Here's how this works. Each side will post a song that he or she likes and explain why it's good. The voters shall decide which position provided the best music. Try not to provide a song over five minutes. Other than that, there's no guidelines.

First round is for acceptance only.

I present my first song: "Great Train Robbery" by Black Uhuru. (https://www.youtube.com...)

I had chosen this one because it depicts a man's life in New York City. He's involved in a robbery scheme, and is concerned of being caught, which would ruin his legacy in the city. His struggle and misfortune make the lyrics captivating. The music itself is haunting and memorable.

My next song is called "Binary Sunset." You may recognize it from the amazing Star Wars saga. It's emotional, haunting, and epic. It is the embracing of the movie's themes and values. https://www.youtube.com...

"Darkness. Explosions in this darkness. Harmonies suddenly broken off. Harsh sounds. Depressurized soundings. The music will give the impression of a distant cataclysm and will fill the room, falling as from vertiginous heights. Chords will originate in the sky and then deteriorate, going from one extreme to the other. Sounds will fall as if from very high, then suddenly stop and spread out in bursts, forming vaults and parasols. Tiers of sounds"

My next song is "Nautilus" by Bob James. It's a calming and hypnotizing jazz-like piece.

This next song is a very meloncholy peice, voiced by a prodigal spanish singer, this chior peice has the feels of something almost godly. I present Green Bird, by Gabriel Robin. Enjoy...

For my final selection I present Stuck in the Middle with You by Stealers Wheel. Its lyrics may seem obscure, but they reference social anxiety and attack the class system. https://www.youtube.com...

Pink Floyd-Speak To Me/Breathe/On The Run/Time/(Breathe Reprise)


https://www.youtube.com...



Breathe, breathe in the air. Don't be afraid to care. Leave, but don't leave me. Look around and choose your own ground. Long you live and high you fly, and smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry. And all you touch and all you see, is all your life will ever be. Run, rabbit run. Dig that hole, forget the sun, And when at last the work is done, don't sit down it's time to dig another one. For long you live and high you fly, but only if you ride the tide, And balanced on the biggest wave, you race towards an early grave.
--------------------------------
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain. You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun. So you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking, Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older, Shorter of breath and one day closer to death. Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time. Plans that either come to naught, or half a page of scribbled lines. Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way. The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say.
--------------------------------
(reprise) Home, home again. I like to be here when I can. When I come home cold and tired, It's good to warm my bones beside the fire. Far away across the field, the tolling of the iron bell, Calls the faithful to their knees, To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

Once again my Nautilus link was removed. Whoever is doing it should warn me at least before doing it.
