Song of the Joker - Catchiest song ever made. Bottom line is, it starts out with a kind of feminine 1950's pleasantville sewing dresses in sunlit windows in a TechniColor Barney Fife kind of town feel. It starts out like a playful and innocent fairy, then it morphs into demented Jack Nicholson in Gotham City choking people with laughing gas. A little bit of Heroism is in the song, symbolizing Joker's failed attempt to save his wife from the cruel and heartless city, and a little bit of Batman as well. Bottomline is, this song feels like "Freedom", pure and simple. Like driving on the highway in the middle of up north, going to some backwoods clown parlor full of toys and guns. And the multi-gender nature of the song is like Fuck you to rules and society, basically one of the most classic catchy songs ever made.

The Lamia - Bottom line is, I don't know how to say it, but this a musical masterpiece. Genesis started out at as a small highschool band, but with extensive musical knowledge and expertise putting them a bar above the rival prog-rock bands of their day. Expanding on the musical motifs of their contemporaries, including classical and medieval sounds, fleshing it out into a masterpiece. This songs depicts the hilarious story of a would-be victim outsmarting the Sirens planning to devour him. Genesis has the unique ability to depict a story better than any modernized Hollywood movie ever could.

Battle of the Bands - Another song about the Sirens, however this song stays true to the Viking roots, and has a very Nordic feel combined with Sugar, Spice and Death Metal. In this case less is more, as the song allows you to realize that Songs are constructed primarily by subtlety. It is not so much the idea of the notes themselves, but the way the notes are played, which creates the beauty of a song. Starts off slow but ends with an epic finish. Like all great music, it evokes an overwhelming feeling of freedom and overturning of constraints and rules. Welcome to the Show is perhaps tied with this, unfortunately, Welcome to the Show song is cutoff and interrupted near the middle, with no original outtake available, so we never get to hear the song to it's deadly finish.

Battle of Yavin - Probably the best Star Wars song ever made, which already was a good soundtrack to begin with. This song morphs between several different events and personalities, culminating into an epic finish. This is a much more complicated song and rewarding listen than the more popular Imperial March. Like the other songs it conveys an overwhelming sense of freedom.

- Gigantic - This song is very epic, and heroic at the beginning, creating many endorphins and a feeling of technologic urgency. This is probably the most epic song ever made, then there is a crescendo into darkness, followed by an uplifting spiral into the heavens.

This is garbage but it is good garbage. It is garbage in the sense that that is what it is supposed to represent - garbage. It's chords are symbolic of the lost of good days into the decay of modernity. And that is what it is so beautiful about it - it's beauty is it's garbage and itself made in garbage. And to answer his question, clearly there is, just look at the video.

A bit darker than Melee's. In some regards, Melee's is superior however Melee's drawback is it is 30 seconds shorter. Both songs are quite romantic.

This song is best summarized as... strange. Possibly the strangest thing you will ever hear. I changed this and updated it because the first song was not up to my standards. In my opinion I could not choose which Metroid had the best title theme since they are all good. So I posted the closest thing to all of them.

A beautiful song. Locust should have won.

Genesis is a quality driven band like Dire Straits.

As a kid I felt most free with this.
I also think this is first rate classical music, as much Film Music, it is Wagner, but actually god.
John Williams and Hans ZImmer both have far surpassed Wagner.

John Williams rips off Beerhoven and other classicists. This is noble. Noble borrowing, noble theft, noble blackmail, noble ignobility.

Zimmer is like an Egyptian pharaoh, or a crown fox. Sovereign of the prairie. Rocks pay homage to Rachmaninov, Zimmer pays homage to no one. But rocks.

This music encompasses both an American and a Russian soul. And the man is German.

My entry for the best better live than on record white man blues songs



20 years after I heard it I still cant get over how sick that guitar breakdown is. That is acid for you. Pure control.
And the social engineering at the end, the only rockstar who ever lived.

Lovliestly brutalized guitar in an intro



9 seconds of pure genius which then deteriorates into what Ive always experienced as pure nonsense.
Then it picks up again into this guitar orgasm and okay, it's pretty easy to listen to.



The other side of acid

Graceland is one of those albums that simply must be listened to on vinyl. It is phenomenal that way, and the CD or digital versions just sound way worse once you compare to the vinyl record.

Another one like this is Miles Davis' The Man With The Horn.
