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

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.Proud to be honored with IACOJ membership.

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.Chris Minick, P.E., Firefighter II

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.

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.NREMT-P\ Reserve Volunteer Firefighter\Reserve Police Officer
