Goodbye Starman

As a tribute to David Bowie, I offer Chris Hadfield singing Space Oddity…in Space.

I saw David Bowie live once. He was amazing. Here’s to the Thin White Duke.

Song Obsession: (I’m the One That’s) Cool by The Guild

…And the song obsession I’ve has for the last 3 days (I watched the video, then immediately bought the song and I’ve been listening ever since) is: (I’m the One That’s) Cool by The Guild/Felicia Day. Fair warning for the sensitive (like me): this video shows depictions of bullying (seemingly from the memories of the characters). If this is something you might have trouble with, just listen rather than watch. The song is great. It’s a “Ha! Geeks are cool now!” anthem.

Luckily, I don’t think that anyone saw me rocking out in my cube.

Song Obsession: Abney Park – Steampunk Revolution

You may yet remember that I get obsessed with songs. Well…here is Sunday’s song obsession: Abney Park – Steampunk Revolution. I think I’ve listened to it 100 times already, and I can’t wait for the album to come out.

Why did I get obsessed by this one? Well, 1)I love Abney Park 2)I groove on the Steampunk aesthetic 3)The tune is catchy and I can dance to it (in my room…and possibly in my cube).

Day 26: Zbigniew Preisner – Van Den Budenmayer – Concerto In E Minor (SBI 152) Version 1798

And here, at last, is Z (just under the wire.) Zbigniew Preisner – Van Den Budenmayer – Concerto In E Minor (SBI 152) Version 1798 (from the soundtrack of La Double Vie de Veronique.) Simply put, this piece is glorious.

Happy New Year/Hogmanay all!

Day 24: XTC – King For a Day

High School flashback alert! (Well, for when I was in High School anyway.) My choice for X: XTC – King For a Day.

So…question: What would you choose for X? (Where the band needs to start with X.)

Day 22: Vienna Teng – Blue Caravan

Okay, with two weeks to go in the year, here is my choice for the letter V. Vienna Teng’s Blue Caravan is a melancholy exploration of a self-created reality. It’s also beautiful. Give it a listen and see what you think.

Day 21: Urbanized feat. Silvano – Helpless (from the film Jeffrey)

Remember how I said I wanted to finish this music thing by the end of the year? Well, here is my Letter U. Urbanized feat. Silvano – Helpless (from the film Jeffrey) was nigh impossible to find the correct version of. Everyone seems to think various remixes are the correct version. Sorry, none of those remixes do it for me. The version I want is the one from my Jeffrey soundtrack. Here it is. If you liked the film Jeffrey, you might enjoy the slideshow on the video. Otherwise, just enjoy the music.

Day 20: The Rope – Water to Wine

I promised myself that I’d finish the alphabet in music before the end of the year, so here, at last it “T.” Yes. I know. I’m totally cheating by counting the “T” in “The.”

I don’t care. This is my new music obsession (as of today) and this way I get to share it with you. Win-win, yes?

This is Water to Wine by The Rope, a recent band with a sound that harkens back to when I was in High School. I love it.
