I almost choked on my Coco Pops when the party political broadcast for the Lib Dems came on the TV. There was Nick Clegg wittering on about “time for change” and all of that. It was of absolutely no interest, but I still kept staring at the broadcast, spellbound. Something was happening on a slightly subliminal level and an emotion was stirring.

One minute in and I knew what it was: under Clegg’s drone was a barely audible musical soundtrack. I knew the track. Why wouldn’t I? It’s the most-played song ever on my MP3 player and one of the most beautiful pieces of music you can ever hope to hear.

The track is An Ending (Ascent) by Brian Eno, his brother Roger, and Daniel Lanois – and a weird cult surrounds it. Few people have heard it, but those that have go into rhapsody about it.

And for anyone who would like to listen to this lovely piece of ambient music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKw5mbcE7VY
