Today, I was searching for a good birthday video to send a friend, while also basking in the glow of a Friday paycheck & thinking somewhere in the back of my brain about the beginning of a new month—&, somehow, the elements coalesced: I decided to do a Music Round-Up of this Blogling's recent backing tracks, while also adding a new (transcendent, brilliant, I'm jittering just thinking about it) song. So, here goes:
11. EVERY COVER EVER. (But, for our purposes: I Wanna Be Your Dog—Émilie Simon (Iggy & the Stooges cover).) (6/10)
19. Rock 'n' Roll Never Looked So Beautiful—Semi Precious Weapons (Live, Bowery Ballroom, 4/26/10). (6/29)
& now, 20. All the Young Dudes (Live, David Bowie's 50th Birthday Party)—David Bowie ft. Billy Corgan.
"I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't bore you."
Words to live by, indeed. God, I love him so much.
Someday (soon), I'll do a Bowie-gush entry—but until then, I hope you can sate yourself with the May-June 2010 Mix. Enjoy.
