Biggest myth about Zeppelin is that they're a heavy metal band. Even calling them hard rock is a bit of a push.

Exam time what I'm listening to. Just stumbled across this. Fans of FF8 especially, check it out.



Now let's be honest, the arrangement is thoroughly, thoroughly flawed (some of the vocal harmonies at the beginning and end are pretty suspect - and oboe solo? Seriously?) but it's such a pretty piece of music, it *almost* doesn't matter.


EDIT:

Vastly superior version

It's astonishing that they put a fair sized orchestra and a fair sized choir on this but I'm happy they did.
I am either ridiculously impressed with voice recognition or completely baffled.

"Dive Source SCUBA Watersports" Did you mean, Dinosaurs School for Watersports?

No. But please take me there, smartphone.


We see this kind of shit in Wales all the time.

I like this. I like how you handled this. You could've come right out and been "Some guy cunted that sheep," but you went subtle.

FF7 music > FF8 music.

The last minute and a half or so of the first link just didnt happen, though. What the hell were they thinking.

Lies and slander. "Aeris" is great though, no arguments.

FFIX music is at least as good as both, mind.

Fisherman's Horizon is awesome, but I like the in-game version better despite its flaws.

I must say, and this may be a controversial standpoint, but, so far, I much prefer the music of FFVIII to any FF game I've played. Let me be clear, that is by no means saying the music of FFIX hasn't been excellent up to the point where I am currently. I also prefer Squall to Zidane but that's an entirely different matter. This all might change once I resume playing disc 3 of FFIX (this week, after my exams. For definite).






To name but a few. FFX has some great pieces too - Servants of the Mountain, Suteki Da Ne, Zanarkand...which almost make up for it slightly lacking in every other department. Whatever you think of the actual games, you have to concede that Nobuo's genius remains intact throughout the series.

Aside from all that, I've been listening to Sigur Rós, Iron & Wine, Enya and some Dylan.

Was FX not, like, the best for everything though?

I get what you mean about the original, Adam. There's an awesome little bridge after the first "verse" that sadly hasn't made it into any of the other versions.

Eoghan, consider yourself actively ignored.

Damn, I was hoping to invoke a fury of Tidus-fuelled rage there.
