Here’s an ode to dj’s for being the ones who remind us of music we forgot existed or introducing us to new tunes, that make a dull January sky seem a bit brighter.
Thank you Christian d’Or for the reminder.
Thank you Dixon for the introduction.
Most of the music I post belongs to the energy kicker category but here’s one for the contemplative state of mind.
That makes you feel like a minute contains more than 60 seconds.
Obviously (as a new wave fan) Tuxedomoon’s In a Manner of Speaking is a given power ballad on my meditative soundtrack.
For a slightly more sensual feeling go for this cover by Nouvelle Vague.
No, not talking about me. Agnes Obel.
Obviously a good combination. Denmark and Berlin.

You know the old saying: “There’s no such things as bad weather, only bad clothes”. I’d extend it to “There’s no such things as bad weather, only bad attitude”.
Listening to awesome music when riding my bike, makes the rain a little less wet.
I never had the urge to share my compassion/”sorrow” on the World Wide Web when prominent people (strangers) passed away. But I really felt sad when I learned this morning, that Steve Jobs had passed away.
Somehow I wanted to show my respect…
If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favour and spend fifteen minutes on watching this video where Steve talks about “Connecting the Dots”, “Love & Loss” and “Death” to the Stanford graduates back in 2005.
And then remember, it’s a wonderful life…
On my playlist while away…
Join IntergalactiXX to get daily sugar frosted music treats (my favorite: this Wednesday’s track).
A proper way to start a Monday. I’m blown away (get it?) by this track from Laid Back.
My fellow countrymen belong to the fine breed of brilliant musicians who made music for the 2000-ten’s back in the eighties.
Kudos to DJ Agneska for introducing this track to me.
