The Specials-"Friday Night, Saturday Morning" (1981)

I adore this song. Although I stayed in this Friday night, I love living out these lyrics.

Prince-"I Wanna Be Your Lover"(1979)

Prince - I Wanna Be Your Lover by abelflexes
I am jelly that DJ Sweet-tooth recently won an Ebay auction for this seven inch record. Such a good jam. The only time I usually hear this love song is when KSoul plays it.

Kill List(2012) + Timecrimes(2007)

Double Feature: I didn't plan on watching both of these movies last night.

The Kill List (2012)

Jesus. I don't know who would enjoy this movie. Many critics praised this recent release, but audiences (not surprisingly) did not. The Kill List is accurately described as a "hitman movie', but that summary is not fitting. Violent (think Irreversible or Hostel) and almost supernatural (The Wicker Man meets Rosemary's Baby) are a couple of terms that come to mind when describing this flick, after marinating in my head for less than twenty four hours. The Hunchback!

Timecrimes (2007)

My buddy told me a fitting account of this movie being similar to a full movie/single narrative Twilight Zone film. Right on the money. Wade.

Azealia Banks-"212" (2011)

Big up to the Swedes (who probably read Pitchfork) that tipped off Rob aka DJ Sweet-tooth to this jam during SXSW.

Van Morrison-"Crazy Love"(1970)

I heard this song the other day in a friend's car. (I thought it was the Aaron Neville version).

This is for the older crowd that was feeling Van Morrison tonight.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Alan Braxe & Fred Falke-"Palladium"(2002)

All the way from France, Alan Braxe will be coming to Dallas tonight to DJ at the Rio Room.

Here's a track (sans Fred Falke) from 1997, one year before he would be involved in Stardust.

Maximum Joy-"Searching for a Feeling"(1982)

The Smiths-"Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" (1987)

I was elated to find this seven inch at Record Grouch. I saw the exact same record (sans sleeve) for TWICE as much at Earwax. Good find.

Watch the actual video here.

Kraftwerk-"Pocket Calculator"(1981)

I recently acquired this Kraftwerk single. Great looking vinyl.

Sold in Japan during their 1981 tour.
