Steampunk Music Dump

I know that Jen posted about the Lovett and Panic! at the Disco music videos months ago, but I didn’t want anything getting in the way of preparing for the cake show or sorting through the 1000+ photos after wards. So now it’s time for a Steampunk Music dump courtesy of Jen from Epbot.com and my husband’s music collection.

First up is Lovett’s Eye of the Storm music video.
 

 
It’s from the album Highway Collection, and I liked it so much that I not only purchased this song through iTunes, but grabbed three others from this album as well.

Next is Panic! At The Disco’s song The Ballad Of Mona Lisa.
 

 
Since Steve had the Vices & Virtues album on the list for his monthly trip to Waterloo Record, I would have eventually found this without Jen’s assistance; but it’s sometimes nice to beat my music-loving husband to something cool.

This last song isn’t exactly a steampunk song. While it would be perfectly suited for the steampunk genre (sub-genre?), it also lends itself to any number of end of the world scenarios: apocalypse, zombie outbreak, or even one of the many recent poorly-done alien invasion movies. The album Shine On by Dexter Freebish was released last October, but I’d have never even heard this song if it weren’t for Steve’s weekly updates of our music stream.

Sadly, Save the Last Dance doesn’t have a music video to go with it.
 

 
If anyone else has a great song to recommend, please let me know in the comments!

Non-edible cake, with teeth

As a kid, fine dining for us was dinner at Red Lobster.  I think I’m jealous.
