    What song do you absolutely HAVE TO…

    turn up as high as you possibly can? My friend mentioned that she must listen to Led Zeppelin at full blast, to which I agree, but on reflection THIS song I not only have to turn up to eardrum-blasting levels but if I hear it I cannot do anything else but listen. I could be having a conversation with Jesus himself and I’d have to say “hold that thought a few minutes…”

    What’s your favorite piece of rockin’ ear candy?

    Here’s mine…fucking love it…TURN IT UP!

      2. The only way to listen to Hendrix is to turn it up to 11.

      Or the Thirteenth Floor Elevators.

        19. YES! I'll see your Bach and raise you a Mahler

        Heard this one at St. Martins in the Field in London on a trip with my Dad.  It’s no toe-tapper but it’s amazing.

        And my personal favorite (that isn’t lute or viols….or polyphonic)

      8. Great tune. Love Split Love's cover of How Soon Is Now

      was the theme song of the Lost Girl Canadian TV series.  But the Smith’s version is the best.

      The classic below is my “must be heard at 11” favorite ~ but Zep’s, Immigrant Song is a close second.

      10. I typically turn up the volume to drown out loudmouth commuters or

      street musicians doing a gig on the subway, and if the energy of a song is in sync with my current mood, then yes, I turn it up loud.  Here’s a track from the Pet Shop Boys’ latest LP which I’ve been getting into:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1nUIN_Vp3c

      But I also will listen to purely instrumental music like this.  One favorite is WillBe’s Tribal City:

          please

           

          just saying: THERE IS NO SONG I “HAVE TO” HAVE and nothing I ‘have to’ have other than food/water/shelter.

          there are many things I’d like to have but maybe in my next life.

            31. Yep, I got that

            “Have to” is clearly not literal because as you pointed out one only has to nourish ones body and sleep. Seriously this was just a fun little survey, no need to get pedantic or even answer if not in the lighthearted spirit which this post was intended. This is not some deep philosophical question.

              32. unfortunately, survival struggle = preoccupation with something that might give

              meaning to the experience instead of being drowned in what increasingly seems like distraction

              not meaning to be offensive, just where things are at for me as v you

              it is what it is

                I have my own preoccupations, like a crippling chronic disease for starters, but I try not to let it color everything in my life. I certainly don’t respond to fun or frivolous posts in the Bar & Grill with all the joie de vivre of Eeyore with a bad case of hemeroids.

                I’m sorry you’re having a bad time.

                    I don’t get where this is coming from or why you’re even choosing to continue this but I asked a fun question and you came in with an answer that was not relevant to the question and you’re getting nasty about it too. This is not a contest over who has a worse disease and I’m not going to get bullied into joining you in your rotten mood. I don’t give a shit if you think this was a frivolous question…no one forced you to read this thread or answer it.

      36. Funny choice for an atheist, I admit…

      But the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah is one of mine:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUZEtVbJT5c

      I sang in choir all through school (long time ago) and this song was a goosebump-producer when we did it well.

      Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.

          That one and “I Don’t Care Anymore” are my favs from him. Anything Van Morrison is feel good turn up the music- music and Queen. I love Queen too.

        I love anything that mixes in a MiddleEastern vibe.  Thievery Corporation does that a lot – also does a lot of Indian overdubbing.  Like this:

          47. I like Theivery Corporation :)

          Also Transglobal Underground. Natacha Atlas sings/performs with them, too.

          Banco De Gaia has plenty of Asian and Indian influences. Toby Marks is the creator/dj. I’ve been buying many of his albums lately off of Bandcamp (because it’s cheaper than getting the physical album shipped from England, and I can d/l in FLAC format.) You can get a taste of more of his music on his site (videos and a Soundcloud link there) :)

      43. Anything from Show-Ya.

      Show-Ya are one of the very best hard rock bands on the planet…and have been since the mid-80’s. They’ve never really gotten the recognition outside of Japan their music (and fantastic live shows) should have garnered them, partly due to language barriers (their songs are almost all in Japanese) and earlier in their career the notion that “girls can’t play metal/hard rock.” Still going strong (and looking fabulous…these women are all in their 50’s). And if you’re not playing their stuff cranked up, you’re doing it wrong. Some recent live stuff and a studio vid for one of their newer songs:

      44. There are a bunch. But, 'Light My Fire' by the Doors is probably my fav.

      The longass musical interlude is really peaceful to me. I played that mofo over and over again when Dubya Bush was in office.
