I've been on a bit of a remix kick lately, and Postmodern Jukebox is pretty good.  They remix current (and not so current) songs in various forms from Big Band to Motown to everything in between.

Philip II of Macedon to Spartans (346 BC):  "You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city."

What are you listening to/fav type of music 

For me, after Elvis got drafted, and before the so called "British Invasion".

This musical era has traditionally been perceived as the decline of rock and roll.

( Elvis drafted. The death of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. The retirement of Little Richard. Prosecutions of Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry. The payola scandal. )

American Grafitti: "Rock and roll's been going down hill ever since Buddy Holly died."

But, some of my favorite music came out of this period. Maybe because I connect it with early childhood memories.

Doo wop. The rise of the girl groups. Phil Spector and his "Wall of Sound". The "Brill Building sound." Surf music.

Such as, "Footsteps" by Steve Lawrence.

Walkin' away from me.
Why did ya say goodbye?
Why did ya make me cry?
Now ev'ry day I wonder
Why, why, a-why, why, why, why?
Footsteps, Footsteps, Footsteps, Footsteps, Footsteps.

Interesting swing remix/retake of "Take on me" (Ah-Ha)

Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

I've been enjoying a lot of the new talent coming up through the Canadian Indie-Folk scene: a band from Toronto named Wild Rivers has some good stuff (Heart Attack) : https://youtu.be/n3MPasiToGw

And something I listen to at work when I have the chance: WOGN (Waves of good noise)- a youtube channel of great new music. www.youtube.com/waveofgoodnoise

It's a bootleg upload of a stage musical.  Black Watch.
