    I tend to shuffle my entire iPhone playlist and just listen to stuff entirely at random.

    This year, thanks to iTunes gift cards I've collected several albums from both Maksim and David Garrett.
    • Maksim is this piano player who tends to create tracks with techno beats and orchestral accompaniment.
    • David Garrett arranges all sorts of famous music, both classical and modern, as symphonic rock with emphasis on violin and other string instruments.

    So after alot of hard listening, I've narrowed it down to two songs.

    These are definitively and without question Weezer's two best songs:

    Say It Ain't So
    Across The Sea

    Say It Ain't So: Okay so this is the one of the classics, everybody knows this one. And that's because it has a pleasing melody and is super digestible. But beyond initial appeal (which this song has a lot of), there is plenty to really love and appreciate about this song. First off, it's one of the only songs on the Blue Album which is just heart wrenchingly emotional. On top of that, I really like the guitar in this song. Rivers' vocals are the focal point of most of Weezer's music, and for this song it's no exception. However, I think that the guitar in this song comes very close to being the star. Now I don't think the guitar is impressive in it's technicality or anything, but just the way the guitar dictates the phase and mood of each section of the song is incredible. This song shifts from slow and somber to desperate and emotional and loud frequently, and these emotional changes are clearly articulated in the guitars progression long before any lyrics tip off the tone. The lyrics and vocals are still the stars of this song, as Rivers belts out absolutely impassioned cries and bars that make me personally think "who even thinks of that way to say that thing". Anyways, if you really give this song a listen, make sure to pay attention to the guitar and the moods that are being conveyed.
    Favourite Moment: The buildup to the second chorus

    Across the Sea: This one is a little less mainstream as it is from Pinkerton, an album that is often regarded as Weezer's best, but also an album that is less digestible and friendly to the first listen. This song details Rivers' struggles with never being able to meet a fan from Japan whom he got a letter from. Rivers falls in love with as a result of his isolation and depression at Harvard. This song is desperately emotional and longing (See the line "Why are you so far away from me? I need your help and your way across the sea"), and at the same time is full of energy. Instrumentally, I think that percussion is really worth listening to. I don't know what to say about this song, other than, as Rob says, it's an emotional trainwreck, just like the rest of the album.
    Favourite Moment: "As if I could live on words and dreams and a million screams Oh how I need a hand in mine, to feel"

    well written. what you wrote about the guitar in say it aint so is so true. my favourite part in the song is probably the "yeah, Yeah yeah, YEAH YEAH" after he says "the son is drowning in the flood".

    i also really like the line "i wonder how you touch yourself and curse myself for being across the sea" from across the sea, it's like.. he's projecting the way he feels (and probably acts) about the situation onto her for some reason. just so good.
    i also feel like "you see mama.. i'm a good little boy... it's all your fault, mama, it's all your fault!" is a contender for the absolute core of the albums soul.

    hearts real good i really like this song. I wish more real singers would pop up in the rock genera the bar has been lowered in the last few years. not to mumblecore rap levels or talk loud with musical accompaniment of country. but lowered since the days of yor.

    keep in mind im perfectly aware that there is tons of shit that we just dont remember but i mean at least we stopped paying attention, and paying money to singers who couldn't fucking sing. unlike now where we say there artistic.

    with that said here is some imogen heap



    not to say she cant sing but she does use auto-tune on top of that

    Why yes, I love video game music.

    Post by Cephalo the Pod on Fri 19 Aug 2016, 1:08 am

    Been playing Shin Megami Tensei IV lately. So I've been listening to its soundtrack a lot.



    It's hit or miss. The world map music and battle themes are lacklustre, but there's some good music found when exploring the cities. And generally speaking the "eventful" music (stuff in cutscenes, one-shot areas and end-game material) tends to be pretty good.

    Overall, kinda pales when compared to Personas 3&4.

    Man, there was once a time when Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne was my absolute favourite song.

    Rory dunc and I were just scowering the catacombs looking for funny shit when we came across Where's the Beats? and we were like wtf this was like the music general thread that was before its time and was shunned because no one was ready for a music general at the time I guess, so we revived and merged whatcha bumpin with it

    sounds a lot what i think the jogotom boss battle music would sound like,
    though without the growling sine wave and with some sick guitar. some spanish guitar maybe.

    If you think about it, all music is sine waves.
