Yeah, this song’s dedicated to Saturdays, but its vibe’s perfectly appropriate for Fridays, too, so, without further ado, De La Soul’s classic 1991 track “A Roller Skating Jam Called Saturdays”
For this Friday’s Friday Vibe Video, enjoy “Count To Five,” from Rhye’s excellent new album, Blood.
This week really flew by, so I’m going to take a second to slow down with London-based musician Jerkcurb’s languid “Night on Earth” – I hope you will too.
Happy weekend y’all!
For this Friday’s installment of Friday Vibes Video, here’s Drugdealer and Weyes Blood with the track “Suddenly.”
Have good weekends, y’all!
Phew! Where did this week go?
I kind of slacked over here, for which I apologize, but trust it’s for the greater good – I think; maybe; I hope…. Anyway, to make up for it, here are Debbie Harry and Kermit the Frog singing “Rainbow Connection.”
I hope you find yours this weekend.
Spring’s almost upon us and I’m already pumping the Grateful Dead, getting in the airy, ethereal, earthy mood that comes with warmer weather.
I know “Sugar Magnolia” is a bit of a cliche, but it’s still great, so here’s a live performance from April 26, 1977, in Passaic, New Jersey, which then blends into “Sunshine Daydream.”
Have great weekends!
In honor of “National Day of Unplugging,” the apparently annual 24-hour period in which we’re all encouraged to disconnect and detox from our devices and internets [advice many of us don’t take], here is perhaps the greatest MTV Unplugged performances of all time: Nirvana covering David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold the World.”
Have great weekends y’all! And tune in next week for pieces on the Girl Scouts, White House press briefings and a very timely, perhaps prescient “Etymological Adventure.”
For this week’s Friday Vibes Video, here’s Arrested Development’s 1992 classic, “Mr. Wendal,” an aural reminder that homeless people are indeed people who should not be ignored, dismissed or disrespected. If you see a homeless person this weekend, take a moment to lend them a hand or, just as importantly, an ear.
It’s Friday night, and the mood is right…
To mark the end of another eventful week, music editor Maicho James suggested New York-based dance duo In Flagranti and singer Craig Yamey’s 2015 track, “Double Talk.” Yes! Yes!
See you Monday!
In honor of Ice-T’s birthday, here’s the entertainer’s 1993 biographical track “How I’m Livin’,” which really needs a sequel to include Law & Order.
