    Suggest a song

    There was a thread like this a while back and I really liked it. So I decided I will start up another one with our now entirely appropriate forum board .

    Suggest a single song to the community (And only one). I'm sure all you music lovers have many songs you'd like to share, but if you could pick just one, what would it be?

    Just give the name of the song and the artist and (entirely optional, but it would be nice) an embedded youtube or other link so that we can listen to the song right here.

    I'll start, It's hard for me to choose and I'm sure this isn't my favorite song of all times, but I really like it:

    Satellite Mind - Metric

    I like this song (and the album associated with it) that it's been referenced in my user title and avatar for over a year (and even Christmas-y versions have appeared for the past two Christmases.) Hell, part of this song is even the ringtone on my cellphone. The entire album is amazing, though... it's a concept album done right.

    I has a Blurb. And one of those Tweeter things.

    Doing this again I think I'm still going to have to go for some Celtic music; there's not nearly enough of that around these days. My recommendation, then, goes to Niel Gow's Lament for the death of his second wife. They say when his Margaret died, he couldn't bear to touch his fiddle for weeks.. and when he finally did, this wonderful song was the first thing to come out of it. Being able to transmute that much sadness into a thing of such beauty is truly a wonderful gift.

    As for artists, Gow was obviously the original but there aren't a lot of recordings from the 1700s. I haven't had too many compare to, so I'll just say that Alasdair Fraser's performance of it on Legacy of the Scottish Fiddle, Vol. 1 is remarkable. Of the Youtube performances I could find, I think this is probably the best:
    Winter is coming.

    Funnily enough, this was being discussed on IRC earlier.

    EDIT: Urgh, you're stuck with a lyrics-only version, video version doesn't like being embedded:

    A nice bit of satire from home.

    E: for those of you from across the pond, the two fingers that you think is "Peace", it's not, it's an offensive gesture akin to the middle finger. The peace sign is the opposite way.

    This is the last place where I expected somebody to bring up Joy Division. Thanks for a most entertaining video, Tiresias.

    It's gotta be Pink Floyd. Not listened to them In a while, but they still stand out as one of the most influential bands on my own life so far. And what better song than the first song I heard by them, and the song that got me hooked! It really has a brilliant opening. Made me take up guitar as well!



    Oh, and Croax, I really liked that! Never heard of The Protomen. Checking them out on youtube at the moment. Might go find out where I can get a hold of the album.

Still options waiting in the middle for St. Mirren...OH, AND THEY HAVE ANOTHER ONE! It's stunning! It's absolutely stunning at Hampden park! And it's Steven Thompson, who scores his thirteenth goal of the season, and that might just be the goal that takes St. Mirren into the league cup final!" - 27/01/2013

    Lebanese Blonde by Thievery Corporation. I loved the Middle-Eastern-inspired feel of the song, the steady rhythm and the breathy vocals.

    I honestly don't know how to describe this song. It's a dreamy, mostly vocal-driven piece.

    This was hard... if i had to suggest one song, it would be;
    Figure .09 - Linkin Park

    The reason being, its probably my favorite all time song and is one of the songs that really got me into listening to music in general (The other which i nearly posted is, Crawling by Linkin Park as well)

    Here's a neat one: Vidda by Ole Edvard Antonsen. From his album Landscapes a couple years back, this one is inspired by the Norwegian tundra. My family used to vacation there every fall: hiking, picking berries etc. While I think some of the other songs on the album better capture the sparseness and solitude of that landscape, this triumphant song feels like a great celebration of its majestic views and is still my favourite among them.


    @#20: Very interesting song. I get this odd feeling it's not finished at the end, though. It's from that Ghost in the Shell anime? Off to blogspot I go.

    Magos, it actually flows into the next song in the OST Rokki-wa doko, which is why it doesn't sound like it has a satisfying ending.

    The video isn't much to look at, but I rather enjoy their music

    Spiritualized never made a better album than Lazer Guided Meldodies imo and this is the best one on it. Brilliant in its simplicity.

    I can't seem to get this song out of my head lately. It feels kind of like a Clint Mansell score, but all the magic is done with a single cello and looping.

    Hey, that's a pretty neat trick with the cello. I've been doing the same thing with my keyboard for the last 6 years, but it's interesting to see technology interfacing with the instruments to create the same effect.

    It's 1am and I'm currently listening to this.

    Ok..lemme paint you a picture before i link the song (or to read whilst listening...that works)

    It's Friday Night..
    You're going out tonight to a club. There will be friends, drink, women, dancing, it's going to be an awesome night.
    You're gonna drink till you fall over, some pretty lady is gonna dance like you'd paid her, you're gonna rock out with your cock out..

    and in just a few short minutes...

    you'll be leaving the house and it all starts..

    This...is the song you plant in your head. The Soundtrack to a Night you'll never remember with the friends you'll never forget...

    PLAY THIS LOUD!

    (Sorry for the censoring. Youtube has the better audio quality i found, but only had the censored version with the video)

    ----------



    I think his 1st album is either out, or just about to come out.

    This guy blows me away. Check him out
    (Sorry for the double post, i couldn't just link one song)

    Won't proclaim this to be my favourite song (That in of itself is probably impossible) but it somehow manages to make me feel happy and depressed at the same time. It's by Muse (Big surprise there) and from Hullabaloo which is a good album itself, the latter half being live.

    Oh wow... I Autotune overdosed in about 20 seconds.

    Then I washed my ears out with Ennio Morricone's wonderful Cinema Paradiso main theme. Gorgeous, relaxing piece by one of the all-time great movie composers. This Youtube performance* was one I'd never heard before, and while it takes a little while to get to the music, it pays off big time. Yo-Yo Ma is just great in it.

    *Edit: Not allowed to embed the video, apparently.

    So last night LCD Soundsystem played their last farewell concert, and so one of the genuinely great bands of the 00s split up and I never managed to catch them live. In their honour here is what is sometimes my favorite song of all time played live. THere are some audio glitches earlier but they clear up
