Earworms

Right. So, a while back I mentioned that my playlist is a mere six songs played over and over. Now, I have finally figured out how to set up an account with a file-sharing service, so I can pass these songs on to you! Since I'm really only going to use the service to send out a single 21.2MB file, I feel rather silly for doing it. However, I think the effort will be worth it if anyone else enjoys the music.

The Playlist! (preview links provided when possible)

A warning: half of the songs are chiptunes. As a result, they have a much harsher sound than most people are used to. Hopefully this does not dissuade you from listening, as they are incredibly enjoyable upbeat songs that I use to remove earworms.

1. I, Cactus - "Bamboo Cactus"
Now, the term 'ZOMG BSET SONGG EVAR!' is thrown around a lot these days. I wish that I could call this the best song in existence, but I have not heard every other song yet so I cannot claim it objectively. However, of all the music that I listen to, this one resonates with me the most. There's just something about it that sends me into a state of bliss.

2. Psilodump - 'låtsades krama'
I really like the instrument choice in this song, since it reminds me of the music in the 'Æon Flux' animated series. Of course, I use the word 'instrument' very loosely, because this song (like all the others on this list) was created entirely without the use of physical instruments. Yay computer synthesis!

3. Factor6 - Flimbo's Quest
This one requires left and right channels to hear properly, because otherwise you'll only hear half of the music. It's short, it's quirky, and it's apparently a remix of the theme song from an old C64 game by the same name. I think it sounds best in headphones, but I think that of almost all of the songs here. Of course, with these headphones everything sounds awesome.

4. Bit Shifter - Reformat the Planet
Much faster than the previous entry, which provides a nice contrast. This song is one of the reasons that I no longer listen to music whilst I drive, since I cannot seem to regulate my speed effectively. Of course, the same issue occurs with all music past 150BPM for me. So, no DDR music either. Fortunately, I am not confined to my car at all hours, so I can listen just fine at home.

5. Phlogiston - Cyber Axe Café
I don't know why, but this just reminds me of a pulp detective story in a cyberpunk world. I see a hard-bitten detective, refusing to change his ways. Bottle of whisky in his desk, .38 special in his shoulder holster, rotary telephone on the desk (all despite it being the year 20XX). Makes me want a trenchcoat and a fedora, which is always a good thing. I might have to write a detective story now. Too bad I don't know how to create a convincing mystery.

6. Windows Medley
Yeah. I have no idea where I got this, but I know it was freely offered by the artist because I have it. Interesting note: This song was created using nothing but sound effects from various Windows operating systems. While this song does benefit from having stereo audio, it doesn't suffer too terribly much without it. Again, my headphones Rock.


So, now that I've given as much a preview as I can, here are the songs. Hopefully you enjoy, and if you have any earworms that you listen to on purpose I would love to know what they are. Goodnight everybody, and stay safe out there.
