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 :)

Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf
Hurdy-gurdy Man - Donovan
Baba'O Riley - The Who
Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson

Shine - Collective Soul

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.
Serenity in Sand and Stone by Dan Gibson I like to do my stretch routine to this.
Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf This was my theme song as a young adult. It came on the radio every time I hit the highway.
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
Hey Jude by The Beatles "Take a sad song and make it better." Love it!
Twist And Shout by The Beatles I can't listen to this without at least part of my body dancing.
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.
Walk and Talk Like Angels by Toni Childs When I was 18 riding the Greyhound bus, I met a girl with this tape. We traded tapes for the ride so we could change it up a little. I loved it so much I bought it when I could.
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.
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.
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.
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

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)

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!

Time to "chime in" ?
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!
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.
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. :)
It's a Kind of Magic by Queen
Big Time by Peter Gabriel
With Arms Wide Open by Creed
Most songs from the "Rocky IV" soundtrack

Couple of my favourites which have not been mentioned above:
I think we have an amazing playlist going. I will have to go through all the ones above that I have not heard of before and add them to my existing ipod playlist.
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 - If you could save yourself (you'd save us all) - watch the vid too

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.
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! :)

I usually listen to songs that are positive. Usually it's something fun and upbeat. Here are some of the songs on my feel good playlist:
Cowboy Bebop OST- Space Lion

I'm very organized with this sort of thing, based on which Association I want to be in, or where I am geographically (I have a question as to this on my profile). In other words, I have various songs depending on WHICH Vortex I wish to enter. This is a sample, 'cause my collection is notoriously large and I had to narrow it down a lot to get to this!
answered 30 Oct '12, 18:02
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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k441btwtJ8Y
A more Tech step track... Submerged (Calyx and Teebee Remix) by Break http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g22_oYuJBvg&feature=related
and a classic Jump-Up tune... Mr Happy by Dj Hazard and Distorted Minds http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlRn5bGF_4o
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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHIF7LOo7mw
Anything by Jam Baxter (his lyrics are genius, here is some of his bars over a random instrumental): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuJbUP0Hld0
England by Jehst: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76H5ukE3tYI&feature=related 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.
Above the clouds by Gangstarr featuring Inspektah Deck from WU-Tang Clan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IoPeNC4k_0 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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4okfrkpIYLs 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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5vw4ajnWGA&feature=related
And lastly from the third king of Hip-Hop: Put it on by Big L http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBrzEVJwYFg
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!
Michael Jackson's songs always work for me especially songs like Human Nature, Man In The Mirror, Earth Song and Will You Be There.
answered 05 Nov '12, 09:20
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)
I'll add more later. That's all I have for now...
