So, I was listening to some crust punk band, and I looked up the lyrics, and they were in Early Modern English, and I was like, who the fuck wrote this song?

Robert Parsons. In the Tudor era. It’s a doom metal/crust punk cover of an early Renaissance piece. :ROFLMAO:

What do you get when you combine Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy", The Avalanches' "Frontier Psychiatrist", and Neon Genesis Evangelion?

Something magical.

A wonderful song from the amazing nationalist epic movie of A. R. Rahman Rang de Basanti.

Maiya Yashoda - Hum Saath Saath Hain -- who doesn't want to watch her dance?
You know, this and other references makes it occur to me I need to dive into Bollywood films sometime because this and Bajirao Mastani, along with a bunch of side-references to other stuff I've run across and don't even know the names to, makes it seem like the musical/dance movie genre never died there and there's a bunch waiting that I might enjoy.

Ian Tyson in general is one I'd recommend to folks who might have even an inkling of interest in Western folk or general ranchland music. He's got a bunch of songs on general ranching/farming/western subject matter, and some of his love songs are outright tear-jerkers, then finally he's got a half-joke song 'Coyote & the Cowboy' that was officially a endnote drinking song at his concerts that he participated in for years until he sobered up--which I just think is a humorous note.

In particular for one of his songs that encapsulates some of the romantic sentiment of land-use and debate in the West is a ballad he wrote about Claude Dallas--who was a semi-famous guy involved in a case of (possible) federal overreach/abuse in the late-80s.

In the same vein as the above, Chris LeDoux is/was the patron singer-songwriter of rodeo as a whole, and has a mess of songs on that topic and rural countryside life. Some is tongue-in-cheek, some just outright joking, but there's a lot of sentimental songs along with it. To give an example of the lighter stuff:

I don't think I can ever make one of these types of posts without shilling for my beloved artists from yesteryear. Madonna kind've lost the magic after a few years, but I gotta refer anybody who likes that style of semi-corny, synth-pop 80s stuff to Kim Wilde--who unlike Madonna is still going and hasn't suffered genre-shift or evolution into some kind of celebrity personality.

@prinCZess oh sister, you have no idea. Men dancing, women dancing, large groups of people dancing, single people dancing, dancing in period pieces, dancing in the rain in jeans -- Bollywood is the very heart of the modern musical!

For example, I sword dance to this song from the amazing period piece Jodhaa Akbar.

Basically every single Bollywood movie has a musical number.
And of course all you need is a skirt and a shawl to dance along to it; the music is very catchy. Dear me, but I'm swaying and shaking in my seat while write this, really.

And here we have Shahrukh Khan and Malaika dancing on top of a train! I mean come on!

Here's a better quality version of the second song (actually, the original, the first was an edit of another song).

And of course Aishwarya Rai performing Barso Re is like... How can someone live without seeing this?

I am probably getting carried away now.
