Title: Ao1's Internal iPod
Post by: Army of One on April 19, 2019, 03:14:57 AM
Seeing as I've not much to blog about (I'm a very boring person in real life), I figure I'd go with the most interesting part of me, outside of the porn I write: my music choices. More specifically, what pops into my head and plays on repeat.

At the moment, just to start off, it is this:

Hallways by Something for Kate


6/6/2020 Edit: This thread now has a YouTube playlist, since it has gotten so long and I know some of you would like to hear the entire collection at once. It can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLknvSrfenO3E8Y8HysKE_QumcDZCNqdMq

In all my musical travels to Australia via radio.garden I've never hear of the band or the song. Thank you for the introduction will definitely check out more by them and introduce them to others up here!

Okay, so, in struggling to get to sleep last night, my brain (and, of course, the iPod housed within it) decided to play Monty Python's The Lumberjack Song. On repeat.

Enjoy.

Okay, so, I was tossing up a little as to which clip of the two below I was going to bring to the fore. Then I thought, "Why not both?" [cue mariachi band playing "La Bamba"] So, here they are, for your aural pleasure.

Firstly: I found out that this trio performed at Coachella this year. So I feel bad for not being able to go see them. (But at the same time, one Australian band, Coachella? Seriously!? Two or three would've been better!) So below is my consolation, the first song of theirs I listened to.

Perfume - 1mm

The second is my favourite song from this band, mostly because it's a very different sound from the rest of the album. Perfect road trip music for the girls.

Skulker - Strawberry Deluxe
Title: Re: Ao1's Internal iPod
Post by: Army of One on April 22, 2019, 07:54:06 AM
Okay, I'm going to plonk this here now, before my brain forgets, because it's a song I've been searching for for a long time (like twenty years). It's one of the songs that can be heard on the Triple J dead broadcast loop (no, I don't know what that thing's called; all I know is it stops the radio broadcast from having dead air when it loses the connection to the broadcast point); it's the third song in on the loop. And now I have it!

Christine Anu and Paul Kelly - Last Train

I really liked that Skulker Strawberry Deluxe song. Has sort of an old '90s vibe to it.

Understandable. It came out in 2000, so that vibe is certainly still noticeable.

I'm glad to be of service in expanding your musical knowledge. May I add another?

Now, if you know me well enough, you would know that I am a massive "tripper"—id est, I love the style of music commonly referred to as trip-hop. And there are quite a number of artists across the world whose music fits that category. This quartet are probably one of the least known, courtesy of the fact that there was virtually no promotion associated with their sole album, not even a single. As such, I ended up having to go with the best (clearest) song I could find. It's not their best on the album, I'll admit, but it's the clearest one I could find on YouTube.

Spook - Running Away
Title: Re: Ao1's Internal iPod
Post by: vile8r on April 25, 2019, 10:07:13 AM
They have quite a haunting sound. I like it. I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of trip-hop, but most that I hear, I like.

Okay, I'll move away from Australian music for now, and introduce you to Brits Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman, a.k.a. 1 Giant Leap. The project is interesting, as when they did both albums, they also made accompanying films (which I don't have), and both dealt with a lot of philosophy alongside and within the songs. Additionally, they travelled the world to record these songs, so there's quite a mix of feature artists and musicians.

This one is from their eponymous debut, and it features the Mahotella Queens from South Africa, Eddi Reader from the UK, and Revetti Sakalar from India. There are also vocals from Pops Mohamed from South Africa (who also provided bird calls) and Yeye from Ghana, but they were excluded from the feature spot on the album. (I've also gone with the album version instead of the clip, as the clip version removes one of Eddi's verses, and adds a lot of additional philosophising; I think itwas a rip from the film.)

1 Giant Leap - Daphne

I'm glad I can help you out there. A lot of what I find comes from the two national broadcasters, who can afford to follow the left-of-centre line when it comes to music, some of it from picking friends' brains and CD collections, and some of it comes from just searching through YouTube, with a small few coming from music playlists. It also helps I have friends in the business too. (Spook is an exception; I found out about them from Wikipedia, just don't ask how.)

Speaking of friends, let's have a couple. For the first one, the singer is a friend of mine. She has quite a soulful voice. (You may need to turn the sound up; seems a little quiet to me for some reason.)

Roshani - Paid in Ink

Now the second one, the drummer is a friend. Small note, if you watched Roshani's video first, you may have a mild case of stylistic whiplash, as this is viking folk metal. I do apologise if that happens.

