A Take Away Show Feat. Aloe Blacc

November 14, 2010

This is amazing. That’s all there is to it. As far as what I like personally, this is hitting on so many levels. I’m just gonna let the video speak for itself. I posted the second part of this because I particularly like “You Make Me Smile” and the cover of my favorite Bill Withers song “Use Me Up”. Part One is just as good so please check it out for the full experience.

“I Wanna Be Your Mother And Your Sister Too…”

July 9, 2010

Prince, even though you hate the internet, just know that there is a small part of it that still loves you.

I ain’t got no money
I ain’t like those other guys you hang around
And it’s kinda funny
But they always seem to let you down
And I get discouraged
‘Cause I never see you anymore
And I need your love, babe yeah
That’s all I’m living for, yeah
I didn’t wanna pressure you, baby
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I wanna be the only one that makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I wanna turn you on, turn you out, all night long, make you shout
Ow, lover! Yeah
I wanna be the only one you come for
I wanna be your brother
I wanna be your mother and your sister, too
There ain’t no other
That can do the things that I’ll do to you
And I get discouraged
‘Cause you treat me just like a child
And they say I’m so shy, yeah
But with you I just go wild!
I didn’t wanna pressure you, baby.
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I wanna be the only one that makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I wanna turn you on, turn you out, all night long make you shout
Ow, lover! Yeah
I wanna be the only one you come for, yeah

I don’t know how long this video will be up so enjoy it while you can before the Purple Police comes and shuts it down.

Answer Me

June 18, 2008

Ever hear a song and love it the first time you hear it? Okay. How about hear it months later and completely loving it more than you previously did? This, for me is one of those songs. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are arguably one of my favorite bands of all time. Only three albums deep and they seem to have captured a sound in soul not seen since the late 60’s/mid 70’s. The key seems to be not only their strict use of instruments and analogue recording equipment from the 70’s, but also their natural understanding of music from that era of funk/soul. I had no idea it was Sharon herself playing the piano on this! One of my favorite songs. No other band cooler than the Dap-Kings. Quote me on that.
