This is a beautiful melody from W3, so if you haven't played the game yet and plan on getting it then you might wanna avoid listening to it for now. It's not really a spoiler in the traditional sense, but I guess hearing it before some of the moments in-game may diminish the music's effect.
I suppose I could throw in a random selection for once:
Mafia 2 has a song on the radio named "When you're smiling". Lous Armstrong did a cover of this song (or perhaps the original?) in a very slow version, and the instrumental music in this song really really reminds me of those LP records that were played at random points throughout Metro2033 and Last Light. Also makes me think of Fallout, of course
A really cool instrument, the Hurdy Gurdy. Starting at 2:05 in the video, and going out all the way to 2:58 or so, there's first that normal beat, then the strings kick in and give it that kind of "rock" feeling like in some of the Metro tracks, and then the "screeching" noise begins after the low drumming. I just see this part of this music fit perfectly into a Metro trailer or something
Komodo: Have you ever heard of Igor & The Red Elvises? They came to my town a week or two ago, but I didn't have the opportunity to go I heard about them on the radio p) when the singer, Igor, was being interviewed before the show. I never knew about them until then, so I went ahead and looked them up -they're pretty great:
Also, the band Scorpions is coming, to perform, in March. I heard about it on the radio p) but, again, it was too late. The only tickets available can be obtained, by winning them, through the radio station itself. You need to be the 5th caller, at a certain time, when they hold the raffles. I have yet to win :sad: I just wonder if the radio host is actually speaking the truth when I ask, "am I the 5th caller," and they say, "no." They probably think that "this guys doesn't sound cool enough to get the tickets. Even though he is the 5th caller, we'll still tell him 'no' and give it to someone else."
And the one song everyone recognizes them for
Song about Ivan Sirko, a Zaporozhian Cossack leader from the late 1600s who is said to have authored the amusing reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV.
Haha! I can just picture the rich, stern Turkish Sultan Guy and a scribe writing down his "threatening" words toward the Zaporozhian Cossacks (not that it happened that way). He would then have the scribe read and reread the ultimatum back to him in order to feel assured that it sounded intimidating. Then, days/weeks/months after sending the letter to the Cossacks, he gets a filthy letter in return that knocked him off his high horse. :lol:
Nice song, BTW.
Some claim the letter itself was fake, but as far as I know there is no overwhelming proof to suggest either way that it was real or not. In any case, it fits the Cossacks and their image. Although they are linked more closely with the culture and history of Ukraine, even in Poland they have been and continue to be perceived as radgies - in our language the word "kozak" is what we use when English speakers use "badass".
Sabaton used to be one of my favourite bands (I still like them, but they're a bit too repetitive for me nowadays) and the song above is probably the one that got me interested in them all those years ago. Still, I think they sound much better in Swedish and I think the limited edition version of Carolus Rex (with music on the second disc fully in Swedish) is probably my favouite of all their albums.
This is some in-game music to Payday: the heist. It can be heard in a level called Diamond Heist, in which a celebration is going on in one of the offices and a hired DJ is playing these tracks.
I've been hearing this song on the radio lately:
