Twilight of the Idols, Or, How to Philosophize With the Hammer

This is my number 1 favourite Roxy Music track. Makes me want to wear a tuxedo, smoke a cigarette and look as cool as Bryan Ferry.

I had to prove it. Here’s Roxy Music’s ‘Out Of the Blue’ any uncanny similarity to Coldplay’s ‘God Put A Smile On Your Face’ is completely accidental …

This is one of my favourite Coldplay tracks, not least because it bears an uncanny resemblance to Roxy Music’s ‘Out Of the Blue’. Prove me wrong if you dare …

Some songs and albums have an extra special significance. Coldplay at their stadium rocking best.

'Reach Inside' - This is a jazz house nostalgia moment that brings a smile to my face every time. It never fails to kick every dancer's ass all these years later. Pure class.

Love this nasty bass …

This record has haunted me since its release and always makes me want to get nasty on the dancefloor. Switch and Sinden tear Santigold a new one.

Joni Mitchell ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’ one of my all time favourite albums. Here’s the sublime title track - perfect Sunday night listening.

this makes me dance like a crazy woman. I dedicate this song to my sisters Paula Burdess and Elizabeth Cameron because I know you can both drop to this too.

this is just beautiful.

The Music Written on This Dude's Butt by Hieronymus Bosch from the album: Garden of Earthly Delights


Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.

so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!

in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love

Do artists still pay this much attention to symbolism and detail in their work? Excellent idea here.
