My earliest memory of that song was when I was hanging out in front of my house one afternoon.  I was probably around 16.  Some kids my age drove up in a white convertible.  They asked if I wanted to come along.  They were super nice.  I didn't know them.  They didn't know me.  But it was a time when you didn't worry so much about crazies hurting you.  They drove me to the nearest town for a while and then dropped me back at my house.  It was a white convertible with the top down.  A beautiful Sat. afternoon.  And that piece was playing on the radio.  It was magic.

I was listening to Yellow Magic Orchestra because I'd heard that Yukihiro Takahashi had died, and someone suggested in the youtube comments that I should listen to this.  Well, I'd never heard of Daniel Miller, but this is pretty entertaining.  Can't say I love it or anything, but it's a fun take on this old song.

YMO, a blast from the past indeed. Have a lot of Ryuichi Sakamoto work.
Remember the song also.

Listen a lot of music on my walk to work, ATM listening to The 1975

A few of the tracks I listen to on Spotify are now greyed out for some reason. Mysteriously, they now seem to be available on Apple Music.

It this another case of one company muscling out another by exclusivity?
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Would guess so, licences and all that.
Whilst I walk to work and back I now listen to Cillian Murphy radio 1 playlists, Love the fact that the music (not only him) is so diverse

I wish the U.S. had a good radio source like that.  I would sometimes find playlists by Annie Nightingale from Radio One and listen to those.  It used to be the case that there were small independent radio stations in the U.S.  They were local but the DJs really cared and would put together great playlists so you could always discover interesting new music.

Listening to Audio books on the walk to work.
Just finished Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern is unusual ( enjoyed The Night Circus).

I used to choose long series for my audio-book listening: Master & Commander, Wheel of Time, Dune, Foundation etc. It did mean that there was a massive culture shock at the end of a many-month series changing to a completely new one.

Yep, Sometimes needed though :)
