Songs that blew you away when you first heard them Part 2

It's SO long since I've been blown away by a song I can't even remember.
I hears an old Jimi Hendrix song called How Would You Feel and I guess I was blown away, but didn't realise what it was about (racism). Now I do know I feel less blown away.

In college, everyone was obsessed with Elliott Smith. I liked him. But didn't really "get it" until I heard his song The Biggest Lie. I thought it was a near perfect song - the lyrics, the melody. the gentle/haunting voice, the guitar work - and then became an Elliott acolyte.

Oh god, where to start..
I was about 5 or 6 years old when my brother was gifted a VHS collection of Queen's greatest hits. This was in 1992, I think. Freddie passed away a year before that.
My brother immediately wanted to watch the video clips, all the other gifts (it was Saint Nicolas' Eve) be damned.
The tune, the blasting drums and guitars, the melodic climax, the voice, the hair, the leotard..!! MARY!
I was instantly hooked. It just blew my gayling brain.

My 2nd entry: Many years later, somewhere in my early twenties, I was last to stay in a gay bar, having developed a bit of a fling with the barkeeper. It was an autumn night, raining in Amsterdam.
Played on the bar's fantastic sound installation came Ella Fitzgerald, singing Angel Eyes. We smoked a cigarette, just listening to that godly voice of hers...

This is embarrassing. This is also Datalounge so it’s ok.
When I was 10, I remember my parents having the radio on outside on the the patio. The windows were open and I was in our dining room looking at our angel fish aquarium. This song came on and I froze in place and almost cried…because I thought the song was so incredible. It is not incredible at all. It is terrible. Ah, youth.

I love the potential of these threads, but they're always ruined by one or two assholes who post endless bullshit. But I'll contribute.
I was four years old when this song was released, and it blew me away. I was obsessed. My mother was on an afternoon duckpin bowling league for a bit, and would give me and my (older) sister money to spend in the arcade. I didn't play the video games. I spent it on the jukebox. "Material Girl" was always on my list, as well as Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It", of all things.
I was never going to be anything but gay, gay, gay. And knowing how things turned out, this memory always makes me smile.

THIS is one of the most influential songs in my life. After I discovered it among my parents' records, I could not stop playing it; I was aurally mesmerized.
Alas, though I wanted and expected to learn the trumpet, my father, who had played the trombone, checked that instrument on my school form and that was that.

If song's are on the same album, just post the album. Or post the song on the album that is your favorite with an honorable mention to the entire album.
It's that simple.

No it's not as simple as you described R160. Not all albums are able to posted in their entirety.
The album at R154 for example might not have been popular enough for someone to upload as an entire album or the label/artist might've had it taken down (MCA, Prince, etc.) & what if someone wasn't a fan of all of the songs anyway?
The OP asked for "blew you away" songs - not entire "blew you away" albums to search through (this thread isn't about giving out a pretend Grammy for best album).
Honorable mention? Are you stuck in school somewhere?
If you don't like a certain genre on a music thread just ignore them all (R123 R124) like a mature adult would.
It's that simple.

For me, vocals are really what sets off the "mind-blowing" experience. No doubt that there are some rather beautifully composed and/or written songs but my choices would be Mariah Carey's records mainly for the vocal showdown.
Vision of Love
Emotions (the whistles; first time I heard it, I couldn't believe human voice could go that high like a freakin bird)
We Belong Together (the final chorus in an octave higher scale is pure Mariah goodness)
Stay the Night (the final "and you keep on sayin" part)
Anytime You Need a Friend (the final chorus is so soulful and ends the song beautifully)

R161 Dude, is that what you got from our posts? It has NOTHING to do with the genres of music.
I read DL on my mobile most of the time and the scrolling process is already a pain in the ass. It doesn't help that you have to scroll by 8 songs from the same record. Why not just post the best one and give the album a little review? Why post downloads of ALL of the songs?
Either you're being argumentative or you're the one doing it. BTW, the poster's ONLY doing it to get this reaction--and OF COURSE, I'm giving it to him. Yay me. I don't think that's too much ask

R177-182, what about each of these songs uniquely blew you away? I can think of maybe ten songs in my entire 60+ years that were so striking they blew my mind.
|by Anonymous||reply 183||September 12, 2022 2:34 AM|
R183. I enjoyed...
1 = the atmosphere of all 6 (I think this is lacking in most post 1990 songs except for a few artists like Adele)
2 = the voices/vocal arrangements (reminded me some of Annie Lennox's solo work)
3= how they brought all of the different instruments together. Not all artists in the new century can do that last part.
I usually avoid non-English albums but I enjoyed that one so I might try to listen to more in the future when I come across them. Not all of the songs above "blew my mind" but the OP on the 1st thread also said "hit you like a freight train" which most of these did. Most tunes that I've heard in the past decade don't move me in any way.

Olivia's "Grace and Gratitude" album blew me away the first time I heard it - I played it repeatedly the first night I bought it. It was originally an 'exclusive' at Walgreen's in October, 2007, where she teamed up with them to promote 'breast cancer awareness' . The CD was at the cash registers, selling for $5 (since her passing, I've seen this OOP CD listed for over $100 now on different sites). The next day, I went back and bought all they had - kept some extra copies for myself and gave the rest out to friends and family for Christmas gifts - everyone loved it, couldn't believe it was ONJ. I can not believe this album was not recognized by the Grammys. (It peaked at #2 on Billboard's New Age Album Charts).
In 2010, she re-released the album in Amazon under another record label as 'Grace and Gratitude - Renewed', with some extra songs and some 'tweaking' to the original recordings - it's OK, but this original is better.

Probably one of the best recordings by Streisand in her entire recording career. This should have been the lead track on the album "Back to Broadway" in 1993 (instead of the awful 'Some Enchanted Evening') and the single off the album in America (where no single was released at all). The rest of the album is a mixed bag, not nearly as strong as 1985's "The Broadway Album".

I went to a Chris Isaak concert in Orlando circa 1991(?) and it was 85% women and 15 % gay men. I was with 2 girlfriends,and both of them said their panties were soaking wet after the concert. During the concert you could feel the sexual tension in the venue. He was at the peak of his beauty then.He also had a magnetism that you had to experience live. He had that entire audience eating out of his hands. It was a great evening. He could have gotten laid 500 times that night.from both men and women !

R337 just brought me back to the 60s and 70s, when our swim club played the pop radio station through its speakers. I can see myself playing in the pool, listening to it. It's how I remember most of the songs of that era. To remember something so distinctly about 50 years ago amazes me.

I was listening to R&B, hip hop and dance music almost exclusively in the late 80's, and had never gotten into this kind of stuff.
A friend of mine turned me on to this song, and I was totally mesmerized.
It eventually led me to The Cure, Depeche Mode, Siouxie and the Banshees, and a bunch of other great stuff I'd previously written off as "not my thing".
