I was going through my music and I thought it would be nice to gather songs that have been (and still are) very important for me : D I also thought it would be cool to share them! Music tells a lot about someone, so here's my collection (: feel free to share some songs as well!
It's gonna be long! D: Let's get started
They're in the order they came to my head, but I'll put some 'insignia' to them
: VERY important for me
always changes my mood
: brings memories back
there's something on it that makes me love it
Nightwish - Nemo [link]This song was THE ONE that first introduced me to Nightwish, I was 10 years old and it blown me along Phantom of the Opera, but I didn't listen to Nightwish as it until some years later
Mägo de Oz - Los renglones torcidos de Dios [link] (yeah weird album cover LOL, I think there are no translation for the lyrics /: ) Okay where do I start...Mägo de Oz was the band that brought me into the world of rock and metal, and also the band that made me love music, I first listened to it when I was like 8 maybe and this was one of those songs, I instantly loved it and I still do <3
Mägo de Oz - Duerme... [link] (That album is my favourite of them :3) What makes me love this song is the lyrics (no translation, sorry!, it's a 'heavy metal lullaby' lol basically about giving strength and love to whom you're singing it, or something like that xD. The guitar and the flute at the beggining are just eargasmic.
Foo Fighters - Come Alive [link]I love those lyrics and how the song becomes more energetic as it goes
Nightwish - The Poet and the Pendulum [link]This song is incredibly strong, I think it speaks for itself. I always listen it when I feel really down, it's like a therapy for letting go out all the blue
Nightwish - Ghost Love Score [link] I love this song so much that I don't know how to explain it D:
Mägo de Oz - Molinos de Viento [link](I had to put the live version because it's way much better than the recorded, and also because I listened the recorded much later) -The non-live album where this song first was speaks about the story of Don Quijote de la Mancha- These lyrics speak about being yourself in life and daring to live, enjoying small things and realizing your dreams (:
Nickelback - Savin' Me [link] I remember how I felt in year 2008 when I listen it
Noriyuki Asakura - Hiten Mitsurugi Ryuu - Amakakeru Ryu No Hirameki [link]I can't describe how I feel with this one...
Rurouni Kenshin - Kanashimi Ni Tamesaretemo [link]I remember when I was like 6 years old, I played cards on the computer with this song as a 'soundtrack', when I listen it I always 'see' the green of the game
Mägo de Oz - Alma [link]
(Alma=soul)(Yeah this band has weird album covers xD) This song is about the freedom of the soul after passing away, kinda xD. It's incredibly special for me because I listened it when my mom passed away almost 8 years ago.
Noriyuki Asakura - Starless [link] D:
Noriyuki Asakura - Departure [link] DDDDDDDD:
Koji Kondo - Temple of Time [link] 2008 again. I remember rainy weather, dark living room and that I was on a crush with Lord of the Rings
Hans Zimmer - Earth [link]I listen to this before sleeping. Magnificent.
Vangelis - Roxanne's Veil [link]I go to another universe with this song
Lacuna Coil - Entwined [link]Cristina's voice is just beau-ti-ful
Turisas - Take the Day! [link]If I had to pick a favourite song from Turisas it would be this one, I love the lyrics I transform into a warrior with this song lol, and the historical background of the entire album is amazing
Mägo de Oz - El Cantar de la Luna Oscura [link]When I was 9 I used to sing this song 'at full lungs' almost all day LOL
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata (First movement) [link]I also listen to this before bed. The atmosphere is kinda depressing, but I see something really beautiful in this piece. The other movements are not that special for me, this is the one.
Two steps from Hell - False King [link]
Kang Ding [link]This was the first song I learned on the keyboard, a Casio CTK - 495 (my first one too), I actually listened to it on the keyboard, but this version is beautiful as well (:
Apocalyptica - Somewhere Around Nothing [link]Hell yeah. Back to 2003 and the card game on the computer again. This was the song that introduced me to Apocalyptica
Apocalyptica - Quutamo [link]Beautifully epic
HIM - Gone With the Sin [link]I don't know why I love this one...but it's hypnotic
Mägo de Oz - El Turno de la Rosa [link]
(I don't find the version without the lyrics D: )I think it's a beautiful instrumental song
Turisas - Land of Hope and Glory [link]I turned into a warrior again. The choirs at the beggining and end are just epic, and the last minute is just eargasmic. The concept of the song is great as well.
Emancipator - Maps [link]Back to November 2009. I listened to this song a lot when I was on chemotherapy.
Lacuna Coil - My Spirit [link]This song was just another one until I saw them live, they told us to think about someone who's not with us anymore and to dedicate them the song and well, I just came undone...
Mägo de Oz - Hasta que el Cuerpo Aguante [link]
(Title trans: Until the Body Stands)This song is about the love for music 'until the body stands'. I think Mägo de Oz became one of the biggest (if not the biggest) bands of rock in spanish because of that, their songs were full of passion and the members of the band are very talented, and listen to that voice at the end of the live version! José Andrëa (the main vocalist) is just amazing Too band now it's not what it was, but I'm glad I could see them live when José was still on the band.
Thanks for reading! I hope you liked the journal and/or found a song that you like! (:
So yeah, that was it. Much longer than I thought it would be lol and I still feel I'm missing something D: Now I shall go back and finish my works for the school D:
