Title: FLY's Magical Mind of Music
Post by: FLYmeatwad on August 16, 2011, 10:03:19 AM
All songs in current round contain explicit material!

Taking a cue from roujin (or blatantly stealing his idea, if you would rather), he's another song of the week poll. Vote, be merry, listen to musics. There will be Youtube links, obvi. Sometimes there will be themes, most of the time there won't be. I'll include the results of past weeks as well!

Songs will occasionally be NSFW, though the majority will be fine to listening to anywhere. But yeah, if that's your thing then just assume they are all NSFW.

This Round's Songs

Charli XCX ft. Lil Yachty - "After The Afterparty" (NSFW) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM33anTtEVE)

DJ Carnage ft. Lil Yachty - "Mase In '97" (NSFW) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-cesyyV7zg)

Chance The Rapper ft. Lil Yachty & Young Thug - "Mixtape" (NSFW) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEn1M2jMZ6A)

Big Baby D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty - "Broccoli" (NSFW) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K44j-sb1SRY)

Post Malone ft. Lil Yachty - "Monte" (NSFW) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NTc21cJjzM)

A$AP Ferg & Lil Yachty - "Terminator" (NSFW) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTKWpgXfliM)

It's dank that Cults are in that game, I'll check it out at some point. Been a while since I purchased a baseball game.

EDIT: That Cults video is my favorite music video of the year, I think.

Damn, is "Round and Round" the most re-used song title ever?

There's a new poll coming soon! It may even be a head 2 head one!
Title: Re: FLY's Magical Mind of Music
Post by: FLYmeatwad on March 03, 2013, 12:38:36 PM
New poll is up! The kings of mindie, Passion Pit, clashed with a similarly minded Purity Ring last year for the higher spot on FLY's master list, and now they have both added some hot rappers to some of the best tracks from their albums. But only one can emerge the victor. You decide!

I don't know where I'm voting yet. The Passion Pit song is better than the Purity Ring song, but I think Danny's verse is better than Juicy J's. Tough match up!

This is a good thing. What other songs of his would you recommend?
Title: Re: FLY's Magical Mind of Music
Post by: FLYmeatwad on March 21, 2013, 09:04:28 AM
It seems his most beloved is his "Limit To Your Love" cover (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOT2-OTebx0), though I think the two (now one) best songs on his debut album were "Lindisfarne" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOKXHzL6UVs) (which combines album cuts parts I and II (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bsDXLluUGM) in to one song) and "I Never Learnt To Share" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSvb_jGwQ7s) probably.

My favorite Blake songs are from his EPs though. Probably "A Case Of You" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iqw4QBjXuc), a Joni Mitchell cover, and "CMYK" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqScKIZaurE) which is more traditional dubstep I guess.

His remix of that Lil Wayne song "A Milli" makes a Lil Wayne song not terrible (really good actually) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udB6m3uuDOM), which is impressive on its own.

The album this song is on also has had other songs leak, but I haven't listened to them yet in an attempt to preserve a complete experience when the album releases on April 5th or around then. Or leaks before that, I reckon.

It's just such an obnoxious song.  I can't articulate it very well... the jokey lyrics, the staccato rhythms of the vocals, the endless cultural references, terrible lines like "I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral" or (god help me) "I have a history of taking off my shirt".  It's completely soulless and pointless.

Other songs that fill me with rage:

Deep Blue Something - "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
Billy Joel - "We Didn't Start the Fire"
4 Non Blondes - "What's Up"

There's more, but fortunately they're not coming to mind right now.

Undeniably, Kanye West's latest album is an artistic triumph and easily the best album released since West's previous My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which is also probably the greatest album ever recorded. With about two weeks since its leak the time to begin figuring out the best of what is probably going to easily be the year's best album by a country mile (judging by stuff released so far, none of which comes close to approaching the artistic superiority of Yeezus) has arrived.

