Silence is an important element of music that is often used to convey a wide range of feelings and emotions. It can be a refreshing and soothing sound or it can be painful and eerie. There are even songs that deal with death and loss which can be deeply moving.
"Silent Kid" by Pavement is a song that talks about someone who is new to the city and is afraid of talking to strangers. The vocalist urges him to explore his life despite his troubled background.
“Quiet Storm” by Mobb Deep is a song about a person who is quiet but has a lot of potential. The singer believes that everyone can learn from people who are quiet and they will eventually shine in the right situation.
Another song on this list is a song about relationships which are often complicated and if you're in one of them, it can be very helpful to listen to songs that talk about relationships and what goes on behind closed doors. This song can also help you deal with arguments and issues that may arise in your relationship.
A few years after Ian Curtis killed himself in 1980, New Order released Power, Corruption & Lies and Your Silent Face was the first song off its second side. It's an intriguing track that blends deep techno and dystopic electronica.
This track is a great example of how Bernard Sumner's sense of humour and synth melodies can combine to create an unforgettable song. There's a dark mood to this song but it never devolves into too much bleakness.
