What's Everyone Listening To Right Now This Second, Right NOW!

Okay.....what can you hear the second you read this?
Me, I'm mostly hearing the song "Young At Heart", as performed by Bluebells & King Creosote, live from the recent Homecoming gig, which I just downloaded from the always fruitful Peenko blog.

You?

for purposes of accuracy, i'd like to point out that whilst writing that last post, the KC stopped (it wasnae any good - deleted!) and "New Dawn" by Withered Hand replaced it. In between I could vaguely hear the rain.

the second I read that.. I heard the computer hum (too loud) a can of grolsch splutter into life and the sound of my son going "...47 48 49 50 51 ah aaaa um zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ah a a ahhhhhhhh"

yippieeeee tunes time... that last bit was me...

I'm listening to Torches by Lightning Strike Lightning, on this blog I discovered recently:

Actually I thought this blog might be of interest to a few 'Spillers. Hard to describe the kind of music that's on there, reminds me of Pocahaunted a bit.

Lego(s) clicky clacking, and the music from L'atanlante. I'm finding a clip for Nilpferd's very inspiring choice of Clip Joint subjects. This film is so freakin beautiful.

bethnoir said...

Right now, "The Fool on the Hill" by the Beatles. Not very contemporary, but the kids are up and they always ask for the Beatles.

Blimpy said...

@shane - i've listened to "New Dawn" 4 times today already - i dled it from Kowalskiy blog:

The Famous Grouse tune on the TV advert. No idea what it's called.

Makinavaja said...

The nine o'clock news on Spanish TV - politicians lying, that sort of thing! And Mrs Maki (so good to have her home after the scare last weekend!) and Maki junior deriding the lot of them!

lambretinha said...

It's Joe Jackson - Slow Song (and wondering why didn't think of this one for Songs about Tiredness...)

Excellent news, Maki! Congratulations to you and all the Navajas! (or is it Navajos?... you're an Atleti fan after all!)

"New Dawn" by Withered Hand is good.. like the end.. enjoy it when a band think - fuck it END now ra ra .. the other song I really like the words to... enjoyed yep.

nilpferd said...

Very nice Atalante post on CJ, Steen..

I'm listening to Billie Holiday sing Darn that dream, to unwind after a long day and get my own dreams prepared for a magical bridge clip or two..

ToffeeBoy said...

No music at all. The Fulham v CSK match is on the telly. The ref's just blown his whistle for half time - does that count?

Makinavaja said...

Thanks Lambre. No-one is going to get that Navajo reference unless I explain that Atletico fans are known as "indians" - something to do with camping by the river (our stadium is next to the Manzanares if that can be called a river), our striped kit is like war paint, we hate the white man (Real Madrid) and we're always chasing him (below him in the league!)

Nilpferd

I can't get on the Guardian site as it breaks my computer..

but reading between the lines you're doing clip joint on Bridges right?

(no I'm not going to post lots of clips of jeff- guess that joke is old hat)

I need an answer.. what I thought of is 'Bad Timing' the Nicolas Roeg film.. I watched it when I was really young.. so the disturbing Theresa Russell bits kind of stuck in my head.. and Art Garfunkles head - stuck in my head.. but is it a bridge or a stretch of road that keeps being referenced..

please help.
(a confused shane.. who probably doesn't want to re-watch the movie to find out... thanks)

CaroleBristol said...

Billie Holliday singing on an expensive Chanel No 5 advert featuring Audrey Tautou.

Abahachi said...

Edward Vesala, Ode to the Death of Jazz.

nilpferd said...

DEAD right, shane. I haven't seen Bad Timing but just doing a quick google there does seem to be a shot with Art Garfunkel standing in contemplation on a bridge, which then gets intercut with Theresa Russell's OP and SEX AND VIOLENCE scenes, etc.
(just doing my bit for blog hits here)
Couldn't find it in a clip on Youtube, though..

May1366 said...

Cat Stevens' Maybe You're Right but it's just given way to a spot of rare groove by Billy Davis, rejoicing in the title Stanky (Get Funky).

DarceysDad said...

Rickie Lee Jones singing Falling Up, courtesy of iTunes DJ. Graham Parker, Eluvium, The Vincent Black Shadow next three up, apparently ...

ShariVari said...

Cloetta Paris - Broken Heart Tango.

They're an Italo-disco-influenced duo from Stockholm, very much like Sally Shapiro. They're addictive. I got their album, Secret Eyes, around the same time as the Annie one and have barely listened to the latter.

bishbosh said...

I was just listening to some Kate Rusby (Who will sing me lullabies?) wot one of you good folk put in the Dropbox a week or two back. It was lovely. So thanks, whoever that was!

bishbosh said...

Ooh, last week's list is up. Think DsD is keeping up his winning ways - had a little heart lurch at the ref to World Party but his nom not mine. Curses!

saneshane said...

Thanks for trying nilpf..

it's a good film, very disturbing though if I remember correctly..
oh well.. but it would have been my suggestion.


back to songs...
'The disposition of the linen' Michael Nyman from The Draughtsman's Contract has just come on .. to connect with films.

iTunes in shuffle mode:
Dave Alvin & the Guilty Women - Potter's Field

TonNL said...

Primus - Jerry was a race car driver

sourpus said...

From the Wild Beasts album, Limbo, Panto - 'Brave Bulging Bouyant Clairvoyants'

Im not sure i'd go as far as the music press and compare them too readily with The Smiths. An original vocal sound, original sounding songs - not that hard you would think, in these times - and a sense of location, were only SOME of the constituent parts of The Smiths, but not all of them. The Smith's had more original music than this. But I do get where they are coming from and I like it.

Blimpy said...

@sourpus - a great song - but i wonder how we can get it in the canon?

DR said...

Led Zep - The Rover off Physical Graffiti , and very much looking forward to The Wanton Song. Inspired by an afternoon trip to a pub that used to be a shiny theme bar (a couple of short years ago)that has now mutated into a Rock pub, I like it when that happens.

CaroleBristol said...

Right this minute it is the track Gemini from the band Quatermass' eponymous only album.

gremlinfc said...

Been away - listening to "Double Barrel" -Dave & Ansel Collins - before going to YET ANOTHER infernal 18th birthday party...
