Now Offspring is just pure legend. The song you posted is one of my favs. This one is up there too. 

Offspring - Staring at the Sun

Lmao I hope Tom's actually in it as himself. 

"Ugghhhhh" 

"Oh no they bit Tom! Just listen to him!"

"He's fine, he always sounds like thaAAAGH" as zombie Tom claims another victim.

This song was in a movie called "Smoke" introduced me to Tom Waits and still gets me every time I hear it. 

 

I heard Tom Waits for the first time on The Walking Dead, the song was Hold On, since then I have not stopped listening to his songs

I feel like critizing Tom Waits is fine because he's such a legend. 

That said, LMAO what even is this song Joe?! It sounds like two unrehearsed drunk guys in a small eastern European village playing music on the side of the road in the middle of the day. 

I listen to some out there stuff, but this might just be a recording of Fozzy Bear and Oscar the Grouch doing an accordion duet!

 

(luv u Joe, all in good fun)

Heh, yeah - I can see that. This version is supposed to sound like some old dudes at a bar. I think it's because it's a pretty impactful moment in the movie that drew me in, the sincerity of the music is pretty powerful. 

I can see if you weren't already into Tom Waits how it would be a bit off putting. =)

lol I probably need to see it in its proper context. I'll see if I can find a copy of Smoke somewhere this weekend and check it out. 

 

I think I "get" the song a bit better from the non barroom version. The sadness isn't totally drowned out by the carnival music. 

The dichotomy between his voice and the instruments really capture the sad glance back at good times.

I particularly like this song because to me it feels something akin to the time around senior year where I was in the process of figuring out what life really is like.

This one I've associated with the anime "Love is War" for some reason and is an almost sickeningly sweet love song.

That's exactly what the song sounds like too. Funny. 

I think I have an idea of what you vibe with. Give me a little bit and I can throw some stuff your way I think you'll like.

I don't know why but this one reminds me of Malcom in the Middle a lot. This one is a 'maybe', I don't dislike it but I'm not particularly into it either.

This one feels like a combination of the band Poor Man's Poison and MCR. Though I enjoy both of those this particular song is a bit extravagant for my taste if you know what I mean.

I cringe at how she's not wearing shoes at all throughout the video. She's gonna have really dirty feet haha. I'll add this one to my spotify playlist though, it's pleasant to listen to.

Similar to Everything Is Alright I don't dislike it but not particularly into it either. I am a bit picky I guess.

This one is a good non-distracting song. I'll add it to my playlist for when i'm working on things.

Hmm.. I like the instruments but the singing is not something I am into. I enjoy being able to hum the tune of a song but it's not really possible with this song.

Actually this one is definitely my favorite. It's the kind of song that is easy to listen to when doing other things.

 

Thanks for putting this together for me. I honestly wasn't expecting to find songs I enjoyed since i'm usually really picky but i've been able to expand my spotify list a bit thanks to you.

No problem! It's hard to gauge what music someone is into by just a couple songs, but at least you found a couple ones you liked! I'm super picky myself so I know how hard it can be to find new music you like.

My first exposure to him was in Shrek2 with Little Drop of Poison. His song scared me so much until I went to Eric Powell's Myspace page for The Goon and was addicted to his song "When's it's gonna end". The song got me in as a gateway drug but I respected him completely after seeing Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus by Terry Gilliam.

Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm
I know, it's been coming for some time
When it's over, so they say
It'll rain a sunny day
I know, shining down like water...

Hell yeah Manilla Road! From Wichita, KS actually! Way to keep the theme going! 

Personal opinion: Vocals are hokey, but every 80's metal vocalist is hokey by today's standards. Instrumentals were ahead of their time though, and should be given respect if you're a metal fan.

A music thread!  How did I not see this before?--I love music! I used to consider myself a bit of a pop/rock/whatever music history scholar, but MAAAANNN...this thread is making me feel out of the loop.  I mean, most of the stuff I listen to is in English and mainstream genres, and people have heard of it.  : P

Just kidding, but still...wow.  But there are SOME songs/bands in this thread I've actually heard of.  One that leaped out at me--wait, Resette Player.  "Wall of Voodoo"?  As in THIS Wall of Voodoo?

Spoiler

 

Considering how iconic this song is to '80s fans and how freaking many New Wave compilation thingies it tends to end up on, I'm surprised I _hadn't_ heard "Tomorrow" as well until now...

Me, I've made these elaborate chronological playlists of songs I happen to like from the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s, and am currently working on a '90s one.  At the moment I'm in the early part of the decade, so I guess one song I've heard recently might be this?

Spoiler

 

I've always liked this song, really.  I like some of R.E.M.'s other stuff too.

Or possibly this, if we want to RIP UP THE DANCEFLOOR!

Spoiler

 

(lol at the comments:  "I lost 500 calories just by watching this!")  And lel, after this finished YouTube was of course like "You seem to like '90s hip-hop.  Have some Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch!"  : P  (Not that that's a bad thing.)

Mind you, those are just things I've been listening to _lately_, because I've been working on my '90s collection. I'll have to see if I can't put together playlists for the already-finished decades so y'all can laugh at my bad taste see what I like, maybe be reminded of songs you haven't thought of in forever, realise you _do_ know that one after all, and "Oh, THAT'S what that one is called!"  It'll take some time.  They're LONG collections--especially the '80s one.  I am an '80s chick at heart (music-wise, anyway) so...  

Anyway the point with these collections is that they ARE in chronological order.  It's a really cool way to listen through music history, to get a taste of what really started or happened when, and in cases where I have a bunch of songs from the _same_ year (or even month, or week) together, you can even imagine you just turned on the radio Back Then and happened upon the weekly Top 40 countdown!  Like, you're casually walking downtown one sultry summer evening, music drifts out from a transistor radio in someone's apartment window...  The collections are a pain in the butt to do and take a long time, but dammit, when done they're worth it.

And that "music evolving over time" thing is why I also love stuff like THIS so much:

Spoiler

 

That part where it transitions from black and white to colour mid-note, while they're singing a song from the time period when televisions were starting to be more colour than black and white in real life--HEART!  HEART SO MUCH!  :D   And the singing!  And those _harmonies_!

While we're on this group...I love the original version (John Lennon, yo!) of this next song too of course, but this one (and the timing of when they released it) just made me cry.  In a good way.

Spoiler

 

That part where they hold up the signs...sniff...  We NEED more stuff these days.  We totally do.

                                                      H U M A N

This isn't at all the whole scope of my musical tastes, or even my _main_ likes at all.  It's just stuff I thought of at the moment, or "have been listening to lately".  In fact, to finish this off, I'll throw in a random true-favourite song:

Spoiler

 

 

Gawd, the weird mix of stuff YouTube is gonna start recommending to me after this journey... XD

...Notorious
