  • Onlygleb's Retro Top 2011 (full)

    14 Dec 2011, 15:40 by Onlygleb

    Дорогие друзья и все, кто читают эту заметку! Вот и стучится в двери предновогодняя суета, предстоят ещё сложнейшие 2 последние недели года. Чуть ранее я уже начал подводить итоги года. Скоро вы сможете лицезреть мой главный чарт уходящего года - итоговый топ-100 песен. А пока его участники делают свои последние рывки и падения предлагаю ознакомиться с ретро-топом этого года. Здесь и песни, открытые мной в этом году и подзабытые песни, которыми я заслушивался предыдущие годы, и те песни, что я открыл в прошлом году и по инерции слушал в этом. Ну и как говорит какой-нибудь мажор блондинке на заднем сидении машины: "Довольно болтовни, займёмся делом"

    220. Yazz and Plastic Population - The Only Way Is Up (1988)

    The Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance is the latest in a series of awards recognizing superior vocal performance by a female in the pop category, the first of which was presented in 1959. The award goes to the artist. The awards have had quite a convoluted history, particularly during the early Grammy years, having seen several name changes:

    • 1959-1960: Best Vocal Performance, Female
    • 1961: Best Vocal Performance Single Record or Track, Female and Best Vocal Performance Album, Female
    • 1962-1963: Best Solo Vocal Performance, Female
    • 1964-1968: Best Vocal Performance, Female
    • 1966: Best Contemporary (R&R) Vocal Performance - Female
    • 1967: Grammy Award for Best Contemporary (R&R) Solo Vocal Performance - Male or Female
      (the award went to Paul McCartney for Eleanor Rigby)
    • 1968: Best Contemporary Female Solo Vocal Performance

    Swoje ciało umieszczam w sukience.
    Wkładam nogi, piersi i ręce,
    ale głowę zostawiam na stole,
    bo bez głowy na miasto iść wolę .Downtown
  • Reelin' in the Years, Pt. 1

    26 Jun 2008, 09:08 by rockrobster23

    Back in January, I did this little live blog where I listened to a song from each year I've been alive, in sequence, and wrote about whatever came to mind. You can find it here, here, and here, if you're interested.

    Sitting at 11,964 tracks, it's time to do this again, because I've downloaded and ripped a LOT more music than I used to have on my computer (external hard drive), so I'll have a lot more choices in what to listen to and talk about. Also, it's fun to just let go and not have a specific plan or argument I want to make.

    Most choices: 1993 (26.7 hours)
    Least choices: 1970 (107 minutes)

    1965: I'm going to start by cheating. Downtown was actually released in late 1964, but it may well be the earliest piece of popular music I can remember hearing. I probably heard it in the womb. Generally speaking, I would call this kind of stuff "overproduced," but I feel a very comfortable nostalgia about Petula Clark's biggest hit. It's got a charming and brassy innocence, and is a marvelous piece of pop craftsmanship.

  • Shuffle Oracle II

    If you reached the top of Mount Everest, you would scream:

    Song: Déjà vu
    Artist: Crosby, Stills Nash & Young

    And I feel, like I've been here before
    And you know, it makes me wonder
    what's going on under the ground.

    For the record, I have never been to everest.

    The next time you stand up in front of a group of people, you'll say:

    Song: I'm Afraid Of Japan
    Artist: Final Fantasy

    For the record, I am not really afraid of Japan. Except for those Harajuku street walkers, eek.


    Your favorite thing to say when drunk is:

    Song: Boogie Shoes
    Artist: K.C. & The Sunshine Band

    I want to put on
    my my my my my boogie shoes
    just to boogie with you.

    this is probably true

    Your message to the world:

    Song: Gör Det Nu
    Artist: Dungen

    My message to the world... is in Swedish.


    When you think of your best friend you think:
    Song: Bridge over Troubled Water
    Artist: Simon & Garfunkel

    Aww...


    Your deepest secret:

  • Lorraine Live In London - Lovely!

    17 Nov 2006, 21:03 by BobMcCow

    Lorraine Bowen, possibly the kitschiest queen of lovely Casio music ever to grace the lovely world, played last night at The Theatre Museum in London and myself, along with a few select friends had the great privilege to attend her concert.

    It was a lovely tiny venue, properly intimate in the way that Kentish Town Forum can't quite manage, despite what the NME seem to think. We got their fairly early and were able to secure some seats in the 'round table and candles' area. So jazz club! Even if the candles were fake flickering LED's in misty glasses.

    Anyway, "What about the show, moron?!" I hear you think. So, about the show. We were warmed up with a rather amusing video to Burger Song which showed Lorraine driving a 'Meaty Treats' van over various animals, while the screen was literally licked with enourmous tongues during the 'Tongues, tongues, tongues and testicles la la la' section. We'd be a bit more fickle if we knew what we were eating with our Dill Pickle!

  • Guess That Song Pt. 3

    11 Oct 2006, 07:08 by Carali

    I'm resposting this since it somehow got deleted before. I put the answers up for the songs that were already guessed. There is also still some songs to be guessed in Pt. 1 & Pt. 2
    Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
    Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    1. Could you see the aisles of women? King of the Mountain
    2. We were at a party, his ear lobe fell in the deep Rock Lobster
    3. It's So Easy To Fall In Love It's So Easy
    4. She's a good girl, loves her mama Free Fallin'
    5. I'm feelin' like Tonto, ridin' a Pinto
    6. Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding Midnight Rider
    7. (ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba-baa, Joy of Cola) Jump in, just enjoy the ride
