My Quiet Life My Quiet Life

It can’t quite compare to the pure piano rendition in the heart-wrenching sadness department, but I really love Les Baxter’s MOOG version of Chopin’s prelude in E minor:

The first couple of times I heard it, it took me a minute to realize it was Chopin and not just some random 60’s film score.. It makes you realize how much stylistic overlap there really was between a lot of these guys and their romantic predecessors.
