The Strokes - Modern Girls & Old Fashion Men - YouTube

I think the generally understated/quieter crossover with the vocals always really worked well on this song. I think I always preferred The Strokes with headphones on but especially with Reggie baby on board. Maybe I felt more like a prick and therefore empathised more with Julian Casablancas?

Christ, Loveless played through headphones does crazy things to my ears. I'm sure that me playing it relatively loud doesn't help any, but you know.

Interesting suggestions from all! I think everything has a whole 'nother level of depth with headphones, and the contributions thus far definitely reiterated this thought.

Some that seriously made me go with headphones:

Spoiler for Brace yourself for an ungodly amount of vidjos::

Woods of Desolation - Somehow

Beautiful soundscape, really. The kind of thing I can kind of lay back, close my eyes, and get lost in its melancholy.

Muse - Uprising

I become such a huge proponent of Muse when I'm wearing headphones.

Radiohead - Like Spinning Plates

Aside from being the most depressing song imaginable, this is an absolute treat to listen to with headphones.

Blonde Redhead - Falling Man

This one is just great to listen to.

Sarah Brightman - Anytime, Anywhere

Sarah Brightman has the most lovely voice I've ever heard. With headphones, it's enhanced that much more. I desperately hate the semi-poppy, English language chorus in this one, but the verses are absolutely lovely. This song showcases her voice at its absolute prettiest.

Queen - The Prophet's Song

The toy koto is gorgeous in this one, and the vocal interlude is definitely BEST appreciated with headphones. This is on the same album as "Bohemian Rhapsody" and is really the more intricate and adventurous composition of the two. The way this is arranged is near perfection in headphones. Dat guitar, my God.

Phish - You Enjoy Myself

Best enjoyed with a pair of headphones. As an aside, if I could play this on guitar, I'd feel like a goddess.

Jethro Tull - Aqualung

I love listening to this on headphones like crazy, like whoa.

The Beatles - Yesterday

I don't even like this song without headphones. Some might say the weird stereo panning takes away from the song, but I think it actually adds some depth and interest to what could easily be a hellaciously boring ballad.

Themselves - It's Them

The first time I heard this, it was with good headphones, and I was completely awestruck.

Hawkwind - D-Rider

Just fantastic.

Tuxedomoon - Music Number Two (Reprise)

My ears came the first time I heard this one.

Soft Machine - All White

A wondrous experience through headphones. There's a lot to take in.


It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
