It’s just 11 am of a tuesday morning and coffee is already composing 99% of your body fluids. Take a break and shake it off: here’s Missy Elliott with her hit “Get Ur Freak On”. It’s gonna help you get get get […]

Monday Morning Kick Off: The Clash / Rock The Casbah

There’s no better way to start the week than with a kick ass track: directly from 1982 The Clash with “Rock The Casbah”. I dare you not to dance on your desk! So don’t be a wuss, drink your coffee and rock the office! Non c’e’ modo migliore di iniziare la settimana che ascoltare una […]

Sugar Ray / When It’s Over

Once upon a time in far 1995 four american boys joined together and formed a band called Shrinky Dinks (name taken from a popular toy). Only after being threatened of lawsuit by the toy producer they finally became Sugar Ray. I always appreciated their pop rock quite a lot and their biggest singles have gone […]

New Radicals / You Get What You Give

Here’s a good trip down memory lane, straight back to one of the hymns of what once was ’90s pop rock. Iconic signs: fisherman style hat, baggy jeans and a skateboard. The song is “You Get What You Give” by New Radicals, major hit both in the US and in Europe taken from their only […]

Ultra

Ultra / Say It Once

SPOILER ALLERT: ’90s Pop Boyband. Basically my field of expertise. It was 1998 and I was it the middle of my teenage dream. Boybands popped out like mushrooms, Take That had already ended their (first) phase and Spice Girls were half way through. And in that perfect pure pop era, another mix of nice looking, […]

Violent Femmes

Violent Femmes / Blister In The Sun

This is a full ’80s pearl! A while ago I stumbled upon a funny movie from the late ’90s called “Grosse Pointe Blank”, with John Cusack. The soundtrack was great and basically only composed of famous songs from the eighties, so I googled it. Turns out the guy who built the soundtrack was nothing but […]

Artful Dodger / It’s All About The Stragglers

Nineties dance hits moment! T´was winter of 2000 and Artful Dodger, the brit dj duo, came out with their big track “Re-rewind” alongside with brit r’n’b singer Craig David. The mix was a massive hit and they basically got it all right. The base was funky and modern, Craig David’s live voice worked well on […]
