What kind of music are you enjoying right now?
« on: Tue, 19 April 2011, 12:17:58 »
This thread is supposed to pick up where this one left off, this time without creative spelling in the title. ;)

I'll start with two for quadibloc, so expect something on the lighter side.

First there's a lady from the UK you might enjoy if you liked the Carpenters...

...and then we have a Dutch singer who does poppy swing jazz:

Staying in rather listenable yet fairly different territory, I finally got an album from this lady recently who likes to explore somewhat unusual connections among musical cultures:

Hardware in signatures clutters Google search results. There should be a field in the profile for that (again).

This message was probably typed on a vintage G80-3000 with blues. Double-shots, baby. :D

I'm listening to this Japanese kid (who I think lives in Sweden) who does awesome acoustic covers of songs:

It's nice to be remembered. There is so much beautiful music on YouTube - but it's still difficult to find something that I enjoy that can hold up its head in such august company.

Here's a jazz version of an almost forgotten melody that was a big hit in its day,

[youtube]wVp7Q3F0B6c[/youtube]

and here's another song that made it to the charts

[youtube]yKnG_9q4crA[/youtube]

I also came across this; as it was not a live performance, I hesitated to include it at first, but it's a lovely song, the first hit performance from a then-obscure songwriter who, many years later, became a well-known singer-songwriter with hits like "It's Too Late" and "I Feel the Earth Move"...

[youtube]MZFIMeg15BA[/youtube]

and so I thought that I really should work it in to the tapestry of my post.

The song was originally recorded by Bobby Vee, for whom Carole King wrote other songs, but it ended up as just an album track rather than a single. Here's a live performance of this song by a famous British singer:

[youtube]De0_zZ7qQDA[/youtube]

who, in an odd parallel, recorded "It's My Party" as a mere album track before Lesley Gore made it her big breakthrough hit.

My latest Baroque discovery is John Stanley. I only really like the second movement of this, from 4:07-5:57. My favourite part is 4:45-5:03.

Only 18 views - compare that with a stupid Bieber video.

You must admit that appreciating Telemann makes more demands of the listener than appreciating Justin Bieber - thus, while deploring popular taste, one has to also recognize that one can't be too surprised.

Also, just a little clicking on the suggested videos over on the left, and a few pages away, I find this:

[youtube]Bo1FxTlHxuc[/youtube]

At 35,053 views, no doubt it is still not up there with Mr. Bieber, but it's not quite as atrocious.

EDIT: I looked at the Justin Bieber video cited in this thread, and found that it had over half a billion views. I have to wonder if that's not some kind of program bug; tens of millions, I expected; a sizable fraction of the global population, I did not.

Been raping the "play" button on this. I'm guessing each time I do that Intel's stock goes up a point.

The first two are house/dance, the third is more dubstep. Electronica is a bit different...

Dubstep is sheeeet - there's a couple songs I like, that Ellie Goulding remix being the one I like most.

I usually listen to the below stuff, but since the weather is so nice it's got me listening to summer house tunes :p

@Ripster - I searched youtube for a better video (girl is haawt) and I think she's Jolin Tsai. If that's the case, she had a big sex scandal a few years back. Edison Chen (guy from Infernal Affairs, that's how I found out about this thing) had sex tapes from him with this girl, Maggie Q (fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine), and some other girls.

EDIT: Panda, I've got some metal for you:

My favorite metal song :p I used to listen to metal, I still have a pandora station with it for when I work out

the vocals just killed it, nevertheless it was pretty good. The singer sounds like he was just infected with the T-Virus and he's angry that the local mcdonalds is not serving breakfast (obviously due to be being overrun with a zombie apocalypse).

this is more of the metal that I enjoy these days

Dream Theater is the kind of music I imagine people with long hair and beards listen to while playing Warhammer or D&D...it's so melodic. I like ripping peoples faces off.

Here's a little something:

As this live performance seems to be a little short, here's another (much later) one:

[youtube]Q7jZeXvpyZQ[/youtube]

Oh, and it had 674,074 views - not up there with Justin Bieber, but still enough to make me think there is some hope for humanity yet.

And here's a cover version that's a little different:
