I am fairly musically illiterate, but I will do my best!
I can sing but I can't play an instrument, read music, pick out notes or eras. I like a wide range of music but can't really tell you why except that certain songs move me. I will listen to different musicians depending on the mood I am in, but I couldn't tell you why that is, either.
Sopor Aeternus combines beautiful and what could be considered horrific vocals, drawing on sounds of raw human pain and terror.
The Skeletal Garden is a good example of this. The music could be described as a combination of Renaissance sounding music and unearthly howling vocals.
I also appreciate the way opera music and classical pieces such as Lacrimosa, Waltz of tge Flowers and No One Shall Know My Name can stir our emotions.
Some of my other favourite songs include Wytches and Heart of Lilith by Inkubus Sukkubus, Cemetry Gates by The Smiths, Winterborn by The Cruxshadows, Charlotte Sometimes, The Hanging Garden, The Lovecats and Burn by The Cure. Also pretty much everything by Agnes Obel and Loreena McKennit.
My favourite song is usually Just Like Heaven by The Cure.
Well, I did my best, dear professor, please give me an A for effort!
Please check out the other students homework as well!
