i’ve been listening to some Mike Oldfield lately. some of his later work is a stark contrast to what he sounded like starting out. it’s a very interesting progression through his musical career. he mentioned in various interviews how living in Ibiza influenced the sound of his songs. since Ibiza is famous for the Balearic Beat (a type of trance music) i can see the connection. man, can you imagine owning property in Spain, living the high life out on the Mediterranean? that would be the life. and i can definitely see how the lifestyle would permeate into one’s work. the big summer parties, the majestic views, the wonderful weather and viewing the glorious sunset at Café del Mar. ahh, what a dream
