View Full Version : A song that give you an emotion that nothing else can.

Usually grief or despair, maybe an overwhelming sense of joy?
Just a song that overloads your mind with a crazy emotion out of nowhere that only that song gives.
Some people may not have found a truly impacting song.
Mine is Space Oddity by Bowie.
Exceptional storytelling that gets me right into the mind of Major Tom. The unresolved ending of lost communication leaves me feeling a huge sense of uneasiness and i always feel like im the one up in space all alone. Then i feel the despair when i lose communication and control of the vessel only to look back at earth knowing all is lost.

There is a sort of animalistic feel I get from Careful With That Axe Eugene, specifically "Live at Pompeii". Strangely Rush's The Main Monkey Business reminds me of this feeling.
Sometimes when I listen to Lenny Breau, despite his genius, I feel depressed. This is because I remember that someone strangled him. Not that I have trouble celebrating what he gave us, before his untimely and in my opinion tragic death... :(
Good thread idea.

I get a strange feeling sometimes when I really get into listening to Meshuggah. Like if I'm listening with a decent pair of headphones to the first 5 tracks of Chaosphere, or Bleed on obZen. It's pretty much indescribable, but something like the 'fuck yeah' feeling you (I hope, this is going to require a lot of relating to) get when listening to a good metal riff, combined with a sense of awed confusion trying to count the time signature, combined with something else.
Also, I like In The Halls of Awaiting by Insomnium, I find it strangely emotionally uplifting for something so melancholic.

all the music i like builds strong emotions in me.i can't just pick one because they produce very different feelings but equally as strong. i will however post one song just to contribute something. first there is a mountain by donovan. if you haven't heard it go listen to it now. first time i heard it i honestly laughed pretty hard. i still get a large grin on my face when i listen to it. it doesn't matter how shitty a day i've had that song will aways put me in a good mood.

Yes. This is the point of music!
And I will mention that this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqD3Df5Jcbc) makes me want to fucking destroy everything (in a good way). The part starting at 2:55 is just amazing.

Go ahead, call it a cliche and attack my "old fashioned taste" in music, but this entire sonata is a masterpiece.

Johnny Cash - Hurt.
I know he's not the original artist. The NIN version is good music too, but it's Johnny's that gets me.

VAST - Pretty when you cry
My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion kicks me in the face every time I hear it.
