You should listen to Muse;



This is just simply amazing, 12 minute symphony, 3 pieces, my personal fav. being part III;










It's a Festivus miracle!!!

Holy cow I can't keep up! I'll try to listen to all of these (some of them I'm already familiar with)

Anyway, here are a couple that I absolutely love that I'll share with you:


This is a band named Anberlin, and the part that absolutely does it for me is when the intensity picks up from an otherwise acoustic song, then when the choir kicks in its unbelievable. If you have 6 minutes to kill and some speakers check it out (quality isn't the greatest)

Not too big of a Radiohead fan, but Fake Plastic Trees is a beautiful and deep song.


Its from FF-X2 (otherwise average game) but this song is astounding. I'm trying to learn it on guitar right now, actually.

Also, does anyone know how to embed youtube videos?
Edit: Thanks!

It's easy. Copy the URL from the Youtube video (use the URL box right above the "Embed Video" box for best results).

Then in your LGW response, paste the link, highlight what you just pasted, and click the "video" button at the top of the response window. Easy peasy, Japanesy.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Considering this is the season, anything by Trans Siberian Orchestra does it for me. Wizards in Winter, and most of all Christmas Canon by them are songs that are mesmerizing.

I knew I liked you for a reason. biggrin.gif

I'll add Suteki Da Ne (from FFX) and Sanctuary (from Kingdom Hearts II) to that as well.

Another song that always gets me is Millstone by Brand New, especially the scream at the 2:46 mark of the song.

I like a lot of classic rock and I could probably put a lot of songs into this category, but this cover of Love, Reign O'er Me by Pearl Jam live at the VH1 Rock Honors is really doing it for me right now

Finding some nice gems I did not have before - thanks!

I'll try and suggest a few that are off the radar:

Big fan of Afghan Whigs... here's one that is a bit different from them (with Marcy Mays from Scrawl):


Summertime by Angélique Kidjo:


More well know, but 'Haiti' by Arcade Fire is such a great song:


A poppy celtic song that always picks me up:


Great song from the end of the movie 'Millions':


August's Rhapsody from 'August Rush':


Bjork has just such a unique voice that I can't help but stop and listen:


Bobby Womack's 'Across 110th Street':


Listening to this song will not turn you ***, I swear:


The Veil's 'Vicious Traditions' is incredible:




Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

"For my game, I don't need to score the goal," Konstantinov once explained. "I need someone to start thinking about me and forgetting about scoring goals."

Yeah, you can always count on a song from a video game to make a list like this.

Speaking of which, if you're a Nobuo Uematsu fan (composed the music for the FF series, until leaving after FFX), then you should check out some of the songs from Lost Odyssey from the Xbox360. It's a very Final Fantasy-ish game, and N.U. composed the music for it as well. A few songs to look for would be "A Formidable Enemy Appears", "A Sign Of Hope" and "Demonic Infringement". (I'll try and provide links when I'm home from work).

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.
