    An idea from another forum I frequent, pretty cool and helps to better understand the variety of taste amongst members.

    Basically, review and approve/disapprove of previous posters' tracks. Put your own shit on shuffle. Post first ten songs. Put in bold your favorite two or three of those ten songs. Easy enough.

    Richard Pryor- Heart and Brain
    Swans- Some Things We Do
    Spa Music Collective- Great Vacations
    Don Ross- Give Me Seven Reasons
    16 Horsepower- Golden Rope
    Dimmu Borgir- Nar sjelen hentes til Helvete
    TLC- Don't Pull Out on Me Yet
    Toadliquor- Gnaw
    Carpathian Forest- Frostbitten Woodlands of Norway
    Deep Purple- Nobody's Home

    So you need to listen to ten of another person's songs to play this game?

    No dude, Just like make some sort of commentary, promote discussion. You don't have to listen to anyone's songs, if you don't know anything that's cool. But if you like or dislike something say so.

    The main point is to post your own shit and bold your favorites.

    I'm probably not a good pick for this game. I have new iTunes (my previous HD broke) so there's like 45GB of music and I don't import my favorite stuff first, or import all the cds I own first. But oh well, the first ten with shuffle:

    1) Alois Hába - 6 Compositions 16-tone harmonium or String Quartet - no. 6 (Stamic Quartet on the Complete Hába Quartets disc)
    2) Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93 - IV. Allegro vivace (this is from the Chailly complete set with Gewandhausorchester, on Decca. A man needs his Beethoven set. I also have some old ones with Toscanini)
    3) Johann Sebastian Bach - Double Violin Concerto In D Minor - II. Largo Ma Non Tanto (the Hilary Hahn Bach cd, it has a glorious cover too, with her face on it :Smug: )
    4) Merzbow - ____ 1 (on Spiral Honey. I like to have some Merzbow in case I can't sleep and have to numb my brain)
    5) Ralph Vaughan Williams - Quintet in D major - II. Intermezzo - Allegretto (played by Nash Ensemble, part of the Early Chamber Music DCD)
    6) Johann Sebastian Bach - Concerto No. 2 in F major, BWV 1047 - II. Andante (from the Brandenburg concertos, Academy of Ancient Music, Richard Egarr)
    7) Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor - Part III - IV. Adagietto. Sehr langsam (Very slow) (with fucking Leonard Bernstein and the Vienna Philharmonic on DG. he has also recorded Mahlers with NYphil and some with Royal Concertgebow. I need Mahler symphonies in mah iTunes, although I prefer 1, 2 and 7)
    8) Dmitri hostakovich - String Quartet No. 14 in F-sharp Major, op. 142 (1972-73) - I. Allegretto (Emerson set on DG)
    9) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Sonata No. 4 In E Flat, K 282 - I. Adagio (Glenn Gould, I love Gould's Mozart, fuck the repetitions :) )
    10) Alois Hába - Suite for Bass Clarinet and Piano, Op. 100 - IV. Allegro animato (the Centenary three disc collection)

    Coincidentally, I got no metal in the first ten, I have quite a lot though.

    Oh yeah, on 11 I got Hellhammer, the intro from Satanic Rites. :p

    Nice shuffle Onder, I'm also a Gould fan. Show them how to fuckin do it man. Commentary optional.

    This was a tough one to pick favorites in. I really can't recommend Sons of Otis enough for stoner fans, but there's some tight tracks in this shuffle.

    Sons of Otis- Losing It
    Sons of Otis- The Pusher
    Saint Vitus- Bitter Truth
    Ghoultown- London Dungeon
    Irepress- Daniel Sen
    Return to Forever- Majestic Dance
    Flametal- Silencio/ Scintilla
    Graveyard- Don't Take Us for Fools
    Deep Purple- Space Truckin
    Stevie Ray Vaughan- Couldn't Stand the Weather

    Ha, Flametal. Mannn, that band really shouldn't exist. It is truly a shame that they don't actually incorporate the flamenco guitar style in a less gimmicky way.

