Does anyone not like Weird Al?† I used to Listen to him on cassette tapes Smiley
Also... They Might Be Giants

The most entertaining back-to-back TMBG songs (the second one corrects errors in the first):

Wow spot on... Musically you are like a twin to my older brother. They Might be Giants was one I remember he liked. Cake was one of his favorites as well.

Now if you tell me you like the Dumb and Dumber soundtrack I'll be really spooked.

weird al was fun.

When it's as hot as it is in the uk at the moment I like a bit of chuck berry:


And of course the eponymous Mungo Jerry with: In The Summertime.
Possibly too politically incorrect to be played much these days.
'have a drink, have a drive go out and see what you can find' etc Smiley



Mind you I'm still mostly just playing wall to wall battle beast Smiley


Noora louhimo just has the most perfect voice and attacking approach to metal since bruce dickenson.

I think I know something you might like Morphy that's maybe a bit similar to Soma.

https://youtu.be/jih29bmwOSY

Melvins are my favourite band and I firmly believe everyone on the planet can find at least one song they like of theirs. They've covered so many different styles, it's impossible to not like something. The song above is a little... dark. It's kind of a happy little tune with super dark lyrics that then goes very psychadelic...

"I cut the throat of a billy goat and let it bleed,
His frozen eyes were far more than I,
It's kind of nice,
To know the things that make me happy,
Just realize,
Keep the dog away from me..."

So pretty dark...

This song is quite possibly my favourite song ever. It's certainly the best cover of a song ever produced. The original version is the theme tune to the old 70's British sitcom Are You Being Served?, a thoroughly camp silly comedy set in a department store.

Coil covered the theme and... transformed it. They took a comedy shows opening theme listing the floors of a department store and elevated it to this hauntingly beautiful, angelic piece. The juxtaposition of this stupid theme tune with their treatment of it and the fact one of Coil's members, Johnn Balance, died before it was released, is just... incredible. It's absurd and wonderful and sad and... the lyrics are just listing shopping departments but sounds like the choir announcing your arrival in heaven. I love it. I'm going to have it at my funeral.

That was good. The psychedelic part was nice as well. They should make a longer version with more of that.  Smiley

Never heard of them, that's a pretty good song.

Here's one of the great rock classics of all time Imo.

Nothing wrong with a little RATM. I sometimes have to separate myself from the message and just enjoy the tune.

My daughter (who is 9) and I will play Minecraft battlemode with robot skins to Daft Punk. She's really into techno, electronic, new wave etc. That's my girl. She can hold her own on battle mode. Makes me wonder how many people realize they just got killed by a 9 year old girl.  Grin
