Thread: Expand My World

  1. #1
    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for new influences in music. I would like you to post up to 5 songs that you think are GREAT that maybe not everyone has heard before or have been lost in the past. I have songs on my computer from Frank Sinatra to DMX, Godsmack to Sade so I am open to most types of music except country and Tejano.

    I think most music genres are like beautiful women. It doesn't matter where they are from, you can still pick them out. So although genres may be unfamiliar to me, I can still appreciate the beauty in the music.

    I have 3 playlists:

    general- self explanatory
    chillin' -for drinking beer
    abs of steel- to motivate me to exercise, to instill me with energy (see chillin' for why I need to exercise)

    So post away!

    Currently I need more high energy songs (I'm not talking heavy metal, just songs as simple as Jump! by Van Halen that get your head a bobbin' and feet a tappin'.

    I will start by giving you my recommendations:

    Mack the Knife- Sinatra with Jimmy Buffet- general or abs of steel
    Party up- DMX- abs of steel
    I aint mad at cha- Tupac- chillin
    Mazzy Star- Fade into you- chillin
    Last Train to Trancentral- KLF- abs of steel

    You do not need to put your songs in a category. I will download recommendations to "the screening room" and transfer them as appropriate.

    Please post JUST 5 of your absolute favorites, thanks.

    PS: By post, I just mean list, I will search the kazaa-lite data base for the actual songs.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    Consequence Free - Great Big Sea

    Ultimate feel-good music.

    My mum swears by Queen's 'Breakthru' for jogging to. Might work with other kinds of exercise...

    Great songs, both of them are now in "abs of steel"

    I won't respond to all, but this is exactly what I wanted. Never had heard either of these 2 great songs.

    Moxy Fruvous - The Drinking Song
    Spirit of the West - Home for a Rest (it's too hard to pick a best song... so here's one good one)
    Barenaked Ladies - Off the Hook (same comment as above )
    Lorenna McKennit - The Highwayman
    Mozart - Requiem (It's over an hour long though. And it's Mozart, so I'm not sure how it'd fit with the rest of your songs. )

    Edited to add: Oh, hell. Barenaked Ladies - Tonight is the Night I Fell Asleep at the Wheel.

    I can't limit myself to five.
    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
