Rocks In The Attic #627: Jean-Michel Jarre – ‘Oxygène’ (1976)

RITA#627It is the year 1976. Or should that be 2076?

Oxygène Part IV – another song recently utilised to great effect on the Grand Theft Auto soundtracks, on the similarly numbered GTA IV.

This record features no song-titles, just Oxygène parts I through VI. In 1997, Jarre released a follow-up, Oxygène 7 – 13, and he’s still going strong, recently releasing Oxygène 3 in 2016, which features Oxygène parts 14 to 20.

Here’s to synths, futuristic French musicians, and a lazy song-numbering system.

Hit: Oxygène Part IV

Hidden Gem: Oxygène Part VI
