    I'm a sucker for soundtracks, and Bloodborne's soundtrack is excellent.

    I'll throw in my own music into the mix too :3 I hope somebody here likes them:

    This is my happy song


    This is my sad song


    This is my lonely song

    This is my not lonely anymore song


    I take this song with me when I look back,

    I take this song with me when I look forward


    This song is my fantasy


    this song is my nightmare (but I like listening to it)

    This is a song I hum to myself when I need quiet


    this is my song when I want to be loud. there's no real reason why.


    This is my favorite wake-up song


    This and this are my songs of choice before bed.

    In addition, I also have a modest playlist of songs as I find them called "Dark Lounge music" which is good rainy day, sometimes gloomy music. it helps me write.

    One of my favorite songs, maybe because it fits my favorite class so well
    Van Canto - The Bardcall

    And another very cool song by Van Canto, which one of my GMs once used as inspiration for a small part of his campaign
    It's also one of the few true acapella songs of the band... (I think the only other is their cover of "The Bard's Song")
    Van Canto - Last night of the kings

    My musical addiction lately has been The Pretty Reckless. I heard Take Me Down on the radio randomly one day, looked up the song, and fell in love. It's not like they're original or anything, but they have a certain old-school feel to them that sets them apart from other modern rock bands. Plus I just think it's really cool that the singer, Taylor Momsen, had a successful career as an actress but then just decided one day "%&* it, I'd rather be a rock star" and just up and walked away from acting to start a band.

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...N_mO4XixLqmS0j

    Anyway... That's good quality for rap. I know that isn't saying much, but it's far and away better than the rest of the genre... And that isn't saying much either. It's actually GOOD. That's what I'm saying. Whatever. So... Yeah. Enjoy.

    (...I'm going to go take a shower. Maybe light myself on fire. ****ing rap music. I don't know why I feel such a instinctive, visceral repulsion to rap music... Actually, yes I do. But this isn't that kind of rap. It's not 50-Cent, or Eminem or DMX. It's pretty much a different genre.)
    Every time I hear Aesop Rock mentioned, I immediately think of this mashup done on the excellent Ocarina of Rhyme. Team Teamwork has tons of rap songs set to video game music, but that one is easily my favorite.

    This week I've been in a dark and melancholy mood, and I've been listening to a lot of:

    Die Moritat von Mackie Messer

    Seeräuber Jenny

    Both by Bertolt Brecht & Kurt Weill from "The Threepenny Opera",

    and

    Battle on the Ice

    by Sergei Prokofiev

    To try and brighten my mood I tried to listen to

    Police On My Back

    by The Equals (I first heard the Clash's cover version long ago) and while that helped a bit, it was the proto-Funk of their

    Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys

    that lifted my funk, and now I have

    Friday on My Mind

    I finally found out that classical music song that starts very slow and build up to a very fast pace is called "In the Hall of the Mountain King" I have been searching it for years...

    One of the most famous pieces of classical music. Shame its name - or composer - isn't more well known.

    I blame Looney Tunes, personally. All those years watching an animated rabbit doing silly stuff to some amazing classical music, and kids have no idea they're listening to, like... the first movement of Winter from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons or whatever.


    And in that spirit, here's a couple of the more commonly mis-characterised classical pieces:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Another Looney Tunes classic, the William Tell Overture. Written by Gioachino Rossini (I had to look up his first name, heh). The entire movement is much longer, and quite beautiful. These days, used as "horse-riding" music like in the The Lone Ranger and whatnot.

    Hopefully we all know that the Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner was written as part of the Ring Cycle opera. It's actually an interlude, a prologue to the third movement of the second cycle.

    The Entry of the Gladiators was written by Julius Fucik as a military march. Yeah. Instead of its more recent purpose as go-to circus music.

    The Flight of the Bumblebee, written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, is another interlude for an opera - not just a piece of music written to be played over some sped-up video.
    Awesome fremetar by wxdruid.

    From the discomfort of truth there is only one refuge and that is ignorance. I do not need to be comfortable, and I will not take refuge. I demand to *know*.

    I don't see anything wrong with "What's Opera, Doc?" popularizing "Ride of the Valkyries." Sure, not everyone is going to cross over to the genre, but sharing music with people is part of the goal. Time is finite, so there are going to be limits to other people's experience with genres other than their preferred. I recall the host of Fresh Air admitting while she interviewed an orchestra conductor that was her introduction to Wagner. The Al Hirt jazz trumpet improvisation of "Flight of the Bumblebee" used for The Green Hornet was how I first heard that song. Sure, you can end up with negative associations; fortunately, I associated that song more with the concept of a superhero than the stereotypes in the TV series. The MTV parody episode of Tiny Toon Adventures was my introduction to They Might Be Giants. Their music video for Particle Man holds up better than Istanbul, I think.

    Time to share something else. Since TMBG came up, something from The Else. "Climbing the Walls"

    I do like me some 19th and 20th century orchestral music (Dvořák, Williams, Holst, Orff etc.), but maybe the orchestral music I most enjoy is the film music of Bernard Herrmann, so I'm not exactly "highbrow".

    Anyway here's a small sample:


    Herrmann

    Bah, that 19th century music and its pianos. REAL music is made using an instrument which doesn't allow for gradation. Harpsichords for life.

    In all seriousness, I do quite like some harpsichord pieces. Here's a four hands version of Michiru Yamane's "Garibaldi Temple"

    Michael Giacchino's soundtrack for Doctor Strange also had some harpischord. Charles Scott IV created this remix for the end credits.

    My obsession with Bloodborne continues. Today, it's about just how much lore they hid in the lyrics to the various tracks. Get ready for some Ecclesiastical Latin!

    Latin:
    Horror fidei
    Perdet iter,

    Rete, sanguine male
    prae istas honos
    sanguine sancte, praetor!

    English:
    Horror of faith will lose the way, the allies will be lost, the holy blood!

    A web of sick blood, our honor is to protect the holy blood!

    This is the boss theme of two high-ranking members of the healing church clergy who transformed into horrible beasts by imbibing the church's holy blood. These lyrics are your first hint that maybe, just maybe, the blood might be what's turning people into beasts. Which of course it totally is, meaning the church is responsible for this entire mess.

    English:

    Slandered! If you surrender, I give you peace. Silver water in the darkness.

    Hail, with blood! Redeem the mocker from himself, you depart, and your pleb departs safety.

    Farewell, Farewell, poisoned in the dark water.

    Slandered If you surrender, I give you peace. Poisoned silver water in the darkness

    Hail, with blood. Redeem the mocker from himself, you depart, and your pleb departs safety.

    Farewell, farewell, poisoned in the dark water.

    Slandered and silver water, poisoned and silver water.

    Blood!

    Blood!

    And here we have more healing church blood-worship. This is the theme to Yahar'Gul, the unseen village. Here, we find out the church has been abducting people, and in this track we get some clue as to why. It seems the church knew their blood was poisoned and was giving it out anyway, and Yahar'Gul is how they were covering it up. Fittingly, the School of Mensis is located in Yahar'Gul, and they're the ones harboring the great one Mergo. Curiously, they've also abducted a member of the choir... It seems there's a little schism in the church. Gee, I wonder what about.

    Cursed be the night, the blood of the cursed!

    Oh hunter, blessed saint! A good death is a blessing. Home becomes an eternal night, gone is the rich blood!

    *MUSIC PICKS UP BECAUSE THIS BOSS IS SO ****ING COOL*

    Okay before I comment on the lore: Best boss, right here. Terrifying intro, badass mid-boss cinematic, two enormously distinct stages that have a lore justification, the holy moonlight sword, the soundtrack is AWESOME, his body looks like a Cyriak cartoon and it's both disgusting and awe-inspiring, and DID I MENTION THE SWORD?

