OK, I didn't know where to post this. Here, or the Humour thread.... I think here is most appropriate.

If you're an old-school Metallica fan, you'll either love it or hate it.
Either way, you're not going to believe it...
At all.


I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or bang my head furiously.
...So I did all three...

@Edvard - your post confused me quite a lot. Van Canto is of course a thousand times better than Metallica, and I *like* their album, but totally dislikes Metallica's music, (except for Mamma Said). And opposite of my opinion about Metallica, I can take Van Canto seriously; they are not a joke, but well educated singers. So, keep banging your head...

Curt, sorry if I confused you, I was not disparaging Van Canto.
In fact, I liked this and their other music (I had also seen the Wishmaster video, thank you) so much that I plan to purchase their albums as soon as I have the means to do so.
They are obviously VERY talented vocalists in their own right, and their music is definitely NOT something that your average rube can duplicate.

It's just that formerly being a VERY dedicated Metallica fan, seeing something so unusual done with their music induced a large bout of cognitive dissonance.
So at first I was amused, then alarmed, then finally to enjoy what I was experiencing.

Considering that, I just HAD to share it with all of you.

Joke or not, you can't help but laugh a bit when you listen to guitar and bass lines played by human voices.

Love it! (and so does my daughter)

Thanks for that.  :D

I love cover tunes when the artist doesn't try to be so true to the original that it's like a cheap knock-off. I prefer when an artist brings something truly original to it that makes it just as much theirs as the original artist. If you can't "own" the song you are covering, why even bother covering it?

Anyone can probably enjoy these two clips of genius.  It combines my favorite music (Count Basie) with some of my favorite comedy (Jerry Lewis, Family Guy).

The original from the movie, "The Errand Boy":

yes, ..., great quality, ...

-good :-)

It is hard for me to understand what it takes to have YouTube keeping the uploaded quality. I can see (a few) other people managing it, but I haven't been able to do it myself. No matter how good format and quality, I upload, YouTube will always diminish it. The original file that I uploaded this time was 350MB, but the best quality available now is 130MB 211MB. Fine, of course, but not as fine as the original. For normal videos, Facebook actually keeps a BETTER quality, than YouTube!

Here is the always amazing Ella Fitzgerald singing in front of Count Basie Orchestra.  That's as close to perfection as it's going to get.  I just posted this on youtube and I think you guys will thank me for this!

This is the most ass-kickingest blues saxophone I've ever heard.  The wonderful Jimmy Forrest with the legendary Count Basie orchestra.  Oh my.

There was a ~2 minute segment in a Minecraft video where the player met a little slime creature. That short segment inspired this song/video.

I know what you mean.  When I first started learning, I struggled with the sound of jazz.  i was always thinking, "Man, this is REALLY boring.  I'm trying to like it...but I can't.  What am I not getting?!"  Anyway, years later i realized that there was nothing wrong with me.  Most jazz really IS boring.  Sheesh.  I even took lessons from the top players around here just to confirm it for me, because i was really uncomfortable with that thought.  But i finally found jazz that was awesome, fun, and you don't have to be a jazzhead to enjoy it.

OK, I'm going to put myself out there:

I hope you guys enjoy it.  I'm not a big fan of solo piano jazz, but I couldn't get a good trio together so I had to play this.  So, I don't think this song is all that exciting, but it's pretty good.  It was more of overcoming a challenge for me.  I felt I had crossed some line where I could play legitimate jazz now, so I learned that song from my favorite piano player, Gene harris.  I plan to do more later, better stuff, too.  I'm MUCH better now.  That was a great experience for me.

The funny thing about it is that the song that immortalized Squishy lasts twice as long as him. The slime's lifetime was about 2 minutes. The song is >4 minutes long. :D :(

OK...time to resurrect this thread. IMHO, it's one of the most interesting topics that ever showed up on this forum. :Thmbsup:

Here's a hugely talented lady that brings back memories of the great female rock/blues singers of the late 60s and very early 70s. Her name is Dana Fuchs who (despite a very loyal following) deserves to be much better known than she is.

This video is from her live performance at B.B. King's in NYC. The song is called Almost Home, and you can watch it here. No fancy choreography, half-naked dancers, tattoo pose-downs, special effects, or staging in this vid. Just five and a half minutes of solid music by a woman who knows how to do it - and does. Those who remember Janis Joplin before her tragic last few years may feel a twinge of recognition in the musicality and passion behind this performance.

Check out her other videos on YouTube. Then go buy her albums. Highly recommended. 8)

Not in the least.

I have a great deal of respect for any grown woman who has enough confidence in who she is, what she looks like, and what she's about, that she can be a little 'playful' without going over the top about it.

Fortunately, she's more than sufficiently talented that she doesn't need to rely on her considerable looks or sensuality to make us want to listen to her.

That's rather...refreshing, don't you think?  ;D

------------------

P.S. Even my GF was amused by that single button. Her only comment: "Wow! She's really something, huh?"  ;D :Thmbsup:
