What is your favorite instrumental song?

102 posts in this topic

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.

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.

I really enjoy good instrumentals... Far too many to name as my favorite, but here a few:

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.

Great stuff. I like how there are a lot of different types of music. Even some I've heard before, but hadn't remembered. Thanks all; keep them coming. I have a habit of enjoying anything I hear, and hopefully others find something they like here, too.

A couple more, definitely relaxing. After listening again just now, especially to the second one, I'm definitely ready for a nap.

Well that's definitely a provocative band name. Almost scared to listen to it, heh.
