    now that we have a decently active forum (i think?) we can start making some of these threads. lets use this thread to recommend our favorite music to others on this website. however try not to recommend very famous songs that all of us would probably have heard! try to recommend some of the 'wicked' (for lack of a better word) songs that you listen to :)

    i'll go first..this song is by The Magnetic Fields..its a combination of folk and pop music which blends very well in my opinion. just 3 minutes long so dont hesitate to listen!

    The Magnetic Fields - You must be out of your mind - YouTube

    let me know how you liked it, and post a new recommendation yourself :]

    It's not new for me but I really like the little that I've heard of Magnetic Fields. All of their lyrics seem to be written in a very humourous vein and the contrasting music makes it nicer, I think.

    ALVIN LEE - BLUEST BLUES - YouTube

    I present to you Mr. Alvin Lee playing with a band called Ten Years After. He can swing my mood in a heartbeat. I believe Alvin Lee isn't rated highly enough as a guitarist.

    great inputs guys, props to bjr for alvin lee and rikkyrich for jethro tull (gotta love them). il check out the nate king cole song as razor's rec

    for now i'll recommend something vicious (666)

    i challenge someone to sit through this and appreciate it

    Drudkh - Sunwheel - YouTube ..it's atmospheric black metal but don't be put off by the dissonance and the harshness. but instead look through it to find the simpler beautiful melodies textured underneath. (listen on headphones or stereo speakers for best results)

    hope i don't get killed for this ! :p:

    I'd never include anything of Jethro Tull because it's probably already famous. I love the song though.

    I love the song but I really prefer the cover done by Astrud Gilberto. Not only does her voice give me funnies in the tummy, she also shares my birthday!

    Astrud Gilberto - Fly Me To The Moon.wmv - YouTube

    The only thing I don't like about the song is the tone of the guitar...I suppose it is rather delibrately chosen though.

    Do you listen to Skrillex? I started sometime ago and I have to say I find it brilliant.

    SKRILLEX - Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites - YouTube

    @bjr
    i really like the way you look at music even though your generation sucks with this kinda stuff :p: surprised you liked drudkh :grin: ! yeah i guess the guitar tone was chosen deliberatly, but i thought the vocals would xxxx you off more

    and i really liked Gilberto's version of fly to the moon. il buy you a beer for that one


    this is my next rec, a song that's very close to my heart: Neurosis - Burn - YouTube

    the lyrics, the atmosphere, and the overall emotion appeal very much to me. not many people i know appreciate such stuff so i'd like to hear what the general consensus here is :grin:

    and alpha thinks he's way too cool for us so he won't share any of his secret music. (666)

    also, skrillex kicks ass. his latest release was a huge letdown though
