Haha, I figured 'well that isn't very original'.
Clicked play. And listened through the whole song .

Good song! Now I'm listening to the original to compare them:

The Kinks - You Really Got Me



Before that I was listening to a song I always enjoy when I hear it on the radio, one reason being that this song uses the word "moot" in it. I think this may be only song in existence that uses the word "moot."

Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl

Yes, I agree, Holly!

I'm very amused by the video (below) since the video isn't at *all* what I envisioned based on the music. I always imagined the singers looking like Japanese robots...kind of like Devo. Instead what we get is a fake Medieval romp. I used to think the song was cool...but now....

Bah. I still think it's cool. This song has probably helped multitudes of shy, overly self-conscious tween years kids such as I was get over their inhibitions and actually allow themselves to dance at school parties. That's a good thing.

Heh, yeah I've always thought that video was a bad fit for the song as well. I don't know if I ever pictured Japanese robots when listening to it but I sure as hell never envisioned a midget jester running around in a medieval town during a May Day celebration either. Given the choice I definitely would've preferred your concept.

I was recording a tape with a lot of Django Reinhardt on it for a forummember.

He's not much of an audiophile himself and he said: "This is probably the first premium quality recording I've ever had". But well... It's Django Reinhardt, it's recordings from the late 30's to the early 50's. It sounds awful .

So now I'm recording him a little tape (13cm reel, half an our of music) with
1. The Coral - Walking in the Winter (LP)
2. Calexico - The News about William (CD)
3. Jamiroquai - Drifting Along (CD)
4. Arbouretum - Highwayman (LP)
5. Sleepy Sun - Rigamaroo (LP)
6. Jimi Hendrix - Little Wing (LP)
7. The Upsessions - Dorothee Blackswan (LP)
8. Belle & Sebastian - I Fought in a War (LP)

Hope he likes it

Bingo! At first while watching the video I thought maybe it was a spoof of the real thing.

While thinking about Van Halen's cover of "You Really Got Me," I asked myself what female singers have made songs that are equivalently carnal, since it often seems as if most love/lust songs are by men. I came up with three so far: Shakira's "Shewolf" (which I hate) and the following two, which I like. So now I'm listening to these:

Blondie - In the Flesh
Sweet but sensual at the same time.



Divinyls - I touch myself
Very blatant. Perhaps a good female counterpart to Frankie Goes to Hollywood's infamous, "Relax (Don't do it)" which I remember seeing in concert in Germany.



So which is better, "I touch myself" or "Relax (Don't do it)?" My vote goes to the Divinyls because she is a little more holistic in her approach to desire.

Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Relax (Don't do it)
