    Inspirational Music

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Raven, Feb 12, 2008.

    What music do you find for good inspiration or relaxing material. And Im not talking of these new recent bands artists Im talking of the stuff of legends Such as Mike Oldfields Jean Micheal Jarre, Clannad.

    I myself like a great amount of celtic music and find for writing I like to listen to a lot of celtic music it helps ideas form in my mind as I write.

    I totally agree. And while on soundtrack music so does Braveheart. A Brilliant film with a brilliant music score.

    For relaxing, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, Baroc and Chamber Music.

    For getting an unpleasant job done. Rock and Roll from the 60's anything but Elvis.

    For car trips, Gospel, Kids songs, Kingston Trio, Brothers Four.

    For noise when I am here by myself anything silly I can find. splish splash, monster mash,

    favourites. musical soundtracks, and the old christmas carols.

    I never listen to music for relaxing. Just for personal satisfaction.

    Tom Waits. Actually, that's my answer to any question with the word 'music' in the title.

    I've always been partial to The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack.

    Most of the time, I listen to music from 1966 - 1975. It's hard to top that era in my book.

    '80's stuff gets me excited, I guess.

    For writing, I like instrumental stuff that still can go fast- Celtic, the Firefly soundtrack, and (whoo) the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack.

    I honestly find Metallica's music very inspirational and relaxing.

    Not sure Id agree but Im not a big metallica Fan. Don't get me wrong they are a fine band and I do love the albums Load and reload. And I loved the classical Symphony & Metallica Live album.

    Load and Reload were good albums. Still, the Black Album is great and And Justice for All... is quite epic if you ask me. They're a metal band with actually meaningful lyrics. :p

    It's hard to top Master of Puppets or Ride the Lightning when you're a metal band, unless of course your name is Black Sabbath.

    Regarding Metallica the black album indeed was good but a friend I have played that bloody album to death when it was released so as one can imgine Im not so big on them.

    But then there are different styles of rock and metallica is not in y style.

    I actually don't have a type of music that I really hate.
    I can take anything in small doses except for the ones that every other word has to be bleeped.
    I don't swear at all and I hate listening to someone else doing it constantly.
    It seems pointless to make a song with 50% of it curses.

    The soundtrack from the labarynth is great. I love David Bowey
    I like the duet he sang with Bing Crosby one Christmas. Little Drummer Boy.
