Narco Montenot  performed by Stereolab  1994
Composed by Gane-Sadier

Very possibly the 'Lab's most beautiful song. Sounds vaguely barouque beneath all those layers of floating voices & technological acumen. The whole thing races by at a dirge's pace, constantly hinting that it's about to be set loose into a frenzy, but always kept reined in. Appeared as a b-side on the "Wow & Flutter" single.

from Wow & Flutter (EP), available on CD (Duophonic)



Honey  performed by Puffy  1998

One of Puffy's Andy Sturmer productions, this track brings to mind things such as ABBA's "Fernando" with it's faux-Andalusian flavor...but those loopy sound effects and the theater organ solo just scream out Tokyo!

from Jet CD (Sony Japan)
available on CD - The Best of Puffy: Amiyumi Jet Fever (Sony Japan)



The Most Important Man Alive  performed by Momus  1997
Composed by Momus

This accursed short attention span of mine makes it nearly impposible for me to pay attention to lyrics. But Momus has a definite savoir-faire that just keeps me riveted. Nick Currie does his usual sardonic "thang" on this acoustic-guitar-and-sequencer ballad about just how great Howard DeSoto is. "I am/quite simply/the most important man alive." Makes me want to go to Montparnasse, too. Only available on Bungalow's "Suite: 98" compilation.

from Suite: 98, available on CD (Bungalow)



11 Uhr 20 (Main Theme)  performed by Peter Thomas  1970

The Teutonic funky drummer? Herr Thomas and his inimitable Sound Orchester turn in this terrific theme song to some long-lost detective show from German television. Shows that Thomas was as great a tv/film composer as Schifrin, Mancini, Barry, Budd or Jones.


available on CD - Moonflowers & Mini-Skirts (Marina)




  06 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: That's another WILD track recommended by 'tinks'. I'm SPINNING!
Good!  performed by Pizzicato Five  1995
Composed by Chica-Hajime

This is my favorite song on what is currently my favorite P5 album. Three-and-a-half minutes of unadulterated Shibuya joy. I'd love to know what Konishi-san's secret to putting songs like this together is, but then I guess it'd spoil the magic. And check the brilliant lyrics! "Have a nice day, the same to you/What time baby? 9 o'clock/Gonna have a good time?/I miss you/How do you think about it?/I don't know!"

from The Sound of Music by Pizzicato Five, available on CD
