Heh.

 

First, I should check out this thread when I'm in front of my computer and can check the vids y'all've figured out how to imbed.

 

Second, I am not well-matched with you folk, musical-tastes-wise. My two second-most used Pandora stations are seeded by Dar Williams and Tori Amos, and Journey and CCR. Not too bad, and these don't raise many eyebrows with most. But...

 

...My most used station? Seeded by Rihanna, Katy Perry and Shakira. I am unashamed by my love of crappy girlpop, no matter how much perhaps I should be.

I've got another gaming session coming up, so I've been listening to my "adventuring mix." Instrumental tracks from all of my favorite computer/video games/movies/etc. I always seem to get a second wind painting when the Zelda theme comes up.

I am unashamedly a fan of female vocalists. It comes from being in a welded steel tube hundreds of feet underwater with 120+ other dudes. You betcha I want to hear a female voice singing to me vice some dude.

As I've mentioned before I don't listen to the radio. Because of this I generally find new music through interaction with others. So, what are you listening to right now?

 

My playlist top 10 right now:

 

Ray Lamontagne - Empty

Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir - Kids (MGMT cover)

Fun - Carry On

Amphibious Assault - Tears in Rain

Nobuo Uematsu - Final Fantasy VI Intro

Maurice Jarre - Building the Barn

Bootstraps - Fortyfive

Regina Spektor - Sailor Song

Guess Who - American Woman

Steve Earle - Transcendental Blues

Hm. Well normally I don't listen to anything while I work, but there are aspects of what I'm doing right now that are somewhat improved by a soundtrack.

 

So I've been listening to Murray Gold's classical compositions for "Doctor Who":

 

"This is Gallifrey" (always moves me to tears, so I have to be careful about this one while working)

 

The Eleventh Doctor's Theme

 

The Tenth Doctor's Theme

 

River Song's Theme

 

"All the Strange Strange Creatures" (love this one!)

 

"The Daleks Theme" (so ominous)

 

some other Dalek music

 

Yesterday was Richard Wagner's 200th birthday, so I did listen to some obligatory stürm und drang.

My iPod lives on shuffle, so there isn't really a top 10. Right now, it's playing Symphony X, but in 5 minutes it could be Sabaton, or Led Zeppelin, or Regina Spektor, or Bjork, or Ludacris, or Mozart.

      This is from the latest Randomness thread (I can’t seem to quote directly into a “Create New Topic” page):
       
       
      Notes are cribbed from Wikipedia and other places because I am not an expert on this music. I just enjoy it.
       
      I expect to add more songs later. Here’s one of my favorites first.
       
      Ríu Ríu Chíu
      (Spanish, 16th century)
       
       
      Notes (cribbed from online sources):
       
      This is a Spanish villancico (a type of song popular between the 15th and 18th centuries) attributed to Mateo Flecha the Elder (d. 1553). It is known from a single manuscript presently in Uppsala, published in 1556. The Monkees, of all people, did a cover of it (this is not that version).
       
      The phrase Ríu Ríu Chíu is said to be the cry of an attacking Kingfisher guarding the riverbank from wolves (Sorry, Glitterwolf and Chaoswolf ...).
       
      Lyrics:
       
      Riu, riu, chiu
      la guarda ribera /
      Dios guardó el lobo
      de nuestra cordera /
      Dios guardó el lobo
      de nuestra cordera.
       
      El lobo rabioso
      la quiso morder /
      Mas Dios Poderoso
      la supo defender /
      Quizo la hacer que
      no pudiese pecar /
      Ni aun original
      esta virgen no tuviera.
       
      Riu, riu, chiu...
       
      Este que es nascido
      es El Gran Monarca /
      Cristo Patriarca
      de carne vestido /
      Ha nos redimido
      con se hacer chiquito /
      Aunque era infinito
      finito se hiciera.
       
      Riu, riu, chiu ...
       
      Este viene a dar
      a los muertos vida /
      Y viene a reparar
      de todos la caida /
      Es la luz del dia
      aqueste Moçuelo /
      Este es el Cordero
      que San Juan dijera.
       
      Riu, riu, chiu ...
       
      Yo vi mil Garzones
      que andavan cantando /
      Por aqui volando
      haciendo mil sones /
      Diciendo a gascones
      Gloria sea en el Cielo /
      Y paz en el suelo
      pues Jesus nasciera.
       
      Riu, riu, chiu ...
       
      Pues que ya tenemos
      lo que deseamos /
      Todos juntos vamos
      presentes llevemos /
      Todos le daremos
      nuestra voluntad /
      Pues a se igualar
      con nosotros viniera.
       
      Riu, riu, chiu ...
       
       
      English translation:
       
      Riu, riu, chiu
      The river bank is protected
      God has kept the wolf
      From our ewe lamb
      God has kept the wolf
      From our ewe lamb
       
      The rabid wolf
      Wanted to bite her
      But Almighty God
      Knew how to defend her
      He willed to make her
      Unable to sin
      Even original sin
      This virgin did not have
       
      Riu, riu, chiu...
       
      The one who is born
      Is the Great Monarch
      Christ the Patriarch
      Clothed in flesh
      He has redeemed us
      By making himself small
      Though he was infinite
      He became finite
       
      Riu, riu, chiu...
       
      He comes to give
      Life to the dead
      He comes to repair
      The fall of all mankind
      This Child
      Is the light of day
      He is the Lamb
      Of whom St. John spoke
       
      Riu, riu, chiu...
       
      I saw a thousand Angels
      Who were singing
      Flying around
      Chanting in a thousand voices
      Saying to the shepherds
      Glory in Heaven
      And peace on earth
      For Jesus is born
       
      Riu, riu, chiu...
       
      Now we have
      What we desire
      Let us go together
      To present him gifts
      Let us all give him
      Our will
      For he came
      As our equal
       
      Riu, riu, chiu...

      Dear Friends, I wanted to invite you to join me for a new musical adventure, "Dawnstar: Eternity"! The music features cinematic and fantasy stylistics, and this album is the third in the Dawnstar series, which I have been conjuring inspired by astronomy and The Elder Scrolls during the past year. I hope that you may join me on this quest for musical exploration as this new album is inspired also by several art and science disciplines. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to make the production possible, and I hope that you may consider joining this new project and enjoy being a part of it. Thank you very much for supporting and inspiring me! Julia <3

      So some avid fans with too much time on their hands have covered the entire Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album as a retelling of Star Wars' A New Hope.  Each track is more ingenious than the next.  This surely wins the internet for 2017:
