    As for Mindhunter, I could watch that series for Anna Torv alone. The most gorgeous and simultaneously charismatic woman on TV nowadays, and that voice...

    One of these days, I need to chronicle all of the bootleg uses of prog tracks in the soundtracks of Chinese and Turkish movies. Master of Flying Guillotine is the most [in]famous example, with all the NEU! and Tangerine Dream stuff (Quentin Tarantino even stole—sorry “paid homage to”—this in one of his films). I was extremely surprised when I finally saw the infamous Category III trash-terpiece Lewd Lizard and found both Mahavishnu Orchestra’s “Vision Is a Naked Sword” and ELP’s “The Endless Enigma, Part I” on the soundtrack. The latter turned up again in Şeytan (PG-rated Turkish rip-off of The Exorcist with an Islamic theme).

    Wish I could remember the name of the chop-socky flick which used the Einstein in Eden album on it’s soundtrack—how did something so obscure even find its way to Hong Kong?

    This past Wed night, I was watching the Penguins play the Colorado Avalanche. During one break in the action, the PA at the Pgh arena started playing Yes, "Roundabout".

    This evening we were celbrating my dad's 91 birthday in a local restaurant and at some point I heard Sabbath bloody Sabbath by Black Sabbath.

    I remembered, it was Dragon Against Vampire from 1985. Tangerine Dream (stuff from Rubycon and Force Majeure) also turns up on the soundtrack.

    I'm currently watching a PBS documentary on Mario Lanza and they just had a clip of Steve Hackett talking about him.

    My wife, Rhea, attended a community theater performance of Jesus Christ Superstar in the mid to late '90s. An instrumental version of Yes' "Machine Messiah" was performed during the Crucifixion scene!

    I’m watching the TV series Fortitude and in season 2 Episode 6, possibly the most loathsome, disgusting character in the show is (unfortunately) seen listening and grooving to Roundabout on his car radio. He clearly knows it well. I wonder about the decision to show this utter scumbag seeming to be a Yes fan. Sort of rubbed me the wrong way.

    Anyway, if and only if you’re up for a disturbing, harrowing roller coaster ride of drama and horror I recommend Fortitude.

    A week or 2 ago, they were playing prog in the nearest Fry's grocery store, the Arizona iteration of Kroger.

    I just was playing the game PLOK on my Super Nintendo. And in the current level, this here is the tune:



    sounds a lot proggy to me

    There are more songs on the PLOK OST that are like this. Very good stuff.

    I put together a satirical sports montage once for my radio station using parts of [redacted to avoid legal issues because I've trampled all over copyrights for 20 years]. I was told after it aired once, "What kind of music was that?", as if it was something off-the-wall eclectic - it wasn't. It was something that a lot of critics on PE would consider retro or neo or pablum or whatever. However, it was too "weird" for the host of the show. From then on, I just stuck with pop hits and standards between 1940 and 70.

    Has anyone else seen the Chevy commercial that uses “Engel der Gegenwart” by Popol Vuh on its soundtrack?

    I mentioned this on another thread, but in the last episode of the series, "Killing Eve", during the very last scene, "Spiritual" by Magma is playing.

    BTW, I saw the original painting for sale in a San Francisco music related art store. I forgot how much it was, but it wasn't cheap (duh)!
    I also visited a gallery that had a bunch of his originals in it, I think CTTE was going for 800k!?!?

    BBC version of Life on Mars: TONS of 70s prog in the soundtrack! It opens with Life on Mars paying on an iPod and, I won't tell you how, but the next scene its playing on an 8 track. Brilliant show.

    It's been a long since I saw that show, but as I recall, in one scene, they used the instrumental intro Uriah Heep's Gypsy during a foot chase.

    Three weeks or so ago, at the foot of the road where I live, just by the football stadium (it's lower league football, so "stadium" is a bit grandiose), every time I was walking home from town, I'd hear ELP playing from an open window - the first couple of times it was Trilogy, then the next time, it was Tarkus, then BSS...then, it was the new lockdown & the weather got really cold...so I wasn't walking past, & the window wasn't open.

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.
