The Tunes That You Probably Forgot About (Or Maybe Never Even Heard Yet)

| June 2nd, 2011 | No Comments »

Sitting here at lunch, with my headphones blown out, and no way to listen to my tunes, I’ve had some time to contemplate some musical musings.

As I was thumbing through my portable music library I began to find great tracks that I forgot about, were underrated, or simply didn’t get the play I think they deserved.

I’m sure that we could put together a pretty impressive list of these kinds of tunes – I’ll get it started:


Prodigy – Diesel Power

Great tune from my favourite Prodigy album “The Fat of The Land”. If you’ve got some subwoofers that need testing, this track is the one to do it.
