It varies but today it's mid-50s doo-wop...Frankie Lymon, Jarmels, Moonglows, Cadillacs, some of the best street corner harmony ever recorded. Fast rhythm Speedo to wake you up, followed by slow ballad Sincerely to mellow out.
And those lyrics...Rama-lama-ding-dong, sh-boom sh-boom
Other days it's jump bands (Louis Jordan) or swing (Benny, Artie and Glenn). And every few months I take in an opera (Wagner and Bizet).
What band did you play in? Mine was Robin and the Rockets. guitar (me), Girl singer (Robin), Bass player (Franklin), and my dell laptop and hundreds of midi sequences to drive the Sound Canvas. By the way we dill all of those tunes except Stairway... I could not ever get the best guitar solo ever done down.

Oh, the good old days! Nowadays, at least here in Sweden, they have edited the new releases of Tintin and taken out Captain Haddocks swearing. It's not PC enough here...
