Ca Plane Pour Moi - Plastic Bertrand

2017-04-24: Don't it feel good


This week is songs that always cheer me up. They might not all be super chipper songs (most them are), but for one reason or other they brighten my mood when I hear them.

Walking On Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves

2017-04-09: Велик - Грибы

Ukranian band. Kinda like 90s style club music with rapping about chicks and psychedelics.


Thanks to the Gatest Gamer, we all know how to party like a Russian now. (The Party is never really over.)

2017-04-04: Якутяночка - L'ONE

Pop music as it comes, but with one huge but. The song is about Yakut people, who are kinda like Inuit people of Russia. When was the last time Americans celebrated some of the natives of their land in pop music?


Party like a Russian/Ukrainian Week

2017-04-03: Город под подошвой - Oxxxymiron

It's Party Like a Russian Week -- Russian/Ukrainian pop from Gatest Gamer!

2017-04-02: Give me your money - Little Big

Basically Russian Die Antwoord. Pretty crappy music, but fun video. Don't watch it around your boss or your kids. Or don't watch it at all, you won't miss much.

2017-04-01: Кольщик - Ленинград

Probably among the most popular Russian bands of the last 20 years. Leningrad started off as a ska-ish band with a shocking (for Russia at at that time) amount of profanity in lyrics, while singing about lower class Joe Shmoe problems (Yes I'm an alcoholic; I thought you were an angel, but you're just a bitch etc). Eventually that got old and the singer started hiring different women to take over and drive the music style. This is its current iteration with their latest video, which is hell of a masterpiece. The name of the band is Leningrad, I expect all of you know what it means. If you don't, just google it.
