Prick Tunes: Erik Satie "Trois Gymnopédies"

Nothing like a little French minimalist action courtesy of the late great Erik Satie. I once kicked off a schizophrenic 'mix tape' with this and then followed it up with "Working for the Weekend." That cowbell was fucking jarring. I feel confident in saying that I'm likely the only person in the history of time who has juxtaposed Satie against Loverboy.

First time checking out IP..

That Satie is the shit, always. Loverboy song was on the first LP I ever bought with my own money, the K-TEl comp Hit Express, and I distinctly remember starting it over and over and over again because I thought the cowbell intro was the most incredible thing I'd ever heard. At six years old (or whatever), it probably was. Completely forgot about that until right now.

Brandon,

Welcome. It's not just that you were six years old. That cowbell intro is still the most incredible thing you've ever heard.
