Zack Harrison Memorial Music Monday: Mix Tape Mania Edition.

So, d did such a fantastic job of introducing new music to the Bee-Spot family of reader(s) last week that I'm still catching up and haven't really scoured the blogs/my brain/usual suspects for what's out there this week. Instead, I bring you my most recent commute mix (none of these make any sense - I mean, seriously, there might be something wrong with me - thoughts?):

Children's Story - Slick Rick: Awesome!

Secret Heart - Feist: See, a fan from the beginning.

Sherry Fraser - Marcy Playground: There is just something about this album that makes me feel all warm and gooey like half baked browies inside.

Sometimes I Rhyme Slow - Nice & Smooth: This song reminds me of the real Zack Harrison, driving around Norman in his cigarette filled car with the windows down talking about, wait, what did we talk about?

The District Sleeps Alone Tonight - The Postal Service: Yeah, PS is tool music. I get it. But I also like it.

Kanye West - All Falls Down: Because sometimes it does. But not if you're Kanye.

If I Ever Feel Better - Phoenix: I think I might - outlook good.

Novocaine For The Soul - Eels: Yes please.

Rise Up With Fists - Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins: I want to hate her because she's both awesome and was in Troop Beverly Hills, but instead I just drool.

Hello Operator - White Stripes: I'd still like to know what this one's about.

You Got Me - The Roots: For some reason, this song reminds me of C-tina, whom I've been thinking about as she's now so far away.

Shadow Boxer - Fiona Apple: Standard shower belting fare at my place.

Say It Ain't So - Weezer: Blue album. Goodness.

Seriously, it's like I'm stuck in ninth grade musically. Perhaps I advanced too quickly for my own good with this "indie" stuff. Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, Grizzly Bear, Stars, Art Brut? It's like I want a musical Big Mac.

It just took me ten minutes on to figure out that Jenny Lewis was not in Superbad.

Also, this is the second time Ive heard Slick Rick mentioned this week. A sign? I hope so.

Tilly said...

Wait, wait, wait. You didn't like Troop Beverly Hills?!! I just, I just don't know. I'm seeing Rilo Kiley this weekend...Yessssssss! Serious girl crush.

la di da di
we like to party;
we don't cause trouble,
and we don't bother nobody.
We're just some men that's on the mic
And when we rock up on the mic
We rock the mic RIGHT!

aw yeah, love me some old skool!

That Jenny Lewis vid was AWESOME! I love that album.

jeannette - f yeah slick rick!

tilly - no, i like her so much because of that that i want to hate her. get it? no?

dan - right on. i've been trying to get my friends to engage in a late 80s/early 90s dance party, at which that song would be played, but no takers.

colleen - me too, me too. and everyone's seen her/rilo kiley in concert lately but me. sadness. she lives on in my mind.

For your further Slick Rick pleasure, (no video, awesome sick little singalong song)

Also, can't find it on line, but try to find Jim's Big Ego's cover from several years ago of, of all things, "Feelin' Groovy." It's kind of a Simon & Garfunkel/Slick Rick mashup. Priceless.

Tilly said...

Ahhh, yes. Slow on the uptake these days.

CU said...

hot linking music without giving credit is bad.

blythe said...

oops, sorry! i always assumed that if people clicked on the link and liked it, they'd look up where it came from. that's what i do, but next time i'll make it clear. again, sorry.

The Don said...

If you link directly to our tracks you should at least have the decency to credit the site.

blythe said...

yeah, i got that. sorry. see above.

What's the deal with the intellectual property stormtroopers? Does this happen a lot?
