Happy birthday to [personal profile] loonilicious! I hope you have/had a wonderful day! *hugs*

Happy Halloween/Samhain Everyone! To celebrate this, our day of Creep, I will round out this year's October Song a Day posts with one of the only songs I can't listen to by myself. The first time I heard György Ligeti's "Musica Ricerrcata, II" was when I saw the preview for Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. I was so disturbed by the preview, specifically because of the music, that I only saw the film under duress. There is something so unsettling about Dominic Harlan's piano playing on this track; even though it's pretty just a half-step being played over and over again it causes goosebumps for me every time I hear it. I have no idea why I own this soundtrack because it's not like I can listen to it without skipping the first and final tracks. So...enjoy?

And here, have a slightly appropriate unicorn chaser. :)

Okay, I guess that'll do us for another year. Thanks for listening; I hope some of you heard some stuff you like. Now: NaNoWriMo. :)
