The Full Catastrophe Playlist – 29th August 2009

In TFC on August 29, 2009 at 11:27 am

Where did August go folks?  The last round of the footy before the finals and I am somewhat bemused.  Of course, my eyes are firmly fixed on my beloved Bulldogs (with more than a passing interest in the boofy blokes who turn out for Port Melbourne in the VFL) and my humours will be determined by the bounce of many balls.  To all of you footy fans – may your team bring you joy.

Now to a new guilty pleasure: “Google Translate”.  It turns lingo into barely understandable English – very fun, give to it the going thing. Now for any Icelandic listeners here are my comments again:

Agúst fara alþýðulegur? Í síðustu umferð á footy áður en úrslit og ég er nokkuð bemused. Auðvitað, augu mín eru fast bundnar við uppáhalds Bulldogs minn (með fleiri en brottför áhugi á boofy blokes sem snúa út að Port Melbourne í VfL) og humours mínum verða ákvörðuð af hopp af mörgum boltum. Ef ykkur öllum footy fans – geta lið þitt fært þér gleði

You can’t say fairer that that. Imagine the fun we are going to have with this come Eurovision time…..

Now the TFC playlist or, as the Romanians say, acum, în lista de redare Catastrofa completa

Hot Stuff – Donna Summer

Dixie Fried – Carl Perkins

The Night Has A Thousand Eyes – Bobby Vee

Now this is MUST CLICK!! Camp ? You haven’t seen the half of it.

Helicopter – The Inches

I Touch Myself – Divinyls

SkylinerCharlie Barnet & Ochestra

Love Me Do – The Beatles

With My Little Ukele In My Hand – George Formby

Formby was a hugely popular English performer in the 30s and 40s.  He specialised in songs heavily larded with double entendres. Most of the songs he sang were about willies – not to put too fine on it.

Be The One – Ting Tings

Surabaya Santa – Jessica Molaskey

Born To Be Wild – Steppenwolf

I Yi, I Yi, I Yi, I Yi – Carmen Miranda

Ah Carmen.  She of the lavish costume and outrageous headgear. If you have never seen here, click on the link and feast your eyes.

The Revival – Sunrise Not Secular

No Pity – Jackie Wilson

This Could Be The Start Of  Something Big – Bobby Darin

The In Crowd – Ramsey Lewis

The coolest of cool tracks.  Brian Ferry did a version with a lyric, but for mine Mr Lewis delivers the hip vibe.

J’ai Peur De L’Automne – Jean Sablon

September Song – Walter Huston

Two versions of the great Kurt Weil/Maxwell Anderson song from the improbably named “Knickerbocker Holiday”

Gimme, Gimme, Gimme – Lee Adam Wilshier

The Bones Of You – Elbow

A fab new discovery.  The website is over designed to the max, but don’t let that put you off.

True Love – Busi & Ilanga

Round, Round –  Sugababes
