Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #650 - COSMIC DRIFT - Musical Monday for 1704.17

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #650 - COSMIC DRIFT - Musical Monday for 1704.10

Hi Mom,

Given that it is sunny and warm outside, I should post songs about sunshine, but I already had this post planned and had named it "Cosmic Drift" because I came across the phrase as I was assembling the songs.

In part, today's playlist is a hodge podge (or a gallimaufry as I tell my students, as it's one of our words of the day). Today's list is a bit of a mixture. The Keke Palmer song really stands out as one that does not fit, but listen to it and watch the video. I think it relates to our drift theme in some ways.

Fink and James Blake may also seem off the path, so I tried for more unity with two Thievery Corporation tunes and that GREAT slowed version of "Rachel's Song." I love this space ambient stuff. In fact, I love it so much that I found a 125 track playlist on Sound Cloud called COSMIC DRIFT. Good stuff.

Drift away but maybe sample the You Tuber stuff before diving into the Sound Cloud as it's huge.

I am trying to alternate work and studying Calculus here in the Sangren Star Trek conference room. Blog posts may be short or reprints from now until the exam: EIGHT DAYS UNTIL THE FINAL EXAM!!

Drift away, mom. Drift, COSMIC DRIFT.

Maybe start with Keke Palmer. It's dope.


I did not make special playlist in You Tube for this post, but all the videos are saved to my main Musical Mondays playlist.

1. Cosmic Drift Playlist via Soundcloud - 125 tracks!!

2. Thievery Corporation - "The Cosmic Game"
3. Ananda Yantram - "Cosmic Drift"
4. Space Ambient "Rachel's Song" from BLADE RUNNER slowed 800%
5. Fink - "Yesterday Was Hard On All Of Us"
6. Flunk - "Cigarette Burns"
7. James Blake - "Modern Soul"
8. Björk - "lionsong"
9. Björk - "Mutual Core"
10. Keke Palmer - "Hands Free"
11. Thievery Corporation - "Treasures"
12. Thievery Corporation - "Weightless"






Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
