Monday January 16th, 2017 – Instrumentals


Where do I start? There was a time when I’d fast forward through them, skip them, discredit them. They were actually dissatisfying to me because they had no lyrical element. I’m sure there are some of you find that appalling 😉

Third grade music class, we’ve all put away our recorders after exhausting our last repetitions of “hot cross buns”…the teacher sits us all down to listen to a recording. The recording is of Edvard Grieg’s “Peer Gynt-In The Hall of the Mountain King”.


A story within an instrumental…no lyrics. I realize that is more of a classical example…Still, I sure wish I brought that along with me when judging instrumentals throughout life. Of course, I have much more of an appreciation for them now.


I was sick all week, and did not get a chance to put together any sort of video, or interview anyone 😐 I did have some interesting conversations with people in regards to instrumentals. The general consensus was that I am a crazy person for ever skipping one on an album! Though I know I can’t be the only one out there…

So since this didn’t quite pan out how I wanted it to, I’d like to hear from you…even if it is just one of you reading this… What is your favorite instrumental, and why?
