There are times where you happen across something that is wonderful, resonates within you, and makes you feel a certain positive way even though that something is simple and possibly meaningless to everyone else.† Having played the violin for so many years has tuned my ear to music with string instruments and the uplifting music I discovered in the works of the Penguin Caf√© Orchestra, with its perfect serving of strings, caught my ear.
Hereís two of their songs I really love.
Elements of it remind me of music I’ve heard by Hans Zimmer and a few other soundtrack composers. It’s good background music and generally jovial. I love it!
