      Gotta love Queen – but they were Rock music’s version of music hall πŸ™‚

      And here’s my take on matters – rock music, and rock ‘n roll, are very different beasts in that you can’t dance to rock music – but have to to rock ‘n roll.

      Bohemian Rhapsody is magnificent – no two ways about it – but you can’t dance to it like youi can, say, to Brown Sugar, can you?!

      Discuss amongst yourselves.

    Not rock and roll, not blues but very 1970s, from the BBC Radiophonics Workshop –

  13. Stephen Richards says:

    I’m a very old ex-guitarist of a small town band. I like pretty well most of these wonderful posts particularly the Eagles.

  14. Stephen Richards says:

    What a great post and comments. Thanks Steven and you guys. Made my sunday.

  15. Aurora Svant says:

    Sometimes, I choose one to be a particular theme-music for all programming sessions of a project, so there are a few titles that I used to have played continuously for up to a couple of weeks while I’m developing a module… Provides some background music and avoid being distracted by the music changing every few minutes.

  16. Lawrence13 says:

    That’s a hard one Steve but here in the UK we have a radio program called ‘Desert Island Discs’ where you choose ten pieces of music. So my choices here are ones that I never grow tired off.

    In no particular order

  23. fridayjoefriday says:

    Well now I don’t know if I can top those before mine, but I give it a try.
    First off this isn’t music video, but with all of the grief in the world, I’d thought a little pledge would go nicely.

    Now a song for the despot of America, and his band of scum.

    That’s enough for now, but there are many more. I knew I forgot the most important one of all. This song should be the Tea Party’s anthem

      Steppenwolf! Yeah – saw them way way back in Manchester – UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology). John Fahey played as well, on a stool in the bar. Saw Pionk Floyd there, with Roy Harper. 10 bob a ticket. Happy daze πŸ™‚

  24. SandyInLimousin says:

    and The Kursaal Flyers- Little Does She Know

  25. Mike Mangan says:

    Scorpions doing …”Dust in the Wind.” Listen past 1:30 for full effect…

  26. Robert Austin says:

    I have a ton of “likes” in rock and doo-wop but opera is crack cocaine for me.

  27. Robertv says:

    Depends the mood I’m in. From Beethoven to AC DC. But you can wake me up for fried liver and onions.

  28. jeremyp99 says:

    And your first live rock ‘n roll?

    Me – Cliff Richard and the Shadows, ABC Ardwick, Manchester, winter of 1958. Cliff hadn’t got god then, and was going to be England’s Elvis. Shurely shome mishtake.. πŸ™‚

  29. jimash1 says:

    From The Band through Red Skelton to Steppenwolf and Yes, I like all of the above.

    If you’ve got some quality sound you will like this

    Sometimes we all get the Blues
