What music are you listening to?
A nice bit of Irish folk:
Elephant Revival Radio on Pandora... Currently the Wailin' Jennys:
The first song is actually Scottish, not Irish. Ooops.
Nice video from birds perspective and with calming music
Leonard Cohen.The Future.
I don't listen to music anymore (apart from the odd Yo Gabba Gabba or Play School kiddies cd).
I used to love hard rock / heavy metal but find it far too big a distraction to the path I have decided to follow......
Bjork's Human Behaviour
Leonard Cohen.The Future.
Counting Crows "Round Here"
FKA Twigs at Glastonbury. "In time" beginning at 6:20 here:
I'm on an Earl Klugh kick right now. I love him with Bob James too!
@Bunks ....try the easy, breezy Jazz below
Some old stuff:
I'm gonna be the odd man out with my rap submission, lol.
On the total opposite end of things, you might also take this:
New Radiohead album.
EXISTENCE IS SUFFERING!!!!!
George nails it again! Probably my favourite dharma song......
Super-cheesy 70's soft rock. What can I say, I find it relaxing. I used to listen to heavy metal and alternative music (Tool and Nirvana, anyone?) I found that while the music was artistically advanced, and had a strong effect on my emotions, it was in a negative direction and it made me tense. So I gradually switched to more relaxing types of music, like soft rock, trip hop, and deep house.
Love both bands, but Nirvana are my fave of all time.
If you don't know the Transatlantic Sessions I would recommend you look them up on YouTube...
Whisky in the Jar
This guy is amazing:
Cannot get enough of this song...
Bluejeans and moonbeams
On Sunday mornings (coming up in a few hours ), I listen to Beatle Brunch, a restrospective program about the Beatles' concerts, their lives, historical interviews with them, etc.
When I'm in my car, I listen most to my favorite: African Guitar Summit. I just saw this group live in California in a small jazz club--heaven! Turns out they live in Canada.
Yes, fantastic stuff, we get them on TV here too.
First some first rate instrumental Klezmer pieces from a live performance by Budowitz. Followed by Ragas 1-5 from the Radiant album by N. Rajam. If you like the carnactic tradition of Indian music this will send you.
The new Mashrou' Leila album, اين الليل (Ibn El Leil), for like the thousandth time. I was just playing "3 Minutes" but it's changed. Spoiler alert: "3 Minutes" is not 3 minutes long.
I almost never listen to music. It distracts me from working on "mindfulness".
@FoibleFull have you never heard of sound meditation? :P
Ofra Haza - Galbi
Jimmy "Purple Haze" Hendrix
Yes I have.
My local teacher (one of the Dalai Lama's senior monks and a Geshe) says NOT to distract ourselves in that way. That it undermines our focus and meditation.
What about making music? Do you never chant?
That's the main reason I listen to music. Gawd, I need a break sometimes.
Something from this year's Glastonbury Festival:
And something from a previous Glastonbury:
Finally got my piano moved out here from Colorado. But I'm spending more time on the acoustic 6-string. Enjoying a new Set of Ernie Ball Stainless 11s.
Cool! I am learning a semi-acoustic bass guitar, it's a big beast!
More from this years Glastonbury:
Metric, the album "fantasies"
