Today is a good day, I don't know why but it just is. Here are some songs about similarly good days in contemporary American history.

this one unfortunately has a commercial in the beginning but still an amazing video and song

neat animated video of Lou Reed's Perfect Day



Sesame Street is cool and all and that's my childhood and all, but kids today get Yo Gabba Gabba: the most psychedelic children's show of all time. The must not do drug testing at that workplace because its one of the weirdest things I've ever seen in my life. Here's Chromeo with a synth jam set in a giant sink in space singing about properly washing your hands. It's totally bizarre....

and btw I'm a VCB (very clean boy) and I ALWAYS wash my hands after playing.

Step by Step

August 22th, 1992. It was 2 days after my 11th birthday and I was staying at my father’s apartment in Greenwich, CT as I did most weekends back then. It was a good weekend for the most part. For my birthday I received a cassette of New Kids on the Block’s game changing album “Step by Step” from my father and his young girlfriend, Stacy. I’ll always remember the day I received that album because late that night, as I left my room to go to the bathroom, I saw my dad banging Stacy on the living room couch. I’d never seen anything like that before, and I would never see Stacy again after that weekend.
My favorite song on that album was obviously, “Step by Step.” What a song.


Megafaun: Volunteers


Vincent Moon and the people at La Blogtheque are at it again capturing the new band Megafaun in all their bearded glory doing their new song "Volunteers" outside a coffee shop in Montreal. I especially enjoy the banter amongst the band mates about hitting one more high one at the end of the song.

Sir Mix Alot-Put 'Em On the Glass (NSFW Video)

Sir Mix-A-Lot was just known as Mix-A-Lot before he released the song "Posse on Broadway"; a song which instantly struck a chord with the British noble class. Soon after its release he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in a ceremony which many called "fresh" and "forward thinking". It was Prince Charles' idea to record "Put 'Em on the Glass", a record which came from his own personal experiences of driving through the British country-side while wearing a chinchilla coat, sunglasses, and a Kangol hat.

Tame Impala

Tame Impala are some really far out psychedelic fellas who're set to drop their debut album in two weeks. They're australian, they're signed to Modular Records and they play some pretty trippy music....far out!


Trampled by Turtles: Wait So Long


Seems these Duluth Minnesota boys are playing the upbeat bluegrass laced with energy that I love. Reminiscent of what the Avett Brothers had when they were first getting started. This tune "Wait so long" I can tell just from the recorded version that in person would kick some bluegrass ass.
