Main Question or Discussion Point

Having been discussed briefly in https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=71576
Everyone post what your anthem is.

Mine (despite popular belief) is not 'a boy named sue'. It's either "We're not going to take it" by twisted sister or by "Suffer" by Bad Religion

Probably "Help, I'm a rock" by the Mothers of Invention.

The child of Evo really liked this part of it:

It can't happen here
It can't happen here
I'm telling you, my dear
That it can't happen here
Because I been checkin' it out, baby
I checked it out a couple a times, hmmmmmmmm
And I'm telling you
It can't happen here
Oh darling, it's important that you believe me
(Bop bop bop bop)
That it can't happen here

Who could imagine that they would freak out somewhere in Kansas...
Kansas Kansas tototototodo
Kansas Kansas tototototodo
Kansas Kansas
Who could imagine that they would freak out in Minnesota...
Mimimimimimimi Minnesota, Minnesota, Minnesota
Who could imagine...

James Taylor's Secret O' Life springs to mind...

The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time
Any fool can do it
There ain't nothing to it
Nobody knows how we got to
The top of the hill
But since we're on our way down
We might as well enjoy the ride

The secret of love is in opening up your heart
It's okay to feel afraid
But don't let that stand in your way
'Cause anyone knows that love is the only road
And since we're only here for a while
Might as well show some style
Give us a smile

Isn't it a lovely ride
Sliding down
Gliding down
Try not to try too hard
It's just a lovely ride

Now the thing about time is that time
Isn't really real
It's just your point of view
How does it feel for you
Einstein said he could never understand it all
Planets spinning through space
The smile upon your face
Welcome to the human race

Some kind of lovely ride
I'll be sliding down
I'll be gliding down
Try not to try too hard
It's just a lovely ride

Do we have to be honest? "Desperado" by The Eagles/Linda Ronstadt (that's as close to honest I'm willing to admit... :uhh: )

Oh yea? I'm not really into hard stuff, but I like that song for some primal reason

I'm usually listening to some mellow vocal trance or happy hardcore song, with good female vocals that blend in with the synths and compliment the base in the song. If it also has a progressive/uplifting texture and good lyrics, its even better

That NIN CD is pretty mello. When you say trance songs, do you mean new age type music? I like Loreena McKennitt for example.

Here... come sit on Dr. Danger's lap and tell him all about it... :devil:

If anyone wonders why I consider this my song, here are the lyrics:

Zombie Woof by Frank Zappa


Three hunderd years ago
Thought I might get some sleep
Stretched myself out onna antique bed
An' my spirit did a midnight creep

You know I'll never sleep no more

To me it seem that is just ain't wise

Didja ever wake up in the mornin'
With a ZOMBY WOOF behind your eyes

I am the ZOMBY WOOF
I'm the creature all the ladies been
Talkin' about

I am the ZOMBY WOOF
They all seek for shelter when I come chargin' out
Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF

Tellin' you all the Zomby troof
Here I'm is...

Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF
Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF

The said aw-reety
An' they was aw-righty
An' I was a Zomby for you, little lady...

I got a great big pointed fang
Which is my Zomby Toof
My right foot is bigger than my other one is
Like a reg'lar Zomby Hoof
If I raid your dormitorium
Don't try to remain aloof...

I might snatch you up screamin' through the window all nekkid
An' do it to you on the roof, don't mess with the
ZOMBY WOOF

I am about as evil as a Boogie Man can be!

Tellin' you all the Zomby Troof
Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF

Tellin' you all the Zomby Troof
Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF
:approve:

NIN is more industrial/heavy metal. Trance is electronic dance music aka techno. So trance/techno would be Paul Van Dyk, Oakenfold - anyone heard starry-eyed surprise on that Coke commercial?

New Age is not under the trance category.

Doesn't that dance music get really tedious really quickly???
It's just a constant beat with some laser sounds thrown in and maybe a stolen sample from somewhere with some sci-fi quote in it ;)
"The system is down"

Anyways I'd have to go with "Life" by Devin Townsend.
I'm amazed at how many people who like metal or rock don't know about him 'cause I always thought he was really popular :confused:

its hard to explain, but the right combination of beat, vocals, and certain synth creates a great song - doesnt matter if its techno or rock. oh and if you have a good subwoofer or headphones to hear all the details its even better

got your high, high hopes
but now you're high for the right source
fears collide and nights are dark
but now it's time to brighten up

don't ever let them bring you down

got your high, high hopes
but now you're high for the right source
wind is warm, stars are bright
just close your eyes and imagine all

don't ever let them bring you down

That has to be Øystein Sunde's "Kjekt å ha".
Right from the start, it's just brilliant:

"Helt i fra tidenes litt ut på dagen
da Adam og Eva ble jagd ut av hagen,
har sjølberging vært alfa og omega"

:rofl: :biggrin:
