Post a song and why you love it!  :)

This is what you want. This is what you get.

Igor Boxx—"Downfall"
This song is just so god damn cinematic! I imagine Tarantinoesque story unfolding on the streets of Weimar Republic era Breslau. Long shadows on cobblestone streets. Smokey bars filled with strange characters. A killer in a dark cloak, hiding in a doorway.

This is what you want. This is what you get.

A nice one. The album is a little gem and they're pretty overlooked. Shame they only did one album.

Only God knows.

The Corrs - What Can I Do 1998
This was the song that I really really liked in 1998 and since then I love their music.
I prefer this version more than Tin Tin Out Remix 1998.

Not a masterpiece, but I've liked Rick Rack ever since I bought this album in a second-hand shop:-

The simplicity of the song suits very well the childish ideas, the nonsense of rickety-rack that a kid might invent. And who hasn't felt a conflict between what we want, and what our parents hoped for? This song feels like such a personal statement from GR, and even more so after I met a guy who had gone to school with GR in Paisley, Scotland. He told me, "Gerry didn't seem special in any way. We were all surprised when he became famous" But this song isn't just an soft-focus exercise in nostalgia, because with the slightest of deft touches GR twists in a knife, with a bleak statement of intent.


Paisley, a suitable place to grow up being ordinary:

To get lost is to learn the way.

Æ MAK - Love Flush
released 2018
a catchy and fun pop song

"Brooding" and pissed off at the same time

Return to Forever - No Mystery

The acoustic title track from the 1975 album with the same title and probably my favorite song from this band. It's a quirky and very recognizably them, has great performances and is just beautiful. Al Di Meola, who plays guitar, is a teenager on this record.

Edit: Derp, Meola was 20 :laughing:

Viva Forever
by Spice Girls

Released 1998
My number one from the spice girls.
I have always loved that song.

Orkestra Obsolete play Blue Monday using 1930s instruments
The title says it all. This is New Order's "Blue Monday" played on 90 year old instruments. I first heard this several years ago and fell in love with it. I would really like to hear more of this kind of thing, but I think these guys aren't a real band. If anyone has suggestions for something similar, I'm all ears.

This is what you want. This is what you get.

I'm a big fan of the 1973 movie The Wicker Man and of course adore the soundtrack. The most wondrous piece of music is, of course, Willow's Song, the song she sings while nakedly trying to seduce sergeant Howie in the movie.

How a maid can milk a bull
And every stroke a bucket full

One of my favorite bits of lyric.

Concerto Caledonia - Old Sir Symon the King
a friend recommended to me, 10 years ago (more or less) and since then i love it.

Gåte - Sjå Attende
discovred a few years ago, their second album is my favourite, their new stuff is a bit boring.

I think this is a pretty typical favourite among casual Talking Heads fans. I absolutely love This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody).

It's uplifting. It's soothing. It's fairly simple, but brilliant <3

Happiness is a warm manatee

Might be spoiling an upcoming review, but I love the song Silhouettes by Aksak Maboul from their 2021 album Figures.

I don't think it's a song that necessarily grabs you on first listen, but there's a lot to like here, I think. I enjoy the electric piano and bass and I find the synth hook so peculiar. I like Veronique's vocals that seem so authentic. Some of the ideas thrown in, like the sounds of the cafe and the later spoken word bit, just sound so great to my ears.
