October 2, 2015Music I added last month... 4-stars in red, the first four videos are worth a watch.
- Downtown (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) -- fun song, bringing in a few different genres, beautifully. The video is cool too, especially the chariot of motorcycles.
- Like a Boss (Amy Kucharik) I saw this artist busking at Davis Square before a School of Honk event... actually I played along on tuba with her ukelele. This video has lots of fun business-speak innuendo.
- Epic Rap Battles of History - Everything's a Product (Honest Movie Trailers) - funny mini-parody of "Everything is Awesome"
- This Land is Your Land (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings) Crazy good R+B cover of a fantastic song.
- The Noncommittal Love Song (Amy Kucharik) -- shades of Weird Al's "You're the woman that I've always dreamed of -- Well not really, but you're good enough for now"... but with more ukelele.
- Inertia Creeps (Massive Attack) A dark electronic-ish piece with some middle eastern overtones.
- I Am Mine (Pearl Jam) This song had big signifigance in this tragic story of a 38 year old with Alzheimers.
- Hand Clapping Song (The Meters) Some nice R+B
- Suplex (feat. Northern Voice) (A Tribe Called Red) I dig the blend of first people's music with some modern stuff
- Worth It (feat. Kid Ink) (Fifth Harmony) Cool klezmer-y bits
- Wanna B Ur Lovr ("Weird Al" Yankovic) Weird Al takes on Prince. Leaving a nation asking... "she has yugoslavian hands"? What?
- Goin' Up the Country (Canned Heat) Weird surfer-ish 60s bit.
- Tetris (Seinfeld Remix)(SynaMax) burbly cover of the old russian folksong, known to a million gameboys.
"It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any."
--Hugh Laurie (just to have it in text)
