Recommendations - Songs

I'm always up for new ideas (despite having 200 albums on my 'want list').

Kings of Convenience - Sing Softly to Me
If the sun is shining (I guess that's everywhere except the east coast of the USA), this is a great summer track. Sweet guitars & vocals. Very well put together.

i wasn't sure where to post this...


but the one song that never fails to bring me to my knees is Taps, especially when played by "echo" bulglers (spell check) or with the bag pipes. that is a very emtionally intense song.

Your standard nu-metal issue (with a slight twist). Nice guitars, throttling pace, but I can't get past the throat-blistered vocals (I presume by a well-tattooed dude the size of an ape).

Thanks zootm, I'll stick with the wall of noise with some audible vocals (Curve - Coast Is Clear, or Six By Seven - My Life is an Accident).

I may listen to midi surf 1 more time before zapping it.

the reason the vocals are inaudible is that they're in japanese. the only english part is "i'm stoked this fine day". i wouldn't dismiss mad capsule markets so quickly, they're not really a nu-metal band at all... they seem to have picked up influences from many, many kinds of music, and have a very diverse sound. that was a kinda nu-metally song, though.

thought up some new ones:

Shakespeare's Sister "Stay" and "The Trouble with Andre"
The Cult "Edie" and "She Sells Sactuary"
and an oldie, Dusty Springfield "Son of a Preacher Man" that songs rules, too bad Dr. Pepper ruined it with a commercial.

The World In My Eyes cover was pretty much the only reason I bought the DM Tribute album. The version of 'Never Let Me Down Again' by the Smashing Pumpkins was surprising, very good. But I never listen to that album by now, in fact, I don't like it too much when The Cure cover other bands.
