"The War of the Worlds" by Jeff Wayne. Yes, the musical. I think its absolutely brilliant. My favourite track is track 4, or "Forever Autumn" - not just because of the song itself but because of the visuals it seems to evoke.

"Never before in the history of the world had such a mass of human beings moved and suffered together. This was no disciplined march - it was a stampede, without order and without a goal, 6 million people unarmed and unprovisioned driving headlong. It was the beginning of the rout of civilisation. Of the massacre of mankind."

Everything in this track was simply leading up to this statement. Helplessness, panic, disorder. A love narrowly lost but perhaps safe. I love it.
