    If anyone is looking for some music to listen to, and hasn't yet discovered Patsy Cline, I highly suggest this cd, "The Patsy Cline Story"
    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Patsy-Cline-Story/dp/B000002O0U"]Amazon.com: Patsy Cline Story: Patsy Cline: Music@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41GTVP7R10L.@@AMEPARAM@@41GTVP7R10L[/ame]

    I grew up on late 60s and 70s rock. Crappy 80s rock. Little better 90s rock. Then some 00s whatever music. And now more open minded to 70s Johnny Cash country, and apparently now willing to go back into the 50s and 60s country with Patsy Cline.

    To me, other than "Crazy" which I had heard either in commericals or movies, it is all new to me. I couldn't stand adults listening to country music when I was a kid. I couldn't wait to get out of the car and away from them, and back to rock LP records in my room. So my memory has a lot of late 60s and 70s country, and I can listen to and like lot of it now (but didn't want to as a kid). But I hadn't ever heard too much country made before the mid 60s.

    I've heard and still don't like lots of the rock made before the late 60s. All the early Beatles and the "Happy Days" rock music is over played in my head, and I don't particulary like that stuff. But the older country music is fresh.

    Anyhow, regardless of genre and era, I do love a good female singing voice. And Patsy Cline has that :)

    Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynne, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Kitty Wells. Welcome to really heartfelt music.

    Yeah, George belongs there, same type of song, just an octave and a half lower.

    Other than "Crazy" (which I believe was written by Willie Nelson - I know he did the 'original'), I never listened to Patsy Cline, very much.

    Then, the movie about her life (sorry. . . don't remember the name - braincramps!), I really started listening to her.


    :thumbsup: Patsy Cline :thumbsup:

    Love Patsy Cline songs.


    I really liked the episode of "Space: Above & Beyond" on Fox in the 1990s that used several of her songs......

    I love most of Patsy Cline's music but "If You've Got Leavin' On Your Mind" really curls my toes. I also love most of Brenda Lee's songs and my favorite all time singer was Roy Orbison. The "Big O" was the very best.

    I like Marilyn Manson and Patsy Cline. Slipknot and Billie Holiday. I should seek some professional help.

    Add Parliament, Black Sabbath, Aretha, Weird Al, Grand Funk, Queen and Johnny Cash and you've got a goodly chunk of my mp3 collection.

    I'm waiting to see my player implode

    We're nothing if not eclectic....

    The really scary thing is that I have some Bone Thugs & Harmony, Snoop Dog, and Run DMC in my collection as well - right next to the Sex Pistols and Count Basie

    If my wife's ever mad at me, I grab a guitar and play some Patsy. She has a wonderful voice and is singing before she knows it, smoothing over any iniquities I may have committed.

    Who with great taste in music wouldn't like Patsy Cline?

    Her voice was soul wrenching.

    I cannot stand rap. The only rap song I like is the one by Blondie.

    Big band, now there's a challenge. That was on when I was a kid, too. So I tried to get away from it, get away from whatever my parents listened to. But some of the snappy stuff is pretty good. Other stuff, too slow, like paint drying, is tough to listen to. Sort of like classical music, too.

    But Patsy Cline, I can indeed listen to her slow stuff. She just sings so well. I read that she had "perfect pitch".

    One of the top two or three greatest female country singers of all time. Fortunately, she was able to rise above the disgusting, generic pop-swill arrangements foisted on her by producer Owen Bradley, who, along with Chet Atkins and a few others of zero artistic taste, essentially destroyed real country music for a decade or two, until Waylon, Willie, Tompall, and Gary Stewart hit back.

    There's just no one who can touch her. I hang on every line.

    Crazy thing is, I can't stand Rap either.

    Basie had some soul in his music. Dig this 1938 song, 'Dark Rapture.' Another great female singer, Helen Hume, adds her voice.
