Instrumentals can sound better than the original track
One of my favorite instances of this is Wagner.





(yes, i know that the siegfried idyll never had words, just trying to show how beautiful weird transcriptions of wagner can be.)

Don't get me wrong, I love opera, and I understand why Wagner wanted to principally compose operas, seeing them as a 'total art' that combined all the arts into one. But, as a composer, his greatest strength lay in his subtle harmonies and perpetual building of tension, with only partial releases (famously, the opening chord progression of Tristan und Isolde isn't resolved until the very end of the opera). And, IMHO, all the singing and acting and scenery and story mostly distract from the beauty of the pure music.

Listening to Wagner's works as instrumentals also helps dispel the silly notion that he was a bombastic, thud-and-blunder, "heavy metal" composer.

Sunscreen with less than 30 SPF is a waste of money. Don't be surprised when you get a skin condition if you either never wear sunscreen, don't wait after putting it on for it to bind to your skin, or you wear 15 or less SPF.
