ode to lujon

The perfect song.

Henry Mancini’s Lujon is the perfect song. Note to all musicians everywhere: you might as well give up. You’re too late. Henry Mancini already did as much with music as can be done. Everything else is futility.

You can hear a sample of the song here:

This sample includes all of the best parts, from beginning to end. There’s really nothing I can say that does this song justice other than making a heartfelt recommendation that you listen to it. Over and over.

Then go buy Mr. Lucky Goes Latin so you can listen to it some more. And more. And more, over and over.
