(Saturday Night And) Sunday Morning by MajorDundee

(Saturday Night And) Sunday Morning is an irreverent dancy Eurodisco remix of Sunday Morning, the Velvet Underground song.

European Son by criticalbill

European Son is a slowly shifting and a bit noodly and loopy and fiddly bit of music, with more noise and droning than usual for this podcast. It’s part of the Music Challenge; here’s the original, by the Velvet Underground.

Juicebox Hustler by god particle

Juicebox Hustler samples the vocals of Rick Ross’ Hustlin,’ and adds the backing of a happy poppy techno song.

I missed Hustlin’ the first time around, so I was more familiar with “Everyday I’m Shufflin’,” from the more popular LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem, which came out in December 2010, over a year after Juicebox Hustler.

Venus in Furs by dagosto

Venus in Furs is a mellow and jazzy cover of the droning Velvet Underground song. The instrument reminiscent of a steel drum or a xylophone is the mbira, which is new to me.

This is the first of the the Velvet Underground covers Music Challenge (playlist). You’ll be hearing a lot more from this challenge this week.

The Plan by Baby_Balrog

The Plan is an upbeat bluegrass song, which sounds like it was an utter blast to record.

Island Party by CarrotAdventure

Island Party is a happy and bouncy synthpop / chiptune track!

Mss Ffct by nthdegx

Mss Ffct is sort of an unconscious cover of a Mass Effect theme song – I’m sure I missed it as I glanced around Youtube. Anyway. This has the atmospheric drawn-out synths, something like a theremin. There’s a nice groove to the beats, and multiple layers of noodly synths.

Snow Cone, Faux Cone, Bro Cone by CarrotAdventure

Snow Cone, Faux Cone, Bro Cone is a bouncy little chiptune – a synthpop tune with cheesy synths. It makes me happy!

Excellent Unicorn by CarrotAdventure

Excellent Unicorn is a dancy synthpop song, with noodly synths on an arpeggiator.

Oh Ma Gad Yall by tehloki

Oh Ma Gad Yall is a techno song with sorta catchy lyrics, mostly contained in the title.

And that’s tehloki’s last song for now!

Looking at Things, Doing Stuff by dagosto

Looking at Things, Doing Stuff is a quiet poppy rock song, with a chill desert atmosphere to the guitar.

Silver Machine by billieraymartin

Silver Machine is an electro cover of a Hawkwind song, done by DJ Hell, featuring Billie Ray Martin.

Happy Pi Day!

sing for him by greenish

sing for him has a lovely and warm atmosphere; it’s a hymn, with an organ and a guitar providing backing for her vocals.

Arms and Hands by Karlos the Jackal

Arms and Hands is an indie pop song, with an accordion and lots of keyboards.

Unrecognisable-lullejah by Admira

Unrecognisable-lullejah is just, you know, this classical guitar piece.

Okay, yeah, maybe it continues Hallelujah Week.

Hallelujah! (So Very NSFW Mix) by askmeaboutLOOM

Hallelujah! (So Very NSFW Mix) has first-rate music – a choir! an organ! – and really, really sexual lyrics.

This concludes Hallelujah Week. Probably.

Edit: Whoops, I forgot to attach the MP3. Fixed!

plastic people by dunkadunc

plastic people is an electropop song, a bit fuzzy and chiptune-ish.

Redwood City Blues by Danf

Redwood City Blues is a chill song, with just an acoustic guitar.

Halle Hula by cortex

Halle Hula is a hula-flavored cover of Hallelujah, just ukelele and singing and *so much* joy.

Chrome Shuriken Dragonfire by gmm

Chrome Shuriken Dragonfire reminds me of Royksopp, uplifting synthpop with noodly arpeggio synths. The lyrics are about 8-bit sprites, from old-school video games.

Halleluyeah! by The World Famous

Halleluyeah! is a glistening 80’s piece of hair metal butt rock. It’s ridiculous and awesome.

Yeah, let’s do a Hallelujah week.
