Songs that are currently blowing you away.

Just saw this type of thread on atease. It's a cool idea. Just post any specific songs that you are listening to or have been recently that really hit you. Songs that really blow your mind or dig right into your heart.

Currently for me:

"My Body is a Cage" - Arcade Fire

The organ in this thing is massive, and it hits me hard everytime I hear that climax. What a way to end an album.

"At Least That's What You Said" - Wilco

A couple minutes of quiet reflection followed by several more of visceral beautiful guitar orgasm. And the several live versions I've heard take it to new hights still.

"Incident on 57th Street" - Bruce Springsteen

Maybe my favorite song on my favorite album, this song proves Bruce is a master storyteller. In this case, it's a glorious romantic love story...his forte.

Pop Art Toasters - Everyone's Gonna Wonder
Two of New Zealand's greatest musicians, Martin Phillipps (a musical idol of mine) and David Kilgour, covering a song by my own uncle's band? HELL YEAH.

Sculptured - Together With The Seasons
The opening riff is awesome; great dissonant avant-death metal song in general.

Sculptured - Almond Beauty
Not quite as avant garde as Together With The Seasons, but it has a great mix of death and clean vocals.

Agalloch - In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion
Great lengthy atmospheric metal track with some evocative lyrics.

Cynic - How Could I?
The 2004 remaster of this song abso-fucking-lutely SLAYS. The intro is fantastic and the rest is a technical jazzy death metal classic.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Didya know that if you google "Everyone's Gonna Wonder" the first thing that appears is your livejournal?? There you go! What a great story though, Axver!

as for me, Replacements "Left of the Dial" is my song of the week

Knocked Up - Kings of leon

Moonage Daydream - David Bowie

One Tree Hill, Exit, Mothers Of The Dissapeared - U2
I forgot how good the closing trio from the JT are. Vastly underappreciated.
