Here I'll go even "more Mika" on you. Here's a really funny overkill use of Amiga by Mr. Patrick Wolf, "reinterpreting" Mika. http://youtu.be/CsCeCWjM7CA Most people hate this mix so if you hate it you're in good company. I love it. Maybe it's the bipolar thing and my Amiga sounds fetish. Allegedy, it's intended as a satire on Mika. Patrick Wolf is alleged to have said "Everyone has their place in the world of entertainment...apart from Mika." Mean if true. But certainly a decent bon mot. I think Mika's an amazing songwriter. I'll admit he once did a Queen cover, though, that made me want to throttle him.
My ex was an amazin' musician (well he still is). He composed on everything. I see "Playstation" be referenced in your labels there. Did you use the composition programs made for that. That had to come out around 2000 or slightly before because I remember him whipping out about 200 hundred tracks on that thing. But then he mostly remixed those with other things, including original vocals from collaborators of his. If I'm remembering correctly it was the human vocals that were very limited in their possibilities on there. Instrumentation was pretty wide open. I find myself attuned to Amiga sounds in pop, love it when contemporary songwriters mix that into their stuff...childhood flashbacks to my Atari 2600. I love what people like Patrick Wolf do with Amiga.
I love Mika. I'll listen to your mixes while LOLing..thanks for the link. Now singing Madonna..."Hey Mr. Deejay..." First one is starting out like Laurie Anderson doing her strange percussion on the dark stage...beating on her own body wired for sound...i bet you saw those clips....
I checked the link that went to google, Is it okay to use pictures on there? Could there be copyright problems? I couldn't tell from there. (That's where I was looking last night) Then if it was okay to use them I wouldn't have known how to get them.
laffed at the Mayan cartoon fanks. hope it amuses Constable. yeah you pimped Tool to me before lol. i'm usually more in love with the female voice than the male...and probably my favorite male singers are unabashed falsettos...or go there a lot.
Happy Gnu and New Year! I tried to follow your link but it wasn't there. Then I tried to copy my link for you for my Gnu year and it didn't work. I actually am not the best on technology. But still, happy 2012!
Awesome info on Massive Attack. I love what I've heard. My favorite band is the Cocteau Twins (who are no more a band) and Liz Fraser is my favorite singer. So I love the "Teardrop" song by Massive Attack where she guests. I like the alternative stuff best too. I'll have to check out the other band. I'm guessing they took their name from A Clockwork Orange. They'd be the second or third to do so, if so...Steely Dan got their name there...and I think Heaven 17 did too. I know Moloko is just Russian for "milk" but most people who encountered the word seem to have encountered it in Burgess's novels...the Moloko Bars the juvie delinquents in the book frequent.
