Hey! I can see my house from here!!!
Well, I guess I have no choice but to love that one...
Miami Vice Theme Song Band plays Enya
:sleep:
Is this in a TV commercial or something? It sounds kinda familiar in short bursts.

Thanks a lot for that image.
Someday dancers with wings will be performing to this song in a space station arena.

I was expecting to hear Planet P's "Why Me" after the first few seconds. This reminds me of the music that my massage therapist would play during sessions. The piano especially. This piece is like a odd collision of Floyd, Enigma, and dozens of New Age instrumentals.
Whoa! I think I just saw God, man. No. Wait.... Sorry. It was just a water stain on the wall.

Okay, what's up here? It's april 22nd, and once again this song is a segue from Miles Davis. Anyway. First thoughts were also 'Pink Floyd cover'. Something from The Wall. But it's a good track all on its own. Regardless of what ever else it may sound like.
It is June 5th and it occurred again. No one blames Bill for using excellent sequences more than once. So expect an occasional De Ja Vu transition.

Agreed, and a nice segue from Miles Davis it is.

This needs some visuals;
Just like the white winged dove... Sings a song... Sounds like she's singing... Whoo... whoo... whoo... Just like the white winged dove... Sings a song... Sounds like she's singing... Ooo baby... ooo... said ooo
Kinda liked that...space music with a twist.

it's okay, but it belongs in Brookstone more than on a radio station. How about some Tristeza, Album Leaf, or Aphex Twin?
Ya know, anytime someone says something "belongs" somewhere, it smacks of judgement and closed-mindedness. Not very Buddha-like.
I love that kind of atmospheric tracks!!
I gave it an 8 because it resembles APP and I have a weak spot for them!
Burning Man, Burning Man :fire: :fire:

"Daddy's flown across the ocean...." whoa - where did that piano come from?
This track needs some serious guitars to make it survive deep space. I downgraded it from 4 to 3. It's going nowhere.
i thought it was patrick o'hearn until i checked my task bar. not bad for new age, space music
Opens just like DJ Shadow's Entroducing Too bad you can never hear that on RP...

Very nice for a rainy day (Jeanne) - though I would have mixed this one right after PF's "Great Gig in the Sky" and skipped the Miles Davis in this set. Does anyone else hear Alan Parsons?
Alan Parsons, yes, very much so. And from the same era & atmosphere Jean Michel Jarre. Must give away my age :-) I also would have passed on Miles. I want to like this type of Jazz but just don't.
i think my face has gone numb... :yawn:
It sounds like a telefilm music :yawn: .

A little Michael Brook-ish. Echoed guitar like on "Run Like Hell" and "Eye of the Tiger."
cool opening... the rest seems kind of just eh, so far.

I thought Floyd too, but another brick in the wall, not welcome to the machine (with the intro).
I agree, but Pink Foyd is much better 8)

It just stepped into Thomas Dolby... Nifty. " ...into the Gulf of Mexico..."

Sounds like the BGM in some "corporate progress" video that they run in their lobbies and stuff. "We've reduced emissions by half since 1990, resulting in only 2 billion tons of discharged particulate per year. By 2099 we plan to halve that number again!"

And now I am reminded that I'll soon be smelling the creosote smell of pre-dawn and it's time to put the writing away and go to bed. Nice thing to have in my head as I wind down. :sleep: :sleep:

i thought of Robert Miles immediately as well. this song screams Children. btw, has anyone heard the Robert Miles/Darude mix Children of the Sandstorm? wow, that's a cool tune.

I miss hearing "Hearts of Space" as well. It may still even be on in my area, but it has been relegated to Sunday very late night. I must be getting old, I prefer sleeping over music. anyway the_Jake likes this one!

This is play music if I've ever heard it. I likes!

This is a cool instrumental. But at the start, I thought sure it was someone covering Depeche Mode's "Strangelove". Same piano notes.
Too much extasy bro....Not a single note...this stuff is totally empty... beat box and wondering fingers

Darn, Boosiewolf, you beat me to it. :) I'm still waiting for Dave Gahan's voice to start in like a bullhorn.

This is all right I guess...but sounds a bit too much like... like ...and like ... stuff borrowed left and right put together. Not the most original piece of music.

My thoughts while listening to this were like Pink Floyd meets Depeche Mode meets BT . . . I don't know but it held my interest. I really liked this and I found this out and like the artist even more . . . In an amazing display of dedication to the music John Stanford offers his songs free on his website.