Trollgasm - Hummpa Hummpa!

Title: Re: Ao1's Internal iPod

Roshani was a huskier version of Joss Stone. Want to hear more from her since you failed to mention that she was a contestant on X-Factor Australia! By the sound of it she's a all-round singing talent!

Loved the music of Trollgasm, as per the genre style the lyrics were in places hard to understand but did like what I heard, not that much different than Celtic metal!

Yeah, the entire mess with Roshani on X-Factor was actually pretty unfair on her. She didn't get as far as she was worth in the final twelve because one of the judges couldn't get past the fact that she was from Tamworth and yet not a country singer. Annoyed me to no end, because he just kept with the stereotype, and the voters just bought it. She did, however, get a chance to meet her biological mother in India; there's video of that on YouTube. (Same cannot be said of her music, though; there were only two songs on there, three if you can find the clip for Devil n Gin. You might find it easier to find her album Paid in Ink.)

Sadly that was the only single they released. They ended up splitting up from personal differences.

Now, another song for everyone.

It happens more times than you think Army. In this case it's the uploader who failed to click the view by world tab.Other cases it's the source itself, Universal Music Australia won't allow Universal Canada to distribute their artists over a copyright dispute.

Okay, let's cheer up a bit, and go full chap! Chap-hop is basically what hip-hop would probably sound like if it had been invented by Victorian-era gentlemen. These two artists, Professor Elemental and Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer, are the two most prominent chap-hoppers. Like any other hip-hop artists, they've also had their "feud" with each other (if it could be called that). This song brought it all to a very comical head.

That's fair. I know there are some songs in my collection that will put people off; it's the reason why I've put off putting up one trip-hop song and the sole crunkcore song in my collection.

But today, I'm going to share with everyone a collection of songs I have for when I need a bit of a pick-me-up...or a keep-me-up (not that kind of keep-me-up!). It's my Happy Song collection. (I apologise in advance if any of these songs grate.)

Orange Caramel - Catallena

Spiderbait - Glockenpop (yes, I understand the irony of this song being in here)

Pharrell Williams - Happy

The Kooks - Junk of the Heart (Happy)

Hayzi Fantaysee- Shiny Shiny

Sakura Gakuin - Song for Smiling

Dornik - Strong

Now. I know not everyone likes emo; that's okay, not do I. However, this song I appreciate the musicality of. It's not just chords and four-on-the-floor; there's some style to this, like they put a lot of love and energy into it. Not sure on what the lyrics are about, mind.

This was really good and unlike most emo bands, this singer had a bit of stage presence, not looking like a pimply-faced kid in a t-shirt and jeans, lamenting why he can't get laid.

Okay, I just realised, I'm starting to run out of replies on this page, but also out of embeddings much faster. So I apologise if you don't see the videos themselves here; maybe I should've spread out sharing my happy song playlist.

Nonetheless, with the weekend coming up, let's have some drinking songs.

The Scaffold - Lilly the Pink

Weird Al Yankovic - Beer Song (Not the official clip—I don't think there was one—but the Trigun visuals just work brilliantly with this)

It's been too long since I added a song to this, so I think I'd better. And since Eurovision was not that long ago, I think I'll make it one of my favourite entries ever. No, not ABBA, or Celine Dion, or any of Australia's acts, or even t.A.T.u. for that matter. It's the Polish entry from 2014. And if you ever see the live performance...hoo boy!

Donatan & Cleo - My Słowianie (there is a subbed version of this video, if you want to know what she's singing)

Okay, so I was going to put up another K-pop song, then a parody tune from a YouTuber, but my wife had an idea. Not one she'll follow through on, but an idea nonetheless. It was to play the following song outside a Flat Earth meeting.

Yep.

As per a request of sorts from CHG, more K-pop! Now I really had to think about this one, as I wanted to put one up, but I thought the tune may have grated on some people, so I decided to play it safe and go with this one instead. Plus the zombie apocalypse setting of the clip is brilliant.

That's fine; we all have our like and dislikes. I think I remember saying before I don't expect everything I put up to land with everyone, so I can only really put it up and see what everyone says. (Well, except two which I'm fairly certain won't land at all with anyone but me.)

So let's go with that YouTube musician I talked about. I didn't even realise what she was parodying with this song until I watched Mulan for the first time.

I really had to work up to posting this next song on here, not because of what the song is, but more the story behind it for me. (I'll put up here a trigger warning, just to be on the safe side.)

This song is one of three that'll bring me to tears. The reason why is a bit of a long story, and it's one which I've questioned myself about putting up here pretty much for the past five hours (I'll explain why in a minute).

When I moved to where I currently live (more than a decade ago now), I was assigned to a school here as a probationary teacher. However, pretty much from day one, the school had received a whole lot of complaints about me, which they decided not to tell me about until halfway through the first term. During that time also, some of the students had taken it upon themselves to give me hell. About six months in, I ended up having to go to the hospital as a possible suicide risk.

Once I was discharged, Mum and Dad decided to take me home for those holidays, and Dad played this track for me. I can't remember the speech he gave while this played, but I think it was along the lines of, "Don't cut the wick of your candle of life off too soon." (I know, that's terrible; like I said, I can't remember the actual speech.) Once I was back here and back to work, I had a psychiatrist assigned to me, who gave me what is probably to me the most important diagnosis: Asperger's. Now, this wasn't a new one to me (others had suspected in the past that I did have it), but it was the first formal diagnosis I had received. Unfortunately, it ended up meaning nothing to most people at the school, and I ended up leaving eighteen months after I started.

A few (three or four) years ago, I decided to return to uni and do a Masters. That didn't last very long, as I struggled with it, and ended up having another breakdown, and just bailed from the degree program. I haven't properly recovered from that; it was just a decade and a half of crap just decided to spring forth and dominate my thinking.

As I said, I tossed up as to whether I should tell you guys this; right now, I'm sitting here going, "Ao1, there are members of this site who were raped"—hence the trigger warning; I'm sorry this is being used in such a manner—"compared to what happened to them, your issues are petty at best." Of course, there's another part of me that's going, "Are you sure you're not just making excuses for your ineptitude?" (that voice was louder earlier; I won't give reasons), and it can drive a massive amount of my thinking sometimes.

A beautiful song but a great band.

May I say that anytime someone presents a suicidal risk them it society's duty to try to find out why. Your problems you've experienced are just as valid here. Many say that we don't judge people based on what they tell us so i don't think you have anything to worry about when people read this. In my time here I seen members rally around people raped, sexually assaulted, verbally harassed. someone with low self esteem so don't think you will be excluded here!

Thank you for that, CHG. It's probably not going to change my thinking when I hit the rocks, but it does give me a little assurance when I'm okay that yes, there are people who understand your plight and are willing to listen.

Okay, let's move out of this depression zone, and have some J-pop.

That caught me so far out in left field that you hit a home run and all i did was watch the ball coming! A great song. Loved the beat. nothing like a double bass to supply the beat!

Okay, now that the Federal election is over, time for a little ditty from another friend of mine. She's one of the singers/guitarists, and is actually trained as an opera singer. And yes, this song rips the Australian government a new one about a very topical subject (and, by extension, any other politician who believes the same thing).

So, you should remember the Songs to Make Me Smile playlist I did about two pages ago? So you'll remember one of the songs was by the group Sakura Gakuin. Have a look a one of the soloists for that song. Now look at the lead singer for this group.

Yes, they are the same girl.

This group started as a subunit of Sakura Gakuin, before splitting off after their graduation. Alas, one of the members has since departed the group due to illness,  but they are still going strong today.

I came across this about four years ago, two years after they released it, a short time before America started spruiking about it, and three years before Australia discovered the band. And all fro a random link from the Sakura Gakuin song.

Oh, the fact that it was K-pop was not the issue, CHG; I've made it very clear in the past that I liked K- and J-pop, with very positive responses, so I'm not worried there. No, the part that worried me was the continuous, staccato "Ah" sounds in the background, which I thought may grate on some people.

Okay, I'm going to push the friendship almost to breaking point with this. This...is crunkcore, the conglomeration of every mid-noughties musical excess (autotune, emo/scene, electronic and programmed beats, you name it, it has it). As a result, it's not widely liked (among those who know about it, at least). This is pretty much the only one I like, and I reckon I'll probably get responses like, "You like that!?" (I won't blame anyone if I do.)

No, not the version by PinkSlip; I hate that one because it's Bowdlerised and the guitar solo in the middle kind of ruins the song. I mean the original by Lash, a band who really caught the short end of the stick in regards to promotion. I honestly think Spook had it better than Lash; I'd take no promotion over bad any day, especially if the music media called me "manufactured" despite having done it for years before getting a contract.

