BEST INSTRUMENTAL SONGS

...from my music library. Sometimes you need music, but want to be left alone with your thoughts. I'm always looking for more songs. What are your favorites?
  1. Tel Aviv - Duran Duran
    I know-- it's not fully instrumental, but this was the first song I encountered from a favorite band that didn't have any decipherable words I could sing.
  2. May December - Mos Def
    I played this on repeat while studying at Caffe Strada in college.
  3. Oscillate Wildly - The Smiths
    When I feel life is being ridiculous, I play this song.
  4. North - Phoenix
    The best song for driving back through the Santa Cruz Mountains, tan and tired.
  5. Star Guitar - Chemical Brothers
    Awesome video! Another mostly instrumental song. I play this when I have to take the BART or some other train.
  6. Aruarian Dance - Nujabes
    This song makes me feel content. Like I accept all the highs and lows of life and am cruising along to whatever comes next.
  7. Voyager - Daft Punk
  8. Never Dream - PDP
  9. Misirlou - The Surf Coasters
  10. Eruption - Van Halen - side one, track two. Best played at 11 http://youtu.be/sI7XiJgt0vY