    Click here to watch a guy get WRECKED by this boss: https://youtu.be/syinEWWgbns

    Oh, yeah, the lore. That's what I'm supposed to be doing here. This track reaffirms that Ludwig was a great hunter (first hunter of the church, specifically), and that his fame dissipated after his passing. But it also hints at the nature of the Hunter's Nightmare, an eternal night and an eternal hunt, where Ludwig is trapped. It reflects on the hunt and how it drives hunters to become beasts, remember Ludwig has spent decades trapped in an endless hunt, and tells him that death is a mercy at this point. (Or rather, "a good death is a blessing".)

    After the fight, you then have the option to hear from his severed head (no, really) about the Holy Moonlight Sword, where he hints at the sword's true nature. "Good hunter, have you seen the thread of light? Just a hair, a fleeting thing, yet I clung to it, steeped as I was in the stench of blood and beasts. I never wanted to know, what it really was. Really, I didn't.", says he before he loses his mind. This dialogue, the sword and the guidance rune hint that Ludwig was manipulated by the Moon Presence.

    Further, if you approach his head dressed as a member of the church, he gives a different set of lore. "Good Hunter of the Church, have you seen the light? Are my Church Hunters the honorable spartans I hoped they would be?" And here you have two heartbreaking options.

    You tell him yes, to which he replies "Ah, good...that is a relief to know I did not suffer such denigration for nothing. Thank you kindly. Now I may sleep in peace. Even in this darkest of nights, I see...the moonlight...". You can also tell him no, to which he replies "Oh, my. Just as I feared. Then a beast-possessed degenerate was I, as my detractors made eminently clear. Does the nightmare never end?", and he loses his mind.

    The part that makes it heartbreaking is that the latter answer is the truth. The Healing Church is corrupt and evil, they are knowingly destroying Yharnam, the beastly curse is their fault and for a while they've known it was and haven't stopped. They've covered it up, they've killed those who discovered the truth, and they've sacrificed the city for the vain and selfish desire of ascension. If you tell him that, he will lose his mind in despair, and the only way to allow him to die in peace is to lie to him.

    This boss is only the first boss of the DLC, and he's a very well developed character for how little you see of him.

    This track speaks for itself, and is a basic summary of Laurence's role in the plot. Master Willem taught him to fear the blood of the Great Ones, and the corruption it instills in beasts such as ourselves. "Ours eyes are yet to open, fear the old blood." He ignored this warning, and so our tragedy commences.

    Laurence went on to become first vicar of the Healing Church. He was corrupted by the blood and founded a religion around it. Blood worship, the deception of blood healing, these were his means of convincing people to join his cult. This, and the promise of more.

    The holy blood betrayed and destroyed those that imbibed it, even him. As Willem warned him, the blood was never a promise of salvation. It revealed a truth that struck fear into them and eventually corrupted them. In the end, the church accepted this. They had been deceived and poisoned, and in despair they went along with it anyway.

    Laurence is the source of all the horrors of the game. This track details how and why he did what he did, well-meaning fool that he was. How, in the end, his people realised their fault but nevertheless finished the tragedy they started. Let it never be said that a sympathetic villain is not a true villain. This man created great horrors in his life, but he believed that in doing so he was finding a relationship between humanity and the great ones. He was seeking a means to bring together man and god, and he thought he had found it. What he found was proof of the opposite, the eldritch truth. There is no god within mankind, humans are beasts, animals. They will never and can never be anything more.

    https://youtu.be/uZWpYGuqsHI

    Latin:
    Venator
    Ah mi summus venata
    Anima tor feci so vre re mal
    Venare insidiosus
    Mira tenebrarum
    Hic sic scitis miseriae aeterna

    English:
    Hunter, ah, supreme I hunted! I did it to cleanse the soul from evil. An insidious hunt, a wonderful darkness, but this way I knew eternal misery.

    And so Bloodborne continues the long-running Souls theme of killing distraught old men to sad music. This time, it's killing your mentor on a field of asphodels to an emotional orchestral score. I know he was a hunter, and that he bought into the healing church and its insanity, but he wasn't in a position to know any better. And seeing him in-game as he is, trapped in the dream and unable to escape, waiting for his dead mentors to come save him... Yeah.

