Finding your taste of Thai Music
« on: October 28, 2018, 02:58:33 PM »
Yes, you are not confined to your wife's recommendations! I for example got a Spotify account. I simply search for something like "Thai Rock" etc. and get a playlist with stuff not too far from what I used to like back home in my languages. OK, the song and album titles are mostly in Thai and I can't read them. But the band's name is usually in Roman letters, so I can read and remember it, can keep looking for that band and visit one of their concerts.

Carabao, Loso and Bodyslam are among my favorites.

As you said, it's a matter of taste.

For example I like jazzy tunes:

most music tells a story - but your mood must come into play, to what you want to listen at that time. with recent heartbreak, trauma and bereavement, you could hardly listen to a tearful tune, although some people like to be miserable. they dwell on something from the past or create a problem where there isn’t one just so that that they can feel negative emotions again.

oops! wrong thread  :lol

thaiga, your new post poorly paid teachers rarely have the money to live the life they had on holiday made me want to play a song for them to cheer up, but it looks like youtube servers are just too busy right now.

good thread, i'm in, music i love to listen to, no shame on what you like to listen to. up 2 you. music is supposed to be a bonding experience between people, not one where animosity is created because one person thinks the song is terrible.

way back i remember people who listened to classic rock looked down on people who listened to disco and people who listened to contemporary jazz  looked down on people who listened to pop. nothing new. It’s a by product of people being close minded towards new and old music. sometimes we should listen to something you thought you didn't like, maybe the singer put you off, suck it and see. never limit your creative experience, and we change as we get older.

one of the most beautiful tunes i have heard and a story to go with it

Tai Dam Lum Pun (Lament of the Black Tai) is a Lao classic song that was making its debut in 1970. It is about Tai Dam people refuging in Laos during the first stage of the Vietnam War. This song was written by Baccam Lac, a Tai Dam man born in Son La, Vietnam. It had been recomposed by Sanong Ounvong under his pen name "Mee Dam"; and Kor Viseth was the original singer.



ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

music, food to the ears is the saying. is that meant as in sense of taste, like a soundtrack playing would enhance the perception of flavour. i have a sweet tooth so ... What Does Sweetness Sound Like?

ever wondered why ice cream trucks still stick to their sprightly high-pitched tunes

Lab experiments show that we associate different sounds with different flavors, and that sounds influence how foods taste.

bacon and eggs, simply by playing sizzling bacon sounds researchers were able to change people’s perception of the dominant flavor by playing the sizzling cooking sounds.

music and food both bring people together. The best restaurants know what atmosphere to create and is as important as the food. for a restaurant, music is the spice in the air, it has to be just right, like you wouldn't go to a disco if you wanted a chat. classical and light jazz, will cause diners to linger longer, good for the owner as you stay a bit longer, more drinks are orded as the atmosphere has put you in a lingering mood.

when they have had enough of you they can just turn the music off, lol. studies say if the tempo is fast it will increase your blood pressuse and you eat and drink faster. all about getting the level right or the volume as people don’t like screaming at each other to get heard during dinner conversation. on the other hand if the volume is to low people will eat less, as they are more self-conscious, who wants to listen to people chewing. people come together to eat as it escapes reality.

nothing worse when the needle gets stuck or the tape is stuck , keeps replaying itself

I know the thread is  Finding your taste of Thai Music so before M.T.Sac rushes in to tell us the track below is not thai  i got there first

Johnny Cash lost 75% of his vision, can barely stand up, and yet he still never gave up. RESPECT Johnny Cash - His Final Live Performance 2003
