I supposed they would need a

" Hey you kids get off my lawn" song sung to the melody of "hey you get off my cloud" ( wonder if you know who this song is by?)

ps I am almost 57
age is not a number its an attitude and I know 70 year olds with child like glee and 35 year old cranky bitter codgers

I painted my worst ever paint disaster to Fairies Wear Boots' Hasslefree's figure of the same name. I made a real mess of the wings.


Daithi the Black22 Apr 2018 11:39 p.m. PST

Five songs? I pick the first five albums!

JimSelzer22 Apr 2018 11:41 p.m. PST

I wanna party with you guys

I guess I'm a little younger than this crowd. I usually listen to The Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads, or maybe Dire Straits when I paint.

Have tended to paint to Rolling Stones stuff at their peak, but will have to check out Black Sabbath!

Ceterman23 Apr 2018 5:06 a.m. PST

I'll go with none. I don't usually go with this "none" crowd, but I never liked those guys. Never bought a single album by them, yes, album. If forced to, I would put Sweet Leaf up there. Other than that, clueless. I usually listen to much better music than BS. Like Little Feat w/Lowell George, The Beatles, The Grifters, Old 97's, Drive By Truckers, John Prine, James McMurtry, Talking Heads, Linda, Concrete Blonde & a ton of others. Now, get the Hell off my lawn…

JimDuncanUK23 Apr 2018 5:49 a.m. PST

Did they ever win the Eurovision Song Contest?

Winston Smith23 Apr 2018 5:56 a.m. PST

This poll begs the question that there is any Black Sabbath "music" worth listening to.

Yes there is plenty of Black Sabbath music worth listening to. They have their duds, but they have their gold too. I suppose if you're not a fan of early heavy metal they might not resonate, but personally I am a total metalhead & love their earlier work, as well as some of the later stuff. I usually don't listen to music while painting because of the urge to headbang, but a lot of the Ozzie era stuff would be my go-to…


Mick the Metalsmith23 Apr 2018 10:12 a.m. PST

There is an early music ensemble, Rondellus, that translated many Sabbath songs into Latin and played it on early medieval instruments and style. Very pleasant stuff…who'd a thunk "Verres Militares" would be real art!?!

Listening to heavy metal guitar while painting wrecks my concentration. I save it for the mosh pit, not that I really get to one anymore except in my mind.

JimSelzer23 Apr 2018 5:54 p.m. PST

Sorry Winston but most gamers don't listen to Lawrence Welk anymore nor don't they bowl smoke lucky strikes or drink PBR. We evolve

Bandolier23 Apr 2018 8:55 p.m. PST

Good to see a few Dio-era Sabbath fans.
I was first hooked on Heaven and Hell and worked backwards to Ozzy.

Die Young
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Paranoid (still rocks)
Mob Rules
Neon knights

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP24 Apr 2018 5:25 a.m. PST

I evolve. And am a metalhead. But …

I put on Lawrence Welk last weekend for dancing with SWMBO. She used to teach ballroom in college. Please note: she dances; I hayfoot/strawfoot.

Somking is vile and gave my dad cancer (read: he gave himself cancer with cigarettes), so never had an interest.

A case of PBR sounds like a good idea. The beer with a taste for … um … thin wallets. Besides, I can retro.

Pictors Studio24 Apr 2018 8:10 a.m. PST

I actually prefer Dio Sabbath to Ozzy Sabbath. Heresy I know, but listen to the album Dehmanizer and tell me that isn't in the top 20 albums of anything of all time.

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP24 Apr 2018 9:35 a.m. PST

War Pigs should be all you need.

JimSelzer24 Apr 2018 12:27 p.m. PST

to steal from another well know TMPer

Glad you like it my friend!. (smile)
