a closer look: James Last

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #67: Sunny Side Down Dana tells us of his love of easy listening.

Dana specifically describes easy listening as "elevator music" and plays a little James Last.

James Last is a German composer and big band leader who has released such albums as Wir spielen wieder Polka, Non Stop Dancing 1977, Mambo No. 5 And Other Loved Classics and Polka Party 3.

Dana played a snippet of James Last's cover of House of the Rising Sun on the episode and Ken said it "sucked the life out of House of the Rising Sun."

Here is that song in it's entirety accompanied by odd shots of mountain climbers:
