Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry – Don’t Fight It
Sep 30th, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – Kenny Loggins and STEVE PERRY – Dont Fight It.

Somebody on my fantasy football league posted this song as a joke.  But this song is no joke – it’s serious business!  Guitar solo included.

On a side note, I can’t tell you how often I have to correct the names of Youtube videos before I publish them on my blog.  Seriously – couldn’t the person who posted the video at least put an apostrophe in “Dont” when they post a video?  So irritating.

Depeche Mode – It’s No Good
Sep 29th, 2010 by lo-budge

via YouTube – depeche mode it’s no good.

I didn’t plan on posting another Depeche Mode song so soon, but this one came up as I was reading about Dave Gahan on Wikipedia and surfing around Depeche Mode links.  This was several years after Violator, but it skipped that whole “live instruments” phase they never should have really entered into, in my humble opinion.   A nice return to form, even if it’s old now.

Sir Mix-A-Lot – Posse On Broadway
Sep 28th, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – Sir Mix-A-Lot – Posse On Broadway.

I remember hearing S.W.A.S.S.  for the first time in 6th grade in Albuquerque and thinking this song was in reference to NYC.  I don’t think I really ever understood it was here in Seattle until I moved here around 2001, or maybe just a little before that.  Even though the album cover shows Mix-A-Lot grabbing the space needle on the cover.  This song is pretty swass, that’s for sure.

What’s killing me about listening to it now is not only seeing the different places he goes to in the video, but all of the intersections he name-checks are so very close to my current residence, like 23rd and Union (or Jackson and 23rd).  Hilarious.

The Love Language – Nocturne (Live on KEXP)
Sep 27th, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – The Love Language – Nocturne Live on KEXP.

Man, that smooth as a baby’s butt Luther song is still stuck in my head.  I do love that one (especially the “Never Too Much Never Too Much Never Too Much” falsetto part) and I’m glad Chris posted it.  I remember some commercial for a radio station that used to come on all the time in Albuquerque (I think) where they interviewed people on the street to ask them why they liked Smooth Jamz 107.9 or whatever it was called, and one guy says “Lutha, Lutha, and more Lutha” in regards to the amount of Luther Vandross songs they played.  I used to love that commercial.

Today’s video is The Love Language, a band from Chapel Hill doing a live performance on Seattle’s KEXP.  Kyla likes this band a lot and tried to see them here in Seattle last Friday but it was sold out by the time she got there.  Gots ta get your tickets early in the big city, I guess.  The singer/guitarist looks suspiciously like my friend Hartman, also a North Carolina native.

Greg and I took in a local soccer game on Sunday for the University of Washington vs. UC-Davis and UW won.  Soccer fever is not going to die around here, and I am happy about that.

I think I also may have landed a job, but I’m not sure until mid-week about that.  This is good news, but I also hope I have a bit of time off between my current job and that one.  I found a bunch of new stuff to scan is the main reason why!  Oh, and maybe finishing moving into my new house.

Luther Vandross – Never Too Much
Sep 24th, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – Luther Vandross – Never Too Much (Music Video) HD.

From Chris:

When lo-budge axed me to provide Friday updates for his blog, he requested that I post whatever it was I was listening to on YouTube. Well lads, this week it’s Luther Vandross. I’m not very familiar with Luther’s career, but he made a lot of smooth disco jams in the late 70s and early 80s that I really like! I love the production of the old disco, and Luther’s voice is as soft and smooth as a baby’s…….well you know!

808 State – Live at the G-mex
Sep 23rd, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – [HD] 808 State – Live at the G-mex part 1.

I was just looking around for a song to post and of course started looking at 808 videos for fun and ran into this one which I thought was worth viewing.  It appears to be from some short documentary I have never seen.  Bjork appears toward the end.

Broken Social Scene – KC Accidental
Sep 23rd, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – Broken Social Scene – KC Accidental.

My last album pick was You Forgot It In People by Broken Social Scene.  ‘Nuff said.

Beta Band – Dr. Baker
Sep 21st, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – Beta Band – Dr Baker.

The 14th album I chose was The Three E.P.’s by The Beta Band, although I’m not sure why since I don’t love every song on it.  But the album as a whole is great, even if it’s not really an album but just a collection of previously released E.P.’s.

Magnetic Fields – The Flowers She Sent And The Flowers She Said She Sent
Sep 20th, 2010 by lo-budge

YouTube – The Flowers She Sent And The Flowers She Said She Sent – The Magnetic Fields.

I was off-line Friday, and Chris was under the knife so there were no updates.  I have 3 more albums to go, which I can do today, tomorrow, and Wednesday.

Album #13 was Holiday by Magnetic Fields.  This could have just as easily been Moon Safari by Air or some other album I was listening to at the time, and I still really like this one.  I think my favorite song on the album is “Desert Island” but I already posted that one.

Dire Straits – Walk Of Life
Sep 16th, 2010 by lo-budge

via YouTube – Dire Straits – Walk Of Life + lyrics.

Album #12 is Brothers In Arms by Dire Straits.  I didn’t plan to put this one on my list, but out of nowhere while thinking of other albums this one popped in my mind because I used to love it so much in middle school, so it did make a permanent impact on me.  And millions of other people who wear hats with two beers on them and a straw that they drink at ball parks, unfortunately.
