Listen.  I talk to you guys and gals everyday (yes, I know you get tired of
it at times), but knowing you helps me relate to you.  Here's my question.
I am Country.  If I put on a good country tune my table performance goes up
at least 25 to 50%.  Am I alone.  Is anyone else influenced by the music
that is playing while they are shooting?  I don't care whether you like
country, rock, or whatever.  Is your game influenced?  I can damn near run a
rack on a Conway Twitty!!  No, that's not a new brand of table!  Sincerely,
Sam

Hell yes!!!! Throw some Van Halen out there for me and I'll clean your
clock. I especially like it when I'm shooting pretty good one day and then
Van Halen comes on. That usually throws me into high gear. But it has to be
David Lee Roth era Van Halen. None of that wimpy ass Hagar shit.

He is an extremely well known classical violinist...he is also
Jewish...a few years back, in order to realize his peoples music, he got
together with the Klezmatics and some other well known Klezmer bands and
had a concert.  I don't think he ever played any kind of recorded
bluegrass.  if you search the classical sections at almost any music
store, you will find dozens of Perlman albums.

Anyway, I am not Jewish...I am an American/Greek who loves ethnic
music...Klezmer is much like Greek music, which I like very much.  They
ran the concert on NPR about a year ago...it was great!

BTW-bluegrass is fun....My favorite though is vintage Zydeco!

Ron, Sometimes if you pretend that JW is asking a serious question as Deno
did, John's joke backfires.  Way to go Deno.  Sincerely, Sam

Hey Bev, We've got to work on this one.  Everyone has said their game
improves when listening to their favorite music.  Any rule against earphones
and a walkman CD?  Who cares what you look like.  The win's the thing.

Rock -n- roll, up to about 1992.
70s and 80s have the most meaning for me,
but I even like 50s and 60s oldies.

Yup, the right music - the right song - can definitely improve my
game.  If we could pinpoint which song gave us the most dramatic
improvement, then play it in our minds so that it has the same affect
as though we were actually hearing it, what a boost that would be!

Though I'd definitely get a reputation of playing to the beat of a
different drummer, as I bop around the table to music only I can hear!

Yeah, but will he play "***hold"?

But back to jukebox music...

Clearly, there are two songs that are impossible to hate:

"***hold," by Ted Nugent.  We are talking The Motor City Madman
   here, folks!  I think the lyrics are poetry.

"Lowrider," by War.   This is the cut I put on when I want to play
   something cultured, sophisticated, and high-brow.

And when I am in my vintage mood,

"House of the Rising Sun," by the Animals.

The original "The Electric Slide" by Marcia Griffiths (former
I-Three and Wailer) is very good.  Then some rap artist butchered it.

Ooh, ooh.  I almost forgot:

"Fame," by David Bowie.  (Not my favorite Bowie song --- "Scary
Monsters"
    is --- but some Bowie cut had to be mentioned.)

And anything by Neil Young.  (Especially if Nils Lofgren is screeching
his guitar out of key, like he normally does.)

A few songs that really bring out my best pool playing are:
1) The Ballad of the Green Berets
2) Stealin' by Uriah Heep
3) You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings by Yoko Ono
    If they don't have these on the jukebox, I will just stop between
shots and sing them my damnself. Of course this is all dependent on
whether or not that song (The Lone Ranger's Theme) is blasting away
inside my head at full volume and non-stop as it has been doing more &
more & more lately..... There it is now,
STOP IT !   STOP IT, I SAY...   STOP !  STOP !
STOP !       AAaaaaaarrrrrrggggggghhhhh !

Guys, guys! Get with the '90's!! Alternative works for me! A little Green Day,
Rage Against the Machine, NIN, & I'm  in heaven. It drives my opponants wild
when I'm down on the ball singing away & making everything!

I saw your picture on The Rogue's Gallery and you are pretty good
sized.  Therefore, if you sing anything by Yoko Ono I will have to
shoot you.

Would that be sharking?
