Let's Talk About Music!

Meh, I’ll join in with the 80’s too :stuck_out_tongue: . I love the petshop boys, this is one of my fav songs by them though, quite personal to me, so always hits me in the feels.

I hate most 80’s hits due to… incidents driving down to Devon as a child…

But I do love synthwave, vapourwave and 80’s remixes (and the occasional non-synth stuff like Pearl Fishermen, Song to the Siren (This Mortal Coil cover), etc! Peroid remixes are my absolute favourite just for the meme factor.


#189

Well, just curious…

But is there anyone here only listens to a game’s music or BGM?
(I think it’s also the reason why I prefer music without lyrics in general)


#190

Me, 80% of the time. I do enjoy the occasional pop tune or folk metal song.


#191

Heeeeh… I don’t mind with any genre as long as it’s lyric-less. (Oh, poor me)
What kind of game music do you recommend?

I’m stuck here with Endless Legend flybyno’s soundtracks and I surely can expand my collection.


#192

I’ve been listening to this the whole day, some pretty good tracks from an exceptional game


#193

NieR. Drakengard 3. Pokemon (Sun and Moon), Witcher 3, Far Cry: Blood Dragon, Mass Effect series, Cave Story, Final Fantasy XV, old Spyro games, eh, prolly more but I can’t think off the top of my head anymore?

Edit: ffffffff SHADOW hearts

I’m pretty into video game music too :slight_smile: . Some of my favs are the golden axe woodland theme, the max payne theme, mass effect 1’s ending song, all themes from streets of rage 1 and 2 but think my fav game in terms of music is Shenmue 2. It has a good mix of calmer, slower songs and faster songs, again gives me the feels, due to nostalgia, used to play this game all the time before I lost my sight :frowning: . My fav faster song though is probably :


And my fav soothing song is:

I spent a lot of time moving through subcultures in my teens and early 20s–goth, emo, punk, riot grrrl, etc–and the goth part lent itself to a bunch of 80s stuff, especially Bauhaus and its offshoots. Tough to find official videos for Bauhaus and Tones on Tail, but here’s:

Love and Rockets

Joy Division

For a more modern thing I love, here’s Wolf Alice, live at KEXP:


#196

My favourite Pet Shops Boys video, and song. (It’s got Ian McKellan in it. And Vampires!)


#197


^Still amazing to see live.

^Seeing Nick soon:D

^Love this band - it´s a shame their lineup has changed though. I don´t think they´ll be the same without Jade.

^Seeing Bob soon!:smiley:

Nice! I love There She Goes, My Beautiful World. It’s my favorite song about writer’s block. :grin:

Loving this at the moment:

I dreamt of Youth by Daughter last night, and woke up humming it. Synchronicity. Thanks, Jung. It used to be on an advert for a show called Our Girl.

Anyway, moving on. I like drums.


#201

I’m obsessed with B-52 and Yung Bae rn. Its just too catchy.


#202

I liked this comment “The lyrics really speak to me on a personal level”

OOOH do I spy B-52s above!

My brother and I are obsessed with Starset lately. They’re sci-fi rock, and a lot of their songs have that cinematic sound. Also their music videos are stylized like a sci-fi blockbuster, and they’ve done concerts in spacesuits. It’s so geeky, I love it.

Also I’m a sucker for violins+electronic in rock.

I love listening to Kaya Project when I paint. Kind of a mix between electronic and traditional instruments, with a very world-music sound. Favorites:
