Syl Johnson – I Hate I Walked Away

There’s so much great new music to listen to and even more exceptional are all the recorded song of the 20th century that have been overlooked and forgotten. I’m often astounded by the popularity of classic rock. The same 30 or so songs played over and over again for the past 40 years. Don’t folks crave something different? How can the music move you when you’ve heard it endless times, year after year after year, all day and everywhere? I don’t understand.

This is one of those songs that should be popular. I only just heard it tonight but it’s been around longer than I’ve been alive.


Jane Weaver- Don’t Take My Soul

Happy 2015!

Starting this year, I will return to posting a “Favorite Video of the Week.” I mostly keep this blog going so I can easily search songs I like. I have a terrible memory and it’s only through my blog I can find songs I liked from say, three years ago. My brain has become a jar of overflowing jellybeans.


Charlie Brown’s Christmas Crunk

Merry Holidays!


Hermanas Lima – Mi Cafetal

A popular, traditional Latin American standard. Difficult to find a version with lyrics.


Aviador DRO – La ciudad en movimiento


Simple Minds – Theme For Great Cities


Les Fleurs by 4Hero


Nuyorican Soul ~ I am The Black Gold of The Sun (4 Hero Remix)


Asi Se Baila Zapateado en Hermosillo, Sonora

A charming video documenting a localized style of zapateado dancing from Hermosillo, Sonora in Northern Mexico. The homeland of my maternal ancestors. Interstingly, I dance a lot like this and I had no idea that I probably learned this style from my family.

Also from Sonora, a mesmerizing video showing the skill required to make perfectly round and paper-thin flour tortillas. Crossing my fingers traditions like these continue in our bulldozer of cultures world.


BLADEE FT. BONES – SHADOWFACE (JACKY LAVISH’ SLOW DOWN)

What I’m listening to nowadays. Swedish teenagers. Part of the Yung Lean crew.


Farhot – Represent Heart


Mark Ronson – Stop Me (Kissy Sell Out Remix)
