theblue1 Posted December 2, 2004 Share Posted December 2, 2004 I haul my sorry, antedeluvian backside out of the rack and, though I haven't had a drink in almost 11 years most days I have what feels like more than a hint of a perennial hangover. What I want is music. And I have access to a huge (if not complete) online library in the form of MusicMatch's On Demand service. But danged if I can think of what to play most days. I want something that won't necessarily intrude too much on my thoughts, that doesn't have many sharp edges to cut my swollen brain on, but that isn't just insipid background music. MMOD's biggest sector of failure is classical music... otherwise, I'd know right what to play. But finding classical pieces means trying to search on the artist as a rule. And their classical selection is way spotty. They have a bunch of Kronos and some Yo Yo Ma (mostly his 'pop'/new agey stuff). So, as it is, I often find myself playing Pentangle or the Chieftans, but even that's sometimes problematic. The last thing I want to hear first thing in the morning is Mick Jagger with the Chieftans doing Long Black Veil. (Love Mick, love the Chiefies, love the song... so why does it come off so bad? Anyhow...) OK... Any suggestsions for early morning music? PS... I'm listening to Lisa Gerrard, now, so I'm already hip to the Dead Can Dance angle (though I'm pretty burned on DCD, since my favorite coffee hangout played them into the ground and back out the other side back in the day). bookmark these: news.google.com | m-w dictionary | wikipedia encyclopedia | Columbia Encyclopedia TK Major / one blue nine | myspace.com/onebluenine Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
