The February Mix

Here's my mix CD for this month:

1. Morgenspaziergang, Kraftwerk
2. Praeludium und Fuga, a moll, Georg Böhm
3. Growing Up, Peter Gabriel
4. Baker Street, Foo Fighters (covering Gerry Rafferty)
5. 2112 Overture, The Vitamin String Quartet (covering Rush)
6. Prelude and Fugue in D Major (BWV 532), J.S. Bach
7. Flesh for Fantasy, Billy Idol
8. Darkness, Peter Gabriel
9. Magic Power, Triumph
10. The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys, Traffic

(Ten Songs, 1 hour, 68.5MB)

This is one of the more eclectic mixes to fall out of my music library. It makes a good driving mix. I have to say that Bach's D Major Fugue here is one of the happiest pieces of music in the organ literature. The recording I have is Helmut Walcha's, a nicely articulated and beautifully registered version: maybe not historically "authentic" enough for some prissy scholars, but eminently listenable.

If I weren't such a lazy blogger, I'd provide links to Amazon or iTunes, but you can use a search engine as easily as I.


Here's a video of a stunningly fast rendition of BWV 532:
