Taking a page out of the book about ganking, I spontaneously decided to start doing these music madness posts on Fridays instead of not posting at all. I’m sure there are plenty of people who don’t have the time or desire to read long drawn out posts on a Friday, but there are probably a few that appreciate a procrastination opportunity even on the last day of the week. I’ll (probably) be ordering these by music genres, which means that they will be very hit & miss, especially because I listen to so many genres. Because music is an integral part of my life (even the gaming one), I can assure you the entries will be completely dependant on the current inspiration and despite being semi-ordered they will still be very much impromptu.
I’ll start off with something that almost everyone can enjoy, a bit of vocal magnificence. It all started with me discovering a great tune, which made me remember other great vocal tunes I knew about and enticed me to go enjoy them again.
This is the tune – Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap. It might be an old song but I’ve never heard it until now (expect for the stolen part) and it is quite something.
I actually don’t care much for the retail version of this next song and I don’t really listen to this artist normally, but I think that the “less is more” version I stumbled upon is excellent – Run Run Run by Natasha Bedingfield. (This video actually shows her singing but it won’t load outside of the US.)
Next is a band I adore – When The Sun Hits by The Gathering (originally by Slowdive). Although the cover is quite “rocky”, I love it because of the vocals. Anneke van Giersbergen is amazing.
And a bonus, Africa by Perpetuum Jazzile (originally by Toto). Amazing a cappella rendition.
That’s it for this post, enjoy.
