For me today it is probably the piano bootleg version of "She's Your Lover Now" by Bob Dylan. Although Artur Schnabel's rendition of Beethoven's Piano sonata No. 30 (Opus 109) will always rank at top. And the opening theme to the movie "To Kill A Mockingbird". Miles Davis' "Funny Valentine" LIVE - ah there's too many to say.

Old and in the way
Jerry Garcia - banjo, vocals

What an awesome group of musicians. One of my favorite blue grass tunes

Standing on the Moon
A beautiful song. Of course the Dead done so many songs that I love, but this one always makes me feel nostalgic with memories of my first love.

Going swedish
Dont watch the youtube video, just listen. The video does nothing to represent the lyrics. Nothing.
In English:
Faced by your enemies
On every hand
Battle is menacing,
Now make your stand
Fearful your question,
Defenceless, open
What shall I fight with?
What is my weapon?
Here is your battle plan,
Here is your shield
Faith in this life of ours,
The common weal
For all our children’s sake,
Save it, defend it,
Pay any price you must,
They shall not end it
Neat stacks of cannon shells,
Row upon row
Death to the life you love,
All that you know
War is contempt for life,
Peace is creation
Death’s march is halted
By determination
We all deserve the world,
Harvest and seed
Hunger and poverty
Are born of greed
Don’t turn your face away
From needs of others
Reach out a helping hand
To all your brothers
Here is our solemn vow,
From land to land
We will protect our world
From tyrants’ hand
Defend the beautiful,
Gentle and innocent
Like any mother would
Care for her infant.
The translation is more poetic than literal. A lot of good stuff gets lost in the translation.
Another version of the song by Danish singer Kim Larsen:

Re: Going swedish
liked the second version better but both are awesome
reminds me of old partisan songs from WW2
Bohor stood up
My home is burned down
My brother is shot
My father is gutted
I am evicted
This is the culture of nazism this centuarry
An age of terror injustice and the singing of led
Hey partizan Hey partizan
Stand up to be seen
Go one Kozjanski battalion
One and one from victory to victory
Only trough nazi bodies
our free step may go
Bohor has slept
Bohor "rattles"
Bohor woke up
Bohor glows
Trough Bohor the cry of freedom was heard
This way from bohor new nations are rising
Bohor woke up bohor rattles bohor glows
Om maby i should poste a less violent one lol
Who are these young lads
That march trough the village
Who are these young lads
whose faces glow so bright
These are young partizans
of unbending spirrit
these are young partizans
fighters of the new world
who are these young girls
they carry guns on their shoulders
who are these young girls
are they not afraid
these are young partizans
they listened to the sound of their harts
these are young partizans
they left fear at home
What is this young army
that sang trough the village
What is this young army
different then times before
This is our true army
this is our mighty strength
this is the partizan army
they anounce the morning singing

Here is a, somewhat cheesy performance art, version of one my favorite songs from The Wall, along with the movie version if I can get it to work right.
Thanks for that version of pigs on the wing, don't think I had heard it before.

Almost forgot bout this band they went too pop for my taste now.
Umm forgot the lyric for those who are not used to listening to these kind of vocal
Lyrics:
I pace, alone
In a place for the dead
Overcome by woe
And here, I've grown
So fond of dread
That I swear it's heaven
Oh sweet Mary,
Dressed in grief
Roll back the stone
With these words scrawled in a severed hand
Tears fall like shards of glass that band
In rivers, like sinners
Swept with me to join the damned
A darkened sky
The day that laughter died
Fell swiftly into night
And stayed within Her sight
Staring at the knife
Oh God, how easy now the sacrifice
My life, to have Her with me
So farewell to distant thunder
Those inept stars I've worshipped under
Fall father, their Father
Lies in wait in flames below
Whilst my love, a blood red flower
Calls to me from verdant bowers
Graveside, I cry
Please save me from this Hell I know
A darkened sky
The day that laughter died
Fell swiftly into night
And stayed within Her sight
Staring at the knife
Oh God, how easy now to sacrifice
My life, to have Her with me
An eye for an eye as espied in the bible
My faith is lost to the burning of idols
One less cross to press upon the survival
Of this lorded agony
And I, (much as I have tried
To bury Her from mind,
Fate's tourniquet was tied, when She died...)
Still sense Her presence so divine
Lithe arms about my throat
Like pining swans entwined
Footfalls at nightfall close to mine
Suicide is a tried and tested formula for release
I snatch Her whisper like the wind through cedars
See Her face in every natural feature
Midst the mist and sleepy hollows of fever...
With glee deceiving me
Suicide is a tried and tested formula for release
I hear Her voice from where the grave defies Her
Siren song to sing along, no finer
Suicide notes, harmonised in a minor
Strike a chord with misery
No light nor reef
No unsinkable of romance keeps me
Safely from the stormy seas
Now drowning, resounding
Death-knells pound my dreams
Unthinkable to dredge through this
Listless and lonely winter frieze
A darken sky
This day hereafter dies
Falls swiftly into night
And stays within my sight
Staring at the knife
Oh God, how ease it was to sacrifice
My life, to have Her with me
No more a victim of a crusade
Where souls are strung from a moral palisade
I slit my wrists and quickly slip away...
I journey now on jewelled sands
Beneath a moon to Summerlands
To grace Her lips with contraband
The blaze once in my veins

That would be true if everything after thornography 2006 (the album you used that song from, was similar to it. In fact one of their heaviest albums was the one right after it (Godspeed on the Devils Thunder 2008). LAst year's 2010 album was pretty good as well (Midian 2000; is still my favorite though). Though Dani did cut his hair.
It seems like they released one weak album and you gave up. You should give them another try, they are still great.

They never were Death Metal. More Black Metal then Melodic or Symphonic Black Metal (the rare non-Scandinavian band).
this is Death Metal:

I dont have the 2 albums you mentioned il download and listen to them maybe i did judge to fast
Loved midian but my favorite album was cruelty and the beast

Sir Elton John
Music from my youth... I think this was originally a "b side" for Benny and the Jets or Daniel maybe? Beautiful song, Elton is one of my favorite piano/keyboard players. He has made a number of songs that move me, this is one of the best.
