There is nothing like a well-engineered song through a pair of great headphones. Over the years there have been many songs that just blow you away when listened through headphones, in a dark room, lying on the floor. Let’s look at two this week.
PINK FLOYD – “ECHOES” (1971)
If you want to experience some “out of this world” music, this is one of the best compositions for that. Surreal, spacey, and sometimes outright scary (when you are driving on a deserted back highway at 3:45 in the morning) This song pulses in and out, and takes you places in your mind that you might not be familiar with.
RUSH – “2112” (SIDE ONE) (1976)
Take the whole first side of 2112 as an audio journey that you fill your ears with wonder. Put on your headphones, relax, and go to places you only dream of. It will be 20:34 minutes well spent.
More headphone trips to come, keep your ears open…
