EvlKeith's Festive 50 2012 (40-31)

Here we go with the next ten entries in this year's Festive 50, from 40 all the way down to 31.

40. Solar Sailer (Ki:Theory's Lay Our Bodies Down Remix) - Daft Punk - Ki:Theory Remix
I've got a suspicion that this is remixed from a track on the Tron Legacy soundtrack but seeing as though I can't be bothered to watch it, I can't be 100% sure.

39. Fashion - By A Thread - Revelation Records Crash Course
Another one that's a tad too catchy for me.

38. Totally Natural - ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Madonna
Normally they're dependably average, but this album is strangely below average. Disappointing.

37. Dinner for One - Amity in Fame - Dinner for One
How can you resist a video where people get dressed up in animal costumes?

36. Not Again - Staind - Roadrunner Records - Amazon Sampler Part 2
A portion of proper rock.

35. Higher Learning - Down To Nothing - Revelation Records Crash Course
A portion of shouting.

34. This Song: For The True And Passionate Lovers Of Music - Shai Hulud - Revelation Records Crash Course
And a side dish of screamo shouting.

33. Love Scientific - Bit Funk - Love Scientific
A change of style with this one and the first dance based entry this year.

32. Dear Good Man - L'antietam - family
This is almost the complete opposite of a dance track with virtually no discernible beat. Good stuff.

A fantastic sugary treat to end the evening, this was one of the outro songs on the excellent Bleach.



  1. Assessment of 40-31

    40. Solar Sailor - inoffensive and agreeable enough 6/10
    39. By A Thread - Sounds a bit old school 7/10
    38. And you will know us - Fair to middling 4/10
    37. Amity in Fame - Like the video more than the song 6/10
    36. Staind - Too standard rock for me - 4/10
    35. Down to Nothing - Too shouty for me 4/10
    34. Shai Hulud - Too shouty for me 3/10
    33. Bit Funk - Pleasant and relaxing 6/10
    32. L'antietam - Too shouty again 3/10
    31. Yui - The pick of this bunch and I sometimes find myself humming it 8/10

    Only 2 in full scale like territory, but nothing I flick. 20%

    1. So you're not keen on shouting then...
