I have searched the music forum for an instrumentals thread, but according to the search function there is none yet.

Music here should be overwhelmingly instrumental. Some instrumentals have a couple of voice bits in them, Oscar Peterson for instance used to grunt while playing That's OK. And I guess occasional angelic or synth voice sounds are OK, too, but there should not be lyrics as such, you know, with rhymes and stuff, you get my drift

An example of what I mean, Art of Noise's Moments in Love is OK.


YouTube - ART OF NOISE: MOMENTS IN LOVE (THE ORIGINAL)


Anyway, a classic from Kool and the Gang, sampled by various artists:

YouTube - Summer Madness

Instrumentals I have always loved....focus is on music not voice or message. I liked the posted ones a lot!

Thank you. No, I didn't know that station, will check if my connection is good enough for that stream.

Yes, music that manages to touch and move you without lyrics telling you what to think and feel, or diverting your attention
