Who'd of thought...

That just listing a load of place names had any place in music.

Sometimes when I'm stressed I find I can only get to sleep at nights by having music playing at low volume when I hit the sack. Last night it was Lemon Jelly's Lost Horizons - wonderfully relaxing music, complex enough to warrant actually listening, tune in to tune out, and inspired simplicity wrapped up nicely in blissful perfection.

But I've always had a thing for Ramblin' Man - wherein the majority of the tune consists of spoken word recitations of place names over a soothing, repeating melody. It's just perfect. Bizarre, but perfect. And now it comes in WoW flavour as someone has made an Azeroth travel diary with the tune as backing. Fucking inspired!
