After quite a long gathering on Zoom today with many family members, I went to my digital collection to find some music. Right now feels good to listen to some ambient music, to relax and rest in the relative quiet.
So much of life is lived online these days, and while I’m grateful for the opportunities to share and be together virtually, it’s also good to take a break and enjoy the silence.
I’m looking forward to making our usual Saturday night pizza with my sweety. We make such great pizza together, and each week we always say, “Well, that was the best one yet!” We usually watch something while eating our pizza and sharing some wine… maybe tonight it’ll be The NeverEnding Story after Sweety and I chatted about it when I posted the theme song from the movie. Or something else… we’ve got no shortage of things on our must-watch list.
“Aerial” comes from Hotel (2005), the seventh album by American singer-songwriter, producer and animal rights activist Moby (aka Robert Melville Hall). He has been a significant figure on the electronic dance music scene, though much of his recent activity is in the ambient genre.
(Just as I was finishing this post I learned from my sweety, who put the TV news on while the pizza bakes, that Charley Pride has died, from complications related to COVID-19. He’s a favourite of hers, so I will offer up a song of his soon…)
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
Here’s the audio from Moby’s SoundCloud account:
