Title: Favorite Song?
Post by: CanaryTan on January 30, 2011, 12:46:49 pm
Sorry if this is in the wrong section or if a topic like this has been posted. I looked all the way to page 4 so I think I'm good.

Anyway, what is your favorite song? I shall start~

I like Hello Windows. *shot dead* XD

Now you~!

Fun topic~

Hm. I have a ton of favourites, but Let Down (by Radiohead) is my personal theme song, so I'll say that.

Speaking of which, I'm going to try doing that OK Computer/In Rainbows album-blending experiment after this radio show I'm listening to is over and see if there's any credence to the theory that the two are, in fact, two halves of a single album recorded ten years apart. -W-

PFFFF. I misread that as "get down" XDDDDD anyway, Let Down is a really nice song, i just listened to it! :) (I can't understand it but it sounds nice)

i'm indecisive. as a result, i have two favourite songs: "Burning for You" by Blue Öyster Cult and "I Won't Be There" by Simple Plan. (the guitar riffs on both of them kick ass. >:3)

my favourite bands are Blue Öyster Cult, Queen, Green Day, PUFFY, and Simple Plan. (i think i had one more, but i can't remember. ;__; )

^^

Most of their music is like that; incomprehensible but beautiful. :,)

SPEAKING OF WHICH, PART DEUX: I've conducted aforementioned experiment.

One song sung by Mac System 7, two songs about car wrecks, two about suicides, three about lust, one about love and/or plane crashes, and twenty or so about feelings of paranoia, depression, inadequacy, neuroses, psychosis and schizophrenia later, I think I can say - in my expert opinion - that there really is something to this "OK Computer and In Rainbows are two halves of a whole album spanning a decade of time" theory (aka the 01s and 10s Album Conspiracy).

Questions to ponder:
-Is Thom Yorke an alien?
-If so, is Subterranean Homesick Alien an autobiographical song detailing his arrival on earth?
-Who is Sara?
-Could Sara possibly be a slick reference to the Apple /// computer, continuing the noble Radiohead tradition of featuring Apples in their works?
-Can Mac System 7 be hired to sing at weddings, parties and bar mitzvahs?

My favorites list change a lot over time, that's for certain...

But there are a select few that linger within since times forlorn - one album in specific mention, as I have a hard time picking any one track from it; Nightfall in Middle-Earth by Blind Guardian, which is essentially a musical version of the Morgoth saga of Tolkien's Silmarillion. It's quite calling for a writer such as I, as it draws one back to the very roots of my genre; it also depicts the very beginning of my voyages into the metal genre as a whole, as one of my two first metal songs (I can't remember the order) was Mirror Mirror from said album (the other one was Nightwish' Over The Hills and Far Away cover). The rest of the entire album soon followed, and though I usually prefer the tracks Thorn and A Dark Passage when I listen to it these days, Mirror Mirror still has quite an amount of blast to give, as do all the other tracks as well.

All in all, Blind Guardian is a band I've listened to steadily through the last 10 years; their latest album At the Edge of Time, which forays a bit into Symphonic metal territory, is quite high-ranked in my current opinion.
All-time favorites include And then there was Silence (Blind Guardian), a 14-minute version of the epic of Troy, Illiad; and the whooping 24-minute (literal) insanity that is Octavarium, from the album of the same name by Dream Theater. As you might notice, I like my music in long stretches. -w-

Other bands I've recently opened up eyes for is Trivium (their Shogun album specifically), Amon Amarth (Twilight of the Thunder God's title track and end track Embrace of the Endless Ocean - pagan metal, yeah -w- ) and Arkona (russian pagan/folk metal) - I've recently remade their song Nebo Hmuroe Tuchi Mrachnye into a 4-staff choral with ten.solo and imported it for use in my mother's (church) choir. Yes, I make the church choir sing pagan metal. You read that part right. _3_


On the japanese side, long-time favorites LAST ALLIANCE and Janne Da Arc are joined by touhous and vocaloids, but, well, that's another story entirely. -w-

Post by: Dr. Kraus on January 30, 2011, 03:59:10 pm
Eh, such a hard topic to reply to! I tend to like almost every song out there (anything Disney will be slaughtered) I like songs that vary from Rock to crazy ass techno remixes. But I guess I'll put down my favorite songs by genre:

Classical- Ode to Joy
Rock- Chicago's 25 or 6 to 4
Metal- Slipknot's Duality/ Disturbed's Deify/Tenacious D's The Metal
Nationalistic- Red Army Choir's Civil War Songs: The Red Cavalry/Beyond the River/Hello, On the Way
National Anthem of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland God Save the Queen
Rap- Black and Yellow by Wiz Khalifa

this list could go on forever but I'll stop it here
I'm on the same terms as nejin when it comes to Japanese music, always a lot of Touhou and Vocaloid

Make Your Own Kind of Music by Mama Cass Elliott's my own theme song. In English I don't know if I have an absolute favourite apart from that "theme". x)

In Finnish my favourite band's clear and this is one of my favourites by them: Raparperitaivas by Leevi and the Leavings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6O5oYSbIlfk) - a lot of other songs from the same band make it to the top as well, but this is really something I love listening to.

I have many favorite songs, but one that sticks out to me at the moment is Ten Thousand Fists, by Disturbed.

This song has effectively become the call-to-arms for my team in the various Disgaea games. When I mute the in-game soundtrack during a battle, break out my laptop, and play this song, it's a sign that things about about to get awesome; that it's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum...but I'm all out of gum.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 05, 2011, 12:18:32 am
@pentium: then buy more.
personally, i love the song "Underworld" from the Disgaea OST, which makes fighting in the item world all that more fun. :3

My two favourite songs are and always will be this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo2Aypi0R2c) and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3QtpHtfj6E). both feature the most amazing guitar riffs i've ever heard. <333

Post by: Penti-chan on May 05, 2011, 04:58:50 pm
I mostly listen to rock and metal, but I'm pretty much open to anything except modern country (Sadly, living where I do means I hear that sort of country music more than I care to. The older stuff, like Johnny Cash, is fine; why can't they play more of that?).
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 05, 2011, 07:13:12 pm
i have a few country songs on my ipod, but by "a few" i mean about 5, and the dixie chicks account for over half of that. :\

i actually have almost every genre on my ipod, come to think of it. :3
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: NejinOniwa on May 05, 2011, 07:16:57 pm
Metal, rock (just about anything harder than your average stone is usually fine as long as the musicians have some sort of UN-common sense or are just plain doing it very right), and most japanese stuff. Also classical and orchestral music, mainly from soundtracks from strategy games and movies. Some other varieties fall through to the catacombs as well, but they're rarely in any sort of position to make impact.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 05, 2011, 07:18:32 pm
hmm, i suppose i have alot of soundtracks on my ipod as well, so that's worth mentioning.

This talk about plugging iPods into cars makes me wish I still had a car with a CD player, cassette player, or at least FM. It's the curse of being stuck driving a car from 1974; having a dead AM radio that's only there for looks.

Well, my dad did completely rebuild the engine, so it has less miles on it than my mom's car, which is from '08...but, this one has some electrical issues, a ratty interior, a leaky windshield, no working air conditioner or heater, it doesn't always want to start up, chugged gas like cheap beer, has a fetish for leaving me stranded, and has a dead AM radio that's only there for looks. I wish he'd either get this one fixed up to a point it's actually decent or would finish fixing up the other car in the backyard (Which is much newer, has the motor out of a car I was much more familiar with, will be more fuel efficient, and is all in all superior in every way)

[RETURNING TO ORIGINAL TOPIC]

Another song I like is Whisper, by Evanessence. That song was easily their best; from the opening guitar riff all the way to the ominous Latin chanting that closed it off, it was easily the most epic song on their first album.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 06, 2011, 12:44:26 am
ah, evenessence. my favourite tunes by them include Breathe No More, Listen to the Rain, Where Will You Go (which i have an urge to sing to an ex of mine), Hello, and Imaginary. Needless to say i have alot of them on my ipod. -w-
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 06, 2011, 07:41:14 am
I wouldn't mine hearing more off their 2nd album, but I have a feeling that the songs will fall short of the same level of awesomeness as Whisper.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 06, 2011, 01:22:42 pm

Yeah; I'll PM you one of my e-mail addresses to send it to (Since I'm not sure of posting a zip file of music is ok on here). I already have access to their first one, since my sister bought it several years back.

Which, speaking of, my sister's collection of music is demented; featuring Johnny Cash and System of a Down, to name a few

Yeah; it's just jarring if you listen to it on shuffle. Of course, my mix of music can do the same thing; let's just say going from Enya to Dethklok, or from Hootie & the Blowfish to Iron Maiden, is a little jarring
Title: Re: Favorite Song?

I do if I'm not really in the mood for a song that comes up, or a song comes up that conflicts with the mood in a story I'm writing (Let's just say, writing one of the more dramatic moments in one story while listening to Weird Al's "Genius in France" is a weird experience)
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 07, 2011, 06:11:19 pm

my ipod has a nasty habit of following up a song with one of a COMPLETELY different genre, so i tend to pause it when the song's done and search for a similar one.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on May 07, 2011, 09:43:49 pm
The only genre of music I have in my collection is AWESOME. Thus, no matter what comes up, I am happy. (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

My favourite songs change on a daily basis... even my favourite artists do... the only musicians I know of whose ENTIRE musical works I like, and that I have liked consistently over a long period of time, are Radiohead and The Beatles. (And Frederic Chopin if you want to include composers too [which I do]).
Title: Re: Favorite Song?

i have a feeling that there will be radiohead breaks when we hang out this summer. =w=;;

Same thing with some of the stuff I have.

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 09, 2011, 08:39:58 pm
Anyway, my mentioning of T-Ride brings me to my next favorite song; Luxury Cruiser, by T-Ride (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdG6zmZYtWA)

It was noteworthy for being one of T-Ride's few claims to fame; as this song was on the soundtrack to Encino Man. Also, this served as the theme to my other car (The one that replaced the one I'm stuck driving again) before it suffered critical existence failure. That car was awesome; it was a 4-door subcompact hatchback that could have used a new coat of paint and was very fuel efficient while being fully capable of blowing the doors off a sparkly new Mustang when needed.

EDIT: As a note, the video I linked to containing the song is unfortunately low quality; it's listenable, but it doesn't do this song justice

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 09, 2011, 10:11:58 pm
lol. the beast (aka Emo Car) was my mom's old Subaru wagon. got great gas mileage, had LOTS of room, and was great for beach trips. survived a couple crashes, even had black duct tape around the lights (hence the "Emo Car"). that thing got my sister to Connecticut and back, in a snow storm, one one tank of gas. -w-
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 09, 2011, 10:26:54 pm
The Silver Bullet had a long history in my family; being bought used by my great uncle, then going from person to person until it found it's way to me...where, following a catastrophic brake failure, it met it's unfortunate end.

However, Two Ton Paperweight (My other car; a '74 Dart) still lives, as much as I've come to hate it in recent months

Another song I like is There's Only One Way to Rock, by Sammy Hagar.

That is the song that introduced me to rock and metal, at the young age of 3; hearing the song while riding in my dad's car. It blew my mind; it was like the Power Rangers theme song, but turned up to 11 in terms of everything. Even years later, I still like that song; now that I actually know what the song is about.

- Queen
- Eric Clapton
- Molly Hatchet
- Led Zeppelin
- ZZ Top

@Choco: The rap songs I remember the best from when I was a kid where No Diggity (Which I liked when I was younger, but don't care much for now) and Baby Got Back (Which I still like).

Another song I like, which I remember hearing on the radio as a kid, was Sex & Candy, by Marcy Playground. I remember hearing it for the first time during the ride home from the store after getting my N64; so, ever since that day, I think of the day I got my N64 whenever I'd head that song...which became weird once I got older and learned what the song is about.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 10, 2011, 08:34:55 pm
yeah, it's a little disturbing when you hear stuff you heard as a kid and are like "wait a minute, that wasn't--oooh. o__o;;"

i have sex and candy on my ipod, and have been meaning to get baby got back (my sister has it).

Post by: Penti-chan on May 10, 2011, 08:58:22 pm
It's like with a lot of Sammy Hagar songs; way back then, I used to think that "My Baby's On Fire" was about combustible infants

@Choco: That was my reaction when I read the lyrics to the ending theme to Amy Rose's story in Sonic Adventure; it was completely nonsensical, with lines like "He reminds me of parsley when he's standing there all alone"

Another song that made me go "WTF?" when I read the lyrics was System of a Down's "This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song"; but, giving the title, that was probably intentional

Speaking of nonsense lyrics, I think Ben Folds could be the single most lyrically-bizarre artist in my music collection. (Compare Beck, whose lyrics are also very strange but give the impression of being a stream-of-though... whereas Ben Folds is just, confusing. Sometimes. He does have more coherent songs...)

This...

I hate it when people create new topics for every random thought, but it's worse when topics get hijacked too - for instance, I'm disturbed that car talk has entered about six separate threads, including /Topicless, /Favourite Song, /Random AND /Member Pictures, and oh let's say /Favourite OS.

The uber back-and-forth thing bothers me too, since posting-every-twenty-minute-back-and-forths should really be saved for a chat or IM session - especially when the conversation devolves farther and farther off topic (it starts are talking about favourite songs, then it goes to lyrics [which is still cool cause lyrics are an important part of songs] then it goes to weird lyrics, then it goes to poinless lyrics, then pointless poetry, then random statements about art, then cats walking over typewriters or some shit. Wut.)

I don't say this to be mean or rude, I like Pentium and Kari, but posting like this can make the forum very difficult for people to follow. :/
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 12, 2011, 04:07:24 pm
Another one of my favorite songs is Stargazer, by Rainbow.

To put it simply, this song is epic; opening with an awesome drum solo, having a slow but heavy guitar riff, epic lyrics, and the awesomeness that is Ronnie James Dio on vocals to make for one of the most awesome hard rock songs of all time.

If you guys like talking that much you should exchange IM info. : D (I think a lot of us already have each other as contacts, so if you want to talk to somebody just ask, it's not impolite.) ^^

....

They aren't favourite songs (not even favourite bands, though I love some of their work), but right I could listen to You Are A Tourist - Death Cab for Cutie and Be Still My Heart - The Postal Service like a dozen times without getting sick of them. They're just so catchy. >w<

I'm just glad you kids get along so well.

I can given a definitive favorite album answer, semi-related; it's Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  Or any Beck album.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 15, 2011, 02:17:32 pm
@Bella: That could work; since I have a Yahoo account (Mainly for my primary e-mail address). I'll probably send that info to her later

Anyway, another song I like (Going into video game soundtracks now) is Tower of Ice, from the soundtrack to "Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZEgPkWF3Oo)

I love this game's soundtrack; it was a stroke of genius that NIS America included the soundtrack CD with the game. However, if I had to pick one song as my favorite, I'd have to go with this one; it's nice and heavy, putting me in a mood to break out my PSP and go to Item World on Disgaea 2, or maybe get around to playing more Prinny 2.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on May 15, 2011, 02:26:17 pm
The White Album and Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band are probably my favorite Beatles albums; Odelay and Modern guilt are awesome, Mellow Gold was pretty good too... those are the only Beck albums I've heard in entirety.

I love every Radiohead album except for Pablo Honey.

As for other albums I really like:
-Fleet Foxes (I listened to it in its entirety yesterday for the first time in ages, it never fails to amaze me how beautiful their music is)
-Under the Iron Sea (which is weird, cause I don't even like Keane but that it an amazing album)
... I can't think of any others atm.

Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 16, 2011, 12:56:05 am

random song i like: "Underworld" from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (and also "Sorrowful Angel" from the same game -w-).
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 16, 2011, 07:54:50 am
Since favorite albums came up, here's a some of mine listed in no real order:

- Led Zeppelin IV (Led Zeppelin)
- Boston (Boston)
- The Mob Rules (Black Sabbath)
- Blow Up Your Video (AC\DC)
- Painkiller (Judas Priest)
- Steal This Album! (System of a Down)
- Indestructible (Disturbed)

Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 16, 2011, 09:58:45 pm
"steal this album" reminds me of "download this song". :3
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 16, 2011, 10:37:09 pm
@Choco: By "download this song", you wouldn't happen to mean Weird Al's "Don't Download This Song"?

Anyway, I would talk about my favorite songs off of Steal This Album, but it's a case of it being easier to name off songs I don't like on that album (Which, for the record, the only songs I don't care much for on that album are "ADD" and "Ego Brain"; the rest ranges from very good to awesome). Instead, I'll talk about another SOAD song I like from a different album; that song being Holy Mountains.

"Holy shit" was my initial reaction to hearing it for the first time; it's probably the heaviest, most epic song they have ever done. Really; all I really have to say about this song is "holy shit, it's awesome"
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 16, 2011, 10:51:26 pm

and no, i don't mean that song. :\
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 16, 2011, 11:51:26 pm
Another song I like, getting into some of the sillier stuff, would be The Thing That Should Not Let It Be, by Beatallica.

To summarize, Beatallica is a band that's entire focus is taking songs by the Beatles and Metallica and mashing them together to create new songs. Of all the stuff I've heard by them, my favorite would have to be their mash-up of Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be" and the Beatles' "Let It Be". I'll try to find a link to it later; it's just too weirdly awesome to ignore.

@Choco: Violent Pornography is also a pretty good song; it's not among my all-time favorites by SOAD, but it's among the ones that are in the "very good" category

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 17, 2011, 07:57:27 am
Another song I like is Lemon Demon's "Your Evil Shadow Has A Cup of Tea"

They're more well-known for Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, but they did have other songs; like Your Evil Shadow Has A Cup of Tea, which is just as weird as it's title makes it sound. This is another one I'll dig up a link for later.

@Choco: Yes. This topic needs moar Monty Python

Post by: Penti-chan on May 18, 2011, 06:43:39 pm
Yeah; whenever my mom is in the car, I usually put in a CD or set it to a radio station I know she'd prefer, since I don't figure she'd want to listen to some of the stuff I like (Also, to save the weird looks she'd give me when my PSP, while set on shuffle, goes from Asagi My Love (A J-Pop song from the Prinny soundtrack) to Through the Fire & Flames)

I'd post links to those two songs I mentioned in my previous two posts, but YouTube seems to be down now
Since it's working again, here are the links to those two songs:

The Thing That Should Not Let It Be (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz1PtyYCrZQ)
Your Evil Shadow Has A Cup Of Tea (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLyD-HGVdEs)
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 19, 2011, 03:15:21 pm
was that rhyme on purpose?

most of the time my mom's willing to put up with it, if only for the fact that there IS some music on my ipod she likes (i happen to have alot of 80's music for some reason). however, occasionally there's a song that she doesn't like. case in point, when i played konata's version of "cha-la-head-cha-la" for her, she described it as "a song she never wants to hear again" :\
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 19, 2011, 05:32:29 pm
@Choco: The rhyme was unintentional, actually; it just happened to fall into place like that. Also, your mom's reaction to that song sounds like my mom's reaction to Trogdor

Anyway, another song I like, which I actually found the very cheesy music video to, is I Want Out, by Helloween (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjV8SHjHvHk). This song was used as my battle anthem for that 2nd job toward the end; when things where finally starting to look up for me after a very rough 2 months, although any hope of meeting the approval of the boss I had in that department was long gone by that point (Because, as I soon figured out, she was trying to do to me as Fox did to Firefly years before).
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 19, 2011, 07:03:17 pm
that songs reminds me of the lost boys, lol. xD

if we're speaking of semi-cheezy songs, then i feel like mentioning "Onegai Sweetheart" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pYPQtu_I5w&feature=related), the ending from the anime Fight! Ippatsu! Juden-chan. it's so sugarcoated and bubbly and high-pitched. >w<

on the topic of cute, bubbly songs (that we love), "Romantic Strike" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPeJS-pQT28) from the anime Taishou Yakyuu Musume is a personal favourite. ^^ every time i hear/sing it, it makes me smile so big i can barely form the words. <333
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 23, 2011, 09:12:03 pm
Another song I really like is Welcome Home, by Coheed & Cambria (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJJ27NxYamY&feature=related)

This is one of the bands I discovered from back when I still played Rock Band and Guitar Hero regularly, and I was blown away by how awesome it was; it was easily one of the best songs on the first Rock Band, and possibly even better than the grand finale of it's World Tour mode (That song being Run to the Hills, by Iron Maiden; another one of my favorites). This song lead to me reading up on the band, and now has me interested in tracking down the album this song was off of; I wouldn't mind hearing some more stuff by them.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 23, 2011, 09:29:02 pm
Lemon Kid by PUFFY. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Shlplqizr4)

it's the only non-english song i can sing full through w/o the song playing. i get the lyrics a little mixed up sometimes, but i get a little better each time. ^^

i love the feel of it. it's so smooth. -w-
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 23, 2011, 09:35:05 pm
That reminds of how, at one point, I could almost sing Hare Hare Yukai in full without hearing it

Another song I like, which I found the cool although a little creepy music video to, is Pull Me Under, by Dream Theater (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mipc-JxrhRk)

Even though this version is the 4-minute music video version, it still manages to maintain some of the awesomeness of the 8-minute album version; which really takes talent and proper knowledge of what to do when abridging a song for a music video. Still, if you want the full experince, go look up the album version; it's twice as long and twice as awesome, although the cool music video makes up for the shortened song.

why is everyone here obsessed with such long songs..... ><;;

i love teto music... ;v;

oh, and to answer your question from topicless/rpt (can't remember which), that picture of the 3 girls in yellow was the band Perfume (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume_(group)), which has been a bit of a current obsession of mine recently. :3

if you want to listen to them, i reccomend the songs Dream Fighter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubViCkut2FI), Chocolate Disco (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oik0u6Qq0Ng&feature=related)(you have no idea how long it took me to find a working vid of this, so watch it before the audio is taken away), Sweet Donuts (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0EQfJKQg8g), and Computer City (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOqdV8-BS8k). ^^
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 07:55:15 am
I'll watch those when I get off work.

Also, the obsession with long songs is generally because long songs are awesome; although, for Dream Theater, 8 minutes is considered "short" by their standards (Which would make the 4 minute version of Pull Me Under practically a ringtone)
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 24, 2011, 11:37:11 am
ugh, i don't get the appeal. the longest song i have that i can name off the top of my head is Jesus of Suburbia, and that's only cause 1. i love Green Day and 2. My favourite song lyrics of all time are at the end of the song.

most of my songs are anywhere from 1:30 to 4:00. :\

oh, also, another song i love by Perfume is their cover of "Jenny in a Bad Mood". (i'll find you a vid later.) I've almost adopted it as a personal theme song, given the translated lyrics. ^^;
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on May 24, 2011, 05:10:48 pm
I think the longest songs in my music collection are Mild Und Leise by Paul Lansky (20 minute computer-music epic composed on a System/360 mainframe in the 1970s), and a few Porcupine Tree songs whose names i can't remember atm, since I'm really not that into Porcupine Tree... ~v~

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 05:19:24 pm
The 5 longest songs on my laptop, starting with the longest, are:

1: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida -- Iron Butterfly (17 minutes)
2: Rime of the Ancient Mariner -- Iron Maiden (14 minutes)
3: Halloween -- Helloween (13 minutes)
4: I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) -- Meat Loaf (12 minutes)
5: Albuquerque -- "Weird Al" Yankovic (11 minutes)

Of them, the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th ones are among my favorites, while the 1st is pretty cool and the 4th is decent (Not one of Meat Loaf's better songs, in my opinion).

2: The Count of Tuscany (19min)
3: In the Presence of Enemies: Part II (19min)
4: A Nightmare to Remember (17min)
Dream Theater, all of it.
5: Na Moey Zemle (15min) - Arkona
Song's name is russian for In My Land, btw.

Note that this list does not include various mashups, concerts and kumikyokus and whatnot (since that's just cheating).

Honorable mention also goes to And Then There Was Silence by Blind Guardian, at 13 minutes - essentially a retelling of the Illiad, in music METAL form. A must-listen. Here, have your fill:
http://www.viddler.com/explore/PureRok/videos/3/ Meh quality and a bloody audiosurf video, but damn was this hard to find.

@Choco: Is that all the Meat Loaf you have? I have the entire Bat out of Hell trilogy on my laptop, if you're interested
(I also have Trapped in the Drive-Thru, in case Pitkin can't get it to you)

Anyway, another one of my favorite songs is Dumpster of Chicken, by Kitsune^2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88YXZY25eow)

I only just discovered this song a few days ago, but I love it; the style and everything reminds me of the music of the original Mega Man games, which makes me want to storm the front gates of Dr. Wily's fortress and kick some butt. After discovering it, I found myself listening to it several times throughout the day; it's quite simply an awesome song.

i just edited my last post, so not much point in saying anything else. :\

@pentium: i have alot of songs from single artists, since i go by a song-by-song basis of what i like vs an artist-by-artist basis.

and if i can get the full version of trapped in the drive thru, idc who i get it from. ^^;

Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 06:57:24 pm
@Choco: I have a few songs from single artists (Korn, Iron Butterfly, Sir Mix-A-Lot, etc.), but a bulk of the music on Asagi is full albums (Minus the songs I don't care much; why waste space keeping "Ego Brain" on there when I can fit "What Is Love?" in it's place?).

Speaking of, another one of my favorite songs is What Is Love?, by Haddaway. I think anybody who grew up in the early-to-mid '90s remembers this song either from the radio or the SNL sketch it was famously used in, so it shouldn't need any introduction...but damn it's a catchy song.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 24, 2011, 06:59:41 pm
eh, if i like a song i get it. that's my mindset.

and i find albums clog up my ipod, so it's rare to see multiple songs from the same album on there.

Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 07:13:03 pm
On an iPod or other MP3 player, I can understand cutting it down to just your absolute favorites by single artists to have more variety.

Anyway, another one of my favorite songs is Pussy, by Rammstein (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0lY99lktcE)

I remember the first time I heard this song; it was when I was playing Mario Kart Wii, with the TV setup so I could listen to satellite radio while playing. While I was blasting through one of my favorite tracks in Time Trial mode, in an attempt to beat my younger cousin's record, this song came on...and I ended up falling off the track and screwing up my record-breaking run because the song had me cracking up.

