Monday Morning Music: Deodato’s Zarathustra

October 27, 2008

I’m re-watching Sagan’s Cosmos, and the first episode had a snippet of a somewhat jazzed-up Also Sprach Zarathustra.  Which reminded me of my favorite version of that theme, by Eumir Deodato.  I had it on stereo cassette in my hopped-up VW back in ‘77, pushing the boundaries of safety and sanity on back roads of East Tennessee:

Let this one play while you get ready (the video is quite superfluous) and hit the week with rhythm and verve, baby.

    Wow… talk about time travel! I can’t even remember the last time I heard that, but it is rather a coincidence since just a couple of weeks ago I had a yearning to see 2001 again, and rented the DVD. Now I may even have to go and dig out my ancient 2001 LP and see if it still plays after all these decades :-)
