Fight, fight, fight!

It's time to release my YouTube playlist. No, I didn't upload any of them, and I should warn you that not all of the songs are fully screened (as in the sense that I didn't analyze some lyrics that deeply--yet, however), still, take a peek.

If you like opera, country, or trickling stream music, then you should stay away. This playlist is for people who like music that gets them ready for war. :-)

The nearer the top on my list, the better.

Opera, country, or trickling stream music??? Are you intentionally excluding your sister???? :-P

duva said...

Wow, that was a LONG list :P

Lots of stuff from Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions, did you see them?

Also, some suggestions; you know fighting never quite was my thing but here you are ;)

Rage Against the Machine actually advocate a totally different war than you do, but I'd say the concept of "waking up" and starting to fight back applies very much to your attitude as well ;) (and I'm pretty sure the lyrics are "clean" enough for you). You might also recognize it from the end of the first Matrix movie.

And, secondly, here's a song by Dream Theater (I think it's inspired by the war in Iraq)

Duva: Yes, indeed I did see them (on tv). Eventually I will review them. I have issues of course, but the chateau and the Smith fights.... :-O

Ah yes, that song. The beginning was very fitting for Neo's big exit, but I don't know what the rest sounds like much. (What kind of war does he advocate, if you know? Just out of curiosity.)

Thanks for the links, and thanks for looking--I actually didn't think anyone would. :-P

I didn't like Reloaded and Revolutions that much to be fair either, but a lot of eyecandy in the fights of course - as you said.

Rage Against the Machine are extremely leftist and I dare say pretty anti-American - too extreme for my taste but I do think some of their music is pretty good... (like this song) It does have a very unique sound anyway.

By the way, I had never heard of Posthumus before, and I must say that was some really awesome music (despite the mis-spelt name ;)). Seems pretty hard to get around here but I'll definitely try.

The Warrior said...

Ah, thank you, I see. :-)

As to E.S. Posthumus, they are one of my favorites. I only have their first album, Unearthed, but have not heard any of their newer Cartographer. They are excellent; of course, I linked my own favorites, but they have slower songs that have much to offer as well. They also have a few nice singles.

Can you buy from Amazon where you live? You can buy them there my friend. That's what I did.

Amazon definitely works, it's just that foreign shipping can be cruel sometimes ;) But since they don't seem to be available from my usual stores (id est, Swedish ones) that's what I'll have to do...

The Warrior said...

But, Amazon has free shipping over $25?

How about iTunes? Or Amazon MP3?

Spencer

duva said...

Free shipping in the US that is ;) (unless there's been a very recent change) Well, I'm going to have to do an order from there in the soon future anyway.

The Warrior said...

iTunes? Or are you like me and want the hard copy??
