211: -( F.O.R.N.I.C.A.T.E. )- - - - -(vol.3)-

Hi.
Being the last day of 2008 and all,
I thought the theme of today, well, obvious,
had to be something we all like and like to do,
had to have a bit of let's say some "make-sense
new-year's resolution suggestions" too...
and ofcourse,
had to be just be plain silly f*ckin' brilliant...
at the same time...
So,
forget about quitting the smokes,
forget about leaving that last one in the fridge,
forget about all the negative
and just let's be a little bit nicer to one another :-)
-
oh, and let's not forget:
enjoy this 2 hour workout
and remember to come as you are!

209: happy holidays...



Hi.
As for the holidays of 2008,
the closing of the year and all that jive,
I wanted to do a seasonal greetings mix-comp
But I changed my mind (a little bit) and put in
some (of the) crazy stuff (that surrounds us daily).
-
All in all, it has become a diverse, decent mix,
which will satisfy some of my listeners I hope.
-
I wish everybody all the best possible for the next year,
good health and mental well-being,
along with some love and understanding,
the occasional happy moments
and ofcourse all the musical madness one can dream of!
-
Maybe now is a good time to say a thank you
for all the support I received here,
a yet bigger thank you to all the
truly inspired & dedicated bloggers out there,
and a global BIG thank you to all the musicians,
who's work brightens up my day & night!

E-mile suggested me to make an intervention about "paint it black" concerning some recent developments in the "white" house...
I almost evocated the topic while posting
Parliament/Chocolate city.
It was so subtile it was hidden.
But you can bet George Clinton is still in this one.

First : Comma or not comma?
Paint it Black.
Paint it, Black.
I vote for Paint it Black Panther.

Black Panther and Captain America

Moreover, everybody knows the Rolling Stones have never been a rock'n roll band.
They always played rythm 'n' blues.

Anyway, the job has been already done in a one piece mix with talking.
(For die hard collectors only).

So paint it my way in 33 messianic foo tracks.
Now you can see clear in my politics.

Go on original :



Go on karaoke :



Go on with Ludacris :




With a little green help for my friends,
Thanks E-mile.

the Ode To Billie Joe-thing...

103: I Got It Covered!

Hi.
Today a selection of GREAT covers!
-
Never thought that an Arctic Monkey's song could be THIS funky!
The whole Baby Charles album is funky as hell btw!
-think Alice Russell kinda quality-
Ofcourse the Mingus song by Jeff Beck is standing strong,
the song originally was a tribute to the late Lester Young.
-
The surf classic gets the "plenty of horns" NCC live workout,
always nice, at once I'm back in Pulp Fiction ...
-
And yes, even a Gibbs brothers song can be done the right way,
as this version by these guys from Spo Dee O Dee prooves.
-
Lou Reed's most famous song gets a very jazzy,
mellow & laidback treatment from a great sounding lady and band.
-
Finally a guy doing one of the songs Bobby Gentry was famous for.
-
Enjoy
-
-
Also for this one I don't know who's kneecaps were hurt
by putting out these ten great covers,
but that's the way blogger treats us music lovers I guess...
-
I wish everybody had a collection that comes close to
all the LP's & CD's that I bought over the years
no musicians would be hurt, I'm sure.
P.E.A.C.E.
