Re: What are you listening to right now?

Getting my late '80's/early '90's on. Tom's Diner (7" Version, Suzanne Vega/DNA)...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j83yDTd9LvU

I think I'll need to follow this up with a few tracks...

Soul II Soul - Keep On Moving
C+C Music Factory - Everybody Dance Now
Bell Biv DeVoe - Poison
Nina Cherry - Buffalo Soldier
Madonna - Express Yourself
Technotronic - Pump Up the Jam

And maybe my favorite (there's a KRS-One track I'm forgetting at the moment)...

Snap! - The Power

Thanks to Zappa, who never met his idol neither by phone nor in real life. Varése wrote him a letter.
The album Lumpy Gravy is some sort of Edgard Varèse music collage.

This morning, I keep listening to the song "Suzanne", sung by Roberta Flack. Many others have covered this one as well. You can read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzanne_% … en_song%29

Got my first wireless mouse about 6 months ago, wondering if I should also do the same with headphones. Think forgetting is something we might all do!

Zappa & The Ensemble Modern
Welcome to the United States
Oh my, as a german i can only share my feelings about that in my own language:
Wenn Frank etwas angepackt hat dann aber richtig. Ich bin in Mainz geboren und mit der "Fassenacht" gross geworden, also ein echter "Meenzer Bub" und deshalb verstehe ich jeden Witz und jede Anspielung auf meine Heimat und ganz speziell meine Region.
Das Frank das verstanden hat ist nur ein weiteres Beispiel seiner Genialität.
Das bekloppte dabei ist: Welcome to the United States = Willkommen in Deutschland

hilarious!
and the guy has such a wonderful german accent.

so this was early 90s?
...yes, the wikipedia page seems to support that timeline.
btw, Ensemble Modern was a german band; i'm sure they told zappa something about what fassenacht is.
a masterpiece nevertheless.
also, wasn't zappa cultural attaché for the czech republic during that time? that would put him quite close geographically.

german "classical" carnival is a grotesque distortion of a military parade meant to be funny & jovial. it's an abomination.
thankfully, many "alternative" approaches have existed for a long time. i used to be very fond of the participatory Geisterzug.
i myself am from Köln originally, could tell you some about both aspects of Karneval... that and the alcohol abuse... roll
