TEE as maybe my favorite Kraftwerk piece made me check my digitized tape recordings folders to look for my favorite electronic music, unfortunately I have not recorded the titles and have to try to find them with music recognitions apps - I have to look for those later. Since pieces without words seem to qualify for the thread, here a few I know the titles of.

Tangerine Dream, Le Parc 7, Hyde Park https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJ_3Kq0gTVA

Grobschnitt, album Illegal: Silent Movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2XZ_bKXg08

I have yet to decide if Equinoxe III is more or equal my Jean Michel Jarre favorite than Oxygene IV

My new favorite piece of Kraftwerk is now that which Coldplay used to make Talk - and the Coldplay variation I like more than the original Computer love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlYm8TIj9sU

As I recall, Tangerine Dream was better known in the US during their heyday, though Kraftwerk will always be known*, for better or worse, from Michael Myers' "Sprockets".

 

* "Autobahn" was popular

I recall vividly when the movie "Thief" came out in 1981 and Tangerine Dream made a huge splash doing the soundtrack album.  I remember that the song played during the end credits was a different version on the soundtrack album than what was in the movie.  It was so annoying because what was in the movie was much more dramatic.  I found the better version on Youtube:

Jean-Michel Jarre: this is a good track.  I remember Oxygene, and his abilities as composer and performer (difficult to do both well); it's hard to believe he's 72.

Was this what you were looking for?

Unfortunately not, as this is just a part of the opus. Nevertheless thx for your efforts. TEE (6:36) is combined with "Metall auf Metall" (1:46) and "Abzug" (5:18), i.e. in total it has a length of 13:40 minutes. I'm a bit surprised that the orginal German version is not published on YT.

I tried out Shazam and Soundhound and got 60% of the titles of my favorite electronic music

Tangerine Dream: Cloudburst Flight, Stratosfear, MoorlandDas Mädchen auf der Treppe

Serge Blenner: Pour Séduire, Esthématique, Micro Rêve, Palabre d'A

Yello: Ciel Ouvert

Vangelis; 3/3, To the Unknown Man

Robert Schroeder: The Inside Of Feeling, Frozen Breath Of Life

Software: Phancyful-Fire

Baffo Banfi - Quelle Dolce Estate Sul PIaneta Venere

Harald Grosskopf - So weit, so gut

Wolfgang Riechmann - Wunderbar

Eroc - Wolkenreise

Wally Badarou - Mambo (Echoes)

Easy to guess that electronic music, after classical music, is my favorite type of music

Wow! Outside of TD and Vangelis, I haven't heard of any of these groups.  I've got some work to do ...

You haven't heard of Yello? I thought they were famous. B-)
Check out their first two albums - they're pure gold if you don't mind some kind of weird.

This is my alltime favourite Yello track, which fits right into Akinomaki's bill:

Well, "This video is not available", so that hurts.

I swear to living high holy that I have never heard that name.  After reading the Wikipedia article I realize that I have heard the track "Oh, yeah": it is associated with hundreds and hundreds of films, TV shows and videos, most of them involving appealing shots of women's backsides.  I don't believe I have ever seen the name "Yello" associated with it.

Having said that, I will investigate further ( even the non-backside component of their oeuvre).

Favorite songs is difficult. I've been listening to music for about a year and a half now, and as such, can't seem to relate to what is happening in  the last 20 years.. Metal is cool, but too technical for me-the howling, the  Yingwie-esque speed-too much for me. All very impressive and makes me jealous of the abilities, but flies over my head-whoosh! Classic and Jazz are fine once in a while, but my attention span is of a three year old in a toy store. To me, a favorite song is one that makes you cry. "In My Life" makes me cry, though I've played it thousands of times. "Tempted" (Squeeze) drives me up a wall every time I hear it. "Kid Charlemagne" (Steely Dan)  kills me when the guitar solo enters. "Sukiyaki" (Ue wo muite-Sakamoto Kyu) does it very time I hear it, as it is the soundtrack of my childhood. In short-i need a melody-screams and technique intrigue me but don't touch me. Oh yeah, then there is "Baby I'm Gonna Leave You".  And in 1991, we supported Deep Purple in Tel Aviv (45000 people), so that was fun..

Now for something totally different.  "Foul Owl on the Prowl" is a catchy little tune from one of my all-time favorite movies -- "In the Heat of the Night" starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger.

This Johnny Cash song was recorded live at San Quentin State Prison in San Quentin, California, in February 1969.  My favorite version!

"Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" is a great Christmas song for those, like me, who have a dark sense of humor.

"Put Another Log on the Fire" is the ultimate misogynistic song.

This song is definitely weird.  Sung by Tiny Tim, who wasn't exactly tiny.  He was a one-hit wonder.

Exactly. Thx a lot. Of course I have this record on Vinyl and as CD, so I can hear it whenever I want. Great when driving on the Autobahn with 180+ km/h
