Best Explosions In the Sky SongsThis is an interactive top ten list for the best songs from the Austin based post-rock band, Explosions in the Sky.
The whole song is just beautiful. It's hopeful melancholy... Or maybe melancholic hope. Few songs make you feel wondrous joy and pitch black depression like this one does.
Goose bump city! If I could read brail, my skin is probably say something like 'this must be what heaven feels like'
No words to describe this song's beauty. The melancholy is enough to make you cry. But those are tears of joy
I'm in love with this piece of art.
It reminds me of someone who I loved and with whom I spent "that" only moment. I remember that feeling of being so blind, so stupid but so in love. I know you weren't but that was enough for me. Thinking of you almost drove me insane. When I look back I can see that I loved the idea I had of you. It still hurts sometimes. This song helped me easing the pain and still helps me a lot. I let you go, but I won't let that moment go. We will always be there, sharing that only moment alone. Stay there. I'll see you in a dream. Love, E.
This song always inspires me...
Beautiful song with a slow build up that climaxes in a wonderful 45 second chorus at around the 6:30 mark.
How can you not vote this as the best one. You feel yourself slip away for just a minute as the song begins to fade away. As the melody fades, you fade or you dream of some moment in your life fade away. Simply beautiful. Just dream and you'll feel it. Guaranteed.
Great music with the highlight being the last minute of the song as the instruments begin to fade behind the mega guitar riff.
The intense drums that surface at the chorus of the song and then the quiet tapping of the drumsticks after the chorus are definitely a treat to listen to.
This song is just so wonderful. I fall asleep to it so often. It begins so gently, building subtly until it grows into a melodic dream. I'm not even being poetic when I say it makes my heart feel warm; it really makes me happy.
Amazing song, at 3:41 to the end mind-blowing stuff happens. Giver a listen and bask in the wonders of life.
A mind blowing track, so very addictive!
Best emotion captured in Lone Survivor through this beautiful piece!
Beautiful music. Capable of bringing inner peace to a tormented mind
This is my personal favorite, great song, composition, sound and packed with emotion
I LOVE this song! Personal favourite that little guitar riff is just beautiful. It just makes me happy!
Criminally underrated track when it comes to EITS. The multiple changes in tone throughout the track seem to replicate an epic journey, with the result being the title, if you will. There are peaks, yet seemingly minimal valleys, as the intervals contain mutating riffs that constantly progress the song. The final moments end the track (along with the album) perfectly, finishing a heavy-hitting and power-driven record with a calming, hopeful closure. "With Tired Eyes" has no business being outside any EITS top-10 lists.
This one is my favourite...
