Post a random song you deeply love, & try someone else's.

So here is the idea, post random song that you never ever get sick of, & then try somone else's. The only rule is, if you are listening to someone's song that you've never heard before, listen to it all the way through, give the song a chance.

Maybe we can all find some new stuff.

I'll start with one of my favorite songs of the year. You don't have to post a video, I just couldn't find the song anywhere else.

Dark Mean - "Lullaby"

Familiar with the James song. I've always liked it.

Here's some classic GBV

Re: Post a random song you deeply love, & try someone else's.

I didn't really care for the Dark Mean. The James track is not bad and I really like the Guided by Voices track. I'm already a fan of BbV though.

New Order - Dreams Never End

It's cool, just hope you listened to the whole song to give it a fair chance.

This is from my favorite album of this year, heavy New Order influence, maybe you'll dig it. Video sucks, don't even watch it, just listen to the song.

The XX - "Crystalised"

Re: Post a random song you deeply love, & try someone else's.

Hmm...I liked "Crystalised" quite a bit. Man, I am so lame about keeping up with new music---I really need to explore more current bands.

Here's an 80's band that never quite hit it big, but I always loved this single:

Game Theory---"Erica's Word"

Re: Post a random song you deeply love, & try someone else's.

I never heard of that band but I thought it was pretty good actually. It's not the sound I was quite expecting for 1985. I'm going to look them up now- has a power pop kind of sound

here's a favorite of mine

Re: Post a random song you deeply love, & try someone else's.

Great thread. The OP is the only one that has really stood out to me so far. I'm excited about the link to download it for free!

There are probably better songs by this artist out there, but this is the one I discovered him by, and has always stuck as my favorite of his.

Micah P. Hinson - Patience

I love the original and didn't care for this cover but I thought the video was very cool.

I loved the track that came after "No Rain" on Blind Melon's debut:

Love Roxy Music, but I think Country Life if their best. Although 801 is the best Manzanera band.

Saw Shellac in Portland a while back....wish they played this song, but they didn't. But it was the best show i've EVER seen. And only 12 bucks.

Re: Post a random song you deeply love, & try someone else's.

I cheated...I watched all the videos

Songs/bands that that were new to me that I liked:

Dark Mean "Lullaby" (this one is really great)
We the People "In the Past"



Songs/bands I already knew of and liked:

New Order "Dreams Never End"
The xx "Crystalised"
Blind Melon "Deserted"
Garth Marenghi "I'm A One Track Lover"
Shellac "Spoke"



Songs/bands I already knew of but don't or didn't like:

Porcupine Tree "Trains"
Guided By Voices "The Official Ironmen Rally Song"
Mastodon "Quintessence"



The rest were new, but I didn't like them (well, I obviously know and love the original "This Must be the Place" but I didn't like that version).

Here's my first contribution (definitely not a joke by the way):
