Hey that's great stuff there Shane. The classic synth chords and sounds from the 80's for sure And very well matched to the video footage as well.Nicely done.Speaking of classic synth composing, David Hentshel's epic score for the film "Educating Rita" always sticks in my mind as a great set of melodies. Quite dated now, but unbelievably right on the moment in it's day, and a real favourite of mine.Great memories from great days

That's very kind of you, Vanessa, cheers.There's actually a whole contemporary sub genre of 80s style music out there at the moment called dreamwave, which draws on 1980s tv and movie culture for its inspiration. Mitch Murder is a prominent artist within the scene and this particular track and vid combo of his is a belter:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v....059E43EI've actually never watched Educating Rita before. I'll have to stick that on my love film list.

No problem I checked out the Mitch Murder youtube clip and it was very slick and well executed. Good choice of video to match to as well. I hadn't heard of that Anime show, but then again, I'm no Anime expert, but it looked kinda cool.Actually I've never seen the entire Educating Rita film, only clips. It's the soundtrack movie score I like most about it. It's an acquired taste, but unmistakably 80's

Johnny-come-lately as always but this is really good - both tracks.Both tracks are so pretty and the second one puts that shiver of awesomeness through you.Is it possible to download any of this in MP3 so I can hear it in actual stereo?
Dream big and bold and daring.
