My best friend from school days has always loved heavy metal - yet he also loves Glen Campbell. A play list of metal and Glen Campbell sounds mad. Still, i'm not much different. I love progressive rock (neo-prog sub genre) yet i also love The Pet Shop Boys. So my M&M SD card is full of prog and the PSB. In addition, i have a couple of really old pop songs that i just love too including: Those Were The Days by Mary Hopkin and This Little Bird by Marianne Faithful. I just love it when my shuffle puts these old tracks on and thanks to the internet, i have even managed to download the original cover art for them which pops up nicely on my M&M!

In my opinion, music is a huge and wide open thing, so I try to be open and broad with my music choices. Bit of pop, metal, dance, trance, 80's all on shuffle, and I think I've got most boxes ticked! I also have a few songs that my brother and I both label as 'guilty pleasures' such as 'The way you make me feel' by Steps! (prob gonna regret admitting to that!)

My favourite car music has been David Lindley (and El Rayo X), ZZ Top and the Kinks (1980s era) so far.

But I'm gonna make a Rock'n'Roll compilation ...
Pat Boone, Bobby Darin, Rickie Nelson, Neil Sedaka, Sam Cooke +++
Not the "No.1 artists" ... Okay, Buddy Holley will be present, too - but with songs like "Mailman, bring me no more blues", "I'm gonna love you too" or "Rockin' around with Ollie Vee" ...

Very little classical interests me. Probably only Pachelbel's Canon which has been used by a number of pop acts over the years such as The Farm and All Together Now which i like too. I'm not sure Motorhead can be listed under 60s. I went to see them on their Bomber/Ace of Spades tour around 1982 at Hammersmith. They weren't the loudest band I have ever seen though. That credit goes to Trust, a French metal band, who were supporting Iron Maiden in the early 80s.

I discovered a band on youtube I had never heard of before ...

The Termites ...
were a band from the late 1960s in Jamaica and played Rocksteady Reggae ...


It sounds a bit like The Platters smoking grass ...

Very old faschioned Rocksteady with a wonderful "Schweineorgel" ("pig keyboard" - cheap electronic keyboard), great flatwound strings bass and worn out brass ...

I think this will be my "summer music 2014" ... Here two links ...
The Termites, "Miss Stella": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwhkVw3EzKY
The Termites, "Have mercy Mr. Percy": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsWW6SppPlU

Yooo maaaaaan!
