Fuck my life.

I've been slacking on the updates. I'll get on that soon. Anyways, I'm getting a Burt Bacharach tattoo. Yeah, that's right. I fucking rule. I hope to be half as talented as that dude someday. Anyways, enjoy this fucked up video. Homeboy knows his shit.

Holy Shit

So I'm sitting here watching Grammy performances and holy shit can black people arrange a song. As you know if you keep up with this blog, Levi Stubbs, leader of the Four Tops, died earlier this year so the Grammy Awards got Smokey Robinson, Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo to do a Four Tops medley with its remaining members. They do a minor shift at the end of "I Can't Help Myself" at the very end. What the fuck?! So sick.

Grace Me With Your Cold Shoulder

Man, when I actually pay attention to what's going on in contemporary music I always find some gem that I really get into. This record is one of those gems. This girl is a year younger than me and she has already had a number one record and more importantly, was hand picked by Burt Bacharach to sing a rendition of his song "Baby It's You" with him accompanying on piano. What the fuck. This girl has a great voice and there is some great fucking production on this record. There is definitely some LA era Motown influence in these songs. Any record that makes use of the Fender Rhodes will always get a little love from your boy. So sick. Anyways, enjoy.

Try it.
Buy it.


Here's her video for Chasing Pavements. You might have heard this song before. The horn/string swell in the chorus is so sick.

Not Without A Fight

So, I was expecting this record to be a lot worse honestly. It seems like a good mixture of Catalyst and Coming Home. Yada, Yada, Yada, Enjoy.
