I lived with my grandmother for a time in the 60's and found myself quite taken with a radio programme she used to listen to called 'sing something simple' (anyone else remember that?). I think it may have been broadcast on a Saturday or a Sunday evening and I remember sitting drinking cocoa and singing along to the songs. We also used to watch the Sunday film together, which always seemed to be a musical. I find myself getting slightly nostalgic for songs that are plain 'old fashioned'.
TriciaF I'd never heard of Klezmer music before (I love all the 'incidental' things I discover through Gransnet ) so I had a listen to the Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra on youtube and I really liked it. Thanks.
What I listen too depends on my mood. I love Motown and groups (weren't called bands then ) from 70's. I like show tunes, some orchestral stuff but I don't like jazz at least not the Cleo Lane (sp) type.
I know I'm getting old when I can't stand to listen to much of what passes for music these days. I was brought up listening to the songs of musicals - and the songs were, well....musical and they often told a story. My friend has a very talented daughter and every now and again I check out her latest song on youtube and recently I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ6vFyVPc9s I love it. What do you think?
