Telltale Autumn Sale

Rate The Last Song(s) You Heard

edited October 2012 in General Chat
I don't know how far this topic'll go, but it could be interesting. I guess it depends how often you guys listen to music; I do it every day!

I'll start. You can post links too if you want. I mostly only ever listen to songs I like, so this list might end up being rather silly. :D


Under the Boardwalk - Bruce Willis and the Temptations - 11/11

Joy to the World - Three Dog Night - 11/11

La Bamba - Ritchie Valens - 11/11

Devil Woman - Bruce Willis - 9/11

Sinner's Prayer - Bruce Willis, BB King, and Billy Preston - 10/11

Everybody Jam! - Scatman John - 11/11

Snow Road - Yuka Tsujiyoko - 9/11

Friday - Rebecca Black - 0/11 Because it's the cool thing to say.

    Fair play to that! :)

    Currently listening to Fully Faltu from a new Bollywood film called F.A.L.T.U... I rate it a 7/10. While it's a grand catchy beat for now, I might go off it later... and also, Pitbull might asking for his beats back. XD

    If she wasn't so frigging indecisive about which seat to take it would be a much better song.

    I just can't figure out why she had to hurry to the bus stop to catch the bus but then rides in her friends car. And then she's already partying in her friends' car and trying to figure out which seat to take when she is already seated and the rest of the car is full. THERE ARE MAJOR CONTINUITY ERRORS HERE.

    Well, the 'album(s)' version of this thread didn't go very far. But I'm sure this one will remain close to the top, seeing as how people listen to single songs a lot more than they listen to albums (the impatient beings).

    Well, I guess I'll have to post the last couple of songs I listened to last night, which were:

    Iron Maiden - "Invaders" - 6.5/10
    This is quite frankly one of their worst songs (discounting their B-sides). The riff is bland, the chorus is ugly and sounds like it was thought up in about 30 seconds, and the only thing that saves it from being a five (out of ten) is the soloing in the latter half of the song. If I wanted to turn somebody off from Maiden, I'd show them this song.

    Iron Maiden - "Children of the Damned" - 9.5/10
    Unlike "Invaders", it sounds like some time and thought actually went into writing and constructing this song. The riff is memorable (unlike in "Invaders"), the chorus is actually pleasant to listen to (unlike in "Invaders"), and even the soloing from "Invaders" - one of the song's positive aspects - is outdone by the solos in this song. Overall, this song is one of the best tracks on what is otherwise a pretty mediocre album.

    Fire - Lupe Fiasco - 8/10 I'm a sucker for rock/ hip-hop crossovers :D

    Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri - 9/10 Not usually one for ballads, but I really like this!

    L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N - 6/10 Fun and catchy, but nothing special.

    Shadowland - The Cast of The Lion King 10/10 I can rarely resist showtunes, but this has to be my favourite from The Lion King :)

    Open Arms - Elbow - 7/10 Only heard this because of Comic Relief, but I quite like it. A tad too sentimental though

    Alestorm - Shipwrecked - A sample song from their upcoming album Back Through Time, I will give it 10/10.

    I'll second that. I've already downloaded the track (illegally, for now) and have listened to it about 6 times. For some reason I can't seem to get enough of it.

    Don't worry. I followed the link; I'm confused too.

    Well we in Germany are actually lucy. We get this message when we want to watch this clip (or get linked to it)
    Video not available in my country
    Some YouTube content partners choose to make their videos available only to certain countries. For instance, they may only have the licensing rights for a particular region. On occasion, YouTube does block specific content in order to comply with local laws in countries where YouTube has launched. For instance, certain Nazi imagery is unlawful in parts of Europe.

    This really has to be a really aweful song.



    Matt Mulholland - Friday (coverversion of the Rebecca Black song)
    Wow. This is seriously great! 10/10


    And another cover-version I actually really like.

    Commercial Breakup - Bizarre Love Triangle 10/10

    Wir Sind Helden - Bring Mich Nach Hause
    11/10 seriously this is one of the best german songs of 2010.

    Edit: I really like that remix of Come To Daddy. Has any of you seen the video for the unremixed version?

    I'd pick anything from X-Factor for that purpose, it's probably the most depressing album I own, and I own Automatic For the People.

    Also, for my money, Gangland's a worse song

    I actually liked 'X Factor'; I think it's a pretty good album that's unjustly ripped on. But I do think that a lot of the songs on there could have been a whole lot more if the guys had just spent a bit more time cultivating them. It's like, with each of the songs, they wrote some good material, but didn't bother to put in the time or effort to improve them or make them into something great.
    Also, for my money, Gangland's a worse song

    Yeah, that song's not great either. "Gangland"'s another of the uninspired, boring songs that occupy the majority of the 'Number of the Beast' album - undoubtedly their most overrated album, if not one of the most overrated albums in metal. However, "Gangland" doesn't quite get up my nose as much as "Invaders" does. The only true moment of brilliance on the album is "Hallowed...", and "Children..." on a good day. But overall, pretty much every other song on the album is quite mediocre.
    INVADDERRS, DOO-A-DO-DO-DOO!!

    ...thanks.

    This is very ture, when you watch Dickinson do a Blaze song like Sign of the Cross or The Clansman it's like listening to a whole other, far far better song

    Another WTF song:

    Recoil - Luscious Apparatus

    Anyway, real ratings time!

    Aphrodite's Child - End of the World. 8/10.
    FUN FACT - The keyboardist went on to score the music for Blade Runner.

    The Red Army Choir - My Army 10/10.
    I adore this song and I adore the Soviet Red Army Choir.

    Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows 9/10.

    F*ck You by Cee Lo Green Maybe it's for the project I was working on, or because the melody and lyrics are so catchy, either way, I dig this song a lot. 9/10

    Ha, this song was actually used for an anti-smoking ad here in Australia. A really graphic smoking ad, might I add. Yep, that's just how we roll down here in Oz.

    Anyway, the pronunciation was wrong, it's more: InnVAderrs. See the difference?

    No, the lyrics weren't exactly great on that track: rhyming a word with itself ('done' with 'done'), rhyming 'fire' with 'desire' (my most hated metal cliche), including the line "Rivers flow with blood", rhyming 'crying' with 'dying', and the one you mentioned. It's guilty of a lot of lyrical cliches and failures.

    The rest of the songs from the album have pretty decent lyrics, though, like those in "Coming Home".

    Iron Maiden - "Mother Russia" - 9.5/10
    This is easily one of the best tracks off of 'No Prayer for the Dying' - an album that I don't actually consider to be that bad. And, if I'm going to be completely honest, I think I get more listening pleasure out of it than I do from 'Number of the Beast'. I think this is one of the best 'NPftD' tracks for two reasons - a) Dickinson's voice is less scratchy/screechy on this occasion, and b) Maiden really have managed to create that (almost)neo-classical metal sound on this track, which is something that I noticed a lot of on the 'Dance of Death' album (which is one of their best albums, in my opinion).

    Stuart Chatwood - "Introducing the Prince" - 9/10
    This isn't the best or most exciting track on the 'Prince of Persia: Sands of Time' soundtrack, but it's still pretty darn good to listen to.

    Michael Land - "Jazzy Voodoo in the Swamp" - 10/10
    This piece of music is cooler than anything I've listened to tonight, and it's cooler than anything you've listened to tonight.

    Hagen Rether, "Vorzeigelinker" 9.5/10
    (Roughly translates "Exemplary left-winger")

    That is such an intelligent song from one of the best German cabaret artists. Very funny. Deeply depressing.

    Listening to Within Temptation's new album for the first time right now, and it's good so far. The symphonic sound is kind of shoved into the background, though, and that's disappointing. There's also a distinct lack of the softer songs that they do so well.

    Maybe i'm a prude, but this is a poor state of affairs. There's a few smells that fly around during coitus but I doubt any of them would make there way onto a Magic Tree air freshener in someones car.

    The whole chains and whips thing has to be the most tired and cliched example of sadomasichism going about, I was uttering phrases like that when I was a young warthog about to start secondary school, except thery were always in relation to someones mum of course.

    Don't even start me on what the song actually sounds like the lazy uninspired production is just bland city.

    Iron Maiden - "When the Wild Wind Blows" - 10/10
    And with this, I've finally concluded my chronological listening of Maidens entire catalogue. And on what better note to do so? This song is easily within my top 5 Maiden tracks, and one of my top 10 tracks of all time. This is probably one of the most profound things Steve Harris has ever written; the lyrics are great and deep, and the music at the beginning end of the track is hauntingly beautiful. I really love this track, and if 'The Final Frontier' were to be Maiden's last album, then this would be the perfect swansong.

    Nine Inch Nails - "Mr. Self Destruct" - 9/10
    Good stuff, good stuff. Not the best track on 'The Downward Spiral' (that honor goes to "Hurt"), but still pretty darn good. Great lyrics too.

    Alestorm - "Death Before the Mast" - 10/10
    I can't not love this stuff. I love pirates and love metal. So when the two are combined, along with some good songwriting, and a certain degree of intentional goofiness, it just results in an incredibly likeable form of music. This track here is one of my favourites from 'Captain Morgan's Revenge'.

    Dream Theater - "Peruvian Skies" - 10/10
    A somewhat uneventful first half sets up for a second half of amazing Deep-Purple-meets-Metallica riffage. This is one of the best tracks off of one of Dream Theater's worst albums.

    Christophe Heral - "Thoughtful Reflections" - 10/10
    Quite beautiful, really. If you don't feel anything when listening to this, I don't think you're fully human. I loved/love 'Beyond Good & Evil', and the soundtrack is simply brilliant, and compliments the atmosphere of the game perfectly. I encourage all appreciators of good music to go and download it (free and legally!).
