Absolutely. When I heard that piece it changed my life and listening habits (bye bye rap). It's also possibly the only 12' (I'm struggling to think of another) that I can happily listen from start to finish and be completely engrossed and satisfied.

He was at Uni with one of my best friends.

For some reason, that ad-lib at 5:39 never fails to blow my mind, still. Bravo Richard, Bravo Sir :yay:


"people who are allergic to 1-note music will never get it though" - They are missing out and, it was all 1 note music to start :lol:

Take on Me, Being Boiled (Fast Version), Open your heart, Underpass/Film One could all easily fill space #2

What a fab thread, listening to some great music this morning :bacon:

I'm with you and have been editing that break for about 35 years, still not as good as Remarc or Dillinja :despair: but, I still love firing it up even to this day (I'm 53 years old now LOL).

On a more serious note, the music landscape would be very different if not for THAT performance break specifically.

The Hardcore (I'm talking pre Jungle here - Early sampled amen breaks - Dreamscape) I grew up on would not have existed and the genres it later informed would have been less angsty.

Possibly the finest break ever recorded (Funky Drummer, Assembly Line, Apache, Levee, Big Beat......)

Of course it is, Amen to that!

Case in point - I was there .......

Here are my suggestions:

Tangerine Dream - Phaedra
Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygene
Rick Wakeman - Journey to the Centre of the Earth (original live recording)
Kraftwerk - Autobahn
Donna Summer - I Feel Love
Gary Numan - Are Friends Electric

Unsure if they are the "greatest", but in my opinion they are probably some of the most influential electronic songs ever, which could make them the "greatest"?
