The OFFICIAL song in your head thread!

Ever hear one of those songs that is just so great or moving you can't get it out of your noggin?

Well, I've had three in the past week, so I figured what the hell... lets start a thread. Old or new, if there is a song you just discovered that is killing you, no matter what the genre... throw it in here.

If you're like me and listen to pretty much everything, before you know it you'll have an awesome playlist of off-the-beaten-path music!

If you can find a link to the song or an applicable myspace, youtube or whatever, throw it in here too.

Sly and the Family Stone - Wanna Take You Higher
http://youtube.com/results?search_qu...y+stone+higher (great videos here, also there is a live version on the famed Woodstock documentary)

Nonpoint - Alive and Kicking
http://www.myspace.com/nonpoint

Dustin Kensrue - I Believe
http://myspace.com/dustinkensrue

Bring 'em on, I'll be listening to every one.

Dir en Grey - DRAIN AWAY

They don't sound nearly as mean (or silly) as they look:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be6Xi-eKeak

BTW, for those who are confused as to why they look like gothic zombies, this band and many others in Japan follow a popular visual theme called "Visual Kei".

More info:

HYDE - THE OTHER SIDE
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUC11b6fDGA

Long Live X-Japan

John, YES! That Hyde song is pretty damn good. Dir en Grey is good too, but that dude can't sing worth a poop. Its OK, I can't either.

Learning about visual kei was cool too... basically the Japanese glam rock movement! Crazy!

Now I'm watching my first X Japan performance. Their drummer is sick!

FUGGEN EH!

ROCK ON BROTHA!

I've been very disenchanted with English music in recent years, save for a few bands that are very much pop rock rather than traditional rock.

I fell in love with a lot of the indie bands coming out of the US and Europe the last few years and it reminded me of what X-Japan sounded like during their prime.

That brought me back to J-Rock and I discovered a bunch of bands that produced some great music.

if you're interested about J-Rock, check out the following bands:

X-JAPAN (forefathers of visuel kei, perhaps my favourite J-Rock band)
L-arc-en-ciel
HYDE (lead of L-arc)
LUNA SEA
Malice Mizer (old school VK)
Dir en Grey
GACKT (little more on the poppy side, but he's got a few token rock songs)
Sex Machineguns

There's too many to list, but there's a good start.

Recommend some English bands now will ya?

No way!

The people who made DDR probably sampled some X Japan music, but X Japan is far from DDR music.

..REALLY FAR

Go pick up Elton's album "Tumbleweed Connection." Get that one stuck in your head instead. No, seriously, that album is on my top 10 all time list fo' sho'. Also contains what I consider to this day to be the best song ever written by modern man... a little diddy called "Talking Old Soldiers."

Reminds me of so many old American TV series theme songs... especially Gilligan's theme. The guy singing it is awesome. He looks so excited.

I misread that as "Taking Old Soldiers"... I know Elton John has a thing for guys, but old soldiers? weird fetish!
