@workerbee - Happy Together is one of the most infectious "happy" songs I've ever heard. Some part of your body will move; your ear will wiggle, your nose will twitch, or your eye will flutter.

Listen to the whole song or skip to 1:16 for their version of Happy Together.  Local group from Towson state with national fame in their genre.

The ultimate Irish song:

 

 

I thought the ultimate Irish song was Patriot Game.

Had to Google that one. Very mellow...a similar flavor to Traffic's "John Barleycorn Must Die". This is certainly a tune all my friends would hate, but not me.

@babylinux - Macy Gray's sexy, raspy voice resonates my Musical Chord. I fell in love with her as a person just from hearing her voice...before I ever saw an image of her. I had the same reaction after hearing:

Corinne Bailey Rae



Goapele

On the kind of related....had never really heard of Cee Lo Green, but saw him on Live From Daryl's House and really enjoyed it.  Their version of I can't go for that is worth checking out.  They really had a ball with that one.

Was into more the Psych/Acid/Rock era, Cream, Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf etc, not so much into Led Zep personally, was the 1st person in my bunch to "Discover" Hendrix.

Why did you choose to link a tribute band rather than the real deal?

 

Randy is good - not as crisp as Jimi - and yikes he's over 60! A little old to be trying to look like a guy in his mid 20's

'Cause Machine Gun is prob my Fav number by Jimi, done after the Experience w/Buddy Miles in Band of Gypsies and there are no decent Videos of Jimi playing it. There's the Original off the Album mashed up with a few clips and photos on YouTube but that's it. Randy is the closest to the Original I've ever heard. Here you get a taste of how it was for real. But if you Insist!

I saw Hendrix at the Civic Center in 1970 - not sure what month, but obviously before Sept.

Don't remember a lot from back then, but I do remember that ;)

Cee lo is fantastic!

 

He was dressed to the nines at this year's Grammys.

His song "forget you" was a huge hit.

 

I got to see him with Danger Mouse when they were Gnarls Barkley. One of the best shows I've ever seen live.

Thanks naive!

Omg, look at those ticket prices...lol

 

My son just paid $300 for 2 tickets to Metallica

at M&T.

The Civic Center is cozy and intimate compared to the stadium.
