Got up around 7:30 this morning, which is odd because I'm on vacation, but it's very hard to sleep in in So Cal with this heat wave. It was a little over 80 degrees when I got up. Yuck. Anyways, I was kinda bored this morning and didn't want to turn on the tv, so I decided to crank up some music. My neighbors must love me. . .

Was in the mood for something different this morning and put on Nelly Furtado's "Folklore." During the last song, "Childhood Dreams," I noticed the woofers on my MAs were going spastic. Switched my sub on and started the song over again and felt my room vibrate. Some deep organ notes on this one. I don't know how deep, but the kind you feel and not hear.

Does any else know of "popular" music that features notes that warrant the use of a sub? Most of the time I feel I'm not missing much to the music without it.

Ha Ha. For a minute there you got me looking through my cd collection for some CCR, and I'm thinking what part of that song has bass?

This heat is making me very slow.

Set myself up for that one, didn't I?

Yep, that 80 deg in the morning stinks. We live in STx, southwest of Houston, and have been in a miserably humid state for a while. But unlike your neck of the woods, it's pretty much normal.

As for some deep bass, I don't know if this is your cup of tea but I recently played the Blood Flowers cd by the Cure and man does that thing go down. Like yours, the sub was spastic. Even if you don't like the music, I recommend borrowing it just for the workout.

Thanks, donjuanmiguel. I only have one Cure cd, their last one, but I won't mind adding a few more. Never really got into them when I was in jr high--high school. I don't know why, though.

The humidity part is the real killer. Yesterday a rainstorm hit the local mountains, but made it muggy down here. Right now it's 102 in the shade. I can't wait, August 1st I'll be moving into an apartment equiped with AC. Right now I just have fans pushing warm air around. I hate dripping with sweat when all I'm doing is sitting around reading a book. This morning I contemplated driving around in my car with the AC running, but with the price of gas these days. . .So instead I went to the supermarket and spent some extra time in the frozen food section. No joke. They had Dreyer's Grand on sale--2 for $6. Took my time deciding which flavors.

When Ian and Tom and Steve were still designing prototypes of the new DSP subwoofers, we cued up Avril Lavigne to demo to my (young) cousins. There were two or three notes in Skaterboi none of us had ever heard before, and they went nuts.

The Cowboy Junkies on either the Trinity Sessions or Lay It Down album have some a few songs with really low notes.

Sorry I can't be more specific about which songs but it's been a while since I've listened to these CD's and my memory isn;t what it used to be.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far.

I'm thinking it may be fun to go and buy an actual pipe organ cd. Give me a good excuse to put the port plug back in the Hsu and see how much of my "popcorn" acoustic ceiling I can shake loose.

I always throw this one out when I see posts similar to this...in fact, I include it on my demo disc that I take around when auditioning speakers. The band is called The Books. The second song, "Read, Eat, Sleep", on this album has notes that start right at the :52 second mark...I don't know what "instrument" (it may be digital) created them, but they do the same thing you speak of...lots of movement from the drivers of some speakers, but no sound. But then, you play it with a sub and it's a nice chest massage.

"The Books"
They are on my list of cds to purchase. Read about bands on the net and if they look good I add them to my growing "Sticky." If not a Mac user, it's like an electronic post-it. Cuts down on the scrap pieces of paper my desk seems to accumulate.

Thanks, csmith.

Anything by Sting, basically. I would avoid the latest album unless you enjoy poorly mastered overly hot stuff, though. Good songs, but geez...

On the first Nelly Furtado CD there is a song that goes really low too, it is audible though. Can't remember the song, I gave the CD away. I think I put it on my computer gotta make a copy of it, it was really a good CD.

pretty much any disc by the Beastie Boys has got good LF notes. especially "B-Boy Boiullibase" (sp?) on Paul's Boutique!

I resent that comment.

It's not overly bassy, but it does make use of the bass guitar moreso than other albums I have heard have. Queensryche - Empire, especially track 4(Della Brown).

Actually it seems there are a lot of kids today that are into some *older* stuff than I ever was... but I donno about John Denver, come on now.

Beastie Boys is a definite, I'd say PB is their least bass'y album too (although their best IMO).

Used to like John Denver back in the 70s; had a few of his albums. He even had a pretty good TV show.

Only really bad thing I ever heard about him is that he had a hard time keeping his feet off the rudder pedals while changing fuel tanks.

Back when I was in High School in the late Eighties there wasn't a whole lot to choose from music-wise. This was before the whole grunge scene exploded. New Wave and Pop were dying down, and the hair bands reigned supreme. I had my fair share of these albums--Whitesnake, Poison, etc.--but I wanted something else. Right next to my high school there was a Wherehouse. One day I was browsing the cassettes looking for something, and was pretty dissappointed with the popular selection, when the proverbial light bulb came on over my head. For some strange reason it occured to me that there was a lot of great music from the '60s. My parents had a couple of albums by these guys called "The Beatles" that were pretty popular back in the day. Mind you, I was a pretty naive kid and had no sense of the history of music. On a whim I picked up "Revolver" because the cover was pretty cool. While walking home I popped the tape in my portable cassette player and was totally blown away. That was the moment that changed my musical outlook. From that point on I wanted to discover all the great music from the past, and here, umpteen years later, I'm still journeying. Fun stuff, that first moment of discovery.

