"Into the Galaxy" by Midnight Juggernauts
"Slow Down" by The Feelies
from The Good Earth
"Bold and Black" by Melvin Jackson
from Funky Skull
(in honor of today's genre... funny, i just bought this today too.)
but, holy sh*t! starts out all regular and normal, right, but about 55 seconds in, it splits and frays into different tracks, some of which feel off (as in -key, on purpose?) like ship horns in the fog doing their own thing, while the funk moves on. what? but yeah.
"Trouble Will Remain" by Amnesty
from Free Your Mind: The 700 West Sessions
Spring is dangerous- the sun will put you in such a good mood that you might start strutting down the street all happy to a song like this (or that song about jellybeans and hmm, the end of the world). You'll be like, "Trouble? Oh yeah, yeah. Mmm. Yeah, just leave it on my desk. I'll get to it sometime this afternoon. Yeah. Cool, yeah." Then you'll hang up, "hey ha hey ha hey ha hey haaa..."
This is a Stones Throw reissue from 1973 (thanks DC for introducing me to their podcast btw).
"Groovy Girls Make Love at the Beach" by Gary Wilson
from You Think You Really Know Me
i was in this record store a little while ago, and this was on, and it sounded familiar, so i asked, then dug it out when i got home. my favorite that day was the aggro whoo!s (like those paper whistle things that roll right back, what are they called?). today it's all about the trembling lalalalas that wobble across the song. i imagine him alternately choking and throwing around the mike stand then drawing it real close before collapsing on the floor in a tangle of cords. hmm. not sure if i'd want to meet this guy, but i like hearing Groovy Girls Make Love at the Beach
"The Pirate Song" by The Goat That Went "Om"
from Can't Stop It! II - Australian Post-Punk 1978-82
Picked up about a month ago (recommended, along with the Avon comp from England). This track got me thinking Australia's a fine place. A recent dinner at the Tuck Shop (topped off with pale ale and koala cadburys) made moving there seem like a good idea. But it was this week's screening of Endless Summer II that. just. pushed. me. over. the. edge. Need warmer climes and sunny beaches... mmmmmm... In the meantime: put your feet hip-width apart, hands on waist, drop your chin, and go "arrr."
P.S. If anyone's heard Vol I do tell.
"Bir Anda" by Ajda Pekkan
OK, so you already know Selda, the voice of the masses. Now try Ajda a.k.a. Süperstar. Going on for decades, more outfits, incarnations, original hits and covers and albums (and nose jobs, facelifts, collagen...) than you can count. Here's one from 1982, off a best of comp but actually from this album:
"Bad Cover Version" by Pulp
from We Love Life
I couldn't pass up Orchestral Pop day! After much deliberation on who/what to post, here we go. The song is good in its faux-Eurovision entry/LiveAid-ness, but the video, oh the video... (Hear the song first)
Like the Stones since the Eighties:
"Sleepwalk" by Santo & Johnny
from The Best of Santo & Johnny
That amazing Kammerflimmer Kollektief track made my commute infinitely better and reminded me of this lovely ol' tune.
This would probably make the perfect soundtrack to going to bed late one night, and waking up to everything buried under a foot of snow (and no work to go to).* It may only be a dream, but I'm happy Sleepwalking...
* In waking life, it was a soundtrack to a Stephen King movie.
"Canção Postal" by Lô Borges
from Lô Borges
This recently resurfaced on my iTunes. Just plain... ah, so good.
