What are you listening now?

Talk about music - songs/albums that you love, and the ones that you don't.

See one of the best gig of my life, it's makes me forgot for one night the horror in Paris.
Just the coolest musician i ever seen.

Aw glad you're doing well ElTouffe!
I like the 2nd one best!

heard this on my Sirius -another Taana Gardner tune! Don't know who she is but she's a Disco Queen!

I love this tune. Reminds me of Duffy, who sounds just like this!

am I the only person who doesn't like the new Adele song "Hello"?
it's way too dramatic, almost a spoof, too slow.

yawn

Alicia Keys is one of the greatest musicians of my day. She's the female equivalent to Stevie Wonder.
She has soul. That performance is so real, chills.

John Legend is good too.

What’s in a good song?
chorus..Verses.. Vocals..Lyrics.. Instruments..
the Key signature, time signature, the feel of the song, the genre..
what makes a song good? I don’t know.
A song is a piece of art. .and the writer, the artist.
but a good song is a good song and is subjective to the listener.

Stevie's Christmas song recorded 1967 in Motown

Interesting - I have not given Adele a proper go but I agree with you Giba. In general, I find her music/voice dreary in a over-powerful way, that does not let up.

I guess I must belong to 1% :-) of the population because everyone else seems to love her new album. I never have been a fan (but I have not really listened to her music either so I am not in a real position to critique it.)

I do like Adele and her voice. and I'm told she's got a Cockney accent and swears a lot!
I hate to cut artists down, but you need more substance to a song, not just a chorus :P

well actually a great chorus is enough, I guess! and a little hype.
I think her dates in September are sold out here.

and listening to Jami in Guildford! :mrgreen:
I remember that day vividly! What a great performance!
Crazy I traveled that far for a concert, but well worth it!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, or Holiday, & Happy New Year!

So sad David Bowie is gone! it's all over the media, which really is an honor to him. :)

but he was a legend even before this tune, but the MTV kids got to know him here.

ah, so John Thirkell, trumpet player on Emergency on Planet Earth, & Return of the Space Cowboy, also played trumpet on Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk". (Also Zender had played with Ronson).
But I'll bet Ronson's a huge Jamiroquai fan :D

And, Malcolm Strachan's still fabulous, and hope he's featured on the new Jami stuff!

But James Brown's "Payback" came on tonight, and it hit me -Ronson & Mystikal's "Feel Right".
Ah so James Brown influenced!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IST6qRfVqwY 6:43
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdtVV7q-_BE 0:41

also Ronson's rhythm? guitar sounds influenced by the Payback. no?
