Music for Monday, Funky Tonight by the John Butler Trio.

They call him “The Million Dollar Hippie.John Butler is a great man with a message.

He was discovered while busking in Fremantle, Western Australia, and is well known for his political beliefs and environmental convictions. The John Butler Trio are the only band I have ever seen in both Australia and the US, three times total. They are phenomenal live; it’s hard to believe such sound can be created by three men with such velocity. They are completely in sync, yet each one manages to shine separately. A true pleasure to watch and experience.

The JBT’s unique style ranges from alternative to blue grass, reggae to jam band. I chose this song because I love how rich and varied it is. The video is a cute concept.

Enjoy.

Music for Monday, Downtown by Peaches.

“Why do we call our mothers motherfuckers? Why do we stub our toe and say, “Aww motherfucker!”? What is a motherfucker? … We use it in our everyday language, and it’s such an insanely intense word. I’m not one to shy away from these obscene terms that we actually have in our mainstream. Motherfucker is a very mainstream word. But if we’re going to use motherfucker, why don’t we use fatherfucker? I’m just trying to be even.”
~ Peaches

With a statement like that, how could you not love Peaches? She started her career as a music teacher who then decided to follow her own musical path, writing her own lyrics, playing her own instruments, and producing albums herself. She is a kick-ass woman who has proven herself a force to be reckoned with in the music community.

Downtown is a favorite of mine because of the cheeky lyrics and electronic beat. It’s much softer than the other tunes on Impeach My Bush. Yes, that’s what the album is called, and it is most certainly a political statement. “I’d rather fuck who I want than kill who I am told to!” I love her balls-to-the-wall approach to her music, and I love that she explores transgender issues and her sexuality with force and without apology.

Enjoy!

Music for Monday, Stroker Ace by Lovage.

Posted in Music for Monday with tags on March 17, 2008 by naughtysecretary

Music follows me wherever I go. In the car, while cooking, in my head, while I am trying to sleep; I’m always listening to the stuff. It’s a passion of mine, and it slips me to another place quite easily. I would also consider my musical taste fairly broad; from soft and sensual to hard and abrasive. (Kind of like my personality, if I’m tweaked the wrong way.)

That being said, I plan to add a new song/video every Monday.

Are you excited? You should be.

So, the choice today rests on the sensual side. Let me introduce Lovage.

You can also read up on Miss Jennifer Charles here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jennifer_Charles

She’s quite the minx. I’ve had many a naughty thought watching her serenade and slink about. I think it’s pretty obvious why Lovage make my pick this week.

Enjoy!
