Default Epic Song Moments

I searched for a similar thread but it was tough and my search proved unfruitful.

I thought it would be cool to share our favorite "song moments", so to speak. You know... those parts that send shivers down your spine and elevate the song to an otherwise unattainable god-like status.

What inspired this thread is Led Zeppelin's "All My Love", and particularly, the synthesizer solo that begins around 2:30, which beautifully transitions into a plucked-string acoustic guitar solo, and ends with a brief electric guitar solo.



Another moment for me occurs in the song "You Won't Know" by Brand New. What makes this moment so epic is really the context in which it occurs. The songs begins very slowly, almost mournfully so. Eventually it picks it up into a frenzy of Lacey's screaming overlaying screeching guitars, but around 4:20 it slows back down to mimic the way the song began. At this point, Lacey sings

Quote:
So they say,
They say in heaven
There's no husbands and wives
On the day that I show up
They'll be completely out
Of their forgiveness supplies
And I can't use the telephone
To tell you that I'm dead and gone
So you won't know

You won't know...
and he repeats the last line several times before the song ends. I distinctly remember driving home from school one warm summer day and having a sudden onset of chills thanks to the last leg of this beautiful song.

This song definitely. At around 1:50 or so in this version, but there is a 9 minute version which I prefer.

I frequently consider making one of these thread, so yeah..good! That Zeppelin key solo is pretty decent even if I've never thought too much of the song.

I've really been digging the intro this Ozma song. Just a well arranged, gradually tempo increasing piece. The whole album is just over the top catchy. Nothing overly heavy lyric-wise and certainly doesn't take multiple listens to get into, I guess that's how good power-pop should be.



Not super epic, but cool.

(skip to around 3:20.. always gives me goosebumps)



(the scream at around 1:50)



(start at 2:05.. the break is already goosebump worthy and then that melody comes in)



(at around 2:14 and afterwards.. Zoe's voice is unbelieve)

For some odd reason, this is the first thing that comes to mind.

^obvious post rock fan is obvious. The 2:41-4:22 part and the vocals at the end are just epic. not to mention the build up on here is amazing, and they do the build up thing quite well. I'll shut up about battles now.


The 6:21 point on is just epic and upliftingly beautiful....


THE ENDING IS AMAZING! (protip: The quality is low on this embedded version but I strongly recommend you click on this video to go to the page and play it in 720p.)


The beginning....

I did a similar sort of thread a while back. Not quite the same but along the same lines:

At 0:13 it starts grooving (this gets me every time) and then it goes into a whirlpool. Just as it manages to emerge, at 1:29 everything melts and after a while it comes back again. At 2:13 it's all cool. Great instrumental.
