra's.

...

Aw, heck. Enough pussyfooting. 'Far as I'm concerned, hers blows Frank's version away.

So, without further ados, ...

Here she is:

Anyways, ...

Question(s):

Have you been "obsessing" about any songs lately? If so, care to share?

"Vale Decem." Anyone who looks that up will know what a tremendous nerd I'm being at the moment.

Anyone who doesn't need to look that up is also a tremendous nerd.

Over the past few weeks, I came across some old NES tunes on youtube, and at this moment am listening to the Treasure Room tune from Gauntlet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txvhKtDF1SA...feature=related
sten to.

If anyone here has a good ear for recognizing music, I am wondering if you might be able to write some of the old NES songs onto sheet music so that people like myself who are learning about music can play the songs on guitar or piano. Other people have already written out the music sheets for Super Mario, Zelda, and Metroid.

The "Brasil Project I" version of the Toots Thielemans jazz classic, "Bluesette". Toots (harmonica and whistling) is accompanied by all of the artists on the album.

One of my favorites.

Amen! I have loved Rise Against since Siren Song of the Counter Culture came out. Appeal to Reason is far and away the best punk album released in the last decade (American Idiot is not punk, sorry).

I know you also like Social D and Mike Ness, have you heard anything by Nothington or Red City Radio? They have that punk/folk feel. Gaslight Anthem is another band you might absolutely love, basically Springsteen turned into punk songs.

Outrageous is spot on. He and Sage Francis are neck and neck in my mind for the most profound lyricists in hip hop.

If I were still om the job, and still sitting in an office next to the guy who used to be my boss (story for another day)... I would be listening to Rush Limbaugh.

Retirement is so nice. I am listening to the click of PE's keyboard...and a pet dove telling the cat, "I own the house! (The cat likes to lay on top of the dove's cage, and the dove likes to peck at the cat's paws through the cage.)

I agree on both counts. I'm actually surprised that Rise Against isn't more popular, they are so phenomenal...so many great original songs I didn't tire of hearing them again and again through virtually an entire cross country car trip.

Social D is my favorite band thanks so much for the recommendations! I hadn't heard of any of those. Now that my son is a teenager, he's actually the one who turned me on to Rise Against, I'll steer him in the direction of those as well....

Edited: Just started listening to Gaslight Anthem on Youtube and love it already!!

Queen...Van-Halen...and last but not least Bach.

Yep, eclectic is good. I've been catching up on the various people who play during A Prairie Home Companion. Love or hate Keillor, he does attract a lot of different quality acts, and the archives have improved tremendously in sound quality and continuity. There are vids now too.

Think it was a couple of months ago that Leo Kottkey played with Pat Donohue, two monster guitarists from my neck of the woods (childhood and young adulthood). Neither can sing worth spit, but still they do. I can't sing worth squat either, so it feels like home.

Mostly though, I've been listening to the white sound of a space heater this winter. Can't write when music is playing; can't play music while writing -- not enough arms, hands and fingers.

Here's something interesting: Lydia is a classically trained pianist who can't play piano after working at the computer for hours, and vice versa. It takes time for the finger memories to clear. However, I don't have any trouble switching from computer to guitar and back again. I think that's because the guitar is nothing like a QWERTY keyboard, but a piano is. Sort of. Black keys, you know.

Currently, I am exploring dubstep with mixed results. Some of the mixers aren't bad. Freestylers Cracks (Ft. Belle Humble) (Flux Pavilion Remix) is good and so is some of the Bassnectar stuff.

For more introspective moods I am listening to Sarah Blackwood - Drowning.

I've been digging The Barr Brothers.

I've been learning the art of flatpicking on my trusty old Martin, so I've been listening to a lot of Norman Blake, Tony Rice, and of course Doc Watson.

Then there's this guy. My wife is in love with him.

(Those of you who don't have kids will probably find this pretty pathetic, so just skip to the next post. Thanks.)

When my girls were babies, I was able to inundate them with pretty much anything I wanted to. They were put to sleep every night - for years - with Jack Johnson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jim Croce, The Lovin' Spoonful, Chopin, and a great classical guitar sampler I got off Amazon for 99 cents. All quiet, sleepytime music, but good stuff. It was kind of my experiment to see if I could somehow skip over the kiddie music phase and maybe move directly into, I suppose, pop.

Now they are 5 and 7, and my experiment has failed, at least partially. They still like the artists who put them to sleep, but Daddy's influence has lost major ground to Nickelodeon, Disney, and the whole media machine. Now when I'm driving them around, it's Justin Bieber, the Yo Gabba Gabba album (which, actually, features some pretty cool artists), Taylor Swift, etc. They know the songs by Victoria Justice and Big Time Rush, owing to their constant play on Nickelodeon. And last week, when they went to the library with Grandma, they came home with a Hannah Montana CD, which I consider the low point of this whole process. I really hope that one doesn't catch on.

But I have to admit, that Bieber kid can really sing. And if it makes my girls smile, he's OK with me.

I'm still battling the evil influence of children's TV with Gary Numan. So far so good.

Currently I am listening to a local band from my home city. They are called Analogik

They will come around. I don't think there's a way to counteract the fact that kids have, let's not say terrible but very different taste in music than adults. I used to groan when my mom put on Jim Croce in the car, but now I love him and pretty much all the classic bands my parents love (Lovin' Spoonful included).

For some inexplicable reason, my father missed the boat on Led Zeppelin, so I was able to return the favor and reintroduce him to some great music from his era.
