It's like sharing quotes from a novel, but they're lines from lyrics. First one:
LiSA - Ichiban no Takaramono (My Most Precious Treasure)
"Even if I’m alone, I’ll go on, even if I want to die
I can hear your voice, saying, 'You mustn’t die'
Even if it’s tough, even if I cry in loneliness
Deep in my heart, I feel warmth
Cycling and flowing, the times change
I can’t recall what happened anymore
But if I try closing my eyes, there’s someone’s laughter
Somehow that’s my most precious treasure now"
We are not the same I am a martian
And I'm hotter than summer rain like Carl Thomas
Lock, load, ready to aim at any target
I could get your brains for a bargain
Like I bought it from target
Hip hop is my supermarket
Shopping cart full of fake hip hop artists
I'm starving, sorry I gotta eat all it
And I'll be back in the morning
My Main Man,
He had 2 strikes, slipped
Got arrested and flipped
He screamed Thug Life and emptied a clip
That's how we runnin from the police
I was there, in the back of the room, when you testified
With your pitchfork tongue, you licked your lips, and
We're never gonna know how hard you cried
When you petitioned and your access was denied
Till the venom in your veins is satisfied
Till you suffocate and swallow down the pride
MAN I GO TO WORK
CALL ME SPONGEBOB
STACKIN' CRABBY PATTIES
BITCH I GO TO WORK
DO MY CAT DADDY
CAT DADDY CA-CAT DADDY
CAT DADDY CA-CAT DADDY
Are we just living ghosts,
Waiting to be freed?
Stuck at a tipping point,
We never dare exceed?
And what if no-one comes,
To liberate our souls?
And all of this is all there is,
To make us whole?
-- Assemblage 23 - Ghosts
Rising like a broken bone
Throught a sea of flesh
This world is given
1349 - I Am Abomination
So I reach for her hand
And her eyes turn to poison
And her hair turns to splinters
And her flesh turns to brine
She leaps cross the room
She stands in the window
Screams that my firstborn
will surely be blind
No worldly word I could say could be golden
You're a star-belly sneech
You suck like a leach
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you bitch
So you can get rich
But your boss gets richer off you
Well you'll work harder
With a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers
Till you starve
Then your head is skewered on a stake
Right now I'm listening to out of the blue by Electric Light Orchestra because I liked Time.
It's pretty good so far.
I am getting into classical music. Right now I'm listening to Mozart and branching out from there. There is so much classical music out there, that I could listen all my life and never hear it all. Pretty neat thought
I recently found Crystal Castle and am listening to their Crystal Castles album.
Number nine... number nine... number nine... number nine... number nine...
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.
The beach boys are better.
Woah, you're right. I didn't even notice how old this thread was. Now it feels weird, like I'm standing in a graveyard.
The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.
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!!!
