    The Music Thread.

    Well it's late and I can't sleep. I have been thinking about this for a while now, we need a music thread akin to Keith's movie thread. We have The song title game and there used to be a What are you listening to right now thread, but we need an ongoing music appreciation thread. There should be no smacking or making fun of someone's musical tastes, just honest adult conversation regarding music.

    For as much emotion as can be packed into a 2 hour long movie, skilled songwriters and musicians can put just as much into a 3 minute long song. In my opinion music is the greatest art-form there is for this reason. If you have lived at all, then there are at least a handful of songs that will bring you back to another time and place. I don't know of anything else in the world that can do that.

    To this day if I hear Holes in the Floor of Heaven I cry like a baby because that is what they played at my Moms funeral. Daddy's hands does the same thing to me because that is what was played at my Grandpa's funeral. These songs don't necisarily make me sad, but they bring every memory, good or bad, about those two people flooding back into my conscience whenever I hear them. I watched numerous movies, and looked at many pictures with both those people but it is only music or conversation that makes me that emotional about them.

    I can't hear Ridin Dirty without falling more in love with my wife. Let me explain, my wife for some unknown reason loves that song. I think it is the almost comical stereotypeness(I know that isn't a word) of the song that she loves. Every time she hears that song she sings along with it at perfect tempo, and never misses a single word. I just watch and laugh as this small town white librarian girl sings along to gangster rap, and it just makes me fall more and more in love with her every time.

    I was heavily into Johnny Cash when my son was born, still am really, but at that time it was almost an obsession. Well as I was driving home one day after picking him up from day-care, Get Rhythm came on and my son started freaking out in his car seat. He was literally getting rhythm for the first time to the beat of Get Rhythm. I will never hear that song and be sad, it is impossible.

    I bought Iron Man the movie at Wal-Mart and it came with a free "bonus" disc, on the disc was an episode of an upcoming cartoon series. Well my daughter who is two and a half loves that cartoon(I think you two would get along great Razor) and because of that I decided I would see if she liked Iron Man the song. To make a long story short, my daughter in the gruffest lowest voice possible for a two year old girl to make, walks around my house constantly saying "I am Iron Man" For the rest of my life now, if that song for some reason comes on in public I am going to start giggling and people are going to think I am insane.

    My point in all of this is that I don't think any other art-form touches us on an emotional level the way music does. When I hear CCR I am instantly on a school bus traveling back from a wrestling tournament, I can vividly remember the sights and sounds of those times because of the music. When I hear the Violent Femmes I can remember making out with my first serious girlfriend in the back of my Ford Escort, and I remember the heartbreak she left me with, and I am thankful for both memories.

    I love music, I hope we can keep a serious music appreciation thread going.

    I am sorry for my long ramblings, but like I said I can't sleep. My mind works overtime sometimes and I need a place to spew it's contents, I think I found it. Thanks

    Awesome pregame song - Let It Rock - Kevin Rudolf

    "because when I, arrive, I, I bring the fire, make you come alive, I can take you higher, What this is, forgot, now I must remind ya, let it rock let it rock"

    Sweet post a link when it is done.

    Pre game music for me will always start and stop with AC/DC, that is all our coach would allow in the locker room in HS.

    Man, your coach was cool. My high school coach relegated all of our music in the locker room to headphones, and Holtz always blared the team we were playing that week's fight song.

    I remember when we had to go play Tennessee, it was after a bye, so we heard Rocky Top for 13 days straight. In the locker room, in the weight room, in the trainers room.

    ...but it worked. We weren't phased by the stadium noise. We WERE however phased by UT whipping the piss out of us.

    Hooray, beer!

    You played for the Irish? Cool man. I don't get coaches who won't let the guys listen to some rock before a game. I also don't get listening to rap before a game, generational gap I guess. I am 32 so Rap was just getting popular when I was growing up. Now it is everywhere.

    I'm 27, and it might just be where you grew up, maybe?

    I went to Odessa High School, and Raprock was the staple for that area when it came to getting down. i.e. Linkin Park, Kid Rock (Cowboy was another song on the old walkman that used to pump me up) etc. etc.

    My Dad is where I draw my ecclesiastic tastes from. I learned to appreciate everything from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young to Neil Diamond to Charlie Pride (you dont have to call me darlin....darlin!)

    Hooray, beer!

    If I was a coach i would play slayer's "reign in blood" and metallica's "ride the lightning" on full blast before a game.



    If those 2 albums can't pump you up and make you want to kill something, nothing will.

    I have alot of friends that listen to slayer, and while I dont particularly enjoy their stuff, I can say that it will definitely get your blood boiling.

    Hooray, beer!
