I'm pretty sure everyone remembers that track

Why is it that all of you think the only people who are getting the Q are all under 30 years old? :( When my students used to ask me what kind of music I liked, I told them, "just about all kinds." When they asked if I liked "Rap," I said I liked MUSIC. My generation grew up with Rock, but I enjoy the Big Band Sound, Latin Rhythm, the Standards, etc. But Rap? NO! Now if you want to get your blood going, play this(when I played it for my high school students, they went nuts :D):


Of course, if you have your favorite honey in the car, then turn up the bass a little:

I couldn't even think about what first song to play inside the Q50 I would honestly be too busy fiddling with all the cool features. But If I had to pick a song for the moment this would be the one.

Rick Ross - Devil In A New Dress


And to some that are excited might be blasting this.. ;)

I'm not into Rap either. My Drive home from the dealer song is going to be a hot recording of "Growing up in Hollywood Town" by Amanda McBroom. This YouTube recording doesn't quite do it justice compared to the original Sheffield Direct to Disc recording but you will get the idea. By the way, it goes very well with a Venetian Ruby Q50.

You sound like every stereotype of every White guy over 60 years old---do you realize this? :p

The fact that you've seemingly grouped all rap into a single genre the way you just did sorta annoys me---it's hard to understand the concept that not all rap is the same--but it's no different than saying that not big band, rock, country...etc is not the same either.

I "grew up" with rap, but that still doesn't mean that I still don't love rock, metal, alt, prog, or any other kinds of music either. If you don't like it, that's fine, but I don't think it has a lot to do with what you grow up with or not. However, I'm not sure if it affects how close minded one might be to any other genre out there, claiming if it qualifies as "music" or not. That sort of mindset is downright ridiculous in my book.

But I digress. :p

As I stated, I like and listen to all kinds of music, I have a feeling that I have a wider variety of music in my library than most of you. I can go from Patsy Cline, to the Doors, to Neil Diamond, to Enya, Perry Como, Otis Redding, the Doobie Brothers, Glenn Miller, Melissa Manchester, Lou Rawls, the Beatles, Andre Kostelanetz, Bonnie Raitt, etc. and back again, but "Rap" turns me off completely. O.K., I never could take heavy metal either. If that is what you like, that's fine, but you shouldn't try to pigeon hole me - you'd be wrong. I played that Boogie Woogie clip for my students because I knew that they had no experience with that kind of music, and as I said, they went nuts over it. There was a time that all people in the family listened to the same thing because there was only one TV set(and stereo), so the children(and adults) heard and learned about the many genres. Now, there's almost no cross-over, and the younger generation is, in general, losing the disconnect with the culture of this country. I dearly hope that those of you who are still young will expose your kids to as wide a field of this country's culture as possible. O.K., back to the music.

Bonnie Raitt playing a Talking Heads song? Now I've seen it all.

So, diverse music challenge eh Selzini? Try this for my test drive playlist.

1. Bob Crosby and the Bobcats: Way Back Home
2. Ted Nugent: Cat Scratch Fever
3. Goldie Lookin' Chain: Your Missus is a Nutter
4. Pink Floyd: Money (great stereo separation and placement)
5. Blur: Chemical World
6. Plastikman: Spastik (or Helikopter)
7. Talking Heads: Drugs
8. Anything from JJ Cale's legendary album "5"

I could keep going for hours but I don't want to bore anyone to tears. I listen to just about everything minus old ladies singing country and gospel.

:eek::eek: Man, that's going WAAAAY back.:D
There was a game, Fallout 3, that was set in post-apocalyptic America where everything was nuked in the 50's. There's a radio station you can listen to called Galaxy News Radio. Only vinyl records survived so all the music was from the 20's-50's. Legendary soundtrack. I sent my 92 year old grandpa a CD of the soundtrack from that game and it brought tears to his eyes. He remembers dancing to those songs during WW2. My mom remembers those songs being played around the house when she was little.

/cool story bro :cool:
