You need to create Google API key and build multimedia/minitube with that, inserting MINITUBE_GOOGLE_API_KEY=... into /etc/make.conf

    If installing:
        Google is now requiring an API key in order to access YouTube Data
        web services.

        To obtain a key:

        1. Create a new project at

        2. Select newly created project and go to Enable API,
           go to APIs & auth / APIs, select the Youtube Data API
           and click Enable.

        3. Go to Credentials, click Create Credentials and choose API key.

        4. If you are going to build minitube from ports, set
           MINITUBE_GOOGLE_API_KEY=your_key in make.conf. If you use package
           set GOOGLE_API_KEY environment variable to your key.

One glorious day I will port PCSX2 to FreeBSD, only to play one of the best JRPGs ever made: Shadow Hearts
To honor this fine piece of work, let's listen to a town music from the game (looped):

(well, it's actually from the second game: Shadow Hearts: Covenant. Not bad either)

Now, about "favorites" – for me, that's music that surprises and fascinates me, in terms of musical ideas.

Example #1: The "original" heavy metal:

Example #2: Sampling to the absurd max:

well, you can also do pretty "funky" things with sampling …
just as a side note :D

Example #3: Only ONE single musical idea, but it's "genius":

Example #4: One idea, but developed over a long time in tiniest steps ("minimal music"):
(that's the construction principle of many trance and techno tracks…)

Example #5: One basic motive, but surprising ALL THE TIME like a firework:
(there exists a lot in this category, picking a work of the italian mastermind who also composed for the movie "The Godfather" ;) )

Well, I could go on. For me, it's not a question of genre.

Disclaimer: I'm (hobby) musician with lots of stage experience, I learned the violin, but also play e.g. guitar, bass, drums, piano, just for fun :D

Ok, adding some own work here: Covering famous Michael Jackson using VIM (well, writing assembly code for the 6502 and C64 SID, hehe):
