Let's Talk About Music!


#312

5 favorite songs in no particular order:

  • “We’ll be Counting Stars” by One Republic
  • “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba
  • “All The Way For You” by Poets of the Fall
  • “Emperor’s New Clothes” by Panic! At The Disco
  • “The Safety Dance” by Men Without Hat

My taste in music usually is as emo as it can be. Like so I really enjoy such bands as previously metioned Panic! At The Disco and Poets of the Fall, Hollywood Undead are really enjoyable with there “war” themes (and I’m hella proud that I had a chance to be on their concerts, cause hearing and seeing all this bands in live was like the best expirience in my life), Starset and Bring Me The Horizon. And I freaking love those darkish song covers by Chase Holfelder. They’re the most fun.
In the same time, I also really like some kind of chil and lively Gaelic music (for example, songs by Celtic Woman) and have a soft spot for good German bands like Oomph! or Unhelig.

Hoho! Im a metal kinda gal too!
The Sword - Age of Winter ,were my first foray into the metal genre.
I was severely heartbroken over Strapping Young Lads
breaking up, I loved em but alas.~ I really loved the albums Alien, and City by them.

Luckily, we now have Devin Townsend Project instead! Same guy! I reccomend the album Deconstruction by him its magnificent and the lyrics are great as always.

When YouTube recommends actual good music…

I’m having an Archie Roach kind of day (okay, it’s really been an Archie Roach kind of month).

… I can’t choose one of his songs to post? Some of his albums were on sale a few weeks ago and I splurged like nobody’s business and they’ve been playing on a constant loop.

ETA: I changed my mind - Summer Of My Life is what I call the best song I’ve ever heard from Archie Roach. Not his most famous but probably the one that I relate to the most. I genuinely can’t explain why I relate to it which is probably why I was reluctant to mention it.


#317

Does anyone know any songs like Broken Crown or Little Lion Man? Ive tried listening to other Mumford and Sons songs, but theyre all really different from those two.

Also just going to list my favorite songs, in no particular order

  1. Who will pray- We Came As Romans
  2. King of Anything- Beartooth
  3. My Demons- Starset

Have you tried listening to “Full Circle” by Half Moon Run? It sounds pretty similar, tho lyrics aren’t as strong, I guess.
Or “Battles” by Hudson Taylor.

What is everyones opinion on Kpop? I feel like Im the only one that hates it, but Im curious to see if other people feel the same.


#321

I don’t actually like K-pop, I’m neutral, I just happen to like the song and K-dramas are good too (although I rarely watch, I haven’t finish a series either).

Besides, how could I ignore a group of bishies–er, boy band, they’re attractive as hell with all that dance moves while singing. Their hair color feels like they came out from a manga.


#322

Unfortunately, I don’t know enough about Kpop to comment. I’ll leave that question to others. :frowning: I’m going to rant about stuff I do know about instead.

I’m absolutely in love with a band called IAMX. Chris Corner (lead singer, significantly involved in the music) started in the 90s grunge band Sneaker Pimps fronted by Kelli Ali. When she left, he became the lead singer. Later, he put together the IAMX project. He’s a brilliant singer and musician. The music has a dramatic, cathartic flair. Each album has its own flavor and can be pretty experimental. They are not well-known, which is criminal. Sneaker Pimps has recently gotten back together, and they’re making a new album. Yay. Take my money.

I adore 90’s grunge and trip hop, particularly female-fronted bands. Garbage , Poe, Morcheeba (fave songs: Trigger Hippie, Enjoy the Ride), Portishead, Fiona Apple, Tricky, Massive Attack, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, and etc…

I like Florence and the Machine, but I prefer their sad songs (Girl with One Eye, What kind of Man, What the Water Gave Me, etc.) over their happier stuff. I also like Alt-J and Phantogram (New album “Three” is great). I’ll even admit to liking Marilyn Manson.

Weird bands I discovered on youtube that I enjoy: Vermillion Lies (songs: Shark’s Serenade and Circus Apocalypse) and Hannah Fury (song: No Man Alive)

I enjoy Emilie Autumn, although I might have outgrown her music. I’m not sure. Still, she appealed to me a lot at one point in my life.

