      How could I forget the late great Buddy Holly?...it was this month...you know the rest.


      now now... lets not forget his ex. Also would help if most of the Clear Channel big wigs were aboard... the day music got its hope back.

            Too many in my collection to pick. I'm gradually converting my vinyl to digital and when I listen I normally have playback in random mode. I guess a related question is "If you were stuck on an uninhabited island with nothing more than all the food you could eat for the rest of your life and a great sound system what record would you select to accompany you?" I would select a record by a formally local Minneapolis band, the first album, self titled, (I'm cheating because it's a double) by the band Gypsy. I pick this because it's a great album (er, pair of albums) and it brings back nice memories.

              I still wish it had been Kevin Federline in that plane instead of Buddy.

              Or at least one of his parents.

                  These days, that list gets shorter and shorter. When I was younger--I had musical tastes that some might call, er...questionable. Lets just say I was a big adult contemporary fan. There were a ton of albums I kept going back to, by Celine Dion, Michael Bolton (yeah I know), old school Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Whitney, etc.. I was much into the production and musical arrangements, rather than the artists themselves, who I think were often interchangeable. My heroes were people like David Foster, Walter A., Babyface, Narada Michael Walden, etc. Now, I can only take that music in small doses, or I start getting a toothache. But whether you like that music or not, there's no question the musical arrangements and production were top-notch, and I feel that I learned a lot musically by listening to them.

                  Nowadays, it seems the only thing I've consistenly gone back to is classic Elton John. I love the sound of Tumbleweed Connection, Madman, Honky Chateau, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. You can't beat that early to mid '70s string of albums he put out.

                  Everything else I sort of go through phases with. Some exceptional stuff I've listened to recently is John Mayer-Continuum, Arcade Fire-Neon Bible, Wilco's latest one, Regina Spektor-Begin To Hope. There's one I'm currently planning on purchasing and that's the one from the guy who calls himself Owl City. From what I've heard so far, the guys a darn good songwriter. So that CD should keep me entertained for a few months. And then I'll probably move on to something else.

                      Anytime I need a jolt of psychic energy, Deep Purple's Made in Japan will do the job.

                          this olde son findes himself going back again and again to my own tunes.
                          Just the other day one of my schoolmates was singing one of mine to himself during class break. (OLDE LOVE)
                          I was amazed and humbled.
                          I recognized it and mentioned it to my school chum.
                          He just went on and on about how he couldn't get it out of his head. wow!

                          this is one of my faves.
                          A jazz type cover that was recorded by me a few years ago. It does something to me every time. MY EVERGREEN thanks for lettin' me share. TD

                            Soul music of the late 60's/early 70's.

                            I didn't buy that music. It was just ever-present in my young life. Hearing Billy Paul, Issac Hayes, Bloodstone, The Manhattans, Bill Withers, The Jackson 5ive. This music played in my neighborhood. It was the music of our older sisters and brothers. It poured out of car windows and AM radios from next door's garage. Through our older sibling's closed bedroom doors. Or dripping out of my mom's car AM when I could convince her to tune in pop music...

                            I love it.
