Never Young Again  performed by Mirwais  2000
Composed by Mirwais

A good chunk of knob-twiddling electro-dance layered over a beautifully atmospheric string backing.

From the originator of Madonna's "Paradise" which is also included on the album.

from Production, available on CD


As You Are  performed by Travis  1999

Hardly the first successful song to take its musical inspiration from a Beatles number. I would choose to listen to it over "Across the Universe" almost every time.

from The Man Who, available on CD


Hammer in the sand  performed by Steve Hackett  1980
Composed by Hackett

A beautiful piano-led instrumental, mainly gentle in mood, and an affecting vehicle for the distinctive harmononies and layered textures that characterise Steve's work.

from Defector, available on CD (Charisma)


Space Oddity  performed by David Bowie  1969
Composed by Bowie

As we all know, it has that typical late 60s "rock group with string section added on" sound. I recommend it here mainly because I *love* the change in mood and minor tonality that comes with line "Ground control to Major Tom, your circuit's dead - There's something wrong" which comes after "Tell my wife I love her very much - she knows". The diminished 7th chord under the words "Major Tom" is, well, sublime.

The song was produced by Gus Dudgeon who went on to produce most of Elton John's classic material, and features Rick Wakeman amongst several subsequently famous session musicians. The Wikipedia articles on the track and the album it came from are interesting, well-written, and seem well-researched (unless anyone wants to disagree).

from Space Oddity (Philips)
available on CD - lots (EMI)


Slow Blues  performed by Duke Ellington  1966
Composed by Ellington

Just a great slow blues. Ellington - what a pianist! 1966 - what a great year!

from Duke Ellington - The Pianist, available on CD ()