So, anyway, I like pretty emotional, dramatic music as a rule.

I used to be a BIG fan of Kpop when I was a kid. Still am, I guess, but not as much when I was 10 years old. Doesn’t help when Nobody was everywhere in the radio. Like, everywhere. And Dara was an actress in the Philippines, so when 2NE1 took off in Korea, the group, and Kpop, took off in the country. Also, K-Drama is a big thing here, so obviously the fans are gonna eat it up.

I only listen to, like, three groups: SNSD, Black Pink, and Red Velvet. I never really listened to 2NE1 that much, only became a fan just before they broke up (kinda like MCR…). f(x), I guess I listen to them occasionally. I don’t listen to the guy groups. Dunno why. I also don’t know any of the newer groups aside from Black Pink,Red Velvet, and BTS. So my knowledge of Kpop is…outdated and limited.


#324

I recently kind of re-discovered BoA? I vaguely remember her attempt to break into the American mainstream in the early 2000s (I remember loving Eat You Up (still do tbh)) and I think she did some openings/endings for anime

Anyways I found some of her more recent stuff like CAMO and Fox and I still really like her voice and style. There’s also one song of her’s I really liked that was only released in Japanese but I can’t seem to remember the name of or find anymore :cry:


#325

When it comes down to K-pop, I actually like official music videos more than the music itself. There’s always something incredibly satisfying in watching a group of people move synchronically and Korean singers often do have really nice choreography.
Otherwise K-pop just like J-pop isn’t my type of music. When I was at school the all-consuming love for it from my relatives seemes quite bizarre for me, to be honest. And terrifying. Fangirls are scary D:

I do like some songs though. But they are eather some very dynamic songs from youtube vids or the songs I used to dance to on PIU.


#326

Current favorite EBM/Industrial/Electro-Industrial songs:

@augustus27 I don’t hate K-pop I just find it slightly less intolerable than mainstream pop and K-hip hop slightly more intolerable than mainstream hip-hop. I’d hate if I was being forced to listen to it 24/7.


#327

My current favorite artist is Will Hoge, who does this awesome liberal country/rock/bluegrass combo thing that is hard to explain, but he’s an incredibly talented and authentic dude with great material and a great voice. My wife and I have seen him twice in concert in the last 12 months, small shows with like 300 people where we got to sit/stand in the front. Great intimate experience.

I will work at least one of his song titles into a scene of CCH2 one way or the other.


#328

I’ve been a fan of Linkin Park since I was nine and I’ve never loved any music more than theirs.

Okazaki Ritsuko has the voice of an angel and her songs are so pure and cheerful it always make me feel both sad and happy at the same time.

And then there’s Krezip, I really liked their music when I was younger and the leadsinger’s voice is really pretty.


#329

Recently I started listening to a bunch of anti-idol groups from Japan. I don’t really like the music, but I just love that these groups exists. You’re probably thinking: “what the heck is anti-idol?” Well it’s basically an idol group but flipped on its head. The idols are no longer pure and innocence, but wacky and disturbing. Babymetal is an anti idol group. There’s also Kamen Joshi, an idol group where everyone wear Jason mask and sing about Trump. You get the idea. I think it’s interesting and a great source of entertainment.

Kamen Joshi:

So this is a pretty fun song to wash dishes to because it pushed me to picture the woman it was written for. I can just imagine this lady suddenly having a BAMF moment where she rises to power, dropping her rivals like lead weights in the sea, taking what she’s worked so hard for and just basking in the fact that she is on top of the world and they’re all grovelling at her feet. I may have a thing for deeply ambitious women who stage hostile takeovers set to a dramatic soundtrack.


#331

I’ve liked Seether for a long time, but I forget just how powerful their songs can get sometimes, especially this one.

(The message is pretty obvious with the music video. I still feel bad for Shaun, the lead singer.)


#332

I listen to a lot of different things like an odd amount of Irish music and game osts, but above all I love the vocalist Michael Kiske, one of the few metal singers to retain his voice from youth to now.
He’s also a dork and it’s adorable.




Sorry for posting so many links it was impossible to even pick just three songs with him let alone one.
