After discussion in a previous thread, I think I realized I have never spoken music much here on the forums... which is funny... if you were to know me in real life, haha.

When I think of the things that have the most profound and lasting influence on my life, powerfully for the better, I think of the people I have known, music, the natural world, meditation and spiritual practice, and books, in that exact order. And for me Music is probably the most religious experience I have had by far in waking life, and the easiest and most accessible thing to share with others. For me, it is absolutely uncontainable, I simply overflow  cheesy

I thought it might be nice for us to share some playlists of some of the music we all liked; I could honestly go on for hundreds and hundreds of songs, and it would still only be the highlights, but I will keep it under 30 at least to start! I can always share dozens more if anyone is interested!

I love music but I'm not as passionate as you Stillwater. I know your type though.... I know it well. A few of my friends are very motivated in life by music and I find it kind of intimidating when it comes to sharing my taste with them... because with that level of love of music it seems to come with a type of snobbery. It's only a perceived snobbery... not actual snobbery. Like a film buff has snobbery. Geekyness I suppose is another way of putting it.

aaaaaaanyway.... for what it's worth this is what I was listening to this morning....

Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes. This is a great live compilation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWIvfE01J0k

Yeah I hear that, haha. I am not normal when it comes to music, that is certain; when I go to a new place, the first friends I seem to make turn out to be street performers and buskers, haha.

I can also understand the intimidation part; I guess at this level of interest, the gathering of information is very active and conscious, whereas most folks seem to absorb what is around them, and what they grow up around, or what their peer group values. But even with that level of exposure, I still feel like most people are exposed to beautiful and meaningful art which can allow them to break barriers with others. I guess to me it sort of takes the place alcohol often does as a social facilitator, lol; I mean beer is ok I guess, but nothing beats listening to what someone grew up around with them, and watching the way it reminds them of their highest ideals. I guess I also thought of Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez in this context, because I remember years ago in university I was meeting with some Polish professors we were having an exhange program with. Someone was playing the Rolling Stones in the background in another room, and one of the Poles began to talk about how that was the start of the real commercialization of music, but it was also a time when tons of folk acts were able to become known as a result; someone procured a guitar, and somehow one of them was playing old Joan Baez songs. It was like one of those fleeting moments that only seem to happen in films, to see someone so profoundly animated by their past like that... like a sharing people are not capable of on normal everyday terms.


I guess it is sort of like being a sports buff or some such; like such a person can strike up a conversation about Arsenal's lineup this year, and how their forwards are unbalanced purposely to concentrate abilty on one side of the field... and the listeners really have no way of interfacing or adding to that discussion. Music can be be like that to some extent, but that part I feel is also superficial and accessory to the discussion. For instance, with Edward Sharpe we both just posted, there is an implicit level of... rhetoric going on, because the bandmates take on these personas of preachy-evangelical types which it is meant to be understood aren't their actual personalities; they sort of see themselves as channeling this energy and passion which is so far removed from our present society that they need to take on the role of characters to express it. This can be confusing to some at first I guess. But then, to me that is also outside the point. Music to me is so far above such sophistries, and so universally understood, that barriers like that are only minor nuances.  Music has no language barrier, or reading list pre-requisite... you can listen to a Farsi or an Italian singer, and understand their emotion and intenion outside of any understanding of lyrics or cultural context, and that to me makes music one of the perfect vehicles of sharing and communicating between people.

That is pretty amazing... I haven't listened to many of John Denver's songs... sort of reminds me of James Taylor:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXmgkvIgc0w

Those are pretty good, and I like the U2 cover too  wink U2 is one of the only stadium fillers that I think is justified in doing so , haha. Dave Matthews is probably another. They both manage mass appeal and greatness at the same time, which isn't easy!

I must have missed this thread.

I'll give a list of some of the songs that have become important to me. I am one of those that, I tend to associate a song with memories, you know first kiss, first whatever, when my dog died, when I met so and so, that kind of stuff.. Some reasons are very obvious to me while others are not.

Perhaps that will explain the range. If you find the lyrics or imagery offensive or aren't congruent with a spiritual path, don't worry because I agree. It's just that I can't erase the importance that they had during certain periods of my life.

No particular order but they are all my favs.

Ok, here is a real treat... this one really gets me wet. Wait till it is late at night (you need to, these are nighttime songs), and your mind is fully clear and receptive, and pop it on with full attention and absorbtion. You will be transported.

It is so rending, and so euphoric at the same time.

It amazes me that humans are able to share what is deepest inside them this completely. This is core-deep stuff.

The original that Sarah is covering here is a masterpiece:
