AHHHHH only in dreams is a really really good one. 

I like right at the pinnacle where the drums go DAH DAH-DAH DAH-DAH.  I always smash my steering wheel to the beat.

I think what my friend Mitch is trying to say is that true love is blind.

Now are we talking great buildups here or when the last chorus shoots up an octave (a la Man In The Mirror, every 90's country song)?

Crescendos are "buildups."  Essentially, just growing in volume.

I think the other thing you'e talking about is a "key change."

Dude, I took Mrs. Mulkey's music class in 6th grade.  I know what the word means.  Just asking for a bit of clarification from KK about if this is the right thread to talk about key changes too.

First thing I thought of.

Foo fighters

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Music with emotion.

Wie lieblich sind Deine Wohnungen at 3:00

isn't this pretty much the gold standard in terms of epic crescendos? (und weil wir deutsch sprechen sind. . .)

Well you weren't listening well enough because Mrs. M would not mix up a change in octave with a change in key.  Some one was sleeping during Obwisana.  :ROFL:

i don't speak german, that just was a pretty good version of the absolute greatest choral piece.

i was wondering why sprach zarathustra is never translated and found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thus_Spoke_Zarathustra
