nomoby does it better

January 15th, 2007

How do you like the stupid pun? :P

Seriously though, I'm in awe of Moby. His gift for making feel good music is seemingly unmatched. And the music is so simple too, I tend to be a sucker for complicated, but his basic compositions really appeal to me. The instruments obviously play a big part in it, Moby loves strings and so do I. But the arrangement is such that it brings out a different set of emotions than just about any other music.

Like this song from the "Miami Vice" soundtrack. The musical "canvas" isn't at all cluttered with elements, he's keeping it simple and meaningful. And lots of repetition. But repetition is only bad when you're repeating something nasty. Then there's Patti LaBelle's excellent voice to top it off. It's a winner. :star:

    If you like strings I can recommend - although it is completely different to Moby- Arcade Fire's Funeral album.

    I'm a bit of a Moby fan - I have Play, 18 and Hotel at home.
