Sounds Bites

I'm completely ignorant to the downloading of music, thus I employ YouTube to listen to music.

Here's some of my favorites today:

Urge Overkill - Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon (from Pulp Fiction!)

Cowboy Junkies - Sweet Jane

Saint Germain des Prés Café - D'jazz Tribute

Please share your own favorites (music) videos! :D

  • For listening to Internet music, I use LastFM. It doesn't involve downloading. However, I mostly play music cassettes. In my car. At high volume.

    For YouTube I made a Playlist of music I find interesing, "Punkrock from Transylvania". Steampunk goes into the steampunk playlist, of course.
  • I usually use Seeqpod(.com) which lets you search for a piece of music and listen to it without letting you download it which makes it legal I guess.
  • I don't really do internet music, I just listen to what's on my laptop, which is mainly Abney Park, Morphine, Girls against Boys, Porno for Pyros, Alice in Chains, Fiona Apple, Mesh and Project Pitchfork :)
  • Okay, you asked for it! Some of my favourite artists:

    Apocalyptica, Daft Punk, Shonen Knife, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Sufjan Stevens, Coldplay, David Bowie, Midnattsol, Approaching Zero, Epica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nightwish, Birdmonster, Our Lady Peace, Bishop Allen, Happy Party, Xavier Rudd, Wolf Parade, Santana, Oasis, Destroyer, Queen, The Kleptones, Radiohead, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Partrick Wolf, Muse, Peelander-Z, Frog Eyes, Swan Lake, The Decemberists, Sea Wolf, The Guess Who, Destroyer, Loreena McKennitt, Sunset Rubdown, The Dresden Dolls, Vernian Process, Klaxons, Abney Park, Aqualung, Depeche Mode, Cradle of Filth, Stars, Gwar, MC Hawking, The Who, Dethklok, The Mars Volta, Smashing Pumpkins, Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, Emilie Autumn, Within Temptation, Rufus Wainwright, Regina Spektor, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Horrorpops, Feist, Explosions in the Sky, The Alan Parsons Project, The Police, Kraftwerk...

    As far as videos go, look up "Knights of Cydonia" by Muse, "Tonight Tonight" by The Smashing Pumpkins and "Nymphetamine" by Cradle of Filth.

    "Some"? :D

    THat "Knights of Cydonia" video is pretty amusing, if slightly bizarre. But then again, who doesn't like cowboys with rayguns? "Tonight, Tonight" reminds me of an old Jules Verne film--I love how they "land" on the Moon with umbrellas!
    Fiona Apple
    I like her music too, but only for a song or two, then I need something a bit more paced again. ;) (I particularly like her "Shadow Boxer"--nice video clip too!)

    Here's an old one I've always liked:

    Mr. Big - Wild World
  • I love this video by Rufus Wainwright. I mentally associate it with this forum:
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=nNd5R7FQBFg

    (Manly men with handlebar mustachios! Hehe!)
  • Wonderful! Rufus Wainwright is on my list of favourite artists for a reason. I'd never seen that clip before, but I do love his music.
  • Me too. :) I love his voice.
  • Lovely videoclip! At least, up until the point where the men began dancing about in their underwear. Surely, you don't associate that with our forums--Jawa only did his dance once. :P

    I rather liked the song too!
  • It's not underwear it's Victorian/Edwardian exercising garments. They are exercising, just like manly men do. ;)
  • Since when does exercise include jumping about and running in cirlces? :P

    Daft Punk - Around The World Hilarious video clip :D
  • Today I discovered THIS: The Dirge Carolers. Very steampunk (there's goggles), but the music reminds me of Siouxsie Sioux & The Banshees, The Mission and The Sisters of Mercy, among others. On the channel is another clip to see.
  • It's unfortunate the sound quality isn't extraordinary, but it's not a bad song at all! I'm not exceptionally crazy about it, but it's nice. Plus, they're wearing goggles!!
  • I bought two new LPs today, one of the beforementioned Don McLean, albeit not with "American Pie" on it, as well as a record of Dean Martin whom I recently discovered.
  • I finally did manage to get my hands on a record of Don McLean's American Pie--along with about a dozen other new records.

    Some music I've recently discovered/developed a liking for:

    Bob Dylan After seeing I'm not there, I become a fan, though I'd never cared much for his music before. I definitely recommend you see this excellent film! Some particular songs:
    - "One Of Us Must Know"
    - "Stuck Inside of Mobile..."
    - "Stuck In The Middle With You" with Paul Simon (featured in Reservoir Dogs)
    - "How Does It Feel"
    - "It Ain't Me Babe" with Janis Joplin

    Speaking of Janis Joplin...
    - "Me and Bobby McGee"
    - "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart"

    Robert Earl Keene, rather country/folk-like, mixed with some pop influence.
    - "Down That Dustry Trail"
    - "The Bluegrass Widow"
    - "Feelin' Good Again"

    David Gray Not sure if I mentioned him before, but he's got one great song:
    - "Shades of Grey"
  • I just learnt of this group and find their music rather ethereal - have a gander:

  • Slightly too hypnotic perhaps for my tastes, but it makes for nice background music. ;)
  • have just been listening to The Vernian Process as someone here (I believe it was you Ottens) posted a link to their Youtube video of Noir, and I have to say thank you so much. I have been enlightened to a new band that I enjoy! The beauty of the internet. On ewould have never found such a band on MTV nowadays.

    I download music usually with an application called Azureus, it can be used to download pretty much anything, but it's a torrent-based system. Not sure if you're aware of torrents.
  • Let's necromance an old thread, why not? What I'm listening to:

    Dire Straits - Your Latest Trick

    Nancy Sinatra - Bang Bang

    (When I'm not listening to the radio, or not wanting to get up to put on an LP, I use YouTube for music videos, so that's where the link is going.)

    Hmm. I've been all modern recently, listening to mash-ups I've found through the net. The weekend was spent relistening to some of my jazz/swing/ska - I love Royal Crown Review, who I first saw at the Reading Festival, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, who a Bostonian friend introduced me to some years ago - I recommend 'the impression that I get' as a first listen.
  • I don't know about the latter, but I like the sound of that Royald Crown Review!
  • They're most famous for being the swing band in the dance scene of The Mask, and they've been featured on the US Dancing with the Stars, otherwise known as Strictly Come Dancing in the UK.
  • I've been listening to a lot of folk metal recently. A LOT.
  • Mr. Ottens, Doctor, sometimes you scare me. Both Dire Straits and Royal Crown Revue are staples in my playlist.
  • I'm still listening to the same stuff: Project Pitchfork, Abney Park, Mesh, lots of old 80ties wave and some other songs from the Goth scene :)
  • I seem to have rediscovered Rammstein, to my moderate surprise!

    Anyone in particular, Colonel?

    I have indicated previously that my tastes do stretch across the whole gamut. Bizarrely, I had Making Movies playing before Christmas, and watched The Princess Bride, so had quite a Dire Straits episode! And I bought tickets to go to Metallica and Linkin Park in the summer this morning..
  • I've been listening to a lot of folk metal recently.

    Finntroll, Ensiferum, Bathory, Eluveitie, Turisas, Arkona and Wintersun mostly.

    Great winter listening. However, it's gone up to 10 degrees the past few days! Absolutely gorgeous weather.
  • Hmm. It's just started snowing again here - I could be snowed in again tomorrow.

    I'm off to see Metallica and Linkin Park in the August at the new Sonisphere fest...
