Say what you want about Green Day, I grew up on them. This song in particular holds a special place in my heart because back in 2011, My grandmother's breast cancer, which was in remission for 40 years until that point, had come back with a vengeance. Around the fall season, like the start of october, she had gone into a coma as the varying side effects of the cancer worsened her condition. When I got home from school early one day, I went to see her and I swore I never cried as much as I did in that moment. After we left the hospital, this song started playing over the radio and it really struck a nerve with me. A day later, she died and it was heartbreaking for me. I'll always remember those days whenever I hear this song play. God, I miss my grandmother so fucking much.

read the thread and saw some aphex twin feels, but no autechre feels

Flutter is famous for being a legitimate protest song against a UK parliament passed act:

The R-8 isn’t held up on the same pedestal as the 808 or 909, but it’s far more advanced, featuring velocity-sensitive pads for jamming out more natural rhythms and the ability to sequence external gear via MIDI. It was this latter feature that Autechre made the most of, most notably on ‘Flutter’, the duo’s musical riposte to the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, which outlawed unauthorised outdoor raves involving “repetitive beats”.

“Flutter has been programmed in such a way that no bars contain identical beats and can therefore be played under the proposed new law,” it said on the record sleeve. However, we advise DJs to have a lawyer and a musicologist present at all times to confirm the non-repetitive nature of the music in the event of police harassment.” According to Booth, it was all programmed using the R-8’s pads, which triggered a sampler to create melodies and an Alesis QuadraVerb for delay and reverb.

The album that this piece comes from, Visual, demands to be played on a high-end system. The music sounds very banal if listened on ordinary gear; the delicate sound textures only reveal themselves in highly resolving equipment.

Whenever I listen to this song, It reminds me of the pain I feel when remembering those close to me that are now long gone. The feels... live within this song.

Beyond the feelings I get from the nostalgia from these songs, there's something special in how this extremely small band in the U.K. meant so much to me when I was younger.

"He suddenly realizes, realizes that a lot of people probably want the same things he does, a great job, a beautiful wife, happiness, and even if you're lucky enough to get even some of it, it only takes a moment and it can all be taken away from you." - Felix Massie

Every time this pops up on the radio, I always think of my mom (also named the same). Not bad for a Monkee...

Someone posted a clip from the final minutes of a Sopranos episode on a /tv/ thread a couple of days ago, and whilst I never watched the show seeing that clip elevated me from "mildly interested" to seriously wanting to watch all of it. Especially because of this absolutely beautiful song that is playing through it:

Michael Buble has a more recent cover. But her voice and the simplicity of this song gets me every time.
The performance of that song is even more poignant because it was the final episode ever of the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour...the continuation of I Love Lucy a show that was started to help their marriage and bring them closer.
The very next day after this Lucille Ball started divorce proceedings against Desi Arnaz.
