I have a friend who wants to watch some new music videos. He has no access to the internet, but I do. Great! I can help out. Except we have very different tastes in music and he only gets as specific as "like Nicki." He also really likes Rihanna and Beyoncé's more beat-driven songs, La Fouine, and a lot of Nigerian popular music. Can you make suggestions for me? Preferably with links, because I'm on strictly metered internet and can't download a lot of videos to find the good ones.

I know there are songs I want on these playlists that I'm not remembering, and I'm constantly aware that I have blind spots that may be robbing me of perfect songs. Can you help me attack either issue by looking over one or both playlists then suggesting songs to add? [more inside]

I want to get into video making and was wondering where people get their music from. I've noticed that some YouTube partners go to SoundCloud to pick up remixes of licensed songs to get past the copyright infringement--is that okay? [more inside]

Hi Metafilter! Can you ID the song used as background music in this video
for me? I was unsuccessful at Googling it based on the (Spanish?) lyrics. The only phrases I can clearly make out are "esta no voy a perder" and the oft-repeated "Oye!"

My 3yo son memorized a song from a cartoon
on Youtube. He walks around the house singing it all day. We think the song might be Korean, but we're not sure. Is he using actual words or just making sounds? (apologies if this is wildly offensive, my wife and I are just curious).

I'm been using both Google Adwords and a Facebook ad to promote an new album, but I think I'm using weak "keywords". Could I get the Metafilter community to look at a few no budget videos I've made to help me figure out "better" keywords to advertise my music? Or am I just wasting my money? [more inside]

Some of these favorites are within, along with other popular examples of the stripped-down cover trend, but I would appreciate discovering yours as well. [more inside]

What are interesting projects where art meets new (digital/social) technologies?
Like Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir, Youtube Symphony Orchestra, or Google Art Project.

I'm looking for a YouTube video of an orchestra playing an arrangement of Super Mario tracks. On a screen behind them you can see Mario moving through a level, and as he enters different areas the orchestra plays the corresponding music. Does anyone know where I can find this video?

I'm trying to find out:
a) is the song copyrighted?
b) who owns it?
c) will they let me use it? (is this a pipe dream?)
The song is Ice Pick Mike by Lalo Schifrin, and it's on the soundtrack to Bullitt. Totally groovin', BTW. :)

who is the singer or band? I remember seeing a music video on youtube about 8 months ago? in it the female singer is singing while riding a bike the whole time. Behind her, kids on freestyle bikes come out of the woodwork and are doing trick throughout the video.
The song was good. something like modest mouse meets regina spektor on a bike... help me.
