This is the most profoundly spiritual and Vortex-inducing song ever written in the history of this and every Universe that exists or will ever exist.

In fact, the energy within it manifests at such an incredibly high vibrational level that only the true "Chosen Ones" will ever perceive it in its proper intended sacred form...

..the rest of us just hear some weird ditty about ducks and bad weather :)

Why is this song so short? I wished it was longer, it kinds of leave me hanging at the end after making me chuckle for no reason near the middle

At first I thought vortex music was quiet music that you meditate to, which I do have some for that but I see it is music that picks you up so here are some from me.

Are You Experienced? - Jimi Hendrix

Voodoo Child - Jimi Hendrix

The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice - Jimi Hendrix

One Rainy Wish - Jimi Hendrix

Third Stone From The Sun - Jimi Hendrix

Gypsy Boy - Jimi Hendrix

Hey Baby - Jimi Hendrix

Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix

Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix

Angel - Jimi Hendrix

1983 A Merman I Shall Turn To Be - Jimi Hendrix

Driven South - Jimi Hendrix

Easy Rider - Jimi Hendrix

Foxy Lady - Jimi Hendrix

Gypsy Eyes - Jimi Hendrix

Johnny B. Goode - Jimi Hendrix version

The Messiah Will Come Again - Roy Buchanan

Sweet Dreams - Roy Buchanan

When A Guitar Plays The Blues - Roy Buchanan

Scuttle Buttin' - Stevie Ray Vaughn

Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles

Pictures Of Match Stick Men - Status Quo

Crimson and Clover - Tommy James and the Shondells

Time Has Come - The Chambers Brothers (This hard rocking song could use a change of lyrics to be more positive.)

With A Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker

Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf

Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf

Hurdy-gurdy Man - Donovan

Baba'O Riley - The Who

Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson

Cult Of Personality - Living Colour

Shine - Collective Soul

Surfing With The Alien - Joe Satriani

This is a short list there are so many more right now I can't think of but I know them. I will edit this list later.

You can tell I like Acid Rock, you don't need the drugs, just let the music carry you there in your mind.

Here is a link to Space Rock radio. It has some very cool stuff like Acid Rock but as well you can hear what is called Space Rock invented by Roy Buchanan. As can be heard in Roy's song You're not alone.

@Wade-Thanks for your contribution here.What a great list of songs here and Guitarists! My Bro just seen Eric Johnson in concert a few weeks back in Glasgow:)

(27 Jul '12, 17:24) Satori

Most people do not know this, but Wade plays a mean lead guitar!!! He rocks!!! Just for general consumption; he plays a lot of these...Jai.♥♥♥

(27 Jul '12, 19:53) Jaianniah

@Satori Cool I have his Texas Austin concert on DVD. He Eric actually plays a live version of Are You Experienced? And makes it sound like Jimi's backwards guitar recording. He plays it using his volume knob and feed back, it is excellent! E.J. Live ought to be awesome to see! :-)

(27 Jul '12, 19:54) Wade Casaldi

@Wade Casaldi, great list!:)

(28 Jul '12, 00:53) Xoomaville

@Wade Casaldi - I just knew you were into guitar by looking at that list:) Yeah EJ is an amazing guitarist.I have never heard anyone gets the Tone he does.My brother is a fan as he is a Guitarist.I'm more of a bass man:)

(28 Jul '12, 06:33) Satori

I could tell Wade plays guitar by this list as well, even if I didn't already know.

(29 Jul '12, 09:08) Fairy Princess

Yes I do play guitar my main influence is Jimi Hendrix, but Stevie Ray Vaughn and Roy Buchanan are big influences on me too. I also like Danny Gaton, Dick Dale, Yngwie Malmsteen, Gary Moor and Robin Trower. Most any great guitarist I like and they have an influence on my playing. As blues playing, Albert King, Freddy King, B.B. King, Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker. Still mainly Jimi though. I do play Cliffs of Dover but I use a lot of cool saturation to sound awesome!

(29 Jul '12, 22:01) Wade Casaldi

No way will I play Cliffs of Dover clean like Eric Johnson. The tone he gets and has is amazing. Clear every note perfect. I use reverb, fuzz, and maybe some echo.

(29 Jul '12, 22:16) Wade Casaldi

@Wade Casaldi, you are reminding me of an old friend.. Never heard anyone mention Yngwie Malmsteen but him! :)

(31 Jul '12, 14:30) Grace

Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison

Changes by David Bowie Since I can't really hear what he's saying, so I say, "But I can change time." It makes more sense than mumbling something I can't hear. LOL

Imagine by John Lennon

Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles One day at the end of the scool day while I was waiting with a student for their bus, I started singing, "Here comes the bus..." When I got home, my son told me that he was singing the same words as he waited for his bus in the morning.

Sunshine of your love by Cream I loved this as a kid, but didn't know who it was. It took me a long time to find out who this was and what song it is. A friend pointed out to me a long time ago, that these songs I love and don't know who they are, they are probably Bread or Cream. So I should have known.

Baby I'm-a Want You by Bread

(28 Jul '12, 00:56) Xoomaville

I don't have a playlist but most of Micheal Jackson's songs put me in the vortex... especially Earth song, We are the world, Heal the world, Human nature, The girl is mine, Hold me, Keep the faith, Bad, You rock my world, Man in the Mirror and so many others...Native American music also do it for me... oh and I like dancing to Zangalewa from Cameroon...and Manu Dibango also from cameroon I like Mariam Makeba from South Africa, especially her song Pata pata

That's all I can think of now, hope that helps:)

I love Broadway Musicals and Orchestral Movie music. These two genres would be at the top of my preference list.

Rudy - The Final Game

I can dive into greatness when listening to this one.

Edit - I don't know how I could of forgotten following one. I came across it again today. I'm actually thinking I must have a previous life experience from era of Swing music, because every time I hear swing play, my body starts to twist and feet dance. Only after it does I notice it. Usually my thoughts come before my moves.

Caravan Palace - Brotherswing

(29 Jul '12, 10:55) Satori

Too easy.

Whitesnake- Is this Love

XX- The intro. This music is featured in an equally inspiring freerun video. Personally I think it's one of the best videos produced on Youtube ever. Similar to the soundtrack of Bloodsport.

Songs from the 70's are great for me. They put me back to a time when I was in my late teens and life was nearly perfect. My parents were alive and in their prime of life, high school was great, I was physically the best I would ever be, had no worries, I had lots of friends, activities and all was well. The songs from that time transport me back to those wonderful times with all of the happy memories, and are the ones that motivate me and put me into the vortex the most. And since this was the type of music I came into adulthood listening to, it is the type I am most comfortable with. There is nothing deep or meaningful about the songs on my list, I just love them!

The Hollies --- The Air That I Breathe

Golden Earring --- Radar Love

Styx --- Lady

Moody Blues --- Nights In White Satin

Led Zeppelin --- Stairway To Heaven

David Bowie --- Fame

Elton John --- Philadelphia Freedom

The Bee Gees --- Night Fever

(28 Jul '12, 01:00) Xoomaville

These are not strictly 'Happy Songs' but they get something positive stirring within me:)

If you are ever feeling down for whatever reason and even if you've watched this most inspirational video before, watch SUSAN BOYLE (watch from the very beginning)

Don't let anybody, anybody tell you, you can't make it:)

New God moving over the face of the waters by Moby (lyrics) (Most emotional but inspirational tune)

New Art of flight (unofficial trailer) M83 outro (Most emotional but inspirational tune)

The Lion King - Hakuna Matata

The Lion King - Circle Of Life

REM - Shiny Happy People

Coldplay - Paradise

Sarah McLachlan- In The Arms Of An Angel- Film- City Of Angels

Anne Lennox - Why

Anne Lennox - Sweet Dreams

Timbuktu - Resten av ditt liv ( I just like this fun song although I do not understand the lyrics. Hoping its nothing offensive. If anyone has the link to lyrics please share)

U2 - WITH OR WITHOUT YOU (My Ode to The Vortex:))

@Satori, please feel free to edit:)

(28 Jul '12, 00:45) Xoomaville

@Grace, I've fixed the Susan Boyle link now. This is the most inspirational video ever for me. In the beginning of the clip, its not that she is confident, she just remains positive, truly positive. Awesome:) and thanks for the lyrics to Timbuktu, I think I'll just stick to the music, its just fun even when i don't understand it:))

@Nikulas, Circle of Life now included in the list:)

(28 Jul '12, 00:52) Xoomaville

@Xoomaville, that clip of Susan Boyle goes way past goosebumps - I don't think I've ever been able to watch it and keep calm. I sing (though nothing like that), and an audition that ends in a standing ovation? Lol! A dream indeed! And the look on her face... God she's beautiful... She deserved every drop of that success...Im gushing again... its just been that kind of day, emo day. :)

(28 Jul '12, 04:29) Grace

@Grace, true you said she deserved every bit of it...I just chuckle at the reversal of judges expressions:)

Hiya, Satori--

Good Question!


I like classical stuff, so here's a list of some of my favorites. Please try them if you have not ever tried classical music.

In my father's memory: 1812 Overture. Today is the sixth anniversary of his death...I miss him....I thank him for introducing me to this and other great music.

Beethoven's Ninth Symphony (Ode to Joy) Remember as you listen to this that Beethoven was totally deaf when he wrote this, his last, Symphony. Unbelievable!

Solfigietto for Piano by CPE Bach. What is neat is that it is only one note at a time-for the most part...It goes by quick!

Moonlight Sonata, First Movement, Beethoven. I LOVE this one....

Hallelujah Chorus from the Messiah by Handel. A real upper!

The Messiah by Handel...For Christmas or Easter- must listen to it all! This is the NPR version which explains the whole piece of music.

Flight of the Bumblebee This one is played by Maksim...Cool!

The Firebird Be sure to listen all the way through

The Emperor Concerto for Piano by Beethoven- Gorgeous!

I also Like NEW AGE MUSIC- I'll add that list in the near future.

Jimmy Eat World - The Middle... In the car last week, I was thinking of everyone here and the general tone and theme of the thoughts you share with me here, and just at that moment, a song came on the radio that rocked my little world: (You just gotta turn your speakers up!) I could hear many of your voices in that song, just check out the lyrics. Dangerously celebratory car-dancing ensued... :)

Katherine Jenkins - In The Arms of an Angel Its so beautiful; her voice, her beauty, the song's.... and she soars! I finally found a link to the video with the acrobatics I wanted so much to share. It makes my eyes water every time I see it.

MC Hammer - You Can't Touch This... I found out I can still dance like a dervish at 2:00 a.m. LOL I still got it! Forgot where I put it for a minute, but its around here somewhere... This song got me outta bed and on my dancing feet!

Kelvin Mockingbird - A Cricket's Love (short preview). Lovely.

What a Wonderful World... Wonderful

Trip The Light (Where The Hell Is Matt?)... My happiest happy song. But truely, its the video. I want to live/love/laugh like that!

Damien Rice - Delicate... I still listen to this most every day. I just love it so.

U2 - Running to Stand Still ... Just because it is so. damned. beautiful.

alt text

Ray LaMontagne - I could hold you in my arms forever... Because I dreamed this last night.

U2 - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For .... Thought for a minute... Must have been mistaken. It's all good.

Ray LaMontagne - Let It Be Me ... I just love everything about this song. The guitar, his voice, the rhythm, the lyrics, the heart and soul all over it. I love it.

Ray LaMontagne - Winter Birds ... Became the background music all day, on a day I felt very loved. Now I can play it whenever I want to feel that way again - works instantly. :)

@Grace, yes she is. Got some of her albums and bought tickets to her Christmas concert in December in London, but decided to give them away as a b'day present as financial troubles caught up with me and I wouldn't be able to buy plane tickets lol. But yea, she's great :)

@Xoomaville, are you stuck being able to read but not post, like I was? I know, dumb question, you can't answer. I've been watching the news. You are missed.

(31 Jul '12, 14:28) Grace

@CalonLan - I found a good link to the Katherine Jenkins video with the acrobatics I was on about. Makes my heart pound, my eyes water. I love it.

(02 Sep '12, 04:13) Grace

@Grace- You have sneaked a few in here Grace;) Running to stand still is excellent. In fact the whole Joshua tree album should be in here:)

(05 Sep '12, 16:17) Satori

:) @Satori - I drove out to Joshua Tree over the weekend to visit an old friend's grave. It is beautiful in the desert at dawn. Listened to the cd all the way. Love it all.

(05 Sep '12, 16:29) Grace

@Grace- That is so cool Grace. That must have been sumthin else. :)

(05 Sep '12, 16:39) Satori

@Satori - it was. It is hard to describe the stark loveliness of the place, how the clean, dry air makes you feel.... You're so kind to take interest in everybody's little treasures. It makes us all feel so good, you know. One kind word from you on a sad, raw day like today is like balm to a sore heart. So glad you're here.

I went to youtube to listen to these songs and I found this version of Brand New Day with misheard lyrics. Read the little purple words in the video to read the funny words they say.

The ONE thing i Love the most is WEEN, NO matter what is wrong, they can lift me and put me in my zone of love/light. And even though my last one doesn't put me in that "vortex", making it did, and so re visiting that feeling can be done simply by hitting play. :-)

Ween - Tried and True

Ween - If you could save yourself (you'd save us all) - watch the vid too

Ween - Did You See Me?

Ween - Transdermal Celebration

My own song i made- Sons Of Boognish - Shamemaker ( ween cover ) - :-)

I like Queen because I love singing.

However, there is one album I can listen to while looking at Thomas Kinkade's paintings of cottages that just puts me "there". Totally at peace, filled with happiness and wonder.

Clannad Landmarks.

I'm not really sure why the specific combination of that album and those images does it for me, but it's really like angel wings wrapped around me.

Sorry about not listing specific songs; the entire album does it for me! :)

(30 Oct '12, 18:18) Grace

Is there a question on IQ already concerning what you mean by the different vortex's e.g Low-left, High-right etc ? if not could you please explain what you mean by it? thank you.

(30 Oct '12, 18:51) lastplacefavourite

@Grace - Thank you! I love 80s music :D

(31 Oct '12, 11:34) ExistentiaLux

@lastplacefavourite - It's difficult to explain, as prior to this site, I'd never heard "vortex" used. I was raised to seek Alignment. I eventually developed my own concept of different aspects of Alignment. The Right-Hand represents community, reality, relationships, ect. The Left represents fantasy, individuality, spirituality, ect. Basically, each Association is a colored filter through which shines the divine light of Alignment.

(31 Oct '12, 11:38) ExistentiaLux

Thank you for helping. Are the associated places in the respective areas of your mind?

It has been very interesting reading everyone's musical tastes that I had to get involved. I listen to all music really, literally I can listen to everything except the obviously un-talented mind numbing noise that occupies most of the worlds airwaves and popular culture at the moment. But that being said my few favourite genres that I put the most effort into collecting and listening to are a sub-genre of electronic music called Drum and Bass and underground Hip-Hop.

I say underground Hip-Hop purely for the fact that I'm assuming most people on IQ will instantly think of music that I would say falls under my "obviously un-talented mind numbing noise" label. So I say underground Hip-Hop as you are more likely to think of the acts that I percieve to be 'real' and not necessarily making music for profit.

Drum and Bass will always put me into the vortex (well what I think is my vortex I'm not to sure if it is yet) whether I am mixing it on my turntables or just listening to it or going nuts at a rave.

A few examples of Drum and Bass (from different sub-genres) would be:

my favourite type of D+B called Neurofunk!.. Batbots by Billain

A more Tech step track... Submerged (Calyx and Teebee Remix) by Break

and a classic Jump-Up tune... Mr Happy by Dj Hazard and Distorted Minds

I'm quite sure a lot of you will describe that as noise but heres to hoping someone will appreciate something in there, if anyone needs suggestions of artists I will be very happy to help out.

As for Hip-Hip that I like it gets a bit more complicated as most of it is very realistic and wouldnt necessarily put you into the vortex (it may even take you out of it) but it is a massive part of my life and culture and I love it so much that I am trying to find a way of making the negativity it carries with it turn into positivity or as a way of venting negative emotions in order to be replaced with positive ones.

A few songs by some of my favourite acts that do put me into the vortex would be as follows:

UK acts: I have realised that most of my favourite UK acts are mainly neutral or negative but this is due to the situations that we are in here in the UK and obviously through their own influences respectively.

Walk with me by Leaf Dog:

Anything by Jam Baxter (his lyrics are genius, here is some of his bars over a random instrumental):

England by Jehst: This track describes some of the situations in the UK and is placed rather well along with footage of the riots that took place last year.

US acts:

Above the clouds by Gangstarr featuring Inspektah Deck from WU-Tang Clan I have a feeling the lyrics of Guru the MC from gangstarr will resonate with a few of you, he was way ahead of his time and I think he had a very advanced spiritual side.

Sunshower by the RZA Same thing goes for the RZA as what i said about Guru, I have a few books by him and he is very wise learning lessons through life and from eastern asian influences. The lyrics in this song take you on a journey that has many hidden lessons contained within.

This is from another very intelligent artist: Mathematics by Mos Def

And lastly from the third king of Hip-Hop: Put it on by Big L

I just realised I haven't mentioned I am a massive Bob Marley fan, I have every song I could find by him.

As too answer your question all music makes me happy, it is a passion and I can always find something in any type of sound and music that I find pleasing.

Thank you for listening if you decided to give it a try!

one of my favourite rappers from the uk has uploaded a video on youtube of their new song. It shows knowledge of a lot of subjects and its evident he understands something as his self run record label is getting rather big and he is helping to showcase a lot of talent, He even mentions living his life by the law of attraction.

Michael Jackson's songs always work for me especially songs like Human Nature, Man In The Mirror, Earth Song and Will You Be There.

Sing-a-longs make me happier for some reason:

The Proclaimers - 500 Miles (Family Guy)

Elton John - Tiny Dancer (Almost Famous)

Kenny Rogers - The Gambler (The Office)

The Human Beinz - Nobody But Me (The Office)

Wilson Philips - Hold On (Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle)

Gladys Knight & The Pips - Midnight Train to Georgia (30 Rock)

I'll add more later. That's all I have for now...
