CrazyPrincess_Chlo said:Me, I kind of like listening to some 80's pop music. It's from way before my time, but it's just so cool sounding! I really, really like Enya too. Mom is into the New Age style of music BIG TIME so I think I got my liking of Enya from her.

Me, I simply adore 80's pop music! I grew up with Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Jackson, pretty much all of them. The movie Labyrinth also got me into listening to David Bowie who is another of my favorites. There really is nothing quite like 80's music! Heavy metal back then was simply incredible too, especially Dio. I have a huge fondness for Enya's music! I used to play a lot of her music before going to bed back when I was younger, and it used to help me sleep more peacefully. I always suffered a bit from nightmares and night terrors, something I have in common with H.P. Lovecraft from what I've heard... although those seem to occur a lot less in more recent years than they had for me in the past. If you like Enya, I can also recommend Troika! Troika is a lot like Enya, but they are a band that only does instrumental music with a bit of an electronica vibe combined with ancient Pagan musical stylings. Their album Goddess is the best! I've actually played that during magical rites and rituals that I have done, and it really did have a profound effect on the proceedings. That, and burning a bit of Dragon's Blood incense. There is a kind of incense called Black Magic that is awesome for magical workings too, but Dragon's Blood can work as an excellent substitute for that anytime. But back to music! Loreena McKennit is another singer who is a lot like Enya, although some of her music also has a Middle Eastern vibe to it (which I find very cool the way she blends that with Celtic melodies to create something quite interesting musically). Back when I first started listening to Enya and her, I was also a big fan of Charlotte Church. Her early works, not her attempt to venture into pop music, which was quite disappointing compared to what came before with her. I had a CD by Jackie Evancho that I liked as well. She and Charlotte Church were children when they first started out with their singing, but they had incredible voices and when they sang it never failed to reach me on quite the deep and profound level. These days, one of my favorite bands is Therion, who does symphonic heavy metal with dark occult themes.

Would you marry me when I turn of age? I mean seriously! You are so freaking awesome... we have such similar taste in music, that it actually scares me. I LOVE all that stuff too. My mom got me into most of it, since a lot of it was from her generation and all that. Now I can't get enough of it. Send me your playlist sometimes if you don't mind... you can just give me a list of all your favorites and drop me a message with the list in it. I'll send you a list of all mine too! That way we can check our each other's favorite songs. I'm so happy I listened to Sibyl and joined up here!

I am happy that you joined up here too, Chloe! I've only been talking with you for a couple of days now, but it definitely feels like we have a very good connection going, which makes me happy. We do seem to have a whole lot in common, and where we differ it is only to be expected. I think I will send you a playlist in a bit, and you can feel free to send me yours when you get the chance to. I'd love to have a listen to some of your very favorite songs!  If you were of age, sweetie, I would marry you in a heartbeat. You are absolutely delightful, and very pretty too. *Smiles* :)

Hoi hoi
Always have been shamelessly romantic.
No guitars, very strange in 1968, but ring modulator and electric violin.

The LP still graces my turntable when I am in a melancholy mood!

Enjoy!

Good to see this thread populated.with interesting songs and interaction. Here's one for you all. On another site there is a forum for 'Songs That Saved Your Life'. Peeps post a few tunes that have personal significance (don't have to add reasons why). It can create a really impactful list. I'll give it a bit of thought my end and hopefully others feel happy to contribute.

I think I am in danger of getting a whiplash from all the Yes Yes confirmation all nodding (if this is English at all).

The United States of America LP didn’t exactly save my life, but carried me on for half a year or so.
rEM, Tegan and Sara, X-Ray Specs, are the cause of the whiplash.
Thank you!
Kind regards, Gus

You two would definitely make a cute couple! *Wink* Kind of like Louis and Claudia from Interview with the Vampire. I'm just being silly and teasing you, babe! You know how crazy my sense of humor is. Hey, if Chloe does send you her playlist, send me a copy of it if you can, since I really, really am curious to see what kind of music she likes. I wanted to buy her a CD for Christmas but I have no idea what she enjoys listening to. So let me know as soon as you can! I have to leave for my flight tomorrow so anything last minute in the way of gifts that I need to pick up, I want to get sorted before I go.

Hey, Sybil! I was just looking through the forums now, so you caught me just in time. I'm sending you an email right now with Chloe's playlist on it, so you can pick something out for her based on that. She has rather unusual taste for a girl her age, but it is actually very good taste! I was rather surprised to see some classical music and even opera on it given most kids don't have a taste for those things at all. Oh, I know you were teasing me! I am quite used to your sense of humor and adore it, just as I adore you with all my heart. I hope the playlist helps a lot! Love you, sweetheart.

I just got the email now, and yes! This will definitely help me to pick out some music for Chloe that she'll actually listen to. I bought her a CD last year that most girls her age would adore, and she actually threw it at the wall and broke it saying it was stupid.  She's a bit unusual, so this at least will help to avoid any unpleasant reaction... or broken things. Since I was the one who bought it, I felt compelled to pick up the pieces off the floor myself. Not fun! And not cool on Chloe's part either. But she's a kid and kids do crazy things sometimes! You know how it can be. *Sigh* Anyway, I have to be logging off DUP for a bit since I need to go out and get some things before I finish packing for my trip. Take care my love, and if you hear from Chloe tonight send her all of my warmest regards! Who knows, maybe she'll read this and find out I'm buying her a new CD. Tell her it's a surprise if she asks... even I don't know what I'm going to pick out for her quite yet. I'll take a loot at the store, since I'm going out anyway. I love you, Kara! You're the apple of my eye, the spring in my step, and the man of my dreams. Kisses and loves for you!

Kisses and loves for you too, beautiful! I'll be sure to tell Chloe you're getting her something when next I hear from her. She's probably either at supper around now or finishing up her homework. She gave me her schedule last night, or the closest thing she could devise for one. Lol! I hope your trip goes wonderfully, and that Chloe loves the CD you pick out for her this time. One little clue... she hates boy bands! Then again, so do I. Another thing she and I have in common. You are the princess of my dreams, the goddess of my desires, and the love of my life! :D
