This has more of a jazz feel to it. A lot of people are feeling it. Not really my style though.

They both start freestyling...Tom green is a funny guy

The freestyle Gift of Gab spits is just crazy


Re: The Music Thread

Anyone else here into Nina Hagen?  I am pretty obsessed with her.  I'd like to know what the more spiritually minded folk think of her approach to music.  I have a really weird connection to her daemon or whatever you wish to call it, and we pretty much share the same beliefs.  She is a highly sensitive brand of Pisces (born March 11 - a particularly powerful day to be born on as far as psychic abilities and intuition go)  Some of her music has a strong spiritual message (even bordering on preachy) but she's been quite a musical chameleon throughout the years without ever losing her identity.  When I hear her voice in action, I literally feel that she's sending a message from the unseen - not in anything logical like words, but in terms of creative expression.  "Weird" springs to mind, but she is a visionary... goes with the territory.  In her prime, she had over four octaves - and she exhausted her capabilities to operatic heights and demonic gutteral lows.  Mix in an alarming sense of humor and you have a great example of a transcendental singer.  Hard to describe what she can do - as she says, "it's beyond words"... she also has personal tales of being visited by UFOs.  She's all around out-there, which I consider a product of her sensitivity - drug experimentation at an earlier age certainly amplified her vision and creativity to unspeakable levels.  Pretty much a love-her-or-hate-her type...

Born in East Berlin, her musical background was in classical (opera) though she had gone touring with jazz musicians after dropping out of high school and then went on to become the "mother of punk" - her first proper album (Nina Hagen Band - Nina Hagen Band) was an art-punk freakout with totally bizarre energy.  It's evident how brilliant she is here.  But she went on to so many other things, including new wave, pop, experimental and old standards.  I've managed to find some good clips of the space punk diva.

Here she is on Merv Griffin (!) with Don Rickles (!!!) doing a "Beat It" version of Carmen's "La'mour" - and talking about chakras/universal god identity and various other utterances that do nothing else but alienate her from the crowd (in the funniest way)

Here she is explaining her spiritual beliefs

Here are some random performances that showcase her freakish vocal range



(New York, New York - classic!)

GREAT COVER of Ziggy Stardust!

Love her to bits.  Embracing Godhood!

Re: The Music Thread

"The Only One" by Evanescence

When they all come crashing down, midflight,
You know you're not the only one.
When they're so alone they find a back door out of life.
You know you're not the only one.

We're all grieving,
Lost and bleeding.

All our lives,
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader.
All your lies,
I'm not believing.
Heaven shine a light down on me.

So afraid to open your eyes, hypnotized.
You know you're not the only one
Never understood this life.
And you're right, I don't deserve
But you know I'm not the only one.

We're all grieving,
Lost and bleeding.

All our lives,
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader.
All your lies,
I'm not believing.
Heaven shine a light down on me.

Don't look down,
Don't look into the eyes of the world beneath you.
Don't look down, you'll fall down,
You'll become their sacrifice.

Right or wrong.
Can't hold onto the fear that I'm lost without you.
If I can't feel, I'm not mine,
I'm not real.

All our lives,
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader.
All your lies,
I'm not believing,
Heaven shine a light down on me.

Re: The Music Thread

Hey can i quickly say that this is probably my favourite thread on NR. I can't really say how music effects me except to say that I cry when I hear an exceptional song because for a while I would not exchange the experience of the song for anything. Or something like that.

Some good'uns I've found.

I think heaven is where you're a though form or ehtereal spirit free from the body with an mp3 with your favourite 10000 songs on and batteries that never expire and and mp3 that never breaks.


It's probably easier to go here: http://rateyourmusic.com/lists/list_vie … ;start=400 then find the songs on youtube.

I gotta get me a LP player and massive speakers, some marijuana and play my way through all the greatest songs ever made. Happy days.

Re: The Music Thread

Was doing some reading up on Mp3.. did you know development began in 1979?

Yeah- working on digital while 8Tracks were still hot shit- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mp3
Incredible amounts of info, I found it fascinatin'

In my bit of experience, techno tracks come out with less noticeable artifacts than conventional music, at comparable resolution, 128 or higher. So I am still torn whether to do an mp3 player at all.
Equipment is important to the audiophile, but lately I am almost willing to sacrifice some sound quality for convenience and capacity. And I am $%^&(# tired of fumbling with discs in the car.

I may be turning into a damn pod. sad

I picked up a pair of Sony 40mm driver home headphones recently (I have neighbors) but when they're not around I light up my old Rectilinears. I think they're 30+ years old.. they still sound better than Bose towers, even with a mid 80's Denon preamp.

I don't have any of that newfangled surround crap... Just give me WATTS


Happy to have been a part

Re: The Music Thread

I'm on another one of my drunken music hunts and here's the plunder.

Wait, I have to thank Montalk for the John Farnham tip. I haven't heard that song in years. Totally forgot about it.

Onto the spoils!

I know someone mentioned 2pac earlier in the thread. And indeed that man needs to be knighted for his good work because I found this gem amongst the shit that is modern rap:


Makes me wish I was black.

Oh one more good'un.


Peace all.

Cool, thanks for these.

A friend e-mailed me to let me know Merle Haggard has been mentioned in mind-control research as being a handler.     As I'm looking at this, I recall there is an entire section on the "Free Your Brain" site called There is no 'Going Back Home.'   This makes me wonder, because the title of the song I just posted above is "Sing Me Back Home."    Hmmm ...

Re: The Music Thread

Oh I just found this Cocteau Twins video, still love them, and it's got butterflies, reminded me, it's been used here before as a symbol of transformation, ascension, etc...



Re: The Music Thread

Thank you Sinaptix. I was just thinking about the Cocteau twins yesterday. I lost one of there cd's years ago, I'm actually considering   replacing it now, (it'll be the first cd I've bought in 10 years).

I've always loved music that can bring a tear to my eye.
