Top 10 Songs That Create Vivid Images In Your Mind

Songs that wake up your imagination thanks to their lyrics, music, specific vocals, exotic or mystic tunes, unusual sounds, etc., or a combination of these elements.
Instrumentals are OK, too.

The Top Ten

1 Gates 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

2 Money - Pink Floyd

The sounds!
Most of the Pink Floyd songs can create vivid images. - Metal_Treasure

3 All 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

4 Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen

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

5 Fiddler 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

6 Lie Down In Darkness - Moby
7 Butterfly Caught - Massive Attack
8 One - Metallica
9 Fallen - Electus
10 Hall 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

12 Running to the Sea - Röyksopp
13 Blackstar - David Bowie
14 Retrograde - James Blake

16 El 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

17 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

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

18 Fable - Robert Miles
19 Age of Shadows - Ayreon

Specific music and sounds, cool story and the unusual chorus "01101000 01100101... ".
It's actually an ASCII code that an alien race sends and it means HELP.
01101000 - H
01100101 - E
01101100 - L
01110000 - P

8 awesome metal singers sing this song - 6 males and 2 females. This is a masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

20 The 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
