Music Page


Music has always been a big part of my life, even although I am not musical myself. Here are a few odds and ends that will give you some idea about my musical taste.

23 Artists
My 23 favorite musical artists...including groups, solo artists, composers etc. Why 23...well, it's my birthdate number and sometimes I think it's my lucky number.

Beach Boys Lists, Trivia and Statistics.
A fun set of lists that I did some years ago, a few things may be a bit out of date.

Similarly for the Beatles, and similarly a few things may be a bit out of date.

Beach Boys tapes
Some time ago (say 1997)I compiled three tapes of my favorite Beach Boys songs. They were for personal use, although I have sent them to some friends, and some have even become fans! Of course, these days, they are now playlists on my IPod! I purposefully left off some of the classic hits like Good Vibrations , California Girls and I Get Around, although I love these songs, I wanted to show an unknown, and generally more emotional side of the band on these tapes. I included songs which have a strong Beach Boys connection, including solo work and productions by Brian.So here are my notes to the first tape, second tape and third tape, where I list and comment on many of my favorite songs.
