Subject: Bonking To The Oldies

Go on then I'll run the risk and start this off:

If you could make love to a piece of music (doesn't have to be an oldie) what would it be?

Are the oldies the best?

Are there risks of physical injury bonking to say an Irish reel?

As I stated on the Bad Music thread, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Some of the most sensuous music I've ever heard, especially the saxophone parts.

I also mentioned Motorhead's "Ace Of Spades", but that's only when I don't have time for the aforementioned drum solo.

Hey Katlaughing, (and I can't believe I'm asking this question, here goes my Catholic school education in a handbasket) is there a particular Dire Straits song or CD that you prefer for this?

Steve, I only have one album by Dire Straits. I just listened to it and would recommend, depending on what tempo you want to set up, Water of Love or Wild West End. What sticks in my mind, too, is Walk on the Wildside, but it is on not on that album.

Ah, those carefree, pharmaceutically-altered college days. My boyfriend worked at the college radio station and had free run of the record room and a reel-to-reel tape recorder, so I got, ah, exposed, shall we say, to some fairly obscure music. Three of my favorites were the long instrumental conclusion to Fleetwood Mac's "Oh, Well", and The Strawbs' "Tears and Pavane" and the first cut on "Hero and Heroine". But then, he also had three hours of John Roberts and Tony Barrand on tape, too, although we never...

Kat - did you know that Arthur Dent shares your tastes? I think Dire Straits came up (no pun intended) in "So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish". Me, I like "Romeo and Juliet" on their "Making Movies" album...

Bonking, Tina Turer's "What's Love Got to do With It" and then in fairness to my other half, She'd have to have some Neil Diamond "Hot August Night" stuff.And of course let's don't forget the creamy peanut butter and bottle of wine.
Then I could settle into some serious listening to Ian Tyson, Guy Clark, John Stewart. I'd have to be a "sicko" to want to BONK to their stuff. Is bonking like dancing?

Lamarca, I'm just re-reading the Hitch Hiker's "trilogy", Haven't made it to So Long and Thanks For All The Fishes, yet, I'll watch for the Dire Straits reference. It was the on book in the series that I didn't think was the equal of the rest. I remember loving the trilogy, but re-reading it many years later I had forgotten what a brilliant work it is.

I must share a very funny moment with you that relates. My best friend of the last 15 years or so is a single gentleman who loves jazz and blues music. One Sunday night I called him at home, not knowing that several others had also called. I also was not aware that he had a guest. It was this magnificent woman that he had been pursuing for quite some time. At any rate, I say "Hello Joe, what's up?" Joe responds, "Mick, listen and tell me what you hear." He then held the phone up, apparently by a speaker. He came back on and said "Who was that?" I replied, "Earl Klugh". He said, "Know what that means?" I replied, "Yep, have a nice time and I will talk to you later". He giggled and hung up the phone. Funny as hell.

3-4 different CDs in the changer for a total of 3-4 hours of continous music are a requirement. Good combination has been Lynn Frances Anderson (not the country singer), Enigma, and Doris Day of all people. For a while the German singer 'Nicki' was one of our favourites.

Billy Holiday, another great choice. I have not heard Enigma, but I guess I'd better check it out.

Well, here I am ready to try some of these suggestions, I have enough money left over for a moderately priced bottle of wine, can rustle up a mean Linguine with clam sauce, have a few candles that haven't been burned in a while. I'm only missing one piece of the puzzle. And I just found out that the promoter of show that I was supposed to attend tonight (my son has an out of town hockey game)was all ready to introduce me to her single girlfriends. When the time comes I'm thinking of Beck's Bolero, and Van Morrison's Baby Please Don't Go and the Inna Gadda Vida Drum solo, (from the a.m. single, not the LP version) Who says romance is dead?

Not that I've done much bonking recently, but I can't imagine doing so to folk songs - I'd want to sing along. And didley music for diddling? I'd be in the middle of a passionate moment and..."hang on, what was it he played there...was it a triplet or a roll...wait a minute, I'll be right back." And what happens when the music's at a different speed than you want to be going? Maybe that's why all the slow music, you can ignore the rhythm.

Annap, that's AC/DC who does "You Shook Me." I was living in a dorm and had a next door neighbor who was having a loud amorous encounter to that tape. They had it on automatic loop - the noises eventually stopped, but the tape kept going. I shut her circuit breaker off (and back on) at some point (about 3AM), but I don't know if she got up for work the next day. I've hated that tape ever since...

Barbara, Maria has always said she sings the way she does just to "turn the boys on". I'll vouch for her abilities.

For me it can be some Celtic harp music - as long as I don't know the words to the songs. Or a favorite Andean flute music tape. Or Pachabel's Canon. Or an old tape I have of Native American flute which I think is callled "Desert Song". But every once in a while a bit of Benny Goodman's band with Gene Krupa on the drums goes just fine.

On first reading I thought he meant that literally (as in making love TO the music, as opposed to making love to a person while accompanied by music). I'd like to know exactly how that would be done before I chose a piece. Can anyone explain to a young aspiring folkie? (I'm 26, and my interactions with music have been limited to playing, listening to, and dancing to it).

One more thing... just thought I'd share.

I was recently at an outdoor jazz festival concert and was sitting right smack against the stage - it was one of those temporary stages made of scaffolding, with a curtain across the front.

At one point, a couple of girls near us lifted the curtain and crawled under the stage and stayed there a while. I don't presume to know what they were doing, but it certainly gave me the idea for something that might be fun to do under a stage during a concert.

Any single men here going to the Celtic Colours Festival in Cape Breton next month?
