sorry about the abrupt ending! it was bound to happen, finally lost some footage or thought i recorded stuff that didn't record.. other than that this is showcasing the pet shop boys. this band has a huge catalog and spans decades. the focus i'm putting on here are songs that encourage and empower me through those hard times!

decided to share some of the music keeping me through days where the struggle is reall and i am focusing on making it different lately. phantogram is a huge band for me for times that are hard. hard times calls for good emotional music! the goth life includes finding motivation with darkly inclined music outside of the goth music genre.

in this next installment i discuss emily haines, front leader of band metric's side project, emily haines & the soft skeleton. she recently did a newer album for this project too.

i showcase crowd surf off and cliff and the last page as samples and give a little blurb of what speaks to me. the goth life is enjoying dark themes outside of the music genre at times too.

what happens when you mix rupauls drag race, goth aesthetic, and goth music? you get the awesome drag queen aja and some of her work!

https://youtu.be/eAbkTbQF18M


aja is a drag queen who was a contestant on rupuals drag race and rupauls all stars drag race. aja is a black person who is queer and does drag performance. recently they have been focusing on music and created an always alternative reference, music video look, lyrics, or sound. here i'm showcasing the tunes created with a primarily goth focus! the goth life includes queer people too.

this is a new music theme of my channel that's a long time coming. i'm finally going to start sharing the music that gets me through, keeps me alive, and hears me when i feel i'm at my lowest and no one can hear me.

https://youtu.be/wTTMnznlK7o


but fret not it's nothing negative here or too dreary. i'll be sharing 3 songs from each band. and this series is actually going to be non goth music as i use goth music for fun.

marissa nadler is a long time bae of mine and deserves all the praise and love. imo she is easily goth music.

this is something i don't see talked about a lot. and all for the focus of social media discussing punk and how siouxsie sioux is so influential with a lot of goths i find it surprising social media rarely brings up this particular part of her and it being apart of their history.

https://youtu.be/mhyxBZjgaPU


what are your thoughts on it? should it stay burried? does it mean nothing and her music still slaps no matter what?

let me know in the comments section below!

here's to celeberating another year w

one of my favorite albums that isn't technically goth is misery is a butterfly by blonde redhead. while not goth it has ties to the community and their themes are often dark and existential and defiantly in similar veins. learn a bit about this kick ass band, their ties to the goth genre, and take a listen to some of the awesome songs. also check out the album artwork it's kick ass!

this part of the 90s black goth babybat music series i go over a very famous collab. it's kinda heavy on the gothic themes compared to some of the other episodes in the series as is. even though it's not a goth music subgenre. in spite of that, it is defiantly 100% hip hop meets rock. the goth life includes finding inspiration from unlikely sources.

Another installment of 90s rnb/hip hop songs and music videos that were heavy leaning in the gothic aesthetic. This time we'll look into TLC's No scrubs and talk about how this video is very EBM/cyber goth visually and could've been a way young black goths could get interested, introduced to, or inspired to join the gothic scene in an unusual way.

things are a changing. i discuss the current transformation of nightclubs in the goth scene. i discuss my local cities experience and how they are transitioning to online dance parties. i also discuss how this new experience due to stay at home orders opens up opportunities for other marginalized groups who previously couldn't go out.#withme

this youtube video has been going viral for awhile. while it's not 100% goth, it is african people dressing goth and being punk and counter culture. i still feel it's fit for my focus of this youtube channel. Learn about the lady behind this mini documentary, two bands that are being interviewed, and get TONS of visual representation and ideas of how to combine being black and darkly dressed.

jordan pelee's movie us has recently came out. jordan continued to bring his unique mesh of black culture to the horror genre of art by combing a hip hop song with horror themed edits.

https://youtu.be/zQDdZcn1HlU


here i give a bit of history to the song i got five on it, the samples this song originally used to give the full tree of sampling, and showcasing bits of the new remixed version of this song. i take the time to share why this is related to black goths.

i also give some back history to jordan pelee and his past works and hollywood resume.

this is the first music video i'm going to discuss and dissect in my series of 90s hip hop/rnb videos that were goth inclined. i discuss why i feel this falls into a gothic category, the impact it had pre internet on me and possibly other black people who were starting to find the goth subculture....and also provide visuals of how it could be a gateway to the subbculture for others.
