Top 10 Songs that used a Moog synthesizer

Bob Moog

Bob Moog

Love that the Google doodle today honors the what Bob Moog brought to music. He would have been 78 today. The Moog synthesizer (Pronounced “mohwg,” not “moo-g.”) has been in use for more than four decades’ worth of pop, rock and other music including film. It got me thinking about the best songs that feature moog lines. Here are 10.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer – Lucky Man (Buy MP3)

Pink Floyd – Welcome To The Machine (Buy MP3)

Heart – Magic Man (Buy MP3)

LIPPS INC. – Funky Town (Buy MP3)

Donna Summer – I Feel Love (Buy MP3)

The Who – Bargain (Buy MP3)

The Beastie Boys – Make Some Noise (Buy MP3)

Modern English – I Melt With You (Buy MP3)

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – Blinded By The Light (Buy MP3)

Steve Winwood – While You See A Chance (Buy MP3)

Of course there was Martin Denny and Dick Hyman, but that music is pretty much unlistenable.

Who else did I miss?

‘Terminator’ style glasses from Google

Google released some details Wednesday about a Project Glass initiative that is pretty amazing. These ‘Terminator 2′-style Google goggles use GPS technology, Google maps and voice recognition software to keep you hands free and completely connected to the internet as long as you wear them. The technology isn’t yet available to the public.

The guys that could have bought Google

Remember Excite.com? Well in the late 1990s they had the chance to buy Google for $1 million. Excite wasn’t interested. The offer was lowered to $750,000. Excite passed. Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin stuck with it and their once small search engine is worth about $180 billion. Excite declared bankruptcy in 2001 and the owners now have to tell this story to their grandkids someday.

Google: What do you love?

Google has a new feature that allows you to search across everything Google offers with one click. Type in something you love and every result is displayed nicely on a single screen. I’m gonna go see what comes up when I type “Grizzly Bear Attack.”