Okay, long time, no new music. So, allow me to present this recent gem. It's the newest song on my jukebox (really? jukebox? that is what you're calling it?), and I was directed to it through the video of the guest vocalist, who is a pretty prominent British YouTuber and gaming "journalist" (more gamer than journo, to be honest). The vocals are pretty personal to her, although she didn't explain the story in the announcement (she apparently had explained the story in another vid, but I haven't found it yet).

Marco was going ham in that? Seemed a bit too subdued to be ham. He was clearly putting on a show, but not so much hammy.

I don't think he goes in like that, vocally, in any other Nightwish song. So by those standards, he definitely was! :)
Although I haven't listened to anything by Nightwish since Once, so I could be wrong.

By the way, if you're looking for more Nightwish, I'd recommend 10th man down, over the hills and far away (Gary Moore cover), or Dead Boy's Poem.

It's okay; wife is actually a massive Nightwish fan. She went to see them when they came to Australia, and got their (at that point) most recent album Endless Forms Most Beautiful. I just sit on the periphery.

Okay, I'm going to put this up, as, like everything in this thread, it was playing in my head. And just so no-one asks: the word is made-up, apparently. I was trying to find the definition for quite a few days, but it turns out it was made up for the benefit of the song. (Thank you, SongFacts.)

Yeah, I will admit the dancing does seem to clash with the song itself. Working off what evidence I could collate (which is minimal), it seems to have been the winning choreography for a dance contest for the song.

XTC the green Man Got annoying to me by the 4 minute mark!
Maybe nostalgia has tinted my memories of it a reddish colour; I still like it, but understand it can grate.

Okay, this is an interesting song. It's from the masters of modern rock swing, Dire Straits, from their Brothers in Arms album, and it's a song I would love a friend of mine to do (yep, another one; I'll probably do a song from her next). It's probably very close to her style, which is Australian country (which I'm not a fan of), so she'd have no problem covering it. I even have a video idea she could use for it.

Dire Straits - The Man's Too Strong
Title: Re: Ao1's Internal iPod
Post by: Army of One on August 01, 2019, 03:52:19 AM
So, last post, I talked about a friend of mine possibly doing a song because it seemed to match musically with her. Well, this is that friend.

(Before I start, I think I've revealed enough on here for eagle-eyed members to be able to piece together at least where I used to live. So I won't feel like I'm revealing new information about me, even though I am really careful about what I do say about me.)

I grew up in Tamworth, best known as Australia's Country Music Capital, for better or worse; that said, I'm no fan of country music. It's up there with mainstream pop and emo. That said, I am friends with a country singer/songwriter, and do try and attend her concerts when she and I are in the same town. We lived relatively close, one street away from each other, facing the same block. (The block in question, however, was pretty big.)

This was her debut single. Now, I have never heard the song in full, for reasons I have already outlined. I am sorry if you dislike this; you won't be alone, but I'm still sorry.

Feel free to check her site for tour dates, and make the suggestion to her if there are no American stops. Just don't tell her I'm responsible for putting you onto her; one, she'll be confused as heck as to whom you're talking about, and two, if she does finally work who I am, depending on how much you tell her, she'll probably kill me.

I'm going to make this a dedication to one of our members. I won't say who; I probably don't need to.

(As I was about to post this, I did wonder as to whether this was the right song to put up, as I reread the story behind the song. But then one quote made my mind up for me: this is their fight, and to hell be damned they're resigning themselves to their fate. They're gonna throw punches, and smile while they do.)

You know what? Let's bring up one more friend. The sousa player in this one.

Now, pretty much every band member is a brassman; the percussionist and vocalist are the exceptions.No guitars, no bass, no keys. And yes, this was filmed a gaol. And, ironically enough, this song is about the brown gold many of you love.

Sorry for not commenting on Vast sooner- a beautiful song until the bass and drums entered. Lyrically beautiful

Okay, it's been a long time (feel tempted to sing Aaliyah's "Try Again" now), and I really wanted to do this one.

So, Australia has a band known for blurring genre lines called Regurgitator. To give you an idea, this is one of their songs.

Regurgitator - Polyester Girl

Now, recently, to the surprise of both everyone and no-one, they decided to do a children's album, as part of a project called Regurgitator's Pogogo Show. It is very Regurgitator-esque, in a very un-Regurgitator way, I think. They even performed at a preschool.

