    Hmm.  Different.  I like it.  Of course, I like almost anything with bagpipes.  Though hers are different from what I'm used to.  Only 2 drone pipes instead of 3.

    After watching that "The HU" video, youtube popped up with several suggested videos.  I watched this one.  I'm assuming it's a famous girl group, but I was initially impressed just with the "background" musicians:

    Doesn't have the sense of impending violence that the original and most of the covers have, but I'm still diggin' it.

    Postmodern Jukebox, has phenomenal musicians, great mixing/recording, beautiful production, but something about most of their recordings just leaves me flat.  It is not bad, but I won't take a step to turn it up.  That is how I rate music, number of steps to crank it up.

    Not bad.  I could see how that might grow on you a bit.  When it first started I was tempted to bang on my speakers to see if they were malfunctioning but then the piece got going and started to sound like music.   :cool

    One of my many hobbies is music, from all directions - listening, playing, composing, etc.  I've recently added analog synths to the palette.  While researching *which* analog synth I wanted to add, I came across this.

    Daaaamn, she's good.

    I know everyone has different tastes and preferences, but that synth stuff is some cruel and usual punishment to my ears.

    There must be a tone in there just hitting me wrong, but it is grating like nails on a chalkboard.

    Hopefully I don't date myself by stating this, but I can't help but think of Rocky and Bullwinkle when I hear the beginning of that sentence.

    Good stuff, indeed.   :cool    Actually, the phrase was made famous and wildly popular by the British comedy troupe Monty Python in their "Monty Python's Flying Circus" weekly television program.  I think they all said it at one time or another but I believe the guy most associated with it was Eric Idle.  I liked it well enough to shamelessly steal it on the spot and have been using it ever since.   :whistle
