Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No. 1

Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No. 1.
Yep, it's the first song that doesn't have lyrics that has touched this blog.
It's a great song, and it's really nice to listen to. It's calming, it's beautiful, this blogger right here is in love with Erik Satie's music at the moment, so yeah. <3

Here's a nice clip with pictures of autumn. The picture quality sucks, but hey - it's for the music, so you can just keep this blog open on a tab while you study. If you have Spotify (it's like a free iTunes on your PC with occasional ads! ack, free advertising. sorry.), then there's a lot of MP3s for you to listen to if you just type in 'Erik Satie' in the search box. :D

I just think that the left hand is a little bit harsh in this rendition, but all pianists' ears are different, so that's just my opinion. ^.^

And here's another one - warning: the left hand does slightly strike out, perhaps to startle you a little bit, but the sound quality is pretty nice, the beginning includes a short bit of rolling waves - it's all extremely calming.
I could listen to Erik Satie all day. <3

Overall, this is a really nice piece worthy of your time and energy.
Listen to it.
Or else.
*insert dramatic music here*
