A Dying Medium: Compact Discs [Part 2] (May 25, 2017)

img_8975

Clockwise: Ten Summoner’s Tales, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift OST, and Fields of Gold compact discs.

Previously[i]…

Back in the early 90’s, Compact Discs (CD) were the thing!  A literal upgrade in quality from the bulky Vinyl, 8-track, and cassette tapes.  It was the only way to get music back then as digital downloads were still in its infancy.  CD’s also had a long lifespan–unless you left them under direct sunlight–and were reported to be good for a couple of thousand plays before encountering any problems.

Here is the latest batch of discs that I picked up:

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

A surprising good movie which I still consider a stand-alone in the Fast and Furious franchise.  I’ll need a little more time to go though the OST again but I do remember Tokyo Drift and The Barracuda standing out.

Track List:

  1. Tokyo Drift – Teriyaki Boyz – 4:15
  2. Six Days (Remix) [Featuring Mos Def] – DJ Shadow – 3:52
  3. The Barracuda – The 5.6.7.8’s – 2:28
  4. Restless – Evil Nine – 4:54
  5. Round Round – Far East Movement – 3:20
  6. She Wants to Move [DFA Remix] – N.E.R.D – 3:34
  7. Cho Large [Featuring Pharrell] – Teriyaki Boyz – 5:14
  8. Resound [without intro] – Dragon Ash – 4:45
  9. Speed – Atari Teenage Riot – 2:50
  10. Bandoleros [Featuring Tego Calderon] – Don Omar – 3:18
  11. Conteo – Don Omar – 2:23
  12. Mustang Nismo [Featuring Slash] – Brian Tyler – 2:25

Ten Summoner’s Tales (1993)

Ten Summoner’s Tales was the 4th solo album released by Sting back in 1993.  It was a memorable one for me as it contained the songs: If I Ever Lose My Faith in You and Seven Days–two of my personal favorites.  The album also rekindles memories of the movie Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) which used the song It’s Probably Me.

Track List:

  1. Prologue (If I Ever Lose My Faith in You) – 4:30
  2. Love Is Stronger Than Justice (The Munificent Seven) – 5:12
  3. Fields of Gold – 3:42
  4. Heavy Cloud No Rain – 3:39
  5. She’s Too Good for Me – 2:30
  6. Seven Days – 4:40
  7. Saint Augustine in Hell – 5:05
  8. It’s Probably Me (Sting, Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen) – 4:57
  9. Shape of My Heart” (Sting, Dominic Miller) 4:38
  10. Something the Boy Said – 5:13
  11. Epilogue (Nothing ‘Bout Me) – 3:39

Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984–1994 (1994)

Sting’s first compilation that was released in 1994.  Truly got it for a song: P100 ($2).

Track List:

  1. When We Dance – 5:59
  2. If You Love Somebody Set Them Free – 4:15
  3. Fields of Gold – 3:39
  4. All This Time – 4:55

  6. Mad About You – 3:54
  7. It’s Probably Me – 5:10
  8. They Dance Alone (Cueca Solo) – 7:10
  9. If I Ever Lose My Faith in You – 4:31
  10. Fragile – 3:53
  11. We’ll Be Together – 3:51
  12. Moon Over Bourbon Street – 4:00
