    The Corrs

    Another music group that has great violins (or fiddles, same difference) is called the Corrs. These are four musicians; one brother and three sisters. The sisters are absolutely gorgeous, and have voices like you would imagine angels to have. I have three of their CD's so far...

    Not the state, the old rock and roll group. I bought a greatest hits CD of theirs a while back and was listening to it on the way to work, then back on the way home. I forgot how many really good songs they have, and how much they depended on the use of violins in their music...

    Let's say, I have nothing much against violins, I may even appreciate them sometimes when I have a hangover in some piece of let's say Mozart, yes. But I hope that you don't mind that I prefer the violin to be somewhat discreet when it comes to rock. If they know their place...

    I love violin use in rock, or any other type of music for that matter. Most of the songs that I consider to be my favorites tend to have violins playing in the background or in the opening. It's just so classic and sexy.

    Build God, Then We'Ll Talk - Panic! At The Disco.

    It's a cello. The bittersweet cello solo. The song itself is pretty much a rampant high but that solo mellows it all out. You lose control in the high, at first it's all noise, uncontrollable mess and insanity. Just an endless, soul-ripping scream. The cello brings the expression...

    Probably Has Been Said A Million Times

    "Broken" by Seether with Amy Lee.  I somehow just discovered this song even though it has been out for 6 years!    I'm sure there are far superior songs but this song resonates with me in so many ways...

    Violins Are Beautiful

    I was just telling someone today how I think violins go really well in rock music. We had been listening to Andrea Bocelli, and I remembered how very emotional and intense the violin sounds, perfect for rock music. If only bands used violins more.

    Metallica S & M

    The Metallica DVD that has them playing with the San Francisco Symphony changed the way I looked at string instruments and rock music forever! That is one of the best DVD's I ever watched!

    Even in the heaviest of the hardcore rock songs, violins (and pianos) seem to add a bit of elagance and beauty to the song. I love songs that have this. Bands such as Apocalyptica have this down to an art :)
