Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Wow.

Thank you.

M.

So, then I found this one.

Trouble is, with the cool yodeling and other instruments being used, I have to stop what I'm working on and flip the screen up to watch them.

It's hard to use as background music to work to, when that happens....

I had never heard of this band and think of myself as more of a thrash fan (though I guess one could debate where the line is drawn in some cases), but I listened to a couple songs and really like the music.  I just looked for top-rated songs (Unstoppable, Memento Mori, and Bloodline, according to one site), so if you have any particular recommendations, I'd like to check them out.

Recommendations band-wise, or song-wise? (Sorry for the late response; I only just checked back.)
I know it's a genus.

No worries! I was thinking song-wise for that band aside from the ones I mentioned, but if you have band recommendations too, fantastic.

I quite like Crows, Ghosts, and The Sovereign, in addition to the ones you mention.

Alas, I don't much care for thrash (although I haven't explored the genre in a couple decades, so maybe things have changed?). But if you want to explore more melodeath, you should try Amon Amarth, Finntroll, and Dark Tranquillity for a start. Arch Enemy is pretty similar to Aephanemer, especially the more recent stuff, so that might also be of interest. And then there's Nekrogoblikon, who are a lot of fun.

Thanks! I just listened to the other three Aephanemer songs you listed.  I like the music a lot, and Crows and the music from The Sovereign remind me so much of a song I love that I can't think of! I will try to come up with it in case it's one you would be interested in (and, also, I really want to listen to it now).  Argh.  I will check out the other bands as well!

What kind of fool am I, written by Leslie Bricusse and  Anthony Newley, performed by Sammy Davis, Jr. (Live version).

One of my students used data about the Grammy Award for Song of the Year winners in an assignment recently. That was an unusual data choice for my course, so I needed to verify some of it. I'm now building a playlist of winners and nominees, as I listen to how U.S. popular music has changed since 1959.
Enthusiasm is not a skill set. (MH)

I found out that the Galavant TV series soundtrack was on iTunes and quickly downloaded that and am enjoying it so much.

ETA: I loved the soundtrack while watching the show, and that makes a lot more sense now.  Apparently Alan Menken (listed as having credits that include Little Shop of Horrors, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Hercules, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Home on the Range, Enchanted and Tangled) composed the songs!

The latest episode of Booklist's "Shelf Care Interview" series and podcast--an interview with Nancy Pearl

I saw Ms. Pearl as she moderated an author's panel during ALA Annual Chicago one year. I forget what it was about however it was neat to see her.

Classical music on local NPR affiliate. Kinda foreboding for the moment. Ooolh, harp!
So, I tried to straighten everything out and guess what I got for it.  No, really, just guess!

"The Celts" (1992) by Enya

Haven't listened to it lately, but I love it.  Some of my favorite Enya music.
To us a child is born, to us a son is given
And the government will rest upon his shoulders;
And he will be called Wonderful, Counselor,
The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father,
The prince of Peace.
Of his government and peace there will be no end.
