What the heck, I'll bite.

My favorite song EVER: (Not exactly obscure, but it still rocks): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54IN3URGuM8 Shout by Tears for Fears. Until I figure out how to get fancy with the URLs you'll have to deal with a long YouTube web address. :P

In second place (for now at least) is True Faith by New Order: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzeNAUOp17c

And then there's this little French tune I like more for the music than the lyrics (as I'm learning German, not French :lol:): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohU-fXaKOPU L'Aventurier, by Indochine.

Yup, I love the 80s. <3

*high five* Love that track by Tears for Fears.

Here's how you post a short url:

replace the parenthesis with brackets: []

Like so: Battle Garegga OST - Stage 5

Purity Ring--Obedear

They're still working on their debut album, so there are only like four songs on YouTube so far, but this is the most excited I've been for an album in awhile.

Hårgalåten, a very dangerous tune. The Devil himself used it to make some foolish young people dance to death and beyond as punishment for holding a dance on a Sunday.

I was reminded of an old favourite recently, dug the album out of the archives, and realised once again just how good this band was. (The Faces, Nod's As Good As A Wink . . . To A Blind Horse. Don't ask)

They are not a million miles from one of T's favourite bands, The Who.

Stay With Me
Miss Judy's Farm
Too Bad

The last link is to 45 minutes of the band on the BBC live - a really great set, energetic, everyone obviously having a lot of fun, excellent musicianship from all and no quarter asked or given.
BBC concert, 1972 (the full concert from which the first two excerpts were taken) - No passengers here.
1) Three Button Hand-me Down
2) Maybe I'm Amazed
3) Too Much Woman / Street Fighting Man
4) Miss Judy's Farm
5) Love In Vain
6) Stay With Me
7) I'm Losing You

Yes, that is Rod Stewart, bouncing around like a spring lamb and Ron Wood before he became a Strolling Roan.

And now, the oldest music no one's heard. The following is a reconstructed arrangement of the "Seikilos Epitaph" (c. 200 B.C.E. - 100 C.E.), the earliest surviving complete musical composition with lyrics and notation. It's performed by the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble (SAVAE). See the YouTube page for the transliteration, translation and other information.

I meant to post this back when we were talking about the journey from childhood to adulthood(and the slightly heartbreaking changes it brings on us), but it kept slipping my mind. So, about a month later (I... think? the days have slightly blurred together for me, this semester), I give you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4934z9-xjg a rather relevant song to that topic.

Arrgh

Helen Folasade Adu, her band of more that twenty years standing, flawless musicianship, superb video by Sophie Muller:

Goshwowohboyohboy. Stone me, that's good.

From the Lovers Live DVD, worth the cover price for this track alone.

Sharing mine;

It's very easy to listen; kind of jazz-y...or maybe just plain J-pop. But it's simple and peaceful.
