Listening Post



I realize this video thing is getting old, but I'm kind of busy right now. Hope to have something worthwhile up later today or tomorrow morning.

Until then, the perfect Friday song -- from one of the best neo-soul albums around.

Here's the Brand New Heavies, featuring the luscious N'Dea Davenport on vocals, with Dream On Dreamer.

I *love* BNH. I practically wore this ablum out. Heck, this song was playing during my wedding while we cut the cake.

Busy?! WTF? Geez, you act like you just got a new kid or something...

Plus which, we're still getting good value for our money.

This is where I direct you to the little electronic tip cup off to the right and/or the link to buy a copy of my book. This site will always be free -- it's still a blog, after all -- but if you like what you see, feel free to treat the author who puts so much time and effort into it to a small reward.

Or not.

Second CD I ever bought right here.

First one was a John Scofield jazz disc because it had a cool picture of a guitar on it.

Spiderbait - Glokenpop

Singing is easy if you can remember the tune
It can be something to do on a bright afternoon
Sing in the sunshine and whistle a sweet melody
I'm singing for you and I hope that you're singing for me

Just try to remember
Words go together
Songs last forever
Nothing can be too clever
For you

You can be happy when everyone's singing your song
And think of the cash you can make when they all sing along
It doesn't matter if all of your songs sound the same
Cos people are happy to hear them over and over and over again

Just try to remember
Words go together
Songs last forever
Nothing can be too clever
For you

Singing a song
Walking along
I'm singing for you
I hope that you sing for me too

Time to swallow your acid, Aaron.

Ghetto Puppets - My Mind Is Playing Tricks On Me!

I remember this song from my clubbing days back in the early 90s. For about 91 to 93 I lived in the clubs from Boca Raton to down well south of Miami. I had no money, I had no job, but I had a new girlfriend every month. :-)

We'd start at Baja Beach Club at midnight, then down to South Beach where there were some fabulous places, whose names I can't recall, places to dance or see music or both, Jamaican clubs, Soca clubs, merengue and Carnaval. It's no understatement to say that those experiences opened my eyes to the world in a way I couldn't have imagined before them.

I really had no idea that the world was filled with so many beautiful women. And after making this discovery, I surely would have been content to spend the rest of my life dancing and sleeping with as many beautiful women as I possibly could before I die. Personally I don't think a man could find a better way to spend his time on earth, if that makes me shallow and vacuous, so be it, in my view beautiful girls make the world go round. If it wasn't for them, men would never do anything, at least heterosexual men, we just wouldn't have any real motivation.

Finding a good dance partner is very comparable to finding someone you have good sex with, it's a rare and precious thing. Also the two kind of go together, girls who dance good usually fuck good as well. I distinctly remember it was during this time that I began to judge women specifically on the quality of their ass, and their ability to move it. I like to move it move it! I still judge women the same way. :-) Nothing gets my attention quicker than a woman who knows how to move.

I don't regret one minute of that time, the only thing I regret are the girls I didn't get to dance with, and the women I didn't get to sleep with. Ahhh to be young again.

Aaron, you know I love you, man -- but I hope your taste in women is better than your taste in music (with the exception of the KLF). Never did the dance club thing myself.

Chez said...

Actually, I take that back. I went to Groove Jet and Liquid on South Beach for awhile back in the late 90s.
