Clair de Lune


DTPVH

I’m not much of a classical guy, and I don’t have any emotional connection to that song, but damn if it doesn’t make me feel things.


Mykel__13

Check out Khatia Buniatishvili performing it live on YouTube. Amazing.

Couldn’t think of anything else I would answer with, amazing choice!

Green Onions


-the_united_kingdom-

Booker T and the M.G.'s, good choice


IthinkTHPS3isjustok

I WAS JUST GONNA FUCKIN SAY THAT that song is amazing!


LMac8806

I’ve always enjoyed Cliffs Of Dover by Eric Johnson.


RemixTape2

Live at Austin is even better.


cleobitchra91

Moonlight Sonata


imatuba

That is a good one.


Pumpkin-Bomb

It opens door in Resident Evil, of course it’s good.


GenericPerson7

Jupiter by Holst. The song is so great, we named the biggest planet in the solar system after the song.


pertobello

In that case, I'll have to say Mars. It has a special place in my heart.


Rare-Notice7417

Mars is metal as hell


pertobello

Agreed. And the first time I heard it, I thought, "wait a minute. Is that the music from the airships in Super Mario 3?"


Rare-Notice7417

Dang they do sound kinda the same. It’s kinda weird but with airships you count to four and with Mars you can count to five.


excusetheblood

The first heavy metal riff, the song Black Sabbath by the band Black Sabbath, was taken from Mars

Orion for me, but your other picks are solid too


AmigoDelDiabla

First two that came to mind were Orion and Marooned as well.


NeroMetallica

To Live is to Die


Hammose

Orion is definitely in my top 5.

Came here to say YYZ but, sure, I'll support your effort!


Allisade

Axle F(oley) -- also known as the Beverly Hills Cop theme song =) I'm not proud, I just really like it - plus, it has a super power most people don't know about... If you ever have a song stuck in your head, singing the Axle F in your head will fix that. It's musical enough to take up the same space, complex enough to be a tune you need to think about 'singing' and complete enough to give your mind the closure it needs to let everything go. It's a secret super power that I've now shared with you - try it out next time, you'll see!


-the_united_kingdom-

You should be proud its a great song


Futures_Trunks

Bing bing


tHottogRotto

Upvoted for being open about your likes. Downvoted for getting the song stuck in my head. Upvoted for this new superpower. Now… how do I get this song out of my head…


lllSnowmanlll

most people just know it as crazy frog


thiswasyouridea

This is my default ringtone, unless it's my parents calling. My Mom is MacGuyver and my Dad is the A Team.


TheWhatyWhaten

Fun fact: The song was created by just splicing and overlaying the demo tracks from a handful of various Casio keyboards

[The Great Gig In The Sky](https://youtu.be/mPGv8L3a_sY) - Pink Floyd I went and saw Roger Waters live and they opened with this song. It was an outdoor pavilion and a beautiful sunny day. One of those days that you especially appreciate. As this woman sang, the biggest wall of black clouds rolled in. By the end of the song it was absolutely pouring rain. At this point no one cared and we all just enjoyed it and watched the show. This was the moment I kissed my wife for the first time. I still think about that moment regularly.


Sure-Telephone3130

Ecstasy of Gold - Ennio Morricone (rip)


W0rk3rB

Good choice! Have you heard Metallica’s cover of it?


Sure-Telephone3130

I have not but I am immediately going to look that up!


W0rk3rB

It’s great! Specifically the recorded version on the album “We All Love Ennio Morricone”. The live versions they have with the orchestra are great, but it’s not Metallica playing. If you ever see them live in concert, they usually start with ecstasy of gold, at least for the last 20 years or so. I think I’ve seen them 3 times in that period?


shanahatescoffee

Mice on Venus by C418


sweatyicecubes

Tool - Triad


Anonymous01234T

A fellow member of the Tool army, I just said this one too! Listening to that song makes you feel absolutely invincible, like you could literally just punch a hole straight through Earth - especially if you're just coming off of Disposition and Reflection.

This is a close tie between this and Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture for my all time favourite piece.


termeownator

Have you heard Beethoven's [String Quartet No. 14 in C♯ minor](https://youtu.be/NdDNeMIvhIo?t=1820)? Man alive, do I envy you if you haven't. That link is to the sixth movement, VI and VII are indescribably beautiful

Robert Miles "Children." It's what I'm ice skating to in my head in my Olympic gold medal winning routine. If you've ever watched ice skating and you listen to the song you'll understand. It wouldn't be hard to imagine doing doubles, triples, spins, and skating backwards faster and faster to the music.

Thank you, I thought I'm gonna scroll through this whole thread without anyone mentioning this masterpiece.

The live recording of 'YYZ' by Rush from their 'Exit Stage Left' live album. The drum solo is awesome, and I get chills when it ends and the crowd gets loud. It's just a really cool performance by three great musicians.

I love instrumentals, they were a staple of the Billboard Chart from the 1950s-70s, but it's hard to remember the names of so many of them because you can't sing along to the lyrics! I have a long list of favorites (and I've probably overlooked a bunch): * Moonglow & Theme from Picnic (1956) * Tea for Two Cha-Cha (1958) * Blue Tango (1952) * The Entertainer (1974) * Sleigh Ride (1948) * Third Man Theme (1949) * Pink Panther Theme (1962) * Calcutta (1961) * Theme from A Summer Place (1960) * Theme from The Apartment (1960) * Wheels (1960) * Washington Square (1963) * Midnight in Moscow (1962) * Java (1964) * Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet (1971) * Classical Gas (1968) * Take Five (1959) * Breezin' (1976) * Star Wars (1977) * Pick up the Pieces (1975) * Love is Blue (1968) * Green Onions (1962) * Stranger on the Shore (1962) * A Swingin' Safari (1962) * That Happy Feeling (1962) * The Horse (1968) * Chariots of Fire (1981) * Theme from 2001 (1973) * Dueling Banjos (1973) * Love's Theme (1974) * Music Box Dancer (1978) * Anything by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass

Ocarina of Time's Kakariko Village without a doubt. Brings back some of my happiest childhood memories.

"Untitled #7 - Sigur Ros," if that counts. There are lyrics, but they're in a made up language. If that doesn't count, then "Crow - Forrest Swords," would be my pick