    Pantera. I know I've praised them before, but they are still my favourite band. They're a straight injection of testosterone in the myringa, they're probably the most masculine metal band in the history of heavy metal. The raw emotion boils off of their every word, and it varies from rage to joy to despair to pain to pride. No album better encapsulates this than Vulgar Display of Power.

    Listen to this, the intro to the album. Listen to Anselmo growl out words, listen to the lyrics. This track is about the harnessing of anger to productive ends, the power to focus, force and bend until what's in front of you meets your needs.

    This is a song about Anselmo harnessing his past hardships and deriving motivation from it.

    Pantera made it big. This track is dedicated to their "friends" who suddenly hated them once they were famous. This is a "take that" to those who undermined him and whispered his faults the moment he was in a better position than them. This song is an over five minute long condemnation of jealousy and betrayal.

    This track condemns the skewed priorities and questionable morals of [CENSORED FOR BEING POLITICAL]. It's not hard to figure out where they fall. "The truth in right and wrong, the boundaries of the law; You seem to miss the point. Arresting for a joint? You seem to wonder why hundreds of people die. You're writing tickets man, my mom got jumped they ran."

    This has got to be the most pain-ridden metal track since "Snuff" (though actually, it came before Snuff).


    Eh, screw it, I've got to go. I'll finish the album later, I didn't even get to Regular People (the "stop imitating me to look tough" song). Or maybe I won't.

    I love their music (and some from Down as well), but it's a constant struggle to separate my enjoyment of the music from my distaste for Phil Anselmo as a person.

    I mean, I can still like a band when the singer's a jerk. The Smashing Pumpkins and Iced Earth are two of my favorite bands, though both Billy Corgan and Jon Schaffer seem like jerks and control freaks who drive away talented band members with their "my way or the highway" attitudes. But some of the things Phil has said over the years make me think he's just a truly awful person.


    Anyway, that's off-topic. Here's my contribution to the thread today. Someone made a duet version of War Pigs containing vocals from both Ozzy and Dio. It's glorious. I'm pretty sure it's edited together from two live recordings instead of being recorded for real, but just hearing them together in the same song and imagining what seeing that on stage would have been like is enough to give me chills.

    So I am currently getting addicted to Tuvan Throat Singing. This is the video I am listening to right now. There is a comment in the comment section that lists the starting point of songs, so you can go back and forth to your favourites.

    Let's start with a bit of Nephew:
    "007 is Also Gonna Die"

    "A Wannabe Darth Vader"

    "Igen og Igen"

    "Klokken 25"

    And in case you were wondering, they don't make much more sense when singing in Danish either.

    I'm a big Rush fan. This is one of my favorite Rush songs. It always puts me in a happy place. My favorite portion is between the 4:30 and 8:30 marks.

    I find this song so depressing I can't even listen to it anymore.

    Uh, I like Nephew. Their lyrics are crazy in either language, though.

    Here's some more Danish music (though some of it has English lyrics).

    Masselinjen by Kliche

    I find this song really meditative. The tune stays fairly simple and there's only 1 repeated line of lyrics.

    The Balcony by The Rumour Said Fire

    A really relaxing and catchy folk-pop song. This is pretty much the quintessential summer tune for me.

    Moi Caprice - The Art of Kissing Properly

    Dreamlike pop music.

    Analogik - Farligt Monster

    A completely bonkers, mostly instrumental track by a band that describes their style as a mix of polka, jazz, Balkan music, sea shanty, tango, hip hop and electronica. They made some of the music for Battleblock Theater as well, I think.

    I'm really enjoying this, it's wonderfully quirky.

    An old one, I remembered this song ever since visiting one of my friends and hearing his father listen to it when I was a kid. I didn't find it again until a few years ago.

    I've posted different songs by these bands before, but since they're all from the island of Ireland, for Saint Patrick's day:

    Stiff Little Fingers - Nobody's Hero

    Them - Mystic Eyes and Gloria

    The Undertones - My Perfect Cousin
