happy music

I could’t offer a technical critique of this c.d,instead I’ll attempt to describe the enjoyment it gave me.Imagine you’re sitting in your car listening to the radio,not terribly enthusiastic about getting out to start work.You become aware there’s a bright ,cheerful sounding tune being played-vaguely familiar,I find myself tapping out the beat and humming along-what’s this called then?Then we get to the part I can identify-DAH-DAHdeDAHdeDAH-DAH-DAH-Oh,of course,it’s the music they used in “The Hunters”,oh the memories that brought back.That tune got me out of the car ,through the day’s turmoil,and when I woke up the next morning at 3a.m.,it was still going throgh my head!Okay,log onto Amazon,click,click,all I’ve gotta do now is contain my impatience .The C.D. duly arrived,suffice it to say it exceeded all my expectations regarding quality and content and has become one of my favourites.
