Best 12 albums for the 60's & 70's

We are sending a capsule into deep space to carry a sample of America as it was in the 60's and 70's. We can include 12 CDs (or albums transferred to CD) to reflect popular music of the time (1960 through 1979.) What 12 CDs best represent what was happening then?

Resources for teaching myself to play the santur

What are good resources for teaching myself to play the santur? I'm an American composer with no training in Persian music -- just a deep love for it and a gradually improving (self-taught) structural understanding of it. My "more inside" lists some ideas I've had so far, but I would love to hear any suggestions of CDs, websites, books, etc., on Persian music and/or the santur. [more inside]

What spectacularly original long playing album came out of Holland in the 60s?

What is Tony Judy talking about here: [...]the European Sixties were always Eurocentric. Even the 'Hippy Revolution' never quite crossed the Atlantic. At most it washed up on the shores of Great Britain and Holland, leaving behind some sedimentary evidence in the form of a more developed drug culture than elsewhere -- and one spectacularly original long-playing record. -- Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945, page 398 No footnote, no endnote, nothing. Anyone have any theories about what album he's talking about?

sing us a song, you're the piano man

Many pianists I know know many of the popular songs -- moonlight sonata, chariots of fire, piano man, the "Peanuts" song, fur elise, etc. Is there a list of the most popular piano pieces out there, both contemporary and classical? Even better if there is a songbook with the sheet music? Even better if it's available online? I'm looking to learn a few dozen songs with my free time in the Fall.

Who first rapped "my name is __ and I'm here to say..."

In what rap song do we first hear this much-imitated lyric pattern? "my name is ____ and i'm here to say... [followed by a line that rhymes with 'say']" Was there an actual sincere use of this rhyme by a hip-hop artist, or was this conceived of as a joke from the start? It may be hard to have an answer for sure, but perhaps we can approach the origins by listing examples and dates for the examples. One of the more ridiculous instances I've seen is the Sushi K rap in Snow Crash.

Modern music that sounds like the eighties?

I love 80s New Wave synthpop in a completely non-ironic way. I came of age with this music, and it's still a big part of my life. What contemporary music has that mid-80s synthpop vibe? I'm looking for both individual artists and songs. (For example, I think Kylie Minogue's "I Believe in You" has an 80s vibe, but not everything of hers does. But The Postal Service would be right at home in 1984.) Here are some examples of what I'm looking for: [more inside]
