Good Omens rap in Portuguese.
well i don't know how mama was surprised
when this first came out it was hella popular, too. a lot of folks who only knew bassey as "the one who did that bond movie song", or didn't know her at all, got really interested in her discography. what a great song.
1) this man is clearly an initiate of the Order of the Seth Everman Stare.
2) I cannot believe the opening notes of Septette for the Dead Princess are stolen directly from Beethoven.
about halfway through, reaction

speaking of satie, when i was a smol i concluded somehow that when i grew up i would learn the word for the feeling ‘gymnopedie’ gives me, but i never did
minor sperg rage over him sometimes including first name and sometimes not
every single composer is male, and aside from joplin they’re all european; where is the fault? probably not this guy, he’s at a curatorial stage of the process. do games, movies, etc choose only dead white men to steal from, and if so, is it racism, is it inherited bias from other sources, or is it copyright related? or maybe it’s even earlier in the process that women and poc got cut out — simply by not having the option of ‘composer’ as a profession.
I think that's probably a lot of it. "Dead" is central because they're in the public domain, so there's no licensing fees for using them; that's why all the old Looney Tunes cartoons were scored with classical music (which is directly or indirectly responsible for the pop-cultural ubiquity of a lot of these songs). And because that means they're all from 100+ years ago, that means things were even more racist and sexist than the fields are now.
