    Alice in Chains- "No Excuses"

    A calming influence that makes me feel a little better when I'm low.

    Lover by Peggy Lee. Considering when it came out, the rhythms are pretty wild.

    Final Boss theme - Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

    It took me a little while to find a video without a spoilerish image (though the suggestions videos contain some). Even if this track is a bit out of place for the game, it's just so epic! I didn't really have a favorite video game composer, but with Luminous Arc 2, Radiant Historia, Xenoblade, and now this game (this track is easily the best, but the rest of the music is pretty decent) perhaps I should consider it to be Yoko Shimmomura.

    Rap but I think fans of old cartoons might enjoy the references.

    New Order - Sub-Culture. Couple different versions of this, I like the one with the female backing vocals better.
    Jinkies, huh? Hard to work that into any kind of lyric. I'll give Ugly Duckling credit for it.

    Dude. I'm kinda amazed you're still down to give some of the stuff I post a shot. But since you're apparently awesome like that I'm going to do something I was contemplating months ago but decided against. I've been trying to identify a sample and it's been bugging me for almost a year now, and from the stuff you post your taste seems eclectic enough that you might be able to help. The best part is you don't even have to listen to the whole thing which I'm fairly positive you won't enjoy. Just the first 20 seconds or so, enough to catch the violins and the woman singing "love me" should do it. I've already ruled out Carly Simon and Linda Ronstadt, my two best guesses, by going through my parents music one afternoon if that helps at all. Also had them listen but like me they recognized but couldn't identify. If anyone else wants to take a listen to try and help as well I'd certainly appreciate it. This has been driving me crazy for way too long.

    I can hear where you would get that but I think McLachlan's career started a bit too late. It's definitely from a song I heard a bunch in my childhood and I would say it's from the mid 80's at the latest. Although instinct tells me late 70's is more likely. Thanks for taking a stab at it though, I'll figure it out eventually.

    And rewatching Breaking Bad gets us this.

    Hmm... Today I spent a lot of time using Qriocity (or Music Unlimited) while working, but the song that brought me back to my childhood (strangely enough) was "ANIMAL (**** Like A Beast)" by W.A.S.P. from their first eponymous album.

    I censored the parenthetical part, but I'm sure we all can figure out what the "****" stands for. It was one of the songs that the PMRC hearings in the 80s cited as being "obscene".

    I've been reading the rules of the forum, sorry if this broke the rules; please let me know if it did. It is a true story, however.

    "Een Geldersch Lied" by Heidevolkon

    Peter Steele approves.

    Sweet, Raza! I actually had a chance to meet Kenny, Johnny, and Peter (I guess Josh usually just went back to the tour bus after shows). I took a picture of Peter jokingly strangling my 5'7" friend. Kenny is the one who let us backstage; my friend got a pass from his friend who didn't use it (he had the pass because he is a Radio Show host and now his band Neldoreth has had a few tours, but he had to get up early so gave the pass to my friend.) We (the rest of us) were like, "how long is this going to take?

    My friend came out and we were like, "Oh, there he is... and Holy Crap Kenny Hickey is behind him." Kenny, beer in hand waves us over and said, "Yeah, come on in guys, I don't know why the security is always like this."

    Then I talked to Johnny for about 5 minutes. I mean, I mostly sat down and chilled with a beer, but I still can say I hang out with them for a couple of hours.

    It was their Halloween show, but I forget the year; it was after the final album came out though. Peter did a little speech before singing "Halloween in Heaven".

    But one song I heard today (or late last night) was "Uprising" by MUSE from a concert I recorded on the Palladia channel; and of course they played "Knights of Cydonia" which is also rockin'!

    Pretty cool story. Would've loved to see what Peter was like in person while he was alive. I also went to see them on their last tour, it was a gig in Columbus, Ohio. Right before they were supposed to go on, the speakers came alive and played that "Chicken song" (google it, if you don't know what it is) on repeat for like 5 minutes. Then it goes silent and everyone gets excited again after the laugh. About 10 minutes later, cue the "Chicken song" part 2. They did this for like 45 minutes to an hour before Type O finally came onstage. I thought it kinda funny but the rest of the crowd seemed mixed. Understandably as well, as technically they were an hour late.

    Oh, yeah! I remember hearing about that. I think that was a few days before the one I saw. Two of my friends were like, "I hope we don't get the Chicken Song for an hour and then have them not come on." I didn't know what they were talking about; you explained it more than I've heard it explained before. Oh, I met the Bassist and another member of Lordi (out of costume) that day; they were actually very very friendly. Hah, a few girls came up to me and one of my friends with smiles on their faces and they said, "Are you guys Lordi?" We lowered our heads and said, "Oh, no, sorry..." Hah!

    The funny thing is that I think the one guy was the singer (Mr. Lordi) and he looked like John Rzeznick from The Goo Goo Dolls, even with the same hairstyle. The bassist had a shaved head; they were both pretty short - not that that matters, it was just an observation.

    I had a chance to see Type O Negative twice. The first was back in 2000/2001. PUYA opened for them; I walked outside for a breather and I saw a bunch of people across the street buy a bus - I went over and the singer from PUYA was standing there; I still have my ticket stub that he signed.

    I casually met a few of the people I went to see; I never really met anyone rude. I met Doc and Dallas Coyle from God Forbid, I was in the alley outside of the Venue and they were having a smoke - very laid back. Anders from In Flames. Hah, not the members, but I met Matthew Barlow's parents at a show at the Trocadero (Chinatown Philly); I was sitting next to them and another concert-goer told me who they were. After the show I said to the father, "they did a good job, eh?" I guy just stared at me; glaring, "Do I know you?" with a Southern-ish accent. I know that Barlow is from Delaware, but his Dad sounded more south than that. A few more that I can't remember right now.

    I heard a local Rap Group that my friend is a part of; The one song (they're all pretty cool), but my favorite so far is "Firestorm" by Chris James & East Side Republic.

    And for a major release I requested from my Niece to hear (and see the video for) "Scar Tissue" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. I think John Frusciante left; that is a big loss to a great band.

    Which reminds me: RIP Adam Yauch.
