    Impossible feat, so I am going to stick with instrumentals for the time being. These 3 are all masterpieces and could loop endlessly for me.

    Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis (Such a beautiful song. I just close my eyes and drift along)

    Blue Train - John Coltrane (Hard to pick my favorite Coltrane, but this one always stands out)

    Orion - Metallica (Hard to pick between this and Call of Ktulu, but I've probably listened to this hundreds of times and wore my cassette of this album out as a kid)

     

    It's a hopeless situation...

    Would it be a waste of my time to compile all these in a spotify playlist? Or are there people who would enjoy that?

    Aaah, I can't believe I forgot about them! Saw them at a state theater about 5 years ago. They're fantastic. Those instrumental rock covers they did are amazing.

    2. Pictures of You - The Cure
    Had a good friend go to the Atlanta show.  Tried to hold his phone up for me to hear it play. (Didn't work, but I appreciated the attempt.) Love that song.

    That's a great idea! :lightbulb: I'd very much enjoy it, though I don't have a Spotify account... :blush:

    Alright, done. :) You should make a Spotify account - you can sign up for free... although I have no idea what restrictions there are for playlists on the free version, so I'm not totally sure you'll be able to access this without a paid account (can someone let me know?). But give it a shot! It's a great playlist (for the most part, haha ;) ). I'll keep adding to it as you folks add to this thread (multiple choices/posts from one person is great). I won't add repeats, but otherwise I'll do my best. Once in a rare while the selection isn't available. In those cases I'll try to find a decent tribute/cover version or something.

    Mine are slightly different today, I'd switch out "Bring the Noise" by Public Enemy and put in "Fitzcarraldo" by the Frames (Glen Hansard's main band over the years)
