I am looking for modern, dark, forward thinking, dance music which preferably somehow reflects on the theme of a quarter life crisis. Overly exacting specifications inside. [more inside]
I am looking for songs about love and/or obsession that feature a creepy / dark / disturbing aesthetic. [more inside]
I've been listening to pretty much nothing but Bohren for about a week, and need more music in a similar vein: extremely slow and at least somewhat jazzy. Details regarding what I already know/like below the fold. [more inside]
Working on a project and I'm looking for songs that have a dark, driving, ominous beat. Like a thunderstorm looming on the horizon if I could give it a visual. [more inside]
I love the theatrical, haunting, sad, yet, beautiful music of Lana Del Ray. Can you recommend any similar music, or accompanying literature and cinema? Thank you!
Help us build our goth-prom-party playlist! [more inside]
Asking for my husband: I just got the Heat soundtrack, and it is intense and moody. I am looking for other soundtracks, or actual albums, that fit that bill. Obviously Blade Runner, and I am imagining a lot of Friedkin films, but the mix of dark and strong is something I would like to hear more of.
Looking for beautiful songs with good lyrics that evoke a feeling of violation, dark secrets, slow growing horror [more inside]
chococat calls his rendition of Fame "dirge-like"; I call it creepy-sexy-creepy. e.g. It's rather a turn on, even though it sounds just subtly too menacing or scary to be a turn-on, but that very quality is why it's a turn-on. Any other recommendations for similar songs? (The only other one I know that fits is Poe's Control.)
I'm looking for more songs like these three (male vocals, with dark and dour swoony swagger): Elbow - The Fix, The Damned - Torture Me, Blur - To the End. I already know about Murder by Death, Firewater, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Joy Division, Morphine and Marc Almond...what am I missing?
What are some creepy, disturbing, scary, eerie DANCE tracks? [more inside]
Who's darker and more menacing than Tool? No ROHHROHHROHHROHHHHH death metal recommendations, please. Otherwise, go nuts. [more inside]
I'm looking for ambient music which consists of dark undertones, "good" beats, and a general feeling of...psychedelic hopelessness? danger, maybe? I'm not sure. [more inside]
MeFites, A long time ago I was playing trivia in a bar and in between rounds one night this dark, almost minimalist country song played. I'm reasonably sure it was a Patsy Cline song. It was in a minor key with a theramin or possibly backup singers (or both!?) providing eerie accompaniment to a very catchy tune. I'd heard it before so I assume it's well known, but it's not on her greatest hits. Any ideas what the title might be?
I'm particularly fond of Tara Nevin's rendition of "Stars Fell on Alabama" from the (terrible) film 20 Years After. (It's the only thing that made the film worth watching). It feels like something that could be played at a funeral march in the deep south. How would you categorize this particular piece of music? Dark bluegrass? Help me find more music in this dark and moody style. Slow, fiddle driven is a plus. Somber and dirge-like (musical rather than lyrical), double plus.
What is this dark, synth/EBM goth club song? [more inside]
Looking for music like these two specific songs sung by Jose Gonzalez. Dark, deep music with acoustic guitars. ("Far Away" and "Rope and Summit")
Can you help me find other pieces of "dark" music to enjoy? [more inside]
Upbeat music, dark lyrics, intriguing narrator to whom you can't really relate...help me find more songs like these! [more inside]
Help me identify this band I heard. Hungarian / Russian / Czech / Other Easter European folk orchestra? [more inside]
I am looking for songs that call to mind (music-wise, rather than lyrics-wise) the rather specific feeling of walking or driving away from a great disaster that has left one greatly scarred, but alive: Post-apocalyptic victory songs. [more inside]
Not-Lame Country Music: I understand that some Alice in Chains, Nirvana, etc. , songs have a strong "country" flavor, deep guitars, slow vocals, tons of mood, while still rocking. I know nothing about country music, and most of what I've heard doesn't do it for me. What dark, slow and moody Country music would you recommend?
