Top 10 If there`s an heaven, then this is how it sounds

15 May

This top 10 is about the most beautiful music ive listened to, if there is an heaven then this is its music… This is not gonna be to everyones taste but to me these are heaven…chill

10.. PHILIP GLASS – KOYAANISQATSI (OPENING AND ENDING) – 1982 – The film’s soundtrack by Glass was released in 1983, after the release of the film. Even though the amount of music in the film was almost as long as the film itself, the soundtrack release was only 46 minutes long and featured only selections from the film’s pieces. In 1998, Glass rerecorded the album through Nonesuch Records with a length of 73 minutes, 21 seconds. The rerecording of the album featured two additional tracks from the film, as well as extended versions of previous tracks from the original album. The album was released as a Philip Glass album titled Koyaanisqatsi, rather than a soundtrack to the film. The music has become so popular that the Philip Glass Ensemble has toured the world, playing the music for Koyaanisqatsi live in front of the movie screen.

09.. MARK ISHAM – FLAMES (CRASH SOUNDTRACK) – 2005 – I have no idea what that lady is singing about but it sure as hell melts me…

08.. MOBY – MEMORY GOSPEL – 2000 – I love moby`s music but this is just simply awesome, simply beautiful. Used as the funeral scene in the remake of get carter.

07.. THOMAS NEWMAN – THE PAPER BAG SCENE (AMERICAN BEAUTY) – “It was one of those days, when it’s a minute away from snowing, and there’s this electricity in the air. You can almost hear it, right? And this bag was just dancing with me, like a little kid begging me to play with it, for fifteen minutes. That’s the day I realized there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know, but it helps me remember. I need to remember. Sometimes there is so much… beauty… in the world, I feel like I can’t take it, and my heart is just going to cave in.”

06.. LUDOVICO EINAUDI – FUORI DAL MONDO – 1998 – Stunning Italian pianist, used in everything it seems now, from hitman game to this is england film in 2006.

05.. BEAR McCREARY – THE MERCY OF THE LIVING (THE WALKING DEAD SERIES 1) – 2009 – Heard this and my number 03 in the list whilst watching the first episode of the walking dead. Beautiful piece

04.. ZACK HEMSEY – THE WAY – 2011 – Another upcoming composer of some amazing pieces of music, this is by far is his most popular…

03.. JOHN MURPHY – (ADAGIO IN D MINOR) SURFACE OF THE SUN – 2008 – Another amazing piece of music, copied and cloned in various films and tv shows since being released.

02.. BRIAN ENO – AN ENDING (ASCENT) – 1983 – This music was originally recorded in 1983 for a feature length documentary movie called “Apollo” later retitled For All Mankind, directed by Al Reinert. The original version of the film had no narration, and simply featured 35mm footage of the Apollo moon missions collected together roughly chronologically, and set to Eno’s music as it appears on the album. Although the film had some limited theatrical runs at so-called “art house” cinemas in some cities, audience response was lukewarm. The filmmakers still felt the film could do better if it reached a wider audience, and so they re-edited the film, added narration, re-structured the music, and re-titled the film in the process. Various edits of the film were shown to test audiences for further refining. As all this was going on, the film’s release was delayed until 1989. By that time several tracks on the album were omitted from the soundtrack and replaced by other pieces by Eno and other artists.

01.. SIGUR ROS – SVEFN-G-ENGLAR – 1999 – “Svefn-g-englar” was released as a single in 1999, with two studio recordings — “Svefn-g-englar” (Icelandic pun “sleepwalkers” or “Sleep angels”) and “Viðrar vel til loftárása” (“good weather for airstrikes“), both fromÁgætis byrjun — and two songs recorded live at the Icelandic Opera House in Reykjavík — “Nýja lagið” (“new song“), which was never recorded in studio, and “Syndir Guðs” (“God‘s sins“), from the group’s first LPVon. The single was the first UK release for the band, issued on Fat Cat Records in 1999.[2] On its release, it was named “Single of the Week” in NME.[3] In 2001, it was re-issued, in the United States, on PIAS records.[4] The single is available both on compact disc and 12 inch vinyl, with somewhat different selections of tracks. The music video for “Svefn-g-englar” was directed by August Jacobsson.[5] The video features a group of teenagers with downs syndrome.
