country and western is infinitely more depressing than the blues - and I love some of that Too.

as a utd supporter i would agree that watching us this year is depressing, and seeing city win only furthers my misery :(

Interesting?...I Googled 'blues fans' out of idle curiosity and discovered that it pulled up several links to thesis research done by S. Stack on 'blues fans and suicide acceptability'...

I often get a bit depressed when watching Man United play - but generally I usually enjoy watching Man City? ;o>

HNY CD. BTW i am not one of the 'no' button pushers. The 'there is only good music and bad music' statement is wrong. There is also the 'indifferent' or 'mediocre'which probably accounts for most music. Anyway surely a musician is someone who makes music even if they're just using a wobble board and kazoo. Someone who plays a hurdy gurdy etc is an 'instrumentalist'. Just a bit of random pedantry to welcome MF into the new year :0)

As for the Blues...huge mega yawn here esp the stuff made by the likes of Clapton, SR Vaughan, Bonamassa etc. Not much into the music of old blind dudes from the Delta either. To my ears one Blues song is like any other.

Yes, I just thought it's not quite as descriptive of genres, but it is a while since I read it ;-)

Aaron Copland - What to Listen For in Music is also a great introduction but mostly classical.

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Jan 2014 22:56:16 GMT
Yes, I was trying to remember Daniels book, Lez, it is superb. Very relevant I would have thought!

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Jan 2014 22:55:32 GMT
That would be his track called "Williams Mix" described to a tee, Sparky ;-)

Sparky says:
Been thinking myself - a mixture of noise interspersed with no noise, though both components are not necessarily present (to accommodate Mr. Cage), which one or more people may listen to, though I don't suppose this is entirely necessary either.
..........Nah! too specific innit?

I agree about Alex Ross, perhaps the best book on music I've ever read.

Also D. J. Levitin - This is Your Brain on Music: Understanding a Human Obsession is very good but not as relevant to this thread.

For those who wish to further their knowledge of the subject -

How Music Works by David Byrne is a superb outlining of music, the technology behind making it, the forms and the emotional responses to sound that give music the power it does.

The Rest is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century by Alex Ross, a superb overview of developments in music across the 20th Century.
