Superb PSB 2018 Remix

#1 Post by scienceguy » Wed 10 Apr 2019, 9:43 pm

Perfect for planespotters and trainspotters, two sound clips will help explain my experience with this
exquisite Pet Shop Boys remix. First [skip ad], you will see and hear a KLM cargo jet about to take
off from MIA in heavy rain. Tune in about 6:30 to see the behemoth move into position on runway
09. At about 8:00, while the cockpit is relatively quiet and dark, the captain gets final instructions, and
just after 8:15, listen for the last five (really three) words he speaks just before rolling at full throttle,
engines screaming. The second is an amazing clip of a German steam locomotive complete with
whistle.

I like to think of Neil's "Here we go" as a kind of signature expression, indicating that something
special is about to happen. Indeed, the remix first begins very quietly, but soon, I can almost hear
those words as the mood shifts, a head-spinning explosion occurs, and nonstop rock 'n roll ensues.
You will not be able to sit still. And for those of you who speak German, there's a treat right out of
the gate. Finally, while other remixes can be flat and uninspiring, in this gem, I hear a dramatic,
undulating, and recurring locomotive-like sound, much like that of the train in the clip, which enriches
my listening experience all the more. Maybe you'll hear it, too.

So, enjoy:

Thanks james23_uk for the comment. I'm listening to it as I write this. Looks like the hits have soared on this. That makes me very happy.
