Ok month for music to start the year. You GOTTA watch the alternate video for TOO MANY ZOOZ.
February 3, 2016
- Spocktopus (TOO MANY ZOOZ) This is the 3-musician version of this mind blowing sax-dance video. A real inspiration to my tuba dancing
- Last Night in Texas (The Maverick Mikel Knight) The guys got some fascinating (if sketchy) bootstrap business practices, but this is one catchy bit of hick-hop.
- Extended Funky Chimes (Sesame Street) JP Honk is putting together a cover of "Sesame Street", and two of the members were super-psyched to make an ending for it based on this great bit of bumper music.
- Genghis Khan (Miike Snow) Good example of a modern indie rock vibe, with a really fun video.
- All You Fascists Bound to Lose (Nina Hagen) I couldn't find Woody Guthrie doing his own songs, so I have a (different) version of this German actress.
- La La La (Brazil 2014) (Shakira/Carlinhos Brown) Theme for the recent world cup. I like the percussion.
- Caramel (Suzanne Vega) This song was languishing with 2 starts 'til I randomly heard it at the end of a trailer for the movie "Closer"
- I Like It Like That (Pete Rodriguez) A classic.
- Sad (Bo Burnham) Funny- at least watch the first 15 seconds. His book of poetry is good too, very Shel Silverstein-y...
- Mercy, Mercy, Mercy (The Buckinghams) I'm surprised I didn't find this version when i was looking for covers, when JP Honk added it to their repertoire.
- Hey Na Na (Galactic) Funky!
- Jessie’s Girl (Mary Lambert) Very sweet cover.
- Superbad (Top Dogz) Love how those horns come in!
