It's great to have an area on the forum like this one whereas folks can go to simply because it's a good place. It sure brings back a lot of good memories as I scroll through.

Anyway, I wanted to share some videos of some friends of mine from West Tennessee, who have disbanded a few years ago, but I helped getting the first good demos made (when I worked in the recording industry). I remain hopeful they can get together once again with most of the original members.

One of the first demos we did:

Then on of my favorites:

Then a couple of more tunes that did pretty well for them:

Then kinda a country feel to it:

Then the first Country song I worked on, "way back when" in Tennis Memphisee:

Lastly, I wanted to include one of my all-time favorite artists, Stevie Ray Vaughan, that I was blessed to have worked with on his last album. Most every song we recorded in one take (others with very minimum overdubs) just the way it appears on the album. These guy were really awesome! Here is a tune from it (man this thread sure brings back some good memories):

If you don't mind my asking, what exactly is that, Yuki? I'm too lazy at the present to google it; however, I feel you could provide a better answer anyway.

If you don't mind my asking, what exactly is that, Yuki? I'm too lazy at the present to google it; however, I feel you could provide a better answer anyway.

Bhangra is a genre of music popular in Northern India and Pakistan. It seems to combine Hip Hop, Reggae, and Hindustani Classical genres for a unique musical experience. A lot of people who listen to it start dancing or bobbing their heads to the beat without noticing or being able to stop themselves. The rhythms and melodies are intoxicating. Punjabi is the most common language that Bhangra is sung in because Bhangra started in the northwestern Indian province of Punjab. Most of the musicians of Bhangra are Sikh, but there are a few that are Muslim in Pakistan (where Bhangra has been big for the last 20 years and where Punjabi is a popular language).

This is the quote of the day for yesterday from Shabdkosh in English and Punjabi:

“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.” - James Dean

“सपने ऐसे देखें मानों आप सदा जीते रहेंगे, और जीएं ऐसे मानो आज का दिन आपके जीवन का आखिरी दिन हो। ” - जेम्स डीन


Several Examples of Bhangra:

Popular songs from 2010 and 2011

A mix from 2012:

Infamous song that dominated the internet 10 years ago:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg-4c4uQmdo

The Vocaloid version of the aforementioned infamous song:

JJ Cale & Eric Clapton Road to Escondido 2006

Damned good music.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBUY6Wm4Mpw


The Road to Escondido is an album by J. J. Cale and Eric Clapton. It was released on 7 November 2006. Contained on this album are the final recordings of Billy Preston, to whom the album is dedicated.

In 2004, Eric Clapton held the Crossroads Guitar Festival, a three day festival in Dallas, Texas. Among the performers was J.J. Cale, giving Clapton the opportunity to ask Cale to produce an album for him. The two started working together and eventually decided to record an album. A number of high profile musicians also agreed to work on the album, including Billy Preston, Derek Trucks, Taj Mahal, Pino Palladino, John Mayer, Steve Jordan and Doyle Bramhall II. In a coup, whether intended or not, the entire John Mayer Trio participated on this album in one capacity or another.

Escondido is a city near Cale's hometown of Valley Center, California, in San Diego County. Eric Clapton owned a mansion in Escondido in the '80s and early '90s. Cale and Clapton thought it would be a good name for the album because of their dual acquaintanceship with the city.

The album won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2008.

All songs by J. J. Cale except where noted.

00:00 "Danger" -- 5:30
05:30 "Heads in Georgia" -- 4:12
09:36 "Missing Person" -- 4:26
13:56 "When This War Is Over" -- 3:49
17:40 "Sporting Life Blues" (Brownie McGhee) -- 3:31
21:06 "Dead End Road" -- 3:30
24:30 "It's Easy" -- 4:19
28:42 "Hard to Thrill" (Eric Clapton/John Mayer) -- 5:11
33:45 "Anyway the Wind Blows" -- 3:56
37:37 "Three Little Girls" (Eric Clapton) -- 2:44
40:19 "Don't Cry Sister" -- 3:10
43:24 "Last Will and Testament" -- 3:57

The theme song to The Chipmunks.  My kids are in to that series now...

"We're the Chipmunks!  C-H-I-P-M-U-N-K!  We're the Chipmunks!  Coming on stronger than ever before!"

You're very welcome for putting that song into your heads.

Muah haah haaaaah!

Ha HA! I've found a way to beat those awful Chipmunks out of my head!

Get that tune out of your head - scientists find how to get rid of earworms

They are the songs you cannot get out of your head. Now scientists may have found a way to help anyone plagued by those annoying tunes that lodge themselves inside our heads and repeat on an endless loop.
Researchers claim the best way to stopping the phenomenon, sometimes known as earworms – where snippets of a catchy song inexplicably play like a broken record in your brain – is to solve some tricky anagrams.
This can force the intrusive music out of your working memory, they say, allowing it to be replaced with other more amenable thoughts.
But they also warn not to try anything too difficult as those irritating melodies may wiggle their way back into your consciousness.
For those unwilling to carry around a book of anagrams, a good novel may also do the trick.

TAKE THAT knobster! Teach you to mess with ME! :sign10: :threvil:
