Way back in the ’80s and ’90s we used to use music to set the mood. Sometimes it was just something in keeping with the mood — a soundtrack from a movie, usually. For a while there, I was creating mix tapes to be used at key moments because Miami Vice had made pop music mood-setting a thing. It’s funny that now that I can easily mix and match music and key it at the appropriate time with my laptop, I don’t.

I have occasionally queued up the 1920/30s channel on the internet radio for the Hollow Earth Expedition game, but generally, I’ve stopped using music. Maybe i should try it again.
