Share some of your favorite songs, artists, ideas, creations, etc.

Here's mine...


I'm a huge fan of The Metal but I think I'll start with some of my legendary, less angry, favorites.

Probably my favorite band of all time across all genres is Primus. I've seen them live twice, and I've seen Les Claypool live in his solo act once.

It all started with "Jerry was a Race car driver"




For those who don't know Les, fun fact: he once audition for Metallica and they denied him based solely on the fact that he is far too damn good for them.

I've seen tons of bands live (Slayer, Megadeth, Sepultura, Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Korn, System of a Down, Pantera, Slipknot, Lamb of God - to name a few). But Primus is the band that showed me first hand the largest mosh pit I've ever seen, and it was to this mighty cute song:



A few thousand people went ape shit at the 1:37 mark.


I hold in high regard just about everything Claypool releases; if I had to pick a favorite song it is simply, Here Come The Bastards

    @Techy111 hell yes to Pendulum, love that track.

    @Syndroid +1 for Frontline Assembly. I listened to a lot of that during my software coding all-nighters. And Cybernetika is badass. The 8:53 mark is the kinda shit that causes me to make babies :o

    I jammed a lot of A_k and afx in the 90s, but I listen to it all. 




    Great thread...nothing like good tunes while waiting on your touch.

    @Zenbane: Primus, man.. that brings me back to my middle school days >:) along with Sepultura and Pantera - all great bands. @Techy111: That Gaelic song is good. I like music like that. @Cybereality: I grew up on a lot of dnb/jungle too. Tycho is a good artist along with boc. Have you listen to any Cilocub? He has similar tone to Tycho.

    My favourite Primus song and video has to be Wynona's Big Brown Beaver. I would do almost anything for one of those cowboy outfits!
    I love the intro to Fish On. Such a uniquely Primus sound.

    My tastes vary wildly. When I listen to radios in Spotify or Pandora I typically go for 70's or 80's music. For some reason any Pandora channel I make will eventually settle on Sweet Home Alabama, which I'm sick of, but apparently it matches my taste? The groups that I've liked the longest would be Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel.

    But my overall favourite groups based on how often I listen to them are Electric Six, Lemon Demon and Can't Stop Won't Stop.

    Lately I've been drifting to electro-swing like Alice Francis and Caravan Palace.


    But if I'm going to post one youtube clip here, I'll make it We Got That Booty by The Supermen Lovers. :)

    What the hell. I made the thread an announcement (at least for a bit). Might be a nice break from all the shipping/processing stress.

    @Cybereality: Hey thanks, nice tracks man. I was just listening to Proem last night; that's a good album. Feel free to pm me any other electronic artists in the future. I use to dj/produce some, when I was younger too. 

    Keep'em coming guys. I've been AirPlaying these things to my stereo tonight.  :)

    @AQfumes some of what you shared reminded me of the Avalanches. I love them...



    Interestingly, this song is about a crazy kid named Dexter. But this was before the show/novel.

    Ok, considering all the raging going on about getting something on the 6th, I should post this video instead.
    This is a song from many years ago by the Sydney group Chakradiva. Very old and very crap computer graphics, but if any one song could be my official theme song to sum up my attitude to life, I would want this to be it. (I'm not there yet, but it's something I aspire to).

    "See no point in overtaking
    In the race but we're not racing
    Seen the finish, it's taking all night
    I just like to ride
    No need to move aside
    What have I got against the other guy?
    I just like to drive"

    Plus their bouncy rabbit car is awesome! (But could be rather sickening in VR)

    Another inspirational song that's always stuck with me and is also car themed: Whoever You Are by Geggy Tah.



    I'll finish the car theme with the complete polar opposite of Chakradiva's Drive: the Yellow Line theme and race from the movie Redline. The whole soundtrack is great, but this one just has so much energy!

    I wish I had Sweet JP's hair!

  • ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 6,095 Power Poster
    Great choice @AQfumes

    I listened to a lot of Death Angel back in the day. Had a few of their albums on cassette! In particular was the Album, "Act III." I listened to that start to finish hundreds of time in my early teens.

    I often say that I have no real taste in music as in preferential genres and such. I just love GOOD music. Which I know is a cop out...  because there are genres that generally do nothing for me.

    But in terms of pieces that I will drop all I'm working on to just enjoy the sonical experience I'll give a few picks:

    I am a movie nut so most of my favourites are related to that. From classics like Princes of the Universe:



    Or Flash Gordon:



    But I can't fill the list with only Queen so a bit of more modernities slip in with Daft Punk sometimes:



    Or Vangelis: 



    And while some people called it monotonous, I loved the sound of Fury Road:



    And while Heavy Metal got all the fame I actually prefer the lesser known Nelvana production (yes... the studio behind Carebears):



    Outside of movies I love one musical  in particular:



    And in Anime noone has yet beaten the trio of

    Yoko Kanno:



    Susumu Hirasawa:



    And Joe Hisaishi



    Oh... I almost forgot the Maestro himself!



    And lastly, if I've  been too high brow: 



    And: 




    I would have posted the Chris Hadfield Space Oddity but you guys beat me to it. So I'll stop the list here and immidiately I'll kick my self for forgetting someone obvious.

    I often listen to Jeff Wayne's The War Of The Worlds at work. Epic musical.

    Queen's Flash Gordon is in my Spotify Elite Dangerous list, but I should add Princes Of The Universe too. Highlander isn't scifi (well, Highlander 2 is, but let's never speak of it again), but the song sounds appropriate for a space game. :)

    Here's a cool one. Journey Of The Sorcerer by The Eagles. If you don't recognise which TV series used this as it's theme then you need to watch better shows.
