Here's something probably only a few of you will find even remotely exciting, but *I* think it's awesome, so HUMOR ME: I've managed to get my mitts on the complete playlist from Toothsome's Chocolate Emporium!
Toothsome's is the new steampunk-themed restaurant and "dessert foundry" here in Orlando, and they play THE best collection of steampunk music I've ever heard. (You might remember how I raved over the music in my photo tour.) It's upbeat and jazzy and just plain fun. John and I've eaten at Toothsome's over half a dozen times now (I know, it's a hard life we lead,) and each time I hear new, fantastic songs, but Shazam hasn't always been able to identify them.
BUT NOW I KNOW ALL THE SONGS. Mwah-ha-haaa!
Before you go imagining an Ocean's 11-style heist, I should probably mention one of the managers very sweetly gave me the entire 3-page print out of their playlist.
Then I went the extra mile, and made a Youtube playlist of nearly every song on the list, IN ORDER. Aw yeah service! Have a chocolate milkshake while you're listening, and you're practically there.
Sadly there are some songs missing, because 2 of the albums weren't on Youtube. Still, you get 70 songs out of the 87, so not too shabby!
You can start listening here:
If you click over to the whole playlist you can see all the names, artists, and albums. I can tell you now, though: craziest thing on there? Chocobo's Theme from Final Fantasy 3. Ha! Someone had a lot of fun researching and compiling this thing.
For you completionists, here are the missing albums I couldn't find on Youtube:
Paris Nights, by 615 Music
I love Paris! Classic Gypsy Swing, by Café Chill Lounge Club
And finally, since I wanted them for me anyway, here are the other most heavily used albums from the playlist. Most are compilations, so it's still a wide variety of artists:
(Links to Amazon, where I just discovered you can stream it for free with Amazon Prime. Nice!)
White Mink, Vol 3 (also free to stream for Prime members!)
I hope this gives you guys some fun new tunes to explore! Now I'm fighting back the urge to throw a steampunk dessert party. :D
