Hey, guys. There are occasions when I happen to run across a song or album that happens to catch my attention enough that I play it on repeat. I thought it might be fun to share such songs with you guys when one strikes my fancy. I don't know how often I'll post--it just depends when I stumble across a gem!

For this one it's "Put Your Money on Me" by Arcade Fire. Not a lyrically complex song per se, but it's simplicity drives a good message home. The music is what caught my attention here. I hope whoever listens enjoys it like I did!

Oh man. "Everything Now" has been one of my favorite albums since it came out a few years ago. (Creature Comfort is so good, and "We Don't Deserve Love" slays me every time it comes on.)

Thank you for sharing. I appreciate it. I wish more people would talk about music on GT.

You're welcome! Yeah, I noticed not a lot of folks on Gametalk don't share music. I think it can be hard to get people's attention for longer than a few minutes...so I've decided to share any "new" music I come across that REALLY sticks out to me, which isn't all that often.

I'm kind of a music snob, so when I think something is REALLY good, it generally is well-received by other lovers of music.

I'm the other kind of snob. When I think something is really good, it's usually the kind of thing that people frown and say "what the fuck are you listening to" when they hear it. But I can usually find a compromise with anyone that I talk to.

The songs I like don't always jive with people. Just "usually". For example, nobody seemed to like Shooting Star by Bag Raiders when I first showed it to them years before it was a meme. I showed my girlfriend the sing Drink by Alestorm, and she didn't care for it. I personally think pirate metal is fuckin' awesome, but everyone has their own tastes.

I don't think I knew of Shooting Star when it was a meme. It's one of my favorites, and only recently learned that it went through such a phase.

Have you listened to the rest of Arcade Fire's "Everything Now" album, by the way?

Not yet! But I will probably go ahead and do so since I really enjoyed The Suburbs album a lot.
