The Top TenXW

1Gates of Babylon - Rainbow

This song helps me imagine Babylon thanks to the oriental tunes and Dio's lyrics:
"Look away from the sea
I can take you anywhere
Spend a vision with me
A chase with the wind
You can see in your mind
The gates of Babylon". - Metal_Treasure

2Money - Pink FloydV1 Comment
3All for One - Primal Fear

Music is so relevant that I can hear machine guns in the main riff and esp. at 3:55-4:30. - Metal_Treasure

4Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen

It's an instrumental piece so you can imagine whatever you want. My favorite instrumental of all time. - Metal_Treasure

5Fiddler On the Green - Demons and Wizards

Mostly vocals and lyrics draw the picture in my mind but also the sad music in general. - Metal_Treasure

6Lie Down In Darkness - Moby
7One - Metallica
8Butterfly Caught - Massive Attack
9Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage

Jon Oliva's extremely expressive and crazy vocals boost my imagination. I love this guy - so talented but so underrated. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11The Trooper - Iron Maiden
12Running to the Sea - Röyksopp
13Blackstar - David Bowie
14Retrograde - James Blake

This video is about 19 or 20 years old but I can still remember those creepy, wide eyes and wide smile of those women. Just so...*shivers* - Britgirl

16Blue - Gemini
17El Cóndor Pasa - Simon & Garfunkel

El Cóndor Pasa - Spanish for "The Condor Passes".
The music of this song can take you to Peru.
It's actually a cover. Originally a song by the Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles, written in 1913 and based on traditional Andean folk tunes. In 2004, Peru declared this song as part of the national cultural heritage. - Metal_Treasure

18Fable - Robert Miles
19Age of Shadows - AyreonV1 Comment
20The Bard's Song (In the Forest) - Blind Guardian

A highly recommended acoustic ballad - retro tunes, impressive vox and beautiful lyrics create a mythical atmosphere:
"In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarves and men
And elves
Come close your eyes
You can see them too". - Metal_Treasure
