Vangelis is damn amazing when he's doing soundtracks.


Absolutely fantastic.

This is a damn moody piece by Jan Hammer. Too bad I can't find the theme to Dark Angel anywhere. Movie by Dolph Lundgren back when he was at his career high. Had a fantastic soundtrack I immediately recognized as Jan Hammer handiwork.

Found it. There' s the Jan Hammer style again. Airy and smooth with a bit of edge in it.

This actually surprised me a lot. I remember loving the OST as a kid and lo and behold IT'S FRIGGING TOTO!!!!

Funny how lot of the synthesizer stuff is soundtrack music. :D I guess those stick with you more than the ones that came in cassettes and were heard as background noises while sitting in the backseat.

Hans Zimmer used to do synthesizer music too. I guess I should scrounge up some non-OST music too

Yeah, synthwave is the quintessential example these days... Love it myself...
It's funny how the 80s esthetics came snapping back just a bit tuned up with better production values and modern base lines... I always loved this shit... But I'm happy that it kinda catched the mainstream too...

Synth plus bass is the best

Yeah, vangelis is quintessential 80s synth goodness...
Chariots of fire will never die...
Speaking of the 80s, don't forget Mike Oldfield

This one doesn't really fit, but it came crashing into my mind just now... No clue if anybody outside Germany knows this one, but it's so much fun... This is the abridged live version... I FUCKING LOVED THIS as a child :love:
