This track is far too literal to not post on a Friday afternoon.
An oldie in the EDM game, this 2005 trance gem from legendary Dutch DJ Ferry Corsten titled “Fire” (of course) features vocals from Simon Le Born of Duran Duran and just spits hot flames all over the place.
Enjoy the weekend everyone and … say it with me … STAY HOT.
Had this song stuck in my head lately. Brah, it’s a chick band . . . like a Costa Rican chick band I think . . .
You yanks up there in Boston/New York/Philadelphia will shit when you hear this:
There was an interview with Phil Collins in Rolling Stone earlier this year where he lamented the fact he’d become a punchline in modern pop culture. He was “Tired of being Phil Collins,” as he put it.
Honestly, has there been a bigger crime perpetrated against our collective memories in history? Phil Collins pretty much defined the 80s synth pop sound that so many indie douches are now trying to emulate and, what’s more, he always seemed to be a stand-up guy.
Sure, he’s not the coolest dude on the planet, but guys like Phil Collins deserve more respect than this, and it’s our new job here at TMF to make sure Phil Collins doesn’t become just some Patrick Bateman favorite or Mike Tyson punching bag.
In the words of Howard Beale, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take it anymore!”
So with that, I am announcing every Friday here at TMF will now be known as PHIL COLLINS FRIDAY.
Ahh Peter, Bjorn and John. Remember when ‘Young Folks’ came out and it was the greatest song EVER for like three months before everyone wanted to kill the radio for overplaying it?
So now the quirky Swedish trio managed to get one of their songs locked in as the theme for the latest cookie-cutter, laughing track-heavy CBS sitcom called “Two Broke Girls” — which should really just be called “Two Hot Chicks” or “One Chick Who’s Witty but Also a Bitch but Has Huge Boobs and Another Chick Who’s Totally Hot but Dumb as Rocks.”
I guess now you know why I’m working in a cubicle in the Boston suburbs and not in Hollywood writing new sitcoms for America’s passive entertainment.
But ANYWAY, there were some pretty great songs on that album (2007′s Writer’s Block) if any of you actually gave enough of a shit to listen to the rest of it — but I mean who listens to ENTIRE ALBUMS anymore anyway?? BORING.
This one’s called “This Chills” and definitely gives me some good late night college memories…take it away:
I’ve asked pharro a number of times if this is the best hip-hop song of all time. Why have I asked a number of times? I always get different answers when I ask him a question more than once, but thats not the point. Always come to one consensus — It is without a doubt the best hip-hop song live. Period.
In my opinion its the Manny Pacquaio of rap songs. You can talk about how good he is but you can’t judge the little guy against one of the Klitschko brothers. The song is only two minutes long so it can’t be judged against everything else in the hip-hop world but as far as two minutes of awesomeness goes? It’s tops.
So as you finish up your Friday and start consuming alcohol to celebrate making it through another week — enjoy this one from the vault.
Note: Doesn’t something have to be about a decade old to be from the vault? Just saying. (ed. note — how DARE you question the vault! as far as i’m concerned, the vault can include anything from like 5 years ago or older…)
well since this insanely good album halcyon digest came out about a year ago, it’s clear i’m far too lazy to dig too deep into the vault.
deerhunter is an atlanta outfit who are writing some damn good songs and, for some reason, still seem to be flying under the radar in a way. i guess the official genre is like low-fi post punk or something…or is it dream pop? shoegaze? wtf i have no idea … maybe one of you music snobs can clear this up in the comments.
either way, the progressions in this jam are insane, and they totally go off the rails for the last four minutes into a jam it’s hard not to get lost in.
for sure deerhunter.
