Bananas


Not his best movie ever, but in it we see a sound evolution of Woody's love for 30's and 40's jazz. It goes from slapstick silly in "Bananas" to romanticism in "Annie Hall" to epic Gershwin pieces featured in Manhattan. Man loves city. City loves music.

Do you notice this thing happening with people and their computers and everyone becoming a DJ?

Ice cream on a red hot stove


Okay guys, you don't know cool until you've heard this song and it's vocal range.

Jackson 5

I'll Bet You

....and exhale:

These are not pretty musicians



Good thing too, I don't like my musicians pretty.

Everlasting Light

This is a song by The Black Keys.

What else can I say other than I love it?

I ain't worried and I ain't scurried


Have a Good Time

I should be depressed, my life's a mess, but I'm havin' a good time.

I ain't worried and I ain't scurried.

Le clan des Siciliens



John Zorn -- avant-garde composer and also former of a punk band in the 80's. However this song is a cover of Ennio Morricone's The Sicilian Clan. Zorn/Morricone (pictured respectively) make a lovely pairing. I want to see this movie now (a french film by Henri Verneuil from 1969). Check out the trailer with what looks like the original Robert DeNiro:

The hand of the devil is warm in the night





Okay, so. Here is a song and a half. More like a song and a video, both courtesy of that lovely gentleman at gvb. The song is cave grill and the band is arch m.

Two more treats from gorillavsbear: this beach housey song called Outer Limits by SLEEP OVER.

And lastly, I love this Terry Gilliam-esque video. It's like watching paper dolls come to life:
By the way, this should have been the U2 song, because it's fucking radical -

Munchies, or: Get Your Snack On



I am a bad blogette. I neglect blogly duties. But that can all be fixed by listening to this mind bending wizardry:

Elvis Viles


Who can resist Elvis? Not I. Those lips, those sideburns, that mascara! (in some cases). He really is a gorgeous man with an even more gorgeous voice. I've always liked this song - Surrender - and someone put a lurvely little video together for the song. Long live the king.

In Through the Out Door



Fool in the Rain :: Led Zeppelin

That's right, it's an obscure, whistle blowing infused rarity. Raise your hand if you hate when DJ's say they're pulling the led out...

That's someone raising BOTH their hands. I know, I'm endlessly entertaining.

Ever heard of a little show called Soul Train?

loudon



Loudon Wainwright III: father of Rufus and Mary, actor, singer, and tamer of shetland ponies, the man is a legend. He's been around since the 40's and he's even appeared on a Scorsese soundtrack. Anyone who is a III is a well established individual indeed.
