Coronavirus/Quarantine Playlists
« on: March 14, 2020, 11:58:21 PM »
Hey there.  Seeing as many of us--and maybe soon most of us--will be staying home for an uncertain amount of time, I thought it in the best interests of people to keep occupied.  For me, that is often music.  I'm starting this thread for people to post up playlists of music to share with others, starting with my own set.

Mashups:  For those who don't know, a mashup is a combination of two or more songs, usually with similar chord progressions and tempos.  Oftentimes these turn out amazingly good.  Some of the best mashup artists can easily be found on YouTube: DJ Cummerbund, Bill McClintock, and Wax Audio, among others.

DJ Cummerbund -- Wish of Confusion
DJ Cummerbund -- Freaktender
DJ Faroff -- The Beatles vs. Joan Jett vs. Cypress Hill vs. House Of Pain vs. Rage Against The Machine Mashup
Bill McClintock -- Bob Marley and Billy Idol - "With a Rebel Yell, She Cried, 'Don't Give Up the Fight'"
Bill McClintock -- Van Halen and The Jackson 5 - "Mean Machine"
Wax Audio -- Sad But Superstitious (Stevie Wonder + Metallica Mashup)
Lobsterdust -- Soft Cell vs. Depeche Mode - Tainted Jesus
DJ Schmolli -- Rock Of Ages
DJ Faroff -- PSY vs Ghostbusters - Gangnam Busters

Helpful note, guys:

If you put the [ url] tags around your YouTube links, it will treat them like any other url, saving bandwidth for people who might have issues due to greater-than-normal traffic on their networks.

Example:

Code: [Select]
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbkOZTSvrHs]John Farnham's 'The Voice'[/url]
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG1NrQYXjLU]Billy Idol's 'Dancin' With Myself (social distancing, folks!)[/url]
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a01QQZyl-_I]Queen's 'Under Pressure' (aren't we all?)[/url]

Some Alt / Indie rock for quarantine.

"Birdhouse in Your Soul" by They Might Be Giants
"Forest" by twenty one pilots
"Vlad the Impaler" by Kasabian
"Never Be Alone" by The FatRat
"Too Young to Kill" by Brite Futures

And then this one... My brothers and I drove up to the game shop Saturday and they made me listen to this over and over. ...it was dreadful the third time but by the fifth, we were all singing it. Like a carful of enraged cats.
"Careless Whisper" by George Michael

Made one, but more about the titles than the song itself. I need to look it up

It flew into my mind this morning: somebody really should write a parody lyric for this classic. M-m-m-my Corona!! :)

(and the comment field for the video shows I wasn't exactly the first to see the connection)  :P

This turned up in my Youtube feed the other day - absolutely beautiful. Renée Fleming and Russian piano legend Evgeny Kissin were supposed to be on tour together this spring but the Corona epidemic cancelled it. Separated by an ocean, they recorded piano and voice for Schubert's Ave Maria, one by one on their phones and mixed the video and audio streams together to a very clean and beautiful performance.

I've seen both of these cats performing on tv and in opera livecasts to theatres, they are simply superb both of them.
