  • Good songs of all time

    Hey guys, well one of my initiatives these days is to get ahold of a nice song collection (records, cds) for my own personal collection in order to enjoy them now and time to come -- to share with family, friends and some day my children.

    Now I am a young guy, but I am a fan of music in general, and like some of the oldies as well.

    I would like to know if you guys (the oldies) could suggest some good song, artists, albumns -- specific songs on specific albumns would be good too!

    I have gotten ahold of albumns from Otis Redding after hearing "These Arms of Mine" on the TV Show LOST, as well as "Make your own kind of music" from Mamas and Papas also from LOST -- now I havn't heard of any of these artists and didn't like some of the songs other than these specific ones from LOST, but I really love this slow (lazy) songs and really want to expand my collection on top of what my dad has to incorporate a wide array of arists.

    Again, I am a fan of music period, anything with a good beat and good lyrics!

    Most all of Pink Floyd's albums are good. Especially Dark Side of the Moon. (Edit: And Pink Floyd's The Wall, as well. Can't forget that. )

    Pink Floyd, for me, is hard to put into a specific genre. I guess rock, but it's definitely not a rock album in terms of style. It's very mellow, and listening to it feels more like a journey than anything else.

        You could check out Pandora.
        You make a radio selection and Pandora will then find similar types of artists to suit your tastes.

          That is a neat tool. I checked out Pandora and really not getting anything I like.

          I am asking for personal preferences too! Share a moment You and your loved one's love song, or something...

            Hmmm, by oldies, do you mean 1950's and such? If so, here you go.
            My Way - Frank Sinatra
            Ney York, New York - Frank Sinatra
            Fly Me To The moon - Frank Sinatra
            Comy Fly With Me - Frank Sinatra
            Can't Take My Eyes Off You - Frankie Valli

            Now, the albums? Some of the Sinatra songs are from 'my way - the best from frank sinatra'. The rest? I'm very sorry but I don't know them.

                  I suggest you look for/download Frank Sinatra's songs. I love them all, I'm sure you will too.

                        It is all down to personal taste of course, but if you are wanting a total and complete record collection, you should add some music from the Ambient and Progressive Rock genres. Try obtaining some of the following:

                        Older Progressive Rock
                        Genesis: Trick of the Tail, Seconds Out, And then there were Three
                        Pink Floyd: Wish you were here
                        Yes: Close to the Edge (classic - one of the best albums of all time)
                        Manfred Manns Earth Band: the Roaring Silence

                        Recent Progressive Rock
                        Frost: Black Light Machine (free mp3 here - http://www.rosfest.com/Sounds_&_MP3/...%20Machine.mp3)
                        Syzygy: Moth or Distant Light (available free from their www site)

                        Ambient

                        Global Communication: Pentamerous Metamorphosis (superb Ambient album)
                        Pete Namlook: The Fires of Ork
                        Steve Roach: Calm Before the Storm
                        Me: Dark (one of my shorter pieces free here http://www.mrjohn.co.uk/music/dark.mp3 )
                        Me: Electric Chariot (another of mine http://www.mrjohn.co.uk/music/electric.mp3 )

                        Prog Rock is very orchestral in nature and has some superb musical colours and expressions - especially guitar and moog synth work. Ambient, well... little or no lyrics, that music that takes you wherever you want to go really. My fav génre.

                        Could name a lot more, but that's several hours worth... happy researching.

                          I really like your Electric, know any ambient music along this lines? I like ambient songs too, and would like to expand my collection of these too.
