Happy 74th birthday to David Bowie:



This week is also the 5th anniversary of his death. I was in Los Angeles in February 2016 and visited his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which his fans had lovingly decorated for Valentine's Day:

I don't know if I could live without the music of Charles Mingus. I certainly wouldn't want to try:

I don't discover a lot of new music, as I mostly listen to dad rock and 70's prog (shoutout to all the dads out there), but I've been pretty obsessed with a new band who put out their first album this year called "the first glass beach album". It's a really interesting mix of MCR-style 00's emo and more recent AltJ-style folktronica. Really fun record.
I also thought 9patrickmurphy was at least 60 years old. What's up with that avitar?

New music in 2020?

Let's tie this in to the "when are you old" thread.

If you thought the south park clip was funny, then you are old. If you didn't think it was funny, you are really old. If you just thought it was pointless and stupid, you are not old yet.

^ But what if we think that this episode deserves Nobel Prize, does that mean that we are just the right age? And Margaritaville deserves it too. And Over Logging most likely, but John Steinbeck would have complained that it is too derivative.

But I digress, this thread is about music:

This is amazing. I'll keep up the facade to play along (and not remind anyone that my age is listed on my profile).

Dude has so many great classics. I said it. Actually heard a sweet interview with him the other day and was spurred on to watch the movie. Pretty enjoyable overall I thought.


Good call on the Bowie tribute above and nice jazz additions there Carpe.

I thought the movie was OK, cool blend of "musical", history, and use of the music. Didn't realize Pinball Wizard was an Elton John song... learn something every day!
I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

Sarcasm or not, it's not even funny to post something like this. Not at this time. Reported.

Pinball Wizard was written by Pete Townsend and was on The Who’s Tommy album (1969). Elton John performed the song in the Tommy movie release.

The best Elton John....
