I haven't listened to much music lately, so I'll just chuck a few examples from my lastfm top 10 out here...



^ The whole track gives me the chills, but when it falls to near-silence at 4:10, and for the minute and 10 secs after that basically sums up why I love this album so much.



^ The melody from the accordion that takes this tune to its fadeout from around 2:40 just gets me every time. Marvellous little song this.



^ This whole song's probably among the 25-odd best I've ever heard, and when that organ kicks in for the intro makes for another one of my favourite song moments.

Joy Division - 24 hours, the choruses, beautiful and intense.

Definitely. It's the best track on Closer and one of my favourite JD songs. The intensity of the song and the lyrics are incredible, the lyrics really give a good picture of what was going on inside Ian's head. Great basslines from Hooky as well.

The beginning. The first 3 seconds are the best part.

Entire song makes me shiver. (Recorded version is better. :P) First time I heard it, I decided it was the best song I'd ever heard in my life. Its repetitive as hell but I really can't name too many that I think are better.

These are the final minutes of Cult of Lunas Ghost Trail. When I saw them live they played this as a last song and it destroyed me.

Default Moments in Songs that Stand Out

Pretty broad and difficult question to answer, I know. But what certain parts of songs really stand out to you? It can be a 2 minute bridge, a transition, a sick lyrical verse, a guitar solo or riff, whatever. Here are some of mine:

Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line: Roy Orbison's verse. Gives me chills every time. (1:40)


Pixies - The Happening: The backing vocals from the chorus and Black's monotone voice come together perfectly. (3:08)


Arcade Fire - The Well and the Lighthouse: Such an epic ending, which AF are known for. (2:21)


Matthew Good - Near Fantastica: One of my favourite intros to any song. (0:00)


Radiohead - In Limbo: You're almost overwhelemed when everything hits you at the start. (0:08)


Led Zeppelin - Over the Hills and Far Away: Great guitar solo, but more specifically there's something I love about the way it transitions back. (2:32; 3:07)


Nas - Halftime: The second verse is probably the best I've ever heard. (1:18)


Beatles - Happiness is a Warm Gun: I don't like the first half of the song at all, but once it transitions I always find myself singing along every time. (1:35)


Nine Inch Nails - A Warm Place: Beautiful song. (2:21)


Tragically Hip - Bobcaygeon: If you see them live in Toronto for this part it's even better. (2:03-2:27).

I know this is a tough thing to search for, but I have a similar thread going already. And I doubt mine was the first.

Great choice with Over the Hills and Happiness is a Warm Gun by the way :-P

Whoops, I did a quick search of song moments and didn't find anything. Is there any way to merge it?

Quite possibly the greatest song of all time.

Around 5:19, and on(not that the build up to is shabby either, cause it damn well ain't):
