Each self explanatory.

Well at least they make depressing songs sound good.. my go-to vibe was DJ Shadow’s’Dark Days’ coz my days were truly dark, but now they ain’t.

I only came across Croosh the other day.. it was the song that got me, then I looked up the story, and found out it was a tragedy.. got punched in the back of the neck, because he did a low blow, but being punched to the back of the neck is more off limits than a low blow.. didn’t know he R. I. P. d himself though.

[“Catchy, resonant and potentially really damaging.”]

Catchy.. resonant.. but I don’t find such songs damaging, but the opposite.. uplifting music repels me, for I’ll uplift myself when I’m ready.

I wish someone would remix it into a dubstep track to get rid of the housier parts and step on the gas with the bass.

The mix of the tribal beats with the chants and the bass is simply massive, what an excellent beat.

To those suffering, such music can be cathartic. However, it's a volatile topic, even if no one's to blame.
I confess - I'm drawn to the tragic, melancholic and painful.

Go to suicide jams as teenager:

Silverchair - Emotion Sickness
https://youtu.be/g7XuQAXVuGM
-
Carissa's Weird - So You Wanna Be a Superhero

https://youtu.be/S7zHZrcHdxg
-
Machine Head - The Burning Red

https://youtu.be/rj2xMVRfVlg
-
Mudvayne - World So Cold

https://youtu.be/ZQ6D06to9Fc
-
Linkin Park - Breaking The Habit

https://youtu.be/GLQs0OrHiPY
-
Korn - Falling Away From Me

https://youtu.be/TRHsqUCuDWc
[bonus: https://youtu.be/Y__dHeLgBPM]
-
Horse The Band - Manateen

https://youtu.be/MXv81ohPooo
=
Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space

https://youtu.be/5BVZbAPz9Bs
Less about suicide, and more about the response to it - similar to the Machine Head song.
-
And lastly, a recent addition outside my teenage jams:

Purple Mountains - All My Happiness Is Gone
https://youtu.be/sGIs1NWndjU
[and a song about his mother: https://youtu.be/WRe0v_RhxWk]

Off an album that revealed itself to be his suicide note.
He did so soon after releasing it.

Yea.. it only gets good (for me) at 4.45 minutes in when the bass kicks in.. though the buildup to it is ok, it’s long.. I guess it’s just one of those tracks.

I’m not sure that that’s healthy, in being drawn to it.

I guess the naturally melancholic -of which I am one- do operate from a place of melancholia, but also from a fluctuating place of some or all of the other states, throughout the day.

Lol @ these were the lighter stuff.

Need dubstep version, stat. I'm upset that algorhythm was taken before Algorithm got to it. So there needs to be a new band: The Algorhythmics.

If you haven't been blessed with the relaxing tones of heavy metal, you're welcome for the following.

Jumping in the deep end with two cybergrind songs about heavy nihilism and death:

The Berzerker - No One Wins
https://youtu.be/5VPUyDMqa9w
-
Last Days of Humanity - A Divine Proclamation of Finishing the Present Existence
https://youtu.be/QBP8imm03Mo
Break down the title, it'll tell you enough.

-
And pulling back to melodic death metal, which is heavy but relatively accessible - and actually making the case against the above:

Dark Tranquility - Lost to Apathy
https://youtu.be/sE9Vov1ORh0

This song was insulting me. I am partial to self insults.
It asks people to care, and not throw it away to cynicism / apathy.
[the video has lyrics, so you can follow along at home!]

-
To understand these songs, I'd encourage you to look at them through the lens of anger / frustration. One is venting strong emotion, whilst also making the case for why or what they're angry about.

I interpret thing song to be about self acceptance and love. Went all about seeking, only to find the treasure within. I'm probably wrong, but grant me vices.

Mr Reasonable,

I thought that was Layne Staley - very distinctive style. Only ever listened to him in Alice In Chains.
A dude who undoubtedly sincere with his craft, channelling his inner turmoil.

i think mad season was kind of a short lived, single album rehab kind of band. you know he was dead for weeks before anyone knew and when they discovered his corpse it weighed something like less than 90lbs. the dude had some real pain, recorded a lot of it. if you haven't seen the mtv unplugged set for alice in chains, definitely give it a watch. they'd been off tour for years and they coerced him to come out and do that gig. 1st song was nutshell and he hadn't performed in a few years. wild watching that one the way he kind of came out uncomfortable and then got back into the groove over the course of the set. quality stuff for sure.

Let's see. We start with one of Ferry's classic tracks -- a remix of Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings. I loved it. It's hard not to love Adagio for Strings regardless of the shape it takes.

Next we have "Da Hool" and a track I hated. Although this is some sort of remix I never heard of. Not impressed either.

Mauro Picotto, Lange, Ayla/ATB . . . I'm aware of the existence of these tracks but I wouldn't be able to recognize them if you played them to me. Everyone knows about "9 PM" but noone knows about this remix. Kamaya Painters . . . isn't that Tiesto?

Art of Trance, "Madagascar" and Ferry Corsten's remix. To be honest, I prefer the original. Ever heard it? The combination of the rhythm and that acid sound at 4:22 is mesmerizing. In general, I enjoy everything by Art of Trance / Union Jack / whatever the guy's real name is (Simon Berry?) As an example.

Vincent De Moor . . . at this point, I think I am having enough with all this European Trance stuff. Chakra . . . don't know who that is. Kamaya Painters again. Can we hear something else please?

And just as I asked, they dropped one of my personal favorites. "Strange World" by Push. That's a bomb.

Never heard of the next track. Peran van Dijk? Who the fuck is that? Vincent de Moor again. Ayla again. Come on, people. Svendson and someone. Next. Binary Finary track I am aware of but don't care about it. Fast forward to "Voyage" by Yahel. Aware of that one, an okayish track. "Carte Blanche", a well known track, and a good one. "Join Me" by Lightforce is a track I totally forgot about. I remember liking it.

And that's it.

So from 1 to 10, how much time did I spend partying?

Here's something Eastern. I am sure people here love Eastern melodies.

This one is a bit over-sexualized in a way. 1:51 is just pure sex.

It is possible that it can be said that there exist two approaches to trance: the intellectual approach and the party approach.

The party approach looks for hitting the spot melodies like the addaggio and series of crescendoes and drops that make for a pleasant dance experience.

The intellectual approach, psytrancy or housy type stuff, is more about lounging and decanting. I'm not a fan, I believe other forms of electronic music are more suited. But I'm not angry at it.
