What Are You Listening To? (Part III) 2019

Nightwish (symphonic metal) - anything from the live gigs with Floor Jansen singing. Wacken 2013, Wembley 2016, are both good and Floor is a vocal marvel.
Listening to Steve Hackett playing some of the Genesis stuff as well (trying to learn Hairless Heart and Firth of Fifth).

Is this like the Coke vs Pepsi debate? I think not…
Tarja Turunen forever!!! :slight_smile:

I saw them once in the Netherlands back in 2005. Don’t know about Floor but Tarja had mad vocals

I’m not saying this is the best example of her voice, but it’s certainly a very good sampling. It’s the first song from Nightwish that caught my attention.

I have never listened to them, but I did because you posted it.
As you know, I am mostly a sax player, believer that it can go with
anything, even in church [which I have been honorably accused of].
I grabbed one of my horns, loaded this vid in the living room on a
larger TV/stereo system, and filled in with the alto, especially in the bridge.
My woman was downstairs [farting around] when I cranked it up, and
when she came upstairs, commented on how she liked it…
she thought the horn was part of the video.
I have gotten pretty good at foolin’ that woman over the 700 years that
we have been married.
When she replayed the video, didn’t hear the horn, she rolled her eyes at me,
seemingly in disgust.
No kudos to me, but hey, that is how marriage is…700 yrs of the ball and chain…
[if you are lucky, fortunate]

Saw the Mahavishnu at Masonic Temple, Detroit 1974. Front row balcony center. The best seats in the house. Amazing.

That’s a great memory to hang to!

:grinning: It was Tarja that got me started listening to Nightwish. She was good, but I like Floors voice better for nearly all the songs I’ve heard and the emotion she puts into the songs.
Of course this could be discussed for ever (and often is!) … and then “Annette was best…” appears and off we go again :sunglasses:

She certainly has one hell of a good voice - thanks for the video!

Perfect chill-out music to keep your head cool when you’re mixing and doing single flavor tests :slight_smile:
