What's your favorite song with no lyrics?

I love music, and like to listen to it to calm me down before resting. Bot often songs with lyrics kind of get my mind busy, which I feel doesn't always help in meditation. Any kind of song; I just like finding new songs and music.

I love to make mashups! Click here to hear!
I also love taking pictures! Click here to see!
I love to play drums, too! Whatever you do, don't click here!

Prince - Purple Rain (Piano Version)

I love it in the movie when he decides to play "Purple Rain", Lisa's song.

The most beautiful piano piece i've heard.  :blush:

Not only is this one of my favorite examples of instrumental mastery (12-string guitar), it also has what must be the best song title ever.

The imagery on this video is just a slide show, unfortunately -afaik there is no decent video of him performing it.

Emerson, Lake And Palmer: "Fanfare for the Common Man"

Moonlight Sonata is my favourite for sure, has been since I was little. There are many more though, if you are into post rock, Explosions In The Sky and God is an Astronaut (Forever Lost, A Deafening Distance, Suicide by Star, Dust and Echos)are really good, tons of great instrumental songs. NIN Leaving Hope and A Warm Place are nice, too.
