For the guitar hero inside you, Queen and Pachabel would be impressed. (Warning: crank it!)

Did you see Youtube Live when funtwo came out with a guitar shaped like Korea and played it with Joe Satriani?

Vast - Pretty When You Cry. Somewhat disturbing, but nothing that bad :)

Bjarke - White Christmas. A spoof done by a Danish television channel, I love how they've nailed the whole self-importance/obsession of the gothic scene. And the track doesn't sound all that bad either ;)

Zelda CD-i Remix: Drop the Dodongo. The vocals were taken from the terrible Legend of Zelda games on the CD-i. There's also a version of the song with the animation from the actual games here.

The sad thing is that the animation for the remix is better than what you see on the real games.

Kind of NSFW because they edit the audio to change "for luck" into "for luck."


EDIT: embedded the video directly into the post.

Ignorance is Bliss by Jellyfish. This animation isn't the original/official music video, and I think the animator decided to make some stupid political commentary at the beginning (and throughout) about oil companies, but the song itself and the animation are quite good. YouTube version is here but the NewGrounds version is much higher quality.

Superboyac - that's wonderful stuff. I've gotta admit I dont know much about jazz and have been put off by meandering improvisations that just weren't my cup of tea - but that "rocks" if I may say so  ;-)   I'm not even a very big rock music fan but you get my meaning!


Well, i have more such songs/videos links to post here, but i'm not sure if anyone is as trance addicted as me. :p
thanks for the links Mahesh, I'm loving it - working like a maniac here listening to that stuff ;D
John O'Callaghan & ATB - Summer Rain mix are favourites so far (working my way down the list - havent heard the last couple yet)


Eva Cassidy - Fields of Gold
http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=ZGwDYBWEDSc
wow,
she is amazing, what a voice!

have a listen to Mary Margaret O'Hara When You Know Why You're Happy another woman with an absolutely amazing voice ... other good tracks are "Year in Song" "Bodies in Trouble" - she can be fairly eccentric btw ;-)


EDIT/ havent even looked at this page yet ...

I am going to take you off the beaten path with some of these.  ;)

april: Marvelous selections.

I was especially impressed by Godspeed You Black Emperor. GYBE was a new group for me, and that's something that doesn't happen all too often.

With taste like yours, please feel free to take me off the beaten path anytime you like.

tomos:

Here's another woman with an amazing voice: Karen Matheson of the band Capercaillie. Try these two for starters.

Four Stone Walls

Canan Nan Gaidheal
http://www.youtube.c...&feature=related

And since we're doing Celtic, give these a try:

Solas-Coconut dog/morning dew

Altan - Súil Ghorm

Wow! This ended up as a very interesting thread (quite predictably, though). Lots of interesting stuff.

Let me add a coupe more videos,

First, Imogen Heap's beautiful and unmistakable voice:


And also, a little something from my homeland: Tangow

Piazzollaw's Libertango as interpreted by Yo-Yo Maw's wonderful cello





I'll have what she's having

god, I'll never keep up with all this stuff ;D
from App I really enjoyed these
I am going to take you off the beaten path with some of these.  ;)
...
Stringfever - Bolero
...
Corporeal - All We Got
...
Godspeed You Black Emperor - Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls
the Godspeed You Black Emperor one is especially good

@40hz -
the Solas, Capercaille and Altan tracks are all great - the Solas one I hadnt heard before - I've listened to a couple of theirs now - they're making really super music!
The Karen Matheson song I find a bit "foreign" -maybe seeing as I'm irish- LOL

I think Mary Margaret O'Hara would be in better company though with somethig like the Cocteau Twins e.g. Aikea Guinea or This Mortal Coil

Here's two interesting vids of Steffan Schackinger that a friend pointed me to. It features a fiddler/violinist by the name of Jane Clark, who comes from Limerick Ireland.

Mssr. Schackinger doesn't give her a huge amount of room to show us what she can do (i.e. he tends to overdo the flash and hog the stage) but what you can hear is quite good. Her string tone is sweet. I would call her playing style more tasteful than virtuosic, but that's hardly a bad thing. Especially if you're getting a little overwhelmed by the likes of Anna Phoebe or Lucia Micarelli.

And it's always nice to watch a musician who is so obviously enjoying herself just playing music.

