I love YouTube music videos! CMT, and MTV may have went to "reality" shows, but I still like a good music video.

One of my things I like to do is compare an original recording to a cover by another artist. Some of them are pretty danged good too. I was a Conway Twitty fan many years ago, and really enjoyed his music and his voice. He did a song that to me one of his best ever, "Goodbye Time". Years later, Blake Shelton did a remake of it, and surprising, he did the song justice. The first time I heard it on the radio, I was blown away by his rendition, and how well he did the song. I think Conway would have been pleased!

Country music, just ain't country without Merle Haggard. One of my favorite Merle songs.  :rocknroll2:

Music has been a huge part of my life. It has seen me through good times and bad times. Through two divorces, and three marriages! So many songs can tell a story about a certain point in my life, and I can hear that song on the radio, or wherever, and it can recall the memories of that time period, and the events that the song reminds me of.

Ship, most excellent!  :rocknroll2:

I think I'm going to feed my need for some retro late 1970's and early 1980's era rock music!  :rocknroll2:

My daughter got me for fathers day a gizmo that connects to my home WIFI and now all I have to do is say "Hey Google " play me Jail House  Rock
and away it plays .
I can ask it to play anything and it pumps it right out. So Cool.

And spies on you. 
Apparently these home automation devices DO send all your request to a server for storage and many listen and send all you say.

I have such an evil mind sometimes!  :th_thicon_lol:

Just think of the jokes that one could play with such a device. Like, "Alexa, what is the best way to get rid of a body?". Or, "Alexa, how do you brew up some good meth?"

my Wife's SIL sent to us 2 of those Alexa thingies for Christmas - if I want to know what time it is I'll look at a clock - the devices are sitting in their boxes, somewhere (but I may have tossed 'em in the trash)

If everyone that had one put a radio tuned to sports next to it and left it on, their servers would overload and their service would degrade.... :scream3:

If a person had a talking parrot, they could get the parrot to ask Alexa questions!  :rocknroll2:

"Polly want  a cracker?"  :th_thicon_lol:

Would an Alexa and an Echo carry on a conversation?

Up until about 8 pm, we were listening to the rain drip off the roof!  :wave1:

Now, got the radio tuned to a classic country station.  :rocknroll2:
