After making fun of Coldplay my entire life I actually sat down and listened to their debut for some reason and it actually wrecked me. I feel bad for not giving it a chance before, it's perfect sad music.

I've been avoiding listening to this after I listened to Phil on Marc Maron's podcast talking about his wife's passing. I knew it was going to be so raw and invasive in a way and it freaked me out. Might give it a try now though, thanks anon.

For You Only - Trading Yesterday

Wind Beneath My Wings
Yes I know, it's old and overplayed, but there's a reason as to why this really gets me.

My granddad's favourite song, who said it was about my nan. It was played at his funeral and as the second dance at my auntie/his daughter's wedding, with my nan after the bride & groom did the first dance.
When I was younger I didn't really understand what he meant, but now I think I do - she provided him with the family he had always wanted, looked after the kids a lot, while working also - so my granddad was able to devote a lot of his time to trade union work, socialising with friends, etc. At his funeral they had to leave the church doors open at the back because not everyone could fit inside as he'd had so many friends. Nan never complained or resented him, instead quietly supporting him for the rest of his life. So I think he meant it in that sense - that she'd enabled him to do that.
So yeah I cry my eyes out when I hear this song.

huge Michael Nyman fan. there’s something about minimal, repetitive music that puts my head in a great place. but it also makes me really weepy. Arvo Part, Philip Glass, and Max Richter all work for me in the same way.

No. 63609

Arvo Part.

No. 63610

I didn't know there was someone else that appreciated modern neoclassical music.
I could listen to Michael Nyman all day, I first got introduced to his music through the movie Piano:
This is my favorite of his tracks:

I also like Arvo Part and Philip Glass, I listen to them regardless of my mood but when I'm depressed listening to their works just makes my nihilism and existential crisis worse.

Arvo Pärt's Fratres with piano and violin is just something out of this world.

What else do you listen to usually? I don't encounter many people irl or online that are into same artists.

Also, another composition what makes me tear a bit is Maxence Cyrin's piano version of No Cars Go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAAdQ7TY96o

No. 63611

Same! I saw The Piano, loved it and loved the music. I’m also a big Erik Satie fan, which probably completes the circle. I have almost complete collections of all these composers, I’m a dork.

There used to be this amazing video on YouTube of Arvo Part attempting to explain his feelings about…argh let me go find it. He’s talking about composition to a group of music students and every time I watch I’m in awe. He’s trying to explain something in words that he can really only truly express through music.

Do you know Nyman’s score for the movie Ravenous? He did it with Damon Albarn of Blur and it’s super quirky and great.

Have you seen any of these pieces performed live? I’ve been lucky enough to see the Estonian Chamber Choir doing De Profundis, and also MGV. I sobbed both times, really beautiful and powerful stuff.

As for other music I like sort of old stuff. Radiohead, Kate Bush, some Peter Gabriel, I used to love Elbow but the last few records didn’t do much for me. Asleep in the back is still my favorite.

Nice to meet a fellow modern neoclassicist lover!

No. 63612

A couple more quick songs for you, anon!

Mazzy Star is always a favorite

Agnes Obel is very hit or miss for me, but this song is a great one.

Not to get too far ot, but for music in general, I love Aphex Twin a ton and there’s someone who just popped up on my radar called Sylvain Chauveau who’s pretty good. I like Austra and Aimee Mann too. Antonio Carlos Jobim makes me weepy sometimes, depending on the song.

I have no idea why the A’s are the ones coming to mind right now!

This last song I can’t help loving, I heard it on Air’s Late Night Tales and then went on a bender for this guy’s music. Hope you enjoy some of these.

No. 63613

> I saw The Piano, loved it and loved the music. I’m also a big Erik Satie fan, which probably completes the circle. I have almost complete collections of all these composers, I’m a dork.

Same. I love Erik Satie! Do you play an instrument as well? I play piano and when I reached a decent level I thought that playing Satie was going to be easy peasy. I was soon proved wrong. While technically it seems easy to play Satie, it really takes time and practice to play some of his works like Gnossienne properly, to convey that mood that you often associate with his music, like melancholy. It made me appreciate his works even more as I think his works and a lot of other music belong to minimalism genre, in general, is not taken seriously due to its minimalistic structure and repetitiveness. To add, I'm surprised and saddened at the same time how little popularity Michael Nyman enjoys when you compare him to Ludovico Einaudi and Yann Tiersen who are both overrated and terrible "composers" imo.

