Wow, I thought I'd give the thread a break for a while so I didn't come to be seen as "that asshole who doesn't like anybody else's music", maybe give some other people a chance to jump in. But that apparently didn't pan out, and if the alternative is the thread just dying...
Well, then, let's take it highbrow. If ya'll don't know Bach's Cello Suite No.1 then you're missing out on one of the best pieces of music ever written for a single instrument (here it is
) but I'd like to suggest a more modern take. Here's The Piano Guys doing an 8-voice layering
of that Cello Sonata.
Remember that one from back when it was released. And feels wrong to rate something like that. But... 8/10, instrumental only after all.
Sort of along those lines then... Rather random pick
Not exactly up my alley (I don't usually care for operatic or theatrical [in the literal sense] vocals in rock, and rock band + orchestra can rarely escape seeming a bit self-indulgent to me), plus the fact that it's always hard to fairly evaluate a song sung in a language one doesn't speak (and I don't find merely having a translated lyric sheet on hand while listening to be a sufficient substitute). I'll call it 5/10.
something like this
, which I guess counts as my song for consideration this time =) ).
Wow, that is honestly the first song in this thread I haven't been able to listen to all the way through. Bonus point for that. I'll go 4/10 since I can't fairly judge a song I didn't listen to all the way, but man, that's terrible. You like that more than The Drive Home? Huh.
Not a fan of the stoner rock, eh? =D So...since you bailed early, I take it you didn't even make it to the glorious mariachi death throes that the last few minutes of the song devolve into? XD
And yes, I still like that song far more than any ambient club whatever I've ever heard. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway, my submission this time is another "and now for something completely different" departure from the previous songs posted: "City Noise" by Jill Andrews
