Your 'theme' song

Hi there,

So I'm sitting around with some buds having a few beers, listening to some tunes when a particular tune is played. My friend gets all excited and says "Oh this is my favourite song! It's my theme song!". I had never heard the tune before, since it was a rock tune. Anywhoo, this led into a conversation about what everyone's theme song was. My buddies are all pretty substantial "rock 'n rollers" so they were able to come up with a song that they thought defined them.

Myself, I was at a loss for words. I honestly couldn't think of a techno tune, that i really felt attached to in a sentimental way. Ben Sims 'Remanipulated (Adam Beyer Remix)' came to my mind because its probably my favorite techno tune... but I mean, I don't 'identify' with it all. I'm a tall, white, skinny dood who grew up in Carp, Ontario... which is about as far away from 'latin' as you can get!

So yeah, my question is... do you have a techno 'theme song'??? And what is it?

peace
Rob

Well...
Today when I got off the bus and walked to the metro- there was a car w./ what must have been large bassy speakers. I was so shocked to hear the bells track by jeff mills! It was so odd, I fully expected to hear ghetto style rap, but instead!!- it was techno.

It made me think of how much techno fits an urban landscape, and soundscape... i thought of detroit, it was cool.

I am looking forward to detroit (DEMF) this year.
I think for techno it is all about the atmosphere and urban or rural backdrop that goes with the industrial sounding tones. -Rather than a theme song, which usually has lyrics and sentiment.

Yesterday when we were checking out this nice space- and the doc was sitting on the broken bmw, I couldnt get M4 by Murizio (sp) out of my head.

I dont think I have a theme song for techno. Its more of a mood?

i don't think i could narrow it to just one, but if i had to take one track with me to a deserted island, or the dark side of the moon, it would have to be "quo vadis" by g man

Apparently, Fattyp tells me that mine is Darude - 'Sandstorm'...

As far as reality goes, The Hi Tech Child - 'Tribal Storm' was the track that got me hooked on techno.

..But I'd be hard pressed to find a single track that 'defines' me , as i like so many various musical styles.

i'm jivin' on Smash TV's "Nobody" right now though....

I guess if I had to choose one it would be Domina-Domina(Maurizio Mix) that is certainly the track that got me started on techno and I still love it and listen to it a lot.

Hey, good track; the Beyer mix is pretty tight. Tommy quo vadis is nice too.

I don't think I can answer this question.

Good call
El Jem isn't bad either.

As for a theme song?
Like some of you said before, it depends on my mood for sure, but at the moment i'm somewhat torn between:
ricardo villalobos - panpot spliff
steve bug & acid maria - electro sex
&
technasia - force

If I ever need to get my groove on:

Man Made 'Spacewreck' on Fragile

Always makes it happen. There is no better track.

However if I'm sombre and mellow.

Norken 'Northern Soul EP B1' on Reel.

made for chillin'
