Flashback Friday: "In The Waiting Line".

Initially I thought the compilation below does not qualify for a Flashback just yet, as it still feels so very modern and new to me. However, realizing it is almost ten years since its release made me again so very aware of the relativity of time...

Thus may I present the "youngest" Flashback here to date, with its wonderfully escapist and ethereal feel.
Perhaps the name of the artist and the song might escape you, however, once you listen to it, it might be perceived as somewhat familiar. It is performed by Zero 7 , a duo based in the United Kingdom, known for using guest vocalists in their work. Their sound has a very pleasant, jazzy, downtempo style to it.

"In The Waiting Line", from the 2001 album Simple Things has been used in numerous soundtracks, among others for the Sex And The City and House series. It has that certain meditative sound, that makes us want to close our eyes and relax...

Have a wonderful, relaxing Friday everyone.

This was a really pretty song! I've seen a ton of the SATC episodes so I kept thinking I should've recognized it but I didn't.

As ever, lovely post.

I like it! There is a "louge/chill-out" sound to it! though I must confess I never heard of them before...maybe I have heard their relaxing tunes, but never really knew who was behind them.
have an equally lovely Friday! and a good weekend ahead :-)

Ten years is like 100 in music years. I'm glad this one qualifies because I wouldn't have known about it if it wasn't. Thanks! It's wonderful.
Happy weekend,
