Music...

...makes the people come together,
Music mix the bourgeoisie and the rebels
,
but most importantly...
makes the Kitty happy.

Honestly, I don't think the repeat option on my iTouch is good for my OCD. For just as I can watch most of my DVD collection again and again and again (records include watching Connie and Carla 5 tines in succession, and watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation from 8 am til 2 am the following morning on a none-stop loop) When I find just the right song, I can listen to it in an endless loop. Picture if you will "The song that never ends" by Lambchop and company...

What has been making Kitty infinitely happy on the inside and doing it's Calgon Duty on my commute to and from the office... MOST ESPECIALLY *FROM* the office are the following songs:


-FUCK YOU, Lily Allen
Great sound, fun, camp and to the point, no shit lyrics that inspire an almost zen-like state in me...



-MY SWEET LORD, Boy George
I do love me some George Harrison, but this version adds just a slight fabulous dimension that even one of the fab Four didn't give me...



-LET THE SUNSHINE IN, Army of Lovers
Ending the debate as to whether or not I am really and truly gay.



-VALERIE, Amy Winehouse
I can only pray the gurl gets her act together and puts out MORE music.



-RELAX (take it Easy), Mika
At one time I simply could not abide Mika.. but, then I grew...



-COMFORTABLY NUMB, the Scissor Sisters
This speaks to me in ways that Pink Floyd could never do.



And a couple Albums...

-FLASHBACK, Björn Again
OMG! OMG! OMG! I've seen Björn Again in person and they were indeed ABBAsolutely Fabuous, but then they take it a step further in their album where they do covers of other artists songs as if preformed by ABBA and they bloody well rock!...
...Woman in Love (Diana Ross)
...Stop (Erasure)
...Band of Gold (Freda Payne)
...When Will I See You Again (the Three Degrees)
...A Little Respect (Erasure)
...Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (the Shirelles)
THIS ALBUM is is musical GENIUS!... and I thank Scooter for bringing this to my attention.



-ABBA METAL (A tribute to ABBA),Various Artists.
OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! This is an album you have to hear to believe, and I can assure it it's phenomenally addictive... ABBA METAL is a tribute album of ABBA songs played by a variety of heavy metal and hard rock bands, released in 2001 by a German record label: Nuclear Blast. There is just something inexplicably enjoyable about mixing ABBA music with Heavy Metal drums, guitar and vocals... and it SO works.. THIS is was REALLY de-stresses me as I leave the office. Do yourselves the favour and search it out.. buy it, download it.. com eon over to our place if you must, but you MUST give it a chance.



-YES!, the Pet Shop Boys
I've previously commented on their first single "LOVE etc." and as much as I love the song, the album as a whole is exponentially more enjoyable as a whole.

Music.
...makes the Kitty happy.

This is the blog that never ends yes it goes on and on my friend.
Some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because, this is the song that never ends....

OMG, Connie and Carla is one of my favourites. I wish I could be a drag queen but I just don't have the moxie. Thanks for the music tips, I am going to see if I like them enough to download. Stay cool, Kitty.

... Also I am a woman so I don't know if I could technically be considered a drag queen.

Such brilliant choices.

I sooooooooooooo love Scissor Sisters' "Comfortably Numb". In fact, it's the #1 song on my iPod. As for Björn Again, soooooooooo love them, too. I saw them perform here in Seattle (yes, people do come to Seattle to perform). They were FANTASTIC. I loved their version of "A Little Respect"!!!

BTW, "Woman in Love" was Babs not Miss Ross.
