Song: Love On A Real Train: Tangerine Dream

“Tangerine Dream are a German electronic group that started up in the late 60′s. They played a important role in the whole krautrock movement. At that time they were very experimental in their approach, making their own custom electronic sound equipment and working with sound samples collected on tape recorders. They later got into using synthesizers and started to produce music for film soundtracks.
A track I listen to a lot,’Love On A Real Train’ was a track used for the classic 1983 film Risky Business. Although it is one of their more accessible/ well known tracks, which I listen to quite often, I don’t think it will ever lose it’s unearthly mesmerizing beauty.
Tangerine Dream and especially this track have been highly influential in just about every creative idea I have within video work, bike riding and photography. The track really comes into it’s own on a metro commute home from work on a miserable winters evening. Turn it up loud and let its transcendental positive tones transport you away from the brutal misery to a distant 1980′s future world in the cockpit of an imaginary 5 litre v12 black Lambourghini Countach. I’ll die a happy man if I get to see them perform live. So many people try to replicate that style of music these days and rarely succeed. It was so of that time and created in the enviroment of that time, it can never really be replicated with any true substance.”
