Not really, but I found that listening to Pink Floyd intensifies my fear of heights immeasurably.
Conversely, Rush makes me less afraid of heights, though no less clumsy at climbing ladders.

Yeah, but she's an anime girl, so it doesn't really count. Wink

I have zero superstitions about prog.

I also got into a car accident while We're Only In It For The Money was on. The accident wasn't so bad, but still jarring. Couldn't listen to it for a couple of years at least.

True story - I can't listen to "The Wall" in the car. I've only listened to the whole thing twice in the car (lonnng road trips), and both times I was pulled over for speeding. And they were the only times I was pulled over. (Now I probably jinxed myself and will get clocked on the way home from work.)

This actually happened to me once! The deja vu was more of a mood that set in rather than an event. It is hard to explain, but it had to do with the weather that day and thoughts about a certain girl I knew at the time. The weird thing was that the memory aspect of it was of something that had not happened and never happened (and it isn't what all of you are thinking - get your minds out of the gutter )

Hi,
 
Not really, but every now and then there is a cut here and there that ... gets you and you remember it ... and there is one such example in a Barclay James Harvest album that ... has a knack for making me go ... not sure I want to hear it now kinda thing ... which sometimes is dis-concerting.
 
Generally, a moment like that for me is much tougher than any "suggestions" or "weirdness" in many albums under the guise and futility that it is this or that ... many times making it laughable (ie ... some bands that think they are evil! ... ) ... when, all in all, sometimes the easiest sequence of sound effects is way more intriguing and "visual" than the idea and the lyrics!
 
Generally not.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

You listening to Roundabout? I didn't expect that...

Hey, Roundabout was the song that introduced me to Prog.


Oh well, somewhat nice to hear about something you kind of like from Yes. I wonder if you might by chance like Asia's version better, without Anderson singing it (as for me, I definitley like Yes's version better).

Not superstitious, but I am rather obsessive-compulsive. I refuse to break up any album I would regard as at least a 4.5 on my scale. There are some I will only listen to on long car trips as I can more or less reasonably assume they won't be interrupted. Some I allocate to trips to the gym as well because I can still adequately digest while working out and also be certain to get through them all in one go. There's not really a science to making that decision. Some just work for one scenario but not the other. Some work for both. For that reason I don't listen to more than a handful of albums any given week. My lesser picks are put in the car for day-to-day trips where I don't care if they become fragmented.

Don't know if this counts but, I like to listen to Cinema Show or Counting Out Time before I see my favorite girl in the morning. Wink

I never listen to Fylingdale Flyer whenever being near the Nuclear missiles, and on the clear nights when NLOs could show up out of nowhere.

I listen to Vangelis's album THE CITY the night before my Marathons. Never had an injury and have always finished those 42k beasts. Got one this Sunday (may 5th) so I got that album nice and ready! :)
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

I never listen to Mahavishnu's Birds of Fire, or any Univers Zero or Magma record during full moon nights.

I would have thought his `Chariots Of Fire' soundtrack would have been very appropriate for any marathons, Nick! You can also imagine moving in slow motion as you cross the finish line!
