TODAY I WANT INSTRUMENTALS!

I tend to write better, and even knit better, when there are no words to a song, not elevator music that had the words taken out for copyright purposes, but songs that don't actually have words.

My Favs are:
Prelude No. 15 (?? I think, Raindrops)
A Lark Ascending
Wipe Out
James Bond Theme
Movie scores are generally good for this too.

So go ahead! Give me words about music with no words!!!

Don't laugh but... I love listening to anime soundtracks. Some of the music is so amazing. The Haibane-Renmei soundtrack in particular. It can also be bizarre AF (as anime does), so that can be fun to listen to at work as well. Hahaha.

Also, the Harry Potter soundtracks are great. Lots of action music as well as slower songs.

Hmm... and to totally go off the deep end, Steve Vai.

So, I think I hit all the weird stuff and will see myself out of this post now. :D

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl -- The entire CD

Also Mad-Russian's Christmas is probably my favorite year-round holiday music.

Unknown Territory by Dick Dale - also the entire CD. Anything by Dick Dale, really....

OH! Grissom's Overture from the CSI soundtrack. GUH.

I like:

Rise by Herb Alpert
Classical Gas by Mason Williams (and Vanessa Mae has a great version too - actually, she's excellent all up for instrumental)
The Hustle by Van McCoy (there are a couple of words, but not enough to represent actual lyrics, since all they say is basically 'do the hustle' a time or two)
Tequila by the Champs (ditto, re one word 'tequila')
Peaches & Diesel by Eric Clapton
Samba Pa Ti by Santana
Miami Vice theme by Jann Hammer
Music Box Dancer by Frank Mills
Gonna Fly Now (Theme to Rocky) by Bill Conti & his Orchestra
A Fifth of Beethoven by Walter Murphy
Dueling Banjos by Eric Weissberg & Steve Mandell
Albatross by Fleetwood Mac
Green Onions by Booker T and the MGs
Journey of the Sorcerer (theme to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) by the Eagles
ANY Alan Parsons Project instrumentals, but particularly Pipeline ♥
and anything by Clannad or Enya

I think it's a different song, but that's okay - surf songs are cool too!

I don't know Miserlou, but I'm sure it's fab as well! ;-)

It makes me think of oil pipelines and travelling vehicles. This is a fan-made video with the song:

I feel like I should say 'yes, Mum' and slink off to do just that, but then I'm all 'Words are HARD' right now. But I will TRY!!!!
