|Andrews Sisters - Bei Mir Bist Du Schön|
(Mar 11, 2004 - 04:52)
|Excellent Choice! The Andrews Sisters (and, actually, Zarah Leander, who originally performed this song) are almost the only non-rock records in my collection.|
|Pink Floyd - Sheep|
(Mar 10, 2004 - 05:50)
|Thanks a lot for playing this song! The best cut on an outstanding album, much better than the over-hyped "The Wall".|
|Dire Straits - Money For Nothing|
(Mar 05, 2004 - 01:33)
|Oh no, I can't hear this song. It has been played to death on commercial radio. I still like to hear the first two Dire Straits albums, but this song is not what I expect to hear on Radio Paradise. Back to my own MP3s...|
|Starsailor - Tie Up My Hands|
(Mar 01, 2004 - 05:34)
|This is the first time Starsailor catches my attention. Nice song. I don't know why you guys complain about the vocals, but hey, if David Surkamp of Pavlov's dog still has the voice he used to have, he would be perfect for singing this song.|
|Camel - Rhayader|
(Feb 26, 2004 - 02:33)
|Ah! The Snow Goose- brings back good memories from high school days! Thanks!|
|Strawbs - Witchwood|
(Feb 13, 2004 - 05:12)
|thanks, it was great to hear the Strawbs again! One of the rather underestimated band from the 70s. Their "Hero and Heroine" is one of my all-time favourites, but I haven't played it in years (the lp player rests in the cellar).
Let's hear more of the less known 70s bands - how about some Pavlov's Dog?
|Midnight Oil - Dreamworld|
(Feb 05, 2004 - 09:24)
|ahh... good memories! Play Midnight Oil to anyone who claims hit music of the 80s was just crap!|
|Adiemus/Karl Jenkins - Adiemus|

I was thinking the same thing. I've heard this too many times on Delta before the plane takes off. While it might be a good song on its own, it now has a connotation of business travel to me. Blech.
Well, it all started with a commercial for Delta:
All Music Guide wrote:
The concept originated as a piece Jenkins penned for Delta Airlines television commercial, its fusion of ethnic vocals and orchestral backing proving so popular with consumers that a full-length Adiemus album,
Anyway, compared to some of the New Age Muzak, this isn't bad. But why not play something less commercial? E.g. the german group Popul Vuh, who has a long history of creating some of the most intelligent music in the "new age" direction.
Play something from Popul Vuh's "Tantric Songs" - it's beautiful!
|Vivaldi - The 4 Seasons: Summer|
(Feb 04, 2004 - 04:32)
|I like the idea of a cllassical piece every now and then, but Vivaldi's 4 Seasons is KITCH, the #1 MOR piece of the music history :-(|
|Radiohead - Sail To The Moon|
(Feb 03, 2004 - 03:27)
If you like this you will probably like the band LOW or Mazzy Star.
Although I don't think it's bad, I was surprisingly (to myself) quickly bored of "Hail to the thief". Since you mentioned Mazzy Star: "So Tonight That I Might See" is now more than 10 years old. And still not boring...
|Eels - I Like Birds|
(Feb 03, 2004 - 03:15)
|This song is my personal Eels favourite - I just love those lyrics! It was frequently played during their recent tour - in a hard-hitting, almost punk, version. Great fun!|
