Brian Eno - music for airports
Apparently, it was played on a loop in Chicago's O'Hare airport back in early 80s, which seems like something that would have been oddly fashionable in the early 80s.
All those earthy tones, those jeans, the end of an era without a new one to replace it. It was an interesting time, a time of Ordinary People and Kramer vs. Kramer and a time for Brian Eno to kick ass.
It was after this that all those British musicians started playing World music and got all weird and Peter Gabriel-ish. Eno was no stranger to some odd choices of fashion and music.
Music for Airports is pure peace.
