This is inspired by a suggestion from Pearl Clutcher -

For those of you that have personal playlists in some sort of device, or even on the old-puter, list the recording artists that appear. (And in the spirit of BFH, don’t omit any “embarrassing” choices.)

    Mark -

    Elton John prior to 1974 is a “no apology necessary zone.”

    Beyond that cut-off and it gets very very distressing.

    Evanescence, on the other hand, is revealing the inner drama queen. lol

    Fur,
    Gloria’s Spanish-language CDs are wonderful. And I love the early, pre-pander to American audiences Shakira. She used to be very creative and her music was amazingly clever. Then, she wanted to appeal to me as an American, and she totally lost me. She Wolf? Seriously? “Buffalo Stance” and “Sassy” That’s why I like Neneh.

    Oh, my Goodness! I forgot…

    Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass

    Shoot me some Estefan and Shakira titles.
    And early Alpert is great. You throw “Rise” in their and I may throw your iPhone out the winduh. (I’ll tell you why specifically. I do not like that KEYBOARD SOUND. The Fender Rhodes “chime” keyboard sound. It causes me to want to kill Toni Tenille AND The Captain.) -bfh

    HERE YOU GO, SENOR FUR EL GORRO:

    Early Shakira: Anything from Pies Descalzos (1996).
    “Vuelve”
    “Pies Descalzos”
    “Se Quiere” (The best)
    From “Donde Estan los Ladrones” (1998):
    “Si Te Vas”
    “No Creo” (my favorite)
    “Inevitable”
    “Octavo Dia”
    “Donde Estan los Ladrones”
    “Ojos Asi”

    Actually, some of Shakira’s stuff from her latest “Sale el Sol” is very much like her earlier stuff too (“Mariposa” for example, but I’m sick of it when rap artists sing with her).

    Espanol Gloria:
    “Abriendo Puertas”
    “Nuevo Dia”
    “Lejos de Ti”
    “Tres Gotas de Agua Bendita” (With Celia Cruz)
    And pretty much from “Mi Terra” (like “Hablemos el Mismo Idioma” – awesome!)

    But, I won’t shut off her terrific version of “Turn the Beat Around.”

    I don’t know what she’s singing!!! She could be saying BigFurHat Makes Me Vomit!

    We have a Sonos system, so our “playlists” change all the time.

    When we have a playlist it can be anything we happen to think of at the time, depending on what we’re talking about.

    One day we played Neilsen’s “Lime in the Coconut” song repeatedly.

    - Mozart, concerto for clarinet in A, K 622
    - Mozart
    - Ravelle
    - Tchaikovsky
    - Copeland
    - Bob Rivers (Twisted Radio) Christmas Carols

    I only have 1,583 songs so far. (I think?)
    in 645 artists folders.. and counting.
    the list of artists would take up too much space on here..
    last week I finally installed (2).. 3 TB harddrives from CompUSA (they were on sale!)
    I was running out of room with only 2½ TB’s.
    Does anyone else like The Chris Duarte Group – tailspin headwhack album?

    What’s wrong with Pat Boone?

    He’s the musical equivalent of government cheese.

    He has a vocal range from middle c to middle e.

    His phrasing is as interesting as a washing machine parts list.

    His vocal tone is as enriching as a salt-free saltine.

    He’s as edgy as a stress ball.

    There is absolutely nothing to latch on to, unless you’re musing about the day you spent painting that beige room.

    A nice change of pace from Pat Boone is listening to room ambiance and your tinnitus.

    Shall I go on?
    He’s a fine person. As an entertainer, I’d have to go into the Mark Russell concert before the Pat Boone show.

    I have hundreds of artists in digital format, so many that my portable appliance can’t hold them all.

    I love all music.

    My top 50 playlist collected via shuffle and stacked artists because I don’t swap music on the portable isn’t a good representation. Things happen like ABBA is the top artist alphabetically, so it is most played because when I regularly synched, it reset shuffle, I hit play and hear fcuking DANCING QUEEN! LIKE I’M LISTENING TO NOW BECAUSE SHIT TUNES JUST UPDATED AND I HIT PLAY AGAIN!

    I wore out one “The Point” tape at one time and had to buy a second. Then it went on my storage drive. I was suddenly widowed and the whole story was my story, especially the song when he falls into a the hole in the ground and can’t get out.

    I’ll check out the artist you mentioned.

    I was scheduled to graduate from HS in 1984, but I got out a year early (good behavior and good enough grades). My first album (vinyl) was Queen “The Game”. This was before I knew what a queen was, BTW. I figured they were British and really dug the queen or royalty or some artistic crap like that. Boy was I surprised a few years later… Anyway, my Father was into Western music (Sons of the Pioneers Sons of the Pioneers, Hank Williams Sr. Hank Williams Sr.); popular jazz (Dave Brubeck Quartet Dave Brubeck, Herb Alpert Herb Alpert) and Cowboy music (Marty Robbins,Marty Robbins; Merle Haggard (Merle Haggard ); Hank Snow Hank Snow; Charlie Pride Charlie Pride
    Then in the 70′s he moved into more modern groups like ABBA and Simon and Garfunkle and Neil Diamond and because of his brother who lived on the Oregon coast Kraftwerk Kraftwerk Autobahn then I joined the military in ’83 and lost touch with the groups he liked until I came home on leave a few years later. Then it was the Cars Cars; Kim Carnes Kim Carnes and most of the Elvis repertoire. I listened to the pop of the 80′s but in the 90′s I was stationed in Germany and took up the techno habit. Now I listen to DJ’s you’ve probably never heard of from Europe mainly. If you’re curious, here’s a representative sample Armand van Buuren and I only listen to the music of my youth when I’m feeling melancholy.

    When someone asks me what kind of music I like, my answer is “good”. I like something from every genre I’ve ever been exposed to, including Opera (if Flight of the Valkyries counts) and even rap if Weird Al Yankovic counts ( Weird Al)

    It sounds trite, but it’s true, music transcends all nationalities and cultural boundaries and can truly unite very different peoples. Three cheers to music lovers, wherever they may be found.

    I awoke from a nap recently one afternoon with this song playing in my head. I have learned to discern that when this happens to me, there is a heavenly message for me in the lyrics of these songs that I sometimes wake up to. I initially thought the singer was Robert Goulet. I did an Internet search and discovered the version I heard in my head was sung by Ed Ames. After I listened to this wonderful song sung by a man with a magnificent voice, I understood that it was a message from Jesus to me. To comfort me. Because I was in need at that time.

    And so I share it with you all. Because Jesus feels this way about all of you.
    Merry Christmas
