I listen to Inner universe from ghost in the shell non stop sometimes when I am in a thinking mood.

Oh yeah that's a good song. It's neat how it's sung in multiple languages. One of my favourite songs is from a video game called Ar Tonelico Qoga which has it's own language called Hymnos that can be spoken and translated fully.

It's sung by a Japanese singer named KOKIA. Her voice and vocal range are just amazing. She had to record her voice over a hundred times for this song and put them in layers to create a choir effect.

This is another one from Ar Tonelico Qoga. This one I find very neat and I consider this genius level writing. It contains 4 songs, one after the other. They are in the order of:

1. Ending of Ar Tonelico Qoga
2. Opening of Ar Tonelico 1
3. Opening of Ar Tonelico 2
4. Opening of Ar Tonelico Qoga

The person who wrote these songs designed them in such a way that they fit together perfectly one after the other to form one long song called "Ec tisia" or "Forgive Everything". This one gave me lots of feels is a good way to put it lol.

This song here is a trance song. One of the best ever. It has no actual lyrics or spoken words but just the raw power of the melodies and sounds used have so much energy that it literally puts me in a state of a trance.

I'll post more of my favorites up in other posts. I don't want it to be one gigantic post of a million words lol.

EDIT::: Replaced the trance song link with a better quality version of the song.

Okay no problem. I will have a listen to them, I book marked the last song you linked to. I would love to mix my own music. I was looking into a program called "music creator 6 touch" its not to expensive.

I'd like to link several songs that I feel are healthy for you, and just sound amazing with the right headphones, or speakers. The bass is deep and soft, while the genre itself will explain why it sounds so amazing. It's a mix of several styles in just a single song, the light D&B that can be found with most of their songs, yet the second half is heavy just as the original genre had originated from. In total, I'd say to listen to these few songs while you're doing work, browsing the forum, searching for ideas, or just enjoying the beauty of life.

Pendulum - The Island (Part one and Two) (Length: Est. 9 Minutes)
Genre: Drum & Bass (Chaotic Second Half)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkcHMB9bRZc

For a better example of the first half, here is another song I thoroughly enjoy from Pendulum, one of my favorite of all time.

Pendulum - Hold Your Colour (European/Australian)
Genre: Drum & Bass (Clean and Smooth)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlvZdsO5sIg

For a better example of the second half, here is one I enjoy as well.

Pendulum - Blood Sugar
Genre: Drum & Bass (Chaotic)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26Rl096vMf0&src_vid=gkwpXipZUoE&feature=iv&annotation_id=annotation_559977

I believe that people should enjoy every kind of music for what it is: music. Music is culture, and culture is people. If you would like to know some more artists, let me know. If you'd like to know some more songs, tell me. I listen to everything I can get my hands on. Why wouldn't I, right?

Thank you for your time :3

The only instrument I can play anything on is the trumpet. The musical genre I prefer is orchestra or symphonic music or a mix of both. I guess going through middle and high school band created this side of me.

Music is a good way to express how you feel at times or what your personality is like.
