I have selected instrumental breaks of 20 songs from my iTunes library that I admire the sound of.
Your task was to identify the song and the artist behind it.

One point will be given for every correct answer (artist and song)
If you identify the artist, and not the song (or vice versa). Half a point will be given.

Will start at around 14:30 due to some school work.

ONE. New Order - Blue Monday



Correct: Dan, Spin, BridgeCow, Liam, Jade, THEO, Froot, PeteFromLeeds, King Rollo, Bre, Dobbo, Oliver, Dandy
HarryEzra: Kraftwerk
Riser: Erasure
Jacob: ABBA
J Hq: Pet Shop Boys ?? (or someone from around that era? laugh.gif )



Kicking off this round with something easy. This 1983 track is one of New Order's most well known songs. I first heard it back in 2006 when I found it on some iTunes library, this and Temptation were two of the first New Order tracks I remember hearing. I also own the track on my CD copy of Substance.
Fun DT32 fact: I actually have a New Order book personally signed by the band's former bassist Peter Hook

TWO. THE Kills - The Good Ones





Correct: BridgeCow, dandy
-------------------------------
Jade: Electric Light Orchestra
THEO: The Kinks - You Really Got Me?
PeteFromLeeds: ZZ Top?
Bre: The Strokes
Riser: The Rolling Stones
Dobbo: The Kinks
Jacob: Status Quo



Only two correct guesses.
I first heard about this band on an indie compilation back in 2014. But the first song I remember hearing from Alison Mosshart and Co. was Doing It To Death, which I discovered on the BBC 6 Music playlist from Spring 2016. I just loved the sound of the guitars and the style of Mosshart's vocals. I then decided to check out an old song of theirs known as The Good Ones. Heard it once, sounds good, didn't hear it again, buys FCD compilation from a Helen and Douglas shop, sees track on it, listens to it, I'm really digging this. I also added their 2016 album Ash And Ice on my Top 75 Best Albums Of 2016 countdown from months ago (it had more great tracks from The Kills, like Heart Of A Dog, Siberian Nights, Impossible Tracks, Whirling Eye).
The production of the guitar have got some users thinking the sample was from the likes of Rolling Stones and ZZ Top.

I think Blue Monday is the best selling 12 inch single ever. They didn't make much money from it as the cover was so expensive to manufacture.

THREE. Moby - Porcelain




Correct: Dan, Spin, BridgeCow, Liam, Jade, Froot, PeteFromLeeds, King Rollo, Bre, Riser, Oliver, Dandy
--------------
HarryEzra: Massive Attack
THEO: Darkchild late 90s production
Dobbo: Dido - White Flag
J hq: One of the most recognisible clips from adverts or other usage in that media, but I can’t even come up with an artist guess.


This one was easier than the previous one.
The first song I heard by Moby was the emotional "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" on a road trip at around 2006. The choir samples really this well with the track's key of A minor. The NYC DJ's critically acclaimed 1999 album Play was one of the few post-80s albums in my parents' CD collection, along with some CDs from the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Ocean Colour Scene, Travis and REM. I first heard Porcelain in 2014. The reversed sample of a track from the Exodus Score composed by Ernest Gold adds a relaxing tone to its chilled trip-hop vibe, along with some occasional piano phrases, plus some good hints of minimalism.

Harry guessed Massive Attack. There are some occasions where the trip-hop vibe of both artists can sound similar.
Also, THEO, you're half right on that descriptive answer. It was produced in the late 90s, but not by Darkchild, alas. Moby himself produced it.

