Oh How I Love The Weather

So today has been a really warm day. Averaging 27 C here in Yorkshire… But that was to*day*…

Now to to*night* where it is HAMMERING it down with near constant flashes of lightning. No heavy crashing of thunderous might… Just a constant rolling thunder. I can feel the hairs on my arm tingle…

This wasn’t forecast, although with the amount of energy held up I’m not at all surprised there have been thunderstorms.

I wish I could take a photo of the sky, I really do… But my phone just can’t produce anything worthwhile. I did, however grab a REALLY crappy video after the rain had stopped but the thunder and lightning carried on.


Albums and Artists

Do you have a favourite band?

When it comes to music, many people, when asked, will tell you that they have a favourite artist or band. Some people will probably list off a few if pressed. I can’t do that, not really. I tend to go for tracks rather than artists. I could name any number of tracks I like. I may even have one or two off the same album but chances are that if I like a song I won’t like the majority of that persons/groups stuff.

Metallica, Fleetwood Mac, Megadeth, Roxette, QueenCeelo Green and Savage Garden to name a few. All great artists or bands and I really like the songs listed. But if I like 2 songs on an album then… Well! B-)
So far I have only found one band I actually like enough to put an album on and listen to the whole thing after the first listen through. Ozric Tentacles.

Do you guys have a favourite band? And by that I mean actually enjoying the majority of the songs released as singles or on albums?




BTW… If the wife reads this (Hey, sweetie!) and actually follows the links she will probably be surprised I didn’t use my standard song of theirs. B-)

Something To Listen To

I’m a big one for music. But, although I do sing, a lot… And very badly… I do prefer instrumental music.

So, 3 pieces of instrumental music for you. 2 are classical pieces you may well know, one is Psychedelic Rock that you probably don’t. B-)

Valse Triste – Sibelius 

Johann Strauss – Radetzky March

And my favourite musical track of all time.
Ozric Tentacles – Kick Muck
