Time For Another Tunes On Tuesday

 While I recover from the exhausting hosting duties of the Garden Photos Event - which I thought went fabulously, so thank you once again to everyone who took part - I thought I'd share some of the "snappy tunes" that I was listening to while putting the event together (thank you for the suggestion, Mr Tonking*).

 Hopefully you'll find something you like amongst this rather eclectic collection.  So, in no particular order... 


"Moonlight Rendezvous" - BEAST IN BLACK (discovered at the Star Trek forum that I frequent)

 

"Cry Little Sister" | Theme from The Lost Boys - Gerard McMann (love the film, and this song!)

 

Strictly Pro-Dancers Halloween Results Show routine (I love this performance!  Kai and Nadiya are beautiful dancers, but King Gorka steals the show.  I'm not sure if this BBC video will be available outside the UK, so I found the music that they dance to - an arrangement of "Ode To Joy" - and popped it below.

"Ode To Joy" | Epic Trailer Version - performed by L'Orchestra Cinématique, and written by Ludwig Van Beethoven, of course.

 

"Sister Ray" - Foxes (discovered at Jon's, here)

 

"All Night Operator" (Pt. 1) - Goldfrapp (I'm not sure that they ever got around to a Part 2?)

 

"I'm Not Your Hero" | The Murderbot Diaries Animatic - Tegan and Sara (another one that I've listened to over and over again since first coming across it at Tor.com last year)

 

"Tokyo" - White Lies (first featured at the beginning of October here, and listened to again and again and again!)

 

"Rain Down Love" - Freemasons feat. Siedah Garrett (a perennial favourite)

 

* For the longest time, I read uptonking as Up Tonking rather than Upton King.  Ms Scarlet had the same issue and noted it somewhere a while back, but I can't remember where otherwise I'd've linked to it.

 

P.S. I'll reply to the comments of the Garden Photos Event Finale (and this post, if it gets any) tomorrow - and visit your latest offerings, too!  (Been a bit busy the last couple of days and today...)

  2. I absolutely love that Freemasons song! [And video - which is a camp-as-tits tribute to Daft Punk, of course...] Jx

    1. It's certainly been one of my most listened to this year.

      [But of course!]

  3. Fun stuff. I agree about Freemasons. Siedah had that duet with MJ that went #1 here, stateside. Tegan and Sara have certainly carved their own path, huh? And that Goldfrapp? Not my fave, but any Goldfrapp is good Goldfrapp. Kizzes.

    1. I must admit, I don't know anything else that Tegan and Sara have done (I really should remedy that) - I only know them from that Murderbot animatic.
      You're right about Goldfrapp - I don't think I dislike anything they've done (although, there are one or two tracks that I might skip past if I'm not in the mood).

  4. For gawd's sake, take some time off from blogging. You've worked hard on the Garden Photos Event and you deserve it. Get into the gincuzzi with Maddie and RELAX. (Although I don't think relaxation is what Maddie has in mind.)

  6. Ah yes, I snuck into the movie theater to see The Lost Boys as I was a tad underage to be going to it without an adult. The benefit of being Fae is that no one knows how old you are and you're approximately the age they expect you to be. I like the Goldfrapp too! I haven't heard of them before, but you know, I toe the line between sexy dangerous and innocent rebel.

    1. Ah, Goldfrapp are one of my favourites! And they do have a smattering of sexy dangerousness along with rebellious innocence, so I think you'll like more of their music.

  7. Could I just sit quietly with a glass of nicely chilled bubbly...?

    1. Of course you can, Dinah. "Moonlight Rendezvous" didn't agree with you, hmm?

Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
