Argh! Such a hard question to answer! I guess it depends on the mood, time of the year, and a lot of other things. Right now, on the top of my list would be songs from my all time favourite band Type O Negative. It was Peter Steele's birthday last week, he would have been 50 years old now. The songs, in no particular order of preference:

The song that introduced me to them:


Currently my favorite song from them:


Their last music video before he died:


They really had a weird sense of humour. On their album World Coming Down, the first track sounds like a CD player skipping. People actually returned their CD's to be replaced thinking something was wrong with it.

Impossible to answer! I'll go for rock and pick the 1st three that come into my head that I think have moments of true brilliance.....

Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell
Rush - Broons/Trees/Xanadu sequence on Exit Stage Left
Led Zep - Kashmir (I suppose, how the hell do you pick just one?!)

:)

Here is the aforementioned 'Tears' followed by 'Closer to the heart. Hope you enjoy.

This is a bit of a toughie, while music has always been a subjective thing - I'll just use the top three bits of music that played some meaningful part

in my life. Upon reflection, all of them seem to be from my student days. *muses to myself* I guess I was too ignorant to appreciate the music when I

was younger and the music of the present is soulless by comparrison. I wonder if this is a generational thing?

1.) Under the Dying Sun by Forest of Shadows.
This is the bit of music which marked a part of my life where I stopped listening to corporate music. The intro alone made me sit upright and think "Bloody hell - this is my kind of music!" Swedish doom at it's finest. This music made me realise just how terrible magazines like Kerrang or Metal Hammer were.



2.) Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne
During college, every Wednesday I would end up playing Counterstrike with my buddies (it was the best time I had in college with the exception of paintballing) and because Counterstrike had no music, so I had hit the randomize button on my CD player. Crazy Train came on and it was so brilliantly manic - it soon became something of a tradition of mine to listen to Ozzy while playing Counterstrike.



3.) March of the Pigs - Nine Inch Nails
I guess this goes back from my bi-curious days of having an unusual man-crash on a buddy of mine (not that anything ever came of it) who dressed up much like Trent Reznor. What can I say, he was impossibly good looking like Johnny Depp, free spirited, witty, brilliant taste in all things and more fun than an explosion in Downing Street.

Here's the Tool track, very clever. A guy is admitted to hospital and seems to be talking bollox. Turns out he may have been abducted by aliens and so the song becomes an X-File.

Whoah! Good choice sir! One of the best doom tracks ever! I still remember when I first listened to this... I was like "THANK YOU INTERNET" hahaha

Now it looks like I'll be shifting my favourites to some DOOM tracks! :)

Here's a song that I highly recommend everyone to listen to, even those who are into the most basic forms of ROCK. Even if you just listen to the intro. One of the best (modern) doom metal songs ever, imho, funny that this is one of only a few tracks where they have female vocals:

I'll have to check this one out in the morning Opethian. My internet connection has been playing up all day. (I think it's the weather that affects it.)

Hope I'm not offending anyone here on their music tastes or even playing styles but one of the utmost funniest styles of music which is not intended to be taken funny is that Nordic heavy metal where they growl like hairy neanderthals instead of singing. And the names of the groups are hilarious too. In my small room reading library is a guitar catalog that has lots of heavy metal endorsees, most coming from Finland/Sweden and the like. Nothing helps the bowels more than having a good laugh at the names or inventing new ones in similar styles :) ....... Hairy Fist ....... Daarth ....... Poisoned Chalice ....... Clustered Menace ...... :rofl:

Apologies to Nordic growl-metal fans (or whatever that style is called).

Hang on a minute, I got an album of November's Doom - I think the album I have is called The Knowing. *Checks* Yes I do.
BTW, don't worry about it, LN. I couldn't help but to crack a smile at Hairy Fist and Clustered Menace either.

Actually Hairy Fist and Clustered Menace I made up - although they probably do exist! The other one I mentioned - Daarth - I'm certain does exist (probably needs an umlaut somewhere). Maybe Finnish for Death? :rofl: So anyway, if there is a group called Daärth, I hope there is also one called Faärt! :hyenas: :)

Some more made up ones.......
Föetus Àbortüs .....
Razer Skin ....
Fatal Jockstrap ....
Wrecktus ....
Anal Fissure ....
Wrath Of Babylon ....
Mother's Pie .....
Clitöris.....
Sexually Transmitted Delerium....
Brain Socket....
Death Stalker....
Death By Death....
Grim Reaper.....
Butt Probe Death...
Colonoscopy....
Putrid Corpse.....

etc..... :)

No offense taken! That's what I like about listening tometal, you can't really take it too seriously. If we did, that'd be r*tarded. :D

Metal and humour go hand in hand, just check out Dethklok, and Andy Rehfeldt. This dude makes metal songs out of pop songs, and turns metal songs into pop country jazz stuff haha. http://www.youtube.com/user/AndyRehfeldt
