Title: Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: serendipity on August 30, 2004, 07:26:59 pm

Don't know if this has been done before and if so, I hope it's alright to do them again.

Having said that, we all know that Elijah is simply obsessed with loads of CD. Granted he's heard of perhaps a lot more songs than we have, what would be the one song or maybe songs that you'd highly recommend to him. Better yet, which group would you recommend to him?

I'll start.

I'd recommend he listen to The Dandy Warhols. Their songs "Bohemian Like You" and "Godless" are, I think, just about right to his taste in music. :D

I would recommend Venus Hum to him at the moment -- I've been listening to it nonstop, and it's wonderful. I think he would like the musical complexity, and the way the melody is melded in with this very pure electronica. Wonderful stuff, and beautifully written.

What song? Well, I'm going to exclude what we know he already likes or has heard. I'd say the Shins "Caring is Creepy." Just brilliant.

Serendipity: Melikes the Dandy Warhols! And I don't know if it has been done before. Not recently, I think.

I would tell Lij to check out "The String Cheese Incident". Or, at least try and see one of their shows. They frikkin' ROCK!!! 8)

As for the song, I would tell him to first listen to "Ms. Brown's Teahouse" for him to get an idea of what they are like.

;D

Seven: The Dandy Warhols are absolutely fab. When I heard Godless, I was hooked.

I'm no Elijah.. but I'll certainly check these recommendations. *giggles*

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: elwoth on September 02, 2004, 03:29:11 am

i have to check on the dandy warhols.
ok, i would recommend Lij with Mickey 3D (french band, but very accessible)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Etahiel on September 04, 2004, 07:14:48 am

All songs of HIM ;D ...

dntel... belle and sebastain... beck... DNTEL!... the debras...elefant....iron and wine... neutral milk hotel...pavement!...the shins... rhe smiths... sonic youth... spoon... the strokes...talking heads... television... the unicorns... velvet underground... wilco

he's probably already head of all them cuz he's such a goddamn music nut... but whatever, it's still good music :)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Kathleen on March 22, 2005, 10:17:29 pm

I would tell him to get Steve Burns - Songs for Dustmites. I love this album and it's the only one I know of that he might not know about. I think he'd like it.


Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Seven on March 23, 2005, 12:53:45 am

Woo, it's been awhile.

Anyway, now I think I would recommend the Fiery Furnaces to him. Assuming he doesn't already like it, that is. :) Sort of a folk-punk-piano-rock sound, very strange and very fun.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Laerduwen on March 24, 2005, 02:15:03 pm

I'd actually recommend a German band which probably none of you know... *lol* Anyway, they're called sl*t (*erm* *lol*) but they're better than their name might make one think. :P *lol* I really love them, anyway. ;)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Blue Star on March 31, 2005, 06:05:11 pm

I would recommend "Urgent" and "I've Been Waiting" by Foreigner, and just about any Evanescence song. ;)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: uNblessed Citrus on March 31, 2005, 06:31:24 pm

I'd recommend Keane and Joss Stone. :D

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Monkee on April 01, 2005, 11:10:12 am

I'd recommend anything by Mr. Bungle.. and I'd also recommend Fantomos. :D

I think Fiery Furnaces is a very good choice!

I would recommend 'The Late Great Cassiopia' by The Essex Green (if he hadn't already heard it)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Haru on January 20, 2007, 11:40:27 pm

I would lend him my small mountain of Nine Inch Nails cds, my Goldfrapp cds, the soundtrack to 'The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou' and The Dissociatives cd!!

Not to mention a whole bunch of other cds... ;D

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Lyla on January 25, 2007, 08:39:40 am

I would give Elijah the new Beatles-LP "Love".Very cool ;D

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Coz on January 25, 2007, 10:42:14 am

I'd be interested to find out if he was in to electro at all, and if he was then I'd recommend a few CSS track to him. Provided he hadn't heard them already of course.

And I'd possibly recommend The Radio Dept. to him too.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Reddragon on January 27, 2007, 01:24:23 am

Hmm I'd suggest Aussie band the Butterfly Effect, their song Gone if I had to choose one and hm... Hawk Nelson, any of theirs, many of theirs

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: ElijahsSweety on January 29, 2007, 08:45:41 am

Evanescence-My Immortal

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Lyla on February 20, 2007, 06:39:25 am

The new one from Norah Jones-perfect when heīs stressed;
"Stadium Arcadium"(RHCP)would make his day happier ;)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Lorienel on February 24, 2007, 06:50:22 am

Anything from Simon & Garfunkel. I was long hearing their songs and wondering who were these guys. I'm hooked to the song "Cecilia".

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Nutella Sister on February 24, 2007, 11:55:00 am

Hehe..the A&F boxie people ( including me and someother members on the forum) sent a CD to Elijah..and he listened to it..we chose some songs for him ;D 8)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Heather1215 on February 24, 2007, 03:18:05 pm

I'd recommend for him to listen to the Goo Goo Dolls...if he hasn't already since they started in New York, I'm sure he has maybe already heard of them, but I bet he'd like their songs "Iris", "Here Is Gone", and "Slide" if he hasn't. :)

BTW I heard about that Shayda, that's really cool! :D
Do you remember what songs were on the CD?

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Nutella Sister on February 25, 2007, 07:16:35 am

Heather I remmeber the songs I chose for him but not about the other one's..the songs I chose for him are from my own country and I'm sure you haven't heard them before ;D I can tell ya the names if you want :)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah

I would recommend the Evanescence albums, especially the first one oh and monster album by REM, a classic.

Elizabeth

Summer Holiday by Cliff!!! It's a classic!

