A bit late today — but we’re back!
First up – a brainworm I’ve had since the Gallifrey One convention in L.A.. This track was played by the DJ during the dance on Saturday night, so I’m always going to associate this with folks shaking their asses in front of a full-scale TARDIS. It’s a brilliant mash-up of the Ting Tings, The Knack, Toni Basil and Plastic Bertrand. Ting Tings – “That’s Not My Name (DJ Justin Kayes mashup).”
I’ve also been listening a bunch to Adam Lambert’s debut album, For Your Entertainment. There’s nothing on there that blows me away like his version of “Ring of Fire” from last year’s American Idol season, but it’s a solid 80s-influenced electro-dance album. I especially like this track, written by the incomparable Lady Gaga (and absolutely *dripping* with Gaga-ness): Adam Lambert – “Fever.”
A little sci-fi surf rock, in celebration of attending my first L.A. convention: Man or Astroman? – “Interstellar Harddrive.”
Turning the clock back a fair bit, to listen to a track which has been bouncing around my inspiration soundtrack for FAR WEST — Allman Brothers Band – “Midnight Rider.”
Another older track — a song that I hadn’t heard for a while, but which popped up in Pandora, reminding me of how much I liked it: Red Rider – “Lunatic Fringe.”
I’ve posted this one before, but it was a fair few years back. It’s really good, and I know that there are folks reading now who might not have been reading then. So, feast your ears on Knife – “Silent Shout.”
There you go, kids. Enjoy!
