I liked it much. Some parts of this song were quite sad, some sounded like full of hope. It reminded me one song I've heard at some funeral, so it brought me some memories. 8/10

This sounded a whole lot like a lullaby, from the subdued and somewhat repetitive guitar line to the guy's really soft vocals. It actually reminds me of a much softer Norwegian Wood; it even has a really similar subject!

Here's a song that came out pretty recently:

Gone already. Random Access Memories videos don't last long! I'm guessing it was Touch? I can't deny I enjoy that track (especially the main hook), but I prefer the high-concept weirdness of Giorgio by Moroder or the straightforward disco of Get Lucky to this, which I regard as falling in between those two approaches.

Edit: In retrospect, I didn't give those great vocals enough credit in my review.

For a comedy music video about a meme, that song was pretty funky-fresh! And it's always nice to see more of Shmorky's work.

Going back to the Genesis well for this one. It's one of my favorite tunes by them!

Although that was one of the songs by Genesis that I listened to the least, I still quite like it.

As for my song, a rather upbeat chiptune song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJ7wpjTXnv0

Pretty great stuff, as is everything that makes it onto Ubiktune. I've been meaning to listen to Protodome's Blue trilogy in full for ages, though I had heard this track before. The melody reminds me of the Super Mario World theme.

I'd be interested to hear what peepz think of the new Pet Shop Boys single.

Well, it's not even remotely new now, ( :P2) but I still think it's pretty good. It reminds me of Patrick Cowley's Menergy, mostly because of the refrain "Electric energy". Music video gave me a headache though.

How do you guys like this song?

This is one of the most 80's songs I've ever heard, not saying that's bad, but seriously xD.

I do like though. Hooray for music I like!


This next song is probably one of the most mainstream songs I like but it's really that good, at least as far as my taste in music goes.

douchebag newpunk posers yuck

if you're gonna be emo do it right don't abide to crap by big label pop wankers.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiqiMPejJ9o

Exactly the type of response I was expecting, sadly. There's this thing called not everyone has the same taste in music. Like, song you just sent me... I listened to it and it's absolute crap to my ears. Also, I know Green Day is really fucking mainstream but why should the fact that it's mainstream stop me from listening to it?  




I'm not going to post a video here, I'm just going to let someone else continue the game.



Edit: I'm not gonna be "emo". Now you're just stereotyping. Oh well.

Errm, well, that escalated quickly. Let's get this thread back on track. (Hopefully this isn't a controversial song for some reason.)

I'm outraged that you'd post this song. You're obviously only doing so because of that viral Game of Thrones video. Frankly, I'm disgusted by your trivialization of Tyrion's plight, Healy. Why do you hate Tyrion so much, Healy? Why do you hate me so much, Healy?

Pretty good song, though. I'll follow it up with some eroge-style chiptune.

Sounds very nice, and I've been considering to play that game too. So, yeah.

Here's yet another track from a video game. Hotline Miami, specifically.

Pretty rockin' track. I could definitely see it featured on an episode of Regular Show, which means it did its job, I think?

Now for something a little more laid-back.

There's only a few people left playing this forum game... Oh well.

About the song you sent me, I quite enjoyed it. The lyrics were rather abstract and the music quite light, and I quite liked the singing. So, yeah, very nice.

Here's my choice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6psOf1B79w

I goddamn adore the album that song came from.
