    So, reading the latest entires on the random-thoughts thread, I decided we needed a thread for everyone to post what they are listening to right now. So:

    What are ya listening to? What kind of music is it? And, if you feel so inclined, what are you listening to it on?

    My answer: Currently on my Mac, Armin van Buuren, "Shivers". Electronica / trance.

    I'm listening to "Everybody Here Wants You" by Jeff Buckley's "Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk" on my mp3 player and trying to decide what type of dance would be best suited to it... Sexy, sexy, sexy song...

    I'm in school right now, and we're watching the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so I guess that's what I'm listening to :)

    Hurray! Another Sinatra fan!
    I am listening to NPR Jazz in the Afternoons on the radio. The oldies station I sometimes listen to started with All Christmas music on Monday. Way too early for that so I am avoiding it.

    I am similarly sick woman. I listen mostly to ballroom music. Actually I developed this habit after my dance teacher told me to listen to dance music in the car and try to find the beat, so that I get better at understanding music. It took longer than I thought it would, but by now I can actually hear the beat when I am listening to music, and now I am so used to listening to ballroom music in the car, that I rarely listen to anything else. Before that I used to listen to things like NPR.

    I stopped listening to current trends music about 3 years ago when our local radio station started going to canned music, and would periodically have dead air space with no one noticing, or two tapes going at once, or an announcer stating the time incorrectly(taped obviously).

    So I tend to listen now to a local NPR affiliate that plays a diverse mix of music heavy on blues and jazz but also including latino, world beat, americana, reggae, folk, etc. etc.

    When I want to concentrate on something I listen to a classical music station.

    Otherwise, I am listening to my dance music CD's (very few of which were produced as "Dance Music") heavy on the 30's Swing because I am in a Lindy phase right now and surfing eMusic looking for more dancable music.

    Right at this minute? "Hooked on Classics", which is an updated version of famous pieces of classical music performed to a disco beat by a symphony orchestra (I think it's the LSO, but can't be sure as, somewhere in the mists of time, the sleeve notes have got lost... :roll: )

    I enjoy Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and they put on a really entertaining show. A Rat Pack Christmas is a great CD too. :)

    At the moment, I'm listening to The Tragically Hip - "Fiddler's Green"

    The Tragically Hip are a Canadian rock band that have been around since the early 80's and still going strong. They can be a bit of an acquired taste, however I'd suggest taking a listen to "Bobcaygeon", "Wheat Kings", "It's a Good Life if you Don't Weaken", "Ahead By a Century" and "Courage".


    At the moment, I'm listening to "Lough Erin Shore" by The Corrs (a lovely Viennese Waltz, actually)
