    Best/favorite instrumental song... EVER!

    Okay, what is the very best instrumental song in your opinion, ever? What song takes the art of being instrumental and absolutely perfects it?


    Tentatively I'm going with Dntel "Fear Of Corners." (Fear of Corners)

    I might need to add a Mogwai song later!

    Your turn.

    And a very, very special mention to Óðin's Raven Magic Chapter 7. So good they made a second.

  • definatly:

    Mogwai Fears Satan- Mogwai.

    such a fantastic song.

    *and so ends another pointless comment

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Moya

  • Pelican - Drought/Mammoth
    Red Sparowes - Alone and unaware...
    Detwiije - 6 is better than 8
    Mogwai - Superheroes of BMX
    Explosions in the Sky - Greet Death
    Halifax Pier - Halifax bound

    As you can tell, Its hard to choose.

    All the world's in a rush to be beautiful.
  • explosions in the sky- magic hours got me into post-rock, so i'm a little biased towards it, but it's still incredible.

  • My Father My King

    or Have You Passed Through This Night? - how a song should make me feel

    also The Moon Is Down. Eits just seem to make a song about something. Jamie Cullum can fuck off

    Edit: I'm listening toSummer (Priority Version) right now, so I should give that a mention too.

    Btw, what is up with the clock?

    Edit: Edit: and With Portfolio is cool with the sounds moving. I'm listening to YT right now, as you may have guessed

    Edit^3: Maybe we need a 'favourite instrumental album thread', this is too hard!

    Mogwai - 'Superheroes of BMX' is my favourite instrumental.
    it's so epic, has a beautiful atmosphere...actually, it's got everything :p

  • changed my mind again

    Mogwai Fear Satan. The MBV mix is evil!!

    My favorite is-
    A Song for Our Fathers

  • explosions in the sky-first breath after coma
    Ef-final touch/hidden agenda
    mono-karelia(opus 2)

    Air - Alone in Kyoto
    The Album Leaf - The Audio Pool
    To Rococo Rot and I-Sound - For a Moment
    Rachel's - Water From the Same Source
    Simple Minds - Theme for Great Cities (I kid you not - check it out)

    Honorable mention to Mogwai's "My Father, My King," just because it's a 20 minute instrumental based on a theme from Jewish liturgy, but really, it's not nearly as good as the ones above.

    currently for me it's
    New Animals From the Air

  • Oh, great delight in Eluvium. I wouldn't be able to select my actual favorite instrumental song, but I would likely place all of An Accidental Memory in Case of Death at the top of my current favorites. My favorites cycle rotates constantly, adding new people all the time and not usually repeating, but I always end up back at Eluvium. Always.

  • four tet - everything is alright,

    i think that's my favourite instrumental track, although picking 1 song is really difficult.
    this thread is cruel making is choose! :P

  • Explosions in the Sky - Your Hand In Mine

    godspeed you! black emperor - East Hastings (that counts, doesn't it?)

  • Ratatat - Loud Pipes

  • GY!BE - East Hastings
    Boards of Canada - Kid for Today
    Boredoms - Super Going

    Somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse

    i think i can't choose, but one of my fave instrumental song is drudkh's fading-summoning the rain, from the album autumn aurora.

    Boards of Canada - Dayvan Cowboy

    65daysofstatic - Radio Protector

    Pelican - March Into The Sea

    Brian Eno - 1/1

    Explosions in the Sky - Have you passed throught this night?

    (I'm going to throw this one out here, I don't even know if it remotely counts, but there's something about Danger - Keep Away by Slipknot that feels like a completely different genre from all their other songs, it always sounds like a post-rock song)
