So today I "completed" a project I've done versions of over the years.  It started out as trying to trace the development of my musical taste over time, with a song per year representing what I was listening to heavily and the various shifts along the way.  Many years it was just too agonizing to pick a single song, so I bumped it up to two per year, then three, and some years I was even having to go over that.  But what I figured out wound up making sense mathematically turned out to essentially be "My Musical Taste in 100 Songs".  Basically chronologically, though there was a lot of hand-wringing over whether to slot them in the first time I was exposed to them vs. when I was most heavily listening to them.  Also a lot of aggravation over absolute favorites (particularly in retrospect) vs. what was actually most significant at the time in terms of shifts and turns.  That makes more recent years quite tricky as well, since I don't know where everything will lead to down the road.  And then some more finessing as I found that certain songs weren't in Spotify and I noticed with the prototype in front of me some obvious gaps and over-duplication.  It's tricky when each song is essentially an iceberg, representing sometimes countless others, and whether each additional song is unique enough to add something to the collection, sometimes overvaluing variety over sheer fondness for certain well worn in styles.  But overall it was one of the most enjoyable musical projects I've taken on in awhile.
Sounds fascinating!

I cannot recommend the Silk Sonic album highly enough.

Gold by Spandau Ballet
I know technically it isn't....but it absolutely is the worst song ever.  Why?  because if you work in a office and there is a douche, sleazy, power hungry twat in your company - you can guarantee this will be their Karaoke song.

Well in the UK anyway.

On a bit of a Rush binge as I seem to do every December and I’m once again amazed at the change in their sound in just 10 years from ‘74-‘84 (and I guess the change from ‘84-‘94 is also pretty significant). Compare that to say Dream Theater from 2011 to now and there’s been nothing near as crazy as a shift. I know new technology played a huge part but it’s staggering what they were able to achieve in such a relatively short time.

I'd love to hear CHVRCHES do an album called "BVRNING", and have it be all happy synthpop/synthwave covers of trve kvlt frosty tunes from Burzum, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Gorgoroth and such.

I'm just bumping this thread out of the blue to say I got my package in the mail of a Hockey Jersey that has Shinedown's Leave A Whisper album cover on the front and my name on the back.  Despite my polarized feelings of Shinedown nowadays, their debut album still holds up well for me and I'm glad that they partnered with someone to create a hockey jersey of the album cover and many other cool-looking merch.



Now I just need Alter Bridge to do the same and that jersey would be an instant purchase.

Aha, when I created my "your random musical thoughts" thread, I was probably subconsciously remembering this one.  I guess they're a bit different, but a similar general idea.

Bumping this thread up again but I'm having a few drinks and just saw a new video of one of my favorite guitar players so I had to share:

I have an ominous feeling about losing several impactful musicians this year. I saw a pic of Ozzy at some grocery store and he looked like he had one foot in the grave. Then I started thinking of all the bands I grew up listening to and pondering their age(s). Hopefully I'm wrong!

The spate of celebrity deaths this year is something we are just going to have to get used to as I predict that the years to come will have at least as many such deaths.

The reason is pretty obvious:  there are simply more famous people than there used to be, so it shouldn’t surprise us that in any given year, more famous people die.

Why are there more famous people? The answer is in the growth of popular culture and other forms of entertainment, such as sports, over the course of the 20th century. This generation is really the first to deal with the aging and death of movie and TV stars who came to their fame in the post-war era.

This is particularly true of TV stars as they did not exist in any meaningful way until the 1950s. TV actors who acquired their fame in their 20s and 30s in the 1950s and 60s are now anywhere from 70 to 100 years old. From an actuarial perspective, they “should” be dying off around now

One of my favorite performances by Russell Allen:

Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Dreams
https://youtu.be/kLIxGi6fQTY?t=29

The Quality isn't that bad for a phone cam. I even ripped the audio back in the day and have it on my phone. It popped up in my feed so I thought I'd share.

Not sure if there's a topic anywhere about The National – they're easily one of my all-time favorite bands. Anyway, rumor has it they might actually drop a second new album later this year! Two new songs have been released and one of them, 'Space Invader' is a great song - check it out!

Wow for someone that was up Bosk’s ass in the donation thread, you’ve sure been pimping your website quite freely around here. Funny how everyone of your posts lately directs to your site for free hits….
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Yesterday I saw a tweet lamenting that people are viewing Olivia Rodrigo (who is generally awful IMO) as this generation’s Avril Lavigne, and how this is a lost generation. I LOL’ed at the thought of anyone pining for the days when Avril Lavigne was popular.

As someone who disproportionately likes European music, I think this is hard to compare though.  I've heard people from many different countries complain about how awful their mainstream music is, and people from other countries aren't continually bombarded with the worst of it the way you are when you live there.  Would probably need more opinions from people who spent significant time living in numerous countries to get a better idea. 

Also, I think people in general who aren't heavily into music probably don't realize where a lot of music is from.  There are tons of bands on the radio I would guarantee a random person would guess wrong about where they're actually from.

Man, Pink! is one of the surprisingly enduring artists from the late 90s/early 00s. I would have lost a lot of money back then if you had bet me that she would still be popular 20+ years later.

I personally find it quite fascinating that people complain about Backing Tracks.

Yet, I hear no complaints that Queen has never, ever played the middle section of Bohemian Rhapsody live and has utilized "Backing Tracks" for this when playing the song live.

I actually pm'd Kev if it was ok to pick up the top xx ranking so I do plan on starting one after I get back from vacation. I'll probably put the OP up while on vacation to start getting lists in.

I thought about wanting to post this in the Sons of Apollo thread, since Bumblefoot is also in this band, but that may not be the right spot.  Anywho, there is this band called Art of Anarchy that had former vocalists Scott Weiland and Scott Stapp in their band.  Now they got a new vocalist in the fold, Jeff Scott Soto.  They got a new song out.  Make what you will of it.
