I'm still a little lost on the whole emotion vs. music thing. Music has always been a puzzle with multiple solutions, or an open source sandbox type deal for me, very little of that "Let me express myself" blabber
Aphex Twin's 4 is one of my top played tracks ever according to my media player, and I absolutely love it, though I still can't think of music as emotional :/
then im afraid your missing out because your lack of perception doesnt mean it doesnt exist. you are looking for emotions from the music, let the music remind you of past emotions you actually can understand, dont expect to learn something you cant comprehend
i would say aphex twin's stone in focus, but there are a few of his tunes that come very close in terms of their effect on my emotions. i pride myself on makin some "emotional" music myself if anyones curious enough to click my soundcloud they can test that
Oh man, this piece gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. It's just so warm and beautiful..
ROYGBIV by Boards of Canada +1
If I was to choose a runner up, like quan7a I'd also have to pick Stone in Focus by Aphex Twin. A pure expression of powerful, unconditional and undying love this track represents to me. The kind of love a mother would have for her son or daughter. I'll never know why this track was only released on the vinyl and cassette versions of SAW-II..

Ok, considering what people posted as the most emotional electronic song i think we all have a different perception of what can be considered emotional. Everyone feels songs as emotional for so deep and personal reasons that overcame the song itself and which can't be shared
