Monday Morning Music

Well, it’s the last Monday of 2013. How the hell did that happen? I don’t even know.

I’ve made 47 posts tagged Monday Morning Music this year. It’s one of my favorite (and most consistent) things I do with this blog. I love to share music with all of you. For this last entry of 2013, I thought I’d revisit some of the videos I liked the best. Chronologically seems the best way to handle this, so here we go.

From back in February, here’s Richard Thompson with his version of “Oops, I Did It Again.” He actually succeeds in making me like the damn thing.

April brought us Lila Downs and her tribute to Emiliano Zapata, “Zapata Se Queda.” Like I said back then, I love the colors in this and the music’s great, too.

Here’s one that actually came out in 2013. Janelle Monáe (and Erykah Badu) with “Q.U.E.E.N.” So much fun and I love the message. I was torn between this one and “Dance Apocalyptic.”

This one’s from 2013, too. A great song about inclusion, diversity, and not being a dick in the geek world:
Nothing To Prove” by the Doubleclicks.

And finally, a video that just keeps me smiling, even thought my heart broke when I heard that Lou Reed was gone. Reed and Pavarotti dueting on “Perfect Day.” No, really.

So, what videos were your favorites this year?

Monday Morning Music (EST afternoon version)

Well, it’s still morning in several time zones, so I’m calling this a win. My continued slacktivist blogging needs to stop, though. My readers, what would you do without me?

Yeah, you’d be just fine. I know.

So, today’s video. Hm. I was recently reminded how fucking great Richard Thompson is, so why don’t we pick one of his? Here he is covering a “classic” tune. Love the percussionist, too. And the singalong reminds me of when I saw him open for Bonnie Raitt in Berkeley back in the ’80s. He had to change a guitar string at one point that night and led us in an a cappella version of “Twist and Shout.” One of my favorite concert memories.

Back later, hopefully, with links.
