Discovered this obscure gem of a song in an obscure dud of a movie, which was lampooned on Mystery Science Theatre 3000:
How dare you call a mystery science 3000 movie terrible!!!
The most purely romantic album by any rock/pop band ever. Love Life by Berlin

Currently I'm exploring my interest in microtonal musical, which is music using intervals that fall between the ones available in Western music.
In Western music, the octave is divided into twelve equal divisions, many of which approximate true musical intervals. True musical intervals are based on ratios of harmonies and therefore sound nice. For instance, if you start with a given note, the major third is 5/4 the frequency of it (125%) and the minor third is 6/5 (120%). Our ears experience the ratios as pleasing harmonies. Dividing the octave into twelve equal divisions gives you notes that land very close to these positions and many more that sound nice, which means you can make music.
Many microtonal composers experiment with other divisions of the octave, like nineteen, which also gives you good approximations of true musical intervals (major third, minor third, perfect fifth, etc.) but has additional possibilities that don't exist in Western music.
The author of my next video, on the other hand, has divided the octave into sixteen equal divisions - which, to quote the Xenharmonic microtonal wiki, "it is not especially good at representing most low-integer [i.e., good] musical intervals."
IMO, his two preludes sound out of tune but strangely beautiful, and I've listened to them quite a few times now:

Amy McDonald. I think it's such a shame she got a full sleeve tattoo because she looked so much better without it IMO, but she's a beautiful lady with a beautiful voice.
Agree completely, but then I'm not a huge fan of tattoo's period. Even mine!
