bad girls  mae west

some people won't dance if they don't know who's singing



What is this, 1964? (I looked it up: 1997. Just very intentionally retro.)

It has fucking breakdancing, people.

And Dame Shirley Bassey.

Listen to it.

I love that song. *g*
I knoooooooow.
*BEAM* One of my all time favorites. And little known fact, that album, along with the James Bond Project album got David Arnold the gig as the new composer for the Bond films. (Though he didn't do Skyfall. Was busy composing for the Olympics.)

Pardon the geekery. He and his partner are literally two of my favorite composers. I love that whole album so much!
Trying again. It was 1995, actually. If you like this sort of jazz, guennessa, you'd probably like SomaFM's (internet radio out of SF) "Secret Agent" channel.
Actually, 1997. I looked it up. Just very intentionally retro.
Sweeeeet.

Second the rec for the Secret Agent channel. Lounge music with a jazzy swing makes good tech writing work music, for me anyway.

Love this! Also Tammy Wynette and the Pet Shop Boys on Justified & Ancient.

Now that one is *amazing*!
Oh man. This was one of the albums that was on repeat a lot when I was in college. I didn't realize that was her. Awesome.

(Do I get to say that now? "When I was in college"? I guess I do.)
…and the Propeller Heads!
I first heard (snippets of) this song in a Jaguar commercial. It rocked then, and it rocks now. Must hunt down and capture...
