I return with a special edition of ‘Music that makes me, me’. This time I have three French electro-swing tunes for you. You know, just to mix it up. Sometimes I’m in the mood for high-energy French dance tunes. And, Kaela, I know how much you value a good upright bass, so Caravan Palace fulfill that category, too. Hope you are all in the mood for something… different.
As Caravan Palace say – “Get happy and lose control!”
Caravan Palace – Dramophone
Parov Stelar – The Mojo Radio Gang
Caravan Palace – Suzy
I have the worst sleeping patterns ever. I fell asleep on the couch tonight at 9 p.m. I awoke at 2 a.m. I am wide awake now.
I had just gotten home from work. I say ‘work’. I referee indoor soccer competitions. It largely doesn’t feel like work. And it was the junior comp today. They’re all great kids. Lots of fun, really.
So, I had just gotten home from the reffing thing. Reheated myself some left-over pasta. Grabbed a pear cider. Turned on some tunes. Ate my pasta. Drank my pear cider. Turned on my laptop to attempt to produce something blogworthy.
Yeah, I fell asleep on the couch to tunes. Blame Damien Rice. It was his fault.
And then I awoke, 2 a.m. The tunes weren’t on anymore because my laptop battery had fallen asleep too. Again, I blame Damien Rice.
So, now it’s 3 a.m. and I am just getting started on this here blog. I still have nothing witty or interesting or valuable to share, so you’re getting this. Terribly sorry. I’m going to post something else, too. Probably another music post. I have been big on that lately. I have always been consumed by music, but am completely and utterly immersed in it at the moment. Thoughts of not much else making themselves heard. Oh, well.
Here is the song I fell asleep to. The Blower’s Daughter by Damien Rice. If you’re wondering what movie those clips are from, that would be ‘Closer’. Enjoy, but try not to nod off…
