What music are you listening to right now? 2: Electric Boogaloo

I’ve been watching the Watchmen series (finally….had tossed in the towel early when it came out) and was very pleased to discover Trent Reznor did a bunch of the soundtrack. However this was a bit of a stunner at the end of an episode.

From Zambia and damn are they ever good.

I’m not normally a fan of strict transcriptions of performances - especially jazz ones. But I’ll make an exception for the brilliant performance notes on the score:

“fat cluster SMASH!”

Steam Powered Giraffe actually change the lead vocals around a bit.

Here’s an old track from the street performer days:

And a newer one:

They do have a liking for harmonies.

(It fits here better than in the games thread.)

Beautiful song and it even features backing vocals by Heilung’s Maria Franz.

God this album can’t get here quick enough

Ear worm time.
The wife asked me to identify her ear worm which turned out to be Total Eclipse of the Heart. So we threw this up on the TV and had a little Bonnie Tyler karaoke

She took lead, me harmony/backup.

Oddly, right after we watched Bridesmaids in which they kept saying “turn around” — apparently coincidence.

The above :point_up_2: got me onto a tropicalismo kick.

A little Latvian vodka assisted, but made dinner to this

Good tempo for mandolin slicing zuke. There’s a Nu metal version of this tune that’s remarkably ok. Not going to link it though.

A later version of San Vincente with Herbie Hancock on piano

The original is still better though
