    Default "Emotionally Charged Electronica" & The Ineffable Sadness of Woops

    Woops has demanded the microphone. We cede centre stage to the master of melancholy, the sage of sadness, the mage of misery, the doyen of depression and eagerly await the unfurling of his top 100. Have your tissues ready, there will be tears.

    The correct nomenclature is 'The emotronica canon'.

    Fuck, I really thought I had the sadness gold medal in my clutches, too.
    Took a rest stop that wasn't on the schedule

    Dissensus has played host to any number of distinguished musical talents over the years; Mike Paradinas, Ed DMX, some bloke out of Black Dog, Sid Viscous, but none of these able to hold a candle to woops, king of "emotionally charged electronica" aka ommm, pioneer of bedcore.

    Default Frédéric Chopin's "Raindrop" Prelude, Op 28, No. 15

    1. Until Chopin classical music was all glory to god, banging hosannas, etc. Suddenly with Chopin there's a new fragility. Gainsbourg would rip him off completely for Jane B q.v.

    Default Erik Satie: Gnossiennes

    2. Forget the much-hyped ambient connection, these melodies are for listening

    .

    Default Debussy - Sarabande

    3. Satie's friend with a similar exotic style, but more florid. As a friend once pointed out "it sounds like drinker's music".

    Default Serge Gainsbourg - L'anamour

    4. Gainsbourg would be a god to me just for getting off with Jane Birkin, but he also happened to be a top musician. The title translates as "The one without love", or so.

    Default Luna - Bonnie and Clyde

    5. Another Gainsbourg song but with a better guitar sound than they had in the 60s PLUS! Laetita Sadier of Stereolab, whose music though I love it, is too utopian for a melancholia selection.

    Default Broadcast - We've Got Time

    6. Like Stereolab but with the added sadness so they make the list. When Broadcast first came out they claimed they could only write waltzes, but that didn't last very long.

    Default Pram - Last Astronaut

    7. And if Broadcast make it so do Pram, also from Birmingham, where there was a pretty good scene late 90's, although Metrotone were shit.

    Default One For the Catholic Girls- Simon Joyner

    8. US indie rockers were perhaps surprisingly good at melancholia, listen to these lyrics.
