No doubt I’ll be an outlier, with eclectic and varied tastes developed from college radio station DJ days through several decades on the planet. All day today I have been listening to world music/nuevo flamenco on the big surround system as I’ve wrapped presents, written Christmas cards, made up lists of needed items for last rounds of holiday baking.
The playlist: Strunz & Farah vintage stuff, Armik’s latest, Gypsy Kings and Jesse Cook on his Felipe Conde guitar. I developed a love of flamenco while stationed at NAVSTA Rota, Spain, and would attend outdoor festivals where the music started late when it was cooler and you stayed up all night. People would get up and spontaneously dance or do the off-beat syncopated clapping.
Tomorrow in the car as I drive mids to the airport I’ll probably have Shania Twain and Joan Jett for an energetic mix.
I look forward to exploring what other people are listening to. Thank you for starting this thread!
Chill out with this tonight:

, if no one’s in the house, you know I’m dancing to these.
