Maggie I vote Kurt!
Hey, stop mentioning "Soul Sister" - every time I even hear the title of the song I get it stuck in my head for days!

Last night's Sufjan Stevens concert was so different than I was expecting. Not the quiet ballads with banjo, guitar. No no no. He has left that style of music behind and headed more and more towards electronic experimental stuff. I really enjoyed the show but nothing like I expected. Full on sound - two full drum sets (love drums), 3 keyboards, brass, electric guitars, laser lights, massive graphics, dressed like space men etc etc.
Watch bits of this to get an idea of how it was:

Pick this one up from about 2 minutes in if you dont have time to watch it all:

Check out the costuming (also a bit of quieter music):

SO, I didn't hear my two favourite S. S. songs, but did hear lots of others that I like.


★ Jess  | 2873 comments Yep, Kurt is the youngest in the cast. He was born in 1990. Only four years older then me :D


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Listening to Matt Nathanson, a musician who I love and would see live if he came to Aust, his music is fantastic & he is one funny guy!!
"Come on get higher"

"Falling apart"

Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Oh I have to add this video - this is an interview between Matt Nathanson & Andrew McMahon (who I'm seeing in Melb in a week!!!) and these two are very funny!!
http://www.youtube.com/user/mattnatha...


Laura | 2928 comments What is up to VEVO? I keep seeing it on YT lately.

Matt Nathason music, nice. Never heard him before. Has a really sweet voice plus it is calming. Could imagine getting some of his song attatched to 'life memories' especially 'come get higher'.


For me...

Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Sorry Laura that's just a little raw for me, suicide is such a sensitive subject. I like the beat but the words sort of scare me abit.


Laura | 2928 comments That song is just strange. I just had it on my player at the time. Whenever it comes on in my player while driving I tend to skip it.

Otherwise I've gone to a happier music: Anastacia- Wishing Well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4XdfC...


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Ha thanks that's sweet Laura, she's pretty amazing Anastacia, has her own survivor story, beating cancer, bit of an inspiration to many other women!!
Cheers:)

Laura | 2928 comments Oohhh really? Didn't know she went through cancer :/ Cowboys & Kisses is one song of hers I hold hard to my heart. A friend of mine would always sing it to me and it's just stuck, plus he'd make fun of me for liking her, yet he took the time to find the song and then sing it just to give me crap..lol <3 friends!

★ Jess  | 2873 comments Okay, so this may be ever so slightly embarrassing, but the song Ive got stuck in my head at the moment is:
'Touch-a Touch-a Touch-me', the Glee version.
Its so catchy :) And I like the simple choreography. And Matthew Morrison I like him too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F8g81...


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Thanks DJ B (hmmm not sure why it's a B but anyway:) & DJ Jess. Loved the songs tonight, Corrs takes me back, how can one family have such amazing genes-it's just not right!! Enjoyed Timberland!

Oh I missed that episode and I love Rocky Horror!:( I always seemed to be working late shifts on Wed nights last year then when I did get a Wed off they moved it to Mon! Damn... Thanks for that link Jessica. Did Mr Shu and Emma get together last year??


MandyM | 2032 comments Laura wrote: "Timberland- Throw It One Me..."


Love Timbaland! He has such creepy cool eyes. What a GREAT video. I love 'Morning After Dark"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25LBTS...


Laura | 2928 comments Timbaland is prolly one of my favorites at the moment. Just keeps putting out some great pieces. His facial expressions are amusing to watch xD

Nelly Furtado - Say It Right this is just an odd clip..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JnGBs...
Great dancing though.


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Great song DJ B!!

Lisa Does anyone listen to metal?


MandyM | 2032 comments Lisa wrote: "Does anyone listen to metal?"

Not so much these days Lisa though I'd love to hear some of your favourites!:)


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Lisa I love Within Temptation - soft metal/goth?


Laura | 2928 comments Yeah I listen to metal but I've gotta be really in the mood for it but speaking of..

Metallica- Enter Sandman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uY3LAF...

Metalica-Whisky in the jar
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw4g9E...

Bon Jovi-Wanted Dead Or Alive
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oot0Gt...


MandyM | 2032 comments Is Bon Jovi really metal? Because I wanted to put ACDC as my favourite metal band but have read that they actually hard rock and not metal.:/


Laura | 2928 comments Well...I've always wonderd it as well....I've heard Bon Jovi being classified as 'Glam Metal', if that makes a difference?
I woulda said ACDC were metal mixed in with some rock..haha


Laura | 2928 comments Just cause I've been talking about Bob The Builder with Gail.

