Okay, so i woke up this morning singing the song that introduced me to vegan cuisine (i’m almost serious). From there, i began to think about all of the great TV show (typically cartoon) songs that i know by heart, even today. I’m pleased to share them here!
[On another note, i think i’ve uncovered another life goal for myself… to compose theme songs and background music for cartoons. Any filmmakers or cartoonists looking for music??!??!]
– Much Love
The Beets – “Killer Tofu”
So this song didn’t originate from the TV series, but it sure did embed this track in my heart as THE essential Kid ‘n Play tune
Who doesn’t like this one?!?
Taking it waaaay back with this one… 80s all day, baby!
I would lose my 80s baby card if i didn’t include these next two
Happy Sunday! This post is inspired by my recent introduction to Alice Clark. It all happened one sunny spring afternoon at a record store. She peered at me in a disinterested, though compelling way. I tried to ignore her, but found myself back at the records store two days later trying to find out more about this woman and her music. What i learned about Alice Clark’s music made me an instant fan! Even better, she introduced me to some other singers. This post provides a brief intro to some of these new additions to my playlist!
Happy Sunday, EVERYONE! As the new year gets going, i am excited to share some great events with you. One of them is a concert and dance party with the Zimbabwean pop star, Oliver Mtukudzi & The Black Spirits who will be whose Philadelphia debute is January 12, 2013! I have the honor of playing this show alongside DJs Lil’Dave and Junior of the Eavesdrop Radio crew!
As i begin preparing for this event, i’m listening to and channeling the vibe of some of my favorite Tuku tracks (see below), as well as many other great Zimbabwean artists, including Thomas Mapfumo, Netsayi, Audius, and Joseph Garakara & Mbama Express! If you’re in Philly, you will definitely want to attend this event! For now, please enjoy a few selections.
I’m digging in the crates (as usual) for some classic gems. As always, i’m overwhelmed with great music, but somehow managed to narrow my selections down to a bite-sized sample of what i’m listening to this week. I hope you enjoy it. Happy Ol’ Skool Sunday!
I just bought this Fela Kuti album from one of DuiJi 13’s (soon-to-be-famous) sidewalk record sales! The B-side, “Go Slow” has a CRAZY nice bass line that i can’t get outta my head. I would include it in this post if only i could find it on youtube. Oh well…
If you’re in Philly, be on the lookout for Señor Thirteen’s record sales in front of the A-Space. Happy Ol’ Skool Sunday!
