Patterico's Pontifications


Friday Night Music

Filed under: General,Music,Music by Patterico — Patterico @ 9:41 pm

For no particular reason (which is a lie, as you’ll soon see), here are the Tories with Gladys Kravitz:

Yes, I am aware that I have posted it before. What of it?

And, because I let YouTube run and do its thing, and it started playing other things, here’s another thing it played:

Gotta love YouTube.

P.S. What a weird choice of categories for this post.

  1. That was a hint.

  2. I don’t have a clue what you’re hinting at, but thanks for both videos and another reason to listen to Jellyfish, perhaps the best San Francisco band San Franciscans have never heard of.

  3. Not sure what inspired #3, but strangely enough, Jellyfish’s Andy Sturmer is the co-designer of the sound of popular J-pop/rock/punk band Puffy (known stateside as Puffy AmiYumi), whom I fell in love with when their CD was played in a record store. I was able to catch them in concert at SF’s Fillmore as they were promoting their short-lived Cartoon Network show. This song kicked off a wonderful concert (English lyrics after the jump).

  4. ….here are the Tories with Gladys Kravitz:

    I had to smile about that. I first read your post and I’m thinking “naw- he has to mean Lenny Kravitz. Gladys was the neighbor on “Bewitched” “. Then I look at the video. That definitely ain’t no fussy old busybody!

    Actually, “Crayon Pop” is a South Korean “K-Pop” group. After the analog to digital TV signal conversion, I started to pick up a Korean Broadcasting System channel when channel-surfing and that led to what’s now a separate K-Pop channel. There’s just something about the K-Pop groups that finds my happy button even though I don’t speak a word of their language. And these benighted days, my happy button needs to be found at least once a day.

  6. Today’s Passion Hymn (no, not the movie) with Vangelis and Irene Pappas, the Burial:

    All generations offer a hymn to your burial my Christ.
    The Arimathean took you down from the cross and buried you in a tomb.
    Women came with spices to give thee perfume and prepare your burial.
    Hither creation was made, let us sing hymns to praise our Creator.
    Nourished from above with manna, lifted heels of contempt against their benefactor.
    Joesph is buried by Nikodemos, body of the Creator.

    Oh my sweet spring, my sweetest child, where does your beauty fade?
    Son of God, Almighty, my God and Creator, How can I receive your passion?
    Women with spices, came very early in the morning to sprinkle the grave with perfume.
    O my Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit, have mercy on the world.
    Allow us to serve you Virgin, to see you son’s resurrection.

  7. Nice stuff.

    After the song and the sock hop dancin’ starts and they cut back to the 17year old on the phone, ya gotta think the Captain was tellin’ her about what he’d like to be doin’ if she’d just hitchhike out to his trailer in Topanga Canyon…

  8. re: the Jellyfish song… it’s not bad, but it’s far too mellow.

    It doesn’t hold even a candle to the Badfinger original…. it’s almost whiny by comparison.

    And yes, the song is, on some levels, whiny, in that it promises love without restraint…

    But in Badfinger’s hands, it was a lot more Badass.

  9. LOL, I was expecting the Girl Scout to go back inside and take over, when she waited until the end to come out.

  10. Easter Hymn with (who else) Vangelis and Irene Pappas:

    Christ has Risen from among the Dead,
    Trampling Death with Death,
    And to those Entombed,
    He has Granted Life.
