Funny how music can act as a little trigger. Usually I’ll listen to radio 2 to set up You Bastard on Sat (if L isn’t taking a turn). No issue with Ken Bruce but I prefer something a little less 60’s Love Songs (Although the trippy title music on Britannia is fun) R2 gets the other 3 days a week, I do my treatments. Theres really no explanation of why I should name medical equipment after a fictional mathematical genius who happens to be a camel, but.. Just BECAUSE…:)
So Smooth Chill is my chosen audio trip on most Sat mornings.
Turn it on, out of the phone streams a song I haven’t heard for a while. Way back in the 80’s, ancient history for todays nippers) a mate introduced me to Air (he was French) and they played a major chill out, love music and got used a lot in advertising, outdoor events etc that I used to go to.
All I need is a little time
To get behind this sun and cast my weight
All I need is a peace of this mind
Then I can celebrate
Air got me through many many stressful nights, and days, full albums on my first MP3 player (which I still have) and a decent set of headphones for some serious trance like chill out on the stereo in my bedroom (Which don’t have)
Incidentally Air also wrote the soundtrack for and music for the dark love romance Virgin Suicides,

And some quotes from the film during s scene of passion.
“The word ‘Hurricane’ is the name given to nature’s strongest storm.
A hurricane occurs when high pressure and low pressure masses of air come in contact with one another.
There is often a significant difference in temperature between the two masses.
One mass is warm, while the other is cold.
The warmer air rises, and the cooler air falls.
Likewise, the low pressure area slides down the sides of the high pressure area.
They swirl in and around one another, creating the beginnings of the storm.”
To be fair I haven’t listened to a lot of their newer work, and some if it, really doesn’t have the same chill out aspect, but variety generally good. Party on.