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 09:01:47 pm
I haven't heard those songs by them; aside from Pussy, all I know of is a spoof of Aqua's "Barbie Girl" they did that my sister likes (She may not understand exactly what they're saying, but Ken sounds like an asshole in that version)

Anyway, another song I like (Which I found the cheesy but awesome music video to) is Hall of the Mountain King, by Savatage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OhOm-1m3D8). This song is cheesy, but awesome at the same time; it proudly being part of the epic 3-song finale of my 12th mix CD, with those 3 songs flowing surprisingly well from one to the next regardless of being by 3 different artists (I'll talk about the other two later; the last one won't need much of an introduction, though, as I'm sure you'll know it when I say it's name)

ohmigawd, thankyou. *w* i never knew who that version of barbie girl was by, and now i can get it. ^^

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 09:33:38 pm
If I had a little quicker access to my sister's laptop, I could easily fetch it for you

Anyway, another song I like and the 2nd part of that epic 3-song finale of that mix CD is Sweet Soul Sister, by the Cult (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdys91t6IKk)

This song is another one I just like; it's slower than the previous song on the mix, but it's still pretty awesome (With less cheesiness, as well). There is a music video for it...although said music video sucks; while the video itself is fine (Consisting of footage of one of their concerts), what they did to the song was unforgivable; taking an awesome 5-minute song and butchering it down to 3 minutes by removing several sections of the song and putting the outro right after the intro with the rest of the song following thereafter. Now, where the drums at the end of the song leave off, the next song picks up and wraps up the entire CD...which I'll talk about in a bit; I just need to find it on YouTube first
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 24, 2011, 09:36:26 pm

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 09:47:22 pm
What if it's just 9 seconds over 3 and a half?

...Which brings me to the final part of the that 3-part finale to that mix CD; Hare Hare Yukai (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_indP8fT494), which shouldn't need any further introduction. I love that song...
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 24, 2011, 09:59:36 pm
how dows that flow with the others.....? .___.;

it's like going from "Forgotten" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsOBs5xM3v4) by Linkin Park to Lilium (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWtx3Z7Q0pg) by Kasane Teto.

no transition whatsoever. :\
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 24, 2011, 10:12:06 pm
How I thought of the flow when I made the mox CD was something like this:

Hall of the Mountain King ends with a slow outro, which picks up with the slow intro of Sweet Soul Sister, which ends with drums, while Hare Hare Yukai opens up with drums. Not the best flow, but at the time, I though it was pure genius.

Alright, here's a new one I like a lot.

Explosions In The Sky - A Poor Man's Memory

starts off nice and slow (it's instrumental), but that guitar part during the last two minutes is one of the most epic things I've ever heard. And the snare! The snare!
(btw, saw them live a few weeks ago, that gig was incredible)
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on June 09, 2011, 01:06:18 pm
cool. :3 (i've only been to one concert, but it was awesome. >w>; and the snare is cool, too. ^^)

a song i rediscovered recently (that's a bit hipsterish but oh well) is "New In Town" by Little Boots. the chorus in particular reminds me of me, since i sometime have a tendency to randomly lead a group through a city, having confidence even when i don't know where i am. :3

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on June 09, 2011, 01:51:54 pm
I woke up this morning with the song Meadowlarks (Fleet Foxes) stuck in my head. Dunno why... :o

I've been to a ton of concerts, mostly at summer festivals/park events/etc - last year I saw Weezer and The Gin Blossoms (though that was a free, outdoor venue on the Cape and it got cut short by thunderstorms).

A few years ago I went to a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert with my family at an arena in Manchester. I'm not really fond of TSO but they put on a amazing show.

I've never been to a concert. Of course, if I where to go to a concert, I'd have to resist the urge to be the guy in the audience shouting "Free Bird! Free Bird!"

Speaking of, another song I like that I think everybody knows is Free Bird, by Lynyrd Skynyrd. To be honest, this is the only song by them I really like by them; it starts slow, but ends with a classic, nearly 4-minute long guitar solo.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?

One that I like that fits into the same basic theme is A Passage to Bangkok, by Rush

Although not one of their best songs, it's still a pretty good song all around. It'd be better, though, if it didn't come right after the conclusion of 2112 on the album it's on.

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 06, 2011, 01:28:06 am
i listen to a variety of different artists, so i judge "favourite artist" by amount of songs i have by them x how much i like said songs.
as a result:

green day
queen
PUFFY
blue oyster cult
simple plan

btw, does anyone have any songs they're ashamed of having? i have a couple that i hate to death but ate so catchy that they were stuck in my head till i got them. :\
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on August 06, 2011, 02:49:55 pm
My criteria for Favorite Artist involves being familiar with the majority of their body of work (or the ENTIRETY of their body of work, for newer artists or those with small discographies) and consistently enjoying the majority/all of their body of work over a sustained period of time.

It's tough for some, though - I love Fleet Foxes, for example, and have consistently liked every song they've made so far. But since they're a relatively new band with a small discography AND I have yet to listen to their most recent album in entirety, I am hesitant to call them a "favorite".

Another example would be Beck, I've consistently liked his music so far but I've only listened to four of his albums in entirety + a handful of other songs on their own, so I'm really not familiar enough with his works to make an informed decision.

TL;DR, favorite artists are srs bsns.

Since we've already discussed what the longest songs we have in our music collections are a while back, I got to thinking: What is the shortest song in your music collection?

Off the top of my head, the shortest I have would be 36, by System of a Down; at about 45 seconds long

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on September 06, 2011, 11:21:56 pm
The shortest song in my collection is Theme From Flood by TMBG, at 0:28. -w-

The shortest recording is that of an IBM 7090 computer room, it's only 0:03. (I wish it was longer, 'cause it would make for good white noise.) ;-;

On the topic of FAVORITES...

I had a fangasm when I heard a Fleet Foxes song on my local radio station today... ever since I discovered Fleet Foxes in 2009, I've been pissed at the fact I've never heard their music on any radio stations, aside from Stew's radio show (and this one satellite radio station I used to listen to played Mykonos quite a bit... but that doesn't count since satellite "radio" is the devil's work.) But I digress. It was really amazing to see that their music had finally found its way to the airwaves, and on my favorite radio station no less. /Highpointofmyday

DUDE, CHECK OUT 92.5 WRXV.

I usually have to listen to the NH broadcast (WLKC; it's the same station, but run by computers so no interesting DJ chatter/song trivia/less musical variety), but it's still a really good station... classic rock, alt rock and pop, indie, new wave, some funk, blues and jazz, folk, occasional bluegrass, alternative country and oldies, and in the case of WXRV, sometimes whatever the DJs want to play.

It's introduced me to a ton of good artists and songs. ^^

i have two universal "favourite songs", but after that, "favourite songs" depends on my mood. for example, i found myself listening to "NO SCARED" by ONE OK ROCK today, since today was crap. :\

My favorite would be, without a doubt, Killed By Death (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gV6noHEd6XE) by Motörhead.

Runners up would be Godless (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfX557swcqE) by Danzig and Freedom of Choice (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVGINIsLnqU&ob=av2e) by Devo.

As far as what's really got my ear right now, there's this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xxgRUyzgs0&ob=av3e) and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sC9xQY5nIhE).

...that song you heard is actually one of a whole cover album that PM5K just did called Copies Clones & Replicants (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD-h-YJ7Iyw&feature=results_main&playnext=1&list=PL4B0FD1682D17AF1E)... yeah.

Yeah, I think everyone has heard that song.  It's from Tonight the Stars Revolt!, which is a pretty good album.  The two albums that I mentioned are from when they dropped the industrial sound for a more straight-up hard rock or "alternative metal" *cringes* style.  I'm sure you've heard of Rob Zombie, the frontman for PM5K is actually his brother.

Hellbilly Deluxe is a badass album.  If you like any of the songs from it, then they're all really good to listen to.

Just so you know, PM5K and Rob Zombie are very similar sounding, but they each take on slightly different subject matter.  Zombie is a horror freak, and his brother loves scifi.

Metal.... isn't my thing .W.;


I'd like to get into Explosions In The Sky, but the sheer epicness of the band is intimidating to me. (I have the same issue with Porcupine Tree and Sigur Rós). It's like, unfitting to listen to while doing something as mundane as sitting in front of a computer... I should be, like, snowboarding a black diamond or preparing to skydive or at least composing some great work of literature or some shit listening to them.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Black Sunshine is so good.  I especially love how Iggy Pop does the awesome spoken word intro.

@Bella:
It's fine if you're not into metal.  I didn't really get into it until I was in college.  Before that, I had an ex that was really into it, but it was just too abrasive to me.  For me, it took a few "gateway bands/songs" (A Perfect Circle, Korn, System of a Down) before I could really enjoy the really brutal stuff (Slayer, Acid Bath, Soilent Green).  Nowadays, for someone new to the genre, I'd probably recommend something like The Sword (c'mon, one of their songs actually made it into American Dad) or Opeth (seen 'em live, very epic listening) based on a very scientific accessibility:awesomeness ratio, but pretty much any melodic metal (where there's lots of singing in-between the guttural growling or visceral screeching) is a really good starting point.  Also, when I say Opeth is "epic" listening, I mean it in a very literal sense - expect songs reaching in excess of 10 min often.  Now if you'll excuse me...

