Digital Flotsam 59 – Stendhal Syndrome

Listen to the show: DF59.mp3

Another of the “Lost Episodes”. Originally published a couple of years ago it was taken off line because of rights issues. Now it’s back, with new music, and it’s better than ever.

You will hear…

The classical music of Giacomo Puccini is featured most, and one aria “O mio babbino caro” most of all. Hard to recommend one particular recording.

“Statue Got Me High” by They Might Be Giants

“Tourist” by Jacob, from the CD “Just A Tourist Here”

    Standing in my garage listening to #59…I thought I was going to cry. I’ve been subscribed for awhile and love all your work but this one really moved me.
    Thank you.

  • You got me with this one. Your appreciation for the arts and sciences almost gave me Stendhal Syndrome.

    I was there! I was there when he lost it!!! AND during the same trip it happened to me too, in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, although it didn’t get me as hard as it got my Pop. It might have also had to do with the millions of stairs we climbed to get to the top of the cupola. Actually I think it hit me just before we did that, while we were just under the base of the cupola and I had been staring at the the ceiling for about 10 minutes.

  • Hi, the mp3 file seems corrupted from here. Is it so?
