Love all kinds of music, but I do have one CD that I call my "desert island" CD. You know the one, the one that if you were stranded on a desert island with the one you love the most, and your Airstream, and a life's supply of great wine, but only one CD? In my estimation it would have to be a rather little-known album by Van Morrison, Poetic Champions Compose. It is great listening when you're pulling in traffic, soothing but not sleepy, and can be listened to again and again...I'm on my 5th CD of the same album. No I haven't worn them out, but have lent them to friends knowing they'd love it as much as I, regrettably, they do, and they just never come home. Hey, what are friends for.
BTW some of you are so much more technologically advanced, posting the videos is way cool... Thanks. Happy Holidays.

Thumbs up

I like to listen to something that will bring a smile while towing.

John Prine does it well.

My Dad was a musician (conductor) and I grew up with classical music. I have Sirius XM in my truck and will have it in my new Classic as well. I listen to Symphony Hall ... but I also like country, bluegrass, and almost any music if the singer sings on key and the musicians do the same. That is saying a lot, sad to say.

Man, we must really be square. When we are towing, we have the sound system off, watch the scenery and road, and (this is novel) we talk to each other.

The sounds of the highway are our music.

Ken

EDIT:

After reading through the thread again, I realize that there is at least one other couple that talks to each other. I feel slightly more normal.

We can't talk to each other. Can't hear each other over the loud music! LOL

The one thing I failed to mention is that my wife and I have somewhat different tastes in music. She likes music that to me sounds like banshees being tortured, and I like loud 1960's surf guitar instrumentals. Silence seems to be a good compromise.

My favorite CD is Sounds of Wood and Steel, which was a joint project to Windham Hill Records and Taylor Guitars about 15 years ago. Here are 7 tunes from the CD that are available together on YouTube.

Enjoy! Merry Christmas one and all.

I'm with BAB in favoring classical music, with classic rock coming in second. Also have Sirius/XM and listen to Symphony Hall.

Your Music Choice Is?

Heavy metal - Judas Priest, Ozzy, Queensryche, Dio, and Rush. I've caught the wife singing Ozzy so I know I'm good.

We talk, too, but we live together, carpool together, and eat three meals together pretty much every day, so we don't need constant conversation. Silence can be as great as a conversation.

That's us too, age difference and different tastes in music. I like the Beach Boys (the Endless Summer CD is wonderful), Sinatra, Dean Martin, Queen, Def Leppard, Dixie Chicks, Marty Robbins, ZZ Top, Meat Loaf... I could go on, there's so much great music out there. I like music from the 40s to the 80s and some of the new stuff that is around now. My wife likes a variety of hard rock from the 70s, Pink Floyd, a few 80s groups and some of the new stuff that is around now.

Mostly, we pretty much have the Sirius radio on low and just talk about the scenery, traveling, destination, etc. When she reads her book I get to pick the music but Beach Boys is right out and I don't get to play any other 40-60s music either. Sirius is great because there are different genre channels that appeals to both of us, at least most of the time.

I never get to 'crank it up', though, unless I'm by myself. Then it's Def Leppard, Beach Boys and me.

I used to think that the pursuit of new experiences, sights, and sounds was a worthy objective in its own right and needed no musical validation. But, travelling alone can become somewhat tedious, so I like to tune into the local radio stations to see if there's anything worth stopping for - a community market, event, etc.

And when the road ahead takes on an ethereal, rarefied quality -
Gregorian chant enhances the experience......
