I play the piano, but i don't compose anything. I do try to play songs by ear, though, if i can't find any music for it. It's really hard.

That is awesome you live in the Decembrists hometown!  Have you ever seen them?  I saw them on Austin City Limits, and they friggin' rocked!  It was a double set...also appearing were 'Explosions in the Sky.'  They rocked really hard as well.  Man, that was certainly one fantastic hour of music!

When the heck did the Spice Girls get back together??!! I totally missed that one!

(This just might the shortest post I've ever made!)

Edit: Nevermind, guess not. I just wanted to add that I play piano, took lessons for 13 years...but haven't played in a long time now. I do miss it!! I miss writing and playing and just making music!

they got back together and released an album that is only available at Victorias Secret, or something like that.  They have been doing a lot with that company lately.  I think they did a lot of the music for the fashion show as well.  I was in the store a few weeks ago doing some Christmas shopping, and they kept playing their terrible music.  It made me sad, however, being in that store makes me happy, so I guess it all worked out, haha!

I am trying to teach myself guitar all over again, I just never learned a lot at lessons. I would love to compose music on guitar too. I like a lot of rock music, be it mainstream or indie. Anyone have any suggestions for good bands like that?

if you look at my screen name, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Indie music.  I really can't stand most of the "music" they play on the mainstream radios or the junk that comes from MTV etc.  There is better music out there, believe me!  IM me if you would like some of my faves or some suggestions.  What kind of rock do you like?  Meloncholy stuff, happy stuff?  What are some of the bands you listen to now?   I might be able to find you some 'indie' equivalents.

Yeah, I'm not one for much of the mainstream side of things either. People, like my sister for instance, look through the cd's I have and almost every single one she's like, "Who's that?"

She never actually bothers to listen to them because she has no idea what it is.  :Smiley

Too true.  I feel the exact same way.  My cousin has a shirt she made that says "MTV ruined my life".
I have to do a project for my english class where you mkae a soundtrack for a book (like it was a movie) and the book I'm doing is a period piece, so I thought about doing the Sofia Coppola thing where I have a bunch of new age songs that don't really fit the era. One of them is Feist's 1234 which I love! and Melody of a Fallen tree. I'm also big on the Decemberists. I live in their hometown, so that be the basis of my fetish Tongue
That sounds awesome!  I loved Marie Antoinette and the soundtrack is equally amazing.  Now I'm listening to Meloday of a Fallen Tree.

Thanks for the low-down on the Spice Girls, Rupe. What store were you in, may I ask?? Wink

I must agree with you guys about the mainstream music. All I have to say is thank god for iPods and MP3 players!! I don't even know what the radio is anymore...and that's definitely NOT a bad thing!! Tongue

I think one of the most fun things about music is listening to various genres and types and experiencing all kinds of different sounds. I think it's most fun when you can find more new bands and artists. It's not unusual for me to try listening to a new band or artist every other day and find something that I'm really into...stick with it for a few days and then repeat the process. It add such life, to life! ha!

I agree, I love finding new musicians. Of course, some of them aren't exactly what I feel like, and some I come back to later and find I really enjoy more than before. Then there are the ones which I love straight away.  Smiley

Music for me depends on if a song has a good melody or if I can dance to it or both. The only mainstream artists I like are John Mayer and Norah Jones, but I also like Spoon as well. I decided to download some of Elliott Smith's early work, I used to have the cds but I never really got a chance to listen closely to his music, and I am enjoying it very much. I really like the acoustic, lo-fi sound that he had before he got signed to the major labels. I had heard of him back when he wrote "Miss Misery" and was nominated for an Oscar for best song for "Good Will Hunting", but I was so into other music and my tastes back then were not very well defined. It was actually through someone who had a bit part on GG that I was introduced to his music, if anyone here remembers Curt, who played Reese McGinly in the second season finale, was interviewed for GG.org and sometimes posted here, we had a conversation at the time that Elliott Smith died and I can remember hearing his music on the local college radio station at that time, and not long afterward I bought some of his music and I found it to be excellent. For the most part, I like rock music and I also like classical, instrumental, I like movie scores as well, everything but country and rap and teen pop.

Right now i'm back to my broadway obsession, so besides holiday music i've been listening to lots of broadway soundtracks for the past few weeks. Mostly because wicked came to my state and me & my friend went to see it, and she fell in love with fiyero, so for the past few days me & my other friend keep singing "omigod you guys" from legally blonde the musical whenever she comes in.

I must admit, I've never heard anything from the Legally Blond musical. I love musicals! Though lately, there's been so many new ones that I can't keep up. I miss seeing them, so maybe I'll have to get to one this holiday season. Smiley

Does anyone like the Trans-Siberian Orchestra? I like their music around the holidays. I just saw a few videos of them live on Youtube. I thought that it was a full orchestra playing with the guitar players...but much to my surprise...it's NOT!  Shocked I was a bit disappointed because the sound is so full! It's amazing what you can do with a few violins and a synthesizer!! haha I do like the modern feel they have, yet classical in a way. Good stuff!

I have been listening to bands like Tygers of Pang Tang, W.A.S.P., Thin Lizzy, The Cult, Cheap Trick, SixxAM and the likes lately. I don't know why. It's so interesting to me how my musical "phases" take shape.

I was thinking about the music I listened to while growing up. I went through a big country phase, but that I normally keep on the down-low. Tongue That was when I was really young. Then I moved into Guns N' Roses, Metallica, AC>DC, Motley Crue, GWAR, and the 80's hair-metal bands. And from there, into a little alternative like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Weezer, Cake, WAX, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The INDIGO GIRLS along with Ani Defranco! I don't know what I was thinking! haha The alternative phase didn't last long. I was quickly turned off with the whole Kurt Cobain thing and Nirvana. From there it went to the punk scene like The Ramones, The Germs, Bikini Kill, The Misfits, New York Dolls, Johnny Thunder, Faith No More, etc. And then you can't forget the short lived phase of depressing bands like Nine Inch Nails, Type O' Negative, Nevermore, Opeth, Danzig, and the darker sounds of the death metal or black metal that I listened to during the later years of high school and shortly thereafter.

Then there were the bands and musicians that I liked all throughout, like Chuck Berry and Elvis, with a little Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, and some Cheap Trick thrown in for good measure. I have always wanted to keep my musical taste on the eclectic side and have never shut the door on new sounds. Though the one genre of music I never really got into much was the "pop" stuff. I don't know why exactly. It's interesting what you are pulled towards or drawn to, musically. And during what part of life you're drawn toward that genre.

What has your life in music looked like?

Cheers to the music thread! Thanks for putting up with all that rambling! Tongue
