Youtube... music and stuff
Below are some links to Youtube of sounds and music that are mentioned in the story or may relate to it.
Music Queue specifically referenced in the books...
PART 01 - saltare cüm diablo
PART 02 - pearls before swine
Psalm 69 (NWO and Jesus Built My Hotrod) - Ministry
When I mentioned "techno-metal" this is what I had in
mind. They call it "industrial" now but no matter what
it's called I just could not get into it back in the day. In
a recent turn of events it's my most frequented Pandora
station. I'm listening to [White Zombie] for fuck's sake!
What in the hell happened to me?
Time Warp - Richard O'Brien
Yes-yes-yes it is in the first book! Rocky Horror is
something that is not gonna go away. If people get a
bit sloshed and someone puts on the Time Warp then
people are gonna go to warp speed! That's the beauty
of getting stupid drunk and I say that from experience.
The Buzzard Was Their Friend - Dan Hicks
I've been forever waiting for Les Claypool to do a cover
of this song. I had some friends do a cover very much
like this one and it kicked ass. They had an extended
bass solo and I would love to get a copy of that. And if
Steve and Kathy are listening...I WANT!
Bolero - Ravel, interpreted by Arturo Toscanini (1939)
Toscanini kicks Bolero in the ass and shaves almost
3 minutes off the original which makes it NOT boring.
When "10" came out ('79) everyone wanted to fuck to
Bolero and I wondered why? Stairway to Heaven was
way better suited for that endeavor. Anyway, I'm a fan
of traditional Bolero so [click here] if you want to watch
the least uptight version I've heard in quite awhile. You
can see and feel the joy in the conductor and it makes
a huge difference to those in the pit.
Goreki - Symphony No.3 - 2nd Movement
PART 03 - diet of worms
Known as the "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs" this
version was filmed in Auschwitz or [click here] if you
want to watch the "wrist slashing" version. Honestly,
this is the one piece of music that brings me to tears
because it is both sad and uplifting.
Hej Sokoly - Ludowa Piosenka
What can you say about something as infinitly timeless
as Hej Sokoly? This version is probably the most child
like interpretation and most likely what would be heard if
this were performed by a thousand children - and I'll just
leave that to your imagination. Then again, it is such a
powerful song in Eastern Europe that if you [click here]
you'll get the most "harmonious" version I've heard!
1seventy8 - Adèle & Zalem
The Didgeridoo contest in the book is very much like
listening to these two from France where the Didg has
become crazy popular. If you like then [click here] to
watch the 2014 Didg to Didg blowout in Grenoble.
Fists of Fury - Liquid Stranger (Noisitron woob mix)
Okay, this link is to SoundCloud. I do the dubstep
thing once and awhile - but it's gotta make my face
melt or it ain't worth my time. I can't pinpoint where
in the book because making references to it really
broke the flow so I'll just add it here. If its optioned
you'll then get to see where it queues up.
Tight Spin - Ozric Tentacles
PART 04 - deus ex machina
I wanted to post this here because this band is the
bomb. I saw them live in 2006 and ever since I have
picked up everything they pressed. Pure music for
for its own sake and it's aMAziNg to hear for once.
[Click here] for Plant Music or [here] for a little bite
of Chewier just to get started!
Walk Like an Egyptian - The Bangels
What I like or don't like is irrelevant—it's about what
the characters like. People act stupid when this song
is played and I just have to bow to the inevitable. It's
odd that I now look back at things I once hated with a
Guccie Coochie - Die Antwoord
This Zuid-Afrika group has become one of my secret
little pleasures. This song is a hybrid between rave
and dance and if I were to use it in a film I'd mix the
shit outta it...that didn't sound right, Ninja. Sorry...
Gangnam Style - Psy
Shit serious, I got to add this one too! Just when I
thought I made a clean gettaway from the dance shit
and Psy pops in to up fuck my day! Another one of
those god-damned pop videos that everyone will love
way into this millennium.
Maori Wedding Haka - New Zeland
Some cultures music and traditions can throw you for
a loop and the Maori top that list. When you find out
what a Haka is about it is both shocking and beautiful.
There are a lot of Hakas on the Tubes but the wedding
hakas come out best sound wise. Or [click here] and
queue up to 1:28 to try another one.
Zaouli - in Dijon France with ZEDEKA
PART 05 - violent delights
This vid introduces you to the Zaouli dance with an
African drum line. Zaouli is an absolutely beautiful
style of dance that is performed by mostly men that
celebrates the feminine. Or [click here] if you want
to see Zaouli in Trance mode! (more links in glossary)
Puro Flamenco - Buleria (Spain)
This is a fabulous vid. There's a connection between
Mariachi and this and, in a few centuries I'm banking
there is more of a melding of the styles.
