Interesting month for music. A lot of rips I made myself and a fair amount of religious-y stuff. Here in reverse chronological order, 4 star stuff in red.
November 2, 2016
- Talk To Me (Run The Jewels) Man are the guys intense. Impressed how Adult Swim is releasing this stuff.
- Ha Ha Ha Ha (Yeah) (White Denim) Nice R+B tip.
- Puma (Andrew Bird). This was on Public Radio; light pop feel to a serious subject, when you have to be isolated because of thyroid surgery stuff...
- GRAB'm by the PU$$Y (will.i.am ft Apl.de.ap and Liane V) Best election season song. So funny when they break the structure of the song to have Black Trump talks over his opponent.
- A Cimma (La Fanfare Invisible) I made my own mp3 from this video, of this band from Paris I marched with HONK! weekend - a few days earlier at a joint parade we stopped at a funeral, and they played this song. It has such big emotion for me, the seen of the new widow dancing with a relative on their porch... this song complements it perfectly.
- Waiting for My Real Life to Begin (Colin Hay) Another deep song, from "Scrubs"
- Whirled Beat (WashingMachineDrummerKid) Another mp3 I made - kids got rhythm! I just love the sound of it.
- Right On (feat. Ms. Charm Taylor) (Galactic) More great funk.
- One Step Beyond (Madness) Someone propose JP Honk cover this. Took me a while to reassure myself the it's "The Nutsiest Sound Around" and not the "Nazi-est"
- Raw (San Holo) Also had to look lyrics up, I guess it's "We Can Feel Us". Not sure if it's meant to sound like "We Can Feel Loss" as well.
- Todo Mi Vida (Pueblo Cafe) More latino hiphop from the end of "Silicon Valley". With tuba!
- Wolverine: Adamantium Rage Boss 2 Tri-Fusion A friend said this predates a certain musical genre. The version I ripped from youtube much better than the "8 bit arcade" version I paid for.
- A cimma (Fabrizio De Andrè) The original of that song I mentioned above. This page translates and explains it.
- Prince Ali (Nick Santa Maria and The Ensemble of Aladdin). Realized I wanted this song, it's fun to sing. Bummed this version says it "swords" and not "swo-ords"
- Carioca (Jonathan & Darlene Edwards) A kind of parody song used for the credits for "Kentucky Fried Movie". Love the "It has a met-- it has a meter that is tricky"
- Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho (Mahalia Jackson) Thinking about suggesting this for my honk band.
- Hallelujah (John Cale) Got this version from scrubs but I guess some people know it from Shrek.
- They'll Know We Are Christians (Star Lake Music Camp) I had this version on a tape, from Salvation Army's Star Lake Music Camp 1991 - I lost the tape but my friend Eric Dinah had a copy he ripped for me. The minimalist beat and piano has always stuck with me, and I think it's an excellent aspiration for Christians.
