They were thoughtful responses – from readers whose lives had been changed by electronic music classics by Wendy Carlos, Delia Derbyshire, Roger Powell, John Foxx, Gary Numan, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, New Order, Daft Punk, The Propellerheads, Rick Wakeman, Steve Roach, Nine Inch Nails and dozens of other artists.
All great stuff – but we know that’s not all that you’ve got in your music library.
There are also the guilty pleasures – the stuff that you love, even though you’re a little embarrassed to admit it.
There are probably a few tracks like Kylie Minogue’s Come Into My World, one of the guilty pleasures you’ll find in my iTunes library.
I could probably explain to you that the song’s got a mind-bending music video by Michel Gondry.
But at the end of the day, it’s an earworm of dance track that features Kylie crooning “I want you to come, come, come into my world.” Hard to resist.
It doesn’t stop there, though. Dig deeper into my iTunes library and you’ll find the happy synth pop of Gershon Kingsley’s Popcorn. I’ll even admit to one Britney Spears tune – Toxic.
What’s your electronic music guilty pleasure? We know that there’s more to your music library than Aphex Twin and Boards Of Canada………
