    I like that Dean Martin reference

    Yeah, I could definitely do some serious planning to his stuff. I'd have to include John Coltrane, Ben Folds Five, and Cake. The 90's alternative rock, acoustic rock, jazz, and 60's pop rock could really do the job for me.

    I tend not to listen to music at work, but when I do plug a cd into the computer, it tends to be Robert Cray, the Barenaked Ladies or Jimmy Buffett.

    Yes, Ben Folds Five is one of my favourites. I also like to listen to Third Eye Blind, Billy Bragg & Wilco, the Willard Grant Conspiracy, the Cure, Van Morrison, the Be Good Tanya's, Neil Young and John Coltrane. The more ecletic, the better!

    Trance Planning

    For you Coltraine listeners:
    A friend lent me a CD of remixes of a couple of Carlos Santana LPs -- Illuminations and A Love Supreme. The somewhat trance like compositions went rather well with the tedious and repititive tasks of the day. I've also tuned into the ambient channel on netradio.com for similar atmospheres.

    If I want something more stimulating than ambient I often log on to WXPN Philladelphia (home of World Cafe) or WNCW Spindale, NC for some alt country/world beat/rock & soul mixes.

    Caffeine for the ears...

    ...need some perking up this afternoon. Gonna pop in some Kylie Mingue and then some Pink. Maybe even throw in Amber's Greatest Remixes CD to get that Euro-trash discoteque feel goin' on...

    I wish it was Pink

    One of my co-worker's idea of music to plan by is Andrea Bocelli and Charlotte Church. If only her headphones worked properly. The sound is leaking out of her cubicle. A little culture and faulty equipment are dangerous things.

    My wife is the one who really loves slipknot. she forced me to their concert

    my tastes really range from oldies, 70s, 80s, electronica, techno, metal, to stuff that can't be classified like radiohead.


    i really do not like rap-metal. some rap is ok, the really out there artists like outkast, busta rhymes, dmx, ja rule. all the other suck.

    one thing that my wife and I both agree... country sux

    I am refusing to grow old enough to enjoy C&W. I considered it TEOTWAWKI when the High School kids started going Country. ACK.... There's satan in that music, I just know it. I'll de-code it yet, I just haven't found the key. I'm working on "She thanks mah tractor's sexy" now. I'll find it I tell you....

    Music to Plan By

    My main job these days is working the morning sign-on shift at KBRW public radio in Barrow, Alaska.
    A while back, there was a move to "modernize" our music and hundreds of record albums were going to be tossed in the dumpster. Thank goodness one of our volunteer DJ's, who works at the city, found space for the orphan albums in a city facility.
    Several of us went over there the other day and retrieved over 100 of the classic albums. Now in the morning, I am playing some classic Rare Earth---with a jazz-type sound, also Buffalo Springfield, early Santana and much more.
    Rock on!

    Music to Plan By

    Wow---love the creative, diverse and just plain fantastic response on this subject. Who ever said that planners just know zoning and data and all that stuff?
    Got me thinking, when I see Doors, and Joplin and Jefferson Airplane.
    Is there any way we can better incorporate music, and music history into our communities. I really like the music of the 1960s, but whatever music, we know that it can really inspire people.
    sure, you can go into a store and hear some snippits. Or stay at home and hear what you want.
    But ways to bring various options of music, and the context of that music, into our communities ----maybe various music kiosks, or mini-interactive-museums of various types of music.
    Some way to get music veterans like keyboarder Goldy McJohn of Steppenwolf, or others in their 50s and 60s around the country, to learn more about their history, and influences, etc.
    It is Sunday night and I am just musing. Feel good about all of this, but just trying to forge some links, or ideas to what we do as planners.
    Rock on!!

    Music

    NH Planner: You rule!

    My taste is even more bizarre, considering that I am about as mild mannered as they come (see: no tattoos):

    In my car now:

    Immortal-Sons of Northern Darkness
    Falkenbach
    Virgin Black
    Candlemass
    Satyricon
    Fields of the Nephilim
    Current 93
    Death In June
    My Dying Bride
    Tool (sometimes)
    and
    Thought Industry

    My co-workers think I am really wierd, but there is something about doomy metal music that appeals to me. And, given the sorry state of many American inner cities, maybe doom and gloom is appropriate for a planner (Is there an emoticon with fangs, Dan?)

    I have 520 CDs, now, so I am a bit obsessive.

    There must be something about unassuming, non-tattooed planners...

    I've been listening to a lot of my fiance's stuff recently (long car trips to Maine...she controls the cd player)...I need to break out some Misfits before I go mad!

    Can't beat Dylan and the Clancy Brothers. Wouldn't it be a kick if they did a concert together.
    Cheers from the far north in Alaska to all the musical planners who have been responding on this subject.

    New tunes on the player here: just in from an artist I heard once on community radio and now I cannot stop listening to this stuff: Ismael Lo's Jammu Africa

    His duet with Marianne Faithfull was the hook here's the lyrics
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FR CD5 Sankara/Mercury 3133 promo
    r. 17 September 1996

    Without Blame
    (Étienne Roda Gil, Roger Waters, Ismaël Lo)

    Toutes les femmes sont des reines ...
    But some are more eager than others.
    Some shatter a man's dream
    By breaking away from their lover.

    Cette chanson pour cette reine
    Qui dit à son roi, « Maintenant ...
    I am gone, gone with the wind. »

    The love that you would not defend with your life
    You cannot befriend always tears in your eyes.
    I am gone, gone with the wind,
    I am gone in search of a new king.

    Toutes les femmes sont des reines,
    Sur terre, sur mer, neige ou désert.
    Derrière le voile des formes pleines
    Il y a le mystère des sirènes.

    Burn the towns,
    Burn the backstreet bars,
    Burn your boardwalk basement trade.

    Feel the flame,
    Feel the curve of the sword,
    Your living flesh reeks of compromise, babe.

    And in the face of barbarian hordes
    An honest defeat is your only reward.

    The love that you would not defend with your life
    You cannot befriend always tears in your eyes.
    Ma ni dem, gone with the wind,
    Ma ni dem in search of a new king.

    « All women are queens,
    Tell this to the woman who loves you.
    You may not live up to her dreams,
    Which even a king cannot always do. »

    Voilà ce qu'a dit une reine
    A un roi bon vaincu sans haine.
    Elle est partie comme s'en va la mer
    Quand la lune vous a.

    The love that you would not defend with your life
    You cannot befriend always tears in your eyes.
    I am gone, gone with the wind,
    I am gone in search of a new king.
    I am gone.

    I am gone.
