Day 19: Symphony of Science – A Glorious Dawn

I know, I know. It’s been forever since I started this. …But I got stuck on “S’” and only now have I figured out that my beloved “Symphony of Science” totally starts with S. Now, a word of caution for this video. I know that many people have an issue with the use of Autotune (and in general I agree) and this video uses same. So, if you are one of those you may wish to skip this one. If not, I hope that you enjoy Symphony of Science – A Glorious Dawn:

Day 18: The Republic Tigers

…And we’re back, with The Republic Tigers singing Buildings and Mountains. You can blame my sister for introducing me to this one.

Alert the Media!

So, I may have mentioned that my cousin’s band got signed, yeah? They’ve released a free song from the upcoming album for everyone to listen to…and I LOVED it.
Obviously, this means that I must point the way for you all to hear it as well.

(Pssst! Go here)

Day 16: Professor Elemental

How to even describe this song for you all? A steampunk rap song about tea? Hmmm…well, Professor Elemental does edge further into steampunk territory with his most recent album. How about just a catchy song about the love of tea as sung by a bloke in a pith helmet? How about both? However you want to describe it, here is Professor Elemental singing Cup of Brown Joy.

Day 15: Ocean is Theory

Full Disclosure: The lead singer of Ocean is Theory is my cousin. So, when I first heard that he had a band, I said to myself, “Fiiiiiine. I’ll give it a listen.” …But much to my delight, I thought they were great. Ocean is Theory is a Christian rock band (is the term “Alternative” still in use? ‘Cause they sound like good old alt rock to me.) and they recently signed with Razor and Tie (Squee!), first full length album due out this Summer. Obviously, I must celebrate this. Here is the video (shot a couple of years ago now) for More Than Conquerors.

Day 14: Napoleon XIV

Napoleon XIV is a big part of my High School music remembrances. (I had a friend who owned the whole album. There are so many good songs on it.) You may have heard of him through Doctor Demento or perhaps from a friend. This is the most famous of his songs. Napoleon XIV – They’re Coming to Take me Away Hahaaaaaaa.

Day 13: Men Without Hats

There were so very many “M”s to choose from, but in the end I had to go with a song that I actually played at my wedding. Perhaps it’s further proof that part of me is stuck in the 80s. Who can say? Either way I will always love: Men Without Hats – Safety Dance.

Day 12: Led Zeppelin

I was all set to post a little something from a group I just discovered, but then it stuck me…Led Zeppelin! Of course! *smacks forehead* I adore Led Zeppelin! (And so does my Evil Twin. This one’s for you, Mr. Steed!) And so, I bring you my favorite song from one of my favorite bands of all time. Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song.

And now…with Viking Kittens!

Day 11: Kidd Video

Once upon a time in the 80s, there was a TV Show called Kidd Video. It featured a group of young folks in a band that ended up being transported to another world and changed into cartoons. At the end of episodes, they had the band’s music videos. This one was my favorite. Kidd Video – You Better Run.

(P.S. sorry about the video quality, this was the best one I could find.)
