I used to DL tunes from Napster and LimeWire years ago. I have probably a total of 15 Gb of music dating back into the late '40's in most of the popular genres including classic old stump jumpin' country and the more contemporary country music. When Napster was busted by the music MIB cops, I burned a whole pile of CD's before wiping all traces of Napster off my hard drive. I was told that they would be lost if I removed the Napster program from my HD because of the methods used to integrate the downloading and HD storage of the music.

Then the music MIB went after LimeWire a few years ago and, again, I cleaned LimeWire off my HD!! Only this time, I am older and more forgetful and I forgot to save the music onto some storage facility that can be used separately!! So I lost everything from LW ............. I thought. A friend told me about a program that will search out "deleted" files on a HD and recover them, many times with little or no damage to the files. Sounded like it was worth a go at it so I downloaded a program titled, "Recuva" and went to work. I found about 8.5 Gb of music out of probably over 12 Gb that I had downloaded from LW before they got busted!! I went through the files recovered and deleted those with fewer than 2 Mb of music and stored what was left on a thumb drive. It worked although about 1/3 of the titles names were lost and replaced with generic numerical names. I am now going through and editing each song to properly title it.

Today, about the only music that I flat out cannot STAND is the classical "wait till the fat lady sings" shriekingatthetopofherlungs opera ........... and Rap! That second choice is an abomination to the ears of music lovers in my opinion!! It requires absolutely NO music talent and mostly is gibberish to me!!

My favorites include old country, classic R&R, bluegrass, jazz, and some of the contemporary type music such as Enya and Kitaro. My favorite all time song of the Eagles has to be that very short number titled, "Seven Bridges Road", great harmony and lyrics in my opinion. The acappella version they did live is a real classic.

This ^^ is correct. Music is music. Some of it you like some you don't. Its no different regarding the condiments on your ham sandwich.

John Mayer's radio stuff can be a little too poppy, but he is one of todays guitar gods in the making. Dave's new stuff is terrible in comparison to his early stuff. DBT are great, they dont have a bad cd! Ray Lamontagne is very talented and has some great bluesy stuff. I always have and always will be a WP fan, but find myself listen to alot of GD these days.


I do have to agree that 90% of the stuff on 90% of the radio stations us terrible. Most of it sounds like some sort of club music. I am thankful we have 92.1 here in Mobile...they dont play any pop music.

who decides what music is these days? Rap to me is a joke. and so many of the would be singers sound like they are in pain or worse.anyone think the rap listeners of today will be saying in the old days 40 years a go it was all good music.seems each generation embraces their music.

Downtime, I am with you. Great choices.
When I was in high school, I was really into Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Grand Funk,Steppenwolf and the Doors to name a few. Also liked Neil Young, James Taylor, Creedance and (dare I say it) Carol King.
I'm not exposed much to the current music. My wife and I like to watch American Idol and they sometimes have current artists on there. I swear, I watch some of them and I can't figure out if they are playing a joke or what. It's pathetic. Painful to watch.
I do think the best rock and roll band to come along in the last 25 years (that would exclude Aerosmith and ZZ Top) is Guns N Roses. Those guys tore it up !
