Maroon 5 – One More Night (Com Truise Remix)

Who can argue against starting your week off right with an upbeat synth jam worthy of both weekend debauchery and weekday pick-me-ups? Art director turned synth-producer Com Truise fires up Maroon 5’s sophomore single from their fourth studio release, “Hands All Over.” It’s a down-tempo electronic jam that is – in a word – sexy.

Adam Levine’s falsetto exudes sex. He has the vocal ability to simultaneously sound like he’s making love and shallowly hooking-up. Not to mention he’s an alt-pop-rock adonis. The driving guitar line is deep and low and seamlessly blends into Com Truise’s animalistic synth atmosphere. Hints of chopped n’ screwed bits sneak their way into Levine’s performance adding to the track’s dangerous undertones.

Perhaps it’s too early in the week to be thinking about these themes, but this track feels like it’d appropriately fit on a dirty, sensual, libido-fueled playlist; smack between tracks from The Weeknd and Goldfrapp. While it may be Monday, it’s no excuse to not let your mind wander a little bit into fantasy land. Oddly, this track’s got me all inspired to take advantage of the week rather than let the week take advantage of me. May it inspire you in its own way today, too.

Goldfrapp – Rocket (Penguin Remix)

The Geek: [about Samantha] She’s cranked for you. I told her you asked about her, right? The girl freaked. She had a hissy. She thinks you’re the cat’s meow!

Jake: Really? She came up to me in the gym tonight. She looked at me like I was a leper.

The Geek: Girls will do that, Jake. You know? They know that guys are like in perpetual heat, right? They know they shit, and they enjoy pumping us up. It’s pure power politics, I’m telling you.

Jake: I thought she hated my guts.

The Geek: Games, Jake. Silly torturous games. You know how many times I’ve gone without lunch because some bitch borrows my lunch money? Any halfway decent girl can rob me – blind! Because I’m too torqued up to say no. It’s heinous, I’m telling you.

Jake: You better not be dicking me around. It’d be a major downer to try and get together with this girl and find out that she really does think I’m a slime.

The Geek: Jake, would I dick you? Let me put it to you this way: what happens to me if I dick you?

Jake: I’ll kick your ass.

The Geek: Right! So why would I lie? But I feel compelled to mention to you, Jake, that if all you want of the girl is a piece of ass, I mean, I’ll either do it myself, or get someone bigger than me to kick your ass. I mean, not many girls in contemporary American society today would give their underwear to help a geek like me.

Jake: I can get a piece of ass anytime I want. Shit, I’ve got Caroline in the bedroom right now, passed out cold. I could violate her ten different ways if I wanted to.

The Geek: [almost chokes on a pretzel] What are you waiting for?”

– Sixteen Candles

Sixteen Candles has absolutely nothing to do with this song but as I listened to this remix I couldn’t help but think of all my favorite 80’s movies. I played it for my roommate and he mentioned 16 Candles and 93 minutes later I’m writing this post. Goldfrapp’s fifth studio album Head First is scheduled to be released on March 22 and is promising to be something very special. It’s a great Saturday morning in NYC and this nostalgic remix sets it off right, enjoy.
