Never Meant - Well damn. I'm 38, I know nothing of life, love, fucking, working, falling, or music for that matter. But when I hear this, I think I know it all. I feel as high as the sky, but as low as the core of the earth. Maybe I'm just a pussy, that may very well be the case - but when I listen to this song, it's not just one, but every, emotion that comes pouring out of my body. I can relate to the lyrics strongly, which only strengthens the connection I share with this song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OV0LJ0Dnl7A
2Kate Bush
Hounds of Love


Hounds of Love - Before I'd heard Kate Bush, I always used to find female singers to be boring, and to lack the invigoration that often accompanied a male's voice. This album, and particularly this song, completely warped my perception of female vocalists. And fuck every time I hear "I found a fox, caught by dogs," I just think, 'Holy shit.' Honestly, those are the two best words to describe this song. There are a shit-load of people who objectively listen to songs and then mentally dissect them. Well they should sit the fuck back and just appreciate music, and especially appreciate this song. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=uOwyRd9PPBk&feature=fvst
3Agalloch
Pale Folklore


The Misshapen Steed - Beautiful. One of the very few songs that have ever given me goosebumps. The desolated landscape this song depicts seems so desperate and lost, yet so magnificent and glorious. It's one of those songs that, upon listening, you realize how much more there is to the world than just you and your trivial lives. (Then Hallways of Enchanted Ebony comes on and you go back to wallowing in your own pity.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX2tyAxi7cI
4Akira Yamaoka
Silent Hill 2


Promise - Over the past few months you'll probably have seen me talking this album up, or featuring it in many of my lists. It's not without reason. Promise is such a track of contrast - it has this kind of emotional sadness and anger combined into one (almost in the same way certain Screamo bands pull it off). It's hard to imagine an instrumental song to be played with as much passion displayed in this song. Maybe it's the seemingly hopeless calling of the guitars, further strengthened by the incredibly eerie guitar tone, or the urgency of the drumming, or fuck it, the whole song. Maybe I'm just fucking retarded. I'm more than likely just ranting, but godammit listen to this fucking song and more importantly, FEEL IT. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qalGezr76o
5Laura Stevenson and the Cans
Sit Resist


Master of Art - Finally, and upbeat song! Intensely emotional, or atmospheric songs are generally the songs that would be featured in my top 10 - not because I necessarily love all things sad, but because these kinds of songs strike closer to home with me... If you get what I'm saying. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that this is my most listened to song of the past 5 or so months since I first got into Laura. I COULD LIE AND SAY TO YOU THAT THIS WOULD SOON BE OVER. Much unlike Kate in Hounds of Love, Laura's voice is cute(sy) - which is not something I usually warm to. But wow, does she pull it off well. She is undoubtedly one of my top 5 favorite singers, and she absolutely tears shit up on Master of Art. Not all of the credit can go to her though, the slightly murky production and the the instrumentation is super (perhaps not technically, but it fucking sounds brilliant anyway). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X45s0ly9Bcg
6Jeremy Soule
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Soundtrack


Ancient Stones - I'm a sucker for songs that take you someplace else - songs that can transport you to another world. This is another one of those spine-tinglers - the first 22 seconds in particular. And Lakes if you fucking say Morrowind sountrack is better than the Skyrim one, one more time I'm going to fucking assassinate you. Perhaps it is, perhaps it isn't but this song is so fucking amazing it wipes its ass with Paranoid Android (just kidding). Jeremy Soule is a true master-mind of the new generation of Video Games. Whenever I listen to this, I feel like I'm in Canada, on top of one of the mountains, staring out into the windy, yet unreal world that is silentpotato's home. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjrmRW3VXf8
7Budgie
Squawk


This song is just brilliant. There's not much to say it about. When I listen to it I feel as though everything is perfect and nothing is wrong in the world. It's one of those songs that are simple, yet amazing. There is a way, think I've found another day, and its hidden deep in my heart. Oh I'm goin' back, find a place where I came from, and I'm headin' here in my heart. I'm just rolling home again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UgB8cZi6Hs
8Touche Amore/Make Do And Mend
Split


Hand Me Downs - A lot of people make a fuss about Hideaways on this album, which is a good song, but I found pales in comparison to the lesser known band on the split, and their opening track - Hand Me Downs. The lyrics seem to touch on the sad life of a man who lives and empty life - with no friends or relationship. The raw emotion and aggression that is put on display here is pivotal to the songs success. You can literally touch the emptiness (which is a good thing) ebbing from the vocalists voice, especially during the invigorating chorus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Alu-UaB2d1U
9Pianos Become the Teeth
Old Pride


Cripple's Can't Shiver - Goosebumps creator #3/3. This intensely emotional song focuses on one of the band members father, and how he, and his family, deal with his fathers Multiple Sclerosis. The lyrics are heart-wrenching, and the execution is near perfect. This song is so soul-crushing it's fucked up. I strongly advise against listening to this before going to sleep, unless you the thought of mortality calms you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj0P60fn9X4
10Trophy Scars
Darkness, Oh Hell


Sad Stanley - a 7 minute epic, outlining Trophy Scar's ability to stir emotions even after predominantly abandoning their post-hardcore outfit. The song is extremely depressing, in a strange way. Much has been made of the singers unorthodox (lol) voice, yet it really shines through on this song, especially during the chorus. Don't? you recognize what you put in your mouth, it's the same fucked up shit every day. Spit it all out, take a look in the mirror, the darkness, it? won't fade. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7H9V6o8UCg

13Kate Bush
The Kick Inside


James and the Cold Gun - Back when Kate was a cutie pie. She could still rock the fuck out back then too. Remember Genie from the casino? She's still a-waiting in that big brass bed. The boys from your gang are knocking whisky back, 'Til they get out of hand and wish they were dead. They're only lonely for the life that they led With their old friend. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGWiiTzVqd4
