Ultimate Santana.

 

It's hard to pick from the best of his best, but Smooth makes me want to dance. All Amazon Prime baby.

 

I'm a Black Magic Woman and I'm trying to make a devil out of you.

 

I watched Santana live concert in Istanbul. :) Great performance. Great man. Smooth and Corazon Espinado are my favorites.

Ohio by CSN&Y. I just ask Alexa to "play some music" and she always knows what I like. This is the best toy I have bought myself this year. No need to pay 130.00 for the big Echo unless you need it to be portable. Just plug in some computer speakers that have a 3.5mm plug. The music only stops when you say "Alexa Stop." The weather in Istanbul is 37F mostly cloudy with a low of 37F. My prince that is about near 0 in Celsius.

 

Now she is playing Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb as I have become. 

 

 
Hello,
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?
 
Come on now
I hear you're feeling down
Well, I can ease your pain
And get you on your feet again
 
Relax
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?
 
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
 
I have become comfortably numb
 
O.K.
Just a little pin prick
There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick
 
Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on, it's time to go.
 
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb.

Great band and great song. 

 

Pink Floyd lovers are talking about Dark Side of the Moon mostly. But i love The Wall album.

A lot of their albums around that era (Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You were Here, The Wall, Animals) were very good. :)

I still listen to Casey Kasem's American Top 40 from the 70's and 80's  while I play Stratego.  It's great music.  Plus his research on all the old artists is informative and entertaining.  The great music can distract you from concentrating on the games though.

I was listening to My Sharona.  I still think the guitar solo in that song is a masterpiece.

I also watched some of the Offspring concert from 1999.

https://www.youtube....h?v=W8iZC6LETZo

 

Some Chuck Berry.  Awesome performance.

Mr. Lonnie Mack.  The drummer is having too much fun.

One of my favorite music videos.

Nature. Wind rustling through the trees, bird chirping interrupted by the occasional plane taking off from Orlando International.

A favorite from April Wine.... https://www.youtube....h?v=YlcY_enzwmI

 

No truer lyrics have ever been written for a song.  Brilliant.  https://www.youtube....h?v=AkawT3wjAb4

 

Check out this youtube channel.  They made lots of long rock music playlists by genre. Great background music when surfing the web or playing Stratego.   https://www.youtube....hQ_T5oog/videos

Put on some headphones, turn out the lights, close your eyes and listen to this song.  Nice.

That's a very interesting band. For one thing I'd have thought I'd have heard of them but never have. So that was neat. I don't really know why but I spent some time learning about them this evening. There was a definitely a lot of raw power in their act, as you said. I think they were somewhat like intense punk rockers that came later like the Ramones, even though the Detroit background of MC5 was not exactly New York City. In fact, after re-forming as a band around 2005 (original breakup was 1972), they featured the former lead vocalist from an East coast band I've always enjoyed called The Dictators, a band in the same New York footsteps as the Ramones. (See Dictators Bloodbrothers album for their best stuff. Here's their 1978 hit off that record called "Slow Death": https://youtu.be/BuY6D1LYSoM)

The philosophy of MC5 was best exemplified by their biggest song called "Kick Out Jams" that they also performed at the same Detroit concert as your link above in July of 1970. The lead guitarist/singer Wayne Kramer explained in a later interview that I watched that they would always yell at other bands to kick out the jams or get off stage, so that attitude became their number one hit.

MC5 was fast and furious and they played loose with any kind of self-censorship, which got them in trouble a lot at the time. In the videos you showed they spit out a couple of choice words, I noticed. Kramer ended up going to jail for a period later, I read. He was a failure as a drug pusher, he once said. Nowadays, he takes his act to jails and prisons and seems a truly reformed man.

Returning to that Ramblin' Rose song of your link just a bit, Kramer has the weirdest voice you will ever hear, though still compelling, I think, doesn't he? And did you notice that kind of sideways Michael Jackson moonwalk thing he did about the 55 second mark? It was very cool. He had something like 4 inch heels doing it--maybe typical for the time but...wow...that was pretty slick to watch. Check it out. He does it at the end of Ramblin' Rose a second time.

Thanks for introducing these guys to me.:)

I never heard of them growing up either.  Everybody in Detroit probably knew of them.  Their whole band story is very interesting.   I saw some of their videos on youtube about 5 years ago.  I thought their hard rock/blues/punkish style was entertaining.  I guess they were a little unlucky not to become super famous.  They certainly had the talent.  And Kramer is a showman for sure.
