What song moves me?? (in Contests)

Ernest-Scribbler June 1 2008 3:27 AM EDT

The rules are simple. The first person to name a song that i really like wins 1 mil cb$. I will point out something, there are 2 ways this can happen, by randomly guessing one of my favourite songs. or by introducing me to something great and new ( to me ).

I just need a song title and an artist.

Tyriel [123456789] June 1 2008 3:35 AM EDT

Beast and the Harlot by Avenged Sevenfold
Hysteria by Muse
The White One is Evil by Elliot Minor
One Winged Angel from Final Fantasy (It's Sephiroth's song! You must like it!)
Gasolina (Remix) by Daddy Yankee featuring Pitbull and N.O.R.E.

Just some songs that I enjoy. :)

RVT June 1 2008 3:35 AM EDT

Artist: Lola Ray
Song: Plague, Automatic Girl, What it feels like ( the whole fist album ''I Don't know you")

Windwalker June 1 2008 3:36 AM EDT

Stevie Ray Vaughans version of Little Wing is great.

Mastodont June 1 2008 4:33 AM EDT


Sigur ros - Agaetis byrjun

Ernest-Scribbler June 1 2008 4:36 AM EDT

For a little hint, i like both sigur Ross amd muse, neither songs where winners, but maybe that a clue!

iBananco [Blue Army] June 1 2008 4:50 AM EDT

Muse - Knights of Cydonia?

QBJohnnywas June 1 2008 5:04 AM EDT

You know that Sigur Ros are giving a free track at the moment? It's called Gobbledigook and it's pretty damn good.

Sigur Ros' Hoppipolla never fails to move me so I'll suggest that as a possibility for one of your favourites.

In the meantime if you want something actually along similar lines to them go and search out Talk Talk. Their albums: The Colour of Spring, Spirit of Eden and
Laughing Stock are all beautiful records, moving in the same sort of area as Sigur Ros.

If you want song and title then check out "happiness is easy" by Talk Talk.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] June 1 2008 5:05 AM EDT

Technotronic - Move This

QBJohnnywas June 1 2008 5:10 AM EDT

Oh and the free track is at their website and it really is a good track. It says sign -up is required but it's minimal input needed.

Looks like their next album might be a good one.


AdminG Beee June 1 2008 5:13 AM EDT

The Drugs Don't Work by The Verve always moves wifey to tears.

On a side note, Bittersweet Symphony by the same group always "moves me" too.
Don't you just want to slap the lead singer in their video ? I love the song though :)

Mastodont June 1 2008 5:14 AM EDT

Ok one more try.

Sigur Ross - Hoppipolla

A mix between sigur ross and muse, perhaps Smashing pumpkins - 1979 or Perfect.

8DEOTWP June 1 2008 5:18 AM EDT

Apache Indian - Boom Shakalaka

spydah June 1 2008 7:36 AM EDT

Les Claypool - Anything he has ever done is magic.

Check out early Primus (Sailing the Seas of Cheese).


I've a copy of Tommy the Cat where he busts out The Awakening in the middle... man, the guy is a ninja.

Paradise City!!!! G 'n' R!!!!

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] June 1 2008 9:39 AM EDT

QBOddBird June 1 2008 9:59 AM EDT

Backstreet Boys: Darlin'


Xiaz on Hiatus June 1 2008 12:14 PM EDT

Falling Away with You, by Muse.

Man, this song just hits me everytime.

Xiaz on Hiatus June 1 2008 12:21 PM EDT

IMO, acoustic demo's are the most raw and moving music you can listen to.

Smashing Pumpkins - "Let me give the world to you", and "Once in a while" :) - The later because I'm trying to figure out how to play it. GOOD STUFF! :D

QBJohnnywas June 1 2008 12:39 PM EDT

Check out Doves' Snowden for a beautiful song.

Colonel Custard June 1 2008 12:40 PM EDT

Check these out:


Daz June 1 2008 1:18 PM EDT

+44 - Make you smile

For a band defined as punk, I think this is a simply amazing song.

TheHatchetman June 1 2008 4:09 PM EDT

One classic and another

Colonel Custard June 1 2008 4:15 PM EDT

Hatch, I already submitted that second one to the contest.

Organ Doughner [Fees Dirt Cheap] June 1 2008 5:32 PM EDT


Drama [Just for fun] June 1 2008 6:47 PM EDT

Umm... I don't know how much entry I can post so I'll do like mostly everyone.

Pink Floyd-Animals-Pigs(three different ones)

QBsutekh137 June 1 2008 7:30 PM EDT

Check out Mates of State. Raw, yet melodic, emotion:

Drop and Anchor
Hoarding it For Home
Fraud in the 80s

and one from Okkervil River (if you are a researcher, it has that much more punch, but not required):

John Allyn Smith Sails

(after writing this, I am leaning towards the OR song...saw it live. OR eclipsed the New Pornographers in energy that night...)

bartjan June 2 2008 3:32 PM EDT

Judging by the title of this thread, I would say this song ;)

Greyfeld June 2 2008 5:14 PM EDT

Are you talking about songs that move me? :P

Thraklight Resonance June 2 2008 8:03 PM EDT

Sufjan Stevens - "Come On! Feel the Illinoise Part II: Carl Sandburg Visits Me In A Dream" or "Casimir Pulaski Day." Both are found on the "Illinois" release.

Jeff Buckley - "Lover, You Should've Come Over" from his "Grace" release.

The Paradise Motel - "Drive" from their "Flight Paths" release (it is a cover of the song by the Cars).

Ugly Casanova - "Cat Faces" from "Sharpen Your Teeth," a Modest Mouse side project.

Ryan Adams - "Dear Chicago" from "Demolition."

Spearmint - "Isn't It Good to Be Alive?" from "A Week Away."

Mark Eitzel - "Western Sky" from "The Ugly American."

Will have a winner soon, this is a fun way of getting some new names in my head:)

Ernest-Scribbler June 3 2008 9:39 PM EDT

After listening to everything i wasn't familiar with Jonnywas wins, I listened to the whole song, I hadn't really heard talk talk before. I can guess that lots of newer bands have been influenced by them. Rick Astley is great to, damn rick rollers!!!. I grew up near where he was born:) Sending the cash to your main char Jonny:)

QBJohnnywas June 4 2008 2:12 AM EDT

Hey!! Nice surprise to wake up to!!!! Thanks!

Talk Talk are one of those 'quiet' influences. There's quite a lot of the so-called 'post rock' bands influenced by them, even if they don't often talk about them. If you liked that check out another band Elbow. Well worth checking out if you haven't.
