This is one of Baxters best songs, although there are many incredible Les Baxter pieces, this one really stands out from the rest. The title 'Sunken City' is perfect, you really feel like you are floating in the bright blue ocean, searching for a lost city. The instruments Baxter chose for this song are interesting; oboes, a haunting choir along with some vibraphones and piano chords, the result is however amazing.
Listen to this song late at night with the lights dimmed.

Does it get more relaxed than this? Luscious strings with vibraphones and a trombone in the background. This is the ultimate cocktail party song for the ultimate 'Bachelor themed' movie, too bad it isn't available on DVD yet.
