If you could choose from the last few hundred years, what single track or piece of music would you pick that would rock your/my world?

I'm not after a list of top 3, 10 or 100. :-)

OK.

It rocked, not exactly what I was after. But it did grab my attention. :-)

Well, I love quite a bit of classical stuff (the few hundred years old bit) but I think it's really got to be rock or something a bit more contemporary.

I was going to say Temptation by Heaven 17 (I suppose we all have tracks which define parts of our lives, relationships etc) but, I suppose the album that has stayed with me from my teenage years onwards is Back in Black and, if I have to choose a specific track, it probably has to be Shoot to Thrill. I thought I'd go for Back in Black or Hells Bells but, actually, Shoot to Thrill is the one that still gets me really rocking.

Airbourne have a lot to learn....

In reply to The Lemming: well everyone has their favourites but for a question like this it has to be about revolutionary moments that broke the mould - so maybe something like an early Elvis/Jerry Lee Lewis/Little Richard, one from Sex Pistols, or maybe Ramones, and erm maybe one from Grandmaster Flash or NWA or summat

Maybe not but it fits the OP if that's what rocks ripper's world.

That's something really quite special. I love my D&B, can't believe I've never heard this before!

Check out Photek's Form and Function (part 1) and Modus Operandi albums and there's nothing better in the genre. Unfortunately, after that he decided generic techstep would pay the bills easier, but the early stuff can't be argued with.

Not quite sure what you mean by 'rock' your world ... because I'm sure you wouldn't want that in perpetuity. Surely, instead, something awesomely beautiful that touches the soul. Can't quite make up my mind if the greatest such piece that's ever been written (that I've heard) is Beethoven's Cavatina from String Quartet Op.130, or Betrachte, meine Seel from Bach's St John Passion.

Rite of spring, chicago symph, '71 under ozawa.

Or the stooges, cincinnatti, also '71.

Very similar in many ways.

I say, the camera wasn't all that subtle at tilting down towards that lady's crotch. :-)

Relaxing music though.

OK, time for my nomination.

Now this one needs to have the scene set, because you just had to be there to get the spine tingling impact that can never be done justice with Youtube.

Many moons ago I visited Iona and was aimlessly wandering through the cloisters of Iona Abby when I heard Gabriel's Oboe playing. Naturally, as the music was perfect in every way, I thought that it was being piped through speakers. It wasn't until I turned a corner that I witnessed the delight of two people playing this piece on a grand piano and oboe. They were just practising for a service to be held in a day or two.

I've loved this soundtrack from the very moment I heard the opening credits of the film The Mission, but to hear the notes serenely drift along empty cloisters of an island abbey, was in my mind ethereal.

And if you have the time or inclination, here's the whole lot in one go.

This is for me, what it feels like to be human. An unsurpassable performance.

> (In reply to The Lemming) There's too many to make any kind of sensible choice! But this is certainly one of my favourite tracks of the past few years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp5OxqtmQ44

Liked that. Not listened to Jamie xx before, reminded me of Mount Kimbie. And that Photek track is really good too, eh? Unlike most of what I listened to at that time, it doesn't sound shit and dated, good to hear that one again.

In reply to The Lemming: Ok, because I'm still a hippy, even though I embraced pop, punk, hard rock, new wave and everything until disco and even more so the all time crap music trend, rap. If I have to choose one song I'll go for something I bet nobody else on here will go for;
If You're Going To San Francisco, by Scott McKenzie.
Or if not something by Dylan or Paul Simon.

That Photek track had a similar affect on me and the way I listened to other music from then on , Dj Krust's Future Unknown , maintain & True Stories had a massive influence on my musical taste there after .

Good call .
