Thanks for the lyrics Pietja!

We Love Like Vampires - Sparks The Rescue
7/10
Yeah, I find the song good and catchy, but for some reason... I find the vocals somewhat irritating.

Hmm... you like Muse Zaran? Well, here's one of my favourite songs by them:

Muse - Plug In Baby

I actually don't like the video, but I adore the song!

102 Re: RateTheSongAboveYou Game on Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:44 pm

You want Zaran to rate it, right?

Anyway, that's the only song by Muse I've ever liked. And loved the video, back in a day.

7/10 Muse is okay. I've grown out of there style really, but I cant deny that they're a solid band.

Hmm? Oh! No... sorry I meant anyone could rate it, but as you can see, Winds already did it. Yeah, yeah.

Fleet Foxes - Blue Ridge Mountains

8/10Mmm, dada de dada, lala, dada de dada, lala, badabum dade, lalala... hmm? Oh yes, eh... the song was so nice! Like, not of the greatest, but it was so well done and made me so calm and happy.

The Kinks - Lola

Glee! Such a cool song.

105 Re: RateTheSongAboveYou Game on Tue Feb 23, 2010 9:17 am

The Kinks - Lola aka. The Most Famous Song of the band called The Kinks Very Happy

Classic. What else there is to say? Do I like it? Yes, it's a good song, so as the band itself, but it's not my piece of candy. Easy to listen - in a good way.

7/10 from me.


I'm wondering what to give to ya, so...

Classic/Oldies...

Beach Boys - I Get Around (Live)

My dad loves them, I like them. I have their Greatest Hits CD in my car and I always put it on when I'm in a traffic jam and some jackass next to me is listening to rapcrap or poor quality techno. I put it as loud as my system can play it and when that douche looks at me I do a little sitting dance with a silly face. Very Happy

Neil Cicierega/Lemon Demon - Word Disassociation

Neil Cicierega/Lemon Demon - Word Disassociation

Orignal, nice concept but I found it somehow annoying.

So, in my subjective opinion -

6/10

because I honor originality and good ideas. But the effect of it was not so great.



And, from me, a... hm... melodic metal song of sorts. The band is called Cloudscape and as for now they've released three albums. I only know two of them, they're nice although not every song is a great one. Well, this one is. Melody & lyrics are what gets me every time.

Cloudscape - Demon Tears

Breaking Benjamin - Blow me away

View user profile

112 Re: RateTheSongAboveYou Game on Sun Mar 07, 2010 7:20 am

Breaking Benjamin - Blow Me Away

It was an okay song when I first heard it, but it was so over-used by video music makers (mostly by amateurs - "300" movie video, lots of AMV stuff) that I puke at seeing just the title. It's unoriginal and becomes boring after second listening. It doesn't have the power that it should have. Vocals are annoying and typical for a modern metal from USA. Yes, I'm not a fan of that kind of singing.

3/10

From new editions of Hokuto no Ken anime. Great instrumental.

Very enjoyable to listen to. Good, soft tenor vocals. Guitar is prominent, but not distracting. More harmonious than anything.

For the Music 4/10, way too repetitive for me, but kind of trance-inducing

Okay "one more"

Daft Punk - One More Time



BTW - This post seems to be full of Puns

Daft Punk - One More Time

DP (not Deep Purple... although... Very Happy) fan here.

"Discovery" given in form of a "Interstella 5555" movie is a great concept album, but one more time is not the best track on it. IMO the best on "Discovery" are "Voyager", "Superheroes" (good on a dancefloor) and "Verdis Quo". But this song is great one nevertheless, and a part of my teenage life. I had to admit I've met one nice girl while dancing to it on my friends home party Cool, so the rating could be higher because of the sentiment, but I'll save it Very Happy.

So - 8/10 from me.

And while we're at the golden times of electronic music on MTV, here's some stuff that I consider classic :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv6Ewqx3PMs - Mr. Oizo - Flat Beat

For the younger 'uns - Flat Eric, the yellow guy on the clip, was a sexual dream of many girls at the time. True story.

118 Re: RateTheSongAboveYou Game on Sun Mar 14, 2010 7:24 am

Well... the stuff sounds pretty foundational, and would no doubt be (and probably is) a great building block for a greater track, but IMHO, it got very repetitive very fast by itself. If it weren't for Flat Eric in the video, I'd have have hit the upper right X early.

5/10 from me.

And as long as we're doing oldies... here's a fave game track of mine:

The Sims: Makin' Magic - Buy Mode Theme 1

View user profile http://jimmydimples.deviantart.com

119 Re: RateTheSongAboveYou Game on Sun Mar 14, 2010 7:45 am

Mr. Oizo stuff is meant to be repetetive - it's that kind of music.

The Sims: Makin' Magic - Buy Mode Theme 1

While The Sims series make my skin crawl, I have to admit it has decent elevator music (like almost all Maxis games - f.ex. SimCity 3000 had some nice tunes). It creates nice background and this particular track has a nice french feeling to it. As a tune for a game - I say I like it. But it just doesn't stand out as an stand-alone track.

And I'll rate it as a stand-alone track, so 6/10 for it.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUnPDOR_VNY - Tempestt - Enemy In You.

A relatively quite young band from Brazil (many fine bands are coming from that country lately) wich, as for now, released only one album wich I've bothered to order on some german site because it's so damn good. Hard Rock, or AOR like some like to say with lot's of progressive touch to it. Personally - I love it.

120 Re: RateTheSongAboveYou Game on Tue Mar 16, 2010 6:56 pm

Positive message. Hard riffs. Emotional intenseness in instrument and voice that feels honest and doesn't give a wet slap about being called cheesy for it. Something in that verve I haven't heard coming out of the 1990 onward.

Kind of obnoxious al fine, though.

I give it a 9 out of 10.

And for something considerably less serious for St. Patrick's Day...

I hate Coldplay with passion. I have tons of reasons for it, that is why my rating for this song is




John Williams - Leia's News / Light Of The Force

The Light Of The Force especially.

9/10 for that song. It's excellent. One thing is, it's very slow. Great if you're in a mellow mood, but for people who prefer faster-paced songs, silence would be preferable.

Care to name some of the reasons you hate Coldplay?

When I Am King - Great Big Sea

Too many reasons to waste forum space for it. I think the poop above expresses all.

When I Am King - Great Big Sea

Hm. I can't say I liked it. First of all, quality of recording was bad IMO. Vocalist was kind of annoying and the rythmic section was bland.

I can't give more than 4/10.


Ok., I know I personally don't rate lyrics, but here's something that it's strenght lies in lyrics IMO. It's a polish song, a one from my youth, very melancholic to me and I guess my first "serious" girl. Translation is below in spoilers tab :

Robert Kasprzycki - Niebo Do Wynajęcia (Robert Kasprzycki[pr. Kas-pshy-tski] - Heaven For Rent)

Spoiler:
Na tablicy ogłoszeń, pod hasłem "lokale "
(on the bulletin board, under "apartment" ads)
Przeczytałem przedwczoraj ogłoszenie ciekawe
(I've read yesterday a curious one)
Na tablicy ogłoszeń fioletowym flamastrem
(on the bulletin board with a purple marker)
Ktoś nabazgrał słów kilka, dziwna była ich treść:
(someon scribbled few words, their content was strange)

ref. (chorus)

Niebo do wynajęcia (Heaven For Rental)
Niebo z widokiem na raj (Heaven with view on paradise)
Tam gdzie spokój jest święty (Where peace is saint)
No bo święci są pańscy (Because saints are of Lord)
Szklanką ciepłej herbaty (With warm glass of a tea)
Poczęstuje cię Pan (you'll be treated by God)

kon. ref. (chorus end)

Pomyślałem "to świetnie, takie niebo na ziemi
(I thought "that is fantastic, such a heaven on earth)
Grzechów nikt nie przelicza, nikt nie szpera w szufladzie"
(nobody's counting my sins, nobody rummages through my drawers")
Pomyślałem "to świetnie" i spojrzałem na adres
(I though "that is fantastic" and I checked out adress)
Lecz deszcz rozmył litery i już nie wiem gdzie jest...
(But rain washed out the letters and I don't know where it is...)

-chorus-

Gdy wróciłem do domu, gdzie się błękit z betonem
(When I walked back home, where azure and concrete)
Splata w Babel wysoki sięgający do chmur
(Splices in soaring Babel reaching to clouds)
Zaparzyłem herbatę, w swym pokoju nad światem
(I brewed some tea in my room above the world)
Myśląc: "nic nie straciłem pewnie tak jest i tam..."
(thinking : "I've lost nothing, I'm sure there's same as here...")

-chorus-
