I don't know what they're saying, and I can't help but feel that I'm being scolded for doing something wrong, but I can think of worse ways to be scolded.



That's Ievan Polkka.  It's gotten to be an internet thing since about 2006 or so.  Nope, they aren't scolding (well, maybe); check out the lyrics (farther down the page in the second link)

Tank and the Bangas.. Stumbled across this yesterday.. The energy and style of this band is a joy to behold.  Singer's voice reminded me a bit of Amy Whinehouse:


Thanks, Mouser. I love NPR's tiny desk. It's mid night in my time zone and I still can't find myself a reason to sleep just yet.  :up:

I’ve been listening to a lot of Symphonic Metal lately. Especially the Finnish metal band Nightwish in their latest incarnation with Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen.

Here’s a couple:

If you've never heard of a band called Shadow Gallery, you should check them out.

And something very special that's not on that playlist, just for Pink Floyd fans:

I had heard of them, but I hadn’t listened to them prior to your link.

Went through about half of that playlist last night. Interesting band. More prog-metal than symphonic to my ears. But still quite enjoyable.

Thx for the link!  :Thmbsup:

Speaking of Finnish Symphonic Metal, can't go past a little Apocalyptica:



This isn't available on YT that I can find but another mashup from DJ Schmolli:
Vikings on Dark Horses (Amon Amarth vs. Katy Perry ft. Juicy J)

And from one of my favourite places on the planet, The HU ft. Jacoby Shaddix:

Stumbled across this one, added to my likes.

Wardruna by Lyfjaberg

Goes well with my latest likes - theme from "Vikings", "Expanse" and "Halo". At least, *I* think it does! :-)

Another bit of symphonic metal with the band Epica featuring their vocalist Simone Simons paired with her long-time friend Floor Jansen of Nightwish as guest vocalist. Two world class singers on stage at the same time along with a full orchestra and choral section. What’s not to like?

The title Sancta Terra translates to Sacred or Holy Ground. Simone Simons said in an interview it’s not quite about what you think. It’s the tale of a suicide bomber who is in hell, which for him is a completely empty place, but which he believes is heaven and where he belongs. As the lyrics say;

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I'm where I want to be

It's a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you'll see I'm right

It's a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light

It's a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be

Feeling tired and a little down today. Today being a gloomy rainy day after the second Covid booster I got yesterday afternoon will do that to you I suppose.

I need a little pick me up. Nightwish, Peter Gabriel, and the capella vocal group Home Free to the rescue.







Yeah. Got a cuppa coffee in me too. Now I’m feeling a little better.  8)

Really like Home Free. The solo stuff by the bassist is good to- all of them Avi Kaplan, Tim Foust, and Geoff Castellucci

Bob Dylan has a cover of (Johnny Cash's) Ring of Fire that is one of my favorites.. I can't listen to any other cover:

This is more of a fun thing than a song per se. But you'll sometimes hear the compliment that some singer could sing the phonebook and make it sound good.

Well...Floor Jansen (Nightwish) was asked to sing a page from the Yellow Pages on NPO Radio2 during a studio interview/appearance. And she  managed to do just that. ;D :Thmbsup:

For a more serious recommendation, I've been doing a revisit/deep dive on a singer from the Faroe Islands whom I've followed for sometime now named Eivør Pálsdóttir. Her repertoire spans several genres ranging from Nordic folk to pop to jazz. Being an unrepentant semi-retired prog rock bassist, I've been tending towards the heavier music scene in Northern Europe more and more as time goes on. I like her spacier more ethereal songs the most although I also enjoy many of her other songs as well.

This video is from a live performance (the only way to listen to anyone IMO  8)) in 2017.
