Any of you have music that just *NEVER* gets old?

Mine: Enigma's first album, MCMXC A.D.

Man, there's something about this album...

I've owned it since the year it was released (1990), and have listened to it COUNTLESS times...

And yet it NEVER GETS OLD!!!

I love it tonight just as much as I loved it the very first time I listened to it.

Not very much music sticks out this well for me. Especially not ENTIRE ALBUMS.

Single pieces, yes.

Bach's Cello Suite #1 ( http://www.wimmercello.com/bachs1ms.html ) also works this way for me. It NEVER gets old! They're using a chunk of it on some dog food commercial now, and EVERY TIME that commercial comes on, my ears perk up and I have to stop what I'm doing and listen to that damn commercial. (I like to listen to it at full volume, too)

The Flower Duet from the opera Lakme is another one that never gets old.

And Imee Ooi's wonderful rendition of the Metta Sutta...

And Karl Jenkins' "Palladio Allegretto", better known as the DeBeers Diamond Song...

And Karl Jenkins' "Rain Dance", oh my...

The second disc of the Xenosaga soundtrack. I never get tired of that one and it's always a relief when everything else does get old.

Never gets old?

The Beatles' Revolver, White Album and a whole lotta other stuff.
Queen, just about anything, most notably Innuendo, A Kind Of Magic, The Works.
Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time, Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

Tons of stuff from the old great ones - Chuck Berry, The Platters, Louis Armstrong...

And of course Mozart, Bach and Beethoven.


I almost forgot my personal favorite: The Final Countdown by Europe.
I must have heard it at least a thousand times, and I still can't get enough.

I'm with Mravac on Queen and Bach.

Wow. I so need to reread Good Omens. :)

Five albums that will never grow old: the Beatles' Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's, the Eagles' Hotel California, Jim Croce's I Got a Name, and The Wind by Warren Zevon.

If I was told to chose just one song, and would never be allowed to hear anything else for the rest of my life (and killing myself wasn't an option), I think I would have to choose the album cut of "Let it Be."

I don't know for sure (have to think about it a bit more), but I think I'm leaning more towards The Mamas & the Papas' "California dreamin'"...

Nah. Wall's good for radio, but gets old reeeeal fast as an album ('specially if you've seen the movie a few times).

Animals, Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, on the other hand, are perpetually listenable, as is the Yes album Close to the Edge.

Despite repeaded I've never gotten tired of Boston's "Peace of Mind."

Sorry, that last one was me, before I figured out that you'll post as a guest if your login times out.

That last line should read *despite repeated relistening*.

I'll have to add Jeff Wayne's War Of The Worlds to the heap, as I just can't get enough of it. :)

Tchaikovsky's 1812 is a classic

the Shaft soundtrack also has a long life

For me.......

Pretty much anything by:

The Real McKenzies
Gogol Bordello
Great Big Sea
Iron Maiden

I'd say that's about it for music that never gets old and always packs a good old punch.
