Music that just hits you thread...

I wanna hear it uncensored without those stupid "Big boy in the morning" sounds over it.
I kept thinking that was some morning show DJ sticking his bump in there where it didn't belong, like this video was some kind of "brought to you by WPUD's Mike in the Morning show." I didn't realize it was actually part of the song.

No, it is from the DJ. I meant that I wanna hear it without the radio bump as well as without censoring words. Considering how much rap is dependent on the flow of the words, censoring in them really annoys me.

Ditto, I can't stand the radio editing, or those stupid big boy sound effects. Reminds me of my local hiphop radio station (which is, sadly, awful) who insist on playing siren noises over all of the tracks and calling it a mix.

Initial thoughts:

The opening verse (I'm going to assume this is Quavo, as I'm not familiar with him and don't recognize the voice) is awful. Overproduced, I don't like it at all.

Kanye is being ye, which, you know, is what I expect from him. I like it, but I feel like I've heard it before, I'd like to hear something new from him. Something new that doesn't require a tidal subscription.

Big Sean and 2 Chainz have really good parts, though.
 

This song is about a man who the love of his life is leaving him. But for me it's about a father saying goodbye to his daughter before she gets married. I wonder how it will be for me when that time comes.
 

Ah takes me back to garage band days. We used to jam out to Live all the time.
I love Live, but damn if Lightning Crashes was played the shit out of back in the day. I actually prefer a lot of the B-Side stuff on Throwing Copper and listen to Mental Jewelry more these days.

I had this old Panasonic 5 disc changer. It did have detachable speakers too. God damn thing had the world's dumbest disc changer though and it broke all the time.
 
I was just reminded of this thread when I heard this song on the radio again today.

Back in college, there was this guy I knew... we were "friends with benefits". I don't remember when exactly it started, but after college, whenever this song would come on, it would immediately remind me of him. Maybe not the physical descriptions (he was built more like Parks & Rec- era Chris Pratt, and I'm not "a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes") and we were more...active.. during the school year, but the sentiment of the song always takes me back.

There was a time in my life when there were only two steps of separation between myself and Bob Seger (there might still be, I just haven't talked with the guy in the middle in a long time). Most of his songs bring back memories of a much younger me's life.

I posted this on Facebook - this is an incredibly haunting song (from the Voice of Ukraine 2016):


Inna Ishchenko singing “Plyve Kacha”

Story behind the song:

"the Day of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes"
Today every Ukrainian knows the song "Пливе кача по Тисині", as it became widely known in Ukraine in 2014 during the Yevrorevolyutsiya, events that took place in Kiev. It is considered the unofficial anthem requiem for the innocent victims euromaidan activists who entered history as the "Heaven de Hundred."

Another description:

A Ukranian Folk Song Mourning The Dead of Maidan Square where 130 identified people were killed; most of them were civilian protesters in the fall and winter of 2013–2014.

Translation of the lyrics
 
So you find one weird song, and discover it's about a baby kidnapped by a graveyard keeper, taken to the woods, and had its skull crushed, and the song is written from the point of view of the infant.

 
Damn, Julio. Damn. Thanks for that. You guys are hitting my feels with this stuff.

Here's one that I listen to when down in the dumps.

 
Today is my father's birthday. I love him so much and it hurts me to see him grow old. So, this song is for him.

I love, love, love Daniel Johnston. I think he's and amazing song writer. And I just now somehow learned that Beck covered his song True Love Will Find You In The End. And I can't stop listening to it.

 
This one really speaks to my childhood/teen years growing up in a little farm town. It was the kind of place where "hick" was worn as a badge of honor - and you didn't qualify until you could flawlessly back a full-size pickup into a parking spot, buck bales of hay in the sun all day without complaining, and/or drive a tractor.


I've been watching a lot of inspirational/funny/uplifting movies lately, including Sing - which makes me tear up damn near every time at some point or another. I think Set It All Free is my favorite part right now - the world could use more angry, refuse to back down, empowerment rock right now.


I also started watching documentaries really heavily back in February/March after I realized that I'd stopped learning new things for a while, and I was having a hard time coping with it. Most of the non-politically focused ones on Netflix at the time were music documentaries, and one of the most rewatchable was Muscle Shoals - about the two recording studios down in Muscle Shoals and their effect on British rock groups, or something. The point of view kind of bounces around a lot, but it's still fun info to know. There are a lot of really iconic songs featured in the documentary, but at the end you get a look at Rick Hall at Fame Records working first with Aretha Franklin and then with Alicia Keys in "present day" (2013). Alicia's part just blew me away one day. All of my hair stood on end, massive goosebumps, teared up, the whole 9 yards. It's become my goto song when I need to remind myself that I really do have some steel in my backbone and I can stand up to my troubles.

 
I've heard that one plenty of times on SiriusXM Holly over the years, but this was the first time I saw the actual lyrics.

Kinda reminds me of Greg Lake's "I Believe In Father Christmas," in a way.

 
That's one of those songs I wish I hadn't heard so often, so I could still enjoy it.
In B4 Gas or someone reposts the Patton Oswalt rebuttal.
