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.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 167

Highlander (The One) by Lost Horizon from the album “A Flame To The Ground Beneath” 2003: Are you guys ready to headbang?! This is one of the coolest Metal songs I’ve ever heard, and it’s 12 minutes long! It starts with a bird’s call, and then Daniel Heiman’s vocals start up. They’re filled with cosmic passion and intense power. The piece has a great combination of epic guitars and awesome drum beats. The best part of the piece happens near the end, and this is where Daniel’s vocal talents shine. I highly recommend this piece to lovers of Metal and Hard Rock.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 163

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!

Asher’s Jukebox Part 160

Starliteby KOAN Sound & Asa from the album “Sanctuary” 2015: This has got to be one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard. It’s an immensely powerful piece that relieves the body of any stress. The piece is an amazing blend of Classical and Electronic music. It starts with a beautiful piano, and then the drum machine, violin, and synthesizer start up. The serenity and emotional power of this song can bring people to tears, and this alone made it have a spot on my jukebox. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.

Now, close your eyes, and get transported into a world of wonder!
