My favorite era in music?

AFTER they drafted Elvis into the Army, and BEFORE the Beatles.

Listening now to the greatest Christmas album ever. ( in my opinion )

It was released on November 22, 1963 - does that date sound familiar?

My mother bought it and played it at Christmas for years.

"A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pVon5xDARc

Phil gives Christmas his Wall of Sound treatment.

Oscar Levant and Phil Spector were two of my greatest heroes in music. They both went on to prove that there is indeed a very fine line between genius and insanity. I'm not a psychiatrist, but I think they both crossed that line.

Creepy Phil even gives a creepy little Christmas speech at the end.

It just seemed like a great few years to me. North America had survived the Cuban Missile Crisis. That must have been a good feeling. JFK was in office most of those years. There seemed to be no better time to look good, kick ***, and get laid.

There's been a lot of good music before, and since. I just believe those few short years were the high water mark in music. Before the civil unrest in the cities and Draft protests. Drugs. Crime. Terrorism.

Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

Nate Diaz high lights 2016 - I'm a soldier


     I know that this is a music thread, but Nate Diaz surprises the hell out of me when I think he is going to lose. Wanted him to win against Cerrone, thought he was going to get killed before the fight, and he puts on a striking clinic. Against Conor ( first fight), thought he would be put away in a round, and he finishes in the 2nd. That fight, I have never been more glued to a television screen and celebrated so emphatically afterwards. Just awesome.

I'll probably get a little flak for this but..
Ed Sheeran Galway Girl is just too catchy for me not to imagine that was actually me going on a pub crawl with Saoirse Ronan.

Thanks for the link, great group, great sound.  :nod:

Saw them in concert last fall with a new album - no bad songs on it.

Hey! Me too! Me too!
The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools. ...

The true measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out...

Sometimes nostalgia is frightening. Did I really listen to that in the day?
