There is a Columbo episode with the villain experiencing a rather serious case of a night of extreme loneliness and contemplation. In the background you hear a lady singing the song "I'm so lonesome I could cry". It's a song most people have heard, but this rendition is a shock and attention getter due to the emotion and purity of delivery. It elicits a search to find the artist since it doesn't seem to appear in the shows credits. Apparently there isn't a cut other than a recording from the Johnny Carson show. Here's the beautiful version by Bernadette Peters.
And then, there is the male version of similar talent. Fabulous!
Found an old compilation cd in my to go back that starts out with the music from the Donkey Kong level where Donkey and Diddy swim under water. A serene electronic number by David Wise. It ends with the theme song from the Steve McQueen movie Bullitt.
It's another compliation I put together in 010 (according to the title "Another best of 10) that starts out smooth, builds tempo that mellows at points and covers a period of rock & roll music between the late 1960's and 2010 when Julian Casseblancas put out his initial solo record in late 2009.
