On Exploration, Michio Kaku interviewed Oliver Sacks, who is a neurologist and has written a book, Musicophilia.

In the interview, he talked about how important music is to some people, while other people it is nothing but unintelligible noise, and still others love music but have no ear for music and are tone-deaf, yet sing loudly off key.

There is a case in which a man was struck by lightening and suddenly awakened with a great interest in music which he turned his life interest toward.

Some people have perfect pitch, which is rare in our culture yet not in others, and blind people it is very common.

Pretty interesting. Explains why some people's definition of music differs.


ps - Just wanted to add that this made me think of something that US Grant said, which was: "I only recognize two tunes. One of them is Dixie. The other one isn't."

Chesterfield woman turns 109, attributes music to longevity
.........Ruth’s passion has always been playing the piano. She started lessons when she was 8-years-old. Not only was the piano a source of entertainment for her family, but it also became her job. When Ruth graduated high school at the age of 18, she went to work playing piano for the 'Missouri Rockets' in 1926. Those Rockets eventually moved to New York City and became the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes.

She then played for a dance studio and at the Fox Theater in St. Louis and was also was a member of a small band that traveled throughout the St. Louis area performing. Ruth still plays today. In fact, she attributes having music in her life to giving her longevity..........

I watched the movie for probably the sixth or seventh time the other night. Ever since I saw it for the first time I've wanted Saoirse Ronan to beat the shit outta me. I'll pay her.

Lyrics
It seems as clear as yesterday
We saw it in a dream
But dream became insanity
An awful gaping scream
So sad to see such emptiness
So sad to see such tears
And heaped up leaves of bitterness
Turned mouldy down the years
Nothing but the truth
Common words in use
Hard to find excuse
Harder than the truth
Like Icarus we flew too high
We flew too near the sun
They caught us in that awful glare
Our hapless throats were strung
But just before the final stroke
They took us victims of the rope
And cast us far beyond the deep
To lie in never ending sleep
It seems as clear as yesterday
They cast us in the deep
We lie in darkest night for good
Never ending sleep
A never ending bitter gloom
Whose darkness seldom clears
A God forsaken emptiness
Which fills our hearts with tears
Songwriters: Gary Brooker / Keith Reid

I like many genre of music. Lately, I've been listening to a lot of "Americana" and Rockabilly. Big doses of "Doom Metal", as well. (Not to be confused with "Death Metal"...).

What is "Doom Metal"? Maybe you could give an example of it to listen to.

I listen to a variety of music and different influences. My previous post was definitely rock. PH has a lot of classical leaning.

Popular music is generational. I am from the Beatles generation, before New Wave, and Punk Rock.

wonder what would have happened if Randy Rhoads had lived, what the next 3 or 4 albums would have been like, the different colaborations and projects

Mannnnn, that guy could play. Like none other in all of electric guitar history, I think.
