Same song different artist - Everybody's gotta learn sometimes

I have a soft spot for the Korgis "Everybody's gotta learn sometimes." So it may seem surprsing that I like just as equally the newer version by Beck which appeared on the "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" soundtrack. I thought that Beck's version was perfect for the movie. Filled with despair and haunting which was quite fitting considering it is essentailly a movie about people who can't help but fall in love time and again - even if they are wrong for each other.

Sneaker Pimps, 6 Underground

Remedy for a severe case of Mondayitis

  • Take 2 shiny headphones and insert into ears.
  • Select 6 Underground by British trip hop band Sneaker Pimps on your Mp3 player.
  • Press play and wait for the desired effect. You may need to repeat this over a period of approximately 3 hours.

Contraindications: if you are a lover of Garth Brooks, Bonnie Raitt or Celine Dion then you are predisposed to craptacular music taste. You will therefore be unable to appreciate the Sneaker Pimps.

Massive Attack - Teardrops

I really love this song but if one more TV show (or TV show promo) uses it for crappy commercial purposes I am going to go postal. It is times like these that I must relocate my point of reference back to the song itself before it was bastardised.

So I proudly present my reignited love for "Teardrops" by Massive Attack.

Pink -Most Girls

The recent Grammy awards was probably the best awards show I have seen in quite some time. Showmanship is back in fashion and I am loving it. Notable mention (grudgingly) goes to Lady Gaga for hooking up with Sir Elton for a very fine performance/mash up of Speechless and Your Song. It was also good to see MJ's kids accept an award on his behalf. God love them, they are 12 and 11 respectively in front of millions of people worlwide. They have good reason to be a little nervous but I think Prince did an awesome job.

The lady that blew my mind was Pink who once again sung attached to a trapeze style contraption and proceeded to sing live upside down and spinning!!! Her body is absolutely ripped and she sure can belt out a tune. I think the little poppettes like Britney need to take a long look at someone like Pink and start to actually work for their performance money. Pink sure does.

Speaking of live performances I think I was only Australian that didn't see Pink live. She did like about 3 million shows across the country. Seriously... 3 million..she was very busy :)

So today I have linked my favourite Pink song 'Most Girls", which I think was one of her very first single releases.

The Living Years

This song is one of my Mum's favourites so I am dedicating this to her today during a great time of trial.

To my Mum, I love you so much. You are the kindest most loving person I have ever known. You shouldn't have to deal with the evil people of this world but you do with such grace. Mum stay strong. I love you xxx
