Update: The Winner !!!

Hi everyone! Thanks again to everyone who participated. After much deliberation, I have selected the winner!

John Earles
(jearles)

Korpiklaani - Happy Little Boozer

Geeklist Item #7

Simply put, I really enjoy the folk/metal combo. And I don't normally enjoy metal. But this is good stuff!

Congratulations, John!!




This geek list was inspired by Cate108's 'share some funny' geeklist:

http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/51212/post-some-funny-and-...

I'm going to follow in her footsteps and use a similar format.

Name of the Contest: "Post Your Favorite Obscure Music"

Instructions: Give this geeklist a thumbs up and post a song you think most people haven't heard before. It's OK if it's an obscure song by a famous artist or band. Post as many songs as you like! Also, if you can afford it, please tip a little bit of geek gold so that I can award something to the winner! I literally have zero GG so a small tip would be very appreciated (especially by the winner!)

Eligibility: any BGG member (worldwide) who thumbs this geeklist and posts a song.

Prize: The winner will receive some geek gold (of an undetermined amount).
UPDATE: Cate108 just contributed 50 GG!!! Thanks, Cate! The winner will receive 50 GG + whatever is in the tip jar at the end of the contest!!

Winner: I will choose the winner myself, but I will use the number of thumbs to guide my decision.

Deadline: 11:59 PM Pacific Time on February 5, 2010.


Note: The videos I posted may not be the original videos for the songs. This isn't a video contest--it's all about the music!

Definitely not obscure in Taiwan. Maybe a little obscure in the states.

Despite being a fan of all album releases by Genesis I only recently discovered a single during the Peter Gabriel years called Twilight Alehouse.


hmmmm.... I coulda used Twilight Struggle for my board game but then the game title wouldn't be so obscure either.

Here's an obscure song from a relatively obscure artist...

Artist = NoMeansNo
Song = It's Catching Up
Album = Wrong

Here's a live performance:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMme06iJuog

But here's the recorded song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPyAii6f-hc

When I first heard the drums in this song, my jaw hit the floor. Incredible precision and power.

What a fun GeekList this is - I keep coming back to it!

For my latest offering, I'd like to introduce you to two sisters named Bailey and Piper. After a few years of posting songs on YouTube of the two of them singing in the bathroom (and other rooms around the house), they finally achieved a level of popularity that allowed them to release a CD under the band name "Madaket": http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/madaket It's a lot of fun to watch through some of their videos and see how the sisters have grown up over the past few years, although they've been exceptionally talented from day one!

Often I can be found singing Gilbert & Sullivan (no, this isn't me, but I have played this role before):



Thom King - 'My Name is John Wellington Wells', from The Sorcerer


In fact, I am currently rehearsing a different role in this opera, which plays hell with my game-playing time. (But I love it!)

(Again, the live version is a little raw, but still fun.)

If you get a chance, listen to Dr Evil: Doctor of Evil from the same album, In Rock - awesome, and better than any other 'Dr. Evil' themed tune I've heard.
