Man, look at the calendar.  It's been weeks since I've made a New Music Friday post.  Miss me?

Netflix Seriously GIF by Stranger Things

No?  Hmmm.  Not nice.  NMF must happen.

OK, I'm starting off with Sparks:

That was a good warmup, right?  Sure, you hated that song, but I promise that you will be humming it for days.  That is your punishment.  Now, on with the show.

I don't get the name of this song, but it scores a solid 8.5 on the cool scale:

A nice something from Braids:

You guys know I'm a sucker for jazz flute, so:

Kabuki jazz flute is always cool, or so I've heard.  And if cool is going to be the theme this week, we can't leave out Laurent Garnier, especially when teamed with the Limiñanas.  Spoken word music, in French, how could that not be cool:

Nice, how about one more of the same, but different.  Very, very different:

Speaking of cool, Tricky is too cool to even be heard on his records these days.  But at least he shows up for live performances and makes noises that might be words?  Hard to say, really:

Thylacine, one of my current favorites, gets a smooth groove going in his latest, and smooth grooves?  Always cool:

This song is from last year, but it showed up on my music feed today again for some reason, and I see the video is just a few weeks old.  Maybe it's being relaunched by the record company?  It definitely deserves another listen.  Smooth Motown vibes.  Now that's cool:

And I'll finish with a different kind of cool - a dreamy guitar thing from Kele Okereke:

 

 

"But wait", you say, "No techno this week?  How can that be?"

Be, it can.  I do have some techno, but I also have this - hip hop techno.  Oh, yeah, with a little old school dub reverb thrown in for flavor.  Cool:

 

That is all.

Who needs a house up on a hill
When you can have one on four wheels
And take it anywhere the wind might blow
You don't ever have to mow the yard
Just hang a map and throw a dart
And pray to God the engine starts and go

Water and electric and a place to drain the septic
Any KOA is A-OK as long as I'm with you
So come on hitch your wagon
To the living room I'm draggin'
If I can't bring you to my house
I'll bring my house to you

Parking lots and county lines
Coutin' mile marker signs
Where the buffalo and antelope
Greetings from Niagara Falls
One more postcard for the wall
Off in our home sweet home away from home

Water and electric and a place to drain the septic
Any KOA is A-OK as long as I'm with you
So come on hitch your wagon
To the living room I'm draggin'
If I can't bring you to my house
I'll bring my house to you

In Washington, in Idaho
In Oregon and away we go
To Tennessee and Arkansas
No we won't stop 'til we've seen 'em all
'Til we've seen 'em all
So what else could you ask for?
You don't even need a passport
To see the whole world from our living room

So come on hitch your wagon
To the happiness I'm draggin'
If I can't bring you to my house
I'll bring my house to you
If I can't bring you to my house
I'll bring my house to you

It don't matter where we go
We'll never be alone
Anywhere besides you, is a place that I'll call home
It don't matter where we go
We'll never be alone
Anywhere besides you is a place that I'll call home

More often than not I find myself coming back to the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.  Just brings back good vibes and feelings while "takin it easy".

Few know that Snowball is known as the Lonely Disco in the right circles (that circle consisting of my wife and me, but we're accepting membership applications).  And I know that there's not a single Grace Jones fan on the forum apart from me, but I've posted before about how much I like Sonos gear as a replacement for Oliver's speakers, and thought some of you might like to hear what they sound like.  Or it, this is actually just the Sonos Move playing, which you can see on the ground at the first of the video.  Helps that the playa is basically a 10 mile wide soundboard, but that sort of makes up for this being recorded through an iPhone microphone.

I'd apply for membership but you simply have got to get the lights on the Snowball and the light over those mountains to be changing color and intensity with the back beat of the music! 🤣

Working on it.  Getting the fire to flicker with the music is the really hard part.

Just so you know, I thought Grace was spectacular in Conan The Destroyer!

Grace Jones has an amazing voice (and range), an amazing look, and she should be featured in the aarp mag. At 73, she shames people half her age. 

Disco queen, sure. But so much more. Who else got Andy Warhol as a host for her baby shower?

Really like this video/music, nice work!

This is a pretty special song for us.

It was on our tree decorating cd for years. This was the "dance break" song for me, my mother in law, and my daughter.

Every year, the tree had a heavy amount of  ornaments at my mil's height/ reach. A few got dropped. No big deal.

We had so much fun, and I  really miss those days. And I miss my tiny,  sweet mother in law, with her big spirit, and beautiful smile.

Merry Christmas.

Me too!

I was about 13 and my sister was 15 when one Christmas Eve she convinced me to learn how to dance.  Let the lessons begin!  In the living room, next to the aluminum Christmas tree that had a color wheel lighting it, she played that song over and over and ....... until I learned.  Same thing the next day too.  For a long time I really didn't like White Christmas and/or the Drifters.  I'd had enough!

But, then I found out that girls liked boys who could dance!😇

Thanks for reminding me - it really brought a smile to my face with a great memory.

So, a bit late for throwback Thursday.

But, this is still a favorite. 

My husband and I  have traveled so many places. I  had tears in my eyes when our plane circled Norway for the first time, decades ago. We've camped on so many fun and exotic places, with, and without our Oliver. 

We've enjoyed camping in so many places, here, and abroad.  And, sailing expeditions, as well.

It's all about trust in each other, your vehicle, and what you are willing to risk,  and, enjoy, together.

Our life has always been about "will you go with me.," And, it's been a great travel.

I  only hope all of you can or have enjoyed the journeys, too.
