Here is da source from this mix - from Sesame street too as some of it was used in tracks "Aquarius" and "Colour of the fire".
I hate this guy - he missed original alfaquest song cos it sounds like "Barney and his friends" :x
And there is no other videos on youtube with this song - can anybody find another video with this original song for feedback? :)

I like the alpha quest version more than the original :D

I remember tripping with some friends in the woods a couple of years ago. We were talking about music and somebody brought up Boards of Canada and that letter M thing from Peel session interview. Then we spent a long time talking about letters, which ones are our favourite, what do we imagine them look and act like etc. Oh, well, you can probably guess how it went.

But recently, while doing some research for school, I stumbled upon a thing called phonaesthesia/phonosemantics. It's a branch of linguistics that refers to the idea that written representations of sounds carry meaning in and of themselves (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_symbolism).

This has nothing to do with anything, I just remembered it now when I saw you mentioning the letter M being Sandison bros. favourite.

Me and my friends went through the whole alphabet that night. Good times. My memory is fuzzy, but we figured that the letter "M" has this feminine mother personality to it.

Well, don't mind me, lol, I've had a few beers.

To make my post worthwhile, here's a squirrel from Banff National Park:
