This is not a music mix

in lieu of the fact that the music mixes are currently on hiatus i thought it would be a good idea to share some tunes with you that have been making my happy lately. nothing new here though, folks. i’ve only been entertaining the oldies.

bowie, golden years

this has pretty much been my theme song lately. i have listened to it every single day… sometimes on repeat. man! what i would give to be in that crowd, funking it up to bowie. please take notice of the dancers on the stages, they have the best moves! bowie is beautiful too. D A M N.

all day day light

you might have noticed the lack of new posts here today – due to the usual reasons (busy busy busy real life bla bla bla). well, i’ll leave you with at least a little something on this lovely friday, in honour of the noticeable change of season around here. here’s the music video for the morning benders song all day day light:

doo wop

my copy of the miseducation of lauryn hill was basically the soundtrack to my life when i was 15 (as well as the fugees, actually). to the point where not only did i know the words to all the songs, but i knew the words of the interludes of the children discussing things between each track. i am craving for her to make a comeback, big time. but who knows if that’s ever going to happen? for now i can take solace in one of my favourite ever music videos:

new goldfrapp music video directed by legs

Q: How would you describe this video in under 140 characters?

A: Goldfrapp leads Black Metal heads through sexed up aerobics – they are joined by neon nymphs who seduce and sacrifice them for rainbow blood.

when you’re gone

you probably enjoyed the musical stylings of the cranberries at some point in the mid nineties. i love their big hits as much as the next person (linger, dreams, zombie) … but when you’re gone has always been my favourite cranberries track. i had it on tape and played it over and over on my walkman. do you know how difficult that is to do with a tape? you have to rewind and then find the right place… oh man! but it was worth it.
