Most Touching/Beautiful Strato or Strato-based Songs

Post by browneyedgirl » Tue Jan 08, 2008 4:03 pm

What songs of Strato really reach you, touch you, make you feel?
What songs move you to tears, maybe make you remember lost loves or loves you still have?
What songs give you an emotional boost, or give you a sense of spiritually?
(By Strato-based, I mean songs of individual members on their albums)

My picks would be: Are You the One? Forever, Tears of Ice, Beauty Has Come, Coming Home, Before the Winter, Venus in the Morning, Soldiers Prayer, 4000 Rainy Nights, Million Lightyears Away.

In terms of spirituality, or "feel good"energy I would have to say Infinity, Mother Gaia, Destiny, Galaxies, We Hold the Key, Hold on to Your Dream, Phoenix, Black Diamond.
"Your life is yours, and yours alone. Rise up and live it!"

Archangel Michael: That's OK, Bob, because He doesn't believe in you, either!~Legion~

I've known the songs for so long that they don't really give many emotions anymore, althrough I like Coming Home, I think it gives some feeling... :?

As OotS said, all songs do but at the moment Tolkkis track Hymn To Life gets me all emotional.

Anyone else agree this track is emotionally powerful?

most touching songs:
Coming Home, Forever, Venus In The Morning, A Million Light Years Away, Mother Gaia

in another way special songs (I don't speak of romantic feelings, but in some other way very touching and meaningful) that reach me, having a special, mysterious meaning for me: Night Time Eclipse, Father Time, Destiny, When The Night Meets The Day, Galaxies

also special, but in a more depressing, disenchanting way:
Chasing Shadows, Twilight Symphony + Call Of The Wilderness, Around, Twilight Time

"feel good", emotionally boosting, in a positive way:
Tomorrow, Freedom, Out Of The Shadows, Hunting High & Low, Learning To Fly

I agree. And Back to Madness and Season of Change gets me emotional.
But the most touchy for me is an album: Elements pt 1 - every note is in it proper place.
And I like the happy metal-feel tracks like Find Your Own Voice, Freedom, Tomorrow, and Eagle Fly Free :D ok, this is Helloween sorry :P
Nothing to say.

nothig compares to Liberty

it´s son happy, hopefull and beautiful it´s a great song with great lyrics

ver touching to me
The faint blaze of the candle of my life,
slowly dying like a fire in a pouring rain.
No sparks of hope inside,
no shooting stars on my sky.
On broken wings, no flying high...

Hmm, tough one.


Coming Home, Season of Change, Infinity, A Million Light Years Away, The Abyss of Your Eyes, Forever (duh!) and Stratosphere plus the ending solo of Twilight Symphony are just plain brilliant and beautiful.
Close your eyes and try to remember, destroyed lullabies of days gone by
Close your eyes on the edge of forever, a chance to dream fast asleep your nightmare ends

Oh I forgot, Alpha & Omega gets me really nostalgic feeling, so does awaken the giant but not as much.

Wow, that is really tough because I have many different moods and Strato has so many different songs to fit those moods.

I would say for me, that right now at this very minute, the Strato song that is closest to my heart is "Will my Soul Ever Rest in Peace?". I have always felt a strong personal attachment to the lyrics and now due to some personal things going on in my life, the words have even more meaning to me.

There are so many other songs but I haven't been to the forum in a while so I don't want to bore anyone by typing all night. :lol:

Oh hell yes.

This songs are really touching:
Season of Change - especially at Visions of Europe... mmm... especially part after solo... "...and the meaning of this life is to live and is to die..." and so on... and such emotionally filled music here... It's really excellent...
Dear God - its lyrics... it's just incredible and scaring, very scaring if you try to think about all this words... I just can't simply listen it... And music... Music really strengthens filling about all this. Its soft at the beginning and justified aпgressive after solo, such aggressive that strikes me...
And finally "Father"... I just can't find words... This is unbelievably touching song...

she cloaks the world
in impenetrable darkness.
A chill rises
from the soil
and contaminates the air
suddenly...
life has new meaning."
