Don't lots of Scottish people (and Irish) leave their country to seek fame and fortune in the big city of a faraway country, vow to return one day, but never do? :lol:

PS I'm not leaving Japan!

I have a fair bit of Scots and Irish blood (my maiden name was Gove which means smith - of the Jason kind) and I love to hear the pipes, but just one at a time please, not a whole band and certainly not everyday and most definitely not as an alarm - doesn't the Queen get that when she's at Balmoral? *shudders* :wink:
I also think there's a type of music that suits the pipes and it's not Amazing Grace... :x

Have kept out of this as I'm really 'off' most sounds atm - have overdone the sensory input recently :oops: I can't even stand Birdsong Radio and I have the real thing just outside in the garden so it's not really needed :lol:

My tastes are very eclectic and includes some country, mainly written by both Dolly and Parton PMSL (though little western save perhaps the Blues Bros version of Rawhide! :D ) punk; glam-rock - I still like Glitterrock too even though the man's a slimeball - dosen't mean the music's crap and the Glitterband were AMAZING live with the 2 full drum kits on stage -their drum 'solos' truly rocked! Was like an earthquake! :twisted: ;
What else? David Bowie's been there all along although I didn't enjoy the Thin White Duke phase too much, but the music was mostly excellent then; Queen too and although they've lost Freddy :cry: they're still right up there and those vids are all works of art; Bob Marley; Eddie Grant; Police; Jethro Tull - Ian Anderson is an utter god and loves cats too! :lol:; Ultravox before and with Ure; Thin Lizzy; Boomtown Rats; Spandau and Duran; Thompson Twins...

... and then it gets a little vague and I started to diversify into more classical stuff - adore Beethoven and Handel and opera as well, especially Puccini and Wagner - have you ever driven in a thunderstorm with Ride of the Valkyries playing on the CD - it's brilliant! :lol:

Rap/Hip-Hop I mostly don't like but if I have to Eminem's pretty cool if weird. Hey Chris - guess what? I love Howard Shore too - especially LotR :twisted:

No, my mother met my father when they were both on holiday in Galway.
So she left Dublin to move here --a steel mill town on the edge of Appalachia.

Yes, all the bad things you hear about the Appalachian region are true.

Thank any god who's paying attention, my parents traveled and made sure I saw a bit of the world and almost all of North America.

I promise that in my whole life I've never ever heard anything bad about the Appalachian area. I don't even know where it is.

What am I missing? Can you tell me some juicy stuff?

I hate threads like this but can't help myself from wanting to post - just in case someone says my fave musical artists first and then it looks like I am copying :shock:

- I haven't read anyone mention my fave music yet so you are probably all much more sophisticated than me. This is my "despite the passing of time these artists remain" list

1. John Martyn (mayherestinpeace)
2. Leftfield (was a cheesy quaver in the 90's)
3. Goldfrapp (she makes her own clothes you know)
4. Nina Simone (who doesn't need a little sugar in their bowl!)
5. Prince
6. RHCP
7. Led Zeppelin
8. The Who
9. The Smiths
10. Black SAbbath
11. Tom Waits (And the piano has been drinking, not me)
12. Paul Simon

Trouble with a list like this is it's hard to stop once you start
Have got a more classical list too

i) Il Nozze di Figaro
ii) Handels Messiah
iii) Bach - cantata and fugue in d Minor
iv) planets suite - Gustav Holst
v) Peter and the wolf - Grieg
vi) and not strictly classical but War of the worlds - Jeff Wayne

Feel a bit embarassed now, and a bit teenaged somehow
