Sparkeyu, you are supposed to comment on the song above you and THEN post your own :D, good game idea NWOWWE
for the sake of this game Id like to comment on both Street Spirit and...
"Robot Arena 2 Sounds"
Street Spirit (Fade Out) by Radiohead - Is this my kind of music? I guess so, yes. I always like to say Im a fan of all kinds of rock, some more than others, and this kind of alternative rock ranks pretty well in my book. Whats immediately appearant when listening to Streer Spirit is the slowness in which it drags itself forwards, and the... complaining, almost annoying tone the singer uses to go with this, reminds me of Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd for this. The melody and the voice are a perfect match, it creates a cold and gray (maybe even dark?... I'll stick with gray) atmosphere, shivers.
I Wiki'd the song for the hell of it, not to base my opinion on what others say but rather to see if Wiki says anything that confirms what I was already thinking. Things like "sad song" and "soft melody" seemed spot on, and then the lead singer is quoted saying how doing this song wrecks him emotionaly. From an artist's point of view that may make sense, but for me its just a song that sets a mood, and does that in a good way. The lyrics are puzzling, seems to be 3 short stories that all end with some dark uncanny fade out... the sheer phrase "fade out" also goes fantastic with the voice and melody. Giving it a grade is bloody tough since itll always be a mix of cod objective analysis and personal preference thrown in, should be something like 8/10.
Robot Arena 2 Sounds - Musically, this isnt very good, of course, its an aweful song, but one with lots of novelty value, its a gimick.
It will be able to put a smile on the face of some RA2 players, and thats something. If you look at it purely as a piece of music... dont bother, but as a piece of fun, it works, it does.
Now its time for me to post you guys a song to swallow hole, sadly Im not quite sure how to post the actual video IN this post, if someone could tell me thatd be ace, but for now this link is what you'll get
Worn Down Piano, by the Mark & Clark Band, Australian/American duo that for some reason only ever had one hit single, in only one country, The Netherlands. I happen to find this song fantastic, both in its lyrics and music, notice that that video clip is by no means official ;)
