While playing an iron-man, forced descent, priest it was Dio, "Holy Diver". Not recent, I know. but Hugo would appreciate it.

Edit: Here is the music video: https://www.last.fm/music/Dio/_/Holy+Diver

Just listened to it in the first time forever, on a streaming service. I remembered the drum and guitar solos, but I totally forgot the pipe organ solo. For those who don't know what we're talking about:

Highly influential in heavy metal, all 17+ minutes. (1968)

Currently listening to an old favorite: Devotchka, Mad and Faithful Telling. They really do a great job with horn and accordion. Who'd a thunk it? (Never mind all the other awesome instruments--14, among 4 people.)

Googled her, listened to "The Fine Art of Poisoning" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3uJEiDETKE and it is good...but mostly it made me want to listen to Tom Waits - Little Drop of Poison - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkj_ov_0LA4

... been a while since that post, but since you mentioned AvB, I think you might want to try to find the Above & Beyond Essential Mixes from 2005 and 2011. They were just an amazing demonstration of what musicality can be and what Trance can be. Above & Beyond are basically AvB in "capsule" form. These two 2h mixes are -- in a word -- amazing. (If anyone wants to hear it, feel free to PM me for details, etc.)

(Of course, Armin van Buuren is kind of a hero of mine -- he's done absolutely amazing things. Nevermind the whole "A State of Trance" programmes. Btw, for me, that's right up there with the absurdly good Astral Projection Remix of God Is A DJ.)
