Title: Musical Emotions (Non-Lyrical music)
Post by: dbeechum on February 16, 2011, 11:33:55 PM
Just looked at my ipod and the top 25 played recently and was surprised to see the number of non-lyric laden music that I had in there.

The top 2 tracks included this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRLdhFVzqt4 (a Santa Monica duo that make nothing but music for music and trailers - see this song in a trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2O-0-fQOOs kicks in at about 23 seconds)

This one..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dt4Vqg7Qcc - small Aussie duo - awesome, creepy

and finally rounding out the top 3
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOoNFFKwNts - a song so long that it requires two parts on youtube and it's own drink!

What's in your arsenal of non-vocal music. What gets you?

Drew, I always go for instrumentals rather than lyrics (with just a few exceptions).  If you like film scores you might like modern classical music which I suppose is the ultimate instrumental.  I like the last two clips; these are similar to what I listen to when I'm not listening to classical or jazz.  Here are some of my recent favorite bands -

Barky
Terminal 4
El Michels Affair
The New Mastersounds
DoMakeSayThink
Nels Cline (albums - Coward, Initiate, Destroy All, Instrumentals)
Tin Hat Trio
Muddy World
Russian Circles

Cheers, j

I am a jazz lover...so the choices are numerous.

Here's a cool little trio MMW.

or some Pat Metheny Group.

The Meters...Cissy Strut.

SRV...Lenny.

and quite possibly one of the most studied pieces of all time.

Outside of the requisite 20 minutes of pure insturmentals per album in my Pink Floyd collection, not much. Santana, and a few random banjo pieces here and there, that's about it.

One thing I like is chillout rythmic ambient music, electronic or otherwise. Bleeps and clicks not so much...  ???

I think this particular cd got plum wore out: Banco De Gaia's Maya (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm5wkTpfwT4). Or how about the the Orb's Little Fluffy Clouds (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHixChYgGRI&playnext=1&list=PL3E6D72E8C81285B1).

For a guy who loves punk, metal, rock and blues,it's strange to think that two of my absolute favorite pieces of music are Mozart's rondo allegro in D minor, and Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata

Also I remember back in the late '90s, the local alt station would play this 4-minute long techno version of the Knight Rider theme. That was awesome driving music.  ;D

I'm with Bluesman, I've got piles of jazz on my mp3 player. Miles Davis, Red Garland, Bill Evans are some favorites.

Miles is the king, though. No one will ever be this cool again:

Also pretty much anything by Beethoven.

Here's a cool little trio MMW.

Speaking of musical emotions; how about this "Hey Joe" cover by MMW and Marc Ribot