> There used to be this amazing video on YouTube of Arvo Part attempting to explain his feelings about

I've only found this interview with Bjork. I really liked the relaxed conversation between the two without any pretentiousness. Arvo seems so down to earth.

If you do find the video you mentioned, please do let me know.

> Do you know Nyman’s score for the movie Ravenous?

No! I thought I got through all of his works and now I discover this. I've been through some part of the Ravenous score and I love it.

> Have you seen any of these pieces performed live?

Sadly no. I wish I had the chance.

> I’ve been lucky enough to see the Estonian Chamber Choir doing De Profundis, and also MGV.

I'm jelly. Can't imagine what kind of magical experience that is, to hear it live.

> As for other music I like sort of old stuff. Radiohead, Kate Bush, some Peter Gabriel, I used to love Elbow but the last few records didn’t do much for me. Asleep in the back is still my favorite.

Awesome eclectic taste you got there. I like old stuff too and I'm a fan of Peter Gabriel, his Steam was my morning jam for a long time.

> Nice to meet a fellow modern neoclassicist lover!

Nice to meet you too!

Thanks a lot! I'm going to go through these now. Btw I also love Aphex Twin, I like ambient and electronic as well, for example, Floex/Dvorak, Vangelis, Aphex Twin, Royksopp, Chris Clark, Depeche Mode. There are too many great artists to name.

No. 63614


I love modern classical stuff! I'm partial especially to Max Richter, Nils Frahm and also a lot of Icelandic stuff - Olafur Arnalds is my favourite musician right now. He did the soundtrack for Broadchurch and has loads of wonderful music available. and I also love the late Johann Johannson - his scores for Prisoners and Arrival are lovely, and IBM 1401 is especially gorgeous. I can't believe he's died at only 48.
Also I like Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, as well as great music (I like the soundtrack Angels of the Universe) he is like a chief pagan druid. Iceland is an awesome place.

also Aphex Twin is a great call. I love him too.

No. 63615

Good morning! Sorry it took me so long to see this but yesterday was a long day. It made me so happy to wake up and see this!

It looks like we might have pretty crazily similar tastes in music, at least when it comes to purely instrumental—I also love Dario Marianelli’s score for Jane Eyre and think it’s beautifully sad and romantic.

I envy you your ability to play an instrument. I would love to have the discipline but I can only enjoy others’ talent. I’ve sung in choirs all my life but truthfully I’m an amateur. I’d give anything if I could be a part of a group that performed any of Arvo Part’s work, but I’m know I’m nowhere near talented enough. I often envy people who can play because it seems to be one of the purest forms of expression. Music has such command over emotions, sometimes when I’m depressed it’s the only thing that makes me feel. It’s really an amazing thing and I’m fascinated when I watch musicians getting caught up in the emotions of a piece.

Erik Satie is so deceptively simple! I think it would be terrifically hard to play and have it sound ‘right’.

I forgot to mention John Cage whose compositions for Paris and In a Landscape are gorgeous pieces of music, and also Meredith Monk who can be crazy fun to sing. Gotham Lullaby and Memory Song are some of my favorites. This is Anthony de Mare singing Memory Song, it’s not for everyone but I love to sing along, and also a bit sad in it’s strange way. https://youtu.be/n-KkkEZ_RyE

Ambient and electronica are also favorites of mine. Royksopp are terrific. You mentioned Bjork, who I like very much. Depeche Mode was my first concert!

I looked and looked for the Arvo Part talk with the students, but the only bit of it I could find is the short version that I posted at the header of >>63611, I believe it’s an entire video’s worth of him discussing his music.

I’m so glad you enjoyed the score for Ravenous! https://youtu.be/4385qsNWHNo is probably my favorite piece. The movie’s is actually strange and fun, but I probably wouldn’t have left it on if I hadn’t heard those clarinets and oboes! His style is so unique and distinct.

I was just introduced to both Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds and I like them both! I think I might favor Nils Frahm a tiny bit more, but they’re both very good at writing these sometimes melancholy, always relaxing pieces.

