Taurus Musical Talent in the Spotlight

Taurus Musical Talent in the Spotlight

Playing tracks by

Stevie Wonder, Bobby Darin, Frankie Valli, Roy Orbison, Barbra Streisand and more.

This mix has a wider range of years covered than for the first or Aries set in this series. Where as the music from Aries artists was comprised mostly (76.5%) of songs from 1967-1977, the Taurus artists in about the same proportion (80%) spans a period from 1956-1984. And the Taurus celebrities go even further back in time. While the Aries musicians had only one song from 1935 prior to 1957, those who's sun sign was Taurus had four tunes prior to 1956 (1931, 1943, 1944 & 1950). This mix also has three more songs than the earlier mix (I also had a larger pool of artists to choose from than for the Aries mix). What does this mean? Possibly that Taurus', as often suggested by astrologers, fall into music more naturally than do those born under the sign of the Ram. Some artists not included here: Albert King, James Brown, Kate Smith, Glenn Campbell, Peter Frampton, David Byrne, and Tchaikovsky. In track 18, Ella Fitzgerald sings a song by Irving Berlin (also a Taurus).

This is my sun sign, and I'm proud to share it with these people. Also Carol Burnett and John James Audubon, both of whom I share a birthday with.
