Yeah... um, post a song you like. It can be from any category. There are no limits to how many songs. There is only one rule: there must be a link to it. It can be from anywhere, though (MySpace, YouTube etc.). Here are some of mine:


Thunderstruck by AC/DC:

I kind of wish I listened to a more varied library of artists, I have a bunch of artists that I like a lot but I rarely try anything new.

Definitely one of my favorite songs is Wish You Were Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXdNnw99-Ic) by Pink Floyd, it is definitely my favorite song of theirs.

My two favorite artists are David Bowie and Elton John and it's hard to pick favorite songs of theirs. Ziggy Stardust (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndZodpknFBc) is definitely one of my favorites for Bowie, and one of my favorite Elton songs is Funeral for a Friend/Love lies Bleeding (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAhpIjazFN0).

Some other favorites of mine:

You Know My Name by Chris Cornell (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWaB4ISFnbg)
God Knows... by Aya Hirano (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSNDRgs4KCc)
Layla by Derek and the Dominoes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2sfelvHAlU) (performed by Clapton in clip)
One More Time by Daft Punk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgtBlnOX6VA)

Enjoy!

I'm not really one to listen to much music, but I do really enjoy classical music.

Among the music that I do listen to, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQVeaIHWWck&feature=related) is my favorite.

You Know My Name by Chris Cornell (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWaB4ISFnbg)


QFE. :D I love that song.

Right now, I've started to listen to Avenged Sevenfold quite a bit more than I have since seeing them live back in the spring. I like most of their songs, but my favourites would have to Afterlife (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIRNdveLnJI), Bat Country (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTqgKEErjOg), Beast and the Harlot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiF9HswNMSg), and Almost Easy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRs9z8UfQzY&feature=related).

Here are some others from other bands that I like as well.

Becoming the Bull by Atreyu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Fa74btBwVI). They were awesome live.
Straight Out Of Line by Godsmack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVnSS9dm1zg). Still one of my favourites. Haven't listened to it much recently though.
Indestructible by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWxBrI0g1kE). Can't wait to see them live. This has to be one of my favs from their newest album.
Re-Education (Through Labour) by Rise Against (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHv_1Jct9NA). Seeing them live too, next month.
Keine Lust by Rammstein (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_k-vPv-XEpg). Definitely has to be my favourite video of their's. Can't wait to hear their new album that should be coming out next summer.

California Uber Alles (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nW8ZGd0NXpo) by Dead Kennedys. A good ol' hardcore classic.

QFE. :D I love that song.What do you think of the Quantum of Solace theme, Another Way to Die? At first I didn't care for it, but it's kind of grown on me.

Indestructible by Disturbed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWxBrI0g1kE).
I like that song too. :D

Red Hot Chili Peppers--Dani California (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiC_qw4LMhM)

Puddle of Mudd--Blurry (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UDnSsDMwRA)

Demon Hunter - My Heartstrings Come Undone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTFBnpnyvgw) This is the only decent song that they have made, IMO

Into the fire - Thirteen Senses (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-4dWj4nfsU) Really Awesome song.

To Fly--Day of Fire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QByM5stcl6Q&feature=related)

U2-Beautiful Day (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCzDXrVx4_w)

Linkin Park--Numb (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7VvkZY3VVk&feature=related)

A few...

I don't think it's as bad as everybody says it is. Like when it came out, I listened to quite frequently and listened to it quite often until QoS came out, but I don't think I've listened to it since. :p But, I still think it's a good song. No comparison to You Know My Name, though.

Meh, my favourite songs list could stretch to large numbers, so I'll just tell you the one song I like above all else:

BANANAPHONE. (http://songza.com/z/jwxkrl)

My all-time musical hero is Johnny Cash. Obviously, I'm not going to link to every single song I like - there's over a hundred. Instead, the two biggest highlights of his career.

Ring of Fire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2iv_E-Fn9E&feature=related)

Hurt (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO9dbmJ_2zU&feature=related) - I know it's a cover of a NIN song, but it was the perfect end to his career.

