Though the NFBB has greatly diminished in popularity in recent years, no iteration of this forum would be complete without some version of the Greatest Bulletin Board Thread OF ALL TIME! Of course, I'm talking about the "What are you listening to now?" thread which (even though I only visit a handful of times a year) I am proud to kick off today here at the good ol' new Nearly Famous Bulletin Board...

Right now I'm listening to...

Free Time by The Aggrolites from the album: Reggae Hit L.A.

So, what are YOU listening to right now?

The OLD NFBB has dimished over the years. This NEW NFBB should soon attain all of the board's former glory.

Please cut-and-paste your favorite posts from the old board and repost them here to get the forum jump-started.

A Whiter Shade of Pale (cover) by Annie Lennox.

At work, it can vary as far as my source. I may pull up Youtube and grab a "Best of" and listen to an album.

Or Pandora

Or Aol Radio

Hello Sandy Allen by Split Enz from the album Time & Tide

I'm listening to this song in a hopefully not too vain attempt to eradicate it from my brain where it has been lodged for the past couple weeks for some unknown reason.
Not that it's a bad song, au contraire, it's actually quite awesome. But it popped into my mind a while back and now I can't get it out of my head! [image]

I've been listening to a lot of Kendrick Lamar. I'm so cool that I have the same favourite album of 2015 as President Obama!

So I listened to it again.

Reminds me of The Big Chill.

For some reason, the Temptations' "Just My Imagination" keeps playing in my head.

Ed listened to a wide variety of music, everything from Nine Inch Nails to Vivaldi.  Periodically, when he'd be playing something on his computer, or a certain song came on the radio, he'd yell out, "Play this at my funeral!"  We figured he had made a list of songs he wanted played, but no.  We had to go over his music on the computer & try to remember what he liked the best -- & separate that out from all the stuff he'd downloaded to make discs for other people.

He liked the Beatles, of course, having been born in 1948, & gone through the whole British Invasion thing.  He also liked "California Dreaming" & "If You're Going to San Francisco" because he actually did run away to California (from Phoenix).  The line about "If I didn't tell her, I could leave today" he always associated with his mom.  He also liked "Fields of Gold" by Sting, the Alan Parsons Project, the Pointer Sisters, Tom Petty, Traveling Wilburys, Bee Gees, Country Joe, Donovan, Nirvana, No Doubt, Nickleback, Yes, Animals, Don Mclean, "Four Seasons" by Vivaldi, "Fur Elise" by Beethoven, "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" by Mozart, "Brandenburg Concertos" by Bach, John Lee Hooker, Jefferson Airplane, Doors, Arlo Guthrie, "Teenage Dirtbag," Traffic, Blind Faith, Yardbirds.  He used to tease me that Led Zeppelin was "teenybopper" music because the older "freaks" were more into "pure" blues.    

When I met Ed in 1975, his hair was longer than mine & he was managing local rock bands.  One of those bands, Copenhaver, had a teen keyboard genius named Brad Buxer, who actually became a professional musician.  He played with Stevie Wonder & Michael Jackson.

Ed also made a mix disc of special music that he used to play for prisoners in the holding cell at either Superior or Youngtown (until the boss made him stop).  Those were songs like "Cocaine," "I Fought the Law," "The Authority Song" by John Cougar Mellencamp, "Coming Into Los Angeles" by Arlo Guthrie, "Jail House Rock," "Panama Red," etc.  He said that sometimes the prisoners would be kind of halfway listening to the music for quite awhile before they noticed the theme.  He always had a somewhat bizarre sense of humor.

& now I have Amy Winehouse's "Love Is A Losing Game" going through my head.

What a hot mess she was.  Amy had a phenomenal voice, & wrote some pretty cool songs, too.   I watched the "Amy" documentary the other night & when Amy's idol, Tony Bennett, announced that she had won a Grammy, Amy actually complained to her friend, "It's so boring without any drugs."  Her friend said she felt really sad for her.  She just always wanted to be drunk or high.  What a waste.

Ha!  I like that!  It's got a Libertarian feel to it.  Nice!
