Nice... Very soothing
Paige you have to realize that movies are also works of art and date back 1000's of years....of course people will easily relate a song to one. Good music nevertheless .
Tiesto version is better

Makes me very sad that everyone is mentioning Platoon and other movies. It is too bad most only know classical masterpieces such as this from (ugh) movies. To me it's like recognizing the Mona Lisa from a cartoon version.

God worthy sound

This soundtrack was used in The Boondocks
1:say your name

First time I ever heard this was in the black-and-wh i t e film Elephant Man.
Is this from the movie Melancholia? ? ?

Just blows me away everytime... a b s o l u t e l y the best...a rollercoaste r of emotion
Tiesto's remix of adagio for strings is good.
This should be in the ambient dungeons in the older legend of zelda games.
I love to listen to this as my husband make me c*m. Beautiful!
Want to hear a vocal version? It`s from a game called Homeworld. (Sounds better with 720P.) http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = Q P f Y 1 D 3 O 7 C 8

This is the song that was played during the Vetnam war movie " PLATOON" with Charlie Sheen.
Platoon... I never knew who did this awe inspiring song. It really does say something... l i k e a revelation has come and you must embrace it.

@ chewbacca: A more traditional version of this song is featured prevalently in "Platoon".
I've heard this before on a movie, but I can't remember which one. Can anyone tell me!!!!!!!!!

Gawd I cant find this album ANYWHERE! Not on Itunes, not on Amazon, not on Piratebay.or g . gawd
One of my all time fav movie soundtrack songs from Platoon, I believe.
so sad, like a cold winter day when the wind creaks the ice in the branches and a dead bird lays there in the snow
very sad music...very melancholy
Didn't they use this clip in Simone?
We used this piece for our commitment ceremony on Molo'a Beach in Kauai'i. It was lovely! We will cherish this piece forever! Thank you Mr. Orbit for the arrangment!
out of the soundtrack of "homeworld" adagio for strings leave a little scar on my musical taste at childhood,la t e r on ,with the bitterness of the long lost brothers and sisters in arms,fightin g overseas,rea d y for those empty caskets,ever y time it plays we know somebody wont make home tonight,so it keep us united,prayi n g , a n d aware....

On Sept 11th, 2001 I spent the day, traveling around
for my job...of course I was listening to the radio
attentively. . . t r y i n g to decipher what was going
on around us....and this song stands out cleary
as the one played over and over..
I've never seen PLATOON so I associate the tune that way
