I listen to a lot of music what does that mean?
I listen extensively to irish music and I have played tin whistle/irish flute before this life. I picked one up in 2007 and could play it pretty much right away. Been playing it daily since. I have too many favorites to even list. Irish, scottish, confederate, German soldier's songs and military marches is pretty much my taste in music. Anything good with bagpipes is an instant hit. Not the discordant war pipes, perhaps. Sometimes it can be good. The more melodious kinds like the smallpipes or uilleann.
This is a song I only had to name check to clear a pub last year:
The customers were having a musical pub crawl without rebel music. I pointed out that a pub crawl was about brotherhood just like men under a flag of war. I pointed out the foolishness in what they were listening to. That cleared the pub rapidly. The band leader couldn't cope with the humiliation.
James Brown such a legend
Yeah. I like innocuous songs too, but that one is a classic. Most of my favorites are war songs. Like "The rising of the moon". It captures the spirit of 1798 quite well.
Yea Ritter. I died in one life in 1798. The Dubliners is played in pubs. I never understood why such music resonated with me, I assumed it was because I was Irish by maybe my soul was remembering even when my conscious mind wasn't.
The Oldest Known Melody c.1400 BC!
Not the beautiful images, but the language is part of my soul. Roughly, I understand lyrics in Ladino.
I've always been partial to Bobby Darin's version of A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square. Always associating it with a favourite actor.
But, Glenn Miller's version from 1940, which I have just heard for the first time tonight, resonates far deeper. An evening at the Savoy, or a dance during my courtship with my husband. Listening a second time, I'm leaning more toward the latter. As I mimed along to the lyrics I know so well already, my breath caught in the back of my throat.
It does seem to be Glenn Miller's music that often strikes my soul.
The music in the 2000 film "O Brother Where Art Thou" is a very American folk style. I'm not sure to what extent it would have been heard or listened to in England, 1897 to 1959.
Notably both that film and the 1973 movie "Paper Moon" were set during a particular era in the U.S.A. Perhaps that is a lifetime you are recalling, rather than one in England.
Andrews Sisters - Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
Yes. Handel's Largo from Xerxes (Ode to a Tree). Sends me. I am not sure if it is relevant to a past life or not but it has resonated with me from the first time of hearing it c50 years ago.
EDIT: This was one of my favorite tunes when I was a child (9 or 10 years old). Took me ages, literally, to find it back. Had no idea that it would be listed as a Christmas song. Neither did I realize back then that it is an anti-war song.
I always loved that one too - stop the cavalry
It's on one of my christmas cds
I figured out lately that some 65 - 67 songs trigger my memory like from the kinks and manfred mann (death of a clown, waterloo sunset, semi detached suburban mr james) -- i turn them on and soon some scene/pic pops up.
