    I agree completely. Music transcends culture, creed, language, even time.
    Think of all the creators of music who are gone, yet still with us via recordings or via their music being played by new generations.

    Thank all the gods that Aretha is on vinyl!

    Rarely do I say anything worth repeating so steal away, my friend....

    My internet is sucking right now, I expect to high volume usage since a lot of folks are at home with nothing to do, I tried replying sooner but it's been a tricky process, was going to post another song and everything but, ugh slow internet reminds me of being back in middle school and waiting for hours some days just to sign on...

    omg, me too! After a while, since it took about an hour for one song to download with my connection (yes I know it was wrong but what are ya gonna do?), I just stopped doing it but I still hung out in the chat room because I remember it was unmonitored for a while and we would talk about everything in there. Those olden days.....

    This is one of my top ASMR triggers. I also have some machine sounds and a few more "traditional" triggers.

    You weren't the first to notice Tommy:



    Lyrics :

    Something's at the edge of your mind
    You don't know what it is
    Something you were hoping to find
    But you're not sure what it is
    Then you hear the music
    And it all comes crystal clear
    The music does the talking
    Says the things you want to hear

    I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free
    Got the magic power of the music in me
    I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free
    Got the magic power of the music in me

    She climbs into bed
    She pulls the covers overhead
    And she turns her little radio on
    She's had a rotten day
    So she hopes the DJ's
    Gonna play her favorite song

    Makes her feel much better
    Brings her closer to her dreams
    A little magic power
    Makes it better that it seems
    A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave.

    "Mongkol is a 61-year-old former logging elephant. His captive-held life was spent hauling trees in the Thai forest. His body shape is deformed through hard labor, he lost his right eye and tusk in this brutal logging practice. Mongkol was rescued and brought to Elephants World to spend the rest of his days relaxing peacefully in freedom by the River Kwai. I discovered Mongkol is an extremely gentle, sensitive elephant who enjoys music, especially this slow movement by Beethoven which I play to him occasionally in the day and night."

    Steve Roach is a master at soothing ambient pieces, here are some longform recently released pieces:



    I was actually set to see him live in NYC this month but obviously that's been postponed, currently till July.

    Ravel's Bolero entrances me every single time.
    I close my eyes...and I get completely removed from reality, fascinated, following the gradual buildup of music like I'm looking at an endless Oriental procession...colorful clothes and exotic smells...flame-eaters...belly dancers...followed by pumas on a leash...tigers and cheetahs....culminating in two giant elephants...and then a sharp nothing.
    Never ceases to make me forget for a few minutes whatever boring or irritating something I've been doing the moment before the music started LOL
