The Music Listening thread

Recommended Posts

Weezer did a pretty good cover of Africa. I can't even tell the difference, but you don't need to change perfection.

 

 

This is what I find weird. If you cover / remake a song, wouldn't you add a personal note? Their cover song sounds exactly the same as the original... then why listen to it instead of the original?

The arrangement is the same, but the timbre and instrumentations are different. As far as covers go, I really like it.

Opeth's Damnation album always very much reminded me of Diablo.  While there is no exact 1 to 1 copy to Tristram on the album, I will post this:

Could there be a more perfect tune?

 

I accept your challenge:

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Heh, I saw that on my "related videos" on YouTube for some reason like last week, too, and figured what the heck, and listened to it for a few hours. It was...pleasant, for the most part.

 

 

People should really take care to upload higher quality videos - it's not too difficult, either. This one isn't too bad, but my FLACs certainly sound better than this.

Had a dream last night where this was played at a music festival. I basically just had an amphitheater playing classic songs in my sleep... wish that would happen every night.
