    Off the top of my head, New Order's Elegia, and Porcupine Tree's Navigator and Rainy Taxi come to mind when I think of good instrumental songs from a non-instrumental band. Rather than listing individual songs, I've decided to list some cool instrumental bands and CDs. Keep in mind not all of these are entirely instrumental.

    The American Dollar- The Technicolour Sleep and A Memory Stream
    Eluvium- Copia
    Explosions In The Sky- The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place and All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone
    God Is An Astronaut- The End Of The Beginning, All Is Violent, All Is Bright and Far From Refuge
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor- F#A#∞
    Hammock- Raising Your Voice... Trying To Stop An Echo and Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow
    Helios- Unomia
    I Hear Sirens- I Hear Sirens
    Lanterna- Elm Street
    M83- Digital Shades, Vol. 1 (Also recommended are Before The Dawn Heals Us and Saturdays = Youth; the latter of which is one of the best cds released this year)
    Mogwai- Happy Songs For Happy People
    Tristeza- A Colores
    Ulrich Schnauss- Far Away Trains Passing By
    The Workhouse- The End Of The Pier

    Hope that helped. I might not have listed individual songs, but hopefully people will read this and check out some of these bands.

    I was listening to Nine Inch Nails-The Downward Spiral today, and I must say "A Warm Place" is one of the most depressing songs I've heard.

    Also I'd like to mention Shadows Fall's "Casting Shade," and "Lead Me Home" are really astonishing, and I don't even like that band, but their instrumentals are ace.

    Tool-Lost Keys


    There are a bunch more, but those came to mind first.

    I knew I've missed some!
    • 65daysofstatic - 65 Doesn't Understand You
    • Nine Inch Nails - Leaving Hope
    Yup, they are pretty great. There is another post-rock band with cool name Meanwhile, Back in Communist Russia... - interesting music.
    I have two :) One is last.fm/user/Hexabasic my regular one, and this last.fm/user/Abscurat is my new one. The first one is more informative, though.

    Nine Inch nails - The four of us are dieing.

    Very unlike other things I listen to but it is still a seriously good song.

    The only one that I need to mention right now is Metallica - Orion. That was my favorite instrumental song for so long. It's still awesome. I need to go through my music and listen to some stuff though. Oh I also like both Motherfucker = Redeemer songs by GSYBE.
