Sunday Music: Tangerine Dream - Love On A Real Train - State Azure cover



Every once in awhile, the algorithms of YouTube align, and they burp out something new that's genuinely worthy of a look or a listen. This cover of the original Tangerine Dream track from the RiskyBusiness soundtrack in 1983 is one such serendipitous happy accident.

BTW, the guy laying it down filmed himself doing it in real time, which is some prodigiously good synth and dub work. Dude should get the rights to this and release it IRL; it's better than the original, IMHO.

And I'll leave you with visions of the confectionary Rebecca De Mornay in her 1980s prime somewhere in the mists of your consciousness...

Shameless self-promotion (forgive me) but if you like synth-oriented stuff here is my new album - CDs out next week, LPs in May but you can listen to 30 second samples of each track at this link:

You mean only THIRTY years ago back when I'd only be 30 something....

I wore the hell out of that soundtrack on cassette. Definitely mood music. Another good one is Thief soundtrack by Tangerine Dream.

Wow, I thought I was the only person who even knew that Tangerine Dream produced awesome music. My favorite "chill" music from my heady days in college in the early '80s. Great post. Keep 'em coming.

"Sorcerer" soundtrack. Added greatly to the whole eerie,white-knuckled effect of the entire movie.

Dolphin Dance is good.

All of the old Tangerine Dream stuff is good: Force Majeure, Stratosfear, Hyperborea, great stuff. Still enjoying it 30-35 years after I found it.
