What music are you listening to?

I've been on a road trip south, so a lot of "Country" on the airwaves. I usually like the older stuff more, but Faith Hill and Tim McGraw aren't bad...

This is more my type.
 
I think I posted this before; unfortunately no one commented on it...


This was on an old compilation; I found this track to be kind of mysterious.

You shouldn't take it personally...most of these posts don't get comments.:)

If I could understand the lyrics, I might be able to respond to your comment.
 
I can't believe he hasn't won anything yet on the Grammy's tonight. Someone else posted one of his songs, I think. Ed Sheeran-I See Fire. The visuals are from The Hobbit.

 

Norwegian music is very similar to Cajun I noticed
 
 
It was a really good movie, and the music in the movie was great, including this wonderful performance of the exquisitely beautiful Il Dolce Suono (The Sweet Sound) from Donizetti's opera Lucia di Lammermoor:

From Wiki:
Lucia descends into madness, and on her wedding night, while the festivities are still being held in the Great Hall, she stabs her new husband, Arturo, in the bridal chamber. Disheveled, unaware of what she has done, she wanders in the Great Hall, recalling her meetings with Edgardo and imagining herself married to him.
Donizetti intended the aria to be accompanied by the eerie sound of the glass harmonica, though this instrument is often replaced in performance by a flute.
An arrangement of the aria was featured in the film The Fifth Element, sung by the alien character Diva Plavalaguna voiced by Inva Mula.

The lyrics-Italian and English:
Il dolce suono mi colpì di sua voce!
Ah, quella voce m'è qui nel cor discesa!
Edgardo! io ti son resa. Edgardo! Ah! Edgardo, mio! Si', ti son resa!
fuggita io son da' tuoi nemici. (nemici)
Un gelo me serpeggia nel sen!
trema ogni fibra!
vacilla il piè!
Presso la fonte meco t'assidi alquanto! Si', Presso la fonte meco t'assidi.
Ohimè, sorge il tremendo fantasma e ne separa!
Qui ricovriamo, Edgardo, a piè dell'ara.
Sparsa è di rose!

Un'armonia celeste, di', non ascolti?
Ah, l'inno suona di nozze!
Il rito per noi s'appresta! Oh, me felice!
Oh gioia che si sente, e non si dice!
Ardon gl'incensi!
Splendon le sacre faci, splendon intorno!
Ecco il ministro!
Porgimi la destra!
Oh lieto giorno!
Al fin son tua, al fin sei mio,
a me ti dona un Dio.
Ogni piacer più grato,
mi fia con te diviso
Del ciel clemente un riso
la vita a noi sarà.

The sweet sound of his voice struck me!
Ah, that voice has entered my heart!
Edgardo! I surrender to you, oh my Edgardo!
I have escaped from your enemies.
A chill creeps into my breast!
Every fibre trembles!
My foot falters!
Sit down by the fountain with me a while!
Alas, the tremendous phantom arises and separates us!
Let us take refuge here, Edgardo, at the foot of the altar.
It is scattered with roses!

A heavenly harmony, tell me, do you not hear it?
Ah, the marriage hymn is playing!
They are preparing the rite for us! Oh, how happy I am!
Oh joy that is felt but not said!
The incense is burning!
The holy torches are shining, shining around!
Here is the minister!
Give me your right hand!
Oh joyful day!
At last I am yours, at last you are mine,
A god gives you to me.
Let me share
The greatest pleasures with you,
A smile from merciful heaven,
Life will be ours.
 
I actually came on to post my favorite performance from last night's Grammy Awards:)

Hozier and Annie Lenox: Take Me To Church and I Put A Spell On You

She's 60 years old and she's still great and totally believable... she showed them all how it's really done...Go, Annie.

Here are the lyrics to Take Me To Church (The Goddess Lives :grin:) and I Put A Spell On You


"Take Me To Church"

My lover's got humour
She's the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody's disapproval
I should've worshipped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She's the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

'We were born sick, ' you heard them say it

My Church offers no absolutes
She tells me, 'Worship in the bedroom.'
The only heaven I'll be sent to
Is when I'm alone with you—

I was born sick,
But I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I'm a pagan of the good times
My lover's the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That's a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We've a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am Human
Only then I am Clean
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

The lyrics to I Put a Spell On You-
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
Stop the things you do
Watch out, I ain't lying
I can't stand
No running around
I can't stand
No putting me down
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine, oh yeah
Stop the things you do
Watch out, I ain't lying
Oh, oh, I love you, I love you
I love you anyhow
I don't care if you don't want me
I'm yours right now
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine, mine, mine
Oh, ooh you're mine
 
Agree regarding Conquest of Paradise.
I don`t like rap Maleth, but I didn`t think it was so bad in that Linkin Park track...:)

....it kind of breaks the flow of the good sounds and rythm in my opinion, but of course many many people like it, seems to be part of most pop these days :)

This is my favourite from Annie Lenox

as for Hozier here is a more direct meaning of the lyrics, no doubt would be banned in Russia = Propoganda and if Church = Religion then what about Islam + Africa (maybe exclude south Africa and a couple of more countries) of and the horror of Persecutions visa vi homosexuality, defiantly not history but still fakeness ignorance still alive and well in 2015

I'm pretty much in agreement with Luc Besson (movie director) sens of beauty. Visuals, music choices and even humor.

Yes, it`s definitely liked by many, Maleth.
I like music from lots of genres with some exceptions, rap is one. I don`t like heavy metal either and I know there is a style called Rap-metal which fuses the two..so I can safely say I wont be putting that on any of my playlists:startled:


Also....have a great time this Friday at the carnival :)
 
although i like traditional folk/pagan

i am not outside modern world,

enjoy



i think the city is zagreb
