    1. A music library covering more than two hundred genres

      This submission showed up on /r/listentothis a couple of weeks ago. I'm reposting it here because it is the finest and most on-point collection of music I have ever encountered. The original post from /u/theamazingsounds is included below.


      Hello again fellow music enthusiasts!

      1 year ago, I made a post about my ongoing project to create a collection with as many genres as possible, aiming to give listeners a convenient way to discover new music. It got many interested and since then more than 50 genres have been added, as well as descriptions for every genre.

      I'm making this post to thank those following already, and am once again open for suggestions and ideas. I also made a subreddit called r/TheAmazingSounds where you can post about music that you want to share with others. It is currently empty but I will try to keep it active and reply often.

      You can find everything on Spotify. It is synced with other services but doesn't convert all songs.

      So, tonight as I was putting my young kid to bed, they listed every one of the places that they desperately want to go to, but can't. It broke me. This playlist is very much still a work in progress, but if you've been curious how things sound in my head when I'm working through some shit, it's a lot like this.

      Videos were selected when possible, and I'm going to warn you: There's a ton of depressing shit in these videos. If you can't handle real videos of violence right now, I'd suggest moving on.

      This playlist is best paired with a strong drink, deep feelings of sadness and anger, and a dash of mental instability.

      Existential Crisis Playlist

      1. Prophets of Rage - Hail to the Chief
      2. KMFDM - Paradise
      3. WAKRAT - Generation Fucked
      4. Straylight Run - Hands in the Sky
      5. Alexisonfire - Sharks and Danger
      6. A Perfect Circle - So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish
      7. Pink Floyd - Mother
      8. William Shatner - You'll Have Time
      9. Monty Python - Galaxy Song

    3. Covers with less than 10k views

      One of the things I've been doing recently is trawling Youtube for cover versions. I really like the less-produced versions, and the "authenticity" of someone just singing a song. I noticed that there are a bunch of covers that just sit there on Youtube with hardly any views.

      So, in this thread it'd be nice if people could post links to the covers they enjoy, and probably also to the original.

      The video, in case you haven't seen it yet.

      WaPo had an interesting breakdown a few days ago on most of the shots in the video and theories as to their meaning that is worth reading.

      However, one thing I noticed they (and most other people so far) missed was that you can see Glover's back in the beginning since he is facing away from the camera and there is clearly no gun in his pockets or in his waistband... so it simply materializes when he reaches behind him after he slowly dances towards his first victim.

      They also don't mention how during the third to last scene everyone screams and scatters even though he is only making a gun shape with his hands which, when contrast against the actual scenes of murder causing no reaction by anyone, says a lot.

      I am also currently addicted to Reaction videos on YouTube of people watching the video for the first time. Peoples' initial shock and their different interpretations of the video are fascinating to watch. In one of them, someone even mentioned something nobody else seemed to notice... that after the first murder, the gun is carried away by someone else with an almost reverence while the body is simply dragged away like garbage and again after the second murder scene as well.

      Anyone else notice any other interesting elements worth noting?
