Something old, Something new, Something borrowed and Something blue: Nov 2010

something old:

From 1968- Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - 'You're All I Need To Get By'. Two legends who both died tragically, the story of Marvin's death is widely know, but Tammi, poor beautiful and talented Tammi died at age 24 due to a brain tumor.

 something new:

Mark Ronson's latest couple of releases have really rocked my boat!!
Even if you don't like the tunes, the clips are great!!!

Mark Ronson & The Business International - Bang Bang Bang

Mark Ronson & The Business International - The Bike Song

something borrowed:

This is old school, for those of us old enough to remember it, and a great cover of the Marvin and Tammi tune that these two make their own.

Method Man Ft. Mary J. Blige - You're All I Need

 something blue: 

Two blues for you Both called 'Jungle Blues'.
The first one, well, Jellyroll, was born in 1885 and died in 1945, his 'jungle blues', from about 1927, is brilliant and reminds me not to forget the music that has come before, because it often has more to say than some of the stuff currently being released.

Ferdinand "Jelly Roll" Morton- Jungle Blues

CW Stoneking was born in the Northern Territory to American parents (according to wikipedia) and now resides in Melbourne. I am not sure what to make of him, I love the music, but is it fake? Am I thinking too much about it, and should i just enjoy it for what ever it is?  The clip is a bit of a laugh because its so bad. OK correction, It's not a laugh, it just is.

CW Stoneking and the primitive horn orchestra- 'Jungle Blues'
