Most of the people I work with are black. I hear lots of R&B and Hip Hop all night long.

Fresh Prince's Summertime is my favorite so far.

This thread has made me embarrassed to be caucasian.

Too manly for you?

Lately, I am listening to a bit of Touhou remixes.
As some of you might know, Touhou is an anime video game series
and it generate an incredible amount of fan work.
My personal belief is that Touhou encourage people to use their creativity in one way of the other. ^^

Among my favorite remixers is the group/circle O-Life Japan.
For some reason, I just like them. ^^
Let me share some of their remixes :

Original : Lullaby of Deserted Hell
Remix : Lullaby of a Demonic Hell
Sounds like something you would here in Final Fantasy IX. ^^

Original : The Sealed-Away Youkai ~ Lost Place
Remix
Seriously, that remix is epic! X D
Reminds me of Shadow Raiders for some reason. X D
Maybe it's the drums.

Original : Corpse Voyage ~ Be of good cheer!
Remix

Original : U.N. Owen was her?
Remix
Flandre is sometime depicted as an adorable kid
and some other time as ax-crazy.
This remix show a bit of both. X D
Oh and just to make sure you don't believe was at first related to Ronald McDonald,
here is a video of the game while the music play. : P

Original : Native Faith
Piano goodness here. : P
Remix
Piano AND electric guitar goodness here. : P

And finally, Emotionnal Skyscrapper...
You know what? This one is a particular case for me.
In the last stage of Touhou UFO, the music helps set up the mood.
There is a build up to the boss battle
as the game more or less throw at you a ton of power ups.
See it for yourself.
Remix

Any fans of Soundtrack of Our Lives? They're one of the fewer newer bands I listen to where my interest is in music from the 1930s-70s. All their albums are among my favorites and listen to them all quite often.

Holy fuck there's Soft Cells Sex Dwarf among that list of obscurities. :thumbsup:
My favourite track by them is a Man Could Get Lost. Though that's not the proper version just a demo.

Currently listening to a Lo Records compilation with some great stuff from Ceephax Acid Crew and Red Snapper.
Germans (Journal).
.Chuyewb (Youtube)
it's not the official way and relies on luck\randomized placement of bears. USC

But of course!  Soft Cell are in my top 10 favorite bands of all time.

I'm just a synthesizer kinda man, got them knobs twistin' oscillators under my hand.

See, when I think of ooolllddddd music I love, stuff like this comes to mind:

I'm just from a different planet than you guys.

Seeing Numan live is an interesting thing. He started out playing some of his newer NIN-inspired stuff, and had no crowd interest. Included lots of gothdancing, which is always amusing. All through the show. Then his face twisted in disgust for a mere second, and they launched into Cars. The crowd was much more involved after that. You could tell he really hated playing it, though.

I've been a huge fan of Gary's work for decades.  I even have his autobiography personally autographed from him to myself, so you could say I'm passionate about his music.  You could even possibly say he's my favorite singular musician of all time.

That said, I feel I should clarify that his newer stuff may seem NIN inspired, but he started creating his own industrial pop sound before Trent's band blew up.  Gary was already experimenting with that type of music at least by Metal Rhythm's time.  If you listen to that album, you'll notice at times it sounds like Pretty Hate Machine, except PHM came out a year later.  Gary really got deep into industrial around the time Sacrifice came out.  Well, Sacrifice came out in 1994, the same year as The Downward Spiral.  Of course it was Closer from TDS that blew up NIN for the masses, so obviously Gary was already into that sound before that occurred as evidenced by Sacrifice being released the same year.

Anyway, Numan has been on this industrial-darkwave kick for quite a long time.  I mean, there's Exile in 1997 now on to Dead Son Rising in 2011.  But I'll be honest, I'm tired of it.  I mean, Gary used to do the Bowie thing and mix up his sound and persona with every album.*  But ever since Pure (admittedly a good album) sold well (relatively), Gary's been on that kick like a tunnel visioned train.  I blame some of it on Ade Fenton, who's been his writing partner for a long time now.  I think Ade is a super cool guy, don't get me wrong, but I wish he'd separate from Gary for a while... so that Numan would or could do something entirely different again.  I feel like Ade is an enabler for this industrial-darkwave-rock sound Gary's been stuck on for so long.

Anyway, I know you didn't want to know all of that, but this is a subject of GREAT interest for me.  I used to write industrial darkwave music myself, I was deeply involved with that scene.  Hell I sold Trent Reznor some of my music software (which he personally asked me to keep developing when I retired from it).  But after the release of my last album, I was just done.  I didn't sell it, I didn't promote, I didn't tour it, I just said the hell with it all. Done with industrial-darkwave, done with music in general.  Music f*cking sucks these days, the industry is a pile of ass. [/rant]

*My all time favorite Numan albums actually start with Dance in 1981, up into Machine and Soul in 1992.   The albums in those years were considered his worse critically, but I think they're all awesome and highly innovative and creative.

I know, it's just easier to encapsulate in "-inspired" than write "-inspired in the sense of monetary gain and profitability."

I've actually got a bunch of his CDs, though I skipped getting physical copies of any of the "Ohgodohgod, I'm out of money, uhm, BEST OF!" cds.

My favourite CDs are probably Replicas, Exile and Pure, though. Especially the Extended Exile. Sue me, I'm more into industrial than post-punk. He honestly produces so much that I haven't even had a chance to really give things like I, Assassin a good listening.

I don't regret going to see him when he was here the time before last, though I missed him the second time to go see Alestorm, so results may vary.

Most of those "best of" (if not all of them even) were not sanctioned or compiled by Numan himself.  Rather they were put together by labels he left behind when he became self published.  Anyway, good to know there's another Numan fan on this board.   :thumbsup:

It hasn't been updated in nearly two years! Hooray. Mostly because I couldn't find plugins for foobar and because most of my listening was done on portable devices.

Here's another one. :D But I haven't really listened to his older stuff; my favorite albums are Pure, Jagged and Exile.

he album is a true masterpiece in my opinion and I can never get enough of it.
I'm a HUGE Marillion fan too. :D Misplaced Childhood is my 3rd favorite album by them, after Marbles and Brave.

Mostly because I couldn't find plugins for foobar

Here's my Last.fm: http://www.last.fm/user/mz_

So... I've been listening to crappy J-Pop by 15-year-old girls or something:



"100% pour femme", yeah. I was looking for Japanese music to practice the language and got addicted to this Idol crap. :(

I had the plugin, but it went through a phase of not being updated, and I stopped paying attention. Got sick of foobar complaining about it being an outdated plugin and such.

My favorite Japanese musician has to be this wonderful man:

He is ingeniously creative and talented.  Also a very nice guy to boot.

I've finished the first four Led Zeppelin albums, and I've moved on to Houses of the Holy.

What, is there other music out there?

Working at 10 pm, so no booze this time.
