When I'm Dead

I just want this song played at my funeral.


So, I've desperately been trying to not talk about my disgust in general with today's music, in particular the genre formally known as Hip Hop. If you were born before 1982, then you probably know that it sucks and sucks greatly, so greatly in fact that if you hated Hip Hop in the 90's and heard the same Hip Hop you once hated back then and compared for what passes today you would fucking love the shit now. At first I thought maybe I'm just getting old (and I am), but goddamn it can we came make some music of fucking quality and I'm not just referring to Hip Hop, I'm talking ALL GENRES!!!
Here's a little FYI, if you build it they will come. You don't have to keep making shit music to get a record deal, and the record companies don't necessarily have to sign shitty bands, but it's there fault for doing so all for the sake of being "competitive"...I'm done ranting, here's A Tribe Called Quest, Oh My God, from Midnight Marauders (it's the remix, when remixes actually meant something)

Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra/Kiss The Sky

A lot of times I watch TV especially HBO series and every so often they might play an awesome song during the end credits and leave no indication of who it is. These musical selections are often obscure, but still awesome none the less, and unless you're some sort of super music person, you're not going to know what song it is. This song was played during the ending scene and into the credits of HBO's East Down and Bound.

Night Light

I like Miho Hatori a lot. I mean A LOT. She's was the main vocalist from Cibo Matto who unfortunately don't make music together anymore. Anyway, while I was bastardizing the economic value of the recording industry (downloading)a few years ago, I ran across this little solo gem of hers which is from the Urban Renewal Program from Ninjatune, I haven't heard the entire the album which is a compilation of artist, but I think you can buy it from Amazon...I haven't though because I'm a cheap bastard.
