Something wicked this way comes.
It’s the Weeknd!
And no this isn’t a typo
Chillhop, whatever you want to call it… This guy makes some really sexy music.
In a nasty jealous angsty heartbreaking teenagey way.
And he posts his mixtapes on his site. Go back a few lines, click on that hyperlink. You won’t regret it. Actually you might… But I didn’t.

I discovered him with House Of Balloons – Glass Table Girls which samples Ginger Ale’s Happy House. I still don’t know which one I prefer…
I learned to accept the cheesy effects. It’s part of the sleaze.

The one that used to hit the spot for me was What You Need

I’ve got everything you want with me
I’ll do everything he does times three

He’s what you want
I’m what you need

But the song that triggered this post is Coeur de Pirate‘s cover of his Wicked Games. Nothing to do with Mr Isaak. Bear with us please. He’ll be landing shortly.

…Bring your love baby I can bring my shame
Bring the drugs baby I can bring my pain
I got my heart right here, I got my scars right here
Bring the cups baby I can bring the drink
Bring your body baby I can bring you fame
So tell me you love me
Only for tonight
Only for tonight
Even though you don’t love me
Oh, oh
Just tell me you love me
I’ll give you all of me, I’ll give you all of me
Even though you don’t love me

Let me see you dance
I love to watch you dance

Take you down another level
Get you dancing with the devil
Take a shot of this
But I’m warning you
I’m on that shit that you can’t smell baby
So, put down your perfume…

Of course, the title threw me into Helena Christensen nostalgia. This video was probably the hottest thing on MTV in the early nineties. It’s also a song a lot of people my age associate to first crushes etc… I obviously do!

The world was on fire
No one could save me but you.
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

No, I don’t want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
No, I don’t want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
With you
With you

What a wicked game you play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you…

If you want to hear a recent cover go to Stereogum and check out the Washed Out version

If you want the ultimate weird cover, check out Les Reines Prochaines‘ version on WFMU

And if you want to dance to it, check out the Soul Clap Edit I discovered thanks to the BCE

Nobody loves no one…

Forget MJ: Halloween’s just around the corner and Tom Waits’ latest album just landed.

Here’s the single that’s been all over the internet for the last few weeks.

Tom Waits – Bad As Me

They told me you were no good
I know you’ll take care of all my needs
You’re the same kind of bad as me

Anyway, staying with the Halloween theme, have you seen True Blood?
I just got Season 4 and will be overdosing on it some time soon. In the meantime, here’s one of the best song for opening credits on TV

Jace Everett – Bad Things

I don’t know what you’ve done to me,
But I know this much is true:
I wanna do bad things with you.

As good as it is, this track really reminds me of Chris Isaak’s song for Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

Watch the jealousy scene that triggers everything below.
Of course, the blue scene with the Naval Officer has scarred me for life (in a good but painful way).

Chris Isaak – Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing

Baby did a bad bad thing, baby did a bad bad thing.
Baby did a bad bad thing, baby did a bad bad thing.
You ever love someone so much you thought your little heart was gonna break in two?
I didn’t think so.
You ever tried with all your heart and soul to get you lover back to you?
I wanna hope so.
You ever pray with all your heart and soul just to watch her walk away?
Baby did a bad bad thing, baby did a bad bad thing.
Baby did a bad bad thing, feel like crying, feel like crying.
You ever toss and turn your llying awake and thinking about the one you love?
I don’t think so.
You ever close your eyes you making believe your holding the one your dreaming of?
Well if you say so.
I hurts so bad when you finally know just how low, low, low, low, low, she’ll go.
Baby did a bad bad thing, baby did a bad bad thing.
Baby did a bad bad thing, feel like crying, feel like crying.
Ohh. Feel like crying, feel like crying.
Ohh, feel like crying, feel like crying.

And now the news:

Today’s Soft Focus is on the Sugar Free Soy Flour Sausage Festival of Spanish Fork, UTAH.
It seems that the Saturated Fat of those Specialty Foods covers thousands of Square Feet and has dealt an unprecedented blow to the Sunflower industry in the region. This Scarcely Found type of Swine Flu is very dangerous because of its hybridization with Scarlet Fever.

Sustained Fire is the only solution to eradicate this mutant disease. Our Secret Friends at the Special Forces have guaranteed that all Safety Factors will be respected: Scuderia Ferrari has been transformed into an actual Strike Force with Significant Figures that recall the heyday of Northern Ireland’s Sinn Fein and Denmark’s Socialistisk Folkeparti.

With its Simple Formulation, Sigmund Freud’s Super Friendly Survivor Function has transformed the Spayed Female’s Smoking Fetish into a Super Fancy Static Force. Our Semi Floating Star-Fleet is here with Sword and Fist to make sure the Swiss Franc System Failure is not repeated and the Sexy Female’s Sticky Fingers are defiantly aimed at her Step-Father, looking for a Soft Feel on the Shop Floor.

Please forgive the Semifinished Sentence Fragments ; I’d say this is more Speculative than Science Fiction.



Scott McKenzie – San Francisco (Mediafire Link)

If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there

That’s the song most people get in their head. I could have also posted Village People’s Go West.
But I went in for the kill with his one

Magnetic Fields – Come Back From San Francisco (Mediafire Link)

Come back from San Francisco.
It can’t be all that pretty,
when all of New York City misses you.
Should pretty boys in discos distract you from your novel,
remember I’m awful in love with you.
When you betray me, betray me with a kiss.
Damn you. I’ve never stayed up as late as this.

And continued with this one: the manipulative cherry on top

Chris Isaak – San Francisco Days (Mediafire Link)

I still love you, I still want you.
I still need you, don’t hang up and say goodbye.
we never will be through…
