The "what are you listening to now" thread

Happy 75th, Bob!

Listening to the finale of The Voice. The first hour is a repeat of last night, but it's all good.

Hm. Watching a woman with a huge bow and a black and white wig that covers her face, singing from a full-body haystack, with two guys and a girl dancing backup wearing leotards and tutus. I do enjoy Sia's (sp) music though. Really different.

I LOVE Bob Dylan! He's such a living legend.

Tyler just got picked up a half hour ago, and after an hour of listening to him playing with his monster trucks complete with very loud sound effects, I'm just listening to quiet now.

Heard this on Pandora today. They played the superior 8 minute extended version -- with its funky/disco interlude in the middle. This was the theme song from 1980's American Gigolo. I remember my mom and her GF seeing that at the movies in 1980 and they both were infatuated with Richard Gere. :)

"We live for Love" song... Pat Bentar. Heralded in the 1980's. The 80's were about to happen. Sony Walkman, stereos, excess ...all that. This song came out when all that was about to explode. It did.

Here's that song years later.

I love Pat Benatar. She rocks. That's a great song. Yeah the 80's are probably the best decade in terms of music. And remember the boomboxes we had? Sanyo, Hitachi, Panasonic? Those were our iPods, and they put out some watts!

My first love! 1984. Madonna. It was a year later that I fell in love with a non celebrity -- schoolmate named Jessica when I was 13.

Oh Kaneohegirl. My heart aches for you. Perhaps it is time for you to take a vacation where other mainlanders go. Back home. But just for a visit. You do have to come back here eventually. That's the hard part.

Speaking of The Sounds of Silence. Paul Simon has a new record out called Stranger to Stranger. I enjoyed it a lot this morning via NPR's First Listen. Not sure how long these links work. First Listen: Paul Simon, 'Stranger To Stranger'

Gonna check out his latest music, thanks.
The guy is a treasure. Poet and songwriter all in one.
"At the Zoo". That song is almost quantum. It's light but heavy at the same time.

Tapping my feet and singing along to The Very Best of Sheryl Crow. I think I may have to loop it all afternoon. So nice and puts me right into the "zone."

I don't care what anyone thinks about this 1982 song. I think it's brilliant.

I missed the whole music scene from the 70's to the present. Other than some Beatles (Yesterday, Hey Jude) songs and The Bee Gees, I haven't a clue when my kids talk about the songs they love.

At the Zoo was the flip side of The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy). On the 45. How old does that make me?

I just took a listen to this - Bruce Willis singing and believe it or not, it's not that bad! But then I remember his Bartles and James commercials and I remember thinking he was pretty good then.
