A Song You Discovered Today

Thread starter #1
In an effort to introduce people to nice/artistic music they they may be missing out on:

* Name a song you recently discovered and really like. Something you think is exceptionally good.

* Only one song per person per day. So think carefully before posting :p

* Always post the genre and make sure its accurate.

Here we go:
Dream Theater - Count of Tuscany
Progressive Rock - Lots of transitions; Various styles; Starts of pretty heavy becomes nice and melodious (after around 10:00).
Like the old DT and not like the crap they put out in the last few albums.

Discovered this on my ipod last week.

Tommyknocker - Twist

Hardcore. Vocal samples from Korn - Twist. Absolutely banging tune.

Listen to with some decent speakers/headphones as it has very heavy bass and distorts on crappy speakers.

Its 3:00 A.M. New day, new song. Just heard this randomly on my playlist. Dunno how I didn't notice it before cos always make it a point listen to every song when I obtain a bunch of them so I find ones I like.

Simon & Garfunkel - Late In The Evening (Concert At Central Park)
Unlike their usual stuff. Lot more lively. Has a nice trumpet bit in the middle at around 3:40.

Don't think the video is from the Central Park recording.

Saw some kids at the bowling alley hop out of their cars and start dancing to this. Pretty funny how fast the crowd formed.

Anyways discovered Rise Against not too long ago (sad, I know)
Really like this song:
The Good Left Undone - Rise Against

It's classified as Melodic Hardcore and/or Punk Rock. If you haven't listened to any Rise Against, I recommend you pick up both Appeal to Reason and The Sufferer & The Witness

It wasn't exactly today, but recently I discovered I Love the Bloody Beetroots by The Bloody Beetroots (I know, haha). It's electronic. I fell in love with it as soon as the main riff started. While not groundbreaking, it's still original in terms of electronic, IMO.

Owl City - Fireflies.

Ambient/electronic/pop. Sounds just like The Postal Service, only happier. This song is just so clean sounding and happy, and it's catchy even if the lyrics are strange and forgettable.

Song: The Grand Vizier's Garden Party
Artist: Pink Floyd
Genre: Avant-garde

It's split into three parts: Entrance, Entertainment, Exit. It's pretty pretentious, but in a good way xD.

Muse - Uprising
The download said Alternative - Matt's got a deeper voice, chanting and the synths! think Dr. Who ;) I like it, maybe not as good as an album opener, but still good.

Anchor & Braille - Summer Tongues

The album this song is in. Is a GREAT record. Top 10 of the year definitely. It's very mellow. Great for fall music listening.

Bloc Party - One More Chance (Alex Metric Remix)

Electro house. Alex Metric is one great producer and this remix really shows his talent.
