In A Class By Myself
I have way more music than Jesus, so you can only imagine what I must go through on the rare occasions when I decide to post some sounds from my own collection. I usually start with the notion that the songs should be organized and/or catergorized in some particular way. Three blunts and 420 mp3s later, I'm sayin' "aw hell---fuck a theme". Here are the final results of that thought process today:
"Tramp" ---Otis Redding w/Carla Thomas
The repartee between these two legendary soul singers has always been priceless...and now I guess it's...umm...free.
"Fish in the Dish" ---Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (for my loyal reader Firpo) This song is at least as entertaining as its title. I love songs about fishes and dishes, and hell knows they're difficult to come by. This mp3 is the full version, unlike those bullshit clips I posted the other day.
"This Is Our Day"---Rob Swift/ Dan the Automator
Great track from two undisputable masters of turntablism. All that scratchin' will definitely make you itch...but in a good way.
"Do What You Gotta Do"---Nina Simone
As many links as I've posted to other sites/blogs that have featured her material, I don't remember anyone posting this particular tune. It's both beautiful and disturbing, and shouldn't be slept on a moment longer.
"This Is What They Meant"---Pete Rock & Grand Agent
Turn the headphones up, y'all. Classic lyric: "I got Sam Cooke up in my rhyme book, bitch/and he ain't singin'..."
Let the music save us all...
