Music With Soul....Started 14 years ago by azuza619 / toggle topic info
I dont know what to really call it but its the feeling you get from a song that makes you think, reminisce, get goose bumps, knod your head, or maybe just get the feeling that nothin can ruin your day. To me those songs are the ones where you can see the artist intensions right through the music. Where the song has substance and a culture behind it. Not like radio music where its just do this and do that and you get this and that.
Name Off a Few Songs in here where you get up when you down, or calm down when you hot, just something to get you into a positive move...
1. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - T.R.O.Y.
2. Juggaknots - Clear Blue Skys
3. PUTS - The Breakdown
4. Thes One - Noonen - This song made my stop playing Halo 2 and waking up at noon (literally) to play again. I now wake up at 7 take my bro to skool make breakfast then go dig for some records, then go to skool.
- That day i woke up at 7 i went diggin and found the cadddyshack record, what a trip
TROY is a definite but Home by Mission: (produced by Thes One) is amazing, in fact that whole damn 12"
other than PUTS-related material tracks that I love / make me shiver:
Ozzy Osbourne - I Just Want You (forget what you think, just hear this track)
Ed OG + Da Bulldogs - Love Comes and Goes
The Pixies - Silver
Lostprophets - Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja
Mike Viner's Incredible Bongo Band - Apache (or the original)
At the Drive-In - One Armed Scissor
Bob Dylan - Hurricane
The WHOLE Spirited Away soundtrack (amazing film)
Harry J Allstars - Liquidator (that classic 60s)
The Stranglers - Peaches (you seen Sexy Beast?)
that latest Bloc Party single Banquet (rereleased) is amazing
