Power pop-me-up!

A two-mile walk in the morning is much more fun with power pop. However, the first Fountains of Wayne and Weezer albums will wear out pretty quickly. Give me your power pop recommendations! If it has fuzzy guitars, harmonies, and a tune that could soundtrack a secretly great teen movie, I want to know about it. [more inside]

Evil Surf Punk?

I really like the combination of ominous sound and surf guitar influence in East Bay Ray's work with the Dead Kennedys. (Examples would be "Police Truck" and "Too Drunk to Fuck".) Are there other bands who do a similar sort of evil surf sound?

Song examples showcasing both drumming on the beat and after the beat?

In this post, I found this song, with a section around 0:43 which illustrates how clapping on the beat vs. after the beat changes the feel of a song. I'd like more examples where either 1) one recording contains clapping/drumming that's on the beat, followed by the same section where the clapping/drumming is after the beat or 2) two different versions of the same recording, one version with the clapping/drumming on the beat, and a second version of the same recording where the clapping/drumming is after the beat.

What genre of music is this?

I love Paul Simon's Graceland album. How can I find more authentic african music in the vein of Crazy Love, Part II ? Particularly the happy, celebratory, guitar lines. I am aware of Samba Ngo, and Ladysmith BM, who I love. I want to dive into this happy sound. Help!

More songs for baby video, like M. Ward's "One Hundred Million Years"

I'm looking for more songs similar to M. Ward's "One Hundred Million Years" for a 20-minute baby photo/video compilation. I have found plenty of kids' songs and songs written about having children. I'm looking for more indie songs that echo the sentiment, "And this love, this love between you and I, Is older than that burning ball of fire up in the sky." Songs by indie singers about endless love, happiness, joy, the beauty of life, etc. would fit the bill. [more inside]

Metal-ish cover of Rasputin that ISN'T Turisas?

Hi AskMe. I'm losing my mind. I heard a cover of the Boney M disco song Rasputin on Pandora a few years ago. It came up in rotation a few times, but I can't find a version that matches the one I recall, either on my channel thumbs-up songs or on a Pandora song title search. I can't find it Googling 'Rasputin cover.' It's not the Turisas version, but it's similar. [more inside]

More minimalist/algorithmic/mesmerizing (piano) music please!

With more of both coming up, I'd love to find more similar music that's equally mesmerizing.. Any suggestions?

Joey Jeremiah, Canada's Answer to Bob Dylan?

Am I hearing things, or are the bass parts in Bob Dylan's Up To Me (Scroll down to Track #37 for excerpt) and The Zit Remedy's Everybody Wants Something very similar? And if they are, is it simply that they share a simple do-doo/doo-doo/do-doo/doo-doo rhythym, or is there something more? And, outside of learning to read music or theory, are there resources out there that could help a not-particularly musical person such as myself articulate the similarities that they hear between songs?

Not your everyday drumbeat?

Friends, help me compile a list, would you? I'm looking for pop/rock songs that feature very distinctive beats from the drummer. Anything really ear-catching and creative that departs from more ordinary timekeeping, in some fresh way. As an example, one that falls into that category would be the Zombies' Time of the Season. And please include a YouTube (or other) link if you can, since almost any song ever recorded is now on YouTube. Thanking you in advance.

Help me set up my home stereo so I listen to music more please!

I have all my music on iTunes ( on my iMac). I would like to make it much more accessible to myself and my family 9including my kids (under 10 yr old) at home.

Make my TV a wifi jukebox (difficulty level: nitpicky requirements)

My personal music collection is divided between vinyl records (easily played over the stereo, no problems there) and over 70GB of music mp3s on my laptop.
