MUSIC: Songs Of The Day - Halloween Edition (Oct 26): "Edgar Allan Poe" By Lou Reed And "The Raven" By The Alan Parsons Project

This is a song - "Edgar Allan Poe" - from a stage show about Edgar Allan Poe that Lou Reed, formerly of The Velvet Underground, did the music for. If you don't who Lou Reed is, his most famous song is "Take A Walk On The Wild Side".

I also added "The Raven" from The Alan Parsons Project's first album "Tales of Mystery And Imagination", which is a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe.

I add this, just cus I found when looking for a video for Lou Reed's "Edgar Allan Poe"! And it's really funny.

Kind of reminds me of a friend's thought about Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater having a wife he couldn't afford to keep and hiding her remains in a pumpkin shell.

My Internet Radio Stations

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.