Lucky you, Pent.

My family was more reserved with their music tastes.  The "hardest" music I grew up with was Creedence Clearwater Revival, if you could even call it that.  Granted, I like CCR to this day, but it would've been nice to have been introduced styles of music other than Country, Gospel, Classic Rock and Pop before having taken art appreciation.

That was pretty good.

As for music I was exposed to growing up...hmm... I specifically remember listening to The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The B-52s, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Warren Zevon, Marvin Gaye, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sheryl Crow and Deee-Lite, as well as classic rock and pop, grunge, 80s/90s dance and old school hip hop in general. (Via either my parents or brother).

And I really loved this song as a little kid... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmdPQp6Jcdk

It's also worth noting that two of my favorite genres as a young child were jazz and classical... heh. -w-

I also remember loving Benny and the Jets as a kid... oh, and I'm told I used to love I Got You by James Brown as a baby. (But isn't that something of a cliche?) XD

Anyway.... since this is /Favorite Songs....

I recently gave a listen to the Amnesiac B-sides by Radiohead. They're all the tracks that got cut from the great esoteric masterpiece Amnesiac; not for lack of quality, it was apparently executive meddling that got them axed. (Either that or it's all a part of Radiohead's master plan to hide all their best tracks on their B-sides and EPs, thus keeping them intentionally unknown and out of the mainstream.)

Whoa. I mean, like.... holy crap. This is one of those albums that seriously make me wish I had a really good set of speakers or pair of headphones, because there's a ton of bass and it would probably sound so much more awesome through quality speakers. ><

A track-by-track review (since i know so many of you care about this):

The Amazing Sounds of Orgy: WHOA. JUST WHOA. AMAZING SOUNDS INDEED.
Trans-Atlantic Drawl: The first part: DAT GUITAR RIFF! The second part: Not as great as the first.
Fast-Track: Would be FUCKIN' AWESOME if not for the "ching ching ching ching" sample playing throughout the entire thing. It's still AWESOME though.
Kinetic: Makes me want to dance.
Worrywort: It's so plinky and 8-bitty, but like, 8-bitty in an echo chamber.
Fog: Tambourines and bittersweet little ditties in MY Radiohead? Its more likely than you think!
Cuttooth: A great song outside of the context of this album, but after The Amazing Sounds and Fast-Track and Kinetic... it  doesn't seem so great. Still a really cool song though, and the lyrics make me think of TIME TRAVEL for some reason.

I have to post this (can't say it's my favourite song, but I listened a lot of songs from this band few years ago):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ndNjrD90a0&feature=related

I'm not sure where I first heard this song, but it was either in Digimon movie or in THPS4 which I still have on my GC... Weird how that game only cost 5 € (or was it 10 €?) at the store I bought it from.

Anyway, if I'll start posting songs that have been (or are) my favourite, the list will be endless. I'm just going to say Panic! at the Disco - There's a Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey, You Just Haven't Thought of It Yet.

Mentions of Digimon, Less Than Jake and Panic! At The Disco, this thread has officially transported me back to my tweenage years.

Speaking of which ... musically-speaking, my tweens and early teens were a terrible, terrible dark time for me, and I am hesitant to mention the atrocities that I listened to. Literally, the one and only good artist that I discovered during that time was Beck.

Thankfully, I rarely got to listen to "pop" stations in the car (the family would have none of that), instead listening to a lot of classic rock and light rock (*shutter*) and my taste in music slowly diverged from the still-infantile choices of my friends (for instance: I had no less than four acquaintances who thought Crank That Soulja Boy was the greatest thing to happen in music since The Beatles appeared on Ed Sulliva- oh wait, I'm sure they had no idea what either of those things are, nevermind). By about my 16th birthday I'd given up on mainstream pop (and rock, hip hop and country...) AND light rock (*gag*) and adopted many of the musical likings i have to this day. Although I'm constantly trying to broaden my horizons.

Thanks for the offer, Kari. ^^ I'm thinking about getting some speakers or headphones as a christmas gift to myself this year...

While listening to my iPod earlier, a song came up I forgot I had on there; a song that was my "motivational theme song" during a rough time in my life (That being 2007)

The song being Hang Tough, by Tesla (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thpTrSA0HD4) (This being the first one in a while that I feel the need to post a link to). It's still a damn good song, even years after I first stumbled onto it

Does anyone here have artists/songs that they really like, but can't listen to very often because the songs/artists in question are somehow sonically or emotionally-jarring? (IE, really energetic and catchy music when you tend to listen to mellow stuff, avant-garde music when you like less experimental stuff, or sad songs when you tend to like neutral or cheery ones?)

I only ask because I've realized I like a lot of They Might Be Giants' works, but I have to be in a specific mood to listen to their stuff and like it.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on October 09, 2011, 07:23:35 pm
For me, it'd be most southern rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, etc.). A lot of it is good, but I have to be in the mood for it to enjoy it; otherwise, I end up skipping past the song for something else, like Hare Hare Yukai or Master of Puppets
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on October 10, 2011, 11:15:00 pm
most of my music evokes that response, but mainly it's influenced by the song preceding it in shuffle. for instance, i don't want to listen to "Onegai Sweet Heart" after i've listened to "Silent All These Years".

on an unrelated note, an old friend introduced me and my mum to the singer Katie Melua yesterday. he said he loved her voice and her, and as i was feeling a twang of jealousy he said he loved a popular male artist, and i felt better. :3

that said, she has a very pretty voice, and her songs are quite deep and calming, if a bit sad.

I have to be in the right mood for the Beatles and a few other bands, but most of the time I just let shuffle flow.  Play what it wants to play.  Music can effect my mood more then my mood effects my music.

Since I don't recall ever posting here before, might as well post my favorite song.  Probably Copperhead Road by Steve Earle.

@Kari: I've known about Katie Melua for a few years, but have only heard a handful of songs by her... my favorite is probably her cover of the Cure's Just Like Heaven.

Speaking of artists we've recently discovered, I gave the album Andorra by Caribou a listen a few days ago... the first half of so I found mindblowing, it was a modern, but still very authentic-sounding, take on 1960s psychedelic rock. The second half was decidedly more electronica-esque, but still really good too.

That's really interesting; there are some Beatles songs I can listen to just about anytime, and others I can't unless I'm in the mood to hear them (which I guess can be said for most artists in my playlist). Only wanting to hear certain things usually only becomes an issue if I'm trying to do art or feel a certain way.

I knew this before... every time I hear that song I think of you. >//3//>
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on October 11, 2011, 11:12:43 pm
so i just heard the ducktails theme in about 10 different languages. :\

which leads me to a point i may have already made: when a song is stuck in my head, it's as if i can't listen to another song untill i listen to that one to get it out of my head. when i get a new song or listen to one alot, it's common for a song to loop. :\

@stew: i'm too picky to let shuffle go most of the time. xD and while music effects my mood, once a mood is imprinted it typically effects the music. (although, usually i have to be feeling the mood lightly in order for it to fully imprint, such as listening to saddish songs when you feel down.)

Ironically, I'm the opposite. I like to listen to neutral/sad/dark songs when I'm feeling down, and upbeat or happy stuff when I'm feeling good. Listening to cheery music only makes me feel worse if I'm not feeling so great already...

I don't do playlists.... actually, I tend to try to listen to albums in their entirety, or just leave iTunes on shuffle and skip past songs until I find one I want to listen to.

I agree with Bells here. When I'm sad I prefer quiet, rather sad songs, often curl up in bed. It is during those times that I cry often, but sometimes the crying helps a little. One thing that always stays the same is that in these moments I rather desperately wish for a (sadly non-existent) girlfriend to be there and hold me. Just someone who'd say "I'm here, it's alright".

Happiness = happy music too ^^

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on October 26, 2011, 11:41:09 pm
i believe i mentioned my take on music vs mood, but i'll clarify so i'm relevant:

sad music + seeds of sad mood (ie: my current mood after last saturday) = potent sad mood (the more sad songs in a row, the sadder the mood)
happy music + seeds of happy mood (ie: my mood after getting my dollfie) = potent happy mood (" ")

the  whole "a certian song can make me this mood" only works in extreme cases, like with the song "Cancer" by My Chemical Romance, which will make me sad 95% of the time.

more often than not, my mood affects what i want to listen to, though the preceding song can effect it too. i'm a chronic shuffler and song skipper, so this is semi-important in music choice.

example: listening to the song "Strawberry Fields Forever' should not be followed by "Eleanor Rigby" (unless it's a Beatles binge, which hasn't happened yet).
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on October 27, 2011, 12:02:29 am
As mentioned before, I'm the same way.

Like, if I'm feeling a little down (Example: In July, during the "emotional confusion" phase of my summer-long saga), a sad song will often make me feel worse (Example: System of a Down's Roulette), while if I'm in a really good mood (Example: In September, when I passed the GED), a triumphant song will make me feel even more awesome (Example: Iron Maiden's Losfer Words (Big 'Orra))

However, certain songs regardless of how I'm feeling can effect my mood; like how Iron Maiden's Judas Be My Guide will make me depressed (Not because of the song itself, but the bad memories now tied to it), while DragonForce's Through the Fire & Flames almost never fails to reignite my fighting spirit (Especially if I get up and do air guitar to it, regardless of how silly I may look to everyone else).

Unless a certain song I don't feel like hearing right now comes up on my iPod, I don't skip too much; I just set it to shuffle and go about my day, no matter if I end up going from Hare Hare Yukai to the Dethklok song, Hatredcoptor.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on October 27, 2011, 10:37:00 pm

I have a lot of "sad" songs in my collection, but there are only a few that can actually make me feel depressed. The Long and Winding Road is probably at the top of that exclusive list.

As for songs that make me happy... a lot of Jonathan Richman and/or The Modern Lovers songs cheer me up. I don't think I can get through I'm a Little Dinosaur or New England without breaking into a grin at least once...

Last February when I was feeling (more) depressed, I listened to the album The King of Limbs when it was first released and it managed to comfort me somewhat. I wouldn't go as far to say it made me happy, but it was like the musical equivalent of being wrapped in a big warm blanket (which was a fairly large departure from pretty much anything else Radiohead has done).

Anyone else here into electronica? Or indie?
(I ask because I've liked indie for years, and have recently started to get into electronic music, particularly intelligent dance and folktronica...)
Title: Re: Favorite Song?

The only indie band I know of and follow is Sons of Albion; an up-and-starting hard blues band from England. They only have about 3 songs out the last time I checked, but they are a damn good band regardless. I suggest looking them up sometime

idk what's regarded as "indie" anymore. when i was a kid, guster and incubus were regarded as "indie", but idk if that's the case anymore. that said, i have both of those bands.

i recently heard a couple songs from local bands, and i wish i could get them on my ipod, but they're so small they're not on the net. :[

as for electronica, depends on what you define as electronica. i have alot of techno which could double as electronica, or if you want to be more literal, i have some songs that are literally electronic noise.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on November 05, 2011, 12:18:19 am
@Kari: Yes, techno is a type of Electronica.

Indie's a bit harder to define, but for me it's some combination of mainstream obscurity or having a "niche" fandom, low-budget records, an unusual musical style and belonging to a small label... of course there are exceptions, and not every band that falls under these categories is indie and there are some indie bands that are wildly popular.
Title: Re: Favorite Song?

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Penti-chan on May 07, 2012, 11:00:55 pm
So, I have a question for everybody:

What is a song you loved, but you never knew the title and/or who sang it until years later?

For me, the ultimate example is the song Desert Rose, by Sting. When I first heard this song way back in 2000, I loved it because it was very unusual; it sounded like nothing else on the radio at the time, before then, or ever since. However, I never knew what the title was or who sang it; the fact it seemingly disappeared from radio without a trace only a year later made it harder for me to solve this mystery.

It was a good 12 years later that I finally solved the mystery, and it was by pure chance. While out and about last Saturday, going to garage sales with my sister, she bought the Sting album Brand New Day for $.50; wanting something to listen to while we're driving around aside from the crappy local radio stations and her husband's mix CDs (Which both of us have heard more times than we care to), and because Sting is awesome (After all, another one of my favorite songs is Message in a Bottle, by the Police, but that's beside the point).

Once track 2 of that CD started playing, and I heard that song, my exact reaction was "Holy crap; I've been trying to figure out who sang this song for the past 12 years". At last, the mystery is solved and the song is now on my iPod :3
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 07, 2012, 11:15:28 pm
cool ^^ even if you hadn't figured that out, i have that song on my ipod, so there might have been the chance you'd have heard it anyway. :3

that said, i know there are several songs like that, but i can't really think of any off the top of my head, other than "Melt" by Hatsune Miku. i didn't find out about vocaloids untill about my last year of high school or so, but about a year or so before, my friend Kai had sent me a Link x Pikachu (SSB) video with that as the back track. i ended up getting the video and the song with it, but didn't know the name or artist until my friend Mike gave me First Sound Story along with a bunch of other albums in one of his mass music transfers (he would occasionally borrow one of my flash drives and load it with a couple hundred to about a thousand songs by various japanese and korean artists).
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on May 07, 2012, 11:24:09 pm
Sting's alright, I'm fonder of his work with The Police though.

I can't say I've ever gone very long without identifying a song I like, but awhile back I discovered that I was familiar with more Kinks songs than I thought I was, just because I'd heard them on the radio before but never knew who the artist was. It was kind of surprising listening to a Youtube playlist of their songs and recognizing many of them...

i think i had moments like that when i was a kid, since i listened to the radio back then. xD i think the songs i have by the pretenders were like that; when they came on the radio i'd recognize them instantly, but if you told me the name i'd stare at you like you were speaking a foriegn language. xD

when i was young, my sister got a bunch of computer games for a birthday, one of which was this program called 3D Petz, where you got to have a 3D cat in a 3D environment. you could play with it, feed it, and do other things (like play connect 4, weirdly enough). they had an option where you could leave the radio on, so there would be music playing all throughout the house and yard. i had a favourite song on there that i always (incorrectly) attributed to "Zippidy-do-Dah".
here i am today on a Ragtime wiki walk, and i find out that that song is "The Entertainer" by Scott Joplin. :3

(*is so excited* ^^)

With stuff like that, the soundtracks to a lot of games by the Learning Company fall under that.

I remember being over at my great uncle's house ages ago, doing something while one of his CDs of classical music was playing, and I clearly remember stopping at one point when I realized the song that was on was the theme to the Greece & Rome level of Ancient Empires :3

see, i can't do that. it's part of the reason i skip around on songs so much, it's because if a song doesn't fit what i'm doing/feeling, i don't feel right about listening to it. commuting to fast-paced music was much easier than dirges, and relaxing on the bus ride home wasn't easily possible with upbeat techno.
(listening to songs like dirty digital by kors k (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7cO8coRpTo) wasn't too far off from relaxing, however. *experiences eargasmic euphoria at hearing this song again* *0000000* )

I usually listen to video game music.  But picking a few favorites is quite diffucult.  But I'll list a couple of my favorites.
1. The soundtrack of Mega Man X6.  If there's one thing people like about this black sheep of the X series, it has to be the music.  This is one of the best in the series.  This also seems to a common thread in certain games: It may be bad, but the music is damn good.
2. BlazBlue's soundtrack (Up to Continuum Shift Extend).  With the exception of Black Onslaught (Unlimited Ragna's theme), this is very well composed soundtrack.  From the hard rock and roll of Rebellion, to the epicness that is Awakening the Chaos and Sword of Doom, to the troll-tastic Gluttony Fang and Endless Despair, this is a go to soundtrack if you are looking for awesome battle themes.  Is it just me, or does Alexandrite (Makoto Nanaya's theme) fit in a techno level of a platformer? ???
Here's a link to listen to it:

I actually liked Megaman X6. You're not wrong about the soundtrack, it was definately awesome *w* In fact, I think I might burn an ISO onto a blank CD for my modded Playstation.

Post by: SoldierSpence on April 14, 2013, 04:17:28 pm
Like I said, X6 is considered the black sheep of the series.  Some people like it, some people hate it.  I too enjoyed the game.  When I got the Mega Man X Collection on the PS2, and when I got around to playing X6- I couldn't get past the first stage of Gate's Lab.  Last summer, I finally did 2 complete playthroughs as X.  Now all I need to do is the Zero run, and I'm set.

I can see why some fans are torn about X5.  Keji Inafune had originally planned X5 to be the last of the X series, but the development for said game had secertly work on X6, in an attempt to revitialize the series.  The end result was a mixed bag, but a decent one, none the less.  Even though the game was pretty hard, I got some enjoyment out of it.

Edit 1: As for X7...  Yeah, the less talked about that train wreck, the better we're off.  I don't own the game, and I don't plan on it either.  I have heard that X8 was pretty good.  I have the demo on Mega Man X: Command Mission for the PS2.

Edit 2: Another soundtrack I completely forgot about- Demon's Crest.  The fact the Super Nintendo can handle Organ music is absolutly amazing.  Quite the underrated gem of the SNES library if you ask me.  Look it up when you get a chance.

So, listening to a '90s pop station at work, I've rediscovered some songs from my childhood I forgot about, or in some cases, remember fondly but never knew who sang it. Now, I at last knew who sang of seeing signs that opened up their eyes; a burning question left hanging from a bygone era xD

To name a few I have rediscovered and added to my iPod:

The Sign -- Ace of Base (Goes back to when I rode in a booster seat in the very truck I'm currently driving. Never knew who sang it until 20 years after it came out)
Children [Dream Mix] -- Robert Miles (Reminds me of the level theme to Rusty Ruin, from the Saturn version of Sonic 3D Blast)

i know the topic has been covered before, but any of you guys like techno/electronica? synth-pop? synth-classical? i torrented all (well, i THINK all) of the various Homestuck soundtracks to date and decided to start listening to them (31 albums, 689 songs total). ik most (okay, all) of you aren't really into Homestuck, so i was wondering if anyone wanted to give the albums a try. they run the gambit of beautiful piano tracks to music boxes to synthesized wonderlands(or, in the case of a few tracks, demonic children's music). no 2 songs or albums are alike, making it hard to pin down a particular genre on any one (and some of them have upwards of 50+ or even 70+ songs) outside of perhaps Homestuck for the Holidays, and even that has a pretty wide span.

lemme know if anyone's interested, i can post a few YT links to some of my favourites if you like.

did you begin the torrent? i'll post a few more vids tomorrow. ^^

also, i have no idea the logic behind the names of the songs. considering few to none of these are actually PLAYED in the game/comic/whatever, i can only assume they were either nonsense or some SUPER-obscure reference that only someone who's played to current 3 times will get. >>;

on the other hand, some of the titles make sense (read: Maplehoof's Adventure), and Homestuck IS pretty random, so it could just be a mad lib title. :\

(also, how did i know you'd like Jane Dargason? tbh it reminds me of you a little bit. >w> though i am surprised you liked the Midnight Crew one and Lotus Land Story, i had you pegged as liking Lotus more. :0
there's a 3rd version of Lotus that i've yet to listen to. i'll post a link tomorrow. :3 )

Not to interrupt the Christmas music battle, but something I just thought about...

Has anyone else ever listened to a song they heard as a kid, and realize the song is a lot dirtier than it initially seemed?

This came about when listening to the '90s station at work; as I heard Christina Agulara's Genie in a Bottle for the first time in forever. As a kid, I heard it and thought "oh cool; a song about genies"...and then I hear it as an adult and I'm like "WOW. MUCH INNUENDO. VERY SEX" -w-;

Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on November 22, 2013, 01:21:51 pm
@nej: yeah, god i miss it.... -w-
@simon: ouch.
@pent: i loved that song as a kid but all the parents hated it for the bad message. tbh i was savvy enough when it came out to know how dirty the line "you gotta rub me the right way" was, but i wasn't listening to it for the message or the lyrics, i was listening to it because Christina Agulera is an amazing fucking singer and the song was super, SUPER catchy. *dances*

lately i have been on a massive she kick, after torrenting the discography. it's a sophisticated sort of techno i'd picture listening to while sipping tea in the city on a rainy day. some of the songs are just so beautiful it's as if the guy took watercolours or stardust or that warm, tingly feeling you get when you're happy and turned it into audio. wow. much eargasm. so transcend.

have a few sample tracks:

Post by: Penti-chan on August 22, 2014, 08:05:00 pm
You know, random thought that made me want to revive this topic: What are some of your favorite albums, and why? I figured I'd share a few of mine, in no real order:

- Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd - 1975)
While The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon, the other two albums by them that I own, are great in their own rights, I'd have to say that Wish You Were Here is probably the best. I mean, really cool yet simple cover art aside (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/39/WishYouWereHere-300.jpg), the album itself is very well assembled; it just works on so many levels, and is enjoyable to listen to each time. Also, there's something satisfying about an album that bookends itself (The first and final songs tie into each other)

- Steal This Album! (System of a Down - 2002)
This is another case of great cover art (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/45/StealThisAlbum.png)... in that it technically doesn't have one; the disc is designed to look like a CD-R with the album's title written on it. Of the entire discography of SOAD, this album is easily my favorite, with the follow up album Mesmerize being in a close second. I mean, what other album is going to have a war protest song and a song about sending a groupie to buy pizza while the band's watching baseball?

- Led Zeppelin IV (Led Zeppelin - 1971)
First off, This cover art (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/26/Led_Zeppelin_-_Led_Zeppelin_IV.jpg) is really simple, and yet, it works so well for this album. As for the songs, the one song everybody knows from it is Stairway to Heaven; a good song, yes...but the rest of the album is so damn good that it's definately worth a listen for more than just the big hit. I mean, their cover of classic blues song When the Levee Breaks is easily one of my favorite songs from them, and Four Sticks has a very unique rythim to it that is unlike any other song I've heard.

- Painkiller (Judas Priest - 1990)
First off, I must say: This album art is amazingly over the top (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/16/Judaspainkiller.JPG). You see a metallic angel flying over the ruins of a city while riding on a dragon-shaped motorcycle with circular saw blades for wheels, along with the Judas Priest logo in the corner, and you know you're in for some epic rocking. Just, every song on this album works; it's wall-to-wall metal from start to finish...and the song Hell Patrol would end up being the name of the faction of villains in a story I wrote, just because it sounded cool.

- Bat out of Hell trilogy (Meat Loaf- 1977, 1993, 2006)
Honestly, it's hard for me to pick just one, so I'll go over the entire trilogy.

All (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/00/Bat_out_of_Hell.jpg) three (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/79/Bat_out_of_Hell_II.jpg) albums (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/71/The_Monster_is_Loose_Bat_Out_of_Hell_3_album_cover.jpg) have some of the coolest artwork of all time, and in all honesty, they sound as awesome as they look. As for my thoughts, having listened to all 3 back-to-back, I will say the first is classic, the second is pretty good but not as good as the first, and the third, while a favorite of mine and what got me into Meat Loaf to begin with, has one major flaw in my eyes: they should have saved the duo of Monstro and Alive as the album's grand finale, instead of dumping them at the album's half-way point and instead having Cry to Heaven as the final track.

i can't think of many albums i have twanging nostalgia over the way you do, so i can't write a good follow-up post in that regard. i like your synopsis(s) though, and in return, rather than albums, i'll offer my thoughts on some of my favourite artists' best musical years (in my eyes)

Green Day: 1990 - 2003

Green Day stands as one of my favourite bands of all time, so i will say nothing to slander their name (ever). however, if i am to narrow down their sound to what i think was their high point, i would pick the 90's. my favourite Green Day song stands as At The Library (first released on 39/Smooth in 1990; re-done and re-released in various forms/on various albums till 1995), because of the catchy riff, excellent harmony on the chorus, adorably relatable lyrics and grunge sound. Green Day's early years were coming off the punk era and into the grunge, which may be why there's a bit of overlap between the two in the band's early years. time went on and they released Dookie (1994), Nimrod (1997), and Warning (2000), which contain some of the band's most quintessential tracks, such as "Basket Case" and "When I Come Around" (Dookie); "Hitchin' a Ride", "The Grouch", "Redundant", "King For a Day", and "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" (Nimrod); and "Warning", "Misery", "Deadbeat Holiday", "Minority", and "Macy's Day Parade" (Warning). American Idiot, their grand revival album from 2003, is how most modern fans remember the band, and i also remember it fondly ("Jesus of Suburbia" remains as one of my favourite songs, mostly due to a part at the end, around 8:00), but it was around this point when they were really rocketed into mainstream success, and while this is excellent (as they make money and get more exposure), it glazes over their past musical styles and achievements in favour of what will air best. they tend to only stick to the fringes of this idea, but it's been many, MANY moons since we've heard anything even REMOTELY grunge-y out of them.
most people will remember Green Day by what they're doing today, but i like to think of them as the way they were back then. ^^

(will update post later with more, i need to go clean)

In addition to the favorite albums I've mentioned before: Since I Left You by The Avalanches. I've actually had it in iTunes for ages but it took me awhile to appreciate the whole thing...

Also, any of Tokyo Active NEETs' Touhou Bakuon Jazz albums.

Probably OT, but: what role does an artist's personality/personal life play, or NOT play, on your opinion of an artist/group?

Not that much. I mean, while I'm not fond of Ted Nugent as a person, I will say he has made some pretty good songs.

same here. i've heard a lot of things about Chad Kroger being a douche, but i'm still fond of Nickelback's music. as long as they don't advocate hate speech in their lyrics, i don't really care what they do (except extreme cases, but i've yet to see that).


will update my most recent post later~
Title: Re: Favorite Song?
Post by: Bella on September 20, 2014, 11:57:14 pm
I tend to separate artists from their works, but I do love it when I find an artist (or group) whom I like as a person (or people) also.

Radiohead is probably the classic example of this dynamic for me.

I love that they've managed to avoid essentially every pitfall of stardom. They've been together since they were practically kids, have expressed genuine loyalty to one another, haven't allowed drugs or alcohol to interfere with their craft (although parts of  OK Computer were supposedly recorded in a drunken haze...), haven't had any infighting or power struggles, and seem like they're all genuinely nice, normal people (as long as you aren't Noel or Liam Gallagher or Miley Cyrus)...

