Throwback Thursday Ep 09


Throwback to sadness, because September is sadness. No REM< no Tears in Heaven though. And no, no Hallelujah. This was actually a very hard list for me, because I'm musically irrevocably damaged and I love sad songs. I even have a playlist called "Weltschmerz", for Autumnal rain's sake! And sometimes a song is not even sad, but it exudes sadness. Like Simon & Garfunkel's Sound of Silence. Or maybe it is a sad song, but more than that, it paints a bleak, dystopian vision. So I had to chose.
Prepare tissues.

Throwback Thursday Ep 08


The year is 1993. Count your blessings because I did not put Duran Duran or Snow there. I also didn't include songs that only in 1993 became popular, but were recorded in the most wonderful 80's.

Li Ronghao new song [ 李榮浩 — 不說]


This man has a marvelous voice and it unfurls fully in ballads. This song, "Don't Say", is part of the OST to the movie I Belonged to You. His lower notes are just lovely. Like always.

Throwback Thursday Ep 07

 

The year is 1979, and it was a good year^^. I am not going to list so obvious choices like Queen, Abba, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, The Police or The Clash, but some other gems.
Enjoy!

JJ Lin - Infinity And Beyond


Especially for Jubi^^
It was released yesterday, so the MV is the freshest fresh you can imagine. The song reminds me in few moments of quite a handful other songs, but the video is great. I mean the song too, because it's JJ Lin, and he doesn't disappoint. I had the impression the music background and the vocal line are running on two separate tracks, as if the vocal line wasn't in sync with the main music line. This dissonance is actually pretty interesting.

Video below.

Throwback Thursday Ep 06


Today's theme is the 50's. This list is just a tiny fraction of what I would love to post, because the 50's gave us a galaxy of great songs. OK, make that two galaxies.
Video heavy^^

[Review] Killjoys Season 1


I am probably irrevocably damaged by my own background, so I see patterns everywhere, in every show I watch. Wanted to watch something light and fluffy, so I tried Killjoys, then I realized I was watching an Orwellian world. Or worlds.
