I can’t express how excited I am. On a whim I entered a contest over at ModFab. The what happens? I won 2 tickets to see Goldfrapp at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. I am BEYOND excited!!! What does that mean for you!? A week of MP3 goodness!!! You lucky dogs you.

I just got a new dance cover of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’, and was surprised that’s it’s not that bad. It also made me think of the version ex-Sugababe Mutya Buena did for the big Radio 1 anniversary cd last year, which brought in some pop and gospel-lite flourishes. The somber folky tune stands up to varied interpretations, so I’m sharing what I got with you! What do YOU think!?

My iPod magically took a trip down memory lane, and I figured, what the hell let’s share it on the blog. Some late 80’s early 90s dance pop goodness for y’all.

Paula Abdul – Cold Hearted (Chad Jackson 7″ Mix)
Janet Jackson – Escapade (We’ve Got It Made 7″ Mix)


…with Hercules & Love Affair. After all the hype I’d been reading, I got to listen to they’re album on the flight to London and was not disappointed. I bought it when I returned to the states (cheaper in the US… and with 2 bonus tracks), and have fully fallen under their spell. Their melding of so many dance oriented genres blend together so seamlessly, and are emphasized by the atypical selection of vocalists. Expect this to be near the top on my end of 08 countdown!!
