I've got a bunch of random mp3s in my collection that are left over from an ex, so I don't know what all of them are. One day one of his old happy hardcore songs came on; it was your typical hard and fast beat and sped up 'chipmunk' vocals that you couldn't actually understand.
I was in a crappy mood at the time and found it cheered me up tremendously; so I thought, hey, let's buy some more. I looked around for a mix collection and found Happy Hardcore Top 100
. Except I got it home, excitedly put it on, and... it's not bad
music, but it's not what I was expecting. Pretty mediocre beats and not a single song with the hyper-sped-up vocals. Songs like Prodigy's Outer Space; good, but not at all like the original song that I was after.
Does anyone who knows more than me know what that original song might have been? It was in a shuffle list and I can't for the life of me find the original mp3 again to check the tags. From memory though, it was unnamed anyway.
I feel like this could have been any number of bands, but if it's as prominent as I was led to believe, why is there not a single one on this so-called 'top hundred'?
Can anyone recommend some good CDs that are
that kind of happy hardcore? Compilation CDs are especially welcome as I like to get a range, but as long as it's that sort of music I'd love artist reccomendations as well.
