Ever noticed how so many hit pop songs seem to use the same four chords?

…including the Double Rainbow song.
My wife’s taste in music is far more hardcore than mine.
Years ago, I introduced her to Modest Mouse and the Shins.
So, then, she played for me the guitar she bought for the sole purpose of learning how to play Until it Sleeps by Metallica.

The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra invites musical fans of Doctor Who to take part in an online collaborative celebration of Murray Gold’s music. Participants submitted recordings from late Spring through to early Summer.
PLEASE NOTE: Before anyone asks, no, I’m afraid I can’t give you sheet music so your school orchestra or similar can play the music. This is for copyright reasons.
I will ignore any such requests. Thank you for understanding!
Arranged and co-ordinated by Stephen Willis
Assistant Co-ordinator: Robin LaPasha
List of participants:
Thanks to Danny Stewart for Delia Derbyshire sample in intro.
The next piece will be “This Is Gallifrey / Vale Decem”. To take part, look out for instructions in the upcoming advertisement! :)
Thanks to all participants!
The oboe part is my favourite. Probably because I am an oboist. Or at least I used to be.
Smashing Pumpkins - “Today”
When was the last time you saw this video?
Loved this song. It has been many, many years.
NERD ALERT! Okay, admittedly I shouldn’t be so excited about this, but just watch this video of a new iPad app that displays your iTunes music library as a 3D galaxy! This blows any previously created iTunes visualizer out of the water, ocean, and planet— literally. If you were to project this at a party, your friends might even stop dancing just to look at it. It’s Friday. Get your geek on!
Planetary, a free iPad app from the data-artists at Bloom, is jaw-droppingly, eye-poppingly gorgeous. It analyzes your iTunes music library and visualizes it as a 3D galaxy, where artists become stars that form constellations, albums are planets orbiting those stars, and individual tracks are moons that spin around the planets. It’s “music of the spheres” made stunningly literal. But according to Bloom, it’s so much more than that.