Bob the Builder- Mambo No. 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6hNzb...
You've been warned it'll get stuck in your head.

Laura I'm purposely not going to listen to that, as it will drive me crazy for the rest of the day!!!LOL


Laura | 2928 comments hahahaha wise choice!


Shane Dougall | 278 comments So beautiful

(love the lyrics!)

Shane, I saw him live in Bendigo a couple of years ago, was a great concert, love his laid back songs!!!


MandyM | 2032 comments I know Pete Murray. He's one of the nicest guys you could meet. Very gentle soul.


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Wow Mandy, he is great isn't he. Did you know that on Melina Marchetta's most recent book The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta they used a reverse pic from his Feeler album!!


Shane Dougall | 278 comments Carmel/Mandy,
So jealous! :-)
I've always liked his laid back, aussie backyard, kinda sound. Would be great to see live!
Yes he definitely puts out a vibe of a really genuinely nice guy.


Shane Dougall | 278 comments Jillian (I'd give my heart)
- Within temptation
(another song with great lyrics!)

Welcome back Shane, haven't heard from you in a LONG time! Hope married life is treating you well.....:)


Shane Dougall | 278 comments hi Brenda :-)
THANK YOU!
Yes, married life is total bliss.
I'm extremely sad to say that today is the first day in a good while that I've been back on the forums. Just haven't had time. After our wedding and honeymoon, come home to catch up friends and family every other minute. Then back to work and everyday life - The days seems to stack up fast - It's already well into Feb. Where is the year going?
I've made a pact to be back here as much as possible, I love great book discussions!!!!

Great song Shane. Very cinematic feel. I like the orchestral chorus and ultra high vocals.


Laura | 2928 comments @Mandy- How cool!

Guns and Roses- Paradise City: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-kF-P...
This is a little different as this video clip is for a game on the ps3/xbox 360 called Burnout Paradise.

I gotta say now whenever I hear this song on the radio it makes me wanna put my car into full throttle and gun it down the roads..hahaha But of course I don't.

HPP- CHAIN
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYbZ20...
Uh, don't try to understand the lyrics..they are in english but it's kinda hard to pick up what is being sung.
I love this band though, I helped with their official webpage quite a few years ago now, on the english part of their site. Since then I've gotten messages from all the members as well..Big thrill for me :D

Head Phones President - Nowhere
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX9IiY...
Bit haunting..I actually hadn't seen the music video until tonight.

Also a big fan of Within Temptation!!! If they came to Aust I'd be first in line buying a ticket for sure!!! Thanks Shane & welcome back!!

Wow Laura that's fantastic, you clever young lady!! You know the funny thing about the first video of their's is the comments directly under the video, they are saying exactly what you said about not understanding what she's saying, it's funny:)

Laura | 2928 comments ^ Haha, yes I noticed that as well. It is pretty spot on comment. I think the songs are writen dirrectly into english instead of Japanese to english but I could be wrong. But I overal don't mind because I've been a fan of the singer since she used to perform in Sailor Moon Musicals aka Sera Myu which was YEARS ago now XD

I still get a giggle when I listen to BoA and in some of her english lyics she sings about 'spilt milk' and it really seems out of place. I think it was in her song SARA.

One song I really love out of all my Japanese music is by a group/band called Do As Infinity, the song is called HEART.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPCCbI...

I really love the guitar through it. And just the overal tune of the song. It's a rather 'old' song of theirs as well. Haven't looked up english translation though.


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Quite like that song Laura it reminds me of another song though, just sounds familiar!


Laura | 2928 comments Carmel wrote: "Quite like that song Laura it reminds me of another song though, just sounds familiar!"
Same here! Hmm..Do you know what song it reminds you of? For me it sorta sounds like an Eric Clapton rift.


Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments Don't know Laura, but there are certain parts of the song that prick up my ears that there is a previously released song that's similar, could be Eric Clapton!


Shane Dougall | 278 comments Mandy/Carmel,
I really love the sounds of gothic/rock/symphonic style with a female lead, i.e. Evanescence. Almost sounds angelic. :-)

Carmel (CarmelF) | 5479 comments I love Lior's music, saw him live in Bendigo about 2yrs ago, was a spiritual experience, particularly this song, Avinu Malkeinu - Jerusalem
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb0EBP...

Well Shane, you are very welcome whenever you can spare the time. It's so scary how quickly the time goes..it'll be Christmas before we all know it!! :)
