Given that it's almost Halloween, these seem like appropriate choices.
Just for fun:
world class flaming *** from my past: "you call that **** music? sounds like noise to me"
teenaged me "what did you say turn it up?"
everything louder than everything else? good to go:
About the loudest stuff I could tolerate, back in the day (the '70s) was, oh, Bad Company, or Deep Purple. (And not all of their stuff, either.)
Bad Company -- their 2019 compilation album, Bad Company: Swan Song Years 1974-1983. (Great collection of their best-known tunes.)
Links to some of the tunes on the 57-song album ...
Can't Get Enough (of your love):
Ready For Love:
Feel Like Makin' Love:
Make art not friends
They were a huge part of the Rock scene for me and the wife, even before we married.
When they came on the radio we would shout out "GOOD SONG, TURN IT UP!!!"
I still do that, with Bad Company. And with dozens of the other classic, quality groups from the late-'60s and '70s.
I'm actually impressed with how well Bad Company's tunes stand the test of time. Few of them feel dated or out of step. Most of them still feel fresh and vibrant, as though some group recorded the thing just the other day. It's far better music than most of the electronica-sampled-remix junk one finds on the radio these days.
I still listen to what (for me) has become the soundtrack of the pandemic... "the Interstellar" soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and its remixes.
Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway
A bit of old-school soul, from two masters. They made two albums together. Wasn't nearly enough.
Their 1972 album, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway:
and their 1980 album, Roberta Flack Featuring Donny Hathaway, published posthumously following Hathaway's death.
A variety of albums by John Lee Hooker.
"One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." Yeah, baby.
Mean Mary and Blind Willie McTell. Used to have some very old 78 rpm "Race Records" with old-timey blues songs we worked up 50 years ago and enjoyed playing. Internet makes it possible to hear some sounds I've not heard in a very long time. Also makes it possible for new artists to get their stuff out there. Wish I knew how to do more with what I've found.
Tinsley Ellis -- pretty great blues/rock guitarist and vocalist.
Their 1988 album Georgia Blue:
Their 1992 album Trouble Time:
Their 2007 album Moment Of Truth:
You little Sadist you!
