Songs That Make You Go "wow" Every Time

:smashed:

Igor Stravinsky - Epitaphium for flute, clarinet and harp
The most amazing minute and some 40 seconds

Ween - The Stallion Pt.3
And everything else by the best band ever.

Lykathea Aflame - On the way home and Flowering entities

Cecil Taylor - Anything

Saul Williams - Children of the night

Ephat Mujuru - Katura
The most chilled, relaxing music ever

The Residents - Krafty Cheese
If I had to choose just one song by them that’s my favorite, I guess this is it, even though everything they did around 72-82 is mindblowing.

AMM - Generative Theme III
Everything they’ve done is amazing but this is just haunting.

Krzysztof Penderecki - uhh, The dream of Jacob?
Again, difficult to choose.

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - FC the Freedom Club or Babydoctor

Léo Ferré - Les anarchistes, Je te donne, Muss es sein es muss sein
Even if I don’t understand french that well, these are some of the most perfect songs ever.

Mark Lanegan - Judas Touch, The Pendulum, Skeletal History

Edgard Varése - Un grand sommeil noir

Tenhi - Salain & Varpuspäivä

This is a wonderful topic. I look forward to investigating what others consider to be moving music in hopes to broaden my own tastes -

These are in no particular order - I am purposely leaving out classical and opera because it would be massive.

  1. Aphex Twin - Melody from Mars- song 11 - Such a silly song. I can listen to this and never get bored of it.

  2. Aphex Twin - I care because you do - Alberto Balsalm

  3. Kraftwerk - Computer World - Computer World 2

  4. Planet Patrol - Cheap Thrills

  5. Egyptian Lover - Egypt Egypt

  6. Twilight 22 - Electric Kingdom

  7. FSOL - Dead Cities - Antique Toy

  8. Jega - Intron

  9. Panacea - Tron

  10. The Prodigy - Wind it Up (too many songs to mention)

  11. Squarepusher - Hard Normal Daddy - Beep Street

  12. Al Di Meola - Land of the Midnight Sun

  13. Herb Alpert - Zorba the Greek

  14. Duran Duran - Planet Earth

  15. Enya - The Celts

  16. Housemartins - The People who Grinned themselves to Death - We’re not going back

  19. The Cure - Disintegration - Love Song

  20. Depeche Mode - Violator - Enjoy The Silence

  21. David Bowie - Ground Control to Major Tom

  22. Cranberries - When you’re Gone

I will have to add to this soon - I have to step out during this little compilation ;)
