Friday Music Fun. And a Clip From Trainspotting.

I was randomly surfing Youtube. First I found this song I love, it's called 'Sweet Pea.' Fantastic. Shoot, but I can't upload it in this post. Oh well. Anyways. Then I stumbled upon this scene from the movie Trainspotting, one of my favorite scenes of all time, haha it mostly features Begbie! And then thinking of that movie got me thinking about Blondie, and their song Atomic which some band covers in Trainspotting. And then thinking of Blondie made me think of their lead singer who reminds me of France Gall and Francoise Hardy. Who then made me think of Serge Gainsbourg (a total pervert!), who in turn reminded me of Frank Zappa. Did you need to know all that, why of course not! But that's what I'm here for, needless explanations. Uh, and I'm throwing in some other songs that I love, why? Well I suppose just for the hell of it!

Anyways here's some awesome vids:

I'll watch one of these a day! Apart from Brel I've never heard many songs in French, but I've always been curious about Fran├žoise.

Lots of music to listen to, most being stuff I've never heard. Though, thanks to you I now have Rock n' Roll High School stuck in my head.

Hey, Debbie Harry, lead singer of Blondie was quite the babe in her day. And I really kind of dug that band's music too.


WAT said...

And one more thing, Elton John is a musical genius and is one of my fav artists ever. HELLS YEAH.

Just a quick note to let you know that due to changes off-line I am not going to have the time to blog like I used to and Mi.Minutia has gone on hiatus. I just wanted to stop by with a personal goodbye (beyond the one I just posted at MiMinutia). I enjoyed getting to know you and reading your site. Thanks for reading mine. Maybe, if and when things ease up off-line, I'll see you again someday. Until then...

Mariana: Cool, yeah, I really like all these songs, I discovered Hardy maybe a year ago or something... really like her.

Silver: Haha, that song is always stuck in my head. I remember seeing that movie so long ago, I loved it!

WAT: Blondie will always be one of my favorite bands! And Elton John, his stuff is GREAT!

Bice: Thanks Bice. I dropped by your blog and left you a note. Hope to see back very soon, the blogosphere won't be the same without you...

Shaymus: Yo buddy! Aren't you tired of being upside down? You should move to the right hemisphere!

Babs: I am always smoking crack. 24/7.
