"Push It" - JB and His Ukulele
Here’s my “Push It”, originally written to replace “Push It” by Salt-n-Pepa, the song of choice for people in my workplace to play, over and over, when they are deploying code. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to replace that with a melancholy ukulele song.
This is the vocal track of David Bowie and Freddie Mercury on “Under Pressure”. There is no instrumental track— this recording is just their vocals, as they recorded them. It’s hugely instructive both as to how they perform and the effects that were applied to their vocals. Add it up and it makes the song the song. LOVE.
"Got My Mind Set On You" - George Harrison by way of JB
This song was eeeeeverywhere when it came out. And Mtv was super hot, so they showed this video of Sir George sitting in a big ol’ leather chair in like, a den of some kind, festooned with all of these artifacts that started to come to life as he sang. Blah blah teleblah indeed!
"Graceland" - Paul Simon by way of JB
And she said
"Losing love is like a window in your heart.
Everybody sees you’re blown apart.”
