The majestic opening to the Trailer Park album, the haunting voice and the eerie ominous strings, plus a nice dancy beat.
Don't Ever Let Me Know - Bobby Fuller Four
Super catchy pop song bliss. Tambourines and hand claps, six against four, catchy melodies. Nice.
Intermezzo, Op. 118, No. 2 by Johannes Brahms played by Artur Rubinstein
Sure, it's a old piano chestnut, but for good reason, though.
Erotico (The Burglars) from The Big Gundown - John Zorn plays the Music of Ennio Morricone
Bill Frisell on guitar, Big John Patton on organ, Bobby Previte on drums and Laura Biscotto on "sexy Italian vocals". A not terribly subtle, but grooving presentation of the title concept. I don't know the original context for the music, and, given my limited knowledge of '70s Italian cinema, I'm not sure I want to.
Common People - Pulp
Great song about condescending hipster slumming. Will make you self-conscious about where you fit in this song. Usually reminds me of the Woody Allen quote "Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons."
