I love browsing the used CDs at CD World, especially the odds & ends rack. They actually had a copy of The Waltons' Lik My Trakter (which I didn't buy because I already have one) for $2.95. Today, I came away with a cool CD from World Market called World Groove with covers of songs like "Jumpin' Jack Flash" by Ananda Shankar (Indian pop) and "James Bond Theme" by The Surf Champlers (Okinawan pop). The other one was 18 Grooves from&hellip the Wild Side with songs like "Fool's Gold" by the Stone Roses and "All Together Now" by the Farm (songs I became familiar with from Canadian radio from the mid-80s to early 90s). $2.95 a piece!

...and I just saw that Witchblade is available on DVD in July! W00T!

Only 65%???

You Scored 65% Correct
You are a solid child of the 80s
You'd never confuse Tiffany from Debbie
And while you may not know Prince's first #1 hit
You know every word to Little Red Corvette

I want to know which ones I got wrong! I demand a rematch! ;)

I just caught the end of Bravo's Live Earth presentation. Duran Duran (doing "Girls on Film", dude!!) at Wembley; The Police at Giants Stadium. I think people could hear the squee three blocks away.
peppermintesse: (Rock on!)
...what an amazing album this is.
peppermintesse: (OMG)
Was just sucking tracks into iTunes from BNL's yellow tape and Moxy Früvous' indie tape again (because I discovered I hadn't before) when I realized: these songs are at least 15 years old. I remember going into House of Records in Buffalo while in college and seeing stacks upon stacks of the yellow tapes for sale.


ETA: Fair warning: Mercury Retrograde coming up on the 14th. Whee.

Well, okay, maybe not as bizarre as in Fred Meyer last night.

Went out for brunch, and in the waiting area in the pancake house the TV was on. It was tuned to some kind of ice show, people skating in a choreographed sort of way but not in competition... and the Barenaked Ladies were playing out there on the ice. (Seriously. This sounds dream-like, but I have witnesses.) The sound was off so I couldn't tell what it was they were playing, and the Bank of Montreal ad on the side of the rink kinda clued me in that it was happening in Canada, but... it seemed so randomly strange. I have no idea what I was seeing. Anyone have a clue?

Hello, 80s.

I have now restored the original track listing of In My Tribe in iTunes!

Okay, I can totally understand why the Maniacs took off the track (to protest Cat Stevens' support of the fatwah against Salman Rushdie) but there was just a great gaping hole without that song after "Don't Talk". My brain was just... expecting it to be there.

Uploaded onto the iPod last night: Music for the Masses (except for the last 4 songs aka the songs on side B of the tape) by Depeche Mode and In My Tribe by 10,000 Maniacs (the rereleased version minus "Peace Train", which I am working on acquiring), both of which I listened to almost non-stop in high school and college. Now to decide which to listen to this morning during my commute (aka the walk to the bus station). Considering I've had "What's the Matter Here?" stuck in my head since last night, I'm thinking the latter.

I am eating chocolate ice cream for breakfast. Throat is sore—not so sore that I think it's strep, but enough that I kept waking up during the night. Zzzzz.

Two more days 'til Friday, and next week's work week is only 3 days long. Halle-freakin'-lluia.

Oh, after a course of antibiotics, Rowan (eldest kitty) is back to her ol' wheezy self. Yay!

Corky & the Juice Pigs perform "Eskimo" on MadTV.

I love youtube.

This time I need a song with the word "party" in the title or a party theme that's obvious in the title -- more of a summer party feel and not a frat party feel. The only ones I can think of are "Party Out of Bounds", "Garden Party", "Get the Party Started" and "Dead Man's Party", none of which are quite right.

And for the person (maybe [ profile] jessruth?) who suggested "Feels Like Home" for my 'homecoming'-themed request: who was the artist again? ETA: Never mind, found it: Chantal Kreviazuk.

I dare you to listen to this and not boogie.

(Lyrics in Farsi and Urdu.)
peppermintesse: (Allegory)
The songs "Happy Hour" by the Housemartins, "Tubthumping" by Chumbawumba, and "Closing Time" by Semisonic? Make a great triple set.
peppermintesse: (Curious)
Song, from the 70s, the chorus sounds like "medieval woman" -- maybe that is the actual lyric? Don't know. Anyway: name of song? Artist? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

ETA: The reason I ask I'm certain that a bit of that song is in the Pussycat Doll's "Beep". Which, BTW, is a great song. :)
