(I know I’ve been posting a lot of videos recently. Once I recover from whatever this plague is from which I am suffering, I’ll get back to actually writing again. In the meantime, please pass me a tissue and a gallon jug of Nyquil)
“You tell me the kind of music you like to listen to…and I’ll tell you what kind of person you are.” — Frank Garlock
I found this gem over at The Basement Rug (an awesome site for lovers of vinyl, btw). It’s from an LP record entitled The Big Beat ~ A Rock Blast in which Frank Garlock among other things claims to have to have listened to and analyzed more than 2000 rock songs in a single week.
If you can sit through all 83 minutes of this amazing performance, you’re a better person than I am.
Some notable bites
13:30 listening to good music can increase your eyesight by 25%
13:56 we learn that plants are killed by rock music.
16:47 cutting edge research from 1971 shows that…well…something or another.
20:04 department stores use music to hypnotize their customers into buying more
21:31 Music played for mental patients helped them improve only if the musician was mentally stable. Music played by mentally unstable people made mental patients worse.
On a side note, watching Frank with Spanish voice-over is incredibly trippy.
