    now it’s ” I will survive”


    I’m not religious but at the moment I’m enjoying some Gregorian chanting and lots of natural sounds set tovery gentle and relaxing music.


    listening to emilie autumn and checking on here before I cook dinner


    My new turntable came yesterday! 😁 I had recently found a BJ Thomas LP, so I played Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head as the first song with the new machine. We tested the included radio and The Police were on ☺️ then I grabbed one of the few remaining cassette tapes since the turntable also has a slot in the side for tapes! One of my pen pals from France had made me a tape years ago with pop and rap, so we heard G Squad. (Must take the info he sent with the tape and go on YouTube to find as many groups as possible. Still love French songs, from Canada or around the world.)

    In the car, I’ve been playing the Love Riot CD from Newsboys.


    That’s cool, rebeccajpand! I love, love, LOVE music: and always will. I am forever listening to CDs and watching YouTube. I do also remember cassette tapes: I loved them. I recorded records from my dad’s record collection onto tapes. The album I recall copying is a Patsy Cline song collection. I also recorded CDs onto tapes. Such as Annie Lennox with her album “Diva”. I did two tapes: one for me and one for my best friend at the time. I recorded Madonna’s “Erotica” album, too. It was actually a really good recording I did. In recent years I have used iTunes to record songs onto blank CDs. These turned out well. I have around 5 or 6 of them. I still listen to them to this day. I am a HUGE music fan: I cannot get enough.

    Enjoy your new turntable and tape player, rebeccajpand! Mix tapes were the business, weren’t they? Another good friend of mine gave me a mix tape of Queen songs years ago. I had been a huge Queen fan back in the day. Nowadays I prefer U2. But Queen hold such happy memories for me. Real nostalgia.


    I like a lot of Queen songs and some U2 as well. I used to make my own CDs for a while, but now we just listen to a full CD all the way through if it’s not a YouTube mix.

    It’s funny how a word or phrase can bring a song to mind. That’s usually how I end up sharing music with the kids that they’ve never heard. It tends to be 80’s or 90’s, but sometimes older than that.

    I have not put any music on today (gasp!) but I’m looking forward to the arrival of a Bond CD and one from Chelsea Amber. Lately, if I hear a great song on the Stingray music channel we like from the TV provider, I might look for their CD on Amazon and put it on my wishlist. 🙂


    I used to make my own CD’s too when I was travelling a lot and had a CD player in the car. I compiled them from specificsingers / groups or music types.


    Girls Aloud’s “Sound Of The Underground” from 2003. A classic pop album that will never age.

    I LOVED Girls Aloud: and still do.


    I’m listening to The Corrs! 🙂 I started with the Best Of CD and I’ve also got Talk On Corners on my computer, so the music player started playing that automatically after the first CD was done.


    I have recently gotten into the Spice Girls: their music had been fab. I really like them now. Oh: I also am still fond of Queen. I had been a massive Queen fan as a teenager. Their music shall live forever.


    “Who wants to live forever?” Queen!

    It’s so funny to me – and very telling of my personality – that I wasn’t interested in the Spice Girls until their popularity was starting to fade. I totally resisted, maybe because I didn’t want to just like whatever was popular and instead wanted to like it on my own. Kinda silly, I suppose, to resist popular things… Anyway, I thought their movie was funny when I finally saw it, and I like a lot of their songs now. 🙂

    Last night, I checked out a list of Canadian musicians that I’d noted during a New Year’s Eve special, and I liked most of them. A few recommendations from what I heard again: Random Recipe (rap), Brett Kissel (country), and Lights (pop). Also rediscovered Love Inc. because the female singer, Simone Denny, did one of their songs (You’re A Superstar) on the TV special.

    That reminds me that I wanted to listen again to Marie-Mai from Quebec… I saw her on a cell provider’s ad recently!


    Your talk of Canadian groups reminds me of Zombie Girl Rebecca. Not to everyone’s taste but I have a gothic leaning. I have a cd. This one is my favourite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ef5o7mtQz7k&list=PLDG3zXuTm_StsLotDFCdnoiDsgubLGleu




    Rebecca, Loverboy might be “before your time,” but to me, they still rock.  I can count the number of concerts I’ve attended on one hand, and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Loverboy at the now-demolished Palladium Amphitheater in Cripple Creek.  Here’s one of their earliest, from 1980, I believe (Holy cow!  Am I that old?!):

    Turn Me Loose


    Love that song! I can get into things even if they’re before my time – I was listening to 50’s tunes when I was a kid, along with whatever was current. 🙂 And when I saw the movie “Swing Kids,” I found that I liked earlier music as well! I could pretty much be dropped in any time in the history of music and there’d be something I liked. Totally awesome chameleon ability. 😉 😉

    I’m listening to my dishwasher, which is working for now. (It quit last night during the last bit of the drying cycle. I can deal with that!)

    Earlier in the day, I had our favourite Stingray channel on (TV-radio, let’s call it) and heard a favourite song called So What by Lovecollide. I decided it was finally time to buy the CD! Hopefully I’ll like more than just that one song…


    I am addicted to U2 ATM. In fact, I’ve been a fan of theirs for a good 5 years. Their music is original, catchy and just brilliant. I love their music videos, too. My favourite music video of U2 is “I Will Follow”. Bono was so young then: and really attractive. U2 have been around forever: or at least in the mainstream arena from 1980. They’ve got the magic.

    I also love Sade. The music is romantic and nostalgic.

    Special times.
