Describe Your Taste In Music Using 7 Songs
michemagius last edited by
You've done it with games, now do it with songs! I thought about allowing you folks to use whole albums or bands but that would have been too easy. I bumped it up from 5 to 7 so that it's not too tough. They don't necessarily have to be your favorite songs, just ones that represent your tastes.
I'll start things off
Brown Eyed Girls-Sixth Sense
Shoji Meguro (Persona 4)-Heaven
Megumi Hayashibara (Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu)-Usarahi Shinjuu
Earth, Wind, & Fire-September
Red Velvet-Russian Roulette
Primary ft. Paloalto and Hwasa-Mileage (Got in my first car accident while listening to this song so to be honest I haven't listened to it in a while, but I still love it.)
I'll give anything funky a shot. My motto in life is that "everything is better with a strong bass line". I was a jazz singer for 8 years so naturally, I love jazz. But I'm also a big fan of super bright pop music. I'm also a sucker for a good power anthem.

I think the extra two entries actually make this next level hard. It also doesn't help that I listen to a lot of soundtracks as well as music, and picking just one Daft Punk song is going to be hell... but whatever. Maybe I'll make two lists. But for now, here's my slice o' that normie noise:
"The Good Times are Killing Me" by Modest Mouse (Good News for People Who Love Bad News)
"Streamline" by System of Down (Steal This Album)
"Lose Yourself to Dance" by Daft Punk (Random Access Memory)
"The Ocean" by The Bravery (The Sun and the Moon)
"The Train" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (This Unruly Mess I've Made)
"Stop" by Justice (Woman)
"Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Green Day (American Idiot)
That... was difficult. I definitely tend toward much longer, heavier on lyrics, slower, and more dramatic songs. That said, this list doesn't have many incredibly long songs like most of Daft Punk's work, "White Privilege II," and "Jesus of Suburbia." As critics have stated, those are most often multiple songs paired together in sequence — which I love — but is more the domain of soundtracks, as opposed to individual songs, which are more dependent on their lyrics and melodies standing alone. Anyway, especially picking out of System of a Down, Green Day, Daft Punk, Macklemore, and Modest Mouse's catalogues was difficult. Some of those albums have just a lot of songs that I like just as much as each other (with a couple grating songs as as exceptions).

Honestly, this was brutal - I could've used 70 slots. At the end of the day though, I'm pretty happy with the range these seven are able to cover.
"Styrofoam Boots/It's All Nice on Ice, Alright" - Modest Mouse
"Battery Kinzie" - Fleet Foxes
"All I Want" - LCD Soundsystem
"First Breath After Coma" - Explosions In The Sky
"Ramblin' Man" - The Allman Brothers Band
"Runaway" - Kanye West
"Doing it Right" - The Go! Team

Interesting one, I just cobbled this up quickly but I think it is a fair representation of the things I ussually listen to
Amesouers - Les Ruches Malades
(I suppose this one can serve in representation of the Doom metal, which I listen to a lot, even if it not really in the genere)

"I'm a believer" - Smash Mouth
"Holding out for a Hero" - Jennifer Saunders

"What I like about you - Romantiks
"All Star" - Smash Mouth
"Barracunda" - Fergie

"You won't know" brand new
"Pensicolla" manchester orchestra
"Minor threat" minor threat
"Walking is still honest" against me
"Arcarsenal" At the drive in
"All fuzzed out" Beach Slang
"Rejoice" Julian Baker
I'm not sure how to do the fancy links but I'm pretty happy with that list. It's hard because I had to cut some of my favorite songs in order to represent more variety.

"Spanish Sahara" - Foals
I'm a fan of a good build-up and this song perfectly displays that. The release of sound towards the end is absolutely cathartic.
"Knives Out" - Radiohead
My favorite song by my favorite band. Like a lot of their work, it has a certain mood of melancholy surrounding the entire work, yet a strong rhythm and Yorke's haunting vocals weave their way through the song. This video was directed by Michel Gondry, who would later go on to create my favorite film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Lots of favorites in this one!
"Frontier Psychiatrist" - The Avalanches
I'm a huge fan of anyone who is able to take samples and do interesting things with them and the debut album for The Avalanches excels in this field. There's so many moods this song explores, using a lot of clips that really shouldn't work in a song, yet they're brilliant here.
"Yet Again" - Grizzly Bear
This band just keeps getting better and I feel this is a great showcase for their skills. Sad and dreamy, yet it has one of the best endings to a song I've ever encountered, an absolute psychedelic freak-out.
"Slumlord" - Neon Indian
So despite the previous entries, I'm not only listening to depressing music, I've got quite a fondness for synth-work and anything that incorporates the feeling of the 80s. The chorus here is probably the most catchy out of anything I'm sharing here yet it reverts right back to that dirty, dirty synth.
"Creep in a T-Shirt"- Portugal. The Man
Danger Mouse is an incredible producer that turns everything he touches into gold. I was a little skeptical when I heard he was working with these guys but he brought out their best work to date. PTM started embracing their funkier side and the horns here are stellar, along with the backing vocals. His mixing is so crisp sounding, everything just pops.
"Fireworks" - Animal Collective
If I had to describe euphoria, I would instead stop trying to use words and play this song instead. Back when Animal Collective wasn't aggressively trying to be offputting, this gem came out and creates an atmosphere unlike any other I've visited. Sonic, ethereal, and Avey Tare's vocals really add passion to the whole piece.

@ib0show Also, when posting, there is a button above the textfield where you can type, between strikethrough and image buttons, which can be used to create the link thing faster, especially if you highlight the word(s) you want to make into a link

Mein Herz brennt - Rammstein
Could've said: Whispers in the Dark - Skillet
It shows off really well how rock/metal can be combined with calssic instruments. I like the slower paced metal songs with deep vocal rather than faster with growling etc.
Harder, better, faster, stronger - Daft Punk
Could've said: Other Daft Punk songs
I like Daft Punk
Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park
Could've said: Numb, Easier to Run, Waiting for the End - all by Linkin Park
Almost ten years ago I rediscovered Linkin Park, realizing how much I liked them, and are the band I've been the most fan of so far. They lead me deeper into hard rock and metal. Breaking the habit is one of the more mellow, not so angry songs that I like to listen to when I am down
Krølla 50-lapp y'all - Karpe Diem
Could've said: Kontaktannonser - Klovner i Kamp
Had to put some old Norwegian hiphop on here.
The Real Slim Shady - Eminem
Could've said: Other Eminem Songs
I like Eminem
John Wayne - Lady Gaga
Could've said: Sia, Katy Perry
I've realized that I don't hate pop as I told used to tell myself
Uptown Funk - Bruno Mars
Could've said: Happy - Pharrel, Get Lucky - Daft Punk
Songs that make me smile and just enjoy life
Though that said, I don't listen to music that often...
