Arranged in descending order of "hey this is interesting!"...
November 5, 2015
- Scrubs- Sanford and Son (Scrubs) - I just love this comedy bit, so I dumped this whole video as an MP3.
- Umbrella (Mechanical Bride) Latest I got in the "creep slow cover" genre.
- "YMCA" reworked to Minor key (Village People / Oleg Berg) When the Village People become villains in a video game, this is their theme music.
- Believe (Pomplamoose) I really like this cover of Cher's song... I love how much denial the lyrics carry.
- It's the Music (A.Skillz & Stickybuds Remix) (The Mighty Mocambos) A rare addition to my energy playlist. For a while I thought the refrain was "Stinky Butts" not "stickybuds".
- Fancy (Reba McEntire) A lovely song about a terrible situation
- Feeling Good (Bassnectar Remix) (Nina Simone) Strong Remix of great song.
- Radioactive (Pentatonix & Lindsey Stirling) Another cover, with a lot of strings.
- Keep Your Heart Young (Brandi Carlile) Good advice on a kind of country/western tip.
- Pay Attention (Pomplamoose) Cool original song (though I had to tell itunes to cut out the last bit, when it turns into a skit like thing)
- You're Not the One (Blood Diamonds Remix) (Sky Ferreira) Just some decent pop.
- Sat (Time) (Atlantic Brass Quintet) Instrumental
- Introdiction (Scroobius Pip) Kind of sophomoric (e.g. "In the end they are just words, you give them power when you cower man, it's so absurd" on the c-word) but some good stuff
- Fireball (feat. John Ryan) (Pitbull) - like "Girl on Fire", I'm left wondering "why is it ok to rhyme a whole phrase with itself as long as it ends with 'fire'" (as in "roof on fire")
