More UNKLE. This one opened up a whole new door for me.

It's as heavenly as it is dark.

THE greatest hip-hop track I've ever heard. And yet Lil Wayne is everywhere.


Chills every time.

Here's a whole playlist I've put together of some of the most laid-back music you'll come across.

I'm a blues guitar fan and recently discovered this guy - Gary Clark Jr - through Eric Clapton's crossroads concert. He's amazing, real raw and expressive. The first link is i think his most well known song, the second some live footage from Bonaroo (wish id been there) that sounds amazing. The guy sounds like Hendrix! beautiful sick overdriven, fuzz guitar sounds, love it. Hope you enjoy, spread the word and watch out, this guys too cool -

This one doesn't stop me in my tracks as much as it slams me to the ground. Repeatedly. Off a cliff.

I have yet to hear anything more BRUTAL!

Well played.

My apologies DB. I am sure that ↑this↑ was not exactly what you were looking for, but it did accomplish the desired goal, that had been given. I can go no further. As a matter of fact, I don't think I even made it to the bottom of that post, before frantically scrolling back up.

Tool - Lateralus

Nothing is more mind gobbeling than this song, when you actually sit down and listen to it, it changes meaning for me about every 3 months as i expand my understanding of the world.

Tool use to be my favortie band, but Maynard is a freak(not in a good way), when you hear songs like:
"hooker with a penis" with lyrics like(just one of the examples):
"All you know about me is what I've sold you,
Dumb #.
I sold out long before you ever even heard my name.
I sold my soul to make a record,
Dip #,
And then you bought one."

Then I'm out, not to mention his last band, bahahah, fail. Just another occultist freak imo. By the way I've got a Led Zeppelin tattoo on my back that I want to get burnt off after learning these freaks also sold their soul to the devil. Mostly I hate 99.9% of popular artists and music, as all most all of them have figuratively and/or literally sold their soul to the devil, I want nothing to do with that crap.

Anyway with that out the way, now I try to only listen to songs that have some decency in their lyrics(which are few and far between) like this:
Lauren Hill(singing about how she wants out of the corrupt system)

And this, Whacko Jacko I know, but did the illuminati set him up all along and kill him, hmmmmm, words hit home though,.

Many others, but I dont want to clog up the thread.

Wondering if the like-minded also have like-interests and for that matter tastes in music. I'm seeing a common theme already throughout all of the songs/videos posted and I believe this speaks well on our behalf in terms of being in touch with ourselves and our surroundings and our ability to dig deep within ourselves and external to ourselves enough to be able to appreciate the deeper meaning and purpose in all things. It's funny because I had some musicians immediately in mind upon reading the OP and had every intention of making sure certain artists were represented here but you all did a fine job of posting my faves... Jerry Garcia, NIN, Radiohead, TooL, Opeth... then there's anything by Steven Wilson so thanks for posting some Porcupine Tree (possibly the least known and under-appreciated and no doubt in the all time top best bands category - legend - just wait 10-20 more years! ).

We must represent some Floyd and no song more appropriate perhaps than "Sheep" (by the way in case you've never read the lyrics check them out as they are possible even more relevant today):

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away;
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
You better watch out,
There may be dogs about
I've looked over Jordan, and I have seen
Things are not what they seem.

I'm going to hammer Porcupine Tree because if you don't know by now you MUST:

Anesthetize Part 1:

Because of who we are
We react in mock surprise
The curse of "there must be more"
So don't breathe here,
Don't leave your bags
I simply am not here
No way I...
Shut up, be happy
Stop whining please
We're lost in the mall
Shuffling through the stores like zombies
What is the point?
What can money buy?

Anesthetize Part 2:

Water so warm that day (water so warm that day)
I counted out the waves (I counted out the waves)
As they broke into shore
I smiled into the sun

I can't take the staring and the sympathy
And I don't like the questions,
"How do you feel?"
"How's it going in school?"
"Do you wanna talk about it?"

I don't really know
If I care what is normal
And I'm not really sure
If the pills I've been taking are helping
I'm wasting my life
Hurting inside
I don't really know
And I'm not really sure...

This has become a full time career
To die young would take only 21 years
Gun down a school or blow up a car
The media circus will make you a star
Dark matter flowing out on to a tape
Is only as loud as the silence it breaks
Most things decay in a matter of days
The product is sold the memory fades

At the age of sixteen
I grew out of hope
I regarded the cosmos
Through a circle of rope
So I threw out my plans
Ran on to the wheel
And emptied my head
Of all childish ideals
The sleep of no feeling
Made a good living
By dying it's true
As the world in my TV
Leaked onto my shoes

Okay moving on to some others... but they're entire album catalogue I can't recommend enough!

I should have strove,
I should have fought,
I should have shown a little love.
A little love.
You're in my heart,
You're in my heart.
But that's the easy way out.

So I’m shouting this out for you
And I know you’ll never hear me
And I know there never will be
The world I always dreamed of
The world in which you are a part.
Keep on going
We keep on going
And glowing
We keep on glowing

You're here
With nowhere left to go
With nowhere left to go
You feel
Your facing is alone
Your facing is alone
So I'm singin this for You
Yeah, I'm singin this for You
So You don't have to

So I'm pretty sure I know what "secrets" they're talking about... You?

Secrets to be told
Out of orbit
And I always will
The pot is full
Let me take control
Let me take control
The pot is full
Of secrets to be told
Secrets to be told

The moon is high up on a mountain
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
Waiting on the rapture
Singing we're here to keep your? down
we'll feed you to the hounds
To the Daily Mail, to get up, together
You made a pig's ear, you made a mistake
Paid off security and got through the gate
You got away with it but we lie in wait eeeh
ehhh eeeh

I'll stop there cuz I could go on and on and on...

Music that stops me in my tracks...

This is Steven Wilson's (from Porcupine Tree) first track off his second solo album. Worth the time to see what happens alone..

...which stopped me in my tracks for sure!

Watch @ 1:21!!!

Yeah thanks! I didn't realize the "related" portion of the urls was needed to embed the videos...

By the way, listening to any of these songs twice had me hooked for life! I'd encourage you all to give at least a listen or two.

I was recently stopped in my tracks by this beautiful song. The guy was a Korean singer song-writer called Kim Kwang-seok, sadly no longer with us. The song featured in Korean movie The Classic.

Press play and shut your eyes just for a few minutes.
