    It's kind of odd how this is a community discussion forum attached to an Apple news site, and of all the things I could have in common with other members, it seems my taste in music is most often shared to some degree—Supertramp, Philip Glass, Röyksopp, Phil Collins, Erik Satie, Agnes Obel, etc.

    Anyway, tonight I'm listening to Blue Oyster Cult's I'm Burning for You:



    Coincidentally, I first hard Philip Glass in university as well. A film as literature professor swapped the assignments I handed in on a thumb drive with a few hundred MP3s; Glass' were among them. That was also how I was introduced to one of my current favorite bands, The Magnetic Fields.

    All great musical choices. Also this explains how some posters I enjoy interacting with don't even use Apple anymore, but unlike some other ex-fruit fans don't make post after post on how Apple sux and we are Koolaid drinkers (btw Koolaid is really awful as I recall it) mirrored by the drone like fanboys who likely have pictures of Steve, Tim and Jony in a shrine.

    Anyhow just listened to Peter Gabriel - Come Talk to Me.

    I saw this song live in 1995 in Montreal.

    Listening tonight to music of Italian jazz composer and pianist Kekko Fornarelli, tracks from the album Room of Mirrors (2011). This track is Dream and Compromise.

    A treat for you, in case you haven't heard about this:

    "Orson Welles reprised his role of Harry Lime from the celebrated 1949 film adaptation of Graham Greene's novel The Third Man. The radio series is a "prequel" to the film, and depicts the many misadventures of con-artist Lime in a somewhat lighter tone than the character's villainy in the film."

    Some red wine and Porcupine Tree tonight. Things could be worse.

    That Wilson guy sure knows how to write a tune. The whole "Arriving Somewhere..." DVD is worth checking out, if you're so inclined.

    Gosh.

    I hadn't known this at all; thank you for sharing.

    Ran into them for first time after their Fear of a Blank Planet album was released. Haunting music even now. Managing to create a thoroughly engaging album about alienation still astounds me, yet there are still musicians who can do it.

    A great, great record! Thinking about it I would say that FoaBP and the Nil Recurring EP are probably my favorite works of theirs.

    And yeah, I agree with this 100%.

    Horrifically distorted classical music while on hold with my medical insurance company.

    I apologize to classical music for being so unfairly treated. I do not know what it is, but still...

    Oh man, I remember years ago some organization I was calling had "Another Day in Paradise" by Phil Collins as the music for when you were queueing on the phone, and that was some horrendous crap let me tell you. It seemed like a vinyl record was played too slowly in an underground bunker somewhere, then that was recorded on an answering machine, after which that tape was stretched, scratched and god knows what else and the end result of all this was what was on the phone for a good 45 minutes.

    Thinking back about it, it just as well may have not been Another Day in Paradise, but it did sound eerily similar.

    I feel you.

    Oh I dislike that too, so much... and there's nothing one can do about it because setting phone down and cranking up an alternative means possibly missing their pickup of the call after ages of being on hold.

    I happen to like a lot of different music but if I wanted Mozart to sound like bad metal, I'd just pop some bad metal off the queue instead of running the Mozart through a filter...

    Listening to the just released video for Kacey Musgraves' "Rainbow". What a truly beautiful song. I am not surprised in the least that she absolutely stunned the Grammy's audience when she performed this one.

    Daft Punk's Random Access Memories. I get parts of this album stuck in my head every few months.

    Trying to blast a snow dump on outta here sooner than it wants to go. Using a little cranked-up Mission of Burma from their ONoffON album. Should do it!

    Eno's Third Uncle... was probably wished bannable on general principles from at least radio in more than a few places possibly including his country of origin and about 59 other sovereign nations plus 20 or 30 US states. Great track. The oblique version of the Stones' Oh No Not You Again.
