This is one of the first songs I heard from the Chemical Brothers, that they had first released under their original name the Dust Brothers. I said on an earlier post that the Prodigy got me into electronic music but I was wrong, these guys did and the Prodigy was a definite close second.
Any song by the Chemical Brothers reminds me of my sisters who I have seen them with a few times, most memorable was the Big Day Out in Sydney in 2000. I’m pretty sure I also saw them the next night at the Hordern Pavilion. The good old days when I could go out two nights in a row and be fine the next day. 🙂
This song is from their first album and I bought it on CD, second hand from this awesome second hand store in Blacktown (Western Sydney). I found some great music at that place.
These two guys can do no wrong in my eyes. The music never ages and is still danceable and relevant today.
47. Chemical Beats – The Chemical Brothers
This song came out just before I went to the UK on a holiday in 2016. For some reason it has a calming effect on my daughter which was brilliant as she was having some, lets call it ‘behaviour issues’ at the time. So we were on holidays in London and this song was my saviour….
My favourite line from this song is “this is a low flying panic attack” maybe this reflects how I felt every time I thought a tantrum was looming perhaps…..thank you Radiohead for this beautiful song.
Check out the link to the video clip for this song, wow!
46. Burn the witch – Radiohead
I woke up to sad news today, RIP Prince. Not really sure what to write about someone so amazing, creative, legendary and a musical genius.
I grew up listening to his music and this song to me encourages you to live life to the fullest and celebrate the great things you have like friends, family, etc. There were so many songs I wanted to post about but this one today has meaning for me, while I write this with tears in my eyes.
Lets celebrate Prince, RIP.
44. Let’s Go Crazy – Prince
Its amazing how controversial this song was when it was released in 1989….protests, boycotts, etc. Its also amazing that I had no idea as a 13/14 year old girl what this song was really about…..oh how innocent I was.
I think this is the song that got me into electronic music!
I love this film clip, makes me want to start taking hip hop classes. The song is great and Hermitude just keep getting better, latest album is awesome.
In 1995, Rebirth of Cool Phive was released and I discovered some awesome tracks, one of which was the Prodigy remix of Method Man’s song Release Yo’Delf. It was amongst some awesome music by Ben Harper, Tricky, The Beastie Boys, MC Solaar, Massive Attack, Coldcut, Portishead, Kruder & Dorfmeister, etc.
I haven’t played this album for years but I think its back on the playlist, 20 years after its release.
Dolly Parton is an awesome country singer. I don’t generally like country music but this is a classic song. I rediscovered this song when the Prodigy brought out a playlist of their favourite songs (Back to Mine – Liam Howlett, the Prodigy) this being one of them.
I discovered the Presets in 2005 and have been in love with their music ever since. I have seen them play in small venues in 2005 in Canberra to massive festivals such as Field Day on the 1st January 2010 and Groovin the Moo in Canberra in 2014. Always amazing, this is one of my favourite songs but to be honest My People, Down, Down, Down and a few others come in a close 2nd.
Happy F&%king Valentines Day……
