imfallen_angel: Not sure what you mean? plays fine for me...


This video contains content from Sony ATV Publishing and EMI, one or more of whom have blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

Also, that wasn't so much a comment about your choice in music (or the fandom of Corey Hart) but the ridiculous copyright fascists that won't let the music of even minor artists (again, not Corey Hart) slip through their fingers. Youtube is great for finding smaller artists to watch for in your town, to promote esoteric genres (gypsy punk is awesome) and otherwise get the word out. Sony and their ilk are just shooting themselves in a fanatical need to control so you have to pay for every note in their collection.
So to offend.
End Threadjack.

CrazyCracka420: sboyle1020: CrazyCracka420: Atmosphere - Lovelife

http://youtu.be/rNm45DDojTo

Wow, I would have never expected anyone to request Atmosphere on FARK.  Slug's my favorite rapper...

So how about..."Angelface"

Haven't heard any of his "new" music.  Didn't really catch on to Seven's Travels or If Life Gives You Lemons.  Just not a big fan of the "sound", so I can't really even give the songs an honest opinion.

Grew up in the Twin Cities, so I've been a big fan of Atmos for about 15 years, well at least up until God Loves Ugly...


Yea it went a little downhill...my favorite youtube clip ever is him and Eyedea (RIP) on freestyling on the Sway/Tech morning show for like 8 minutes

I'm not a super big fan of the last one I heard, which was Family Sign? I think? But Slug gets non-stop respeck, regardless.

...Surprised I haven't seen the Jeff Buckley version of Hallelujah.

Or that 24 hour Flaming Lips song.

2013-06-21 02:32:51 PM
I've thought of some more movie themes:

Main Theme and "Now We Are Free" from Gladiator

Almost anything from Braveheart, particularly "Gift of a Thistle", "Sons of Scotland", and "Freedom/The Execution/Bannockburn"

Main Theme from The Rocketeer

Main Theme, "Liftoff" and "Reentry" from Apollo 13

Other songs I've also thought about:

A Kind of Magic - Queen

The Art of Dying - George Harrison

Begin the Begin - REM

Only In Dreams - Weezer

Mr. Eugenides: 370 posts in and no one has mentioned Tubthumping by Chumbawumba?


"I get knocked down, but I get up again"

My guess is people would play that if they're planning to come back as a zombie.

Cremation, w/ ashes to be discreetly spread @ the incredibly beautiful Spring Grove Cemetery/ Arboretum in Cincinnati. For music, a breeze in the trees and birds in the sky. Sounds easy, right?
Meanwhile, back in southern IL my heavily Xian fundie kin will likely host a memorial/ prayer service- against my wishes. Can't stop them, really.

studs up: but the ridiculous copyright fascists that won't let the music of even minor artists (again, not Corey Hart) slip through their fingers.


Oh agreed... but still odd that it's blocked for you?

Here's another link.. see if that works for you.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcPr2-ipfa4

I`m guessing that the other one that`s blocked for you.. it`s someone that shouldn't have posted it but the copyright kicks in only in some countries.

First time I see it like this.

Now I just need an Anatomist, 3 mechanical engineers that specialize in robotics, a mortician, and a choreographer with a flair for the dramatic to make THE FUNNIEST FUNERAL EVER.

Is there really any answer but Sir-Mix-Alot - Baby Got Back?

I laugh just thinking of my family sitting through that and trying to keep a straight face.
 
2013-06-21 04:00:46 PM
A nod to Bith Set Me Up ... right on about the Braveheart soundtrack
for me I don't know of any one awesome song... I'm pretty sentimental though:

"Nella Fantasia" / Gabriel's Oboe
"Here I am Lord" Hymn ( for my wife )
The Beatles, "Across the Universe" ( Anthology 2 version )
The Beatles, "The End"

When everyone has arrived at the parlor, they shut the doors and strike up "The Rains of Castamere".
 
2013-06-21 04:07:32 PM

Pud: I'm on the highway to hell by AC/DC


 not skipping from page 1  to 9 so I will assume Fifteenthed
 
2013-06-21 04:09:42 PM
"Drink to the Dead" by Clutch, preferably the live/acoustic version but either works
"The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers (props to the earlier farkers that said this)
A bunch of other sad old country/bluegrass songs.

After the Eulogy my best friend and brothers all know whoever does the eulogy does this:
"Shark wanted everyone to smile and laugh one last time" and then they play the Mario dying sound and no lives remaining theme.  I'd pick one of my favorite arcade games but I know everyone SHOULD know the mario theme and I can already kind of see the reluctant smiles and head shakes that would go on.

And think of me every so often
Have loser's day parade for all my friends
Drink up life like a river
Til the pizza man delivers
Smile and know I loved ya til the end


...good stuff.
