Listening to music while smoking a pipe is something I get a lot of pleasure from and I’m sure that there are many others on here that do too. I’m going to start posting my picks for smoking to, I hope others join in. 

My pick for this evening is one I think @BriarBerg will like, Leonard Cohen, I’m Your Man. One of my all time favorite albums.

I continued my listening of Leonard Cohen with The Future on CD, while continuing to smoke Watch City Slices.

I smoke outside, so the only possibility is with a portable device. The sound is terrible, but it´s the only possibility. Today I listened to this, and this is my favorite part. 3 minutes of pure listening pleasure.

Ah- to have a smoking/listening lounge.... Alas my front porch will have to suffice. Today is Luke Combs.

I love music so everything that i like is ok when smoking, my preferences now goes around industrial rock, post punk and dark wave. ( https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkYIyPQpLqbce6OpPIhCWGg3w3TW_LfNL&si=v606LH96eb_fuedZ)

I enjoy Classical music like Edvard Grieg, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Enescu, Khachaturian but this is not my field, i only know what people shows me and i save them on my playlist on youtube.

Furthermore, i also like some pop music like The Police, Men at Work, The Silencers, Midnight Oil, Hoodoo Gurus and many other.

The group have a funny name. In Spain we had a group called "Toreros Muertos" (Dead Bullfighters). The title of the album is absolutely surreal. Salvador Dalí would love it. It sounds really nice!!!! I like them!

I just listened to a few songs by Toreros Muertos. They seem like a fun band! I like their energy, but unfortunately I only understand about 10% of the lyrics. There is an obscure dark modern rock band in the US from San Francisco called “The Dead Bullfighters” too.

Nice Ted! You know I love my Cohen. 

Also, great thread - looking forward to seeing what tunes y'all have accompanying your smoke

Today is not a refined day for me. Breaking Benjamin, Disturbed and Five Finger Death Punch (normally my gym music) accompanied my piping. Nothing so eloquent as a turn table or even a stereo- alas the phone had to do the work on the porch.

An excellent line up for the gym, but doesn’t it make you want to smoke faster and harder? 😃🤣

I have that tendency anyway 😅  I am a bit schizophrenic in my music choices- tonight may well be classical or opera. I just go with what compliments my mood and have given up on trying to make sense of it.

Just got back from a wonderful evening with an old friend that I haven’t seen in a while. I’m settling in with a pipe and Cibo Matto on CD.

I bought a few new (old) vinyls from a 2nd hand store over the weekend, so I’ve been listening to them. Last night it was the turn of a classic jazz album, recorded live in 1972. It includes a few names everyone knows (e.g. Ella Fitzgerald) and some names less well known. There are four records and I’ve only listened to one so far. Good stuff, generally. Though, there are a few avantgarde solos that aren’t really my thing. I’m not a fan of repetitive, jarring “wrong” notes being played again and again! 😄

Jazz at the Santa Monica Civic ‘72.

I didn’t have the album to hand when I posted above. It has 3 records, not 4. I’m currently listening to Ella Fitzgerald and the Count Basie Orchestra. Absolutely fantastic! There’s a reason Ella is still loved around the world.

Also, these records appear unused. They’re as old as me and in much better condition! 😄

I found a great old book, jewelry and record store in a little town's downtown area. Full of cool stuff.  This shelf caught my eye. I think tonight shall be James Taylor.

The King! Because, why not?!

Another bargain from the 2nd hand store: Elvis Forever; 32 of his greatest hits. The records are in immaculate condition. From 1974! I’m well pleased! 😊

I feel a bit somber today- no particular reason. To compliment that, I have chosen Bon Jovi These Days. A grittier and more melancholy collection than is the norm for one of my favorite hair bands.

There is something i would like to share here because i believe it can be enjoyed by everyone. 

It is a compilation of what i believe are around 8 albuns now, my favorite one is the vol 3 -  

You guys can find it on Spotify as well as youtube. Hope it can be a good match for a pipe session for you all.

I guess I’m feeling kind of ’90’s tonight. I’ve moved on to the Toadies on CD.

A true 90s classic! Or as my teenager likes to call it "classic rock".

Yeah, I’ve gotten that one too occasionally. 🙂 I usually would reply that classic rock is early Elvis, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, The Diamonds, etc. Then I would play something for them. I got one kid hooked on 1950’s music that way.

Love this album since the first time I listened it in 1989!

No group write lyrics like this anymore.

First time I listened it was when released in 1979!!!, not 1989.