Check it out. Very talented fiddler. (And not too hard on the eyes either! ;D)

Thank you for that. If you have anything else from Argentina that you'd care to share, I would love to hear it.

I'm very sadly lacking in my knowledge of South American music. What little I know has mostly been filtered through Herbie Mann and Dizzy Gillespie.

But once you go beyond a bass player's knowledge of the various dance structures (and the three types of clave ;D) I'm totally clueless.

What's good from where you are that we should all be listening to? :)

Amazing. :-*

I already had my credit card out after the second sample on Amazon. How long has this been going on?

http://www.amazon.co...229042975&sr=8-1

I especially liked: Tangaria; Chat pître; and Barbara. But I was completely blown away by Indifférence!

I'm thinking of what Indifférence would sound like scored for bass, jazz drums, and two flutes. It might be fun to arrange it so that the two flutes divide the melody and  "chase" each other back and forth like a couple of dueling sparrows. Ah, the possibilities... (hmm...maybe I'd better get started on that...)

Thank you ever so much. :)

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

Seems there's a lot of videos of Mssr. Galliano up on YouTube:

Enrico Rava And Richard Galliano play Spleen
http://www.youtube.c...&feature=related

Exquisite number with one of the arguably greatest trumpet players that ever lived. Enrico Rava was superb back when he played with Gato Barieri.  He's gotten even better since.

And this:

Richard Galliano Trio with Gary Burton - Il Postino
http://www.youtube.c...&feature=related

And...

(Oh Bloody! Now I know what I'm going to be doing for the next few days whenever I get a spare moment... ;D)

Hi, I'm very glad that you liked that small sample of music from my country  :)

As for more music ... Of course! Now you'll have to stop me!  ;D

Bear in mind that there are a lot of different types of music being played in Argentina, though obviously most have not originated here. Probably the two best known styles which are typically Argentinian are Tango and a group of styles collectively referred to as Argentinian Folk music (among them Chacarera, Zamba, Chamamé). Other types of music, like Jazz, are played here with a slightly different flavor (more on that later  ;))

Back to Tango. Oversimplifying a bit (this is a software forum after all  :P), Tango has three main genres: Classic, "New Tango" and Tango fusion or electro-tango. The previous clip (Yo-yo Ma playing Piazzolla) was "New Tango". Here's a clip of a couple dancing arguably the best known melody of Classic Tango: "La Cumparsita".
Yes, they actually are dancing on a quay a few feet inches from the water  :o  :)

Cumparsita.jpg

Cool, uh?


The newest trend in Tango is to mix it with very modern rhythms (mainly electronica, hence "electro-tango" or "Tango fusion"). A couple of clips of this style:

First, a group named Bajofondo, led by two-time Oscar winner Gustavo Santaolalla (he won in 2006 and 2007 for the music of "Brokeback Mountain" and "Babel" respectively). Name of the song: "Montserrat", performed live in Warsaw, Poland

Bajofondo.jpg


A somewhat different type of electro-tango is played by the Gotan Project trio. Song: "Diferente"

Diferente.jpg


I'm sure that by now anyone who has watched the tango clips is wondering what the hell that strange accordion-like musical instrument is. Short answer: it's a bandoneónw

Ok, that's a crash course in tango. Longer courses available on request  :D


As for Argentinian Folk music, it's hard to choose a single clip/song (I don't want to flood the thread). But eventually I chose a typical song performed by a very talented group who are one of the "new faces" in folk music: Los Nocheros. Song: "La chacarera del rancho", performed live at the Viña del Mar festival in 2003. You'll immediately notice how different this is from tango. (Note: the added text with the "Star Wars effect" is awful, I know, but it was the only clip of this song I could find :-[)

Nocheros.jpg


And finally, this post wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention Gato Barbieri, the best jazz player ever to come out of the Pampasw
Here's Barbieri playing "Last tango in Paris" (from the 1972 movie of the same name):

Barbieri.jpg


Phew! Writing this post took longer than I thought, but thoroughly enjoyed it.
I hope you enjoyed it too, and that you could discover new musical styles that you probably never heard before.
If you have any questions about the styles or the performers that I mentioned, just ask me.
I'll have what she's having

This is a good one, catchy song, cute video : TISM - Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me. I would describe it NSFW as you could guess from the name, but in all honesty it's tame and humorous, nothing crude.

The link above is the YouTube one but the higher quality .SWF can be download from Trunk Monkey.
