Song of the Merced River

In my own mind, this is the river in "Brokedown Palace". Fare you well, fare you well!

There's A New Sound

There's A New Sound

by Tony Burrello

When Dad put this on it had the same effect as when he pulled quarters out of our ears. At some level it altered my nascent sense of reality and changed my life. Deep.

Marshmellow Children

Marshmellow Children

This was on a punk comp, maybe to scare the hardcore kids out of their "groove" a little bit.

Music Is Happiness

Music Is Happiness

by The Octopus Project

I have to post my mission statement song before it's too late. Coincidentally it really does have a theremin.

Beethoven. "Moonlight" Sonata: I. Adagio sostenuto

Beethoven. "Moonlight" Sonata: I. Adagio sostenuto

by Rudolf Serkin

Even if you've heard the piece a hundred times, it's worth hearing Serkin play it if you haven't already. He recorded a bunch of versions on different pianos, but I think this "6:31" (how I keep track, by timings) could be my fave.

Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Another favorite "theremin" tune until I recently found out more about Mr. Fisher. It's a violin, wow!

Fear (One Step Beyond)

Fear (One Step Beyond)

by Harry Lubin Orchestra

A favorite "theremin" tune even though it's reportedly a trautonium. This was also going to be my counterargument to @slaymonstrobot's best TV theme but on weighing the two I think Mission Impossible wins after all.

Laser Runner

I wish they would release even more music and visit my area more often with more advance notice. But they're probably busy maintaining their secret identities somewhere.

Rodrigo Martinez

Male Fan Dance (Kumi, Verata, Tailevu, Viti Levu)

Male Fan Dance (Kumi, Verata, Tailevu, Viti Levu)

by Unspecified

A song from a beloved album in my dad's old collection, http://www.discogs.com/David-Fanshawe-South-Pacific-Island-Music/release/3325831 . When I discovered it had made the migration to net streaming along with everything else, I actually shed tears of happiness because I could hear it all again. Highly recommended disc-as you can hear it's not just #Tahitian choir although that's on there too.

Dark Star

Dark Star

by Grateful Dead

The canonical version of the canonical work by this band was played at the Fillmore on 2/27/69 and released on Live/Dead. This particular performance is like chamber music. If my husband and I had to pick "our song", Dark Star in any version would probably be it. So this will be my Eternal Jam. (This streamable track from a fan-traded tape is unfortunately tracked without the intro; you can hear the whole tape at https://archive.org/details/gd69-02-27.sbd.16track.kaplan.6315.sbeok.shnf )
