    Thanks to Poety and Hurricane, I thought that it might be fun to share some of our favorite music/musicians.

    I'll get it started:

    I love the Eurythmics,
    Beastie Boys,
    REM,
    Madonna (what did you expect?),
    Diana Krall,
    Meatloaf,
    Bob Segar,
    Violent Femmes,
    Janis Joplin,
    Green Day -- Doogie days!,
    Pretenders,
    Josh Grobin -- though I know he's so "not cool"!,
    INXS,
    Morissey,
    Elvis Costello,
    They Might be Giants,
    Depeche Mode -- my all-time favorite!,
    Melissa Etheridge,
    K.D. Lang,
    ABBA,
    Mama Cass!!!!!!
    And most 80ish disco/techno (again, what did you expect?)!

    Come on, sazi, we're "free associating!" Music is a window in our unconscious.

    Sazi, since there is big debate over whether music dictates behavior, its interesting to know what type of music psychs listen to since we can see if the theory of "influential music" holds true. ie If we have some psychs that actually listen to say --- Ozzy and don't bite heads off bats then hey, perhaps we are disproving the theory? Anyway, I see a very strong association this has with psych in general - hence it should be posted in the psych forum :p

    My groups:

    Sasha
    Radiohead
    Coldplay
    Nina Simone
    Led Zepplin
    Pulp
    Dropkick Murphys
    Keane
    NIN
    Iggy Pop
    Bob Marley
    Black Uhuru
    Franz Ferdinand
    Sex Pistols
    Smashing Pumpkins
    The Art of Noise
    Green Day
    Snow Patrol
    Billy Holiday
    Ella Fitzgerald
    Duke Ellington

    the list goes on and on!

    Oh mighty SAZI,

    We, the plebians, beg for your kind tolerance in this very important thread. We realize that your judgement in these matters passes our mortal understanding, and therefore we totally submit to that judgement. However, if you can grant us this one thread we will never ask for anything again, we'll clean our rooms daily, and we'll burn incense at the SDN cathedral. And remember, everytime we hear Bono sing, a chord of Clapton's guitar, or think about Mr. Bojangles dancing, we'll pause and remember you oh Great One.

    If you don't buy that, then all I can say is : the Pathology forum has a music thread, and we want one too! Pretty please -- I will clean my room!

    So, as you can see:

    1. Music is crucial to religion -- which, I believe, helps to frame our psychees.

    2. Music is instrumental (pun NOT intended, just pointed out) in our family/home lives -- which, I am certain, is a key element in our psychological development.

    BTW, I've never listened to Nina Simone, but ever since I saw the movie "Before Sunset" and Julie Delpy in the last scene, dancing to Nina Simone, I have been meaning to listen to her music. Everyone should see this movie (especially Nina Simone fans). Also helpful to have seen "Before Sunrise" first.

    I have heard thine cries, and as such, and will bow the will of the people. I especially appreciate the tie-in comments made by you, Poety, Public, and the rest of the crew toward psychiatry.

    Given that:
    Out of my CD rack on top of the stereo (Sansui 90-90 receiver; running on a pair of KEFs and NADs through a Kenwood CD player and Pioneer turntable):
    Grateful Dead
    Dylan
    Cake
    Fleetwood Mac
    Korn
    Jethro Tull
    Led Zeppelin
    Neil Young

    Lots, lots more, but I gotta run.
    :horns:

    P.S. I'm starting to get more of a sense of people's personalities. I wouldn't necessarily have pictured some of you listening to that type of music. And yet in other ways, it doesn't surprise me at all. Interesting, huh?

    Hey Banannie, welcome to the psych. forum (AKA, Sazi Land). I totally love The Smiths! I've only heard a couple of things from Echo and the Bunnymen, but I really liked it as well.

    A turntable? That's hardcore old school. In a similar vein, my hubby still has a laserdisc player, because he refuses to part with his collection of 80s music video laserdiscs. Although he is in the process of copying them over to dvd...

    What about our guilty pleasure music - the stuff we like but don't admit to our friends, lest it make us appear less cool? For me, it's Dee Lite. Love 'em. Especially "I had a dream I was falling through a hole in the ozone layer." I wonder what that says about my personality... So is anyone else a closet Backstreet Boys fan or something?

