Deep Forest - "Night Bird"

I uploaded this for the LISTEN OR DIE thing. It's maybe not the most beautiful song ever ("Sweet Lullaby" by the same people edges it anyway), it's pretty close.

1. Dead Can Dance - The Host of Seraphim
2. Current 93 - A Song For Douglas After He's Dead
3. Paul Giovanni & Magnet - Willows Song
4. My Dying Bride - Your Shameful Heaven
5. Sol Invictus - The Praties Song
6. Dead Can Dance - The Wind That Shakes the Barley
7. My Dying Bride - Sear Me MCMXC III
8. Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence
9. Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows - Va(r)nitas, Vanitas... (...Omnia Vanitas)
10. Sieben - Loves Promise
11. Ulver - Hyme 01: Of Wolf and Fear *
12. Skyclad - Moongleam and Meadowsweet
13. Death in June - Rose Clouds of Holocaust
14. My Dying Bride - The Crown of Sympathy

I doubt anyone will agree with me, but if anyone has not heard 'The Host of Seraphim' by Dead Can Dance I urge you to do yourself a really big favour.



*These are in no way jokes.

17. Burzum - Han Some Reiste *




Nah, I'd say it's one of Vikernes' poorest tracks, he is simply not a keyboardist. Burzum has way better tracks, Det Som En Gang Var being on my top.

Easily Burzums most evocative keyboard track. The track is an incredible exercise in minimalism. I can barely think of anyone who could take, what, ten notes and one basic riff and turn it into something so atmospheric and powerful, with just the keyboard. It's excellent, and its incredible communication: even before I knew the tracks name meant 'He Who Journeyed', It conveyed the sense of travelling through a forest to me. I just think it's brilliant: it's a milestone I strive toward in my own electronic music. Simple, un-pretentious, and marvellous. No, it's not the best Burzum track (Ea, Lord of the Depths) but it is the most beautiful.

Besides, on any objective level, how can you call Han Som Reiste poor next to, say, Svart Troner, or Dungeons of Darkness?

EDIT; At their best, Dead Can Dance are electrifying, and at their least they are still a very entertaining ethereal take on world music. Check out:

The Wind That Shakes The Barley
Yulunga

There's plenty more on youtube. Lisa Gerrards voice is just...unbelievable.

1) Well, the best keyboard track - yes. I tought you meant the best overall track.

2) True, as to the beauty by minimalism, it is amazing. I compose music myself, and I can say Vikernes' music has meant a lot.

3) Svarte Troner and Dungeons Of Darkness truly are crap, and I guess it's that kind of neo-modern crap that makes you think it's good because you don't inderstand it. Like other noise ambient.

I wonder if anybody's noticed that only one person on this board gives a fuck about this band called Clann Zu or whatever.

A song I've been listening to a lot lately that I would classify as 'beautiful' would be Harvest by Opeth. It's pretty awesome. Also, the opening of Edge of Sanity's Crimson has a very ethereal quality to it for my ears.

@ Storm: You mean Crimson II right? Because Crimson just starts with Dan Swano growling and rocking some guitar. Which is awesome, but not exactly ethereal.

If we were to mention any EoS track, I would mention Enigma. The clean singing and violin are beautiful, but there are also unbelievable moments in the pure DM portions.

"ENIGMA! UNHOLY! UNGODLY! COMMANDER OF THE REGENERATION!
INSIDIOUS AND CAUGHT. IMPLOOOORED...BY DISGRACE

No, I actually meant the original Crimson. The guitar tone just has a spacey quality that I really like, and Swano's voice just sounds sort of... I dunno, distant. It works so well and I really think it has a sort of quality that I classify as beautiful.

Nothing wrong with Death in Junes message. The only political tie I've heard of them having is to the green anarchists. The reason they're called fascist is partly misinterpretation of their lyrics, partly because Douglas P is wierd and deliberately controversial, partly because the British socialist left considers any political movement that references neitzschean or darwinist ideas fascist, and, well, there you go. Fascists tend to be boring, tawdry, middle class farmers and shop keepers. Not avant-garde musicians. You can confirm this by actually reading DI6's lyrics, although, to be honest, they don't make it easy. Rose Clouds of Holocaust is about the break-up of a long term relationship, believe it or not.

There's a good few EBM/futurepop songs that I just think are, well, beautiful. Uplifting music that makes me want to run somewhere, makes me feel something transcendent. The trancey interlude in that song is one of the best fucking things to ever happen to electronic music. I was also considering 'Approaching Lightspeed' by Wolfsheim and 'Call the Ships to Port' by Covenant.

Tsewer Beta- "Marl 1 (You'll Never Guess Mix)" is wonderful, IMHO.
Brian Eno's Music for Airports is fairly beautiful, too, in a subdued, ambient sorta way.

The Marl 1 track is at the bottom.

What baffles me about this is that you're totally right. I never think of Destroyer as particularly beautiful because of the weird trembling croak of Bejar's voice but at the same time he has a knack for making some singularly sublime tunes.

It is weird isn't it? Something about the way he'll be singing and then rush in a long sentence that normally wouldn't fit with the beat. Plus he just sound extremely honest and it's addicting!

This thread is now about Dan Bejar, I think.

Destroyer's Rubies is so damn awesome. It gets better with every listen, and each new listen reveals better cohesion from track to track. It's one of the best, most well-thought-out albums released this year.

Well, Krug is a fantastic lyricist.

Surprises abound in this "Beautiful song" thing, though: the final track on Barenaked Ladies' Maroon is a bizarre little waltz about crashing your car and it's quite pretty as is, considering how absurd it is, but then right before the four-minute mark a hidden song comes up and damned if it isn't absolutely gorgeous. (For the record, the track comes up as "Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel / Hidden Sun" on my iTunes, the latter being the hidden track and the former being the song proper.)

Oh, and I am pretty sure that like eight to ten Final Fantasy songs (Owen Pallett, not Nobuo Unspellablename) should be mentioned in here.
