Wasn't sure what to think of James Blake and the indie hype over him, but this video and song is sticking in my head. Superb video, great song. (He reminds me of Cassandra Wilson the deep voiced female jazz singer).

Since I was re-reading this thread I have just finished listening to Master Musicians of Jajouka's "Apocalypse across the Sky", Julie Brown singing "I'm a Blonde."    Triplash, while I didn't look up the song, I believe that if I had a soggy bottom, I too might be a man of constant sorrow.   Instead I took myself down Memory Lane, mostly via Steeleye Span, chortling over their "New York Girls" song and others until stopping at "Saucy Sailor" to share with you guys here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlkI677q-FE

Oh, you sure would be a man of constant sorrow. You'd see trouble all your days.
You'd even bid farewell to old Kentucky, the place where you were born and raised.
The place where youuuuuuu were born and raised.

Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

Thou art AWESOME, Triplash!!!!   Thanks for the link, since I had totally forgotten this song, the band's name but NOT that incredible movie!!!!  It's true, tho, Nobody Knows The Trouble I've (We've) Seen!  (I happen to like this version by Louis Armstrong....  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHFveRxXfM4   )

I owe Healix' and Floride's songs a spin when I get back (got those early Sunday a.m. plans, ya know) but thanks to YouTube I am now listening to this and hope you might also enjoy "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as performed by Israel IZ Kamakawiwo'ole (man, I hope I spelled that correctly)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1bFr2SWP1I  Enjoy!!!   :)

If you've never seen the movie, it is a must see. Star studded and funny as heck.

I used both John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith as seeds for Pandora.  The variety is pretty good it comes up with!

/Now I have Explorers soundtrack going on in my head.  Jerry was the man.  So is John, sure, but Jerry... he did some STUFF, man...

Re: being more active on Titan: Good!    8)  Re: pangs of grief, we are all there with you in spirit!  I spoke with one of my CoH buddies by phone last night who like me is disabled and he was glad that neither of us is letting our friendship drop just because we can't log in, and while his Mac won't play DDO (where some of our SG mates went), my gaming anhedonia is such that I just don't enjoy any computer games at all any more.  (Thanks, NCSoft!  You've given me a lot more free time for non-MMO activities, as well as saving me my monthly subscription fee.)  Anyway, ReplicatorFifth, Titan Network is definitely the place to cheer up!!!   We have games, silliness, commiseration sessions, constructive fan-action, and probably soon virtual Costume Competitions from the clever kewl kids who know how to import images and get their costume creator, demorecord etc to sit up and do tricks.  Me, I am low tech, but I marvel and appreciate so much what fans here offer and share with one another in humor and goodwill as well as the incredible technical accomplishments.  (Okay, maybe I am not qualified to use the word "incredible" but from where I sit at my keyboard, it might as well be magic what these I.T.-savvy wizards of all ages can do.)

On to the O.P.  Among the music that cheers me up is this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-XBqOqHDsg  When I was, like 9 years old, I would listen to this and imagine myself as a superhero flying, shooting energy bolts, etc. and performing other acts of derring-do usually against the backdrop of whatever recent original series Star Trek episode I had seen, or films, like Planet of the Apes (i especially liked fighting the "bad guy" gorillas in that movie alongside Charleton Heston's Taylor character, tho in my imagination, unlike Taylor, I was fully clothed, had a cape, and wore rollerskates, even tho I could fly, and rescued him regularly from their nets when, in memory, he got to the line "Take your hands off me, you filthy ape!")  Anyway, another good song, imo, for the active imagination is from Side Two and the final cut on Wendy Carlos' Switched On Bach album.  This early Moog synthesizer may sound rough and loud by today's refined standards; however, if you let it, i bet you can also envision yourself flying with or without lights streaming or flashing by.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6I33iW1kmw   LOL, i bet like a lot of people, i invented in my head what Walt Disney showed us in the film Fantasia--only I didn't see Fantasia until I was in college.   Happy memories of happy daydreams!  Enjoy!  :)

It's all Triplash's fault (from this thread http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,7270.msg115750.html#msg115750 wherein I keyed in on the word Blue) and hence am now listening to this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C1vJ2Z8aI0 "Am I Blue" by Hoagy Carmichael with Lauren Bacall from To Have and Have Not.
