    Solister got a reaction from tailsBOOM! for a status update, This is what happens when your favorite band joins with one of the all time best voca   
    This is what happens when your favorite band joins with one of the all time best vocalists a.k.a. Chester Bennington:
    «video» Solister's Tune of the Day #83 - Chester Bennington vs. Julien-K - Morning After - 2006
    This may be called as the "Electro" mix of the song as you can also find a more Hard-Rock version in the name of Dead by Sunrise (Which is Chester Bennington plus the Julien-K members). Chester Bennington, of course, was the main vocalist of Linkin' Park.
    It's hard to believe that such an amazing band as Julien-K can be so unpopular. Having being partners of one of the most influential 2000's bands (Linkin Park), having a side project with the vocalist of that same band who also is one of the main vocalist we ever had, doing 4 tracks to one of the most popular gaming franchises (Sonic the Hedgehog, one in Sonic Heroes and another in Shadow the Hedgehog as Julien-K and 2 for Sonic Generation under the name of Circuit Freq). And If this wasn't enough, Paul Oakenfold (Voted as #1 DJ in 2000), Deadmau5 and Photek, three of the most influential electronic music artists, have remixed their tracks. Why isn't this band at #1 in the charts?

    Well, I know I've been announcing this for a while but I think now Sonic birthday has gone, I don't think this list will stay for too long. When I've started this,  I never thought I would ran out of ideas as I've over 800 musics, but I didn't considered that 3 of my main artists represent 40% of all this (The Beatles, Julien-K and Fluke, respectively). I'll give more details whenever I take a serious decision, would be a dream to reach on 100 tracks.

    Today was a good day:
    Won new headphones Made some cool walk in the city Launched at my favorite restaurant Drank a peculiar Chinese tea there which maybe is my new favorite drink Re-watched my favorite movie, Rogue One - A Star Wars Story (Something special may come from here) Tomorrow is Sonic Birthday Definitely a day I would like to relive and certainly a hard to forget one.

    I actually was planing to put this as the final track but assuming the today one wasn't one of the bests, I thought to hurry up this one, plus the 2010 decade would have almost no representation.

    Yesterday I stayed out of home for most time and couldn't post the selection, so this means today comes in double dose!

    The first one is basically a cliche. It's one of the main Sonic themes, specially from the new era. Not much my favorite one but it's very important for the series. In the counterpart, the second one is my favorite Sonic track which I found after distance a little from the Sonical tracks. I think I would put it in 3rd place, only preceded by the Julien-K ones.
    And well guys... We are that near. Only two tracks until the end of the Sonic selection, and just 20 until 100 tracks in overall. At the same time I always believed I would reach there, it always looked a hard mission which looked even more near after each day.

    Well... At the same time I would like if this was real, I also don't want. This pretty much shows how the franchise was heavily capitalized. Thanks Disney to buy Lucasfilms, if not, this is how the Skywalker family would look like:

    And basically anyone who follows me a bit knows my connection with the band. This was my very first contact with them and now I have their full main discography on hand. Sadly none of the Sonic tracks. I might not have met them personally but I already have exchanged e-mails with (what I think is) the band members, as well interact (and got interacted) with them via Facebook, being a "super-fan" on their page as well liking (and being liked by) them. Despite not being the most thing I listen today, they have some real good reasons to stay at 1st in my favorite bands list.
    Fun fact: Amir Derakh, who did the main synth in this track, already have worked with Paul Shortino (Who did E.G.G.M.A.N. for SA2) in a rock band called Rough Cutt in the 80's. It was never official but we may believe Shortino presented Julien-K to Sonic Team as this was just a new project Amir started with Ryan Shuck and Anthony Valcic (Long time friends) after they disbanded from Orgy. This was one of their very first track and much likely their first public appearance (Aside some demos on their website, I think). Later on, they joined with Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) and formed Dead by Sunrise, which they released an album in 2009.
