Ah, Memories

Back when I was, ahem, off the derech, my musical tastes ran the gamut. But I have always had a soft spot for techno, specifically trance. To quote my friend H, techno is happy music. And in my mind, techno was to the '90s what the love-in was to the '60s. How can you resist all that peace and love?

Pre-Shabbos, I happened to be in techno mode, and played a few of my fave tracks. It was kind of a rave for one. :) But tonight, when my friend D gave me an opportunity to hit YouTube and spend an hour or so getting back into technoland...well, that was something special. And it left me inspired.

So for D and H (and any other reformed speaker girls out there!), here is a sampling of my "go to" techno songs. Hope you enjoy!

ATB featuring Paul Van Dyke
Two powerhouses collaborate. Could it get any better? I think not...

ATB featuring Miss Jane- One Fine Day
Are you sensing a trend here? :p

Fragma- Toca's Miracle

Ian Van Dahl- Castles in the Sky

Melanie C- I Turn To You

Paul Oakenfold- Send Me An Angel
This one is representative. The man is simply a genius and I love almost everything by him.


  1. Been listening to Castles in the Sky on my Basshunter station on
    I Turn to You sounds good.
    ATB/Paul van Dyke, I like parts but too slow as a whole.

    What do you think of this?

  2. Cute link. Although it makes me think of techno Hello Kitty, lol.

    As for being too slow, the whole point of the trance subgenre of techno is that it has a slower beat per minute ratio. That's actually why I prefer trance hands-down to any other flavour of techno.

  3. Add your favorite to pandora, and they'll create a station with similar music. Great way to find new stuff.
