Ancient cassette tape is finally broken, lost the track list ages ago.

Deutsche Grammophon classical recording. Acquired it circa 1983. Title: Serenades and Romances, The World's Loveliest Music for Strings. I think the catalog or serial number is 413 655-4 but I can't find the track list online. [more inside]

I'm tired of listening to angry men, I want to listen to angry women

I'm in a musical rut and I'd like to listen to more female-fronted "angry" music. Like Sleater-Kinney, but angrier. Like Hole, but still around. Is there a lesbian version of Trent Reznor? Bonus points for LGBTQ bands and bands that are still performing together. [more inside]

Viking party music?

I'm helping find music for a Viking-themed party that would be both fitting and fun to dance to. I've got some viking metal, but that is more head-banging than the booty-shaking I am hoping for. What is the Gogol Bordello of viking bands, or the electroswing of viking music?

Looking for an IOS app to shift the pitch of my music in real time

I'm looking for an IOS app that will let me play a song from my music library at a different (chosen) pitch, on the fly, without impacting song length. I know IOS audio editors can do this but I was hoping for something that didn't require loading, editing and saving each song before listening. Any ideas? (Case you were wondering, I'm trying to re-hear my music collection, and shifting pitch is one way to do it.)

Why is such a big deal made when an artist has to "give up their master recordings to the record label"? Can't the artist just record his/her song again? as many times as they want?

Realistic love songs

I love love and I hate most love songs. I feel that real love is incredibly beautiful in it's complexity yet knowledge of it's frailty. I want songs that express this sentiment without being cynical.

Is there a specific term for the syncopated "ayy / eh" chant in pop?

I've noticed that in some contemporary pop, especially songs drawing inspiration from hip-hop, have a chanted syllable on the off-beats that sounds like "ayy" or "eh". For example - 0:31 in "Fancy", 0:40 in "Turn Down For What", 0:48 in "Imma Be". Is there a term for this?

How do I learn to fully appreciate classical music?

I have recently become fascinated by Beethoven’s 9th, 8th and 5th symphonies, partly because I am familiar with some of the historical/philosophical context. I study and am familiar with the history of modern European philosophy (including Enlightenment philosophy and German Idealism) which I suspect could give me a beneficial entryway into the world of classical music. Can anyone recommend a method or approach to appreciating classical music more? Does anyone have suggestions for the best pieces and composers to set out with?

What modern composer creates impossible pieces for virtuoso players?`

A few years ago I read an interview or article about a modern composer that creates pieces for virtuoso musicians. The idea is that his pieces are so difficult and impossible to play that musicians have to make decisions on the fly on what to omit while playing, which is the true purpose of his compositions. Hoping that someone can help me out with a name.

I sing the song of good grammar

Clearly Weird Al's "Word Crimes" is the ne plus ultra of songs about proper word usage. But that can't be the only one! Can you suggest other songs about grammar, syntax, etc? (Note: Ironic by Alanis Morrisette does not fit the bill, as it is neither an accurate definition of ironic nor a good song.)
