More of that which is forgotten, but not lost...



Note: This last track chops off abruptly, apparently a transcription glitch.

One of those rare cover versions that may be slightly better than the original...

Another classic... Land of Sand...


Also "Dune 2" was the first RTS I played as a teenager.

I used to think that I was special, that I was a music lover. But over time, communicating with other people, I realized that I am the same as many others. That my tastes are multifaceted. I love classics, but I also love post-hardcore. I love techno, but I also love rap. And each music belongs to a different activity. On a run, I can listen to Eminem and Drake. While working on my lawn (I live with my parents and my main task is to cut the lawn and change the lawn mower blades) I can listen to ARTBAT and Fatboy Slim. Sitting on the porch of my house and drinking beer, I can listen to Tchaikovsky. And I realized that this is normal for me.

Do you have the same tastes or do you only listen to one kind of music?

But right now I'm listening to Fatboy Slim in Brighton (I think it is the best set)

One of the best game soundtracks ever IMHO (yeah, I love blues). Real acoustic stuff, they hired musicians from Saint-Louis. Very authentic, you can even hear the breathing when they start a guitar riff (real blues players sing what they play, in their head when its instrumental). Also I like the idea of "industrial-themed blues", a tribute to the sweat and hard work of people that laid train tracks with their bare hands, for very little money.


My favorite, that was added as a "bonus track" (very cool "walking bass" line, seems to live its life while staying on tone) :

Yeah, if you travel a bit further from that one, you can find this one, its my (widely feared*) smartphone ringtone actually for some years:


Not for a game, but for a (great) documentary, and a really recognizable guitar riff.

* Before Corona, it used to freak out my coworkers, when I got a call. Just imagine a silent office with all focussed on coding and suddenly this intro...

Something I didn't notice because of all the Rona: John Williams fulfilled his long wish of conducting the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in January 2020... and the result is epic.

This performance here is really lightyears away from the original soundtrack, alone the dynamics in this one....


And who doesn't feel 30 years younger when the strings start to play?
