Hi! So basically this is a battle to see who can post the most beautiful music.

Note: Notice I said the most beautiful music. It doesn't necessarily have to be popular or catchy. Post songs/pieces that genuinely moved you.

The debate will be structured as follows:
R1: Pro outlines debate, Con accepts
R2: Pro and Con each post a link to their first selected composition
R3: Pro and Con each post a link to their second selected composition
R4:Pro and Con each post a link to their third selected composition
R5: Pro and Con each post a link to their final selected composition, along with which of their opponet's choices they liked the most (if any :P) and additional comments if desired

1) No forfeits
2) Compositions must have a duration no longer than 10 minutes
3) The song/piece name and the name of the composer(s) must be provided in each round except this one
4) Pro and Con may not post compositions by the same person or group
5) If a composition is in a language other than English, an approximate translation must be provided
6) Insulting an opponent's selection or otherwise trying to influence voters is not allowed
7) A violation of any of the above rules constitutes a loss

With that said, I thank my opponent in advance and look forward to an inspiring debate! It will be up to the voters to decide who posted more beautiful compositions overall :)


Thank you opponent for initiating this music battle. I hope we have a fun and exciting time. By the way, please guide me and pardon me for my mistakes in structure as i have never done a music battle before. I accept this debate.

Debate Round No. 4


Final piece! Thanks to con for a great debate :)

Composition name: Where Has the Time Gone? (translated from Chinese--DDO doesn't recognize Chinese characters)
Composer: lyrics by Chén Xī; music by Dǒng D!3;ng D!3;ng

Translation can be found here (it loses the rhyme and rhythm in translation, but just so you get the general theme):

I really liked your third selection, and the second one as well. They were both really beautiful pieces. Almost Remember was especially lyrical; in that aspect I found it similar to my first piece, Kiss the Rain. Unfortunatly I won't get to hear Con's last choice before I have to submit this round (bad structure on my part) but I trust that it will be wonderful. Over to you one last time, and I look forward to reading your comments about my own selections. Thanks again to Con.


Thank you Pro for such a pleasant debate. I look forward to debating you again next time!
Final piece:
Composition name: Best Wishes to You
Composer:The one
(OST Gu Family Book) Choi Jin Hyuk - Best Wishes ":

Lyrics are in the song.

In my opinion, I like the first piece of your selection the most. Kiss the rain is a song that one can listen and relax completely. One of the reasons why this song is good is that it has a sort of calming effect that makes your relax or concentrate. Therefore, this is the song I like best in your selection.

Once again, I would like to thank my opponent for this exciting round of debate.

I'd vote, but Youtube is blocked at my school.

I have a suggestion:

Cloud Atlas: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil

A very classical and emotional piece. I love it and constantly listen to it.

Sorry for the unintelligible composer's name in the last round--it was a formatting error c/p-ing from Word. I ask voters to please disregard this. The name should be Dong Dongdong with inflections on the "o" vowels that I cannot insert here.

Tbh I've never done this before either, but I've been wanting to do it for some time. Kind of a test run ^.^ Just follow my format and you'll be fine :)
