View Full Version : I heard this one song...
04-12-02, 01:28 PM
I've got a new idea for a cool thread. Each person should post ONE song that they've been listening to recently that's just incredible. It can be funny, intense, moving or whatever -as long as there's something special about it. Then you can go and download the music from Kazaa or Winmx (if you don't have an MP3 sharing program, you need to go to Download.Com and get one right now.) It'll be a cool way to broaden horizons, get to know each other better, and maybe develop inside jokes (we have soooo many song in-jokes on our team).
Just an idea...I'll go first.
Morrissey - Suedehead

Download Common Riders "Classics of Love" it is my favorite song... I used to make everyone in my car listen to it before I would go debate.
04-12-02, 04:04 PM
I'm going to embody the stereotype of the girl at the liberal/hippie school and say Ani DiFranco. Almost anything by her is good, especially "Fuel" and "Little Plastic Castles"
04-12-02, 09:32 PM
Fuel is a frickin' great song! I like that whole album.
Its corny, but one of my favorite songs right now is a country song called "Austin" about answering machines. It's not that hard, but it's really good.
04-13-02, 01:44 AM
Austin is a great song but the rest of the Blake Shelton album blows with the exception of his new song...
04-23-02, 02:16 PM
Never heard of this artist before but "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton is hitting home right now because that is almost exactly how far from home I am.
Also, our dorms are getting mad and blocking most music download systems... audiogalaxy I hear still works but not for Macs. Does anyone known of any free systems that I could use?
04-23-02, 03:15 PM
My tastes tend to be dated and/or mild for most of you, but here are a couple that I always used for warmup, etc:
Black Ballon -- Goo Goo Dolls
Time to Go -- Black 47 (militant Irish rap -- gotta love it)
04-23-02, 03:17 PM
did anyone download that Common Rider song I mentioned... it is a great song
04-23-02, 03:18 PM
I like black balloon jason, you're not THAT old ;)
When I get all pensive or sentimental, I like "Never is a Promise" by Fiona Apple.
I also love aerosmith for getting psyched up for stuff.
04-23-02, 03:33 PM
I've been listening to Al Green Let's Stay Together a lot lately. I'm in the motown groove.
04-23-02, 03:38 PM
im diggin yellowcards rock star land
just one song? but i like so many....
as of late, i've been on this big grunge kick. nostalgia and all that.
since most of you have (should have!) heard this one, i'll also contribute a more obscure track along the same vain (albeit trip-hop/electronic grunge)
Track: Plastic Stress
and Amy: good picks on the Ani, but i've always been more partial to superhero.
a cookie to anyone that correctly places the following lyrics:
"I don't know whether i was the boxer or the bag."
04-23-02, 03:59 PM
by Pearl Jam
And do you have an MP3 of superhero tom?
yay! free cookie for you!
...perhaps i should make it harder next time.
as for superhero, i *used* to, i still might on a disc somewhere. you want a copy? i could always rip it and send it up your way.
04-23-02, 04:25 PM
that'd be cool, I don't have nearly as much ani as i'd like. . . .this is what i have if you want it.
- Fire Door
- If He Tries Anything
- In or Out.mp3
- letting the telephone ring.mp3
- Little Plastic Castle.mp3
- Not a Pretty Girl
- Out of Range.mp3
- Two Little Girls
- Untouchable Face
- Wishin' And Hopin'
- 32 Flavors
-pick yer nose
you've got some kickass music in there.
in particular, i couldn't help but notice that you've got the djkicks session by kruder and dorfmeister. if you dig this (and i assume you do as you've got the whole album, iirc), you'd do well to pick up everything off of The K&D Sessions, by none other than Kruder and Dorfmeister. It was this album that elevated downtempo to a new level, that led to explosion of downtempo that we see today.
yes, the trip hop diva's of days past (portishead, tricky, massive attack) did alot for downtempo as well, but this was the album. a must have, in my opinion.
lemme rip that ani track for ya, and i'll send it your way. in return, just promise to give KD a listen for me. if you really dig it, lemme know; i revel in this genre and its expansion.

