Here’s something for the weekend. Best song EVER. Gimme gimme more can kiss my butt crack. How come nobody makes music like this these days? You *HAVE* to watch this video of Freddie Mercury at the Wembley Stadium. The response from the crowd it the beginning.. sooo powerful, sooo moving. So amazing! Watch him perform. I have no words.
Pressure pushing down on me… pressing down on you no man ask for. Under pressure that burns a building down. Splits a family in two… puts people on streets. Um ba ba bay Um ba ba bay Dee day duh Ee day duh thats ok. It’s the terror of knowing what this world is about. Watching some good friends screaming let me out! Pray tomorrow takes me high high higher. Pressure on people… people on streets
Insanity laughs under pressure we’re cracking… Can’t we give ourselves one more chance? Why can’t we give love that one more chance? Why can’t we give love give love give love? Give love give love give love give love give love give love?
Cause love’s such an old fashioned word… and love dares you to care… for the people on the edge of the night… And love dares you to change our way. Of caring about ourselves… This is our last dance… This is our last dance… This is ourselves.
Sing after me: I like them black boys. I like them white boys. I like them Asian boys. I like them mixed race boys. I even like those scrawny scottish into pop music, but not like, sorta like pop dance electro music. Now baby. I’ve got a lot of love to give. And i’ve been over… over-subscribed with relationships. See you’ve got… a little thing i haven’t seen before. But i must warn ya… that i can’t help but play around for sure, for sure. Because… I got all the boys, I’ve got all the boys. I’ve got all the boys, I’ve got all the boys.
OK. I love Karl Lagerfeld’s spring 2008 runway soundtrack more than anyone else so far — I’m still waiting for my internet friends to send me Lanvin. Anyhoo, let’s get onto the goods. LCD Soundsystem is a classic/old Karl fave whereas I’m quite surprised Karl used Dragonette. I *LOVE* Dragonette!!! Uncle Karl never ceases to amaze me. You can listen to the full Karl Lagerfeld runway soundtrack by clicking the graphic below. A new window should pop up, this way you can listen to the soundtrack as you browse around my site.
LCD Soundsystem – Get Innocuous!
Dragonette – The Boys *** BEST TRACK EVER! ***
Soho Dolls – Prince Harry
Dragonette is one of my faves… here’s the full, uncut version of the their track "The Boys".
PS. Get innocuous! You can’t normalize, don’t it make you feel alive?
Here’s a few tracks you may want to listen to. I still can’t get over the Spring/Summer 2008 Versace video. Nothing excites me more than a good ol’ high energy, high gloss, plexiglass runway after watching dozens of identikit white backdrop/white runway fashion shows. Tanya D. is amazing, Natasha Poly, Carmen Kass and MariaCarla Boscono = priceless. The fiercest, however, is no other than Viviane Orth.
That girl really surprised me… bitch is totally fierce and she really owned that runway. There’s this part on the video when they played that "watch me work it, I’m perfect" track and some of the models were dull as hell you’d think they’re walking on the moon. BAM! comes Sasha with her funny pose and WHAM BAM WHAM! comes Viviane Orth in that white dress, hair flying all over the place as she swished past (NOT ONCE BUT TWICE) Isabeli Fontana who needs crack. I don’t know about you but does crystal meth come in a butt suppository format cause some of those girls need energy on that runway. Whatevs. They’re all pretty and you’re not. Versace forever!
Trick & Kubic Feat. Valeska – Easy (BEST TRACK EVER. Listen to this in its entirety. Go go go mincing down the street on this track. Heck, I am so gonna put this song on autorepeat and go on a 5-kilometer powermincing session. You know, I always get flak from people saying I walk on the street wayyy too fast but what they don’t know is… mincing is a great way to lose weight. Anyway… light a cigarette, swish those hips, get your hair flying in the air. Work those legs, one foot in front of the other! Go 100 miles per hour! Always remember that every day is a fashion show, life is a runway. IT’S EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Simian Mobile Disco – Sleep Deprivation (I know. I originally wanted this but after that EASY track, I’m no longer obsessed.)
