Asher’s Jukebox Part 174

The Way Home by Magic Sword from the album “Volume 1” (2015)

This is an absolutely epic song by Ohio Electronic Trio, Magic Sword. The piece was used in one of my favorite video games, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. It comes from a genre of music called Synthwave, which is a throwback to old 80’s action movies and heavy synth. It starts with the wind blowing, accompanied by a repetitive drum beat. Next, the epic bass and synth start playing, and this is where things get awesome! The synth starts playing a very catchy rhythm, and then the drum signals a tempo change. The ending result is a bass and synth heavy instrumental ballad of epic proportions! I absolutely  adore this work of musical genius, and I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) by My Chemical Romance from the album “Danger Days:  The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys” 2010 (info about album from Ah yes, one of my all time favorite songs! The lyricism and music video are both glorious, and I really hope that you guys will enjoy it. Anyway, time for the analysis. The song starts with an awesome guitar riff, and then Gerard’s vocals and the drums start up. The lyrics to this piece are very powerful, and seem to tell the story of a near future. It’s an absolutely fantastic Rock ballad that I hope you all enjoy. Tell me what you think about the piece in the comments section below.
