Well, here goes, and I wasn't going to get involved! I have 2 CDs that I play incessantly when I'm driving. Good road therapy!
They are:
Classical Loon (Northsound)
Classical Loon II (Northsound)
For me they mix the music I love with the wild. Just a personal preference and if you haven't heard the different sounds of the loon interspersed with the music, don't knock it!

Nim.....just call me BingBongBoLo SpangWrangStrang for short.

At the risk of blatant name dropping,I worked with Matt Munro at the Villa Marina,in Douglas Isle Of Man in 1979 !!!

Have you heard the John Williams score to Catch Me If You Can?

Not the typical Spielbergian Bombastic Bash-up but a really sophisticated hip jazzy score.

Bonnnnnngggggggggggg.......

Goodness me Prongo, don't be so coy. Shoulders back, chest out.

My top listens this summer:

1. The Best of Tangerine Dream.
2. Coldplay X&Y - I love their music but fall out with them every time their lead singer is interviewed and I hear his shallow, pretentious, insincere viewpoint.
3. Black eyed Peas - Pump it up - Louder! etc.
4. Johnny Cash - All sorts. I love that guy, & that film.

Oh, and K, if you're reading; Rich Mullins is one of my all time favourite Christian artists! My two track choices; The colour Green and My Deliverer.

Now Dr.B, in this spirit of openness & love - Your own choices at your leisure.

Normuel....that is such a great improvement in your tone that I can only accept your flirtatious invitation.

Nimrod is correct.....a top five list is a bonkers idea to anyone with a love for music. So here are a few things that I'd wish to share with anyone unaware of the aural pleasures thus contained.....daddy-o.

Billy May was one of the great arrangers for Sinatra and Nat King Cole in the 50's,
That huge swinging juggernaut on Come Dance With Me and Come Fly With Me is down to him. He recorded his own albums for Capitol that featured not only his exciting and witty arrangements but the collossal talents of the studio musicians that frequented those Sinatra sessions.
"Naughty Operetta" and "Sorta May" are my two favourites.....

Talking of Sinatra....my (current) favourite album is Where Are You. WHAT......you're not familiar with it????? It's a collection of angst ridden ballads with sublime orchestral backing by Gordon Jenkins (he also worked with Nat Cole and arranged When I Fall In Love).
Sinatra was in the midst of his break up with Ava Gardner and his voice,already in it's prime,is infused with the emotion on grief.(Apparently,at the end of "I'm A Fool To Want You",he was so overcome that he left the studio before the band had finished the coda")
"The Night We Called It A Day" is as sweet and lovely as Doreen Whitehead's chocolate cake.(BTW....did you know that Doreen is a big fan of Vince Hill and Des O'Connor ??!!!).

Bach......The Art Of Fugue,Matthew Passion,Well Tempered Clavier.
As strong an article of Faith as was ever uttered by a human.

Keith Jarrett........Genesis with Peter Gabriel....John Coltrane.....Cannonball Adderley.....The Beatles......Randy Newman.....Martha Argerich......Prokoviev....Todd Rundgren....Gentle Giant.....Pet Sounds....Steely Dan.....Milton Nascimento.....Egberto Gismonti....
Elton John (in the early 70's)....The Blessed Zappa......Singers Unlimited.....

Mmmmm......I'm off to recharge the iPod

BB

ps.......Tangerine Dream,Leeds University 1975,just after the release of "Ricochet", was one of my earliest gigs,Normuel.

pps.......for those of you constantly seeking new musical introductions of an esoreic and left field nature,I recommend the Stuart Maconie show on sunday afternoon.

Outside the Spielberg camp,he did sterling work for JFK,Born on the Fourth of July,Harry Potter,Superman and of course the Stars Wars films. I think John Barry is over due for a knighthood,and I also believe John Williams should get an honorary knighthood like the bearded one.

I agree about John Barry being overdue the Knighthood,but hey......having been responsible for those Bond films (especially Goldfinger and On Her Majesties Secret Service), The Persuaders,The Ipcress File , Born Free ,being married to Jane Birkin AND a knighthood might be asking too much.
I just read a quote the othe day where he said "I would'nt know Robbie Williams if I fell over him"....!
You can take the man out of Yorkshire.....

.............AND I happen to know that he watches Big Brother.

BB....glued to BB.
