Mirrored Glass/ Geometric Moustache
Ask Me Anything on Formspring  

Part 1 of a 2 hour+ conversation with Trevor Horn. I’ve been listening to it on and off for a couple days. I can’t reccomend it enough - Perhaps the greatest behind-the-scenes talk on music production and 80s music history I’ve ever heard.

So much to take for granted as a music listener - so many complicated stories behind tracks like “Owner of a Lonely Heart”, “Relax”, “The Look of Love”, Video Killed the Radio Star”, “Slave to the Rhythm” and many more.  Seriously, this is a must-listen.

A brilliant piece of super-specific music humor. That I’ve re-watched a great many times.

Thrill at the quirky humor of Bowie, Eno, and Visconti recording “Warszawa” from Low!

Seriously though, we’d better get some steamy questions for Jamela.

Check out this strange as the dickens dream narrative video for James Ingram & Michael McDonald’s “Yah Mo B There”.

smoothjesus:

Check out this letter by Kenny Loggins about songwriting with Michael McDonald (in response to this analysis). I was especially charmed at the fact that Kenny at one point refers to Michael as “McD”.

I didn’t think it was possible. But Kenny Loggins just got even cooler.

subliculous:

let us not forget that peter gabriel was once one cool, weird sonofabitch back in the 70’s.

R.I.P. Ride the Comix - You were the ultimate VR abortion. Too X-Treme for the 2000s, too X-Treme for our hearts.

Geike, formerly of Hooverphonic - amazing video for her solo track “Rope Dancer”.

'A man with no trace of the feminine in him, with no duality at all, is a man without tenderness, sympathy, gentleness, kindness, responsiveness. He is brute-mean, a hammer, a fist. McGee, what is a woman with no trace of the masculine in her makeup?'

'Mmm. Merciless in a different way?'

'You show promise McGee. The empathy of kindness is a result of the duality, not of the feminine trace.'
