Thursday by Pet Shop Boys featuring Example
It’s Thursday! There’s no better way to celebrate this glorious day than by watching this glorious live video of Pet Shop Boys’ recent single “Thursday,” which they performed at Terminal 5 in New York on April 26, 2014. Released in 2013, the track is one of PSB’s best singles in years and unlike most of their contemporaries who continue to release extremely lackluster new music, Pet Shop Boys most recent album “Electric” is up there with their best work.
I think it’s a crime this song did not get more attention, but by sharing this video and seeking out the original, there is still time to make this track a hit. The song features an unlikely appearance by the rapper Example and as you are going to see/hear, this song is classic Pet Shop Boys.
Sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover. If the book in question is Matthew Hemerlein aka Lo-Fang, the ‘cover’ will be a musician that is so gorgeous that even if you end up hating his music (which I did not by the way, in fact, quite the opposite), you will have better visual candy than you would see from going to many art galleries. Needless to say, Lo-Fang’s show at Bowery Ballroom on April 27, 2014 was great! Before the night was over, Matthew played violin, cello, bass and guitar and I read on line that he also plays piano! His music is moody and mellow (think Bon Iver meets Gotye) and he is not afraid to rework a beloved classic song or two and make them his own. His take on Ginuwine’s “Pony” was really unexpected and great as was the song you are about to see – “You’re The One That I Want” from the movie Grease. He turned the Olivia Newton-John/John Travolta duet into a gorgeous ballad that is sure to go viral. Pop sensation Lorde enlisted Lo-Fang to open on her recent tour of the US and he performed on Good Morning America today. The future is bright for Lo-Fang and I am looking forward to hearing more great things! Thanks for a great show Matthew!
And now, here’s “You’re The One That I Want.” Please share this with your friends and help make Lo-Fang a star!
Oh Boy! I have been blessed to see the legendary Boy George twice in the last 48 hours.
When I was young and impressionable (yes, can you believe there was a time when that was the case!) and when I had strange feelings that made me start to think “I wasn’t normal,” I had someone like Boy George who dressed as he wanted to, said what he wanted to and refused to compromise to look up to as a role model, and for that, I am so grateful!!! From the earliest stages of his career to present day, Boy George does not give a fuck what you think and never minces words. Those are two qualities that are I still admire to this day and I definitely live my life in that way. There are a lot of haters out there (like people that have nothing better to do than go on According2g.com and leave shitty comments, but THANK YOU for keeping me on the tip of your mind so passionately and for your patronage), so this is for you. Imagine what you could achieve if you channel that hatred elsewhere into something productive? So this song is for you – the song of course is “Victims,” a Culture Club cover that Boy George performed at Irving Plaza in New York on April 22, 2014. Put a little love in your heart. You might be surprised! xx
