I know it's not music, but I've been laughing my socks off listening to Bob Newhart routines.

I retold as much of the Bus Drivers' School as I could remember to a friend yesterday, much to his amusement.

Ms. Courcelle, I would suggest that you now to move on to Nichols and May for more comic genius of the same era.

Meh! Why not? Let's throw some more cheesy Disco Jazz... Actually this'd be a Latin/Jazz/Disco fusion. Herb Albert's "Rise," from 1979. A song grossly overused commercially around the world - so older folks may have heard it. Load up on sugar, grab the keys to your Ferrari 308 (and your Carrera sunglasses), and drive down to Malibu for your nearest key party!  Tongue  Grin

Herb Alpert - Rise



~ ~ ~

How about some more time travel? Continuing with the Disco theme, a rarity and cult classic of a song that only 70's hard-core Disco aficionados would possibly recognize, the French "Early-Synth/Proto-Techno" Disco band "Quartz" (Didier Plus, Laurent Taieb and Patrick Langlade), with the 1978 self titled album and song. The Vogue/Marlin/Musart album only had 4 songs!

"Quartz" (Warning: this is a 12-minute long Disco tune).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWNwK7-4cMc

"Beyond the Clouds" (5 minutes)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLnZSjMvXBI

"Chaos" (6 minutes)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g892od6774

And the fairly nice theme "For Germione" (A more manageable 4 minutes). Which had a distinctively similar flavour to Vangelis' song themes of the early 1980's.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhK0-iJiveM


EDIT:

I also found another rare 1977 Disco album, "Deliverance" by the French band "Space." These two albums (Quartz and Deliverance) seem to be tied in period, and are considered underground classics precursors of Electronica music, and some are calling this genre "Space Disco." Again, I can hear a lot of Vangelis in these songs.

having just ventured into finding steampunk music, I am working on digesting Steam Powered Giraffe, The Cog is Dead and Abney park.

I like 3 songs from SPG (Brass Goggles, Suspender Man and Automatonic Electronic Harmonic).  The rest tend to be too soft and mellow, like listening to ColdPlay which puts me to sleep.  Their craftsmanship is good and the videos are excellent.  Just not all my cup of tea.

Abney Park is about 50/50.  Some stuff is too electronica and feels less steampunky to me.

The Cog is Dead hits the spot for most of my preference.  About 80% are songs I dig.

While using Pandora and YouTube to sample, they tend to randomly inject other stuff.  I liked The Last Steampunk Waltz (forget who made it), wasn't as keen on Something Wicked (this way went).  vocals weren't to my taste.

I've also seen some good examples of how to SP my Squire Strat I've had disassembled, waiting for inspiration to strike me.  I had just planned a paint job, but now I got me some ideas for knobs, levers, meters and brass tacks....

Yeah, those are, I guess,  the most well-known Steampunk bands.  I've been listening to Steam Powered Giraffe for about two years now... only recently got into the other two bands-- I feel the same way you do about the other two;  The Cog Is Dead most definitely have a sense of fun; I love the voices John Sprocket does! He seems to be doing an absolutely PERFECT impression of Orson Wells, in the song 'Blood, Sweat, and Tears'. I think you and I have similar tastes... except I like Steam Powered Giraffe a good bit more than you do. Smiley

If we do have similar tastes--- lemme tell ya, you might also like 'Professor Elemental'; he has appeared on songs with both Steam Powered Giraffe and The Cog Is Dead; I like him a lot because of how funny he is!

Professor Elemental - I'm British !!!


Here's the song he did with The Cog Is Dead:

The Cog is Dead - The Gumbo Song (audio) Feat. Professor Elemental




Also---  embedding youtube videos is simple here; just post the link in your comment and remove the "s" from the "https:" portion, so it's just "http:"

Anyway.. onto what I am listening to!


I just discovered Dan Levinson, a leader of several bands devoted to playing music from the 1910-"teens", 1920s, and 1930's:

Ah yes, my wife has had Professor Elemental on her play list due to his tea song (she worked at a tea store for a while) for a few years.

I tend to like choruses, deep voices (or at variance within the song), and a swing beat.

I need to go strolling through this thread to pick up some more artists to check out (obviously, I hit the big three because they are easy to discover).

Just found this lot by chance, bit folky, bit rocky, a bit of banjo (Mandolin?) and bagpipes, to me could be accepted as Steampunk music? maybe?

Irish Moutarde - Raise 'Em All 2013 (full album)
I can just envisage, once the tea duals are over and the gin starts to flow from the bar, more than a few people jiggling about, bustles a flowing and uniforms a twirling............??  Undecided

I only recently discovered the 'New Albion' trilogy; three operas: one each of steampunk, dieselpunk, atompunk. I heavily prefer the first installment-- the steampunk one, of course---  "The Dolls of New Albion".

Found a great stage version on the Youtube; better instrumentation than the album version imo, and produced by the composer himself:

Dolls of New Albion - A Steampunk Opera


Very moving story, mostly about several generations of people making very bad decisions over unrequited love. But I do still snicker at the line, "I would have had the lime pie, but I was dying inside."
