Sound Suggestions: Well, What Comes To Mind

This particular track comes with a rather bouncy backbeat and a hypnotic melody. Seriously. You may find yourself wondering where you were last night. This song isn’t even classified by the artist as Trance style! Rather amazing.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it about 37 times in a row before you muster enough willpower to shut it off. I’m absolutely not speaking from personal experience. Maybe. Probably. Don’t judge me…

Cheers!

Sound Suggestions: Sound of San Francisco Remix

I’m a sucker for anything involving one of my favorite songs, The Sound of San Francisco. Naturally, upon seeing the title I went for it and enjoyed the techno reverb that keeps the tune bouncy throughout. Along with a generous portioning of bass as well. That was in the original, but we’ll give Airprogressive their fair due ^_^.

I still believe that the ‘original’ original by Scott McKenzie is best. His voice pushes it over the top for me, but I do enjoy the numerous remixes that continue to pop up.

I wonder if there is a similar song in the UK that kicks up this level of nostalgia and/or country identity. I’m sure there is. Shoot it at me and I’ll give it a listen as well.

Cheers!

Sound Suggestions: Vänder På Kepsen

This is one of those rare songs that I can enjoy without having a clue what’s going on! BaraPaLatsas is a swedish band that keeps the flow moving and the horns blowing, keeping my attention regardless of the unintelligible (to me) words.

I was not able to find a translation, so if someone out there speaks Swedish and has a lot of time on their hands, give it a go! This band is still rocking out somewhere in the world, so support them Here!

Cheers!

Sound Suggestions: Knights of the Cross

This is one of those songs that I know I love after the very first few chords, I can easily picture a legion of Crusaders enjoying a tall pint of mead while taking it easy after an epic victory.

Flutes, lutes and tambourines are heard throughout the song, and at around 1:10 the melody undergoes a transformation into what almost sounds like an entirely new piece.

Draw thine sword, and defend thyself, knave! Have at thee!

Sound Suggestions: The Path To Everything

With all the stress that the middle of summer brings to some (yeah, right!) I decided that a calming melody best suited the situation.

This tune starts from a quiet beginning and builds towards a stronger end. Through it all, it maintains a semblance of peace. It allowed a modicum of quiet to come to my mind as I listened, and I hope it does to yours as well.

Cheers!

Ah, the indefatigable Waterflame strikes again. We have been featuring this artist on the 8-Bit Alliance for quite some time, and he has struck the mark once more!

This one is a happy little tune that speaks of peasants in the sunshine, playful days, and generally blissful surroundings. I expect there to be a downturn (just like in the movies) but it simply doesn’t come.

Enjoy!
