It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for the Doc to start browsing the obscure parts of the Internet to fill out his vintage MP3 collection. Meanwhile, the Nerdlove interns and residents take over the comments section for their own nefarious purposes!
This week’s suggested topic: Last week, Kieron Gillen and Jaime McKelvie’s music-as-magic comic Phonogram wrapped up and it’s put me in a mood to talk and share music. But rather than share the top-40 stuff or the usual suspects, I want to talk about more unusual, less common music. So let’s talk about the offbeat, unusual or obscure music and genres you love. So break out those lesser-known soundtracks and dig into your collection for the quirky stuff that you love that’s a little off the beaten path. Bonus points for YouTube links so other people can enjoy it too. I’ll start with two very different tracks. The first: the aria “Aria De Mezzo Carattere” from Final Fantasy VI:

You know the rules. No hate, no spam, no trolling. Have fun!
