How about a 'little' Yes:

Yes - "Heart of the Sunrise"

Great intro that will forever on now always remind me of the strip bar scene from the movie "Buffalo 66"
Totally! I have every pre-80s Yes vinyl and loved that flick--left that impression with me as well.

Also, gj on King C. Good stuff!

This video has been viewed over 9 millions times so I doubt I'm breaking any news here but this is the song/dance lady that inspired the nightelf dance in WoW:

Alizee

If you want to cut to the chase, skip to 3:20!

Only good thing to come out of WoW is me watching this video. One of the few good French things as well.

Never heard of Alizee but I assume she's hugely popular in parts of he world. Her legs remind me more of Lineage II than WoW!

Edit: on a sidenote, I happened to use up a bottle of whipped cream tonight so I did a whipit (sucked the last lungful or nitrous oxide out of the can), making this video twice as good! :idea:

Was catching up on episodes of Coverville (a podcast that specializes in covers of various songs) and heard this. It is Last Town Chorus covering David Bowie's Modern Love. Very different, but cool take on the song.

Indians - Look Up to the Sky

You can buy it used for $0.01. This song and one other were used in the movie Kalifornia. There are several good songs on the album.
When I was younger, I used to think that the world was doing it to me and that the world owes me some thing…When you're a teeny bopper, that's what you think. I'm 40 now, I don't think that anymore, because I found out it doesn't f--king work. One has to go through that. For the people who even bother to go through that, most assholes just accept what it is anyway and get on with it." - John Lennon

I don't know much about jazz but this girl's voice sounds awesome to me:

Nikki Yanofsky - Ella...Of Thee I Swing

I downloaded the Live album above and it's pretty amazing.

I think she's 15 when singing the live album above.


Not sure if 13 in this one below. Either way, impressive for a kid!

Airmail Special

Above is from French TV show. She's one of "those" people in Canada. From the interview afterwards, it looks like English is first language but knows French well.

More of a Live performance:

Live recording of Malvina Reynolds. Born in 1900. Lyrics are simple and profound.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sooNNv9 ... re=related

From the same episode. Pete Seeger covering Melvina's song, Little Boxes. (if you watched Weeds you'll recognize it). It may sound cheesy to some of us, but the lyrics are actually pretty strong for the times.

My best friend from 1st grade is now a fucking brilliant violinist. Here's a clip of him doing electric violin for the band he's in called Handful of Lovin'. I don't think the rest of the band is even close to his level of talent, but just listen for his violin.

Check out the clip. The first instrument you hear is him plucking away at electric violin. He's classically trained, but he can also use the instrument like a lead guitarist might.

Yeah it is. The whole soundtrack to Once is friggin amazing.

Glen Hansard and his costar from the film are also in a band called The Swell Season. I'm not sure if the movie or band came first, but their first album shares some songs with the film soundtrack.

This is, in my mind, one of their best songs:
