    Musical Fun by TicklingCancer

    Everyone has that music that just takes them away. It could be classical, rock, country....anything!! I found myself today working out at the gym listening to Les Miserables on Pandora. One second I'm doing seated curls and the next I have my eyes closed and I'm waving my hand in the air like a conductor as I'm listening to a girl sing "I Dreamed A Dreamed". Just like that I was lost in the music. I'm sure other people at the gym saw this taking place but I tried not to make eye contact with anyone..lol. So the question is "What type of music can you turn on and get completely lost in?"

      I listen to mediation/yoga music a lot, it helps me relax and mediate - calms me down - i also like Gregorian chants, and Baroque Music. Classic Rock (Stones, Beatles etc)- heck i like almost anything except heavy metal and rap. i even like the occasional disco to work out to.

      I am totally with Sue Rae..I listen to the same..I picked up some very cool music at resale shops. Music to inspire positive thinking by Dr. Lee R. Bartel and soundscape music along with meditation music each one for a buck..Gotta love it.
      I walk into those resale shops and in 15 minutes I have all the good stuff in my cart. I just got a brand new In Styler for 3.00 bucks.

      But I also treated myself to the Oprah and Deepak trilogy for mothers day.. includes the 21 days meditation challenge which I love.

      I like "The Message" (Christian Pop & Rock) station on XM Satellite radio. My favorite group is Philips, Craig and Dean.

      I listen to Country (the Band Perry is a current fav) or NPR when driving and my ipod is full of esoteric stuff---everything from soundtracks (The remake of the Italian Job), Jennifer Hudson, Diana Krall, early Marc Antony, the concept album for Chess, Wagner, etc. and many more.

      Hmmm....maybe I AM an old hippie, as my children insist! For working out, I adore Stones, ZZ Top, Jon Bon Jovi, Tom Petty, Heart, Blondie, Joan Jett even some old Eric Clapton & the Animals...but keep it loud & fast! Of course, while I'm "a little bit rock 'n roll", my husband is "a little bit (ugh) country." Opposites attract?

      I'm holding out for your version of "I dreamed a dream" and if there is a possibility of my getting lost in the music, that will have to be it. So cut that demo buddy, I'm on pins and needles! Carm.

      Cat Stevens for me. Almost always can relate to majority of his songs!

      I like Gospel. When I was it the Hospital someone loaned me an album by the Gateway choir. I really loved their rendition of "How Great Thou Art"

      I love Kid Rock's "Born Free" CD. I listen to it all the time. However the Beach Girl in me loves the Beach Boys. Their music always makes me happy and dreaming of the perfect place to be and that is at the beach. I'm just a surfer girl at heart.

      Mostly baroque for me. The husband is a blues man, so I listen to that when I'm a captive audience in his car. When he's in my car, he says he'd rather leap out of the car than listen to my music. Being a church organist, I really get lost in things like Bach's "b minor Mass", Mozart masses, Vivaldi, and on and on. I find that the faster the rhythm, the faster I drive. Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Hosanna" from his "Requiem" is just plain wild. It's loud, fast, and more like a piece from a show (well, it is Andrew Lloyd Webber.) I also like The Beatles, "Les Miz" and Gilbert and Sullivan.

      Call me crazy but there's certain types of EDM (House, trance) that do it for me. I check out for a bit. :)

      I love musical theatre, especially Andrew Lloyd Weber, as so many others have mentioned. I like oldies, be it back to the Beatles and Monkees or the 80's. I also like classical, especially Mozart -- I would study to classical when I was in college. My big problems is that I occasionally get "ear worms" -- those songs that get stuck and won't stop!

      I have a lot to respond to.

      SueRae - From time to time I will work out to classical music but I'm not sure I know how to meditate. I LOVE classic rock.

      CAS - The resale shop is a great idea. We have a couple of them around my house in McKinney, TX.

      Spunky - I LOVE LOVE LOVE musical theater. Last Friday I took my daughter to see a performance of Les Mis which was done the McKinney Youth Theater. I was BLOWN away!! It was the full play and those kids could SING!!

      Cindy - I'm a big fan of PCD. Some of the best voices in Christian music.

      Greg - We need to get you into to musical theater Mr. Classic Rock.

      Clyde - I've recently found a liking for country music. The Band Perry will be in concert here in a week or so.

      Ydnar2xer - I love every artist you mentioned. I went to a Bon Jovi concert a couple of years ago. He's puts on a great show!!

      Carm - Maybe I'll surprise you one day and will post a video...

      syed786 - I know I've heard Cat Stevens but right now I can't think of one of his songs.

      BoiseB - I love gospel music. Have you heard of Carmen? Would you consider his music Gospel? I grew up listening to him.

      derbygirl - I love Kid Rock!! Me and some friends saw him in concert a couple of summers ago. Lynard Skynard opened up for him. It was an awesome concert. This last summer I saw ZZ Top in concert. Scored some backstage passes too but their manager was being a jacka$$ and hand picked people to meet them. Guess I wasn't pretty enough.

      Fastdog - Like your husband, I love blues. Especially the old delta blues. Mississippi John Hurt, Josh White, Howling Wolf, Honeyboy Edwards. LOVE IT!! I read a book recently called "The World Don't Owe Me Nothing" the life and times of Honeyboy Edwards. He told a great story about growing up in the delta and playing the blues.

      Lirasgirl - I'm not familiar with EDM. You'll have to recommend an artist for me to check out.

      BuckeyeShelby - There is just something about Musical Theater. I love Andrew Lloyd Weber. Until I discover Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera was my favorite musical. I think I saw it 4 times.

      Thanks everyone for your comments.

      You Andrew Lloyd Webber fans, check out his "Requiem." Yeah, yeah, I know, it's a requiem. Trust me on this, the Hosanna will blow you away. Placido Domingo sings it on the original. The "Pie Jesu" will make you cry. You don't have to listen to the rest of it. I'm sure you can find a performance on You Tube so it's free.

      I love and listen to lots of music (mostly classical) but I get lost in French folk music. Don't know why (tho I do love the French language, and speak it quite well.) That's one of my hideouts.

      Usually, when I want to lose myself in music, I grab my headphones and turn on one of my Spotify playlists. Alternative rock is my fav but, when I'm feeling sentimental, I listen to some old Randy Travis and George Strait.

      As a pianist, I play just about anything from Bach, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Jimmy Hendrix, Theloneous Monk, Dave Brubeck, Keith Jarett to name a few. When I just feel like listening to it, I discovered a great set of music that helps our pets relax! It's out there on Youtube and available to purchase online. Search 'Music to Relax Dogs' for a nice calming set of music.
