This post is Yellow. And not in a Racist Way.

It’s funny, now that I got a good turntable, I can finally go through the 8 billion records I’ve been wanting to record for the past six months. Good news for all you guys. That means a lot more posts. I guess it’s good news for me too, but it’s also more work, so I think it kind of evens out.

Yellow Magic Orchestra
Tighten Up (Long Version)
I love me some YMO, but this track is pretty annoying. The exaggerated fake Japanese voice is what really gets me. Although “Everybody’s doing it! Even David Bowie’s doing it!” always makes me laugh. This is from a 12” single.

Hardfloor vs. Yello
Vicious Games (Hardfloor Remix)
Vicious Games (Remixed by Boris Blank & Olaf Wollschlager)
Vicious Games (Vorsprung Durch Technik Remix)

This is a remix of a Belgium Swiss dance track by a German acid house duo, making it the most European shit ever. I have a problem with Yello. The problem is that whenever I buy any of their singles I listen to them once and then listen to my remixes of “Oh Yeah” ad nasuem until I have dreams that Ferris Bueller is going to take me on a magical Chicagoland adventure where one of my best friends eventually tries to kill himself but it all somehow works out in the end. Oh, and Jennifer Grey shows up, but she has her old nose still so I know who the hell she is. Yeah, anyways, this is NOT that song, it’s a different song that was also on Stella. Good track, good remixes, especially the first one. These have a few scratches on them, but nothing severe.

    I spotted the deliberate mistake! Do I get a prize? Yello are Swiss. Maybe you were thinking of Front 242 who are/were Belgian.

    Not deliberate, just good ol’ fashion stupidity. Thanks for the heads up.
