- Sounds of the past you'd like to have heard live…
I cycled past a small church the other day and the guy was in the entrance ringing the bell for call to prayer,…it struck me that years ago on a Sunday at about 10.30am this would have been a very common sound, and lots of it and would have been marvelous to hear…especially in built up areas where churches are quite numerous.
what sounds from the past would you like to have been there to have heard?Posted 3 years agoYoKaiserSubscriber
You should go to Molini, you can have church bells all day and night! Live sounds I’d have like to have heard would be The Smiths live 🙂 but maybe more in keeping with the thread the Hampden Roar, I dont even like football but can only imagine what it must have been like in the record breaking capacity days, 100,000 plus at a game.Posted 3 years agomolgripsMember
I’ve heard Chuck Berry (ok it was 1992)
I’ve heard dixie car horns
I’ve heard the Vulcan
I grew up with church bells on Sundays too, 80s/90s.
I’d like to have heard the noise from Mt Tambor from thousands of miles away. Also, the roar of a dinosaur or two. And maybe the complete silence of the land in the Ordivician, before anything was living on it.Posted 3 years agorelliott6879Member

Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech
Any amount of Churchill’s quotes (“…you, madam, will still be ugly.”, “…best way to spoil a good walk.” etc, although I’m dubious of how many of those we see published and credited to him actually left his lips).bigyinnMember
I think Rocketdog might have won this. 😥
Me? I’d love to have heard what London was like during the blitz, just to soak up the atmosphere (I know its a bit dark).Posted 3 years ago
The sounds of a busy railway station in steam days.
The background hum you get in a town when its snowing heavily.slowoldmanSubscriber
Well looking at some of these I realise how lucky I am to be so old and to have heard some of them. No not a T Rex. Not quite.
I like the idea of hearing Bach at the time and also English 500 years ago.
As a student in Sheffield I was in hall of residence just around the corner from Ranmoor church. I really loved lying in bed on a Sunday listening to the bells. I more recently stayed in a hotel in Lubeck, Germany (actually opposite the Marienkirche, where Bach went to meet Buxtehude). The bells across the city on a Sunday morning are fabulous.
Just so you know, Floyd in the 70s WERE brilliant, as were Zeppelin. I missed seeing Zappa – I had tickets for the tour when he was punted off the stage by some moron.Posted 3 years ago