And of course, i'm quite fond of Stephen Sondheim -

A Little Priest (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYGHHxJnDIw)(the musical version, with Angela Lansbury and George Hearn)

Pretty much anything by Depeche Mode, Roxette, Savage Garden, or Bush is good by me (Old Skool I know ;)). I've listened to a lot of 18V, and "The Kill" by 30 Seconds to mars the last year.

I positively *love* Video Game Music. I think it is some of the best composed music ever of the modern times.

Bloody Tears (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjazC45Qkww)
In its original CastleVania 2: Simon's Quest for the NES version, probably the most famous--though not the absolute first redition ever made of it, mind you.
Bloody Tears Piano (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MM_Q0nfaG0) Great for short duels and plays of sorts ...I actually choreographed a fencing duel act to this very video's track for my community college's Performing Arts League. Apparently they had a lot of good "talent" up there but the college was looking for some good old fashioned medieval or Shakespeare-esque Hamlet type of play. Lots of the old fashioned violence blood and gore with swashbuckling.

Even other bands in real life liked Bloody Tears so much that they have done songs with this basic melody. 2-pac, a rap band calling themselves something like "the jedi masterz" or something have one with this. Cradle of filth or someone did a rendition, and there is another anonymous but popular heavy metal track of it as well.

Other favorites:
Captain America (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R09IV7PCgb4) What doesn't wreak of awesomeness here?
Hidden Character MVC (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOQe3qTwGME) (my theme when I did a backyard wrestling gig as "Keelhaul Kevin")
Lumine Final (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhLyzUC9mPY&feature=PlayList&p=2A5D16B705AF2F40&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=6) Anyone familiar with the megaman franchise and on fairly good terms with it knows its music is a strong suit.

Away from VGM tracks:

2 Dumbasses we all know and love (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37VyS5sAzrs)
Hip To Be Square (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_byVtHrGEM) A childhood favorite
Cum on, Feel The Noize! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e322vTpTyOE) QR remake version (my first Air Band act in high school my junior year)
Cum on, Feel the Noize! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLsw668PVyY&feature=PlayList&p=60C57FB95A15B450&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=38) Slade Original from 1972
Crazy Train (tribute album) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hwq3nNHyPI) Abridged from the cd a bit. (my 2nd and last act for Air Band my senior year)

I've a whole lot more, but off the top of my head right now this is what I can come up with.

Yann Tiersen:

Eddie Vedder - Society

Pearl Jam - Man of the Hour

Jeff Buckley:

- Last Goodbye
- Lover, You Should've Come Over

Elliott Smith - Miss Misery

Folks, I'll be going through this thread probably tomorrow and removing links to songs that have lyrics or graphics that are against the obscenity/bad language rules, or have comments with inappropriate language. This is a PG-13 forum--any songs posted after this post that break the rules will be dealt with accordingly--this is the only warning you'll get, and I really don't want to give out infraction points, so keep it clean please. Thanks.

I like Nazareth--cool for people who like 70s rock.
KISS
The Metalocalypse cartoon

Soilwork: Rejection Role
VKZBFts4lPo
Note: @ ~1:24 he makes a hand gesture but it is intentionally blackened out area in that area for the purposes of remaining in the PG-13 zone for TV viewing.

Hotwire: Hands on you
(it was on ozzfest 2003 sampler)

I can't link to any of these ones or Jae will stick me with pro-am open tournament darts but these are for those black or death metal days you just feel like thrashing about:
Nothingface: Murder is Masturbation
Motograter
Cradle of filth--until the lead singer sort of sold out
Deicide
Cannibal Corpse
Slipknot--used to...not so sure anymore after the band has had problems
Vile Preaching

Mind you I don't actually listen to this for its lyrics or to worship the devil--those days are over and I'm done being a fool on purpose. Not to mention it ain't good when your landlord is *so* scared of you that he can't wait until you leave.

On extremely weird days I listen to ICP

And let us not forget the epic that is rockman (dual meanings pun intended)

MegaManX 1

Spark Mandrill
CYdSLaVu9p4
Storm Eagle
sayGb0MMS_k
Launch Octopus
vyAsfo3nSWU
Note: I actually tried pulling off the bass line once. I never got to be very good, though.
