You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

See one of my problems with the rap genre is that it is too quickly summarized and taken to it's very limits. I immediately think lil dicky when I listen to that, and I start hearing banal formulas that, while being amusing once in a while, very quickly lose my interest. When you start hearing the general in the particular more often than not, the particular loses its ontological independence and becomes profane representation only. I have no idea what that means. I just said it. It did kinda sound good though.

What I was listening to in the 80s.. fuck Disco, Disco my ass, Disco what.

My bastard of a brother stole this (original) album from me, which was given to me by my ex-brother-in-law, and is probably now worth bear £££s.. what a wanker, but karma’s a bitch, and he’s now seeing. My payback price is very high.

Pfft... ya'll don't know nothing about the Wonder. Y'all think very superstitious and I just called to say I love you is the gold. Nah fuck that. One is not qualified to pass judgement on the Wonder until inner visions and songs in the key of life have been thoroughly reviewed.

I saw James Brown in the summer of 2000 on about a half a vial of acid at this festival that used to happen every year in Bham called City Stages.

I don’t like the latter.. something about the rhythm / the beat, that I don’t like.. it almost sounds like it’s off key, but maybe that was his intention.

I’ll check out that album, and get back to you.. can’t guarantee I’ll like it though.

Having just listened to Master Blaster again, I noticed, that it would be perfect to dance Rave to.. cutting shapes on the (dusty warehouse) dance floo - while my peers were listening to Michael Jackson and the whole Disco era movement, I was chilling to Stevie W playing on an old Grundig stereogram.

Talking of raves:

Having been to a few.. mainly when at Uni up-North and a few back in London, I reckon the new wave of illegal ravers are having a blast.

Never thought I’d witness the need for the return of them though.

Lol

Ok, so I’ll answer that question if you answer one for me.. why would Stevie Wonder, when he made ‘I Just Called To Say I Love You’, make it sound out of key? That song sets me on edge because of that, and it definitely ain’t because of the lyrics. That track being off key is off key, by its very own definition.

World-famous Superstar-DJ Carl Cox, a British house and techno record producer and DJ, with a net worth of $16 million dollars.. well, with that amount of cash you’d think he’d get some veneers done, wouldn’t ya. So.. to me, he’s not about da looks, though, he’s probably always surrounded by the good-looking jet-set crowd.

Still, not the richest DJ in the world. That would be Calvin Harris. The second richest would be this Dutch guy: This one is for Fixed Cross. The self-valuing anthem.

The self-valuing anthem. Haha! What’s wrong with self-valuing though? it is a thing, you know. Never said CC was the highest earning DJ in the world.. just disclosed his net worth, is all. “Calvin Harris net worth: Calvin Harris, is a Scottish singer-songwriter, record producer and DJ who has a net worth of$240 million. As of this writing, Calvin is the richest DJ in the world. In a typical year he earns $30-$40 million.“

Never heard of Tiesto, and his music is not to my taste, but good for him for making PPPs off of it.

Da hell is that, and da hell why haven’t you answered my query, regarding Steve W and that nauseating off-key love song?

immaculate. like a dark green 78 chrysler prowling the streets of brooklyn. those are like four part vocal harmonies in the chorus. i hear three for sure.

"This is a David Fine (also known as William Fewes) inner monologue as the
'agents of the law' (FBI or, as they are known, "federal agents") surround
his room in San Rafael to arrest him for the Sterling Hall bombing in 1970.

He was one of four men that bombed the building on the University of
Wisconsin-Madison campus because it housed the Army Mathematics Research
Center. (Three others were injured.) The 'luckless pedestrian' is the only
casualty of the Sterling Hall bombing, researcher Robert Fassnacht..."

this take supposes the song is about a particular incident that actually happened, but i haven't found confirmation either way from fagen or becker in the articles and interviews i'm looking at.

Okay so it wasn't about any particular incident and was just a general theme... into which that particular incident might fall, but not intentionally, as it were.

"Don't Take Me Alive" continues the outlaw theme: "Got a case of dynamite / I could hold out here all night." "'Don't Take Me Alive' is very much a song of these troubled times," Fagen told NME in 1976. "In Los Angeles and through the world in general, terrorism is a way of life actually for a lot of people. The song was inspired by a run of news items in Los Angeles where people would barricade themselves inside an apartment house or a saloon with an arsenal of weapons. It's about individual madness rather than political situations."

A great song, both politically and socially flavored.
