Heres a grooveshark playlist I made recently. WARNING: CONTAINS (some) OLD MUSIC!!!

http://grooveshark.com/playlist/Songs+F ... V/60773253

Oh absolutely. In addition to plenty of older classics, straight piano and classical guitar in particular rank quite highly. Not to mention symphonic stuff, which I guess is technically acoustic.

...welp, I was going to be all "here's my top 10 all-time played songs, this should have some more classic stuff in it" but it doesn't, lol. At least not "classic = non-electronic elements classic."

Apparently Danny Howells is still the reigning champion, which is pretty impressive because I don't think I've listened to that album in years.

We're exceptionally guilty of this. It's not unheard of for us to play the same song for about two to three hours straight. (Which, thankfully, we both enjoy... for most people this would drive them absolutely bonkers.) Current culprit for this is VNV Nation - Illusion.

I found some awesome music this week. You know the most recent DC Universe Online commercial? I Googled it because the song was catchy, and I ended up buying the CD immediately after listening to 3 or 4 songs. It's definitely different than my usual fare, maybe just because it's so catchy. Here's my favorite track from the disc; it's a cover of The Cure's "Burn" which was on the soundtrack for The Crow (great movie, different thread).

Also, I found out Mastodon had a new CD! Long story short, it's awesome.

Guilty as well, it's even happened with another song from the same album.

Funny you should mention that one, I've had Illusion and Nemesis on loop with a couple others for a few days now.

I do that too. I have a CD in my car that is, I kid you not, 100% Caramelldansen. Unfortunately, it's also the only thing my son ever wants to listen to. :D

I really need to fix unicode fonts on this thing (or figure out what encoding the tags are using if not unicode):

Zomg, Five Finger Death Punch also has a new album! Nothing better than discovering that a band you love is releasing a new album, AND you don't have to wait for it.

Oh wow, that just filled a nice little niche in my itunes. \o/

Anyway, the past few weeks have been... eclectic. Generally I'll pick a style on my mood, but I've just been grabbing random favorite songs and chucking them into a playlist. D:

I try really hard to avoid this, after the first few times when I listened to a song so many times I didn't like feel that thrill listening to it anymore. Nowadays I "ration" songs I like, maybe let myself listen to it a few times when I first get it, then avoid listening to it more than a few times a week :X

Anyway, tonight's grooveshark playlist is pretty indulgent, lots of favourites on it, but it's saturday and we're drunk:

Can't stop listening to Puscifer. Also, I'm a huge fan of A Perfect Circle - which is probably why I like Puscifer so much.

Nooottt quite as good as War Is the Answer, but still a fun listen. Definitely has more personality than their previous albums.

I agree. War is the Answer will be their Master of Puppets, probably. Not to say that the stuff before or after isn't good, but its just hard to bring back the feel of a great album like those.

I thought it was Imaginarium too. But the video and everything shows Imaginaerum. /shrug

Though at 1:48 it sounds like she says Imaginarium.

From wikipedia

On February 23, three interviews were released on the website - one each with composer Tuomas Holopainen, director Stobe Harju, and producer Markus Selin. Holopainen revealed the origin of the project, and that Nightwish will appear as themselves in the film, with minor roles.[17] On August 31, the band announced that the album and movie had changed name from Imaginarium to Imaginaerum, to avoid mix-ups with other things entitled "Imaginarium".[18] This also led to changing the title of the track with the same name, but the song "Storytime" still include the word "imaginarium" in the lyrics.[19]
