The Best of Youtube - Music

Recommended Posts

last two for today:

 

a faster tempo version of this was released a while ago but you can never get it on youtube unfortunately, the original still holds its own though:

 

From: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHTErRzlUI4

 

 

some of the music to the Harry Potter films is very good, but tends to work in segments (as per its usage in the film) rather than standalone tracks, i love the start to this one though:

Now you've done it! Lalo Schifrin links in to all sorts of stuff, 007, Dirty Harry, Mission Impossible etc..................

 

Oddly it's brought us full circle. Here's a remix I've just stumbled upon.

saw them a few times - the best gig was in Liverpool, complete with real polythene carrying bag men in the audience!

 

this is one of them video's which works on many different levels - and a classic underated 90's tune.....

Quality, it put one or two smiles on my face... :rolleyes:

 

I never caught up with Mr Smith, but your description sounds about right, I bet that was an experience...!

 

I saw these boys in my local boozer 19 years ago, which was quality, the landlord knows DG.

Here's one of my favourite bands of all time.

...pixies....

 

 

never saw the pixies, but always liked their stuff and the breeders as well. i saw the wedding present a few times, they were one of those indie bands that would tour the whole country from top to bottom so you were sure to see them at some point (like the house of love during the same late 80s / early 90s period). I met Grapper as he was selling the merchandise prior to the gig!

 

this is one of my favs. from the WP (along with 'why are you being....'), i'm sure you've heard it but this is the only non-live version i can find on yt, so ignore the visual content!!!

I've only got POD by the breeders, but it's a great first album, I had a listen to it tonight and thought this was worth sharing.

 

From:

 

Bloody hell, The house of love. I'm glad you mentioned them, as I would never have posted anything by them, being fairly certain no one had heard of them... :) I couldn't decide whether to play Shine On or Destroy the Heart as I'm writing this... Happy memories. There are so many good bands around this time, Ride, That Petrol Emotion, The Smiths, The Ultra Vivid Machine, The LAs, Sonic Youth and the list goes on... It's hard not to jump around too much on this thread.

 

Good WP track BTW, hopefully here's another.

Enjoy Thursday night, it should be good if that link is anything to go by. I'm a massive Beatles and Unkle fan, so they both hit the spot. I especially liked the Isaac Hayes tune, very cool and added to my favourites I might add.

 

You've linked me into a song I've wanted to post for a while, thanks.

Radio head link.

 

oof! I was blown away when I first heard this.

 

 

 

I especially liked the Isaac Hayes tune

 

If you've not looked at his back catalogue I'd recommend 'Black Moses' and if you can find it 'To be continued .....' . My personal favourite ...................

This is off the 'To be continued' album which runs continuously and that was off side one which blends seemlessly into this ............

Any other name is a classic. I've spent the last hour looking for the track that uses this as a sample, I kept expecting a nice rolling hardhouse beat to kick in. I thought it was a Sasha & Digweed tune that sampled it on one of their Nothern Exposure CD's but I couldn't find it... Never mind I got to listen to lots of good music whilst I was looking. :)

 

Also deserving a mention .............

The tune's Jakkata .............. American Beauty.

I've heard some Isaac Hayes, but not enough. You need a lot of time on your hands to catch up with an artist like this. The first song is a corker.

I found that, but it wasn't the same beat rolling over the top, perhaps it's a remix. I'll keep looking... :)
