I saw a very very local production of this show a few years back. I remember enjoying it quite a bit. The music was great- just what I would expect from Mr. Stephen Sondheim. This is a short and sweet song sung by the female lead. Don't really think much of it out of context, but it's pleasant nonetheless.
I Really Love You Babe (Precision Debating)
T. Rex is my main man. This track is from Precious Star. I bought this album last October while I was in Los Angeles. I remember listening to this song in particular on the drive back to the hotel. It's repetitive, but has a good beat and swagger. Could possibly get annoying after a while, though. I'm glad it's just 3 minutes long. I believe the only lyrics are, in fact, "I really love ya, babe" repeated throughout the entire song. Marc has better, for sure.
Black Arrow, Bleeding Heart
I first heard of Whiskeytown from their cover of Fleetwood Mac's Dreams. …
15 mai 2008, 3h50m par theempathogenFor those unschooled in the analogue glory of The Presets, I'm linking to videos and/or tracks from their album Beams. I'm going to go through the entire thing.
The first track is Steamworks:
After that comes Are You The One:
Now the third track is the one that started it all for me. It's called Down Down Down.
Next is the beautiful video for The Girl and the Sea!
After that comes Black Background. Honestly, this just looks like animated Rorschach tests to me. Meh...
The next track is called Worms. Shock and horror, I can't find a video for it! I can, however, find one for the next track, called Kitty In The Middle.
After that comes Hill Stuck. No video for that, either…
27 jan. 2007, 18h23m par FinnHawkI just wanted to list some of my all-time favourite tracks/songs... I highly recommend them (I left off some of my mainstream favourites)
>> Cordelia (Of course I have many other faves by The Hip, but this one wasn't one of their big hits. It wasn't even a single)
>> What Would You Do? (Fuck You George Bush!!!)
>> 5000 Watts (actually they have many other tracks that I like just as much if not more, including: Nothing is Cool, King Me, Walk On, 30 in The Club)
>> Street Justice (and Easy Love)
>> Steamworks (actually they have a lot of great tracks including: Are You The One, Down Down Down, Girl and the Sea, Kitty in the Middle)
>> And If Venice Is Sinking (other faves include Home for a Rest, 5 Free Minutes, among others)
>> Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia) (love the horns!)
>> The Switch (other faves: Chase The Sun, Stop Me)
20 jan. 2007, 23h40m par jnowTriple J's hottest 100 is here, and, having developed a taste in music now, I decided to consider songs outside the usual mainstream stuff as I did last year. My shortlist originally consisted of 62 songs, and it was quite difficult to get that down to the required 10. I sat on 20 songs for ages, and in the end something had to go. Anyway, I finished it off finally, and here is my top 10, in alphabetical order:
Standing in the Way of Control - Any artist who can stand there and essentially say "screw you, i'm fat and my band is gay and i don't care" is tops in my book. I loved this song, and i also found it useful when i studied a course called "Control" and i wasn't in the mood to study.
Inside/Outside - I loved this song on their debut album. I mean, some of their other tracks were good too, but i think this one was the peak of the album.
Empire - I have already said that i love Kasabian and i had their album shipped out for me. …
