    Adblock Plus, no BS commercials...period! Only the content you requested, nothing more. Just checked and it has blocked 22,903 ads since I installed it last week. LOL
    Okay maybe a little longer than that but zero ads.
    Agreed, have had Adblock for quite some time now, works great no ads. Get it and get rid of the BS on You Tube.

      shop again, even though I eat outside because they play shlt ass corporate women's music, and really loud.

      Try this one Doozer, I try to only listen music without words, Milt Buckner is a good one too, The Beast.

          Folk / Bluegrass here. Also burned out on Classic Rock and Alternative, it's just to much with it being played everywhere all the time around here.

          Favorites include Colter Wall, Tyler Childers, The Dead South, Trampled by Turtles, Corb Lund, Willy Watson (check out his Gallows Pole cover), and some Florence and the Machine when I'm in the mood.

                My taste ranges all across the board... including some fairly modern music.

                A couple of years ago I and a guy in his early 20's was working on a truck down at the volunteer fire department. We took turns playing YouTube songs. The chief walked in while I had "Death of Love" by Cradle of Filth playing. Chief walked into his office, and didn't see that the next piece by Frank Sinatra was chosen by the 20-something. Shortly after the chief finished up his whatever and was walking out of the building. He looked at me, and said "I really prefer your taste in music". The kid and I both laughed, and didn't bother to explain to the chief.


                The story behind the song "Death of Love" is very interesting. Gilles de Reyes was a rich and powerful noble man of France who was a military leader under Joan D'Arc. He was absolutely convinced of her sanctity, and adored her. Thus, when the French betrayed her to the English and she was burned at the stake he was devastated. He loathed both the English for killing her, and the French for betraying her. He returned to his ancestral lands and started behaving strangely. He built a chapel to sing daily masses for the holy innocent. He produced a HUGE play about the siege of Orleans with 640 players, and staged it for free and even provided food and drink for the people who came to watch it. Finally the de Reyes family became alarmed at the spending of the family fortune and petitioned King Charles to forbid Gilles from spending more money. The king was only partially successful in that he managed to prevent Gilles from selling land, castles, and real estate, but he was unable to forbid the sales of personal items... Disgusted, Gilles de Reyes retreated to his country estates in Brittany, where dark things started to happen. Now the story splits...

                One side claims Gilles started employing alchemists, spiritualists, and demon summoners to try to talk to Joan D'Arc. When that failed, they allege that Gilles de Reyes started performing human sacrifice to try to contact Joan D'Arc. The claims included stories of torture, sexual abuse, and cannibalism. Claims were made that up to 200 children had gone missing from the countryside, along with unknown numbers of wanderers, travelers, and low born peasants. Some of this was confirmed by testimony from his servants and alleged accomplices which had been extracted by torture. People started coming forth with increasingly lurid stories and no-cross examination was allowed. Gilles was condemned by an ecclesiastical court, and allowed to confess and die shriven. Gilles de Reyes was slow hung over a roaring bonfire, but cut down before his body was consumed.

                The other side claims Gilles was crazy, but he wasn't a cannibal and monster. Instead they point out that the Duke of Brittany presided over the secular side of the trial, and the clerical side of the trial was overseen by the Archbishop of Brittany. After Gilles was executed, these two men received title to all of de Reyes lands and properties. Thus the claim is that this was nothing more than grand theft cloaked in a fake trial. A mock re-trial was held in 1992 using modern rules of evidence and testimony, and the verdict of NOT GUILTY was returned. There has been a lot of scholarly debate about the validity of the two trials, etc...

                The song by Cradle of Filth is based on these facts, and other references to the death of Joan D'Arc which I didn't include. Fun, eh? Take that Sinatra, you saccharine crooner.

                  I used to be like you, hated the same old same old on the radio until I found CKUA and Spotify
                  I can listen to thousands of songs I've never heard before and have discovered many artists that I enjoy.
                  Theres a whole world of undiscovered music and entertainment out there.

                  Sometimes Ill put on Robin Wlliams and laugh my way thru a project.

                      Came across this several years ago and listen to it often, Paul Weller with a horn and string section, recorded by the BBC so the sound quality is not bad.

                            Just now, Eric Johnson playing Cliffs of Dover. My playing was never that good, and certainly now with these arthritic fingers there's no way I'd ever pull that one off. Anything by Wes Montgomery is fine, mostly I like guitar solos by any good artist. Ayla Tesler-Mabe is a kid on Youtube that must have been sired by a Stratocaster. Unbelievable!

                                So- you're listening to speakers?

                                Me too. Just last night after I pulled into the driveway and shut off the engine- music still playing- I started to look for the speakers in the car. I've never actually checked to see where they were- top of the doors, bottom of the doors, in the dash? Sound comes out, but no sign of speakers anywhere-

                                At home it's different- there's about ten pairs that are active, and almost every room has a sound system. Of course, I've been into electronics my whole life- and now I spend time in a recording studio as well. I'd have to say I'm surrounded by sound-
