1 fév. 2008, 23h19m par SongfactsFrom inspiring to bewildering, the 2008 presidential candidates are trying a variety of songs on the campaign trail. We rate them on their selections and give you the Songfacts.
#1) Barack Obama
Move On Up - Curtis Mayfield
City of Blinding Lights - U2
Think - Aretha Franklin
(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher - Jackie Wilson
Lovely Day - Bill Withers
Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours - Stevie Wonder
Mayfield's classic "Move On Up" is as uplifting as they come, and the kids will relate to it through Kanye West's rewrite, "Touch The Sky." U2 is always reliable, and Aretha's "Think," while it is directed at a romantic interest, gives crowds a chance to yell "Freedom!" Obama took some heat for "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," as it implied the arrogant air of inevitability he criticized Clinton for, but it's a Soul classic, as are his other selections. Interesting that he's the only candidate using much black music.
10 déc. 2007, 15h52m par rockosmodurnlifSo I really haven't created a theme journal like those "how mainstream are you" or "be negative about your top 20" journals so this is mine. It's based on what I call the morning song which is the first song of the day. Not everyone works during the day. So morning song is just a term. By definition I'd like to say it's the first song you play after waking up. What I mean is this song is the song is one you actively seek to play. It can be a song you wake up to if it is part of a playlist specifically made for that purpose and not a random choice. It can be the song that drags you from the wonderful, wonderful land of sweet dreams and back to harsh reality or the one you play after you've gone through your morning routine and it's time to face the world.
I came up with five off the top of my head. I listed them below and did a brief explanation. This is not a playlist but five separate songs to illustrate my meaning. There is no ranking to the songs.
1 oct. 2007, 7h59m par ilikegreydaystoday lea and i took our homework outside and i fell asleep on the grass, but before i did i looked at the sky and the clouds were beautiful. and i heard the following on my ipod before falling asleep with my film book wide open.
Stairway to Heaven
Casimir Pulaski Day
Gamble Everything For Love
but now that i look at my playlist, i realise that the most appropriate song would have been:
well, maybe the next time.
9 avr. 2007, 19h01m par toasterhead2kI was sitting here listening to Lovely Day by Bill Withers and had a great merchandising idea. Someone needs to market a series of t-shirts and coffee mugs and perhaps bibs or license-plate covers with the catchphrase HEY, FUCK OFF -- I'M LISTENING TO BILL WITHERS!.
It could probably work with other artists too, such as Death from Above 1979 or Boards of Canada or The Tenmen or James Taylor but I think none of these have quite the punch or convinctage of "HEY, FUCK OFF -- I'M LISTENING TO BILL WITHERS!"
30 mars 2007, 3h10m par Machine6619i love the title of this mixtape, i found it here: A mix for that sunny day..
A mix for that sunny Sunday late morning/early afternoon, when you’re sort of lying in bed and staring at the ceiling or out the window with lots of natural light pouring onto you, warming you with the feeling that you’ve got nothing to do today but think.

She's having a baby!
A good friend of mine is thrilled to death at the news of her pregnancy. Like with all important, life changing events, my first urge is to make a mixtape. I'm sure the kid will enjoy it more than a silver-plated rattle.
Suggestions for happy (emphasis on the happy!) songs about love, babies, lullabies, families, joy, etc?
Possibilities thus far:
A Sweet Summer's Night on Hammer Hill (if only for the refrain of "can you hear the beat of my heart?" which makes me think of an ultrasound)
You Are My Sunshine
Be Here Now
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
Thanks for your help, mixmasters!
