We interrupt your regular schedule to bring you this musical interlude, the first of a semi-regular posts sharing whatever I happen to be listening too at the time.

The music for today comes from the recently released game, Fallout 3, set in the post apocalyptic irradiated ruins of Washington DC, where you battle to live against raiders, mutants and other such dangers.

While this is going on, a radio station plays on in the background, with its DJ, Three Dog (Because one dog isn’t enough, and two dogs is too low, its Three Dog, arrrooowww).

Now the music that comes across is what you would never expect.  It comes from the 40s and 50s.  Yes, that is correct.  It may sound incongruous, but for those who have played the game, they know just how well it fits.

It is also turning a generation onto the music of their grandparents and great grandparents and many are finding, strangely, that they like it.

So here are two of those songs for your entertainment and edification.

The Ink Spots – I Don’t Want To Set The World On Fire

Bob Crosby and the Bobcats – Way Back Home
