    You got me going now.
    Here is another of my all time favourites. Been covered by everyone.
    This is "classics" territory. Sing along and you'll appreciate the timing.

    With Clark Griswald at 44, Miley Cyrus at 80, Wombats and Sharks, this years chart is full of talent, many of them local:

    Here is another Dylan song that I think is best rendered by someone else.
    "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts". It's long but I think the words and narrative are very clever, not to mention a strong melody - typical Dylan.

    Yes Mal, this is another perennial favourite of mine by Joan.
    I do wish she wasn't so much into "singalongs" however. Many of her best songs are ruined by her exhortations to the audience to sing-along.
    Might be fun in a live performance but just annoying as a soundtrack.

    Harlem Nocturne.

    Interesting noonar! I have a pretty broad appreciation of music, from the classics all the way through to some modern day popular compositions.

    I listened to this piece all the way through and found the staccato beat combined with repetition of beat and lyrics, unmusical, boring even agitating, the over use of electronics has always irritated me.

    Rap as a genre for various reasons has never impressed me, it's quite obviously a generational thing, I know most of us have a preference for the music we grew up with and tend to view anything outside of our comfort zone negatively.

    Would be interested to hear your views of musical clips posted by we (obviously older) members.

    Not trying to incite conflict, simply attempting to gain a better understanding of generational music preferences.

    "Don't push me coz I'm close to the edge". Shared the link for the effects only - there are plenty of other "genres" that have had the "8D" treatment I could have shared instead. I only listen to music not genres. Would never promote one "genre" over another, the creativity!. Rap is/was a game changer as were Blues, Rock, Punk, Disco, Electro, Folk, Metal etc etc etc, hence them being discussed here, like it or not. Seems to be generational and a rights of passage thing - always like what your parents dont. :-) Enjoy whatever it is you choose to listen to - and share if you find something creative even if it was made by the Devil himself.

    Another feeble attempt at comedy sorry Yelta - it's a line from a (notso) very famous rap song from the early days.

    Do you enjoy poetry and prose?, Dylan Thomas maybe? love him. Rap is often described as a modern day genre of poetry - not sure Shakespeare would disapprove. With the "dont push me line" I was trying to cover a lot of bases with a single line, from the same song another line that covers a lot of modern angst, "it's like a jungle some times it makes me wonder how I keep from going under". It spoke to a lot of people at that time... probably still does, there are hidden gems everywhere. Rock on. :-)

    Mumble rap, which is the patronising way to refer to this genre, is wildly popular amongst generation Z. Why? I have no idea, it's absolutely terrible but it does something that resonates with a large number of our younger population.

    It's a phase of music that will eventually leave and be replaced by something else.

    It's also important to note that mumble rap is not to be confused with traditional hip hop and rap music, particularly 90's and early 2000's music.

    Here is just one song from a guy that is sadly no longer with us and who I consider a musical genius - Warren Zevon.
    If you are unfamiliar with his work it is worth a listen to a "Best of".
    He wrote "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" and "Carmelita" which may be more familiar, particularly to Linda Ronstadt obsessives like me.
    Whilst possibly best known for tracks like "Werewolf of London", I prefer most of his other songs, like "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" for example.

    Like it Rocky, thought Zevon was a one hit wonder, had no idea.

    G'day Yelta
    I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Hip Hop
    At its worst I find some of the lyrics problematic and the beats can be a bit cliched
    At its best I think it is up there with the most powerful modern art forms
    I am by no means an expert on the genre, but you can trace the lineage from modern greats such as Baker Boy (who raps in english and Yolngu) and Donald Glover
    through to Grandmaster Flash, Gil Scott Heron, The Last Poets, Bo Diddley back to the likes of Leadbelly (and probably further). Essentially drawing from the same well as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez etc
    While the music could be interpreted at unmusical and boring due to lack of melody and harmony. The way the lyrics are delivered in a syncopated fashion, weaving in and around the rhythm can be exciting.
    Obviously it is not for everyone.
    By the way I have enjoyed almost all of the music that the coffee snob community has posted. This would have to be my current favourite thread
    Cheers

    Evening Dan, Hear where your coming from, they may be drawing from same well as Guthrie, Dylan and Baez, however the method of delivery is simply not music to my ears.

    Having said that, I never was a fan of syncopation, perhaps it's because I always considered it music for musicians trying to prove a point, a pissing contest, so to speak.

    Perhaps it's too complex for me to get my head around.

    By the way I certainly enjoy some, not all of the work of Bo Diddly and Leadbelly, blues legends, as well as Guthrie, both Woody and Arlo as well as Dylan and Baez.

    Alice's Restaurant was a part of my adolescence that I remember fondly.
    There was a group of us that used to sing it (with three part harmony) in class when I was in my last year of high school. Must have driven the teachers crazy.
    It is a unique piece of music and I would hope anyone that loves music and has a sense of humour and social conscience is familiar with.
    The other side of the vinyl was "The Motorcycle Song" which was quirky.
    It is fitting that Woody's son produced such an iconic piece of music.

    Don't think I'm alone in finding this a very moving piece of music.

    Was also a pretty good movie.

    ETTA JAMES, KEITH RICHARDS ROBERT CRAY-Hoochie Coochie Gal

    Not the best quality video but a great session, you will need to turn it up, watch for Chuck Berry at the very end "so this is Etta James"

    From https://www.cbc.ca/strombo/music-2/rip-etta-james.html the following

    "The Root website also posted this excerpt from Keith Richards' 2010 memoir 'Life', in which he talks about his love for Etta:"

    "Another great singer and a girl after my own heart -- as well as my bride in a rock-and-roll "marriage" -- is Etta James. She'd been making records from the early '50s, when she was a doo-wop singer. She's expanded into every range since then ... Now, Etta had been a junkie. So we found reciprocation almost immediately ... It takes one look in the eye for one to know another. Incredibly strong, Etta, with a voice that could take you to hell or take you to heaven. And we hung in a dressing room, and like all ex-junkies, we talked about the junk. And why did we do this, the usual soul-searching. This culminated in a backstage wedding, which in show business terms is like, you get married but you're not really married. You exchange vows and stuff, on the top of the backstage stairs. And she gave me a ring, I gave her a ring, and actually that's where I decided her name's Etta Richards. She'll know what I mean."

    I've always been a big John Denver fan.
    I refuse to be influenced by the self-appointed arbiters of what is supposed to be considered "cool" (whatever the hell that is) and what is not.
    This IMHO is the best song he ever did and just about as good as anything anybody else ever did also. It appears to be not at all well known.
    Musically, it ticks all the boxes for me. Interested to hear what others think.

    Some people like to eat tripe while others, me included, find it nauseating.
    Some people like to listen to jazz while others find it grating. There's just no accounting for taste.
    Listing my musical likes and dislikes is pointless. Suffice to say that if it sounds good to me I don't care who else likes it.

    Ps I really applaud other people's choices in music when they listen to it through their earphones.

    Love a bit of jazz. A preference for the big band jazz of the 1930s like Cab Calloway (he of Blues Brothers fame: Minnie the Moocher)

    Once I get started, there are a few more clips from The Last Waltz that I always need to revisit. The film starts with what is the last encore of the concert, after a marathon of more than five hours:
    Don't Do It:



    The Band were just an incredibly well-oiled machine

    The Band with Neil Young (and Joni Mitchell), then with Van the Man, and finally Bob:







    Apart from the songs themselves, there are so many stories told in the details of the film. That wordless communication on stage...
