This was always one of my favorite K&D tracks.

K&D are soooo good, their mixes are great for AGS coding sessions.

On Halloween I went to a PJ Harvey concert (the last show on her I Inside the Old Year Dying tour), and I haven't been able to get this song out of my head ever since. I'm not even sure I really like it. :-\

I find the album as a whole pretty whatever, but I love that song. Also the opening track and I Inside the Old I Dying are fantastic. Everything else, eh.

The whole album is apparently based on her epic poem Orlam (which I have not read), and to me it seems like, just as you might expect when they all draw on the same material, all the songs occupy the same space lyrically, tonally and musically (even as some are more successful than others). I really miss more variety, and can't help but feel that it's all a bit samey, twee, and dopey in that "prog-rock tune about Gandalf" way. (On the other hand I'm somewhat glad that she's moved on from the political material of her last two albums, which I thought never rose above the banal—though when she performed "The Words That Maketh Murder" last week it felt newly relevant.)

I do love Polly, though, and even if a whole album of this stuff is a bit much for me, I'm sure there are tracks I'll come to appreciate, just as Uh Huh Her (by far her weakest album) included gems like "The Desperate Kingdom of Love" and "The Darker Days of Me & Him."

Her best song from a none-fan. Generally speaking The modern beats and rap/asmr vocals usually don't do it for me, but this one is really good, i must say :-D

It's all because of @Mandle
I was wondering what song he used for his last game.
Turns out it was a tribute from Weird Al Yankovic to They Might Be Giants. And down the rabbit hole I fell.

Crazy Roboto Pop (I also find it hilarious that Dennis DeYoung sings "I am the modern man" as "I am the modren man" which is how I pronounced modern when I was growing up!):

WHAM

Discovered that an artist I'd listened to as a teenager has had their works remastered and put up on Spotify again a couple years ago, after being absent for a long, long time.

E Nomine was both my gateway to German music and to anime music videos back in the day!

Wrongthinker and anticitizen one. Utterly untrustworthy. Pending removal to memory hole.

Stéphane Picq, who did the soundtrack to the classic 1992 Dune adventure/strategy game by Cryo, recently recovered the music copyright and has released a remastered version of the Dune Spice Opera soundtrack album.

There are a couple of tracks of the remaster on YouTube, but they're not among my favorites, so I'll just post a link to this unofficial mix of the original game music (combining Adlib, Adlib Gold and Roland MT-32 versions), in particular "Worm Intro" (aka. "Sign of the Worm") that plays over the intro sequence:

There's also a French song from the 80s called Maria Magdalena but they seem distinct:

The "creature of the night" bit really reminds me of another pick I posted a while back in the thread:

Laura Branigan - "Self Control"

For something completely different, I was taken by surprise today to learn that Tom Lehrer, born 1928, is still alive (as far as the Internet is aware, anyway), and still seems like a great guy. He put all his songs in the public domain and relinquished the copyright in 2020/2022.

This one is hilarious for people learning Japanese, but it is also a great catchy pop song:

This song won the Eurovision Song Contest 2024:

These talented guys asks the audience if there are any requests, and one guy shouts "Super Mario".
So they play it. :-D

I'm listening to a reboot of my own song about our current online influencers, mainstream artists, producers, well pretty much anybody that is an a-hole :-D So if you feel like helping out with the algo's, and like 70's inspired music give it a like and perhaps a comment, i wouldn't mind.

 It sounds more '80s to me, AndreasBlack!  Enjoyble! 8-)


Now, I already choose my vibe for this summer:
