The lyrics are the actual Tolkien poems and in some songs Christopher Lee is the one who sings like in this one.

PD: I can't attach the video, don't know where to cut the link :x
Just put everything between the "watch?v=" and the first "&" following some code like "fmt=35", "hd=1" oder "list=XYZ" in between the youtube-tag (watch?v=rJ42cbnjMpM&list=FLLW4WlCwh1x33Yo9rr_50yw&feature=mh_lolz), or go on "share" and than use everything behind "http://youtu.be/". Example (and I "corrected" your link):

Dubstep, dubstep and more and more dubstep. I wish I had bigger speakers though. My AV40s are capable enough and the bass is great, but with bigger speakers I'd be able to really appreciate those sub synths (by appreciate I mean drown in sound).
Last one is from this set...

And in case you were wondering, yes, that is beyond insanely dangerous. He crashed a few weeks ago doing the same thing. "live fast, die young, leave no corpse for others to clean up!". The vultures will pick up the pieces. ;-P

Was listening to maschinengeist.org earlier while doing stuff and this came on. Had to stop what I was doing, check to see who the artist was and then get it on Youtube so I could listen to it again. Several times. Too good not to share.

Listening to the mellifluous gurgling and click-clack cacophony of cream ale fermenting; and, yes, that is a deca-nickel holding down the top! ;-P

Well, I know how to link a yootoob vid. I was hoping there was some way to post a video directly, as can be done with photos.

Thanks for the Lily Allen!

Why don't we revive the music thread? I think music tells a lot about a person.

Also I seem to have failed to participate in this thread yet, though Spharx references a song I posted in the old GH thread, back when I was still active there.

Here's a good one:

I don't listen to a lot of music so I end up looping the same YouTube video over and over most of the time when I do, this is what I've been listening to lately.

hq1ify: had to use VPN to see the video, damn German GEMA blocking all the music videos. Interesting combination of video and music.

rodtang: I listen to various music, but often only one to three albums at once. Every 3 weeks my music taste makes a 180 degree turn, and I dig out some other Albums, so from Classical and Baroque music (I love Beethoven, and the Harpsichord Suites of Händel) over Hardstyle, Folk Punk, Medieval Rock, to Drum'n'Bass, Jazz and Electroswing I like lots of music. Currently Electroswing, so I have Parov Stelar's "The Princess" and "Coco" on repeat.

Listen to the whole song, it really develops! Especially after 3:04. Originally these are two songs, but they really belong together.

And once again I'll try to revive this thread, I'm always on the lookout for new interesting music.

As I said, my taste in music often makes 180 degree turns, so until the day before yesterday I couldn't stop listening to Cuban music:
but now I've suddenly turned to post-rock/ambient/dream-pop. In other words: Sigur Rós.

Looks like we're listening to the same genre, I've been listening to a lot of Explosions in the sky lately, it is great when doing school work. I would be listening to Sigur Rós if it they didn't have lyrics (well, stuff that remind me of lyrics).

rodtang: thanks a lot, that's just absolutely amazing! I've been listening to it for 17 minutes, and I love it until now.

I don't really think of the lyrics in Sigur Rós' pieces in the sense of "lyrics". I think of it rather as another "instrument". I don't understand íslenska, and in some pieces they don't even use Icelandic, but some other, fictional language, so I don't really worry about them, but I agree, sometimes the voice can become a little bit annoying.

Well, I mostly understand Icelandic which probably is the biggest reason it is a distraction, I try to listen to the lyrics, even if they're not really lyrics.

You understand Icelandic? Cool! I really want to get to learn Nordic languages. I'm still not sure where to start though. Probably Danish, as Denmark is pretty close to where I live, but Norwegian is tempting as well. I feel like learning Icelandic would be the hardest of the Nordic languages to learn when you're German. Unless you count Finnish as a Nordic language…

I would also love to learn old norse (at least enough to be able to read the Edda in it) one day, but I doubt I will ever.
