    That is a very broad brush you are using there.

    Opera has about as large a range of styles contained as any other musical genre.

    From Handel and Mozart through Beethoven to Verdi, and Puccini and beyond into the moderns like Berg, and the post moderns like Glass!

    I find the greater part of opera difficult to take, but I doubt many can be repelled all that much by at least four of Mozart's greatest operas!!!

    Opera is one of the greatest art forms ever created by mankind.

    Compared to the Breton bagpipes the Scottish ones are a full symphony.

    Could you please translate that which sounds like 'Yo muthafucka ma bitch just a ho' to me, into some 'serious statement'?

    I actually rather like the Concertina when played well. Whilst accompanying my ageing music hall comic Father in Law to 'gigs', I was fortunate to meet the late Joe Maley, a Glaswegian who went out into the Music Hall Theatres as 'Jack Easy' and played assorted Concertinas with great skill.

    Whilst I'm not especially fond of the atonal Scottish version.. there are versions of bagpipes all over the world, includng a Greek/Cretan version called, I believe 'Haskamandouras'.. or thereabouts ..

    But the Irish version.. which I'm not going to attempt to spell this late after a few beers.. is a whole other ball game a beautiful instrument..never better used than here...

    Maybe you are listening to the wrong Reggae. or allowing the relatively recent 'Reggae' tag to blind you to Jamaican Music.

    Yes rap has a misogynist element just like heavy metal. It also has a serious protest side to it, check out Rob G ' Court is now in session', an awesome slice of 80s Hiphop.

    Chill Rob G – Court Is Now In Session Lyrics
    Never feeling insignificant I can make a difference
    You need an example use this as a for instance
    Put your mouth on pause put your brain in gear
    Alleyoops as a brass raise your glass and cheer
    As you get on your good foot I hope that you never put
    Your trust in unjust suckas who disgust
    Ways of getting paid by criminal means
    They're having a sale on minimal dreams
    Doomed to fail they caught your tail
    Your butt's in jail, you gets no bail
    The scale was tipped, but you ain't little
    There's a rock and a hard place, you're caught in the middle
    Need a lawyer to litigate some legal dribble
    Now you're back on the streets like it ain't no riddle
    How ling will this last, you seem to love crime
    Today you're out here, tomorrow you do crime
    Word is bond, armed your brain is you
    Yo, the state is cold ready to prosecute
    Oh you think you're smarter, the system's older
    The ace has been dealt, you're now the holder
    The name is Chill Rob, there is a good God
    My rep is not scarred, I won't commit fraud
    Can't say I lied, there's nothing to hide
    I say with much pride "Court is Now in Session"
    Friday night we out playing the corner
    Not because we hoods, cause we wanna
    No drugs being sold, we ain't dirty
    Polaroids in effect, watch the birdie
    Turned around, heard the sounds of sirens
    The boys, they collared me, asked me where I'd been
    I told them that I was right here all night
    Looking at each other they smiled and said "All right
    You think you're smart, you wanna be tough
    Get your ass in the car, you're coming with us"
    I said "To where, for what? I ain't guilty
    My name is Rob G., you just can't milk me"
    Now I'm sitting in a courtroom all day
    I claim I'm innocent but that's what they all say
    But to my brothers lined up in the hallway
    Take in the type of price I might have to pay
    And finally the crime held jails me
    Seems I'm made to escape the daily
    Routine I'm too clean you got nothing on me
    Arrest that sucker for being so corny
    I'll run the truth, make it plain and simple
    Got popped by big shots as big as a pimple
    Snatch him off the street drop him in the can
    Chain him like an animal, forget he's a man
    This might be a little off of some to eat
    But this is food for thought that I speak
    If you can't stand the heat, I think you know the rest
    This is live, not a test, court is in session
    It's a pity the way the city treats the poor
    I got congressmen counsilmen, tell me what are they for
    I write letters, or better, I even give them a call
    But they kick back, cool out in my city hall
    I pay the tax, they max, but they ain't passing off
    They try to beat me, they treat me like they think that I'm soft
    Pure power, the hour is later than you think
    While they're sleeping I'm creeping because I'm on the brink
    Of insanity, vanity keeps my hygene clean
    Stop dissing, listen and you'll know what I mean
    It's not mystery, history keeps repeating itself
    I last longer, I'm stronger, my rhyme's completing itself
    I put the pen to the pad and let the words flow
    I put the mic to my mouth to make your mind grow
    So nighty nighty alrighty, I'm putting heads to bed
    You sound tired you're fired up over what I said
    There's no stopping I'm cold dropping you toy boys
    No bull, I'm hitting you with the dope noise
    Court is in session

    Italo is a great genre and something that I love passionately but in terms of relevance, style, sophistication and good taste it's a long way from conventional

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    You’ll know this one Frankie-

    I could now smell their breath
    They smelt of pubs and wormwood scrubs
    And too many right wing meetings

    madmike I feel much better now, I really do...

    Ok..."To all those with an Oedipus complex, if you don't keep your female terrier on a leash, don't be surprised if you end up with a litter of puppies" Good advice I would say.

    Yeah; there is a level of 'context' required when listening.
    Listening to 'Mixed up in the hague' for the first time was at once enlightening and had me questioning my tastes - now it's firmly my favourite mix ever and IF in my top 5 dj's.

    Not much wrong with Sea Shanties per se.. It's just that there is an unfortunate current vogue , especially in sea ports, for the 'novelty' and 'authenticity', of fifteen middle aged blokes with beards, polo necks and sailor caps, standing about with hands in pockets singing in unison. This is most likely very far from both the dress code, and the singing style of the original work songs.

    Anything that has Kraftwerk and Patrick Cowley on it is a winner in my books.

    Agreed. Was thinking more Doctor's Cat, Mr Flagio, Charlie and the like; to my 90' techno ears they were cheese - now they're among my favourites ever...
