Any Songs With Compeling Melodies? - Any Genre/Anything

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for artistry with emotion. It can be anything

Example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eF2gOBC848         (especially when 00:19 hits)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo_ZgADqvyY          (right at 4:00)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjwTajgIb5M

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSjnaQQrfXQ          (I like this mainly for the intstrumental and overall mood it puts me in)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgieMMG8y5k

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKs9rRfLDt8           (I love every song off this album| i never understood why fans and others hated this album)

 

 

Also, on the side, what headphones do you think would be best when listening to these?

First post! This is my kind of topic.

 

Your tunes are awesome and I totally vibe with them. Given that, I think you'd enjoy the music of M83. It's somewhere between shoegaze and electronica, but I'll be darned if the melodies and synth lines aren't the most beautiful and soulful I've heard. Can't go wrong with any of the albums (the soundtracks are great too, but the albums are more satisfying on their own).

 

I'd start with Saturdays = Youth. Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is also great, but it's definitely more pop-y and I have a soft spot for Saturdays.

 

Two of my favorite songs: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7LbgB12RAM (from Saturdays)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX3k_QDnzHE (from Hurry Up)

 

Also, if you like soundtracks, Clint Mansell is a master. Check out the OST for The Fountain. Mindblowingly beautiful.

 

 

As for headphones...I love me my AKGs (Q701s). They match soundtracks, classical, and live music really well. Not necessarily the perfect match for electronica, but I love the airy synth sounds. Grado Sr-80s always treated me well in the past with the electronic stuff.

Thanks for the recommendations! From what you posted in the links it's sounds like you would get into Com Truise, Depeche Mode and (this could be a stretch) Sigur Ros.

I also think you'd be a fan of Silent Hill music.                                     

I was actually looking into the Grado Sr-80 until i heard the 325is recently. Dude...Those things should be illegal

I love all three of those bands! Com Truise is hugely underrated in the chillwave scene. Sigur Ros and Hammock just put out the most beautiful post-rock sounds.

Grados are something special, that's for sure.
