This is an awesome track to walk to. Shame it's so short. Video doesn't show the name, and it's pasted over an MK trailer. It's 'Total Annihilation' by Cliff Lin
I also proper proper proper proper love this track
I just heard some sad news: Rock and Roll artist and songwriter, member of the Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, died today at the age of 71. While the Velvet Underground was not commercially successful, it was still considered one of the most influential bands of the late 1960s. Regarding the influence of the band, one famous legend said that the Velvet Underground's first album only sold a few thousand copies, but everyone who bought one formed a band.
Anyway, on to the music. I'll try not to repeat ones that I've previously linked.
The performer in the back right corner (relative to the camera) is just so utterly into it, it's awesome. You can't help but grin along with her. (And the guy nearest the camera totally looks like Matt Smith)
Figured you guys would like these:
I've been listening to a lot of Velvet Underground and Lou Reed recently, and that pre-punk/punk/rock sound led me into listening to Patti Smith again. Her performances are just so rich in drama and poetry that they just force you to sit and listen. This is not music that I can just play in the background while doing other things, because it demands attention.
BTW, I think that "Land" (aka "Horses") has to be heard by anyone interested in Rock or punk or Rock and Roll poetry. When I first heard it way back when, there was nothing else even remotely like it. The closest, I suppose was Jim Morrison's drunken rambling during "The End" ("The killer awoke before dawn..."), though that's really not even in the same class as this.
I had to include one more because it's so awesome (beware that it's nsfw, so I'm including it as a spoiler):
This is all stock footage (like those stock images you get).
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it:
And if you prefer the original version:
is rather good
I put this on repeat from time to time when I remember to, stays like that for days on end
Argh, it's one of those put-it-in-twice song uploads. But yeah, it's an excellent song. I just wish it was longer, and the longer version (which is sung by someone else, not the dwarf cast) is pretty crappy.
Yeah, it's kind of weird
There used to be a different version which didn't have the double, but I can't find it anymore - I'm guessing it got deleted
It won't let me embed this as it's SoundCloud, so have a link to it. It's a track from Coin Crypt and it's called "Pharaohcious" and it's like THE best piece.
Relevant in more than one way, now
Another song sounding way too DoD-ish;
