The roar of the A/C in my office.

We listened to "Punk Rock Girl" by the Dead Milkmen the other day.  We frequently talk about songs from the past and when someone says " How did that one go?" we ask Google to play it.  Stick out tongue

My coworkers didn't like "Let Us Slay" by Gwar.  That's their only song I like, and I absolutely love the video!

A piece by Bach.  I'm not a big fan of Bach but that is what was playing on my classical music station.

There's always P.D.Q. Bach.  I had heard about him way back when I was in grade school, just before H.S. and I got to go to a concert of him years ago Some years ago near Kississmee.The character was developed by a music professor and broiught classical a bit of a comic look and sound.

Rainer Hersch is having fun with classical too.

The hooked on classical series or records was brought out to combat disco.

I just got done playing the soundtrack to Tomorrowland.

The late great Norm McDonald once said "I was on a deserted island with the ability to play my five favorite records and it didn't make a bit of difference".  
I love Norm 

The 5 records I play most often

U2 Achtung baby-In my opinion they still make great music but this is a masterpiece.

Rush 2112-Probably the reason I'm a little hard of hearing today.  As a kid I would blast side 1 with headphones on.

Led Zepplin 1-Great blues tracks done by rock gods

The Who Who's Next-One of the all time greats at the top of their game.  it's called Baba O'Riley not Teenage wasteland.

Metallica Master of Puppets-Don't listen to this while modeling.  You'll destroy the entire stash.

Love PDQ!  He used to have a weekly  show on our local classical station.

My classical tastes tend towards modern stuff.  To avoid what seems like an oxymoron (modern classical) I call it 20th and 21 classical music, but it starts with the late 19th century Russian group.  Love John Williams.

LOVE the Dead Milkmen!  You should ask Google to play their song, "Blues Song" some time.  Its hilarious!

Uh Oh! wpwar 11:

         I guess I should stop then. I play Metallica in the shop because of the acoustics. Besides with Hearing Aids the volume has to be lower but all the Musical nuances are there!

Yeah, I found out about the Dead Milkmen while watching Beavis and Butthead.  Stick out tongue  I found the video to be a hoot!  Plus I liked Butthead's comment about how the girl would eat the guy for lunch.

A good friend of mine went through a rough patch during his adolescence and listened to a lot of punk rock.  That's where I got my exposure to the genre.  Suicidal Tendency's video to "Institutionalized" was also pretty funny.  My friend asked if my mom spray cleaned the leaves on the tree in my front yard.  Big Smile  But I drink Coke, not Pepsi.

"All I wanted was a Coke, but she kept offering me a Pepsi..."

Can't say that I have ever heard of the Despondent Astronauts.

Thanks for posting the links, PFJN2.

Interesting music. Reminded me of early Talking Heads or maybe DEVO.

Here's a great one I tumbled to just yesterday, that may be of special interest to this group.

Reading the obit for British actor Leslie Phillips, who passed away just the other day after a long and productive career, I saw that in addition to his roles in the "Carry On" films and the more recent Harry Potter franchise, he also starred in a long-running BBC radio comedy called "The Navy Lark."

Think "McHale's Navy," with (for you British comedy afficianados) a little  "Dad's Army" thrown in...set in the late-'50s Royal Navy -- "on a tiny island just beyond the view of HMNB Portsmouth...." There's the usual (and predictable) cast of characters, centering around the largely-clueless officers and crew of HM frigate Troutbridge. It boasts an excellent ensemble including future 'Dr. Who' Jon Pertwee, "Last of the Summer Wine's" Michael Bates, and Ronnie Barker of "The Two Ronnies."

Several hundred* half-hour episodes may be found streaming or for download (completely free, with no sign-up or registration required) on one of my favorite sources for old audio, RadioEchoes.

It's not exactly ground-breaking stuff: the same old familiar comedic situations and...shall we say...venerable jokes...but it's all done with that uniquely dry and clever British wit. I'm already about a dozen episodes in, and they're just a hoot.

Well worth a listen!

*Wikipedia informs me it was broadcast from 1959 through 1977! Talk about "sea legs!"

Hi,

They were a small local band in the DC area a couple decades ago that one of my college classmates was in.  Knowing him I wouldn't be surprised if they were a little bit influenced by the Talking Heads, Devo, and the Violent Femess, etc
