Best ever chill out song
« on: October 03, 2020, 02:04:08 am »
The world has gone a bit overly mad recently, and doesn't seem to be getting any better.  Our department has now been put on redundancy consultation and restructure, which is something to look forward to.  So I was wondering, in the interest of chilling out in times that aren't necessarily what one wants, and which currently affects many thousands of people, what are the nice blood pressure reducing songs?  I'll start with the following, and as ever thoughts and contributions welcome.

Not necessarily a favourite but a recent discovery thanks to Adam Curtis

For some serious chilling music, there's always The Orb, and for a caving link our very own Pwhole did the cover art for UF Orb!

Dirty old mines need love too....

Well - what can I say? It's true.

Though I do like The Orb, I prefer this 'tribute to Duke Ellington' in the 30-minute range (amazing they squeezed it onto one side of vinyl) - fabulous chill-out music, with lots of shagging potential as an added bonus. Tried and tested ;)

If you want something nice and peaceful to relax to, try Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Memories of the Alhambra) a classical guitar piece composed in Granada by Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega.

Of Tarrega works, I think that I prefer “Capricho Arabe” but for music to stir me outside the Elgar Cello Concerto then it has to be a throw of the coin between Ishbel MacAskill    and  “The King” in its many forms  so  Mediterrean-shambolic  and almost but not quite Semana Santa.
But still it's the Elgar Cello Concerto with J. Du Pre.

Hi Rob, thanks for posting that – I'd never heard of Capricho Arabe, a lovely piece of music. The Elgar Concerto is also beautiful.
But I was a bit bemused when you talked about 'music to stir one'; I thought that this was supposed to be 'music to calm one'!

Anyway, if you want music to stir you, try Berlioz's take on the Marseillaise – the most glorious racket masquerading as music that I've ever come across.
