Cartridge 1987/Adrien Rich – Chase
I heard this piece in the cool short film Smoke by Paris-based filmmaker Kendy Ty which you can check out in this edition of Weekend Watching. The music is minimalist and hypnotic with just a few deft changes in movement. Good stuff!
Prince – Gold
I guess I thought of this song and video because glitter is the flavour of the season.
The Dust Brothers feat. Tyler Durden – This Is Your Life
This is still the gold standard for re-purposing movie dialogue as lyrics.
Guns N’ Roses – Patience
A strong whistling section in a song is always fun!
Bing Crosby – White Christmas
There’s a pop version of this floating around that goes “I’m dreaming of a Whi-ai-ai-ite Christmas.” I’ll take the classic, thank you very much.
