For those of you who work, what kind of music does your place of employment play? Assuming you work plays music. I swear, whoever makes the setlist for my work loves ’80s new wave stuff, I hear Tom Petty’s I Wont Back Down, Elvis Costello’s Radio Radio, The Cure’s Lovesong and that Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun every day.

On my first day the boss told me that they never play rock music. Which is annoying because the music I listen to is all some type of rock. But they play a range of different stuff and some of it isn’t that bad. I work at a picture framers.

I work in a kitchen, cooking, and have only one other employee with me, (the dishwasher), so I get total control over the music played.When I’m not listening to Howard Stern shows

I think you should use the can can if you can request it as it is perfect for use. Otherwise, go with your easiest option, what ever feels natural, when I play the piano I have to play songs I like or I can’t get into it and no effort is put in.
Dream a Little Dream of Me – Michael Buble orSamson – Regina Spektor
God Only Knows by the Beach Boys would be absolutely beautiful/memorable. If not that, Samson by Regina Spektor would also be good 🙂

Ok everyone! Lately there have been soooo many posts regarding,”i need a song for my solo” or “What music should I use for a kids jazz class?”. I made this thread in order to help those that need a song!! Feel free to add on

Anyone Know Any Good Tunes Worth Downloading? I’m Sick and tired of everything on the radio . and i’m kinda bored of all the artists i have. I mean I Love Elvis Costello but i wanna hear Some New Tunes. Does anyone Know of any Relatively unknown Musicians/Bands worth Listening to?
I don’t known if they’re relatively unknown, but Evanescence are good! Given that they’re on Daredevil and Doctor Who, I guess they’re not unknown. I like Bring Me To Life (Rock/Metal) and My Immortal (Soft Metal).
Tony Lucca is awesome, so is Ray LaMontagne and Iron and Wine.
I’m not very familiar with your artists so I’ll recommend this to you.pandora.com Type in the name/artist of your favorite song and it will create a customized radio station with the songs that you might like.

The oldest one I’ve seen was Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool. It showed the band hanging out and driving away at the end. It was made in 1971.youtube.com/watch?v=oQfAZVsz6KM

In a sense you could go back to some of the Elvis movies, which were made with the intention of getting people to buy his albums, the Beatles made some promotional videos for individual songs (as well as full length movies) that they made so they could send it to various music shows around the world and not have to appear for them to either perform or lip-sync. Many other bands followed suit, such as the Stones, the Doors and others.

The concept for music videos was born in the 60’s and 70’s on a show called The Midnight Special. They had singers do outrageous things on stage to ‘illustrate’ their songs. Technically Alice Cooper did the very first ‘music video’ on that show with the song Only Women Bleed.
