Music

I suppose I just want somewhere to park the music I listen to. 

I listen to all kinds, all genres, all eras, whatever catches my attention really.  It would be nice to be able to share the enjoyment with people who also like what I like, or learn about music others like and why etc.

So that's what this group is about.  Join in if you want to.....

An awful lot of those old songs were great from the get-go and have withstood the test of time; I'd rather listen to them than what passes for music most of the time 'round here. Still, there are wonderful songs and bright new artists appearing on the scene all the time, but to be able to enjoy Mendelssohn, Rachmaninov, Mozart, etc. as easily as modern artists and compositions displays a rare maturity and excellent taste, Opalgem.

Oh great! Glad you enjoy music as much as I do. :) I hope you have fun in this group :)



I'm not that up to date either with music. I'm still stuck playing old songs and stumbling across new artists as I go.

Thank you for starting this group, Opalgem, and for giving a brief explanation of your reasoning. I found that both helpful and encouraging when determining whether to post another song by an (I think) excellent artist you've also posted here. I’m not at all up to date with what happens in the music world, having far too many responsibilities that make even hearing music somewhat rare these days, but I still manage to find many enjoyable pieces. I intend to explore this group thoroughly and hope to add a number of my own selections, each with a little story about the reason for its significance. Perhaps you’ll enjoy them as I’ve enjoyed those selections you’ve contributed.

I don't listen at all to music and am just starting to learn a little about it!

I totally understand where you're coming from. About wanting to share enjoyment.
