He lent me two CDs, one of Bliss' album "Quiet Letters" and the other of "Voyage 2," a world music compilation. Both are excellent examples of ambient music that really should be appreciated by more people. I was hypnotized by Sarah Brightman's "Eden," seduced by Angelo Badalamenti's "Falling" (the theme from "Twin Peaks"), lulled by Bliss' "Sleep Will Come" and brought to the halcyon days of my first relationship with their most famous song, "Kissing."
Such music entices me to leave my physical body behind and harmoniously meld with its melody. As eerie as that sounds, it's true.
