I love I surrender! I can listen to the 1986 - 2011 Anthology album, all day, long, for several weeks, consecutively. Although, I love all of his earlier music, albums, with Japan, and other bits and pieces with David Bowie, Brian Eno, Ryuichi Sacamoto, who is one of my all time favorite composers, and the list goes on. I suppose you could say, that I am obsessed with his music.


I'm a die hard David Bowie and Japan fan (besides The Cure). I am keen of Bowie's pre-eighties work though. On the other hand, I think Japan probably one of the best (if not the best) band of the 1980's. Sylvian + Sakamoto is a brilliant thing. "Forbidden Colours" is an awesome song, that was a great collaboration.

My sentiments are the same as yours^, verbatim. You are the first person I've met apart from my real life friend, Elizabeth, who shares the same taste in music. Do you ever post in any of the other, music threads? Perhaps we could start a thread for the Genre, and sub-genres, although, I wouldnt put David Sylvian, or any of the artists we've thus far, conversed over, into any specific Genre, I supose. Have you heard the new music that Sylvian and Sacamoto have just released? I've only had a chance to listen to two tracks, but I find them exceptional. Please forgive me, if I am too expressive. I do get carried away when it comes to music. Nice conversing with you!

Glad to meet you. It's always a pleasure to find someone with things in common.

I don't choose particular threads, I mean, I post wherever I feel like I have something to add. I may have posted in some music threads, I am not sure.

Can't see why not.

Yes, Sylvian is such an unique musician he won't fit specific categories. This sounds a bit cliché I know but it's true. He's a very eclectic artist. I remember there was this thesis a graduate musician wrote on Japan and Sylvian, it must be online somewhere yet. A very good piece of work, I really recommend the read. It covers his work in great depth.

I haven't had the pleasure as of yet, unfortunately.

Yes I do but I try to switch it up or else I may end up getting sick of it which I don't want.

I've been listening to mostly soundtracks from animes lately.

Recently, I've been listening to this Disco song by Faith, Hope & Charity called To Each His Own. I fell in love with this song the first time I listened to this song. Prior to this song, the song I was listening to on repeat was Hugh Cornwell's Another Kind of Love and Siouxsie and the Banshees' song Peek A Boo.

I do, and I think I have for as long as I've been able to control what I listen to. I just put the song on infinite replay and it NEVER gets old for me. Even years later.

For me right now it's Heavy by Linkin Park. They've been my favorite band since I discovered them 16 years ago. But it can happen with any song I've taken to. I only listened to this song today, no other music.

Listening the same song whole life would be the most boring thing in my life.

Hi MagicNight, I neglected to return here, so, I am just, now, viewing your ^post. Thank you for your responses. I regret not seeing this sooner, as I would have been happy for the opportunity to carry on this conversation. If you happen to return, or, you are around, I would be very interested in reading the graduate student's thesis on Japan and Sylvian, if you could point me in the right direction. Was this student at college with you, or, are you a teacher/professor? Hope all is well in your world!
~Thank you, again

I kind of listened to Trick Of The Tail by Genesis like 20 times in a row.
Then I listened to Yesterday by The Beatles like 10, 15, maybe even 20 times in a row.

I do this, although I tend to do it more with albums than with songs since I've gotten older.
