I saw this on another forum I visit and thought it might be fun to do here, so lets see how this goes. Pretty simple: Just post a youtube link to a song you like, and the next person listens to the full song and gives their opinion on it(in about two sentences), then posts a song they like and waits for the next person. I've found a bunch of great songs this way so it might be fun to try here. I'll go first, and start with some easy listening ;)

Lifehouse - Sick Cycle Carousel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2ciInKMhrs)

Not my cup of tea at all, i'm afraid. The video was pretty decent though.

Kasabian - Vlad the Impaler (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM5YDI7ttME)

Bit about the song/band/video - Kasabian are one of my favourite bands. I really didn't like this song when I first heard it, but after seeing it get played live, I can't get enough of it. This is a rather edited, trimmed down version - i'd recomend everyone to look for the longer album version. The video features Noel Fielding of the Mighty Boosh as Vlad - Mighty Boosh is amazing. Check out out. It is directed by Richard Ayaode - sometime Boosh cohort, and also in programmes such as Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and The IT Crowd. Also directed videos for the Arctic Monkeys, Super Furry Animals and Vampire Weekend. Kasabian just won a Brit Award for Best Band in the UK.

I dug it alot, actually. It had a good rythm and beat. Vocals arent really for me, but they dont hurt the song either. I can definitely see me listening to this on my way to work. Which is what I think i'll do tomorrow. Thanks :)

Next up:
Thousand Foot Krutch - Scream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDgBwf5DcLc)

TFK is definitely my favorite band. And the bridge in this song is killer.

02-20-2010, 03:23 AM
I dug it. I definitely wouldn't be surprised if I ended up listening to them more often.

I'm gonna cheat just because A) Someone was gonna do it anyway eventually, and B) Choosing between these two is seriously, for me, like choosing between my left and right testicle. So I figure as long as I promise to never do it again, we can deal. :)

The Misfits: "Dig Up Her Bones" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgSLz5FeXUg
the Misfits: "American Psycho" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzYdMSAkGqA
(No, I haven't figured out the "right" way to post YouTube clips yet, as I really don't use YouTube much. Ah well.)

They're videos too, because as awesome as The Misfits are musically, their music without their visual flair and theatrics is like chocolate without peanut butter. They're also one of the greatest bands to see live in a nightclub setting, and have inspired bands all around the world with their style for decades.

Please enjoy.

Ah, the Misfits. Y'know, there was a time in my early teens when I had a huge poster of them in my room just because it suited the look I was going for. It wasnt until Napster became popular until I actually heard them. Thankfully, I thought they were awesome :)

I love both songs but I'll give the edge to American Psycho since it just has an awesome, haunting quality to it ;)

Next... Hmm...
Drowning Pool - Sinner (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_0Vzep9aoY)

02-27-2010, 03:34 PM
Never been a fan of Drowning Pool but that song is catchy. The vid was funny.

Next: Trivium - Shattering the Skies Above


02-27-2010, 04:21 PM
Again, not my cuppa tea at all. The music itself was pretty cool, but I can't stand the whole vocal thing on that.

This here be my favourite band at the moment: Florence and the Machine. They are making big waves over here in the UK, I got the album a few months ago and haven't stopped listening to it - its quite frankly, haunting, beautiful, amazing. I'm going to see them live in Edinburgh this may, and cannot wait.


02-27-2010, 09:44 PM
The video is blocked in the US. So looked them up on me-space.
Listened to "Dog Days are over"
Enjoyed the experimental aspects and the vocals. But the music is too soft for me and reminds me of suicide scenes from movies.

I give you
Animals as Leaders-Tempting Time

Highly recommend the band to people who enjoy superb guitar playing. Also check out the vids of Tosin playing.

02-27-2010, 10:04 PM
I was feelin the electronica/ambient intro more then the actual track itself... though it was dope as hell. I love chaotic metal paired with keyboards & the like.

& to all I introduce, me.


02-28-2010, 01:26 AM
My two cents? Your lyrics and flow are surprisingly good. No offense, its just I usually expect the worst from people. But yeah, I liked it dude. Only gripe is that its also pretty forgettable. There really wasnt much of a hook going on, though I think thats what you were going for.

Next? Hmm... lets take it back to TFK :P

Thousand Foot Krutch - Fire It Up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cc8cxZ4VCDw&feature=related)

(AWESOME work out song)

02-28-2010, 02:08 PM
Not really something I could listen to regularly but for working out I think it would be good.

Next- Nightwish-Crimson Tide

Thought it was great. Loved the rock and symphony combined. They really pull it off well.

Here we go!

Mike Patton/Peeping Tom We're Not Alone Butterscotch Beatbox Remix


GK Punk
03-02-2010, 05:37 AM
Mike Patton is a musicial genius.

Probably my all time favorite RHCP song, "Knock me down"


03-02-2010, 12:29 PM
Never like RHCP. Not really my style of music.

Next up: Metallica -Remember Tomorrow -Iron Maiden cover. I think I like Maiden's version better but im a huge Metallica fan and they do great cover songs.


03-04-2010, 08:12 AM
^Talking about covering a song and making it yours. I liked how it sounded like Metallica but I could still hear a little Maiden in it. Not a fan of the vocals, but they weren't entirely bad.

I will introduce another Maiden cover, by Cradle of Filth. I havnt been a fan of the band for years, but this is probably one of their coolest covers they've done.


03-04-2010, 12:16 PM
Looks like we got a buncha Metal heads on here! :shredder: Love Maiden and they did a pretty good job. Made it their own but still Maiden.

Next up: pYKNm4qMJTc

Song is about Samurai. Nothing more bad ass than that, well, except for Ninja's.:tcool:

03-04-2010, 04:17 PM
I actually quite liked that - especially the last minute or so. Coulda done without the mad voice guy, but hey - that's that kinda music!

Next up, I gots Super Furry Animals. A Welsh, rather eclectic, mad band - this is probably my favourite song by them:



The end of the song has got a wee 'homage' to you metalheads, also. The video is by an artist called Pete Fowler - he designed alot of the band's album and single art. I've got a shelf full of his vinyl figures - probably a coupla hundred quids' worth.

03-04-2010, 11:37 PM
I dont smoke weed, but this is definitely the kind of thing I'd wanna watch/listen to high. Iiked it as is though, smooth tempo with nice visuals to boot. Nice post!

Hmm... what next? Ah hell, lets get crazy.

Vanilla Ice - Nothing is Real

Ice has probably the worst rep out there(with good reason), but being the music lover I am, I gave some his newer, harder stuff a chance. And y'know what? He's not half bad :)

03-10-2010, 06:28 PM

Haha, cant say I enjoyed it. The only Vanilla Ice song I can stomach is the Ninja rap and thats ONLY bceause of my love for the Tmnt.

Next up: Mos Def -Twilight Speedball (Im a metal head but I also love rap) Song has a sick beat.


03-11-2010, 01:42 PM
Yeah, that quite alright actually. Liked the background music more than the rapping itself, mind you.

The Libertines - What a Waster. Warning, this song has quite a few swear words in it. Mayhap not their best song, but this is the one i've had stuck in my head for the past few days. Loved (and still do) this band so much that I got the word Libertine tattoo'd upon my arm...



03-15-2010, 07:51 PM
^^ I like the whole 'mod' movement but it doesn't do much for me in the modern times. Decent track though.


New Gorillaz. Amazing.

03-15-2010, 08:54 PM
^^You need to listen to the previous post and review it first :P

03-21-2010, 08:37 PM
^^I like the odd Gorillaz song, but they're not my bread and butter. That said, that is a pretty chillin track. Not enough to make me want to purchase the album, but its pretty smooth stuff. Even the second half when it picks up still seems layed back.

I've been really into this song latey:
Vast - "Here" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BH8l1JyKaA4)

Theres no official video for the song, so I just picked an X-Men montage so you'd have something to look at 8)

03-25-2010, 03:38 PM
I am really into this song right now.


Let me know what you think. ;)

03-26-2010, 12:40 AM
It was alright. Nothing I could really get into, though.


03-26-2010, 09:38 AM
Hmm....Intresting. It's nothing I would really listen to, but just because I don't like it doesn't mean you can't like it.


This song makes me laugh. I am not sure why. :lol:
