    In the other So, what are you listening to? thread, it seems most folks focus primarily on Christian music, which is quite appropriate in the forum. I do not intend for this to be an inappropriate thread, and if any member goes too far off topic, or crosses the line of decency, I kindly ask the moderator(s) to close this thread. I personally consider crossing the line to include posting names of bands or songs that are indecent, or linking to youtube videos that contain explicit content not suitable for the family-friendly nature of this board.

    Until that time, though, I'm curious what my fellow BB members listen to when not tuning in to the local Christian stations.

    I'm a big fan of piano music and I love the works of Ludovico Einaudi and Helen Jane Long. Long worked with Howard Shore on the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. Einaudi has been in the composing game for quite a while. His work is often heard as background music on BBC's Top Gear.

    Here's a sample of Einaudi's work:
    Nuvole Bianche = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdDDY5nVA3A
    Ancora = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdSMZTSRQNc
    Stella del mattino = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWKwQ2gBRc0
    Giorni Dispari = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56hDr0cha-s
    Al Di La del Vetro = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LxceNTx3S0

    Here's a sample of Helen Jane Long's work:
    Procelain (full album) = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfNhZwyQQEk
    The Aviators (extended edition) = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At_BIbaLhcU

    I listened to the first one - excellent! But I am a pianist - so I am partial.

    Speaking of great piano performances, here is Maksim Mrvica playing "Flight of the Bumblebee" (Rachmaninoff version).

    It's WILDLY bad - and by bad, I mean epically awesome!! [​IMG]

    I listen to it quite frequently to temper any pride I might cultivate in myself as a pianist. HA!!!!!!!!!!

    Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah [LINK]

    Now I've heard there was a secret chord
    That David played, and it pleased the Lord
    But you don't really care for music, do you?
    It goes like this
    The fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall, the major lift
    The baffled king composing Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    You saw her bathing on the roof
    Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
    She tied you to a kitchen chair
    She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    You say I took the name in vain
    I don't even know the name
    But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
    There's a blaze of light
    In every word
    It doesn't matter which you heard
    The holy or the broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    I did my best, it wasn't much
    I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
    I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
    And even though it all went wrong
    I'll stand before the Lord of Song
    With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
