    Nooooooooooow that I have your attention, I'm curious, what does everyone listen to while their clacking away hopelessy here at the old Firehouse Forums? As for me, I'm eclectic. No I don't see things backward or swear involuntarily. I listen to a variety of music. Currently it's Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata...which will be followed by AC/DC, then Alan Jackson, then No Doubt (Gwen Stefani...grrrr), then 80's music...I love 80's....then Mozart.


    So baby...what are yoooooooou listening to? Mmmmmmmmmm...yeah...I thought so baby....Barry White

    Default I'm listening to the sounds of silence.

    No, not Simon & Garfunkle, the real silence. I have the house to myself tonight. The dogs are asleep and everyone else is gone. If the pager doesn't start talking, the next sound I'll hear will be the birds chirping in the morning. Definitely one of life's little blessings.

    Usually listen to 10,000 Maniacs or John and Mary. Today I was listening to Elastica. I have a wide range of taste in music and the guys at work think I'm nuts. Sometimes it's acoustic music, sometimes folk, sometimes Irish nationalistic music, sometimes Irish drinking songs. Lately work has been a pain so I've been listening to mild "heavy metal." People know whether to come into my office or not by what is on the CD player.

    The first half of the week, during the day, I am at work, so I hear nothing but phones ringing and people talking. When I am home, it is a real struggle to get computer time, what with the wife, a 15 year old, a 11 year old and 4 year old all trying to get on the computer.
    makes it tough at times.

    Have a 6 speaker surrond system off my "Work" computer. about 24 hours worth of MP3 sound, so its a case of fire it up and start work.
    anything, as long as its not rap, goes.

    Christmas music. (it is so hot I need SOMETHING to keep my mind off of the heat!!)
    Seriously, though. I love music. I literally listen to every genre of music known to man. Right now in my CD player: Enya, Wyclef Jean, U2, Nonpoint, Clint Black, and Tony Bennett.

    What am I wearing... well it's this little red sild spagetti strap... ooops... that isn't really what we're talking about. Sorry about that.

    If it's old it's gold!

    Most of the time, (when not at work listening to people B*tch and whine, about their aches, pains and why it took so long to get to them)I listen to old rock, but periodically will throw in some country, classical, new rock, etc. Pretty much anything goes, but NEVER RAP.

    Fav songs would have to be (other then the ones previously redone for the forums by none other then myself) Shook Me All Night Long, Sweet Home Alabama, November Rain, I was made for lovin' you, Smoke on the Water, Wild Thing... the list could go on forever. Man I'm glad I've got a burner

    usually i listen to the ems radio behind me. then i must decide if answering the crew is more important or should i read the next post. we can't listen to any music radios in here, can barely watch TV despite everyone calling 911 for a chest pain or traffic accident. geesh, come on people it's a minor problem. take the car to the repair shop, it can be fixed. just kidding. i prefer rock and the sort, also starting to like celtic music.

    Wow Stayback, may I say that I'm impressed? (And, trust me, it takes a lot to impress me *g*) You just named all my favorites, Beethoven and all. Especially the Moonlight Senada. I always found it somehow excruciatingly beautiful and tragic that he created the most equisite music on earth and yet, he was, for the most part, unable to hear it.

    I also happen to like ol' AC/DC, Live, Simon and Garfunkel, and a lot of old blues like Satchmo and Billie Holiday. Of course, I live in Redneck Ville so of course, there has to be country music in there somewhere, lol.

    Let's see....
    What's on the stereo depends on my mood, right now I am listening to the premier classic rock station out of St. Louis, MO (k-she 95). I am also monitoring 14 different channels on the base radio and another 6 on the scanner....911 phone, business phone, cell phone, and three other dispatchers talking about chocolate chip cookie recipes!