FOUR. Foals - After Glow




Correct: Liam, dandy
----------------
Jade: Film
PeteFromLeeds: Radiohead
Bre: The Temper Trap
Riser: The xx
Dobbo: Coldplay


Only two correct guesses (again).
This is one of Foals' deeper cuts, and one of my favourite tracks from Total Life Forever (along with Spanish Sahara, Miami, This Orient, Black Gold and Blue Blood)
I got into this track after hearing all of Foals' studio albums back in 2015 (I bought all of them from an independent record store, except for TLF [which I found in Oxfam]. All of them on CD and three of them on vinyl [I have yet to collect Antidotes on vinyl]. I also have a personally signed CD copy of What Went Down)

FIVE. Declan McKenna - Isombard





Correct: BridgeCow, Oliver, dandy
-------------
Liam: sounds like a Final Fantasy dungeon BANGER
Jade: Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
PeteFromLeeds: Radiohead
Bre: Grimes
Riser: M83
Dobbo: The Cure



I first heard about Declan McKenna on the Vinyl Singles Chart when his single Paracetamol hit the Vinyl Top 40 back in early 2016 (on white vinyl). The first McKenna song I remember hearing was Bethlehem, but it was Isombard that got me immersed into his material. I have a picture disc of his debut LP "What Do You Think About The Car?" which also came with a bonus 7".

SIX. Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone





Correct: Everyone who entered except for PeteFromLeeds and King Rollo
------------------------------------
PeteFromLeeds: Paula Selling & Ovi - Miracle



This was a really easy one.
Calvin's first UK number one hit, in 2009. This was what his music sounded like before he hit the EDM airwaves with Bounce and We Found Love. Also, did you know that Acceptable In The 80's is now ten years old?

SEVEN. Radiohead - Idioteque






Correct: King Rollo, Oliver, Dandy
Half-Points: Pete From Leeds, Jacob (both guessed Radiohead)
----------------
Dan: Burial
BridgeCow: Idk but I think it sounds familiar
Liam: Burial?
Jade: Ultravox
Bre: Aphex Twin
Riser: Aphex Twin
Dobbo: Glitch Hop - Bad Glitch



Some people confusing this for either Burial or Aphex Twin. Both artists usually go for an industrial vibe. Idioteque sounds kinda industrial.
"Who's in a bunker? Who's in a bunker? Women and children first" - Thom Yorke, Idioteque (2000)
Anyway, Idioteque is a deep cut in Radiohead's discography. Taken from the 2000 album Kid A, which was released without any promotion or officially released singles (and surprise surprise: It got to number one on the UK Albums Chart). This might be my favourite track on Kid A (along with Everything In Its Right Place, Optimistic and In Limbo). I love how well the drum machine and the Mild Und Leise sample that pops up throughout the tune go together.
Radiohead is one of my favourite bands. I have all of their studio albums on CD, plus a triple blue vinyl of OK Computer and a 7" of Burn The Witch.

EIGHT. Flume - Depth Charge





Correct: BridgeCow, Liam, Oliver, Dandy
-------------
Jade: Glass Animals
PeteFromLeeds: Radiohead
Bre: Jai Paul
Riser: Royksopp
Dobbo: Eurythmics



Speaking of Jade's guess, Dave Bayley from Glass Animals did the feature vocals on the last track of the EP Depth Charge was featured in. The song was called Fantastic.
Depth Charge is one of the tracks taken from the second Skin Companion EP by Flume. I have both of the companion EPs on 12" vinyl and have yet to get the Skin album.
This and Fantastic are my favourite tracks on the EP. Both have really solid production and some nice instrumentation.

NINE. Alabama Shakes - Don't Wanna Fight






Correct: Liam, HarryEzra, Riser, Dandy
--------------------
Jade: Vampire Weekend
PeteFromLeeds: Kasabian
Bre: St. Vincent
Dobbo: Blur
Jacob: Amy Winehouse?



The first Alabama Shakes song I heard was Hold On back when I got it as an iTunes Single Of The Week. Some great soul-influenced rock.
I came across Don't Wanna Fight on the BBC 6 Music playlist back in Summer 2015 and got into it. I also heard the album Sound And Color right after listening to DWF and I enjoyed it. It carries some of the soul influences that I loved in Hold On with some great production values.

Bre: Royal Blood
Dobbo: Nirvana



I'm putting the commentaries on hold for now, for reasons unknown.
