We're halfway through July, meaning it's time for the new Community Challenge! :dynatrace:

 

The "Community DJ" badgeThe "Community DJ" badgeIt's holiday period right now, and many of us are slowing down a little bit. Let's move back to more laid-back subjects, this month looking at your... music playlists🎡 They're popping up to make our workflows, workouts, bike trips, or simply resting time more pleasant. People around us can sometimes love really non-ordinary genres and sounds. That's why we're so curious about your answers! πŸ‘€

  

Let's build the Dynatrace Community Summer Playlist together! 🎢 Share below the top 3 most listened tracks you're into right now, no matter what is the language, genre, length, form or age... It's up to you! As always, every participant can expect 100 bonus points and a priceless "Community DJ" badge. Who knows, maybe your answers will let others expand their musical horizons...

 

Let's start the Challenge! πŸŒŸ For the beginning, here are my three picks...

Great Challenge! Going to hear them all!

I'm going to give a bonus, with my playlists that I have for each of the genres below  🀣

  1. I love Southern Rock. So many songs that I like, but one that I hear over and over again:
    O Bando do Velho Jack - Eu nΓ£o preciso ir ao mΓ©dico
    Southern Rock Playlist
  2. I love to dance Salsa, not that I have done a lot lately. And I really love the sound! This is one that I hear the most
    Fruko y sus Tesos - El Preso
    Salsa Playlist
  3. I also love Blues, but a little bit harder. One of my favorite, from one of my favorite bands:
    Whitesnake - Trouble
    Rock Blues playlist

Enjoy!

Antonio Sousa

Amazing playlist, great opportunity to discover Portuguese music! Fun fact, in one of the largest Polish radio stations every Sunday used to be audition with nostalgic folk music from Portugal, sadly not anymore but it's been sooo different and fresh!

Rock blues !πŸ˜… listening for first time, but can relate the lyrics deeply, reminding me of my college days. Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚

I was expecting to see Moonspell in your list πŸ˜†

I enjoy 80s and 90s music (mostly rock), I also listen to other genres and languages, I was recently on a road trip and had my rock playlist playing for almost 12 hours drive. So many tracks to choose from, but these are the ones that are currently stuck playing in my head :).

  • Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane
  • Metallica - Wherever I May Roam
  • Guns N' Roses - Civil War

Classic rock for road trips is a perfect fit! πŸ˜Ž

Great Scorpions fan, especially from their first albuns. Hadn't heard Metallica recently, and also Civil War. Recently a friend of mine pointed me to a fun fact regarding the Guns N' Roses song:

*An eclectic mix -

 

I wish I could have been here to view these performances:

 

(Yanni - Aria at the Acropolis) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGQTygjOBhQ

 

(Andre Rieu - Blue Danube at SchΓΆnbrunn Palace Vienna, Austria)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDaJ7rFg66A

 

I did see this one in person: (Bon Jovi @ Toronto ACC) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6IpD9ty2bo

 

 

AndrΓ© Rieu & his Johann Strauss Orchestra playing "The Beautiful Blue Danube" (An der schΓΆnen blauen Donau) by composer Johann Strauss II. Recorded live at Empress Sisi's castle; SchΓΆnbrunn Palace Vienna, Austria with dancers from the famous Austrian Elmayer Dancing School. Clip from the DVD ...

All those efforts before the stage performance to make such a beautiful harmony along with live audience, commendable !!! 

Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚

KG

Didn't know Yanni, remembered me of another great Greek composer: Vangelis. André Rieu concerts are absolute amazing, have had the luck to presence one 😊 BTW, was born near Toronto, but came to Portugal a little before the Bon Jovi concert 🀣

Thankyou @Michal_Gebacki  for sharing this challenge, I would love to add all these songs in my playlist too. Here are couple of songs I keep on playing.

Jugni | Tochi Raina | Sufi Acoustica | Band Of Bandagi - YouTube - I love this song as it uplifts my soul to vibe with the Devine One !

Rockstar: NADAAN PARINDE (Lyrical Video) | Ranbir Kapoor | A.R Rahman | Mohit Chauhan - YouTube - Artist here have done a great job, and I can listen this on and on

OneRepublic - Apologize (Official Music Video) - YouTube - I listen all language songs which I can speak ! this is in my playlist. I do love the orginal version, but unfortunately the audio quality in YT is not as the one I owe in a cassette earlier. 

KG

Had to check out the meaning of Jugni and read some of the comments to understand the first suggestion πŸ™‚ Intrigued by the Rockstar phenomenon, also checked out "Sadda Haq" πŸ˜„ Hadn't heard Apologize for a long time...

Antonio Sousa

No need to apologizeπŸ˜…. Jugni is a word commonly know as person who resemble spirit or essence of life. Sadda Haq yea its indeed and intriguing song. Try listening more of AR Rehman compositions. He is India who lives music.

