Friday Music

Not as many tracks this week — Busy week.

The latest bit of earworm advertising from Apple — their new commercials for the iTunes music store had me hunting this track down: The Ting Tings – “Shut Up And Let Me Go.”

I tracked down this song from the Shoot ‘Em Up soundtrack, only to discover an entire Oakenfold album from a couple of years back that I had missed. I love the mix of T-Rex-ish and Bond-ish guitars in this. Paul Oakenfold – “Switch On.”

Some Mash-up Auf Deutsch! DJ Morgoth is offering an entire CD’s worth of german-artist mash-ups for free on his website. Go forth and download. I’m a big fan of this one, which mixes Rammstein and Fettes Brot: DJ Morgoth – “Schwule Sonne (Rammstein vs Fettes Brot).”

For those attending the forthcoming concert in KC, where Elvis Costello will be opening for The Police, I give you a track from Mr. Costello’s latest album, Momofuku: Elvis Costello & The Imposters – “Go Away.”

Lastly, I like it. That’s the only reason. Soul Coughing – “Super Bon Bon.”

Stop the Drama, Vote Obama

As of this morning, for the first time in this campaign, Barack Obama has the lead among superdelegates.

He now leads in popular vote, number of states, pledged delegates and superdelegates.

…and yet, Hillary Clinton stays in the race. Peggy Noonan of the Wall St. Journal has an editorial about this — including a quote from an anonymous superdelegate who says:

“It’s not math anymore, it’s psychodrama. If she can’t have it, no one can have it. If she has to tear the party apart, she will.”

Noonan argues that the call for Hillary to step aside needs to come from a senior party official who is female, white, and not viewed as an Obama supporter….otherwise Hillary will play the victim card publicly.

I don’t care who does it. It needs to be done. She hasn’t had a shot at this since February. Every day she stays in at this point does nothing but feed her ego, at the expense of the Democrats chances in the general election.
