Well, that was an interesting little trip into the weird past.
Today, I think we're going to change directions a bit:
The Cuckold Comes out of the Amery, a traditional Irish fiddle piece.
Now, I noticed something yesterday that was interesting. I was listening to all that stuff from the early 1970s for a good portion of the afternoon and I noticed that it did not have what one might call a positive effect on my mood.
I am interested in whether this reaction is repeated elsewhere, and why. I suppose other people have already done most of the research footwork, but we can indulge in a little pretend science here, just for fun.
Let's play a game. (This may take a few minutes).
Listen to the pieces I posted yesterday carefully, and jot down what sort of emotional effect, if any, it might have on you. Then, take a little palate cleansing break and then listen to the jolly Irish piece above and write down your reactions.
Put them in the commbox, and we will see what we see.
Then maybe we can talk about why.
