Here are some catchy Finnish pop/rock songs from the 70s and the 80s, basically the soundtrack of my childhood.

Juice Leskinen & Grand Slam: Rakkauden ammattilainen ("A professional of love")


Leevi & The Leavings: En tahdo sinua enää ("I don't want you any longer")


Hector: Asfalttiprinssi ("Asphalt prince")


Eppu Normaali: Joka päivä ja jokaikinen yö ("Every day and every night")

At the Drive-In is reuniting and recording a new album, and 19-year-old me is flipping the fuck out. http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/0...d-tour-in-2016

I felt like listening to A Fifth of Beethoven* so I searched for the song on Spotify. The first hit was on the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever, so I decided to play the entire thing. I have never watched the movie, but surprisingly almost every song was familiar to me. Disco Inferno**, More than a Woman*** and Staying Alive**** are still played on radio regularly. Almost every other track was at least somewhat familiar, but what was also surprising that there were a handful of songs I had no recollection of hearing before. Like Manhattan Skyline, by David Shire*****, and If I Can't Have You, by Yvonne Elliman******. I wonder why - a lot of the other songs I have heard so often that I know them by heart and could probably play if I had any particular ability with an instrument.

Anyway, this was my story about listening to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever.

pop structure is cool because it explores the efficiency of manipulating the audience’s emotions

it’s tricky because letting oneself be manipulated is a matter of trust on the part of the audience, and context of discovery often seems like the key to letting oneself be manipulated

i love the idea of pop like anyone else but i have my innate biases. you can’t help taste but you can try to control your judgements.

i like instruments over electronics, universally, because the notion of sound coming out in real time from 1:1 human action is impossibly cool to me.

i also finally found someone IRL to talk about this sort of thing but he's a miserable elitist sadsack like me but we love eachother. It's painful but great.

This would be a great thread in which to quarantine that.

I think there are enough closet Hamilton fans here to support a new thread

Finally, my dreams of being a Theremin master can be realized!

Also, I'll be spending all of Memorial Day Weekend playing around with this thing.

Does anyone know if that trumpet-heavy style of music old anime and tokusatsu intros used has an actual name? I'm mostly asking because of a random Tumblr post introducing me to a piece of music in that style in Hebrew:

I have a sudden random need for more Frank Zappa in my life. I have Apostrophe and Roxy and Elsewhere, but for some reason have never gotten anything else by him (those I got from my dad forever ago). Since the man has approximately 8000 albums, I'm not really sure where to go next. I like the bluesy rock with silly-but-sometimes-serious lyrics of Apostrophe a lot, so I guess I'm asking what else is like that?

Based on what you're looking for, I would say start with Sheik Yerbouti and Joe's Garage; Zoot Allures is also good. Beyond that I couldn't say, it's been a while since I've listened to Frank Zappa; those are the ones that came immediately to mind.

You might dig One Size Fits All. You Are What You Is is a lot of fun and generally overlooked, though it's less "bluesy" and more of a wacky stylistic mish-mash.

I'll throw a curveball* and recommend Shiny Beast by Captain Beefheart. It is exactly bluesy rock with silly-but-sometimes-serious lyrics, and he was friends with Zappa and had stuff in common and all of that. Great album.

In terms of Zappa, i'll second You are what you is and recommend Freak Out!.

If after this you start liking his jazz side, there's Hot Rats and Burnt Weeny Sandwich. We're only in it for the money has funny lyrics, but they are somewhat dated, and musically it's not that great (for me, at least).

* Hope i used the expression right.

I have no strong feelings on Bon Iver, but the tracklist to their just-announced new album seems designed to make you love them even more if you love them, or hate them even more if you hate them.

1. 22 (OVER S∞∞N)
2. 10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄
3. 715 - CR∑∑KS
4. 33 “GOD”
5. 29 #Strafford APTS
6. 666 ʇ
7. 21 M◊◊N WATER
8. 8 (circle)
9. ___45_____
10. 00000 Million

The music I liked when I was younger has taken on an unpleasantly creepy edge in hindsight. I mean, look at this lyric from Ray Parker Jr. (yes, the Ghostbusters guy):

Quote:
You can change your telephone number
And you can change your address too
But you can't stop me from loving you
No, you can't change that, no, no
Should I be dialing 9-1-1 right now?

Wait wait, then there's this memorable line from Chicago:

Quote:
I want you to know one thing is certain
I surely love your company
And I won't take no if that's your answer
At least that's my philosophy
(grabs can of pepper spray)

It's like people who get married to the Police's Every Breath You Take...

Did you not listen to the words in that song?!

Default the mountain of ignorance and privilege this lady stands upon...

I don't know if a person could miss the point more completely than this ignorant white lady did...



Of course the internet is beating the shit out of her. I'm just sad she couldnt have seen the song as an opportunity to talk to her kid about systematic racism and how it creates cycles of violence that those trapped in it can only escape if at all through such narrow channels as the music or sports industry...

The artist himself has addressed the issue with a great deal of tact.

And of course there are remixes now.

Steam Powered Giraffe is playing my alma mater this Saturday. I'm tempted to go, but it would honestly be more to see them in motion than for the music - I don't dislike their playing but I haven't listened to them enough to know if I want to listen to them live for an hour or so.

I was not prepared for the music industry to start recycling and regurgitating the music of my youth.

I really wasn't prepared for The Offspring to be the source for such a cover.

I was prepared for it to be awful.




And it was!
