My Top 10 songs of the Year

December 28, 2008

Okay, so MTV and all the music channels (and the only TV channels that I do watch)  are full of year end summary shows. Best group, top albums, greatest moments, review of the year, etc. Only 3 more days are left, and then we’ll need to get used to writing 2009 instead of 2008… will be hard… for sure. Anyways, let me tell you all which were the songs I liked the most from this year’s line-up. Oh, and I don’t care about MyChemicalRomance or anything else,  so don’t start flaming, this is just my opinion.

Here’s the top 10 songs which I liked/loved/masturbatedon this year:

10 – Coldplay – Violet Hill
The New album and style of Coldplay is something that I really love. Those revolution-like outfits, and the catchy tunes really made them one of my favorite bands of the year, and of course violet hill was running through my ears for weeks. Thanks Coldplay!

9 – MGMT – Time to Pretend
MGMT is an interesting band, I saw them on this year’s Sziget festival playing live, and it wasn’t that good… Time to Pretend however is a great song, it’s addictive and innovative. I just love to hear that song, however, the rest of the album is kind of crappy… but this one is worth for the 9th place.

8 – Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire
Kings of Leon is a decent band in my opinion. They make good music, but they are far to be my favorite. However, there is this Sex on Fire song. I can’t hate it, even though I tried it, but the power of the song (especially the vocals) is just too tough to fight against. Great song!

7 – Vampire Weekend – A-Punk
Everyone loves Vampire Weekend, and I have to accept that, since they do bring new colors to the scene. A-Punk is one of those simple songs you can hear for the first time and start to mumble it for hours. The Video for the song also deserves a special award, because that is fantastic too!

6 – Metallica – Day that never comes
Metallica is BACK. Nothing more needs to be told, they are simply back, and they are closer to their roots than ever. StAnger was a good album, Death Magnetic is a great album. Not The Best of their material, but it’s the Metallica we’ve been waiting for.

5 – The Killers – Human
Killers are back again with an album which is softer than anything they’ve done. Human is easily one of their best songs they’ve ever came up with. The Rest of the album is on the other hand nothing more than decent shit.

4 – Paramore – That’s what you get/Decode
Paramore gets one place here with two songs. That’s what you get is not just a song that’s on my list here for this year, but it’s an alltime favorite. Simple and catchy, and fun to hear, while decode shows the group’s harder and darker side. I just love the guitars and Hayley’s vocals in this one. Hope to see them on a live concert once next year.

3 – R.E.M. – Hollow Man
One of my best concerts this year was REM’s Sziget performance. They also played my favorite song from their new album: Hollow Man. Great song, great feeling, easy to remember. REM is a legend, and their song Hollow man shows that they still can create Greatest Hit material.

2 – Kaiser Chiefs – Never Miss a Beat
This years BEST concert for me was the Kaiser Chiefs’ performance. And that’s it. They are one of my favorite bands and Never Miss a Beat shows why exactly. Fun song, lots of jumping, and just fun fun fun. The new album is great, this song is great, KC are great!

1 – Snow Patrol – Take back the City
I have to admit, I don’t really like the other songs of Snow Patrol, but with Take back the City, they’ve created a song that has the most catchy tune of the year for me. I just can’t stop listening to this song… it deserves to be the best song of the year… for me.

68 days till Sziget festival

June 4, 2008

I already bought my tickets for the whole awesome funfesta that’ll start in a bit more than 2 months. We’ll have lots of superb material there, even I can’t believe some bands will actually be on stage… it’s okay that to call the Roskilde festival the best in Europe, but this one is way more cheap, still has a lot of great bands… and it’s ours.

Iron Maiden is just the start of the fun, we’ll have R.E.M., Sex Pistols (although I have to admit, they are not as powerful as many years ago, but it’s still SexPistols) Also, there’ll be Kaiser Chiefs, Jamiroquai, Serj Tankian (I hope he’ll do the Holiday in Cambodia cover) Flogging Molly (love that irish pubfightingskatepunkshitthing), and Pendulum Live.

old but still... punks never die...

The Wombats, Babyshambles and Alainis Morissette are also interesting on the main stage, but I’ll probably go drink beer during these performances.

And let’s not forget about Zagar, Neo and Colorstar! Woohoo

So only 68 days left… till we get all of this (and many more unlisted)

So what we’ll see/play in Guitar Hero World Tour?

June 2, 2008

The release of GH4, or to be more exact: GH World Tour is still far away, and a lot of the details are hidden behind developer’s shadows, but there are some things we can clear, and some elements we can modify into some well established rumors.

I\'ll have tu punish these for their existenz with the allmighty drumsticksWe’ve seen a teaser-trailer thing which really didn’t show much… the new Guitar was there but the details are still blured out with nasty blackness… it’ll probably have the rock band style solo mode, at least I hope they’ll have the option to play as SuperSlashStar doing some crazy solo awesomeness.

The other thing we know from the trailer, is that we’ll have Lenny Kravitz… which is awesome.

From the press release, we know that we’ll have some teen-handcutting-mayhem from Linkin Park, and some other bands… but which songs should we have? We have Drums know, so just having an awesome guitar play won’t be enough…

My suggestions are:

Van Halen – Ice Cream Man (Or the Pretty Woman song :))
Linkin Park – Given Up (I would probably go with an older one but seeing the trend, a song from the new album will be probably chosen, and I would choose this one from that, but it’ll probably be What I’ve done)
The Eagles – Hotel California (an instant karaoke hit, so this might be a good choice)
Sublime – Wrong way (cool lyrics, good drums, funky guitars… it’s a must!)

Okay, these are more solid than what’s coming now… we’ve seen a drumkit trailer too, with some prominent drummers out there: Chad Smith from RHCP, Stewart Copeland from The Police, and Travis Barker from +44 and Blink182… now their appearance might promise some really great material there. What songs should we have from them?

RHCP – Can’t Stop
The Police – Every Breath you take (also another Karaoke hit, and a must for the GHWT, which means instabuy from my side, but if we really need a better drumplay, than Don’t stand so close to me)
Blink182 – All The Small Things (yes… it’s boring, but we still love it… another instabuy reason would be this)

And there are still lots of things yet to be revealed… but if the start is already this impressive… we’re into some heavy rocking time this christmas.

Some interesting music from Transylvania

April 6, 2008

I checked out some band from Erdély (Transylvania as most people know the place) a few weeks ago, my boss shared some experience before we went out to the concert, so I was kinda excited about it. They play some kind of electro music featuring a robust arsenal of live folk instruments, which is really interesting for my taste.

pampapampapam tunderground papapam

The name of the band is Tündérgound (which can be translated as Fairyfield, but the main point is the wordfun with the underground) and their first and yet only album features 5 songs, but the average lenght of the songs is more then 10 minutes…. it’s like you start to listen to one song, and when you get to the end of it, you have the feeling that you’ve heard like 3 different stuff.

You should check some of their songs at their myspace page, they’re really cool.
