I just got my first Fleetwood Mac CD -- Rumours! It kept coming up on my Last.FM stream, so I thought I'd check it out.

Anyone else on Last? I know it's not as cool as Pandora, but it and SOMA.FM are my favorite streaming music sites.

oenone - your first Fleetwood Mac album? I thought all you had to do was leave a CD in the car and it gradually turned into "Rumours" (Fleetwood Macs most successful album, and one of their best too).

Either that or "Best of Queen".

I have to thank Azreal44 for the link to Iron Horse and most especially undefinedlust for the outstanding Hayseed Dixie.

I'd like to commend to you the Steely Dan track with a namecheck for WilliamandMary, My Old School. First heard on the 1973 "Countdown to Ecstasy" album, this u-tube video is from 2006.

I hope you've got a silly grin on your face now, 'cause I have :)

I have a pair of "companion" pieces to add to this. These are instrumental pieces from a game series called Super Robot Wars. Sadly, with the exception of two Game Boy Advance installments, and (so far) one Nintendo DS game, this series has never officially graced the North American continent. Well, except in fan-translation ROMs, but I digress a tad.

First up, the theme of Kyosuke Nanbu, pilot of the Alteisen*. This theme tends to cause me to have to keep a close eye on my speedometer when I've got it on in the car... XD

I present, Steel Beowulf.

And coming at you in a direction you didn't even think she was aiming from, piloting the long-range unit, WeissRitter**, the gorgeous sniper lady, and Kyosuke's wingman and girlfriend, Excellen Browning!

Her theme is called "Silver Fallen Angel", but I've found myself renaming it to Platinum Lucifer (or just Platinum Angel) for my music library.

*German for "Old Iron."
**Also German, this time meaning "White Knight."

One of these has probably been heard before, but eh, what the heck.

MC Chris - FTW (amusing live performance)

I'm really digging this cover of Lana Del Rey's "Video Games" -- without the faux vampiness it's got this really sweet, nerdy-gamer-girl vibe.

Emilie Autumn is an artist I've enjoyed so much lately. She's very gloomy, though. This is "I Want My Innocence Back" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C09nZaCWGk4

And this is probably my favorite by Inkubus Sukkubus "Pagan Born" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwShDMo3 ... re=related

Both are kind of Goth Rock, but EA classifies herself more as Victorian while IS as Pagan.

A friend on Livejournal recently posted a clip of Bobby McFerrin with Yo Yo Ma. The sheer joy bursts out of the screen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GczSTQ2nv94

As happens with youtube, I was drawn to another Mcferrin collaboration, this time with Richard Bona.

Then on to the somewhat astonishing Drive

Oh my god! :D I absolutely adore this song even if it is kinda gloomy.

EA has such an anger to her music, I love it. I have her recent concert on my computer :)

Having not seen the original thread, I'm not sure if these have been posted before, but here goes:

The Innocence Mission - Lakes of Canada

The Sundays - When I'm Thinking About You (Live TV)

Miaow - Bubble

Telesma - O(h)m

I was going to comment on each one, but I think I'll let them stand on their own for now, and comment later... :)

A sample from my "Holy Musical Trinity":

From the one that's normally for the heart: Bryan Adams. Just... try to ignore the video and just enjoy the song itself

The one I listen to for the head/body: George Michael

The one I listen to for my spirit (which is fueled by laughter, incidentally): Weird Al Yankovic

And if music were a church (shame it's not), this is the one I'd pick to be "The Prophet" (or "Pope", if it fits your sensibilities): Billy Joel

Song titles aren't used because I like to surprise people. :mrgreen:

One of many bands called "The Barbarellas." Not much I can confirm about this group because there have been a number of bands with this name or similar names. As far as I know, they had one album called "Queen of the Galaxy" (though if anyone knows if they made more, please do tell me). I describe them as if the Beach Boys and the B-52s gave birth to a girl band that sang about movie monsters, being in love, and being in love with movie monsters.

Here' s their best known song, Teenage Werewolf.
