    Music - currently listening

    I want one of these threads. It's time for musical appreciation

    The unenforceable rules:
    1. For every song you post, you must listen to a song posted by another (or at least half...)
    2. Commenting on songs is fine, but every post must contain a new song



    Choose Your Blade by House of Heroes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16j0uD91X0c

    Note: Don't post links to download (as opposed to stream) music, or to any place that offers the song illegally. If you can't listen to the song legally on youtube just post the song title and artist. The video I have linked was, by all indication, uploaded via an official and authorized account.

    I've been addicted to this video since it went up two years ago:



    (Go ahead and skip forward to about 0:54 where the music starts.)

    Really like Allison Krauss in soundtrack of O Brother Where Art Thou with the American-hating actor Geo Clooney.

    Actually, Dan Tyminski sang the "George Clooney" parts on that soundtrack. (George Clooney is just a pretty good lip-sync'er). You can see Dan in that video I posted, as it happens. Also, he's a regular member of Alison Krauss's band Union Station, and therefore sings on many of her albums (all of which are great, btw).

    And now for something completely different…

    This video's hilarious:

    A Song of Peace .MP3, my personal memorial to Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens

    http://www.art101.com/peace/index.html http://www.art101.com/peace/peace.mp3

    I found it while studying "Finlandia" by Jean Sibelius (1865-1957).

    That verse should be the one we always sing, not the first.

    Wonder how many of us know all four verses of our National Anthem?

    Have I mentioned that I met the gentleman who sings the little-known verse? As a matter of fact, I am in a television commercial for Rick Barber with him.

    Nice guy. Grounded and principled.

    On topic, listening to some of fxhummel1's originals and "re-writes" of existing songs into more Rights-related messages. This one, going to the tune of Journey's "Open Arms" has the lyrics re-written to talk about antis' opportunism and it really gets me sometimes, probably the piano:

    I'll admit that up till last year I wasn't even aware of other verses. That first link you posted is actually already on my Favorites on YouTube. Great voice on that Marine.
    Now making a resolution to memorize the entire National Anthem.

    That video might be "about human nature" or something pretentious, but it's definitely not a "propaganda piece". The band in question doesn't believe in government enough to believe in prohibition, I assure you. Very few extreme metal bands do.

    Frankly, I think it's just a fun video with a buttload of references to cheesy 80s sci-fi movies. Not everything with an excessive shootout has to be serious or anti-gun.

    I think there's a bit of satire on American interventionism (possibly colonialism), but that less about guns and more about, you know, government being inept.

    Sorry, but Pig Destroyer is infinitely more "hard core" than Cradle of Filth.

    This is a song from their second album "Runaljod - Yggdrasil". It was my initial exposure to the group, and their artistry.

    I guess I forgot to put in the "" after screaming "propaganda piece". Sorry about that, I went back and fixed it.

    But yes, I could see it as a satire on colonialism (in general, mind you) and possibly human nature (after all, the apes were decidedly more aggressive once they went "bipedal"). Not sure I get the 80s movie references, but based on this trippy music video, I'm not sure I want to know. Sometimes, some things are meant to remain a mystery.

    Great video there stealthyeliminator.
    I know this is a resucitation, but I'd really hate for a thread such as this one to fade away.

    So, I'll divulge that I am currently listening to one of several classics that have withstood the tests of time: Moonlight Sonata. Enjoy
