Song and Lyric of the Week

Mating Game
“Dance with me across the ocean floor
Sail away to heaven's open door
Step right up you're the next contestant
In this sweet charade
Take a number, wait while I twist your fate

On the mating game
Mating game

Hold me close enough to drink my rose
The devil in my pocket turned to gold
Sorry to warn you, you're in a daze
Tonight I'll love you, but tomorrow go away

Step right up who's the next contestant
In this sweet charade?
Take a number, wait while I tease you sane

On the mating game
Mating game"

heh.

Music Love of the Week

They sound like a hybrid of Zero 7 and Pink Martini – yum. But, more importantly, I found this band through Nic.

Ah, yes, Nic Harcourt.

See, being a self-admitted music junky it is increasingly hard for me to get a good fix. You know, find some tunes that are new and inspiring to me and give me the juice. Nic is my best pusher and he never lets me down. He plays a lot of the stuff I already love but then slides new great stuff into the mix every day.

Nic Harcourt puts together a live program called Morning Becomes Eclectic weekdays on KCRW out of Los Angeles from 9a to 12p PST. They have a live performance by a different band at 11:20a during each show as well. This man broadcasts the best damn stuff being put out right now and yes, you too, can listen via online stream. But there’s more! KCRWmusic.com has most of the archived shows. You can subscribe to the show via podcast on iTunes and even get the free Top Tune of the day subscription via iTunes. They have made it easy for you to get hooked so, please, do yourself this favor.

If you are interested in a good reference book, well, Nic has written that, too. It is called Music Lust and is filled with excellent suggestions. Buy it.

But maybe Beck said it best when he said, "Nic is a rare, forward-thinking voice in radioland...One still feels they will run into the unexpected or stumble onto some loose jewel with his broadcasts."

Damn, I wish I'd said that.
