Beating a Dead Horse but, is flac worth it?

Well is it just a placebo or does it actually sound even the tiniest bit better than an mp3 encoded with the highest quality settings possible? Only about 1/3 of my music is currently on cds though and not sure if it's worth hunting down the rest at garage sales etc just to upgrade from mp3s averaging 256kbps. Most of the time I listen to music is when walking around town, sitting at the computer, doing household chores,or playing videogames

Mike Read plays Venom's single "Warhead" for charity (Radio 1, 1984)

I'm trying to find an online recording of Tommy Vance's challenge to Mike Read: he would pay £100 to charity if the DJ played Venom's single "Warhead" on his breakfast show on Radio 1. 1984 sometime, I think. I'm after a recording of both the challenge and the acceptance.

Making original music

How do you know that the music you are making hasn't already been written? I have a decent level of proficiency with one instrument and recently branched out and have started learning the basics of a few others. I have never made original music and recently have started tooling around and playing my "own" songs on a combination of a few instruments. It seems unlikely that I am playing anything unique which leads me to wonder how does one know when they are? Thanks.

What is a great preamplifier to pair with a Rega RP1?

I've decided I'm going to purchase a Rega RP1 because I so desperately miss having a turntable in the house. I need recommendations for a good, appropriately priced preamp. By appropriately priced I mean I think it'd be just as silly to put a $400 turntable on a $2000 preamp as it would be to put it on a $50 preamp. I would be interested in preamps in the $200 to $600 range I think. Oh, and it needs to have banana jack outputs.

Is there a venue calendar aggregator site for music shows in SF?

In New York I often used OhMyRockness for a comprehensive list of upcoming indie/rock/comedy shows at different venues, but I can't seem to find a similar site for San Francisco. I end up going to each individual venue website (The Independent, The Fillmore, The Chapel, Slim's, etc) for info but this isn't ideal. Is there a site I just don't know about? Thanks!

Finding a specific choral arrangement for Paul Simon's "Spirit Voices"

The King's Singers did a beautiful version of Paul Simon's "Spirit Voices" back in 1997. You can listen to the mp3 here - it's track 2 on the album also titled "Spirit Voices." I want to sing this song with some friends, just for fun, but can't find sheet music/a choral arrangement anywhere. Are there secret choir-only websites I don't know about that might have the music? If it was just one tune I'd be fine just singing along with the track, but there are multiple harmonies.

What did I hear on the radio?

A couple of years ago I heard something on the radio- I believe it was the local classical station. From what I remember it concerned Jiang Qing ("Madame Mao") and was described as a "waltz". I think the premise was she was dancing to the music as it was played on a record player and reminiscing, eventually fading out. [more inside]

Praise hymns for atheists, agnostics, pantheists, and freethinkers?

Could some MeFites recommend music that might be considered praise hymns for atheists, freethinkers, etc.; that is, emotive songs with recognizable, traditional melodies and lyrics that can be sung in a group setting? Die Gedanken sind frei, It Ain't Necessarily So, and certainly John Lennon's Imagine are a few examples of what I'm trying to get at. Thoughts?

Help me find this song, The Pulse edition

I was driving a rented van home about an hour ago and put on satellite radio, station 15, the pulse. A song came on, something like: Break, break, let the world fall off your shoulders. At first it sounded like lifehouse but then, near the end, a bit like dauhtry. It is not The Fray, Break Your Plans, but the melody in the word Break is similar.

Chilled Out pop songs for a summer mix.

I'm looking for pop songs -- dance or hip-hop -- that have the same kind of chilled out almost-but-not-quite-90s-euro-house vibe as Ne-Yo - Closer, Jhene Aiko - The Worst. The songs should have kind of a relaxed vocal, washed out synths, subtle guitar and/or piano, and an easy groove. I'm especially looking for songs from the past 5 years. (and not Daft Punk).

Help Identifying a Song!

I'm looking for help identifying a song I heard earlier today. I don't have a lot to go on -- I only heard the last 30 seconds or so on the radio at a store. It was jangly and reminiscent of the Susanna Hoffs / Matthew Sweet cover albums. It sounded like a woman and a man harmonizing (but could possibly have been two women) and was upbeat. The last line ended with something like "...to make up for all you left behind", and the song ended abruptly with no fade out.

the still, small tone of disquiet

A soft, sustained high note floats over a musical texture. The music moves on underneath (slow, sad, troubled, tense - anything but happy examples) while the high note continues, insistently.

What happened to music recording dates?

Being a fan of music, I've noticed most pop and rock from the 1960s and 1970s often carried a recording date of each song in the liner notes. For instance, Elton John's Tiny Dancer shows a recording date of 9 August 1971. However I almost never see music from 1980 onward carrying any recording dates at all (with a few exceptions such as Prince and Tom Petty's material). Is this information actually printed somewhere in the trade publications, or is it simply not tracked anymore by most studios?

Mr. B♮

In recent years, I've grown uncomfortable with sight-reading lots of flats and naturals, especially in chords, and with reading notes above and below the staves. This is limiting my ability to sit down and play anything on the piano. What are some good pieces and exercises that help a person regain general mastery in this area?

Tell me about remastered audio in layperson's terms.

Lately I've been seeing a lot about music converted to a 432Hz format, but very little about why and how, exactly, it's superior. Add that to the huge amount of "remastered" music I see on Spotify when I look up an older album, and I'm confused about why it's necessary to remaster. What's so bad about the un-remastered audio? Are the reels literally degrading? Why is simple digitization inadequate? What, exactly, happens when an audio engineer goes in to remaster a track? And, if I might as well get my money's worth, how can I notice and appreciate the superiorities in remastered and/or 432 Hz audio?

I want to talk about music like I was a teenager again.

Lately I've been digging through a wealth of new-to-me Japanese bands and getting into music in a way I haven't really done in a long time. I realized this was largely because I'd stumbled upon a bunch of places that discuss JPop and JRock like this ginormous Popjustice thread, full of people who obsess over the latest bands and new music videos and whatnot. I also realized that I don't have anything like this for other music I listen to. So where do I go to discuss the other music I like? [more inside]
