Townes Van Zandt, but he is dead now…
Prompts to nmh though, a band you have sit with for awhile before you can even grow accustomed to them.October 30, 2011 at 9:47 PM #731667
I’ve got this theory that there is no bad music – just music that you haven’t been in the right situation or place in your life to understand yet.
I could name two dozen bands who I’ve had a religious experience with at the right point in time, ranging from Neil Young (“Natural Beauty”), Ben Folds Five (many songs), Head East (“Never Been Any Reason”), Grand Funk (“Gimme Shelter”), Nirvana (many), Kid Rock. The latest was the Nora Jones song “Don’t know why”…I had just installed new speakers and at about 1 AM a few weeks ago in our darkened music room, listened to that song. It brought me to tears, much to my surprise.
Music has an absolutely astounding power to stir emotion in me.October 30, 2011 at 10:00 PM #731668Allan from FallbrookParticipant
Svelte: If you enjoy Norah Jones, give Rachel Yamagata a listen. Similar genre/style and an absolutely amazing voice.October 31, 2011 at 9:29 PM #731806
That Norah Jones album had been in my collection a long time, but I had never seriously listened to it until that night.
I am now putting Rachel Yamagata on my Amazon Wish List and will get some next time I do my monthly music purchase…thank you.October 31, 2011 at 10:00 PM #731814
PS – just watched the “Don’t Know Why” video. Not impressed.
I think that song has to be heard with NO visual input. In a dark, quiet room like I had that night. That is where it packs it’s punch.December 9, 2011 at 8:22 AM #734358urbanrealtorParticipant
(old) Bad Religion
(very old) Metallica
(even older) Misfits
Flogging Molly (oddly)
Sorry if the list is a bit predictable.
