Songs that have awesome music in them

Was listening to the radio earlier, and Joe Jackson's "Breaking Us In Two" came on. And one reason I love that song so much is because it has such neat music in it-love the sort of jazzy feel to it. The same applies to Dave Matthews' Band's "Crush" (which was also played-the 8 minute version, which was really great to hear), and to Double's "The Captain Of Her Heart".

So what songs would you guys say have great music in them?

I love that song. I haven't heard that one in a long long time.

the songs i listen to i listen to because i think the music is good. i don't give a shit about the lyrics, probably about 90% of the time.

i don't think i really understand what you mean. but it's 2:30am and i've consumed far too much sugar to really comprehend anything. plus i think that pistols/madonna thing after several hours straight of hardcore just did my brain in....

I was going to give this exact same answer, without the cursing.

It's a cool song . You should give it another listen . And I'll agree with "Layla", definitely-that opening guitar is a classic. Also, the Style Council's "Speak Like A Child"-the music in that song makes it so much fun to listen to.

Yeah, IWasBored, basically, I'm just asking people to list songs in which they find the music really cool-forget the lyrics, just focus on the music that the band/artist plays in the song-does it have a cool piano bit in it that makes it cool, or a great guitar riff, or whatever . I can understand being a bit confused after your description of your present situation...sounds like you've had quite a night .

LOL. Hey, I've not really moved from this spot much tonight, either, so if that makes me a nerd as well, then so be it .

Speaking of drinks, I should go get me a Pepsi-I'm really craving one right now.

I went through a period recently where I just could not stop listening to this song. It really is awesome-my favorite part is the way the music builds up during the whole "There’s a room where the light won’t find you/Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down/When they do I’ll be right behind you". Just the way it all comes together like that is awesome.

Other good mentions .

A couple more: Van Morrison's "Moondance", and one that I seriously cannot believe I forgot to mention earlier, the Moody Blues' "Nights In White Satin". I still stand by my belief that "Nights In White Satin" is quite possibly the most musically gorgeous song I've ever heard.

Also, another one that just came to mind: Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade Of Pale".

Aerosmith - Dream On

swing, by japan. love that song! the music is so amazing. it's got all these layers to it. i honestly don't know how they managed to pull it off live as it sounds like there's about 20 different instrument parts to it.
