Still on a Run the Jewels kick, this time – “Lie, Cheat, Steal”
“Different Trains” – Steve Reich, performed by London Contemporary Orchestra – h/t slz, who is in a class about “The Musical Voice” I think? Anyways, they’re doing a lot of crazy things with like speaking pianos and stuff. Also didn’t realize that this is the same guy as behind “It’s Gonna Rain” and “Come Out“. They’re all pretty solid.
“Love Love Peace Peace” – Eurovision 2016 – I was looking for Alex Rybak songs and ended up coming here. I’m so down with how self-aware they are.
I know that chill lofi beats are a meme, but I was in a bit of a funk and these Samurai Champloo style beats helped. I should really watch this anime
“Whatever it Takes” – Imagine Dragons – consistently pleasantly surprised by the range that they can command
“Oh Mama” – Run the Jewels – you gotta love the Rick and Morty / Pulp Fiction but really this is just here for the “notice me senpai” line
“The Sound of Silence” – Disturbed – h/t cesium – holy crap what????? I can’t believe what I listened to but its’ really good
“Conquest” – White Stripes – ok yeah, I like ska and latin influences
“Gold” – Chet Faker – listening to Youtube’s autogenerated playlist for “Oh Mama”. Was surprisingly good and included things like “Lone Digger” and Led Zeppelin that I wouldn’t normally consider in the same genre as RTJ. Unfortunately the sharing features aren’t very good for sharing autogenerated playlists, because the playlist I linked is not the same one that I had originally.
“Gangnam Style” – “Reba McEntire” version – SUPER H/T CESIUM – HOLY CRAP THIS SO GOOD AND BASICALLY THE LESS CLASSY VERSION OF THE CHINESE BLUEGRASS I ALWAYS SHARE OUT (also BELA FLECK AND ABIGAIL WASHBURN ARE MARRIED???)
WAIT WAIT UPDATE – IT’S THIS COVER BY THE CLEVERLYS JUST SPED UP
“That’s All” – Genesis – came on radio while driving around with Mari
“Classical Gas” – Mason Williams – h/t rusch as a cool CMS thing. I like the comments on it, talking about how this is the first music video.
“Tir Na Nog (Nightcore)” – Celtic Woman – h/t tjhance via Discord music party. I kinda dispute that just because it was sped up means it’s nightcore but w/e it’s a good song
“River” – Bishop Briggs – fyeah h/t sadun – IMMEDIATELY appealing because of those southern + beats feels, holy crap
