    “Urami Bushi”, Meiko Kaji (梶芽衣子)
    “Uranus, The Magician”, Zubin Mehta; New York Philharmonic
    “Us And Them”, Pink Floyd

    Most recommended: “Uprising”, which sounds like Joe Strummer, Gary Glitter, and China Mieville collaborated on the anthem for a proletarian revolt.  The rest of Muse’s output is less evocative, but this one works well.  I might have recommended “Us And Them”, which has a combination of fine musicality and an excellent message, but I’ve recommended Pink Floyd before and Fred still doesn’t have any, so I’m going to guess he just doesn’t like them.

    Given the focus of this blog, I am amused by the presence of Satan’s Disney princess number from “South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut”.  The song itself is one of the few totally SFW songs in the movie, but the video has a couple of bits in questionable taste, as one would expect from South Park.

    “Urami Bushi” – Meiko Kaji (from the second “Kill Bill” soundtrack)
    “Uruk Hai, the” – Howard Shore (from “The Lord of the Rings,” of course)

    and I think we’re supposed to stop at “us,” but since the preceding comment went through the “us–“s, I’ll add those:

    “USA #03” – from the Texhnolyze OST that I haven’t listened to in ages, but holds a place in my heart as it was my first ebay purchase.

    Oh, and searching, should you ever choose something with “un-“, hoo boy. I might even have some non-OST stuff!

  • Urban Decay – The Nameless Mod Soundtrack (Link to someone playing Audiosurf using the track, you can get the soundtrack for free here.)

  • I might even have some non-OST stuff!

    I never will.

  • “Up All Night,” Unwritten Law
    “Up and Away,” Dave Matthews
    “Up from Below,” Edward Sharp & the Magnetic Zeros
    “Up in Smoke,” Blackberry Smoke
    “Up in the Sky,” Oasis
    “Up on Cripple Creek,” The Band (like, 4 versions)

    “Upon the Wind and the Waves,” The Waterboys
    “Uptight,” Green Day
    “Uptown Downhome Good Ol’ Boy,” Garth Brooks
    “Us of Lesser Gods,” Flogging Molly.

    Really, other than the Flogging Molly song, which is utterly sublime, there’s not much worthwhile in there.  I like “Up on Cripple Creek,” “Upbeat Song,” and “Up in the Sky,”  but I assumed I’d have nothing in this category, mostly because I don’t listen to any of the other songs in this group, like, ever.  I’m surprised I have them on my mp3 player.

  • If anyone’s interested, there’s a mashup of Muse vs. Amy Winehouse–“Uprising Back”–available on the Bootie Mashup blog.  The site includes many, many other fun things, like my current favorite:  Metallica vs. Herbie Hancock, “Master of Doin’ It.”

  • cminus

    I do have some of the Bootie mashups, although neither of those.  My favorite so far is LL Cool J vs. Dexy’s Midnight Runners, “Knock Out Eileen”.
