My favourite song today is Like Gold

Although it’s not the first time I’ve listened to Vance Joy’s song “Like Gold”, it stands out for me today. I like how the track progresses, and carries you along to the end. I really enjoy it. https://open.spotify.com/track/0IcYIjsfFEOIY1GI4t7dLu?si=zxxy9_6tTgCAoWgUITiWag I found a live performance in Portland, that I also enjoyed: https://youtu.be/6kc9zdW6mYI unsplash-logoFeatured image by Paulette Wooten

This song goes well with the smell of apples and cinnamon

My wife baked an apple crumble for us this cold and rainy afternoon. As the smell of apples and cinnamon filled it apartment, this song, Mountain Air by Cody Francis, was playing on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/track/77qXYSc3ssAzXflU9deLHe?si=3h-3wLOeRi6GdswLTyNPNg As song and smell pairings go, this is a good one! Update: Here’s what that smell was all about: My…

Discovering Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist

It’s a pretty chilly, rainy weekend so we’ve had a pretty laid back weekend at home with our kids. My wife and I re-watched the sci-fi classic, Serenity, for the nth time (still awesome after 13 years). Afterwards, I switched over to some music and, instead of picking a favourite playlist, I opted for the…

Great Spotify playlist to relax and unwind with

I really like this Relax & Unwind playlist on Spotify. Aside for it’s obvious purpose, I like it as a general purpose/background music/atmosphere playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWU0ScTcjJBdj?si=06eVKiWeTra_gyy7rqQ9Zw unsplash-logoFeatured image by Clem Onojeghuo

The Aquaman soundtrack was released today, and I’m enjoying it

The Aquaman soundtrack by Rupert Gregson-Williams was released today, and I just found it on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3QSyYRTsiRM5GORbNrslpc?si=MQGo8kQGQZWqiycg8_20bQ I’ve literally listened to two tracks so far, and it doesn’t seem like it includes the music we heard in the trailer is in the soundtrack. Just the same, just based on “What Could Be Greater Than a…

Danny Elfman’s Batman theme in the Justice League soundtrack

I thought I’d listen to Danny Elfman’s Justice League soundtrack again this morning, and noticed a familiar theme while listening to the track “The Final Battle” at about 1:12: https://open.spotify.com/track/7zoRUjsWHGPKpF9WAlXtzo?si=Qq1AOodkQpq42eXZEjXkJw It’s familiar because Elfman probably drew on his theme from the Michael Keaton Batman movie themes. Listen to this track from Batman, titled “Attack of…

Sweet sounds of This Bitter Earth

I feel like I’m on a bit of a Max Richter journey of discovery the last couple days. My conversation with a couple other music fans prompted me to listen to Richter’s “The Blue Notebooks” album, and it’s terrific. I especially enjoy the sweet sound of “This Bitter Earth / On The Nature Of Daylight”:…

Vivaldi’s Summer 3, spiced up

I’m listening to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (well, a version of it anyway) while I work through exercises in Learn Python 3 the Hard Way, and I really like how Vivaldi’s Summer 3 has been tweaked in the album “Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons”. Here’s a fairly typical rendition of this track: https://open.spotify.com/track/3J2Cif3TIjD1z2DsA51sFm?si=IM2nDgjDS5iKVqUh9rRO2g…
