I listen to Black Metal, and Black Metal only. So I'll refrain from posting my fav song...  ;D

I looked Black Metal up cuz I had no idea what it was. But Seul, some of my colleagues love that music too. I'm not into it -- too dark and depressing. But whatever floats your boat man !

My list would go on forever, but to name a few: Echoes by Pink Floyd, Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin, Highway Star/Strange Kind of Woman by Deep Purple....

Lol, Shub, when i saw your vid (dancing at work) I would have never thought that you like Led Zeppelin. :D

Shoque, Madonna is my role model and I love her 80s music (everything else since then has sucked).  But I'm an old time rock n' roll girl myself. I love just about everything by The Stones and Zep. I attended the "Tattoo You" Rolling Stones concert at Cleveland Colosseum in the early 80s...as a high-schooler ! "Some Girls" and "Tattoo You" are my all time favorite records -- I can listen to them a million times over and never get bored. Another one of my favorite Stones songs : "Tops", from "Tattoo You". Here it is :

I reckon that this is difference between older and contemporary music (well, a lot of it). Today's bands just don't do it for me. They are either repetitive or simply not interesting at all cause their sound is boring. Of course there are exceptions (I like Muse for instance).

I like the Rolling Stones a lot, I'm not a hardcore fan (yet) though. It's great to have a member aboard who appreciates that kind of music. :)

I'll go with the Melvins album Bullhead in it's entirety as an all-time favorite, or most significant.

More recently: for 2009 "If there is something" by Roxy Music, "Reunited" by Fan Death, and the Siouxsie and the Banshees album JuJu.

Oooh, extremely hard question. I love so much in music and it spans almost the whole bandwidth of what's out there. There is actually hardly anything I don't like but I just don't listen to it. There is relatively little "white" music that turns me on in the last decade and even in the 90s. Some soul is good. Otherwise it's 80s and earlier for me.

A perennial favorite that never fails to move me is Kramat by Abdullah Ibrahim a.k.a Dollar Brand, a South African jazz master discovered and mentored by Duke Ellington. His "Water from an Ancient Well" and "The Wedding" are similarly good.

Here is the "wedding":


Brand plays the piano. He does play Sax, too, but is really a Piano player and someone else plays the Sax here. Possibly Carlos Ward or Gato Barbieri.

Here is Water from an Ancient Well with Carlos Ward:


I saw him live in Ulm, Germany in a very small venue, at Sweet Basile's in NY, at the Jazz Festival in Lugano and in Paris for the Jazz Festival at La Villette.

Here you have him in 2008 at the Jazz Festival of Vienna at the National Opera (nice venue indeed), solo piano and some sound bites:


Enjoy!

Found Kramat. This is not the original version from the Zimbabwe album. I have that one. The original is a tad shorter (6 minutes) and has less flourish but more beat; it is also studio only, no audience. The flute is still prominent though in the original.

Kramat is a burial shrine for a muslim saint. I didn't know that until I just tried to find the song. A most joyful funeral song. My mother must have felt that when she asked me to play that at her funeral (not dead, no worries).
