Let’s Listen To Some Music, Shall We?

I’ve shut down my social media.  I have shit-canned most of my ‘friends’ there.  I’ve restricted my news media time to fifteen minutes a day — and most of it local news.  I just can’t do it any more.  I hate the Left as much as I despise the Right.  If I were given a choice of two buttons to push:  one would make every person on the Right explode and the other would make everyone on the Left melt into a puddle of goo … I WOULD PUSH BOTH BUTTONS.

Some of you remember that I used to work in radio.  Eighteen years before I went off into sound engineering on television series.  I have a SHITLOAD of song titles at my fingertips.  Something like sixteen thousand or so.

I’ve made several of these playlists over the past couple of years.  I just threw this one together for your temporary entertainment.  If it puts a smile on your face, then mission accomplished.

I can make any playlist you like.  Give me a quick list and I will personalize it for you.

    Not bad DJ, not bat at all. Most of these encompass the 70’s as I recall, maybe a few from the 80’s :em01:

    I just threw this one together. I have thousands of song titles I can pick from — if it was ever recorded, I probably have it, or can get it.

    Just downloaded the 1966 Rolling Stones “Flowers” album, a favorite in my teens (a bit dated I am).

    DJ, not wanting to exceed my welcome but I have always wanted a playlist of “car/automotive” related songs across the years, including of course Gold Earring Radar Lover, and a couple on your current list such as Hitching a ride and Fast car as well as Spinning Wheel, Beach boys Fun Fun Fun and so on. There were even some early comedy songs like the guy that steals cadillac parts from GM and builds his own over the years or the Little Nash Rambler etc.

    In other words, any and all songs that had automotive related themes, all in one list. I don’t know if you are as enamored of all things automobile as I am, but if you like the challenge I would very much enjoy the result and maybe others would as well.

    Many of the titles escape me as they only were heard on the radio late 50’s through present and I never wrote them all down.

    I’m past eleven thousand songs so I’m pretty self reliant but your post is a sweet setup.

    So, I’m gonna add on a bit…

    Crazy Pants – Spiderbait

    For Terrapod:

    Johnny Cash – One Piece at a Time

    Deep Purple – Highway Star

    For me:

    Iron maiden – Deja Vu

    How about some jam bands? Like that 20-minute version of “whipping post” or the 15-minute one of “Free bird”. Sometimes that’s some really good stuff.

    I’ve started putting together LC Gunslinger’s playlist. You can find it under the “Rottie Playlists” button in the header. I will add the rest this evening.

    I like it Deej…..got my hundreds of playlists too and I’m playing them. Thanks for the tunes.

    Like you, I’m just sick of the whole goddamned thing. Thank God that when
    I returned from Europe last week there was a Doctor Who marathon on BBC America,
    that’s where I’ve been spending about 90% of my viewing time….that and watching
    my Rockies and Broncos lose.

    keep ’em coming man, we could all use a little soul soothing. Now back to painting, that soothes the soul too.

    My current musical obsessions are Blues, Surf Rock, and Psychedelic Rock…..

    is that too eclectic of a request? Got a lot of Surf Rock and Psychedelic if you need it.

    Like you, I’m just sick of the whole goddamned thing.

    I passed “being sick of the whole goddamned thing” a while back. Like fifteen or twenty events back…

    It’s why I decided to put all of the social media shit away. With “friends like these…”

    So, if you toss out a few titles, I can populate your Playlist here … I took the liberty of adding a couple of titles to your list just to get it started. If you give me some titles, I can make them yours…

    Absolutely marvelous! Something to run as a soundtrack while decompressing from the endless stream of nonsense that is this day and age. And not a bad track on there either!

    I really appreciate it!

    Alright, I’ve added a few more for Gunsniper. I will put some more up tomorrow. Meanwhile, I have a Walking Dead episode to watch, and some actual work that I have to get a move on…

    Well, hopefully with everyone submitting their own playlists, you will have quite the variety of music. I tossed up 425 more on my site in case you are looking for some ideas for your own playlist… I’m not going to keep them up there long, because I am shutting down my website at the end of the month.

    I’ve been shutting down a lot of things lately. Unloading the burdens. Ah, but that is for another day…

    UPDATE

    I’m going to have to put this little project on hold for the next few days. I have something that has come up and I have to devote my attention there.

    Deej,if you can, Seals and Crofts, maybe Mamas and Papas, Seekers…the halcyon days before it all went to shit. Early sixties and seventies stuff, what my mum used to call ‘easy listening”.

    Even Boz Scaggs, stuff like that.