Say what you will about their music or how "weird" they sound, but the fact they've been together for so long and seem to be sincerely devoted to their art should make you at least respect them, even if you don't like them.

he was using a Gigaware. my concern with getting an ipod is that 1, i don't think he uses itunes, 2, they tend to be a bit more expensive than others, and 3, since i'd be buying it used in that case it may either not be supported by current itunes or risks being broken crap. i'm fine with playing russian roulette with my tech, but not stuff i'm giving as a present. :[
(still, it's something to think about...)


i just read something quite sad, but an okay kind of sad: It looks like Evanescence is coming to an end. (http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/sep/23/evanescence-amy-lee-end-could-in-sight-rock-group) i can understand why Amy Lee would be alright with ending the group, since i agree with what was said in the article, that the average consumer who thinks of Evanescense thinks of songs like "My Immortal" or "Wake Me Up" or "Everybody's Fool". while they're all great songs, since they came AFTER their establishing period and really sprung them into the stars, it's pretty limiting, especially given the Gothic genres of music have/are starting to die off in the mainstream. sure, you can be a hipster and say "who cares about the mainstream, they're still so jive!", the fact is that it doesn't translate to dollar signs, which doesn't translate to success, which would mean the end of her music career as a whole. combine that with the fact that Amy Lee's style is ever-evolving (paraphrased from her own words) and it's not quite a relief that the band is likely ending, but i can understand and accept it.
what's tragic, though, is that if their earlier works had gotten more recognition in the way Green Day had, this may not have had to happen. their earlier stuff is still Gothic, but extremely varied compared to their later stuff. chorals, orchestrals, rock, grunge, possible pop, etc etc. if their early stuff was more well-known, then them turning to different musical styles may have been more acceptable by the public eye, the way Green Day evolved over time and the public ate it up. All of this leads me to....


Evanescence: 1995 - 2004

Evanescence has always been one of my favourite bands. i spent my preteen and teenage years listening to burned mix CDs of them, Green Day, and several other artists/music styles ranging from Japanese Jazz to Classical. I somewhat regret, though, that at the time i only had access to their first CD, Fallen, as did most every other teenager of the time. It was only much later that, upon torrenting their discography, did i find out that they had more early stuff than they did of Fallen and after. they could take all the old stuff (including demos, covers, alternate versions/EPs, live versions and their first album, Origin) and make a multi-CD epic out of it. by the time i was hearing this, as well, my musical tastes had matured somewhat and while i had nostalgic feelings for Fallen, i quickly found their earlier works to be much more my taste. their sound back then was so multi-faceted and experimental, so raw. it was really a treat to hear all the different versions of Imaginary, find that my favourite one is the Grunge edition one from the Evanescence EP (1998; only 100 copies made), and then lie awake at night contemplating the reasoning behind altering the original lyrics (probably to dumb it down for the masses, honestly). i began filling up my music players with volumes of lesser-known tracks, such as "Listen to the Rain"(Origin; cut), "Where Will You Go" (Evanescence EP, Origin), "Farther Away"(Mystary EP) and "Breathe No More"(Elektra OST, Fallen; cut), reveling in Lee's self-described "finding herself" period. These became my favourites because, while the band may look back at them and cringe a bit, they have such a different (and interesting) sound compared to their actual albums that it was like finding a whole new side to one of my favourite bands. I had found a secret, hidden treasure trove of eargasm-worthy tracks.
Today, they still remain as my favourite stuff. I will always have nostalgic feelings for Fallen (and indeed, a lot of the CD's tracks are still excellent songs that i love to listen to), but the problem with enjoying it was that because the band got so popular, and right at the time when i was in middle school (and my sister in high school), the album got played to death, to the point where, while i was happy to hear them, i got a bit sick of Evanescence in general. (s'why i put the end date a year after Fallen dropped; by that point, i was beginning to gag a little on some of their tracks.)
I will note that, while i think aesthetically The Open Door is a great album, only 2 of the tracks really stuck out to me (my sister on the other hand adored the album and owned a copy, which is how i got the songs in the first place). since this post is based solely on personal opinion, that's why i didn't officially include it.

(i think i'll let the posts be broken up into 3, so i'll do the Puffy post later.)

Mmm. I have all their stuff that you sent me :3
(Also, Whisper is one of many songs that will be part of my "Epic Rocking" mix CD, once I begin production of it)

I suppose I may as well share my thoughts on a favorite band of mine; since we're on the subject:

- System of a Down (1998-2005)
To be honest, I didn't really care much for them at first; mostly due to getting them mixed up with Rage Against the Machine, as the two were often mentioned in the same sentence. However, then while I was listing to the radio while playing Mario Kart one afternoon, the song Boom! came on, and was like "hey; this is pretty good". Then, I was riding around in the car with my sister and heard Chic 'N' Stu for the first time, and was like "wait...they're singing about pizza?", and immediately wanted to hear more. This was when I learned that a former friend of my sisters had included MP3s of their complete discography on a DVD-R he burned for her, so I borrowed the disc and copied it all to my hard drive.

Of their albums, since I've already established Steal This Album as my favorite, I'll say that my second favorite would probably be Mesmerize; which was a more-than adequate follow-up (Giving us the song, Violent Pornography; a song I now associate with the mental images of nuns dancing, thanks to Kari). Toxicity and their self-titled albums were also great, and to be honest, probably my least favorite of their albums is what is currently their last album, Hypnotize; which was kinda weak (Given it was produced alongside Mesmerize, it felt like they dumped all the best tracks on the first album). Given the band's back together, it's entirely possible we might finally see a new album from them sometime in the future.

So I'm into Boards of Canada now.

I actually first gave their music a shot a few years ago, enjoyed some of their songs but ended up being creeped out by their music as a whole, stopped listening to it (more or less, there were a few songs I liked), but revisited their work earlier this year with newfound appreciation.

Maybe it was becoming more familiar with their background and influences that allowed me to appreciate their music. TV Tropes describes them as sounding like "the dying sounds of a recently-excavated machine from the seventies" or something along that line, which I think describes them quite well: the warm scratch of vinyl, the static of an untuned radio, constant sampling of vintage educational films and documentaries, human voices woven into beats and the occasional strain of birdsong all make their music somehow warm and organic and nostalgic in ways I've never heard from an electronic band before.

Nostalgic is a word that comes up constantly when people describe BoC, but listeners can't seem to agree on what it gives them nostalgia for, or when. Although BoC themselves are clearly aiming for a 1970s feel (consider their graphic (https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3235/3133562099_c6c886cb90_o.jpg) design (http://static.stereogum.com/blogs.dir/2/files/2013/04/Boards-of-Canada.jpg) direction (http://www.beatink.com/Labels/Warp-Records/Boards-of-Canada/BRC-382/img/BOC-Cards03.jpg)), many listeners agree it's meant to evoke a sense of any past, rather than a specific one. Their music makes me think distinctly of the 1970s, and not a happy, colorful re-imagining of the era but something grittier and more authentic, optimistic but tinged with paranoia and fear, at the intersection of the industrial and natural worlds ... and the otherworldly. There is a heavy helping of the conspiratorial and mystical in every BoC album, with motifs that run the gamut from numerology to cults to numbers stations and subliminal messaging, though whether it's meant to convey a greater message or simply keep fans running in circles trying to decipher it is anyone's guess. (These are the guys who released a track consisting of nothing just to pad out an album to 66 minutes and 6 seconds long just to screw with conspiracy theorists, after all.)

Their music has been compared to the works of Thomas Pynchon, so there's that. (They also remind me of Scarfolk Council (http://scarfolk.blogspot.com/) in terms of Spooky British Zeerust (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Zeerust), so there's that, too.)

If you've never listened to their music before I'd suggest starting with Rue The Whirl (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk5bw9PR568) and roygbiv (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-GWjzw0GwQ), though all of Music Has The Right to Children is pretty safe. Some of their early (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6j-swFcUfk) tracks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_u6R8qNfQV4) are solid too. I may post more about my thoughts on their albums but I don't want to wall-of-text more than I already have.

All of P5 is god Tier music but Nier was more god tier so it won that at The Game Awards.
Gundam, Gundam, Gundam, I do like a good soundtrack.

I've been listening to a lot of REOL lately.

Somehow, these days I am in more of a chill period, with songs such as :

Spyra - Birds on the Wire:

Boards of Canada - Skimming Stones:

Boards of Canada is awesome!

Been listening to some Deadmau5 lately. Never really paid much attention to him because I thought he was another generic bro electronic artist, but some of his works are fantastic. These two mixes are my favorite and I'm hard pressed to find a song I don't like on them.

Odd, hours and hours of songs, and none of them are the ones I knew from the guy.

I grew fond of these instead:
