Sent me down so many rabbit holes there. :-D We listened to the whole playlist of Radiodread's OK Computer cover, which was surprisingly amazing. I wouldn't have thought those tracks would crossover to reggae at all.

Thanks for the introduction to Yellow Magic Orchestra ~ love it! Daft Punk are clearly a degree of creative iteration on sounds of the YMO era.

In turn, maybe YMO took some influence from jazz fusion of the era:

I love that dated digital sound:

Thanks for posting some tracks.  I hadn't heard too much of Yellow Magic Orchestra, and love what you posted above.  And Chick Corea is such a great talent.  That's some good jazz.  Here's another Return to Forever / Chick Corea tune that I'm particularly fond of (from an album that reminds me of early King Crimson):


Radiodread is really cool, and I was surprised at first as well.  They also do the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  This is my favorite from the Beatles album (mostly because of what's different):


I'd check out Lovely Rita as well, if you have a chance.  They also have a full album cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon that matches the tempo all the way through so that you can do the Dark Side of Oz synchronicity with their album as the soundtrack.

And here are some tracks I was listening to as I composed this response:

You're Dead by Norma Tanega (heard this in What We Do in the Shadows)


H34T RISES by Nilüfer Yanya


808 State of Mind by Honey Dijon (featuring Shaun J Wright and Alinka)



Catching up on tracks from this thread with some lovely IPA's. ;) Dact, thanks for the intros. Honey Dijon reminds me of that unmistakable 90's New Age style, like Deep Forest, Enigma, etc, 2000-era dot com nerds all the way! (laugh)





How about some surf rock (yes, THAT Pulp Fiction track (laugh) love it!):

The funkiest track of Pet Shop Boys since now. They're getting old but still clubbin'.

So today I learned Dusty Springfield is actually not American, but British...but born to Irish parents, of which her father was born in British India. #themoreyouknow

Hah, I understand the connection: Badalamenti conducted the orchestra in some PSB's song during the EMI years! Strange thing their actual producer Stuart Price don't provide them at least a string section...

Now about soundtrack here's a classic:

I never played this game but the song got stuck in my head. Not because it's any good. It just did.

Frighter, cool track. I hear echoes of it in some of Sting's stuff, i.e. the outro session here from 4 minutes onwards:

The real hero of tracks like these is the drummer. How in hell can they keep a double kick going that long?! (laugh)
