This is so good it kills me.
In my humble opinion that is the best of it. So good.
This is my new LP order from amazon. Yay!! This album came out in 1974 and is pretty funky if I must say. And I must!!! Get it? I have gotten my fair share of TOP albums throughout my years and this one is my favorite. I mean the other ones are good and all but they just don’t seem to cut it like this one. This is a great album to put on if you are trying to impress someone. Check it out.
There are certain things in life that bring you right back to your childhood. Like lets say eating ice cream off a cone could bring someone back to being a little kid. Not me cause ice cream gives me fast caca. Watching your favorite childhood movie should bring you right back to being a kid. How about We Sing In Sillyville. That is fun! So anyway, I was driving home on my hour commute from work and some Dying Fetus came on the car radio! As I was listening to the music, it brought me right back to high school. I used to drive to school with my younger brother early on the way to jazz band and make him endure the lovely sounds of Dying Fetus and Cannibal Corpse. I know he wasn’t that excited about it, but he was a good sport!
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy does a cover of this song on his album below.
Bonny ‘Prince’ Billy is an American singer/songwriter. Billy has been one of these artists that I was pretty sure I was going to like, but the curiosity was not intense enough to get me to really dive into it. One day a while back a dear friend of mine showed me a song off this album. Ask Forgiveness is a cover album except for one original. The list of covered artists is pretty amazing. His music is very relaxing and pleasant to listen to. Check out the track listing.
1. I Came Here to Hear the Music (Mickey Newbury)
2. I’ve Seen It All (Björk and Thom Yorke)
3. Am I Demon (Danzig)
4. My Life (Phil Ochs)
5. I’m Loving the Street (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy original)
6. The Way I Am (Mekons/Merle Haggard/Sonny Throckmorton)
7. Cycles (Frank Sinatra, written by Gayle Caldwell)
8. The World’s Greatest (R. Kelly)
I think this is really good idea.
For those of you who don’t know, Wham! is awesome. I know everyone likes to make fun of them for their flamboyant music videos and life style, but I think it is time for everyone to throw this macho facade to the side. Seriously, these songs are great dance songs. The other night I had a very intimate listen to Wham!. I was driving in my car on my way home in San Francisco listening to 98.1FM, the soul station and to my surprise, Careless Whisper came on the radio. I don’t know what came over me but I turned it up really loud and I almost started to cry. It was so emotional! One of those moments I probably shouldn’t be sharing. I always liked Wham!, but that was the moment I fell in love. Look at these great music videos and tell me you don’t love them!!
For some reason they cut the song short which is super annoying, but did you see the ending? Got to love a man in uniform. Oh, how about this one? I posted this video in an earlier post.
Hey Jerk You Work! Okay one more! I really like the bridge in this one!
Okay seriously these songs are really good. I didn’t post the obvious songs because everyone knows those ones. I am talking about Wake Me Up Before You Go Go and Careless Whisper. Oh my god, I just listened to Careless Whisper again while I was setting up that link I almost started crying in my beer! That song is too good. Everyone should have their album, The Final. It has all the above songs and much more! Enjoy!!!
