The next recording is a classical piece that sonofsamiam credited to just the composer, but since the composer recorded the work himself in 1957 I went ahead and picked (and credited) that recording as the one we use here. If sonofsamiam doesn’t agree, I’d like to hear it.

819. Olivier Messiaen, with Etiènne Pasquier, Jean Pasquier & André Vacellier - Quatuor pour la fin du temps VII. "Fouillis d'arcs-en-ciel, pour l'Ange qui annonce la fin du Temps"
Year: 1957
Album: Quatuor pour la fin du temps
Biggest Fan: sonofsamiam (#426)

That sure is a mouthful.

It's interesting that we have two people here who semi-regularly add a classical piece to this game, Dexter and sonofsamiam and that both have a very different taste in classical. Whereas Dexter goes for the lighter stuff, sonofsamiam goes for the darker and more experimental. Today we get obviously one of the latter. Nobody in the Viennese court would waltz to this! Having said that, the piece itself is certainly majestic, but not as captivating as other sonofsamiam picks. I do like how the last few seconds seem to predict the score to Psycho three years later.

The Mekons – Where Were You?: 8

I had this one under consideration for my own list. It may not be particularly unique for the punk scene of its era - The Buzzcocks might have considered it - but it is a good example of what I like about such songs. The playful, bouncing guitar and rhythm, the appealing lyrics and the wonderful British accent all just get me moving and grooving.

I don't know this band too well, but what I heard before was far more distinct and forceful. This feels like solid indie rock of the time, but doesn't stand out, nor is it deeply captivating.

Damn this is fun. Rarely has prog allowed itself to be this entertaining. And the most catchy thing is the flute. Only with Jethro Tull.

Why is that?

Sun Kil Moon - Carissa: 7
It is a touching ode to a largely unknown second cousin. The lyrics don't have an elegant flow to them, but the delivery is moving and the words do end up telling a memorable tale.

Ah yes, I liked their other album, Soft Sounds from Another Planet, quite a bit and judging by this song they seem to have had their sound early on. Lovely guitar work.
