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!

Obviously, you all know Pink Floyd--but you might not know this early song from Obscured By Clouds. I've loved Pink Floyd for years but I don't know their earlier stuff very well. This song is outstanding!

In 2007, my dad passed away. He was 84 so he had a good run. This song, which I only recently discovered, reminds me of him.

If they sound kind of System Of A Down-ish, that's because Serj Tankien is their producer. They have some really good stuff, and they're working on a new CD (this is from their second CD). Also check out "Dance of the Manatee", "Kyla Cries Cologne", and "The Wife, the Kids and the White Picket Fence".

I've been a big fan of the Comedian Harmonists ever since I saw the movie about them in 1999.



They were absolutely huge in the early 1930's but were forced to break up because the Reichsmusikkammer didn't appreciate that half the troupe were Jewish.

This is a song about the Sullivan Brothers from Waterloo IA that all served on the same ship in WWII and were all lost in the same battle. Their deaths were responsible for the Sole Survivor Act. This song always gives me an emotional response. I enjoy this acoustic version more than the album release, but I will post the album release below.
