Hello fellow ifyoulikeblankers-

We're trying out some new post flairs in an effort to weed out some of the more obvious suggestions. If you're looking for or making suggestions in a genre that you're already deep into, then try our new "Advanced" flairs. They should appear just below the standard flairs when creating your post.

Thanks to /u/LordApocalyptica for the idea.

Happy hunting!

Edit: Thank you for your diligence, but I think I'll leave this post up!

I really love finding songs to trip out to after smoking. Looking for anything that sounds super trippy or chill, can be either rap or have some sort of electronic influence. I'm not too into trippy rock (but if you think it's a must have please link it), and I am definitely not looking for something that just sounds like every lofi chill hop playlist on YouTube. Any help is greatly appreciated though, don't feel afraid to comment! I'll list some links to my favorite so far:

Kush by Ooljee

No Chill by Vic Mensa

Boca Raton by Bas & A$AP Ferg

Born To Shine by Big Grams

Kush High by Eighty4 Fly

Make It Right by Nessly & Joji

Sweet by Brockhampton

Trippy by Buddy ft. Khalid

I Wish by Skee Lo

I live in an area where the afternoons get unbelievably beautiful. Where the sun’s rays cast shadows that look tranquil during the late afternoon hours.

I was hoping to match that feeling with music. Any recommendations? I’m imaging something along the vein of Torn by Natalie Imbruglia.

EDIT:

I think I might have mislead everyone commenting on this post. I should have used more songs to describe the feeling I was going for.

Torn has this bittersweet feel to it—can be used for those days when you drive long hours in the late afternoon hours back home but also has this nostalgic emotion. I guess I wanted songs like that but also those light-hearted, slightly upbeat songs that literally make you feel weightless. Something like Lady Gaga’s “Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)” or The Wallflowers’ “One Headlight”.

I've never really listened to electronic music before so I thought this would be a great introduction due to the high praise it gets and let me tell you, it's fucking awesome. Is there anything similar to this album I would like as well?

Also could you guys recommend me a some albums to introduce me to electronic music? I am a metalhead so I would like some heavy shit but I'm pretty much open to any suggestions.

So basically, I am looking for good 90s and early 2000s alernative rock. We all know semi charmed life. We all know scar tissue. We all know smells like teen spirit. Must I continue? Don't get me wrong, I do love all of these songs, but they are all overplayed and I hear them way too often. I need something new. All I am looking for is the same genre of music and a similar style. Thank you for listening to my rant.

Hey everyone! Was wondering if anyone had any musical suggestions that have the same vibe. I like how it’s chill and a little sombre. Thanks!

Like the airport scene from Avengers Civil War, the Marineford arc from One Piece, the Decisive Battle of Karakura from Bleach, etc. Not sure if there is a trope named after this. Bonus points for drama from characters switching sides.

I've already seen Sharp Objects, but it was just okay for me. Any other great mystery dramas/cop procedural shows?

Editing to add that I've seen Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, The Night of, BBC's Luther as well

I'd also like to throw in Deceit. It's not your typical puzzle game, but it is in a way, and brings a similar experience of trying to figure everything out - even if it is a bit chaotic.

I like the mix of sci-fi and space travel with the pomp and pagentry of fairy tale fantasy.

I really enjoy books with rotating POV, and I liked that there were a lot of female characters working together, and nobody ever pulled "not like other girls." Some like guns and fixing cars, others like fashion and romance, and nobody's ever looked down on for what they like.

I'm usually pretty picky about romance in YA, but this series had 4 different romantic subplots which I felt were all really well done. Everybody has a purpose outside of just being a love interest, the guys had personalities other than "dark and brooding," their interactions rarely ever felt too schmaltzy, and they actually seemed to like each other, something that's often missing in YA romance (lately, the norm seems to be two bland hot people who decide they're in love but still treat each other horribly). And, no love triangles, and great platonic guy-and-girl friendships with no contrived jealousy.

I know I probably won't find much that checks all of these boxes, but these are all things I just adore in YA.

Does anyone know a song that starts of slow for around 10 seconds and speeds up quite fast into something intense? Im looking for a "beautiful" type of sound, like when you see something and you just think to yourself "wow" sort of thing. Thanks!

Anything rock that fits the title. Best example I can think of is Jimi Hendrix doing Johnny B. Goode live at the Berkeley Community Theatre.

The instrumentals sound like plenty of foreign folk songs that would be played in places like Russia, The middle east, and Mexico, but I can't seem to find too many of them. Any help would be appreciated!

Some other shows I have already watched and loved:

  • 24
  • Homeland
  • Jack Ryan
  • The Blacklist
  • Person of Interest

What I really like are shows that incorporate some badass spies who survive and destroy evil in incredible ways, without using magic or superpowers, drones and weapons of mass destruction, terrorists, state secrets, reporting to the president, etc...

I need help finding more OG 2000s era loud/angry rap. I have been working for months to make a playlist of this style of rap because it gives me a different kind of energy. Stuff in my playlist already includes:

Party Up - DMX

15th and the 1st - Gucci/Waka

Hard in da Paint - Waka

X Gon' give it to ya - DMX

Shut em Up - The Prodigy/Public Enemy

Ante Up - MOP

Welcome to Detroit - Eminem/Trick Trick

Can't Be Touched - Roy Jones

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

P.S. Other hype music, such as club music, from artists like Kanye and Savage are also helpful.

I just listened to Max Richter's recomposed Vivaldi, The Four Seasons album and am completely awestruck. I want more of this! Can anyone point me to other albums recomposing or remixing classical music? Thanks!

Recently got back into anime and the amount of stuff to watch is overwhelming. I dig shonen stuff like My Hero Academia and Hunter x Hunter, but I'm looking for quirkier and more unique titles that maybe don't fit that format.

Some others include: Pond, The Lemon Twigs, The Strokes, Rex Orange County, Foxygen, Parquet Courts, The Flaming Lips, Beach House, Vampire Weekend, Mellow Fellow, boy pablo, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Childish Gambino and Tyler the Creator. I know its a pretty packed list, any recommendation about any artist is appreciated.

Edit: Any good songs I might have not heard from the artists above is fine too.