    Ok, I'll go...I'm an 80s metal junkie -- Poison, Cinderella, Motley Crue, Ratt, Warrant, Trixter, Slaughter, etc. Love that stuff!

    Music today is way too serious. Whatever happened to writing songs about drugs, sex, and rock n' roll!?

    Cool! I used to listen to a netradio station called "The Blue Room" that played classic downtempo jazz with trip hop. Perfect combo. Totally different styles of music, but yet they both had the same "feel" y'know? That's where I discovered Portishead, Massive Attack, etc. I saw an album on iTunes last year that consisted of a bunch of remixed classic jazz songs, but I can't remember what it was called so I can't find it to buy it, and it bugs me because I want it...

    Edited to add: I found it! It's called "Verve Remixed." There's a great remix of Nina's "Black is the Color of my True Love's Hair" on Volume 2. And there is also a Motown Remixed Album. :)

    Very nice! I always spun old tunes mixed in on nice beats - Beatles "you know my name" then a hard beat to get everyone started - it was so much fun! :laugh: Perhaps its just the narcissist in me, but theres nothing like making everyone get their groove on ;)

    Radiohead is my all time fav though I must say - I've loved Thom Yorke since hello, he had me from hello :oops: <melting>

    I listen to a lot of brit music too, I think I've definitely faded on the "scene" music though - however sasha will forever be the mastah :p

    I forgot to add Elton John, Tracy Chapman, the Indigo Girls, Natalie Merchant, Beastie Boys, the Cure, the Clash, and any other hardcore 80's group.

    SAZI: So, how are your opinions of us forming now?

    I'm excited to see two Clutch fans on the forum! Let's see. My interests are too long to list, but today on the Thanksgiving drive I listened to: Stars, Master P, Deftones, Weezer, Neutral Milk Hotel, Queens of the Stone Age. If only I could spend my interviews talking about Clutch and QOTSA...

    Hey--what ever happened to Frasier and Niles Crane sitting around and sipping chardonnay while listening to Mozart?

    Whatever has become of the psychiatry we were first attracted to???? :confused:

    I listen to Mozart too! But I prefer to do it at the symphony rather than in my apartment...

    Besides, we have to have more diverse musical tastes, so that we may better understand the diverse patient population we'll be exposed to in residency. ;)

    I'm here! Tomorrow is my birthday; so my entire family decided that we should spend the weekend in Memphis -- thinking of you Hurricane.

    Which interview do you have coming up -- is it the Florida interview? You know that you will be amazing! I have never understood why the most outgoing people seem to have the most doubts. I watched a Biography special on Sigmund Freud; so if you'll PM me with your most current dreams, I'm sure that I would be well qualified to analyze your situation!! :laugh:

    Well, I gotta go. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. OPD, are you loving that weather!? It sucks being in Arkansas -- we had 50 degrees today. :D

    I worry that I applied to too many good programs, and that even though everyone says I have nothing to worry about, I'll get back a failing step 2 score or something, and not match anywhere. Yes, I know this is irrational, but I still worry about it. But what really gets me worked up is reading all of these mile-long lists of "tips" for interviewing. I figured if I just tried to relax and be myself, all would be good. Silly me. :rolleyes:

    I'm sure we'll all be fine. Mosche, have a fried dill pickle in my honor. :D

    I love fried pickles and fried green tomatoes -- does that make me a hick? I hope not, I started wearing shoes to work; so I will be very disappointed if all that effort hasn't improved my social class! :laugh:

    Hey Hurricane, I completely understand being nervous, as you well know, I'm a nervous nelly :oops: However I'm SURE you are going to match. I'm going on 12 interviews (15 invites) what about you Hurricane, Mosche?


    - are we all off topic again? I really feel for those visiting this forum and not being able to follow along as our thread diversions persist!

    I'll add Snow Patrol to keep it kind of on topic.

    I just heard a song by "Ashley Simpson"? I don't know if she sings it or not, but I really don't like her. I do really feel sorry for her and Jessica, however., What's ya'lls diagnosis on their relationship with their father? I get the ibby gibbies everytime that I see him with either of his daughters!!

    Poety, Hurricane, or other females, does their relationship seem normal from your perspectives?

    Perhaps I'm the only one who has any issue (it wouldn't be the first time ;) ), but it really makes me nauseous. :barf:

    I thought that, perhaps, I was just reading too much into their relationship. I'm glad to know that someone else finds it "weird".
