In addition to my inability to embed videos, I'm becoming aware of the fact I don't know even one of the song being posted here. I'll need some time to listen to all of this.

DFAF mebers have all this biodiversity, when it comes to music.

Can we expect reviews spanning at least 5 minutes each on every song?

They will all be in middle age english and full of arcane words like octogenarian. And I'll coin new music genres for this: epic black poptronic, yodel-like or Discoprunk.

Finally music I know and enjoy!

There are some attempts of syncing the tune and the film on YouTube, but none of them are neither well done nor proving that it "works". Maybe the best test is trying it oneself.

Dark Side of the Rainbow seems pretty iffy to me, this is a way better sync of Floyd music:

This song is an unbelievable mixture of soothing/pretty music, high-energy rocking the **** out, melodic guitar sections, and even a bit of funk at one point. There are no vocals (I tend to prefer this). Just pure musical genius.

It has a long, quiet intro. The song actually starts at around 1:13.

HELLO FRIEND! This song is amazing! The rest of the album, not at all.

Hm. Not sure how I feel about the Clearlight/Hypnos, but I liked the Gentle Giant!

To avoid getting too focused on rock, I'm gonna veer far left and take this thread into BLOODGRASS territory.

I need to listen to more Rush. They're pretty cool.

Anyway, I feel like I haven't posted enough Foo Fighters videos on these forums. Time to change that.

That trumped really did the song for me, otherwise not really my cup of tea. Yet interesting enough to listen through.

I think i get a Rush tattoo this year; a Star-Man on my wrist on the 21st of December, aka 21.12... in the year 2012. :) Never listened much to the the Captain or Zappa if i'm honest, but their influence is felt throughout and i respect their artistic achievements.

Well while we are at it, how bout some blues? Blind Willie Johnson!

He, and many others like him actually became essential influences to what modern music would become, without people like him things never would have been like they are today, no Stones, Cream, Elvis, Hendrix or even Beatles. Still, most people don't remember them, few give them credit, and the way those guys lived and died is just sad when looking at the things they have done for us.

He is a giant indeed, so great actually that he got chosen to be on the golden disk of Voyager 1, together with music of people such a Bach and Beethoven to represent humanity. Still, it's an achievement gone silent and once again nobody remembers.

They apparently also asked the Beatles to contribute a song for the Voyager 1 disk, and they apparently agreed, but EMI said no - i can't imagine a more fitting metaphor for the relation of music to industry than that.
