Song of the day: Thomas Dolby – Hyperactive!

Another one from the decade of my musical awakening – I was 18 at the time this was released. In the 1980s Thomas Dolby was one of my personal favorites, and even today some of his songs are still just that. One of them is definitely Hyperactive!, not in the least because it contains a hilarious line that I am still able to use in various circumstances every now and then: “You’ll be safer at the back, when I’m having an attack.”

Song of the day: Rob Dougan – Clubbed to Death

Another bold statement underlining the fact that music does not need lyrics to impress. A song almost everyone has already heard at some point (largely due to the fact that it was used in The Matrix trilogy), but hardly anyone knows what the title is or who the performer is. And more importantly: a song that makes almost evreryone take notice when it starts to play: Clubbed to Death by the Australian musician Rob Dougan.

Song of the day: The Shirts – Laugh and Walk Away

Challenge of the day: click the play button of the video below and in the 3 minutes afterwards do not move your fingers, especially not to the rhythm of the piano sound. The song is über-catchy, although that might not have been intentional, as The Shirts actually began their career as a punk band in the late 70’s.

Song of the day: Amatorski – The King

These Song of the day posts are somehow meant as digging up hidden treasures, exactly like the kid is doing in the video accompanying today’s discovery: The King by the Belgian band Amatorski.

The song was released in 2010, and despite being only 2 minutes long it can serve as an excellent way to quickly go into a relaxing mood. Make sure to select a comfortable chair before clicking the Play-button!

Song of the day: Markus Nikolai – Bushes

If you happen to live near the German city Frankfurt and need a pair of glasses, it might be a good idea to drop by at Markus Nikolai’s (http://www.markusnikolai.com/) – apparently the man who made the song I want to draw your attention to today is selling fancy glasses these days.

Should you decide to do so, give him my regards and tell him that he has made an absolutely gorgeous and enchanting song in the early 2000s: Bushes. As you will notice, the video is more about how to get rid of them.
