20. Nov. 2012, 15:19 von toffeeluce1. Your favourite song.
Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life). I have a few favourite songs but this one is my current favourite.
2. Your least favourite song.
Pretty much anything by Justin Bieber, Willow Smith, One Direction, Jedward, Cher Lloyd and The Wanted. Oh, and Rebecca Black. They're all annoying and should go away. I do like Will Smith, though.
3. A song that makes you happy.
Loreen - Euphoria. Need I say more?
4. A song that makes you sad.
Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars. I love Snow Patrol but this song reminds me of my brother, who died in 2007, and I still miss him so much.
5. A song that reminds you of someone.
Danny Kaye - Wonderful Copenhagen. Two of my best friends live over there and they're two of the craziest and loveliest guys you could ever wish to meet.
6. A song that reminds you of somewhere.
Scotts - Meet Me In Stockholm. Scotty and I had our honeymoon in Stockholm and we loved it.
7. A song that reminds you of a certain event.

Guest mix #51 comes from Kool Thing, the Berlin-based duo made up of Jon Dark and Julie Chance. (How hasn’t anyone thought of naming their band “Kool Thing” before?) Their debut Light Games EP, which came out in January, made for a perfect soundtrack to walks in the cold winter nights, its only fault being that it is merely three tracks long. It’s available as free download so go and check it out if you haven’t already. The duo has also made remixes for Austra and Light Asylum. They are currently residing in Sydney, working on new stuff and doing shows. A new EP should be out before the Summer.
The mix starts off quietly, slowly building up to some house jams and club bangers, including Kool Thing’s take on ‘The Beat and the Pulse’ and a remix of their own track by Maya Postepski (of Austra and Trust). They close the mix with Arthur Russell’s ‘Arm Around You’, a perfect come down and one of my favorites by him. …

6. Mär. 2011, 1:07 von mediathinkI saw the news about Phil Collins giving up music. It made me sad. The brunt of jokes and the subject of one of the most disturbing scenes in American cinema (you can listen to it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZZAhI5Z3LQ) I always thought the scene was interesting because it was so precisely backwards.
I'm not sure Phil is being entirely honest when he said "I'm sorry that it was all so successful. I honestly didn't mean it to happen like that. It's hardly surprising that people grew to hate me."
Hardly surprising indeed. His success was alienating; but it has to be done. everyone hates SussudioSussudio and Against All Odds and even In the Air Tonight . But in the case of the latter, one must consider how many times this song has been played. Researching music for 20 years, I do not know a single song that so many people have liked for so long.
So everyone knows the crap, few know the genius and the ground breaking work Phil turned in. …

18. Feb. 2010, 19:31 von AtitlanWhen I think about my love of music and how my taste was shaped it always comes back to one year ... 1981. I was 15 and the chart music of that year turned a passing interest in music into a lifelong obsession.
To understand why you need to look at the upper reaches of the UK chart and in particular at how varied and sometimes brave the music was. Remember these were big hits and chosen by record companies to be singles.
I'm going to pull out some of my favourites from the year that all made the top 3.
We start with In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins - Probably the only decent song he ever did outside of Genesis and still a great song for anyone who can get past the fact that it's Phil Collins. (Number 2)
Next one of the earliest singles I remember raving about -
Vienna by Ultravox. Not only do I remember being obsessed with this epic piece of electronic music, but I remember being devastated that a dire novelty record could deny it the number 1 spot it so richly deserved…
