    Despite the self-serving data benders and associated propaganda to the contrary, I am led to believe that there are pockets of organised, highly sophisticated dopers, even within 'new age' cycling teams. Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.

    Canada

    I'll stay within the rules by selecting very popular songs, just ones that I still like. No Rush though, fantastic but too obvious.


    Gordon Lightfoot is, was, and always will be brilliant. A classic Canadian song to honour American men who died in shared waters.


    The Tragically Hip at their best. 16 years pre Katrina, by the way. Around the time I finished high school everybody was playing Up to Here.

    Ukraine.

    Volodymyr Ivasyuk. The cult Ukrainian composer and songwriter/poet from the 70th. Was murdered by the Soviet government in 1977 in the age of 30 (in their ‘official’ version it was listed as ‘suicide’) and after his funeral - here in L’viv - turned into the protest action his songs were forbidden until the fall of ussr. Although usually performed by other musicians his songs fit the rules of this thread perfectly, especially regarding of the lasting impact and patriotic identification (even though these are love songs) and of course it has nothing to do with eurovision/rap crap:

    Volodymyr Ivasyuk – The song will be amongst us (lyrics and music by Volodymyr Ivasyuk)



    Taras Chubay – Waterfall (lyrics and music by Volodymyr Ivasyuk)



    ____________________________________________

    Songs associated with my home city:

    Pikkardiyska Tertsiya – The old tram (Ukrainian song)



    Włóczęgi – Only in Lviv (Polish song)

    I'll gladly abide by those conditions. Just can't decide which version of this song I prefer.

    I like neither of your rules, hitch - is there any special reasoning behind there? Especially the "must be very famous"-rule does not make any sense from my point of view (if it's supposed to be about good music). Also limiting it to special genres is quite blinkered I think

    Im not limiting it to genres, you can post any genre you want. I only said no rap because this is the music section and i dont consider rap to be  music.

    As for being famous, the reasoning behind this, is I wanted to find/remind myself of music one may have already heard, and also search out the songs which countries identify themselves with.

    Also when i meet a person from that country knowing a well known song is a good conversation starter eg with higher iq brazilians Ipanema or lower iq brazilians Ai se eu te pegu

    But since noone is playing by the rules, go ahead, post away whatever non english language song tickles your fancy, but i will give thank yous to nominations which do match the rules.

    sorry Hitch, somehow I try to understand your point of view, but music is something which comes from the heart. By leaving out certain genres a priori and judging by famosity - or even going that far to limit the recognition of certain music to people's IQ - you just close your own mind to the beautiful experience of music

    If yiu go that way then anything can count as music. i could burp and play it on a 3 minute loop and call it music.

    To me for something to be music somebody needs to have taken the trouble to learn how to play a musical instrument and how to sing.

    To use a computer and a talking voice because one hasnt taken the time to develop a musical talent nor ones.voice is to me a shortcut that cuts out the whole process. Its like somebody calling themself proffessor of chemistry because they watched breaking bad.

    Btw my music- non music magiot line isnt as poorly created and fortified as you may think. There was an experiment on spiders some years back ( and spiders evolved audio sensors totally seperately to our own ears) where thry played different types of music to the arachnids. When classical music.was played the spiders.moved towards the speajers and built their webs next to or even on the speakers. When rap was played they not  only didnt move towards the speajers they actually moved away to the other side of the room.

    Nature itself makes a very similar distinction between what is and is not music to myself. ;)

    I think you take a bit too much of the easy way by comdemning all music made using a computer. It takes a lot of skills and also musical talent to so it properly. I also would not regard the computer as the "instrument" itself, it's more like it's offering the possibility of combining different skills and ideas. I don't think you will find many (good) producers which are not extraordinary musicians and do not play at least the drums and/or piano.

    Of course you could download an easy software solution and make a beat in a couple of minutes, but I could also buy myself a fiddle and record a track - it will end up equally bad

    funny thing is most 4/4 electronic music is built on the same music make up as classical

    so when they banned dance music gatherings in the UK the really also banned classic music events as well  ;D

    I just got off the horn with CBSA - you are now banned from entering Canada. Bryan Adams is actually a pretty great talent (actually an even better photographer than songwriter), but that song was a cheese puff written for the charts and not from his heart.

    Other from Belgium's Bobbejaan Schoepen's ik heb me dikwijls afgevraagd, which he also performed in French: Je me suis souvent demandé (covered by French singer: Richard Anthony). He was the first Continental Euro to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.  ;)




    Netherlands:

    Its a sh*t song which means nothing.

     1 verse repeated twice and a chorus about 10 times.
    Chrous - Your gonna kill me (metaphorical), oh if i get you oh if i get you.
    Then the verse goes - Im in a club and the girl walks past, shes beatuful,  so i talk to her.

    Then again the chorus. Your gonna kill me, oh if i get you oh if i get you.

    Brazil  *br



    http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bianca_(cantora)

    "Bianca ... was a singer Brazilian. With a fleeting career, was one of the phenomena of radio in the early '80s and became an icon of a generation of young post- military dictatorship ."

    "The songs, which contained many slang fashion, as "pit", "face" and "crickets" were full of romanticism style Beatles and spicy with a touch of rebellion and existential crisis."

    "Much has been speculated about the whereabouts of Bianca, who since the mid- 80s has completely disappeared from the music scene without a trace. The total anonymity of the singer gave rise to rumors in cyberspace about suicide and overdose of drugs ... However, nothing has been officially confirmed and the fate of the singer remains an intriguing mystery to his legion of fans and admirers."
