I've been on a bit of a remix kick lately, and Postmodern Jukebox is pretty good.  They remix current (and not so current) songs in various forms from Big Band to Motown to everything in between.

Philip II of Macedon to Spartans (346 BC):  "You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city."

What are you listening to/fav type of music 

For me, after Elvis got drafted, and before the so called "British Invasion".

This musical era has traditionally been perceived as the decline of rock and roll.

( Elvis drafted. The death of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. The retirement of Little Richard. Prosecutions of Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry. The payola scandal. )

American Grafitti: "Rock and roll's been going down hill ever since Buddy Holly died."

But, some of my favorite music came out of this period. Maybe because I connect it with early childhood memories.

Doo wop. The rise of the girl groups. Phil Spector and his "Wall of Sound". The "Brill Building sound." Surf music.

Such as, "Footsteps" by Steve Lawrence.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZJbH0c0qYY

Walkin' away from me.
Why did ya say goodbye?
Why did ya make me cry?
Now ev'ry day I wonder
Why, why, a-why, why, why, why?
Footsteps, Footsteps, Footsteps, Footsteps, Footsteps.

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.

I've been enjoying a lot of the new talent coming up through the Canadian Indie-Folk scene: a band from Toronto named Wild Rivers has some good stuff (Heart Attack) : https://youtu.be/n3MPasiToGw

And something I listen to at work when I have the chance: WOGN (Waves of good noise)- a youtube channel of great new music. www.youtube.com/waveofgoodnoise
Basically, still living. I've got everything I need, and nothing that I don't.

A bit unusual, I know.  Not very mainstream.  And the music video is like 10 minutes long.  Listen to it in the background from time to time, always enjoyed the video & song  =)

Maroon 5 hooks all so bland and yet stuck in my subconscious I start humming along 30 seconds before I even recognize what song it's supposed to be.

Makes the Highland 110/min look like a sprint to the mess hall.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

This company must have finished PT as no one had their pants bloused as I had seen in other French Army videos. Another thing that stood out was the liberal tatoo policy. One soldier had one above the color which would be a no no in the US.
