It’s Joanna Newsom, covering Sandy Denny, and there’s an owl in the video, if I pretend it’s not an ad for clothes then it becomes perfect…
And here’s Sandy playing it
Alex Chilton with Yo La Tengo
Lou Reed, John Cale & Nico – Femme Fatale
The Velvet Underground
My last blog post mentioned (and possibly posted) some “fruity jazz” – here’s some fruity rock instead…
Faust – No Harm
I have no idea why daddy needs to “take the banana” on Sundays… and, I assume, not on other days?
The Wedding Present – Kennedy
Too much apple pie makes you lose your love of life?
Luna – Orange Peel
Joanna Newsom – Peach, Plum, Pear
A Head Full of Wishes: Mp3: Lost tracks #9: Maggie Cheung – Strawberry Stain
We’re not allowed to watch the next episode until I’ve blogged about this one and Hazel’s getting impatient. It ought to be easy because I love Doppelgangland, and who doesn’t, but it’s easier to write half-arsed blog posts about episodes you don’t like… an episode you love deserves more. Sadly this one won’t get more. Just assume this is a beautiful and eloquent post about one of my top 5 Buffy episodes!
In reality it’ll be a couple of quotes and a screengrab and a music video that is vaguely related (I have no idea what yet so it may be totally unrelated!)
I’m eleven hundred and twenty years old! Just gimme a frickin’ beer!
Well, other bands know more than three chords. Your professional bands can play up to six, sometimes seven completely different chords.
That’s just, like, fruity jazz bands.
Soft Machine isn’t fruity jazz and I’ve no idea about chords but there’s a lot going on…
So many posts turn into gratuitous Willow love but I just did a post about a Willow episode and didn’t mention Willow… until now
Argh! I just learnt that the didgeridoo on Rolf Harris’s Sun Arise is actually eight double basses! So my “one shot” post will only have one didgeridoo…
Kate Bush – The Dreaming
But here’s what is undoubtedly the best song ever that has eight double basses on it!
Rolf Harris – Sun Arise
And here’s a version with a real didgeridoo
… well actually it’s not too bad…
… we start with a dream which is Rules of Buffy #3 – If something doesn’t seem quite right… it’s a dream
… we also have Wesley and the Watchers Council heavies not killing Angel when they had a chance which sort of obeys Rules of Buffy #2 – If you get an opportunity to despatch a particularly nasty demon… don’t, it’ll probably work out fine
we then rattle through a half-decent episode where lots of story happens, which is a relief because the story has been in need of picking up.
Despite that… I can think of nothing to say, so here’s Willow… in her dungarees…
… and here’s sad Willow in the lav…
… and here’s Nina in a different lav…
The Pastels – Over My Shoulder
We Are Not Adult Orientated by Stereolab
Slipping Into Something by The Feelies
… and here’s a great (recent) live version – played quicker but still six minutes!
Boy Meets Girl, So What by McCarthy
Home Again by The Auteurs
Five Cornered Drone (Crispy Duck) by Yo La Tengo
I really, really want to know.
