Venice in Peril

Have you ever had an image in your mind's eye? An image so real it has to be a memory, albeit a memory whose origins are lost in the haze of youth.

Ever since I can remember I've recalled an animation of Venice's final moments as the watery city falls into the sea while a string quartet with smooth faces of reflective glass played a classical piece.

Thanks to the magic of last.fm radio I'm no longer haunted. A piece by Rond˛ Veneziano reminded me of the Live at 3 theme tune back from old school RT╔?. When I went searching about the band, I indeed found out that the video for one of their songs. Nice to know I wasn't hallucinating though I still can't find the video.

Honestly, I'm sure I'm the only person I've ever met who knows what I'm talking about.

Damien - I know exactly what you mean! Just got back from venice, wondering why the words "Venice in Peril" kept ringing around in my head. In the car back in England in suddently came to me - the name of an album of music I hadn't listened to for, what, 20 years! Just trying to find the music online when I hit your site.
