Fleet Foxes make a very pleasant sound - go Seattle! I love "Wish you were here" - that should have been on my list! Pixies would have been too, except I couldn't decide which one. :)


The full immersion piracy technique! It's like having Shanty Raidio back!


Aye. That clip is a classic - total brilliance, and makes me like the song even more!

I can probably live without the Eurovision entries. ;)

I like musicals too, although I might pick out different ones - I like "One night in Bangkok" from Chess, "Defying Gravity" from Wicked. I'd also have include Cats, and things like Rocky Horror and Blues Brothers!

There are a lot of Classical pieces that are good, if you like the genre that is.
Rhapsody in Blue - Insanely long, but fun to listen to all the changes.
1812 Overture - Try to get the version with cannons. ;)
I don't know any of the specific names of the songs, but anything by Frederick Chopin. It's really nice music and so smooth. :) Gives me goosebumps.
The Suite for Planets (Gustav Holst) are all good, especially Jupiter. Mars is cool if you like violent sounding instruments.
Adagio for Strings by the New Zealand Symphony is also quite good, but I don't recommend playing it loud, because the violons get quite high.

http://www.missbrautkleider.de/ Now, if you choose to mix your wedding colors, then you have to keep a few things in mind as well. For example, some colors work better in the background. A yellow or gold background, for instance, could look really nice against a tango red. Next, be sure that you start off with your base color first. From the base color, then you can start making lighter or darker shades from there. http://www.missbrautkleider.de/

Two years ago, I made a list but never got around to posting it. Today, the song, "Chasing Down the Sun" popped into my head, and I said, "heh, that should be Apollo's theme song." Which brings me here with a new, much shorter list.

2007 Hey Ya - Obadiah Parker
2010 Afloat - On the Rocks
2010 Hybernia - David Klinkenberg
2011 Chasing Down the Sun - New Heights
2012 Tetris Plays You! - Block Party (OC ReMix)

Someone said something about pirate music. So I recommend one more from OverClocked ReMix as a sort of twisted take on your pirate music:
