  • Song: Stevie Nicks - Bella Donna
  • Genre: Rock
  • Description: "Bella Donna is a term of endearment I use and the title is about making a lot of decisions in my life, making a change based on the turmoil in my soul. You get to a certain age where you want to slow down, be quieter. The title song was basically a warning to myself and a question to others. I’m thirty-three years old, and my life has been very up and down in the last six years."

  • (@) Surgeon
  • Song: Lana Del Rey - Venice Bitch
  • Genre: Psychedelic Rock / Soft Rock
  • Description: I've always been a huge Lana fan, ever since Born To Die came out, but I genuinely think this is one of most beautiful songs that I've ever heard from her. Not only is the overall arrangement out of this world, but the thing that really attracts me in this song is the nostalgic feel about it, especially in the hook, where you can notice that she raises the key a little bit. It's like she's stripping away from that Lana Del Rey persona (not too much, since I do believe she took a lot of her real life traits to create Lana Del Rey, its definitely not completely fake), who's interested in older men, and is very depressed and sad about the current state of the world and her life in general, to a more hopeful and happy individual. You can even hear this change in Lust For Life actually ("Out of the black, into the blue" - Get Free), but I do feel like she decided to fully embrace her real self in here and Mariners Apartment Complex. It's like she's allowing a more mature Lizzy Grant to come out, and I love that. It's definitely not your regular 3 minute pop song with 2 or 3 verses and a catchy hook, and I get that some people might find 9 minutes to be a little too much, but I honestly think that as long as someone isn't brainwashed into only listening radio stuff, and allows themselves to dive into different types of stuff, the length of a song shouldn't have that much importance, so I'd encourage anyone to give this a listen regardless.

  • Song: Lil Wayne - Mona Lisa
  • Genre: Hip Hop
  • Description: I've been waiting for this album for like the past 5 years of my life and I think it was worth it. I love this project and this song has been teased on leaked tracklists n shit for eons now and it was 100% worth it. Kendrick and Wayne both lose their minds on this record.

Theme: Remixes

  • (#) Arrested
  • Song: Kyla La Grange - Cut Your Teeth (Kygo Remix)
  • Genre: Alternative/Indie/Dance
  • Description: I absolutely love this song, I heard this remix some time ago and I just recently re-discovered the song and it is such a feel good song, it always brings a smile to my face while listening to it, and I recommend it to anyone!

  • Song: Mariah Carey - Fantasy (Remix) ft. ODB
  • Genre: Pop/Hip Hop
  • Description: This is, not only, one of the best songs of the 90s (in my very humble and unbiased opinion obviously), but also one of the most influential and important tracks in modern music's history, being the first song to feature both a popstar and a rapper, creating a huge trend for years to come, especially in our day and age where it's practically a standard in mainstream music. Mariah and ODB were at the top of their game at the time, she already had a multitude of hits across the globe, sold millions of records at the time, and was already being recognized as one of the greatest vocalists of all time, while Wu-Tang had already released the best and most influential hip hop album at the time couple years back too. A lot of people seem to forget that Mariah is not just about Christmas, she actually played a huge part in how the music industry is shaped nowadays, from her amazing vocal abilities who inspired many singers like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, Justin Bieber, just to name a few, and even inspired the creation of talent shows that tried to find another version of herself (see: American Idol, X Factor, etc), to her extremely rebellious ideas at the time (she was also one of the first female artists to try to create a label of her own, escaping from her own controlling and repressing label - Sony, and is credited for helping to make, not only hip hop, but also rnb part of mainstream music, which wasn't even thought about in the early 90s). This collaboration between these two music icons created a movement that is still present today, and that should never be forgotten. (viv note: RIP ODB)

I was biding my time so as to not make it look like a double-post e_e) (s/o Losprideviva)

- (supremeoverlord) Joyverse

  • Song: Iced Earth - God of Thunder
  • Genre: Heavy Metal, Cover
  • Description: Originally by KISS, Iced Earth has some solid ass covers but the reason I chose God of Thunder was that they took in something good and made it waaay better. Also, adding to the remix theme from above.

  • Song: Slayer - Crionics
  • Genre: FUCKING SLAYER, Thrash Metal
  • Description: Underrated pick from their first album. What's more intriguing is they have riff very akin to one from Rush's 2112 Overture.

  • Song: Dream Theather - The Dance of Eternity / (live performance)
  • Genre: Progressive Metal, Instrumental
  • Description: *ahem* Since we were on the topic of Rush, I decided not to link Rush; rather I linked Dream Theater. It's a fun song and you should definitely see the live link I put up showing all their efforts going in.

  • Song: Opeth - Demon of the Fall
  • Genre: Technical Death Metal
  • Description: I'm one of those people who got saddened by the fact that Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth's frontman) dropped his deathly growls for mellower vocals; his mixing of the two was a fun thing to have. And, now I'm glad I haven't dropped these dudes away for eternity cuz this live video rocks!

  • Song: Black Sabbath - The Mob Rules
  • Genre: Heavy Metal
  • Description: Solid piece of work from the Dio era of Black Sabbath. A must-listen for anyone looking to get into metal.

  • (%) icazah (HaroldIcaza)
  • Song: KKB - Only Acting
  • Genre: Synthpop
  • Description: favourite song of KKB latest album and also the best of their EP of the same name, a different twist to kkb bubblegum pop that turned out to be a success, Sarah voice mixes really well into what KKB early projects used to be.



  • (@) 1Surgeon (Surgeon)
  • Song: Madonna - Love Profussion
  • Genre: Electronic/Folk
  • Description: Out of all the Madonna records I've listened to, American Life is probably the one that most fascinates me, because not only is the sound incredibly ahead of its time (simple guitar chords under a high-tempo electronic beat, and a relatively unexplored kind of production style - the glitch edit), but also the overall theme and lyrical content goes against most literally everything her image stood up to in the 80s/90s. American Life is extremely sarcastic, in the way that it pokes fun at people for judging her and believing that they know who the real Madonna is based on her actions "on-stage". It's also a political and a religious statement, and talks about how empty and meaningless the so called "American Dream" and the overall American culture really is. In her mind, the best person to point out how all of the things that American culture is so obsessed about (money, fame, recognition, power etc) means nothing to a person's path to real happiness is someone who has all of these things, someone who is at the actual top of their industry, the best of the best, but still has never been truly happy, not because of those materialistic and narcissistic desires, at least. Each song talks about a very specific subject, but Love Profusion is the one that resonates the most with me, because it's about the never-ending nothingness of this life, and how almost everything we do will eventually fade into obscurity and insignificance. It's like she's saying that she is the actual personification of how much of a failure and a lie the "American Dream" is, and this is especially evident in the hook ("I got you under my skin"). However, despite all of this, she found out one thing in all of this negative energy and confusion, someone that makes her feel good, alive, and truly happy - her then husband Guy Ritchie, the person this song is dedicated to. It's a very loving and heartfelt message, masked by a huge cloud full with adversity, and that's what makes it one of my favorite all-around Madonna tracks.

  • Song: T.I. - Seasons
  • Genre: Hip Hop
  • Description: This album is pretty dope, I especially like Dave Chappelle's involvement in it. Either way this is a super hard intro, when the drums come in at the end it's amazing.
