We all do it, tapping away on our keyboards while listening to our favourite music. So what are you listening to right now? If possible, please leave a link to YouTube so that other members can listen too.

Well, I was listening to my favourite Vivaldi while I was cooking. I call it the 'kitchen sink' concerto, because it has so many different instruments. When I looked for the YouTube video to put up, I was intrigued to see that the solo violins have what looks like tin foil scrunched up over the bridge of their instruments. I didn't know it had been invented in Vivaldi's time!:D

I’ve been listening to the Hot Club de Paris from the 1930s. Super cool jazz/ swing with the peerless Django Reinhardt on guitar and Stephane Grapelli on violin exchanging phrases. Dazzling virtuosity. Not, needless to say, the YouTube generation.

Funnily enough, earlier I was listening to Django Django, who are.

Matt, you and I obviously have very similar musical tastes! Was listening to that yesterday and ‘Wish you were here.’
Love Floyd! :)

Yes, I do like Pink Floyd, was listening to 'wish you were here' as well. Thinking of my Dad. :(

Normally, we have the media player on random play (except on Friday and Sunday evenings).

Although in the car I've got one of my birthday presents currently loaded - Better Nature by Silversun Pickups [

Stevie Nicks - The Wild Heart


(Recorded from cassette…what? to my computer years ago and transferred to my Brennan 'Jukebox')

I've been listening to Black Water County a lot lately. They are from the West Country (Wimbourne) and we got to know them from going to Dorset Steam Fair.

I can't listen to music and do something else. I'm a subscriber to the "Silence isn't a void that has to be filled," philosophy. I enjoy silence. I also like music very much though when I do want to listen to it, I want to listen to the music preferably at decent volume and with no other distractions.
My YouTube choice : ;)

Having lived in that area for a few years, I'm not sure if I would describe Wimborne as being the west country. There is a definite lack of "Me luvr's" that you tend to find in Devon and Cornwall :D
