Music has been a huge influence in my life from the good times to the bad. I got my first guitar at the age of six (I'm now 51) and simply fell in love with what I could create with that awesome tool. I've been in a number of bands, written many albums (about 10) and have even produced an album I am comfortable to consider my legacy. I've always loved songs that had a dramatic feeling...emotional meaning and songs that said something important. Hence this thread.

I would like to hear from my fellow ATS'ers with links to songs that mean the most to you. Songs that have a meaning, a story that touches your soul. And I'll simply start with my all time favorite.

Band: Savatage
Album: Streets
Song: Believe

Streets by Savatage is a theme album about a musician who becomes famous but falls to the temptation of fame, booze and drugs. The album follows this person from fame to fall to an interesting place and revelation. Using this song as my choice is kind of a spoiler to the album as it is it's last track and the conclusion to the story. So...I'm providing both the album and the song as separate links.

Personally...this album helped me through the hardest time in my life.

The song: Savatage - Believe


The full album: Savatage - Streets

Are we talking concept (theme) albums, or any music?

I would choose The Wall but it's not really of my generation.

Artist: Dream theater

Album: scenes from a memory

For me it's a masterpiece from start to finish and it's one of my favourite albums of all time.

ARTIST: -TOOL- / A PERFECT CIRCLE
ALBUM(S): ALL OF THEM


These bands have certainly shaped my understanding and reasoning. However, to be honest, I was never into rock until I heard "1984" by Van Halen.. "Hot for Teacher" blew my mind, especially the drum solo in the beginning. From there it was a lot of seventies stuff and then a lot of Bay Area thrash bands. Primus was a huge deal for a while too. It was a great time for music during the eighties and nineties. Today's music for the most part is bleh..
Glad to have the old stuff to fallback on.

"Eye on the tv, cause tragedy thrills me, whatever flavour it happens to be..."

Vicarious, one of my favourite tool songs

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Tupac yet. He's released more music than jayz while he was dead. How is that possible? Well IMO i speculate TPTB did not want the masses to hear all his music which I'm empowers individuals to fight back against oppression. One needs to listen to all his music before making a judgment on his character on just a few mainstream songs.

Black cotton original mix



youtu.be...
Letter to my unborn child original mix


They like to remix his beats with other artists but IMO it does not nearly sound as good as the original. Take a second to listen to the words then you will have a better perspective of his life and why he had to die

"Time Stand Still" and Operation: Mindcrime are both really good ones.
