The Music with Talking Thing has to end

I listen to a lot of ambient music during the day while I work — I’ve always listened to something in the background while writing — generally instrumental stuff streamed through which I can tune out but which gets rid of the bleak silence of my office  hereon the Cape or in Manhattan. I’ve noticed over the last six months a lot of music incorporates people speaking  — not singing — fragments of everyday conversations over the music. This is not singing. This is talking. Thank god has a “ban” button so I can banish this stuff forever. But I swear there’s more of it and it keeps coming.

I give you “Little Fluffy Clouds” by The Orb.

And finally, “Close Your Eyes and Daydream” by Obfusc. This one was the last straw and forced this rant out of me.

  1. Everyone’s trying to be a modern day Pink Floyd – The Wall. I do give a pass to Public Service Broadcasting’s “The War Room” though. Old WWII correspondent style reports woven into instrumentals — I think it’s done really well.

  2. Oh, I’ve got the same pet peeve.
    There’re a couple of songs with a nice soft speech, which is pleasant to listen to. Yes, those clouds are must-ban…
