Here you put the most ideal music settings for certain albums/songs/etc. The more detailed, the better I think.

I was inspired to create this after I walked outside on a very overcast/gray day after it had been pretty sunny for awhile here. While doing that I was listening to M83's great Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts. Then I thought to myself, man this is working perfectly.

One that immediately comes to mind is walking by the Mississippi river as the sun is falling while listening to Bill Evans play All Mine (Minah).

Listen to Down Colorful Hill sometime when its a big thunderstorm. Grab a bottle of wine, turn all the lights off, and light some candles.

Kid A every time I'm driving through the mountains in a snowstorm (go figure). Every fucking time.

And Hex whenever it's just beautifully snowing outside.

Eric Dolphy's Out to Lunch while I pull up Forgie's Facebook profile pic and rub my dick on the screen.

The Soft Bulletin should be listened to on a breezy Summer day while walking outside.

Finally, someone made this thread.

I was driving home one night and this song came on:



I parked on my street and the hills in front of me were silhouetted by the sun that had just dipped behind them. The sky that night had been turned a rare brilliant orange, and everything was bathed in that half-light that lasts for only a few minutes but seems to slow down time. Right on cue an enormous flock of birds took off from the hills and into the sunset. A surreal but extremely powerful listening experience.

Listening to Type O Negative; World Coming Down, while watching video of the Twin Tower collapse.

World (trade center towers) Coming Down.
I can't look at that album cover, and not think this.

Damn, dude. That setting sounds a little too intense for me.

Another one:

Laughing Stock on a porch on a midsommer Missouri's eve, right at dusk and into twilight, the humidity at the seasonally appropriate but not uncomfortable level (roughly 47-53%), and a cool breeze from the northeast.

I feel like I reach the peak of coolness whenever I get a cigar and puff it while driving around on a sunny day listening to Woke Up This Morning.
