Pentatonix and Lindsey Stirling's cover of "Radioactive"

Infinitely better then the official release and actually makes me want to make a Fallout Tribute Video set to this song.

And of course, the song that never ceases to put a smile on my face...

But Youtube Judy's Milk, and you'll see what I was playing.
/The song is innocent.  It's totally about milk, like in a store, but people gotta put stuff in the video so kids and the easily offended can't watch it. Grr.
I totally know what you mean.  Madison Avenue et al have a crazy notion of what sells 100% of the time--even when it don't.  I'm all for Freedom and Liberty but every once in a while I like living in a world not informed by Beavis & Butthead sensibilities, though they have their place too.

Didn't notice Trip's song under the pic. Reminded me that Tarzan was my son's first go-to-the-movies-movie. The soundtrack was so damn loud he cried and we had to leave.
  I've not seen this Tarzan movie yet, but I imagine it is as fun and joyous as Disney's Hercules.  Yeah, the movie houses often crank the audio so loud that for the past several years I often bring a pair of earplugs and will use them during the very loudest scenes--and ironically almost never miss a line of dialogue--and can enjoy ear-splitting explosions at the muted level.   ;)

I was gonna post a URL to the Desiderata for what I am presently listening to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsoET6xcapE but while this version is groovy I am not certain it qualifies as music. (I'd have sworn there was a music version in my youth, but that may be mere wishful thinking.... )  So, my brain had little trouble coming up with a song I enjoy and you might as well IF you are in the mood for Alan Parsons Project Justin Hayward "Forever Autumn" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsCdlX-5UjE inspired by CoH and snowflakes dancing outside my window May 3rd, which will be yet another record in this prairie town.

Iron Maiden duet on harps
Thanks the URL, Floride; I have a friend who'll love this!  Naturally I had to check out the twins' harp version of "Stairway to Heaven" (a lovely interpretation) but what I am currently rocking out to is there electric harp version of the Dr. Who theme:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R061gfebd7Q

And now I am listening to this ("The Tale of Sir Robin" by Monty Python)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4SJ0xR2_bQ  (And, no, you probably don't want to know how I got  there.)   ;D

(Yup, I still have the upper respiratory crud but I am getting better!  *cues theme music*  "Soon this viral visitor shall be a thing of the past.")  Meanwhile for reasons not worth explaining I found myself listening to this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDJ0jFFkvjc  "Call Me" by Blondie.   8)

Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

Today I'm listening to the opening track from season 3 of ReBoot, a James-Bond-y little number called Firewall.

Mmmmmm, ReBoot. Om nom nom nom nom.

Yes... I am geek, hear me roar. <playsfx "ChewbaccaAngry.ogg">

Under the heading of I Never Claimed To Be Normal here is what I am presently listening to and loving.  Note that while I think this musical performance is not quite as awe-inspiring as Marilyn Monroe was in Bus Stop it is nearly that good.

Here s the URL to "Stayin' Alive" as performed by Jo Stafford (posing as torch singer Darlene Edwards).  EXTREME CAUTION URGED!!!!!  Listening to this may cause damage without opportunity to roll a saving throw.  Additionally, listening to this may cause hilarity to ensue, again possibly without the opportunity to resist effects.

Allegory - Murray Attaway
Thanks!  I quite enjoyed that!  :)   Reminds me a bit of Jethro Tull and a few other musicians from days of yore!    :D

I'm bad and that's good.
I'll never be good and that's not bad.
There's no one I'd rather be than me.

...unless I could be Batman, of course. Everybody wants to be Batman.

Monster Magnet - 19 Witches
Kewl, Nos!   8)

I bet you can see why the title alone reminded me of this old song:  "The Twelve Witches" by Steeleye Span (apparently from 1976 even)
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-YsyizOnxE

Also, I guess this is as good a thread as any to say, my fellow Titan comrades, that it seems very likely I am going to need to be taking a break from Titan Network forums because, well, I now have more on my plate than is comfortable and, well, I gotta take care of business and personal matters and all that.

Keep the AWESOME alive and going!  I'll be back when I can as soon as I can but realistically this Real LifeTM may be chewing seriously into my play time on Titan for somewhere between weeks and months.   /em holdtorch

Yeah that Real Life thing can be a serious nuisance sometimes. I keep waiting for a new patch so I can upgrade. No luck yet, but one day!

Considering what thread we're in, I think a little ditty is only fitting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OKNJLcnGh4

JR, me lad, do whatcha gotta do. Seeya when you get back! :) *big wave*
