    Hey Jim –

    That’s a very um… “interesting” mix… just as “interesting” as mine. Here’s my SEO List (the Music I jam to while working):


    Sorry for the link… just figured it was easier to point to my list, rather than posting the names and bands of 75 songs.

    hard to resist a music post. barry is too easy of a target so i will leave it alone.

    bob dylan, zep, black sabbath, stones, floyd, neil young, soundgarden, steve earle, travis tritt, stevie ray, etta james, johnny winter, son volt, elvis costello, willie, lucinda williams, jayhawks…

    am oddly attracted to any bagpipe music. guess that ‘s what growing up next to macalester college will do to you.

    like your tull and simon & garfunkel picks. never liked the beatles, lennon fine but paul & ringo are geeks. never understood the whole kiss thing…

    thanks for sharing, your cat posts come through big. nice suggestion at lee’s blog:)

    I got way too many of those jokes, excuse me while I go curl up in the corner and cry …

    that’s a pretty hesher-ific list.

    while most of my band tshirts say metallica or iron maiden, guilty pleasures include:

    hall and oates
    air supply
    steely dan

    yeah, barry’s got some good stuff too.

    I’ve been a HUGE fan since his early recordings with the accordian made in the college restroom for it’s “accoustics” played on Dr. D and have all the CD’s 😉

    If you go to his site you can also find links to download a song that WON’T be on the new album called “YOU’RE PITIFUL!” or see the new video “Don’t Download This Song”.


    FWIW, I’ll reserve judgement until I hear the new album but Poodle Hat was his best ever, pure genius. The song Bob spoofing good only mumble bum Bob Dylan was nothing but palindromes and one of the single most clever songs I think I’ve ever heard.


    Then again, my wife listened to Poodle Hat and concluded I was a genius in France LMAO!

    I like a lot of different kinds of music. In the past I mostly like the Jam Bands like the Grateful Dead, Phish, Widespread Panic, Dave Mathews Band, etc, and a lot of the usual classic rock from the 70’s but I’m starting to listen to a lot more Hawaiian Music lately.

    Jake Shimabukuro is one of my favorites. The Jake is a Ukulele virtuoso! Check out the video, the guy is truly amazing.

    I also like Hawaiian Exotica Music. This is the cheesy, exotic sounding, Hawaiian Lounge Music that was created in the late fifties. Instead of Ukuleles and steal guitars, they used marimbas pianos, organs, flutes and lots of percussion to create an over-the-top tropical jazz sound.

    My favorite Hawaiian Exotica Group is Don Tiki. Check out the GREAT videos on the website. http://www.dontiki.com/tv.html

    The other kind of Hawaiian music I like is a form of local guitar called “Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar” which is truly one of the great acoustic guitar traditions in the world. It’s a finger picked Guitar style where they play both the bass and melody at the same time.

    Paul Togioka is one of my favorites. You can listen to music samples here.

    It’s almost impossible to be in a bad mood when you listen to this type of Hawaiian Music. Enjoy!

    Bob Dylan, Interpol, Jack Johnson, Neil Young, Pixies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Shins, Sigur Ros, The Strokes, Unpoc, The White Stripes.

    Strange to see this “alternative” post in this serious blog. But interesting! 🙂

    where is it possible to get music of the eightieth?

    Cool post as always Jim, funny coincidence, I passed by Troy on my way to Syracuse the weekend before last, going to the New York State Fair to see Ween and the Flaming Lips, two of my favorite bands. It was a great time, Flaming Lips are definitely something to check out, they have a really positive vibe which a lot of newer music doesn’t have.

    Other than that, I love the Dead, got to see them in Albany in 95, a few months before Jerry died. When I’m doing SEO I usually listen to Black Flag, Rachmaninoff, Garcia and Grisman, Funkadelic, MC Chris, Johnny Thunders, blah blah, the list goes on and on and on and on 🙂