Phantogram - Fall in Love
Title: Re: Ao1's Internal iPod
Post by: Army of One on November 13, 2019, 08:30:00 AM
This next one is another one of my "ballers", i.e. the songs that make me cry. However, unlike Candle of Life, it depends on my mindset I'm in when I listen to it. Sometimes, it reminds me about why I do what I'm doing, why I'm in the position I currently am. (If that seems a bit cryptic, go back to the Candle of Life post (http://ravishu.com/forums/index.php?topic=44192.msg357777#msg357777) and read the story there.) It reminds me that I had to pull myself out of a place where I was essentially disposable if not manipulatable. It's a cruel thing to say, but such is the current state of education in Australia.

Then there's the other direction, the one that does make me cry. It's when I start thinking that my current choices could be destructive in the long term. This is rarer, though, and one of those times, I did KB/RU as one of those destructive choices (and, especially, my RP leanings). I've since questioned that line of thought.

Okay, long time since my last contrib. This one has a story behind it. But first, in a break from the usual format, the song.

Operator Please - Two For My Seconds

When this was written, it was about the band's original violinist, Stephanie Joske, who left the band to pursue classical music. Shortly after it was released as a single, Sarah Gardiner, the keyboardist and cowriter of the song, announced her departure. Nothing unusual so far.

Then local news media starting running (https://www.pedestrian.tv/entertainment/sarah-gardiner-ex-operator-please-member-in-porn/) a rumour (https://celebrity.nine.com.au/latest/former-operator-please-teen-turns-porn-star/f63dc3ca-64ac-4439-9968-c3756ecd01fd) that Sarah had posed for porn site Abby Winters under the pseudonym Tricia L. OP's management caught wind but refused to comment, and it quietly blew over.

I have checked out Tricia's profile on the site (feel free to have a look yourselves (https://www.abbywinters.com/nude_girl/redhead/tricia_l)), and the two bear some physical similarities, as well as the red headband that Sarah wore for performances. But are they one and the same person? Jury's out there. But for a brief moment--two of my seconds (ha ha)--the song seemed to fit Sarah more than the original subject.

The one thing I hate more than my brain is shopping mall music. Sometimes my brain hears a song in the mall and goes, "Remember when everyone and their dog played this? Let's cycle it in your head until another one comes along." It's annoying, to say the least.

Once again, the mall presents another earworm. I'm too young to properly remember the duo; my memory of them is based predominantly around repeats of Sweet Dreams, Here Comes the Rain Again, and this one (hence why I think of them as electronic pop; not too sure on the accuracy of that classification).

Yeah, I read that when I decided to do my research on them after posting. Australia seems to be very popular with overseas bands.

Okay, I'm going to get this out of my head now before it gets buried under everything else. Usually when you think of this band, you'd probably think Shiny Happy People, Losing My Religion, It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine), Man on the Moon, Everybody Hurts or even (more recently) The Great Beyond. When I heard this song, I either hadn't heard the first five, or hadn't associated them with the band, and the last one hadn't been released yet. It didn't fare well, I think; shame, because it's a jam.

I remember that Eurythmics track. I actually liked it, though it wasn't one of their bigger hits. Haven't seen that video in quite a while.

As for R.E.M., I have always found people either consider them being very over-rated or very under-rated. I tend to think the latter. I have always really liked them although I didn't really get into them until about 1987 with the release of the Document album. I remember the song Lotus only vaguely from the '90s. but it is a great song. Thanks for posting, Army!

Okay, this one has a bit more to it than I had originally planned. So stick around for a bit.

So, I'm going to fall back into my stylistic comfort zone—trip hop. I've gone with the clip version instead of the album version, because there's actually a section in the album version that peeves me off, and it isn't in the clip version.

DJ Shadow - Six Days

Now, in finding this song, I also came across the source of the vocal sample.

That song always brings back memories of sitting around a backyard firepit with a bunch of people on a warm summer night in '97, at about 2 in the morning, after consuming way too many beers and someone put this on the stereo. It just so fit the mood of the night.

Okay, back again for another song. But, first thing's first: if you want to listen to all the songs in this thread, I created an unlisted playlist of them all (I know some will not show in certain places; I do apologise for that, even though it is not my fault) on YouTube. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLknvSrfenO3E8Y8HysKE_QumcDZCNqdMq (I also had to make the list for myself as well, otherwise I was going to repeat songs.)

