Good songs will always stand the test of time. If you can still listen to it twenty years later and it still sounds good and can't be dated (ie,
cheesy instruments or melodies that give away the time and fad ) then it qualifies as a classic.
What does it for me are the recordings of Pat Metheny Group.
THE MISSION ..is one of my all time favorite movies,and yes..the music was awesome...as well as those scenic shots.
Great take on a true story...and another one I recommend to the younger crowd .
Yes..those of you who have never seen The Mission or Network....please rent them those two oldies..you won't be sorry. The Mission is full of huge
stars as well..Robert De Niro,and Jeremy Irons to name two.

I'm glad I stumbled on to this thread... I'm being introduced to some amazing music that I probably would never have known about had it not been for
For me, I don't know what it is about Liszt... but every time I hear one of his compositions, the world just completely stops for me. One of my all
time favourites is Mazeppa... I particulairly enjoy Vladimir Ovchinnikov's interpretation:
This one might seem a bit silly, but I absolutely adore the intro the the tv show 'Departures'
It follows three friends who travelled around the world for a few years (it airs on OLN here in Canada). Every time I hear this little one minute
intro at the beginning of the show, a huge smile grows on my face. I don't know what it is about it, but for at least one minute, all the bad things
disappear and all I can think about are the things I love about this place... it's a nice, peaceful feeling. Cheesy, I know, but oh well... we can't
pick and choose what moves us, right?
And a few more that make time slow down for me:
Yeah, I should stop now... because, believe me, I could go on forever.

Bachman Turner Overdrive - LOOKIN' OUT FOR NO.1
Bachman-Turner Overdrive - Blue Collar:
Walk your street
And I'll walk mine
And should we meet
Would you spare me some time?
'Cause you should see my world ,
Meet my kind, and before you judge our minds
Sleep your sleep
I'm awake and alive
I keep late hours
You're nine to five
So I would like you to know
I need the quiet hours to create in this world of mine
I'd like you to know at four in the morning, things are comin' to mind
All I see, all I've done, and those I hope to find
I'd like to remind you at four in the morning my world is very still
The air is fresh under diamond skies, makes me glad to be alive
You keep that beat
And I keep mine
Your restless face
Is no longer mine
I rest my feet while this world's in heat and I wish that you could do the same
OMG, I could just about take most of you to bed and make you my lover! So much great music in this thread, and there's one thing I love, its when
ppl just GET this kind of music. Sigur Ros, Thom Yorke, Bjork (vespertine, best album beauty wise), Mike Oldfield, etc I could go on.... The one
thing I will add (because I'm impressed with all the stuff previously posted) is this song (and other in the series as well) that moved me. But not
in the usual way that music moves me. Here's a piece done by a guy who gets you thinking, and moves your thoughts, thats for sure.
Music is amazing. I've been drinking and listening to The Doors and Type O mainly, all night.
What im listening to, a great song by TON very dark and beautiful at the same time.
As for older music, this is the first piece I learned on classical guitar. So beautiful.
Val is a lovely player.
I love metal, blues, classical. So much, that there's no point in listing what I like. Hopefully soon I can get a renaissance lute and begin to become
a musician of a different instrument other than acoustic/electric guitar. That's the main thing i've been wanting.
Either way, I love music. One of the only things that can really, truly release my soul for a moment while on this Earth. Whether it's Tupac,
Classical, different lutes, modern metal. Doesn't matter.

The is a cover by Glenn Richards, Paul Kelly and Missy Higgins of a Kev Carmody song, an Aboriginal Australian artist, this has to be one of the
saddest songs i know. It moves me as it reminds me of rough times.
