    SONG #0301: HASSELHOFF
    http://songstowearpantsto.com/

    Guy writes little songs based on whatever you request, mostly for free. Already over 300 songs. I think "Hasselhoff" takes the cake, but also noteworthy:

    SONG #0166: JIBBERISH FREESTYLE WHAT WHAT
    REQUEST:
    please freestyle. except in jibberish.

    SONG #0258: PLEASE PLAY THE KEYBOARD AS FAST AS YOU CAN
    REQUEST:
    PLEASE PLAY THE KEYBOARD AS FAST AS YOU CAN

    SONG #0032: GEOMETRY IS THE NEW CALCULUS
    REQUEST:
    Please make a song about the results of when a Geometry text book and an Overhead Ceiling fan met and became the best of friends. The results can be anything you want, but it has to be in the style of a heavy metal song and the results have to include a family reunion in Canada.

    ....please include a Llama somewhere in the song.

  • 130 (give or take a few...) Balkan/Gypsy folk music recordings

    I'll repost this in a couple communities once I get around to joining some, but if you've somehow stumbled over here, perhaps you'll dig this:

    Balkan, Greek, and West Asian Folkdance MP3 Library
    http://geocities.com/balkanfolkdances/

    Songs from all over Central and Eastern Europe, including great Romany/Gypsy/Turkish stuff, lots of Greek folk music, and more. Some are better recording quality than others, but I think the rough quality does not take away any energy! I'm not sure of that "130" count, as some of those downloads are dodgy and I've hit several "no page found" links - they appear to slowly be fixing them, but no updates since May 2006.
