Best Skiing Music - Page 3

post #61 of 155
Interesting thread. Musical taste info certainly gives you more of a "picture" of people's personalities. I'm also surprised at all of the new posters here at Epic.

So here's my partial list (in no particular order):
Adam & The Ants
B-52s (only the first few albums before they "popped" out)
Black Flag
Blur
Buzzcocks
Cake
Dead Kennedys
Depeche Mode
Electronic
New Order
Nine Inch Nails
Ozzy Osbourne (only the Randy Rhoads stuff, 1st 2 albums)
Primus
Prodigy
Public Image Ltd
The Clash
The Jam
The Police (only the first few albums before they "popped" out)
The Sex Pistols
The Smiths
UK Subs
Weezer

I'd like to say that a lot of people here listen to some wierd music. As I said before, my favorite song to listen to skiing is Locomotive Breath by Jethro Tull. Other than that I'll listen to anything by

The Stones
Zeppelin
Bad Company
The Who
Creedence Clearwater Revival
The Doors
ZZ Top
and did I mention Locomotive Breath? (if you dont know it check it out and you'll see what I mean)

As for some of the other suggestions here, I don't know if I could listen to Coldplay or Taking Back Sunday for more than 2 seconds without puncturing my own eardrums

The Jam
..
Yea!! It is so rare to find a fan of The Jam around. Most people are like "the who?" and I have to say, "no, that was earlier.." I have every Paul Weller album even though I gather that some people think he has gone soft..

LMAO! What surprises me is that so many people listen to the *same* weird music. Never been a fan of "hippy jam" type music, but based on the info here I will definetly have to check out that archives.org site and try to enlarge my musical horizons.

I play a lot of his stuff on guitar too. I'm a big fan of The Style Council too (Weller's follow-up band), but it's not in my skiing music rotation - I need high energy stuff to keep rippin' it up. Can you tell my "formative" years were in the '80s?

So Birdman, are you a dyed in the wool Tull fan, or do you just like that one song that gets a lot of air play? I can listen to Tull for hours, actually, I did just yesterday: Minstral In The Gallery, Aqualung, Benefit, Thick As A Brick and Crest Of A Knave, I think. I have others too, but it's nothing like the collection I used to have on vinyl. Hmmm. I think I'll do some shopping.

Thanks Birdman, you made me think of the horrible holes in my Tull collection, so I set about fixing the situation, by ordering: Stand Up; Heavy Horses; Stormwatch; and War Child. I feel much better now. :

Noodler nice list. Just looked at the bands on my hard drive:

[spunge]
A
Bouncing Souls
Dropkick Murphys
Flogging Molly
Goldfinger
Less Than Jake
Levellers
New Model Army
NOFX
Reel Big Fish
System of a Down
Terrorvision
Wildhearts

I could listen to any on the slopes. Strangely not much older stuff - must get ripping.:

I remember the song I used to like to listen to as I 4-wheel drifted around the icy turns to the ski hill on snow days when my highschool was closed. It was "slip-sliding away".

Count me in...and the Style Council stuff was great and a natural progression from the soul stuff Weller was trying to get going with the Jam, "Town Called Malice," "Bitterest Pill," etc.

Ever since you mentioned it, jstraw, it's going to be my skiing song too.

I also like Wild Blue Yonder by John Hiatt.

They were most certainly a jam band, they most certainly had their shit together like the Allman Brothers, and the argument can be made that Phish was "technically" (in a musical sense) more talented than the Allman Brothers, with the caveat that their technical prowess had nothing to do with the quality and/or desireability of the music they made.
Hear, here. Chops are just chops. Phish bores the crap outta me. I won't debate Trey vs. Warren. I already know which one I need to listen to.

It is listening to this stuff and Pete Townshend acoustic that makes me wish I had learned to play.

Jerry Garcia? He was around long before those bands.

Tell me something I don't know.

I was 18 in 1984 and started listening to GD in 1983.

Warren Haynes, one of the two guitar players in the Allman's.

Other is Derek Trucks, arguably the best guitar player alive imho

I recently downloaded the last Grateful Dead show, 7-9-95 Soldier Field. Is Warren the singer on Unbroken Chain and Brokedown Palace? I'm glad they were able to get the band back together. Warren is filling in for Duanne and Jerry!? Wow!

But I block out all music when I am skiing, it is fine for listening on the single chair though.

Dickie got his a$$ *fired* some years back. They said it was because he wasn't holding his end up. Funny, the later released a live album from the last tour he was on. Personally I think it's because Dickie is a jerk...a gifted guy, but a real jerk...one too many drunken episodes, domestic violence beefs, I dunno. It was tolerated by Gregg for all the years *HE* was too drunk to run the band...but then he sobered up and was able to assume the responsibility and there was no need to put up with Dickie anymore. That's just my gut instinct.

Warren ain't fillin' in for ANYONE. He's all Warren. Other than instrumentals, no Dickie songs are in the ABB repertoire anymore.

In The Dead (probably no more since Bobby and Phil have given up trying to get along), Garcia's vocals are spread around, Phil, Bobby (for a while Rob Barraco and Joan Osborne) and Warren all sang some and others, no one sang.

OHHH, yeah.

I have no idea who "Jessica" was to Dickie Betts, daughter, sister, lover, mother...dunno...but it's written for someone he felt VERY good about. I think it's just about as joyous a piece of music as has ever been composed.

I can't make it to the piano break without misting up. I play it LOUD in the car.

If anyone can remember when they first started listening to the DEAD...then they -obvioulsy- did not go to enough shows........
