SKNET Radio - Post random songs
« on: August 22, 2011, 08:35:49 PM »
Post 'em because you love 'em, hate'em, or you just don't know!


In the latter category, this Oingo Boingo "classic" came on my radio the other day and really made me think... WTF?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_tVZFZ5PR4

I think most people have already heard or heard of this song, know the movie or TV show, but just listening to it as a song now you realize... it's crazy. There's a lot going on here, it's frenetic, wacky, eclectic, and just plain weird both in instrumentation (though not so much for the 80's) and lyrical content, yet it manages to sound cohesive and... catchy, with a couple of different hooks that'll get stuck in your head for the right reasons. Oingo Boingo man, what else would you expect from a band fronted by Danny Elfman?

Well, probably not this. :ganishka:

Wow, when it started it really sounded like a Sonic 2 level for some reason. That heavy synth is so reminiscent of the Genesis sound processor to me.

Great idea for a thread. I've got a couple in mind, as I recently made a playlist on Youtube of songs to listen to while browsing the Web.

This first one was introduced to me by Aaz. It's a French electronic artist named Madeon, and it's definitely in the LOVE category: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTx3G6h2xyA

It should be noted that this was a live mashup as you'll see in the video. But the star is the music, obviously.

I know exactly what you mean, but this is the closest I could find:

Wow, and for those curious about who's who, someone made a video for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2ExVvhzfCY

  Winds over Neo Tokyo - Akira
I play the whole soundtrack every now and then when I travel. It's phenomenal!

I've had these 5 songs on a playlist and looping it all day in the background while at work. Just chill music. from members of Anoice and Matryoshka.

I've been on a massive Araabmuzik kick and I think he scores the album of the year for me ... I can't find a decent version of his songs off the album Electronic Dream, the ones on YTube are 'meh' cos you can't hear the bass.

harsh and ugly
Haha! I actually spun my CD today! Cool coincidence. It's been dark, rainy and cool outside ... been playing Doom all day amidst watching War Of The Worlds, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Road and Akira. Heard d.usk yet? It's their new band.
