Roadtrip, you did better than us, we travelled as a small group trekking in the Himalayas a couple of years ago. At the end of trek dinner, the porters and guides sang some local songs to us and we had to respond. The only thing we, a group of 8 could agree on was ' Head, Shoulders , Knees and Toes' (with actions) which I think baffled them.
So here's something less singalong but a particularly beautiful piece of music from the Orkney Islands , Peter Maxwell Davies' Farewell to Stromness played on the piano by Ezra Williams

Goodness, it is dead in here! I take leave for a few weeks and ya'll drop off the face of the earth. An infinite number of possible positive conversations, and you can't find one? *tsk tsk tsk* If you want, I can throw in the video of the one guy's work on the Voynich Manuscript and you can chew on that for a while. I just miss the lively talks we used to have all over the board. In the meantime, I'm going to revive this perfectly good thread because it's still within the month and I like to know what you all listen to.

Not playing from choice but student sitting next to me over lunch has fetched out a guitar and us singing. It might be a pleasant song but for being at a pitch that usually attracts dogs! Falsetto doesn't even being to describe it from a lad in his early 20s who's built like a rugby no8. It is making my ears hurt!!!

50 years young
I don't know if anyone else is a Guardian reader but, 50 years ago tomorrow, Bob Dylan recorded Subterranean Homesick Blues, all 2 minutes 22 seconds in one take, apparently.
The first 'pop video' came 4 months later.
So, one month since my last post, what better song to listen to?

Great or ghastly? This all-girl Japanese pop group has been called an "embarrassment" by Japan's prime minister, but their last 27 singles have all topped the Japanese charts. Apparently their greatest fans are pre-pubescent girls and older men. Catchy tune though.

I can't really make up my mind - think I'd better watch them again! :oops:

Currently listening to Heart of Oak by Sheffield's Richard Hawley - great song. The official video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr2JTS0XQ5Y - which should please Derbyshire's tourist board, having been filmed in that county's Peak District. There's even a glimpse of a border collie (I'm very fond of border collies - we've got one.)

On another thread, Skyeman remarked on the new Single by Skipinnish and very excellent it is. If you haven't done so already you can hear (and see) it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gV9wXTczZB4 . I'd recommend you Also check out Walking on the Waves at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNn2UdI-kvA - great stuff!

Thanks, Davey, Skipinnish gave me a final glimpse of a summer trip to Arran/Islay & Jura. Marvellous scenery and places.
Next month, The Cutting Edge set of Bob Dylan recordings will give us all 16 takes laid down in the studio before the final version of what is claimed to be the first and arguably greatest rock & roll song:
Like a Rolling Stone.
Discuss but for now, just listen and wonder.

The Lads in their Hundreds
I came across this on the net while looking for gigs from this 'English acoustic roots & folk duo', Show of Hands. A beautiful, poignant setting of a Houseman poem about World War I. So good, I've ordered the album.

Currently listening to some very early (1965) Pink Floyd. A bit like early Stones and a far cry from what they became.

Still with the 60s them, just back from a couple of longhaul flights with Emirates where, if you're of my generation, you get the chance to listen to classics from your youth. Amongst albums by Captain Beefheart, Love & John Martyn , how about :
Tupelo Honey from Van Morrison to cheer yourself up.

Just had my entry to this year's Barrathon accepted so only one thing:
The Sound of Vatersay - The Vatersay Boys.
Can't wait to see it again.

50 years ago today, according to my radio this morning, at a gig in Manchester Free Trade Hall, Bob Dylan received the most famous heckle in rock - ' Judas!'. I saw Bob on the same tour, from the circle upstairs at the Glasgow Odeon in Renfield Street. So, to bring back the memories, here's the response
Like A Rolling Stone from the live in 1966 album.
Listen and wonder.
