I manage my husband as a producer out here in the Caribbean and he makes a lot of melodious instrumentals... would you listen to instrumentals or do you need vocals on a song for you to enjoy it?
Don't see any problem with instrumental music. I like to listen to some when I'm reading or writing. A vocal track can be distracting
I usually need the vocals. Because in them is contained the meaning.
Instrumentals can be just as powerful as songs with lyrics, if not more. Piano instrumentals are relaxing to listen to and I've always loved older Jazz music. I have to say my favorite instrumental is probably Metallica's "Orion" or Miles Davis's "So What"
thanks for participating in this discussion, im hearing a lot of music i mightnt have heard otherwise! i will take a listen to the two you mentioned... in the meantime i would love to hear what you think about Teardropz, a beat produced by my husband..
you can scroll down a little and see the link (i'm thinking if i post the link too many times, i might get flagged up for spamming or something similar)...
Just finished listening to the beat your husband made. Really relaxed and cool vibe, I dug it. I enjoyed the instrumentation throughout it especially the passages where it became more lush. Great work
thank you for listening to the production detail... its greatt to have your support! its one of my favourite beats... you can check out more of our beats here... http://imcinc.weebly.com/beats-by-imc-inc.html
he produced this particular beat whilst studying engineering at Point blank music college in London...
Really good work. He needs to stick with it, I can tell there's a lot of imagination in his music. Tell him to keep up the good work. Great job
I think this depends on if it is from a known song or not. If it is the instrumental of a well known song, most people would prefer to just hear the song. If the instrumental is created as an instrumental, I think people would be fine with that.
Yeah, I really like instrumentals. Jazz, chill beats, that sort of thing. I put them on when I'm reading, writing, drawing, or painting. Sometimes lyrics can distract me when I'm trying to be creative myself.
i know exactly what you mean - sometimes lyrics can detract from the entire track... when i am writing articles or hubs i can easily listen to an instrumental it can even enhance my productivity, but songs with lyrics can throw me off my train of thought...
I would love to hear what you think of this instrumental my husband produced ...

Instrumentals and classical music definitely have their place -- I listen to them when I study, read, or write. Anything when I need to be focused, but like to have some ambient noise.
There are a great many instrumentals in different styles that I like. From big-band jazz to instrumental rock (including the "surf" music from half a century ago), and even some classical. So yeah, if it has harmony, melody, and rhythm, then I'll listen to it.
thats interesting...for me the melody of the instruments & their harmonisations are the two main things that either attract me to that beat or make me never hear it again...
R&B beats tend to pull at the heartstrings a little more, whereas the swing genre beats transition me into another type of mood...on the other hand, certain dancehall & reggae beats are addictive, but then again i love rock too & indian instrumentals are great also!
If it's the kind of music (melody) that I like - instrumentals are among my favorite kind of music. If I like the vocal version of a song I'll usually want a few different instrumental version of it too (solo, orchestra, band, whatever). Then there's classical too. (I don't happen to like most traditional jazz, and Big Band kind of makes me want to kill myself or someone else -but that's just me. )
sure...luv instrumentals...various genres, styles...and from different parts of the world
wow! before i met my husband i never really listened to instrumentals, but i heard one particular beat he made that felt like it was playing with my heart lol.. are you open to hearing it?
Yes I do! When an instrumental piece is done extremely well, vocals are not needed. There are quite a few songs that I prefer the instrumental over the vocals.
id love to hear what you all think of the composition & the overall sound of the beat...
Well, there's well produced instrumentals and then there's fooling around with a synthesizer and drum machine, which appears to be the latter here.
Instrumentals are much better than a lot of what passes for "singing" these days.
A band who can make a good instrumental always gains my respect and appreciation. So the answer is no... I don't need vocals to enjoy music. However, I do respect a talented singer.
that's encouraging! we are always releasing fresh instrumentals for artists & music lovers, but the interest seems to be considerably higher with artists than with casual music listeners.
I tried posting a beat or two here to get your opinions, but it seems we are not allowed to do that as it isnt showing up...
For me, it really depends on who and what. Some music is excellent with out vocals, while other pieces of music are worthless without vocals.
Some have vocals that would be better off without... IMHO, Lulu is one such example.
its true! sometimes I hear a beat by itself and cant really connect with it, but when i hear the same beat with an artist on it, it really doesnt sound too bad...
let me know what you think of the instrumental i put up - my husband produced it whilst he was studying in London...
I like instrumentals. Two of my favorite Duran Duran songs are Tel Aviv and Tiger Tiger, both without the vocals of my fav Simon leBon.
i think some instrumentals are so melodious themselves that no vocal is needed to showcase the beat.... but other times, the beats can be monotonous & require the vocals to really light up the track...
but interesting - you obviously really love those instrumentals because you don't mind that your fave is not on them! did you get a chance to listen to the instrumental i put up? i'd love to hear what you think...
I did. I enjoyed it, it had a very melodic tone while still having a dominant drum bass. It started off kind of like The Clannad, but the beat gave it a more jazz tone the further I listened.
He does good work!
I listen to many instrumentals - guitar-based like Shawn Lane and Joe Satriani, electronic music by Steve Roach or Jon Jenkins, music scores by Mark Isham, Thomas Newman and Hans Zimmer, or modern surf music by The Mermen. All good stuff to let your mind wander to.
interesting mix! I will check a few of those out for sure...
you mentioned you like guitar based beats.. what do you think of this one?

I think that an instrumental song is a wonderful thing. Although, I do love meaningful lyrics, I can be moved just as easily by a well crafted, dynamic, and passionate instrumental.
I do agree with a previous post that while writing or reading instrumentals are a much better fit. Unless you want the lyrics of the songs influencing whatever you are writing of course.

Do you listen to completely different music for different moods?For example I listen to alternative and rap when happy, rock when sad, country when homesick, and classic rock when intoxicated. Do you listen to opposite types of music for moods?

I'm a musician and know the power and value of music. I'm curious what people find emotional in music (and looking for trends for a paper I'm going to write).It's very simple - post the name of a piece of music that moves you to tears, causes a lump in your throat or affects you emotionally. For...
