Telstar

(link)

I've become obsessing lately over this song Telstar by the Tornados. It's a borderline novelty record, using a clavioline and sound effects to give it that space-age electronic sound, but there's this part at right about the one minute and two minute marks where the melody turns really melancholy and it just kills me for some reason. I can't stop listening to it. (It occurs to me that this may be in some way related to my depression, which is getting better by the way.)

I'm listening to a Pandora station based on Telstar now and it's great, lots of epic surf rock and other instrumental classics from the 50s and 60s.
