I'm feeling a wee bit chatty since I have a paper to write and I really, really don't want to even think about it. At all. Also wanted to get the raegface off my face.
So! Music! Have a collection of songs I feel like sharing!
Everybody Poops - Bad Lip Reading [link]
-Here's a version of a Black Eyed Peas song that doesn't suck! I can't get it out of my head, especially the brilliant hook. Also worth checking out is GANG FIGHT, the song that Rebecca Black made a bad lip reading version of.
The Soldiering Life - The Decemberists [link]
-This is the Boone/Manny theme song. End of story. And I don't say this because recently I've been finding a way to connect every song I listen to to New Vegas, no matter how tenuous the connection. (Note to self: There's usually a huge difference between songs about California and songs that apply to the New California Republic.)
Pastures of Plenty / Ranger's Command - Woody Guthrie - [link] / [link]
Case in point, pretty much every song by Woody Guthrie. These are about specific things, this is the apocalypse, not the Depression. But somehow, these songs manage to be the Independent Vegas and NCR theme songs, respectively. In this case, being specific actually makes it work better, sorta, even if it's talking about something completely different.
Highwayman - The Highwaymen [link]
THESE ARE THE FOUR GREATEST PEOPLE EVER AND JOHNNY CASH FLIES A STARSHIP
The Most Unwanted Music - Komar & Melamid and David Soldier [link]
And here's the song you definitely didn't ask for and definitely won't want. I demand that you listen to it, because I'm one of the 200 people in the world who enjoys it. YO YO I'M A COWBOY NOW!
Though weirdly, I don't dislike any of the things on their list. I actually specifically prefer some of them. (Songs about cowboys, harps, opera, rap, elevator music, politics, extremely long songs, atonal music, etc.)
Such A Beautiful Girl Like You - Pizzicato Five [link]
Have I mentioned my love for P5 lately? Because I love P5. This song specifically has brought me through a lot of hard times. <3
Robots - Dan Mangan - [link]
And this is the Legion theme song! Yeah, Mass Effect is also bad with songs that are only vaguely related to it. This is the best one that I can find anywhere else . . . <3 Legion. Shepard/Legion is my OT1184.
