Mood Music

No, I'm not talking about Barry White "mood music" . Just got to thinking about my music listening habits, and realized I that I rarely just listen to a hodge-podge of music genres at any one time, but instead kinda get "stuck" on a certain artist and listen to that particular music for the time being. I guess it just depends upon my mood. For whatever reason, I have been in a "Randy Newman" mood as of late, really been enjoying going back in the archives and listening to his stuff. I wonder what the reception would be now days to some of his stuff.....in our so politically correct times? I always loved the way Newman made his points through his songwriting with his sardonic wit.

I am there with you. I can jump around but generally stick with one artist or genre before moving on to the next.

I go with whatever my mood is which usually means one genre' at a time. When we play in the bars we do a large variety of styles to see what the people there might like, then go from there.

My dad was a Glenn Miller fan. I heard this a lot growing up.

An acquired taste, and a good one at that.

Really depends on the mood. Some memorable moods are Brubeck, Highwaymen, and even Enya on occasion.

Most dependable mood music? Jimmy Buffett. I hear him and I'm back at The Camp.
Unconventional wisdom is seldom either.

Every time you think you've become too cynical, the world finds a way to teach you that the real problem is that you haven't become cynical enough

Free speech is free speech is free speech. There is no qualifier.

If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention.

Never attribute malice to that what can be explained as stupidity.

Unborn lives matter too.
