I'm very fond of Formidable Vegetable Sound System and Nahko. I put together a "Permaculture Inspiration Music" playlist on YouTube.  Nahko uses potty language occasionally, but I think he does so appropriately.

Toby Mac! This totally dates me as being old, but I loved DCTalk (which TobyMac used to be a part of) and I still listen to their old albums! Newsboys and Audio Adrenalin are also fun music for me. The OC Supertones also have some really fun Christian regae music.

If I need to get motivated to get some cleaning done, I turn on some Credence Clearwater Revival. Three Dog Night is another fun "Oldies" band.

I love those guys

The kimchi song is addictive.  And the recipe actually works, but for some reason mine didn't explode ;(

When I was 5 years old, waiting for the school bus to take me to kindergarten, some high school kids gave me a ride in their sports car, that was pulsating with the sound of Jumpin Jack Flash, followed by other stuff from the British Invasion. Stones, Zeppelin, The Who ...

Before that I had heard church music, almost exclusively. Old men and women croaking endlessly to tired tunes from a century past. From then on I was only interested in music that came from storefronts, passing cars and the occasional young relative who had their own radio. It was like rain falling on a cultural drought. This was September of 1969.

Two years later, I was introduced to Jim Morrison, by our preacher who told us about this young man who had just died and was on his way to hell. I hadn't heard any of the music, but I knew the sort of people that our preacher sent Straight to Hell. Interesting people, who were the opposite of him. We often heard sermons warning about the dangers of rock music and other forms of entertainment. I had never seen a movie in a theater or heard the music of most of those he talked about. But I was dying to get out of that bubble.

I believe this early experience had much to do with shaping my taste in music and culture in general.

Also in 1969, came Larry Norman, with "Why should the Devil have all the good music?" Apparently, Dale's community wasn't the only one that thought "rock and roll" was of the devil.


Thankfully, Larry Norman broke ground for many. And now, bands like TobyMac, can rock out in any musical genera while retaining the meaning they want in their lyrics.

I think you were trying to say "gay". It's okay to use the word. You can also use homosexual or queer, if you prefer. :-) Thankfully our society has become accepting enough of people's sexual orientations that it is now totally fine to say someone is... gay! I don't know about Larry Norman but yes, Liberace was gay, although from what I know he stayed closeted his whole life. Probably because society wasn't nearly as accepting in his time.

I've been listening to Roomful of Blues quite a bit lately.
They've been around since the 70s and are still touring.
They have a very strong horn section.
Try listening to "Boogie Woogie Country Girl"

Thanks to the likes of Larry Norman. I listen to Skillet, Casting Crowns, Crowder, and so on.

I appreciate all music ... except RAP, primarily because it isn't - just a lot of untalented people with dubious connections that have nothing worth saying but do so regardless. (Eminem is just funny)

I think music is a reflection and expression of culture, including frustrations and the whole spectrum of emotions. 
I wouldn't dismiss anyone's musical expression although I don't have to like it
I think in each genre some musicians are more expressive and 'speaking' from the heart than others

Isn't it wonderful there are so many listening choices?

I don't like RAP either.  But, I work with teenagers and have seen some lyrics to some RAP.  A little of it does actually show some talent at putting together some fairly complicated rhymes.
Now if they just could write music.

As a lifelong musician, including teaching people of all ages, I find it particularly sad when people of any background attempt to limit what music is and is not. There actually is no limit to human expression, and it can and will always take whatever form it craves. Spoken word, hiphop, opera, jazz, classical, noise, can all be wonderous and beautiful expressions of music/humanity. Not being your cup of tea is fine, but wholly rejecting And condemning it is plain Sillysillz.. esp if you know nothing about it and its culture. Anyways this the latest piece i looooove
both guys play such lyricism.

There was some talk around the table the other day about appropriate love songs for a wedding. Of course there were Classics like Elvis's can't help falling in love with and Right Down the Line by Gerry Rafferty.

I had one that I considered one of the best love songs ever written. It's from Billy Idol. Rebel Yell. Enjoy.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VdphvuyaV_I

Last night a little dancer came dancin' to my door
Last night a little angel came pumping on the floor
She said, come on baby, I got a license for love
And if it expires, pray help from above
Because
In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more
More, more, more

She don't like slavery, she won't sit and beg
But, when I'm tired and lonely she sees me to bed
What set you free and brought you to me, babe
What sets you free, I need you hear by me
Because

In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more

He lives in his own heaven
Collects it to go from the seven eleven
Well he's out all night to collect a fare
Just so long, just so long, it don't mess up his hair

I walked the ward with you, babe
A thousand miles with you
I dried your tears of pain, babe
A million times for you

I'd sell my soul for you, babe
For money to burn for you
I'd give you all, and have none, babe
Justa, justa, justa, justa to have you here by me

Because
In the midnight hour she cried, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell she cried, more, more, more
More, more, more

Oh yeah little baby
She want more
More, more, more, more, more

Oh yeah little angel
She want more
More, more, more, more, more

Songwriters: Billy Idol / Steve Stevens
