Listen To The Music...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, September 06, 2007

Holy Crap.... So, Anndi challenged us and we responded...and we were shocked by the variety that has appeared her on THE COUCH ...

First off, by month, it did surprise us that music did not appear here for so long...

The first music was video clips...
The first true audio was Stevie Wonder - "Happy Birthday" for Dad on 11/20/06
The month with the most audio was December 2006, as we put up a whole Holiday tribute mix for the days before Hanukkah and Christmas.

319 songs (some of them videos)...

There were some songs which, when posted did not work, they WERE NOT counted...

Now, by artist....we don't think anyone can say that we do not supply variety here on THE COUCH...well, if you could see our music collection, that would come as no surprise and 100% of the music we have presented here is actually in our collection whether it be vinyl, tape or digital...

YES, there definitely are repeats, but a tune is a tune is a remember....when sitting on THE COUCH, you can always "LISTEN TO THE MUSIC".........

Whether it be big band, jazz, pop, r & b, psychedelica, rock and roll....if it has a beat, if it has a tune...we have it and will share...

Someone you do not see below? Let us know...we can almost guarantee we have it or can find it and put it on THE COUCH for lives here and will continue to do so...

Are you ready?

19 Of Your Sparks

  1. I didn't get my vote in yesterday, but I figured Elvis, Allman Brothers, and Grateful Dead had to be in the top three.

    I mean, c'mon - this is YOU we're talking about!

  2. I'm with Desert... we know you oh so very well..


  3. Maggie Moo Says:
  4. Yeah, I'm surprised about the Allman Brothers!!!

  5. Schmoop Says:
  6. I dont see The Cars on there anywhere!!

  7. Sparky Duck Says:
  8. wow, you can tell where your musical leanings are from this list.

  9. God, you have excellent powers of research. I wanted to go through and do a tally of how many times each curse word appears in my blog but with about 420 posts, I just don't know if I have the

  10. Anndi Says:
  11. Now you know me well enough to realize that a remark about inviting me to research your music just wouldn't get a rise out of me.. ask me to research how many hockey players in the NHL are Canadian... well.. that I would do (wait I did.. bwahahahahaha) just to prove a point...


    I am responsible for this post.. hehehe..

    Of course, there is more Claptn than anyone. I collapse all occurences...

  12. SONGBIRD: yet the DEAD are hardly represented at all... gonna have to fix that

    DIXIE: Hi my name is frank.... SMOOCH

    MAGS: Well, you know with Tuneage Tutelege and all...and we have not done one on the Allman Brothers...or the DEAD!

    MATT-MAN: We weill have to rectify (NOT rectum dude) that...vroom vroom

    SPARKY: All over the board, ain't I...and there are so many artists i have not even touched on

    108: It is my TYPE-A ...well, I bet I know the one word that would win! LOL

    ANNDI: Yes, you did do that dear...but I am surprised as my ace Tuneage compatriot, that you would not take the challenge, though I know your time is limited! Collapsing occurences is NOT allowed...too many people appear on too many albums, and i bet you missed the fact that he was on the Howlin' Wolf songs!

  13. AtriaBooks Says:
  14. You clearly need to step up your Sinatra.

  15. DOC: See and i thought you would be asking for some Warren g. bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  16. Psst...U2!!

  17. Ralph Says:
  18. Ah, I enjoy the Doobies these days as much as I did in college in the seventies. 'Listen to the Music' is great, as are others, my favorites include 'Ukiah", 'Road Angel" 'Sweet Maxine' and 'Double Dealin Four Flusher'. The Doobie Bros. evolved, never static. Still love 'em...

  19. LOL at Starrlight - she's not predictable at all, is she?

    I vote for more Alice Cooper, or more Doors, or The Who, or...

  20. Mimi Lenox Says:
  21. I would have guessed Taylor Hicks.

  22. Meribah Says:
  23. Wow! You're more OCD than the puppy...and that's scary! LOL :P

  24. Unknown Says:
  25. 3 Beatles and 2 Monkees and 3 Taylor Hicks? Very interesting...

  26. STARRLIGHT: On the list my friend...

    RALPH: Thanks for sitting on The Couch...I saw them in 1975 in Syracuse..great show...

    SONGBIRD: LOL surprised you did not ask for the Bono! On the list all of them

    MIMI: LOL very few of him...

    MERI: NOT OCD...just ummm...well....organized? heheheheh

    DANA: Not bad numbers for them compared to many others...

  27. Yay!!!! Let me know if you need any MP3's ;)

  28. Julie Says:
  29. Now wait a minute! Where did the Van Morrison go? I know I saw some on here.
