While being a fan of all kinds of music from various Genres but I have secret passion for something that must be the least Steampunk of any... the love that dare not speak it's name....

I like Disco....

T Connection, Arthur Russell, Larry Levan, Arthur Baker, Dimitri from Paris, The Paradise Garage and all the clubs and tracks in between.


Surely I can't be the only one...

Easy Listening. From the Studio 2 albums of my youth, through to the Lounge craze of the late 90's, I really, relly love the whole shebang!

As always, though, I have to ask the question: Sinatra, Martin, Darin, Bassey, etc., just because they are the cool tunes of yesterday, does that make them easy listening?

My very tongue in cheek way of deciding if it's easy listening is if it would be likely to appear on Sing Something Simple... (yes, I know it's not been on the air for a while...)

I'm a blues musician.
I also like Dean Martin, 40's sing/big band, techno-trance & some grunge rock.

And no, I don't consider Martin easy listening.

And to answer the question - the stuff furthest from steampunk that I like - electric, electronic, rave, trance.

Also people like Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester.

There's others, but they're possibly the furthest away Smile

Post  Mr. Ethan Grammatikidis Sat Oct 04, 2008 6:30 am

I quite like chiptunes too. Smile Well, I can't listen to C64 chiptunes for long. Any others though, no probs. Most of what I listen to regularly right now is instrumental, fairly high energy (as a generic term, rather than genre), and often electronic. The radio streams I most often play are OEM - Original Electronic Music, and that of The Invisble Band. The latter is exceptionally high energy 'space rock', a total favourite of mine when I can handle it. Both, I imagine, are about as far from Victorian as chiptunes are. Smile

I also have a secret love for something that feels to me to be considerably further from Victoriana than electronic music. Neon colours on black. Cool

I always saw easy listening as being more elevator music, ie. Ray Conniff or Mantovani(background music)

Sinatra,Martin and Darin fall into the crooner contingent and Shirley Bassey is the female equivalent vocalist.

I think the term Lounge(from the '90's forward) has come to represent an array of mid 20th century music including easy listening,swing, moog/blippy stuff,crooners, and exotica.

Kind of an umbrella term to describe over half of my LP collection, I think.

To be fair I like an awful lot of different musical styles ranging from medieval music through to modern electronic music.

I like Max Raabe too... Smile

Other bizarre and embarrassing items from my Record collection:-

The "Blue Flame Singer" promo flexi-disc - some kind of awful advertising gimmick where a guy with a slow, thickly accented, Yorkshire voice talks about Blue Flame Gas and why its great... scratch

Brown Ale Flexi Disc - A song about Brown Ale sung to the tune of Blaydon Races.. badly

The DX Collection - A collection of Radio Call signs from AM and FM stations in 1970's America, including a Coca-Cola and a Mastercard advert

Fata Morgana by Dissidenten and Lem Chaheb - Orange vinyl 12" of Arabic infused electro by some Germans Rolling Eyes

As I've said, I'm an Old Folkie (please note the "k" and don't get any wrong ideas), but I also enjoy a wide range of other stuff. Really too much to enumerate here, probably.

(I also disenjoy a wide range of stuff, and am utterly neutral to some, I suppose. But that's another story.)

What I was going to point out is that a great deal of folk music is firmly rooted in the 19th century one way or another. In North America, a lot of it came into being then (some earlier, some later, to be sure). In Britain, most of it was around earlier, but a great deal was collected then (by Harvard professor F.J. Child, for example), which inspired a certain amount of interest in it.

I like alot of stuff...except Rap and country. My two main musical tastes are; hard, classic rock, epitomized with such groups as Led Zeppelin, The Mothers of Invention, Pink Floyd and the Tragically Hip. (etc. etc.) and as well Nowadays I am also getting into modern alternative stuff...thats probably where I lean more towards Steampunk music..although that is a very general term.

Alright!
I love Disco. And this... Commodores - Brick House (Star Wars Brick House Music Video!)

And schmaltzy hippy love songs with pretty flowers and fluffy bunnies which I sometimes sing to my girlfriend when she's busy with housework! Exquisitely embarrassing.
"Dirty linen isn't all that starts to shine, In rubber gloves and faded jeans you still look fine"
Clifford T Ward - Scullery

And how about Dean Friedman - Lydia
This is actually a very serious song from the man who brought us Lucky Stars
with its cringe-worthy lyric "...Slide over here..." (Eeoow!)
However, the version I've linked here is rendered harmless by TwoBobTV's video (www.twobob.tv)

Steady on there! I am certain there are one or more twelve step programmes out there to help you. You just have to make the decision to get better.

And CaptZaphod: Sure Dean Martin is easy listening. You just have to imbibe enough Bourbon.

My itunes has just finished belting out "Knights of the Round Table", currently on the Scary Bitches' "Lesbian Vampires From Outer Space" and looks like it's lining up "Sword of Damocles" next.

Yep, Monty Python, pastiche schlock rock, the Rock Horrow Picture show album, it's all there, nestling away behind the Rammstein and the Cruxshadows.

And a couple of Cameron Macintoch/Llyod-Webber muscial soundtracks too. Ooh, Blink 182's just come on.

It doesn't pay to be a musical snob. If you like something, listen to it- art, really good art, transcends boundries.

At the moment it appears I am on a Hi-Fi "kick" as they say. I've even managed to modify my stereophonic phonograph cartridge to cancel out vertical needle movement and deliver only the purest monophonic lateral motion to my amplifier. Glorious! Less recently I've followed Andean folk music, Hip-Hop, Jellyfish, Techno, Andy Williams, Japanese 8-bit bands, Bebop, Baroque organ music, Blind Guardian, Robert Goulet, John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Erik Satie, Frank Zappa, and Johnny Cash.

But not "Country". Never Country.

Most record stores categorize anything not of the mainstream as "Easy Listening" even though it may not be. Most of the Crooners, Swing, 50's rock and other such "old people's music" gets thrown in as well due to some strange concept that older=quieter. I'd have dared anyone to tell Frank Sinatra to his face that he was "easy listening".

Now Yanni, on the other hand...
