Mick Gordon - BFG Division
Daft Punk - Da Funk
Junior Senior - We R The Handclaps
Run The Jewels - Close Your Eyes and Count To F***
The Clash - The Magnificent Seven
Cranberries - Lovefool
Devo - Jerkin' Back and Forth
Ooh this is fun, my initial ideas:
Daft Punk, Junior Senior, Run The Jewels, & Devo are all good choices that probably have multiple songs each to choose from. The game needs more funk though... maybe some ska. Would also like to see some more modern indie stuff if it fits.
Honestly I bet choosing songs for this game is way harder than it seems. Each song has to have a super recognizable 32 bar loop and each part, especially the rhythm, probably have to be straightforward and homogenous enough that they will blend with all the other tracks, and obviously they have to be 4/4. I wonder how long before people try to start making their own stems and getting them into the game too.
A bunch of Asian breakbeat tracks, but one is ESSENTIAL to include:
Other stuff like, you know, real club shit:
Oh and some southern rap classics:
Man I can go on forever, but I'll stop there.
Oooh, I definitely agree with "Magnificent Seven". As for me, the tentative list would be....
Some more modern stuff would be nice, since the 2020s selection is not particularly hot right now. (That new Billie Eilish has a delicious bass.) I'd personally love more goth, if only because they tempted me with that Echo and the Bunnymen track.
Well, they already have the Numa Numa Guy song, Take on Me, and Rock The Casbah, so they may as well round out with some more essentials from the YTMND meme catalog:
I know Amplitude had some crossover stuff, so it would be neat—and more fitting this time around—if they were to do that with Fuser.
I’ll be on brand and say put Miku and Blackpink in the game.
More specific wish list stuff:
—Metric, “Help I’m Alive”, “Black Sheep”, “Gold Guns Girls”
—Justice, “Safe and Sound”, “Audio, Video, Disco”, “Randy”
Some fantastic suggestion already here. I find with this sort of thing my brain goes to a song I think is 'cool' first, but actually I think the stem separation means it's worth digging into tracks that might have less appeal as a whole but some cracking parts to them. So I nominate:
Crazy Horses by the Osmonds
Devil Woman by Cliff Richards
Summer Night City by ABBA
Popcorn by Gershon Kingsley or Hot Butter
Other than that I'll take a whole load of Erasure, Depeche Mode and The Bluetones.
They've filled in one of my wishes already this week with "Whoomp! (There It Is)" getting added, but some others I'd love to see:
