Inspired by the "what do you hear while doing 3D" thread, I thought it could be interesting, if people post songs they like and of which they think they would probably give others an entry to a new genre.

I'll start with my two actual favorite songs:

Jose Gonzales - Crosses
-That's the guy who sung the song from the sony bravia ad.
Just his guitar and his voice.

Royksopp - What else is there
-There are different versions on the single, normal version is downtempo, the Jacques Lu Cont mix is upbeat, but both are good)
Electronic "pop" music, nothing groundbreaking, it just sounds very nice.

Now let's see what you got up your sleeves!
I hope to see some insider tips of fine music :)

dear mike

(another nice thread)

probably my fav.s "working hour ...tears for fears ..songs from the big chair"

Ralph Vaughan Williams' Symphony 5 (Lento) (same tune was in also his mighty Pilgrim Progress opera. If you didn't listen earlier go and get it .I guess Richard Hickox conducted a newer version, there must out from Chandos. I had old one. After crazy funky Italian Operas, Vaughan Williams' music and Bunyan's words come together for ultimate Opera. If you don't like it, I can send you money :) you can send me the CD:) A great British Opera.

Bruckner 8th symphony (all movements)+(beginning of 6th symphony is amazing also..and of course unfinished 9th's first movement..I still wonder how did he compose that..I mean how a person can get those tunes and connect them like a web. I lost my months on it. Just unearthly music.)

And Jean Sibelius' mind bending 2th symphony's "finale " movement. I CAN'T THINK any better ending for a symphony, his technic of merging and recalling the tunes, unmatched. I have listened almost everything in classical, i have never heard any better conclusion for a music piece.

Also Gustav holst's "hymn of Jesus" (amazing) + Planets

ALmost every song in The Cult's legendary master piece "Sonic Temple." Still in my car...

And also a bit harsh but "Sabbat's Dreamweaver" is an amazing lyrical feast ..music was so good at those days. I cant pick one song, because everysong is connected.

BTW when you say the songs are connected there are pretty nice songs from King Diamond as well:) Especially The EYe and Them.

And of course probably Depeche Mode's Home, Black's Comedy Album (whole songs) and when i am in love (usually i am in love) A-HA's summer moved on.

Did i say i like this thread:)

Probably you will be Surround-THX mike after this thread:)

The only way for me to presume to introduce you to something new, would be to introduce you to something I'm sure you've never heard before:

We'll start you off with a little number I've composed called Siren Song (http://www.lordsnarebottom.com/audio/SirenSong2-28.mp3)©W.T.Anderson Jr./Naked Hoof Music. Elad Fish plays drums, Ian Rushton plays piccolo, and I play the other instruments and do the vocals.

Next, I have a song called Beyond The Shore (http://www.lordsnarebottom.com/audio/BeyondTheShore-preview.mp3)©W.T.Anderson Jr./Naked Hoof Music. Again, Elad Fish plays drums and I play piano, bass and guitars and sing the vocals.

These are just two of the songs I'm working on for my new CD.

Cheers.

Last purchase on iTunes was Olivia Newton-John 'Physical'!

Went to an 80's night here in Leamington Spa (UK) and it sounded awesome played loud, had to buy it when I got back!

after you listened Sibelius 2nd please tell your reactions. :) It may require a bit re-listening..and from the second movement you really have to listen it without any distraction. There is a salt lake hmmm 200 km away from my place when i go overthere, i listen this. It is real-time XMEN3's Lake Scene effect within your brain...

I recommend Euguene Ormandy conducts Philadelphia Symphony. I have almost 10 versions ...His version is best. From EMI - Butterfly Set.

Hi Tyrot!
I listened to Sibellius 2nd yesterday and I it was really a fine symphony. For my pity I'm up to my ears in work, so I wasn't able to dedicate my focus to the compilation for a whole afternoon (what it deserves), but I will defintely do when I finish the current projects.
Right now I can only perceive it as background music, which works well, but that's not what it should be like ;)

Thanks for the great recommendations, Tyrot and all of you!

You guys will laugh, but I "discovered" a song I would call the "song of a decade".Its "Simple song of freedom" by Bobby Darin ("Beyond the sea, Splish Splash, Mack the Knife, Dream Lover.."), and it was an anti-war song back in the mid sixties.
Doesn't get out of my head at all...the cool thing is: the CD it is on is the soundtrack for "Beyond the sea", featuring Kevin Spacey as the main character Bobby Darin.
And I can tell You guys: Kevin Spacey is da MAN, he can swing like any of the stars of swing, he has got a great voice and great timing.I love swing.

It's impossible to have a favourite piece of music, the best you can do is say what you current favourite is, mine being Liszt's transendental etude No. 11, since I've been listening to said genius a lot recently.

I utterly despise the putrid guts of modern popular culture.
Both art and music reached the their zenith in the second half of the 19th century.

I totally agree, I have no favourite band, nevermind a song. My fairly recent favourites include:

An Arrow From The Sun by Therion
Consign to Oblivion by Epica

Both fall under metal category with touches of classical and opera.

Hmmm... Tiny Tim.

I tried to find the song in his discography and could not find anything linking him to it. I found the "artist" posted as SpongeBob SquarePants and the lyrics on a SBSP related site (http://members.outpost10f.com/~lindax/spongebob/spongebob%20lyrics/having%20a%20wonderful%20time.html). I'm thinkin' it is probably more likely a Tiny Tim sound-alike than Tiny Tim if it is indeed from SBSP.

I stand corrected...Tiny Tim it is.