INANE kinda reminded me of that with his comment. Thanks, dude.

Not fast music by any measure, but Jack Johnson has a fair amount of bass mixed into his albums. The first two are very good. You might also want to check out Ben Harper.
Or ignore me as these are two of my favorites right now and I take any excuse to mention their names.

popular music that has bass... hmm not quite to sure on that one, but if you want to check out some serious bass, listen to "drums & bass" artists such as: dj dara, dieselboy, ak1200, technical itch... those will get your walls rumbeling for sure. also any metal that has double bass pedals is amazing especially if you have a fast accurate sub... songs from fear factory, arch enemy, insomnium, shadows fall, are absoultly amazing... lol i doubt anyone hear was heard of any artist i just mentioned....

I was with you for one of them. It's where I first paid attention to Jack Johnson. I've been a convert since. I wish they would play somewhere else though. I don't really like the Greek Theater very much.

Massive Attack use a lot of bass, though they are not for everyone. Trip-hop, supposedly...I dunno, I like them when I'm in the mood to relax and/or feel some bass (relaxing to deep bass doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, but a lot of the music is laid-back). They write a lot of longer, moody songs which are all pretty bass heavy, but some that stick out are:
"Angel" (from "Mezzanine")
"Inertia Creeps" (from "Mezzanine")
"Butterfly Caught" (from "100th Window")
"A Prayer for England" (from "100th Window")
"Name Taken" (from "100th Window")

Both Mezzanine and 100th Window are great albums, IMO. Their album "Blue Lines" was recommended by Paul Messenger in the Stereophile Records 2 Die 4 if that means anything. His description of their "style" is right on.

James_R, I have "Brushfire Fairytales" by J. Johnson. A guy I used to work with really liked Ben Harper. He was supposed to burn me a copy, but he moved. There is bass on "Brushfire," but I don't know if it is deep. I think my bookshelves can handle it just fine. I'll play around with it tonight.

I think I've mentioned this already, but I first heard Jack Johnson at UCSB. Seemed like he was in constant circulation on students' cd players in the film dept. I don't know when he graduated, but it couldn't have been that long. Some of the students still talked about him.

oh yeah, that Best of Seal (or Seal's Greatest Hits, whatever it is) has got some great low stuff on it. especially on that song from that one of the two abhorrent Batman movies, and the song that samples the music from Shawshank Redemption (i can't remember the title....)

Excellent choices darren. Gotta throw in some oldies DJ RAP - Learning Curve, Roni Size Reprezent - In the Mode, BT - Rare & Remixed, Sting (As Ken recommended) - Brand New Day DTS CD. Haven't bought anything recently with good bass. The last was the new Black Eye Peas and Usher CD's. Agree with Bassment Jaxx and Massive Attack too.

For something new, try the BEP - Monkey Business cd. One of my favorite cd's.

I listened to 'Carnival' by Natalie Merchant this afternoon and was impressed by the bass...I wasn't too terribly impressed with the distortion recorded throughout the cd though.

I think I've got that Natalie Merchant around somewhere. . .

Once I find it I'll give it another spin.

Thanks, BrotherBob.

I think I might have had Beastie Boys "License to Ill" LP when I was a kid. Definitely had the cassette. Almost wore the darn thing out.

Whenever I hear "Sabotage" on the radio I can't help cranking it up! Has some kind of energy to it. They may not be the most technically adept musicians at playing instruments, but they sure make up for it with feeling.

How come "Paul's Boutique" never really hit it big in the States? Could never find that cassette in the stores when I was a kid.

I was in the 8th grade when that album came out, I think we spent every bit of free time singing the songs off that album back and forth.

Totally agree (Sabotage) and its one of the coolest videos ever made too. I would argue that I find those guys amazingly good with instruments, especially considering they are classified as 'rappers'.

It just didn't get good reviews and I think that hurt it a big. Plus IMO it was more sophisticated than their first album and thus went over the head of the 'pop' scene.

I run this cool software (kPlaylist) on my server that basically allows me to stream my entire music collection anywhere on the net.

There is a windows version of kPlaylist... its basically a database, so everything is completely searchable.

I've also recently stumpled across this program called Orb (www.orb.com) which can do teh same, but more than jsut music. I'm trying it out on my MCE box.

st patguy- i think 'pauls boutique' and 'check your head', are their two best albums.. i got'em both in the player. they havent come out in several years.

but, you are correct, PB never got much airplay. i think it was just too funky for its time..? people wernt ready for it yet.
