On New Year's Eve circa 1977 the St. Louis PBS station played Fritz Lang's film "Metropolis" with a synthesizer soundtrack written and played by a student at a St. Louis college (Washington University?).

I was very excited and planned to make the most of the event. I invited my best friend to watch it with me. But he brought his kid sister who bitched through the first half hour that she wanted to go out and do something. I finally relented because another friend promised to VHS it for me (brand new tech!) and we went to some stupid bar.

I visited the friend who taped it and we checked the tape to make sure it recorded. Yep. But he wouldn't let me have it. He insisted that he needed to make a copy of it for himself first. Later that week he "accidentally" taped over the whole thing.

In all I got to hear about ten uninterrupted minutes of the synth soundtrack. I have not been able to locate the music online. Perhaps it's time to try googling it again.

None of this has anything to do with this tune. But it helps explain why my current best friends are cats.
