    "Greensleeves".


    It is a summer's evening and the musicians are gathered on the commons by a bonfire. They are playing "Greensleeves". They're dressed in medieval costumes - stocking type pants that bag in the knees, and tunic tops that badly need a good washing.


    My heart is breaking.


    I got the above vision when I was 20 years old. When I met my husband to be for the first time, I was 24 and "Greensleeves" was playing on the radio.

    Andalusian guitar music.


    I still prefer live music and vinyl too...

    Dame Vera Lynn


    Any of the songs by Dame Vera Lynn, who sang songs prior and during WWII and was very popular with the troops and civilians alike.


    She appeared first on the radio in 1935 and her popularity took off from there.


    She was given honors by the Queen and was born in 1917.


    She sings a song "The White Cliffs of Dover" (which is my Avatar) that sends me into a trance. :)

    Is she the one on the phonograph record? I have a CD with WWII songs and that is one of them. It's a very moving song.

    I love Vera Lynn, Hydrolad. I have a CD that has old British radio broadcasts from the war years.

    Crackles and Pop's

    I don't know, it probably is, but I don't have one to recall the LP cover, and speaking of Vinyl, some people, myself included, believe that the crackles and pops of Vinyl, lend a certain atmosphere to the music (and especially old speeches). ;)

    Can't say that I'm a fan of the cracks and pops, but I do love vinyl. Personally I think it's the warmer, phat-er (Is that even a word?) tone that makes it preferable. CDs just sound so... cold. They're not as alive and human feeling as vinyl.

    It's not the fault of the CD. When I copy old LP's or 78's to digital they sound exactly the same as the original vinyl. Many younger sound engineers seem to like the cold, "tinny" sound. Maybe because they grew up listening to walkmans, ipods, or something similar?

    Harp music, and Celine Dion's "It' All Coming Back to Me Now."

    The new Robbie Williams from his swing cd "Dream a little dream of me". Think that's the right title.


    I'll have to look up the date but I can see myself playing it on a old style record player with a friend. The room's fairly small and cluttered, we dance along to it. I like to think I'll find a boyfriend to dance with.


    It's a happy memory. :D

    That was a big hit in the 60's. Mama Cass Elliott, I think.

    Gift of a Thistle from Braveheart. I've never seen the film, but I heard this song a while ago and I felt very nostalgic.

    I was in New Orleans and some street performers were playing blue grassy type music and bit just seemed so much like I Was home. It felt so right. I had a life in new Orleans once.

    Are you familiar with zydeco, Obie? That style originated in Louisiana, and could be what you heard. "Dream a Little Dream of Me" was already an old song when Mama Cass recorded it. It was actually a big-band era song. I love it, by the way. I listen to swing every day, and new artists are doing an awesome job reinterpreting it.

    Scandinavian joik singing, Irish folk music, Chinese & Mongolian flute music and Ella Fitzgerald! and classical music, too, I guess. Sounds like a weird mix, but I think they all tie in with some PLs or another along the line.

    I find people with varied musical tastes to be the most interesting. I'm sure Pandora Radio thinks I'm schizophrenic. With the wealth of music from other times and cultures available at the touch of a finger, it's a shame not to enjoy it. I actually think we are very lucky to be alive in this time, when knowledge is so accessible. It's an age of miracles, in the technological sense, as well as the spiritual. I like your list, Lynette, and can see how it reflects your PLs.

    :D Thanks, Briar Rose,


    Most people's response to asking me what music I listen to is 'Huhhh??? What??? What's that??'


    I forgot to add Manx music to that list too traditional Manx music, though it is hard to come by... and I love learning old Sea-songs, though for some reason they always bring tears to my eyes.

    "Que cera cera" has definitely survived my memory but that's the only specific one so far.


    Native American music = definitely, always. Usually Plains through Southwest. Mainly flute or chanting. It just feels like home to me.
