Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have just bought one, ( yes,yes I know I am a bit slow) done the whole thing with itunes.So far,so good.I have even put some of my cd's on to it.
    Now,I need your help.I want to broaden my musical knowledge.
    Please remember I am 48,and although my taste in music is quite catholic,I don't really want all that banging the head stuff,don't want any rap,don't want anything too shouty!.I do quite like some of the Chillout stuff that itunes has........
    So any sensible suggestions?

    Vivaldi .. lift music, but soothing.
    Gregorian Chant ... magnificent.
    Brahms a bit heavy ... a bit of Haydn?

    Anything by Steeleye Span, of course. Most uplifting.

    And, as a one-off, "America" [from West Side Story, but, like, different] by "The Nice" to wake you up.

    Enjoy! 8)

    Why is it that people these days can't function without being wired for music [or what passes for it?].

    Does anyone read books, or converse with fellow human beings?

    Perhaps not

  8. hmmmm.....just looked along the CD rack.....how about Runrig, Peatbog Faeries, Mary Balck, Katie Melua, Norah Jones, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, James Taylor, Neil Diamond, Deacon Blue, Van Morrison, Jethro Tull, Sandhi Thom (her first album), KT Tunstall, Capercaellie, Oysterband, Kate Rusby, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Barclay James Harvest, Alan Parson Project, Josh Groban, Thelonious Monk (After Midnight), Primal Scream (Riot City Blues), Bach Mass in B Minor, George Harrison (All Things Must Pass)....

    ....and breathe....I'll go away and lie down in a dark room now...:)
  9. What about those who read, listen to music and converse with other fellow human beings? I can do all three, at the same time, without any trouble what-so-ever :p

    Clever cnut.

    Inept at all 3, I'd guess :wink:
  11. Possibly some mid-life music such as Dire Straits, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Chris Rea, AC/DC, Allman Brothers, Beatles, Floyd, Rolling Stones, Ian Dury, The Who, Genesis, Ocean Colour Scene, Jethro Tull, etc?

    But paying iTunes for stuff that is freely available on MP3? Hell would freeze over before that happened in my household
  12. I have only just got the ipod,mainly because of the lack of conversation! Have you been on a train/tube lately? No one wants to talk,God forbid you make eye contact.Try to talk to someone?,they give you a pitying look like your some nutter and dive back into the Daily Scum paper.

    As for some of your suggestions,I will look at them more closely.Thanks for your help.
  13. Municipal Waste, Motorhead, and some Black Label Society'll see you reet.
