I’ve been hesitant to actually make this move as I’m so used to how things work at my former residence. However, Half Hearted Dude touted the ease of WordPress and, knock on silicon, so far, so good.
A quartet of tracks in motion…
The Cars – Moving In Stereo
from The Cars
Paloma mentioned her affection for The Cars the other day. She also declared her feelings that they haven’t gotten as much due as they should.
I think I’d agree that maybe they haven’t gotten as much hoopla as some bands of their era. If you were listening to radio in the late ’70s/early ’80s – especially during the summer of ’84 – you certainly knew their songs.
Primal Scream – Movin’ On Up
There are a handful of songs that never fail to make me smile. Movin’ On Up is one of them.
k.d. lang – Just Keep Me Moving
from Even Cowgirls Get The Blues soundtrack
Even Cowgirls Get The Blues always seemed to get the most attention, but, when it comes to the works of Tom Robbins – from whose Half Asleep In Frog Pajamas we adopted our name – I much prefer Skinny Legs And All and Jitterbug Perfume.
Anyhow, Just Keep Me Moving was a nice contribution by k.d. lang to the soundtrack.
Neneh Cherry – Move With Me (Dub)
from Until The End Of The World soundtrack
One of the best assembled movie soundtracks of the ’90s was the one for Wim Wenders’ Until The End Of The World. In fact, it was the lure of a new Peter Gabriel song that prompted a roommate and I to catch the movie in the theater (putting us in the company of a select few).
The hypnotic simmer of Move With Me is likely to surprise folks who only know Ms. Cherry from her 1989 hit Buffalo Stance.
