No wild stories today. Something a bit lighter — enjoy these excellent jams encountered over the past year or so surfing the internet. some skits some songs.
Jeff Bezos — Bo Burnam
I’m sure you all heard Bezos has a rocket company.
Bilal Göregen — Ievan Polka
This is a Finnish folk song, apparently. The drummer is a Turkish Street performer. The cat is a meme. Together, it’s a jam. There is a 1 hr version on YouTube. Highly recommended.
German marching band that covers techno songs. Great videos; amazing energy live.
Wellerman — Nathan Evans
TikTok thing, I think? Another traditional song… also a jam. Lots of remixes etc on youtube.
Bad Stuff Happens In The Bathroom — The National & Låpsey
I discovered this video at work… no shortage of gold to be found on Medium!! Thanks Esther Cooke for turning me on to this one. This is a spin-off video based off on Season 6 Episode 19 of the Bob’s Burgers TV show. This musical number appeared in the episode, but performed by show regulars instead of the professional arrangement seen here. I think this version is a real banger. Låpsey’s solo work is also very good.
Dope Lemon — Salt and Pepper
Fue Una Lagrima — Elia & Elizabeth
A Spanish folk duo from the 70s. I dig the influences. Sadly this duo did not produce much music before pursuing other life paths.
