A friend of mine posted a Facebook Facecloth message, saying she is DJing tonight and has no idea what records to play, asking for tips on what “the kids” are listening to these days.
I replied: “It’s not what the kids are listening to, it’s what they should be made to listen to. I recommend Scriabin’s ‘Poem Of Ecstasy’, Op.54.”
Scriabin : tiny little hands
The kids are listening to dance remixes of My Little Ponies themes tunes these days. And by “the kids” I mean twenty-year-olds. Just knowing this is agony.
Let it here be noted that mention of Scriabin upon this website followed by a spell of boredom and curiosity on my part has caused a kindling in my brain pan of a love for the music of aforementioned eccentric Russian gent.
