Spanish people can be cool too!


I love it.

I think everybody who knows me knows that. One of the things I was truly dreading about coming to Spain was being away from the music I liked. I expected to hear nothing but Spanish language music and the occasional mainstream international chart success.

That’s why Vogue surprised me. We only went in cuz one of our group needed a rest stop on the way back to our apartment but when I saw the sign on entering:

Sala 1: Indie, 70s, 80s, 90s, Rock

Sala 2: Electro

my heart skipped a beat. If you had asked me a week ago what I expected to hear in a club in Granada my answer would not have been “Trash” by The Whip. Vogue was a very welcome surprise.

To commemorate this joyous occasion I’ve made another mixtape.

Feast your ears on “Pomegranates and grenades”:

1. Lady GaGa – Beautiful, Dirty, Rich
2. MGMT – Kids (Soulwax remix)
3. Hilary Duff – Reach Out [Bermudez & Chico Radio Mix]
4. Rex The Dog – Circulate
5. Charli XCX – !Franchesckaar! (Lil’d Lucky Boy Re-Mix)
6. The Count & Sinden – Hardcore Girls feat. Rye Rye
7. Crystal Castles/HEALTH – Crimewave (Sinden Remix)
8. Immuzikation – Fortisphere (Immuzikation Blend)
9. Basement Jaxx – War
10. Björk – Innocence (Simian Mobile Disco 12″ Remix)
11. LOO & PLACIDO – Toop Toop Groove

That is SOOOOO gay

It really pisses me off when people use that phrase.
The biggest irony is that the vast majority of people who use the phrase claim not to be homophobic.
But they’re using it in the context of expressing dislike about something.
So you don’t have a problem with gay people but you use the word gay to say something’s shit?!

People confuse me.

So here’s a selection of songs that may justifiably be called gay complete with reasons:

Madonna – Get Together (Anders Bagge & Peer Åström Demo)
(gay cuz it’s Madonna)

Dangerous Muse – Secret ( Live at NewNowNext Awards 2008 )
(gay cuz Dangerous Muse are a fave in the gay media – cover stars of The Advocate, Logo’s NewNowNext Awards performers, etc)

Cyndi Lauper – Into The Nightlife (from the album Bring Ya To The Brink)
(gay cuz Cyndi Lauper is a big time gay rights activist and performed this on a Luke-and-Noah-tastic Oakdale Pride episode of As The World Turns)

Heloise & The Savoir Faire – Odyle (from the album Trash, Rats & Microphones)
(gay cuz they were nominated for Logo’s NewNowNext ‘Brink of Fame: Song’ award)

Cyndi Lauper & Basement Jaxx – I’m From New York
(gay cuz it’s Cyndi Lauper once again and Basement Jaxx make choons that get the gays dancing!)
