Interesting!!! :)
Demo - something "hot" and "heavy" - (Your choice!) :)
Framing - same.
D-Wall - same.
"End of the day" - same.
(The 3 groups you bring up - OK, by me!)!

"RF"

(Yes - nice "Hijack" - he, he, he!)
(That's cool - not only did you "Hijack" your own thread - you deleted your own "Hijack"!)
Most excellent!! :)

:laughing:

We always rocked out (is that even an appropriate term anymore) Then I walked in on a drywall finishing crew, real "Biker" types and they were listening to some classic soft rock of the 70's or something.

:laughing:

I tried it the next time I finished (although I draw the line at soft rock) and it really helps get past the little scratches and spills that drywall finishing entails.

I tend to throw things :furious: if I'm finishing without something relaxing....

Loreena McKennitt is another good one for Finishing and Painting

"Tunes on the job-site" ?!?
When I was running framing crews.
We were a diverse group of individuals.
We had a good radio/cassette-player.
Some of our members bought custom-mix tapes - everything.

"C and W", "Blues", "Jazz" "Rock", "Classical", "Reggae", "Heavy Metal", "Mariachi Bands" ....
Everything!! :)
Nobody really cared!
Something to break up the monotony! :)

OK - OK!!
That was probably, way before your time (Whipper-Snapper!) :)
Back in the day, when we had to climb 15,000 feet up the side of a
mountain - just to get to school!!!
We also, had to climb 15,000 feet up, to get back home!!!
(The down-hill run was a little, easier, though :)

Before you sit there - with a dismissive, smug, expression on your face!
(Thinking, to yourself - "Big Deal"!)
We also, had to fight off the "Dinosaurs" - on the way!!!
(That "T-Rex" - ain't very, friendly!)

By the way -
Cassette-player - "8-Track"-player on "steroids"!
So There!! :)

"RF" -
or: as my friends call me -
"Dumb-A$$"!

Linkin Park Waiting for the End
Gotye Somebody that I used to know (getting to much airtime so Im getting sick of it)
Hallelujah Jeff Buckley"s version is my fav
Never ending white light The Grace

that truely is a tough comparison because even though it's the same song it seems to have 2different meanings depending on who is singing it


here's one from Damian Rice that's a contender
