Songs That Make You Go "wow" Every Time


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.

Tenhi - Salain & Varpuspäivä

The 13th Floor Elevators - Rollercoaster

  3. Kraftwerk - Computer World - Computer World 2

  4. Planet Patrol - Cheap Thrills

  5. Egyptian Lover - Egypt Egypt
