Tangerine Dream – Love On A Real Train (Risky Business)

It's going to be a very quick, and some what lazy post from me tonight, as I'm literally exhausted, it's been a busy few weeks and this weekend was the first down time I'd had in a while – except it ended up being a bloody busy weekend. Amongst all the madness though, I've been catching up on a lot of TV programs of late, and one of the best I've watched is Mr Robot. 

 

I know, this is a music blog not a TV blog, but I've got to say it's not often i'm so taken with the music of a miniseries, firmly rooted in the 80's every episode has had a stand out musical moment that's made me sit up muttering "hot damn! I love this track" to myself.

 

As a result I've been listening to a lot of 80's based Electronica Com Truise, Elliot Lipp and the likes but the obvious track I keep coming back to again and again is "Love on a real train" by Tangerine Dream.

 

It is, as we all should know, and absolute chestnut of a track, and I probably have no right posting such a huge chunk of childhood memory. I could wax on lyrical about it and explain how the layered arps and many counter melodies make my emotions soar. I could talk about how I always preferred Tangerine Dream to Kraftwerk (more soul for me) but in reality one of the biggest reasons i love this track is it reminds me of the first time I watched Risky Business, I was probably about 13/14. It's not the greatest movie ever but it was fun, and it was easy and it was what rainy school holidays were made for.

 

It's a great tune, so i'm leaving the post there and heading off to bed. Bonne soirée Elliott.
