What are you listening too now? (Moosic Thread)

Postby El_Dustino » Sat Jun 29, 2013 2:00 pm

There used to be one of these, but it was preeeetty far back last I recall, and I don't feel too much like accidentally tripping some necroposting rule. (I suppose I could always, k'know, read the rules, but that makes too much sense.) Anyways, just trying to foster some activity, and these threads always get hits due to their simplicity. :3 Plus, sometimes you get to hear music you never knew about.

Anyways, as for me, I am listening to Do Ya Thing by Gorillaz, which has been the song that I use to get myself awake in the morning for a while now. :3

Hmm, I would have never taken the time to listen to the gorlillaz personally, though I have to say their not that bad :l.

Though at the moment at listening to Toeto sung my Megurine Luka, mostly becase it's a good story/song plus the vocals and melody are great in this one ^^

Heh, kind of forgot about this topic I made. X3 While it is a little pointless, eh, why not.

Let's see, a friend of mine who I have not seen in a while recently showed me a song that I really liked.

Laura Veirs - Sun Song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1hxYr3XkaQ

I thought that it was a very pretty little song. :3

And also, Leanan's mentioning of the DKC series has had me listening to the soundtrack for those games some, both the original and orchestrated versions (which are very well done). Here is a pretty song that has always stood out to me.

DKC1 - Aquatic Ambiance

I'm not usually one for fan remixes of game music, but this guy really stood out to me. He does metal versions of plenty of games (usually retro) and is very talented, and recently did a Metroid Prime one. Friggin' solid.

I'm a metal guy in general though. A band I've loved for a while called Alestorm does lots of pirate-themed metal. Yes really, and it's better than it sounds. One of my favorites is a cover of the memetic "You Are a Pirate" from Lazytown:

And yeah, that DKC one is pretty nice. I never got around to playing those games.

Huh, I am not much of a metal person myself, but those sound pretty interesting ideas, so I will have to give them a listen. X3 Thank you for sharing.

I have actually not played the DKC games myself, not counting Returns (though it is a good game), but I want to... especially because, due to an error, I am now in posession of a DKC1 cart, but I don't have an SNES. X3

Also, I stumbled upon this while youtubing (just listening to some music as I prepare to work on my Japanese homework), and thought I would share, just because this specific track from Mother 3i has such a great mix of Mother 3's excellent music. It is not remixed, just cleaned up because it is no longer compressed for the GBA.

That song is actually pretty catchy if you don't know what its about. But the title kind of gives it Way...

I've been enjoying the band Sleigh Bells lately.
First heard them on the Lollipop Chainsaw soundtrack with: Riot Rhythm
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdSRqpQ ... ata_player

But currently listening to: Comeback Kid
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=780FZKf ... ata_player

If you like loud noisy guitar and thumping drums with a totally out of place sweet sounding female vocalist, its perfect for you. :)

So Lou Reed died just recently, that was pretty unexpected. I only really got into his music recently, but still, that was upsetting. :/

So, I listened to some of his music today. This one has (evidently) been on the telly recently, so it seems fitting to share.

Just got around to those Sleigh Bells songs, and they were pretty good. :3 I did enjoy the contrast between the actual music and the vocals. It also makes me want to pick up LC even more. X3 Maybe if I don't pick up a Wii U for myself this month.

Anyways, the past day or two I have really been enjoying the Gorillaz song Dub Dumb. :3 Probably not the best song for someone just getting into Gorillaz, it's not even a B Side if I recall, but, I enjoy it. :3

The other song on my mind is not even an actual Gorillaz song, but a fan made song using work from Damon Albarn, Cee Lo Green, and someone who we don't really know. Surprisingly enjoyable. :3

I have recently found myself listening to Cara Mia from Portal 2 often. :3 If you want to avoid spoilers and still listen, just avoid the translated lyrics (the song is in Latin, or Italian, but I think it's Latin), but even then, the lyrics themselves do not spoil much. Even outside of the context of the game, I just appreciate how pretty the song is, and how good Ellen McLain's vocals are.
