I really like instrumental music but I only have a few pieces that get me pumped up. Most being from Matrix, and Starwars soundtracks.

What instrumental music gets you pumped up?

Bagpipe music...

I listen to mostly instrumental music, being as my main interest is Classical, Jazz, traditional American music and fingerstyle guitar playing.

I love Tony McManus, Doug Smith, John Renbourn, Pierre Bensusan, Andres Segovia, Alex Degrassi, Mingus, Monk, Miles Davis, William Ackerman, Howard Emerson, Martin Simpson, Blind Blake, Paul Geramia and on and on and on.

As far as all time favorite instrumental pieces, I would probably put King Curtis's "The Games People Play" as one of my all time favorites. I would also say that Chopin's Nocturne in Eb Major, Opus# 9, # 2 is a favorite.

Try Also Sprach Zarathustra on sometime.

Ride of the Valkyries has some vocals, as does some of the better Beethoven.

Take 5, by Dave Brubeck, rocks.

(I think)The style of music you are referring to is called electronic music.

Check out Chemical Brothers.

If you like that kind of beat, you might want to check out a CD series put out by Mark Farina called Mushroom Jazz. It is kinda jazzy trip-hop.

There is alot of downtempo and trip-hop out there.... years worth.

Maybe check out a guy called Aphrodite, or maybe S.A. Fred........... first guy you can find on CD to buy, second guy only has stuff online. Might be hard to find, but definetely worth it.

Lots of good ones but the first that came to mind was Joe Satriani.

ETA: Also Micheal Shrieve, Oakenfold and some Moby.

A few of the ones that really get me excited are, in no particular order:

Saint-Saens' Symphony no. 3
Rimski-Korsakov's Scheherazade
Stravinski's The Rite of Spring
Brahms' Symphony no. 4
Debussy's La Mer
Lizst's Les Preludes
Sibelius' Finlandia

Check out the Matrix Reloaded soundtrack "Furious Angels" (Instrumenatls) by Rob Dougan. thats the kind of style I like.

I like the Metallica instrumentals: call of cthulu and orion mostly. Speaking of electronic music, the Fight Club soundtrack is pretty cool as well. I also like a lot of classical music. Stuff like Holst's the planets, 1812 overture, stars and stripes forever, and a lot of other random songs.
Link Posted: 4/5/2006 9:50:10 AM EDT
Pumped up? For working out?

Serphim Shock. Misfits. Godsmack. Helmet. Pantera. Primus. Beastie Boys. Danzig. Marilyn Manson. Electric Hellfire Club. Lordi.

Anything with a heavy driving beat, up tempo, and "fuck it all" lyrics. If it is the type of stuff you wouldn't want young, impressionable minds listening too... then it is probably on my play list.

This morning, Motörhead's March or Die got me through my last set of squats without a hitch.

You're ALL wrong!...The greatest instrumental to get "pumped up" is Van Halen's Eruption. Eddie may be a drug-abusing, mental midget. But the man can absolutely WAIL!!!

Compare him to Malmsteen or Vai. Van Halen is no better than Kirk Hammet where it counts. Hell, John Christ is a better guitarist than Eddie going on pure technical skill.

I'm guessing this is SoundScan numbers. They are far from correct.

KISS is well over 100 million worldwide, but most were sold before the SoundScan records started.

Dixie

I wish I lived in LiberalLand so I could whistle it and piss 'em off.

ETA: when I ran NT at home and the kids were young, I had it played everytime they signed on- for about a week. "Stand Up and Salute!" popped up on their screen. Then they boohooed to the wife and she made me take it off.
