Lounge & easy listening with shorter skirts and longer sideburns. Plus soundtracks that swing.
My name is Dave. I live in Brooklyn, NY. When I was a kid, I realized I was different. Here's the deal (and stay with me here). I'd be at home from school watching an afternoon movie on TV with, say, Frank Sinatra or someone else playing a detective, there was always a scene where the person in question has to visit an informant who works at, say, a strip club. Whenever these scenes would come on, I would always focus intently on the music playing in the background. It was sort of this psuedo-psychedelic instrumental rock & roll music. I couldn't get enough of it. Some examples: Lady in Cement: the strip club scene with Frank Sinatra & Lainie Kazan (Hugo Montenegro) Airport: Dean Martin looks over at a split screen with Jacqueline Bisset getting out of the shower. Also, the diner scene with Maureen Stapleton & Van Heflin (the Alfred Newman background music is one of the selections on this station) Frenzy: The diner scene where the villain escapes out of the back of the potato truck. Ron Goodwin swings, baby. The Odd Couple: The opening scene in the Times Square go-go club. Neal Hefti. These are just a few. It's great to be able to take this insanity and share it. I hope you like it. I'd love to hear your suggestions!
