AHA! Rem Chumbawamba.

Posted by shanoah on September 5, 2008

All right, no particular theme today, just assorted music:

Take On Me – AHA

This one I’m honestly playing more for the video then the music. I just love the crossover between reality and the drawn world here.

Tubthumping – Chumbawamba

This song just makes me happy for some reason. Maybe I just like the same music that’s being sung about. This clearly isn’t the album version, which starts with:

Truth is, I thought it mattered. I thought that music mattered. But does it bollocks! Not compared to how people matter.

Vaguely missed that when I heard this version…

Orange Crush – R.E.M.

And then there’s this song. Always liked it, but I’ve never been totally sure what it’s about. Is it about the drink “Orange Crush”? Is it about Agent Orange, in Vietnam? Is it really about anything at all?

Don’t know, but it is a cool song…
