I like the original better. But this one’s still good.
I lost count of the remixes of this track a long time ago. Trill Bass “Swagger Like Us” is still pretty heavy though (first track in player)
Catching up quickly is "Day and Night" by Kid Cudi (original, but that Crookers rmx is the most popular version) which has seemingly been remixed every way but polka at this point. It’s a nice tune, if a bit done to death already. (here’s my favorite version, out of the dozen or so remixes just in dubstep alone)
The difficult I’ll do right now/the impossible will take a little while…
Unfortunately, Youtube copyright-blocks vids featuring that particular Billie Holiday gem from the game’s soundtrack, so we’ll go with Bob Crosby "Happy Times" here instead. More appropriate to the general mood today anyway, seems like.
(It’s hard for me to watch some of the scenes from today’s events without thinking stuff like “Oh yeah, that’s where I had to fight all those super mutants.”)
Back in his day, nobody could hit a higher note on the trumpet than Ferguson, and he retained those chops nearly throughout the rest of his life. Eli’s Coming is a great example of his screaming horn, and one of the grooviest jazz numbers I know.
I saw this guy live once and he was a badass. Hell of a player.
by saying “I have his autograph”, everytime Ricardo Montalban came on the TV. And back in the 70s? That was a LOT.
Ricardo Montalban is one of those rare awesome figures that did memorable roles across a long career. I think of him as Khan and Mr Rourke and Genuine Corinthian Leather, but my niece was like “Oh, the guy from Spy Kids!”
TMZ was on tv the other day before I could avert my eyes, and one of their droids had spoken with Bob Newhart, “the guy from Elf.” Really? Even the smarmy TMZ dude was taken aback…”Wait…The Bob Newhart Show? Or Newhart, where he ran that lodge?” (Not to mention that “Button Down Mind” album, which he didn’t. but anyway.) Nope, Papa Elf.
But yeah, Montalban was a classy guy by all accounts. RIP.