Pig & Dan – Unreplacable
*** FOR SUNDAY ***
Anakelly – Under My Thumb
Feist – My Moon, My Man (Carolina Herrera used this track for her spring/summer 2008 fashion show)
And there you have it. I hope you enjoy this weekend’s selections. If you need help using the mp3 player, click here for instructions.
Want to know what’s keeping me groovin’ these days? Here’s a few tracks I have on my ipod that I play whenever I mince my chubby brown gaysian ass down the street. From now on moving forward, all you need to do is to click the graphic on one of the columns on the right and a new window will pop up with the player on it, this way, you can listen to music while you browse around my site. Do keep in mind that the mp3 player is kinda confusing, especially the controls but this will have to make do until I find a better player. Anyway, it’s not like you’re 7 years old and new to the net — I think you know how to figure things out.

Mauricio sent me an mp3 of this track, Soy tu Venus, and I can’t stop playing it! BEST SONG EVER! OMG I love these ladies — yes, they’re ladies! Old women at that. I thought they were drag queens at first and then I found out that they’re actually disco queens in the 70s. Check out the live version on this video clip. Ignore all the swedish mumbo jumbo on the first minute and hit fast forward. Heck, check them out strip in the end!!! You won’t regret it, I swear. In fact, this is a feel-good song. It brought back a few memories from the past the first time I heard it, like the time I went to this place called Amanpulo here in the third world with an ex and then like we just went on the beach late at night with 3 bottles of dom in tow. We got soo drunk, we danced on the beach, under the full moon, just the two of us. Bah. Anyway, yeah, the violiny-thingie reminds me of Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2007! John Galliano should dress these queens STAT! Play it a few times and you’ll be hooked, like me!
Sing, sing, sing after me: Last night, it’s in the air… and I swear, it’s everywhere! Soy tu venus, por esta noche! Your private dancer in the moonlight. A little disco, a little salsa, can you feeeeeeeeel the heat?
I’ll try to upload the mp3 file and share it to y’all as soon as my internet connection is fixed. It’s crappy again!
I love, love, LOVE Roisin Murphy. That woman is iconic. Remember Moloko from the dark ages? Man, those were the days. IMO, people should listen more to the likes of Roinsin Murphy and Sophie Ellis-Bextor instead of that disastrous give me give me more, give me more, give me give me more airbrushed abs and mental institution faggot crap. Anyway, Roisin Murphy has a new track coming out next month called "Let Me Know".
Check out the outfit! My god, I love the white hat and the black cape thingie connected with that skirt. Whatever that is. Yes, the one with the shoulder pads! Soo brilliant! Mich Dulce if you are reading this, will you please make me a hat like that???? I want!!!
Sing after me: Let me know when you’re lonely babe. Let me know when you’re lonely baby!!
PS. Just in case you’ve missed it, check out Roisin’s other track (perfect for mincing late at night), Overpowered. Who knew Gareth Pugh is actually WEARABLE?
This is why I truly truly love love love love teh internets — thanks to Flamboyant in Sexy Sweden, I discovered this amazing, amazing website called Stockholm Beat Connection where I spent an hour or two downloading and listening to loads of lovely tracks and remixes.
If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be able to find this gorgeous remix (Ocelot remix) of Young Love – Discotech. Aren’t Finnish people the coolest people ever???? Just kidding. Click click click to download, listen to it in its entirety and tell me what you think. I know it’s old but I fuckinglove it!!! I finally have a new track to use the next time I go mincing down the street!! Pout those lips, sway your hips and WORK IT LIKE YOU OWN IT!
PS. Get down, get down, meet me at the disco! PPSS. The only thing I hate about Stockholm Beat Connection is that they support those nasty PETArds. I **HATE** **HATE** **HATE****HATE** PETA but that’s ok, I’m willing to "agree to disagree" on this one because a) Swedes are hot and b) I love music.
