Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go was playing at Bradly’s wedding, and the speakers were really bass heavy. This song has a really interesting, grooving, inventive bass part. Who knew? especially the “I wanna hit that high…” part. If you know who played it – send me a note.
When first introduced to Viktor Ullmann’s piano music I had a feeling that I could have written these – a very strong sense of common language, concept of the piano, and a strong connection to the overall aesthetic. Subsequent listening made this almost freaky. His personal story is remarkable and sad, but the music is moving and meaningful without it.
