MUSIC: Song Of The Day - Halloween Edition (Oct 16): "Eve Of The War" By Jeff Wayne

This is the first track "Eve Of The War" from "Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of War Of The Worlds". It's a mouthful, but it's good stuff. This guy, Jeff Wayne - session musician and producer - got Justin Heyward of The Moody Blues, Philip Lynott the lead singer of Thin Lizzy, and somehow Richard Burton, and put out a very faithful - if truncated - musical version of the H.G. Wells novel.

The classic rock station in my home town played it for a couple years on Halloween when it came out in the 70s.

From the YouTube comments:

I heard this at about the age of 7 in a dark room with an open fire flickering - oh god, I s*at myself!

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