Now, the song. You may not agree with everything stated in this song (I personally agree with about half of its points), but it does hold some relevance now to when it did when it was released in 2004. As one person put it in the comments for this video (five years ago at time of writing, I might add), "The fact this is still relevant ten years later is kind of sad."

So, here's one that I remember from some time ago. When I went searching for it on here, a rap poem of the same name turned up in the results as well; turns out this is the lyrical sample for this song. I won't link it here, but I will include it in the YouTube playlist...actually, no, I'll post both here.

Okay, so Silverchair are a band that seemed to be a mainstay of the Australian music scene for much of the 90s and 00s. Starting out as a Nirvana-influenced grunge band when they were discovered, slowly taking on more musical complexity starting with Neon Ballroom, then backing away from the grunge label completely and into baroque pop for Diorama and Young Modern, the band had grown musically over their fifteen year existence. Now, granted, they have their critics—one reviewer seemed to have a hard-on for giving them absolute shit, reducing them to "immature" with "an obvious inability to write meaningful lyrics" (note, not actual quotes)—but for the most part, they've earned their place in the Australian music pantheon.

These two tracks represent only a small part of their growth; I could do a full maturation stream, but that'd waste what remains of my embed limit. So, we'll start with the grunge era, namely near the end (Neon Ballroom), when they were starting to take on more complexity in their music, although this track won't make it obvious; it's kind of the last throwback to their simpler grunge sound. (As a side note, notice how the themes in this song and its accompanying music video still match what's happening now.)

Silverchair - Anthem for the Year 2000

And now the baroque pop era. I know The Greatest View is probably a better choice here, and serves as the perfect bridge between the two eras, but I have to keep my video choices minimal, and I quite like this song personally. It was one of the last singles the band released, and I'm fairly certain the last one that charted. (Also, excuse the video quality.)

Woah, haven't heard Silverchair in a while. I remember Anthem being huge back in the day. I was actually more into the other songs on that same album, like Ana's Song, Steam Will Rise, and Black Tangled Heart. Never listened to them beyond that album though.

They split up after the last single from Young Modern was released. At that point, they had been in it longer than the Beatles, and I think they were starting to just get sick of it. The short break and stylistic change helped break the stagnation, but that only prolonged the inevitable. Only Daniel Johns stuck around in the industry, forming other bands; I think the other two full-on retired.

Silverchair - Yeah I liked them back in the '90s. I remember a couple of their songs, Anthem for the year 2000 being one of them, of course. Personally I like that second song better. Anthem was good, but really it was mostly a hit in Canada because the simpleton idiots that run commercial radio here overplayed the shit out of it because, "Oh cool, they're singing about the year 2000 and it's almost the year 2000! How hip!" It was a bright shiny thing and it caught their attention for a short time.

En Vogue - Yes, I always liked En Vogue. That song certainly does carry some relevance to current events.

There's not much I can say about this song. It's the only one from this group I've heard, and as far as I can tell, while it's highly regarded, and probably the best known, I think there are others in their back catalogue that are more highly appreciated by fans.

According to research, Phil commissioned the Spitting Image puppeteers to do the clip after seeing their take on him.

I'll focus on the chorus here. I first heard it on Alcazar's "This Is The World We Live In"; now that I know from where they lifted it, I'm very angry at the band and especially the songwriters, as they've disarmed a potent statement by making it about clubs and discotheques.

I will grant you at least that Rockit was an odd composition for a jazz musician; way too electronic.

Of course, this comes from a guy who went from jazz to trip-hop, although the jump makes a bit more sense there, especially when you consider one of my favourite bands is Portishead.

So, if you grew up during the 70s and 80s (or even the 90s if you were in Australia), then you would probably be familiar with a Japanese show called Monkey, which adapted the 16th century Chinese epic Journey to the West. It was a great, slightly cheesy show, and school-aged me loved it!

Well, in 2018 and 2019, Australia and New Zealand decided to adapt that for The New Legends of Monkey. It's a good mix (to me; opinions may vary) of the same cheese factor that gave the original its charm, along with great storytelling, and a little loving pastiche (like Pigsy using an earphone in his rake to hear something through the ground, or Sandy narrating out loud while she writes). But the thing that sets it apart is its occasional callbacks to the original, from Tripitaka being female (in the original, he was played by a woman, since I think Tripitaka was a boy in JttW; here, the girl masquerades as Tripitaka after the original is believed killed, including pretending to be a boy), to more subtle calls like using the original's weapons in a retelling sequence, and two uses of the opening theme.

