Classical, folk, jazz, rock, county, blues… share what you’ve enjoyed listening to lately
Yes, sometimes I stumble across some pieces that are so great, I do not need to play them through my stereo to enjoy them. But I would put on the headphones at least. My laptop's built-in speakers are a joke, as they all are.

The following song "Belle" is part of the musical "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". Listening to it gave me a shiver; it was that good.

One winter day whilst sitting in a BOQ room in northern Japan I decided trudging around in the snow, 105” annual snowfall, beat sitting around. My aimless wandering ended at the BX, where I discovered a fantastic markdown sale on…. a Bose SoundLink II, Bose the audiophile horror of horrors, what the heck, why not. (Don’t tell anyone)

I was able to hook up the Flat Screen’s audio by cable input and played tunes from my laptop over Bluetooth. Acceptable sound, great sale price, and just toss it in the suitcase when deploying, the SoundLink turned out to be a worthy purchase.

Blue tooth though not Hi-Fi, has proven to be more enjoyable than laptop speakers.

Nice. Donovan got DH's attention, and he wandered in to see what I've been listening to. I was listening to Linda Ronstadt for a while I was painting today, because she's great to sing along to (as long as I crank her up loud enough that no one can hear me). In the interest of it's about the music, but not necessarily the quality of the recording, I think this is just a really nice version of this song. Found this YouTube. I don't usually listen to it from YouTube, tho...

I don't listen to a lot of Indie, kudos to Lorde for this song.

Puddles nailed the cover

Here's something of which I was unaware. Randy Newman wrote the score for "The Natural". I always associated him with "Major League"!

The Vocal Majority was always a favorite when in Big D.

Very, very sorry to hear about Jesse. Very few people have written so eloquently about simple truths.
