You mean five percent? Or have the rates gone up today?

Right now my brain is playing a Cardiacs song called Fiery Gun Hand, ,but the theme from Bob the Builder keeps getting interjected because my daughter's watching it on TV.

Dangit, that's what I get for listening in music in my head. Tongue
Probably more like 30% these days anyway.

I know them as The Beat. I guess they are called The English Beat in the US only, similarly to The Mission UK.

There was already a band Called The Beat in the USA so hence the name.  No I don't think any of the others had to change their name.  I believe there was a Mission in the States too but I'm not sure.

It's going to take some effort to get this out of my head

Cause what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head

Quite unexpectedly, I wound up going to a Cracker concert tonight.  It was a get-together for a friend of ours who was having a birthday, and it was at an Irish pub.  Little did I know that this pub had set up an outdoor tent with a bunch of bands, with Cracker being the headliner.  Those of you who were aware of 90s alternative rock probably remember them.  The singer used to be in Camper Van Beethoven (a band I LOVED).  Cracker isn't nearly as interesting, but they have one or two songs I like.

LOLBig smile sorry Big smile . Actually, it's that song alternating on occasions with the near end of 'Tubular Bells, part 2.' I think it's because of the organ or they (for the lack of a better word) logically sound together.

Recently I came up with my Top 50 Genesis songs (really, I did - in order, too)  and Looking for Someone, to my mild surprise, came in at #2. Not bad for a "transitional effort".

Their best track I've heard so far.

Now listening to ... ahem ... Corrina Bailey Rae, 'Call Me When You Get This'. I just can't put my finger on those strings in the beginning and the end. I was doing this 6-9pm shift in Macy's and heard this.

Sorry, but I don't understand your question. Even though it's been a while since I've started recording music, I still don't know the difference between stereo and mono. Please, don't laugh Ermm . Me personally, I still don't have the "jukebox" under control. For instance:


Thank you, guys, you did it. After a 5-hr sleep 'Help, I'm a Rock' popped in my head.

The question was really just a joke anyway, asking if you hear music in your head in mono or stereophonic sound.  Meaning, is the mind's "left ear" hearing the same thing as the mind's "right ear", or are the music's instrumental components separated into separate channels to simulate an actual "room", or listening space?

Come to think of it, it is kind of hard to explain what stereo is.  I'm sure someone else can explain it better than I.

I only know that the difference is the presence or absence of an instrumental part or two or if something does not sound well mixed. Oh, well. I will do some research on that. Thanks.

It was actually a serious question.  I conjured up some music in my head that has a definite stereo presence in audio (the end of Karn Evil 9), but in recall it doesn't have one but it doesn't seem quite mono either, if you know what I mean.

I meant that when I first asked you about it, I was trying to be funny.  It actually has turned into an interesting question though.  I *think* I hear songs in stereo in my head, in that I can sense some 3D quality to the sound (depth, space) rather than it sounding like something out of a transistor radio.  The physical nature of "memories of music" could in fact be very different from the physical nature of "real time experience of music", though.  Interesting query here...  Any brain surgeons on this forum?

My head is playing Moves Like Jagger due to an unhealthy dosage of FM radio at work today. It is however trying to play the melody with a moogLOL That's the least it can do, and I must admit that I kind of like the track - and maybe a little too much despite the overplay. But man it sounds weird in my head right now with that moog. I purposely chose the duck sounding moog like the one at the very end of Tarkus. WUARB WUARBWAP WAPP.

Moron 5 is far better with a moog - in fact I strongly recommend taking whatever brainnumbing radiohit you've got rotating in the old cabeza and then spicing it up with ulterior interesting instruments. Who wouldn't want a little oboe in their Snoop Dog eh?

Oh crap, from Exposure, "That Is The Way It Is". LOL
I had to look up the song and put it on.  It's called I May Not Have Had Enough Of Me But I've Had Enough Of You. 
Out of nowhere, I swear. Big smile

I'm putting Mylo Xyloto in right now, in order to get the song I have stuck in my head out of it.
It happens to be Alligator Sky by Owl City, unfortunately.

Oh, God. I looked it up on YouTube, and it gave me a bunch of results, one of which was "Yes We Can = Thank You Satan" LOL . I didn't find the track you mentioned, though.

'Willie O'Wilsbury', Anne Briggs.

OK, my mind has just gone through Talking Heads' 'Stay Hungry' and 'Heaven', Nick Drake's 'Hazey Jane I', and 'The Musical Box' in a matter of 10 min. Right now it's (again):

Today at work:
 
And the man from the magazine, wants another shot of you all curled up
'Cos you look like an actor in a movie shot.
But you're feeling like a wino in a parking lot
How did I get in here anyway?
Do we really need a playback of the show?
'Cos the wideboys want to head for the watering holes

Let's go

And the man in the mirror has sad eyes
 
And then straight into:
 
I am - you are - we are - Crazy!
 
What?!

'I Will' and 'I Talk to the Wind' are certainly songs that could get stuck inside your head. I wonder if anyone had Gentle Giant or Camel stuck inside their heads, 'cause for me these bands are hard to take so far.

I didn't really like this song, but today God or Satan has turned it around for me:

I have. Just recently I had 'The Runaway' going around my head for a few hours. But then again I am a major GG fanboy and know most of their albums inside out.

When I think Gentle Giant, I think "counterpoint", that is, juxtaposing melodic lines going in different directions but harmonically fitting together.  It can be hard to swallow, as sometimes the complexity is so distracting that the songs can sound like a mess, or they can sound like they're trying to hard to be complex.  But it can be very rewarding if you acquire the taste for it, and they're deservedly considered one of the "elite" prog bands.

That's one of my favorite Talking Heads songs.  I remember listening to that song several times in a row when I first discovered it as a kid.

^ Yeah that. I'll admit I hated GG when I first heard them and it took a good year for me to finally appreciate the first album I bought of theirs ('Octopus') and 'In A Glass House' took me a long while to enjoy but I find once I listen to it enough and become familiar with all it's quirks I find it very enjoyable.

I'm still working on "Glass House" myself.  It was the last one I acquired, so it's not as well established in my head yet.  I think "Three Friends" was the first one I ever got, and I only liked about half of it at first.
