    1. What are some songs that use repeating lyrics as the central motif?

      An example that I have come across is The Dear Hunter - What Time Taught Us, where after the first verse, the lyrics repeat until the end: Love you crawl, it's all coming back now But the thing of...

      An example that I have come across is The Dear Hunter - What Time Taught Us, where after the first verse, the lyrics repeat until the end:

      Love you crawl, it's all coming back now
      But the thing of it is, that it never really was
      Intuition never suited, so I kept it outside

      [Repeat Start]
      Be alive, cause nothing lasts for good or like you thought it would
      Nothing's as it seems or what you thought it'd be

      [Repeat 5x]
      Alive, cause nothing lasts for good or like you thought it would
      Nothing's as it seems or what you thought it'd be

      So what are some songs that you know, that do the same (or a similar) thing? Doesn't have to be exact repetition, if there are small variations in the lyrics that's cool too.

    2. Songs that evoke a specific emotion or impression in you or in general that you like?

      Based on the hype song thread recently posted here.

      Particular to me:

      Rakim: The saga begins (Instrumental): Maybe it's just me but this instrumental has always given a very sad, 'navigating a crisis' vibe, which I find really compelling now.

      Vaporwave rickroll: A Mashup of the vaporwave song and never gonna give you up; which thanks to this random video I now associate with broken expectations and melancholy.

      Twisted by Kevin Macleod: The march in the song kinda feels like marching into the unknown, regardless if what you find.

      Less specific to me however:

      Eminem: It's OK (instrumental): kind of the same thing as the saga begins, except the full song is kinda like that too.

      Jazz liberatorz -Speak the language

      MF - Doom: Great day: 2 songs that give me a somewhat chill/day-to-day vibe most lo-fi songs aim to capture.

      Gran Turismo 4 OST: An old Bassman...: This either is or should be the anthem of existential dread.

      Diário de um detento (instrumental): This is less a song that feels like navigating a crisis but just kinda living through it without much thought other than a mild irritation.

      NIN: Downward spiral: Very aptly named.

      respite. - blackdeku: The word 'resignation' comes to mind.

    3. What's your "hype song"?

      Short of drugs, I find music to be one of the most effective ways of inducing an emotional state on demand. If you want to hype yourself up, get that adrenaline flowing, what's your go-to song?...

      For me, it's definitely DJ Mehdi - Signatune (Thomas Bangalter edit). Hard-hitting French House. It's repetitive and brutal, and not at all what I would choose for a cozy, relaxed listening experience. But god damn if it doesn't get the adrenaline flowing.

      What's yours?

      This week let's share some of those favorite tracks that you don't usually advertise to other people - the guilty pleasures. The ones that tend to make music critics and other music lovers cringe, and garner raised eyebrows from your friends and family. We've all got them hiding in our playlists.

      Thanks @ainar-g for the topic suggestion. Feel free to suggest topics for upcoming threads in the comments, and happy listening. :)

    5. ~music Weekly Music Tracks Thread 1 - Uplifting Earworms

      Some people have mentioned they'd like to have some sort of weekly track-sharing thread, so let's have a little fun and find some good music in the process.

      Everybody's got that playlist somewhere with all of your favorite earworms - the songs you put on repeat to the point where you annoy the hell out of everyone else in the room because you love them so much. Let's collect some of those earworms here and see what we can come up with.

      In particular, let's go for the uplifting kind - feel good music. When the thread settles down I'll pull these all together in a nice playlist and share that here as a separate link submission.

      Any time period, any genre, any style, popular, obscure, or even your own music, it's all good - just as long as it's positive energy and you can't stop spinning it. If you're on mobile, don't worry about making it into links, others can linkify it for you (and eventually, Tildes can do that automatically to make this all easier in the future). Share as many as you've got. If you've already got a playlist like this for yourself, you can share that too. ;)

      Oh, and don't worry about nebulous 'standards' or if people will like it. If you like it, that's all that matters. Don't overthink it!

      Edit: Almost forgot, feel free to make suggestions for the topics of upcoming share threads in the next few weeks!
