Headlights on the Parade

One of my favorite groups: The Blue Nile.

I've a hard time thinking of many modern musical groups as impressionistic. In the first couple of albums, especially, there's a fine mix of synthetic and natural instruments, with the former offering the predictable heartbeat of the mechanized city while the later, pianos and strings, provide the unpredictable notes of human existence.

Artist: The Blue Nile
Disc: Hats
Song: Headlights on the Parade
Year: 1989
