Since last month’s song of the month was such a lackluster experience, I called on my Facebook friends to give me some good things for July. They did!
From my high school friend (who posts a lot on FB about music.)
“Who doesn’t need some deep house/electronic in their life for the summer?”
Fakin’ It (featuring Ofelia K.)
Kaskade & Felix Cartel
From my local friend who called my attention to this song:
Band of Horses
Another local friend suggested this mash-up.
(Which is sadly not available for purchase.)
“Ghosts Over Baghdad”
Deadmau5s vs. Outkast by DJ Ellipsis
Regular commenter Jan suggested this, which I loved. And the video has Ron Funches in it! He used to be a local comedian, before he moved to LA.
This is totally a summer song.
“I’m loving Justin Timberlake’s new one:
“Can’t stop the feeling!”
Regular commenter Kathleen featured this song on her blog. The video is bizarre, but I love the driving intensity of the song.
“Even if I Don’t”
And when you see the movie Keanu, you laugh and you fawn over the kitten. And then you come home and download you some George Michael.
This song came out in high school and was one of those songs that gave me a promise of adulthood that was more or less fulfilled. This song told me that eventually I would be on my own and making my own choices. And eventually I was.
