Inspirational Music

  1. Dec 10, 2004 #1
    For those who really care about music, and see its extreme strength, please do whatever you can to get an album or two by Enio Moricone (or Ennio Morricone). It is absolutely incredible.

    I am lost for words.

    i'm listening to samples on amazon.com, & it's surprisingly good. usually i only like the old-school stuff (handel, bach, beethoven) but this guy is pretty good for someone from the 20th century. "once upon a time in the west" sounds the best so far

    more inspirational music, if anyone cares:
    music for the royal fireworks - handel (better than star wars!)
    eroica variations - beethoven (only the glenn gould recording though)
    local hero soundtrack - mark knopfler (esp. going home: theme of the local hero)

    A Little Night Music - Mozart
    Four Seasons - Vivaldi
    Overture 1 and 2 - Bach

    Those are some of my favourites.

    I don't know if your restricting this to Classical/Symphony music, but I like just about anything.

    I like the following as well:

    Take Your Best Shot - Dope
    The Power of I and I - Shadows Fall

    For some reason, I also like:

    Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch

    Weird, I know. :)

    I don't know who that Enio person is or not, but I'm sold. I'm going to buy the CD before I go to work.

    Thanks for sharing. Ill be sure to listen to some of your suggestions.

    Enigma is also a great 'band'. Very similar to the soft genre of Enio.

    Enio - Chi Mai is a great song as well.

    Ennio Morricone's soundtrack to The Mission is very good. (The movie's good too.)

    Favorite inspirational music: Te Deum by Arvo Pärt

    I like them as well. Their greatest hits album is great.
