Why this has never been used for the background of an event-closing montage (Olympic games Tour de France, Football world cup, etc.) I just don't understand...

My tastes are far too eclectic to post examples of....love listening to the harmony of Welsh choirs, pipes and drums for example in addition to numerous other formats and performers. This has a certain pertinence however......

Not only balm for the soul, but a sight to gladden an old man's heart!! How about this?

For me, it would be anything by Pink Floyd. However, one track I found to be calming and almost hypnotic while tramping over deserts and jebels in the Middle East was Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.

Excellent choice - especially this one:

When I said anything by Pink Floyd, I should have added a caveat: Except Atom Heart Mother! Miles away, the daftest album ever put together and, unfortunately probably a legacy of Syd Barrett, the object of the "Shine On" track above. A wasted life!

Right. Now. STOP it !!!!

I haven't got all day to waste listening to this lot. How many more times must I drift a dreamy afternoon away listening to Pink bloody Floyd. And anyway, there is no Ron Obvious to be had.

I'm mostly listening to Pink Floyd at the moment and occasionally David Gilmour's first solo album.

A bit of Candy Dulfer soothes the soul, for me.

For serious listening, Bortniovsky's Hymn of the Cherubim by a Russian Orthodox 'Octavist' choir.
For foot tapping, 'makes you feel better' - Tuba Skinny, particularly their New Orleans street performances - Shaye Cohn 'directing' with her safety boots and the delicious Erika Lewis supplanting Ottilie Patterson in my affections! Brilliant frontline and the Sousaphone, washboard and banjo/guitars are rock-solid support! Lots on Youtube including some recorded concerts - 'Jubilee Stomp' could make you a fan!

So much out there. I'll go along with any Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, The Stones; CJ's choice too. Yesterday listening to my Spotify favorites it came to me that much of it is rather maudlin, REM, Snow Patrol, you can guess the tracks. Hardly cheering in the current times. I set up a fresh list with some foot tapping music: Teenage Kicks; Paranoid and a classic from Mississippi Fred Mc Dowell: Shake Em On Down. But I had to include my all time favorite lump in your throat track (well, for me anyway) it's Elizabeth Schwarzkopf and Jeannine Collard singing that beautiful duet Life is Beautiful or Barcarolle; Schwarzkopf had such a pure voice.
Comfortably Numb has a special resonance with me. A few years ago I had a very close call with sepsis. The lyrics of the second verse:
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what your'e saying...........

My goodness, that was me in hospital, hallucinating and unable to communicate. So whenever I hear that intro, it takes me back.

WARNING - Aviation Content

It's starting to feel like I'm about the only one posting here, if it doesn't pick up in the next 24 hours, I'll give up.

Perhaps some aviation content will inspire some of you to post.
