Music in films - is it possible to get a positive ID on a short segment?

The incidental music in a specific scene of Only Lovers Left Alive by Jim Jarmusch sounds a lot like the first half minute of something I have heard before, but it's not listed in the soundtrack. Is it possible to get a definitive answer on whether it's the same thing or it just sounds similar? [more inside]

This rock chick needs more rock chicks to listen to.

I realized recently that a good 90% (at least) of the music I like features male singers. Which then led me to realize that I have fairly specific requirements/tastes when it comes to female singers. Help me find more women who rock! [more inside]

Pick me up (with music)

Some songs really give me a lift. Examples are: Here comes the sun - The Beatles I can see clearly now - Johnny Nash (Your love keeps lifting me) Higher and higher - Jackie Wilson Perhaps there's an element of contrast in the lyrics that appeals to me, maybe it's just the tune. I don't know, to be honest. So, Hivemind, songs in a similar vein? What do you recommend?

Is there a way to ditch the album cover view in Music app on my iphone?

Looking for timestretching software that supports variable tempo curves

I'm looking for an audio timestretching tool that allows me to vary the compression/expansion amount over time. In other words, I'd like to be able to draw a tempo "curve" for the input file—say, starting at −8% speed and remaining there for the first minute and twenty seconds; then gradually increasing speed so that it reaches +12% at 5:33; then remaining steady at +12% for the remainder of the track. Help? [more inside]

Know any good instrumental workout music?

I've been flirting with weightlifting on and off for awhile and figure with New Years' right around the corner there are plenty of people in the same boat of "this is the year I get abs!"

Software for jamming along with on guitar, with tampura?

I play solo guitar, and had great fun jamming along to a tampura, which is an indian drone machine. I'm wondering if there is any software that can replicate this sound, or perhaps an album with 'very' minimal production in a single key. I'm particular interested in playing celtic music, and perhaps the blues also if a chord sequence facility exists? I'm aware there are some complex 'band in a box' midi sequencers that can do this, but I'm looking for a simple solution with high quality looping droney sounds with some organic sounding variance.

Why does dropping the 5th sound nice?

When you make a 7th chord, it's common to drop the fifth. We're told it "sounds better," apart from fingering considerations. Why? What is is about the fifth that doesn't go so well when the 7th is in there too?

Songs for when the boyfriend is away. "Home is wherever I'm with you..."

My boyfriend is away and I'm making a playlist of poppy songs about love that are either cheery (& uptempo) or lovely/sweet (& understated) without being "too much" of a good thing. Currently have two songs: I wouldn't dance and Home. Nothing over-the-top (no Whitney Houston or other full-lung songstresses, nothing overproduced). Any decade is fine by me. Unfortunately, I don't have much happy music and I've run out of songs already (and one of my two songs is already leaning heavily towards sad/wistful!). Any help?

Looking for good spacey music streams

Long story short - diagnosed with ADHD, went on Adderall, changed my life, and I've found that I'm particularly productive if listening to non-lyrical, somewhat unpredictable/atonal music in my headphones. My go-to web streams are Soma.FM's Space Station Soma and Deep Space One, but both of these stations often feature music with vocal interludes or samples. These distract me a bit, as well as making me laugh, because the interludes are often quite hilariously stereotypical (reminiscent of Strong Bad's electronic classic "The System Is Down"). So basically, I'm looking for web streams of spacey music without vocals. Any ideas?

Rap song on bandcamp with Vanilla Ice sample - Alright stop

Longest of long shots but does anybody recall hearing a rap/hiphop song on bandcamp with a Vanilla Ice sample? The beat may have had a bit of the "under pressure" bass line and some hand claps. About 3 times through the song they'd throw the vanilla ice sample in from "Ice Ice Baby" and right when the sample said ".....alright stop" the beat would cut out for a few seconds and then start back up.

Turn up the music: rent vs. buy speakers for a party

I've got a house party coming up in a couple weeks. I will be playing downloaded, not great quality mp3s from a laptop via Winamp (please assume this setup cannot be changed/improved). Should I rent a standing speaker, or buy something suitable from a store like Best Buy? I am not looking to crank the music super loud, but it there will be dancing and I want the music heard. Details: party to happen on main floor - open concept, approx 45 people, detached house. Minimal room for speakers. Simple set up desired. Budget - around $200. Location - Toronto

What is the name for this music scale?

Trying to find if this minor scale has an actual name to it: the intervals are 1, 2, b3, #4, 5, 6, 7. In the key of C, the pitches would be C D Eb F# G A B C. I've been doing some research and the closest results I can find are either melodic minor (C D Eb F G A B) without the augmented 4th or the Hungarian minor/gypsy scale (C D Eb F# G bA B) which has a lowered sixth compared to my example. Is there a succinct scale name or mode that applies to my example, or can it only be described in terms relative to another scale? [more inside]
