More for the sake of making people discovering the instrument than anything, lend your ear to the Armenian duduk, a breathy flute that has amazing mournful notes.
The first track could be sad, healing, or good with magic... The second to me brings more of an arabian night feel, but I really love the instrument :

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5tcbD5in7k" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5tcbD5in7k</a>

And a literary aside... This guy tried something really cool. We don't know exactly how to pronounce ancient sumerian, but with what we have of it, and using an instrument of the day, this dude things the beginning of the most ancient piece of literature known to man, The Epic of Gilgamesh.
It always sends shivers down my spine when I hear him begin. I mean, it's as close as we get to hear the work of one of ours, writing FOUR THOUSAND YEARS AGO.

The dude specialises in reconstructing ancient historically correct instruments of all civilisations. Interesting for the curious.

Just check out the mad playing of this old greek instrument, early electric guitar feel, 3000 years early.

Being an ex-musician, I really enjoyed all of that, @Nora! Of course, it helps that I already dig on that kind of music, too. Thanks for posting those ;D!

Here's an instrument I had no idea existed until I happened to see/hear it in action at my local mall: The marimba. I think it has quite a nice sound.

Also, here's an Icelandic rendition of Moonlight Shadow:

Cool music if you like synth/electronic, and enjoy action movie music.

This track is one of my favourite in John Wick :

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_3sdIEhkNA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_3sdIEhkNA</a>

Spoiler for Hiden:
The scene in itself was epic. He was chasing his russian target in the underground sauna of this big club, and follows him up to the dancefloor. Great editing went into that. (many, not too graphic headshots, best way is to watch from 2min to 4min)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-HSoOFdJ3s" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-HSoOFdJ3s</a>

Much more synth now, this is from the movie Drive :

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV_3Dpw-BRY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV_3Dpw-BRY</a>

This one has great music but also won a 2015 award for best dance video

#Invalid YouTube Link#

A superbly absurd song. Apparently it's featured in the second season of Mr.Robot, but I haven't watched it.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBhDaVg1E6Y" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBhDaVg1E6Y</a>

Finally, on the theme of corpses, ghosts... Awesome video to watch with the audio :

A very interesting video. Half piece of art, half documentary. French and native african spoken, but english embedded subtitles.

It's a fascinating video, all about natural rhythms that inspire music. Really worth the watch.

I want to take the title thread quite literally here.

There's an upcoming multiplayer video game based on the Friday the 13th series, where one players controls Jason Voorhees, and the other players are campers trying to survive the night. The band Crazy Lixx wrote an original song for the game, and it feels just perfectly 80's. Here's a video, with some footage of Mr. Voorhees going about his business.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6G5KyAcuFk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6G5KyAcuFk</a>

Also, let's have some Alice Cooper.
