The Supermen Lovers - Starlight

Time has come for me to be someone
A rich man, a superstar
And faith is all you need to be the one
Far from my own ground

M.I.A. by mckelvie

One of the very first things I drew digitally.

A couple of weeks ago on Twitter I mentioned to Khouri & Kate Leth that if McKelvie draws something music-related, it’s immediately cool (cf. Ladytron, La Roux, CHVRCHES).

the mother we share - CHVRCHES

One of my favourite songs of 2013 (if not my outright fave).

Give me your hungry, your tired, your poor I’ll piss on ‘em
That’s what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, let’s club ‘em to death
Get it over with and just put ‘em on the boulevard

I’m pretty sure that ‘Walk On The Wild Side ’ is the first song of Lou Reed’s I can recall hearing, but ‘Dirty Blvd.’ will always be my favourite. Thanks, for the music, Lou.

1) ‘Immigrant Song’ is the only Led Zeppelin song I honestly like (sorry, I can go my whole life without having to hear bloody ‘Stairway to Heaven’ ever again);

2) Richard Linklater had to work hard to get ‘Immigrant Song’ onto School of Rock's soundtrack, a feat he attempted a decade previously when he made Dazed & Confused:

The title of the film is derived from the Led Zeppelin version of the song of the same name. Linklater approached the surviving members of Led Zeppelin for permission to use their song “Rock and Roll" in the film, but, while Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones agreed, Robert Plant refused.

Come 2003:

[Led Zeppelin] historically has not allowed their songs to be used for commercial purposes, and rarely give permission for anyone to use their songs, one noted exception being filmmaker Cameron Crowe

To get permission, Richard Linklater came up with the idea to shoot a video on the stage used at the end of the film, with Jack Black begging the band for permission and the crowd cheering and chanting behind him. The video was sent directly to Led Zeppelin, and permission was granted for the song.

Us3 - Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)

One of my favourite movie-going memories involves seeing Get Shorty at the old Greater Union cinema in Melbourne with an old school friend. Hearing this always reminds me of that film, and that day.

Respect due, Elmore Leonard.

Alison Crowe - A Murder of One

There’s a bird that nests inside you
Sleeping underneath your skin
When you open up your wings to speak
I wish you’d let me in

Gorgeous reading of the Counting Crows tune.

Blondie - Atomic

Duran Duran - White Lines

I was reminded that this exists, and between the vintage MTV bumper and the painfully 90’s production values, it hasn’t aged well, has it? (Sidenote: the album this originates from is considered one of the worst of all time.)

Bob Geldof - The Great Song of Indifference (1990)

I don’t mind if the government falls
Implements more futile laws
I don’t care if the nation stalls
And I don’t care at all
