That Adam’s Apple Will Kill You

Christmas is coming up, in case anyone is wondering what to get me, cash, vinyl and sexual favors are almost always good.

This post is heavy on the gay techno, which is weird considering I’ve spent all of today listening to Fucked Up. My shit is diverse.

Chorus (Pure Trance Mix)
Chorus (Transdental Trance Mix)
Chorus (Agressive Trance Mix)
I can’t believe I never put up any remixes of Chorus before. I was going to put these up a while ago, but the song’s lyrics are so sad and I was really riding a post Obama high for a few weeks. Anyways, that didn’t last. I think that if “the gays” ever actually did start converting kids like the conservative nutbags out there think they do then this song would be part of phase one in their “homofication” plan.

Discotheque (DM Deep Club Mix)
Discotheque (Hexidecimal Mix)
Discotheque (DM Deep Instrumental)
Why do I put up songs on my blog that I myself don’t like? Related question: Why do I buy 12” singles to songs that I don’t like? I think I bought this one as a gift a few months ago but forgot about it. Then I found it buried in my “to record” pile and thought “fuck, how did this happen?” Anyways, I’m sure someone out there likes this song, and these remixes are for that person, whoever that stupid sick fucker is.

Ric Ocasek
Jimmy Jimmy (A New Extended Version)
Connect Up To Me (Extended Version)
And coming out of nowhere it’s a freakishly thin man with a giant adam’s apple! Ric Ocasek’s voice is one of those love it or hate things, kind of like a new wave Neil Young. I’ve personally always loved it but other people I know (hi mom!) want to jam icepicks in their ears whenever a song by The Cars (that isn’t “Drive”) comes on the radio. If you didn’t like The Cars you probably aren’t going to like these two solo tracks, but if you don’t like The Cars then you suck (unless you’re my mom, in that case I’ll let it slide). Both of these tracks are extended versions of songs that originally appeared on Ocasek’s 1983 debut Beatitude, which I just found out is out of print. I’ll try to remember to record my vinyl copy and put it up here soon.

    “whoever that stupid sick fucker is”

    LOL – The remixes killed this song in my opinion, the original was kinda cool.

    Love the Blog – keep it up man!
