I didn’t pay much attention to music during my time in Spain. It didn’t bother me. Before I left, I spent hours working on a playlist on my iPhone. I had this romantic image of me starting out a walk at 5am while listening to Sigur Ros or Eddie Vedder watching the sun come up. But I didn’t listen to much music, mainly on 1st day walking out of Logrono and when I was alone. Also on my final two days travelling back home on the bus to Bilbao and on the flight. But in between, music wasn’t even discussed. I didn’t mind at all. Actually I preferred it that way.
But anyway, here is a short list of music I did listen to. Some you might know, others perhaps not.
Bibio – À tout à l’heure
Andrés Segovia – Granada
Bibio – Business Park
Jeanette – Porque Te Vas
Oscar Lopez – Classical Soul
John Williams – Sakura Variations
Live – I Alone
Sigur Rós – Sæglópur
Arcade Fire – Rebellion (Lies)
Woodkid – Conquest of Spaces
Sigur Rós – Glósóli
Eddie Vedder – Hard Sun
Tunng – Don’t Look Down Or Back
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins – Your Own Spell
Bonobo – Cirrus
Boards of Canada – Dayvan Cowboy
The John Williams, Andres Segovia and Oscar Lopez tracks are very new to me..I discovered them while trawling through the hundreds of Camino clips on YouTube. Classical guitar is painful to play but great to listen to.
