Got a jab or two. Jab jab jab. Playlist details appear below; The Spotify version is an approximation.

I created a Year 2021 Musical Sampler that mysteriously does not contain any music from the year 2021. It is a mixed bag of what got stuck in me craw during the year and seemed to fit well together, somewhat. I will perhaps write up a small lazy thing in the hand-waving future about the “Give the gift of music” sticker phenom. I don’t know anything about “The Nice Price” sticker and I’m sure there’s a similarly inane legacy behind it; reluctant research beckons.

Stone Poneys / Linda Ronstadt “Different Drum” (1967).

Starbuck “Moonlight Feels Right” (1975).

In my mind I have written a teen lost summer movie script written from the vantage point of the adults who have to deal with their garbage. “Hey you dirty teens, knock that shit off!” [FX: hoses teens off] This song of course is the killer track everyone’s forgotten about that burns out its welcome before the trailer ends.

Tangerine Dream / Woody Jackson / The Alchemist / Oh No / DJ Shadow “We Were Set Up” (Flying Helicopter/Plane Theme: Grand Theft Auto V 2013).

The actual much-more-mellower version used when flying has been extracted here (it’s all about the creamy center starting at around 2:30).

Bill Nelson “Transmission” (1984).

Buddy Rich “Machine” (1977 or 1978).

You know, from the Saul Bass Star Wars opening. Actually, it’s a different version. The one you hear in the video seems to be tighter and TIGHTER.

The Jazz Butcher “Partytime” (1983).

RIP Pat Fish.

Hans Zimmer “Dream Is Collapsing” (2010).

Gordon Lightfoot “Sundown” (1974).

Cover art unholy marriage between George Peurbach’s New Theory of The Planets (1474; 1, 2) and a crate label for Red Circle oranges (~1938). A thumbnail of Peurbach’s drawing right next to a thumbnail of Red Circle oranges in my "future-whatever” directory. That’s how it starts. Spend almost three hours looking for good images of the damn pointless stickers that were on every record in the go-go 80s. Fifteen minutes in Intense Graphical Editing Program, mostly dealing with the stickers. Then, forget to set the background to black-black so your Intense Graphical Editing Program leaves it at printing-black, which is a little lighter; like how that sets it off w/full-black backgrounds. “Done.”
