    The Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix Experience (Are You Experienced album) 1967

         

    Slowhand, this was my posting under the heading: who is your favorite musician or band.  See if you still think so.

Most people that know me say that they have never come across anyone with such an eclectic taste in music as me.  But who am I to argue with that with my I-Pod currently loaded with 6,524 songs.  My collection is mostly blues and rock, but I really can’t think of any type of music that is not included.  Here is a brief (???) list of some of my favorites, so judge for yourself.

          Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jefferson Airplane, Eagles, Michael Jackson, Moby, Ventures, Elton John, Platters, Enigma, Santana, Ozzy Osbourn, Brule’, Gene Autry, BB King, Bare-naked Ladies, M.C. Hammer, Gotye, Howling Wolf, Etta James, Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers, Seal, Doobie Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Kyu Sakamoto, Chicago, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimmy Buffett, Moody Blues,  Taj Mahal, Doors, Beatles, Queen, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Randy Newman, Louis Armstrong, Who, Beach Boys, Meat Loaf, Henry Mancini, IL Devo, Concrete Blond, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, Enya, Chet Atkins, Doobie Brothers, John Lee Hooker, Roy Clark, Beethoven, Everly Brothers, Joe Walsh, Steppenwolf, Joe Cocker, Duanne Eddie, Roy Orbison, Abba, Proco Harum, Yes, Joe Satriani, Simon and Garfunkel, Tchaikovsky, Johannes Linstead, Stevie Wonder, Loreena Mckennitt, Righteous Brothers, Ennio Morricone, Chris Isaac, Allman Brothers, Frank Sinatra, Sade, Gershwin, Mark Knopler, Pete Townshend and Warren Zevon to name just a few!:P:P:P

Let’s Dance Chris Rea

 

BetaQdave,

 

I Like nearly all the rock groups you mention but could never get into classical music except for Holst’s  The Planets or Sinatra or Elvis for that matter. Probably for a Brit my love of so much American music is unusual. The first was the Doobies, which led into Steely Dan and then the Feat and so on and then more recently country such as Merle, Johnnie Cash etc and even Foster the People. Its odd how musical tastes develop as none of my family were musical at all.

    Dance Sister Dance- Santana (Amigos album) 1976

                  I keep finding more and more new stuff that appeals to me all the time.  I keep looking up the songs that I don't know on this site and find a lot that I like.

                 Same here!

    Simple Sister - Procol Harum (From their 5th album titled Broken Barricades in 1971)

                            (Dispite having this on the Best of Procol Harem album it isn't one of my favorites, as a mater of fact it pales :rolleyes::blush:                                in comparison to my favorite of theirs A Whiter Shade Of Pale.)

Don't Worry Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin (Simple Pleasures album) 1988

    The song was recorded completely A Capella with just his voice overdubbing the background.  It was released as part of the film soundtrack for the movie Cocktail in 1988 and re-released later the same year on his album where it reached No. 1 in September. The song was also a part of several other films including: 2005’s Jarhead, 2006’s Flushed Away, 2008’s WALL-E, and 2018’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.  It won three Grammy awards in 1989 for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

    Incidentally, the song was used in George H. W. Bush's 1988 U.S. presidential election as Bush's 1988 official presidential campaign song, without Bobby McFerrin's permission or endorsement. In reaction, McFerrin (who was a Democrat) publicly protested that particular use of his song, including stating that he was going to vote against Bush, to make the point even clearer, he completely dropped the song from his own performance repertoire. The Bush campaign then reportedly desisted from further use of the song. (Pirating is not just limited to ship modeling apparently.)

    It is commonly credited to Bob Marley, however since he died of Cancer in 1981, (seven years before its release) it would seem rather unlikely.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
