Number nine... number nine... number nine... number nine... number nine...
>Anyway, how can you not like them? They just simply made good music.
They were and are still popular. It's good enough of a reason for a bunch of stuck-up hypocrites to passionately hate them.
I have a title for which the Beatles should be legendary, regardless of anything else concerning their other songs, songwriting, and live performances:
I am the Walrus
People able to pull this off deserve to be at the pantheon of humanity.
lol Paul is dead.
Anyways, anyone who says they hate the Beatles are liars. They may hate what they stand for, but chances are they like the songs.
>>15 Have you seen the shite he thinks is better than the Beatles? Captain flipping Beefheart and The Red Crayola.
Freedom of partiality aside, if you agree with this deduction then you are a tit.
This guy is totally full of shit. I want to reach through the Internet and slap his spaghetti-stuffed mouth silly.
It's been a long time since I've read such bad music "criticism".
I just stumbled onto here and honestly, does anyone even post here anymore? The thread was started in 2006 with less than 30 responses to date, it seems pointless to even come here or try to respond when you probably won't get an answer from people long gone.
Well, you never know! Maybe I might just get a response to years later when that particular user decides to revisit this board out of boredom.
Quite a nice site. Tons of music and Amiga productions from the past and present. Too bad it is not sorted.
Anyway, who is interested in Geek stuff, here the link!
Spam or not, this is actually not half bad.
Who here likes Xenharmonic music?
Shit off p2p?
Currently: Speakerboxxx - Bow Tie
Depeche Mode - Waiting For The Night
It hit me recently that the whole Violator album is just amazingly well produced, and I somehow never really listened through it before.
some old reggae
thanks for reminding me about that song. I love this. that would be perfect for a valentine's day mixtape
Damn large collection of Music, Demos and stuff.... Nothing beats classic Demotunes from the Amiga or C64 time!
Some jap bossa. It's kind of a shame there aren't too many interested in the style, I enjoy it a lot.
This thread is for the discussion of Japanese bands and artists who are not as well known in the west as say, Ayumi Hamasaki, The Pillows, and Gackt.
That is, not to put Gackt and the Pillows in the same boat. . .
Anyway, what are your favorite artists from Japan that are less known? I know mine. She's actually my favorite artist of all time. "Rurutia" (「ルルチア」、 ｓｏｍｅｔｉｍｅｓ 「ルルテイア」) is great. The thing is, I have only heard one album from her. Her "R" album. I actually listen to it on repeat over and over for days. I have a certain order for the songs on it, and if they are not played in that order it just doesn't sound right. Do you know Rurutia, and if her other work is good?
Other than Rurutia I like Rie Fu. She sings in both English and Japanese, so being bilingual, it is very fun listening to her music.
I have only heard one song from "Mai Kurai", called "Secret of my Heart". It is my girlfriends favorite song. I like it, but I haven't heard anymore of Mai Kurai. Is she good?
I also like Yumi, though I have only heard "New World" from her.
I'm really on a Enjo-G kick right now.
Basically he teams up with Bubble-B, and they do some silly songs.
Remember Toyama Kōichi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koichi_Toyama)? The crazy-awesome bald guy who first stood for election to the post of Tokyo Governor in 2007 and announced that his platform was to scrap the whole "horrible nation" and build a new one from scratch, and who then in 2008 made a video complaining that he wasn't eligible as a POTUS candidate even though the US government meddles all over the world as if it were their own territory?
Yeah, turns out he's a pretty good singer. Check out his cover of Sada Masashi's hit "Tsugunai": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlI19eDRDao
And here's his original theme song for Golgo 13: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEOTWk8VZAQ
Piko! He's not really well known but he's getting there.
Himeka too. She's a French-canadian who sings in Japanese.
Yohio is pretty new. He's Swedish and sings in Japanese.
Hmm.... who else...
Kaya, Sekihan, Mi-chan, Root 5, Satsuki(I think), Sayuri Sagawara,
Shikata Akiko, Yousei Teikoku, Plastic Tree, Supercell, Paradeis, Juka.....
I love Yuki! I don't believe her age!!!
http://www.mapofmetal.com/ comes with a handy collection of sample songs for each subgenre they present. Rather handy.
How about Burzum?
Fucking awesome live band. They play their own style of grindcore.
Also, for the black metal fans: Damaar.
Old-school Metallica is the best when Cliff was still alive. "And Justice For All" was still good, but most of their later stuff was rather mediocre. "Master of Puppets" best album ever!
All of the ones below are power metal:
Rhapsody (of fire)
Also Zero Degree is some good medolic death metal in my opinion
Dark Angel is a pure trash metal band. Give it a shot
Who do you like?
Also I made a poll, you can select as many groups as you like:
I don't follow Japanese idols, but I voted for AKB48, because I see her(it?) mentioned all the time, so she must be the best!
I'm pretty new to the whole genre actually, I hardly know any of the names of the songs I like. I've just been listening to some Mozart and Beethoven cds I've had laying around (not sure how they even got here lol), and I realized this is one of the genres I just haven't explored at all that has so much substance to it. Can't believe I've just given it a pass for so long.
I'd like to get more into it, so I'm looking for some suggestions.
So, what are some of your favorite classical compositions, /music/?
While they're probably the most mainstream you'll find, my favourites include Pachelbel's Canon in D, Vivaldi's Four Seasons and most of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. I also like Nessun Dorma, whose composer's name escapes me at present.
I must confess, alas, that I haven't listened to anything particularly exotic. Most of my experience with classical music comes from my parents' TimeLife 50-CD set they'd bought in the mid-90s.
>>2 has some very good suggestions, but at some point, once you get used to those artists, I would really suggest looking at some modern classical, as well as some early classical because each period is very distinctive.
classical (1730–1820) is usually lighter than baroque and more partial to melody, and baroque compositions are often very sophisticated and longer-lasting. Medieval classical uses harmonies in a very different sense than classical.
Some personal fav's
Josquin des Prez, Mattaeus Pipelare, Dufay, Hildegard, Alfonso, Machaut,Perotin, Vitry, Dunstaple, Ockegham
Cage, Ives, Schnittke, ligeti, Reich, Schoenberg, Bartok, Stravinsky, Webern, Britten, Hindemith
What exactly distinguishes 20th century classical from modern classical? I stick to the latter when describing music that falls into this category, the catagory being music made since the last half of the 20th century.
Also, how does everyone feel about classically inspired music that isn't contemporary classical (à la neoclassical)?