Flamenco Dance - Celina Zambon
In one word...yikes! That said, it piques my curiosity
what our Cubanaza Damas would do to this. I think
hot laced with zany would be about right.
Mozart Violin Concerto 3 - Stuttgart Radio Symphony
I used to be a classical music snob but the problem is
nobody likes a snob. I can just imagine how a daring
Mariachi band could pull this off and I would love it!
Waltz of the Flowers - Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlan
Ask and ye shall receive they say! I would amp
the tempo up just a tad but damn these cats get it
right! No, I am not a fan of Mariachi but I do love to
hear it when it's live. Admittedly, this version is fun.
Fooly Cooly - Yoji Enokido and Kazuya Tsurumaki
If you got two and a half hours to piss away then here
ya go—all six episodes of the original anime! My son
and I binged on this back when he was twelve. When
Adult Swim and Cartoon-Cartoon was worth your time.
Little Fugue in G minor - Bach / Virgil Fox
I had this vinal back when I was a kid in the '70s and
we wore it out and had to replace it once. I thought
Virgil Fox was a god back then, and rightly so.
Love Shack - B-52's
Gawd, how I hated this when it came out and, truth
be told, I still hate it. Then again, this is what the
characters like—not me. I can live with that?
Sleep Dirt - Frank Zappa
I loved the orignal release and it's back out...whew!
I post this here for you to imagine this performed as
a duet with Yuki Koshimoto. (see below) On pan
drums at a slower tempo...yea, I can hear it now!
Spacedrum - Yuki Koshimoto
Here is an example where primative music is just
georgeous. I think pretty much everything she's put
on youtube I like. [Click here] if you want to see the
soft version of Spacedrum.
Closer walk With Thee - Treme
There is nothing to say here except that I want these
guys playing for my funeral...
Over In The Glory Land - Olympia Brass Band
Maybe I'd rather have these guys playin' for my dead
ass when the time comes?
When The Saints Go Marching In - NOTJ
Here, New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band tears it up
or [click here] for NOTJ to do it again!
You Can't Touch This - MC Hammer
MC Hammer tears it up for the hip-hop dance types
but that didn't include your's truly! Again, it's odd that
my nostalgic reverence taints my view of these songs
that I so loathed back in the day.
Water Music - Handel
Growing up I listened to most music (not pop or disco)
but secretly I was a classical music snob! Back in the
day it was "Our top 40 never changes!" 96.5 (KMTR)
but, the problem with the old stuff is that after a good
long while—it gets old. I swore I would never queue up
Water Music again, but here we are!
God In the Planning - John Bell
Originally derfived from the Irish Hymn "Be Thou My
Vision" and arranged by David Evans. This versaion
is performed by Catherine O'Connell.
Moonlight Serenade - Glenn Miller
Swing ballad staple from 1939 and, with the help of
Joseph Schillinger, it defined the Glenn Miller sound.
The song evolved from "Now I Lay Me Down To Weep"
and "Gone with the Dawn."
Song of India - Tommy Dorsey
Adapted from the aria "Pesnia Indilskogo Gostia"
(Song of the Indian Guest) from Rimsky-Korsagov's
1896 opera Sadko.
Cotton Tail - Duke Ellington
Jazz/Big Band composition based on rhythm changes
from Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm."
Yackety Sax - Boots Randolph
I'm sorry I brought this up when I did but in the UK with
Benny Hill this was a thing!
Stukas Over Disneyland - The Dickies
I saw the Dickies play this live in the early '80s, and it
was not noticed in the text, but since it is the title of a
chapter I thought I'd drop this here!
Videos of Interest if you got the time...
A10 Warthog Gun Runs (Iraq)
A10 Warthog Strafing/Bombing Runs
A10 Warthog "Happy Brrrt Day Special"
JDAM Explosion Compilation for 2015
Uncut Explosion Compilation for 2016
Here are examples where sound does NOT follow the
visual queues. This is the most frustrating thing about
watching movies because it takes over 4 seconds for
sound and shockwaves to travel a mile in air so how
'bout you GET IT RIGHT FOR ONCE!
Wicked Flybys (airshow, Iraq and Afganistan)
Notice the sound and the vapor chines flashing over
the fighters on the supersonic flybys.
Top 15 unbelieveable maneuvers at low level flight!
Just some nice footage
The Universe 210 - Constellations
If you don't know anything about astronomy this is
a good place to start learnin' yourself somethin'. It's
44 minutes long so make the time if you can.
Sounds of space and this stuff is pretty crazy...
NASA Sounds from the Sun
NASA Sounds from Mercury
NASA Sounds from Venus
NASA Song of the Earth
NASA Sounds from Mars
Voyager Sounds from Jupiter
Voyager Sounds from Io
Voyager Sounds from Saturn
Voyager Sounds from Saturn's Rings
Voyager Sounds from Uranus