If you have Netflix, check it out on there; if you live in Australia or NZ, it should be on ABC iView or...whatever the NZ equivalent is.

For now, though, here's the original's opening theme, to help bring back memories. Only the first verse was used in the show, so we avoided the wailing synths prevalent in the rest of the song. Sorry in advance for hurting your eardrums.

According to WhoSampled.com (https://www.whosampled.com/The-Avalanches/Frontier-Psychiatrist/samples/), there are twenty-five individual tracks sampled in this song, of different varieties, with different sampling densities, from the most sampled one, a comedy skit which provides the song its name, all the way down to a half-second sample of the Count (from Sesame Street) sneezing.

Okay, the internal iPod goes political again.

To all the American members from an Australian one: we know how it feels to have such a reviled leader. John Howard was in power here for about eleven years (approximately), and despite some flashes of genius, he was an idiot. Politics was changed forever here; it will also be so there. The best you can do is hope to rise above the wreckage and build anew.

This was written post-Howard defeat, but a lot of what us said can apply to America as well. I held off until after Biden was sworn in because I didn't want to get caught out if the outgoing president pulled another trick.

As many of you have noticed, my presence here has been more sporadic of late. I've been a bit distracted elsewhere, so to make it up to you all, here's a song. And yes, that's Sarah Michelle Gellar in the video.

Stone Temple Pilots - Sour Girl

Never really listened to Stone Temple Pilots when they first played on the radio, but thanks to people like you my eyes are being opened to what I have been missing. Really liked the song, very melodic compared to their earlier work! Merit awarded from me!

I know the initial squeals may get on people's nerves, but once you get past that, there is a good song in there, even if it gets overshadowed by the like of "Naughty Boy", "Cry" and "Lever" from the same album.

The Mavis's - Snow White Line

Once more I have never heard of them but this gives me reason to discover more by them.  Once more a personal thankyou for introducing me to them merit awarded.

Okay...probably a bit nonsensical here, but this one I'll just give the vid link for, due to the fact that there are under-18s in the clip. (I still gave to laugh at the fact that they convinced the school to let them be in it!)

To knowledge, all the bands featured are supposed to be ones active around Melbourne at the time of filming; I certainly know five are real (six if you include the school band), which serves to reinforce the point of the song...I think...I think it's about following the trend, regardless how ridiculous. I need to check those lyrics.

In a case like this video, the underage people have no meaning of censorship, it's not like they are sexually exploited playing music (Damn if they were than I suffered years of abuse from 1979-1984!)

Never heard of any of those bands which I chalk up to the underground Australia music bar scene! Overall I loved how they were using there song to help promote interest in the other bands. Loved the lyrics as "Thunderbirds" was one of my favorite shows growing up!

Will check out more from them as I click on the merit button!

I have heard of 28 Days, Klinger and Mach Pelican. Bloodduster and New Waver also have Wikipedia pages. The rest never got recording contracts, if they existed, so confirmation was really difficult there.

Why it sometimes pays to read other people's music threads.

Yay! So embedded videos are back. Perfect timing for this.

I'm aware of three versions of this song. The original by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons served as the basis for this cover, and has now largely been supplanted by it, if the Måneskin version (the third version I'm aware of) is any indication. I'm doing this one, since it's the first version I knew about (from the Uncovered compilation by Ministry of Sound, so I knew it was a cover), and, as J said, is now pretty much the basis for all over covers from here on in.

Kinda funny how that will happen to a song. For example, You Really Got Me, by Van Halen. They did it as a cover of the Kinks' original on their 1978 debut album. But now, when any band does it, it's considered a cover of a Van Halen song!

This is one where you really can't call it a cover. It surpassed the original to take a life of it's own and demanded that others use it to cover. Now that said is it any better thaw the original, no just updated that's all! Still gets a merit from me fpr posting it!

I'll agree with the surpassing part, and not just in the way you just described. I do think it is superior to the original, with the additional lyrics; mind you, because I heard the original second, that may be the cause of that belief.

A similar thing happened when Joss Stone covered Fell in Love with a Girl by the White Stripes, although taken one step further because the latter band took inspiration from the former, and slowed down the original during live performances.