"Mr. Oysterhead" by Oysterhead is a trippy little song.
This band is so tight. It's a supergroup, like Cream. They've got three guys: Trey Anastasio, guitarist from Phish; Les Claypool from Primus, probably the best bassist on the planet these days; and Stewart Copeland, the drummer from the Police (best drummer of his generation).
04-23-02, 07:15 PM
Justin... I really enjoy that Commonrider album. Have you listened to any of Mike Ness' "solo" stuff? He does a great Dylan cover called "(don't) Think twice". Ness is the lead singer of Social Distortion but his solo stuff is Rockabilly.
Jason, I was being sarcastic about the NPTE stuff. Live life and be happy. I wake-up to that GOO Goo Dolls album each morning. Dum.... Dum, dum dum dum... I can here the first notes of the first song now. They really get me out of bed.
Amy, Do your thesis and stop downloading that Satanic Ani music. with love, coach.
Listen to anything from Bob Dylan, they all sound the same. Tub thumping by Chambawumba is a great kick your ass song to get you going in the morning. It is not a good song though.
04-23-02, 07:39 PM
a tune that i have been jamming alot over the last month is master p ooweeee. its an infectious track.
i have been playing the system of a down cd alot and i am addicted to the exicutioners with lp...great track.
on the obscure side blood is pumping by voodoo and serrano is really good and of course the soundtrack to gladiator still kicks ass.
peace and musical joy to all,
04-23-02, 08:49 PM
Phil, I love social d and I love mike ness. The lead singer of Common Rider was the lead singer of Operation Ivy... they also rocked.
04-23-02, 09:03 PM
does anyone have any downloads sites for Macs?
04-23-02, 10:06 PM
What's a Mac?
04-24-02, 03:50 AM
Macintosh Computer, Apple.... I have a titanium powerbook g4 if that helps at all...

MP3=MP3 -- it doesn't matter whether you are playing it on a Mac or a PC.
right, but *some* (albeit not many at all) file exchange programs are not mac compatable as macs don't use a Windows OS.
my suggestion: audiogalaxy (http://www.audiogalaxy.com).
i believe their software is universal (albeit, i'm not positive).
i highly recommend not using morpheus or kazaa as they'll throw spyware on your comp (i've read up on some nasty nasty shit that these companies'll put on your harddrive. cheeky bastards...).
for the time being, audiogalaxy is relatively harmless.
....for the time being.
04-24-02, 09:54 AM
audiogalaxy come loaded with tons of spyware... it is all integrated into the program and if you try to remove it manually, AG will stop working. I suggest everyone download a program called adaware. It will remove all of the spyware from your computer.
04-24-02, 11:32 AM
I'm gonna go get that adware program right now. Justin, you're a lifesaver.

I am a big fan of Ben Harper with his folk/rock style. He is liked by many circles and types of people.
In the mold of Ben is Jack Johnson. Not the first Black man to win the boxing title, but the pro surfer turned musician. His stuff is good and he is gaining popularity outside of California(was a student at UCSB). One of my debaters (Micah, that drunk, loud guy) turned me on to him.
04-24-02, 12:42 PM
Ben Harper is pimp too... he and Pearl Jam play together a lot.

Amy, if you like Ani definitly get "falling is like this" it;s an excelent song.
Right now I've got "Chemical workers song" by Great big sea and "Scarborough fair" by Queensryche. Both great songs great big Sea's cover of "end of the world" is also fantastic.
<a href="http://"http://www.newsbytes.com/news/02/176075.html">how is this even legal?</a>
didn't realize audiogalaxy had sneaky spyware programs (i knew about bonzi buddy, but you get the option to install that fucking grape ape).
any non-adware software out there for file exchange?
needless to say, this is a really sticky issue concerning privacy.
My cousin is big into Jack Johnson. He gave me his CD for X-mas and I don't think I ever listened to it. I will probably have to dig it out.
If you are interested in jambands (i.e Phish, Dead, SCI), bluegrass, or jazz you might want to check out my list. I trade live music by those artists who allow their performances to be recorded. (Plus a few who don't.)

I'm on Audiogalaxy as darkcloud4579. I've got an extremely vast collection of music, that's not all on this PC.
Fountains of Wayne -- Sink to the Bottom

04-25-02, 09:16 AM
I am listening to Phish, always listening to Phish
04-25-02, 06:21 PM
hm maybe I should open up my MP3 database as a upload and download FTP site available only to Net Benefits people. Anyone interested?
04-26-02, 09:26 AM
That's a bitchin' idea! Totally illegal, of course, but I'm all for it.
