    Great Lyrics

    Great Lyrics in that song. Even warmed me up in Arctic Alaska, where we are struggling to get to 30 above zero.
    More, more.

    Hmmmm, quiet the mix posted here. Funny thing is, there must be something about planners, because we all seem to enjoy the same music, do the same things, same interests. I wonder if it's the same for other professions. Actually, I really don't care.

    I must say that the Phish version of Gin and Juice is just hilarious. Nothing like Gangsta Rap done by folk music style. "So much drama in the LBC...." with a southern twang?!?!? Granpa Jones must be rolling in his grave. Has anyone heard the Comedy White Guy version? Kind of a Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy thing...........I wet my pants the first time I heard it.......

    Anyway, my officed is filled with Buffett, Tosh (Legalize It sort of gest loud), Marley, Drop Kick Murphy's, Tiger Army, Buck-o-Nine, Pharcyde, Miles Davis, MethodMan, Beasties (in sounds from the underground), The Cramps, Social D, Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, Jurassic 5..................

    Still, the Phish Gin and Juice is still tops right now. I had to edit this post because this track just dropped in on my player and I had this vision of a scene in Deliverance but add gold chains, some Wu-Wear and Mercedes/RangeRover/Viper/HummVee/Porsche.......in the middle of some 'holler' in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    Ahhhh, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind.

    Back in the 70's a lot of downtowns used to be wired for sound. Not that I remember - I just learned that the system is still in existence in our downtown. They're talking about reviving it, especially around Christmas. I wonder what people would think if planners were allowed to pick the music.

    Back from A Wonderful Retro in Nashville

    Hello and glad this board is back up. Chris and I had a very wonderful time after flying about 4,000 miles from Barrow Alaska to Nashville, Tenn. Had a great weekend of memories and great music with the current and past band members of Steppenwolf and about 400 fans from all over the world.
    I tell you there were times during the Saturday afternoon outdoor concert in bright sun in 90 degree weather that I knew I was back in the year 1969, and involved in my community and in various ways for peace and basic human rights.
    Music can, and often is, a powerful force in our lives, not just when we are 20 and super-idealistic, but into our 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond. Stay wild!!

    "My City Was Gone"--Chryssie Hynde's reflection about the growth and change of Sharon Center, Ohio and Akron

    WENT BACK TO OHIO
    BUT MY CITY WAS GONE
    THERE WAS NO TRAIN STATION
    THERE WAS NO DOWNTOWN
    SOUTH HOWARD HAD DISAPPEARED
    ALL MY FAVORITE PLACES
    MY CITY HAD BEEN PULLED DOWN
    REDUCED TO PARKING SPACES
    A, O, WAY TO GO OHIO

    WELL I WENT BACK TO OHIO
    BUT MY FAMILY WAS GONE
    I STOOD ON THE BACK PORCH
    THERE WAS NOBODY HOME
    I WAS STUNNED AND AMAZED
    MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
    SLOWLY SWIRLED PAST
    LIKE THE WIND THROUGH THE TREES
    A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO

    I WENT BACK TO OHIO
    BUT MY PRETTY COUNTRYSIDE
    HAD BEEN PAVED DOWN THE MIDDLE
    BY A GOVERNMENT THAT HAD NO PRIDE
    THE FARMS OF OHIO
    HAD BEEN REPLACED BY SHOPPING MALLS
    AND MUZAK FILLED THE AIR
    FROM SENECA TO CUYAHOGA FALLS
    SAID, A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO

    Chryssie Hynde and the Pretenders ---always one of my favorite groups in spite of frequent personnel changes. And "My City Was Gone" how true it is today. Thanks a lot!

    Dead Can Dance are great!

    Have you ever heard Black Tape for a Blue Girl? A little less world music-y, but they feature a great operatic male vocalist and some fantastic female vocalists.

    I've heard of Anonymous 4 but never heard them.

    If you want something really weird and "out of this world" (maybe a little dark), I also recommend the Norwegian duo Raison D'Etre. Great use of Gregorian chants over a spooky synthetic instrumental base. Great stuff-probably hard ot find outside a big city (or the Internet)

    Another planning related song, by Pet Shop Boys

    "Suburbia"

    Lost in the high street, where the dogs run
    Roaming suburban boys
    Mother's got a hairdo to be done
    She says they're too old for toys
    Stood by the bus stop with a felt pen
    In this suburban hell
    And in the distance a police car
    To break the suburban spell

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Break the window by the town hall
    Listen, the siren screams
    There in the distance, like a roll call
    Of all the suburban dreams

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around

    It's on the front page of the papers
    This is their hour of need
    Where's a policeman when you need one
    To blame the colour TV?

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia

    Take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia

    cars

    Gary Neuman - Cars

    Here in my car, I feel safest of all,
    I can lock all the doors, it's the only way to live,
    in cars.............

    Here in my car, I can only receive,
    I can listen you, in case we stay for 4 days in cars.....

    Here in my car, I am starting to think,
    about leaving tonight, although nothing seems right.
    I wonder if birds know it's Tuesday?

    Cars and Music and Planning

    Think I lost my previous reply.
    So to repeat----Lots of music about cars
    Little Duce Coupe, etc.
    and motorcycles Born to Be Wild,
    Black Leather Trousers and Motorcycle Boots
    (see if anyone on this board is old enough to remember that one.
    But what about trusty mountain bikes ---healthiest of the bunch.
    We need a good mountain biking song and planners help to
    work in more trails.
    On (or off) the road again....

    I just borrowed two CD's from a friend - both are remakes of famous rock songs remade as swingin' "lounge music".

    Its really cool. Peggy Lee singing the Beatles hit "A Day in the Life" is outstanding.

    latest............

    I've borrowed this CD (The Gabby Pahinui Hawaiian Band, Vol 1) from a co-worker. It's traditional hawaiian music; guitars, slides guitars, slackkey etc..............

    really fun stuff, goes well with my lava lamp and hula girl shower curtain hanging in my office. It also helps take me away from the complaint callers, pyscho herione freaks that wander into City Hall and the drudgery of paper pushing. I think about surfing in Mexico..................

    Also, the latest Talib Kwali or Jurassic 5 when i'm in that kind of mood.

    Today its a sweet Radiohead 10-disc set of b-sides, unreleased tracks, live tracks, etc. that I got off the Radiohead usenet group.

    My music of choice when Planning all depends on what I am doing so here is my list.

    When I am mapping (GIS) something more mind numbing like
    Godsmack-awake
    Medeski Martin & Wood -Combustion
    Herbie Handcock - Headhunters
    NWA - Straight out of Compton
    Bush - Sixteen Stone

    If I am writing a plan or study I choose
    Phish - Any of my namy CDs are fine
    Grateful Dead - Prefer Live Dick's Pick CD's
    Steve Miller
    or
    Allman Brothers
    Incubus

    Great music selection. Phish or the Allman Brothers could help any planner rise to new heights in innovation, and even ultimate implementation of plans. What more could a planner ask?
    Keep these music insights coming!
