7 Jun 2015, 07:57 by Hollow0neThis is my top 365 tracks (as of January 3rd 2015, according to Last.FM charts). That means a song per day.
Day 145, (shared) 216. position: Mokoma - Valkoista kohinaa (from the album 180 astetta)
Mokoma goes Sepultura! This song probably has the most misanthropic lyrics that Marko Annala has written. Fits the weighty riffs quite nicely.
Day 146, (shared) 216. position: Mokoma - Teon Teoriaa (from the album 120 Päivää)
One of those earlier songs I wish Mokoma played more often. Love the chorus.
Day 147, (shared) 216. position: Kansas - Carry on Wayward Son (from the album Leftoverture)
Catchy, timeless classic. That opening riff is just great.
Day 148, (shared) 216. position: Guns N' Roses - Mr. Brownstone (from the album Appetite for Destruction)
15 May 2015, 05:15 by Hollow0neAlong with my countdown of top 365 songs, I'll be running a band/artist of the week countdown as well. This list is also based on my Last.fm charts: it's my top 52 artists (as of January 3rd 2015).
(Thanks to Supernatural and South Park,) everyone knows the song Carry on Wayward Son, but not that many know whose song it actually is. I think same goes for Dust in the Wind. Well, that is atleast here in my country, things might be different in USA.
I have to admit that even I was introduced to them not that many years ago. Luckily Kansas is pretty easy band to "get" and pretty quickly I was listening to Leftoverture, Point of Know Return and other albums like I've known the band for ages.
I even got a chance to go see them live at Sweden Rock couple of years ago, around the time that I was really getting into them. What a lucky coincidence!
If you are a fan of Rush, Jethro Tull or even Genesis, I recommend Kansas. …
2 Dec 2014, 00:10 by DespicableGypsyThe first 10 are mostly in order of preference, the other 12 is just muddled a lot
1. Carry on Wayward Son-Kansas
It has pretty much everything I love in a song. varied instruments that work, plenty of bass, harmonized vocals and some major skillz.
2. Dragon Slayer-Ninja Sex Party
Everything I love in a song yet again. Danny's voice is beautiful and the amount of harmonization just makes it even better (listen to the acapella version and you will orgasm like immediately). Plus i find it super hot and heaps funny and could listen to it forever. god knows how many times i've listened to it.
3. Let It Go-Frozen Soundtrack
I find it heartbreaking yet inspirational, not to mention beautiful. It would be number one if I could sing it. Damn me being a contralto! not fair! I love all disney music (excluding the morning report from the lion king what a pointless song).
4. Zero-The Smashing Pumpkins
One of the first songs I remember hearing. i've always absolutely adored it. 18 years and counting!
30 Dec 2011, 20:24 by BahkasikaIn this part, I'll discuss albums and tracks on my top lists.
Most listened albums of 2011
Buffyverse rules in this category. Surprise, surprise: Buffy's Once More, with Feeling soundtrack is on top, for the second year in running. BtVS: The Score is third, with BtVS: The Album fourth and Angel: Live Fast, Die Never sixth. Breaking this group of soundtracks are Tori Amos's five-disc epic box set A Piano: The Collection and Eppu Normaali's Mutala. Some real killer albums are next in line: Lost in Space (Aimee Mann), Kun valaistun (Chisu), last year's best album Seili (Jenni Vartiainen), I'm Not Dead (P!nk) and Mud On The Tires (Brad Paisley). Four out of the next five places are taken by the four recent studio albums by Dixie Chicks, showing just how good each one of those is. Paleface's Helsinki-Shangri-La received a lot of plays early in the year, and it certainly deserves a Top 20 spot. Another large box set to make this list is Iron Maiden's The First Ten Years. …

4 Jun 2011, 09:05 by Hollow0neOkay, time for another review of the album of the week. According to my charts on Last.fm, the real album of the week should be Saxon's Very Best of -album, but collections and best of's don't count as proper albums, since they have songs from many albums. Also live albums are out of the question for the same reason. So, as we have set these few groundrules, the album which I've been listening to the most during the timeline of May 23. to 29. is:
Kansas - Leftoverture
Like I suspected last week, Kansas pretty much ruled my charts last week. As I'm heading to Sweden Rock festival next week and they are the main reason why I'm going there, I've been listening to their albums and songs a lot lately. I've also checked their latest setlists from Setlist.fm and noticed that major part of their sets are from this album. And I don't wonder why, it has classics after classics.
I bet that everyone knows the album opener Carry on Wayward Son. Everybody knows this song, but not that many actually know the band who performs it.
14 Apr 2011, 00:45 by earthcrossingThis show has not only reminded me of heaps of songs I already knew I loved but had forgotten, but has introduced me to new stuff I should have found long ago. Oh, and has featured stuff I already remembered and love to pieces! In short, I bloody love the show!! And not just for the eye candy... ahem. ;)
1. Blue Öyster Cult - (Don't Fear) The Reaper
2. Queensrÿche - Silent Lucidity
3. Rush - Working Man
4. Bad Company - Bad Company
5. Kansas - Carry on Wayward Son
and of course the less classic rock features:
1. Soundgarden - Fell on Black Days
2. Alice in Chains - Rooster
12 Sep 2010, 01:23 by DrEfficientThe fall weather's got me thinking. Time to look back and see what I listened to the most in the past year... lets say the top 10 songs. On the computer anyways...
So what did I listen to and why are those songs so damn great?
9. Försvinn Du Som Lyser - 12 plays
These plays came from just recently. I was listening to Visor Om Slutet and thinking much fun it sounds like they were having making it. This song in particularly is extra fun to listen to, and was probably extra fun to make. And sure, it's got the most plays, but the best part of the album is it's not even the one standout track on there.
9. Miss America - 12 plays
I'll start off by saying this would have triple the plays if car music was included. It was only this summer when I really discovered Styx after having mostly ignored them. They wrote some rockin' riffs in the 70s and this song has just one of them.
6. Stairway to the Stars - 13 plays
Another simple rockin' song. …
