In this thread, the person above you will post a song for you to listen to. After listening to the song, you get to discuss what you like/dislike about the song. Once you've done that, you get to leave a song for the next person to comment on.

Since I'm the first person to post here, here's a song that I'll leave for someone to listen to.....

Dang, that's a pretty good idea. My music tastes are pretty weird but I'll give it a go. I'm going in blind because while I've heard of Lacuna Coil I don't remember hearing this song.

Right off the bat this gets a point from me as I believe heaven is a lie! But then again, I guess the depends on the interpretation. Does this literally mean heaven, or does it mean one's idea of a personal utopia? Either way, I don't believe in God or heaven and believe that a perfect life is unattainable. So why desire it?

Where it doesn't score a point is the music video itself. (Rather than the song.) Like a lot of music videos it doesn't seem to have much of a purpose. Music videos that follow the narrative that's conveyed in the song's lyrics can be great, but if it's just a bunch of shots of the band I don't find much interesting about it. In these cases I prefer to just watch a still video that displays the lyrics.

The singer has a good voice and the instrumentals are pretty good. It's not the kind of music genre I'd ever listen to, but it wasn't bad.

As for my choice, it's an instrumental song. This time a story is told through the music video, so it's all down to your interpretation.

Good song, but I used to have this on my iPod Nano so it was a blast from the past rather than something new for me! I hadn't seen the music video though. I'm not really one for music videos...I don't like to interpret things or art, if the story isn't readily apparent I tend to consider that as a failure. There are exceptions of course.

To be honest, I got stuck very early on thinking about Botley from Jump Start 3rd Grade, an old PC learning game I played. It's good to see that Botley found a job after his time teaching kids.

I got to reminiscing about my Jump Start game memories, and before I knew it the song was over.

Here's mine. Everyone I know hates it. You don't have to finish it but try to make it halfway. Really whack PS2 game OST. word on the street is that this guy didn't actually know how to compose/read music and used a bunch of audio/voice samples to make this. These days the composer works on the Armored Core series.
