I ♥ Agnetha

Earlier this month Discodust posted three "diva" edits from Mindless Boogie up and coming edit-ors Villa. A great trio of edits of Tina Turner, Anita Meyer and my favorite of the three of course, a nearly nine minute filtered out rework of the ultimate gap toothed superstar, Agnetha Fältskog of ABBA. Umm... love her. Since then I've been heavily revisiting that edit, the original track and the album it all came from, also entitled Wrap Your Arms Around Me. That record being Agnetha's her first solo outing after ABBA's unfortunate demise. Wah.

Enjoy the super-schmaltz. Cuz no one can do it like a Swede.

Agnetha Fältskog- Wrap Your Arms Around Me
Villa- Agnetha (via Discodust)

and since I like you guys so much, another cut from that album, an AM gold, super hazy disco ballad that I just adore. That bassline equals heaven for me.

Agnetha Fältskog- Stay

In Your Eyes

No not that one. Just a little Rational Youth to start off your week right and a tiny reminder of all the escapism and adventure that lies just behind the eyes of another.

This goes out to all the lovers out there. This also goes out to all the talkbox lovers out there.

Still miss you Roger.

Roger- Emotions

As a supercool bonus I scanned an AMAZING article on the the man himself, Mr. Roger Troutman from Waxpoetics magazine for you.


Sun Songs Pt. 2

Where have I been? Elsewhere. My apologies.

I started a series on my last pass through, giving a bit of promise for more summer love to come, then life happened again and I disappeared. I think of ARAWA almost daily, thinking of returning to find it overgrown with moss and ivy, in a hidden corner of some secret garden. Waiting in silence for Tommy and I to return and turn these lights back on.

Well hi. Missed you guys.

This song has been bouncing around my head and heart all season, pianos sustaining toward the horizon, riding atop a glorious boogie funk bassline, bits of synth sprinkled behind, falling and skipping the surface like stones... ahhh. Summer.