    Revelation - Then and Again
    Girls' Generation - Dancing Queen
    Broken Social Scene - Handjobs for the Holidays
    Girls' Generation - 낭만길 (Romantic St.)
    Girls' Generation - 별별별 (☆★☆)
    Childish Gambino - Difference
    The Antlers - No Windows
    We Save Strawberries - Something About You
    Asphyx - Scorbutics
    Belenos - Noz Pagan

    I have no idea how Girls Generation showed up three times...

    I've still not heard anything from Belenos, and I know they are well liked on this forum. I'm so lazy about listening to new stuff.

    EDIT: Mort, I looked up Girls Generation, and it showed up 3 times because you're either secretly genius or you're a deeply repressed homo.

    Lantlos-Neige De Mars
    Jungle Rot-Their Finest Hour
    Ingested-Endgame
    Bee Gees-Don't Wanna Live Inside Myself
    Immortal-Damned In Black
    Dark Funeral-Hail Murder
    1349-From The Deeps
    Danzig-Tired of Being Alive
    Burzum-En Ring Til Aa Herske
    Burzum-My Journey To The Stars

    ^ Some really good tracks on that. The Bee Gees are the shit! Fun thread.

    1. B.B. King - Monday Woman
    2.Dark Castle - I Hear Wind
    3. Summoning - Mirkwood
    4. Gontyna Kry - Krew Naszych Ojcow
    5. Wojciech Kilar - Moving to the Ghetto Oct. 31 (From the movie The Pianist)
    6. Falkenbach - Asa
    7.Beethoven: Fidelio, Op. 72 - Overture
    8. Necros Christos - In Love with Ereskigal (Temple)
    9. Ascension - Grant Me Light
    10. The Atomic Bitchwax - Gettin' Old [Live]

    That was surprisingly more diverse than what I thought it would be. The Pianist track and that Necros Christos track are super short so it makes picking top three a little easier… but goddamn this is hard! Can't i choose everything?

    I don't mind Type O or Witchcraft, but haven't listened to them a lot. Love Black Sabbath but it really doesn't need to be remastered. Cannot stand Winehouse.

    Funerary_Doom, I saw The Atomic Bitchwax play a poorly promoted gig to 20 or so people 2 years ago. It was quite embarrassing, even if I can say I've seen the Bitchwax give 100% to a nearly empty room.

    I'm only shuffling my metal folders. I don't want to take things too far off topic. ;)

    Diamond Head - Makin' Music
    Metallica - Ain't My Bitch
    Stahlhammer - Der Zerbrochene Traum
    Strikemaster - It's Not My Fight (live)
    Candlemass - Through the Infinitive Halls of Death
    Razorwyre - Suspiria (live)
    Tankard - Atomic Twilight
    Samurai - Die or Deliver
    Samson - Dream
    Motörhead - God Was Never on Your Side

    A lot of old people don't listen to music like this. For me it is put in a CD and listen to it, then put in the next CD.

    But I wanted to comment on this:


    WORD!

    I don't listen to music on shuffle either, but it's not hard to just switch to shuffle and skip through ten songs quickly.

    Re: Bloopy, a lot of names I know but not many familiar song titles tbh. Through the Infinitive Halls of Death is decent, but not one of favorites on the album. I've never heard Diamond Head's Canterbury although I'm pretty sure I still know that song somehow; pretty decent melodic hard rock. Samurai is a band I never got around to checking out, but that song sounds really good. Getting some Thin Lizzy vibes here, strong swinging drumming ala Downey and legit guitar harmonies after the verses as well. Will definitely check them out further.

    My ten:

    Norrin Radd - Four Lights
    Realm - Knee Deep in Blood
    Crypt of Kerberos - The Ancient War
    Tuxedomoon - Desire
    Lord Bane - Louange Au Prophete / Fawns
    Abigor - Bloody Cross
    Sepultura - Amen
    Ohio Players - You and Me
    My Sister's Machine - Steamy Swamp Thang
    Pantera - Power Metal

    Switching to shuffle while listening to a CD just plays the songs from the CD in a different order.

    Ok, yeah, I thought it would be obvious that this thread only works for those that have their collection stored in MP3 form somewhere.
