Those words have been crashing Twitter, where phrases reflecting MJs death have comprises ten out of ten Twitter trends. I think this is a first.
In memorium, I’m posting my favorite Michael Jackson song. Its probably not my single favorite MJ video, but its one of the best.
These mini-movies are part of what sets the King of Pop of part in my mind and what will forever secure his legacy as one of the only people to combine funk, rock, and disco, then sell hundreds of millions of records in the process.
These nine-minute music videos are always a great view. String a couple of these together, and you have an Adam-Sandler sized movie, though I’d probably rather watch Happy Gilmore for the 59th time instead.
James Figurine creates lo fi beats with relaxing deep-voiced locals on top. He often goes by Dntel, which may or may not be a shortening of the phrase ‘Don’t Tell.’ He also performs with the group Figurine (where he draws his name from) as well as with the Postal Service.
What is a Geraldine? Is it a beverage? Is it a type of a car? A hand-sized mammel that lives in the Scottish Highlands?
While we’re at it, what’s a Glasvegas? For some reason, whenever I hear the name of this band, I think of Dirty Vegas, then I think of that song that was in the Mitsubishi commercial, then made fun of in the first skit in the first episode of Chapelle Show.
Regardless, Glasvegas puts a glorious spin on gritty post punk that makes it relaxing and smooth. I’ll describe it as gritty-smooth, which I realize is an oxymoron.
It was hard to pick my favorite song of this album, but Geraldine slightly surpasses their other jams as a single in my opinion.
One of my favorite Morphine songs, and definitely my favorite off their Like Swimming disc. I think this music video is one of their best as well, and its definitely the only video that got regularly airplay on MTV and VH1, back when those where the only two places to find music videos.
