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:
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.
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. But, I still think it's a good song. No comparison to You Know My Name, though.
I positively *love* Video Game Music. I think it is some of the best composed music ever of the modern times.
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 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 What doesn't wreak of awesomeness here? Hidden Character MVC (my theme when I did a backyard wrestling gig as "Keelhaul Kevin") Lumine Final Anyone familiar with the megaman franchise and on fairly good terms with it knows its music is a strong suit.
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.
From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
I like Nazareth--cool for people who like 70s rock.
The Metalocalypse cartoon
Soilwork: Rejection Role
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
Cradle of filth--until the lead singer sort of sold out
Slipknot--used to...not so sure anymore after the band has had problems
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)
Note: I actually tried pulling off the bass line once. I never got to be very good, though.
