Before I bugger off for the weekend I have been surveying your brilliant posts, deciphering your comments and enjoying instrumental music in the bkgd.

Remember when instrumentals were on
TOP 40 lists!?
That would never happen in this day and age "blahblah right thurr right thurr blahblahblah!"
Lyric/Vox free or Ambient music allows me to enjoy predominantly nostalgic music but still retain the ability to concentrate on other things.
(I use the term concentrate loosely believe me)

Anyway, have a great weekend everyone.
Here is a partial list of my bkgd music. If you have some faves let me know...I'm always lookin' for good tunes.

Do any of these sound familiar?
(Blogger is not letting moi upload Album cover pics today sigh!)

Classical Gas/ Mason Williams
Outta Space/Billy Preston
Twin Peaks Theme/Angelo Badalamenti
How Dare You/10cc
Follow Your Bliss/B52s
Love is Blue/Paul Mauriat
Wot Gorilla/Genesis
Joy/Apollo 100
Once Upon A Time In The West/Ennio Morricone
Chariots of Fire/Vangelis
Beatbox/Art of Noise
A New Career In A New Town/Bowie
Zaar/Peter Gabriel

Synathaesia(Fly Away)/Thrillseekers
Final Warning/Caribou
Globe Trekker theme/Ian Ritchie


  1. The Globe Trekker theme owns life.

  2. I only recognize B52, Genesis, Ennio, Art of Noise, Bowie, and Gabriel. If you like guitar music you might want to look for something by Joe Satriani. Or maybe some jazz. Here is Oscar Peterson for your entertainment:

  3. Great tune, Sh........
    H.E. I listen to anything that CATCHES my inner ear, STIRS something inside my heart... The rest is just background noise played by aliens...
    Have a good weekend!

  4. “Tequila” by The Champs. 1958. You may have heard it in “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” when Pee-Wee Herman dances atop the biker bar counter. The word “Tequila” is uttered 3 times in the piece so I suppose it’s not strictly instrumental.

    “Walk, Don’t Run” by The Ventures. 1960.

    “Green Onions” by Booker T. & The M.G.’s. 1962.

    Guitarist Duane Eddy had hits with “Rebel Rouser,” “Peter Gunn,” “Shazam” and more.

    Of course Surf music had a lot of instrumentals. Too many to list.

    Stop me before I go on ad nauseum. I’ve got a ton of ‘em.

  5. An' a one, an' a two, an' a...

    that's Lawrence Welk, isn't it?

    All I can think of (that hasn't been mentioned) is Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass...Whipped Cream?

    (I remember the gorgeous girl on the album cover more than the music itself)

  6. Yes, I've done that too. If there's no lyrics, it can elevate the mood without interupting your thoughts. There was even this one style of classical music I used to get over an NPR station - I'm an ignoramus on the topic, unfortunately I have no idea what I was listening to. But it was bright and light - lots of horns, a little harpsechord, not the crashing or overly quiet stuff.

    You can tell I'm a good one to consult about this genre...

  7. HomoEscapeons: Could you email me please? I can't find an email address in your Blogger Profile.