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: maryd on June 13, 2007, 08:29:59 am

Or 'Costello Music' by the Fratellis - do you think they;'re not obscure enough for him, though!? ;D In every interview where he talks about music, there's always someone mentioned who I've never heard of...

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Aisling on June 13, 2007, 06:26:03 pm

Wow, my musical taste is pretty different from 'Lij's.

Maybe he'd like the 21-20s' "Shoot Your Gun." Or maybe the theme from "Charmed" -- I think it's called "How Soon Is Now." Originally done by the Smiths, but the version used on the show was done by a group called Love Spit Love.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah

I'd probably be too scared to recommend anything to Elijah because he has such a vast musical knowledge he is bound to already know of anything I could recommend.

Yeah, he knows a lot of music. But on the other hand, he loves talking about music, so why not? :-*

I sure hope Elijah has heard of the Scorpions, because for me, they are the best band to ever walk this Earth!! ;D
I'd be disappointed if (being the music connoisseur he is) that he hasn't heard of the Scorps.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Etahiel on February 07, 2008, 05:36:29 pm

Thanks for all recommnedations, I'm checking them wight now. I love dandy warhols, Venus Hum and The shins already, but I keep checking;]

and songs I would reccomend to him
definitely something from Polish artists, as he probably doesn't know any of them. So:
songs of Myslovitz, especially Dlugosc dzwieku samotnosci,
Dzem - List do M,
Closterkeller- Lunar,
Lzy - Niebieska sukienka
Stare Dobre Malzenstwo - 'Z nim bedziesz szczesliwsza' and 'opadly mgly'
T.Love - Ajrish
Coma - Daleka Droga Do Domu
Czeslaw Niemen - Dziwny jest ten swiat,

and some other:
Anathema - Inner Silence
Jason Mraz - On Love, In sadness
Moby - Porcelain
Mew - She Spider

That's all for now;]

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: elizabeth coffey on February 10, 2008, 12:30:05 pm

Seriously don't know if I could recommend any songs to him he probably already has heard most types of music, wouldn't know what to tell him to listen too ::)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on March 14, 2008, 12:54:50 am

As Mr Wood is such a music connoisseur already, I would also hesitate to make a recommendation, like many of you.

However, he may not know some of the bands from my country, Australia: Silverchair (especially their latest CDs Diorama and
Young Modern - brilliant stuff!)
The Presets (Electronica with a 'punk' twist)
Gyroscope (alternative rock)
Powderfinger (classic rock - beautiful lyrics)
Kate Miller Heidke (think Kate Bush)

But my fave band of the moment is probably The Shins and I'm sure he would have heard them.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Yuna Fa on March 14, 2008, 01:46:55 am

Iīd recommend a "different" selection (but iīve been heard he has lots of music... is that true?

"One winged angel" - Nobuo uematsu (with the Black Mages)
"Aeris Theme"- Nobuo Uematsu
"Dearly Beloved" - Kingdom Hearts
"Yunaīs Ballad" - FF X-2

And some things from this part of the world:
"La Guitarra" - Los Autenticos Decadentes
"Promesas" - Los Mono
"Mi ekilibrio espiritual" - Chancho en Piedra
"Wachy Perry" - Chancho en Piedra
"Viejo Diablo" - Chancho en Piedra
"Sindrome Camboya" - Sinergia
"El Momento de Libertad" - Sinergia
"Mujer Robusta" - Sinergia

... enough for a while.-

He sure has! At the very end of this (http://always.ejwsites.net/YaBBSE/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=32183), it mentions that he attended a Shins concert in London 2007.

By the way, some of your music recommendations sound pretty interesting. :)

I'd recommend 'Banquet' by Bloc Party, I'm so obsessed with that song. And 'Hearts on Fire' by Cut Copy.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on March 26, 2008, 12:15:39 am

I'd recommend 'Down Down Down' by the Presets, oh, and 'My People'

- kind of electronic/punk/dance music - he'd LOVE it!

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Starladear on March 27, 2008, 02:55:52 pm

the same bands i have been listening to all day long at work lol

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: raquel19 on May 24, 2008, 10:36:24 am

The song that I will want Elijah to listen to is...
even though its not very a rock....

Killa~Cherish

That song makes you want to move a lot! ahaha.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on June 04, 2008, 01:26:55 am

I'd recommend "One Crowded Hour' by Augie March. If Bob Dylan and Bono had a baby, this would be it! ;) Also, best lyrics by far of any modern song.

Also, would recommend 'Ole Black and Blue Eyes' by The Fratellis.

And 'Accelerate' and 'Diminished' by REM.


Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: Edna Frau on October 19, 2009, 05:18:16 am

I would suggest he listen to the entire album "The Flying Club Cup" by Beirut, and "The Trials of Van Occupanther", by Midlake.

But, I would love to personally recommend to him "Jed the Humanoid" by Grandaddy, I think he'd love it.

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: LijFrodo on October 21, 2009, 10:49:09 am

All songs of Backstreet Boys ... Especially ; Safest place to hide by BSB ! ... ;)

Title: Re:Song(s) you'd recommend to Elijah
Post by: redstar1 on October 24, 2009, 08:24:07 am

Everything ever made by Owl City/Adam Young. I think he would relax so much, and I hope he'll listen to Hot Air Balloon one day, it's beginning to be my top OC song, even if it isn't on Ocean Eyes album, lol.

But not just to Elijah, but to everyone. Owl City takes my stress away in a heartbeat, or if I'm having a bad day. ~x3

Post by: Enara on November 03, 2009, 02:52:54 pm

Mmmm... interesting topic. Letīs see... since I love Michael Jacksonīs music I would recommend him the album Thriller; such a classic.
