Hello all, 

 

I wish to gauge some people in what they listen to, truth be told most of the songs I've found and really liked have actually been on TV shows. And if truth be told when I was younger the music I enjoyed the most was Reggae / Hip hop. I ignored most other types of music and avoided listening to the radio altogether, and my little sister has a better music knowledge than I do these days haha. Most songs I list to her via email she's already heard a year before I've ever even knew it existed haha (I've only discovered Pearl Jam in the last week). 

 

So, does anybody have any songs that have a heavy Piano, Violin or saxophone influence? It doesn't have to be limited to an English based song. 

 

Here is a list of the last few songs I've heard, liked and saved. They're in no particular genre:

 

Billie Eilish - Six Feet Under 
 
 
The Last Kingdom Soundtrack (Uhtreds sons death)
 
knockin' on heaven's door piano (Lucifer TV show version)
 
Medley - Deborah Loves Rudy 
 
Ludovico Einaudi-Nuvole Bianche
 
John Swihart - You're all alone
 
Comptine d'Un Autre Été- Die fabelhafte Welt der Amélie Piano 
 
The Vikings are told of ragnars death (Vikings Season 3 soundtrack)
 
The Middle East - Deep Water
 
Massive Attack - Paradise Circus
 
Jesus and Lafayette (true blood, 0.15 seconds in)
 
Daughter - Candles
 
The Shins - Simple Song
 
Peacock Affect - I wrote this in the dark
 
Wardruna - Helvegen (The Way To Hel)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I know I said Non - Star wars music but here's my favorite violin song at the moment:

There is a youtube channel called "ThePianoGuys" that plays several pieces with cellos and pianos.

Also there is Lindsey Stirling who is a violinist. You could find most of her work on youtube.

Thank you FS for past and current modding help!

I believe I'm subscribed to ThePianoGuys already. 

Lindsey Sterling's a new one. Thanks jc2! 

 

I'm falling in love with these guys music:

I mostly just listen to certain video game or anime soundtracks. Some movies too (Like Blade Runner and Mad Max Fury Road for example). It depends on what I feel like listening to, I suppose. I've been listening to some Carpenter Brut and Gorillaz as of late.

I love listening to movie soundtracks. 

 

Carpenter Brut is a new one for me but I've been listening to Gorillaz for a while now, they're great.

I've heard of his channel for a couple of month, he has a version of The Force Theme that lasts an hour that's pretty spectacular. 

 

A lot of his videos keep getting taken down though, so I'd look out for that.

Apologies that came out wrong haha, I should of said "He has a lot of good videos, but some are getting taken down so don't be too upset when you can't find it". Apologies. 

Did anyone watch the last episode of Flash? That paired with this song almost bought a tear to my eye:

In honor of the recently passed Chris Cornell, here are some of my favorite performances of his.
 
These are all songs you won't typically find on any "Best of" lists. Nonetheless, I believe these more accurately represent what he was capable of.
 
Beyond the Wheel
 

 
Just to show off his famously high vocal range. Man he could really belt out those high notes. Definitely a grunge/metal kind of feel to it, which is why I like it so much.
 
 
Like a Stone (acoustic)
 

 
So there are two versions of this song. The album version is a little more upbeat and melancholic, but this acoustic version is much more longing and heartbreaking.
When asked by bassist Tim Commerford what the song was about, he responded "It's about waiting to die"
 
 
Black Rain
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ka5IzbKC3TY
 
Nominated for the Grammy in 2011 for Best Hard Rock Performance, but lost to New Fang by Them Crooked Vultures. They were robbed if you ask me. I love this song.

 

Oh, I should also mention that he was 47 during this performance. Most rock vocalists by this age have pretty much lost their voices
 
 
Reach Down
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGM1MToTxGA
 
An 11 minute ballad Chris wrote for his friend who had recently committed suicide. This features some of his best vocals and an amazing solo courtesy of Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready. I know 11 minutes seems long, but it is well worth the listen.

Now this is a reply!

 

I really like the songs you've posted. Like a Stone is a heartbreaking song, I'd love to have heard him sing it live. RIP.
