Rejoice

Lia reaching her sweet thirteen !
listen and Rejoice

It’s tight
The more convict
The crime
Tears are not needed
Did you have your lot today?
Of guilt and sorrow
Secrets have taught you
Live life with joy
Go on and just do it
Why won’t you come and take it?
Go on and just do it
Why won’t you come and take it?
Slave to the darkest hour
We’re longing for the light
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice every situation
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice, don’t let life pass you by
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice every situation
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice, don’t let life pass you by
You crave focus with no meaning
You pray again to the heroine
You keep on looking for
Something to get on over
But the journey meaning and rule your life
Go on and just do it
Why won’t you come and take it?
Go on and just do it
Why won’t you come and take it?
Slave to the darkest hour
We’re longing for the light
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice every situation
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice, don’t let life pass you by
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice every situation
Rejoice from this very day
Rejoice, don’t let life pass you by
Go on and just do it
Ooooh go on
Go on and just do it
Come and take it
Take it
Take it
Take it
Take it
Take it
Take it
Take it
Come and take it

Stand tall

listen to reason from the old Neil Young with Stand Tall

Stand tall for earth
Long may our planet live
Together we can win
As long as you and I
Stand tall
Stand tall

Some say it’s the era of sedition
Our way of life turning upside down
Old ideas put out on exhibition
Like criminals paraded through the town
You can turn with me
We can face this foe
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
We win when you and I
Stand tall
Stand tall

Stand tall for earth
Long may our planet live
Together we can win
As long as you and I
Stand tall
Stand tall
For a woman’s right to be equal
Doing all that she was born to do
Let earth become a rainbow of people
Blending all the colors as they choose
It’s the dawn of our day
The light of our way
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
We win when you and I
Stand tall
Stand tall
Stand tall
Stand tall

The boy king don’t believe in science
It goes against the big money truth
His playpen is full of deniers
They’ll flush our future down the tubes
Don’t you get me wrong
‘Cause we got to be strong
Wherever we go
Whatever we do
We win when you and I
Stand tall
Stand tall
Stand tall
Stand tall

boozoo bajou revival

Satta, Dust My Broom… great names to special and delightful albums

Featuring producers Florian Seyberth and Peter Heider, Boozoo Bajou are a downbeat duo from Nuremberg, Germany known for blending inspirations like reggae, dub, Cajun music, folk, jazz, and pop.

They first appeared in 1998 via the Stereo Deluxe label and the single “Night Over Manaus.” The exotic lounge number drew the attention of Richard Dorfmeister, who hired the duo to remix “Chocolate Elvis,” a 1999 single from Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber’s project, Tosca.

That same year, Bajou’s jazzy single “Under My Sensi” became the chill-out tune of choice. It landed on their 2001 debut Satta! a dub-meets-electronica effort suitably named after the Jamaican Patois term for “relax.”

No surprise, then, that their 2003 mix CD Juke Joint skillfully blended Groove ArmadaBurnt FriedmanGregory IsaacsPaul Weller, and John Lee Hooker, or that the same year’s Remixes collection found them working with names like CommonMousse T., and Thievery Corporation.

Their sophomore release, Dust My Broom, landed in 2005 with country-rock hero Tony Joe White appearing on the single “Keep Going,” while Jamaican deejay U-Brown traded lines with Fat Freddy’s Drop singer Joe Dukie on the track “Take It Slow.”

Actually… Take it Slow is one of the great songs of Dust My Broom!

Night from Manaus from Satta takes back to great memories of Lisbon and my first days and nights spent with Ana!

dj still kicks

Fed the cat and hit the park
Chicest, cutest chocolate queen
Looked and smiled right at me

Keep on believing
Keep on believing
Keep on believing
Keep on believing

She said, “Hi” without no sound
Made my head go light and ’round
She was dressed to kill the Pope
And what she did she gave me hope
I smiled back without no sound
I said, “Hi” and left the ground

Keep on believing
Keep on believing – one of my favourite songs of…

one of Kruder & Dorfmeister’s masterpieces!

DJ Kicks are great albums done by several artists… and this one is one of the best!

DJ-Kicks started out in 1993 as a compilation of electronic DJ -style mixes in the techno or house genres, with the then-novel twist of being targeted to a home listening audience.[2] Soon afterwards, both the choice of compilers and the genres included were expanded: In addition to DJs, more and more producers (like Terranova), remixers (like Kruder & Dorfmeister), bands (like the Stereo MCs) and musicians (like Nicolette) compiled DJ-Kicks albums. The actual music began to vary wildly as well, ranging from Trüby Trio‘s downbeat jazz sound to Kemistry & Storm‘s aggressive drum and bass. Still, all contributions remain broadly within the electronic music genre.
