I once downloaded the incidental music from ABC World News Tonight in 1978, and listened to that for hours. The song is only a minute long, too. It kind of reminded me of Goblin, but more exciting!

Stop Non-Erotic Cabaret (Abbbottt), Sunday, 5 December 2010 01:43 (5 years ago) Permalink

these tracks either seem to have insistent/thudding/motorik/etc recurring motifs or just a key change/chorus/half-second of sublimity

This got a lot of repeat play, too, when I found it for download. "Heavy Action" aka the Monday Night Football theme. ABC is good with the thrilling instrumental themes!

This is also a JAM – I found a clip of a girls' school orchestra playing it once:

The first time I heard Madrugada Eterna (the first time I heard anything off Chill-Out), I listened to it like 8 times in a row (and it's an 8+ minute song)

Polmo Polpo's Kiss Me Again and Again, I listened to for like an hour and a half when I first heard it. It's absolutely brilliant.

def

all the trax I mentioned have moments - timbres, melodies or shifts - that tend towards the indescribable - maybe if they're ever fully worked-out they'll lose their magic

Cap.Obv (acoleuthic), Sunday, 5 December 2010 01:49 (5 years ago) Permalink

Actually, I got the madrugada Eterna stats wrong, It's 6 minutes, but I think I listened to it 13 or so times.

EDB, Sunday, 5 December 2010 01:49 (5 years ago) Permalink

I alternated the slow version of "Hello It's Me" by the Nazz and the faster Something/Anything? version by Rundgren solo for a couple of hours once this year.

pretty sure hearing any song more than twice in the space of an hour would make me start to hate it

loved both versions more and more as they played on -- the only reason I stopped was I had to leave the house for an appointment.

Been going on about this in the instrumental jazz-pop thread, but it really is fantastic. The instrumentation behind Herb's trumpet is brilliantly subdued melancholy.
