Today’s Music Monday was a serendipitous discovery! Clara and I went back to the Velvet Fog Record Bar up in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains on Saturday, and bought a Tears for Fears 45 as soon as we laid our eyes on it.

Side A was their world-famous Everybody Wants to Rule The World single, but we didn’t recognise Side B. We played it last night back home, and I haven’t been able to get the melody and background instrumentation out of my head since. It sounds like that cinema scene from Superliminal.

Play Pharaohs

I love that somewhere, someone had that 45 brand new and listened to it. The wear on Side A was significantly higher than Side B, so who knows, this particular track could have been sitting there unknown for decades, waiting to be discovered again. I like that.