Had to check out where the Chris Rea music video was filmed: Formentera
And from the Techno Monkey video I now understand the Techno viking reference 🀣

Didn't know about Kurt Vile, has a Tom Petty sound, have to check more from him 😊

1. Kate Bush's song - "Running up That Hill" is epic even after 37 years after its release especially while watching the scene in Stranger Things and the song plays in the Background as the girl is running away

Cool selection, the number first is a true summer hit despite its age! πŸ˜Ž

As a complete "Phantom of the Opera" addict, I really liked Nightwish's version!!

Did not know about it! Thanks!!

My top 3 songs that I would recommend is,  

  1. Hey Jude (The Beatles)
  2. Eternal Love (Michael Learns The Rock)
  3. Hometown Smile 
Love more, hate less; Technology for all, together we grow.

Nice to explore another pack of different sounds together, always keen on mixing some opposites in one playlist πŸ˜„

If you like "Hey Jude", I suggest you hear the Minor version of it...

It is a musical arrangement, where the original Major key have been transposed to its Minor version... a darker, mellower Jude πŸ™‚ 

"HEY JUDE" in a MINOR KEY

Thank you Breno! 

I can spot another tune in Portuguese - it's rocking in this challenge! πŸ˜„

Oh, no... my musical curse, of the recent months ☠️

 

Between all of my friends, I am always the one who shows up late to gatherings scheduled to the early morning... I am the sleepy head of the group...Needless to say that, after the release of the "Acorda Pedrinho" tune (literally translates to "Wake Up, Little Pedro"), they have used it against me countless times πŸ€£

Best regards, Pedro Deodato

Nice challenge!

It is definitely different per mood, so let’s go with some different moods!

Alan Walker - Faded

JP Saxe & Julia Michaels - If the world was ending

Peter Gabriel - The book of Love

OOOOooOO - these are the closest to me! Mike - check this mashup - https://youtu.be/r3LiyKA4gqs?t=121 !! 

 

 

Senior Product Manager,
Dynatrace Managed expert

That was a fun mashup!

Wow, @Radoslaw_Szulgo ! Loved it!

I'm also a fan of Mashups!!!

 

One of the best ones out there, if you usually like them as well:

Boulevard Of Broken Songs

Hi @Michal_Gebacki 

This challenge is restrictive to me πŸ˜₯.

Im not a music fan, so how can I participΓ’tes :cool_doge:

Sharing Knowledge

Don't you have at least one tune that makes you smile? C'mon Malaik, let's try! πŸ˜ƒ

@Michal_Gebacki 
It seems strage but no, I smile to life without any tune.

 

I sing to my self when I want :dancing_blob:.

I can record you some track but you have to cover your ears :pacman: (Joke)

Sharing Knowledge

Hey, it's a really fantastic idea - looking forward to some exciting homemade tunes :cool_doge:

Well, hard to 'compete' with such an eclectic collection so far!! 

 

I really love soundtracks (movies, videogames, you name it), specially the epic ones.

One of the songs I recently keep on playing is 'Baba Yetu' by Christopher Tin, the theme song to the game Civilization IV:

Christopher Tin - Baba Yetu

 

 

Second, and perhaps the closest one to the Summer vibe... at least, it is HOT πŸ”₯

Fogo Fogo (literally translates to "Fire Fire") is a Portuguese music group, with roots from Africa's Cape Verde.

This one is one of my favourites of them, and it has been on Repeat A LOT lately:

Fogo Fogo & Sara Tavares - Kabu Frontam

 

Last but not least, I am very fond of Portuguese music in its many wonders: so full of History and Traditions!

It really brings me back to some happy places!

LuΓ­s Trigacheiro, a young Portuguese musician (who recently won a TV contest) combines in his music a lot of traditional Portuguese music tastes, with a very modern beat to it.

I recently attended a concert of him, and this one is stuck in my head since then:

LuΓ­s Trigacheiro - Quem Me VΓͺ

 

I could post so many more...

But I tried to stick to my most played recently...

Giving that I love so many different genres, I guess the selection above really puts out the message of the fun it is having the "Shuffle" button always on! 🀣

 

Hope some more musical challenges are up on the road πŸ˜„

 

Best regards, Pedro Deodato

Wow, Pedro, you really delivered! πŸ˜ƒ Fantastic to read some stories connected to tracks you're sharing, I love them!

Summer is on the horizon for us in the southern hemisphere again and I can't wait!! πŸ–

However, my first choice is a band I can listen to all day, all week, all year round and I'm proud to say a local πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ band that's doing really well for themselves: Spoegwolf (directly translated: spit wolf)
Here's one of my favorites from them:
Spoegwolf - Blou 

I enjoy a wide variety of music, depending on my mood and what I'm busy with, which makes this really difficult for me to put up my top three songs!
Tonight Alive - My Underworld (feat. Corey Taylor) is part of my rock playlist and a song that I can listen to over and over again.
Johnossi - Heavens is one of my favorite songs from this πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ band!

I was waiting for you answer, Andre, there you are! πŸ˜Ž Afrikaans music is so unique, I've explored once a few artists from those areas and it's impressive how distinct and groovy it is.
