Dr. Dre – Let Me Ride

When Jimmy Iovine (Chairman of Interscope) signed Dr. Dre he said he knew nothing about rap music, in fact he didn’t like it. Yet he was so taken by Dre’s production and sound quality that he couldn’t pass it up.

“Let Me Ride” is off of Dre’s 1992 LP “The Chronic”, produced during his G-Funk era, it has funky bass line & great drum groove. Turn it up.

Hearts Revolution – Ultra Violence

Some more 8-Bit Nintendo music for your ears. Coincidentally, another boy-girl group called Heart’s Revolution. So far they’ve only released the Switchable EP. Check ‘em out.

The Virgins – Rich Girls

A friend from London put me on to this song today. Great bass line, cool video.

Can’t help but think of the Hall & Oats take on this subject while listening to this, here it is for those who may not know it or need refreshing.

Frank Sinatra – It Was A Very Good Year

“When I was 17, it was a very good year. It was a very good year for small town girls and soft summer nights, we’d hide from the lights, on the village green, when I was 17…

“When I was 21, it was a very good year. It was a very good year for city girls who lived up the stair, with all that perfumed hair, and it came undone, when I was 21…”

Classic Sinatra.

Crystal Castles – 1991

Here’s some 8-Bit Gameboy sounding dance music for you. These guys are from Toronto, their self titled album was released in March of this year. Very nostalgic, innovative and cool sounding.

Thin Lizzy – Running Back

This Thin Lizzy classic always puts me in a good mood. You have to love Phil Lynott’s smooth, soulful voice.

“I never thought you’d go, till you did, believe me.”

Joan Jett – Bad Reputation

Here’s my favorite brunette Joan Jett with “Bad Reputation”, the rebel anthem.

“Oh no no no no no, not me me me me me.”

P.S. This song was used as the theme song for the greatest show about high school ever – “Freaks & Geeks.” For those into Judd Apatow & Seth Rogan (Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, etc), that’s the show they produced before people caught on to their humor. James Franco, Jason Segal, their all in it. Great show.

Johnny Cash – The Man Comes Around

Trying to describe this wouldn’t do it justice, just listen. Incredible production courtesy of the one and only Rick Rubin.

Classic.

Warning: Not safe for work.

This is like Justice’s “A Cross The Universe,” on crack. The track is by The Bloody Beetroots.

Rock & Roll anyone?


The Deadly Syndrome – Eucalyptus

I saw these guys out in LA a while back, they have an amazing live show, check them out if you haven’t.

This song is from their 2007 release, “The Ortolan.” What hooked me in was the vibe. Pretty good album too.
