I was in a car taking me back home from work last night when 'Alone' by Heart came on the driver's MP3 player. Since then, I've been listening to it incessantly on loop while at work again! That, and the extended theme song to Neon Genesis Evangelion, which is very good music to pump oneself up when one probably should have more caffeine in his bloodstream! :D

twenty one pilots - Fake You Out

Watched a twenty one pilots concert on Youtube earlier and I can't get this song out of my head now. These guys make such infectious music.

Currently listening to I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift. Heard this song on my car's radio this morning, and it was stuck in my head throughout the entire day. It's such a beautiful song, haha.

Zedd - Clarity (feat. Foxes)

I've been having this epic song on overplay thanks to my own profile, and I'm suspecting it's why people don't want me to remove my current profile. Not to mention according to loads of people on Tumblr, Zedd sure is attractive!

Brain Damage/Eclipse - Pink Floyd

This song is what wraps up my favorite album of all time. It is truly stunning to think that this song isn't taken from an Aristotle quote, or is from the recent years of technology. So let's get down to it. The actual sound of the song (technically songs, but they flow into each other seamlessly) is amazing. It all sounds epic, just the way a finale should. It feels as if the whole album leads up to this point. Unfortunately, this aspect of the song means more to those who listen to the whole album. But, nonetheless you should still give it a listen. The progressive sound of the Guitar and the electric feel of the Synthesizer combine to create such a sound, that when mixed with the vocals, create a really climatic feel. As I said, the songs flow into each other. Honestly, If I hadn't previously known they were different songs, I would've thought they were the same. This part also represents the general concept behind the album. The "Brain Damage" part is about how you sometimes feel insane, caused by the combined stresses of life. But it also informs the listener that they are not alone, and everybody feels the same way. The moon is used in these songs to symbolize the hardships of life. Hence the lyric "We'll see you on the dark side of the moon." (remember that I said, this song provides the general idea behind the album) Eclipse refers to the ups of life and symbolizes them as the sun. The song says "Everything under the sun is in tune, and the sun is eclipsed by the moon" meaning that even with all of life's ups, no matter how hard we try, there is no escaping the downs. After the song pretty much ends, a voice says "There is no dark side of the moon, really. As a matter of fact, it's all dark", but his is more than likely thrown in as a joke since there literally is no dark side of Earth's moon. Just like the music aspect of it, Brain Damage/Eclipse's concept feels really epic. It is probably the closest a song has got to being a view of life in general. Okay, Now I'm done gushing all over these songs

Lady Gaga - You & I

The main problem with this song is the grammatically incorrect title.

Baba Yetu - Christopher Tin featuring the Soweto Gospel Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

I think it's the best song composed for a video game opening in existence. Definitely among the most well-executed.

This song literally blew me away. From somewhat calm to blasting my ears to death... <3

Soul'd Out - Magenta Magenta

I've had this song stuck in my head all day but I only know the chorus so the chorus has been bugging me constantly. Now I'm listening to the full song and I feel at peace.

Marksman (She Shou) by Magic Power.

The video clip makes me laugh, the first time I heard it, I was literally rofling, and then the second time, I thought it was actually a pretty good song.

The Legend of Zelda Orchestra - John Williams

The Legend of Zelda theme is one of the greatest songs to ever be featured in a video game. The orchestra version is, in my opinion, even better!

Kulgrinda - zeminnika kweitaakedi

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4nQvL9Rd3w&list=PL5BEC2711762D0742&index=1

Kulgrinda means a secret cobbled road under water through a marsh or a lake leading to the castle. Kulgrinda is also a path of initiation. Ritual folklore band Kulgrinda was founded in 1990, the time when Lithuania was undergoing rebirth. The entire revived movement of the Balts' belief can be hardly imagined without this group.

Parliament Funkadelic – P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)

"Good evening
Do not attempt to adjust your radio, there is nothing wrong
We have taken control as to bring you this special show
We will return it to you as soon as you are grooving

Welcome to station W-E-F-U-N-K, better known as We-Funk
Or deeper still, the Mothership Connection
Home of the extraterrestrial brothers
Dealers of funky music, P-Funk, uncut funk, the bomb"


BiS, this is as deep of funk as you may find, brother.

Also, to anyone who thinks Lady Gaga is SO original with her strange costumes, apparently you haven't seen George Clinton.

Also, to anyone who says Red Hot Chili Peppers is a funk band, they're actually Funk-Rock. P-Funk is true funk, man.

Televisor - Rock the Flock

Suddenly I feel like you took away the night,
you're still the one for me and I know that you just might,
be everything I like,
you're playing in my key,
you're everything I sing,
my perfect melody

Mean - Taylor Swift.

One of her best, undoubtedly. It's too bad that not many people listen to this as much as her other songs. ):