I put up what seem to be the consensus 'best' songs on Yeezus. Still not sure if I agree, but I'll poll the entire album in its own thread eventually.

yeah, I kinda feel BotL is almost too easy. Gotta go with BS though - production is great, one of the tracks where the flow is solid all the way thru. B2 is probably my least favorite. Sounds like it could've been on Late Registration, nothing new or even really interesting about it except the line
"After all these long-ass verses
I'm tired, you tired, Jesus wept"

which is pretty great.

The time is near...
Title: Re: FLY's Magical Mind of Music
Post by: FLYmeatwad on February 02, 2017, 12:05:27 AM
The time is here!

This round we look back at what was, undeniably, the year of Lil Yachty (really it was once again the year of Young Thug, but for the sake of the poll let's start with Yachty and give him his due). From the Lil Boat mixtape to the slew of features, it was a big year for #SailorGang. Here's the thing though: despite liking Lil Boat a ton, I found his other full on projects to be not nearly as great. And I know they are different, but you put him next to someone like Lil Uzi Vert and you know I keep those Uzi tapes in rotation (maybe I just love Philly that much?). Regardless, despite serving heaters, there are a ton of songs where Yachty completely steals the songs, and here we have the best of the best. All songs contain explicit content, btw.

So, if you will, let's all try and figure out what his best feature of the year was, because inquiring minds must know! I'll run through the nominees.

Charli XCX ft. Lil Yachty - "After The Afterparty" - One of FLY's biggest regrets was not going to Charli's first ever show in Philly. It was at the North Star Bar, there were only like 15 people there, and she hung out with people at the bar after the show. Tickets were so cheap too. She even talked to me on Twitter! Then that "I Don't Care" song happened and the rest is history. I can't wait for her new album, I still love you Charli, bb, in another life that night was magical for us.

DJ Carnage ft. Lil Yachty - "Mase In '97" - DJ Carnage seems like he brings the heat. This is a controversial pick because who really listens to just beats and shit? Isn't this 'just a Yachty song' FLY? Maybe. I actually listened to the DJ Snake album a lot, and it probably would have been even cooler if Yachty did something like he did here.

Chance The Rapper ft. Lil Yachty & Young Thug - "Mixtape" - Loved Acid Rap, love Coloring Book less so, still want to see Chance The Rapper live regardless. Either way, you know how pumped I was when this album came out? Stoked. Then I saw it started with Kanye, but he didn't rap, so that was a bummer. I looked through the track list though, and that name caught my eye, and I knew...Young Thug was about to crush it. And he does, kind of, but Lil Boat steals the show, no question about it. Is this perhaps the best verse on Chance The Rapper's new album?

Big Baby D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty - "Broccoli" - I should listen to this album, tbh, but every time I think about doing that I go back and tell myself, "FLY, why don't you just listen to 'Cash Machine' a million more times?" because that song is one of the year's best. This one is close behind in terms of heat, and the guest spot is a huge part of that. Seriously though, that "Cash Machine." I do love it when it talks to me.

Post Malone ft. Lil Yachty - "Monte" - I have no strong feelings on Post Malone one way or another, even if I feel like he's maybe at least a step or two removed from Asher Roth and whatever else frat rap has latched on to these days, but here's the more interesting tidbit about this selection: this project and song released the same day Chance The Rapper dropped his project. And while there's no question which entire work is better, at the risk of swaying votes (assuming anyone has made it this far), Yachty may actually crush it even harder on this song than he did for Chancellor.

A$AP Ferg & Lil Yachty - "Terminator" - So the video says this song actually features A$AP Ferg, but when I listened to it, it was introduced as a Ferg song with Yachty, and in reality I think it's probably a collaborative track that either could pick up on, in much the same way Young Thug claimed "Pick Up The Phone" when it was very likely meant to exclusively be a Travis Scott song. Regardless, it had to be included. Listen, and you'll know why.

Happy voting!
