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!

A little more mainstream by this list's standards. This song appeared on the Rain Man soundtrack, but most people haven't a clue about this band. (Please pardon the lousy video quality) They also had a song in George of the Jungle.

Perhaps my all time favorite band. If you like smooth jazz, take a listen. Wait for the chorus. . . it's worth it.

My understanding is that it was originally an old sailor's limerick (you know AABBA).

Very cheery, very lewd, very funny.

Here are three videos from a now defunct band, Chore, from Dunville Ontario. I'm very disappointed that I never got to see them perform live. The music would best be qualified as hard rock, I suppose.

Minuit is a great break-beat band that has some following in this country and I believe some following in Europe too. This is their latest single which is about New Zealand. Aotearoa is name that the native Maori had for the country before the Europeans colonised it. Aotearoa mean Land of the Long White Cloud.

When Minuit were producing the video for this song they asked fans to send in pictures of themselves being New Zealanders. My girlfriend sent in a picture of me and so I am in this video. I appear for an instance in the centre bottom at about 3:10 in, I'm lying on my back in a bay window with a cat on my chest.



Another song that I love and has to be fairly obscure even in New Zealand is High Pressure by a band named National Anthem. I love the base line. I believe that this was only ever released on vinyl and cassette so it would be hard to track down now. I really need to get round to ripping my version from vinyl so I can listen to it on the iPod.

I am not sure if this qualifies as 'obscure', for it was up in the charts in the early 70s. Anyway, seeing that FUNK was a bit underrepresented in this list, I thought I'd add this and provide two links, one to a live (TV studio?) performance by the band and the second some guy's hilarious video clip of the song.

Enjoy:

Again probably low on the obscurity scale, although this version is actually quite difficult to find, unlike Max Romeo's hit signle of the song (produced by the Upsetter).

Does not matter, the obscure footage of the man himself is priceless...

Enjoy

Exuma sweet voodoo music:


Lucio Battisti Italian world Psych Rock:


Ofege Nigerian Afrofunk:


Tonto's Expanding Headband early electronic music:


Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, obscure old psych band:


The Adverts great old punk band. Somehow they didn't make it when The Buzzcocks & The Damned did:


Free Design Hi-Fi EZ listening band. The craziest rebellious song made:


Roy Harper (People know of him from Led Zeppelin, but don't usually know him):



Robbie Basho is like Yma Sumac/Antony singing over beautiful 12 string guitar:


I'm bummed that I can't find Gene Clark's Strength of Strings on YouTube.
