The Good Stuff

There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind ... the only yardstick by which the result should be judged is simply that of how it sounds. If it sounds good it's successful; if it doesn't it has failed. --  Duke Ellington

This purpose of this thread is to provide a place to post outstanding examples of the Good Music. 
Genre Immaterial.

How old was Satie when he died?

The French composer and pianist Erik Satie died at the age of 59 in Arcueil, a suburb of Paris. The cause of death was cirrhosis of the liver; Satie had long been a heavy drinker. Absinthe, which can have an alcohol content as a high as 74%, was his favorite.

Did Erik Satie carry a hammer?

Erik Satie | San Francisco Classical Voice

In the habit: Satie was a man of habits: every day he walked the 10 miles from his house to work, stopping at cafès along the way. He always carried an umbrella, and he stowed a hammer beneath his coat to defend himself if necessary.

Not a man to be trified with.
