This, oh dear, this:
Very good taste.
But like lots of Stranglers' song, it's very keyboard based and it will be a challenge to find a great guitar arrangement.
From the same record, Death & Night & Blood would more easily be spectacular.
My favorites of hers are 'Defying Gravity' and 2 duets she recorded with Gram Parsons 'Love Hurts' and 'In My Hour Of Darkness'.
I think I'll go with this one from the Emily Page movie "Whip It" soundtrack:
'Your Arms Around Me'
Written by Jens Lekman
Performed by Jens Lekman
Train imagery inspired by the film, Dr. Zhivago.
Played on a banjo.
Gentle on my Mind by John Hartford.
"Seven Spanish Angels" - Willie Nelson with Ray Charles (grew up on Ray's recordings, and kept waiting for the right time to see him play live, and then he passed). Anyway, the song popped into my head today for no apparent reason. Always puts something in my eye.
The Ronan Keating version from Notting Hill is pretty good too.
Another beautiful movie moment song:
Whenever Your on My Mind by Marshall Crenshaw. It makes me think of my late wife, Lee Ann.
I think for me it's a tie Wild Horses by the Sundays,
The other is Poco's Crazy Love. Without a doubt, the acoustic guitar is going to be the more beautiful song.
Piano ? Barry Manilow's Weekend in New England.
Wow some great song here.
I've always liked "Classical Gas" since I first heard it.
Sad songs "Song for Emma" Joe Walsh on piano. Also Vince Gill "Go Rest High on The Mountain"
Dolly Parton "Jolene" actually anything by Dolly
Funny song "Blue Bird of Happiness" Little Jimmy Dickens
"Lighter Shade of Grey" "Smoke on the Water" "Hotel California" "Ode to Joy" "Hot Rod Lincoln" "Wayward Wind"
Another great one to play: Man Of The World.
When it's late and you're tired and you just want to endlessly play something soft...
Two make the list for me.
Bill Evans: Peace Piece ( reminds me of a rainy spring day just after a shower, when the leaves are dripping andthe birds come out to play in the small pools of rain water left behind. )
Miles Davis: It Never Entered My Mind (recalls images of late nights with the lights low with the one you love either snuggling close or slow dancing, just the two of you.)
Lost in Your Eyes- The Searchers
Written by Tom Petty
This tune is hauntingly exquisite & Garson’s piano added to the atmosphere. Bowie a genius & I was totally addicted then & now by his work, especially the earlier albums ❗️RIP David
Then there's this, when the band comes in 2/3 of the way through it gets me every time.
Rhapsondy in Blue
Too many to pick just one.
Chet Atkins 'The Streets of Laredo'
Many of Bach's compositions
"East Coast Love Affair" by Kurt Rosenwinkel
"West Coast Blues" by Wes Montgomery
Most of Bill Evans
"Cheap Sunglasses" by ZZ Top. Seriously, those guitar solos are sublime.
Several come to mind: Beatles "In My Life", Timothy B. Schmidt's original version of "Love Will Keep Us Alive", Alison Krauss- "Baby Now That I've Found You", Vince Gill- "Go Rest High On That Mountain", McCartney/Beatles "Blackbird", Blind Faith "Can't Find My Way Home"., Henley's" The End of the Innocence", Jackson Browne "Before the Deluge", Eagles "Lying Eyes" "Desperado", "Peaceful Easy Feeling", Hollies "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", John Hiatt's "Buffalo River Home", Buddy Holly's "True Love Ways". Probably a lot more that escape my mind right now. No one is best but these are all ones that I think are beautiful and I never tire of.
