Friday Music

The attempt at daily bloggery continues, with this week’s Mixtape of Teh Interwebz:

First off — a leaked track which sure as hell sounds like Lady Gaga. No confirmation of course, but that voice is hard to deny. Nobody knows if this is a leftover from The Fame Monster or an early demo from her next album, Born This Way. Either way, a tasty electro-pop confection, no matter the source: Lady Gaga – “Nothin’ On (But the Radio).”

This is a short one — I’m desperately waiting for a full soundtrack release, which will hopefully include an expanded version of the this title song. Until then, I’ll have to settle for this recorded-from-DVR version of the theme: Peter Nashel, Duotone Audio Group – “Theme from Rubicon.”

Speaking of AMC series, the following has been a total earworm for me since its use in some of the extended commercials for “The Walking Dead”, which kicks off on Halloween. The Walker Brothers – “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore.”

Another earworm — this one from the new iPod Touch commercials from Apple: Chappo – “Come Home.”

Gotta post this, because I threatened to — and Laura told me that it would result in her totally getting Thug at her desk at work. So, y’know, there’s an absolute moral imperative here. ODB – “Shimmy Shimmy Ya.”

New song from a new artist from Toronto, Margo. The track is a brilliant bit of throwback 80s-synth-RnB — kinda like Prince-meets-Jody Whatley. Margo – “Cold As Ice.”

Lastly, a Rocky Horror cover track from Naked, a 2006 album by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, released only in Japan. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts – “Science Fiction (Punk Version)”

There you go, kids. Enjoy!
