I've said some nasty things about Weeknd in the past but he did very much please me with that 80's sounding track.

Isn't that interesting. The best popular song of 2020 sounds like an 80's song.

Here's something from the Netherlands. This sounds better than the majority of US number one singles:



Nothing special but it's music at least.

My ears are pleased, Pedro.

When we're at Bach, here's one of my personal favorites. This one is full of dignity.

Exactly. Pretty good but too bad they fucked it up with that abrupt change.

Gugliami, gotta love an originalist.

I went from obssessively listening to Bach to obssessively listening to Vivaldi with some Albinoni. You realize that what Bach did was take Vivaldi and scientize him so that you could do more stuff. But the real core is still Vivaldi.



I'm sure, once I'm done obssessing, I will go running back to Bach with a smile. He took it very seriously when he said the object of music was to reach God. Vivaldi was more cynical: any excuse to celebrate life. Here's some Albinoni:



Honestly he's even better with oboes than old V.

Albinoni is what they should have blasted while they were dropping bombs in Vietnam, not Wagner.

"Going through them again, this is probably the strongest track.

https://soundcloud.com/promethean75/kill-it-part-3""

That's not one of my favorites, but since you mentioned it I'll give you a little trivial information about it.

You'll see where Fixed 'loled' about fifty some seconds into it. Right there... that last fifteen second part... was by accident. It was a pattern my fingers fell into when trying to correct another mistake. Once I recognized the pattern, I repeated it, but it was unnatural and I almost lost it.

Finally I memorized what I did there on the pads and used the pattern as a motif of sorts. In fact it's basically the same pattern used in four or five others. Three ladies, for instance. It's the sound set that's different, not the pattern. Betcha didnt recognize that.

The one that would be the most fun to develop further would be The Frustrated Hacker. That was a first take improv with nothing in mind that kinda worked itself out. I think Trent would like it. But it would be cleaned up and modified to take the little mistakes out.

The story is obvious. The future, of course, and some cyberpunk hacker dude is tryna get into the system but he keeps getting blocked and shit. So we see him in his secret underground base with the rebels crowding around him watching as he works. And it's very dim because you know how underground bases are always powered by stolen electricity or a few old generators.

It's too long though. You could cut about thirty seconds off the front.

It needs a solid sustained melody behind it. As it stands, the harmonic notes on the synth match the drum notes. It needs a melody that stands alone to hold it together.

"The track’s lyrics were inspired by the 1869 American financial crisis dubbed Black Friday. The crisis in question financially crippled many investors and ruined their lives.

Here, Steely Dan doesn’t make it abundantly clear whether the song is an attack on corporate America’s greed. However, many believe this is exactly what it is about.

In the song, the narrator appears to have been one of the numerous unfortunate people destroyed by the crisis. Owing to this, he plans leaving America and settling in Muswellbrook. Muswellbrook is a small town located in New South Wales, Australia."

^^^ ya know it doesn't matter what style these guys are playing... the song is always so perfectly done it's like a piece of engineering. You gotta really listen for all the intricate layers of nuance in their songs. Even the bland ones are perfectly polished.
