Manzarek held down melody and bass on the keys in band with no bass guitar. I have an odd affinity for the Doors. The Doors were one of my father’s favorite rock bands, as they were for a lot of servicemen during the Vietnam era. I’m curious to get the old man’s take this weekend. While Manzarek had a long career, I think it’s nearly impossible to separate his later work from the Doors. Pretty amazing considering the Doors as a band lasted for about 6 years, yet left a heck of a legacy.
The song is meh and NSFW. The video is wild with graphic violence. Despite the title screen, it is not full of sexual scenes. Not much different than a lot of big action movies, but the first person view really changes the feel.
This was on musical hold while I was refilling a prescription at the pharmacy. In February 2013, Pearl Jam’s Ten went diamond – it has sold over 10 million copies. It was released in 1991. How many times has it been copied, burned, downloaded, and bootlegged?
Sounds like something that should be blasting from a 90′s mall clothing shop that sells Z. Cavaricci pants. I imagine it will be in a shampoo commercial shortly. It’s poppy and it caught me.
I like this stripped down live version.
The subtitles did it for me.
Disney chose a stellar song for the trailer of their upcoming cartoon to get the kids pumped:
For those not familiar with Mr. Zombie’s 1995 lyrics:
Yeah, I am the astro creep
A demolition style
Hell american freak, yeah
I am the crawling dead
A phantom in a box
Shadow in your head say
Acid, suicide freedom of the blast
Read the f***er lies, yeah
Scratch off the broken skin
Tear into my heart make
Me do it again yeah
Oh, crap, I cannot stop laughing.

Pink Floyd is going to stream Dark Side on their site tomorrow and are asking fans to join in the 40th anniversary festivities.
Vampire Weekend just released two new tracks. I like this laid back track, Step:
Their second single is here. Diane Young is a little more electro poppy.
Postal Service has some interesting fans.
Sadly for me but good for the band, their upcoming show in my neck o’ the woods sold out quickly. I’m not surprised the legal scalpers at StubHub are already asking between double and nine times face value. (I hope no one pays that.)
We’ve been deficient in our recommended dose of INXS.
A belated Valentine that went unchecked in my inbox. It could easily be made into a club banger, but I like the restraint used to keep it lighter and more poppy. It’s a simple concept for the video yet it really captures the song.
This has passed my inbox and streams a few times. Very poppy and synth laden.
NSFW – liberal f-bombs. I’ve always been confused by “designer t-shirts” too.
Taking it easy this morning.
What an amazing blend of art, makerspace, compressors, robotics, and music. And to use Motorhead? Brilliant!
The little dude holding the high hat is great.
…the reign of terror continues, as our Poet Laureate gives us yet another Haiku and music video from the wicked past. I had not idea that:
Into The Groove
Song about dancing?
No: girls pleasuring themselves
When they are alone

reign of terror Christmas Musical special as only he can. -- Tengrain]
That’s right: Premature
In a pop song. here.
M83 has released the third and final video in their sci-fi series. Previous videos can be found here.
Cyndi still has it, but what an amazing duet. Their voices really work well together.
10 years ago doesn’t seem that long ago. 2002 says hello.
Damn couches. Always making me lazy.
Better sound quality here, but I prefer the original video. The two videos present a similar premise, only in reverse.
Yo La Tengo has a new album coming out in January. Here’s a track for the interwebs. It’s nice and mellow. Perfect for a cup of coffee and going through TPS reports.
In these troubling times, please remember our fellow brethren in Norway.
