Asher Jukebox Part 172

Back by popular demand, here’s the weekly music review! Info about piece found on en.wikipedia.org

Fans of Rick & Morty and The Simpsons will recognize this one!

Baker Street (Instrumental) by Gerry Rafferty from the album “City to City” (1978)

This piece has probably the most catchy saxophone riff of all time. It is one of the times where the music speaks more than words ever could. Raphael Ravencroft’s amazing saxophone skills transport the listener into a world of cosmic euphoria and rhythm. It has been referenced countless times in popular culture, and is said to have been an influence on Slash’s solo in Sweet Child O’ Mine. The song peaked at #2 on the 1978 Billboard Hot 100. I absolutely adore this piece, and would love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

Computer Guy by Savlonic from the album “Red” 2014: This is a very cool Electronic piece that fills the listener’s head with melodious energy. It starts with an old “Dial-Up” sound, and then Sarah’s vocals start up. They have a very mysterious tone, and are quite beautiful as well. The song is about a futuristic, tech-savy guy, and the mysteries that surround him. The music video of this piece is absolutely wonderful, and expertly animated. I highly recommend this song to anybody who likes Electronic music. Be warned! The chorus will be stuck in your head for a long time!

Fuck Gravity by Virtual Riot from the album “100% No Bangers” 2014: Allow me to introduce you to the amazingness that is Glitch Hop. It’s a unique style of music that blends Hip Hop with electronic sounds. Virtual Riot is a German DJ that is a master of this genre. The track starts with a synthesized beat that repeats for about 10 seconds. Next, we get the first drop, and your ears are assaulted with electronic brilliance. Astonishing as it may be, that’s not the final drop! A few seconds after the first drop, we get to the second one, and it just rocks! If you are a fan at all of Electronic music and Dubstep, pick this up ASAP!

Asher’s Jukebox Part 166

Find Your Cloud by Papadosio from the album “T.E.T.I.O.S” 2012: This is an incredibly beautiful Ambient Electronic piece. It starts with a melodic sitar, accompanied by a snare drum. As the song lengthens, more instruments start to play, and you feel as if you’ve been transported into a mystical world. My absolute favorite part of the piece is the chorus, which is something you must hear to feel the full power of this epic. I highly recommend this song to anyone that loves to feel amazing.

Aliez (feat. Mizuki) by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] from the album “O1” 2015: This is a very catchy Japanese piece with beautiful vocals and a Hard Rock sound. The song starts with a piano that’s accompanied by a synthesizer that creates a chip tune melody. Next, we are presented with Mizuki’s beautiful, trance-like, voice. She really shines at the chorus, where she starts to belt with awesome ferocity. Lovers of J-Rock, or Japanese music in general, will get a kick out of this piece. I highly recommend it, and would love to hear your comments in the comment’s section below.

Please Enjoy:D!

It’s very hard to find the original on YouTube, so here’s Pellek metal cover of it. (ps. you can download the song on iTunes.)

Time Flies by Porcupine Tree from the album “The Incident” 2009: This is an absolutely phenomenal  Rock piece that just makes you feel good inside. It starts with a very melodic guitar riff, along with a wonderful vocal performance and equally awesome drums. My best friend, Ben, showed me this piece 1 year ago, and I was immediately hooked! I highly recommend this piece to absolutely anyone who loves great music.

Paradise on E [Final?] by BOUNC3  2005

As a teenager, I frequently went on Newgrounds.com to look at the new music. The music of Newgrounds was put into a section of the website called the Audio Portal. I remember one afternoon, I was on the site, looking for new music, and I found this gem. My jaw dropped as soon as the chorus started playing. This is an excellent Electronic piece with an absolutely incredible chorus. It starts with a slow tempo, and then gradually increases as the song progresses. When the song reaches the 68 second mark, your ears are met with one of the catchiest beats ever made! I highly recommend to piece to everyone, and I bet that some of you will get a nostalgia rush!
