Not a big fan but it has to be my fave Police song, the visuals work well on this:

Something VERY different from the usual musical posts on this thread.  I may have mentioned that I played lead guitar, and sang lead and backing vocals in heavy rock bands.  What I didn't mention, was that I also played symphonic music (I played Euphonium), through my Sophomore year of college.  Since I wasn't a music major, and was transferring to a major university (the University of Wisconsin), I ceased to play symphonic music after 1984.  Nevertheless, I still have a love for symphonic music (and there are times, when I very much miss playing the stuff - though at age 57, unless I can come up with about $5000 for a Euphonium, and am willing to play in some community band, with mediocre musicians [no thanks, I was 1st chair, when I played in symphonic bands], that ain't happening]).  I just finished watching the video below.  It's from 2016 - a time period, when flash mobs were in vogue, and many symphonies also did the flash mob thing for fun, and for the publicity. 

The piece is from Gustav Holst's "The Planets" suite, and is the "Jupiter" movement of the suite.  It was performed at the Prudential Center in Boston by the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra (from the Berklee School of Music - a very well known and respected music school).  Like all symphony flash mobs, it starts off with a single solitary instrument (a cello in this case), and builds up to a full symphony, complete with strings, percussion, wind instruments, and a conductor.  I found it very moving (the kind of music that brings me to tears - Aaron Copeland's "Fanfare for The Common Man" also does that to me sometimes [I love emotional music]), and I remember playing "The Planets" suite, when I played in the junior college symphony.

Any BOC fans on this forum?  From the new album which is pretty much a stinker unfortunately, this is the exception:


~Declaring my love for all things Feminine at every opportunity~

~I’m just another transfemme making her way in the world, please be kind out there~

I found out recently that they had a new one out. Not their best of course, but it'd be ludicrous to expect that at this point.

True, but I just wanted more than what we got, especially all the good reviews it was getting.  Very disappointing, at least for me.  I have to go way back to their greatest.

So, as I commented already, I started HRT today, and I felt pulled to this Coil classic:


(It actually feels like my body is making the same noise as the intro here...did anyone else feel that when they started?)
It took over 40 years to realise, and believe, that what I am NOT, is a mistake.

(Yes, I'm a Canadian who served in the US Navy....)

Last month, Beth Orton's cover of Antony and the Johnsons' song "For Today I Am a Boy" was included as part of a compilation release entitled Good Night Songs for Rebel Girls. Orton's cover got released today as a single. I thought people here would especially enjoy it - I certainly did, as Beth Orton is one of my all-time faves.

Ooh, how did I miss this? I LOVE Holst!

A lot of heavy music got it's inspiration from Mars.
