"Blue Christmas" Space Age Bachelor Pad Music Style

For many people, this music, called Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, is an unknown genre. It harkens back to old television theme songs for others, and sometimes is referred to as "lounge" music.  I have always been a fan of this genre, and have a rather large collection of artists that make this type of music.

Esquivel (Juan Garcia Esquivel) was a Mexican musician that devoted a lot of time to this style of music.  I remember dating this guy back in 1998, and he had a CD by Esquivel entitled, oddly enough, Space-Age Bachelor Pad Music.  Sadly, my boyfriend did not enjoy the CD and was glad to pawn it off on me.  I, on the other hand, was excited greatly to have this CD, which had been released around 1994. The cover alone was worth it.
