anyone recognise any of these? (completely self-serving thread)
« on: September 28, 2009, 10:25:17 PM »
ok, so, on a forum recently someone recognized something I'd long wondered about, so I realize how useful it can be to ask around...

so I've got a few links (a play time of less than 3 minutes) to songs I've got questions about... if anyone would take the time, I thank you.

familiar melody, no idea what it's from--folk? classical?

this song* reminds me of something, at first I thought Vader from WWF Wrestling, but google doesn't seem to think so. now I'm thinking maybe an old Genesis video game?

familiar melody...but maybe it was his version I'd heard all along? does anyone know a song similar, or has anyone heard this song used anywhere where I might have heard it (many many years ago)?

familiar melodies: ripped off, I'm sure, from traditional Celtic folk songs. anyone know 'em?

cheers for any knowledge.

The first Suidakra song is a fast tempo version of the traditional tune "Loch Lomond".  Here's a version of the tune that starts out traditional and then gets rockier (around the 1 minute mark). 
Loch Lomond (By The Real McKenzies)
   
However, I don't recognize the second Suidakra song as any tune in particular.  It might just be influenced by traditional Celtic music.

much appreciated.

my impression of the second one was that it was some melody I'd definitely heard before, except that the words were different. maybe it is just 'that style'.
