I'm not just talking about Mozart, Beethoven, etc. I'm talking about music that really calms your soul.
Music with the piano or violin; SOMETHING from the every day modern hip hop.
Music like the 60s or 70s where the song really had a meaning that WASN'T sex, violence, etc.

Anyone else like the classics that are truly soothing and meaningful?

Links are to Youtube:

The Zombies- Time of the Season (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc7b62El_fk)

Joni Mitchell- Cactus Tree (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLNF32bKed0)

J'adore la musique classique !

Yann Tiersen- Comptine d'un autre été (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyCRJmerW1Q)

Jean-Jacques Goldman- Je Te Donne (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjGNDluuK2s&feature=related)

I understand the term "classic" means differently to different people.
I should have used the term "older music". xD

Music like the piano or violin; xD

The piano and violin are not music. They are instruments used for playing a variety of styles of music.

Oh yes I'm a lover of all types of music really aside from that modern hip hop, rap, etc. That stuff makes me feel crazy.

I love Loreena McKennit when I'm just feeling like calming music! I'll post a couple of my favorites.

I didn't mean it like that. I meant songs WITH piano or violin. :D

I have a wide range of musical taste. Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles are my go to classics. I also enjoy hard rock/heavy metal. About the only thing I don't like is rap (with the exception of a few classics).
