And if it’s crowded, all the better Because we know we’re gonna be up late But if you’re worried about the weather Then you picked the wrong place to stay
Taken from the song All My Friends by New York band LCD Soundsystem from their second studio album Sounds of Silver (2007). I really do love this song and featured it back in my post of Awesome Songs of Over 7 Minutes.
I’ve a huge passion for music, as shown by the fact I’ve listed 119 different artists (and counting) on my Music page, as well as numerous others in posts such as Impressive Foreign Language Songs, Mostly Instrumental Songs and Awesome Songs of Seven Minutes Plus. But while those later links have covered artists as varied as Metallica, The Stone Roses, LCD Soundsystem, Aphex Twin, Grandmaster Flash and Moenia, there are still some fantastic singers and groups I’ve not yet managed to include. So here’s a post celebrating those I haven’t yet included, fittingly with an extra song shoved in. How many of them do you recognise? Which was the one you heard most recently?
While I usually focus on individual lines, I’ve done a few lengthier musical posts, like with covers better than the originals, impressive foreign language songs and songs to lighten your mood and make you smile. I’ve been listening to quite a lot recently, so thought I’d add another. The really talented bands can keep you listening for minutes on end and make you lose yourself, even just with one song. Limiting myself to one song per artist (and you’ll see most of them represented here), here are eight awesome tracks of seven minutes and above. Feel free to share your favourites below.