I hope we can all share some more songs that we enjoy, this has been the nicest time I’ve spent here at lc.

This song is reminding me of a horribly sad documentary about terminal patients in Oregon who are allowed to end their own lives using prescription drugs given them by their doctor.

Most of the movie followed this lady who had liver cancer and she was doing really well for most of the film but then began to get really sick, you could see it taking its toll on her. She held out as long as she could and then her whole family came to the house the day she was taking the pills. She had made sure her sons knew how to cook the recipes they loved, all that. At the very end, the cameras aren’t in the room with her, to give the family privacy, but they taped sound and her family is singing songs to her. She’s really quiet and then you hear her voice, it’s so light and happy and surprised, and she says ‘Oh, but this is easy!’ That movie devastated me.

from within the comical
glass bubble of the gawky
helmet tilted atop
the comical white spacesuit,

as the spaceship hurtles
out toward the stars, the earth
a star behind it, the earnest
dog eyes fixed on black
space like a door
the masters have walked through
and will return from, surely.
Surely they'll come to get me.
Surely they didn't love me
all that time for this.’

this one's been a go-to of mine for well over ten years now. good for when i'm feeling aimless and uncertain and wanting for something (which, given current events, is often)

No. 85797

This song perfectly describes the situation I've been in lately, I left my abusive bf and he immediately rebounded with another girl. I'm scared for her because I know how horribly he treated his previous girlfriends, I know he'll tell her how horrible I was so that she feels bad for him, and I know the cycle will continue. Really cannot believe Ms. Apple completely captured the strange "bond" I have with girls I never met, but that we all have the same abusive bf in common.

samefag because i completely forgot about the saddest song of all time. radiohead is way too good at crushing my soul

>"Street Spirit is our purest song, but I didn’t write it. It wrote itself. We were just its messengers; it's biological catalysts. Its core is a complete mystery to me, and, you know, I wouldn’t ever try to write something that hopeless. All of our saddest songs have somewhere in them at least a glimmer of resolve. Street Spirit has no resolve. It is the dark tunnel without the light at the end. It represents all tragic emotion that is so hurtful that the sound of that melody is its only definition. We all have a way of dealing with that song. It’s called detachment. Especially me; I detach my emotional radar from that song, or I couldn’t play it. I’d crack. I’d break down on stage. That’s why its lyrics are just a bunch of mini-stories or visual images as opposed to a cohesive explanation of its meaning. I used images set to the music that I thought would convey the emotional entirety of the lyric and music working together. That’s what’s meant by ‘all these things you’ll one day swallow whole’. I meant the emotional entirety, because I didn’t have it in me to articulate the emotion. I’d crack… Our fans are braver than I to let that song penetrate them, or maybe they don’t realise what they’re listening to. They don’t realise that Street Spirit is about staring the fucking devil right in the eyes, and knowing, no matter what the hell you do, he’ll get the last laugh. And it’s real, and true. The devil really will get the last laugh in all cases without exception, and if I let myself think about that too long, I’d crack. I can’t believe we have fans that can deal emotionally with that song. That’s why I’m convinced that they don’t know what it’s about. It’s why we play it towards the end of our sets. It drains me, and it shakes me, and hurts like hell every time I play it, looking out at thousands of people cheering and smiling, oblivious to the tragedy of its meaning, like when you’re going to have your dog put down and it’s wagging its tail on the way there. That’s what they all look like, and it breaks my heart. I wish that song hadn’t picked us as its catalysts, and so I don’t claim it. It asks too much. I didn’t write that song."

I miss being sad in 2010.

No. 88934

All their b-sides are underrated too, agree with talk show host or cuttooth. I honestly still like the original true love waits as opposed to the one on amsp but it's still soul shattering I guess. How do you feel about the original identikit?

No. 89221

ooh i love identikit. i wish they had kept that beautiful synth melody that rises midway through in the studio version, the early version in general feels more powerful and like, frenetic/ chaotic? i still love the amsp version though, it's toned down but i could see it on In Rainbows (which is one of my favorites of theirs, biased towards it because it was what got me into radiohead as a preteen when it came out. no skips on that whole record for me). i honestly have a ton of radiohead's discography that i still need to get through so i'm lowkey a fake fan, barely remember king of limbs at all lol.
