Topic stolen from another forum.
you only get 2, so make em' good. (and no cheating!)

It could be a song that changed your life in a way, or just your favorite song, or a good song by a undescovered band that you think needs descovering, or whatever.  preferably give a links to where we could listen to your songs.

ok 1 2 3 go!

Xasthur - In The Hate of Battle (or Soul Abduction Ceremony)
Anorexia Nervosa - Enter The Church Of Fornication

With both of these songs, you'd have to listen the whole way through, not just get put off by the vocals, to understand why I'd suggest them.

Good topic BTW.  I'm gonna give an effort to try and listen to everyone's 2 songs that they post.

Rage Against The Machine - Wake Up (changed my life)
Slipknot - Wait and Bleed

Great thread idea. 2 is an excellent number for this sort of deal.

Halo - "Feel" (Good luck getting hold of that one, damn record company dropping them :( )

My Dying Bride - Grace Unhearing

Neither are groundbreaking or anything, just two of my favourites right now

Jeff Buckley - Dream Brother.
The Smashing Pumpkins - Soma.

First one, just a very beautiful, very calming song i think people should hear. The last one is being pimped because well..it's my favourite song (which has influenced many an online alias may i add).

The Postal Service - Such Great Hights
I Am Kloot - Proof

Just happens to be my two favorite songs at the moment and has been ever since I heard them the first time. I guess they aint that special but they have somehow helped my mood and life during some bad stuff.

Yay for good music and nice lyrics (in my humble opinion).

what a bastard topic! only 2 choices...

Rearviewmirror - Pearl Jam
Feeling So Real - Moby

Neither of these are my "favorite" songs, but they both had very profound effects on my life. These are both songs you have to *feel* to appreciate, Rearviewmirror being particularly powerful when youa re feeling a bit angsty or down, and Feeling So Real having the exceptional abilty to lift ones spirits. I suggest that your first listen to feeling so real be done with your eyes closed, with the volume at high level and the bass turned up.

Oh yeah, if you want to give Feeling So Real a listen, make sure you get the album version (from "Everything is Wrong) because moby had a tendency of remixing all of his earlier work 435645 times. Say what you will about him now, but "Everything Is Wrong" continues to be one of the most relevant and exceptionally produced electronic albums of all time.

Both of mine are from one artist, but he's had a huge impact on how I write, and play music.


Hawksley Workman - We Will Still Need a Song
Hawksley Workman -  Tarantulove

This is actually a difficult thread too, to decide on just two songs, especially for those of us who delve deeply into music.

Joe Satriani - Day at the Beach
Joe Satriani - The Forgotten (Part 1)

Some of the best guitar work I have ever heard.  Satriani is, in my opinion, the best guitarist alive today.
(Those both count as one song since they are so short and are really almost continuations of each other.)

Talvin Singh - Butterfly

The man can take a Tabla and a Sitar and make some of the coolest music ever with them.  It's frikking amazing.


I will be linking these up to MP3s later tonight when I get home and have FTP access, and I ask that other do as well if at all possible.  Makes it easier on us that don't have web crawlers to find our music files, and/or don't want to wait for P2P downloads.

John Cage - “4:33?

And since I can't think of another song that'd have the same universal tone, I'll say “nothing.?

So, “4:33? and nothing.  :D



Seriously, since most of my appreciation of music is wrapped up in my personal tastes & feelings, I don't feel qualified in figuring something has universal appeal.  Particularly when even my best friends often hate songs that I absolutely adore.

The first one would be Throbbing Gristle's "Very Friendly".

The second one might change, but right now it'd be Current 93's "Dormition and Dominion".

Depends on the genre. With respect to "indie" rock, I think

Wire - Outdoor Miner

and

The Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning

are required listening.

The Decemberists - The Legionnaire's Lament
Against Me! - Beginning in an Ending

This was uber-difficult to decide but in the end I chose the Decemberists because everyone should like that song and Against Me! because it's the best acoustic song I've ever heard.

Punky Japanese Rock Band Alert~!!

Guitar Vader- "Perfect Bird" from the album "From Dusk"
Judy and Mary- "Brand New Wave Upper Ground" from the album "Warp" (and others)

I might upload some Flash versions of those songs later, if time permits. '-'

Love The Pillows, but couldn't really think of a single song to place as a "must hear".  All their stuff as a whole is really , really good.

Nick Drake - "Time Has Told Me" always relaxes me when I'm stressed out. As does Opeth - ...well, any Opeth song.

Also, uhh, I guess Rush - Entré Nous. Nobody really pays attention to that song, but it owns.

There are many others I love, but I feel that everyone either has probably heard them or would be turned off by their metalness.

Blood Brothers - Love Rhymes With Hideous Car Wreck
