A Balearic List // a list of favourite tracks

About A Balearic List

This site is a list of my favourite balearic (eclectic, mixed-up, dreamy, absurd, ridiculous, profound) tracks. As it's a list of my own favourites, it's heavily subject to my own tastes (hey, I'm a sucker for melodies). However, I do hope this site can act as place for music lovers to discover new sounds and become a place you come back to, just to see what new tracks have been added, if your tastes in the "balearic sound" are similar to my own.

A lot of these are tracks have been identified from mixes, or heard on the radio as a kid growing up in the 80s, or even picked up from amateur music artist sites like mp3.com and reasonstation.net back in the late 90s / early 2000s - just picked up from somewhere. The sources are varied, as are the tracks. Having said that, in recent years, I've become a bit of a "track spotter" on various sites from youtube.com to noiseinmyhead.com.au to testpressing.org - great sources of music discovery.

Some tracks I just cannot get identified, and have listed them here with audio clips - if you can name them, please let me know.
