    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...

    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...

    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.

    The sounds of violins always hightens my mood and my senses. As for violins in rock musik, I ******* love it. I must say it is musik that rather pleases me in every mood, must it be while I am showering, doing chores, art work, or even sexual things. Folk metal baby!!! ;P

    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 :)

    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.

    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...

    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...
