Tastemakers At Work

Crap, that was me above. Anyway.An hour is a long time. I can imagine listening to something for a half-hour. But an hour....that's a long time.I played Kissing Families five straight times once. And Rondo a Capricio gets played at least twice and often three times every time it comes up.
My calculator tells me I would have to play I Dream A Highway by Gillian Welch a little over 4 times. That sounds doable. I like that song.Her Majesty by the Beatles needs to repeat about 158 times. I like that song, but I don't know if I could go that far. Next meeting maybe.
In my last download session on emusic I found a band called Tortoise and decided to try one disc out. The first song, Djed, is 22 minutes long with no vocals. After hearing it for a couple weeks, I could play it three times straight. Easy.
I had a friend I used to work with and we would listen to Tortoise every once on a while. We would joke that they played jazz badly and that was what made it fun. It was like jazz versions of Highway Star with no words so I couldn't tell you what they were called.
That is so funny -- my one reservation about them so far is that they seem just a bit too jazzy for my taste.
It's time for my annual Cognitive Psychology Music Club - they've picked their favorite songs! Enjoy!
