422: Watermelon Man


Hi.

A long time ago somebody suggested to pick the Watermelon Man
song by Herbie Hancock for a E-mile Says post.
Today it's time for a 4 hour 25 minutes answer to that request.
This song is covered so many times, it might even top Summertime!
Would it?
Well, whatever, here's a small selection of cover versions
I gathered for your listening pleasure/terror...
It's a rather diverse bunch, with Hammond, WahWah,
Horns, Strings, Sweet Vocals and what not.
It also bounces through time, as this is a CLASSIC tune [:-)
Hope you enjoy it & have some fun!

418: R.I.P. Rex 2000 - 2014

 Hi.
Today I post a sad post.
I had to say goodbye to Rex, my 14 and and a bit border-collie.
I decided to put him to rest, he had multiple skin issues, driving him crazy,
was going blind and deaf, in short, not the dog he was ment to be...
(for many, many years he was, working his ass off, doing tricks & chores)
Though I know I made the right decision, it still feels awfull.. 
I stayed with him till the very last heartbeat, feeling very sad, 
but also somehow relieved he was going to a better place.
So in his honour, a follow up on the dog-theme.... 


A pic of his final moment,
a few minutes before he died....

416 : Right On The Money, vol.6


Hi.

Today a follow-up on the money theme.
Or rather, the lack of it coming my way lateley.
Out of a decent paying job for over 6 months
left me quite, eh well, poor....
I got a roof over my head, my dogs & cats get their food,
and I ain't starving either, don't get me wrong,
but it's been a while I could afford to see live music,
treat my girl on a night out and so on.
I also need new shoes, a new bicycle and a way to pay my
medical bills and the annual taxes....
Maybe I'll start going to the "bingo" and maybe I get lucky?
[:-)
Naah.
For today you can enjoy a motherlode of money minded music,
the Pink Floyd tune gets covered a few times ofcourse,
and all in all this 50 tracks, 3 hour & 50 minute mix
is a rather good investment to forget about any discomfort,
platinum, visa or gold plated lies included [:-)

And before I forget, there's a very special sumting extra
in the comments, a little bonus from a bunch of CEO's
(yes that means Chief Executive Officer's) I hold in HIGH regard,
some guys who paid their dues and are still kicking it off in 2014!

So, don't be late, don't hesitate or even start to contemplate,
just grab the cash & have fun with the extra stash...

Hi.

Welcome to a wonderful one hour feeling good version fiesta!
If this mix doesn't lift your spirits for 2014,
I don't know what will.....

makes me wonder if the Miss Simone version
is the "first", or just just the one most familiar?
Does any of you know who recorded the "original"?
I don't & I don't want to loose time over it,
googling my ass of; I got better things to do,
like keeping up with my new year's resolution and
figure out what post is next on E-mile Says [:-)
Use the search function for all the previous

411: my new year's resolution


hi.
First of all,
I want to wish you all the very, very best possible
for the new year.
I myself took it upon me to post here more (often)
in smaller doses, and cut the crap, 
just plain more frequently!

To start this off, I choose carefully an 1 hour mix
of tunes that have no bounding theme whatsover,
something you JUST might (not) expect from me?

Well, it's all done in that well-mannered taste you
dear readers & listeners grew accumstomized to,
so, before I post a new one, I'd say:
enjoy this theme-less bunch of early celebrations,
and I'll be back to my usual thematical terrorized 
terror soon. Promised. . . . 

meanwhile, enjoy this one hour mix
I hope it fills your fix!

Let´s set sail for 2014, a year that is gonna  scratch the 7 years´s 
existance of this little blog in a good way!

2-Don Cavalli - You And My Zundapp (2:25)
3-Gypsy - Is That News (3:17)

410: Best wishes for 2014 and let's have it for miss Rigby [:-)


Hi.
Finally a new, proper post....
I know, I can add excuse upon excuse, but in the end
it's just me NOT posting new thematical terror.
Be reassured, I got stacks and stacks stashed away, 
me not posting new stuff ISN'T the same as me not
keeping my ears & mind open for this little blog.

This year's last post is a 2 hour, 25 song version fiesta
of the immortal fab four tune about that crazy lady
who couldn't afford to buy Uncle Ben's in the cornershop...

One of my fab 4 favourites, along with Here Comes The Sun,
Something and of course Come Togehther....

I hope you enjoy all these 25 versions and 
interpretations, two of my mos favs here are the very 
soulful rendition by Messengers Inc. and the one by Trudy Pitts.

I wish you all a good 2013-2014 celebration,
and I promise I'll be back soon here with more stuff,
also more often and always within the high
E-mile Says standard you guys & dolls grew
accustomed to [:-)
