Bill's girlfriend tries to be something as she puts this song on. Eighties ironic? Funny? In the know with bands with great names? This song and its video are very amusing, and short. Great lyrics - flipping an eighties synth song with modern themes and lingo.

Year: 2000
Track Description:
1st date. I first heard this song near the end of Ma femme est une actrice, with Charlotte Gainsbourg and her husband Yvan. The song has a St. Etienne, late-60's, electro-lounge vibe to it. Love love love the lyrics.
"You won't find it by yourself
You're gonna need some help
And you won't fail with me around
Come on let's go

I will tell you if you change
And who's been saying things
It's hard to tell who is real in here
Come on let's go"

Track 2 from From the Top of the World
Length: 00:04:39
Year: 2008
Track Description:
From mybrightestdiamond.com/2008/09/ "After having fled Germany to escape the Nazi’s in 1933, composer Kurt Weill penned the music for “Youkali:Tango Habenera”. Years later, Roger Fernay added lyrics describing a vagabond trip to an island of bliss called Youkali, whereupon landing a fairy would act as one’s personal tour guide. Youkali is a land of happiness and fulfilled desire, a place where all the stars shine brighter. But the dreamy mists dissipate in the second verse, as life progresses only tediously while poor human souls seek to escape to the mysterious utopia in vain." Beautiful song. Reminds me of Edith Piaf. Shara (MBD) plays The Queen on The Decemberist's Hazards of Love album.

Track 12 from Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Body Workout
Length: 00:02:37
Year: 1984
Track Description:
Exercise time! Bill plays his handy workout LP. Vetiver covers "Burning for You", so I was investigating the song and found this exercise version of the original song. It sat in my cart for a while, and then Bill told me to add it. The song plays in the background as Arnie counts off twelve reps for the tricep dips, followed by bend over rolls. "Down. Up. Down. Up." Brilliant. If you don't feel like exercising, the song serves as a nice intermission. Go get an orange soda for me, while you're up.

Length: 00:03:43
Year: 2004
Track Description:
I was looking for quirky songs and remembered The Incredible Moses Leroy. The album I have of his didn't contain anything I thought would work, so I look to see if he had new material... yes, yes he did. Less quirky, but 100% perfect for this mix. I absolutely love the atmosphere of the song. The piano and background vocals paint such a wonderful landscape. This is a from the "robot" to someone he misses.

"When I heard our song on the radio
It reminded me of us
Another love song on the radio
Another full moon broken heart

I spent a lifetime on the open road
Between the lion and a farm
You gave me oil, I was a rusty load
You even helped me find my heart"

Excellent find.
