I thought I’d get away from anime for a minute, and play some songs by a lady named Nina Hagen.
First, here’s a song called Hold Me, with a music video at Jim Morrison’s grave. The line that sticks out in my mind is “I can’t sing a gospel, I’m a white chick…”.
You may think she is somewhat strange after watching that video. And you’d be wrong. She isn’t just somewhat strange, she’s probably the queen of strange. Here is Nina singing Naturträne live at Rockpalast in her native German.
Don’t expect me to explain the pacifiers hanging from her ears, the verging on inhuman shapes her mouth seems to distort into occasionally, or the fact that she’s clucking like a chicken by the end of the song.
That’s half the fun of it.

Just so this site isn’t totally dead, I thought I’d torture everyone with another bizarre anime thing. At first glance, I’d think it was IOSYS, but it’s actually some manner of Vocaloid thing of a song by LamazeP and noya.
The song’s titled in youtube as [Touhou PV] PoPiPo- [Tewi & Reisen], and appears to feature scary-looking vegetable juice.

While I’ve played Oingo Boingo’s “Little Girls” here before, I thought this Azumanga Daioh AMV of the song was pretty well done. (And it won first place in the comedy category at Nekocon X) That and I wanted to try to get back in the habit of posting here occassionally…
Not work friendly due to the opening.

I’ve been rather busy the past couple weeks, and have been doing a shift 12 hours off from my normal shift, so haven’t really felt like posting anything.
I should be back to a more normal shift tomorrow, even if it is 5×8 rather then 4×10, so we’ll see how that goes.
In the meantime, here is one of those crazy IOSYS songs, Neko Mike Reimu. Enjoy!

Today’s my birthday, but I’m sort of spreading it out over a few days, so nothing really too related to that in this post.
There were two songs I was going to post here today, though.
First, here is Stream of Conciousness, by Gabriel Ananda. This track really builds nicely. The video goes with it pretty well, too.
And if you recall my posting the song Peacebone a while back, by Animal Collective, here’s another song by them, titled Banshee Beat.

And here we are with the Muppet show again. Here we are with Jean Pierre Rampal acting out the story of the Pied Piper. Only the rats weren’t happy with the story and changed it. And then suddenly everyone starts singing a cover of ‘Ease On Down The Road’.
Well, you can tell Jean Pierre is very talented, and the cover isn’t bad. And I love how random it is…
Of course, the song Ease On Down The Road comes from the musical The Wiz, and fun as the version on the Muppet Show might be, it’s hard to beat the version with Michael Jackson & Diana Ross…

Well, today I decided to play a song from 1963 by Johnny Cymbal called Mr. Bass Man. It’s rather fun, though it can get a bit annoying at times. Which might go a way to explaining why I have three versions of it in todays post. :)
This is the original.
Now, as it happens, the Muppet Show covered it, with Scooter as lead singer, and The Electric Mayhem backing him. This versions fairly faithful to the song, and is a good cover.
Now, if I wanted to do a bad cover of this song, a proper one would involve coming up with a J-Pop version of it sung in Engrish, sort of a “All Your Bass Man Are Belongs To Us” version. And as it happens, I managed to find a cover that fits that. Play the following version at your own risk. ^_^

Still me. My neat thing for the day/week/whatever is going to have to be this be this music video I found by DJ Gigi D’Agostino with the wonderful title of Bla Bla Bla. It has this nifty stick figure animation going of a guy walking towards a head with sharp pointy teeth.
Apparently the vocal samples are from a UK band named Stretch’s song “Why Did You Do It?”. According to the wikipedia article, the creator of the song said the song was “a piece I wrote thinking of all the people who talk and talk without saying anything”. Which is as good of an explanation of the song as any. It’s pretty catchy, too.

Someone seems to have done a full parody of Fiddler on the Roof as Shuggoth on the Roof.
Cthulhu, tentacles, and Arkham, all set to music. Seems pretty well done, too. Here’s a song entitled Tentacles, which gives a fair overview of Arkham:
And here is the song If I Were a Deep One. Nice parody of If I were a Rich Man. Love the lines where he is singing ‘blub blub blub’ so seriously…:

Well, I expect Sean’ll be occupied for a bit, so I’ll go themeless for a little while.
Back in 2008, I posted Darcy Nair singing a song called Bonnie Lassie, and I mentioned it was written by Tony Cuffe.
Well, since then, I’ve actually bought the Tony Cuffe album it was on. His version’s very good. But, as it happens, the only song Tony Cuffe sings that’s on youtube is the title track of that album, Sae Will We Yet. So I thought I’d play that.
And he’s not referring to a drug deal in the first line of the song. “crack” in context is entertaining conversation. Or something like that.
