We had to reach back into the early 80s to pull out this European playgroundish sounding song. It features an insistent bouncy melody and a helpful older robot that chases it around the playground as the music unfolds. Would have made a nice child activity time tune for all the unborn mutants of the 80s.

For a long time I thought I was unusual in that I feared sitting and waiting at the airport for my flight much more terrifying then the flight itself. Many times I could feel myself devolving into an eternal time loop of infinite torture, where I could be going anywhere but instead I am going nowhere. This music track provides the perfect tension to accompany this sort of personal abysmal existential thought process.
Been awhile since I found a straight ahead melodic female fronted rock song. I heard this one in the middle of the night and it totally "hit the spot" of that part of my musical palette that had been starved for too long. It helps that she is from Scotland, one of my favorite countries for music makers.
Has there ever been such a magnificent musical piece written on the topic of the anti-christ? I think not. This song still gives me goosebumps on two levels, one in fear of that evil boy and the other level is the sheer power and depth of this composition. Thanks Mr. Goldsmith for your contributions to cinematic scores throughout your lifetime.

This one comes at the advice from my ghost contributor, Roku. It is not just a single track folks, it is an entire album of travels in psychedelic ear country! Kick back, relax and enjoy this album with your cocktail in hand says Roku.
The temporary streaky escape from New York has ended as I have now heard yet another fantastic artist from the big city. This track feature lush colliding chords that wash up a talented unique vocalist. What more do you need as the weekend fades away?

I know it is a commercial, but it so expertly put together and honors the track of "Just What I Needed" by the Cars in such a way, that I owed it to the readers of this blog to share it. It actually gave me that special tingle when the song fully kicks in. Google Fiber, coming to your town soon!
