    I got a Gift Certificate to iTunes from my brother- While I know he meant well, I had mentioned to my family that it would be a wasted gift as I prefer CD's vs digital CD's. Every once in a while, I come across a catchy song but have no desire to buy the whole album, so I get the single via iTunes.

    I did add two songs, but I have 23 left to go. So what I am wondering is what everyone's favorite songs are. Top 5 of all time would rule cause I want to steal some of your songs so I can add them to my iTunes.

    Although I am an all-around metalhead, I do love the Blues, Opera and classical, so don't feel limited.


    Thanks!

    No idea what is on ITunes. I got a gift card as well, and I'm at a loss with what to do with it. I have no need to mess my digital collection with a bunch of 128Kbps AAC encoded DRM garbage. Maybe I can sell it to someone here at work and buy a real CD I don't have.

    About the only thing I can't find on iTunes is Freak Kitchen, but I've been able to find everything from Dimmu to Volbeat and almost everything in between. I've even been able to find local unsigned bands on it.

    Sweet! I'll have to check some of those out and see about downloading them!

    Hmm, a few possibilities for songs:

    Fear Factory, "Resurrection"
    Dimmu Borgir, "The Insight and the Catharsis"
    Superior, "Why?"
    Ocean Machine (or Devin Townsend), "Life" or "Seventh Wave" or "Greetings/Regulator"
    The Cruxshadows, "Sympathy (For Tomorrow)"
    Type O Negative, "Die With Me"
    The Last Dance, "Wanderlust" or "Spirit" (their Dead Can Dance cover)
    Celldweller, "The Last Firstborn" or "Switchback" or, hell, that whole CD
    Opeth, "Bleak" or "The Baying of the Hounds" or "Serenity Painted Death"
    Ozric Tentacles, "Ayurvedic" (live)...or the whole Live Underslunky album
    Blue Oyster Cult, "Magna of Illusion" (or other better-known BOC songs, of course, but I love Imaginos)
    Dead Can Dance, "Rakim" (live) or "Cantara" (studio)
    Children of Bodom, "Hate Me!" or "Everytime I Die"

    I'll stop, as it's 3am. :)

    Metal, David Arkenstone is definitely worth checking out! I already know I love the music from Lord of the Dance, and the other songs in this list sound too cool to pass up! :tickled:

    Good choices, Paul! "Resurrection" is my favorite Fear Factory song and you already know how I feel about Celldweller :)

    Argh! Am I the only one that DID want an iTunes card and didn't get one?! :lol:

    James Newton Howard - What Are You Asking Me? (from The Village film score)

    I don't know if you like film music but even if you don't I still recommend this highly. It's one of my all-time favorite pieces of music.

    Great talent and a nice guy, too. I had the privilege of seeing him perform at a Wyndham Hill 'winter solstice showcase' in Atlanta a few years ago, along with several other WH artists, and it was an amazing show. Seeing Tuck Andress' performance was worth the price of admission alone. What an amazing evening!

    Check out the following from Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite (if you don't already have them):
    Morning Mood
    Aase's Death
    and of course, In the Hall of the Mountain King.
    The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra version is quite good.

    Thanks to Pellaz as I'm really digging the Children of Bodom tune (Every Time I die).
