Miguel - Skywalker
I second this! Imagine Dragons - Shots (feat. Broiler) [Broiler Remix] is truly an amazing on a decent set of speakers or headphones.
Too bad my HomePod that is supposed to be delivered tomorrow still says "Label Created". . No movement yet.
Gotta go with Frank Sinatra and a nice Big Band accompaniment - just not sure which song yet. Then for the wife, Yorktown from the musical Hamilton.
Morning Song - Avett Brothers
Thanks for the interesting list, I'll take inspiration with some stuff in it. There's a lot of thing I like, so why not try those that I don't know yet. Like it just has been said, good music is always good music
Disco T*ts by Tove Lo.
I let Siri start the music at the end of the set-up: Arctic Monkeys - Fake Tales of San Francisco, The Killers - Jenny Was a Friend of Mine, Bastille - Weight of Living, Pt. 2.
Not what I would have thought to chose but all great songs i haven't heard for ages!!!
Oh, and they sound great!
Edit: it's just queued up some Wolf Alice — I'm loving this!!!
Yes! I am planning to play Cut To The Feeling first.
As my avatar suggests the first song I would play is When Doves Cry. Second would be either something from Zeppelin or the live version of Mozambique from Traffic.
Didn't go with music.....airplayed the start of Star Wars A New Hope from my Apple TV 4K .
1. Lacuna Coil - Heaven’s a Lie
2. Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower
3. Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk
John Wayne - Lady Gaga
I'm So Afraid (Live) by Fleetwood Mac, from the album The Dance
Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon
Michael Kiwanuka - Cold Little Heart
Theme song for Big Little Lies
watched the last bit of the movie Drumline... Amazing!
I did this and I actually really hated the way Cut to the Feeling sounded on it. And it's one of my favorites. Maybe it's how I positioned the speaker. But it seems to isolate the vocals too much and makes them sound shrill. After you play it I'm curious to know your thoughts.
I want some jazz and classical recordings with HUGE soundstage to see if the HomePod delivers. What are the best recommendations?
Secondly, With classical music overall the HomePod does not deliver (maybe no speaker can) when the listener’s vantage point is 20 or 30 rows in the back of the hall, theater or what have you.
Thirdly, the HomePod struggles to bring out instrument detail. I realize not all music is recorded “hot” where even at mid volume instruments can sound great but it just is not enough. I want to listen to what I want per se, if I have to fish for recordings for good sound then what good is listening with the HP?
For me it was Pink Floyd’s Wish you Were Here. That was the first track, followed by Dark Side of the Moon.
Then a couple albums by a band I used to roadie with - Blues and Rhythm and Blues (so I could compare the sound to something I know inside out.)
Then Pink Floyd’s Pulse.
Then Eric Church’s Chief (shut up, I like country )
Then Eagles - Hotel California.
Followed by Avicii and Tiesto.
Finished off with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
(Yes I have an eclectic taste in music.)
Now it’s just anything and everything I’m in the mood for.
Kids beat me to it and put on One Direction. Lol
Jeezz, I hope you’d disabled the listening history
Sultans of Swing.... and it has to be this version - great drumming, bass and fantastic solo....
Might not be your first song, but I recommend cranking the volume, playing Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight, and then sit back and wait...
EDIT - for any not familiar with the song, don't give up on it, just let it play and enjoy...
I’ll give that a go, when the wife’s out. She doesn’t half complain about music above a bloody whisper - she’s not a fan of noise in general. But it’s been a while since I’ve listened to Phil so probably overdue.
My wife's the same, I have to get in my "Hey Siri, turn the volume to 100%" requests when she's out. I was just sitting thinking about songs that would be good to demo the HomePod, scrolling through my library and I saw Phil sitting there and it was like the light bulb in a cartoon. The best bit, if you haven't listened to it for a long time, is the anticipation...
