BLONDE REDHEAD/Misery is a Butterfly

I am having such a nice time refreshing my IPOD- need a changeover for the road!!!

Anycase I really like this song today- I find it interesting that the lead singer is Japanese...I always imagined her as Icelandic -with that voice! lol

WHAM/Wake me up before you go go!

If Life is like a rollercoaster, I'm very glad to say I am at one of its peaks rather than its troughs. So maybe the clip that follows is classic "peak" music...ANYWAY.

The other day I was having coffee with a filmmaker and I glimpsed this keyring with some man on it.

Who is that? I asked.
George. She replied.

George? Who George?!! I asked.

Luckily she didn't take me for as ignorant as my question seemed and shoved the keyring closer to my eyeballs...

Ohhhhh...George MICHAEL GEORGE! I exclaimed.

I love George! She replied.

Yeah Me too!!!

And here is a karaoke friendly clip of my favourite WHAM song as a young child...Have fun singing along :)

VANESSA MAE/Night Flight

I stopped trying to fish around for inspiration from others...humans are just....human, so I turn to nature, art and...MUSIC!

I particularly like Track 5 on Vanessa Mae's "Subject to Change" - Night Flight.

Of course there are some dubious moments, like when she talk-sings, but all in all I'd have to say her work is quite an agreeable style of electro-classic fusion.

I remember when my Sinophilic Classical Music Loving mate first gave me her music, I was rather dubious cos all I knew of her was that she seemed like a bit of an attention seeker and had "corrupted" classical music by needing to sexify it so...

In any case I am much less judgemental and rigid in how I think now...the girl has talent, who cares how she chooses to present herself and/or classical music!

Microwave Jenny

Exciting! This is the best music out of oz I've heard in a while! Can't believe they're as yet unsigned- if I was a label I would so sign them...Tessa's voice speaks for itself...honestly reminds me of when I first heard Kate Ceberano....absolutely gorgeous! Hopefully they play some local shows soon :)

Check out their myspace or their webpage(my fav="mellow") and here's some youtube...

hmmm sometimes I think, I should be in the music business, I think my good taste in music ;) lends itself well to being able to pick the next big thing (well at least on the independent music scene!) I think this band is screaming for signing- can't believe they haven't been picked up yet!

Josh Pyke/When We Get There

Opening tune off the movie "The Black Balloon" Good but Intense...I felt drained just watching it- I quite like this song though :)

Bjork/Venus as a Boy

I can just imagine if I had been born a boy...I'm in that kind of "off with the fairies" daydreaming mode today...

This is my fav song off DEBUT - or, a toss up with PLAY DEAD.
