Music Monday (feel free to add your own music)

in musicmonday •  last month

The aim is simple, to banish those Monday blues with an eclectic range of music chosen by Steemit friends both old and new.

Music Monday.jpg

Every Monday I intend to post a music video (and a few words explaining my choice) I invite you to join me by doing same in the comments section below. As the forum (hopefully) grows my aim is that we begin to inspire our fellow Steemians to broaden their musical horizons by listening to the music that inspires us. The only thing I ask is that (where possible) every song we listen to is played nice and loudly on headphones or speakers in order that we capture it’s true essence.

As more Steemians join this venture there is also going to be the possibility of being rewarded for our musical tastes via the amount of upvotes each song receives. That said please never feel awkward about posting a track, a guilty pleasure or even your own musical ventures. I have an extremely wide range of musical interests but also understand that music like beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder. As such I may play my chosen song, but who am I to define what constitutes good music.

My wi-fi keeps dipping in and out tonight, so I'll listen and upvote as soon as I possibly can. I hope everyone has enjoyed a great weekend. My choice this week is a 60's inspired slice of musical psychedelia that whilst retro, manages to carve out a unique style of it's own. I hope you enjoy.

This isn't about making me Steem so please save your upvotes and reward the songs that you feel are worthy, although equally if my song stands out to you then I'd appreciate the vote. Any resteems would be much appreciated, all are invited and welcomed to join us in sharing and listening to a diverse range of music.

Dude,
I just heard you’re locked out of discord. I hope you’re doing ok, let me know when you’re back in there we need a good catch up.
Take care buddy.

Hey dude, I've managed to get back in :D Definitely have a catch up soon!!

·
·

Cool. 👊😎

Wshew I almost forgot again today!

This one is a long one because it is the latest album by my favourite recent band Clutch.

I am getting a whole lot of listens of this in so that I am prepared when the gang hits the show in Oct 23rd.

Go see these guys live! You are WELCOME!

Hey my friend, I was only listening to "gone cold" the other day .. classic :) I have yet to listen to all of this (I certainly will) but from the first couple of songs .. it sounds like a great album, loving the riffs and guitar work! Thank you for sharing @zekepickleman

I'm already becoming a fan of this Monday moment, @perceptualflaws. Your selection is great!! as to travel to another world! Although your song is insurmountable, I'm going to take out of the time machine a jewel of universal music: Pink Floyd - Another brick in the wall. A song and a video for the story! I hope you enjoy it.

·

Hey @nancybriti .. thank you for stopping by and I'm glad you enjoyed my choice .. this is a stone cold classic from one of my favourite albums of all time! What more can I say? It's a stone cold classic and a brilliant choice for #musicmonday .. As always. thank you for the music my friend :)

One sultry song for you bro, note not on youtube, as I take myself away from the mainstream narrative of google, windows, fb etc :-)

Love this. I remember buying the 'So tonight that I might see' album on Vinyl many many moons ago.

·
·

Superb taste in music you have there my friend.

·
·
·

Almost as good as yours I'd say;)

·
·
·
·

I shall take that as a compliment good sir.

<------ Tips hat, nods with a smile and retires to writing another blog for tonight.

Hey my friend .. I love this track! In fact I had it in mind to share but you've pipped me to the post. Such a beautifully ethereal dreamscape of music, it always get's me and it's one of those tracks I always have to listen twice. An inspired choice of music @shepz1 I very much enjoyed listening to this!

·
·

I thought it would be right up your alley, super taste my friend, have a superb week, and hope all went well with the move? I can not disco for the moment, my laptop fried, so I am now on a new one and ubuntu.

Here you go

I hope you like that techno song, I discovered it years ago watching an old tomorrowland aftermovie video

·

This is great at high vol :)

·

Hey my friend, sorry for the delay in upvoting .. I'm at a friends at the moment and the net is sooo slow! Love the vibes, ethos and video of this great track .. awesome stuff! What it is to be young and free eh? Thank you for the music @dedicatedguy I very much enjoyed this one :)

I love your choice. I'd not heard of the Walking Who before but Isn't that just Dandy is an expression I use quite a lot.
A traditional Irish tune from me this week.

·

Very powerful. I thought I recognised Christy Moore's voice :)

·
·

Yes indeed, there's no mistakin' Christy!

·

A poignantly beautiful choice you've made here @deirdyweidy I hate all the atrocities that have been carried out against your lands .. as I hate the brutal and sadistic actions of governments across the world. I also hate how they put ordinary working men and women against each other and create division when we have so much that unites us. One day my friend ... Thank you for the music .. I very much appreciate the song and sentiment.

And if we could all just realise that, we could change the world in a day.

Hi @perceptualflaws, this is my first entry for MM although I have noticed your posts :). I've got something a little different, a 10-min piece sung in Urdu/Punjabi by Abida Parween. Perhaps not to everyone's taste, but it's one of my favs.

·

Hey my friend, sorry for the delay in upvoting .. I'm at a friends at the moment and the net is sooo slow! Never heard these artists before and this was a really pleasant surprise .. great music great artists, thank you for the music I really enjoyed this introduction :)

·
·

Thanks for listening (hope at loud vol :) and I'm really pleased you liked it! I'll be back again for another MM 🔆

·

I really liked that. Didn't it expect it.

·
·

Thank you, I find it a very powerful piece of Sufi music!

Pretty cool song. It's definitely some hippie era music with all of the psychedelics in the video. I can't quite figure out which song it reminds me of, but there is one from the era.
I'll figure it out but it also reminds me of this great Doors song


Riders on the storm

Hey my friend, sorry for the delay in upvoting .. I'm at a friends at the moment and the net is sooo slow! Ah man what a stone cold classic .. I love this track!! One of their very last and one of their very best, so smooth and dreamlike. Thank you for the music @cmplxty

Happy Monday ev1...as usual I'm late to the party :P

·

Be late for your own funeral springs to mind. :-)

·

Hey my friend, sorry for the delay in upvoting .. I'm at a friends at the moment and the net is sooo slow! You don't know how long it's taken me to listen to all the music. Excellent choice again this week .. so true, the art form of hip hop at it's most powerful .. 04.10 minutes of history, wisdom and truth .. respect!! Thank you for the music my friend, I very much enjoyed this one!

·

Sounds like you got stuck in a time warp lol. All good!

Let me share a song from these Swedish dudes! American music made by Swedes. Let's call it globalization!
Hellsingland Underground "Earth's Gonna Shake"

·

Ha I liked this my friend .. nice vibe, upbeat track and great musicians .. what's not to love? Cool Swedish American fusion with sounds that could have come from the deep south :) Thank you for the music my friend, I very much enjoyed this :D

@perceptualflaws, I love this!! 🎵💜

I'm excited to sample new sounds from others + to share this one with you all.
It's been my favorite music video for the past 3 years:
