There are a couple threads out here about music. the Mp3 request thread, the musician thread, but no simple music thread. So I'm gonna kick it off right here. Talk about your favorite artists, your favorite songs, anything about music. I'll kick it off with this little gold mine.

Download it. You can watch the video here.

Amazing right? Post comments. Post your own music. Go ahead. Unleash your (or other's) muse. :D

Ok folks, I’ve decided it’s about time we had a proper music discussion thread (for all genre's) if you like.


Note: I'll change the pic once I find a cooler one!

Purpose of the thread: This is the place where you can talk about the latest music news/gossip; you can even recommend/suggest new music to other members in here as well. Discussions on music videos and releases are always welcome here too. Everyone’s welcome to join and participate in this thread!

It would be pointless to create several separate threads that focus on individual music-related topics e.g. Music Video thread, Pop thread, Album Cover Art thread, etc. Depending on how popular and active this thread gets maybe we could transfer some of these topics into separate threads? I guess that’s the long-term plan…;)

Note: All concert-related discussions should be done in the concert thread.

There’s also a huge section dedicated to J-Pop & K-Pop music in the Otaku Café section; Japanese and Korean Pop Hangout. Please avoid discussing all J-Pop/K-Pop related topics in this thread.

- No bashing, hot-linking or spamming and please respect each member’s musical tastes/opinions. :smile-big Arigato gozaimasu. Peace.

:zan

Ok, I’ll start up this thread with some general music questions:

- Favourite song atm?
- Best album you purchased/downloaded recently?
- Worst album that you have ever purchased/downloaded?
- Favourite album cover? Do you have one? lol
- What are you looking forward (music-related off course) to the most this year? (E.g. Artist album release, concert ticket release dates, award ceremony, etc, etc)

Man that guy can really play the guitar. I love classical things wih a mordern twist to them. The thought that came to mind when listening to that was 'epic' then that made me think of the band Muse. Anyone heard of them?
Well if you haven't here's the link to the video for their song Knights of Cydonia. These guys make absolutely amazing music and the video is more like a mini film.

The lead singer Matt Bellamy has an absolutely amazing vioce and can make some the the trippiest sounds with his guitar. Listen to this full blast to get the best effect and enjoy!

Wow, I really liked his voice ^^ kinda offbeat, but soothing too.

And speaking of classics with a modern twist, you should check out Trans-Siberian Orchestra:

An Example of their kickass lightshows during their concerts <3
opening of A Mad Russian's Christmas
High quality sound <3

And actually, the kid playing in the link that Glass posted? He's playing one of Trans Siberian Orchestra's songs ^^ Cannon, I think.

Well Canon was made long long ago I believe. Trans-Siberian Orchestra does their own version of it. It's a song played a lot at weddings. I just never knew it would sound so amazing on electric guitar. :blink

And I listen to Muse quite a bit. One of my friends LOVES muse. :amuse

Their newest album, Black Holes and Revelations, was the best thing I'd heard in ages.

I'm currently listening to Snow Patrol, The Kooks and Arctic Monkey. They got great songs and sounds.
Some of the songs on my regular playlist is on my multiply site (http://obi1thejedi.multiply.com/music), but most of the songs there are request that i upload for friends, so don't be surprised if you see any Backstreet Boys or Sesame Street's songs.

I love the Artic Monkeys!!
I think their first single, I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor is still the best, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YO78QZuuf0A.
But When The Sun Goes Down/Scummy Man is a very close second, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=felmxGQ9koc
They became huge quite quickly didnt they?
Yup, i think they're this year's Frans Ferdinand, also a great band.

Good thing I did a search. I was about to create a music thread.

I just saw Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. They're a great band that likes to cover classic songs, though, with a punk twist.

http://www.myspace.com/gimmegimmes

The band is made up of people from different Fat Wreck Chords bands.
