Nexus Playlist

Hey all! I thought we might get things started over here with a nice friendly post. Don't worry, we're not going to play any of those "getting to know you" games. Instead, we're going to play music.

Who'd like to help build a playlist for the Nexus? I've started one here, and will add to it as people make suggestions. I picked Youtube videos because this is something pretty much everyone who can get here can use, instead of needing to make an account for a music-streaming service.

I'm looking for songs about travel, travelers, magic, mystery, mad science, going mad... anything that makes you think of us, really. All genres are good if the song is good.

This feels to me like it captures the feeling of busy variety that the Nexus at full buzz can be. Also, it being the Nexus, I wouldn't be surprised if someone opened a door somewhere and found a room full of this thing.

You just really like that song.

True enough. Alright, how about an Enya piece about travel, meeting, parting, and wonder?

For bonus points, the Enya song includes a bit about being utterly, utterly lost. How Nexus is that?

There are worse sources of inspiration.

Man. I used to listen to Enya more when I was a young teen, but it's like seeing an old beloved friend again to hear her. That song does fit the whimsical nature I've seen in the nexus.

Halo 4 OST- Solace.

I've always liked to imagine these settings as the resting place of many individuals and heroes. And for some of them, their home. Or,

Yuki Kajiura - dream world

The bloody link doesn't work for non-US residents, but I hope you guys can hear it. Again, I imagine it as some sort of place where everything can happen, but all in all, it's a world where you'd like to rest your head in, for all it's violations against the laws of reality.

I couldn't find a working link for the song. Copyright claims on youtube stopped them all, but I hope it might come out sometime as time passes.

In any case, it's almost the same relaxed, calming tones with a sense of wonder. Kajiura's one of my favorite composers.
