There is a cinematic quality about Sonic Youth's music that is pretty obvious in this masterpiece. The simple, three-note guitar riff that comes in through that wall of noise at 5:36 sends many beautiful visual images in my head.

Sonic Youth - "Trilogy: A) The Wonder, B) Hyperstation, Z) Eliminator Jr." - YouTube

The second half of this song is simply my favourite studio jam by anybody. Not a note is wasted. For a particular moment, I choose that acoustic slide guitar and the subsequent triumphal return of the rhythm section for a stunning conclusion (from 6:30 onwards):

The Stone Roses - I am the Resurrection (audio only) - YouTube

The whole climax of this song is absolutely terrifying and breathtaking, but when Ed O'Brien comes in with that simple guitar riff, backed by Jonny Greenwood's vicious Penderecki-influenced orchestral arrangement (one which will come more into focus on his subsequent soundtrack work), that moment makes the song for me (3:33):

Climbing up the Walls is easily my favorite on OK Computer. The scream that comes after the part you mentioned is great as well.

Produced by Thom Yorke shrieking into an acoustic guitar. My favourite Radiohead song by far and away.

I didn't know that.

Damn I could post many songs here. The build-up to and the guitar riff itself that start at around the 03:35.

The other really big moment for me is the final verse and the start of the solo, 5:33-6:25.

Gardener's acoustic guitar that comes in at 4:32 gets to me the most, along with the intro.

Yes. Those weird electronic sounds in the background during the intro are beautiful.

Haha, I was waiting for you to chime in on that one.

I guess so, yeah. Definitely my favorite U2 bit. I just tried to keep it short and sweet, so I took the part that literally gives me the chills.

Such a meaningless song but it's so meaningful to me.

Here's one that I like a lot, it's a Replacements with a little guitar flourish (again, let's remember, I have no musical vocabulary) that I adore. It occurs at 2:11 or 2:12 and it's just 2 seconds long or so.....

The Replacements - Alex Chilton - Original Music Video - YouTube

There you have it.

Nice thread.

I believe the correct term is "guitar fill".

And funnily enough, there are credits for it on Pleased To Meet Me Itself. Alex Chilton actually does fills on Can't Hardly Wait.

There's a nice little one at 0:56, and another, more subtle one at 1:49.

Radiohead - How to Disappear Completely

4:35 to the end. That haunting falsetto and the way it rises and dives beneath the strings makes for one of the most beautiful moments in music. It's this end part that makes this my favorite Radiohead song.



St. Vincent - Cruel

1:56 to 2:29. I love how this part builds and builds but then the vocals crescendo before the background synths. Those dual peaks are so good, they give me goosebumps.

St. Vincent - 'Cruel' - YouTube

1:14 - Sean Moore's fantastic trumpet solo takes centre stage, the rest of the instruments build up again, leading to James Dean Bradfield's 'oooh ooh oohs.' Perfect.

Manic Street Preachers - Kevin Carter - YouTube

2:28 - I don't even know where to begin with this, but from there on in into the chorus is flawless.

Manic Street Preachers - 1985 - YouTube

I'd almost let people get away with that "meaningless" comment if it weren't for those last :30 seconds

But, yeah, I understand the brevity, I just meant that the part you left out is the part that hits me the hardest.
