My song of the moment is Yellowcard - Ten. It's a song lamenting the miscarriage/abortion (not clear which) of the singer's child ten years prior to recording the song. He wonders what they might have been like, and imagines a few scenarios. One thing I really like is that the song isn't whiny. ...It's not asking for sympathy. It's just sharing some strong emotions.
When my wife (girlfriend at the time) and I were in our early 20s, she became pregnant. We weren't even close to ready, so we weren't as careful as an expectant mother should be, and she lost the child pretty early on. At the time, we were admittedly relieved. However, now that we are older, and have our wonderful little boy, I often wonder what our first son/daughter may have been like... When this song was released four years ago, it had been right around ten years since for us as well. So, in that regard, the song hits very close to home for me. I listen to it whenever I think of whom we missed out on.

So, back in 1999 a college buddy of mine pointed out this song to me because he loved it but couldn't identify it.  He also played another good, but unidentifiable, song.  That day, I found out the latter was "Mero Mero Mambo" by Tribe of Gypsies, but I could never identify the former... until today!  It's Big in Japan by Tokia.

17 years later, yeah!

EDIT: Apparently, it's a remix cover of this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iwPZtutMlM

2016 has been a damn good year for metal.  Megadeth's Dystopia album is easily one of their top 5.  Everything about that album is amazing.  Even the lyrics are good, and Mustaine's never been much for lyrics.  Zao's new material melts faces and rips paper off of walls.  Dysrhythmia's new album is some of their darkest material.  

But the 2016 metal album I've been digging the hell out of lately is "Learning to Breathe" by Cyborg Octopus.  That album is like Between the Buried and Me had a baby with Dog Fashion Disco.  It's heavy, epic, experimental, and doesn't give a flying fuck about the rulebook.  The songwriting structure is incredible too- it's not just masturbatory noodling.  So GOOD!  It just may be my pick for favorite album of 2016.  

So that whole album is my song of the moment, and here's a sampler:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZMl_kOcw5c

Do you guys know of any way to find a song that you don't know the name and artist of? This is like...the single most common problem I've encountered with music that I figured would've been solved by now. Google only ever seems to focus on the most random words when I look up the lyrics, and at best, gives me whatever was on the top 100 back in 2014. Anything else winds up being a pain in the butt to find...I've encountered this 3 times in a row just recently...it's really annoying. And I highly doubt these were independantly composed.

^ Well, if you know how the tune goes, you can hum it into one of those "what song is this" phone apps, like Soundhound, or whatever. As with most phone apps, they only seem to work half the time, though...

Nami Tamaki's cover of T-ara's Time to Love (so a JPOP artist covering a KPOP song) is what got me into KPOP because nothing in my life is normal.

Anyway, here it is

Well, I tried it with a particular song I was looking for last night, but the problem is: I'm tone deaf, and the app's not available for my phone, and when I tried to use something similar on my Desktop, it repeatedly crashed on Startup.

At the very least, since I got it from a random video, I tried asking the maker of the video. Unfortunately, I don't think he understood what I said, since he gave me the song to a different video, but at least he responded. I'll try again.

But yeah, it's kind of frustrating. I have two other songs that sound like they came from, like, some random kid shows, maybe on the Disney Channel? Nothing. Granted, the works I got those from were made a talented enough guy that I wouldn't be surprised if he mixed them himself, but I'm also pretty positive that would've been a complete waste of time for two quickly-thrown-together-and-then-buried flash loops...

Since I loved that Cyborg Octopus album so much, I looked into their back catalog, and discovered that theur 2013 ep "Primordial" is free on bandcamp.  So I downloaded it, listened to it, and loved it.  All the songs are so good. The EP is more straightforward prog/death but the album is way more experimental.  So I really like that this band likes to do their own thing.

I'm really digging the tunes for Cyborg Octopus but I wish they'd do more singing than growling.

Been listening to a lot of Ghost lately. Didn't quite expect them to grow on me so much.

Timely songs. 

1) "Old Man River" from Showboat.  Because no matter how tough everything gets, old man river just keeps rolling along.  No matter what happens, life goes on and we keep on keeping on.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh9WayN7R-s

Excellent track!
(went to hit 'favorites' and it was already there)

Sakanaction - New Treasure Island.
Yeah it's catchy, but I think there's a lot of magic in choreographed dance (and Japanese love it).

https://youtu.be/MtDPKJSsBgc
Mark Forster Feat. Sido - Au Revoir
Chill beat, lovely [German] vocals, and can;t go wrong with the wrap bit where the guy mentions Indiana Jones.

Cool to see these guys playing true to form.

Just discovered this band this year. Amazing twist starts around 3:17

Insomnium  - Winter's Gate

Song of the moment or album of the moment? Lol...this one is a 40-minute song. Really dig the concept of this. If broken up, it's actually seven parts.

In thant case, I think you'd like Ever Forthright.  I saw them live a couple years ago and they blew me away.  Growling, singing, metal, jazz... at one point during the show, the vocalist broke out a saxophone and did a sax solo on top of deathcore breakdowns.  I had never seen or heard anything quite like them. 
http://everforthright.bandcamp.com

And I posted about this band Dog Fashion Disco elsewhere on the music forum.  They're a very eclectic band.  These two songs from their Ad Nauseam album couldn't be any more different, but that's what I like about the band.  They play whatever the hell they want, genre barriers be damned.  I wish I'd known about them earlier, because I want this album now.  I encourage folks to listen to both songs.  Same band, same album. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCd0586QF2A Title track (it's got a groovy swing rock feel)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V2BIJ3PED8 Covered in Blood (it's a damn good thrash song.)
