There's a swedish youtube? Haha

I use a site where you enter the link to a youtube clip and it converts it to a mp3-file in a few seconds which it then lets you download. Fast and simple. I would never use things like itunes or spotify, because of my irrational hatred of pretty much everything new and/or popular.

I do however buy the CD's of my favorite band.

I used a site like that once. It took so long I found the MP3 elsewhere while waiting and just downloaded it. And it spammed my PC with popups and such in a generally annoying manner. But I could see how a less-annoying version could work well.

The clip in question was one I had legally on audiocassette but wanted in mp3 format. It's worth a listen:

Yes, long before there was Autotune the News or even Autotune, there was The Invisible Man, a guy who edited together clips from various speeches by President George H.W. Bush to create one of the best things ever.

Yep, about a quarter of my CD's are classical, mostly German and Russian composers. Big fan of Beethoven, but also Carl Orff, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, and, yes, Holst.




The first Mars movement is clearly my favorite, but Holst's entire "The Planets" suite is pretty darn awesome.

I'm not too strongly into all the classical style music, but I like orchestral. Big difference really. Holst's suites in Eb and F are pretty fun to play too. I like the kind of orchestral stuff that strongly tells a story, or sets up a background. That's why i like movie music, and videogame music. John Williams does this excellently, and has composed the music for so many legendary movies. You can listen to the music, and imagine that movie, and a scene in that particular movie. The Jurassic Park theme is probably one of the best examples. And of course, not many composers make the theme for 2 olympics, and come up with worldwide recognised themes, like jaws

Apple fanboy alert :p

The only thing I like about apple is the iOS devices, short of the iPad, which is pretty much just a waste of money. I had an iPod touch 4, and I've now got an iPhone 4s, but I only like them cause I jailbreak it. The only good thing about apple (at least in australia) is their instore service. No questions asked, they replaced my phone for me on the spot
Getting a mac I think is a complete waste of money, when you can get a pc with similar specs for much less, with a larger variety of suppliers than apple. Vista was complete shit, but windows 7 is pretty damn good

Are you talking about computer operating systems for phones? Shocked

I hate all these new space phones. Thank god for classic nokias. As long as I can text and call it's good enough, anything else is a chore. Except for maybe a basic camera. A flashlight is also a huge plus.

Yeah, the new fancy phones that are practically computers... Internet, games, camera, flashlight, calls, text, video calls... The whole lot Wink is a bit of overkill, but it's definitely helpful for my study and everything

My beard and its independent ecosystem approve of this song.

My favorite Aussie band of late is still TISM. Here's a selection of their many songs about Aussie politics.

Never heard of them sw... I gotta say that while the beards are good (they've actually got musical talent as well as being Funny and inventive), they're not the best... I still stand by cat empire being my favourite Australian band (and all time)... Let's see, some that was probably more popular over seas... ACDC?

So... We all know (and possibly despise most of) American music... But I am quite interested what kind of stuff Sweden and European countries put out

Europe has all the good music.

Most good electronic music comes from the Netherlands. Most good metal bands come from Sweden or other european countries. I don't know that much about more mainstream music but freaking ABBA came from Sweden...

So what on earth do you listen to down there? Very Happy

If the only music you get there is a band that plays freaking jazz then I feel like you'd like american music (not to mention you're missing out big time)

We get pretty much all the international music, just we don't produce a massive amount of artists that go worldwide (although I'm pretty much oblivious to most of the "popular" stuff these days). I tend to not listen to mainstream stuff that often, so I get to miss out on all the crap the world needs to deal with

Apparently I went to high school with "The First Lady of House Music".



I remember seeing her sing La Habanera from "Carmen" at the Sulzer Library Auditorium. That was transcendent. This house music isn't nearly as good, but at least it shows how good electronic music can be when it's paired with a classically-trained singer who can really, really SING.

Maybe it's just me but I feel like that was a very poor song and I can't really comment on how a good singer adds to it when she doesn't really get to showcase it.

Eh, I posted that one more for the video than for the actual music. Try this one:



Or this one:


Or even this one:


To be honest, not my kind of music either. Just was amused to find that someone I went to high school with is apparently semi-famous in the music scene. Still not as cool as my sister going to school with and being friends with the lead actor from "Cloverfield".

Yea, definitely not my cup of tea. It just seems very generic...


By actor I hope you mean actress because I don't think anyone in that movie apart from Lizzy Caplan has any recognition whatsoever. Still a bit cool, but it's a small world Smile
