I watched The Shining a few nights back and thought this was appropriate since this song is played at the end of the movie. Warning this video dose contain some scenes form the movie that are kind of graphic and disturbing in nature and might be not safe for work.

Listening to Barclay James Harvest eyes of the universe on LP. rrrrrggghhhhhn it sounds so good.
Also had fun with a "new" Cd-player (a nineties Yamaha with glorious orange LEDs) which I plugged into the same amp and stereo system I use with my LP player, that way I can compare CD and LP. XD INCOMMING RAMBLE ABOUT SOUND MEDIA!
CDs have an edge over LPs for classical music I think, clearer violins and the silent bits are properly silent (Beethoven's 9th by Karajan recorded by Deutscher Gramofon used for comparison, with both media in mint condition and cleaned. Deutscher Gramofon always offers top-notch recordings of the best artists with the best available sound quality, so if you like classical music these are the guys for you!) . However, for prog-rock, other weird stuff, and metal, the rawer sound of the LPs make it much nicer and punchier (ELO's out of the blue used for comparison. The soft bits sound great on both, but the more intense parts sound better on vinyl).
I think it's probably up to the mastering.
Anyway I have fun with all that.

Found something quite interesting. Here's the Exorcist Theme from 1973.

Here's Tubular Bells from 1972, which I bought for a buck at the fleamarket in one of my let's-buy-music-I-don't-know frenzies. The first minute might remind you of something (live version in this case, unfortunately)

Does it mean the exorcist is tubular? Yes, yes it does.

SO I was watching a satirical series online (it's German TV so it's all in German) and then there was this:
It's renaissance monks singing no woman no cry in Latin to a pope high as balls and it is sung surprisingly well.
