A Soundtrack to our Lives, Part 1

Music is not merely something we listen to, it is something that affects us in powerful ways. In fact, converted to sonic energy and fired at high enough volumes, it can make Superman bleed, regardless how those lawsuits end.

It is just that powerful.

I like to think The Middle Room is defined in part by the music that forms its soundtrack. And so, in order to enhance the experience of visiting The Middle Room, I am beginning an extended look at some of the songs and artists who inspire me, whose music has played since The Middle Room's beginning, all those long weeks ago.

We start with Optimus Rhyme, whose song "Autobeat Airbus" defines better than any other recording what this blog is about. Enjoy.
