N.E.R.D – Sooner or Later

Overlooked track from “Seeing Sounds.” Fresh.

Cut Copy – Lights And Music (Boys Noize Happy Birthday Remix)

This, Justice’s Electric Feel and The Twelves Not Gonna Teach Him Kickmix remix are very close runner ups for best remix of 2008.

Mystery Jets – Bleeding Love (Leona Lewis Cover)

Been running into some great covers lately. Here’s one of Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love.” Too good, more to come. Yes, he does look like Edward Scissor Hands in that picture.

Baby Huey – Hard Times

Best song from his Curtis Mayfield produced LP, “The Baby Huey Story: Living Legend.” I’m pretty sure this song is about a heroin addiction:

So many hard times/ Sleepin’ on motel floors, knocking on my brothers door/ Eatin’ spam and Oreos and drinkin’ Thunderbird baby…”

Most of the lyrics have a very dark, morbid and reflective overtone. The lead singer, Melvin “Deacon” Jones, died at age 26, you get the sense your dealing with someone well aware of his fate as you listen. High quality music.

“I’m a party house I’m afraid to come outside. Although I’m filled with love I’m afraid they’ll hurt my pride. So I play the part I feel they want of me, and I pull the shade so I won’t see them seeing me.

Baby Huey – Hard Times


Justice – Genesis (Live)

I can’t tell if I’m hearing a crowd screaming in excitement or shrieking in fear of some horrific event about to take their lives. Either way, nice track by some of the coolest cats around. Rock on.

Justice – Genesis (Live)


Martika – Toy Soldiers

Classic 80’s ballad. Hands down the best track from her 1988 self-titled debut album.

Step by step/ Heart to heart/ Left right left/ We all fall down, like toy soldiers”

Martika – Toy Soldiers


Eminem – Say Goodbye to Hollywood

“People shouldn’t be afraid of failure, they should be afraid of success.”

To say the least, life for the highly ambitious can be very complicated, bitter-sweet and full of irony. Say Goodbye to Hollywood, from the “Eminem Show” LP shows just how well Marshall understood this perspective.

I love my fans, but no one ever puts a grasp on the fact i’ve sacrificed everything I have.
I never dreamt I’d get to the level that I’m at. This is whack, this is more than I ever could of asked. Everywhere I go, a hat, a sweater hood, or mask. What about math? How come I wasn’t ever good at that…
Cause all I wanted was to give Hailie the life I never had, But instead I forced us to live alienated, so i’m sayin’
Goodbye Hollywood, please don’t cry for me, when I’m gone for good.”
