Praise hymns for atheists, agnostics, pantheists, and freethinkers?

Could some MeFites recommend music that might be considered praise hymns for atheists, freethinkers, etc.; that is, emotive songs with recognizable, traditional melodies and lyrics that can be sung in a group setting? Die Gedanken sind frei, It Ain't Necessarily So, and certainly John Lennon's Imagine are a few examples of what I'm trying to get at. Thoughts?

Help me find this song, The Pulse edition

I was driving a rented van home about an hour ago and put on satellite radio, station 15, the pulse. A song came on, something like: Break, break, let the world fall off your shoulders. At first it sounded like lifehouse but then, near the end, a bit like dauhtry. It is not The Fray, Break Your Plans, but the melody in the word Break is similar.

Chilled Out pop songs for a summer mix.

I'm looking for pop songs -- dance or hip-hop -- that have the same kind of chilled out almost-but-not-quite-90s-euro-house vibe as Ne-Yo - Closer, Jhene Aiko - The Worst. The songs should have kind of a relaxed vocal, washed out synths, subtle guitar and/or piano, and an easy groove. I'm especially looking for songs from the past 5 years. (and not Daft Punk).

English-language song with the same tune as Les Plaisirs de la Table?

Help Identifying a Song!

I'm looking for help identifying a song I heard earlier today. I don't have a lot to go on -- I only heard the last 30 seconds or so on the radio at a store. It was jangly and reminiscent of the Susanna Hoffs / Matthew Sweet cover albums. It sounded like a woman and a man harmonizing (but could possibly have been two women) and was upbeat. The last line ended with something like "...to make up for all you left behind", and the song ended abruptly with no fade out.

the still, small tone of disquiet

A soft, sustained high note floats over a musical texture. The music moves on underneath (slow, sad, troubled, tense - anything but happy examples) while the high note continues, insistently. Help me (re)find examples of this trope in pieces of classical music and solve something that's been needling me for a long time. [more inside]

What happened to music recording dates?

Being a fan of music, I've noticed most pop and rock from the 1960s and 1970s often carried a recording date of each song in the liner notes. For instance, Elton John's Tiny Dancer shows a recording date of 9 August 1971. However I almost never see music from 1980 onward carrying any recording dates at all (with a few exceptions such as Prince and Tom Petty's material). Is this information actually printed somewhere in the trade publications, or is it simply not tracked anymore by most studios?

Mr. B♮

In recent years, I've grown uncomfortable with sight-reading lots of flats and naturals, especially in chords, and with reading notes above and below the staves. This is limiting my ability to sit down and play anything on the piano. What are some good pieces and exercises that help a person regain general mastery in this area?

Tell me about remastered audio in layperson's terms.

Lately I've been seeing a lot about music converted to a 432Hz format, but very little about why and how, exactly, it's superior. Add that to the huge amount of "remastered" music I see on Spotify when I look up an older album, and I'm confused about why it's necessary to remaster. What's so bad about the un-remastered audio? Are the reels literally degrading? Why is simple digitization inadequate? What, exactly, happens when an audio engineer goes in to remaster a track? And, if I might as well get my money's worth, how can I notice and appreciate the superiorities in remastered and/or 432 Hz audio?

I want to talk about music like I was a teenager again.

Lately I've been digging through a wealth of new-to-me Japanese bands and getting into music in a way I haven't really done in a long time. I realized this was largely because I'd stumbled upon a bunch of places that discuss JPop and JRock like this ginormous Popjustice thread, full of people who obsess over the latest bands and new music videos and whatnot. I also realized that I don't have anything like this for other music I listen to. So where do I go to discuss the other music I like? [more inside]

How can I find out the time signatures of a diverse group of songs?

In preparation of my MeFi Swap playlist, I'd like to cull through the massive list of possible songs I've generated by sorting them by tempo. I'd like to do this without manually listening to songs to compare them to one another (partially because I don't think I'd be particularly good at it).

This isn't my music

I normally listen to podcasts streamed from my iPhone 5 to my car over bluetooth or occasionally via USB. A few times, I've plugged in the phone only to have it start playing a random track, one which I have never downloaded and which (I have confirmed by searching on my phone and on a synced computer) is not in my iTunes music library. I don't think it's through iTunes radio, either, as the songs do not appear in my radio history and are unlikely to be generated by the stations I have developed. Where are these songs coming from??? This morning it was something by Of Montreal, if that's helpful.

What's Max/MSP and why would you want (or not want) to learn it?

What is the relationship of using this program to learn electronic music versus using Ableton, Reason, Logic, ProTools, C-Base, or any of the other common, commercial programs people in the music business use? Is there any advantage for a student to take this Max/MSP academic electronic music course if his thing is making beats with Reason at this point?