I just checked out YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE4OSDjnrFo) and found it... The song is actually called "Living in the Sunlight, lovin' in the Moonlight"

Do audio books count? I get tired of fiddling with song playlist while modeling something. So I listen to audio books:

Robert Jordan's "The Wheel of Time" Series: 11 books at almost 8gigs.
Robert Ludlum's "Bourne" Series: 4 books.
Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" Series: 7 books.
George Orwell's "1984"
anything by P.K. Dick
Roger Zelazny's "Amber" Series: 8 books (?)
Larry Nivens "Ringworld" Series: 4 books.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Art of War: Sun Tzu
Dancing Wu Li Masters: Gary Zukav
Philip Pullmans "Dark Works" Series: 3 books (Nicely done with different actors, not just one person reading).
Lord of the Rings Series
Terry Goodkind's "The Sword of Truth" Series: 1 thru 9.
Terry Brooks "Shannara" Series: 1 thru 12.
Orsin Scott Card's "Enders Saga" Series: 1 thru 8.
Jack London's "Call of the Wild"
Robinson Cruso
Moby Dick
Tad Williams "Otherlands".
The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot

That's enough to fill up most laptop HD's just pick your favorite book up on CD or DVD. I recomend going to a record store and asking the staff there if you can listen to a portion of the CD before purchasing tho. Some audio books aren't that well read, but some are acted out. Or better yet, go the library and see if they have your favorite book on CD, can't beat the price of a library card.

I get more images in my head while listening to audio books than music.

One of my favorites though, and one nobody on here has probably heard before, is The Annoying Song by Man Bites God. Everyone should hear this song, roll on the floor laughing, and have it stuck in your head for a month, at least once in their lives. Here's a link:

You should pick up Hans Rott's (a student of Bruckner) symphony no.1. He wrote that and a few other pieces, was told he sucked, went insane and burnt all his other music and died. Mahler later called him the inventor of the new symphony. I ordered it from amazon a few weeks ago and am absolutely blown away!

Just found this song, pretty funny, especially if you contain some "nerdy" attributes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xEzGIuY7kw&eurl=

I could probably forgive child molestation as one of you attributes, but reading math books is going too far.

haha, i didn't know it would be that bad.
On the positive side I do not read actual school textbooks and/or do any math problems for "fun". There are some "easy to read" math books on various subjects such as origins of 0 or pi, things about prime numbers, chaos theory/fractals, some contain interesting insights and some read more like a history books. There are also books about various math based curiosities, puzzles etc which I find fun to read. I just do not hate math.

Btw, I did not see child molestation attribute mentioned in that video :) (and i do not possess it)

I Usually listen to movie scores, (Batman Begins, Narnia, The Day After Tomorow, The Mummy, etc.)

It helps my animations to be more cinimatic. :lwicon:

I only listen to Danny Elfman scores...Nothing can beat the first batman movie score, I still listen to it somewhat often.

That and Leonard Cohen's original version. Oh, yes. Oh, yes.

Movies like "Pump Up The Volume" probably contributed to my intellectual anarchism from an eeaarrrllllllyyyyy age... :D

Now, when I'm feeling royally teed off, I do rather like to listen to a heavily overwieght screamer.
Meatloaf - Life is a Lemon

I swear, I'm gonna have that played when I croak it just because it'll make everyone feel uncomfortable hehe...

Oh and "Thou Shalt Not" by Kiss (the Revenge Album).

If I wanna just chill, pretty much any Alan Parsons Project, except maybe side 2 of Tales of Mystery and Imagination BBrrrrr, 'The House Of Usher' always gives me the chills.

Yay...
You know, with stuff like this, I always feel like they're selling me the girl, not the music. Sure, I'm sold... I'll take the girl for a night... as long as she doesn't put on her music.

We just moved and I got my internet today. Cool how many ppl participate. This thread wasn't meant to get the one and only favorite song of all times from you, but to give others a starting point to dive into various and different genres other wise remaining untouched. And it pretty much works out, have seen some new songs I will have to get into.
Thanks to all of you and go on!

Just in case someone like asian music, take this:

[edit] just a little notice: I mixed up "actual" and "current", so the threadname should be "Your current favorite song"

Hmm, current favourite eh?
Well, not a 'now' song, but at the moment, the one realyl hitting a chord with me is Robbie Williams "Advertising Space"

StereoMike

but "your actual favorite song" is a cool challenge too :)
Makes you think a little bit over what you heard over the last years, compared to what you have heard over the last days...

There is a large national dance company here called Anadolu Ateşi "Anatolian Fire" in english, they have toured around the world and if you seen the eurovision song contest held in Turkey you would have seen them :thumbsup:

I really really enjoy listening to all of Tarons music and a few others like P.O.D.

I only listen to music when I am working on something that does not require much concentration. If I am really trying to concentrate then almost any kind of sound is destracting. I also prefer music without lyrics as words in songs also can be extra destracting. I guess my brain was only made to do one thing at a time.

I must have complete silence please. :D

That's actually pretty true about your brain. when you are trying to do something creative you use more of the right hemisphere. The Right doesn't like speach too much, that's a left hemi thing. Maybe that's why most song lyrics are really crappy/cliche, especially top 40.
My favs are also usually orchestral movie scores ( mostly Elfman, Kanno and Williams).
As for songs with lyrics right now it's a three way tie for me.
1.Skeksis by strapping young lad
2.the blister exists by slipknot
3.Down for life by Testament

For me there has always been a few songs that I always came back to:

Drinking and Driving by Black Flag (only Greg Ginn has ever mastered the crunchy guitar solo)
Don't call me white by NoFX
Transformer by Bad Brains (the only hard-corps punk rasta band worth a ****)
Things to do (or Bad Penny, or the Model) by Big Black

What can I say, i'm an old anarcho-crustie at heart.
