The Songfactor's Choice Top Ten: (Special Edition: Instrumentals)

Recommended Posts

some classic chillout:

La Femme d'argent ~ Air (1998) youtube

"The Silver Woman"

and some Ninja Tune:

Get a Move On ~ Mr. Scruff (1999) youtube

in case anyone recognised it, this is built around a sample from Moondog's "Bird's Lament (In Memory of Charlie Parker)"

the fact that both videos contain footage from the first decades of the last century is purely coincidental - but also interesting, since another song I considered nominating was Scott Joplin's 'The Entertainer' (1905) :D

"first decades"? no, it wasn't THAT long ago :)

I didn't realise it was written that long ago. The 1974 Marvin Hamlisch version from "The Sting" was on my short list. :)
