Jason & Music.

Post by Anniemouse » Fri Jun 11, 2021 10:44 am

Are there any interviews where Jason talks about his musical tastes. I have a couple of tracks that I believe would be right up his alley, and I would love to post links to them, but I am unsure if this is allowed on the forum. :bag:

He has said in a couple of interviews that he likes musicals.
And he plays music on set if he's allowed to as well. Some of our members here witnessed that when they visitet the Dig set, maybe they can tell you what he played?

If you want to share links to good music, feel free! :D

At conventions during photo shoots, he played mostly contemporary rock. When I teased him about being a Boomer, he pulled up his 60's and 70's music . . . to my delight. :wheee

I have posted these links as I notice Jason loves 1960's and 1970's soul music.

I first heard this as a 10 year old and it floored me and I heard it for the first time in decades and it did the same.

"Wake up Everybody" (Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes)

Never heard this at all until last week great track.

"The Emotions" (Going on Strike)

I remember him playing RESPECT by Aretha Franklin. I was singing (badly) with the music and he joined in. He has some fun playlists and a lot of times he will play his daughters playlists. I asked him if a particular artist was singing a song and he said I don’t know it’s one of my daughters playlists. But he was quickly able to see who the artist was. It’s cool that he down-loads his kids playlists.

I didn't recognize any of the songs he played as I stopped listening to pop music in the early '90s. :furthermore
